The unfree world - Cuba - Che Guevara

Disgusting - Ireland to honour Che Guevara


Che Guevara

Che Guevara was a narrow-minded communist tyrant, bigot, homophobe, censor, oppressor and murderer.

For some reason he has become a symbol of "freedom" and "rebellion".



Sexy people can be oppressors too: Che Guevara (centre) in 1960.
From here.





Che banned rock and roll.

From Those Shirts (and search).



The resting place of evil.
The tomb of Che Guevara, Santa Clara, Cuba.
From here.



Poster by the press freedom group Reporters Sans Frontieres.
Based on the famous image of Che by communist photographer Alberto Korda.
The poster says: "Welcome to Cuba: The biggest prison in the world for journalists".
RSF are very left-wing, but even they can see how repressive Cuba is.




Movies



Beautiful. Simple. Unanswerable.
From ProtestWarrior.


Poster from Young America's Foundation.
It shows some (but by no means all) of the people executed by Che:



Irony: A 2004 protester at the coming execution (carried out 2005) of rapist and serial killer Michael Bruce Ross in Connecticut.
The protester wears a cap celebrating the killer Che Guevara, who personally implemented the death penalty (without trial) for scores of Cuban political prisoners.
If he thinks killing people is wrong, then why is he wearing that cap?

Another naive young man with a Che shirt.
19 year old, left-wing, anti-Israel, American Jew Lucas Koerner, with a head full of nonsense from his studies at Tufts in "International Relations", wears a Che shirt as he protests in Israel, on Jerusalem Day, 1 June 2011. He says: "Israel is the pariah state. Israel is the rogue state. And the United States."
The police said they asked him to stop shouting at the Jerusalem Day marchers. (He is standing with a crowd of Arabs who chant "Takbir! Allah Akbar!") He refuses to show ID to the police. They arrest him for disturbing the peace. He resists arrest.
Search for copies.
It's nice he's interested in politics. It's a shame his head is filled with such a muddle. I hope he reads more and gets more sense soon.




Disgusting - Ireland to honour Che Guevara

Incredibly, Galway plans a memorial to the totalitarian communist Che Guevara.



Councillor Billy Cameron of the Irish Labour Party is the man behind the Che memorial.
He is co-ordinator of the pro-communist dictatorship Cuba Support Group.
He has also been involved with the pro-communist dictatorship Galway One World Centre.



Billy Cameron, the Che lover, is also anti-Israel.
Here he urges a boycott of a company for merely doing business with Israel.
Supporting a dictatorship (Cuba) and opposing a democracy (Israel). Pathetic.


Michael Moynihan of "Right Turn", 2 July 2012, destroys Billy Cameron:
Right Turn: You are a sympathizer with the government in Cuba.
Cameron: [pause] I respect the sovereignty of Cuba and whatever political changes will happen in Cuba, will come from the Cuban people.
Right Turn: How does it come from the Cuban people if the Cuban people aren’t allowed to vote?
Cameron: The Cuban people vote in elections, my dear man.
Right Turn: And how many parties do they have to choose from?
Cameron: They have one party.
Right Turn: You say there are elections but only one party. Is that something you support?
Cameron: [long pause] Anyone can stand once they are a member of the party. I’ve watched TV in Cuba and there is an awful lot of discussion, an awful lot of politics.
Right Turn: So why don’t they allow the formation of competing parties?
Cameron: Well, eventually they will, I presume…It will be up to the Cuban people to decide that, really.



Irish footballer Andy Reid has actually tattooed Che onto his arm.
Still from video. Also here.
See other people with Che tattoos.
What happens if he ever finds out what Che really stood for?



Who Said What? Che or Hitler?

"These youths walk around with their transistor radios listening to imperialist music!" [i.e. Rock and roll] "They corrupt the morals of young girls - and destroy posters of Che! What do they think? That this is a bourgeois liberal regime? NO! There's nothing liberal in us! We are collectivists! We are communists! There will be no Prague Spring here!"
- Cuban dictator Castro attacking Cuban dissidents and hippies in 1968. Quoted in [Fontova, 2007].
Young Cuban rebels of course hated his vicious dead sidekick Che Guevara.

"I know your tactics! You press people are injecting venom into your articles to damage the revolution. You're either with us or against us. We're not going to allow all the press foolishness that Batista allowed. I can have you executed this very night. How about that!"
- Che Guevara to a journalist he arrested, 1959. Quoted in [Fontova, 2007].

"Oh, how I wanted to cheer! I wanted to jump up and down! To whoop with joy! To throw a party! To hug the very man who had given me the news! ... Everybody in the prison camp wanted to cheer when we heard Che had been killed. ... You could see everyone trying to stifle their joy, because the guards were watching us all very carefully"
- Emilio Izquierdo, an 18 year old prisoner in the Cuban gulag, after a guard informed them of the killing of Che Guevara in Bolivia in 1967. Quoted in [Fontova, 2007].
