Why does Obama identify with Che Guevera, a bloody murderer who was a coward?

Ernesto 'Che' Guevarra, bloody murderer

Ernesto "Che" Guevara simply loved killing prisoners.

“When you saw the beaming look on Che’s face as the victims were tied to the stake and blasted apart by the firing squad, you saw there was something seriously, seriously wrong with Che Guevara,” former Cuban political prisoner Roberto Martin-Perez told Humberto Fontovo.

As commander of the La Cabana execution yard, Che often shattered the skull of the condemned man (or boy) by firing the coup de grace himself. When other duties tore him away from his beloved execution yard, he consoled himself by viewing the slaughter. Che’s second-story office in Havana’s La Cabana prison had a section of wall torn out so he could watch his darling firing-squads at work.

'Kick me' shirts. After helpling the Castros install Communism in Cuba, Guevara tried to enslave the rest of Latin America in hopes of amassing more prisoners to torture and murder. Fortunately, he was stopped in Bolivia on Oct. 9, 1967. Unfortunately, however, a few stupid people believe "Che" died for a worthy cause. The fools wear the executioner's face on their T-shirts.

The fact is, "Che" sunk as low as a man could go. To me, Guevara's face means "Kick me or I'll blow your skull open."
*****************


Time Magazine just listed Che Guevara among the world’s top 25 political icons.

Che ranks number 9, between Adolph Hitler (8) and Ronald Reagan (10.)

Mao Tse Tung ranks 3rd, Genghis Khan 5th, and Mohandas Gandhi 1st.

So okay, Time’s obviously not making a moral judgment call here. “We look at world leaders whose legacies have stood the test of time,” they explain. Fine. Sounds perfectly reasonable and objective.

Time Magazine’s last ranking of Che Guevara in 1999 as among “The 100 Most Important People of the Century," at first glance also appeared objective. Until you read further and found that they placed Che in the "Heroes and Icons" section, alongside Anne Frank, Andrei Sakharov, Rosa Parks and Mother Theresa. On FoxNews Alan Colmes scoffed at my claim for this--then gaped (semi) apologetically at my proof.

“Nothing could be more vicariously gratifying than Che Guevara’s disdain for material comfort and everyday desires,” read Time’s Encomium to Che Guevara in 1999 composed by Duke Professor Ariel Dorfman, whose “research” overlooked some important details:

"Che’s house was among the most luxurious in Cuba," writes Cuban journalist Antonio Llano Montes about the Mansion-estate Che Guevara “acquired” promptly upon entering Havana in January 1959.

After a hard day at the office signing firing-squad murder warrants and blasting teen-agers’ skull’s apart with the coup-de-grace from his .45, Che Guevara repaired to his new domicile just outside Havana on the pristine beachfront (today reserved exclusively for tourists and Communist party members, by the way.) Until a few weeks prior, it had belonged to Cuba's most successful building contractor. “The mansion had a boat dock, a huge swimming pool, seven bathrooms, a sauna, a massage salon and several television sets,” continues Llano Montes. “One TV had been specially designed in the U.S. and had a screen ten feet wide and was operated by remote control (remember, this was 1959.) This was thought to be the only TV of its kind in Latin America.

The mansion's garden had a veritable jungle of imported plants, a pool with waterfall, ponds filled with exotic tropical fish and several bird houses filled with parrots and other exotic birds. The habitation was something out of A Thousand and One Nights."
The "austere idealist," Che Guevara, hadn't done too badly for himself in this real estate “acquisition” (hand over all your property Mr. Cuban contractor, or face a firing squad.)

“Che was the embodiment of a man true to his word,” asserts the current Time encomium to Che Guevara by Dan Fastenberg, a recent graduate of Columbia School of Journalism.

Alas, the “research” by Time Magazine’s “gallant crusader for the truth” (Columbia School of Journalism’s term for its graduates) again appears deficient:

“I am not a communist and have never been a communist,” was how Che Guevara gave his truthful word to the New York Times on Jan. 4th 1959. “It gives me great pain to be called a communist,” he continued truthing.

“Che was the embodiment of a man who never backs down and is willing to pay the ultimate price,” continues Fastenberg. “After Guevara was captured fomenting revolution in Bolivia in 1967, he said, "Go ahead and kill me, I am just a man."
In fact, on his second to last day alive, Che Guevara ordered his guerrilla charges to give no quarter, to fight to the last breath and to the last bullet. With his men doing exactly that, Che snuck away from the firefight, and crawled towards the Bolivian soldiers doing the firing.

The details of Che’s capture are available in the official records of the men who captured him. Columbia School of Journalism graduates and Time “investigative journalists” are no more barred from reading those records than is this writer. These documents record this “embodiment of a man who never backs down” dropping his fully loaded weapons on Oct. 8, 1967 and whimpering: “Don’t Shoot! I’m Che Guevara! I’m worth more to you alive than dead!”

But it was only after his (obviously voluntary) capture that Che segued into full Eddie-Hasquell-Greeting-June-Cleaver-Mode. “What’s your name, young man?!” Che quickly asked one of his captors. “Why what a lovely name for a Bolivian soldier!”
“You are a very special person!” Che then commended the soldier’s commander, Captain Gary Prado. “I have been talking to some of your men. They think very highly of you, captain Prado!..Now, could you please find out what they plan to do with me?....I don’t suppose you will kill me. I’m surely more valuable alive!”

His Bolivian captors viewed the matter differently. In fact they adopted a policy that has since become a favorite among Americans who encounter (so-called) endangered species on their property: "Shoot, shovel, and shut-up." Justice has never been better served.

    "Che is not only an intellectual, he was the most complete human being of our time, our eras most perfect man." — Jean Paul Sartre


    CHE GUEVARA:

    - Worked in a Leper colony and treated lepers (as seen in the excellent film ‘The Motorcycle Diaries’)

    - Was instrumental in teaching over 900,000 Cubans to read

    - Tended to thousands of sick campesinos

    - Called out South Africa’s Apartheid in 1964, 30 years before the West!

    - Denounced the racism and KKK in America

    - Warned of the dangers of the IMF, 3 decades before most of the developing world realized they had been scammed into debt slavery

    - Left a bourgeoisie comfortable life of the upper class, a potential well compensated career as a medical doctor, and a high regarded governmental position, each time to slog through the jungle and fight guerrilla wars against impenetrable odds! ...

    Che’s “CRIMES” were:

    ~ Stopping American companies from owning 70 % of the arable land in Cuba

    ~ Teaching peasants to read, by bringing the Cuban literacy rate from 60 to 97 %

    ~ Having the 200 or so War Criminals who killed 20,000 Cubans for Batista shot against a wall

    ~ Fighting white mercenaries in the African Congo with an all black army

    ~ Speaking out against US and eventually USSR Imperialism while demanding that the poor of the world be allowed to live a life of dignity

    I'm really only commenting to say that the image of Obama wearing a Che T-shirt with Che wearing an Obama T-Shirt is hillarious. Almost as good Che wearing a Che T-Shirt (because as everyone knows, Che did all that revolutioning so high college kids didn't have to worry about what T-Shirt they were going to wear to the party on Saturday night).

    Well, they both subscribe to the same ideological thinking but Churchill had a different take::

    "Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy."

    Maybe that's why obama returned the Churchill bust from the Oval Office as quickly as he did?

    " CHE " was a murdering coward ( and that says a LOT about the far left ) . They worship a murdering coward as a hero ? The reason " those people " worship this worthless piece of slime is one of two things .
    #1 Reason - They are IGNORANT and know nothing about Che . They wear his image because they think it's cool .
    #2 Reason - They are " TRUE " radicals / Marxists / Communists / etc. much like our POTUS . Remember , he wrote about this in his book . He said that he associated with revolutionaries / marxists / etc.

    Leftwingers identify with him. Obama's a leftwinger. Obama's campaign office displayed Che's image. When Obama was called out for it, he merely referred to it as "inappropriate," but allowed it to remain. That's called tacit approval.

    Hi Theodon.

    Don't know, don't care. I'm not American, and not a supporter of Obama. It's rather sad that people assume you must support something or someone merely because you object to people lying about them. I commented here because I'm anti-dishonesty in debates, and I'm anti-stupid. If a person needs to use blatant dishonesty to support their views, then their views can't have much merit. Cheers.
