Ernesto Che Guevara is admired by the Progressives all over the world. They have turned him into a icon. He is nothing but a killer and a loser. He was an Argentine reject who went to Cuba to buddy up with the Castro brothers. After the revolution, he had many killed without mercy. He was no hero but a thug.
HOLLYWOOD history is often nonsensical, but film-makers usually have the good sense not to whitewash killers and sadists. Steven Soderbergh’s new film about Che Guevara, however, does that, and more.
Che the revolutionary romantic, as depicted by Benecio del Toro in Soderbergh’s film, never existed. That hero of the Left, with his hippie hair and beard, an image now iconic on T-shirts and coffee mugs around the world, is a myth concocted by Fidel Castro’s propagandists – something of a cross between Don Quixote and Robin Hood.
Read the rest.
He was also a failure. He didn’t succeed in the Congo and suffered the best outcome for any Progressive thug. He went to Bolivia and tried to start revolution there. The Bolivian people didn’t fall for his Hope and Change lie and the result was he got the fate he deserved.
My question is why do Progressives admire this loser?
