We already know that Che Guevara would be rolling in his grave if he could see his face printed on so many t-shirts providing income to the capitalist slobs we are. America represents everything he despised, but today, a leftist magazine is offering a replica of the communist in the form of a finger puppet.
Che Guevara was a Marxist revolutionary that eventually helped Fidel Castro secure his power and turn his country into a police state. The man oversaw and conducted the executions of at least hundreds of his own countrymen. Che eventually implemented labor camps where anyone that disobeyed Castro’s policy, or violated “revolutionary morals,” were thrown into as punishment.
During the revolution, Che was known for his quote on hatred saying:
“Hatred as an element of struggle; unbending hatred for the enemy, which pushes a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold-blooded killing machine. This is what our soldiers must become.”
Sounds like a great face to put on your finger and wiggle around at your kids, doesn’t it?
The description for the finger puppet reads:
“We may not know where Castro is these days, but we know where Che Guevara is: on your finger as a magnetic finger puppet! On your finger, he’s a puppet; on your fridge, he’s a magnet; in your puppet collection he incites the others to rise against their capitalistic oppressors! Approx. 4 [inches] tall. But not too short to stand up for the poor and oppressed.”
If this isn’t enough to quench your mass-murdering thirst, how about a little something more. The magazine also has a Che Doll, for the more, complete picture.
The Che Doll’s description reads:
“Che Guevara was many things. He was a rebel, an adventurer, a statesman, a civil rights leader and a revolutionary. And now he’s a cute doll thanks to our Che Guevara Little Thinker Doll. The Che Doll stands about 12-inches tall and comes dressed in green khakis, black boots and belt, plus his trademark beret. It’s as adorable, appealing and cuddly as the real Che was intense, violent, and cuddly. Che was known for fighting for just causes, and you should buy one just, well, cause.”
Liberal logic can sometimes get the best of us conservatives, but the point of the matter here is—why is this being sold? Che Guevara hated America and Capitalism so the purpose here is quite unclear. Besides the fact that he was a communist, and a mass murderer, I think we have better things to spend our money on, “just cause.”
How many of you are going to be purchasing a Che Guevara finger puppet for your kids for Christmas?
