Fidel Castro lectures Obama after Cuba trip

by NICK GASS  |  published on March 28, 2016

President Barack Obama did not meet with Fidel Castro during his historic visit to Cuba last week, but apparently that does not mean that Castro did not have any thoughts about el presidente norteamericano in his country.

Castro ripped into the president and his words during the visit in El Granma, the official state newspaper of the Cuban Communist Party, bringing up Obama’s relative youth, the failed Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961 and the role of both countries in ending the apartheid in South Africa and elsewhere on the continent in an article titled “El hermano Obama.”

“Native populations do not exist at all in the minds of Obama,” Castro wrote. “Nor does he say that racial discrimination was swept away by the Revolution; that retirement and salary of all Cubans were enacted by this before Mr. Barack Obama was 10 years old.”

Referring to the 1961 failed invasion of the Bay of Pigs, Castro wrote of the U.S.’ “mercenary force with cannons and armored infantry, equipped with aircraft … trained and accompanied by warships and aircraft carriers in the U.S. raiding our country. Nothing can justify this premeditated attack that cost our country hundreds of killed and wounded.”

Castro referred also to Obama’s invocation of both countries’ role in the end of apartheid in South Africa, remarking upon his country’s 1975 intervention in Angola backing the leftist People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola against other U.S.-backed revolutionary forces. Ridding apartheid South Africa of nuclear weapons “was not the goal of our solidarity,” he wrote, “but [rather] to help the people of Angola, Mozambique, Guinea Bissau and other fascist colonial rule of Portugal.”

    el presidente norteamericano – making friends around the globe.

    King Bo met the jolly old foe – Fidelito is still a ranter but for a change Fidel was fairly accurate in his observations. Gee – was Fidel being racist – anyone else that talks badly about the Pretender in Chief is always a racist.

    You have to love it. I think it is hysterical that his hero just smoked him soooo bad.

    Castro is too old to appreciate the good President Obama has done to Cubans. I am meeting Cubans in malls and stores and all are excited that they now can visit their loved one in Cuba. Cuban living here love Obama’s steps to normalize tensions between the two countries.

      I think you missed the point!

        MeWynne, you missed the point!!!!!!!!!!!

      pmbalele, you are right, Castro is too old to know what is going on. He does not have a clue about the big picture here regarding bringing down walls, and promoting freedom and reconciliation between countries, the people and their families. Some of the people here posting are posting out of ignorance. This is probably the same ignorance that votes for Donald Trump. Castro is probably in his 90s and suffering from short term and long term memory loss.

        President Obama was either not born or he was a baby when this happened. So He blames President Obama for what some other US war mongering president did: “Referring to the 1961 failed invasion of the Bay of Pigs, Castro wrote of the U.S.’ “mercenary force with cannons and armored infantry, equipped with aircraft … trained and accompanied by warships and aircraft carriers in the U.S. raiding our country. Nothing can justify this premeditated attack that cost our country hundreds of killed and wounded.”

          Did you notice the cars Cubans are still driving? Those are from 50s and 60s. Maybe Cubans can now trade those with current models. People here may love to buy the cars now in Cuba. They are now collectibles.

          • Jon Ockunzzi

            Nobody really wants those terribly modified and horribly remodeled cars. It would cost way too much to restore them.

      • Ken says

        I think Castro is a scum bag and for the first time he is right – Castro really nailed it – the old ranter knows a phony when he sees one.

    • Jon Ockunzzi

      Yeah, I bet Rubio and Cruz are happier than pigs rolling in dung.

  • Evan

    That’s funny! Even Castro knows obama is a first class AH!

    • Abel

      Not quite up to perfect.
