It Takes One to Know One:  Castro Sees Tea Party as “Facism”

In the ultimate pot calling the kettle black, former Cuban dictator and President Fidel Castro recognized the Tea Party but not in very favorable terms. 

While speaking to the only audience he seems to be able to get, a group of students, Castro labeled the Tea Party as the “extreme right” and accused them of leading the U.S. toward “fascism”.  He appears clearly bothered by the U.S. heading toward fascism but not his country ruled by a communist dictator.
