(NaturalNews) Fidel Castro, now dead at 90, was a communist tyrant who oppressed his people, ordered the deaths of his political enemies, and turned Cuba into such a human hell that tens of thousands of his own citizens risked their lives to flee the island nation in search of freedom.
Today, thousands of Cuban exiles who fled Castro’s tyranny took to the streets in Miami to celebrate a world without Castro, reports the Miami Herald:
Fidel Castro died, and Cuban Miami did what it does in times of community celebration: It spilled onto the streets of Little Havana — and Hialeah, and Kendall — to honk horns, bang pans, and set off more than a few fireworks… The scene across Miami-Dade County, the cradle of the Cuban exile community, was one of pure, raw emotion. This time, after decades of false alarms, Castro’s death was real.
But members of the so-called “lamestream media” — NYT, WashPost, CNN, MSNBC and so on– celebrated the “achievements” of Castro, fawning over his tyrannical rule, dishing out heaps of praise for his “accomplishments.”
In doing so, the commie-loving members of the lamestream media reveal themselves to be communist sympathizers who pose a real danger to the freedoms and liberties of America.
New York Times: Castro a “savior”
The New York Times, whose owner recently announced he would get the paper back to reporting accurate news after a year and a half of fabricating false accusations against Donald Trump, practically assigned sainthood to Castro, praising his defiance of the USA and describing him as a “savior” to the Cuban people. (Yes, the New York Times is run by communist sympathizers who genuinely hate liberty and who hope to turn the United States into a larger version of Cuba, run by a female tyrant like Hillary Clinton.)
Newsbusters compiled several more gushing love-fest comments about Castro from the left-wing media in the United States, quoting the “journalists” who even hailed Castro as a “George Washington!”
“Fidel Castro, who died late Friday night, was a tyrant who oppressed Cubans and brought misery to many for several decades and while much of the breaking news coverage emphasized that reality, journalists on ABC, CNN and MSNBC — matching how too much of the media approached Castro for decades — couldn’t resist crediting him for supposed great advancements in education, literacy and health care,” writes Newsbusters:
On MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell insisted in a stock bio that Castro “gave his people better health care and education.” Appearing live by phone, she soon trumpeted how Castro “will be revered” for “education and social services and medical care to all of his people.”
Along a similar theme, in an ABC Special Report during Nightline, Jim Avila maintained that “even Castro’s critics praised his advances in health care and in education.”
In a relatively tough report on Castro’s abuses, CNN’s Martin Savidge, in a pre-recorded bio piece, highlighted how “many saw positives, education and health care for all, racial integration.”
A meandering Brian Williams popped up by phone on MSNBC to ruminate and recalled how in his last visit to Cuba, in 2015: “You see the medicine system they are very proud of.”
ABC’s Avila went so far as to tout how Castro “was considered, even to this day, the George Washington of his country among those who remain in Cuba.”
Reminiscing about his high school years, via phone on MSNBC, Chris Matthews asserted that Castro was “a romantic figure when he came into power” and, Matthews wasn’t embarrassed to relay, “we rooted like mad for the guy” who “was almost like a folk hero to most of us.”
Donald Trump gets it right: Castro was a “brutal dictator” who brought misery and suffering to millions
President-elect Donald Trump nailed the correct response to Castro by issuing a statement that said, “Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades… [The Castro regime was] one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.”
As this Breitbart.com story explains, Trump is now calling for a “free Cuba” to end the era of suffering under a brutal dictator:
“While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve,” Trump said.
Trump promised that his administration would pursue a policy focused on freeing the Cuban people, and thanked the Cuban Americans who supported him for president.
“[O]ur administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty,” he said. “I join the many Cuban Americans who supported me so greatly in the presidential campaign, including the Brigade 2506 Veterans Association that endorsed me, with the hope of one day soon seeing a free Cuba.
Left-wing media “journalists” really do worship totalitarian communist dictators… and they hope to turn America into a communist stronghold
Lest you have any doubts whatsoever about the real mission of the political left, its celebration of the life of a communist tyrant answers the question once and for all: Left-wing “journalists” are seditious, anti-American communist wannabes.
They literally celebrate brutal dictators and tyrants on the left. Cuba is the kind of world under which they hope to live, which is precisely why every single one of them, without exception, supported Hillary Clinton for President.
To the left, all crimes against humanity are acceptable if they carried out in the furtherance of liberal political ideology: Firing squads, the elimination of private property, the banning of guns in the hands of private citizens, the government confiscation of personal assets and a state-run media are all perfectly fine to them. In fact, they love it! They can’t wait to turn America into a communist regime modeled after Cuba. Hence their labeling of Castro as their “George Washington.”
Do I need to remind you that leftists who love communism are a grave danger to America? They deliberately seek to undermine democracy. For the last 18 months, left-wing journalists deliberately and maliciously lied day after day to try to put a commie-leaning politician into the White House. They despise democracy and they despise the voters. All they seek is total domination over the populace, even if liberty and freedom have to be crushed along the way.
This is why radio host Michael Savage says America must invoke the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAAC) and investigate the anti-American traitors who are pretending to be journalists. If they are allowed to keep poisoning the minds of the American people, they may yet succeed in overthrowing the Republic and installing their own Castro-like dictatorship across America.
The nation was very nearly at that point until recently, come to think of it. The entire lamestream media is state-run media. “Journalists” who work for CNN, WashPost, NYT, etc., are almost all socialist or communist-leaning propagandists who deliberate try to undermine the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights and Electoral College. Now, they are determined to destroy the Trump presidency by any means possible, including fabricating fake news while attempting to censor all the independent REAL news by labeling it “fake news.” (In other words, the lamestream media has lost the debate, so they must now turn to censorship to maintain their monopoly over “news.”)
That smacks of a Fidel Castro tactic for state-controlled media, doesn’t it? And it’s no surprise, since the lamestream media actively desires a centralized, state-run media monopoly that outlaws all dissenting views. (As part of this mainstream media lunacy, just yesterday the Washington Post accused Natural News of being controlled by the Russian government. No, it wasn’t a satire piece. They reported it as if it were factual!)
All this is a perfect reflection of the kind of tyranny and brutality Castro himself inflicted upon the people of Cuba. Now, commie-leaning news operatives like Andrea Mitchell want to inflict the same brutality, censorship and disinformation upon the people of America. That is their mission: To destroy liberty, destroy the Constitution, override democracy and install a tyrant in Washington who wields absolute power over the economy, the media and the culture of America. (Obama very nearly pulled it all off, too… it’s going to take Trump at least four years just to unwind all the damage Obama has already done.)
Reader comments explain reality far better than any left-wing “journalist”
Reader comments from the Newsbusters.org article:
Fidel Castro turned the most beautiful piece of real estate into a third world toilet and turned some beautiful people into terrorized captives. Obama is truly, deeply an idiot for admiring people like Castro. Under Castro’s brother, Cuba will remain an oppressive regime that can imprison someone for life with no evidence, no jury, no rights, no freedoms at all. Trading with Cuba puts hard currency into the hands of dictators to firm up their oppressive regime. Obama loves China. No freedoms, no rights. He loves Iran. No freedoms, no rights, building a nuclear bomb. Obama flew them over $1 billion in unmarked bills to help them out. Obama has the most perverted world view… yet his supporters are often the liberal-minded folks who don’t seem to mind if OTHER NATIONS are oppressed. Thank you, Lord, that Obama is almost done.
From user “Blonde Gator”:
You’d be even more sickened if you’d grown up, as I did, here in South Florida. I was very young (maybe first grader) when I began to meet ex-pat kids, and their families, and learn their stories. Not much has changed since the early 60’s, either, with the steady stream of people fleeing Cuba.
I had a woman who worked for me, who’d left when she was 2. She went back about ten years ago, before Americans were allowed to, via a circuitous route via Mexico City, etc. She was only allowed 42 lbs. of luggage, and she stored up on things like soap, shampoo, and other “basic” necessities, which we, of course take for granted. To solve the clothes problem, since her suitcase was full, she wore about 10 changes of clothing on the plane!
When she got back, she was super tan (this lady was whiter than someone who lives in England)…because she had to walk everywhere…no transportation anywhere outside of Havana. Her relatives (whom she’d never met) were so grateful for her gifts. Can you imagine what it must be like to not meet any of your relatives until you were in your mid-40’s?
And that’s just ONE story. There are hundreds of thousands of them. The Mariel Boat Lift, the wet-foot, dry-foot rafters.
THESE are the stories which should be told today, not the fever-brained fairy tales of the “wonderful Fidel” that the leftist media will spew. I’m glad he’s dead. I hope the people of Cuba can now take Cuba back from the fascists.
From another user:
We will see EXACTLY how poorly educated the leftists are, as they sing their praises of Fidel, who was nothing more than a brutal dictator. Keep a weather eye out on this site, the spew of stupidity praising Fidel is going to be epic.
Keep your eyes open over the next few days as Michael Moore praises Castro, too. Every leftist loves communism… maybe we should deport them all to North Korea and give them their wish!
