Canadian Prime Minister honors freedom loving Fidel Castro

Can you imagine a chief of state of a free, democratic country saying these things about the death of Stalin or Hitler? Yet what is the difference? Jailed or tortured for thought crimes. Killed for defying the state. Public parades with forced adoration. Reeducation camps for political dissidents. Suppression of religion. Equal opportunity poverty except for state officials who own vast real estate holdings and gorgeous palaces which they stole from the owners who fled the country. 
“It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President.
“Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.

“While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro’s supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for “el Comandante”.
“I know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba.
“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.”
 "Today, the media take a brief time-out from worrying about Trump being a dictator to praise Fidel Castro." – Anne Coulter

Cuban Americans have made wonderful contributions to our society, but so have the descendants of those killed in the gulags of Russia, the furnaces of Europe, the reeducation camps of China, North Korea and VietNam. We wish it could have been different. It's like our blinded officials cannot see history or learn from it.
