Tribute to Fidel Castro - I vow to thee my country Watch
- Political Ambassador
Castro was a sheep, wasn't even a communist for the first two years of his reign then jumped on the bandwagon because he realised via Stalin and Mao that "crushing the bourgeoisie" (whatever that means) is actually a good excuse for murdering all opposition to your reign! Who knew? /s
Most of the world's revolutionary dictators are made not born. The megalomaniacs are few in number. The others end up murdering and gaoling to protect their personal security and the cause for which they fought. Cuba, with American support, could have returned to democracy under the early Castro.
promises of free elections and liberty...and "anti-communist liberation"...
and 50 years later...errr...yeah, he's still here, as an unquestionable *communist* dictator (or he was until 09) with his ****ing brother as his replacement. I mean if that doesn't spell out "corrupt, nepotistic autocrat" in the same way it does in north korea, what the **** would? people say cuba is a great example of communism and castro was a good leader...****ing how though? people in cuba live on $20 a day, while the castros...were/are multi-millionaires...jezza called him a "champion of social justice"...how?! cuba healthcare really isn't very good too - they simply pump more resources into healthcare in cuba (and even then, it's pretty piss poor by modern western standards) and detract from a lot of other very important sectors and areas...
also, anybody remember the cuban missile crisis? castro ENCOURAGED the hostilities and he egged on the kremlin to not back down. he was an ecourager of NUCLEAR WAR.
and did I forget to mention that cuba for several years now is going to way of the SU and PRC in that they're having to privatise a **** load of industries because COMMUNISM IS MAKING CUBA POORER?
**** fidel, and che guevara. especially che guevara. a total facade. che guevara is a classic example of how enough propaganda will propel a murderous stalin-wannabe into frame and glory; the t shirts with his face on are a product of WESTERN CAPITALISM, not communism, too. so to wear such things is the biggest load of hypocritical insanity imaginable. it's very typical of the left - protesting capitalism and then heading straight to starbucks...and it's also very audacious of the left to support such a brutal dictator simply because of the fact that health care there is better than the other surrounding islands - is a brutal dictatorial regime of suffering and needless, endless misery really that much of a good price for slightly better healthcare?!
