The White House Should Know That History Has Already Judged Fidel Castro

Editor's Note: The following is based on Glenn's monologue from November 29, 2016.

I cannot take what people are saying about Fidel Castro. The White House won't judge the, quote, towering figure of Fidel Castro. I guess history is going to have to judge him.

Well, history has already judged him. I don't know what we're expecting to find out 100 years from now that we don't know about 1959, 1962, 1970, 1980, 1990. I'm not sure what historians are supposed to find that will make this man into a great man.

Castro took over Cuba in 1959. His right-hand man, you might have seen on the T-shirts or hats or posters around many Democratic headquarters and around college campuses everywhere. Che. They killed an awful lot of people. They promised an end to corruption. They said they were going to uphold the values of free speech and private property.

Instead, Castro imprisoned, tortured, and murdered thousands of people. In fact, he imprisoned and tortured political prisoners at a higher rate than Stalin did during his reign of great terror. We're all pretty clear on who Stalin is, aren't we?

How about Hitler? Fidel Castro murdered more Cubans in his first three years in power than Hitler murdered Germans in his first six.

Guevara, the main executioner, killed everyone who was in opposition -- journalists, poets, homosexuals, they were sent to labor camps. Others were just executed by the firing squad. Some of them, Che executed himself.

What is it that we're supposed to find out? Are we supposed to find out later that he took a country that was free, that was dynamic, and threw it into Third World poverty? Is that what we're supposed to find out?

Here's what historians will print 100 years from now, when we get far enough away from the people who are currently in charge of the world, when we get away from the dishonest journalists, when we get away from the dishonest media, the dishonest elite, the dishonest politicians, the professors, and the current crop of pseudo historians. No matter how many dictators die, there is always Hollywood, the media, the politician, and the educational system that will keep the killer's viewpoint alive in the heart of new dupes.

Authoritarianism is on the rise all throughout the world. It's happening everywhere. And it's happening in all shapes and all sizes. Fascism, communism, Islamists -- they're all dictators. They all will spell death to their people. And they all have one thing in common: social justice. You listen to all of them -- the fascists, the Islamists, the communists -- they all will claim social justice.

What they're really claiming is socialism, the philosophy of Karl Marx. That's the root of this evil.

RELATED: Communism: The Four-Part Series

It has been around with many different names for a very long time. Some of the early settlers here in America tried to do it. It ended in cannibalism. They did it in the name of God.

But Karl Marx really put a new and fresh and evil face on it. For anybody who is in school now or has graduated, anybody really under 40, you may not have learned this in school, but this is what World War II was really all about: the argument between national socialism and international socialism. The real push was either Russia or something like Germany, or Mussolini.

That's all it was about. And everyone in the world bought into it, except for Winston Churchill. He was the only staunch anti-socialist, anti-communist in World War II, which is why now, if you go over to the United Kingdom, 75 percent of those under 30 have no idea who he is. But you'll find a lot of those people wearing a Che T-shirt. You'll find a lot of people saying, "Wow, history will correct the wrongs of Fidel Castro. He was a great hero. Who is this Winston Churchill?"

You can see the slide. It's happening again. And it always happens the same way.

I spent my week, last week, reading about the end of the gold standard and the way the central banks rebalanced everything in the 1920s and '30s.

These people have not learned any lessons at all.

History does not repeat itself, but it certainly rhymes. And it's happening again. And we will go to war again.

The world will go to war, and I fear, millions more will die for the false choices of Marxism, fascist Marxism, international Marxism, national Marxism, Islamic Marxism.

I want you to understand: They're all the same. A national socialist is just as deadly as an international communist, as a Marxist Islamist is. It's the same ideology. Each are going to teach its followers that it's this group or the other group that's stopping the world from coming together in peace, love. You know, new Audubons, fair banking or the end of the great Satan. But it's the same ideology.

And those who killed all of the artists and poets are the ones that the new poets now extol as great freedom fighters. It's sickening.

Those who were tortured and gunned down by anti-capitalists have new anti-capitalists selling their murderous T-shirts, the Mao purses and the Che hats, all in the name of anti-capitalism.

Castro only lost his battle with time. That's what's so despicable. This murderer ran free, raped and pillaged an entire country and people, since 1959. And the world was muted.

Here's a guy who brought us closer to nuclear annihilation than any other human on the planet. And the press says we're just going to have to wait and see how history judges this tall revolutionary figure.

He should have received a bullet in the head. Unfortunately, God will have to pay him back for the suffering and the murder and the debauchery because the only battle he faced here was time. And in the time he lost his life, the ideas that brought his murder spree to fruition, Marxism has been taken off of life support.

And because of the media and the leftist politicians, and worse yet, those in our educational system, it's been taken off of life support. And Marxism has been sent back home, after seemingly making a full recovery.

Why are we celebrating Castro's battle? It was lost to time. The war is being lost.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
