Haha, what? You do realize this guy's the closest thing we have to Hitler next to Isis right? He corrupted the country. Ask anyone who had to escape from Cuba. Yes escape. The story is always the same, the police turned into a militia that was being run by all the people who where basically the bullies when they were kids. It's a dictatorship over there. Castro was a dictator who rose to power by making people who were against him disappear.
To say that he was elected is offensive to democracy. It would be like if I lead an attack against the US government, won, and then I killed and threatened a bunch of people until I became president. And then killed and threatened even more people if they didn't do exactly as I said. Using the militia that I used to overthrow the government in the first place to enforce my power.
I mean how fucking dumb can you be. This is like when everyone was saying what a great leader Hitler was and people were saying it just for attention and I remember it was getting uncomfortably close to flat out praise.
God, how people can be so fucking stupid, I'll never fully understand.
Learn to read dumb ass. So far nothing you have said is irrelevant. Your mom should have swallowed you
Everything you have said is irrelevant
Sorry, I was actually directing that at the commentators. But I'd like to ask what kind of person gets so angry over this comment. I mean, nothing I said wasn't true, even if it was directed towards you, your reaction was so much bigger than what was said. Like geez lol
Eat my asshole @Telekinetic-Potato
