Castro’s Video Game Outrage

Pages: 1 2

Yet, Che was among the Cuban Revolution’s most savage leaders. “Hatred is the central element of our struggle,” he raved in his 1966 message to the Tricontinental Conference in Havana. He continued:

Hatred so violent that it propels a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him a violent and cold- blooded killing machine…We reject any peaceful approach. We must keep our hatred alive and fan it to paroxysm! Violence is inevitable. To establish Socialism rivers of blood must flow.

And later:

My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood… Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any surrendered enemy that falls in my hands! With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!

Rigoberto Hernandez was 17 when Che’s soldiers dragged him from his cell in La Cabana prison, jerked his head back to gag him, and started taking him to the stake. Little “Rigo,” as he was called, professed his innocence to the very bloody end. But his pleas were garbled and difficult to understand. His struggles while being gagged and bound to the stake were also awkward. The boy had been a janitor in a Havana high school and was mentally retarded. His single mother had pleaded his case with hysterical sobs. She had begged, beseeched, and finally proven to his “prosecutors” that his was a case of mistaken identity. Her only son, a boy in such a condition, couldn’t possibly have been “a CIA agent planting bombs,” as he was accused.

A cry rang out, “Fuego!” and the firing squad volley shattered Rigo’s little bent body as he moaned and struggled against his binds, blindfold, and gag. Remember the gallant Che Guevara’s instructions to his revolutionary courts: “judicial evidence is an archaic bourgeois detail. We execute from revolutionary conviction.”

And yet, tomorrow Cuban children will chant, “We will be like Che!”

Is this not sociopathic?

    Whoa, my brother has just finished this game, it looks awesome, personally , I am a huge fan of CAll of Duty series, it seems these guys are more than just aware that the communist devil is more than just alive and kicking, and what you ´ve got to do is to, well, buckle up and shoot to kill, pure and simple. It is sad that the only true liberal form of art remains, willy-nilly, computer games/industry, unsullied by leftist propaganda. And the most profitable to top it all, far surpassing anything else that H-Wood throws at ya (like M.Moore´s docufiction, which in my country is considered documentary evidence!!).

    Sounds like the game's mission should have had the option of assassinating Che slowly and painfully…

    There is a certain amount of truth in that violent video games can cause “sociopathic attitudes in American children and adolescents. This is virtual reality and no the the real world and sometimes children and adolescents get their values from the former with today's non judgemental progressive education system.

    The first level of this video game involves a (spoiler alert) failed attempt on Castro's life. This rest of the game's main story has nothing to do with Castro.
    Besides, there is another part of the game that Castro should actually be excited by. In a bonus level (separate from the main story) Fidel Castro teams up with JFK, Nixon and McNamara to battle zombies in the Pentagon. The character of Fidel Castro blows away zombie bureaucrats while shouting revolutionary propaganda.

    Personally,I never liked Fidel Castro. In my opinion,he's a vicious monster who deserves every bit of condemnation he gets. It's a shame when the only way that this beast gets what he deserves is in a video game. He deserves that and much more in real life.

  • C.B.Harder

    What(if anything) does Castro say about his socio pathologic friend Ernesto Guevera whom he Glorifies all over Cuba.

  • Goggles Pisano

    I wonder what Castro thought of his appearance in The Simpsons?

    Castro: "Ah, they're not so bad. They even named a street after me in San Francisco."
    (an assistant whispers in his ear)
    Castro: "It's full of WHAT?!!"

  • Bear from Russia

    It is very sad when a video game speculates on policy and history. CoD is a good example of rude propaganda. I know many of you will tell that it is just a video game, but it is not so simple. Three last parts of CoD are full of Russophobia. It shows Russians as terrible monsters who only desire to destroy the bright and shiny USA. And that mission on Baikonur. How dare this bastard game developers to laugh at this tragedy? It was the most terrible tragedy in s history of space exploration.
    What if someone makes a video game where brave muslim terrorists blow twin towers in New York?


    "bear from russia" video games should hold the same standards as movies. period. Games should not be made for kids, but rather, kids should be kept from playing adult games, just as they are kept from attending R-rated movies. Besides, they are the best first person shooter games up to date, besides MAYBE halo, which isn't even based on our galaxy
