Ted Cruz, Other Leaders React to Fidel Castro’s Death

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Fidel Castro was a Communist dictator.

He was no mythic hero, as some on the left would have you believe.

He was the author of breathtaking human rights violations and anyone seeking to craft his epilogue into a fable, concerning who he really was should be shut down, immediately.

(I’m looking at you, Sean Penn.)

Expect to hear a lot about his life and the legacy of ruin he leaves behind in Cuba, today. Scan the headlines and watch the news footage of Cuban-Americans celebrating the end of the man who drove many of them to risk their lives to escape his regime.

Some even have family still languishing in Castro’s Cuba.

I’ve been popping around the internet, reading some of the reactions of American leaders to the news.

Senator Ted Cruz, whose father, Rafael Cruz, came from Cuba to the U.S. in the late 50s, posted this short statement on his Facebook page:

Fidel Castro’s death cannot bring back his thousands of victims, nor can it bring comfort to their families.

Today we remember them and honor the brave souls who fought the lonely fight against the brutal Communist dictatorship he imposed on Cuba.

To the point.

Remembering the victims of Castro’s regime is a much more fitting way of marking the day.

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse has been tweeting lists of books on Cuba or movies about Cuba that people should see. He also tweeted this out:

Senator Marco Rubio, who just won his reelection bid to his Florida senate seat, is the child of Cuban immigrants.

His office sent out a much stronger statement on the death of Castro.

Then, of course, there is our President-elect Trump, who really captured the spirit of the day.

Absolutely Churchill-ean.

Castro’s brother, Raul, has been serving as the interim leader of Cuba for several years, now. Expect him to be officially named to the position, and the degradation of the people will continue.
