Che Guevara was killed by Bolivia’s police 40 years ago.

By Mick Gregory

Some background on Che Guevara, the romantic bearded figure on red T-shirts and coffee mugs at your neighborhood pipe store.

Che Guevara was one of Fidel Castro‘s henchman when they plotted to overthrow Cuba while in Mexico in the late 1950s. After they succeeded, Castro didn’t need Che’s carismatic status and good looks. So Che Guevara was guided out of Cuba (for his own good).

He tried to duplicate his left-wing overthrow of governments throughout South America. When Guevara attempted to unite miners in Bolivia to strike, he did not gain any support from the workers. The Bolivian government police killed Guevara in a shootout in 1967. The CIA doesn’t claim to have played a part.

(It was the LBJ-Democrat Party CIA, so it is possible).

Today, the fairytale leaves out the inconvenient truth, such as Fidel Castro’s hand in Che’s demise by abandoning him. The tale of the CIA behind his death is flawed in that it was the leftwing Democrat Party CIA at the time, not the Nixon, Reagan or Bush CIA.

The fable spread to suburbia. Target stores even carred book bags with Che’s image, until there was public outcry. If you have a Target Che bag, you can make a nice profit on E-Bay today.

No mention in Che’s rewritten history that Guevara’s mother was Irish and from a wealthy family. His parents even sent the young Che to medical school. Nor the gulog that his comrade Fidel filled with political prisoners for just trying to escape his socialist paradise.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

  1. And I’m the propagandist? What a load of misguided trash. Anyone can check out Che for themselves and discover the real story. That’s the problem with lies – they get drowned out by the truth.

    What is your problem with drugs today? It seems to be a recurring theme in your writings. Do you have a guilt complex?

  2. ‘reporting’?
    Now, you should apply that term very loosely. Some kind of realistic framework must exist in order for you to ‘report’ about it. I’d call your style more like ‘fantasizing’ than ‘reporting’.

    I see what you mean about the ‘pipe shops’ though.

    This is a shoddy piece of propaganda. You’ve even got the blatant facts wrong, never mind your distorted political perspective. For a supposed professional, you’re not very good. The CIA used to be pretty good at this. Have your standards slipped?

  3. We are trying to use more satire and current events to liven up our editorial cultivation. I thought you would appreciate the “put that in your pipe and smoke it” wrap up.

  4. ‘We’ ‘our’
    So you acknowledge a third party?

    I think I read you loud and clear now, Codename:”Mick”. Very clever. Very devious. It’s good to know that my instincts were correct.

  5. Haha – Julia, we meet again. You’re the alleged Venezuelan forced from her home by Chavez. You made allegations on my site but never returned to substantiate your claims. But then propagandists don’t need to substantiate their claims, do they?

    Are you an agent too? Is this a display of power?

  6. Cla,

    Upsetting to see the naked truth for a change, right? I use various sources. And didn’t even mention that Castro hated Che and may have led Bolivian soldiers to his camp. A wonderful source I use is the book “Century” with photos and facts of the 20th Century. It was written and compiled by one of your countrymen.

  7. Che was a legend.
    Che IS a legend.
    Che lives in us.
    In all us.

    You will never succeed. When you’re old and decrepit, our generation will inherit the earth. We will succeed. You have already failed.

  8. You mean the language is similar, or is that just another puerile dig?

    You seem I’m open minded. If the language in Che’s letter matches Castro’s style then that’s interesting evidence. Tell us more.

    (You see this is how learning works. It’s amazing! It’s even possible to change your mind! Wow!)

  9. ps. You once said on record at my site that you didn’t mind Che Guevara and that your friends in college used to call you ‘Che’.

    If that was true, why on earth are you demonizing him now?

  10. Mick,

    You can see in Che’s own words, his fond goodbye to Castro. He leaves to continue the revolution. Cuba was completed. I don’t understand you, really.

    I’m growing tired of calling you stupid too. I believe you actually know what really happens in the world, but continue to write against it. As though it’s not really happening. I really hope that’s not what you do and that you really are stupid. At least that way I could feel sorry for you and not hatred.

    Your comments over the past year or so, contradict each other so much. I don’t know where to begin pointing them out, so I suggest you check for yourself.

    You have no conviction, whatsoever. Absolutely none. How can you? Writing against what you really know for so long. I think all you care about is the mighty dollar. Oh, by the way, how’s the Hummer running?
    If you truly believed what you say. Why are you not fighting in Iraq right now? You see, thats the difference. If a war takes place against Imperial bastards, I’ll be there. Front and center, looking for you. Thats conviction.

    I worry for your soul… if you still have one….

  11. I have to admitt I don’t feel good about scrutinizing the Che legend. I was nicknamed Che for most of my adult life. A few years ago I became embarrassed by it.

    Actually, I have to help you Terry and Cla. Che was a Stalinist, USSR-styled communist. He had no problem with helping Castro throw innocent men (they were caught trying to leave) into Cuba’s Gulag. Che even wrote about it, justified it. Google it. I dare you!

  12. Mick,

    I would like to make clear that I am fully aware Che murdered many people himself, or gave orders to do so. Where you say they were innocent, I have to strongly disagree. These people were scum. All they did was screw their own people and please their American masters. The world is a better place without them.

    Also, revolutions don’t happen with cups of tea.
