It is difficult for normal, good people with a moral center to internalize this, but as the left says in their books such as “Rules for Radicals” or their other countless writings from Marx, Lenin, Gramsci and the Frankfurt School, to them the truth is anything that advances their own political power, period.
Lying is simply a non issue for the left as we have learned with the Democrats, WikiLeaks and now their reaction to Fidel Castro’s death which is quite frankly a denial of reality as if they are from another planet.
We saw Canadian PM Justin Trudeau praise Castro as if he is some beloved leader and humanitarian rather than the terribly corrupt dictator who lined up tens of thousands of civilians and political opponents in front of a firing squad.
Trudeau is not alone in this Orwellian rewrite of history.
Rosalyn and I share our sympathies with the Castro family and the Cuban people on the death of Fidel Castro. We remember fondly our visits with him in Cuba and his love of his country.
President Obama issued a statement that is so milk-toast that it essentially said nothing.
The usual cadre of dishonest far left “journalists” who willingly serve as mouthpieces for the DNC issued similar fawning rewrites of history for this brutal murderer. Newsbusters is amassing a collection of it HERE.
In the mean time actual Cubans are cheering as if it was the death of Emperor Palpatine:
Cuban American members of the Senate had something to say.
Senator Ted Cruz said on his FaceBook page:
A dictator is dead. But his dark, repressive legacy will not automatically follow him to the grave. Change can come to Cuba, but only if America learns from history and prevents Fidel’s successor from playing the same old tricks.
Senator Cruz also penned “The Truth About Fidel and Raul” – HERE. Be sure you read it.
Lastly, here is Donald Trump’s statement on Fidel Castro’s death:
Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.
While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks 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.
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. I join the many Cuban Americans who supported me so greatly in the presidential campaign, including the Brigade 2506 Veterans Association that endorsed me, with the hope of one day soon seeing a free Cuba.
