Useful Idiots Sing Castro’s Praises. Who is the Worst? [VIDEO]

A cavalcade of prominent leftists made use of social and broadcast media to express their sorrow statements on the passing of Fidel Castro, who is now taking a dirt, er, ash nap as I write. Who is the worst of this sorry lot?

  • Jill Stein. Yes, that Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate who wants a recount of ballots in three states to preserve the “integrity” of our voting system. She was full-throated in her effusive praise of a monster who embodied anything but integrity during his reign of terror in Cuba.

  • President Obama. Somewhat more nuanced in his expressed opinion of Castro, Obama nonetheless avoided the “dictator” label, and then foisted the assessment of Castro onto future generations in his official statement:  “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.”  A most deft way to avoid the ugly truth. But as usual, Obama fell into his default mode of lauding — who else? — himself:

 “During my presidency, we have worked hard to put the past behind us, pursuing a future in which the relationship between our two countries is defined not by our differences but by the many things that we share as neighbors and friends – bonds of family, culture, commerce, and common humanity.”

  • Jeremy Corbyn. We cross the Pond to find this nugget of nonsense from Britain’s Labour Party Leader:

“Fidel Castro’s death marks the passing of a huge figure of modern history, national independence and 20th century socialism.”

“From building a world class health and education system, to Cuba’s record of international solidarity abroad, Castro’s achievements were many.”

“For all his flaws, Castro’s support for Angola played a crucial role in bringing an end to Apartheid in South Africa and he will be remembered both as an internationalist and a champion of social justice.”

Yeah. He’s a nutter.

  • Geraldo Rivera. What would journalism be without the bullshit commentary of Geraldo Rivera? Here he is on Fox News Channel, attempting to be even-handed about the legacy of Castro. But then Rivera’s inner Lefty emerges, and before you know it he’s lionizing Castro as a hero.

  • Justin Trudeau. How can we forget the gushing praise heaped upon the dead dictator by the dashing, handsome, and utterly vapid young Canadian Prime Minister?

Little Justin and his hero Fidel.

“Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.”

“While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro’s supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for “el Comandante”.

“I know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away.”

Yes, Justin Trudeau was born to bromance the Cuban dictator, as his father Pierre had done when he was Prime Minister in the in the 1960’s through the 1970’s. Castro even served as an honorary pallbearer at Pierre Trudeau’s funeral.

Bros: Pierre Trudeau and Fidel Castro.

And now let’s have some tributes from the Where Are They Now Department:

  • Former President Jimmy Carter. He must be trying to ensure his position as Worst POTUS Ever with this statement. It beats that of his rival, President Obama.

I mean, Jimmy played baseball with the dude! So it’s all good!

  • Jesse Jackson. We must include this beaut from the erstwhile man-of-the-cloth, the Reverend Jackson, praising his atheist pal Fidel. Fidel, of course, had no problem throwing Christians in prison.

Love thy neighbor? Thou shalt not kill? Fidel was so much more cool back in the day than those stuffy Southern Baptists.

What is it about leftists and their affinity for dictators? They promote themselves as champions of liberty and freedom, but when an oppressive Communist dictator dies, they cry tears and wax lyrical about what splendid fellows these abhorrent brutes were.

Meanwhile, the free Cubans of Miami’s Little Havana rejoice in the streets, gleeful at the demise of Fidel Castro, and looking forward to the day when brother Raul assumes room temperature, and their lovely island nation can become prosperous, and — most importantly — free.

    “In your cable of October 27 you proposed that we be the first to carry out a nuclear strike against the enemy’s territory. Naturally you understand where that would lead us. It would not be a simple strike, but the start of a thermonuclear world war.”

    An excerpt from a communication sent by Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to (underscore “to” about a half dozen times and put it in bold type) Comrade Fidel Castro. [For the rest of the article see: http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2016/11/castro-wanted-nuclear-war.php%5D

    The man who would have started WW III is being mourned by those who want to compare him to George Washington. They ought to glad that the shoe-pounding-on-a-podium-at-the-U.N. Khrushchev had more sense than Castro.

  • Stephanie says:

    Why would you call them “Useful Idiots”? I think a better title would be “Useless Idiots”.

    • Kim Quade says:

      “Useful idiots” is a phrase attributed to Lenin, but no one really knows from where it arose. Generally it refers to liberals who are easily duped into serving Communists.
      Thanks for reading.

  • Jacmo says:

    All the accolades and praises coming forth for Castro show just how much current history has been rewritten. And contemptible is the one word that comes to mind when describing our media for not reporting the truth about this murdering tyrant.
    The saddest part in all this is the fact that the whitewashing of history is being taught to our children.
    George Santayana’s statement “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” is as current today as when he wrote it.
