Meeting Che

Ernesto “Che” Guevara is probably the most well-known, but least understood revolutionary in recent history. His face is placarded across the t-shirts of the fashionable whose “raise their fist and resist” mantra has the hackneyed quality of DePape’s “Stop Harper” stop sign. Guevara has been romanticised into a modern rebel who stood against the capitalist pig; in reality he was a murderer who stood against everything the Che-lauding Left applauds.

Nat Henthoff met Che and in this video he discusses what the meeting was like. If you want more, check out Alvaro Vargas Llosa’s essay, “The Killing Machine: Che Guevara, from Communist Firebrand to Capitalist Brand” in the 2005 The New Republic {HT: Cato}
