    Re: The real Che Guevara

    These facts are simply skidded over by Che’s defenders, who stick to romantic generalities about how he stood for "honesty" and "revolution". But Che Guevara is not a free-floating icon of rebellion. He was an actual person who supported an actual system of tyranny, one that murdered millions of actual people. He was a cold-blooded psychopath. That is probably why the Left is so enamored of him. He represents all their darkest fantasies.

    Re: The real Che Guevara

    “This is the wonder of the revolution: Fifty years of state terror hasn't silenced the resistance. Maybe one day Hollywood will make a film about it.” - MARY ANASTASIA O'GRADY, Hollywood Celebrates Che Guevara, WSJ.com.

    Indeed they will. The time of reckoning is approaching, and at that time the sh_t will hit the fan and Che fans will have it all over their faces. Bon Appétit

    Re: The real Che Guevara

    Ciro Roberto Bustos, a committed Communist up to his death on January 1, 2017, who was Che's right-hand man in Argentina and Bolivia, in his book “Che Wants to See You”, said: “Guevara was in deed a 'synthesis of pathological sadism and fundamentalist extremism.” The French writer Regis Debray, author of "Revolution in the revolution", wrote about Che that: "He was adept of the totalitarianism up to the last body hair.” Che impulsive cruel behavior inflicted physical and psychological pain on others to assert his power. He literally interpreted the Marxism doctrine and engaged in arm struggle to enforce it.

    Re: The real Che Guevara

    Open letter to Carlos Santana
    Che at the Oscars

    Paquito D'Rivera - New York, March 25, 2005

    Hola, Santana:

    I found out, through our friend Raul Artiles, that you'll be performing in Miami soon; I find this rather ill-advised, since not too long ago you committed the faux-pas of appearing at the "Oscar Awards" ceremony, brandishing, with pride, an enormous crucifix over a tee-shirt with that archaic and stereotyped image of "The Butcher of the Cabaña," the moniker given to the lamentable character known as Ché Guevara by those Cubans who had to suffer his tortures and humiliations in that nefarious prison.

    One of these Cubans was my cousin Bebo, imprisoned there just for being a Christian. He recounts to me on occasion, always with infinite bitterness, how he could hear, from his cell, in the early hours of dawn, the executions without prior trials or process of law, of the many who died shouting, "Long Live Christ The King!"

    The guerrilla guy with the beret with the star is something more than that ridiculous film about a motorcycle, my illustrious colleague, and to juxtapose Christ with Ché Guevara is like entering a synagogue with a swastika hanging from your neck; it's also a harsh blow in the face of that Cuban youth from the 60's, who had to go into hiding to listen to your albums which the Revolution, and the troglodyte Argentinian and his cohorts, dubbed as "imperialist music" (i.e. Rock & Roll)



    I can't find all the words to express my indignation over your irresponsible attitude, but believe me that in spite of all, as an artist I always wish you luck. And you're going to need it, Carlos. specially in Miami!



    Sincerely:
    Paquito D'Rivera
    Cuban Jazz musician Paquito D'Rivera in his letter to Santana in Spanish (the letter was translate into English), who played the son part of the soundtrack of the movie “The Motorcycle Diaries” that won an Oscar, and wore a crucifix an a shirt with the image of Che's face wrote: "My command of English wouldn't allow me to fully express my indignation" at your cheeky Oscar gig. The Motorcycle Diaries is another example of the attempts by the Left to rehabilitate Che criminal legacy as Fidel’s executioner.”

    Re: The real Che Guevara

    Those youth that played Santana music were among the “people who have committed crimes against revolutionary morals” and were confined in the first concentration camp established in Guanahacabibes Peninsula, Cuba, at the end of 1960 by Che Guevara without due process. Their “crime” involve laziness, long hair and playing loud music (Rock & Roll). Che, a butcher who was a humorless psychopath, was the talk of the town at the 2005 Oscars Academy Awards.

    Re: The real Che Guevara

    The lefties who attempt to present Che as a philanthropist of firm Christian values, the answer is given to them in this excerpt of the letter he wrote to his mother on July 15, 1956 from a Mexican prison: “I am not Christ nor a philanthropist, I'm quite the opposite of Christ, and philanthropy seems to me something of....(illegible word), I fight for the things I believe in with all the weapons at my disposal, and try to leave the other dead to avoid myself to be nailed to a cross or anything else.”

    Re: The real Che Guevara

    “The Motorcycle Diaries” movie screenplay based on Che’s diary “Notas de Viaje” (Traveling Notes) about his travel through Latin America, romanticized his figure and in order to make him more appealing, conveniently omitted these passages from the movie:

    In February 1952 when Che Guevara and Alberto Granado arrived in Chile, they posed as medical specialists in leprology, obtaining an interview with a local newspaper where they are recognize as such. They become known for that newspaper article, availing themselves of said deceit to obtain free room and board. As Che wrote, “we were now ‘The Experts,’ and we were treated accordingly.” In this case like in others reported by him, his lack of honesty conducted him to defraud those who crossed his path.

    In the port of Valparaiso, Chile, hopping to scheme a free trip aboard a ship to Easter Island, Che wrote: "Easter Island… there to have a white boyfriend is an honor for the females. There, work, what hope, the women do it all, and one eats, sleeps and keeps them content… What would it matter to remain a year there, who cares about studies, salary, family, etc.” This show his prejudice against women, a classic display of machismo.

    Get real. The principle reason why Che is/was popular with the left in Latin America and with some in the US is that he left Cuba, where he could have had a plush job in the revolution, to go off to another idealistic fight to help hungry people. It doesn't excuse Che or Fidel's crimes, or leftists who might have had star in their eyes about the notion of Latin American revolutions -- easy to do when one saw the misery and horror the US created, supported and/or sustained in the region for much of the 20th century. The fantasies were not dark ones.

    I keep posting about Che in order than you and others learn the truth about him. This thread has so far 1208 replies and 158,755 views. I am providing you a link to an article which I recommend the reading, “Che Guevara: The Fish Die by the Mouth.” What better source than Che Guevara himself. This is a great article, concise and at the same time comprehensive. A lot has been written about Che, but I hadn’t seeing a compilation such complete and effective like this article.

    Link: Cuba: Che Guevara: The Fish Die by the Mouth

    Introduction

    The saying “The fish die by the mouth”, refers to those who speak more than the necessary until being fooled by their own speech. Can his mythical reputation survive the publication of his own words?

    The objective of this article is to expose the truth about Che, to demystify it in the face of those who feel admiration by this mass murderer, exposing the facts based on his writings, diaries, speeches, letters and conversations with those who knew him.

    Re: The real Che Guevara

    Che description of the South American indigenous people is the opposite of his reaction shown in the movie "The Motorcycle Diaries." In page 116 of the diary he wrote: “The somewhat animal-like concept the indigenous people have of modesty and hygiene means that irrespective of gender or age they do their business by the roadside, the women cleaning themselves with their skirts, the men not bothering at all, and then carry on as before. The underskirts of Indian women who have kids are literally warehouses of excrement, a consequence of the way they wipe the rascals every time one of them passes wind.” This is an extremely racist view, to compere the behavior of indigenous people to those of animals.

    In Caracas, Venezuela, after visiting a black neighborhood, Che wrote in his dairy: “The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the Portuguese. The contempt and poverty unites them in the daily struggle, but the different way of dealing with life separates them completely; the black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations.” His racism against black is make evident, a stereotypical remark about the superiority of white against blacks.
