With the death of Fidel Castro, we mark a century of leftist defenses of brutal dictators.

Following the Bolshevik Revolution and the rise to power of the bloodthirsty V.I. Lenin, Western leftists couldn’t say enough about the wonderful new society being born in Russia. “I have been over into the future, and it works!” proclaimed journalist Lincoln Steffens, professional idiot.

There were many, many — MANY — similar statements; I scratched the surface in The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History, my biggest bestseller. The terror famine in Ukraine, which killed millions, was covered up by Walter Duranty of the New York Times, and other leftists said it was just anti-Stalin propaganda.

So when honest journalists like Malcolm Muggeridge tried to tell the world what was really happening, his claims seemed dubious, or at least debatable.

Mao Tse-tung, perhaps the century’s greatest mass murderer, was of course a wonderful “agrarian reformer.”

Fidel Castro was a patriot who loved his country.

And so on.
