The President and Che Guevara

A photo of President Barack Obama standing in front of a mural of the infamous Communist Revolutionary Che Guevara stirred many emotions today. From Liberals who thought Conservatives were “having a meltdown,” to Cubans who felt that the United States had somehow  diminished the history of the Cuban people. One gentleman of Cuban heritage, Dan Le Batard for the Miami Herald, wrote that it was like “turning a funeral into a party.”

The Hill reported,

Earlier in the morning, the president posed for a photo with the U.S. and Cuban delegations in Havana’s Revolutionary Square, with large sculptures of revolutionary icons Ernesto “Che” Guevara and Camilo Cienfuegos in the backdrop.

Obama was there to participate in a wreath-laying ceremony at a memorial to Cuban independence hero José Martí, where both nations’ national anthems were played.

The president called the wreath laying “a historic moment” and said it was “pretty remarkable to hear the anthems here, side by side, in Havana with the president of the United States.”

Why were  Conservatives upset? Who was Che Guevara?

Remarkable? It was  sadly oblivious to suffering. Obama looked like he was in his “element.” Surrounded by Socialists, Marxists, Communists like he knew when he was young, he looked deliriously happy.

Here’s the irony: Cuba is not free, nor did they achieve “independence” in the Communist revolution. And Che Guevarra’s place in that whole mess is well documented, yet our younger generation seems to think he’s some sort of ‘hero’ instead of a murderer.

Rebellion, Revolution, Marxism, Murder

Michael Totten at the worldaffairsjournal wrote, 

Cuba is a police state and Che was its co-founder. Cubans “love” him the same way Romanians “loved” Nicolae Ceausescu and East Germans “loved” Berlin Wall architect Erich Honecker. 

You know what happens to Cubans who display open hatred of Che?

They get arrested.

When he was still alive, they were executed or herded into slave-labor camps.

So yeah, everyone “loves” him. It’s required by law. Woe to those who disobey State Security. 

The human spirit is a powerful force, though, and some Cubans can’t take it. A million and a half fled to the United States to escape the instruments of Che Guevara’s repression, many across the Florida Straits where the odds of survival are no better than two out of three. Others resisted at home, especially during the 1960s, the decade of global rebellion.

The real Che

Ernesto “Che” Guevara de la Serna was born in Argentina in 1928. He was an important military leader in the Castro “revolution” that “freed” Cuba from the Batista regime. Except that he “freed” them only to bring them under totalitarianism. 

“Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!” Che Guevarra

“Hatred as an element of struggle; unbending hatred for the enemy, which pushes a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold-blooded killing machine. This is what our soldiers must become …” Ché Guevara

“The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink” – Che Guevara

These were Cuba’s new concentration camps, set up so the new socialist government could rid their nation of homosexuality, which was somehow believed to be a product of capitalism. Gay artists were censored and gay people in government lost their jobs. The UMAP camps subjected homosexuals to brutal torture and some inmates committed suicide.
Not only gay men were incarcerated but effeminate men were also imprisoned to make way for Guevara’s scheme of the “new man” which was a hideously pathological homophobic ideology. People who did not fit into this fascist vision were imprisoned without charge or trial and forced to adhere to his notion of masculinity through slave labour. In these camps gay men who had been rounded up were subjected to rehabilitation and re-education…

He trained firing squads that killed thousands. When he was in charge of the La Cabana prison, he murdered no less than 550 people without a trial.

This is the man so idolized by the young, foolish, and ignorant.

If America continues this trend, this belief that murdering terrorists are “cool,” then one day in the not too distant future we may have t-shirts emblazoned with Osama bin Laden’s face. 

As Obama stood smiling beside Communist dictator Raul Castro, in front of the Che Geuvara mural, you could see that he was enjoying himself immensely.
