“I know that Fidel Castro has done some good things for the world.”
This is a horrifying example of just how indoctrinated some students become by left wing sentiments on college campuses. When asked who is worse, Fidel Castro or Donald Trump, many of these students struggle to answer and some of them even defend Castro.
Castro has a decades long record and Trump hasn’t even been sworn in yet but that doesn’t seem to be an issue.

VIDEO: AU students prefer Castro over Trump
Fidel Castro’s recent death evoked conflicting assessments of his legacy from world leaders, but college students are no more prepared than prime ministers to justify their support for the Cuban dictator.
President-Elect Donald Trump, for example, referred to Castro as a “brutal dictator,” whereas Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called him a “remarkable leader.”
In order to gauge millennial feelings on the passing of the authoritarian Cuban leader, Campus Reform asked students at American University which political figure they viewed more favorably: Castro or Trump.
While several students identified the repressive elements of Castro’s regime, such as jailing and murdering his political opponents, few were willing to say that this made them view him less favorably than Donald Trump.
“I mean, right now I don’t think Donald Trump is very good, and I know that Fidel Castro has done some good things for the world so I’d say he’s proven himself at least in the long term to be more favorable,” one student opined after referencing Castro’s health care reforms in Cuba.
Another student borrowed language from Trudeau, calling Castro a “remarkable leader” and claiming that his regime “made possibilities for the Cuban people nearly endless.”

Given that kind of logic, is it any wonder that this happened on the same campus?
Trump-Protesting Students Burn Flags at American University
Hundreds of students at American University gathered on campus to protest Donald Trump’s presidential victory and used matches and lighters to torch several American flags.
The group chanted “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” and waved signs reading “Black Lives Matter,” “Stand up to racism!” and “Stand against anti-Muslim bigotry,” the university’s student newspaper The Eagle reported.
“This is a representation of America! We are going down in flames!” one protestor shouted.
American University spokeswoman Camille Lepre said the school supports the “free expression of views on all sides of the political spectrum.”
Somehow, I don’t think the “other side” is getting much representation at American U.
