Fidel Castro died recently, and if you listened to the response from our liberal world leaders, you’d get the impression that we just lost a great man. Look at the Cubans who escaped Castro’s regime celebrating in Miami, and you’d realize just the opposite.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau earned himself endless mockery for reacting to the news with an official statement reading, “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.”
The leader of the UK’s Labor Party Jeremy Corbyn offered a personal tribute, stating “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.”
Barack Obama wasn’t much better. Though he didn’t praise or condemn Fidel, he did wish his condolences to his family.
If Ronald Reagan were still around today, I think we all know he wouldn’t have gone easy on Fidel. In fact, while serving as President, Fidel often became a target of his jokes.
Here are some of his Soviet joke:
Wouldn’t it be great if we had a President with this wit for the past eight years? If only!
