After the shocking news that Shinzo Abe, the former Japanese prime minister was shot to death on Friday, National Public Radio tweeted that Abe was an “divisive archconservative”. NPR removed the tweet after it was criticized enough.
After that, they “fixed it” with another tweet labeling Abe an “ultranationalist.” The communists of North Korea and China disliked him so they used the word.
Fidel Castro was given a more warm welcome by NPR funded from the taxpayers. In their obituary, they simply called Castro a “Former Cuban leader.” Not a dictator. His personality was not “divisive”, nor “ultra-“. Castro is a man they found to be “very promising, brave, dedicated, intelligent”, enough to make one puke.
PBS broadcast a PBS report on the death of Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s tyrant. It compared him to Simon Bolivar or Jesus Christ in public opinion. You can listen to it below, or anywhere you prefer podcasts.
