May 1 Protestors - Be Careful of Che Guevara

Did you happen to see many of the protestors carrying photos of Che Guevara? Perhaps the dashing photo of Che is what turns people on to him (it is the most reproduced photo in the world) I can't figure it out.

Che was a totalitarian. He achieved nothing but disaster.

Che was a mainstay of the hardline pro-Soviet faction, and his faction won. Che presided over the Cuban Revolution's first firing squads. He founded Cuba's "labor camp" system—the system that was eventually employed to incarcerate gays, dissidents, and AIDS victims.

Che was an enemy of freedom, and yet he has been erected into a symbol of freedom.

I wonder if people who stand up to cheer Che Guevara, will ever give a damn about the oppressed people of Cuba—will ever lift a finger on behalf of the Cuban liberals and dissidents.

Be careful what you wish for, Che Guevara was not a good man.

Some photo's of Che Guevara from the marches on May 1 here at Michelle Malkin.

My guess on helping the Cubans... Nope.
