An Insider’s look at Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s life of luxury, ladies and political executions – while the people of Cuba were starved and murdered if they dared leave:
Since New Year’s Day in 1959 when Fidel Castro took over control of the island nation of Cuba – much was promised – and little was given to the citizens of this less-than-Third world country. Castro’s guerrilla army easily defeated the 25-year dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista, and Fidel vowed that share the nation’s wealth with its poorest citizens.
Over the decades, however, it was Fidel Castro – or “El Líder Maximo,” as he was known by the poor Cuban folks who took in the spoils. Castro lived in dozens of masive, beautiful mansions, had mistresses, an island near the island, seduced any woman around him, murdered his detractors and enjoyed a life of riches beyond belief. How many Americans have admired this man – including politicians, entertainers, authors, pundits, academics, etc?
A Cuban government insider claims Castro had sex with at least two women a day; at lunch, dinner and sometimes at breakfast. His guards would prowl the beaches of Havana to recruit women. A Vanity Fair reporter in 2008 revealed that he loved to flirt and littered his speech with crude sexual innuendos. When asked how many children he had, he said, laughing, “Well, I don’t have a tribe. Not that much, fewer than a dozen.”
Sound familiar? Then the rest of the story will too. Except that it’s well-educated prophecy:
Deep poverty, teen prostitution, crumbling houses, food rations, political opponents executed by the thousands by firing squad, or sentenced to decades of hard labor. People who tried fleeing in make-shift boats constructed of anything that would float were routinely blown out of the water by Soviet MIG fighter jets. This is the reality of Cuba and the harsh life under Fidel and the Castro boys.
But what about how the leaders lived? Either read on, or just pick up the book “Animal Farm” if you’re really feeling scholarly. Shame kids are not required to read this classic about some animals being more equal than others. Any millenial wearing Castro gear or Michael Moore should be sat down and forced to read a new book out called; “The Double Life of Fidel Castro: My 17 Years as Personal Bodyguard to El Líder Maximo.”\
The tome tells the tale of Socialism and how it’s leaders live in luxury while being forced to become ever-more harsh on a populace which grows hungry and angry pretty fast after you run out of other people’s money: Fidel stole a fortune offering safe haven to drug traffickers, had dozens, maybe hundreds of women, and even once threatened his own brother, Raul, with death when he fell into into alcoholism in the ’90s.
Juan Reinaldo Sanchez, Castro’s longtime bodyguard – is now telling his story and it is a must-read for any aspiring Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, believing or preaching that Socialism is just and fair.
It’s mass-murder. Perhaps it’s time all the Freshman Democrat Congress people come to grips with the reality of the true poverty and death Socialism and Communism has wrought?
I suppose Fidel would have his eye on her – and his elite guards, should she resist… OAC has millions of followers – but no responsibility. She’s cute, but not an adult and Boston University should be ashamed of encouraging any thoughts of the United States dabbling in Socialism.
Back to Castro: From the NY Post-
With his shaggy beard and rumpled, olive-drab fatigues, Fidel Castro presented himself to the world as a modest man of the people. At times, he claimed he made just 900 pesos ($43) a month and lived in a “fisherman’s hut” somewhere on the beach.
But Castro’s public image was a carefully crafted myth, more fiction than fact. “While his people suffered, Fidel Castro lived in comfort — keeping everything, including his eight children, his many mistresses, even his wife, a secret..
Most Cubans had no idea how, or even where, their secretive strongman actually lived. Even his first and second wives were kept out of the public eye — as was their leader’s two-timing. Castro cheated on his first wife, the upper-middle-class Mirta Diaz-Balart, with Natalia Revuelta. Castro cheated, too, on his second wife, seducing “comrade Celia Sanchez, his private secretary, confidante and guard dog for 30 or so years,” Sanchez wrote.
Castro also bedded his English interpreter, his French interpreter, and a Cuban airline stewardess who attended him on foreign trips, Sanchez wrote. “He doubtless had other relationships that I did not know about,” Sanchez wrote.
Castro was not loyal, executed people at will, destroyed anyone trying to leave and imprisoned at hard labor anyone daring to challenge him – his closest aides faced execution if it suited his agenda.
When Socialism fails, Communism kicks, the guns are confiscated, government leaders live like kings and the people starve with no rights.
