Che Guevara and useful idiots

2007-08-03 19:20:54.873623+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

I recently, yet again, saw a kid wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt, and got to thinking about making up a T-shirt with pictures of a number of political luminaries of a similar ilk who'd be as easily recognized. Say, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Che. We could toss in many more but I think that'd be enough to make the point.

I'm not sure that either the interviewer or the author is compelling enough to make me want to buy the book, but here's an interview with the author of Exposing the Real Che Guevara and the Useful Idiots Who Idolize Him, courtesy of The Boston Diaries.

But you know, ragging on kids wearing Che T-Shirts about Che's beliefs is kind of like ragging on all the folks who call themselves Christians about their lack of understanding of Jesus' teachings.

How about adding Bush, Cheney, Rice etc. to the list. I'm just sayin'...

Dan, I was thinking of maybe a t-shirt with a group shot of the culprits you mentioned in a Mt. Rushmore pose.

Eric, you and I are in full agreement here.
