Guevara: Murderer, Not Hero

Tweet [1]

Guevara [2]  This picture of protestors in Mar del Plata accompanies this New York Times article [3].

Regardless of your opinion of George Bush, of free trade, or of the war in Iraq, it’s impossible to sympathize with people who parade under Che Guevara banners.  Guevara was a murderous, hateful creep.

If his many fans are ignorant of this fact, there’s every reason to suppose that these protestors are equally ignorant of the positions they espouse.  And I recommend that they read this superb essay [4] on Guevara by Alvaro Vargas Llosa.

If, on the other hand, they actually know about Guevara, then these people, too, are hateful.

Either way, they deserve no respect.
