Why the Left Cried When Fidel Died

FrontPageMag

The death of Fidel Castro has driven a stake into the heart of the Left, causing progressives worldwide to weep and moan at the loss of their secular deity. While North Korea and Raúl Castro have enforced days of mandatory mourning, leftists in the free world are beating their breasts and wailing with a voluntary and committed passion.


The examples are endless: Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gushed about how he learned of Castro’s death with “deep sorrow” and went on to pay tribute to a “legendary revolutionary.” Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) praised Castro and pleaded with everyone to “stop and pause and mourn.”

Other usual suspects did not disappoint. UK’s Labor opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn, the U.S. Green Party’s presidential candidate Jill Stein, Rev. Jesse Jackson and former President Jimmy Carter all stepped forward, expressing their deep sadness, extolling Castro’s “heroism,” struggle for “social justice” and other expected feats of revolutionary valor. The list goes on and on.

What exactly is going on here?

To understand why leftists, especially of the Western variety, are weeping upon Castro’s death, it is first crucial to grasp the underlying foundation of the progressives’ belief system. The leftist is a believer in a political faith, a faith that envisions a classless utopia of perfect equality and “social justice.” This faith is interlinked with the leftist’s revulsion of his own democratic-capitalist host society, which he sees as oppressive and unjust – and which he seeks to destroy. And it is upon the ashes of this intended destruction that the leftist hopes to build, with his other self-appointed social redeemers, the secular socialist paradise.

From this ideological foundation grow many pathologies, including the obvious philosophy of the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Indeed, by logic, anyone else who wants to destroy the leftist’s host society is seen as a helpful ally – and so it becomes completely obvious why, as David Horowitz has documented, the Left formed an Unholy Alliance with communism during the Cold War and why it continues that tradition with Islamic Supremacism in our terror war today.

The Unholy Alliance is, of course, also much deeper than just the ties that grow from having a common enemy. The leftist believer’s political faith comes with a veneration of the ideological enemy not only because he aids the destructive agenda, but because he is the symbolic receptor of the leftist’s most powerful political craving: to submit his whole being to a totalist entity. It is crucial to gauge here that, in believing in the socialist utopia, the leftist hates man for who and what he is. He loathes the reality of the individual and everything that comes with human nature. This is precisely why he held, and still desperately holds to, the notion of the New Soviet Man, believing that the human being is pliable like clay and can be remolded and reshaped.

The leftist, therefore, ultimately hates himself and lusts for his own self-extinction. And so he embarks on a totalitarian odyssey to shed himself of his own unwanted self and to relinquish and blur his individuality into a totalitarian collective and greater whole. My work, United in Hate, documents how this is precisely the tale of the fellow travelers – the political pilgrims who traveled (and continue to travel) to totalitarian communist and Islamic hells searching for their utopian paradises.

This phenomenon is also connected to the leftist’s own personal psychological and social handicaps and his resulting yearning to belong and fit in. Here we behold the process of negative identification, which the historian David Potter has succinctly crystallized, whereby a person who has failed to identify positively with his own environment subjugates his individuality to a powerful, authoritarian entity, through which he vicariously experiences a feeling of power and purpose. In other words, the leftist is desperately motivated by the will to power; he is searching for the power that will help him counteract the powerlessness that he feels in his own life.

For leftists, therefore, Castro represents the totalitarian display of power through which they can not only recapture a feeling of personal power, but can also vicariously express their own personal totalitarian urges.

And so, when Justin Trudeau and Barbara Lee are engulfed with deep sorrow on the occasion of a sadistic mass murderer’s death, we see that this is just a complete norm in the eerie and surreal world of the progressive believer. As members of the political faith, these leftists are simply enduring the agony of losing the killing machine that imbues them with an identity and a sense of belonging. They are suffering abandonment by the secular deity that provides them the self-gratification and the immense sense of moral superiority that they derive from seeing themselves as social redeemers who are building a perfect world. And most painfully of all, the death of Fidel represents to them the incineration, right in front of their eyes, of the symbol through which they envision their own imaginary power – and through which they can humiliate and torment the humans who remind them of their own unwanted selves.

FIDEL CASTRO DEAD – Marxist Dictator Dies at 90

Communist tyrant Fidel Castro with top lietenant Che Guevara

Even including much of the Miami media, watch how the mainstream media will positively characterize, and it has already begun, the life and death of Castro.  It will be true to their own leftist, socialist ideology, and this is the lesson; The American Left in this nation is absolutely infiltrated with Marxist and/or communist sympathizers. It is this ideology behind the likes of Obama, Clinton, Reid, Pelosi, Schumer, Sanders, BlackLivesMatter, the U.N., Globalism in general and the rest of the Left in this nation.  This is at its core, the real threat to the Republic.  -W.E.

I grew up in Miami where I lived for 38 years.  Many of my friends were Cuban. I watched thousands flee the island on rickety old boats and rafts and try to survive the 90 mile trip to South Florida, many died trying.  I also remember during the Carter administration when Castro opened up his prisons and mental institutions and 100,000 were allowed to flee in what was known as the Mariel boatlift that forever changed Miami.  But mostly I remember the stories of families that were literally torn apart, jailed and executed under the tyrant known as Fidel Castro.  Maybe this is why I felt sickened to hear Obama's comments today saying that for 6 decades our differences with Castro were merely "political".

Damage done, Fidel Castro was irrelevant long before he died

By the time his death at 90 was announced late Friday, Fidel Castro had become what he most feared during a prolonged and dramatic life — an irrelevancy, a living museum piece trotted out for ceremonial occasions, but no longer the man in charge of Cuba’s destiny. He was the living embodiment of the Cuban Revolution, to be seen and applauded in public functions, but real power had passed to his brother Raúl and others in the inner circle.

Well before Castro left the scene, the revolution he created was itself long since dead, an empty slogan few could believe in. Castro himself had become a pathetic, shuffling figure who outlived his own era while Cuba began to take the first steps toward a transition that its once fierce leader swore would never take place.

His great triumph was merely to have survived for so long, to have outlived so many adversaries. Nearly from the start, Castro made it his mission to challenge the might of the United States, a role he relished. He managed to confront and bedevil 11 American presidents — one-fourth of all American chief executives — while deftly avoiding the kind of strategic mistake that would provoke a military strike against him. 

All the while, he commanded public attention. He put Latin America on the map in a way that no one else ever had, becoming a major actor on the world stage during all or parts of seven eventful decades. From the moment he burst onto the scene with a dramatic if failed attack on the Moncada Barracks on July 26, 1953, to his last public appearance, he was a significant news figure. His pronouncements and actions were pored over by contemporaries on every continent. 

Unceasing defiance of the American Colossus made Castro a hero to millions, including many who did not otherwise share his left-wing politics. He was the most influential figure of the 20th century in Latin America, the lion whose roar gave voice to the resentment and grievances, real and imagined, that accumulated over decades as the United States rose to become the dominant force in the hemisphere. At the height of his power in the 1970s, his admirers in the Third World — disregarding his status as a Soviet pawn — chose him to lead the Non-Aligned Movement. 

But all of his prominence and power came at a terrible cost to the Cuban people, and therein lies his most lasting, tragic and unforgivable legacy. 

The history of Latin America is replete with the names of dictators who ruled by fear and violence, including some of Castro’s contemporaries, from Alfredo Stroessner in Paraguay to Rafael Trujillo in the Dominican Republic. But Fidel Castro outdid them all because his regime was the most oppressive — and most enduring. Petty tyrants like Peru’s Alberto Fujimori and Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez came and went. Castro endured.

The painful price that his suffocating tyranny exacted on the Cuban people is impossible to measure, but safe to say that there is hardly a single freedom recognized by civilized countries around the world that Fidel Castro did not violate.

In one of the great paradoxes of the era, Castro successfully posed as a champion of the downtrodden around the world, even as he trampled on the rights of downtrodden Cubans. His many admirers abroad chose to ignore, and illogically justify, his denial of freedom to the people of Cuba even as they fought for the right to enjoy civil liberties and freedoms at home. 

Revolutionary violence and human-rights abuses were there from the start. First came the summary executions of those who supported the Fulgencio Batista regime that Castro overthrew — and later of counter-revolutionaries, many of whom had fought against Batista at Castro’s side. Castro’s firing squads executed upwards of 18,000 Cubans. Others were sent to unendurably wretched prisons to serve 20-plus years.

This laid the groundwork for the regime’s machinery of repression. Its diabolical aim: to instill absolute obedience through fear. Gays, Jehovah’s Witnesses, outspoken Catholics and those deemed anti-social for disagreeing with Castro doctrine were sent to labor camps for “reeducation.’’ 
 
Later, mobs known as Rapid Response Brigades berated, hurled rocks at and assaulted Cubans leaving during the Mariel boatlift.They did the same to regime critics. State security agents infiltrated, divided and destroyed dissident organizations. They psychologically and physically tortured countless individuals who had been denounced as threats to the regime.
Castro spies came to America, too. Five Cuban spies were convicted in the murder of four Brothers to the Rescue, unarmed South Florida fliers, looking for Cubans at sea who were shot down on Raúl Castro’s orders by Cuban MiGs in 1996.

Fidel Castro destroyed civil society, replacing social cohesion with neighborhood committees that spied on Cuba’s citizens. Elections? Never in more than 60 years; only the Communist Party existed. Independent newspapers and free expression? None. Only state organs of propaganda.

Freedom to worship was restricted, and the institutional church was treated with suspicion and disrespect. Private property was abolished. Public and private school systems were replaced by indoctrination in schools designed to serve Communist ideology. 

And he also ruined an economy that had been the third-largest in Latin America when he took power by promoting disastrous agrarian and economic experiments. The damage became most painfully apparent after a disintegrating Soviet Union ended its massive subsidies to Cuba in 1991.

Withdrawal from a $4-billion-a-year habit wasn’t pretty. Cuba’s centralized economy went into a tailspin, and Castro the communist was forced to turn semi-capitalist — although he never yielded the controlling share. He sought joint ventures, primarily with European and Canadian investors. He rented out Cuban workers, whose wages in Cuban pesos amounted to some 5 percent of what the foreign investors paid for their labor; Castro kept the rest. He also legalized the use of the U.S. dollar, which created class divides between the “haves” who received remittances from abroad and the “have-nots” without access to the valued currency.

But none of this was enough to satisfy increasingly restive Cubans, so after an intestinal illness forced him to cede control to brother Rául in 2006, the government made necessary changes to the economy that Fidel would once have condemned — throwing the doors open to tourism, adjusting to the demands of needed foreign investors and allowing more Cubans to become self-employed and own small businesses.

While economic transition remained a work in progress, the police state created decades ago by Cuba’s Soviet masters and their allies for the regime’s benefit remained intact. It is Fidel Castro’s most enduring creation.

A recent report from Human Rights Watch could have been written decades ago: “Short-term arbitrary arrests of human rights defenders, independent journalists and other critics have increased dramatically. Other repressive tactics employed by the government include beatings, public acts of shaming, and the termination of employment.”

From the beginning, many Cubans chose to flee rather than to tolerate the lack of freedom as Castro effectively turned Cuba from a nation of grateful immigrants into a country of desperate emigrants. In Miami-Dade County alone, the population either born in Cuba or descended from Cuban immigrants in 2010 was 856,000, with some estimates of the worldwide diaspora at 3 million.

Now, after surviving countless assassination attempts, communism’s bankruptcy, economic collapse, his failed revolution, Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz has passed into history.
This is a moment to celebrate the prospect of a future without Fidel Castro. He should be remembered as the cynical dictator who nearly destroyed Cuba for the gratification of his own ego. Building a free, open and prosperous democracy would be the Cuban people’s greatest, most satisfying payback.

The totalitarian dictator is dead. May his police state and inhumanity be buried along with him.

Lazy Liberal Journalists Smear Bannon



Ben King




AIM

Media bias won’t let up just because the liberal media were humiliated on November 8. The bias is now being directed at the President-elect’s conservative appointments.

On Monday night’s CBS Evening News, anchor Scott Pelley proclaimed that the Southern Poverty Law Center had declared that Donald J. Trump’s campaign CEO Stephen Bannon “has no business being in the White House.” Bannon was named as chief strategist and counselor.

In fact, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has no business being cited as a credible source by any responsible news organization. It smears conservatives for profit, diverting attention from real domestic threats, such as the Marxist extremists currently demonstrating against Trump in the streets and threatening to disrupt his inauguration.

Many of the demonstrators are from the ANSWER Coalition, an outgrowth of the pro-North Korea Marxist-Leninist Workers World Party.

But don’t expect to get any information about the ANSWER Coalition from the SPLC.
In fact, the SPLC is in bed with communists of all kinds, having participated in the notorious Left Forum held in New York City earlier this year. We noted at the time that the event featured “an assortment of communists, 9/11 truthers, pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel activists, and other extremists.”

Even more troubling, SPLC President and CEO Richard Cohen was a member of the “Countering Violent Extremism Working Group” of the Department of Homeland Security in 2010. It is possible that Cohen, in this capacity, was able to get access to classified information, and that the SPLC, in turn, shared its erroneous data on conservative opponents of the Obama administration with federal law enforcement agencies.

The attacks on Bannon stem from his leadership of the news site, Breitbart News, a popular source of alternative news and information which was strongly pro-Trump during the campaign. On occasion, the site features some unorthodox conservative views that Bannon’s critics have tried to pin on him.

The site was named for Andrew Breitbart, who pioneered new and effective ways to undermine the left. One of his disciples, Jeremy Segal, did a video exposing Democratic Rep. Danny K. Davis (IL) being honored at the Communist Party U.S.A.’s headquarters in Chicago for a lifetime of “inspiring leadership.”

Lazy liberal journalists would rather cite the SPLC as authoritative without having to bother to investigate how the group has been exposed by such investigative reporters on the left as Ken Silverstein. At one time, notes Silverstein, the group did some good work against racist hate groups. But later, in order to expand its business model and make more money, it expanded the “hate” label to mainstream conservative organizations. It has accumulated $300 million in a reserve fund and has become “one of the most profitable charities in the country,” with its top officials getting membership in the so-called financial elite one percent.

This journalist was named a member of the “radical right,” a designation then transformed into a charge of “Islamophobia” by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). The accusations are designed to silence First Amendment rights and discourage the media from going to conservative sources for news, information and commentary.

Before Pelley uncritically cited the SPLC, Kate Snow was on MSNBC talking about how Trump’s stand against illegal immigration was similar to that of the secretary of state of Kansas, Kris Kobach. She said Kobach had given “support” to the Social Contract Press, which she described as a “hate group” designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The Social Contract Press rebuts all of the accusations, while noting that the SPLC’s $300 million cash hoard “rivals that of [the] Clinton Foundation.” It was the Social Contract Press which published one of Silverstein’s articles exposing the SPLC.

Indeed, Silverstein’s exposé was just one section of a major report the Social Contract Press published in 2010 that examined the SPLC’s strategy and tactics.

Yet, it’s Bannon who is being accused of being an extremist. The Washington Post admits there’s no real evidence behind the allegation, making it just another smear picked up by most of the media without adequate checking or verification.

What we are witnessing in the faux outrage against Bannon is a fear that the Trump administration and the new Republican Congress will get back to the business of monitoring real domestic threats.

For example, Trump adviser Walid Phares has already indicated that the President-elect will back a bill, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act, which could lead to an investigation of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Trevor Loudon, the producer of the new film, “Enemies Within,” says the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act could be supplemented by the House and Senate bringing back committees or subcommittees devoted to exposing internal security problems, also known as un-American activities.

A member of Congress exposed in the film for his ties to the Muslim Brotherhood is Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), who is running for chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

Six Communists Arrested During anti-Trump Protests at Texas Capitol on Sunday

Facebook Page of the "Red Guards Austin"

The media purposely does not tell us about who is financing and what groups are protesting the Trump election.  
It's very important we understand that communism is not only alive and active in the U.S. today, but it has infiltrated the mainstream media, the Democratic Party and is in large part responsible for much of the violence on the streets from Occupy Wall Street, Ferguson protests, Black Lives Matter to the early Trump campaign protestors to those rioting today. -W.E. 

From Trevor Loudon's website: 

The communist group shared an event for students from the Revolutionary Student Front”  (which describes itself as a “revolutionary anti-capitalist student movement” ) scheduled for this Friday night called “‘Not My President’ to ‘No More Presidents!'” which seeks to build “a movement that can create a revolution to end capitalism will burn the oppressive roots from which fascism grows:”

“With Donald Trump as president-elect, a lot of us are wondering how we got here and what we can do about it. The Democratic Party won’t save us; even ‘progressives’ like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have said they’ll work together with President Trump.

Peaceful protest won’t save us; as Stokely Carmichael said, “Nonviolence only works if your opponent has a conscience. The United States has none.”

The only thing that has stopped fascism historically is an organized anti-fascist fighting force; Hitler was only stopped by the Red Army. The rising wave of fascist movements emboldened by Trump’s presidency can only be countered by an even more bold mass movement of anti-capitalist resistance. Now more than ever, the steps necessary for building this type of mass revolutionary movement need to be made. And only a movement that can create a revolution to end capitalism will burn the oppressive roots from which fascism grows.

Join the Revolutionary Student Front at Jester A203A (tentative) on 6:30 on Thursday, to talk about the concrete steps necessary in building power on campus as working-class students to create a better world and defend each other from the threat of fascism.”

Protests against President-elect Donald Trump continued both nationwide and locally Sunday night.

About 150-200 people gathered at the Capitol to stage a “peaceful protest” and state that they would not be antagonizing the police. Trump supporters were among those in the crowd.  

Protesters marched down Congress Avenue and turned toward City Hall, ending up on the South 1st Street bridge.

The march turned back toward the Capitol around 8:30 p.m.

The Texas Department of Public Safety says it arrested 6 members of a local communist group, Red Guards Austin, for assaulting pro-Trump members in Sunday's protest. 

DPS troopers arrested Jarred Roark, 34, after he allegedly assaulted an individual on South Congress and 11th Street adjacent to the State Capitol. 

The Texas Department of Public Safety has identified the 6 people arrested during an anti-Trump rally at the Capitol on Sunday night. Top row: Jarred Roark, 34 (Left); Taylor Tomas Chase, 21 (Center); Joseph Wayne George, 36 (Right); Bottom row: Samuel Benjamin Lauber, 21 (Left); Jason Peterson, 24 (Center); Jade Tabitha Shackelford, 19 (Right). (Photo: DPS)
Roark was arrested on felony aggravated assault, resisting arrest and evading arrest.
Troopers also arrested five other suspects related to the initial incident:
  • Taylor Tomas Chase, 21, interference with public duty and resisting arrest
  • Joseph Wayne George, 36, interference with public duty
  • Samuel Benjamin Lauber, 21, interference with public duty and resisting arrest
  • Jason Peterson, 24, interference with public duty and resisting arrest
  • Jade Tabitha Shackelford, 19, felony assault on public servant
In an earlier interview with Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo, he asked people to protest peacefully and within the confines of the law.

"If you really want to stand for your position and views, take those masks off," said Chief Acevedo. "Stop covering your face. Because historically, the only people who cover their face are people who are agitators and people that at some point are really anarchists."
Tom Vinger, Press Secretary for the Texas Department of Public Safety, released the following statement Monday:

While we do not typically discuss security issues, we can say that DPS is continually monitoring events involving potential public safety impacts across the state and nation. We also adjust our level of vigilance to meet any potential or emerging threats, and will adjust our security measures as threats warrant.

Has George Soros Committed Treason?

USDefenseWatch

Paul Craig Roberts

“His only legitimacy is his wallet.”

The press prostitutes continue to lie to us. They pretend that the anti-Trump protests are real spontaneous events although the prostitutes know that the “protests” are orchestrated by George Soros and front groups for the Oligarchy such as change.org and other fake progressive groups funded by the oligarchs.

WHOA! Criminal President Obama Encourages Illegal Aliens to Vote – Promises No Repercussions (VIDEO)


Just when you think he couldn't shock you anymore....  

Barry Soetoro, the illegal President that just keeps his crime spree against America rolling, year after year, day after day....

How desperate are the Democrats to remain in power?  Desperate enough apparently to publicly throw off any pretense of the rule of law, of fair elections with extreme abuse of power and just pure unspeakable criminality for all to see- and later deny.  
That is if anyone in the mainstream media ever mentions this. 

If this isn't defrauding the electorate and undermining free elections, I don't know what is.  

The plan all along has been to get the illegals to vote....and now here is Soetoro in his own words.

WARNING IOWA! List of Socialists Running as Democrats

NewZeal

IOWA, do not vote until you read this!
As revealed in Trevor Loudon’s film the Enemies Within, the democrat party has been compromised by subversive socialist groups, including labor unions, that seek to fundamentally transform America. While socialist Bernie Sanders did not win the democratic nomination for president, his surrogates are hard at work scheming to force as many socialists into office as possible.
