Put this in the column “you can’t make this stuff up.” That there are people in this world who actually believe Fidel Castro or Che Guevara were ‘heroes’ is absolutely horrifying.
This came across my Twitter feed. I’ve seen some really stupid things on Twitter, on a daily basis in fact, but this woman is running for political office in Ontario, which makes it not just stupid but dangerously stupid:
Fidel Castro is a hero. Period.
Anyone who says otherwise is extremely ignorant of history.

Of course, she got a lot of responses absolutely excoriating her for this. These are just a few:
Most heroes don’t torture and kill thousands of their political opponents and anyone else who opposes them.

Yes, Comrade, maintaining a complete hold on the people of Cuba, the means of production and all weapons – a Communist paradise where individuals and their spirit are completely supressed and subordinated to the State – he, like Joseph Stalin are amazing heroes of evil

Why would I listen to a white woman from Canada? All the Cubans who escaped and live in Miami say different

He was a Communist dictator, who killed thousands of people to gain power.

So many people responded to her lunacy that she decided to comment about it:
I really made reactionaries mad on here by saying the true fact that Fidel Castro is a hero.
Look, I'm sorry I hurt your feelings. When presented with new facts that contradict the propaganda you've been taught it's only reasonable you'd get mad!

Who IS this lunatic? Meet Clara the Commie:
It’s disturbing that so many people don’t understand the truth about Communism and actually seek to turn otherwise democratic countries into Communist sh*tholes of death.
It’s 2019, are people too stupid to read history books or have our history books been so altered by leftists that they no longer provide factual history anymore?
