Charles will be in mourning today as a Leftist icon has died. Cuba’s communist dictator Fidel Castro, a man who took peoples property and bushiness, is at last dead.
HAVANA (AP) — Former President Fidel Castro, who led a rebel army to victory in Cuba, embraced Soviet-style communism and defied the power of 10 U.S. presidents during his half century rule, has died at age 90.With a shaking voice, President Raul Castro said on state television that his older brother died at 10:29 p.m. Friday. He ended the announcement by shouting the revolutionary slogan: “Toward victory, always!”
Castro’s reign over the island-nation 90 miles (145 kilometers) from Florida was marked by the U.S.-backed Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961 and the Cuban Missile Crisis a year later that brought the world to the brink of nuclear war. The bearded revolutionary, who survived a crippling U.S. trade embargo as well as dozens, possibly hundreds, of assassination plots, died 10 years after ill health forced him to hand power over to Raul.
Castro overcame imprisonment at the hands of dictator Fulgencio Batista, exile in Mexico and a disastrous start to his rebellion before triumphantly riding into Havana in January 1959 to become, at age 32, the youngest leader in Latin America. For decades, he served as an inspiration and source of support to revolutionaries from Latin America to Africa.
His commitment to socialism was unwavering, though his power finally began to fade in mid-2006 when a gastrointestinal ailment forced him to hand over the presidency to Raul in 2008, provisionally at first and then permanently. His defiant image lingered long after he gave up his trademark Cohiba cigars for health reasons and his tall frame grew stooped.
“Socialism or death” remained Castro’s rallying cry even as Western-style democracy swept the globe and other communist regimes in China and Vietnam embraced capitalism, leaving this island of 11 million people an economically crippled Marxist curiosity.
Castro finally got his wish, he died and will be burning in hell. Charles will be weeping and knows he will suffer the same fate.
Oh, shut up about Pam Geller. She’s equivalent to Nazis? How do you reach adulthood with that level of blind їdiocé, Charles? On Thanksgiving? Bet you’re a fun person to be around during holiday get-togethers with family (and friends, if you still have any).
At least there’s some funny on the thread:
What’s the percentage of sites that load faster? 69%?
Bonus: Some wag threadbombed the Pamtrum Convo already.
Yeah, let’s check this out. WOT tags AppNexus with a yellow caution flag, and there’s usually a good reason for it. In this case, the owner of the web advertisement company is a dick according to Forbes. No wonder Charles Johnson admires him.
Charles Johnson likes to use descriptive words that start with the letter V, like Vile, Vicious and Virulent. On the other hand, I’d describe Johnson as Vain, Voluminous and Vapid, and all with a capital VaJayJay. So what does Alexa have to say?
Charles Johnson Celebrates Twitter’s Takedown of “White Supremacist” Accounts, Posts Image of DemocratsPosted: November 16, 2016
I don’t follow white supremists like Charles Johnson does, so I can’t comment on the accuracy of his list. What I find ironic is the photo Johnson chose.
In 1951, photojournalist W. Eugene Smith was allowed into a Klan rally in South Carolina and that was one of his shots. In those days South Carolina was a One-Party State (with Jim Crow Laws) and everyone in that photo was a Democrat.
Johnson doesn’t understand the irony, and there’s no racism at Little Green Footballs either.
Hey, Charles. Your front porch needs sweeping.
Anyone who watched the election results coming in last Tuesday knew that something big was happening, and Charles Johnson was no exception. The Magical Jazzy Ponytail was headed for a meltdown when he posted this image before the fireworks even began:
Heads up to Captain Peepo: See-saws don’t go back and forth.
So we took a core sample, plugged it into the BRC Brute Force Cybernetics controller to see what would happen.
The test bot self-destructed, but the last message on the printout was, “GET IT OFF ME.”
The election is over and we can resume our regular Charles bashing. Today he blames Hillary loss on what he deems the Far Left.
There was lot of well-poisoning in this election, and a fucking horrible amount of it came from the far left.

Charles is far Left by any standards, so this group he is talking about must be Stalinist.
