Ever since Barack Obama announced he was normalizing relations with the Communist dictatorship of Cuba, liberals have been dancing with glee.

For many years, t-shirts honoring the Marxist thug, Che Guevara, have been popular among the trendy left.

But Barack Obama took it one step too far.

As part of opening relations, Obama traveled to Cuba and met with Dictator, Raul Castro for a press conference and a series of photo sessions.

In one photo, Obama is pictured standing with Cuban government officials and a monument of Che Guevara in the background.

Guevara earned the reputation for brutality while serving as Fidel Castro’s second-in-command during the Cuban Revolution. He is ranked as one of the greatest sociopaths of all time.

He presided over the torture, rape, and murder of Cuban deserters. He ordered summary executions of civilians as an intimidation tactic for those planning to fight against the Communist regime.

But, the Internet’s reaction to Obama honoring a Marxist revolutionary who ran Castro’s torture pens was scathing:

Now, when Ronald Reagan visited Berlin and was photographed in front of the Berlin Wall – the emblem of Communist rule in Eastern Europe – he delivered one of the most infamous Presidential speeches in American history. As he stood beside Soviet Leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, he thundered, “Tear down this wall!”

Within two years, the Berlin Wall fell and Communism collapsed.

But in contrast, Obama’s Deputy National Security advisor commented on how the freedom fighters rotting in Castro’s gulags are rightfully viewed as treasonous in Cuba.

And at press conference with Cuban strong man Raul Castro, Obama openly valued the dictator’s criticisms of the United States, and concurred with him.

The Federalist reports:

“There are profound differences between our countries that will not go away,” Castro said after chiding the United States for its “double standards” on human rights by keeping detainees in Guantanamo Bay and its policies on health care, education, and equal pay.

“I actually welcome President Castro commenting on some of the areas where he feels we’re falling short,” Obama said.

 Obama’s trip is clearly the antithesis of Reagan’s “tear down this wall” objective.

He has given Cuba his blessing to continue to imprison its dissidents and keep the memory of Marxism alive.
