cheChe Guevara wasn’t just a sociopathic serial killer, he was sickeningly racist

As liberals use the tragic mass killings at a Charleston, S.C. church to build their fundraising lists with calls to ban the Confederate battle flag, there’s one piece of cloth with a racist symbol liberals won’t be giving up any time soon.

The Che Guevara t-shirt.

Guevara is hailed as an icon by leftists for his service as a military guerilla commander for Communist dictators like Cuba’s Fidel Castro.  A classic left-wing trust fund baby, Guevara discovered radical leftism while on a motorcycle journey during college.

Guevara, an Argentinian of Spanish and Irish descent, also really didn’t like black people.

“The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations,” wrote Guevara in his diary in 1952.

“The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing,” wrote Guevara.

“We’re going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the revolution. By which I mean: nothing,” said Guevara in 1959.

Guevara’s virulent racism was “stereotypical of white, especially Argentine, arrogance and condescension,” Jon Lee Anderson, a staff writer for the New Yorker, who wrote Ché Guevara: A Revolutionary Life, tells PolitiFact.

Like other leftists, Guevara later embraced blacks, but only out of political opportunism.  He needed the support of black Cubans to avoid capture and execution by anti-Communist forces.

But because Guevara is a leftist, his racism is overlooked.  Liberal celebrities like Jay-Z, Carlos Santana and the left-wing band Rage Against The Machine plaster their work with Christ-like Guevara icons.

That’s doubly ironic because Guevara wasn’t just racist, he also wanted to ban popular music and even executed children who listened to The Beatles.

After Castro imposed his Communist dictatorship on Cuba, Guevara suggested banning jazz and rock and roll, which he considered poisonous “imperialist” influences.

As commander of Cuba’s brutal prison camps, the first people rounded up were Cubans caught listening to rock music, or roqueros.  Guevara ordered many to be executed without trial.

The popular liberal icon also laid the foundation for the mass execution of gay people.

“Che presided over the Cuban Revolution’s first firing squads. He founded Cuba’s ‘labor camp’ system—the system that was eventually employed to incarcerate gays, dissidents, and AIDS victims,” writes Slate magazine.

Guevara finally kicked the oxygen habit in 1967, when he was captured and executed by Bolivians.

Will liberals eradicate their own symbol of racism, murder and execution of gay people?

Unlikely.  Liberals will keep their own banner of hate flying high.
