The victims of Che poster

Ernesto "Che" Guevara (b. June 14, 1928, executed October 9th, 1967) was a Marxist guerrilla leader, with Fidel Castro, during the Cuban Revolution. He has become a cultural icon for liberals, leftists, socialists, communists, illegal aliens[1], and white "hipsters".[2] Despite being a freedom fighter, his image is still used as leftist propaganda which adorns millions of t-shirts and dorm room posters.

Early Life

Guevara was the eldest of five children born in Rosario, Argentina. His schoolmates nicknamed him "pig" (Chancho) because he rarely bathed, and smelled bad.[3] He also enjoyed enjoyed killing dogs.[4].

Cuba Revolution

Portrait by Alberto Korda.

In 1955, while living as a hobo, Guevara met Raul and Fidel Castro to plot the overthrow of the US-backed Fulgencio Batista government in Cuba. Their first revolutionary plan was an assault on Cuba from Mexico. During the war Castro promoted Guevara to commander status, and Guevara won the Battle of Santa Clara. This defeated Batista's forces and allowed the bearded guerrillas to march on towards Havana. On New Years Eve 1958, Batista's forces were defeated and on New Years day, Batista fled to the Dominican Republic. Castro and Guevara became Cuba's new socialist revolutionary leaders. Guevara killed many thousand people, who were "emenies of the revolution". Those "enemies" were Homosexuals, dissidents or AIDS-infected people.[5]

Castro's Cuba

Guevara was appointed commander of the La Cabaña Fortress prison. He oversaw the trial and execution of many former Batista regime officials. Roberto Martin-Perez was imprisoned for 30 years in Castro's dungeon prison. Roberto says "Castro ordered mass murder ... in order to consolidate his power." Guevara, as Castro's chief executioner, relished the slaughter of defenseless men and boys.[6] Guevara became feared for his brutality and ruthlessness. During the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion, Castro ordered Guevara to take up a command post in Western Cuba. He never saw any fighting and did not participate in the Cuban victory. However, he dropped his pistol and shot himself in the face. Guevara was the main proponent of missiles in Cuba and urged Khrushchev to nuke the United States.[7] In December 1964, he gave a speech before the U.N. General Assembly mocking the "imperialism" of the USA, and also freely admitting that he killed and will continue to kill "enemies of the revolution."

The number of executions he ordered is unknown, with conservative estimates ranging from 400 to 2,000 over his lifetime. Unfortunately, lack of records mean that the exact number will probably never be known. What is clear is that he was a violent Communist who thought nothing of killing anyone who opposed him.

“Hatred as the central element of our struggle! Hatred that is intransigent…hatred so violent that it propels a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him violent and cold- blooded killing machine...We reject any peaceful approach. Violence is inevitable. To establish Socialism rivers of blood must flow! The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we’ll destroy him! These hyenas are fit only for extermination. We must keep our hatred alive and fan it to paroxysm! The victory of Socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!”

-- Ernesto "Che" Guevara speaking about Americans, April 1966 Message to the Tricontinental Conference in Havana, Cuba

South America

Guayasamín, La Muerte del Che nº 2, 1978.

Guevara authored an insurgent booklet entitled Guerrilla Warfare. [8] He left Cuba to lead a Communist guerrilla movement in South America. Bolivian soldiers, trained, equipped and guided by U.S. Green Beret and CIA operatives,[9] hunted him down in the Bolivian jungle where he was captured. He cried out "Do not shoot! I am Che Guevara and worth more to you alive than dead." [10] However, the U.S. and Bolivia knew better. He was executed by Mario Terán 2 days later, and his hands were chopped off and put into a jar.

Legacy

Because of the Soviet's all time low popularity at the time, and by extension all of Communism, Che was immortalized by Castro by implementing a romantic version of Che as part of a propaganda campaign shortly after Che's death in Bolivia. One of the people instrumental in this campaign was French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, who himself was a Communist in bed with the KGB, having referred to Che Guevara as "the most complete human being of our time." Ion Mihai Pacepa had heard of the propaganda campaign back when he was still serving the Romanian communist party.[11]

Quotes

"At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love. It is impossible to think of a genuine revolutionary lacking this quality."

"In capitalist society individuals are controlled by a pitiless law usually beyond their comprehension. The alienated human specimen is tied to society as a whole by an invisible umbilical cord: the law of value. This law acts upon all aspects of one's life, shaping its course and destiny. The difficult thing for someone not living the experience of the revolution to understand is this close dialectical unity between the individual and the mass, in which the mass, as an aggregate of individuals, is interconnected with its leaders."

"Instead they must dedicate themselves to study, work and military service! Youth should learn to think and act as a mass. It is criminal to think of individuals! Individualism must disappear from Cuba!"[12]
