Cuban dictator Fidel Castro died last week and there has been a variety of reactions. Most people, especially Cuban refugees, celebrated. Liberals, on the other hand, reacted with inexplicable grief and sadness. To hear them talk, Castro was the most benevolent, loving, forward-thinking leader ever to walk the earth. College students tend to be especially stupid, so it’s perhaps not altogether surprising that they like Castro more than they like Trump.
Campus Reform visited American University after Castro died to see how millennials felt about the tyrant. They also asked the students who they liked better: Donald Trump, or Fidel Castro. A few students correctly identified oppressive aspects of Castro’s regime, like jailing, torturing and murdering dissidents, but very few admitted that this made them like Castro less than Trump.
Yep, let that sink in: these millennials actually said that Trump is worse than someone who actually killed thousands of people, because they don’t agree with Trump’s political positions.
One student talked about Fidel Castro’s “health reforms” as his reason for liking Castro more than Trump, saying, “I mean, right now I don’t think Donald Trump is very good, and I know that Fidel Castro has done some good things for the world so I’d say he’s proven himself at least in the long term to be more favorable.” Another student echoed Justin Trudeau, Canadian prime minister and worldwide laughingstock, calling Castro a “remarkable leader” and said that he “made possibilities for the Cuban people nearly endless.”
Another student said, “I would say, at this very moment, I have, um, a better opinion of Fidel Castro,” even though she had just spoken about how Castro oppressed his people. Yet another student said that if Trump’s presidency is “anything like he said it will be, then I think that Fidel Castro will absolutely have been a better leader.”
These are the future leaders of our country. Be scared.
