Fidel Castro has finally met his long overdue death. Good riddance. If you think that sounds harsh, you’re probably not among those who were victimized by his barbaric ascent and brutal 50-year dictatorship.
Castro and his crew were (and still are) murderers – a gang of cold-blooded killers who promised liberation and delivered death, torture, and servitude. They line their pockets and live like kings while those beneath them toil away their lives for a pittance. Step out of line, and you vanish.
There is nothing to revere here.
Those who praise Castro’s lifelong ability to thumb his nose at the United States turn a blind eye to decades of hubris, violence, mass graves, and vicious cruelty.
Normally, when world leaders pass on – even those with whom I have vehement disagreement – I go the “don’t speak ill of the dead” route. Fidel Castro’s death is a different story.
It’s joyous news for a great many people, as evidenced by the celebrations erupting this morning in Miami.
