Historical document

A reader has sent us a copy of the letter that advised President Lyndon Johnson of the death of Argentinean mercenary che Guevara.

The letter is signed by Walt Whitman Rostow, Special Assistant for National Security Affairs.



"Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate

 while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for

 the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!" 

"Hatred as an element of struggle; unbending hatred for the enemy, which pushes a human being beyond his

natural limitations, making him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold-blooded killing machine. This is

what our soldiers must become … " Che Guevara


He was very 'brave' when he was at La                 But he seemed really scared after he was

Cabaña Fortress murdering innocent                    captured by Bolivian soldiers


"I am much more valuable to you alive than dead," he told his captors pleading for his life. Unfortunately for him, the Bolivian army gave him some of his own medicine

An essay by Dr. Douglas Young, Professor of Political Science & History at Gainesville State College
February 10, 2009

Hollywood has dutifully churned out yet another cinematic agitprop paean to a leftist “martyr,” this time Ernesto Guevara. So let’s recall the real “Che” and try to discern why many supposedly democratic, civil libertarian liberals still swoon over this Stalinist mass-murderer.

The meticulous myth of Senor Guevara is of a handsome Argentine heroically helping Fidel Castro’s guerrillas liberate Cuba from Fulgencio Batista’s military dictatorship in 1959. Then he became a global revolutionary icon inspiring the downtrodden to rise up everywhere, even personally leading rebel warriors in the Congo before being executed doing the same in Bolivia in 1967. The (communist) party line says Che personifies the selfless humanitarian courageously fighting for “social justice.” He’s the Marxists’ martyred Christ figure replete with pictures of his half-naked corpse riddled with bullet holes. And the classic poster of an angry young Guevara has scarred countless college dorm rooms for over 40 years, putting a face on the eternally young rebel for angry adolescents everywhere.

The real Guevara was a reckless bourgeois adrenaline-junkie seeking a place in history as a liberator of the oppressed. But this fanatic’s vehicle of “liberation” was Stalinism, named for Soviet dictator Josef Stalin, murderer of well over 20 million of his own people. As one of Castro’s top lieutenants, Che helped steer Cuba’s revolutionary regime in a radically repressive direction. Soon after overthrowing Batista, Guevara choreographed the executions of hundreds of Batista officials without any fair trials. He thought nothing of summarily executing even fellow guerrillas suspected of disloyalty and shot one himself with no due process.

Che was a purist political fanatic who saw everything in stark black and white. Therefore he vociferously opposed freedoms of religion, speech, press, assembly, protest, or any other rights not completely consistent with his North Korean-style communism. How many rock music-loving teens sporting Guevara t-shirts today know their hero supported Cuba’s 1960s’ repression of the genre? How many homosexual fans know he had gays jailed?

Did the Obama volunteers in that Texas campaign headquarters with Che’s poster on the wall know that Guevara fervently opposed any free elections? How “progressive” is that?

How socially just was it that Che was enraged when the Russians blinked during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis and withdrew their nuclear missiles from the island, thus averting a nuclear war? Guevara was such a zealous ideologue that he relished the specter of millions of Cuban lives sacrificed on the altar of communism, declaring Cuba “a people ready to sacrifice itself to nuclear arms, that its ashes might serve as a basis for new societies.” Some humanitarian.

Che was a narcissist who boasted that “I have no house, wife, children, parents, or brothers; my friends are friends as long as they think like me, politically.” This is a role model for today’s “post-political” voters claiming we should get beyond partisanship?

Adding to the ridiculousness of the Che cult is that he was virtually a complete failure. As a medical doctor, he never even had a practice. When put in charge of the Cuban economy at the start of Castro’s government, his uncompromising communist diktats ran it completely into the ground, from which it never recovered. Humiliated, and also angry that Castro wasn’t fomenting enough revolution abroad, he then tried to lead such quixotic adventures in Argentina, the Congo, and Bolivia, failing miserably everywhere while sacrificing the lives of scores of naïve, idealistic young followers as deluded pawns in the service of his personality cult.

Another reason he fled Cuba in the mid-1960s was the complete mess he made of his private life. Though he preached sexual purity to his colleagues, he was a shameless adulterer who abandoned two wives and many children, some legitimate, others not. As a grandson put it, “he was never home.” The public Che who supposedly had such great love for humanity privately couldn’t stand most folks.

Guevara’s promiscuous communist adventurism was the pattern of a terminal adolescent running away from his problems to get caught up in some heroic crusade against his eternal bete noir, “Yankee imperialism.”

So why do so many well-heeled American libs still admire this thug? Are the young simply ignorant of his execrable record and drawn to the image of the dashing young rebel? Do older progressives feel guilt for their free market prosperity, and showing solidarity with Che absolves them? Do hippies-turned-yuppies get nostalgic for their youthful protests and rationalize that the symbolism of Che as a “social reformer” eclipses his actual horrific human rights record? And are some American Guevaraistas truly dangerous leftists who seek to emulate their icon and destroy our free, democratic, capitalist society? Ask that guy wearing the Che t-shirt.

You don't kow Che" A  Musical Video by Steve Pichan

A message from the author of You Don't Know Che: "This is a musical challenge to celebrities and others that proudly wear the image of Che on their clothing, jewelry, etc. The music was inspired by documentaries that I viewed which exposed the horrific truth about Che Guevara."

This video was produced by Agustín Blásquez, AB Independent Productions.

This poster reveals the truth of this criminal's cruel, murderous hypocrisy and acknowledges his countless victims, known and unknown.

All individuals used in this photo montage were murdered by che and the Castro regime.


Here we go again.... another bust of che Guevara gets decapitated in Venezuela

Jan. 27 - Once again, a monument to Argentinean terrorist che Guevara in Venezuela has lost its head.

This time was in the city of Mérida, where thousands of students went to the streets on Monday and Tuesday to protest the closing of a television station by the Chávez regime.

At least two other monuments to the Argentine mass murderer had been previously destroyed in Venezuela, by those who do not want Venezuela to become another Cuba.

"No to the closing of RCTV and No more blackouts," was written on the front of the monument.

The bust was put in place two years ago across from the Universidad de los Andes (ULA).

On Tuesday students took hammers and left che headless.


Che Guevara - The Real Story Video


From che Guevara's grandson, Canek Sanchez Guevara: "The Cuban Revolution died some years ago: it had to be killed off by those who act in its name to make sure it didn't turn against them; it was institutionalized and smothered by its own bureaucracy, by corruption, nepotism and the rigidity of the much-celebrated Cuban 'revolutionary' state. All of my criticism of Fidel Castro comes from his walking away from the ideals of liberty, from his betrayal of his own people and his frightening zeal to place the interests of the state above those of his people. Let's be honest, a young rebel like Fidel Castro in today's Cuba wouldn't be sent into exile. He would be shot." Published in the Mexican newspaper Proceso in October of 2004.


"To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary...These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate. We must create the pedagogy of the The Wall! (El Paredón)" --Ernesto 'Che' Guevara


Monument to che Guevara in Venezuela was destroyed only nine days after being inaugurated



On October 8, Venezuelan vice president Jorge Rodríguez. the Cuban ambassador to Venezuela and other officials of the Cuban and Venezuelan governments, traveled to Pico El Aguila, one of Venezuela's highest mountains, to unveil  a monument to Argentine mass murderer che Guevara.

The act was carried live by government television in Venezuela and Cuba and reported in all the official press.

But the monument lasted only nine days. Late last night a group who calls itself "Comando Patriótico del Páramo" hit the monument with machine gun fire.

The monument, that was made of heavy armored glass, was completely destroyed.

Just two days ago while he was visiting Cuba, Hugo Chávez made reference to the monument during a speech that he made at Havana's Palace of Conventions, after signing several economic agreements with acting "president" Raul Castro.

According to Chávez, the monument to che Guevara was proof of the love that the Venezuelan people had for the assassin of hundreds of innocent Cubans.

The Venezuelan government has launched an investigation into the shooting but has not said whether it would be replaced.


Ernesto "Che" Guevara dreamed of creating the "New Man" at any cost. During the Cuban missile crisis, he was in favor of a nuclear war because he believed that a better world could be built from the ashes, regardless of the cost in millions of lives. By adhering to his anti-American feelings and pro-Soviet stance, he achieved a role in history that stands for one failure after another, both in Cuba, as well as in all the other countries where he went to promote and disseminate Castro’s Revolution.

Ernesto "Che" Guevara had all the characteristics of a ruthless dictator and opponent of freedom. He believed that the end justifies the means, and he fanatically adhered to this gospel. This "idealized icon" is the one who, as a modern day Grand Inquisitor, eliminated many of his foes with a single pistol shot to the back of their heads. And he is also the same one who authored these enhancing words printed in the identity booklets of young Cuban soldiers sent to fight in Angola: "Blind hate against the enemy creates a forceful impulse that cracks the boundaries of natural human limitations, transforming the soldier in an effective, selective and cold killing machine. A people without hate cannot triumph against the adversary." More
