When one deals with Communist dolts one has the myth of Che. However, the myth of Che was created by Fidel who created the myth after he sent the bumbling idiot to die. In a similar vein Farrakhan now claims to venerate Macolm X who reviled and threatened in life, some have alluded to a role in the assasination.
The Fontonova book is funny and it does not aim to be. The antics of those who venerate Che are so absurd that they defy sanity. Idiot musicians who pay homage to a man that persecuted rock fans. Several prisoners whose sole crime was listening to Beatles music tell their story. Among the persecuted is Guevara's grandson who is an Anarchistt and fled to Mexico. I would have appreciated the author expounding on American hippie traitors being mistaken for Cuban hippies and being beaten.
Che was never a doctor and his medical degree has never been produced. The author compares Che to Ringo Star who was merely in the right place. Che like John Kerry makes a huge production of a scratch only to be told by a real doctor quit crying. Che shoots himself in the head with his own weapon in combat.
His combat prowess was a myth and the Batista troops he allegedy fought were bribed.
Much of the guerilla myth was a PR campaign in the media. He was more Gomer Che than the legendary rebel leader. His rag tag bunch in Boliva frequently was lost and he left documents for his enemies to find.
Che also planned several terrorist attacks in the United States including attacks planned for the Statue of Liberty, The Liberty Bell, The Washington Monument and the Herald Square Department Stores. However as Guevara was a bumbling fool these lans were thwarted.
Guevara was very brave only when facing people who were bound and unarmed. In a typical scene of dementia NYC notables venerate Che who is planning to blow up the city they reside in. Of course the NYPD arrest a woman who was raped and imprisoned in one of Che's gulags and send her for mental health evaluations.
Che also lived in a mansion with a waterfall for "health reasons". He also had a yacht, rolex watch and big screen TV's for the same illness. Guevara thought of himself as an Argentinian Aristocrat. In one encounter he asks a person who he sent off to jail if he read a certain work by Kafka. The book describes the well known brutal treatment of homosexuals in Cuba who were sent to a labor camp with an Aushwitz like slogan at the top. Nazis proclaimed work will set you free and the Commies placed Work will make men out of you at their labor camp for gays.
The book alludes to a T-Shirt that reads "Che is dead deal with it". I would like to
have my own version of Gomer Che or Che Gump.
I am amazed at the contortions of Commies who rail about Gitmo. The prisoners have air condition, unrestricted use of libraries and better food than Cubans. If Cubans ever learned how well the prisoners are treated at Gitmo they would storm the place looking to get in. The idiots deny genuine political prisoners exist who live in conditions far worse than Gitmo. The idiots deny Cuba is a police state with an army of finks that has meddled in the affairs of nations far removed as Eithiopia. Lastly,
the dolts cling to the myth of a workers paradise that does not allow people to leave.
