The Yankee Comandante. “…the incredible life of William Alexander Morgan, an American who began as a volunteer for Castro’s revolution in the mountains of Cuba, became one of the two non-Cuban comandantes (the other was Che) and ended up having his head blown off by one of the dictator’s firing squads.” The world’s useful idiots ignore the story of Ernst Röhm at their own peril.

William Morgan applauded by Castro

THe Che thread should have an immediate “go to” command to this story. Might make the who REVOLUCION! be seen in a very different light.

The truly committed leftards won’t understand what the big deal is about. To them, Morgan is just another imperialist that is trying to hide his true colors.

Another fine example of a useful idiot that got used and abused or in this case got himself killed. I knew of this because my high school history and government teacher made sure that we knew of it. If someone in today’s teaching environment even mentioned this in passing they would be removed from the class room for being incompetent.

I never thought I would see a link to The New Yorker here, but that was a great article and interesting story. Thank you for linking it.

Evidently, he who was “Solid” became nothing more than a “Sucker.”

Lesson learned the hard way. Always know who you are aligning yourself with. Countless naive souls aligned themselves with a message of hope and change in Castro’s quest for power, which on paper is a good thing. But they did not take into account the messenger, or those who sponsored his vague rhetoric.

Always be suspicious of people who promise things in a utopian world, with no real stated plan to demonstrate how we get to that place. If the nation learns nothing else from this experiment we call the Obama Administration, this would be the thing we need to engrave into our psyches for future use as an evaluation tool.

Having things involves working for them. Never should another person come along in the next 40 years to promote a utopian society that has never existed in this world.

I have heard some say that the world is out of pixie dust. I am telling you, it never existed to begin with.

As with all totalitarian dictators, Castro is a narcissistic megalomaniac. They can tolerate no other person who they feel might be a threat, and will ruthlessly destroy even their closest friends and advisers. Stalin, Hitler, Mao, and Chavez are all cut from the same cloth.

An amazing biography. I’ve never heard of him until today, which I find even more amazing.
