Che Guevara as the Easter Messiah: His opinion of lowly Negros and Mexicans

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.”

… Che

Happy Easter to our Bajan and Cuban communists.

    An interesting article BFP. Not shur what to make of it but it’s a good thing you did a cartoon of Jesus on the cross instead of Mohammed. Christians will pray for you if they think you are wrong whereas muslims will kill you.

  2. Rumboy.

    To be honest I will have to reread the works of Che to see if I really missed the above quotes that you have stated but somehow I don’t think that I will have to.

  3. Rumboy

    Still waiting.

  4. This is all true and very sad, here’s a 2008 reference http://bit.ly/dgeLHK

    This one is very current, at “American Thinker” http://bit.ly/cT1SLE

    I wonder if Peter Simmons would have Christened his son with this name if he had all the facts?

  5. Rumboy.

    Ah, you quote American sources. What can you expect. My sources tell me that his main two bodyguards were black and yes while he executed many who were from the rank and file of Bastita’s army, no where in any of the biographies can I find the instant of his executing a pregnant woman. Give me a quote from a South American writer of such.

  6. Rumboy.

    Finally the quotes from the Motor Cycle Dairies were written long before he became a revolutionary and naturally he was still very young and no doubt open to such feelings. Finished here.

    Good article, BFP.

    Just wondering why the message at this time?

    It does, however, provide us with another view that differs from the “freedom fighter”, “messiah” rantings we’ve heard over the years.

    Che is actually “SAINT ERNESTO” in Bolivia, where locals pray to him …

    “The resemblance to aspects of Christ’s life on earth can be easily traced in the life of Che. Both were doctors – Christ as miracle healer, Che as the trained physician, and were active as such, even or especially so when they were fighting, doctoring when others were resting or escaping. Both men were particularly concerned with leprosy, the disease of the downtrodden and outcast, as The Motorcycle Diaries (books and film) have reminded us in the case of Che. Like Che, Jesus was an egalitarian, a communist in terms of owning little and sharing all, and his disciples were bidden to hold all in common. Both were strict disciplinarians, who insisted on individuals leaving families, friends and privileges behind to join them, sacrificing comforts and, if need be, their own lives.”

    — David Kunzle, author of Che Guevara: Icon, Myth, and Message

  9. Marcos

    Che made the “black is indolent” remark in his diary as a youth, but months later changed and went on to speak out against segregation in the south US, speak out against Apartheid to the UN in 1964, bash the KKK in 1961, take a black bodyguard and best friend with him everywhere “Pombo”, integreate Cuban schools before they were in the US, and fight white mercenaries in the Congo with an all black army!

    “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 GUEVARA, 1964 at the U.N.

  10. What will they think of next

    I have never read those words from Che.
    This sounds like revionist history to me. The kind BFP like to wallow in.

    What about the catholic priest abuse stories? You have been strangely silent on these BFP.
    But then again that is BFP for you.

  11. BFP

    Hello What will they think of next

    The Catholic abuse scandal has been a terrible betrayal for at least the past 40 years judging by the history you’ll find online.

    Each of us has their interests and causes and the same is true at BFP. We just haven’t covered that story in a big way although we have touched upon it and other abuse scandals over the years.

    If, however, you are interested enough in the Catholic abuse scandal to write an article about it we will certainly publish it here and you can be assured that tens of thousands of people will read your article over the next week or so. If you are able to place it into a Bajan context, so much the better.

    You can post the article here as a comment or email it to us at barbadosfreepress@yahoo.com and we’ll post it as a featured article.

    Thanks ever so much.

    BFP,
    I think your decision to publish the aricle on the Catholic Church is worthy.

    You probably should extend it to other topics of interest; allowing readers to shake up and add interest to your sometimes bland blog.

    Your contempories at BU do this often; that is, allow readers to contribute articles. This creates the dynamism that blog is known for.

    I do not mean this to be a criticism, but rather a critique.

    Ps. The topic of the Catholic Church is being “beaten” at the moment at BU. Are you sure you want to duplicate at this time?

    Hello Facts

    Many of our articles are user written or suggested, but you already know that.

    We dropped Barbados Underground from our links and sidebar upon votes and support from our readers. As to the relative “popularity” of the two blogs, you’ll find that Barbados Free Press has a vastly larger and broader audience than BU – who seem to rely upon a small core of persons who hang out there for discussions that we don’t allow here.

    Barbados Underground allows racist and threatening articles and we don’t. No doubt a real core of their readership agrees wholeheartedly. Folks like Roosevelt O. King, the General Secretary of BANGO, the Barbados Association of Non-Governmental Organisations, publishes some very interesting words at BU.

    Stuff like:

    “90% of the white tourists that come to Barbados enjoy being sex slaves to black men and the talk don’t deter them.”

    and

    “White women are so fascinated by black men. They love to do the oral to black men because they think that when they drink our sperm, they getting nourishment, like how you drink milk from the cow.”

    This from a so-called “community leader” who has benefited from public tax dollars for years.

    Other allowed postings include calls to racial violence like this from “negroman”…

    “Brother Scout I feel Like you. I do not give a damn if David ban me either or edit this posting. I am totally piss to f-k off and it is all out war. Sir shridath Ramphal talk about ethnic cleansing I am about to start ethnic cleansing. Physical confrontation must be the order of the day now in Barbados. Scout, JC & the rest let start revolution”

    Others say things like this…

    “I tell you these foreigners ESPECIALLY the indian guyanese got me sick, sick sick to my stomach. I really don’t think I could take too much more of them in this place.”

    “The White stinking, disease filled Europeans must accept full responsibility for the chaos the world is in today.”

    Not to forget that Barbados Underground published that murdered Canadian tourist Terry Schwarzfeld was “white trash”.

    We have our agenda and Barbados Underground has theirs: which includes zero effective criticism of the DLP government on foundational issues, racism and threats.

    As we said in a previous article Barbados Free Press Removes Some Sidebar Links

    Barbados Underground: a blog that until January of 2008 was all but an equal partner with Barbados Free Press in our fight to bring Integrity, Transparency, Freedom of Information and Accountability Legislation (ITAL) to Barbados.

    Barbados Underground: A blog that went silent on ITAL the moment that David Thompson and the DLP were elected in January 2008.

    Barbados Underground: A blog that publishes reader comments calling a murdered Canadian tourist “white trash” and racially attacking Guyanese, Indians, Whites and Chinese.

    Barbados Underground: A blog that published articles and comments calling for the stalking and firing of witnesses in the Kingsland Estates court case.

    BU’s agenda also includes making sure that races other than this island’s majority race are not allowed to make their homes here.

    If you wish to read some of the comments and discussion at Barbados Underground, our article Murdered Canadian Tourist Terry Schwarzfeld Called “White Trash” – Senior Advisor to Barbados Prime Minister Publishes Articles on Same Racist Website! will be instructive.

    BFP,
    Thanks for your comments.

    While your obviously seem to try to distance your blog from racism (which is commendable and understandable), it will be very difficult to filter every racist or untoward remark on an open blog.

    I really can ‘t support you in linking BU with the promotion of racism (though some of the commentators sometimes make untoward statements).

    My submission is that if you allow monitored submissions by your readers, it would add creativity to your blog.

    Regards

    ” Barbados Underground has theirs: which includes zero effective criticism of the DLP government on foundational issues.”

    Not true BFP. Sylly G,Royalrumble and other members of the BLP posse are on BU attacking the DLP.

    Other good Bajans like the good doctor Georgie Porgie,a deeply religious braniac and Jeff Cumberbatch also blog on BU.
    So do I but you would expect that cause I is Dem supporter.

    BU is a Bajan blog that includes the good the bad and the ugly.
    You can choose what you read and ignore anything that is “distasteful”.

    Uh wunda why wunna moderating me.

    I mussee on a watch list fuh guh in pun Bee You.

  17. BFP

    Hi Hants,

    Not at all. Don’t know why the computer spam filter grabbed you, but we’ve freed you now.

    We’ll just have to agree to disagree that all positions are worthy of exposure. Frankly, we think that calls for genocide based upon race is not our cup of tea.

  18. BFP

    Hi Facts,

    Of course we allow and encourage submissions by readers. Always have.

    Currently of the 36 articles appearing on the first page, 9 are wholly or majority written by “non-BFP” writers. That’s 25% and we always welcome submissions via email or the comments section. Check it out and count for yourself!

  19. Richard

    please check out quotations from mahatma ghandi and his views on black people. It may surprise you. What is the “religion” you are speaking of, atheism or communism, or both?

    I guess words dont really have meanings in blogland

    Thanks

    A terrorist & a freedom fighter are the same thing, it just depends on which governments like you.
