Your morning dose of reality

For all the leftie morons with Che shirts:

as far as I can tell, there is no memorial, no place of pilgrimage for the countless lives extinguished by Guevara; those accused of being “counterrevolutionary traitors,” for instance. Take this diary entry from 1957, in which Che explains how he dealt with someone suspected of being a spy in the rebel’s Sierra Maestra camp: “I ended the problem with a .32 caliber pistol, in the right side of his brain…. His belongings were now mine.”

In 2002, Cynthia Grenier read through Che’s Congo diaries and found that “the beloved revolutionary icon sounds pretty much like an old-fashioned racist…”
