Castro: Icon of the Progressives

The death of Fidel Castro allows Castro's name to be added alongside Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Mussolini and other brutal dictators in the long pantheon of tyrants who used firing squads and prisons to enforce their "goals for the people."  When you know all the answers, then you can use any method available to silence dissent and control the population.  Castro knew no limits to terror, violence and murder.  The result: a shriveled society with an average monthly income of $ 20.  Meanwhile Castro's personal wealth was estimated to be over $ 900 million in 2006.  This is the progressive end game.

As expected, Obama and the his political 'comrades' (including Vladimir Putin, Jimmy Carter, Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau, UN Secretary General) lauded the brutal Castro and his regime.  Trump, to his credit, did not laud Castro. Trump condemned him.  Trump had the right response; Obama is on the wrong side of history (and morality).

It's time the White House took down the pictures of their heroes -- Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, the Reverend Wright, and put Winston Churchill's bust back where it belongs.   We should stop celebrating would-be and actual murderers.
