Marco Rubio Statement on The Death of Fidel Castro

Saturday, November 26, 2016 9:23
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s still morning, and I am already fuming at the fawning statements are issuing about Fidel Castro in the wake of his death at the age of 90. The man was a dictator and a thug. He was not a “revolutionary” nor was he a “leader.” It would be worth it to see him cremated so that families of victims could pee on his ashes.

Thankfully, Marco Rubio is not joining in with the likes of Jesse Jackson and others to praise Castro. He released a statement:

“Fidel Castro seized power promising to bring freedom and prosperity to Cuba, but his communist regime turned it into an impoverished island prison. Over six decades, millions of Cubans were forced to flee their own country, and those accused of opposing the regime were routinely jailed and even killed.

“Sadly, Fidel Castro’s death does not mean freedom for the Cuban people or justice for the democratic activists, religious leaders, and political opponents he and his brother have jailed and persecuted. The dictator has died, but the dictatorship has not. And one thing is clear, history will not absolve Fidel Castro; it will remember him as an evil, murderous dictator who inflicted misery and suffering on his own people.

That is the best way to describe Castro.

It is going to be a long weekend of hot takes, nonsense about “free” healthcare, garbage about literacy rates, and enthusiastic praise from leftists who are already treating Castro’s death with more respect than they did Ronald Reagan’s.

I am hoping to see more statements like Senator Rubio’s.
