Today in History: Castro seizes power, Leftists naively celebrate (1959)

John RobsonArchive

On February 16th, back in 1959 a lot of people mistakenly celebrated Fidel Castro’s seizure of power in Cuba. 

They went right on celebrating as the ugly tyrant clung to power decade after decade, a classic example of the left’s tendency, as Jay Nordlinger once put it, to get a lasting crush on an unsuitable foreigner.

ART VANDELAY…I forgot about that door nob legislation in Vancouver…….but what can you expect when door nobs are making the legislation. Gotta love your mayor, Gregor the Green Slime. Yikes

As for who is junior’s father, whoever the lucky one was he obviously was shittyat parenting. I still go by the premiss that jt is a sinister blend. One part Mick Jagger, one part Keith Richards, one part Fidel with a hint of Pierre thrown in. If Junior ages poorly Charlie Watts may have to be added to the list. Beyond that it would be hard to tell, Maggie spent a fair bit of time trolling that hot pussy, and the fish seemed to bite quite well.

“L _ Tater Tot is an ideological relative to Castro, not a blood relative, although some days its hard to tell.”

One has to wonder though Bill. The photos circulating on the net eerily show that Junior is the spitting image of Fidel when Fidel was young. Then there is the fact that his mother behaved no better than an alley cat in heat, think of her infamous sans panties photo. Also Fidel was fondly referred to as “Uncle” by Junior’s family members. Then there was Junior’s tearful reaction to “Uncle” Fidel’s death. Coincidence? Perhaps. A DNA test would end the matter one way or the other. They could take samples from Fidel’s known children and compare it with Junior’s, if they match then guess who daddy really was, if they don’t match then it is just eerie coincidence.

Government has and always will be, fake jobs for life. Period. And naturally, everybody wants a slice. It’s why Winnie is a shoe in to get re-elected. Is anybody old enough to remember when they introduced the 6/49? I am and i’m only 43. Take the hint millennial sheeple. If you think everything in life is free, go work for Amway. Morons. We literally have rules in Vancouver for the type of DOOR HANDLE you put on your house. How much is the guy or gal who’s job it is to enforce this making and how good is their pension? Did you or your neighbor ask for this regulation? So who did? But we have to up your taxes to pay for them, don’t you know. Again, we are all morons.

“Interesting the seemingly coincidental that the Trudeaus and Castros are so close and obviously seem to think dynastic communist leadership is such a vital part of the single party state.

He also had a Son from one of his many “inFIDELities”. We call him Prime Minister Small Potatoes…

Dynastic leadership indeed. I just can’t get over how much Fidel looks like Justin.

People are stupid. I’m beginning to believe that applies to the majority of people who were born and raised in the free world. It’s only those who were born in poverty and under repressive regimes that truly see the world as it really is.

WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR EYES AND LOOK AROUND NOW YOU CAN SEE THELEFT” IT’S TIME WE NO LONGER CALL THEM LEFTIES OR THE LEFT OR SOCIALISTS WHEN THE TRUTH IS THEY ACT LIKE COMMUNIST AND IF THEY ACT LIKE COMMUNISTS THEY ARE IN FACT COMMUNISTS…..SO CALL THEM WHAT THEY ARE……..COMMUNISTS OR COMMIE BASTARDS.
BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE COMMIES

It certainly was a black day for that island state – but some degenerate regressive leftists still naively “celebrate” – like our own regressed PM showering this murdering bastard with praise even though his megalomania brought us to the brink of nuclear annihilation and half the island is a grave yard of political prisoners.

But it’s not surprising the left have trouble with math and history because so much of their time is spent ignoring figures and rewriting history to fit their oppressed/oppressor/freedom fighter romantic narratives – how unfortunate the dead victims of dynastic communism can’t tell them how wrong they are.

Interesting the seemingly coincidental that the Trudeaus and Castros are so close and obviously seem to think dynastic communist leadership is such a vital part of the single party state.
