In the midst of liberal journalists praising Fidel Castro it is refreshing to hear a member of the media tell the truth about the murderous dictator. Fox News contributor and Washington Times columnist Mercedes Schlapp told the story of how her father and his compatriots were treated in Castro’s Cuba on the November 28, 2016 edition of FBN’s Varney & Company: “The military and the regime took over my father’s businesses, took over his home. My father stood up against the regime and he was thrown into jail for six years. He was a political prisoner for speaking up against the Castro regime. He saw many of his friends die, they were executed by a firing squad.”
