The liberal media are showering deceased Cuban despot Fidel Castro with accolades but some have taken their reverence for the dead Commie to another level. One of those who are now glossing over Castro’s monstrous reign of terror is MSNBC blowhard Chris Matthews who is badly in need of a drool bucket.

As reported by Breitbart News “MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Recalls Fidel Castro as a ‘Romantic Figure,’ ‘Folk Hero’”:

Early Saturday morning, MSNBC “Hardball” host Chris Matthews reflected on the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, who passed away late Friday.

Matthews explained that initially, Castro was regarded as a “romantic figure” and “folk hero.”

“I will remind everybody, certainly people who read about him in history, he was a romantic figure when he came into power, and when he knocked off the corrupt dictator Batista, we American young high school kids rooted like mad for the guy. We thought here was this guy in fatigues with a beard coming in out of the countryside leading a revolution and swept aside this old corrupt regime, and he was going to be almost like a folk hero to most of us for many months. And as Andrea pointed out he would go to ‘Meet the Press’ and go on to the ‘Jack Parr Show,’ which was a forerunner of ‘The Tonight Show,’ Jimmy Fallon’s show. And he would be a figure that you would look up to and say, ‘God, this guy is great.’”

It comes as no surprise that the closeted commies in the media and especially Democrat propaganda organ MSNBC are like Colin Kaepernick agonizing over the death of their hero but the truth is that the bearded fiend ruled with an iron fist while keeping the island nation of Cuba mired in a world circa 1959 and made it a place where political dissent was often met with death and torture. This may seem to be fine with the loony left but it is a pox on human dignity and any concept of freedom and liberty that the empty suits and loudmouths like Matthews and his ilk spew endless platitudes about but their true nature is revealed on the occasions where the mask briefly slips – like right after Castro’s death.

Shame on you Mr. Matthews!
