Re: “‘Che’ Guevara journey becoming tourist trail” (TNT, 5-30).

Well, let me give you a “tour” of his life. Guevara was an international terrorist and a Stalinist mass murderer. He was a cold-blooded killing machine. He opposed freedom of religion, speech, free election, press, assembly, protest and any other rights. He jailed homosexuals. He supported Cuba’s 1960 repression. He subjugated 6.5 million Cubans. He was a narcissist.

Maybe this “tour” of Guevara’s life transformed the reader to learn more about this evil person.

    In addition to all the repugnant qualities of Che that the writer lists, he was also an abject coward. While he ignored the pleas of his uncounted victims, he begged like a little girl for HIS life to be spared when his time finally came. Disgusting…

  2. madmike272 says:

    I met one of the guys that offed him. He told my wife and me that they had buried his commie butt under a runway being built and sent Castro Che’s hand to confirm the kill to Castro. I always thought is was a war story until they found him.

  3. beerBoy says:

    He was a narcissist.

    Well that takes the cake……..

    ROTFLMAO

  4. He was a mass murder. He spoke of it in his writtings. For people to wear his face on a shirt or whatever shown there true colors. Just Stupid. Why not wear a Pol Pot Shirt?

    Che Obama

  6. Volks253 says:

    Lots of Che’ Guevara experts here, who knew he had so many fans in Tacoma.

    Italianspring demonstrates the typical juvenile attitude of the far right extremists.
    She should be ashamed of herself.

  7. Anybody see the photo of the Cuban flag with the image of Ernesto Che Guevara superimposed on it. It’s on the wall of an office in Barack Obama’s Houston campaign headquarters.

    weird

  8. Volks253 says:

    That wasn’t the campaign headquarters and everyone knows it.

    It’s “weird” that people still spread lies like that.

    Why is that so funny bB?
    I really don’t get it. Do you mean it like this?

    If so, I can laugh with you….if not, then there are actually many items one can buy that will align with the historical blinders some choose to wear.**

    **AND, as an added bonus, they will always look like idiots.

    P.S. to erkhvd…..there really are tshirts available that idolize pol pot, and even Mao too.
    Stupid is, as stupid does….

  10. Volks253 says:

    Like I said,

    “As of this writing there has not been any order from Obama for the flag to be taken down. His campaign issued a statement that said, “This is a volunteer office that is not in any way controlled by the Obama campaign. We were disappointed to see this picture because it is both offensive to many Cuban-Americans — and Americans of all backgrounds — and because it does not reflect Senator Obama’s views. Barack Obama has been very clear in putting forward a Cuba policy that is based on one principle: freedom for the Cuban people”

    Thanks for the link proving me correct imjim!

  11. beerBoy says:

    MoD ending with “He was a narcissist.” seemed a little odd, and therefore amusing to me.

  12. … you missed it pubico… or.. craftsman… or ???

    Cuban Flag with Che Guevara Displayed at Barack Obama Campaign Office-Truth!

    http://www.truthorfiction.com/rumors/o/obama-cuba.htm

    It was an Obama campaign office and Barry apparently was helpless to have it removed… what would we expect from a community organizer…

    btw… say hi to toyota (unless the meds have buried it … in which case… forget I mentioned it…)

    ..and remember, don’t get lazy in the ocean because if you do you could become a non-factor…

  13. Volks253 says:

    imjim, from your link,
    “”As of this writing there has not been any order from Obama for the flag to be taken down. His campaign issued a statement that said, “This is a volunteer office that is not in any way controlled by the Obama campaign. We were disappointed to see this picture because it is both offensive to many Cuban-Americans — and Americans of all backgrounds — and because it does not reflect Senator Obama’s views. Barack Obama has been very clear in putting forward a Cuba policy that is based on one principle: freedom for the Cuban people”

    Which as I stated shows it is not nor was it ever “campaign headquarters” as you stated.
    You lied.
    Your own link proves it.
    All you need to do is admit it, got the stones?
    Did you even read it?

    The rest of your……….whatever that is, I don’t have any idea what you are whining about.
    Maybe the meds you are talking about are yours?

  14. It was an Obama campaign office… ;)

    And Barry was so upset (not) that he didn’t bother (nor did his minions) to have it removed…
    ;)

  15. … oh, I see , your hung up on “headquarters” ….

  16. Volks253 says:

    Your own link proved me correct and you to be a liar. And you’re still at it.
    Thanks again for providing the link imjim.
    Did you learn anything from it or are you still going to be a cry baby?
    Doesn’t it bother you at all that you lie and exaggerate like you do and then get caught time and time again?
    Maybe you shouldn’t do so often.

  17. volks253 will go to any length to try to exonerate Obama and his dirt bag associates. I give him credit for being a dyed-in-the wool believer. The left in this country needs people like volks253 who cannot be swayed by logic. Kind of reminds me of the Mao Red-Book toting nut jobs of the 60’s and 70’s. I never cease to be amazed at the outright lunacy of these people.

  18. Publico says:

    volks points out the truth and it drives jim and frosty crazy. Now volks is nuts for telling the truth. Well, we know what that means.
    It all seems to be off topic.

  19. Publico says:

    The author’s opinion is just that and is only one side of a very complex person’s history. It tells us more about her unwillingness to understand than it does about the subject and that is the sad part.

  20. Volks253 says:

    Frosty, why do you join in with the lies?
    imjim can’t handle it himself you need to jump in to lie for him?

    Point out where I defended anyone for anything.
    I simply pointed out that imjim was telling an untruth, he then provided the proof of it himself.
    He then made it worse for himself with his child like behavior.
    You joined him in that.
    Why?

  21. “As of this writing there has not been any order from Obama for the flag to be taken down. His campaign issued a statement that said, “This is a volunteer ( Obama for president ) office that is not in any way controlled by the Obama campaign.”

    weird…
