If you consider Che Guevara as your icon or role model, then you have been fooled…Read to know Why!

I have seen many youngsters put posters of this man in their rooms, they think it’s cool as he was a angry young revolutionist. But the fact is most people would not even know who he really was.  If you have considered Che Guevara as your role model or hero, then you could not have been fooled more.

Before calling anyone our role model, it is important to know about him, It’s like putting posters of Hitler because its famous and calling him hero without even knowing what he did!

The internet says Gaevara, was a warrior of the poor and the downtrodden, he was a mass leader and fought for the rights of people. But his real history is very much different from what is depicted by the media and international community which selectively makes or breaks a man according to their convenience. These people conveniently forgot to tell how Che Guevara ordered mass murders, behaved like a racist, autocratic rule he gave. As James Callaghan once said “A lie can be halfway round the world before the truth has got its boots on.”

The truth about Che is that he helped free Cubans from the repressive Batista regime, only to enslave them in a totalitarian police state worst than the last. He was Fidel Castro’s chief executioner, a mass-murderer who in theory could have commanded any number of Latin American death squads.

He could be called as the nineteenth century nihilist terrorist who inspired The Devils. In Cuba you know what happens to people who speak against him? They are arrested. When Che was alive anyone who spoke against him would be executed or herded into slave-labor camps. So everyone must love him.

Those people who consider him hero do not know what his last words were “Shoot, you coward, you are only going to kill a man”. But if you think he put his principles above life, again you are wrong! The big secret is that he was the same person who had pleaded the Bolivian soldiers with his hands raised saying Do not shoot me, I am Che Guevara and I am worth more to you alive than dead.”

This man was the one who made big slogans like “Its criminal to think of the needs of the individual.”

Che Guevara and his communists ideology played with the minds of youngsters and infiltrated their thoughts with brutality “A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.” Th hate filled minds only wanted to kill people and make them follow their ideas through violent means. There was absolutely nothing that preached about making the country free from poverty, addressed the problems of the poor or give a decent life to the youth.

Fidel Castro had once shouted against his opponent youth at the time, they destroy posters of Che! What do they think? That this is a bourgeois liberal regime? NO! There is nothing liberal in us! We are collectivists! We are communists! There will be no Prague Spring here!”

They had such hatred towards America, but today the same communists beg for money from the same country. The communist party in India get most of their funding from American NGO’s which desperately want to destabilize India.

Their hero Che once said…. “If the nuclear missiles had remained, we would have used them against the very heart of America, including New York City…We will march the path of victory even if it costs millions of atomic victims…We must keep our hatred alive and fan it to paroxysm.”

The Fountain of France had described Che in most apt way, they said “In his will, the graduate of the school of terror praised the ‘extremely useful hatred that turns men into effective, violent, merciless, and cold killing machines.’ He was dogmatic, cold, and intolerant, and there was almost nothing in him of the traditionally open and warm Cuban temperament.”
The word intolerant arises from the same people who today blame about India, they were the inventors of the word intolerance!

Che’s comrades and associates were equally ruthless. Venezuelan-born Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, also known as Carlos the Jackal, was trained in one of Che’s guerrilla camps outside Havana. He emerged from his studies a monster and became the most wanted terrorist on earth. He had made a statement when the Al-Qaeda had attacked twin towers in 2001…Bin Laden has followed a trail I myself blazed,” he said following Al Qaeda’s assault on New York and Washington. “I followed news of the September 11 attacks on the United States nonstop from the beginning. I can’t describe that wonderful feeling of relief.”

People think that he was a hero of the Africans and heard their cry, but Che used Africans and took advantage of their poverty and used them as slaves. In one of his interviews in Motorcycle Diaries he had expressed shocking views on Africans “The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the Portuguese. And the two ancient races have now begun a hard life together, fraught with bickering and squabbles. Discrimination and poverty unite them in the daily fight for survival but their different ways of approaching life separate them completely”.

In his 1959 speech after revolution, he explained what were his plans for Afro Cubans….“We’re going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the revolution. By which I mean: nothing.”

Today you see many so called left and liberal gang speak like peace keepers demanding ban on death penalty, but it was the same Che who made death penalty legal after he was made the Chief Judge of the Revolutionary Tribunals. Until then the death penalty was prohibited in Cuba as per Article 25 of the Constitution (of 1940).

Che had ordered the execution of over 1000 prisoners. He infact appreciated all those who killed people and said “Do not delay the proceedings. This is a revolution. Do not use bourgeois legal methods; evidence is secondary. We must proceed to convict.” He preached his followers that there was no need to wait for the trial and punishment must be carried out first. There is no need for much inquiry to execute anyone. We only need to know if they should be executed -nothing else.”

Apart from Cuba, Che spread the hatred in many countries, United Nations had questioned his act several times and demanded explanations for his brutality to which Che had replied Executions? Yes, we have executed, we are executing, and we will continue to execute.”

In 1967, Che wrote to the Tri-Continental Conference describing their brutality as “we shall follow the perennial example of the guerrilla, hatred as an element of the struggle, a relentless hatred of the enemy, impelling us over and beyond the natural limitations that man is heir to and transforming him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold killing machine. Our soldiers must be thus; a people without hatred cannot vanquish a brutal enemy.”

Che was totally against democratic rules, he was against the freedom of speech and expression and also press freedom. He had stated that there should be no press freedom if we really want to achieve revolution “We must eliminate all newspapers; we cannot make a revolution with free press. Newspapers are instruments of the oligarchy.”

So the main agenda of these so called revolutionists was to curb freedom of people, take complete control and eliminate every person who speaks or questions them. You can imagine what exactly can this organisation which was launched with a violent ideology be and the kind of mindset these people had or people who follow them have. Exactly why the communists party’s do not mind killing people, brutality and hatred is filled in their bloods.

The kerala’s communists killing of BJP and RSS workers, murders of 16,000 people during Communists rule in West Bengal and their association with naxals are typical examples.

Now if you have a poster of Che Guevara in your house or room, decided what exactly does it depict. Either you support his meaningless brutality in the name of revolution or you just have no idea about his past!
