As a general rule there is never a bad time for a murderous dictator to meet his end, however the timing of Fidel Castro’s death, at a moment when most American leftists in media and academia are berating and bemoaning the election of Donald Trump is most fortuitous.
Castro’s death while all this insanity is going on provides a teachable moment for those who are returning to a classroom after thanksgiving.
So to all of those being told of the greatness of Fidel Castro by those who celebrated his rise to power and insisted that Cuba was a better place under him, while at the same time bemoaning the future of the United States under president elected Donald Trump by the professional leftists teaching them I pose the following question.
For decades the left has insisted that Fidel Castro was a hero who made his island a better place while insisting that claims of oppression were either false or overblown.
Yet despite this thousands of Cubans fled their Island, risking jail if caught and drowning if not in order to escape this supposed “paradise”. Even Cuban athletes representing the country had to be carefully watched when competing internationally because even the threats against their families on the island was not enough to guarantee that they would not defect to the west.
That is Cuba under the Castros.
Meanwhile before the election of Donald Trump celebrities from Al Sharpton to Lena Dunham, from Cher to Whoopi Goldberg and Amy Schumer vowed to leave the country if he was elected to escape the evils of what would be his despotic rule.
Not only did the various celebs all have sufficient wealth to allow them to leave the country without incident (unlike most of those who fled Castro) but under the laws of the United States they faced no fear of reprisal if they choose to go, no being stopped at the border, no imprisonment of families, not even a risky boat ride, the most dangerous part of leaving would be the risk of having to fly coach.
Yet when the time came, every single one of them decided to stay.
So my question to those attending a college where they are singing the praises of Fidel Castro while creating safe spaces and organizing marches to oppose Donald Trump is this?
If What you’ve been told about Trump vs Castro is true, why aren’t the Cubans staying and the celebrities fleeing? Wouldn’t that be the logical result?
Take all the time you need.
