Trudeau Praises Castro. Flunked History in School
Justin Trudeau is the Prime Minister Of Canada. When he issued a statement about the death of Fidel Castro, it was classic liberal ignorance about who the Cuban dictator really was. Here is his full statement:
“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.”
Many Canadians were outraged and embarrassed by his statement. Others chose the moment to be funny. In either case, his statement demonstrates that liberals have absolutely no knowledge of history or of what happens inside a dictatorship. They live in their ivory towers completely oblivious to the truth. Shame on Justin Trudeau.
Oh, and p.s. Obama statement wasn’t much better- it glossed over Castro’s vicious regime as well.
Trudeau cites Castro’s “love for the Cuban people” Insult to the families of those shot, starved and unjustly imprisoned. #trudeaueulogies

Is this a real statement or a parody? Because if this is a real statement from the PM of Canada it is shameful & embarrassing. https://t.co/lFXeqU7Ws0
