Che Guevara, T-Shirt Salesman To The Tards

Che Guevara was a cowardly murderer, and those walking around the US with his stinking, bearded countenance adorning their apparel are ignorant fools.

I can understand why he is a hero in Latin America, where the rich dump all over the poor and call it capitalism and democracy. But here in America--the most egalitarian and upwardly mobile society in the world--the most famous t-shirt salesman in the world is a mark of ignorance.

A Che logo screams "I am blissfully ignorant of history and I despise the capitalist freedom that brought me this gucci bag and these $200 Raybans."

What are these people making a statement against? Our nation having the richest, fattest poor people in the world? Government-subsidized higher education? Too many air conditioners and iPods?

Che Murdered Cuban Campesinos
Humberto Fontova writes brilliantly of the contrast between the butcher from Rosario and one particular woman who resisted his persecutions. Zoila Aguila was a brave Cuban campesina who took to the hills of Escambray and fought the Castro gang and their soviet masters for a year, until they finally captured and imprisoned her.

Hollywood produces hagiographic paeons to this homicidal maniac from Argentina, while real heroines like Zoila Aguila go unsung because nobody pinched her butt in a north country coal mine or she didn't blow the whistle on an evil corporation run by greedy white men. You can read this Cuban's short article at

typical leftard behavior my friend!!

With all of the leftard morons in the Obama administration, who proudly proclaim their love and admiration for Che, Castro, Mao, Stalin, you can bet that the sale of Che T-Shirts and posters will increase.

Even the poorest here in America don't realize just how good they have it.

Great post Silverfiddle. I have noticed this disconnect in our society, also. I am astounded that anyone could confuse socialism, or big government with freedom. I am even more astounded that someone would celebrate it-- especially, those "someones" claiming altruism at the hands of tyranny.

Here is a fabulous article about a 2008 movie made to celebrate Che Guavara:

Hollywood Celebrates Che Guevara
But it makes no films about the Cuban resistance movement.

The article explains how the lead actor in the movie, "Benicio Del Toro is not a stand-up comic, but he seemed to be playing one earlier this month when he said he found the role of Cuban Revolution hero Ernesto Guevara, in the new film 'Che,' like Jesus Christ."

The article goes on to explains what Che's result was on Cuba,
"It is a slave plantation, where a handful of wealthy white men impose their 'morality' on the masses, most of whom are black and who suffer unspeakable privation with zero civil liberties."

The article also introduces other TRUE heros of "the ongoing resistance in Cuba against the Castro dictatorship," such as Mary Anastasia O'Grady and "Thirty-two-year-old blogger Yoani Sánchez has been warned to keep quiet, but she still chronicles the ridiculousness of Che economics, giving a voice to ordinary Cubans who live lives of desperation. The Ladies in White -- wives, sisters and mothers of prisoners of conscience -- still walk quietly in Havana on Sundays. Rock bands mock the old dictator."

The article ends with, "This is the wonder of the revolution: Fifty years of state terror hasn't silenced the resistance. Maybe one day Hollywood will make a film about it."

I am proud to say that this article lists women as the heros of the ongoing reistance, just like you.

Thanks, Silverfiddle.

Che’s “CRIMES” were

~ Overthrowing a brutal U$ backed dictator allied with the Mafia (Batista)

~ Stopping American companies from owning 70 % of the arable land in Cuba

~ Teaching peasants to read, by bringing the Cuban literacy rate from 60 to 97 %

~ Having the 200 or so War Criminals who killed 20,000 Cubans for Batista shot against a wall

~ Speaking out against South African Apartheid to the UN in 1964

~ Fighting white mercenaries in the African Congo with an all black army

~ Speaking out against U$ and eventually USSR Imperialism while demanding that the poor of the world be allowed to live a life of dignity

Explaining CHE-HATRED:

There are a plethora of reactionary middle class capitalist-loving douchebags, who were born on 3rd base and think they hit a triple — who like to talk internet smack in Mom’s basement about a revolutionary who’s been dead for 40 + years. How post-modern.

These clowns wouldn’t know the poverty that Che experienced during his travels through South America if it kicked them in their capri pants. Che was radicalized by seeing US Imperialism up close in Guatemala – you know when Uncle Sam & United Fruit decided to incinerate a few thousand brown people so American’s could save 20 cents on their bananas.

Do any of the Che-haters know anything about the U.S.-backed dictatorship of Batista and the Mafia which propped him up? The oligarchs who alongside the mafia turned Cuba into a Yanqui whorehouse, while killing 20,000 Cubans? Che believed in cold justice – because he saw injustice up close.

Meanwhile, the hardest challenge for the anti-Che vapid turds in the next 6 months will probably be the life or death decision of doritos or cheetos while playing their Xbox.

The first synonym for “Terrorism” is —> “American Foreign Policy”

“We must bear in mind that imperialism is a world system, the last stage of capitalism — and it must be defeated in a world confrontation. We must eliminate the foundations of imperialism: our oppressed nations, from where they extract capitals, raw materials, technicians and cheap labor, and to which they export new capitals — instruments of domination — arms and all kinds of articles; thus submerging us in an absolute dependance.” — Che Guevara

All right! We snagged a Latte Leftist!

Where'd you do your Latin American studies? The University of Taco Bell?

Unless you are typing your ignorant missives from Cuba or some other communist paradise, you are a pathetic loser who has not the courage of your convictions.

Free-Market Capitalism works everywhere it is tried, socialism has always failed.

You are exactly who this post is about. You feed on the fruits of capitalism and curse the system with a full mouth and belly.

El Che was a psychopath with a blood lust, and he was stupid to boot.

The Bolivian campesinos he was trying to "help" must not have appreciated it since they dropped a dime on his sorry, stinking ass.

A fittingly ignominious end for a horrible human being. You idolize El Che? Then get off your ass and follow in his footsteps, after all, when he left Cuba after slaughtering thousands, he told Fidel, "Yo no soy revolucionario de escritorio."

Dear anonymous.
So you are saying that living in poverty justifies mass murdering, torturing and oppressing the freedom of a country? Che Guevara used voilence to transfer power from one tyrant to another.

Regardless of what Americans think, I believe the true concern should be what Cubans think.
A simple web search "do cubans support castro and che guevara?":

The Real Che Guevara via
"Che Guevara was an international terrorist and mass murderer.

During his vicious campaigns to impose communism on countries throughout Latin America, che Guevara trained and motivated the Castro regime's firing squads that executed thousands of men, women and children."

The Havana Journal
"You know nothing of Cuba except what you have read in leftist books.You certainly have not been to Cuba except maybe as a tourist !!!Castro�s Cuba is an APARTHEID state "

a Compilation of CHE GUEVARA in the news.
"A Cuban prosecutor of the time who quickly defected in horror and disgust named Jose Vilasuso estimates that Che signed 400 death warrants the first few months of his command in La Cabana. A Basque priest named Iaki de Aspiazu, who was often on hand to perform confessions and last rites, says Che personally ordered 700 executions by firing squad during the period. Cuban journalist Luis Ortega, who knew Che as early as 1954, writes in his book Yo Soy El Che! that Guevara sent 1,897 men to the firing squad."

Yes, Cubans (10% of which currently live in the US)live with the dignity of torture, arbitrary imprisonment, unfair trials, and extrajudicial executions.

Cubans live with the dignity of a government that represses nearly all forms of political dissent (Human Rights Watch).

Cubans live with the dignity of being denied the rights of free expression, association, assembly, privacy, movement, and due process.

Cubans live with the dignity of being denied computers and internet access unless they are 'favored', in which case they are monitored.

Cubans live with the dignity of the second largest prison population of journalists, second only to the Peoples Republic of China.

Cubans live with the dignity of 40 maximum security prisons, 30 prisons, and 200 work camps.

Cubans live with the dignity of an 80% literacy rate from an educational system based on marxist ideology that keeps a file on "revolutionary integrity" that follows the student for life.

Cubans enjoy the dignity of a $16.70/month average salary and $9 a month pension if retired.

Cubans enjoy the dignity of having traded a small but very wealthy class of landowners and government officials and large numbers of impoverished peasants and poorly paid urban workers for the dignity of a small but very wealthy class of party officials and larger numbers of impoverished peasants and poorly paid urban workers.

Bravo Che!

Finn and Journalizer: People like Anon (too cowardly or lazy to even say who he is) aren't even worth wasting time on. He's never been anywhere and has never met a Cuban. He read the Howard Zinn book and now he's an expert...
