I have seen far too many people “mourning” the death of Castro over the last few days. I’m sure that some mourned the death of Hitler too. But good Lord, people, wake up and look at the horrors of Castro’s Cuba.
Soledad O’Brien took a shellacking for defending the notion that Fidel Castro’s brutal regime in Cuba was “complicated” on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Monday.
Cuban-American author Humberto Fontova took her to task, saying there’s nothing complicated about the evil he perpetrated on the country.
“Castro regime jailed and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin’s regime during the great terror. They drove 20 times as many people to die trying to escape from Cuba as died trying to escape East Germany, and we’re hearing about complicated emotions? Give me a break.”
