America’s subversives took a break from their daily rioting to eulogize their Uncle Fi:
Proving just how anti-American Black Lives Matter is, the radical black movement sent a love letter to dead Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. They praised his brutal rise to power, his totalitarian communist regime, and most of all for giving safe haven to revolutionary black terrorists including cop-killer Assata Shakur.
Black Lives Matter posted this sickening tribute to an American enemy on Medium yesterday:
“We are feeling many things as we awaken to a world without Fidel Castro. There is an overwhelming sense of loss, complicated by fear and anxiety. Although no leader is without their flaws, we must push back against the rhetoric of the right and come to the defense of El Comandante. And there are lessons that we must revisit and heed as we pick up the mantle in changing our world, as we aspire to build a world rooted in a vision of freedom and the peace that only comes with justice. It is the lessons that we take from Fidel.”
Fidel Castro shed blood on a scale unimaginable in American terms. His butchers executed perhaps 15,000 prisoners, according to academic estimates cited by Wikipedia … That was in a country of 7 million. In per capita terms, that’s the equivalent of about 680,000 executions in the United States of America with our population of 318 million. What’s 680,000? The entire population of Denver or Seattle. Imagine taking every man, woman, and child of a major American city and murdering them. That’s the scale of Fidel Castro’s crimes.
That is the true legacy of Fidel Castro: He was going to liberate the people of Cuba and then proceeded to put a military boot on their throats, telling them all to be grateful while he choked the life out of them. — Mike Lupica
His fastball has long since died. He still has a few curveballs which he throws at us routinely. – Nicholas Burns, United States State Department Spokesman
The first thing I noticed about Cuba is that there are billboards on every city block and every few miles in the countryside. And every single one of them is about the “Revolution” and its “achievements.” It is almost as if they are trying to sell it to the people, who don’t have a say in the matter … My personal favorite was a billboard on the highway announcing “La Salud Es La Revolución”(“Health Is The Revolution”), before getting off at a bus stop that, like about 95% of the other public facilities I encountered, had no soap or toilet paper … Another billboard saying “Los Cambios En Cuba Son Para Más Socialismo” (“The Changes In Cuba are for More Socialism”) was sitting on top of a nearly empty “super market” where Cubans go to queue for their allotment of rationed food.

Obama was accused of “snubbing” the funeral of Baroness Thatcher in 2013, sending two aging former Secretaries of State to lead a delegation that included no representatives from the incumbent administration. As British Prime Minister, Lady Thatcher was a close friend and ally of U.S. President Ronald Reagan, with the two working side-by-side to help end the rule of Communism in Eastern Europe. Fidel Castro was a long-time enemy of America, famously bringing the country close to nuclear war in the early 1960s after agreeing to host Soviet missiles in Cuba. He ruled the island with an iron fist for decades before finally ceding power ten years ago as his health failed.
Elsewhere, we learn of something else that was Bush’s Fault:
“Then he looked at me and said, ‘How was I supposed to know that cowboy George Bush would announce he wanted us ‘dead or alive’ and then invade Afghanistan to hunt us down?’” Mitchell writes. “KSM explained that if the United States had treated 9/11 like a law enforcement matter, he would have had time to launch a second wave of attacks.” He was not able to do so because al-Qaeda was stunned “by the ferocity and swiftness of George W. Bush’s response.” … Mohammed also predicted “jihadi-minded brothers would immigrate to the United States” and take advantage of the country’s rights and laws until they were ready to attack.
And then there’s the usual chorus of “Islam Is Not To Blame” whenever a Muslim slaughters a group of innocent bystanders:
As soon as I found out the attacker was a Muslim Somali immigrant, I knew white people & Trump were to blame.
Gee, and one thought the victims were the people stabbed…
The Ohio State University assistant director of residence life allegedly expressed sympathy for Somali stabber Abdul Razak Ali Artan in a bizarre Facebook post Monday that has since gone viral. Stephanie Clemons Thompson urged her followers to have compassion for Artan after he expressed a desire “to kill a billion infidels” and then tried to kill as many as he could at OSU. She also urged people to “think of the pain he must have been in,” and used the hashtags #BlackLivesMatter and #SayHisName (which BLM uses to denote victims of police brutality).
“He actually loved America,” Ameer Kadar, who last saw Artan two weeks ago, told NBC News. “He was a very sweet and humble person,” Khan said. “He can never do such an act, honestly.”
While immigrants draw much of the attention, it’s their children who are proving to be the most fruitful recruiting ground for radical jihad in the U.S., accounting for at least half of the deadly attacks over the past decade.
Jihadists — violent and stealth — will use any and every opportunity to gain ground. They are particularly “good” at soliciting and manipulating angry youth – from every class and race – who are misfits or underdogs looking for a sense of purpose and personal power. The victimology narrative is a prerequisite for joining the ranks of jihadists, and look which group is featured below promoting Black Lives Matter: the unindicted co-conspirator to terrorism financing, CAIR.
Folks, there’s more than one swamp that needs draining…
