Murderers are not cool, though much of the Left does not appear to know that. Leftists are always happy to idolize Fidel Castro, Mao Tse-tung, Josef Stalin, Pol Pot and others of their ilk. However the most irritating of thee lionized murderers has to be the late, unlamented Che Guevara, who finally met justice on October 9, 1969 in Bolivia. For some mysterious reason, many young, ignorants seem to think wearing the visage of this mass murderer on their T-shirts and other articles of clothing is somehow cool and stylish. This is about as logical as the equally ignorant middle class youths who believe that emulating black prison fashion, complete with its baggy pants and sideways hats is somehow the height of style. The prevalence of Guevara's face on the clothing of the inhabitants of 'progressive' places like San Francisco causes me to wonder whether they actually know who this butcher was, or if they are merely indoctrinated fools who do know and are advocating replicating Guevara's acts of mass murder upon their countrymen.
However, since the fortieth anniversary of his death passed unremembered here at StoneHeads, I decided to follow the advice of the Power Line crew and join the Facebook group Che Guevara Was a Murderer and Your T-shirt Is Not Cool. I highly recommend this site for all who actually know the history of Guevara's bloody passage through Latin America. As for the useful idiots who wear Guevara's face on their attire, they demonstrate merely that ignorance is to be found among the most unlikely people. Why Americans (who are privileged to live in one of the most free and wealthiest places on Earth) would want to idolize a murderer who desperately wanted to replace their freedom with a particularly repressive form of dictatorship (also known as Communism) escapes me, but as I said, ignorance and foolishness are no strangers to those who should know better. One has only to look at the modern Democratic Party's' embrace of Islamic barbarians to appreciate this fact.
Two pictures of Guevara following his execution can be found on the site as well. I paste the link to the first picture here and the second picture's link here. Be warned, it lacks the glamor so many young fools seem to associate with the Cuban Butcher. But it may disillusion those who seem to think that Marxist revolutionaries somehow are glamorous folks. I hate to pour cold water on your fantasies, but revolutionaries like Guevara are in fact murderous thugs, and we can only hope that they end like he did- unglamorously lined up against a wall for the firing squad.
