Recently Colin Kapernick became a media celebrity as a multi millionaire- professional quarterback with a dubious ability to win big games. He has lost six games in a row for his team. His major rise to media prominence occurred after he refused to stand for the National Anthem by “taking a knee” at the beginning of a game. He was immediately given a national forum to spout his ignorance about the nation that allows him freedom to speak his drivel while receiving a vast salary for merely playing a game. Kapernick demonstrated his profound lack of knowledge and understanding of recent world events.

Cuba, according to him, is a great political model for the world to emulate. Where Fidel Castro and Che Guevara were great revolutionaries and freedom fighters for the people. They established a fair and equitable society where everybody receives free healthcare, welfare and education services. These are supposed to be far superior to what we receive in the USA. It is where peace and tranquility are in abundance. It is a country where a single US dollar is so valuable in this poverty-stricken nation that it is immediately taken off the market and replaced with useless Cuban pesos. Kapernick even gave praise like another genius: basketball freak, Dennis Rodman, did to the greatness of North Korea’s wonderful society.

More devastating to the state of our society is that many “educated and media savvy people are also incredibly misinformed. The propaganda in the media and the indoctrination in higher education is so prevalent that many young college students and many 1960 anti-establishment hippies who have grown older but not wiser have perpetuated the socialist/communist propaganda in their elite positions.

Fidel Castro, probably killed more citizens per capita than did Stalin. The ultimate hero of these leftist advocates, Che Guevera, prolifically and joyfully executed many without due process. Che killed hundreds of innocent people by shooting them point blank in the head. He was a sadistic thug not a principled, humane person. His smiling face is seen on the shirts worn by middle to upper class utopian dreamers throughout the world.

North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un is also a brutal totalitarian. Kapernick’s anti government rants would end abruptly in North Korea when he was  unceremoniously killed. There is no 1st Amendment or any other laws to protect the people of North Korea or in most other countries of the world.

It is amazing that our university professors and most top commentators in the progressive media still express romantic sentiments of communist Cuba and even when discussing the historical Soviet Union. They gushed with admiration and love about the equality and political freedom of these failed experiments. It is torturous to be forced to listen to them just to get a college diploma.

President Obama’s formal statement concerning the passing of Fidel Castro is more bewildering than Kapernick and other delusional people. The President is a highly educated person who has firsthand interaction and knowledge of world leaders. Yet, he made this announcement not only to citizens of the US but the entire world. “At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing…, recalling countless ways Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families and the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and the world around him.” This sounds like a tribute to this brutal dictator.  

President Obama spoke these words while Cuban exiles gleefully rushed into Miami streets in order to celebrate Castro’s demise. For over 60 years, these exiles and tens of thousands of others have risked their lives to escape the poverty and firing squads of Cuba to experience freedom and opportunity in the USA. There is no doubt in the minds of the average past and present Cuban residents how to “judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and the world around him.” Fidel Castro was a horrendous, evil, despot to most of the Cuban people.

The members of Cuba’s ‘communist elite and other nation’s dictatorial elites would have an 180 degree opposite opinion. They would see him as a great revolutionary leader who “altered the course of individual lives, families and the Cuban nation” for equality, social justice and the welfare of the people.

Kapernick’s positive feelings for Fidel and Cuba are easy to understand. He is a product of our alt-left higher education and state media who glorify leftist statist nations.

President Obama’s reluctance to accurately describe Fidel’s actions is not the result of a lack of pertinent knowledge. He well knows the reality of this regime.  Perhaps it could be attributed to his belief that these atrocities committed by Fidel are short term, necessary means on his march to unify the family of nations into a one-world community of nations.  According to some, this fantastic accomplishment would justify the temporary drastic means to reach this unobtainable goal of eternal peace and equality for all.

Whatever the thinking process of President Obama and even Colin Kapernick, all patriotic Americans should cheer, “good riddance” to this brutal, murderous dictator’s demise.
