Canadian PM Trudeau's statement on Fidel Castro's death met with ire, humor


Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose family's ties with the late Cuban leader Fidel Castro go back decades, mourned the loss of a "remarkable leader" on Saturday, sparking a flurry of criticism and humor at his favorable tone.

Comment: The statement

Follow the hashtag #TrudeauEulogies Good reminder: If you ever wondered where Jill Stein stands: A better view from Brit Hume:


  1. Castro wasn't perfect; none of us are. Why all the hate being spewed at Trudeau? Castro was a dynamic leader who stayed in power for decades, which is more than you can say more most leaders these day. The guy was faithful to the post of leader of Cuba and was not a quitter.

  2. The health care in Cuba in many respects is decades ahead of the USA, at least in certain areas. Granted, Castro was not perfect and did have his flaws, but I don't get the vitriol being shown Trudeau.

  3. JP, would this comment be considered off topic? In the link you gave it says this: "While Darth Vader did have his detractors he did create millions of jobs with his innovative infrastructure projects."

    When did Darth Vader all of a sudden change his iconic statement of "Luke, I'm your father" to "NO, I'm your father"? Huh, why did they do that? And did the mailman secretly come into my house and switch out my DVD copy of this movie, because I have the new and weird, "I'M your father" version and I didn't not ask for it to be switched.

    My apologies if you think this is off topic. I see the new rules stating no off topic commentary. But since your link did mention Darth Vador, I thought it was a good question.

  4. I am reminded of how liberals of the 1980s refused to understand what Solzhenitsyn--for that matter all those Russian Jews that came over in the early Reagan years--was saying about Communism. "Oh, it's a beautiful idea..." and all that....nonsense.

    A couple of years back, I realized that part of the way Cuba had low infant mortality rates is because their mothers were going hungry. Smaller baby and skinnier mother = easier delivery. But the left never thought it through that far.

  5. I like the comment about how great healthcare is in Cuba--as if a couple dozen patients at a Havana mental hospital hadn't frozen to death because workers were too lazy to shut windows and get them blankets. Great medical system to let people freeze to death in the tropics.
