Depends on your perspective. They are real posts. I can see them. They exist.
However, they are satire and not made by Hillary and company.

I'm not playing devils advocate here, but this seems kinda biased
Well, he was.
While I also hate Reagan, I do wish people would stop shitting all over him for supporting the Contras. It was one of his few morally justified actions in Latin America.
Recent histories (written by liberals, no less) suggest that the prevailing perception of the Contras as right wing counterrevolutionaries and holdovers of Somoza's National Guard are inaccurate, and don't do the group justice. The Sandinistas were absolutely awful for Nicaragua, particularly the traditionally Catholic, indigenous peasants of the Nicaraguan highlands, destroying livelihoods through the imposition of price controls, and persecuting the people for their religious beliefs, which had no place in the Sandinista's new Marxist society. Hence, by 1985-6, the Contras drew on broad support from all segments of the Nicaraguan populace, many of whom, like Adolfo Calero, the Chamorros, Brooklyn Riveria and Eden Pastora, had fought against Somoza in '79, only to realize that they had replaced one dictator with another.
TL;DR: Historical scholarship on the Contras is changing. They weren't the evil counterrevolutionaries they were portrayed as.
The issue is the United States overthrowing a democratically elected government in the name of profits for their corporations.
But the Sandinistas were never truly a democratically elected force. They came to power after a revolution against Somoza, who was a dictator, and then immediately betrayed the principles of the revolution by seizing power for themselves and their cronies, and implementing a one party state.
They followed the example of Lenin and Castro. They set up a transition state, something that I, and many leftists, have some gripes with, in order to smash any counterrevolutionary action still remaining, and ensure stability, peace, and everyone has what they need as the society turns socialist. Lenin fucked it up when he didn't dissolve the state, although Leninists would argue that he had serious misgivings about dropping his guard due to foreign intervention by capitalist nations during the Russian Civil War.
