One of the world’s most noted brutal dictators just died – Cuba’s Fidel Castro – so of course, those on the left, including President Obama, have been issuing expressions of regret, sadness and sorrow.
For instance, Obama said history would recall “the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families and of the Cuban nation” and record the “enormous impact” he had on the world, the Washington Post reported.
And Canada’s prime minister, Justin Trudeau, went a step further, saying Castro was “larger than life” who gave the Cubans “tremendous dedication and love,” while serving as a “legendary revolutionary and orator,” Independent Journal Review wrote.
But the fawning has now received some public counterpoints. Twitter, for instance, has become a platform for those mocking the overabundance of love and affection shown to Castro by the world’s leaders.
Trending is #Trudeaueulogies. Check out the dry humor.
One poster wrote: “With his innovative urban renewal program, Pol Pot bravely confronted the pressing challenge of overpopulation.”
Another: “#trudeaueulogies ‘Let us acknowledge Mr Pol Pot’s achievements in reducing overpopulation and building global sustainability.'”
A third: “#trudeaueulogies ‘As you know Mr. Hitler’s life has come to an end, he was known as a dog lover and a strong supporter of his race.'”
And yet one more: “Nero soaked Christians in oil and set them ablaze. But he also limited the need for lights and kept the religious warm. #TrudeauEulogies.”
