Call it a contrary endorsement: if this bloody-handed dictator is against the Tea Party movement, it must be a good thing:
Speaking to a group of students visiting Havana, former Cuban leader Fidel Castro accused the Tea Party of leading the United States towards “fascism.”
In his comments, Castro chided the United States as a “ruined nation” and derided the Tea Party as “extreme right.”
Forgetting for a moment that fascism is a product of the Left and is the opposite of everything the Tea Party stands for, I just have this sneaking feeling that, given their choice, many Cubans would prefer a Tea rather than a Communist Party, right about now.
