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!”


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.
