U.S. Government Celebrates Terrorist Che Guevara

Pages: 1 2

Just recently, the Environmental Protection Agency kicked-off its celebration of “Hispanic Heritage Month” with an e-mail message featuring Che Guevara along with his famous slogan, “Hasta la Victoria  Siempre.”

Let’s hope these U.S. civil servants were innocently unaware of some of Che Guevara’s other slogans:

  • “The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind!”
  • “Against those hyenas [Americans] 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 [the U.S.]!”
  • “We must keep our hatred [against the U.S.] alive and fan it to paroxysm! “
  • “If the nuclear missiles had remained [in Cuba] we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City. The victory of socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!”

(Full documentation for all of the above here.)

U.S. taxpayers pay U.S. government employees to celebrate the author of the charming sentiments above. Fine. As usual only a few Americans of Cuban heritage have complained about the EPA’s “gaffe.”  As usual, most of the people Che Guevara craved to incinerate view this EPA “gaffe” as a silly obsession by hyper-sensitive and loudmouthed Cuban-Americans.

But Che Guevara’s hate-obsession was actually the U.S.  Most of the defenseless Cubans he murdered in cold blood, he murdered because he thought they were affiliated with the U.S. (“U.S.–backed” Batista, the CIA, etc.) In fact, probably 90 percent of the men (and boys, and some women) his regime murdered had no affiliation with Batista whatsoever and most had fought the Batista regime—but alas, as non-Communists.

Since the U.S. government insists on these ethnic celebrations here’s an idea: Instead of  celebrating a foreign “Hispanic” who dreamed of incinerating and entombing millions of U.S. citizens and obliterating the U.S. as a political entity, why not celebrate a U.S. citizen of Hispanic heritage who voluntarily put his life repeatedly on the line to defend the United States? Better still, this American of Hispanic heritage played a key role in capturing the foreign Hispanic who craved to murder millions of Americans.

EPA, meet Felix Rodriguez. Some background:

As a 19-year-old volunteer for Brigada 2506 (the Bay of Pigs freedom-fighters), Cuban-born Felix Rodriguez infiltrated Communist Cuba weeks before what came to be known as the Bay of Pigs invasion, organizing underground freedom-fighters, planning the sabotage of key roads and bridges, staying a step ahead of the Castro’s secret police and their KGB coaches. Almost half of his band-of-brothers in the infiltration teams died in front of Soviet-armed firing squads, after KGB-tutored torture. Felix knew the odds. He volunteered anyway, along with hundreds of other young Cuban exiles of the time.

    There is a reason Che ‘s picture was on the wall of Obama ‘s campaign office in Chicago….because there is not a dime ‘s worth of difference in the sociopathology of the two of them…

  • Gamaliel

    The EPA is cutting off energy. Could they share some of the goals of Che Guevera?

  • cruiser navy 67

    Another leftist hero for the obama administration. The EPA chose of a hero is a slap in the face for all Latin Americans.

  • Rifleman

    It's fitting in a way, since EPA victims don't get a jury trial. The EPA wants the rest of the power che had, so like his victims, theirs don't get any trail at all.

    Thank you, Mr. Fontova for exposing the truth about Che Guevara and the horrors he committed in Cuba and elsewhere. Why do some people and some organizations keep honoring that Communist thug Che Guevara? Che was nothing but trouble. He founded the Soviet-backed Castro regime that would rule and oppress Cuba for more than a half-century (that regime survives to the present day). Oh and by the way, the U.S. was one of the first countries to formally give diplomatic recognition to the Castro regime. Also, before Batista gave up power and fled Cuba, the U.S. government placed an embargo on the Batista regime (so-called "embargo" critics have it half-right. There was a U.S. embargo on Cuba, but it was placed against the Batista regime). In addition, Batista was denied exile in the U.S. and was not even allowed to set foot on U.S. soil. Contrary to the Castro/"academics"/MSM leftist propaganda, pre-Castro Cuba was much better off economically than now. Manuel Marquez-Sterling's book, Cuba 1952-1959: The True Story of Castro's Rise to Power, is a must read, because it exposes the truth about what Cuba was really like during the 1950s. For over 50 years, America has been very generous with the regime in Cuba, but the Castro regime falsely accuses the U.S. government of trying to "undermine the revolution" That is a lie. In fact, it's the other way around. For over 50 years, the Castro regime has been trying to undermine and transform the United States into a communist country. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Missile Crisis and Castro's failed plot to destroy parts of Manhattan during the holiday season. The Castro regime has supplied and/or financed foreign terrorist organizations like the FARC, the ELN, the PLO, the IRA and other notorious terrorist organizations. The Castro regime has also supplied and/or financed domestic terrorist organizations like the Weather Underground, the Black Liberation Army, the Black Panthers, May 19th organization and other radical/terrorist organizations. In Puerto Rico, the Castro regime has supplied and/or financed the communist separatist organizations like the FALN (though the FALN mainly carried out terrorist activities in the U.S. mainland), Los Macheteros and other terrorist organizations whose goal was to force the island of Puerto Rico to secede from the U.S. in order to install a totalitarian Stalinist dictatorship in Puerto Rico (despite the fact that the majority of Puerto Ricans support either statehood for Puerto Rico, or the current Commonwealth status). Because of the Castro regime's support for the communist separatist organizations in Puerto Rico, many pro-statehood activists in Puerto Rico support the Cuban dissidents' struggle to free Cuba from the Castro regime. The New Progressive Party (which supports Puerto Rico becoming the 51st state of the United States) and its leader, Luis Fortuno (the Governor of Puerto Rico) support the Cuban dissidents' struggle to free Cuba and to bring democracy to Cuba. As for Castro's mainland activity, he has tried to undermine America's national security for a long time. From Ana Belen Montes to the so-called "Cuban Five" to the Elian Gonzalez story to the Cuban government's influence in the MSM/Academia and in international organizations like the United Nations, the Castro regime has tried long and hard to discredit America and its democratic system. It is time for the American people to know the truth and to expose the Castro regime in Cuba for what it is: a totalitarian Stalinist dictatorship which despises Americans and democracy. It is time to free Cuba from the Castro dictatorship.

      "He founded the Soviet-backed Castro regime that would rule and oppress Cuba"
      Actually that was the US's doing. The Cuban revolution was not a socialist revolution, it was a popular one. In fact the word socialism was not mentioned with regard to it for 2 years. Before all of that Fidel and Camilo and a few others had come to the US seeking support and they treated him like some upstart. If you want a good balanced overview of Che's life read the book by Jon Lee ANderson, Che: A Revolutionary Life./ I do not disagree that Che had many flaws. But it is difficult to compare his actions with say ours in Vietnam, or Chile, or Guatemala or Venezuela, or Iran and so on. And now take a good look at the FACTS of 9-11 http://www.ajl.smugmug.com/911 and tell me how Islamists did that? I am not pro anything but peace and justice for All. But facts are facts and fair is fair. Rarely is any complex issue as black and white as pundits and propagandists imagine.

        The Castro regime is notorious for lying to the world about politics, news and history in general. While the United States did support Castro's efforts to overthrow Batista (by placing an embargo on Batista) and recognize the Castro regime almost immediately after Batista fled Cuba, Castro kept a low-profile on his communist connections throughout the 1950s. Raul Castro (Fidel's brother) had a KGB card as early as 1953. Obviously, the Castro brothers needed to hide their communist/KGB connections in order to get American (State Department, CIA and the media) support for their so-called "revolution". In a letter in 1955, Fidel Castro stated that "Propaganda is the heart of our struggle". Fidel Castro is a master of propaganda. The United States broke diplomatic relations with Castro's Cuba in 1961 (two years after Castro took power) after a long series of baseless, false accusations. Even before he took power, Fidel Castro regarded the United States as an enemy. In a 1957 letter to a friend, Castro wrote, "War with the United States is my true destiny. When this war is over, I'll start that much bigger and wider war". Also, Jon Lee Anderson's book on Che Guevara is heavily biased. Anderson denies that Che had ever killed an innocent person in his life, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary (Che was responsible for at least 14,000 deaths of innocent people in Cuba). Anderson also spends about 200 pages of his 814- page book writing about Che's largely fictional campaign to oust Batista (contrary to the Castro regime/Academia/MSM propaganda, Che was no guerrilla fighter), but focuses on Che's campaign against poor Cuban farmers in one dismissive sentence. Clearly, the Anderson book is biased in favor of the Castro regime. Humberto Fontova's books tell the truth about Cuba, the Castro regime and Che Guevara. Also, read Manuel Marquez-Sterling's book, Cuba 1952-1959: The True Story of Castro's Rise to Power, to learn the truth of what really happened in Cuba during the 1950s.
        Also, about the 9/11 attacks, the website link you posted is a "truther" website. That website is full of left-wing conspiracy theories about 9/11. The so-called "truthers" do not have any credibility.

          OMAR , you had better go study your history pal , especially about Battista . You got things about HALF-right at best . Ever hear of Meyer Lansky ? Battista's whole history ? Agreed Che was a communist MURDERER , and so too Castro . but revisionist history dont make it either . Do you know how many people Battista killed ? You could not have a Castro without first having a Battista . Che 's end was true karma , and the only reason he was ever romanticized was out of ignorance and revisionism .LOL…even FPM was advertising Che T-shirts about a year ago …ouch! As far as Humberto goes anyone who does not express rabid hatred of Castro , is a leftist or liberal . In reality Battista was worse , but because American buisiness both legal and illegal was heavily invested in Cuba , he was our boy . The sad thing about it all is that the peones suffered under Battista, Castro , and continue to under or embargo .

          • Omar

            No, amused. You need to study real history instead of reading Communist propaganda from the Castro regime. Yes, Batista was corrupt in some ways, but he was not worse than Castro. If anything, Castro is far worse. Also, Batista was not "our boy". The U.S. government imposed an embargo on Batista's government and denied him exile when he fled Cuba. In fact, in 1960, former Ambassador Earl T. Smith admitted, "We put Castro in power". Also, according to the Cuba Archive (which documents every reported death taking place in Cuba since 1952), Batista was responsible for approximately 3,000 deaths (not 20,000 as the Castro/Academia/MSM establishment wants the public to believe). During the 1960s alone, the Castro regime killed more than 14,000 innocent Cubans in the prison system. Many of those firing squad victims were as young as 14 or 15 years old. (Read The Black Book of Communism for more details) Humberto Fontova is telling the truth about the Castro regime in Cuba. You should also read Manuel Marquez-Sterling's book, Cuba 1952-1959: The True Story of Castro's Rise to Power, which tells the truth about what Cuba was really like during the 1950s. The reality was that Cuba was an exceptionally advanced and prosperous country during the 1950s. Cuba's problems were mainly political, not social or economic. During the 1950s, there were three main political forces (not two, as the Castroites claim) in Cuba: Batista, Castro and Carlos Marquez-Sterling (the author's father). Carlos Marquez-Sterling wanted to solve Cuba's political problems through elections and ballots rather than Castro's method, which was by force. The Castro regime has censored information on what Cuba was really like prior to Castro, as the regime rewrites history in order to comply with the regime's "curriculum". Also, American companies invested in only 7% of Cuba's invested capital in 1958. Also, in 1958, less than one-third of Cuba's sugar output was by U.S. companies. Today, there is no embargo on Cuba. There was already an embargo on the Batista regime in 1958. This is not revisionist history. This is true history.

            Battista was out of control , totally in the pockets of American Gangsters and crooked US politicians . You want me to read a book ? Whose ? Someone elses fractured faireytales ? Which are as phony as Fonteva's heading for his article …."US government celebrates Che Guverra "?
            Really ?
            One low level jerk in the EPA sends an E-Mail which the EPA did not approve and immediately retracts and apologizes for?
            So THAT translates to the US Government "Celebrates " Che Gueverra ???? C'mon Omar you can't be that stupid …or can you ? Fonteva has certainly proved himself to be . Battista's bad history goes back to the late 30' s .

          • amused

            btw Omar , the Embargo in 1958 was an arms embargo , the full embargo was placed in 1962 when Castro nationalized American interest , in 1963 that embargo was even more restrictive .

          • Omar

            Amused, sanctions were in place on and off over the past 50 years. Currently, the U.S. serves as one of Cuba's largest food suppliers. There is no full-fledged embargo on Cuba. Castro's hatred for the United States was inherited from his father, Angel Castro (who was a Spaniard. He wasn't even Cuban), who fought for Spain during the Spanish-American War. It is important to note that Angel Castro opposed Cuban independence from Spain. Anyway, the so-called Platt Amendment was abrogated in 1934, about a quarter-century before Fidel Castro came to power. Also, how was Batista "in the pockets of corrupt U.S. politicians"? The U.S. government placed an embargo on Batista's regime in 1958. Then, when Batista fled Cuba, he was denied exile in the United States (he was not even allowed to set foot on U.S. soil. Don't repeat the Castro/Academia/MSM BS about what Cuba was like before Castro. Humberto Fontova and Manuel Marquez-Sterling tell the truth about Cuba. That's the reality.

          • Omar

            No, amused. I'm not stupid. What I posted is true history, not the Castro propaganda BS that is common in Academia and in the MSM. Humberto Fontova writes true history. Leftists despise Fontova because he exposes the truth about the so-called "workers' paradise" that has destroyed Cuba for over 50 years. Check the links I posted above for the truth about Castro's Cuba.

    Let me add another Cuban-American hero who escaped from Cuba when the Castros took over. In 1970 and 1971 I served with Major Juan Montez with the 8th Special Forces Group stationed in Panama. It was the 8th that, a few years earlier, supplied 'Green Beret' advisors to help stand up and train the Bolivian 'Lancero' (Ranger) infantry battalion that eventually closed in on and capture Che. The trophy case in the 8th's headquarters displayed a pen that was taken from Che. In late 1979, I encountered Juan Montez again, now a full Colonel in the U.S. Army. He had returned to Vietnam FOR ANOTHER TOUR and had lost one of his legs below the knee. And he still had the dream to return to a free Cuba, perhaps being a leader or helping to train a force that would depose the Castros.
