LIONEL PODCAST: The Romanticization of a Tyrant Castro As Romantic Revolutionary Fatigue-Clad Barbate


The mythology of Castro as the romantic revolutionary barbate. Random thoughts infra.

    • It is impossible to love freedom and human potential and not loathe Castro.
    • Who are the lunatics who heap praise on the despot who ruled over an island prison nation? You know who they are.
    • Amazing, isn’t it? Castro’s greatest fans and admirers never lived under his regime.
    • Castro was an amazing man. So long as he didn’t kill or imprison you.
    • Ask anyone sporting a Che shirt to explain anything about him. Good luck. 
    • Ask about Luis Posada Carriles when speaking of Castro’s Cuba and state terrorism. I dare you. 
    • It is beyond the intellectual and historic ken for American media to comment cogently on Castro’s death. 
    • There’s must be a lobotomy that’s performed on the reasoning centers of today’s political comedians, especially those who portray the professional leftist. 
    • There can be no heartsease with Castro’s passing. 
    • There are so many dolts who rail against Trump as fascist and laud Fidel Castro as benevolent revolutionary. Only in America can we walk among the cretinous. Especially the two-bit leftie comic grasping and clawing at relevance.
    • The American Mafia and LCN provided some of the best countermeasures against Castro since he wrested control of their gambling interests post-Batista.
    • Since Executive Order 11905 our prohibitions against assassinating world leaders have been at best sketchy. Fidel knew.
    • American media and Americans themselves would be best served by sitting this Castro discussion out. Too complicated. Nothing Manichaean.
    • Fox News systematically diminishes the complexity of the Castro positioning in history by flag waving mesmerization. Please, let the adults speak.
    • There are so many dolts who rail against Trump as fascist and laud Fidel Castro as benevolent revolutionary. Only in America can we walk among the cretinous. Especially the two-bit leftie comic grasping and clawing at relevance.
    • Why is anyone spending a picosecond reviewing the relevance and sagacity of Colin Kaepernick?
    • The Che shirt wearing weekend revolutionary is as conversant with history as the neo-Nazi Aryan poltroon who fancies himself an Hitlerian avatar. Or the confederate flag sporting Johnny Reb who thinks Lynyrd Skynyrd is the revivification of Stonewall Jackson.
    • Please speak to Cuban-Americans who lost everything, had property and tresaure confiscated, loved ones imprisoned and who witnessed fellow citizens cut down via firing squads. Tell them about your revolutionary hero. Perspective children.
    • But while your at it, recognize the corruption of Fulgencio Batista and other hardliners who in their own way imposed horrors among the poor and defenseless. This is not an easy discussion. 
    • Castro was brilliant. Never forget that. And much of what he said was spot-on. Despots can be right also. 
    • This country imprisons and executes the innocent, enjoys a horrid infant mortality rate, ignores its poor and exports war through criminal imperialism. Glass houses, kids.
