Yes, he is reportedly dead, Miami’s Little Havana community celebrates. I hope we have enough therapy dogs to handle all the snowflakes’ new grief? Ronald Reagan at his best.
Fidel Castro, the Marxist degenerate who took over Cuba and turned it into an impoverished island prison, has died, and not a moment too soon.
Castro will forever be romanticized by the American left for his revolutionary chic attire and anti-western swagger, and because hipsters freaking love beards. But make no mistake, this man was an absolute monster. The Babalu Blog, an anti-Castro oasis on the internet, chronicles some of his worst atrocities:
The Cuba Archive which documents deaths and disappearances resulting from Fidel Castro’s Cuban revolution has documented 3,615 firing squad executions conducted by the Cuban state since Castro took over on January 1, 1959.
Opponents of the death penalty should be horrified at the amount of death Fidel Castro and his accomplices have directly caused. It’s important to note that in Revolutionary Cuba there are none of the due process guarantees found in a western-style democracy. Most of Castro’s firing squad victims were afforded only a perfunctory show trial the outcome of which was predetermined, some didn’t even get that. Ernesto “Ché” Guevara is a popular culture icon, his face adorns posters and t-shirts around the globe. Most people don’t realize that he was Fidel Castro’s chief enforcer and had a personal hand in at least 100 firing squad executions, often delivering the coup de grace personally. In response to questions about Castro’s firing squads Guevara once said, “To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary. These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution. And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.”
Castro’s effort to remake the country as a Marxist paradise turned a beautiful island nation into a prison colony. Over the years Castro ruled Cuba with an iron fist, hundreds of thousands of Cubans fled the island on anything that could float, establishing a vibrant, freedom loving community in Miami. Last night, they came together to celebrate the tyrant’s death. Per CNN:
News of Fidel Castro’s death was quick to reach Miami, Florida, the center of the Cuban exile community, where an outpouring of emotion brought jubilant crowds onto the streets of Little Havana.
Some popped champagne corks, others clanged pots and waved the Cuban flag as they cheered the death of a man who defined the lives of so many of their number through decades in exile in the United States.
Hundreds gathered outside the neighborhood’s Versailles restaurant, a longtime haunt of the exile community, spilling out on to the street from the sidewalk as they chanted, sang, danced and took smart phone videos of a historic moment.
We at American Action News stand with those folks in Miami, and we hope that Castro’s death puts us one step closer to consigning communism and its related totalitarian, collectivist ideological cousins to the dustbin of history where they belong.
