This audio is from Thursday night’s town hall health care debate at Wade AME Church where Rep. Diane Watson [D] made some astonishing comments:
"They are spreading fear and they're trying to see that the first president who looks like me -- fails."
"People look at the United States as a country that has changed it's way and elected someone from Kenya and Kansas, I'll put it like that."
"You can think whatever you want to about Fidel Castro, but he was one of the brightest leaders I have ever met."
"You know, the Cuban Revolution that kicked out the wealthy -- Che Guevara did that. And then after they took over they went out among the population to find someone who could lead this new nation . . . and they found, well just leave it there , ha, ha, ha, an attorney by the name of Fidel Castro."
Last I checked Fidel is still alive. And where did she get her history of the Cuban Revolution? Che did all the work, and then they find a leader? An attorney?
The attack on Moncada Barracks happened July 26, 1953. After Fidel got out of prison, he went to Mexico, and that's where he met up with Che Guevara. It was Che joining up with Fidel, not the other way around. Diane! If you're going to promote and praise Cuban communism, why not at least learn a little of the history so you don't sound like a blathering fool?
