Che chic and reality
Posted by: McQ on Friday, June 08, 2007

Not that the clueless who continue to fawn over and wear his image will notice or care:
- Twice, Che plotted terrorist attacks against New York City. In November 1962, the FBI cracked a terrorist plot by Cuban agents who targeted Macy’s, Gimbel’s, Bloomingdale’s and Grand Central Terminal. They planned to blow up those landmarks with 12 incendiary devices and 500 kilos of TNT the day after Thanksgiving. Several months before visiting New York in December 1964 and being feted by the toast of the city’s intelligentsia, Che hatched a plan with the Black Liberation Army to blow up the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Bell and the Washington Monument. The plotters were infiltrated in 1965 by a sharp-eyed NYPD cadet.

- Che detested rock and roll and railed against “long hairs,” “lazy youths,” and homosexuals. At one point, he wrote that the young must always “listen carefully - and with the utmost respect – to the advice of their elders who held governmental authority.”

- Che sidelined black Cubans and mocked those who were part of the revolutionary movement. He once told radio host Luis Pons, “We’re going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the revolution. By which I mean: nothing.”

- Che personally ordered 700 executions by firing squad, which he supervised at his jungle headquarters in Cuba. He also hosted book burnings, torching thousands of books owned by suspect intellectuals and librarians.
These tidbits from the latest book on Ernesto Che Guevara, and they don't conform well to the mythical Che so many on the left love to lionize. May have to get it. The book, by Humberto Fontova, is called “Exposing the Real Che Guevara and the Useful Idiots Who Idolize Him”.

In fact, if Christ himself stood in my way, I, like Nietzsche, would not hesitate to squish him like a worm” - Che Guevara.

Yup ... just the type with which I want to associate myself.

In 15-25 years when the 9/11 conspiracy theories have completely taken root in the youth of America, I predict you will see college students wearing Osama Bin Laden T-shirts the way young men wear them in Pakistan today.

In 15-25 years when the 9/11 conspiracy theories have completely taken root in the youth of America, I predict you will see college students wearing Osama Bin Laden T-shirts the way young men wear them in Pakistan today.
Occasionally when I see a kid wearing a Che t-shirt, and I’ll ask them what they about him and his ideas. The answers so far have been universally that they have no idea, even when they posit an answer, the answer itself shows that they have no idea.

I toss them an idea of what this country would look like if the icon on their t-shirt had his way, but I don’t think any of them have quite grasped this either.

I am sure I will eventually run into someone who knows what Che would do and approves of it, but so far, these kids don’t really know the difference between wearing a Jim Morrison t-shirt or a Che Guevara t-shirt, they just wear it because they think it’s cool... and it is if they pick the Jim Morrison t-shirt.

I doubt the OBL shirts will ever come into vogue here, simply because their are enough people who would punch the lights out of these kids if they did. Most adults don’t have a much of a grasp on on who Che Guevara was, but in 20 years, we (me, you, us) will still have a very vivid memory of OBL and 9/11.

Hmm...while we are on the topic of anti-Che t-shirts, let me shamelessly plug my own:

Anyone know how the NY Times reported on the cracking of those terrorists plots? Front page or buried?
