Scott Walker Castro tweetA Cuban-born anti-communist activist says Wisconsin's governor is right to point out that his Democratic opponent is an unapologetic apologist for Cuba's longtime communist dictator. 

Gov. Scott Walker, who is seeking a third term this year, is hated by the far-left in the Badger State, where he reformed public unions and defeated a recall election despite violence from unions and communist groups.

Among the Republican governor's gubernatorial opponents is Paul Soglin, the current mayor of Madison.

Soglin, 72, is also known for his left-wing adoration of Fidel Castro that dates back to 1975, when the then-mayor of Madison gave Castro a key to the city.

Scott Walker 3He has also travelled three times to the island nation,  where basic freedoms such as the press and religious expression, and property ownership, are restricted.  He personally met Castro during two of those visits.

In a story about the Walker-Soglin feud, The Associated Press reports that Walker used Twitter (see image above) to show an image of Soglin to which Soglin responded that he was working on a trade deal for dairy equipment.

Soglin is one of several Democrats in a crowded primary, the AP also reports.  

Humberto Fontova, who fled the Castro regime in 1961, suggests that the mayor would have never welcomed apartheid apologist P.W. Botha, South Africa's former prime minister, due to racial discrimination in that country.

"And yet [Soglin's] going out of his way," says Fontova, "to welcome and to praise the founder of a regime that murdered more political prisoners in his first three years in power than Hitler's regime murdered in its first six."
