THE FAR-LEFT Marxist Black Lives Matter mob mourned the death of former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro – who killed millions of his own citizens and held many in jail for expressing freedom speech and freedom of expression.
The Black Lives Matter global network took to Medium to profess Love for the brutal dictator who ruthlessley suppressed his own people and thier freedom of expression – just like the BLM mob do when right-wingers attack the left or Black Lives Matter with accusations of racism.
Despite achievements in Cuban social policy, Castro’s notorious 49-year socialist reign came at a massive cost to human rights in the South American nation.
Amnesty International revealed that thousands of Cubans were held as ‘prisoners of conscience’, and detained by Castro’s far-left government, simply for exercising their right to freedom of expression, association and assembly.
“The state of freedom of expression in Cuba, where activists continue to face arrest and harassment for speaking out against the government, is Fidel Castro’s darkest legacy” said one Cuban expert.
Fidel Castro also organised trials of members of the previous government in 1959 that resulted in hundreds of executions.
In response to international outcry, and amid accusations that many of the trials were unfair, Castro responded:“Revolutionary justice is not based on legal precepts, but on moral conviction… we are not executing innocent people or political opponents. We are executing murderers and they deserve it.”
The 2016 post by Black Lives Matter professing ‘love’ for the evil Dictator Fidel said: “We are feeling many things as we awaken to a world without Fidel Castro.”
“There is an overwhelming sense of loss, complicated by fear and anxiety. Although no leader is without their flaws, we must push back against the rhetoric of the right and come to the defense of El Comandante.”
“And there are lessons that we must revisit and heed as we pick up the mantle in changing our world, as we aspire to build a world rooted in a vision of freedom and the peace that only comes with justice. It is the lessons that we take from Fidel.”
“From Fidel, we know that revolution is sparked by an idea, by radical imaginings, which sometimes take root first among just a few dozen people coming together in the mountains. It can be a tattered group of meager resources, like in Sierra Maestro in 1956 or St. Elmo Village in 2013.”
“Revolution is continuous and is won first in the hearts and minds of the people and is continually shaped and reshaped by the collective. No single revolutionary ever wins or even begins the revolution. The revolution begins only when the whole is fully bought in and committed to it. And it is never over.”
“Revolution transcends borders; the freedom of oppressed people and people of color is all bound up together wherever we are. In Cuba, South Africa, Palestine, Angola, Tanzania, Mozambique, Grenada, Venezuela, Haiti, African America, and North Dakota. We must not only root for each other but invest in each other’s struggles, lending our voices, bodies, and resources to liberation efforts which may seem distant from the immediacy of our daily existence.”
The post closed off: “A final lesson is that to be a revolutionary, you must strive to live in integrity. As a Black network committed to transformation, we are particularly grateful to Fidel for holding Mama Assata Shakur, who continues to inspire us.”
“We are thankful that he provided a home for Brother Michael Finney Ralph Goodwin, and Charles Hill, asylum to Brother Huey P. Newton, and sanctuary for so many other Black revolutionaries who were being persecuted by the American government during the Black Power era.”
