When Ziva posted the link to “Who’s the Worst Dictator?” by Nicholas D. Kristof in The New York TImes, it was an exercise to intended to correct the omission of the castro brothers on that list. Some of the moonbattery in the comments was expected: some commenters said Bush was the worst — ignoring the fact that they were able to say it without being arrested. (Liberals are fun!) The comment below, however, is a classic. It reads so over the top that it almost sounds like parody. I fear it’s not. Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you utter stupidity and complicity with crimes against humanity, right here on our shores:
Don’t talk about Cuba in such negative terms. Before the Cuban people rose up and help Comandante Castro to power Cuba was a colony of the United States that was run by the mafia and a small number of white racists Cuban families who kept Cuba’s non white population in a state of quasi slavery. You thought South Africa was bad!? Who do you think taught the South Afrikaners about apartheid? It was the Batiatiano [sic] Cuban expats who now control the city (or should I say, Banana Republic) of Miami!
I think the United States under the Bush admin has been the worst dictatorship in recent years – it’s virtually eliminated a woman’s natural right to abortion on demand, it has demonized gays, lesbians, and transgenders into criminals by not offering them legal marriage, tortured men whose only crime was a Middle Eastern accent and the unfortune [sic] they weren’t born white and Christian. To say that Cuba and Fidel Castro is a dictatorship is a crime and a gross act of ignorance. For your information, if you don’t know it already, Cuba under Fidel is one of the most progress [sic], egalitarian, nations around. It’s a model of social justice, equality, racial justice. It’s citizens are amongst the most educated and they have the preveledge [sic] to receive free education and health care – something the Bush administration doesn’t want because it wants the poor to die and the non white to be uneducated! Furthermore in the fascist dictatorship that is the Bush administration dictatorship – Cuban Americans play a very important part in the Bush Administration. Think of hard line anti Castro Miami Cubans as Bush’s Praetorian Guard who where responsible with everything from stealing 2 elections, to destroying the levies in New Orleans during the man made Katrina disaster!
