I was at the mall over the weekend and saw a young couple wearing matching Che Guevara t-shirts. I hesitated for a moment, but decided to ask them why they idolized this man…here was the woman’s response, “he is a symbol for all Latinos that we should fight for our rights and freedoms…and anyone who is oppressed can make a difference”. I was irritated at her response but admired her passion for a man she knew nothing about. The fact is that Che Guevara was not oppressed or poor. He was a medical doctor, having originally trained to become a doctor at the University of Buenos Aires.
It is strange to me that today’s generation can idolize a man best known as a cold-blooded murderer; a man with no regard for human life and an infinite hatred towards people; something he preached time and time again. This woman I talked to at the mall was obviously ignorant to historical facts, as are most liberals.
“Hatred is an element of struggle; relentless hatred of the enemy that impels us over and beyond the natural limitations of man and transforms us into effective, violent, selective, and cold killing machines. Our soldiers must be thus; a people without hatred cannot vanquish a brutal enemy.” - Source
It’s not just today’s generation that’s ignorant and uninformed. Growing up in East San Jose in the early 1990s, I saw Che’s ugly mug quite often; and, for the most part, these people (some were my friends) knew exactly what they were doing and the message they were sending: they agreed with what Che stood for – hate. This may shock some of you overly emotional liberals so get out the kleenex. This man that you celebrate, tattoo on your abdomens, and clothe on your bodies was a murderer and admits to killing or ordering the deaths of approximately 2000 people directly; and he was indirectly responsible for countless other deaths. He regarded any dissent to the revolution as grounds for murder. Here is another quote from Che as he continued to preach his religion of hate to some guerilla thugs in Angola:
“Blind hate against the enemy creates a forceful impulse that cracks the boundaries of natural human limitations, transforming the soldier into an effective, selective and cold killing machine. A people without hate cannot triumph against the adversary”
While this communist punk was responsible for the deaths of only a few thousand people; he was of course not on the same level as Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Kim. But then again, they don’t have t-shirts with their portraits on them so maybe he was on the same level. Nonetheless, Che got dealt with in Bolivia before he had a chance to reach his claim to fame by killing millions of people.
The moral of the story is this. Che Guevara was a murderer, a coward, an idiot; and a communist punk a$$ motherslucker…..and anyone who idolizes this piece of crap deserves to get deleted.
Again, I tell you that friends should not let friends wear Che Guevara t-shirts. Peace!
