51th Anniversary of Che Guevara’s Death

The real story of a sadistic charlatan and mass executioner.

Fifty-one years-ago this week, Ernesto “Che” Guevara got a major dose of his own medicine. Without trial, he was declared a murderer, stood against a wall, and shot. If the saying “What goes around comes around” ever fit, it’s here.

“When you saw the beaming look on Che’s face as his victims were tied to the stake and blasted apart by the firing squad,” said a former Cuban political prisoner to this writer, “you saw there was something seriously, seriously wrong with Che Guevara.”

As commander of the La Cabana execution yard, Che often shattered the skull of the condemned man (or boy) by firing the coup de grace himself. When other duties tore him away from his beloved execution yard, he consoled himself by viewing the slaughter. Che’s second-story office in La Cabana had a section of wall torn out so he could watch and savor his firing-squads at work.

Even as a youth, Ernesto Guevara’s writings revealed a serious malevolence. This passage is from Ernesto Guevara’s famous The Motorcycle Diaries: “My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any vencido that falls in my hands! With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!”.  Robert Redford somehow overlooked it while producing a screenplay based on Guevara’s memoir.

The Spanish word vencido translates into “defeated” or “surrendered,” but “the “acrid odor of gunpowder and blood” to reach Guevara’s nostrils very rarely came from anything remotely describable as combat, but from the close-range murders of unarmed and defenseless men and boys.

15-year-old Carlos Machado was one of those victims in 1963 when the bullets from Guevara’s firing squad shattered his body. Carlos’ twin brother and father collapsed beside him from the same volley. All had resisted Castro and Che’s theft of their humble family farm, all refused blindfolds and all died sneering at their Communist murderers, as did thousands of their valiant countrymen.The one genuine “accomplishment” in Che Guevara’s life was the mass-murder of defenseless men and boys. Under his own gun dozens died. Under his orders thousands crumpled. At everything else, Che Guevara failed abysmally, even risibly. For instance, during his Bolivian “guerrilla” campaign, Che split his forces whereupon they got hopelessly lost and bumbled around, half-starved, half-clothed and half-shod, without any contact with each other for six months before being wiped out. They didn’t even have WWII vintage walkie-talkies to communicate and seemed incapable of applying a compass reading to a map. They spent much of the time walking in circles and were usually within a mile of each other. During this blundering they often engaged in ferocious firefights against each other.”You hate to laugh at anything associated with Che, who murdered so many,” says Felix Rodriguez, the Cuban-American CIA officer who played a key role in tracking him down in Bolivia. “But when it comes to Che as “guerrilla” you simply can’t help but guffaw.”

So, for many, the question remains: how did such an incurable doofus, sadist and epic idiot attain such iconic status?

The answer is that this psychotic and thoroughly unimposing vagrant named Ernesto “Che” Guevara had the magnificent fortune of linking up with modern history’s top ‘press agent’, Fidel Castro, who — from the New York Times‘ Herbert Matthews in 1957, through CBS’ Ed Murrow in 1959, to CBS’ Dan Rather, to ABC’s Barbara Walters, to NBC’s Andrea Mitchell more recently — always had the mainstream media anxiously scurrying to his every beck and call and eating out of his hand like trained pigeons.

Had Ernesto Guevara not linked up with Raul and Fidel Castro in Mexico City that fateful summer of 1955, everything points to Ernesto continuing his life as a traveling hobo, panhandling, mooching off women, staying in flophouses and scribbling unreadable poetry.

Che’s image is particularly ubiquitous on college campuses, but in the wrong places. He belongs in the marketing, PR and advertising departments. His lessons and history are fascinating and valuable, but only in light of P.T. Barnum. One born every minute, Mr. Barnum? If only you’d lived to see the Che phenomenon. Actually, ten are born every second.

His pathetic whimpering while dropping his fully-loaded weapons as two Bolivian soldiers approached him on Oct. 8 1967 (“Don’t shoot!” I’m Che!” I’m worth more to you alive than dead!”) proves that this cowardly, murdering swine was unfit to carry his victims’ slop buckets.

Walmart, Amazon, Google, Sears Still Profiting off Mass-Murdering Communist Che Guevara

Walmart Che Guevara Change Petition

Gateway Pundit

The Confederate Battle flag is being cleansed in a Stalinist purge, being banned from sale by major businesses including Walmart, Amazon and Google Shops.

Yet those merchants are still selling goods glorifying the late mass-murdering communist leader Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara despite complaints and petitions from customers. One of the petitions was started by a woman who says her grandfather in Cuba was executed by Guevara.

Walmart is still selling seventeen posters and fine art prints of Guevara since The Gateway Pundit first reported on Walmart last month.

che postersAmazon is selling 853 posters and prints, 397 flags and 1,091 t-shirts of Guevara.

Sears is selling over 500 Che Guevara items numerous including posters, prints and t-shirts.

Google Shops, which banned Confederate battle flag merchandise, is still promoting sales of Che Guevara merchandise.

At the petition site Change.org there are two petitions calling on Walmart to stop selling Che Guevara merchandise and one calling on Amazon to do the same.

Another petition calls on retailers to stop selling all items promoting communism including Che Guevara items.

The first Walmart petition was started by Yoani Suarez on June 29 with the title and message:

Stop selling Che Guevara merchandise

“Walmart should stop selling Che Guevara merchandise because he was a murderer in the Cuban revolution. She(sic) killed thousands of Afro – Cubans because he was a racist. If Walmart is going to stop selling Confederate states flag they should stop selling Che Guevara Merchandise.”

The second Walmart petition was started by Barbara Rangel on July 1 with the title and message:

Stop selling merchandise of the assassin Che Guevara

“Che Guevara was an Argentinian mercenary that murdered thousands of innocent people including my grandfather Col. Cornelio Rojas who was the chief of police in Santa Clara , Cuba . His execution was televised and was denied the opportunity of a fair trial . Che Guevara murdered him by firing squad to terrorize the Cuban people and to show them what would happen to anyone that opposed the Castro’s communist ideals .”

The Amazon petition was started by Robert Hruska on July 2 and with the title and message:

Stop selling merchandise glorifying Che Guevara

“Che Guevara glorified the idea of nuclear war against civilians. He said:

“If the nuclear missiles had remained [in Cuba], we would have used them against the very heart of America, including New York City…We will march the path of victory even if it costs millions of atomic victims…We must keep our hatred alive and fan it to paroxysm.”

“He was a racist, who said:

“”The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the Portuguese.”

“And also:

““The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving.”

““He was a proud Maoist Communist, and said that there was “not a single discrepancy” between Mao’s world view and his own. In China, Chairman Mao killed an estimated 40 million Chinese in his quest to implement his brand of Communism.

“Finally, Che Guevara oversaw many executions (at least 500) of political prisoners in Cuba’s La Cabaña Prison.
“Murder, genocide and political executions have no place in the American dialogue. America has not always been perfect, but it strives to be a place where divergent ideologies can discuss ways to improve the American society. Che Guevara, who advocated genocide, tyranny and murder, should not be glorified by products sold on Amazon.com.”

Walmart Drops Merchandise With Confederate Flag, Still Sells Items With Che Guevara

Young Conservatives

Retail giant Walmart has decided to drop selling merchandise with the Confederate flag on it, in light of the recent shooting in South Carolina where Dylann Roof — a racist — murdered nine people.

Photos of Roof were uncovered featuring him with a Confederate flag, thus it’s once again been relegated to a racist symbol, something Walmart claims it wants nothing to do with.

There’s just one teeny, tiny problem.

The store still sells merchandise with Che Guevara on it, a Communist murderer who hated blacks.

Seems a little inconsistent, don’t you think?

From CNN:

Walmart and Sears, two of the country’s largest retailers, will remove all Confederate flag merchandise from their stores.

The announcements are the latest indication that the flag, a symbol of the slave-holding South, has become toxic in the aftermath of a shooting last week at a historic African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina. Gov. Nikki Haley announced in a Monday afternoon news conference that she supports removing the Confederate flag from the state capitol grounds.

As of Monday afternoon, Walmart.com carried the Confederate flag as well as attire featuring the flag’s design, such as T-shirts and belt buckles.

“We never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer. We have taken steps to remove all items promoting the confederate flag from our assortment — whether in our stores or on our web site,” said Walmart spokesman Brian Nick. “We have a process in place to help lead us to the right decisions when it comes to the merchandise we sell. Still, at times, items make their way into our assortment improperly — this is one of those instances.”

This statement doesn’t exactly appear to be true when you continue to sell items featuring the face of a notorious freedom hating murderer who also had a strong dislike for blacks.

Vile: U.N. To Honor Marxist Mass Murderer Che Guevara…

Weasel Zippers

And Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (who was born in Cuba) is not happy about it.

(WASHINGTON) – Today U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, commented on the decision by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to include “The Life and Works of Ernesto Che Guevara” in this year’s additions to the Memory of the World Register. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

“UNESCO continued its longstanding tradition of making a mockery of its own institution when it opted to venerate and memorialize the life of a blood thirsty, murderous sadist, Che Guevara, by including his works as an entry in its ‘Memory of the World Register.’ This decision is more than an insult to the families of those Cubans who were lined up and summarily executed by Che and his merciless cronies but it also serves as a direct contradiction to the UNESCO ideals of encouraging peace and universal respect for human rights.

“This latest reprehensible action is a microcosm of the existing problems within UNESCO today. There isn’t any semblance of common sense left in that body. From its decision to accept a non-existent state of Palestine into its membership, to glorifying Che’s ruthless crimes against humanity, UNESCO deserves no funding from US taxpayers. The Obama Administration is wrong to continue to seek to restore funding to UNESCO. The Administration must immediately end its push to send $225 million in American taxpayer money to UNESCO that would enable that organization to keep undermining our friend and ally, the democratic Jewish State of Israel, and would insult the memories of those who suffered under Che and continue to suffer under the Castro brothers.”

Britain Bans Michael Savage—Welcomes Castroite Butchers

CFP

After two years of legal wrangling radio-host Michael Savage is still banned from setting foot in Britain. The original ban handed down in May 2009 was explained by former Labor Home Secretary Jacqui Smith. “Coming to the U.K. is a privilege,” she said, “and I refuse to extend that privilege to individuals who abuse our standards and values and who foster extremist views as I want them to know that they are not welcome here. Mr. Savage engages in unacceptable behavior by seeking to provoke others to serious criminal acts and fostering hatred.”

Mourning in America

CFP

Our entire country, indeed the world, mourns the victims of the savage attack in Tucson that left six dead, including an esteemed federal judge and beautiful nine-year-old Christina Taylor Green; 14 seriously wounded; and Rep. Gabrielle Giffords fighting for her life after a bullet from the gun of her crazed killer and apparent stalker Jared Loughner entered and then exited her brain.

While millions of words have been written about this unspeakable tragedy, I write here of another mourning, specifically the agony of the left at having irrevocably lost the American public, and with that loss their grandiose ambitions of turning our Democratic Republic into a Communist stronghold.

Simply, the leftists-cum-progressives among us have never recovered from their thundering defeat in the midterm elections of November 2—not just 63 seats in the House and six in the Senate, but also an overwhelming number of Republican governorships and control over more state legislative seats than any time since 1928.

The Left, Not the Right, Owns Political Violence

American Thinker
It took less than 24 hours for the political left to seize upon the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of six people on Saturday to blame the political right for the shooting.

 

Perhaps the most egregious example came from Paul Krugman of the New York Times, who wrote, “We don’t have proof yet that this was political, but the odds are that it was.”  (The newspaper that published plagiarized and fabricated accounts of the “D.C. sniper” by affirmative-action hire Jayson Blair in 2003 is still publishing unsubstantiated suppositions without “proof,” eh?)

Obama’s International Socialist Connections

Accuracy in Media

Campaign workers for Senator and presidential candidate Barack Obama are under fire for displaying a flag featuring communist hero Che Guevara. But Obama has his own controversial socialist connections. He is, in fact, an associate of a Chicago-based Marxist group with access to millions of labor union dollars and connections to expert political consultants, including a convicted swindler.

Obama’s socialist backing goes back at least to 1996, when he received the endorsement of the Chicago branch of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) for an Illinois state senate seat.  Later, the Chicago DSA newsletter reported that Obama, as a state senator, showed up to eulogize Saul Mendelson, one of the “champions” of “Chicago’s democratic left” and a long-time socialist activist. Obama’s stint as a “community organizer” in Chicago has gotten some attention, but his relationship with the DSA socialists, who groomed and backed him, has been generally ignored.

Blogger Steve Bartin, who has been following Obama’s career and involvement with the Chicago socialists, has uncovered a fascinating video showing Obama campaigning for openly socialist Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. Interestingly, Sanders, who won his seat in 2006, called Obama “one of the great leaders of the United States Senate,” even though Obama had only been in the body for about two years. In 2007, the National Journal said that Obama had established himself as “the most liberal Senator.” More liberal than Sanders? That is quite a feat. Does this make Obama a socialist, too?

DSA describes itself as the largest socialist organization in the United States and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International. The Socialist International (SI) has what is called “consultative status” with the United Nations. In other words, it works hand-in-glove with the world body.

The international connection is important and significant because an Obama bill, “The Global Poverty Act,” has just been rushed through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, with the assistance of Democratic Senator Joe Biden, the chairman, and Republican Senator Richard Lugar. The legislation (S.2433) commits the U.S. to spending hundreds of billions of dollars more in foreign aid on the rest of the world, in order to comply with the “Millennium Goals” established by the United Nations. Conservative members of the committee were largely caught off-guard by the move to pass the Obama bill but are putting a  “hold” on it, in order to try to prevent the legislation, which also quickly passed the House, from being quickly brought up for a full Senate vote. But observers think that Senate Democrats may try to pass it quickly anyway, in order to give Obama a precious legislative “victory” that he could run on.

Another group associated with the SI is the Party of European Socialists (PES), which heard from Howard Dean, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, back in 2006. Dean’s speech is posted on the official Democratic Party website, although the European socialist parties are referred to as “progressive.” Democrats, Dean said, want to be “good citizens of the world community.” He spoke at a session on “Global Challenges for Progressive Politics.”

Following up, in April 2007, PES President Poul Nyrup Rasmussen reported that European socialists held a meeting “in the Democrats HQ in Washington,” met with officials of the party and Democratic members of Congress, and agreed that “PES activist groups” in various U.S. cities would start working together. The photos of the trip show Rasmussen meeting with such figures as Senator Ben Cardin, Senator Bernie Sanders, officials of the Brookings Institution, Howard Dean, and AFL-CIO President John W. Sweeney, a member of the DSA. The Brookings Institution is headed by former Clinton State Department official Strobe Talbott, a proponent of world government who was recently identified in the book Comrade J as having been a pawn of the Russian intelligence service.

The socialist connections of Obama and the Democratic Party have certainly not been featured in the Washington Post columns of Harold Meyerson, who happens not only to be a member but a vice-chair of the DSA. Meyerson, the subject of our 2005 column, “A Socialist at the Washington Post,” has praised convicted inside-trader George Soros for manipulating campaign finance laws to benefit the far-left elements of the Democratic Party. Obama’s success in the Democratic presidential primaries and caucuses is further evidence of Soros’s success. Indeed, Soros has financially contributed to the Obama campaign.

It is not surprising that the Chicago Democrat, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, has endorsed Obama. Schakowsky, who endorsed Howard Dean for president in 2004, was honored in 2000 at a dinner sponsored by the Chicago chapter of the DSA. Her husband, Robert Creamer, emerged from federal prison in November 2006 after serving five months for financial crimes. He pleaded guilty to ripping off financial institutions while running a non-profit group.  Before he was convicted but under indictment, Creamer was hired by the Soros-funded Open Society Policy Center to sabotage John Bolton’s nomination as Ambassador to the U.N.

After his release from prison, Creamer released a book, Listen to Your Mother: Stand up Straight: How Progressives Can Win, described by one blogger as the book that was “penned in the pen.” A blurb for the book declares, “Some people think that in order to win, Democrats need to move to the political center by adopting conservative values and splitting the difference between progressive and conservative positions. History shows they are wrong. To win the next election and to win in the long term, we need to redefine the political center.”

In addition to writing the book, Creamer is back in business, running his firm, Strategic Consulting Group, and advertising himself as “a consultant to the campaigns to end the war in Iraq, pass universal health care, change America’s budget priorities and enact comprehensive immigration reform.” His clients have included the AFL-CIO and MoveOn.org. In fact, his client list is a virtual who’s who of the Democratic Party, organized labor, and Democratic Party constituency groups.

Creamer’s list of testimonials comes from such figures as Democratic Senators Dick Durbin (Ill.) and Sherrod Brown (Ohio), Harold Meyerson, MoveOn.org founder Wes Boyd, and David Axelrod, a “Democratic political consultant.”

Axelrod, of course, is much more than just a “Democratic political consultant.” He helped State Senator Barack Obama win his U.S. Senate seat in 2004 and currently serves as strategist and media advisor to Obama’s presidential campaign.
