I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Congresswoman Diane Watson called Fidel Castro “one of the brightest leaders I have ever met,” and sheĀ  thinks his health care system is just great:

Lenin had a phrase for people like the Congresswoman, useful idiot

    Here’s the question:

    So what?

  2. Vast says:

    “Useful Idiot” doesn’t come from Lenin… even the Wikipedia article you linked states that there is no evidence that Lenin ever used the term.

  3. DJ says:

    Who votes for this idiots?

  4. Haywood says:

    Who votes for them? The same people that vote for Franken, Kennedy, Barney Frank, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, St. Barry O’Bama, Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein et al. The useful idiots, that’s who votes for them.

  5. Derek says:

    Outnumbered by useful idiots. That says a lot.

  6. Richard says:

    This is the best we have in her district. Send this bitch straight to Cuba.

  7. ROBERT says:

    Diane Watson is an idiot! There is no more descriptive term for this ignorant misinformed black woman to be sent back to Cuba would be an insult to Cubans send her to a KuKlux meeting to explain her stupid comments

  8. Frank says:

    How can a congressswoman be such an idiot?
    Amazing!!!

  9. Allan says:

    There is a fundamental character flaw with 90% of politicians. Maybe 10% are there to try to save us from the idiots!

  10. Maggie says:

    I cann’t believe that we have people like her as a congresswoman making such stupid comments. Send her to Cuba to perish from hunger like our brother and children in Cuba.

    Did the “Honorable” Diane Watson just admit breaking the law? In a recent townhall rant heaping praise on Commissar she commented that “you should go down to Cuba and see what they have done with healthcare.” http://www.breitbart.tv/la-congresswoman-praises-cuban-revolution-castros-health-care-system/ Besides other mis-guided comments, the Representative urged Americans to “go see for yourself.” I wonder if she is aware travel to Cuba has been PROHIBITED to US Citizens, as is any type of Commerce between US Citizens and Cuba since the 60’s. (please note travel restrictions have been somewhat eased within the past few weeks. (http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/cis/cis_1097.html)

    During her rousing speech she also heap mounds of praise Che Guevara for all his good deeds in effecting the revolution. I wander what history book she studied? As I recall Che Guevara did not merely blow cigar smoke in the face of the rich people and ask them to leave, he was reasonable for executing the majority, elevating him in the annuals of history to just below the great mass murderers like of Hitler, Stalin, Chairman Mao, and Pol Pot to the Cuban Citizens who fled their land and homes.

    Hey, I have an idea, use my tax dollars to buy the Honorable Watson and the rest of her Marxist pals in DC an inner tube and send their ass to Cuba where they can enjoy the Cuban Health Care system and celebrate Che Guevara all they want!

    Thank you, Moronic Congresswoman Watson, for revealing your ignorance about Cuban history. Let me help you out with a little bit of history. Che Guevara was a an Argentinian malcontent that joined Fidel Castro in the Sierra Maestra (a mountain, not a drink) that let to the overthrow of the Fulgencio Batista Government on January 1, 1959. These two murderers then proceeded to slaughter those that oppossed their views and turned a paradise into a floating Gulag… Gulag, by the way, is a prison. While listening to the sound bite of your idiotic disertation on Cuban History I couldn’t help but laugh to hear you speak about Fidel Castro in the past tense as if he were dead. Guess what you moron, El Caballo (a derogatory term for Fidel) is still alive and still mudering Cubans. If it helps you out he was the guy that you met in Habana, with the white beard, that you thought was Santa Claus. In closing, if you need to find your ass, it’s that large area to the rear of your fat gut that has grown to an enormous size since you’ve been feeding it with your goverment issued credit card, paid for by hardworking Americans.

    I cannot believe we have representatives praising fidel castro! If Diane Watson is so proud of Cuba and the fine job fidel castro is doing why is she living here in the United States. She should go to Cuba for her and her family’s health care. That would save us some money!

  14. Ray Caballero says:

    As an American citizen born in Cuba and after living in Cuba for 32 years i can confirm that this “lady” is really an idiot. It is a shame she can represent a community in our Congress.
    Castro treats his people as animals in the farm: food and health care to survive, but no freedom. That is what she wants for America?

  15. Alice says:

    Derek, you are obviously as IGNORANT as Ms Watson.
    “So what?”??? Really? Her complete and blatant disregard for historical facts is bewildering and outright frightening. Castro’s govt has slaughtered hundreds of thousands of citizens in Cuba over the past 50 years simply for opposing his views and his ‘rules’!!!!! And the survivors of that totalitartian regime would prefer to perish on makeshift rafts in the Florida Straits than endure one more month, week, or day, in that hell-hole that is Castro’s Cuba. And you’re thinking: So what?? This woman represents an entire community in the USA!!
    I agree with the comment above: use my tax dollars to get you people some inner tubes and send you to Cuba: ENJOY the healthcare and education and FREEDOM there. Knock yourselves out.

  16. [...] Well, it’s not that pathetic, at least not to all the young people enthralled with communist paraphernalia (Che chic comes to mind, but Obama-mania is Soviet-like in its cult of personality). These are the same young people who routinely demonstrate under the neo-Stalinist banner. I write about it all the time. I think that, actually, the further we’re removed historically from the brutality of Soviet rule during the Cold War, combined with the popularization of a pseudo-hip antiwar-postmodernism, there’s no real recoil against the idea of Marxist-Leninist ideologies. Folks even laugh when they hear the word “communism,” since that’s, well, ancient history for many. Now it’s “progressive” to praise Castro’s healthcare regime, and that’s not just by idealistic college kids, but by members of Congress! [...]

    She like that “stupit” sicko don’t know that the people don’t have medicine if you don’t have “DOLLARS” and she never went to the hospital were the Cuban suppose to go,
    no food to give them, no towel, no sheets to cover themself,
    no gloves. A used to be a rich country is less than a third one right now.
    I’m from Argentina, I went there to get a degree and I was atonish to see the monster inside, I change the way I used to think….We don’t need Congresswoman like this one.
