So, I'm reading this article about Che (well, really about our ol pal Hugo) and how brain dead celebrities and naive teenagers think he's so uber cool and the antithesis of authority and I decided that someone needs to make a t-shirt with the famous Che face ... only with a bullet hole between the eyes. 'Cause that's the only way this monster did any good - being murdered like a coward while trying to flee the 'cause' he supported.
Why do intellectuals (so called) and celebrities think that mass murderers are so cool...as long as they're the "right" mass murders? i.e. Mao, Marx, and Che. Hitler isn't as cool apparently because he was just so damn obvious about his atrocities. Plus he lost this brutal war, you know.
My son is going to learn about these monsters. History does matter and forgetting history (or believing the white washed version that some lib-tard professor tries to teach) has consequences.
I recommend this book. I've heard the author interviewed a couple of times and have read his book (it's good, and not super long). Reading it at work (I used to work out at lunch and would read it on the treadmill... note the past tense) a coworker saw it and got all excited that I was reading about Che. Until she saw the full title. *grin* Then she stormed away in a huff.
It saddens me when otherwise intelligent people defend mass murderers. One excuse? "The people who tell these stories are just the rich ones who were forced out."
*insert cricket chirps and blank stare here*
