Here is a very detailed recap of the facts around Obama and what some bloggers are calling the Guevaragate, courtesy of Henry & Babalú Blog.
But here comes Humberto Fontova with a magistral KO in Newsmax.com (thanks to Babalú) on the Obama campaing supporters sporting the image of Che Guevara.
Here are some nuts & bolts, for those needing higher doses of "repeat after me" para salir de la ignorancia en la que viven:
- "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!"
- A little perspective: for the March 2004 Madrid subway blasts, all 10 of them that killed and maimed almost 2,000 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 the 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."
Thanks, Humberto, for you diligent work to erase the masses' ignorance (or complejo de avestruz, should I say?)
PD/ What's the no-news in here?
The MSM kept mum, but the conservative blogoshere spread the story. Intrepid blogger Henry Gomez (Babalu Blog), uncovered 15 different pages of Che Guevara well-wishers on the official Obama campaign site.
Hummm, why am I not surprised?
