Why Do Our College Youth Idolize Che Guevara?


Che Guevara, father, son, revolutionary, racist, homophobe, visionary, murderer, megalomaniac, the “Messiah”. History paints a varied picture of the Argentinian Marxist revolutionary. He is a Savior to Communists and the Devil to free societies.

Since the 60’s T-shirts and other apparel with his likeness have been worn. Jay-z the rapper wears them. Gisele Bundchen wears them. Prince Harry wears them. He is still considered to be a hero of the Socialist fight against capitalism and personal freedoms.

It’s a mystery as to how people come to an ill-informed opinion of the mass murderer with all of the information that is available on him. His history is filled with words, deeds, and actions that define him very clearly.

He claimed to have killed 124 people personally and sent thousands more to their deaths. And he was proud of each and every one of them in the furtherance of the cause of Marxism.

1. MURDERER: Guevara was proud of the fact that he could kill people with impunity and without determining their guilt or innocence. Guevara told the official Cuban newspaper “Revolución “in times of excessive tension we cannot proceed weakly. At the Sierra Maestra, we executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were fully guilty. At times, the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation; it has the obligation to triumph.”

So he admits they murder simply because they want to. They can’t “take the time” to establish a person’s innocence or guilt so let’s just kill them? And this is someone that American youth idolizes?

2. HOMOPHOBIC: Guevara’s diary contains his personal thoughts and opinions, no holds barred. In one of his diaries, he wrote of a man that, “apart from being homosexual and a first-rate bore, had been very nice to us.” Gays and people that had “other decadent capitalist cultural practices” were candidates for the labor camps also.

And the reality is that he did build concentration/labor camps and sent gays to those camps if he didn’t outright kill them. “The regime that Che Guevara co-founded is the only one in modern history in the Western Hemisphere to have herded gays into forced labor camps,” Humberto Fontova, author of the book “Exposing the Real Che Guevara”.

And American youth are totally OK with gays, trangenders, pedoboys, etc., AND are OK with the fact that Che imprisoned and/or killed them for being gay.

3. OPPOSED A FREE PRESS: Guevara thought that freedom of thought was a very dangerous force. People needed to think like he thought, or die. A leftist journalist named José Pardo Llada said that Guevara told him “We must eliminate all newspapers; we cannot make a revolution with free press. Newspapers are instruments of the oligarchy.”

“When Che Guevara first arrived in Havana, he moved into the biggest, most luxurious mansion in the city”, a Cuban journalist, Antonio Llano Montes wrote in 1959. And of course, Che Guevara’s goon squad made a friendly visit,” Fontova noted.

Montes was marched before Guevara who then signed the order of execution for 26 men. Che then smirked at Montes and said “I can have you shot this very night, what do you think?” Montes got the message and he quickly left Cuba for greener pastures, ones he could look at, not be buried under.

4. RACIST: Guevara in another of his diaries wrote about the blacks living in Caracas, Venezuela, saying that “those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing. 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 the facts are that many of the thousands of people that Che was sending to the firing squads were members of Batista’s army and were largely black and mulatto. Batista was not racist and promoted Latinos and Blacks alike to prominent governmental jobs.

American youth are all about being inclusive, diverse, etc., but they are totally down with Che killing blacks, because they were black. How does that work?

5. THE MESSIAH: Guevara fancied himself as the Savior of the Cuban people. His diaries were full of grandiose verbiage, and casting himself as a savior absolving the sins of privilege with bloodshed. He spoke of a “vision” he had: “I now knew… that when the great guiding spirit cleaves humanity into two antagonistic halves, I would be with the people,” he wrote.

He continued: “I see myself … the great equalizer of individual will, proclaiming the ultimate mea culpa [apology]. I feel my nostrils dilate, savoring the acrid smell of gunpowder and blood, the enemy’s death; I steel my body, ready to do battle, and prepare myself to be a sacred space within which the bestial howl of the triumphant proletariat can resound…”

American youth, by and large, are not religious and don’t believe in God, per se, yet they are willing to idolize a mass murdering, homophobic, racist, messianic Communist because “he’s cool”?

After killing thousands in Cuba and helping the dictator Castro to establish Socialism he left to start revolutions in other countries. His last hurrah was in Bolivia. And poetic justice was the order of the day in Bolivia for Che. When he surrendered to Bolivian soldiers after a battle, he was summarily executed without a trial, just as he had had thousands executed without a trial.

Gotta love the ending.
