Could this year get any better? Brexit, Trump’s win, and then the death of murderous Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
But the answer is “yes, it could,” especially if you love irony, believe in karma — or that God has a sense of humor.
The following story sounds like a scene from the old Woody Allen movie “Bananas,” a door-slamming farce about hilariously incompetent Central American communist revolutionaries in the Castro/Che mold. But this time, it’s life imitating art.
Behold, the “Keystone commies,” as Terresa Monroe-Hamilton dubs them, reporting for Right Wing News:
[T]he jeep pulling Fidel Castro’s ashes through the final funeral procession broke down and needed to be pushed by soldiers. (…)
The breakdown came in the midst of throngs of “adoring fans” chanting “Long Live Fidel!” in state-mandated displays of emotion.
Yes, it’s hilarious but Monroe-Hamilton adds a solemn reminder:
This is a man that lived like a billionaire while his people struggled in abject poverty. He had thousands killed and tortured. Castro had reeducation camps built and sanctioned the practice of post-birth abortions. He was a monster. The world is so much better without the likes of Fidel Castro. He was a murderous butcher and a dictatorial thug.
