Che Guevara in 10 (Not So) Great Quotes. The veil comes off,
6)“Hatred is the central element of our struggle! Hatred so violent that it propels a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him a violent and cold-blooded killing machine. Our soldiers must be thus.”
Richard Branson is flogging Virgin cellphones on the streets of Paris wearing a Che outfit,
It’s not clear if Branson went for 100% authenticity and didn’t shower or bathe for a few weeks prior to the stint, but Marc Masferrer is not amused.
Rather than disguise himself as a mass-murdering sociopath communist, next time Richard ought to try something more fitting to his personality,
Certainly le tout Paris will be impressed by his fashion sense.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is going to include “The Life and Works of Ernesto Che Guevara” in this year’s additions to the Memory of the World Register. They ought to dedicate the exhibit to Che Guevara’s forgotten victims.
Maradona would fit right in at UNESCO:
Galloway: “I am a soldier in Che Guevara’s army”
In case you had caught a touch of the progressive mind-flu that makes you think Guevara was some kind of freedom-loving revolutionary, have a read of this to remind you how he was a racist murderer.
Galloway describes [Che] as his “hero”. Let’s take a look at what Guevara wrote about black people, and maybe you should ask Galloway yourself if he endorses his hero and leader’s comments:
“The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations.”
Surely George knows that.
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.”
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…
I hope Carlos had TUMS handy while doing that radio show (he comes on at the 57:00 mark).
More on the proposed Galway monument to Che here.
Who said this?
“Just because Che became a chic brand for the capitalism he tried to destroy, it doesn’t mean he’s worth honoring on Galway Bay.”
Maureen Dowd said it.
I kid you not!
Cameron hopes the city council takes the memorial matter up soon. Meanwhile, he sees the totalitarian rainbow. “The ultimate fruit of all this is that Che will be known as having the Irish blood and the Galway connection,” he says. “And that is an achievement in itself.”
Certainly Cameron is checking out Pol Pot’s genealogy, in case someone from Galway turns up.
