Reports from Cuba’s Venezuela: Happy 88th, Fidel!

By Francisco Toro in Caracas Chronicles:

Happy 88th, Fidel!

chavezyfidel

Actual caption under this photo in the VTV piece celebrating this joyous occasion: “Chávez y Fidel: La amistad de dos pueblos." [Chavez and Fidel: The friendship between two nations]

Check back in five years from now, when VTV will probably be running things like:

Caracas, August 13th, 2019, VTV – Today the nation celebrates the 93rd birthday of Fidel Castro, the Cuban-born doctor and revolutionary who, on February 4th, 1992, was second in command in Comandante Chávez’s brave attack on Cuartel Moncada. Aboard their legendary ship, Granma, Chávez and Fidel gallantly steamed up the Rio Guaire for a glorious ambush against the Fascist forces of dictator Carlos Andrés Batista.

En serio, chamo, yo así no puedo…

    Look at them: aberrant and dysfunctional, but totally prepared to screw over millions of people, which they did--and they're still at it, in effect. A delusional alien adventurer whose arrogance eventually proved fatal, and an illegitimate spoiled BS artist who felt entitled to flush a whole country down the toilet to satisfy his ego. Neither of them was worth a single hair on my mother's head, yet she lies in a foreign grave, while these bastards still hold sway in the country she had to leave to save her children from them. But according to the "enlightened," I'm supposed to get over it, and move on, and "reconcile." I pity the fools, assuming they're no worse than that.
