Book: Castro Traveled With Personal Blood Donors
Newser ^ | May 24, 2014 | John Johnson

"He always traveled with 10 bodyguards, and two of them had to have his blood type in case he needed an emergency transfusion. Castro didn't trust stored blood."

(snip)

"Contrary to what he has always said, Fidel has never renounced capitalist comforts or chosen to live in austerity," writes Sanchez. "Au contraire, his mode de vie is that of a capitalist without any kind of limit. He has never considered that he is obliged by his speech to follow the austere lifestyle of a good revolutionary."

John Barrymore let Anthony Quinn hang out with his crowd because they were the same blood type.

He's a vampire?

That could explain why he's still undead.

Also his appeal to adolescents.

History has shown that it takes a lot of blood to sustain tyrants.

CASTRO ALSO traveled with his own chickens. My mother owned a bar and one of the patrons bet her 10 bucks she couldn`t get to talk to Castro on the phone while he was in NY at a UN meeting. She found out the hotel he was staying, called it, got Raul on the phone. He told her that Fidel couldn`t talk coz they were getting the live chickens ready for dinner. True story. She won her 10 bucks.

Wait a minute. You mean Castro didn't live by example by eating out of garbage cans and living on government rations like the masses?

Is Socialism a fairytale then? (Begins crying)

Why, YES! It IS a big fairy tale. All these M/Fers lived high on the hog while the people suffered. The best example today is the NORK DORK. Life is good unless you are someone else.

The book was published in France, and is not listed on the US Amazon site.

People also wondered if he or some of those in his entourage kept the chickens for use in santeria rituals.

Just a minor oversight. I’m sure Amazon will have it listed really soon. /s

But the Clinton and Obama have to travel with their own venomous snakes for backup.

Castro was always a Communist in name only. His heroes were Hitler and Alexander the Great, not Lenin and Stalin. Raul and Che were the true Communists, and Raul preferred Chinese Communism. The Soviets didn’t like Castro and he didn’t like them, but they had common enemies. He would have loved to have seen the US and the Soviet Union totally destroy each other. I’m sure he had dreams of stepping in and ruling what would have been left of the world.

Castro and Che in exile.

It didn't take them long after this to figure out that the corrupt morons in the western media loved communist revolutionaries.
