As Cuban broadcast radio lights up with the traditional massive communist outpouring of mourning, Reuters confirms the news that indeed the evil murderer of Havana is finally dead:
Fidel Castro, the Cuban revolutionary leader who built a communist state on the doorstep of the United States and for five decades defied U.S. efforts to topple him, died on Friday. He was 90.
A towering figure of the second half of the 20th Century, Castro stuck to his ideology beyond the collapse of Soviet communism and remained widely respected in parts of the world that had struggled against colonial rule.
He had been in poor health since an intestinal ailment nearly killed him in 2006. He formally ceded power to his younger brother Raul Castro two years later.
Wearing a green military uniform, a somber Raul Castro, 85, appeared on state television on Friday night to announce his brother’s death.
“At 10.29 at night, the chief commander of the Cuban revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, died,” he said, without giving a cause of death.
Maybe Raul will follow suit and that nation can finally rid itself of the evils of a communist system which has enslaved the population for half a century. I wonder if Colin Kaepernick and Sean Penn will start to cry once they sober up to hear the news this morning.
In Miami the party started last night and I’m sure will not end until some time on Sunday:

Fidel Castro died, and Cuban Miami did what it does in times of community celebration: It poured onto the streets of Little Havana — and Hialeah, and Kendall — to honk horns, bang pans, and set off more than a few fireworks, saved for exactly the sort of unexpected special occasion that proved worthy of their detonation.
The scene across Miami-Dade County, the cradle of the Cuban exile community, was one of pure, raw emotion. This time, after decades of false alarms, Castro’s death was real.
The video from Little Havana tells the tail of truth when a communist dictator dies:
In another of the many articles at the Miami Herald, this quote truly sums up how freedom lovers feel about this rat bastard dying overnight:
The totalitarian dictator is dead. May his police state and inhumanity be buried along with him.
