‘Moderate’ Democrat Bloomberg Perfectly Echoes Stalinist Dictator Fidel Castro on Gun-grabbing

“.. It’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot. You just do not want the average (U.S.) citizen carrying a gun…”-Michael Bloomberg, Jan. 4, 2020 

“Guns? What for?...to fight the government? The Cuban people don’t need guns nowadays.” -Fidel Castro during his very first speech upon entering Havana Jan. 8, 1959

Jack Wilson, the “average U.S. citizen” that inspired Michael Bloomberg’s Castroite declaration, saved the lives of countless fellow “deplorables” when he expertly whacked—with one perfect shot—a murderous criminal at West Freeway Church of Christ in the famous Texas Church shooting in White Settlement, Texas, on December 29th

Shortly, Texas Gov. Abbott honored the citizen-hero Jack Wilson with his state’s highest civilian honor, the “Governor’s Medal of Courage”:  

"So many lives were saved because of Jack Wilson's quick action, his calmness under pressure, and above all else his courage and his willingness to risk his own life to save the lives of others," Abbott said during the ceremony. "Only God knows who is alive today because of Jack Wilson."

Apparently that sort of thing disgusts Michael Bloomberg. Heck, White Settlement, Texas, even sounds like a town full of farmers! Those dumb brutes! For all Bloomberg knew, Wilson might have been a farmer himself! 

At any rate, shortly after Fidel Castro’s famous speech, the process of gun confiscation started in Cuba—but gradually. Initially it was aimed at disarming rival revolutionary groups, who had fought Batista but weren’t Communist-backed. 

But soon the definition of these “rival revolutionaries” grew pretty sweeping. It started to include just about every Cuban with a gun. Significantly, Castro’s famous anti-gun speech was proclaimed a full two years before he came out of the closet as a full-fledged Marxist-Leninist.  

As it turned out, the few guns still in the hands of (mostly redneck, yes those “dumb” people Bloomberg sneers at) Cubans from 1960-1966 caused great panic for the Soviet satrap Castroites. These few guns resulted in the only genuine Cuban guerrilla war of the 20th century. And it can’t be repeated often enough—it was fought against the utterly bogus “rural guerrillas” Fidel Castro and Che Guevara.

Can somebody please inform Bernie Sanders of the above guerrilla war?  Because Bernie claims: “In 1959 everybody was totally convinced that Fidel Castro was the worst guy in the world and all of the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro…They forgot that he educated their kids, gave their kids healthcare, totally transformed the society…..So they expected this tremendous uprising in Cuba, but it never came.”

Farm collectivization was no more voluntary in Cuba than in the Ukraine. And Cuba's Kulaks (“deplorables”) had guns, a few at first anyway. Around 1960 thousands of Cuba’s enraged campesinos (rural folk, who Bloomberg sneers at) grabbed their guns and started fighting desperately as Castro and Che Guevara started stealing their land to build Soviet Kolkhozes, while murdering and jailing all who resisted.

This insurgency, 90 miles from the U.S. shores, involved 10 times the number of rebels, 10 times the number of casualties and more than twice the amount of time as the teeny little skirmish against Batista. Had the rebels gotten a fraction of the aid the Afghan Mujahideen received, they would have been victorious.

I won’t bother asking if you’ve ever heard of this ferocious insurgency on our very doorstep from The FAKE History Channel, FAKE News Media, or your professors. These valiant and desperate insurgents were fighting the Worldwide Left’s premier pin-up boys: Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. That’s all you need to know about the media/ Hollywood silence. This (thoroughly-documented) insurgency turns on its very head everything the Media/Hollywood complex would have us believe about Che Guevara and Fidel Castro.

Quite interestingly, when “brutal fascist dictator!” Batista ran Cuba, everybody from The New York Times to Look to Boys Life (really!) was perfectly free to traipse around the island at their every whim, “reporting” on the (utterly bogus) guerrilla war (i.e. transcribing Castro and Che’s lies.) But don’t take it from me. After all I have “an axe to grind!” Fine, take it from Che Guevara himself from his diaries:  “Much more valuable than rural recruits for our Cuban guerrilla force were American media recruits to export our propaganda.”

Alarmed by the widespread and savage (and utterly unreported by the worldwide media) insurgency, Castro and Che sent a special emissary named Flavio Bravo whimpering to their Bolshevik sugar-daddy Khrushchev. “We are on a crusade against kulaks like you were in 1930,” whimpered this old–line Cuban Communist party member. 

In short order, Soviet military “advisors,” still flush from their success against their own campesinos in the Ukrainian Holocaust were rushed to Cuba. 

This anti-Stalinist rebellion found no intrepid U.S. reporters anywhere near Cuba’s hills. What came to be known as The Bay of Pigs invasion was originally planned as a link-up with the Cuban resistance of the time, which was more numerous (per-capita) than the French resistance before D-Day. 

Che Guevara had a very bloody (and typically cowardly) hand in one of the major anti-insurgency wars on this continent. Many of these anti-communist redneck/guerrillas were executed on the spot upon capture, a Che specialty. "We fought with the fury of cornered beasts," said one to describe their desperate freedom fight against the Soviet occupation of an island 90 miles from U.S. shores through their proxies Fidel Castro and Che Guevara. 

In fact, if Cuba’s anti-Castro rebels had gotten similar help from the U.S. as George Washington’s anti-British rebels got from France, some murderers and bandits named Fidel Castro and Che Guevara would get less Wikipedia space today than Pancho Villa. In fact, more French troops fought and died at Yorktown than did colonial rebels.

Small arms shipments from these (genuine) Cuban guerrillas’ compatriots in south Florida were their major lifeline. But Kennedy’s Missile-Crisis “solution” (swindle) with Khrushchev cut this lifeline. It’s a tribute to the power of Castroite/Fake News Media/Hollywood mythology that even with all this information a matter of public record for almost half a century the academic/Fake News Media/Hollywood mantra (gloat, actually) still has Castro, “defying ten U.S. Presidents!”

What a pathetic joke. Instead, Cuba’s own sons were sandbagged by a U.S. president from “nation-building” in their own nation on America’s very doorstep—and where a free and prosperous nation that attracted waves of first-world immigrants had actually existed only a few years earlier.

Later U.S. presidents, mostly relying on Deep State “experts,” sent hundreds of thousands of America’s sons across vast oceans to “nation-build” in places where “nation-building” had the same chance as a snowball in Hades.
