President-elect Donald Trump speaks the truth
Cuba’s Communist dictator Fidel Castro has died at age 90. In March of this year, Barack Obama used an executive order to normalize relations with the repressive regime after traveling to the struggling island nation 90 miles off Florida’s southern coast.
It’s worth noting that the reliably liberal Washington Post wrote this scathing assessment of Obama’s actions. The editorial stated that Obama’s acquiescence “eliminated U.S. leverage for political reforms.”
To commemorate Castro, Obama issued a statement expressing sympathy, saying in part, “At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people. Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro’s family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people.’ Obama neglected to mention Castro’s decades-long, tyrannical suppression of human rights, imposition of forced labor and the brutal subjugation, disappearances and nearly 4,000 murder by firing squad of Cuban citizens Castro considered dissenters. Such truths don’t fit Obama’s paradigm.
Cuban Americans, who risked their lives fleeing the Communist regime, greeted the news of Castro’s death by dancing in the streets.
Arizona Republicrat Sen. Jeff Flake, a longtime supporter of opening diplomatic relations and tourist travel with the Communist regime was along as a willing GOP prop for his basketball playing pal Barack Obama, with whom Flake’s cultivated a fast friendship.
Will there be a state trip to Cuba to pay respects to the evil dictator? It should be remembered that Obama snubbed the funeral of Great Britain’s conservative Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
The embarrassing Pope Francis, a fellow traveler who met Fidel Castro when he visited Cuba last year, sent a telegram in Spanish to Fidel’s younger brother Raul, who currently rules the island, saying he had received the “sad news” of “the death of your dear brother,” adding, “I express to you my sentiments of grief.”
Not to be outdone, 92-year-old Democrat former president Jimmy Carter also mourned the murderous dictator, saying: “Rosalynn and I share our sympathies with the Castro family and the Cuban people on the death of Fidel Castro. We remember fondly our visits with him in Cuba and his love of his country. We wish the Cuban citizens peace and prosperity in the years ahead.’ The tyrannical Castro had an odd way of exhibiting his “Love of his country.”
President-elect Donald Trump stood alone as a beacon of freedom as he issued this cogent statement: “The world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades; Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.”
In a dramatic repudiation of both the radical status quo, and the unreliable Establishment, America clearly picked a winner on November 8, 2016.
