Last Wednesday, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro may have slipped into a coma.
On Saturday, his sycophant, Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez, flew into Havana (scroll down), possibly to bid a final farewell to his Cuban master. And Brazil’s President Lula da Silva made a slip of the tongue last weekend, saying ‘when Castro was alive…’ forgetting no one had announced that The Beast was dead. Meanwhile, Otto Reich reports that news agencies are getting visits from Castroite government functionaries regarding coming funeral arrangements, including seating, best camera angles, visas, how-tos ahead the coming spectacle…where guerrillas, tyrants, and Sandalista suckups will gather in one horrible place to mourn their hero.
Imagine, if you will, the amount of brainwashing or willful blindness--not to mention the degree of sociopathic selflessness--that an individual would have to possess to consider this psychopathic tyrant a "hero". It gives nuance to meaning to the word delusional.
We have been down this road before, though. Soon, bells will ring announcing that this last of the old-school Latin-American communist thugs (as opposed to the new school being run by Chavez) is not only merely dead, he's really most sincerely dead
