Fidel Castro will forever be a hero to freedom fighters
Descendants of Africans and Native peoples have borne the brunt racism at the hands of white European descendants. A large cohort of the Cubans who fled the Castro regime were white and well-to-do if not wealthy. More than any other country in the Hemisphere, Mr Castro's Cuba did the most to slay the demon of racism. Finally, Mr Castro showed the rest of the world that no country can ever achieve much without a determined elite committed to the national interest. The Cubans punished greed and corruption without pity. The ruling elite wasn't allowed to enrich itself at the expense of citizens. One can disagree with the policy choices made by the Cuban elite — and their effectiveness — but one can't question their clarity, single-mindedness, their anchor in what they saw as the national interest, and their Global South bias. Fidel will never die — history will continuously live in his remarkable legacy.

POOR DELUDED MHz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!
He does not recognize that the Soviet Union was a dictatorship!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And he does not recognize Vladimir Putin as a dictator either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I dont know what kind of school MHz went to but it CLEARLY had NO mandate to teach the truth about HISTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As for that Cuban dictator Castro the beloved family friend of Trudeau family Soviets- Amnesty International has a lot to say about the vile abuses that any Cuban can be subjected to if the Cuban Soviet govt chooses to punish a dissenting voice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our idiot Boy Justin has some highly suspect pals! First there Taliban nutbar and former Mennonite Boyle- the guy was once married to Zaynab Khadr- the Isis worshipping sister of bomb maker Omar Khadr and later Boyle got married again and took his pregnant wife to the Afghan war zone- for reasons never explained and ended up in a Taliban prison.
Upon his release, he had a cozy little meeting with his OLD FRIEND Justin Trudope!
And then there is the Sikh Atwal- convicted of attempting to kill a Hindu politician in India- with Atwal apparently being allowed into India after LIE-berals petitioned Indian officials- and now Our idiot Boy Justin is puzzled why Indian leaders do not want to talk to him due to the offense he has given!
And most damaging of all is the “life long” friendship between the Trudope clan and bloody handed Cuban dictator Castro!
Here is an article illustrating what life was like under Soviet style Cuban dictator Castro- the bosom buddy of all the Trudope clan-the bloody handed butcher who Our idiot Boy Justin likes to call a close family friend- this would be the same Castro that Sacha Trudope- brother of Our idiot Boy has referred to as the “greatest South American leader of the 20th century and much superior to any merely elected leader”!
Trudope family admiration for ALL manner of of bloody handed dictators is hard to stomach! It was Pierre Trudope- father of both morons- who took Justin and Sacha to Cuba when they were kids and introduced them to Castro.
Our Pet Pierre wrote in his book - Two Innocents in Red China - “of the genius of Chairman Mao in rushing 30 million Chinese to the gallows” merely to cement his bloody hold on power! With friends like these the Trudope clan are no friends of freedom or democracy!
Here is the article- with some comments of my own in brackets):

CHRONICLE OF AN UNFORGETTABLE AGONY: CUBA'S POLITICAL PRISONS
CONTACTO MAGAZINE. Sep't 96.
By Jesus Hernandez Cuellas
Julio Antonio Yebra M.D. shook the hand of each member of his firing squad and told them that he forgave them. The order to shoot mixed with his own scream condemning communism, and his lifeless body hung from the pole to which it had been tied. Seconds later we heard the final shot to the head. In one of the prison wings at the Presidio Modelo in Isla de Pinos, Cuco Muniz and Armando Valladares were having a conversation in front of cell 35 when a human shadow fell from above and crashed on the cement, down below. It was Jesus Lopez Cuevas. He had thrown himself, in a suicidal jump, from the fourth floor. He was dead.
Pedro Luis Boitel, former candidate to the presidency of the University's Student Federation, believed that human beings should demand respect for themselves through any means. He undertook a tenacious hunger strike which led to international repercussions and complicitous silence. He died dehydrated on May 24, 1972, after 53 days without nourishment in a Cuban prison. Before then he had taken part in many hunger strikes.
(Too many people follow the Trudeau style beliefs- that the Soviet system is much maligned and slandered and refuse to believe how much blood is spilled by Soviets- or even worse- they believe the deaths are necessary to “protect” the revolution!)
Fortunately, Mario Chanes de Armas survived that hell, but at the price of spending 30 years in Castro's prisons, which turned him into the longest held political prisoner in the world. Chanes de Armas suffered such fate in spite of having participated alongside Fidel Castro in the assault on the Moncada Barracks in Santiago de Cuba, on July 26, 1953; after having taken part in the Granma trip from Veracruz, Mexico, landing on the eastern coast of Cuba, in 1956, which would mark the beginning of the armed struggle against the Batista regime and which found him, on the eve of the Revolution's triumph, in one of Fulgencio Batista's cells.
(Soviet style dictators have a LONG history of turning on each other! Leon Trotsky was number 2 man under Lenin in the early days of the Russian Soviet Revolution and yet Lenin turned on him and Trotsky fled away to Mexico. The Soviet number 3 man- Lavrenty Beria- leader of the Soviet Secret Police- dispatched 3 agents- travelling on CANADIAN passports- to Mexico where Trotsky was murdered with an axe blow to the head- and Beria moved up from 3rd to 2nd spot in Soviet Russia! Murder is a typical Soviet route to promotion!)
(And the Chinese Communist party- which Our idiot Boy Justin has told us “he admires for the way they get things done” - has a similar method of getting “promoted”- Chinese Communists are just as happy as Russians to kill off opposition! One has only to aks what happened to former Chinese strong man Chou En Lai- former spokesman for Chinese Foreign Affairs under Mao- during and after the president Nixon years- once Mao died- so did Chou En Lai! But unlike Mao, Chou did NOT die of old age!)
(In fact- various reports suggest that the first year that Castro spent in control became known to Cubans as “The Year of the Firing Squads”! In other words this is business as usual for Communists! That other vicious killer Cambodian Pol Pot was notable simply for being more efficient in killing “anti Soviets” than was considered the standard even for Soviet butchers!)
"I've never felt hatred or wished for vengeance against anyone, I will never be able to be a judge or a prosecutor", Chanes de Armas stated to CONTACTO, who stayed in prison from July 1961 until July 1991, accused of planning attacks against the leadership of Castro's regime. The former prisoner states that he was never involved with any group planning the murder of any leader. In his book Cuba: Myth and Reality, sociologist Juan Clark states that the highest record of political prisoners in Cuba (at a given time) throughout its history amounted to 60 thousand during the 1960's. Amnesty International points out that in the mid-1970's, some 20 thousand prisoners had been freed. Clark concludes that "in a comparative base, these two amounts would be the equivalent, in a country the size of the United States, in the amount of 1,410,000 and 466,000 during that era".
Juan Clark adds that "this would make Cuba the country with the highest percentage (per capita) of political prisoners in the Western Hemisphere, even higher than the percentage for the Soviet Union", a nation which kept the highest number of dissidents jailed before the process of perestroika and glasnost, started by Michail Gorbachev during the second half of the 1980's.
(One may understand the Cuban Communist would “need” to be more vigorous than Russians in purging anti Soviet elements since Cubans- living next door to United States- Cubans had a much better look at western life than Russians and might be more restless than less well informed Russians under Soviet rule- hence the greater “need” for Cuban “re-education” centres- of the sort beloved of ALL Soviet comrades where dissidents of all sorts could have commie style “sense” beaten into them!)
Historically, the era with the highest number of political prisoners held in Cuba prior to Fidel Castro in power, had been under the dictatorship of General Gerardo Machado, between 1929 and 1933, when some 5 thousand opponents were jailed. During the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista, between 1952 and 1958, some 500 political prisoners were held. The testimonies of some of the protagonists can clearly make the comparison between the treatment received by the prisoners during the different periods. Here's one such important testimony:
"I'm going to dine: spaghetti with calamari, italian chocolates for dessert, freshly brewed Cuban coffee and later an H-Upman #4 (cigar). Don't you envy me?.... When I get some sun in the mornings, wearing shorts and feeling the sea breeze, I think that I'm at the beach. They are going to make me think I'm on vacation! What would Karl Marx say of such revolutionaries?"
The above quotation comes from a letter written by Fidel Castro when he was being held at the Presidio Modelo in Isla de Pinos, serving a 15 year sentence for leading the attack on the Moncada Barracks, in which some 100 people died. Castro and his companions served 20 months in jail, after which they received an amnesty from Batista's regime.
(Isn’t that nice- the dictator Batista that Castro later destroyed seems not to have shared the Castro fondness for bloody handed vengeance? And is it not amusing that western “useful idiots” as Lenin called craven western apologists of Soviet atrocities- always blamed United States for Cuban poverty in spite of the fact Cuba COULD have traded with all of South America- IF the Cuban Soviet economy actually produced anything useful to sell!)
