Fidel Castro said he was going to Hell – and the nature of evil

What is it with Marxists and Hell?

Saul Alinsky, Obama’s mentor in community organizing agitprop, so admired Lucifer, who became Satan, that he dedicated his book, Rules for Radicals, to Lucifer.

Alinsky so admired Lucifer/Satan, he wanted to join the demon in Hell. (See “Obama’s Mentor, Saul Alinsky, was a Luciferian”)

In a 1972 Playboy magazine interview, Alinsky professed agnosticism about the existence of God, but said that “whenever anyone asks me my religion, I always say—and always will say— Jewish.” The Playboy interviewer then asked Alinsky if he believed in “any kind of afterlife,” to which Alinsky said:

” . . . if there is an afterlife . . . I will unreservedly choose to go to hell . . . . Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I’ve been with the have-nots. Over here, if you’re a have-not, you’re short of dough. If you’re a have-not in hell, you’re short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I’ll start organizing the have-nots over there. They’re my kind of people.

Clearly, Alinsky knew Hell is, well, hellish, full of bad wicked people who are “short of virtue” — wicked being the antonym or opposite of virtuous. Despite that, he chose Hell because bad wicked people were his “kind of people”.

Another Marxist also prefers Hell — Fidel Castro, Cuba’s longtime dictator who finally died on November 25, 2016 at the ripe old age of 90.

In an interview with Paris Match‘s Jean-Luc Mano in Havana on October 27, 1994, Castro said he was going to Hell. From an FBIS (Foreign Broadcast Information Service) translation of the interview published on lanic:

It is two in the morning. A final word of farewell. [Fidel Castro said] “You know, I’ll go to hell, and I know the heat will be unbearable, but it will be less painful than having expected so much from heaven, which never kept its promises… And also, when I arrive, I will meet Marx, Engels, Lenin… And I will meet you too, as capitalists also go to hell, you know. Especially when they like to enjoy life!”

Like Alinsky, Castro too recognized that Hell would be hellish — “I know the heat will be unbearable”. And yet, like Alinsky, Castro preferred Hell to Heaven. To top it off, Castro blamed Heaven for his going to Hell because “heaven . . . never kept its promises” (whatever that means).

The Paris Match interview also revealed the ridiculous mental contortions Castro took in refusing to be criticized and to be found wanting in any way. Interviewer Mano asked Castro about the Cuban government’s economic failures. Castro answered:

“Cuba cannot be judged in this way. The Revolution includes some tremendous achievements.”

Mano then pushed further and asked about political prisoners. Castro airily replied:

“There are none in Cuba. It is a matter of philosophy. A counterrevolutionary in prison is not a political prisoner.”

In other words, there are no political prisoners in Cuba because of a linguistic trick — Fidel Castro simply refused to call people imprisoned for their political dissent “political prisoners”. What a neat trick! Henceforth, we should tell the world there’s no crime in America because we don’t call crimes “crimes”!

Back to Saul Alinsky, Fidel Castro, and Hell . . . .

Are you as nonplussed as I am that Alinsky and Castro actually preferred Hell, well knowing it would be hellish?

The late Fr. Malachi Martin, in his 1976 book on exorcism, Hostage To The Devil, noted that we instinctively react to evil and evil people with revulsion, and that our repugnance serves a protective function because, feeling repelled by evil people, we naturally seek to avoid them.

By the same reasoning, the opposite must also be true — evil people must also find goodness and good people repugnant.

And so, a simple explanation for why Alinsky and Castro preferred Hell to Heaven is that they are thoroughly evil and prefer to be with Satan and other evil people in Hell. Finding goodness repellent, Alinsky and Castro do not want to be with God, the angels and saints in Heaven. For them, Heaven would be hell.

By the way, the story that Trump talked Obama out of attending Castro’s funeral is a hoax. Shame on sites like The Last Line of Defense (TLLoD) for reporting it as truth. The embedded link to TLLoD‘s supposed AP source doesn’t work. I searched the AP and found AP made no such report. Conveniently, TLLoD has closed that post to comments, so I can’t even write this as a comment there.

It’s sites like The Last Line of Defense that lends fuel to MSM’s — especially the despicable Washington Post — malicious characterization of Alternative Media as “fake news”.

The Left’s playbook: Satanist Saul Alinsky’s 13 rules for political warfare

Barack Obama began his political career by being a “community organizer” in Chicago. After that, his political rise was dizzying — from the Illinois state legislature to the U.S. Senate, and then to the White House.

Saul Alinsky

Saul Alinsky (1909-1972), the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, wrote the book on community organizing and, as such, is the guru of all “community organizers” — a deceptively innocuous term for what Marxists used to call “agitprop” or agitators-propagandists.

Alinsky was not the first to realize that successful Marxist revolutions depend on organizational prowess, but he was the first to write a “how to” organizational manual for aspiring Marxist revolutionaries in the United States — the now famous Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals (1971).

Alinsky’s ideas have been used by the Left in inner cities and college campuses. Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis at Wellesley College was on Alinsky. So influential is Alinsky that Time magazine once wrote that “American democracy is being altered by Alinsky’s ideas.” Even conservative author William F. Buckley said Alinsky was “very close to being an organizational genius.”

Alinsky biographer Sanford Horwitt claims that not only did Obama follow Alinsky’s teachings as a Chicago-based community organizer, Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign was influenced by those teachings.

Alinsky’s rules are also wielded by Internet trolls. Conservatives, therefore, should thoroughly acquaint ourselves with those rules, so that we can quickly recognize an Alinskyite, identify the tactic s/he is using against us and, even better, use those tactics against them. Here’s a brief summary of the rules (h/t The Union News):

Alinsky’s 13 Rules for the Left:

1. Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.

2. Never go outside the experience of your people.

3. Whenever possible, go outside of the experience of the enemy.

4. Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.

5. Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.

6. A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.

7. A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.

8. Keep the pressure on with different tactics and actions, and utilize all events of the period for your purpose.

9. The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

10. The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

11. If you push a negative hard and deep enough, it will break through into its counterside.

12. The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

13. Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

My experience from 5 years of daily blogging is that the trolls who come onto FOTM typically resort to Alinsky Rules #4 and #5.

Christians must watch out for #4. Leftist trolls deploy it against Christians by invoking OUT OF CONTEXT Jesus’ injunction to “judge not,” as if Christ our Lord actually means for us not to distinguish right from wrong. On the contrary, He abhors the “lukewarm” — the fence-sitters who stand for nothing, being neither hot nor cold. (See “Why we must admonish the wicked“)

It should give us pause to know that Alinsky was an admirer of Lucifer — the rebel angel so full of pride that he thought himself to be “as God,” who Jesus said “fell as lightning” and so became Satan. To begin with, Alinsky dedicated his book, Rules for Radicals, to Lucifer, aka the Devil:

There’s more.

Alinsky so admired Lucifer he wanted to join Satan in Hell.

In 1972, Playboy magazine did an interview with Saul Alinsky. Toward the end of the long interview, Alinsky was asked about death and the afterlife. Although Alinsky professed agnosticism about the existence of God, he said he was brought up by orthodox Jews and considered himself to be a devout Jew until the age of 12, after which he “went through some pretty rapid withdrawal symptoms and kicked the habit.” Nevertheless, he told Playboy, “But I’ll tell you one thing about religious identity, whenever anyone asks me my religion, I always say—and always will say— Jewish.”

The Playboy interviewer then asked Alinsky: “Do you believe in any kind of afterlife?” This was Alinsky’s response:

“ALINSKY: Sometimes it seems to me that the question people should ask is not “Is there life after death?” but “Is there life after birth?” I don’t know whether there’s anything after this or not. I haven’t seen the evidence one way or the other and I don’t think anybody else has either. But I do know that man’s obsession with the question comes out of his stubborn refusal to face up to his own mortality. Let’s say that if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell.

PLAYBOY: Why?

ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I’ve been with the have-nots. Over here, if you’re a have-not, you’re short of dough. If you’re a have-not in hell, you’re short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I’ll start organizing the have-nots over there.

PLAYBOY: Why them?

ALINSKY: They’re my kind of people.

Saul Alinsky died a few months after the interview, on June 12, 1972, and no doubt got his wish. See also:
