Che Guevara “knew how to love”

Marxist Murderer

‘Che Guevara was just Papi to me’: Daughter of icon revolutionary talks of her  beloved father

Daily Mail: The daughter of iconic Marxist murderer South American  revolutionary Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara has told for the first time of her love for  the man she called ‘Papi’.

Dr Aleida Guevara was almost seven years old  when her father was executed in the Bolivian jungle in 1967 by agents working  for the CIA. She recalls how he would occasionally visit  her and her brother in disguise after vanishing from Cuba when he fell out with  the Russians who backed his close confidante Fidel Castro.

Aleida accepts murder

Now 45 years after his death, Dr Guevara told  the Daily Mirror: ‘Up to 16 I wondered, “Why should I love my father?”  He  was never beside me. ‘Then I went through all the memories I have  of him and realised he was a man who knew how to love. I had to love him  back.”

The eldest of Che’s four children from his  second marriage, Dr Guevara is in Britain to speak at a fringe meeting at the  TUC conference. She is campaigning for the Miami Five, who  were jailed in 1998 in the U.S. for allegedly infiltrating anti-Castro terrorist  groups.

Her father’s face has been exploited on  millions of T-shirts, catwalk fashions, posters, a vodka bottle, and even a  bikini worn by superstar model Gisele Bundchen. Dr Guevara, 51, said she is happy for his  image to be used by fans, but admitted she gets angry if her father is  economically exploited. She told writer Melissa Thompson: “I don’t  want money out of it – just respect for my father.”

He left Aleida – named after her mother –  when she was four but kept in  touch by letter and tried to be a parent,  inventing fantasy characters  to keep the children under control. She only learned he had died when posters  bearing his picture started appearing on the streets of Havana where she lived  with her siblings.

It was Castro himself who prepared her for  his death when he told her she should not cry for her father because Che had  written to the Cuban leader saying that he had died the way he wanted  to. The next day her mother read out a letter  from her father which began: “If you are reading this letter it means I am no  longer around.”

Aleida accepts her father killed but told the  Daily Mirror: “Yes my father killed, but revolutions are almost always violent.  If the enemy doesn’t give you what you want you must take it.

Cry me a river…

Che ordered executions, with conservative estimates ranging from 400 to 2,000 people murdered over his lifetime. He was a violent Communist thug who thought nothing of killing anyone who opposed him. He’ll never have my respect.

” She is campaigning for the Miami Five, who were jailed in 1998 in the U.S. for allegedly infiltrating anti-Castro terrorist groups.”

They can stay in jail for all I care. I suppose Obama will try to do something to get them out though.

The folk who let the Panthers off the hook are probably at work on springing these dudes, too.

“If the enemy doesn’t give you what you want you must take it.” Sounds like classic entitlement pathology to me. What about it’s current American corollary “If you have a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Yea, right. Socialism/Marxism/Communism is nothing but another form of sociological parasitism right alongside islam.

And Stalin’s daughter said similar stuff, too. (Probably Hitler’s German Shepherd as well… Adolf had a illegitimate son while he was in France during WWI, but I heard the guy wasn’t too thrilled about it.)
