While reading this piece from Moonbattery, I started having some deja vu. Now I was a little bit young to really know anything about this Che fellow at the time, but I’ve heard Fidead Castro, Ama Dinnerjacket, Sadman Hussein, Osama bin Later and Huggy Chavez spout the same crap. Nothing new there. But Che was Castro’s hit man, from what I understand, and this plot the FBI found in 1962 is a real preview of what was to come. They hate us and we should never forget that. Still think that Che flag in Obama’s office doesn’t mean anything? Read this, and think again.
Who is this Che Guevara that liberals find so irresistibly appealing? We know that left-wing public school teachers hang his picture in adoration, and Tinseltown bimbos buy baby clothes featuring his trendy likeness, but what exactly does he represent? Cuba expat Humberto Fontova knows as well as anyone, and sums it up nicely at Human Events. A few highlights:
“The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind!” raved Ernesto “Che” Guevara in 1961. “Against those hyenas there is no option but extermination. We will bring the war to the imperialist enemies’ very home, to his places of work and recreation. The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we’ll destroy him! We must keep our hatred against them (the U.S.) alive and fan it to paroxysms!” […]
On November 17, 1962, J Edgar Hoover’s FBI discovered that Che Guevara’s bombast had substance. They infiltrated and cracked a plot by Cuban agents that targeted Macy’s, Gimbel’s, Bloomingdale’s and Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal with a dozen incendiary devices and 500 kilos of TNT. The holocaust was set to go off the following week, the day after Thanksgiving. Che Guevara was the head of Cuba’s “Foreign Liberation Department” at the time.
A little perspective: for their March 2004 Madrid subway blasts, all 10 of them, that killed and maimed almost 2000 people, al-Qaida used a grand total of 100 kilos of TNT. Castro and Che’s agents planned to set off five times that explosive power in some of the biggest department stores on earth, all packed to suffocation and pulsing with holiday cheer on the year’s biggest shopping day. […]
“The solutions to the world’s problems lie behind the Iron Curtain,” stressed Ernesto “Che” Guevara who often signed his correspondence with the moniker “Stalin II.” “If the nuclear missiles had remained we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City,” he boasted. “The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims.”
From the point of view of those still stuck in the nightmare communism made of once-prosperous Cuba, Che Guevara represents poverty, brutality and totalitarianism. But in the USA, he represents something far trendier: raw, unreasoning hatred of America and everything it stands for.
