California Commie: Barbara Lee Praises Fidel Castro And His Revolution [VIDEO]

US Representative Barbara Lee, a Democrat from California, has made her public statement on the passing of Fidel Castro. Unsurprisingly her words are merely ongoing proof of her ignorance of history. Read her misinformed words below:

“My deepest condolences to Fidel Castro’s family and the Cuban people during this time.

While there are many disagreements between our countries, President Castro was a recognized world leader who was dedicated to the Cuban people.

It is my hope that we continue to build on President Obama’s efforts to end the failed embargo, lift the travel ban and normalize relations between our two countries.”

No, Ms. Lee, Castro was not a President who was dedicated to the Cuban people. He was a brutal dictator dedicated to oppressing, murdering and torturing his people. He separated families, imprisoned dissidents and used firing squads to kill political opponents.

She added to her opinion in an interview with the East Bay Times:

“We need to stop and pause and mourn his loss. I was very sad for the Cuban people. He led a revolution in Cuba that led social improvements for his people.”

Actually Ms. Lee, he made the lives of Cubans a living hell. There were no social improvements, only horrible conditions in every aspect of the culture. And no Cuban, except perhaps his brother, is “mourning his loss.” Good riddance to bad rubbish, he was a vicious tyrant.

Ms. Lee is uninformed, completely ignorant of the facts and seemingly has no qualms about sharing that lack of knowledge with the world. Of course her ignorance could have something to do with the fact that she went to Cuba and met Castro, along with California journalist Belva Davis. Both of them are pictured in 2009 at the top of this article with Castro. See below for video of Raul Castro announcing his brother’s death.

Ms. Lee has been in Congress since 1998. And she has spent those years promoting progressivism and liberal policy. And she predictably joins a long line of willfully ignorant Democrats and Leftists in “mourning” the loss of a tyrant. Time to go back to history class Ms. Lee. And until you learn the truth about Cuba and Castro, perhaps you’d best not share your opinions. You make yourself look foolish.
