The Castro hypocrites of the left

Erick Erickson:
It is impossible to take seriously any person who thinks Donald Trump is a threat to freedom and democracy when that same person mourns the loss of Fidel Castro. But that is what we are seeing from the American left.

Many are hailing him as a hero of the poor, though he kept people in poverty. They hail his success at universal healthcare, though the Cuban healthcare system is in shambles. They hail him as a hero for equality despite his implementation of racist policies that kept black Cubans out of government and in the shadows. They turn a blind eye to how he treated gays and AIDS patients.

They ignore the many people tortured and killed by Fidel Castro.

But they obsess about Donald Trump.
What this tells you is that their arguments against Trump are typical of the bad faith in which they treat political opponents while they embrace leftist despots.
