EPA glorifies mass murderer Che on “Hispanic Heritage Month”

The Environmental Protection Agency is outdoing itself,
EPA Honors Hispanic Heritage Month With Poster Of Che Guevara And A Bit Of Plagiarism

The Environmental Protection Agency commemorated the start of Hispanic Heritage Month with a picture of Che Guevara and a bit of plagiarism.

An internal email obtained by BuzzFeed and distributed to agency employees marking the start of the celebration of Hispanic culture this Saturday, featured the above image of a horse and buggy passing a billboard of the Marxist revolutionary, in addition to a listing of facts about Hispanic culture.

“Hispanic people are vibrant, socializing and fun loving people,” one entry reads. “Among various facts associated to this culture is that they have a deep sense of involvement in their family traditions and cultures.”

Which they plagiarized from Buzzle.com. Go read the whole thing about us, “vibrant, socializing and fun loving people,” and,

To add insult to injury the photo in question was taken in Cuba, a country with a dismal environmental record thanks to the government that was installed with the help of the above pictured Che Guevara.

But fret not, it was an “inadvertent error“.

I’m sure they’ll send a retraction right away…

    Wow, this e-mail makes it sound as if they just discovered some new tribe or something. I half expected to see us referenced as being hot-blooded, great dancers and passionate. The EPA is such a joke.

    And we speak the Spanish language, too, Kate!
    Gah!!

    Gringo, excellent memory! Jeje I’d say I’m not-so-hot-blooded (I’m truly a New Englander in that respect), but guilty of the others… or so my maracucho best friend tells me :-)

    I can attest that Kate is articulate and bright and clean, too!
