Well, I haven’t “completed” this goal, but I think I have done my share plus some, living in a small, at-risk community in Perú where Che’s face was plastered on every moving vehicle. I really believe I prevented one or two people from falling for all the Che adoration.
No I simply need more space on my list and there’s not much more I can do on this goal.
I am VERY proud to have created this goal and now there are 11 people left to carry it on. That’s tremendous. I feel really good about that. 5 years ago
Join the group �Help people see through political propaganda� and write the truth about what politicians say and what�s really going on. Support what you say and people will believe you.
I wrote a post about the �Democratic habit of cutting and running� and how it�s not true at all.
Someone should post something about Ch� and what he really was. 6 years ago
On Saturday, as usual, I was standing in Hot Topic considering tearing the Che shirts off the shelf when some hippie-looking white kid walks in in a Che shirt… so naturally i get pissed off as we so often do and I flip him off… and then I scream “fuck you” really loud…. shockingly, at hot topic communism=okay… free speech/outbursts=gets you kicked out of the store… coincidence? i think not 7 years ago
This I love: Today I visited a website devoted to Che: http://www.che-lives.com/home/
There I saw a call to arms for an Anti-globalization / Anti-war rally.
I love it … a website dedicated to a guerrilla leader who invaded more than one peaceful country and actively incited and participated in armed insurgency.
Let’s have a peace rally in his memory.
I love the utter stupidity of it. It’s beautiful in its hypocrisy. Oh I would love to be there to count the number of Ché t-shirts these anti-war protesters are wearing.

As a political moderate, I’m always amused by the hypocrisy on both sides of the political spectrum.
I have read a lot about Che, mostly in his own words: Motorcycle Diaries, Bolivian Diary, Guerrilla Warfare Guide. I feel like I know Che like a cousin. And I admire his fundimental desire to help the underclasses and eliminate poverty. We are brothers in that goal.
At the same time I am fascinated and disgusted by his arrogance and hypocrisy. As well as those who don his image. I am especially amused by those semi-afluent norteamericanos who wear his image as some sort of badge.
They grow up in an affluent, free society, but yet they seem to feel that the rest of the world does not deserve the same freedom and prosperity that they have enjoyed—that is inherent in a free and just society. For the rest of the world, they espouse hopeless socialist slavery. 7 years ago
