BLM Eulogized Fidel Castro and Feels ‘Indebted to Him’ for ‘His Guidance’ and ‘Integrity’

“We are feeling many things as we awaken to a world without Fidel Castro,” reads an official Black Lives Matter eulogy for Fidel Castro upon his death. “There is an overwhelming sense of loss…we are particularly grateful to Fidel for holding Mama Assata Shakur, who continues to inspire us…As Fidel ascends to the realm of the ancestors, we summon his guidance, strength, and power as we recommit ourselves to the struggle for universal freedom. Fidel Vive!”
“War with the U.S. is my true destiny!” Fidel Castro wrote to a fellow KGB-handled Cuban comrade in April 1958. This was at a time when our crackerjack CIA and State Department were head over heels in love with Castro and his Soviet-backed July 26 Movement, and were helping him both materially and morally.
“You Americans just don’t understand it. The depths of my brother Fidel’s hatred for your country cannot be imagined by you Americans. His intention—his OBSESSION!—is to destroy the U.S.!” (Juanita Castro testifying before the House Committee on Un-American activities on June 1965, shortly after defecting from Cuba.)
What?!” Khrushchev gasped on Oct. 28th 1962, as recalled by his son Sergei. “Is he (Fidel Castro) proposing that we start a nuclear war?! That we launch missiles from Cuba?!”
“Yesterday the Cubans shot down a plane (U-2 with) without (Soviet) permission. Today they’re preparing a nuclear attack!….But that is INSANE!..Remove them (our missiles) as soon as possible! Before it’s too late. Before something terrible happens!” commanded the Soviet premier. (So much for the Fake News Media/Democrat/History Channel fable of how JFK “stood up to the Russians!” during the Cuban Missile Crisis. In fact, as documented by Khrushchev’s own son, what got the missiles out of Cuba was the Butcher of Budapest’s alarm that Fidel or Che might get their fingers too close to the buttons.)
“Of course I knew the missiles were nuclear-armed,” responded Fidel Castro to Robert McNamara during a meeting in 1992. “That’s precisely why I urged Khrushchev to launch them. And of course Cuba would have been utterly destroyed in the exchange.”
And speaking of “taking a knee,” Fidel Castro was forcing white Americans to take a knee for him well before the Johny-come-lately BLM found it “cool.” In fact it seemed a historic fetish of his. It wasn’t often that BLM’s murderous idol managed to get his hands on an American. But when he did, he really indulged this fetish:
“Kneel and beg for your life!” Castro’s executioners taunted the bound and helpless William Morgan, as he glowered at Castro’s firing squad in April 1961. Morgan was an AWOL GI with creditors and ex-wives on his tail in the U.S., who fled to Cuba and wound up a comandante in Castro’s Rebel army in 1959. He soured on the revolution when the unmistakably Soviet pattern (actually there from the beginning) became unmistakable even to morons. Castro heard about Morgan’s change of heart through his ever-efficient and ever-present spies/snitches and promptly arrested him. Within weeks, Morgan was in front of a firing squad.
“I kneel for no man!” Morgan snarled back.
“Very well, Meester Weel-yam Morgan,” replied his executioner, while the firing squad aimed low, on purpose – “FUEGO!”
The first volley shattered Morgan’s knees. He collapsed snarling and writhing. “See, Meester Morgan?” giggled a voice from above. “We made you kneel, didn’t we?” Over the next few minutes, as he lie writhing, four more bullets slammed into Morgan, all very carefully aimed to miss vitals. Finally, an executioner walked up and blasted Morgan’s skull to pieces with a .45.
“Death to the American!” screamed a Castroite “prosecutor” at U.S. citizen Howard Anderson’s s farce of a trial on April 17, 1961. “The prosecutor was a madman!” says a Swiss diplomat who witnessed the trial, “leaping on tables, shrieking, pointing, and Mr Anderson simply glared back.”
You’d never guess this from the Cuba “reporting” by the Fake News Media/Democrat complex but the reason for the Cuba “embargo” in the first place was Castro’s mass theft, at Soviet gunpoint, of almost 6,000 businesses in Cuba worth $9 billion (in current dollars) from U.S. citizens. A few American business owners who resisted were tortured and murdered.
One of these American burglary victims was Howard Anderson, a successful businessman who owned a chain of service stations and a Jeep dealership (not a casino or brothel, which were relatively rare in pre-Castro Cuba, by the way.) Mr. Anderson was a happy family man with four children and president of the American Legion’s Havana Chapter. I’ll quote from Anderson v. Republic of Cuba, No. 01-28628(Miami-Dade Circuit Court, April 13, 2003).
“In one final session of torture, Castro’s agents drained Howard Anderson’s body of blood before sending him to his death at the firing squad.”
Two days after his “trial,” Howard Anderson refused a blindfold, to glare at his executioners. Medically he was probably in shock at the time from the blood-draining. “Fuego!” The bullets shattered Howard Anderson’s body at dawn on April 19, 1961.
“Kneel!–KNEEL DOWN!” the Cuban torturer screamed at the bound and bloodied but unbowed U.S. POW in front of him, Lieutenant Colonel Earl Cobeil, an Air Force F-105 pilot shot down over North Vietnam. “You son of a beech! I will show you!” continued screeching the Castroite torturer.
You see, amigos: In 1967 BLM’s idol–unable to get his hands on any defenseless Americans to torture and murder at home– sent several of his top torturers to North Vietnam, where defenseless Americans were abundantly available. Testimony during Congressional hearings titled, “The Cuban Torture Program; Torture of American Prisoners by Cuban Agents” held on November 1999 provide some of the harrowing details.
“Earl Cobeil was a complete physical disaster when we saw him,” testified another fellow POW, Col. Jack Bomar. “He had been tortured for days and days and days. His hands were almost severed from the manacles. He had bamboo in his shins. All kinds of welts up and down all over; his face was bloody. Then the Cuban torturer again began to beat him with a fan belt. The Cubans unmercifully beat a mentally defenseless, sick American naval pilot to death.”
According to the book Honor Bound: “the tortures of U.S. POWs by Castro’s agents were the worst sieges of torture any American withstood in Hanoi.
And I repeat: Black Lives Matter “summons Fidel Castro’s integrity and guidance.”
