Communist dictator Fidel Castro, who took hold of Cuba with a bloody revolution and ruled with an iron fist for five decades, died on Friday.
The ruthless leader, who impoverished his country and caused countless migrants to flee the island, died at 90 years old, his brother Raul, the country’s president, said on Cuban state television.
“Towards victory, always!” Raul said with a shaking voice after stating that his older brother died at 10:29 p.m. Friday.
Fidel’s body was scheduled to be cremated on Saturday, according to Agence France Presse.
The death comes just months after President Obama normalized diplomatic relations between the Cold War enemies.
As part of his brutal hold on power the Cuban leader executed thousands of innocent people. He once admitted to holding 15,000 political prisoners in the 60s, and forced gays into “re-education” camps.
At least 582 were shot by firing squads over two years. Independent newspapers were forced to close.
Still, the cold-blooded dictator was romanticized by leftists around the world, who hailed him as a hero.
I never thought the old fart would ever die.
VIVA CUBA LIBRE !!!!!!!!!!!!!
What's the difference between The Castro bros + Che and their idols Stalin, Mao and khrushchev?
Answer: The Castros, along w/ Che, had the pleasure of "only" murdering 10s of 1,000s. While the communist trailblazers had the pleasure of murdering 10s of MILLIONS of their own people.
Those are the viciously deadly animals that the likes of Barack Insane Obama, Bill Ayers and Colin Kaepernick deeply respect and admire.
Lets not forget that BOzo's buddy, bloodthirsty terrorist Bill Ayers, said that, in a communist America, at least 25 MILLION Americans would have to be killed to be able to control the rest of the population:
Communists are LIARS and bloodthirsty murderers. Period. And these are who the American left idolizes?
