• The known victims of Ché Guevara

    ‘Ché’ Guevara is a key icon to many people on the Left, because they think he was a good just because he opposed the USA. Yes, he did that, but he also was somewhat of a bloodthirsty gangster… who happened to hate the States.

    Anyway, two days ago was the 45th anniversary of his death (no wonder that Evo Morales, Bolivian President, dedicated Hugo Chávez’ third reelection to the martyr).

    Here is a non-comprehensive list of the known victims of Ernesto ‘el Ché’ Guevara:

    • prussian

      Not surprising. Anti-americanism is such a strong part of all life-hating movements it’s surprising (it’s worth noting that genuine liberators, such as Mandela, had nothing but respect for the US founders even when they had a great deal more to complain about in terms of US policy.

      • I know! I do have a great deal of respect for the US Founding Fathers, and I also happen to think the Democrat and Republican parties are an insult to their memory!

        • disumbrationist

          Those founding fathers you respect also had people executed. George Washington certainly did during the Revolutionary war. It’s part of being involved in a violent revolution. See ‘George Washington’s Enforcers’ by Harry Ward. Condemn none, condemn both, but at least be consistent.

          • I am consistent, but I was unaware of that issue you are raising. I’ll look into it. Thank you.

    • No Such Thing As Blasphemy

      Sadly, for many people, anti-americanism has become an ideology, as immutable as any religion. The US must be wrong, even if it means siding with world’s bloodiest murderers and tyrants. I do not approve of everything my adopted country has done in the world. But I do think that those who are seeking to slam “el imperio” or whatever they call us in the local language at every turn were a bit more open minded and not so dogmatic.

        I think that describes the majority of the left-leaning people I know! It’s disgraceful, because it clouds their judgement.

        That makes two of us now.
