Do Leftists Know What Their Hero Ché Guevara Thought of Blacks?
When rapper Jay-Z and his pop star wife Beyonce went to Cuba to celebrate
their wedding anniversary in April, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., criticized
the rapper's choice of heroes.
"Well, I won't rap it, but I'll say, first of all, I think Jay-Z needs to
get informed," Rubio said during the April 14 interview on ABC News' This
"One of his heroes is Ché Guevara. Ché Guevara was a racist. Ché Guevara
was a racist that wrote extensively about the superiority of white
Europeans over people of African descent. So he should inform himself on
the guy that he's propping up."
It was a whirlwind day for Rubio as he taped seven interviews on Sunday
news shows in anticipation of releasing immigration legislation with other
"You know, Jay-Z's a guy that wears the Ché Guevara t-shirt and he doesn't
realize Ché Guevara was a racist," Rubio said on Meet the Press. "Ché
Guevara was a murderer and a killer. So look, (Jay-Z is) an entertainer,
obviously. He's not in the middle of any public discourse here. But I
think it's important to point out when people take stances like this that
Clearly, Ché Guevara is a controversial figure, but we hadn't heard before
that he was a racist. We set out to fact-check whether he "wrote
extensively about the superiority of white Europeans over people of
Ché Guevara's quotes about blacks
Ernesto "Ché" Guevara was a Latin American guerrilla leader and Marxist
revolutionary, and a major figure in the Cuban revolution led by Fidel
Castro in the late 1950s. Although hailed in some circles as a legendary
icon of rebellion, the Argentine-born doctor is also reviled by many
Cubans for ruthlessly ordering the execution of more than 150 prisoners in
Cuba without a fair trial.
But was he a racist? Rubio spokesman Alex Conant sent us links to a few
articles and book passages.
The most compelling evidence was from The Motorcycle Diaries, a book based
on diaries he kept while traveling through Latin America in the early
1950s. (The book was also made into a 2004 movie.)
"The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have
maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with
bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the
Portuguese. And the two ancient races have now begun a hard life together,
fraught with bickering and squabbles. Discrimination and poverty unite
them in the daily fight for survival but their different ways of
approaching life separate them completely: The black is indolent and a
dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has
a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this
corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of
his own individual aspirations."
Another comment came from Guevara's writing about his time fighting with
revolutionaries in the Congo and included this line: "Given the prevailing
lack of discipline, it would have been impossible to use Congolese
machine-gunners to defend the base from air attack: they did not know how
to handle their weapons and did not want to learn."
STILL can't understand why liberal Democrats are so in love with Mexicans.
Mexicans are against abortion, contraception, pre-marital sex, mainly
because they're mostly Catholic... oh, and they HATE you. Am I leaving
anything else out that you just LOVE about them?
Riiiiight... they're potential Democrap voters.
