Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is considered to be a very soft and handsome guy – the kind that only a hipster or metrosexual could appreciate. That's about where the list of good things about him ends. He's a socialist, and an Islamic sympathizer. Don't believe me? His tribute complimenting Fidel Castro as “remarkable” and a “larger than life leader who served his people” pretty much spells out that calling him a socialist is an understatement.
Trudeau added that his late father, Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau “was very proud to call him a friend.” Castro had been an honorary pallbearer at his father's funeral.
“If this is a real statement from the PM of Canada it is shameful & embarrassing,” tweeted the U.S. Senator and former presidential candidate of Cuban heritage.
U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, who fled Cuba with her family when she was 8 and became the first American of Cuban birth elected to Congress, was not impressed with Trudeau either.
She said, ”I've been reading his sickening love letter to dead Fidel Castro and I'm thinking, 'Sure, you did not lose a loved one to an execution squad. You did not lose a loved one to the gulags in Cuba.'”
“The only thing that Fidel has been successful in, has not been health nor education, or human rights or democracy, it's been holding onto power — which is easy to do when you don't have elections,” she continued.
Another person tweeted an image of a dark North Korea contrasted with a brightly lit South Korea and wrote: “Kim Jong il will always be remembered fondly for his leadership and contributions on climate change.”
