Let’s play a game of guess the leader by their quotes... some of what Che stood for.

On value of life, liberty and property:

  • "We must eliminate all newspapers; we cannot make a revolution with free press."
  • "I don’t need proof to execute a man. I only need proof that it’s necessary to execute him."
  • "I ended the problem with a .32 caliber pistol, in the right side of his brain... His belongings were now mine."
  • "We executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were fully guilty... the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation."

His views on race:

  • "The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving... and drives to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations."

On love and tolerance:

  • "people without hatred cannot vanquish a brutal enemy”
  • "My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. I’d like to confess... at that moment I discovered that I really like killing."

On Nuclear war

  • "What we affirm is that we must proceed along the path of liberation even if this costs millions of atomic victims."
  • “The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind! Against those hyenas there is no option but extermination! If [we could have] we would have fired [Nuclear Missiles] against the heart of the U.S. including New York City!”

Conclusion

Burn books, ban music, hate blacks, wallow in hate, take pleasure in killing everyone that disagrees with you, and become a symbol of hope and liberty? What does that say about the people or society that celebrate the lifetime achievements or ideology of such a person?

Of course we’re talking about the T-Shirt Idol, Che Guevara. And the reason I post this is another fawning fan had posted how great Che and the Motorcycle Diaries (book) was. Yup, truly a delightful idol to over indulged college kids everywhere. A true charmer that guy. And poor little Chucky Manson was just misunderstood.
