I’m Surprised the Amoral Jerks at Mercedes-Benz Don’t Use Hitler’s Image to Promote Cars

International Liberty

I hope my car doesn’t break down anytime soon. I’ve already sworn I will never buy a car from General Motors or Chrysler, and now I have to add Mercedes-Benz to my personal boycott list.

Mercedes Spokesman Glorifies Totalitarian Murderer

Maybe I’m being naively dogmatic, but I refuse to patronize a company that uses a mass murdering communist and racist like Che Guevera as a marketing ploy.

It’s not like I would ever spend a lot of money for a car anyhow, but even if somebody deposits $10 million in my bank account, you can rest assured that I won’t be cruising around town in the MB Guevera C230, the MB Hitler E350, or the MB Mao GL450.

Michael Gonzalez of the Heritage Foundation says it much better than I can.

There’s something about Che Guevara that convinces older European men that they will become cooler through association with his “brand.” We saw that again yesterday when Mercedes-Benz Chairman Dieter Zetsche launched a new car under a banner picture of Guevara. …Che Guevara, not to put too fine a point on it, was a psychopath whose sadistic lust for blood was not easily quenched. He killed for pleasure. He had, moreover, little time for youthful rebellion and none at all for individualism. Lastly, Che Guevara was a racist who specifically held blacks in contempt. I think about this often when I see deluded young African-Americans wearing a t-shirt with his likeness. But a German born a handful of years after 1945 really ought to have known better. Much has been written about how Guevara executed men and boys in prison in the early revolutionary years in Cuba, disposing of such bourgeois niceties as trials. …Speaking of blacks he said: “The ***** is indolent and lazy, and spends his money on frivolities, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent.” Yes, quite a model that Che Guevara. You’d buy a car from him, wouldn’t you? What will Mercedes-Benz come up with next? The Baader-Mienhof super coupe?

Almost exactly one year ago, the Baltimore Symphony used the Hammer and Sickle emblem of the Soviet Union to promote an event. That was disgusting, but at least the event involved the work of a Soviet-era composer.

Mercedes-Benz, by contrast, is using the image Che Guevera because the amoral executives of the company think this will help sell cars to an amoral public.

Please don’t buy anything from a company with that cavalier attitude about human decency.

  1. Angry Patriot

    No different than the kids in L.A. seen wearing Charles Mansion T-shirts.

    It simply illustrates their ignorance.

  2. We can thank the Dept of Education and their progressive teaching for this.

  3. DRAGON, I SPECIFICALLY REMEMBER TAKING COURSES IN HIGH SCHOOL CALLED “CIVICS”, WHICH COVERED BASIC ECONOMY INFRASTRUCTURE, AND WORLD HISTORY WHICH COVERED THE HOLOCAUST OF THE NAZIS, THE BAY OF PIGS, ISRAEL BECOMING A NATION , AND SO ON. I GUESS THEY WANT TO “PROGRESSIVELY” DISPOSE OF THE REAL ITEMS AND REPLACE THEM WITH WHATEVER THEY DESIRE. AS FOR MUY CHILDREN, WE GO TO YARD SALES AND FLEA MARKETS LOOKING FOR AUTHENTIC HISTORY BOOKS AND THE LIKE. YOU CAN’T EVEN GET THE REAL STUFF IN A LIBRARY ANYMORE.

    • That’s because Republicans want to make deals with Democrats and Democrats are Socialist/Progressive and don’t care what people think of them. Well until an election comes around.
