This Sunday in America…at the Church of The Compassionate Conservative, Beloved Whistleblower Publisher, the Right-Wing Reverend Charles Foster Kane was asking his Political Parishioners to Pray for Peacemakers and totally ignore the Tsunami of Liberal Gushing in the media over the death of a Communist Dictator like Fidel Casto, unless Trump’s victory gave that murdering bastard a long overdue heart attack. Just look at all those celebrations in Miami.
President-elect Donald Trump condemned the late Cuban leader Fidel Castro on an otherwise quiet Saturday for the president-elect. “The world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades,” Trump said in a statement issued hours after Castro’s death. “Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.”
Trump, who has pledged to roll back the Obama administration’s diplomatic opening to Cuba, said the nation remains “a totalitarian island,” but he hopes that Castro’s passing will mark “a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve.”
Noting support of anti-Castro Cuban Americans during the recent presidential election, Trump pledged to fight for a “free Cuba” during his administration. “Though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Fidel Castro cannot be erased, our administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty,” Trump said in his statement. Earlier in the morning, Trump marked the news with brief tweet: “Fidel Castro is dead!”
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says “under no circumstance” should President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, or Secretary of State John F. Kerry attend Fidel Castro’s funeral and admonished anyone who was honoring the death of former Cuban president.
Though he didn’t indicate whether he’d be traveling to the Caribbean nation for Castro’s funeral, Kerry did release a statement yesterday. “We extend our condolences to the Cuban people today as they mourn the passing of Fidel Castro,” Kerry wrote. “Over more than half a century, he played an outsized role in their lives, and he influenced the direction of regional, even global affairs.”
In an earlier tweet, Gingrich labeled Castro a “relentless dictator who imprisoned thousands (and) killed and tortured many Cubans” and went on to say, “the outpouring of praise for Fidel Castro is tragic … Build a list of those praising Castro and you will have a list of leftists who reject reality for an ideological fantasy.”
Gingrich wasn’t the only GOP member who blasted those who had kind words for the late dictator. Florida U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio called Obama’s statement “pathetic.”
At least The Blower’s prediction came true: Castro actually did die on a Cuban-American Holiday. That’s because any day Fidel Castro died would be a holiday.
