Castro: Racist Right-wingers Fight Obama

Story Here


President Barack Obama is trying to make positive changes in the United States, but is being fought at every turn by right-wingers who hate him because he is black, former Cuban leader Fidel Castro said on Tuesday.

In an unusually conciliatory column in the state-run media, Castro said Obama had inherited many problems from his predecessor, George W. Bush, and was trying to resolve them. But the "powerful extreme right won't be happy with anything that diminishes their prerogatives in the slightest way."

Obama does not want to change the U.S. political and economic system, but "in spite of that, the extreme right hates him for being African-American and fights what the president does to improve the deteriorated image of that country," Castro wrote.

"I don't have the slightest doubt that the racist right will do everything possible to wear him down, blocking his program to get him out of the game one way or another, at the least political cost," he said.


So according to this wing nut ...

- If you are right wing, then you are racist.
- If you are against Obama's policies and changes, then you are racist.
- Obama isn't trying to change the U.S. political and economic system.

.... and that last one about not changing systems is a real hoot.

There are some Obama shills on the American MSM who spout the same nonsense.

Comment from the news article - Um ... why is Bill Richardson in Cuba? Where is our Secretary of State? hmmm ... perhaps the tabloid rumors are true? She's being pushed aside?

What I find far more ineresting is Castro coming out and saying anything at all. I don't know a lot about Cuban history, but what I gather is that for the most part, Castro doesn't usualy comment on American politics.

So I find it odd that he should come out and say anything at all, especially now.

The one thing that I think the Obama administration is doing correctly (if they actually go through with it) is that they want to open up our relationship with Cuba.

An open relationship, with all our goods and services and media entering Cuba, would help cut down on ignorant statements like the one Castro made about those against Obama's policies.

Castro is Castro. He will die as a genuine communist.

The reason that he is speaking out on this subject to support Obama is likely that he sees Obama as pushing an agenda he agrees with.

I don't see it as posturing or games. I see it as Castro truly speaking his mind. He hopes that Obama will get his way.

If Castro is in favor of Obama and his policies that should be a huge wake up call to voters.

And Castro is in the news all the time condemning the US.

Guilt by association? Surely you jest! There is no way that a story like this is put out to paint Obama and his supporters with the communist brush.

If Castro likes him, then he must be a commie!

Jesus, can't the right get their story straight?...

Is Obama a Comunist now, or still a fascist, or was it socialist, no?, how about Nazi?...

Pick one, stick to it already..

How about just a plain lying lawyer.
Just like the other 95% of DC.
Can't say we were not warned......

It would be very interesting to view a meeting between Castro and Obama.
Much would debated on ATS, from the greetings to parting of ways. Many hugs and kisses, I betcha.


What has happened to our Sec. Of State? She seems to have disappeared... Did she make it out of Africa...alive? On vacation? Getting ready to step down in preparation for a run for the big chair in 2012?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Seriously, I have not heard mention of her in awhile, not that I mind...

Last I heard, she and Bill had to cut their vacation to Bermuda short because of the hurricane...

BOT, if Castro is endorsing Obama, that tells me that I voted the right way last November (against Obama).

The tabloids are full of stories about Obama getting rid of her soon.
Yes, tabloids are usually wrong but once in a while they get it right.
And she does seem to be pushed aside a bunch. I'm not surprised.

Oh boy. Castro is a fan of Obama. Go figure. Great minds think alike don't they?


As for being called racist? I don't care anymore. They've done that one to death. They need to come up with some new material.

Thanks for the update!

Not a big Hillary fan myself, but with what we have now, I have to wonder if she would have been a better choice...for the country. Though I would not have
placed the X next to her name. We will never know what effects she would have had, choices made, etc., etc.


Looking forward to 2010, and beyond... keep your head up, and stay alert.

I have heard the rumors, briefly mentioned on the media services. A lot of speculation that she has become mighty disenchanted, and may step down to position herself for the big seat, again. I believe her chances are better than 2008 of gaining, at least, the nomination. I still shudder at the thought, but as I just replied to jsobecky, we will never know...

Thanks for the update on her whereabouts. I just feel more comfortable knowing than not...if you know what I mean.

No #, they do need some new material, and fast!

Funny how people fight labels. Label me whatever they please, I could give a # anymore. So far, less than a year into this presidency, to go against the admin. means I'm either -

1). A racist
2). A right-wing extremist
3). A - haha - domestic terrorist
4). A nazi
5). A conservative blowhard.

Basically, I'm labeled everything but what I am - a 30-something, pissed off American woman whose just about had enough of the juvenile name calling and crooked antics in Washington.

And an endorsement from Castro isn't gonna help Obama one bit - except to publicly show his stance.
