Happy Che Guevara Day, Moonbats!

Posted by Dave Blount at October 8, 2007 11:45 AM

Did you think today was Columbus Day, a day to take pride in the spread of Western Civilization to the New World? Wrong: it's Che Guevara Day, a day to glorify a communist dictator's bloodthirsty chief executioner.

In honor of this festive occasion, here again are some favorite Che Guevara quotes:

Dismissing the objections of a colleague who understood the importance of trials and proof:

Go ahead and try them tomorrow morning — but execute them NOW!

From his Motorcycle Diaries, which acolyte Robert Redford managed to edit into a cinematic hagiography:

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!

Instructing his Revolutionary Tribunals:

We don't need proof to execute a man. We only need proof that it's necessary to execute him. A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.

From a letter to his father:

I'd like to confess, papa, at that moment I discovered that I really like killing.

Summing up socialism, after describing how he shot some poor helpless guy in the head at point-blank range:

He went into convulsions for a while and was finally still. Now his belongings were mine.

To a 14-year-old boy, just before he personally blew the kid's brains out for trying to defend his father, who was also executed:


(The kid wouldn't kneel and had to be murdered standing up.)

Maybe now that it's Che Guevara Day instead of Columbus Day, people can go back to getting the day off work.

Don't forget to wear your Che T-shirt.
