So I figure they might have Obama under suicide watch after the death of his brother-in-arms and bosom chum, the murderous, vile despot Castro. I will admit this, though: I don’t think Ogabe’s move to re-establish some sort of relations with Cuba was an entirely bad thing, really. I wasn’t totally happy about it, naturally; there probably was a right way to go about it, but if so, it’s certain Obama would never have found find it…because he wouldn’t have been looking. Given his own hard-Left beliefs, his interest was always going to lean more towards propping the Castro regime up rather than pressuring it to abandon its disastrous proven-failure ideology.
All that said, good riddance to one of the most evil Leftist dictators ever to blight a nation. I won’t speculate on how likely it is that the Cuban people will soon throw off the chains of socialism for good—we have way too much work at the same task ahead of us ourselves, and we’ve been dragged nowhere near as far down that bleak road as they—but I wish them every success just the same.
Burn in Hell, Fidel.
Sickening update! Think I’m exaggerating when I say the Democrat Socialists are ideological compatriots of Castro? Even a tiny bit? Think again, bub.
In many ways, after 1959, the oppressed the world over joined Castro’s cause of fighting for freedom & liberation-he changed the world. RIP pic.twitter.com/ReOLnMCxE7

“Rosalynn and I share our sympathies with the Castro family and the Cuban people on the death of Fidel Castro. We remember fondly our visits with him in Cuba and his love of his country. We wish the Cuban citizens peace and prosperity in the years ahead.”
“We extend our condolences to the Cuban people today as they mourn the passing of Fidel Castro. Over more than half a century, he played an outsized role in their lives, and he influenced the direction of regional, even global affairs.
As our two countries continue to move forward on the process of normalization — restoring the economic, diplomatic and cultural ties severed by a troubled past — we do so in a spirit of friendship and with an earnest desire not to ignore history but to write a new and better future for our two peoples.”
“It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President.
“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. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba.
“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.”

Every last one of these loathsome scoundrels should be ashamed of themselves. But there’s a refreshing antidote to this nauseating hagiography and suck-uppery, and it’s right here.
