Embracing Evil: How the Progressive Left Proved its (Im)Moral Hypocrisy

Castro “reneged on his promise of free elections, executed thousands imprisoned tens of thousands…and made his isle a pawn in the Cold War.”

Castro “rigidly controlled the arts, the press, the airwaves. [His] efficient secret police force was aided by neighborhood spies & mobs…”

Even his daughter said Fidel was “a tyrant–an absolute ruler unrestrained by law.”

Senator Ben Sasse quoting the Miami Herald

I am a first-generation American. I am the son and grandson of immigrants who arrived on America’s golden shores with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Literally.

The liberal outpouring of grief for Fidel Castro is both disgusting and disrespectful to me and to the millions of other Cuban-Americans whose lives were uprooted by the communist strongman today’s liberals seem infatuated with. The man was a Monster in the same vein as Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong, Benito Mussolini, the Khmer Rouge, Idi Amin, and every other dictator whom liberals have pretended to detest. The people of Ireland and Canada, in particular, should be embarrassed at the displays of condolences delivered by their elected leaders. Fidel was not a “controversial” figure — he was a mass murdering oppressor who only cared about himself.

Perhaps you don’t believe me because you’ve been hearing such great things about Castro in the news lately. Click the link and meet all of the documented and verified victims, see the actual record of deaths, disappearances, and torture carried out by Castro. Be warned – it’s gut-wrenching.

Cuba Archive

Both my father and my mother arrived in Miami in the late 1960s on “Freedom Flights” from Cuba. After Castro’s overthrow of the Batista regime, the beautiful island nation that was once known as the “Pearl of the Antilles” became an island prison. By the mid-60’s you could not leave the nation, nor travel within the country freely. Castro even invented an ingenious method to line his pockets with money from America: “Freedom Flights.” Essentially, the Cuban people had become Castro’s personal hostages, and if they wanted to be free of him, the hostage had to find a sponsor in America willing and able to pay for their freedom from Cuba.

This was how both sides of my family tree escaped Communism; their freedom was purchased for them by hard working loved ones already living in America. Castro didn’t just stoop to demanding a ransom, he also wouldn’t allow anyone leaving Cuba to take their possessions with them. When they applied to leave the island nation, the government branded them as traitors and the local “block leaders” (essentially government gang lieutenants) led the neighborhood in shunning them for their indiscretion. When the day finally came for their journey to freedom, the government would not allow the fleeing refugees to take their family heirlooms or their prized possessions. No, only the clothes they needed to travel would make the journey with them; the home and all of its belongings would be divided up among those loyal to the revolution.

Mariano Gonzalez arrived on a Freedom Flight from Havana with his wife and three young daughters in January of 1967. Mariano had been a white-collar employee of an accounting firm in Cespedes, Camaguey, Cuba. Within days of applying for his family’s exit to the United States, my grandfather Mariano lost his job at the accounting firm. He went from wearing a shirt and tie as a bookkeeper, to holding a machete and working long hours in the sugarcane fields where the government had sent him to work. If he was going to leave Cuba, then they would make him pay the price of his rebellion. He toiled under the hot Cuban sun for months waiting for the paperwork (and the money) from his brother-in-law in America to make its way through the red tape and government bureaucracy, and when it finally did, he and his family (including my mother) fled for the safety of Miami’s Freedom Tower.

Embracing Evil: How the Progressive Left Proved its (Im)Moral Hypocrisy

why leave out the progressive right? they're every bit as hypocritical and implementing as much destruction to this country as their brothers and sisters on the left.

How so?  

Just take a hindsight look at how the RINO's in Congress rubber stamped bringing in aliens when they could have stopped it. Just look at how they rubber stamped a deficit that who knows how we will ever pay that down?  OUR side, the Repubs did THAT. All on their own.

Instead of standing for the safety of our country. Instead of standing for economic prosperity, they put us in the debt toilet for decades.

The Republicans gave us millions of aliens over 0's reign of terror.

The Republicans gave us debt, more than all Presidents/Congresses before.

The result is a 51 year low in home ownership.

The result is manufacturing is 13% of total manufacturing, down from almost 40% of jobs in manufacturing.

The result is more poverty stricken families than ever.

The result is low labor force participation rate.

The result is a lousy 1-2% GDP.

THEY DID THIS.

All they had to do was DEFUND ALL of his plans.

Because Republicans sat by and let obama commit treason,etc. Ive called Jeb Hensarling so many times and he never would answer questions and his staff would literallt say "we'll take your comments". WTF is that. Ignore the people. But he campaigned constantly qhen in Texas. Always fundraising. His main director in dallas, mike, said we are lucky we have town halls at all. Other congressman dont. Thats why the republican right so called tea party/ conservative senators (Ted Cruz), congressman are actually worse than democrats. They say f*** the people.

  I would suppose that if FIDEL CASTRO was ever to DEFECT to the USA, first thing he would do would be to "REGISTER DEMOCRAT" !!!!!!!

 There is very little, of any, difference between HIS CURRENT Government in CUBA and that of the DEMOCRAT PARTY. 

To embrace such immorality has deadly consequences

Time for America to give arms for a worthy cause, the Cuban Revolution and make Cuba a state. Why spend another 60 years with this garbage 90 miles from Freedom and Liberty. Do we want to risk another Cuban missile crisis, Russia and China would not hesitate placing missiles on the island? China is already exploring off shore oil reserves near Cuba. A total win situation for the Cuban people and the security of America.

God Bless America and the State of Israel

Live Free or Die

... make Cuba a state ...

WE have enough 'Spanish Speaking' states now . . .

Amen. Time to make Cuba a large parking lot.

The progressive left should be eliminated in this country by law. The progressive left is by definition un-American and has therefore no place in our country. Let's hope that Republicans will use their combined power in the White House, in the House and in the Senate to demolish the progressive left completely.

why leave out the progressive right? they're every bit as hypocritical and implementing as much destruction to this country as their brothers and sisters on the left.

You are right but it goes without saying that progressive anything needs to be eliminated in the US. We need to maintain our democracy.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
