President Obama in his Cuba trip went to visit the monument to Cuban national hero Jose Marti, yet was photographed with a giant mural of Ernesto “Che” Guevara right behind him.
Already, his visit is being mocked on many levels.
An outline silhouette of Ernesto “Che” Guevara looked down on the President.
Here’s a little history about Che:
1. He was a blood-thirsty sadist and mass-murderer, and had no problem hiding it:
“A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.”
In Cuba, he forced men and women into slave labor camps. Combined with the number of people he personally killed, around 14,000 died at Che’s hands.
2. He was an embittered, virulent atheist. His one religious? Soviet-style Communism, or Marxism with a gun.
He held a deep disdain of religion in general:
“In fact, if Christ himself stood in my way, I, like Nietzsche, would not hesitate to squish him like a worm.”
Che also persecuted the Catholic Church, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and even African-style cults. During the Castro invasion of Cuba, priests were deported or fled the country, and some religious officials attempted to take back the country in the Bay of Pigs fiasco.
3. Che was an unapologetic racist. Here are some of his most offensive remarks:
“We’re going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the revolution. By which I mean: nothing.”
“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.”
While Che helped topple Cuba’s corrupt Bautista regime, Fidel Castro relied on this violent Communist enforcer to impose a more corrupt, violent, and repressive regime on the Cuban people.
And now the world is witnessing the American President, who is supposed to represent the land of the free and the home of the brave, standing underneath it, paying allegiance.
