Included in Obama’s statement upon the death of Catro is this phrase – “recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation.”
Ya think? Castro certainly altered the course of individual lives-thousands upon thousands brutally murdered, imprisoned, hounded, intimidated, not to mention the attacks upon religion and conscience, the heart-rendering separation of families, and bringing the world to the brink of nuclear war. The Castro brothers have been thugs and brutes while they ensconced themselves in power, enjoying their luxuries, women, and self-indulgence.
Obama began his administration pandering to the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo, and he is ending it by lending credibility to the legacy of Fidel. The best thing to be said about Castro is that he is gone. The Democrats lost FL in the election in part due to the fogged moral vision of the President with respect to Castro, as Cuban refugees kept alive in their hearts the memory of the Catastrophe of Cuba.
