On October 9, 1967, the Argentine guerrilla Ernesto “Che” Guevara died in Bolivia. More than half a century later, his life legacy continues to be filled with lies by the left to exalt a supposed progressive record that couldn’t be further from the truth.
It is imperative that everyone knows the real Che Guevara. Here at El American, we want to remember the phrases of the guerrilla leader that truly marked the world. His words show that “Che”, far from being an admirable figure and an example to follow, was a murderer, a racist, and a homophobe, who was willing to go to the lengths to impose his radical ideology.
Pedro Corzo, a historian and Cuban journalist, wrote a book on the violent thinking of Ernesto “Che” Guevara. One of the most important findings is the content of a letter sent to his father in which the revolutionary admitted that he liked to murder.
“I ended the problem with a .32 caliber pistol, in the right side of his brain. He gasped for a while and was dead. When proceeding to seize his belongings, I could not remove the watch tied with a chain to his belt, so he told me in a voice without trembling, far from fear: ‘Rip it off, boy…’ I did that and his belongings were now mine,” says one of the parts of the letter.
“If the rockets had remained, we would have used them all and directed them against the very heart of the U.S., including New York, in our defense against aggression. But we haven’t got them, so we shall fight with what we’ve got” said Che—according to TIME—to the socialist London Daily Worker to confirm that he wanted to attack New York.
Similarly, the Argentine was in favor of capital punishment. UNESCO released June 14 Ernesto Guevara’s opening speech at the 1964 UN General Assembly. In his words, he admitted that the Cuban revolution shot people.
“We have to say here what is a known truth and we have always expressed it before the world. Shootings, yes. We have shot, we shot, we will shoot and we will continue shooting as long as necessary. Our fight is a fight of death”.
A Homophone and Racist who Claimed Blacks did not Bathe
Another phrase that demonstrates Che’s wickedness and the hypocrisy of progressivism that exalts him was the one he said against homosexuals. For Guevara, gays were “perverts” and “incapable” who did not serve the revolution.
He also showed his contempt for black people. “The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the Portuguese. Contempt and poverty unite them in the daily struggle, but the different way of facing life separates them completely ”.
An Advocate for Mass Murdering of Enemies
In the same way, he was a great promoter of hatred as a tool to impose communist ideas. “Hatred as an element of struggle; unbending hatred for the enemy, which pushes a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold-blooded killing machine. This is what our soldiers must become.”
His taste for killing is praised by his followers today. For example, the left-wing Spanish politician and founder of United We Can, Pablo Iglesias, published one of the guerrilla’s phrases and said that cowards are all those who criticize Che out of murderous instinct.
Guevara also argued that they should fight and have hatred against those who did not share their political ideas. “Let’s be the nightmare of those who try to take away our dreams,” he said.
There is only one feeling greater than the love of freedom: the hatred of those who take it awayPhrase attributed to Che Guevara
Finally, if it had not been clear that Che was an enemy of freedom and human dignity, another of his phrases that must be remembered is the one in which he assured that the free press must be eliminated because it is a danger to the revolution. .
