Justin Trudeau, son of Fidel Castro?

For all I know, it isn’t true. Then again, it may be true. But, if it is true, it explains a lot.

You may know that Fidel Castro’s son, aka Fidelito, committed suicide last week. In his suicide note he explained that he had been tormented throughout his life by his father’s constant praise for his half-brother Justin Trudeau.

Amid a wide-ranging barrage of complaints, the note suggests Fidelito was angry with his late father, the revolutionary Cuban dictator. Fidelito wrote that his father, Fidel Castro, was “always comparing me unfavorably with Justin” and “dismissing my achievements in comparison to his success in Canada.

But what was I to do? I am Cuban. My brother is Canadian. If he was born and raised in Cuba, he would have lived in our father’s shadow forever just like me.”

While Justin Trudeau is famously known as the son of Canada’s liberal former Prime Minister, Pierre Trudeau, comparison images of Pierre, Justin and Fidel suggest there may be something to the Cuban claims.

In these pictures, we find Justin between Pierre Trudeau and Fidel Castro. Which pair looks more like father and son.



Here is  Margaret Trudeau, with her baby Justin, introducing him to Castro.


Call it food for thought.

I'm not even sure if this is good enough for "Fake news", but for getting attention it's worthy as clickbait.

YourNewsWire (styled as YourNewsWire.com[1]) is a Los Angeles-based clickbait fake news website known for disseminating conspiracy theories and misleading information, contrary to its claimed motto (“News. Truth. Unfiltered”).

I suppose its good to know they do fact checking, and have some standards.
Adl-Tabatabai does have some regard for facts. As editor, he says he spends around 30 minutes fact-checking all the stories he publishes. “If a story is particularly complex it can take a lot longer.” ... They tend to be paid commission, so the more clicks a story gets, the more cash the site generates — thank you Google! He makes an OK living, he says, but the overheads are high and it’s all a bit harder since people started to worry about fake news.

What was the last story he rejected? He thinks about this one for a while. “There was a story about Hillary Clinton dying in hospital and having a body double and here’s the proof ... I considered it. People like that stuff. We’d covered a lot of her illness. But it just felt a bit cheap and nasty and there was no real merit to it.”

Glad you like the story. It's not the source, it's the images. Which man looks like JT's father? Some people will not find it amusing, but some people do not have a sense of humor either.

It's easy to have a sense of humor about people you don't like until you find out how much crap people want to believe. The Golden Showers were also funny enough for Colbert, but helps divide our country into warring factions and we still don't know how that's going to end.

Incidentally, I see Baxter Dmitry didn't need much time to research the story. There's tons on the web, but one "minor"? error seems to be Castro holding a baby was from 1976, while Justine was born in 1971, so it was apparently his younger brother Michel in the picture.

I also see Justin has at least 2 brothers, also Alexandre. For all we know Castro was the father of all of them. Does Justin really look different among them? Someone should continue this vital research with carefully crafted pictures as evidence.

Ares was confused by the first paragraph in your post. Big words.

Stuart Schneiderman said...

Nothing new there... sorry to find out that Justin is not in the pic... but his mother is surely very close to Castro. Besides, the validity of the story, if it is valid, lies in the uncanny resemblance between JT and FC.

Okay, here's some humor, a bit of a stretch at the end, but a similar subject...
In ancient Greece Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom. One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance who ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students?"

"Wait a moment," Socrates replied. "Before you tell me I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Test of Three."

"Test of Three?"

Socrates continued. "Before you talk to me about my student let's take a moment to test what you're going to say. The first test is Truth. Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?"

No," the man said, "actually I just heard about It."

"All right," said Socrates. "So you don't really know if it's true or not. Now let's try the second test, the test of Kindness. Is what you are about to tell me about my student something kind?"

"No, on the contrary..."

"So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him even though you're not certain it's true?"

The man shrugged, a little embarrassed.

Socrates continued. "You may still pass though, because there is a third test - the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell me about my student going to be useful to me?"

"No, not really."

"Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither True nor Kind nor even Useful, why tell it to me at all?"

The man was defeated and ashamed. This is the reason Socrates was a great philosopher and held in such high esteem. It also explains why he never found out that Plato was banging his wife.

He does not look like his brothers. But they do look like his father

A couple points about this. In the late 60s, according to a friend who lived in Vancouver at the time it was common knowledge that Margaret Sinclair who became Trudeau was....the town bike. I've stated before that there seems to be a causal relationship between promiscuity and bi-polar behaviour. Especially when you use hard drugs, which she did. In one of her biographies, it stated the Trudeau family gets a "lifetime" supply of Cuban cigars. Fidel showing his good will. The final point is that the visit of Trudeau Sr. to Cuba didn't coincide with the birth date of Trudeau - but I never looked into that point in detail.

I noticed this article today


Which says the note has not been independently verified or confirmed by "state" media. Now it doesn't say the note doesn't exist or the content isn't accurate.
And "experts " state the visit couldn't have gone unnoticed. Glad to see the Associated Press leading the war for truth!
