This Sunday will mark 49 years since Che Guevara was executed, bringing an end to a reign of terror by the marxist revolutionary and international thug. Unfortunately, most students never learn the names of the innocents Che ordered in front of his firing squads or the effect his quest to establish socialism had on the people of Latin America. Instead, Che’s likeness has been idolized, emblazoned on t-shirts, coffee mugs, and billboards. President Obama was even photographed in front of a Che mural last spring, apparently ignoring the horrific acts carried out under Che’s orders.
To counter the lionizing of this cowardly killer, Young America’s Foundation works with students around the country to tell the truth about Che on the anniversary of his death (observed on Friday, October 7 this year). “No More Che Day” is designed to educate campuses about Che’s violent life and death, and underscore the faults of socialism.
YAF’s ‘Victims of Che Guevara’ posters allow conservative activists to show their peers that Che deserves to be remembered as a murderous thug and maniacal socialist, not some motorcycle-riding poet seeking better lives for his countrymen. Challenge students at your school on their impressions of Che with our “Who Said It: Che or Hitler” quiz (available online or in print form). And most importantly, arm yourself with the facts about Che, his bloodbath of a campaign to bring failed socialism to Latin America, and the way this “hero” of the Left met his end:
“Don’t shoot! I’m Che! I’m worth more to you alive than dead!”
His pathetic whimpering while dropping his fully-loaded weapons as two Bolivian soldiers approached him on October 8, 1967 proves that this cowardly, murdering, bumbling doofus and swine was unfit to carry his victims’ slop buckets.
