Dead terrorist who pioneered filming a terror group’s murders, who craved the destruction of the U.S. and a worldwide war to spread his murderous ideology–and who hideously tortured/murdered many American citizens–hailed to high heavens by Media and Democrats

Here’s what Castro did to (U.S. citizen) Howard Anderson (seen above, with family ) who resisted the theft of his filling stations and Jeep dealership by Castro’s gunmen in 1960. First the show trial:

“Death to the American!” screamed Howard Anderson’s communist prosecutor at his farce of a trial on April 17, 1961. “The prosecutor was a madman!” says a Swiss diplomat who witnessed the trial, “leaping on tables, shrieking, pointing, as Mr. Anderson simply glared back.”

Then the torture and murder: “In one final session of torture, Castro’s agents drained Howard Anderson’s body of blood before sending him to his death at the firing squad.”

Two days after his “trial,” Howard Anderson’s refused a blindfold, to glare at his executioners. Medically he was probably in shock at the time from the blood-draining. “Fuego!” The bullets shattered Howard Anderson’s body at dawn on April 19, 1961.”

According to the book Honor Bound: “the tortures of U.S. POWs by Fidel Castro’s agents were “the worst sieges of torture any American withstood in Hanoi.” “Earl Cobeil was a complete physical disaster when we saw him,” testified another fellow POW, Col. Jack Bomar. “He had been tortured for days and days and days. His hands were almost severed from the manacles. He had bamboo in his shins. All kinds of welts up and down all over; his face was bloody. Then  the Cuban torturer again began to beat him with a fan belt.”

He helped train and fund  practically every terror group on earth, from the Weathermen to Puerto Rico’s Macheteros, from Argentina’s Montoneros, to Colombia’s FARC, from the Black Panthers to the IRA  and from the PLO to AL Fatah.


“Viva Fidel! Viva Che!” (Two-time candidate for the Democrat presidential nomination Jesse Jackson, bellowing while arm in arm with Fidel Castro himself in 1984.)

“Fidel Castro first and foremost is and always has been a committed egalitarian. He wanted a system that provided the basic needs to all Cuba has superb systems of health care and universal education…We greeted each other as old friends.” (Former President of the United States and official “Elder Statesman” of the Democrat Party, Jimmy Carter.)

“Fidel Castro could have been Cuba’s Elvis!” — Dan Rather

“Fidel Castro is old-fashioned, courtly—even paternal, a thoroughly fascinating figure!” — Andrea Mitchell

“Castro has brought very high literacy and great health-care to his country. His personal magnetism is powerful, his presence is commanding.” — Barbara Walters.

“Castro is very shy and sensitive,” gushed McGovern after his first Cuban visit in 1975. “I frankly liked him…. It might seem hard to believe, but I spent a total of 14 hours with him. By the end of that experience I felt I really knew the man and I felt that he knew me, and we’ve had a rather friendly relationship ever since.”

All quotes above thoroughly documented here.
