I just found a couple of famous* quotes from legendary leftist murderer Che today. Please feel free to quote them to any leftard silly enough to wear one of his shirts or call him a hero.
Mexicans are a band of illiterate Indians. —Che Guevara, in Mexico.
The Negro is indolent and lazy, and spends his money on frivolities, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent. —Che Guevara, upon returning from Africa.
We’re going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the revolution. By which I mean: nothing. —Che Guevara, regarding the lack of help from Afro-Cubans.
Nice bloke that Che eh?
Looks like kevvie has some competition in the time cover market as well.
Is there any scumbag who hasnt been feted at one time or another in this magazine?
*Famous in this context means makes leftards stick their fingers in their ears and go “la la la cant hear you”….

I have a che T-shirt.
It says “Communism killed 100 million people and all i got was this t-shirt” with a picture of che below the quote.
Wish i’d had it when i was younger.

My hispanic wife had one that said “Viva la ignorant white rich kids”; the reactions she would get was just too funny.

No worries, Mole. Re Time magazine, their finger is really on the pulse.
July 18, 2009, 5:24 pm at 5:24 pm
Any citation for those quotes?
July 18, 2009, 5:59 pm at 5:59 pm
Wikianswers is a good start. The “In Mexico refers to some of Ches own writings. He was famously scathing of his time in Africa, regaurding Africans as low lifes.
Entering any of those 3 quotes will lead to a source, wikianswers is just a place you will get all 3 at once.
#Ernesto “Che” Guevara
“We’re going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the revolution. By which I mean: nothing.” -Che Guevera
“The Negro is indolent and lazy, and spends his money on frivolities, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent.”- Che Guevara
“Mexicans are a band of illiterate Indians.” – Che Guevara
“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,” – Che Guevara
Hope that helps, some of his own writings are much less than complimentary to other races. In some respects one gets the feeling he saw himself as able to help the Cubans overthrow Batista because he was “superior” and could show the way.
A few of his rants wouldt be out of place from a certain Austrian chap with a funny mo.
“Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!”
To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary. … These are the procedures of the bourgeois detail. This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate. We must create the teaching of the Wall!”
“The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have conserved their racial purity by a lack of affinity with washing, have seen their patch invaded by a different kind of slave: The Portuguese … the black is indolent and fanciful, he spends his money on frivolity and drink; the European comes from a tradition of working and saving which follows him to this corner of America and drives him to get ahead.”
When he decided to leave Africa and abandon the Soviet expansion efforts there he later spoke on a radio talk show with Louis Pons and stated:
“We’re going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the revolution. By which I mean: nothing.”
heres another link, Im unable to serch anything other than text at the moment, but if you look around you may find a recording of this interview on the net. (Im guessing here)
He was a really nasty piece of work

What do you expect a revolutionary to be like? A cuddly, love-everyone kinda guy is, I’m guessing, what you expect. This was a man that people (who have actually read-up on him) revere for his steadfast courage in the face of ever present death! By the way have you ever stopped to consider how intolerant and racist the revolutionaries were who founded the United States? I do agree that 90% of people walking around In a Che shirt are completely void of any real knowledge as to what the man was really about but just because you dug up a few racist and bigoted quotes does not change the fact that Ernest “Che” Guevara is the Ideal of a true, modern revolutionary as well as a man of Absolute Conviction in his love for the downtrodden, oppressed and hatred for all forms of mass injustice.

Che was a sociopath who delighted in the killing of his fellow man.
You however, are a chronic masturbator that requires a bath and comb your fucking hair you tool, while we’re at it stop picking your nose and don’t spit it’s filthy and FFS put on clean underwear the skidmarks are thicker than a #7 bastard file. Your mother was right, you are a grub.
So you pull out the racist card, spare me your juvenile interpretations cockwaft, if you think a common criminal is your hero, then meh, whatever trolls your boat, it must be a utopia on your homeworld of planet shit for brains.
The basic fact is that you, much like your phsycochicken hero is a dickhead. I do hope i cleared those issues up for you, don’t thank me, i’m here to help, it’s what i do.
January 27, 2010, 2:31 pm at 2:31 pm
How many actors, artists and musicians do you think Che had slaughtered? STOP DRINKING THE KOOL-AID YOU NUMBSKULL!!!! I was a Carlos Santana fan until I seen him in a Che T-shirt…..Do you think he knows HE was outlawed by Che too. HOLLYWOOD AND PROGRESSIVE(modern liberal) DUMBASSES need to acquire a brain!!!!

It’s sad and amazing how many leftists have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. They somehow manage to convince themselves that they are the ones who know better.
These are the same people that voted for Obama.
What really saddens me is that so many of my own people know so little about who this man really was.
January 31, 2010, 3:49 pm at 3:49 pm
Yeah, but take out the thugish, mass-murderer, wannabe dictator, and he was a really nice guy.
February 12, 2010, 3:35 pm at 3:35 pm
That quote you have, it’s from his diary when he was 25 years old. This was before he had become politically active, and long before he had entered the Congo. Have we all forgotten Che’s admonishment of “American Democracy”, stating that democracy could not coexist with “financial oligarchy, discrimination against blacks, and outrages by the Ku Klux Klan.”? My guess is you knew damn well, and just placed the quote wherever it suited your purposes best. The vast majority of his Cuban forces were, get this, Afro-Cubans. That’s right, Cubans of African Decent. Idiots. He stuck his neck all the way out for the Congolese. Does that strike you as something your local Neo-Nazi chapter, or even your local Republican would do? No. No it doesn’t. After all, there are neither Aryans, or oil in the Congo.
February 13, 2010, 10:57 am at 10:57 am
Oh mt stevei, does the truth about you hero disturb you so? How about you go back and research ALL the quotes mentioned you mouthbreathing bed wetter.
“The vast majority of his Cuban forces were, get this,” – dirt poor patsy’s.
“He stuck his neck all the way out for the Congolese. ” – and ran like a pussy.
AND………….stevie brings out the nazi card……ding ding ding……….yes stevei for that you win the flaccid penis of the day award.
Remember stevi, when it comes to rebutting different opinions – what you consider a beverage, i consider reproductive body fluids.

“The vast majority of his Cuban forces were, get this, Afro-Cubans.”
So, his being a bigot is okay with you as long as later in life the Argentinean Che went to Cuba to boss around Afro-Cubans, executed others, helped impose totalitarianism on the rest and then invaded the Congo. Nothing says racial harmony like some white guy invading an African nation and being responsible for the deaths of who knows how many Africans. Either avoid hero worship or stick with Spider-man.
August 9, 2011, 6:55 pm at 6:55 pm
“The vast majority of his Cuban forces were, get this, Afro-Cubans.”
Really? So is that why he said this…
“We’re going to do for blacks exactly what blacks did for the revolution. By which I mean: nothing.”
‘Che’s admonishment of “American Democracy”, stating that democracy could not coexist with “financial oligarchy, discrimination against blacks, and outrages by the Ku Klux Klan.”
Of course when you are trying to convince the many non-whites of Latin America and Africa to fight for you, you are going to have to do some pandering. Criticizing discrimination against blacks in USA and the actions of the KKK was a PR move… nothing more. Che didn’t care about non-white Cubans, and especially not non-white Americans. Modern-day Cuba and Castro don’t either. Just look at who runs the show over there… all white Cubans. Both Che and Castro viewed non-whites in a more paternalist manner. Their outlook was something along the lines of: ‘we are white, and hence superior, so we are going to lead the helpless non-whites out of oppression. They can’t do it themselves, we need to uplift them. We know what’s best. But we whites will still rule of course… we’ll just treat the non-whites a little better than their current conditions.’ In short, they looked down on non-whites.
Why so many non-whites and white liberals idolize this man is beyond me.

why are white americans so threatened by che? che did the same thing slave boning george washington did, win a revolution. i cant help but noticed any counter arguement by these becker heads boils down to childish name calling. bunch of backwards teabaggers?

Comparing Che to Washington?
Cultural relativism at its worst.
February 23, 2012, 4:23 am at 4:23 am
Really? REALLY?! your going to compare a revelutionary hero who faught for EVERYBODY’s freedom (including trying to free slaves in the constitution though he was unsucsessful at that) to a revelutionary mass-murderer who thought he was superior because of his skin? George Washington is a hero because he was a good person to say the least. Chey was a dispicable humanbeing who hated everyone who disagreed with him on anything and hated people because he looked different. if you dont love the Liberty given in America, then i hope you dont live here. Leave it forthe rest of us you moron.

“Executions?” Che Guevara exclaimed while addressing the hallowed halls of the U.N. General Assembly Dec. 9, 1964. “Certainly we execute!” he declared, to the claps and cheers of that august body. “And we will continue executing as long as it is necessary! This is a war to the death against the revolution’s enemies!”
According to the “Black Book of Communism,” those firing-squad executions had reached 14,000 by the end of the ’60s, the equivalent, given the relative populations, of more than 3 million executions in the U.S. “I don’t need proof to execute a man,” snapped Che to a judicial toady in 1959. “I only need proof that it’s necessary to execute him! … Judicial evidence is an archaic bourgeois detail. We execute from revolutionary conviction.”

I hope someone kills you(r) Nazi pig!
Personally, I am in favor of making bacon regardless of the pig’s political affiliations or lack thereof. I’m glad we can find some common ground.
Here at Tizona’s we have very little respect for any mammal like, for example, Che or a Nazi pig, whose totalitarian instincts want other people killed for disagreeing with them.
Please, if you would remember to proofread then simple spelling mistakes like the one above can easily be avoided.

The “black is indolent” line was taken out of context by Glenn Beck for his “documentary” … what is the truth?
That quote was written by Che when he was 24 and encountered blacks for the first time in a Venezuelan slum during his Motorcycle trip around South America. *** The full context of this statement is addressed by biographer Jon Lee Anderson on page 92 of “Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life.” However, months later he announced himself a transformed man and even denounced the racism he encountered while living in Miami for a month. The quote was from 1952, before he was Che. Years later in Cuba he showed he was not racist through his actions:
– Che pushed for racially integrating the schools in Cuba, years before they were racially integrated in the Southern United States.
– Che’s friend and personal bodyguard was Harry “Pombo” Villegas, who was Afro-Cuban (black). Pombo accompanied Che to the Congo and to Bolivia, where he survived and now lives in Cuba. Of note, Pombo speaks glowingly of Guevara to this day
– When Che spoke before the U.N. in 1964 he spoke out in favor of black musician Paul Robeson, in support of slain black leader Patrice Lumumba (who he heralded as one of his heroes), against white segregation in the Southern U.S. (which still unfortunately existed), and against the white South African apartheid regime (long before it became the Western ’cause de jour’).
– Che was also heralded by Malcolm X during this trip to NY and in contact with his associates to whom he sent a letter, and later on behalf of his actions in Africa – praised by Nelson Mandela and the Black Panther’s Stokely Carmichael.
– When Guevara ventured to the Congo, he fought with a Cuban force of 100 Afro-Cubans (blacks) including those black Congolese fighters who he fought alongside against a force comprised partly of White South African mercenaries. This resembled the fight in Cuba, where Che’s units were also made up of mostly mulattos and blacks.
– Later Guevara offered assistance to fight alongside the (black) FRELIMO in Mozambique, for their independence from the Portuguese.
– Lastly, in August 1961 (9 years after his “indolent” remark), Guevara attacked the U.S. for “discrimination against blacks, and outrages by the Ku Klux Klan”, which matched his declarations in 1964 before the United Nations (12 years after his “indolent” remark), where Guevara denounced the United States policy towards their black population, stating:
“Those who kill their own children and discriminate daily against them because of the color of their skin; those who let the murderers of blacks remain free, protecting them, and furthermore punishing the black population because they demand their legitimate rights as free men — how can those who do this consider themselves guardians of freedom?”
Che’s bodyguard Pombo then
Che in Africa with his all black army
Che volunteering to fight with FRELIMO to free Mozambique from the white Portuguese
Che in Congo #2
Only to someone completely uninformed, could Che —(a man who fought in Africa with an all black army against white South African mercenaries of Apartheid)— be seen as “racist” for a diary passage he wrote as a youth 15 years earlier.

“The full context of this statement is addressed…” it sure would be great if you would have posted the expanded context rather than simply asserting it.
If you are going to copypasta you should do it competently and have working links.
Anyways, here’s a photo of dead Alabama governor George “segregation forever” Wallace with a black guy. Hopefully, Roberto won’t feel compelled to copypasta an apologia all over the internet claiming George Wallace wasn’t a racist.

I love how we learn through what has been told here in the u.s. and not heard his story coming from someone else from a different country. U.S. teaches one side of the story. Until you close minded sheep get your preposterous ignorant ways of thinking off your ass and travel south, then you’ll see what CHE really stood for. Live a little people and question twice before you make incredible statements.
October 12, 2012, 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm
What a breath of freash air Roberto.
I agree that Che’s actions were at times extreme, but mention a political figure that has had impact in the world who hasnt had such a moment. Most of them act like the cruel killer people see or describe in Che.
Look for Madelaine Albright’s quote of the 500,000 dead iraqui children:
Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?
Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price–we think the price is worth it.
Its all about what you are willing to do (as a leader) and who you want to believe (as the masses). Most people in here seem to believe Che was a cold blood murderer comparable to a nazi…. so be it. It tells more of the ignorance of the comparisson than about the nazis or Che (there is almost no comparison by the way, but that is just my view).
I was taught to hate Che, ridicule him and look with very little patience all the morons how used his T-shirts, quotes, etc. Then I started reading a bit more, years passed by and with that you mature (Im in my 40’s now) and the world also shows itself more truth of past events. For exmaple, the Cuban Crisis has been revisited a lot and both sides were as crazy as each other. They were on the brink of exterminating the human race! Do you think they other side (whoever it was) wouldnt had fired back if such a moment had come to happen? Read In the Fog of War by McNamara.
Coming from one of the countries were Che had a chnage of heart (Guatemala) also has given me the chance to revisit that part of history. Very difficult to read by the way, since it reads like Che the killer or Che the hero. Pretty much like this blog, and only people cheering for the same-team horse seem to listen to each other.
