Some might think this article to be a strange way of commemorating Easter, Christ and his sacrifice, but others will I’m sure will appreciate the juxtaposition of Jesus and Che. Hell… the atheists do it all the time, so why can’t this Christian? And yes, this failed Christian has had a rum or four, but why should that stop him from firing up the old Dell and talking about false Messiahs?
As Easter is upon us, we’ve republished a 2007 article We Know What Jesus Didn’t Look Like… Don’t We?
To be “fair” we will now publish quotes from another religious leader: Che Guevara. (“Fairness” is the enemy of “Justice”, but we’ll leave that for another day.)
“Che? A religious leader?” you say. Yes, Che was a religious leader. His religion was Communist atheism and he was as good a proponent of that religion as any. He was willing to die for it and he did. He was willing to put aside all his humanity for his religion. If thousands had to die for this new religion, so be it. Che was willing to pull the trigger – and often he did personally. (Sounds a whole lot like the Catholic Inquisition or the current Muslim jihad, doesn’t it?)
Seven months pregnant and condemned to death for the crime of being a “counter-revolutionary”? No problem for Che. He pulled the trigger. Even the most barbaric societies allow a condemned pregnant woman to give birth before execution, but not Che.
To this day Communists often punish entire generations for the misdeeds – real or imagined – of one of the family. I’m sure that Che would have simply loved North Korea.
Just so you know my opinion of the icon Che, who also founded the CDR – Committees for the Defense of the Revolution.
Here are a few quotes from Che that for some strange reason don’t appear in the new Apple iPod application of Che quotes.
Just remember folks: don’t believe me, BFP, Reuters, the New York Times or the Barbados Advocate. When you read something, do your own research and seek out original sources of information.
Do that for Che and let me know what you think.
Here are a few quotes from “Che” – otherwise known as “He who walks the behind the rows“ (as Stephen King would say)…
“The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and booze, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent.”
“The negro has maintained his racial purity by his well known habit of avoiding baths”
“Mexicans are a rabble of illiterate Indians.”
Happy Easter to our Bajan and Cuban communists.
