Communist dictator of Cuba, who has ruled since 1959. Castro is a self-proclaimed Marxist-Leninist. He overthrew dictator Fulgencio Batista with promises of establishing a democratic government in Cuba. Instead, he moved the country towards communism by confiscating private businesses, doing away with private property, rationing food, and executing the communist opposition. Castro made the communist party the only legal party in the country, doing away with multi-party elections that are free and democratic. There is no freedom of speech, expression, and due process, and there is little freedom of religion.
Idiot: "Fidel Castro is the President and liberator of Cuba"
Cuban: "If by President you mean dictator and by liberator you mean oppressor, then yes."
