Greenfield: The Death of the Left

The West didn’t defeat Communism; it held it at bay long enough for it to defeat itself. The Soviet Union and the People’s Republic of China crushed Communism more decisively than Goldwater could have ever dreamed of.

The embargo didn’t turn Cuba into a hellhole whose main tourism industry is inviting progressive Canadian pedophiles to rape its children. Castro did that with help from the dead guy on the red t-shirts.

“One of the greatest benefits of the revolution is that even our prostitutes are college graduates,” Castro told Oliver Stone. In real life, his prostitutes are lucky if they graduated from elementary school.

American admirers eager to get to Havana claim to be worried that Starbucks will ruin their Socialist paradise. What really worries them is that American businesses might give Cuban teens an economic alternative to sexually servicing decrepit leftists from Berkeley for $10 a night in the revolutionary version of Thailand where everyone is free, especially the political prisoners and raped children…

    Communism retreats bit by bit. What will we have to do to defeat Islam?
    Will Islam defeat itself in a similar fashion…through making people sick of it?

      It’s own decrepdness and degradation guarantees it’s demise.

        Failed culture.
        Nominally a civilization.

      • WalterBannon

        all that evil needs to do to succeed is convince good to sit back and wait for evil to fail on its own

      • Gettingby

        The overt decrepitude and degradation of western leaders guarantees
        our decline and demise at the hands of those they are to dense or cowardly to question let alone confront.

    • Zaba

      We need to hasten it’s demise and isolate it by ending muzlim immigration.

      • Blacksmith

        You have one word too many in your statement in my humble opinion, you can remove immigration.

    • WalterBannon

      we will have to nuke it, or die ourselves

  • Brett_McS

    “Cuba … a hellhole whose main tourism industry is inviting progressive Canadian pedophiles to rape its children”.


  • It’s hard to match Sultan Knish’s sarcasm. Cuba’s “main tourism industry is inviting progressive Canadian pedophiles to rape its children”. Maybe we should check the travel records of Ben Levin and the other perverts from OISE and TDSB.

      People I work with have gone to Cuba for winter vacations.
      It disgusted me.

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        The Shylock used to go to Cuba every winter…

  • Communism (and Islamism) are systems based not on reason or altruism but on madness and violence. It stands to reason that they peter out eventually.

    What is even more insane is that neither ideology is challenged to the point of defeat. It’s not normal for the starving nation of North Korea to have only one fat man. It is not normal for a socio-political system allegedly as perfect as Islamism to be poor and filled with ignorant and paranoid people.

    So why are these things tolerated?

    We have thrown out the values that made the West great. We have replaced them with nothing or with doubt. We lack the will to do what is necessary. Imperial Japan was defeated within six years of declaring war on it. The September 11th attacks were fourteen years ago and we are still prevaricating.

      That’s why IS has a silver lining.
      If they get big enough to threaten someone who matters then they will be dealt with.

      • The Saudis seem to be the only real opposition ISIS. Everyone else is big on “degrading” them without vaporising them.

        • Blacksmith

          Unfortunately the Saud’s are just as bad as isis, they are just sanctioned by the west and only promote and support terrorists not actively attempt to take over more themselves.

          • As has been discussed elsewhere, Saudi Arabia is what an ISIS state would look like.

          • Blacksmith

            In my dreams all the leftist are sent to live in Saudi Arabia or Syria with isis.

          • Those are nice dreams.

          • Blacksmith

            Compared to the nightmare of being awake in this current messed up world we live in they most certainly are…..

    Cuba’s “main tourism industry is inviting progressive Canadian pedophiles to rape its children”.

    I have been saying the same for years.

    If you know a middle-aged man that visits Cuba regularly, there is a very good chance that he is a sex tourist.
    The more often that they go, the more trust they build up with the
    ‘concierges’ in the hotels. These men are the pimps.

    Veradero is not the sex tourist destination, Havana and Matanza are the prime spots.

      No doubt in the Travel and Recreation section of the Toronto Star.

    I think we will find out in the next few years if Communism has ultimately won.

    If we are in a long term stagnant economy or in a depression and all get to share in the common misery of living in third world countries, whether those third world countries are in Africa, Europe or North America, Communism will have won.

  • Gary

    Remember the recent protest by the Governor of New York that told Public sector employees to cut-off any Business trips to Indiana because of the faux outrage over the Pizza reception after a gay wedding that the Memories Pizza didn’t want to cater???
    That same Democrat Governor is now going to Cuba to promote Business dealings and not a word from GLAAD or the Media over how Cuba jailed gays with AIDS to rot and die away from the tourists, plus there is NO gay marriage allowed in Cuba.

    Hillary and Obama had both defended traditional Marriage back in 2009 , the same year that the CEO from Mozilla had supported it but had got fired last year for that stance by the Brown-Shirts among the homofascists and the Gaystepo goons.

    Obama should researched what Che said about Blacks around 1960 because Ernesto said they were lazy N’s that burden society as unproductive . This is why Cuba does not allow any Blacks in the upper levels of Government , I’m not talking about Brown people but those of Afro decent which he detested.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    • Raymond Hietapakka

      Can Obama read?

  • bob e

    dan greenfield is really an israeli kommando .. i’ve asked him a few times to introduce himself to the super hot israeli model,
    bar rafaeli , but i don’t think he listens to me ..

    friend just returned from cuba & said other than a few main streets
    the entire place is a shithole. he’s over there whoring ..

    • UCSPanther

      I was on a class field trip last fall with some other Geology students and one of them mentioned vacationing in Cuba and described how run down it was. I told him that he more or less saw the end result of 50 years of communist tyranny.

      He did not clue in to what I was saying.

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        …there’s a scene in a travel documentary show, can’t remember the name, young runny- nose Englishman was host…anyhow, when he was in CUBA, he was in some mining district there buying some ore specimens from a group of 7-8 young punks, early 20’s…to see them all jump around, like monkeys, stepping on each other to compete for the ONE FREAKIN’ DOLLAR the limey held out was truly and sadly pathetic…

  • WalterBannon

    anyone who thinks communism or fascism is defeated has not been paying attention to current events…

  • UCSPanther

    “If its victory becomes permanent, a generation from now Cuban sex tourists with pesos will be visiting the Socialist enclaves of Berkeley or Boston for their child prostitution needs.”

    If that happens, it would be cruel irony through and through. Maybe San Francisco of the future will also be a favorite spot for foreign sex tourists who have “alternative inclinations” if you catch my meaning…

    • Brett_McS

      It is my understanding that there aren’t any children in San Francisco.

      • UCSPanther

        Maybe not, but some foreign creepers come to poorer nations looking to take advantage of desperate adults as well…

  • Minicapt

    Canadians, doing the jobs Americans can’t. More probably, facilitating the Americans.


  • David Murrell

    Dan Greenfield is one of the best conservative writers out there. But his thesis is at best partially true. It is true that places like Venezuela tend to self-destruct, and we can concede that territory held by the Islamic State is unstable, since the IS is a neo-Nazi movement (taking territory by force; genocide against non-Muslims). But (1) there are side-problems confronting the West (e.g., the mass migration to Europe, (2) Islamist terrorism against the West, and (3) Islamic migration to North America. It is clear that Obama-styled left-wing governments will not confront the above, let aloe support the ongoing difficulties.

    We are in a World War II scenario against Islam. If the West fails, under left-wing leadership, we will all be destroyed. So we need the Winston Churchills to rise up to lead, for the democracies to survive. This is missing in Greenfield’s essay..

    • Brett_McS

      He hammers those other points pretty solidly. Can’t write the same thing every week.
