The Compassion of Communists and Liberals.

Harsh words about our beloved President Reagan from Cuba is to be expected, but Americans that disagreed with his policies have not shied away from ad homonym attacks and name-calling. My problem is not with the policy disagreements; my problem is the lack of respect given to the Reagan family in their time of grief. These people, who would rather attack than to give the Reagan family and friends a moments rest, are completely devoid of compassion.

Cuban Radio wishes Reagan had never been born.

    ”As forgetful and irresponsible as he was, he forgot to take his worst works to the grave. He, who never should have been born, has died."

    "His apologists characterize him as the victor of the Cold War,'' the radio broadcast said. "Those in the know knew that the reality was not so, but rather (he was) the destroyer of policies of detente in the overall quest for peace."
Here is what America’s staunch left have to say about Reagan. Can you even tell the difference? You won't be able to. There is none.

Christopher Hitchens wrote a column titled: Not Even a Hedgehog - The stupidity of Ronald Reagan. In it he makes this comment:

    "Ronald Reagan was neither a fox nor a hedgehog. He was as dumb as a stump. He could have had anyone in the world to dinner, any night of the week, but took most of his meals on a White House TV tray. He had no friends, only cronies. His children didn't like him all that much. He met his second wife—the one that you remember—because she needed to get off a Hollywood blacklist and he was the man to see.”
Heres Ted Rall again. Remember, he wrote the cartoon of Pat Tillman being an idiot for joining a “false” war in Afghanistan and Iraq. At the end of the cartoon he calls Pat an idiot. Now this:

    He recently hoped out loud that the late President Ronald Reagan is "turning crispy brown right about now"

    "Reagan was a public figure, and he was an idiot. And if he were around and lucid, he would probably say that it comes with the territory."

    “Reagan, like Bush 43, technically served in the military yet studiously avoided combat. Both men were physically robust, intellectually inadequate, poorly traveled former governors renowned for stabbing friends on the back--Reagan when he named names during McCarthyism. Both appointed former generals as secretaries of state and enemies of the environment to head the Department of the Interior. Both refused to read detailed briefings, worked short hours, behaved erratically in public appearances, ducked questions about sordid pasts, and relied on Christianist (the radical right equivalent of Islamist) depictions of foes as "evil" and America, invariably as embodied by himself and the Republicans, as "good." Based on intelligence as phony as that floated to justify the war against Iraq, Reagan bombed Muslim Libya.”

    “His clown-like dyed hair and rouged cheeks disgusted us. We hated him during the dark days he made so hideous, and, with all due respect, we hate him still.”
Columnist Greg Palast wrote an article titled: Killer, Coward, Conman - Good Riddance, Ronnie Reagan. In it he says:

    ”The New York Times today, in its canned obit, wrote that Reagan projected, "faith in small town America" and "old-time values." "Values" my ass. It was union busting and a declaration of war on the poor and anyone who couldn't buy designer dresses. It was the New Meanness, bringing starvation back to America so that every millionaire could get another million.

    "In Chaguitillo, all night long, the farmers stayed awake to guard their kids from attack from Reagan's Contra terrorists. The farmers weren't even Sandinistas, those 'Commies' that our cracked-brained President told us were 'only a 48-hour drive from Texas.' What the hell would they want with Texas, anyway?"

    Later in the article Greg writes:

    “Nevertheless, the farmers, and their families, were Ronnie's targets.

    In the deserted darkness of Chaguitillo, a TV blared. Weirdly, it was that third-rate gangster movie, "Brother Rat." Starring Ronald Reagan.

    Well, my friends, you can rest easier tonight: the Rat is dead.

    Killer, coward, conman. Ronald Reagan, good-bye and good riddance.”
And if you think that this is bad, wait till Monday, or maybe even as sooner. After Reagan’s body is buried, and the ceremonies are completed, there will be even more of the same. Those columnists who waited will have slightly more class than these oblivious troglodytes.
