Exposing the Real Che Guevara: And the Useful Idiots Who Idolize Him
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
The perfect conservative contrast to the upcoming movie about Che.
Hollywood, Madison Avenue, and the mainstream media celebrate Ernesto ?Che? Guevara as a saint, a sex symbol, and a selfless martyr. But their ideas about Che ? whose face adorns countless T-shirts and posters ? are based on the lies of Fidel Castro?s murderous dictatorship.
Che?s hipster fans are classic ?useful idiots,? the name Stalin gave to foolish Westerners who parroted his lies about communism. And their numbers will only increase after a new biopic is released this fall, starring Benicio Del Toro.
But as Humberto Fontova reveals in this myth-shattering book, Che was actually a bloodthirsty executioner, a military bumbler, a coward, and a hypocrite. In fact, Che can be called the godfather of modern terrorism.
? How he longed to destroy New York City with nuclear missiles.
? How he persecuted gays, blacks, and religious people.
? How he loved material wealth and private luxuries, despite his image as an ascetic.
Are Che fans like Angelina Jolie, Jesse Jackson, Carlos Santana, and Johnny Depp too ignorant to realize they?ve been duped? Or too anti-American to care?
kidnap Orlando Enrizo and haul him back to Cuba for a spectacular show trial and public firing-squad execution, much like the famous trial held in February 1959 for Cuban army commander Jesus Sosa Blanco for which the international press was invited to attend. The kidnappers had been jubilant with the assignment and expressed their excitement to Che himself. “They were excited with the assignment all right,” says Enrizo, “because it allowed them to finally scoot out of Cuba, something they’d
library. Diaz-Verson, a renowned Cuban journalist, scholar, and former public official, was president of Cuba’s Anti-Communist League, a private research organization and an early version of a think tank. Since the mid-1930s—labeled by Eugene Lyons as the “Red Decade”—the league had devoted itself to the study of communism. In the course of their investigations Diaz-Verson and his staff compiled detailed lists of Communist Party members and agents (both card carriers and secret) and their
Times, the very paper Anderson has written for. “Che did not once betray his basic loyalties,” wrote Ariel Dorfman in Time. “Che’s life demonstrates conclusively that he was not a hypocrite,” 4 wrote Christopher Hitchens in the New York Review of Books. Professor Dorfman and Hitchens might have a look at that New York Times edition themselves. In early 1959, Diaz-Verson’s work exposed Castro and Che’s treachery with a brilliant spotlight. When the alarmed U.S. ambassador to Cuba in late 1958,
were summarily executed during this rural rebellion. Here was a genuine rebellion with true battles. Cuba’s genuine Bravehearts, Davy Crocketts, and Patrick Henrys fought a desperate and lonely war against a Soviet-backed enemy, against outrageous odds. They died unknown to the world, many summarily by firing squad. Those interested in plugging this yawning gap in their historical knowledge should forget the mainstream media and academia.

Castañeda. Che Guevara himself berated the United Fruit Company as “the Green Octopus.”23 In fact, in 1958—after only fifty-five years of independence following an utterly devastating war against Spain—only 9 percent of Cuba’s invested capital was American, and less than one-third of Cuba’s sugar production was by U.S. companies. Of Cuba’s 161 sugar mills, only 40 were U.S.-owned. And only a fraction of these were owned by United Fruit.24 Some “octopus.” “I think there is not a country in the
