Trump vs Fidel
by Paquita Armas Fonseca (November 28, 2016)

The man who despises women and wants to confine them cloistered in their homes, who claims to raise a wall against Latino immigrants, who despise black people and deny homosexuals the right to marry, this brute of a beast full of money, President-elect of the United States, described Fidel as a "brutal dictator."
He's so rude, I guess he can scarcely read, for saying this sentence when everyone, from Pope Francis to Putin, are sorry for the death of the leader of this world still in development, the south, oppressed by the north, because this was, and is, Fidel, a giant for the whole part of the planet that does not belong to the First World.
Before hurling your dirty words, Mr. Trump, fill your country of literacy tutors, share the wealth with the poorer nations, bring education and food to Haiti, be a human being and not a spitfire.
You should learn from Obama, who said "We know that this moment fills Cubans - in Cuba and in the United States - with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him".
It's clear that these words of Obama mean that Cuba should not change the way the vast majority of Cubans wants, but rather as they would like in Washington so that it becomes almost another star on the American flag.
Obviously I don't think that Fidel was, or is perfect. I remember he was immense in the sixth congress of the UNEAC, while making a critical analysis on leftovers of racism in revolutionary Cuba or taking the blame for not reaching in 1970 the ten million tons of sugar.
And you are wrong on other things, Trump, but show me somebody tortured in a prisons, tell how many homosexuals have been killed for their sexual choices and above all, publish the money that Fidel owns abroad.
You, North American fascists, who have nothing of Lincoln, you are guilty of having made this country live in barracks atmosphere. You are guilty of making us live with the anxiety of being conquered by force, of making a large part of young people go to the United States, in search of a showcase that shows them as accomplices. You are guilty for the embargo against Cuba, which costs four billion and six hundred eighty thousand million dollars a year to Cuban economy.
Wash your mouth out, Mr. Trump, because this man that you call a dictator can give to you and to all your followers tons of dignity, culture and humanism, and teach you to be men and not puppets. If you want I can send you some bottles of Cuban mouthwash for halitosis.
