Be Cool and Ignorant just like Che-Z

Last week Will Witt for Prager University took a mike and camera to the University of California at San Diego, where he found himself at the Che Café.

Yes, the Che Café is a woke coffee shop, vegan restaurant and hang-out for the cool, hip and proletariat. Trump supporters are NOT welcome. Shocking!

And it’s full of students who are completely clueless about the deeds and beliefs of the Café’s namesake, one Che Guevara. Not a single student Will interviewed had any idea of what an unrepentant monster Che was.

So, before the video, let me just highlight some of Che Guevara’s brightest moments.

To see supposedly enlightened college students, especially black college students, walking around with Che’s face emblazoned on a t-shirt, is the height of stupidity. read more

U.N. Loves Che

The United Nations’ cultural body is facing a backlash after it decided to honor the “life and works” of the Marxist Argentinian militant Che Guevara, a controversial figure long viewed as a hero of the left.

The U.N. Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) announced earlier this week that it would include Guevara’s “life and works” in its 2013 “Memory of the World Register,” which codifies historical material that has a “world significance and outstanding universal value.”

Guevara’s works were submitted to the register by Bolivia and Cuba in 2012. They were accepted earlier this week and endorsed by the director-general of UNESCO.

The announcement sparked an outcry from Cuban-American members of Congress and former U.S. officials who said the United Nations is sullying its reputation by honoring a revolutionary figure who murdered many innocent civilians.

“This cretin described himself as a ‘killing machine,’ and he worked in the service of a totalitarian regime,” Roger Noriega, a former State Department official and U.S. ambassador to the Organization for American States, told the Washington Free Beacon.

“The fact that he is an icon of the left is merely ridiculous,” Noriega said. “That his works would be honored by UNESCO is more evidence of the breathtaking hypocrisy and profound ignorance of that institution. The U.N. should be ashamed of perpetuating this diabolical myth for another generation. “

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R., Fla.), a Cuban-American member of Congress, said in a statement that the UNESCO award borders on self-parody.

Is Jay-Z “Lazy, Drunk and Stinky?” Let’s Ask His T-shirt Icon, Che Guevara

 

“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and drink, the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent…The Negro has maintained his racial purity by his well known habit of avoiding baths.”

Che Guevara wrote these lines in his famous “Motorcycle Diaries.” But you will search Robert Redford’s famous movie based on the book in utter vain for their mention. Redford, this muscular champion of “artistic freedom,” by the way, meekly acquiesced in screening The Motorcycle Diaries for Che’s widow (who heads Cuba’s Che Guevara Studies Center) and Fidel Castro for their approval before release.

“N**ger!” taunted my jailers between tortures,” reported the world’s longest suffering black political prisoner about his suffering. “We pulled you down from the trees and cut off your tail!” laughed my torturers. For months I was naked in a 6 x 4 foot cell. That’s four feet high, so you couldn’t stand. But I felt a great freedom inside myself. I refused to commit spiritual suicide.”

That wasn’t Nelson Mandela.  No, the prisoner was a black Cuban named Eusebio Peñalver, whose incarceration and torture at the hands of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara’s Stalinist regime stretched to 29 years, surpassing Nelson Mandela’s record in time behind bars and probably quintupling the horrors suffered by Mandela during this period.

Marxist EPA

Have you ever encountered an ill-informed lefty sporting a Che Guevara T-shirt, thinking it’s just the latest fashion craze? Who’s next, Stalin?

Well that T-shirt wearing fool has nothing on the EPA.

EPA Accidentally Celebrates Che, the Terrorist Who Craved to Take Down the U.S. (It was no Accident)

by:

(additions from the Common Constitutionalist)

Last week the Environmental Protection Agency kicked-off its celebration of “Hispanic Heritage Month” with a staff wide e-mail message featuring an image of Marxist Revolutionary Che Guevara along with his famous slogan, “Hasta la Victoria Siempre.”

The EPA has apologized for the internal memo and says it was mistakenly sent by an individual staffer. (Question: How does one mistakenly upload and send out an image of Che Guevara. Oops, how did that picture get there? Oops, again, I just sent it to 17,000 people. So, am I correct in therefore concluding the memo was only supposed to seen by other like-minded Marxists at the EPA?)

While the message celebrating Che was “accidently” blasted to over 17,000 employees, let’s hope these U.S. civil servants are aware of some of Che Guevara’s other slogans:

  • “The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind!”
  • “Against those hyenas [Americans] there is no option but extermination!”
  • ” We will bring the war to the imperialist enemies’ very home, to his places of work and recreation. The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we’ll destroy him! (the U.S.)”
  • “We must keep our hatred [against the U.S.] alive and fan it to paroxysm!”
  • “If the nuclear missiles had remained (in Cuba) we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City. The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!”

The lapse of judgment by a taxpayer supported U.S. government employee to even think about passing this message of Che celebration to one other colleague shows that, as usual, most are unaware or just view criticisms of Che as a silly obsession by the hyper-sensitive. (Another option is that many of them at the EPA are of like-mind)

But make no mistake, Che Guevara had a hate-obsession with the U.S. and his true actions in the name of this hate need to be brought to the forefront, rather than the commercialization of his likeness. Most of the defenseless Cubans he murdered in cold blood were killed because he thought they were affiliated with the U.S. (“U.S.–Backed” Batista, the CIA, etc.) In fact, many of the men (and boys, and some women) his regime murdered had no affiliation with Batista whatsoever and the vast majority had fought the Batista regime—but alas, as non-communists.

Unfortunately, this is likely not the first or last time Che will be celebrated by Americans. Since the U.S. government insists on these ethnic celebrations here’s an idea: instead of celebrating a foreign “Hispanic” who dreamed of incinerating and entombing millions of U.S. citizens and obliterating the U.S. as a political entity, why not celebrate a U.S. citizen of Hispanic heritage who voluntarily put his life repeatedly on the line to defend the U.S.! Better still; this American of Hispanic heritage played a key role in capturing the foreign Hispanic who craved to murder millions of Americans!

I know this sounds crazy, Obama administration. But it just might work!

EPA, meet Felix Rodriguez. Some background: As a 19 year-old volunteer for Brigada 2506 (the Bay of Pigs freedom-fighters), Cuban-born Felix Rodriguez infiltrated Communist Cuba weeks before what came to be known as the Bay of Pigs invasion, organizing underground freedom-fighters, planning the sabotage of key roads and bridges, staying a step ahead of the Castro secret police and their KGB coaches. Almost half of his Band-of-Brothers in the infiltration teams died in front of Soviet-armed firing squads, after KGB-tutored torture. Felix knew the odds. He volunteered anyway, along with hundreds of other young Cuban exiles of the time.

After the Bay of Pigs freedom-fighters were left to die by the Kennedy Administration at the bloody Bay of Pigs beachhead, Rodriguez again foiled the Communist dragnet by slipping into the Venezuelan embassy and escaping a year later to Florida. After the freedom-fighters were again betrayed in the Kennedy- Khrushchev swindle (that pledged the U.S. to protect Castro’s Soviet beachhead) Rodriguez, along with hundreds of his Bay of Pigs Band of Brothers enlisted in the U.S. Army.

On the day he gained his U.S. citizenship in 1969, Rodriguez celebrated the honor by volunteering for combat in Vietnam. “I lost the country of my birth to Communism,” he explained. “I know freedom must be protected. And I feel I owe it to my adopted country.”

Felix flew over 300 helicopter combat missions in Vietnam, and was shot down five times. He won the coveted Intelligence Star for Valor from the CIA and nine Crosses for Gallantry from the Republic of South Vietnam. Later he battled Communists in El Salvador using a helicopter “mobile strike unit” scheme he developed in Vietnam. He flew over 100 combat missions in Central America, captured the FMLF’s (Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front ) top commander and helped crush those Communist-terrorists decisively. All this was volunteer work.

Later, as a CIA operative, Rodriguez played a key role in tracking down and capturing Che Guevara in Bolivia and was the last to question him. “Finally I was face to face with the assassin of thousands of my countrymen, of hundreds of my patriot friends,” he recalls. But his mission was trying to save Che’s life, to transport him to the Southern Command in Panama for questioning. Alas, Felix’s Bolivian allies viewed the matter differently. And it was, after all, their nation under Communist attack. So they decided on a policy that has since become a favorite among Americans who encounter endangered species on their property: “Shoot, shovel, and shut-up.”

Castro really wants Felix Rodriguez’ head and has sent hit-team, after hit-team, after hit-team (including one lent to him by his late chum Yasser Arafat) to murder Felix and his family in Florida. In May 1975 General Joaquin Zenteno, a Bolivian officer who worked with Rodriguez on Che’s capture, was murdered on a Paris street.

“You’re next,” heard Felix Rodriguez when he picked up the phone a few days later. “Click”

“When you get to Miami,” Cuban political prisoner Roberto Martin-Perez heard from one of his jailers the day of his release in 1987, “tell your friend Felix Rodriguez his days are numbered. It’s one of Fidel’s top priorities.”

But Felix Rodriguez has foiled all of Castro’s murder plots against him, and until last year served as the proud President of The Bay of Pigs Veterans Association.

Shall we hold our breath for a “Hispanic” of this caliber to be celebrated by Obama’s EPA?

Oh, and by the way; if you ever come across a black youth sporting a Che shirt, ask him if he’s familiar with these 2 quips. Seems old Che was not too fond of blacks.

We’re going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the revolution. By which I mean: nothing.” -Che Guevera

“The nigger is indolent and lazy, and spends his money on frivolities, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent.”- Che Guevara
