Che Guevara Portrait Vandalized

Things have come to a pretty pass when you find yourself sympathizing with vandals. From New Haven, Connecticut:

David Greco, cofounder and executive director of ARTE Inc., said Wednesday he’s confident police will be able to identify the individual who vandalized one of the organization’s “Heroes & Icons” posters at City Hall earlier this week.

The unidentified vandal scrawled the word “asesino,” the Spanish word for “murderer,” in black ink atop the shoulder of the Argentine Marxist-Leninist revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara.

The description is apt; the rabidly anti-American Che Guevara was a professional murderer, responsible for liquidating resistance to Fidel Castro’s hellish communist regime. He performed his job enthusiastically, killing people personally (including children) and exulting in the rush it gave him. As he wrote in his Motorcycle Diaries (which admirer Robert Redford managed to edit into a hagiography),

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!

More Che:

We don’t need proof to execute a man. We only need proof that it’s necessary to execute him. A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.

Still more:

I’d like to confess, papa, at that moment I discovered that I really like killing.

A more profoundly evil person will not be found anywhere in the annals of history. All you need to know about progressives is that they regard him as a demigod. Portraits of Castro’s executioner were on prominent display during Obama’s initial run for office.

Consequently, it is hardly surprising that his portrait would be included in an exhibit meant to honor Hispanic History Month, even though the equivalent would be to include a portrait of Heinrich Himmler for Germanic History Month or Felix Dzerzhinsky for Slavic History Month — except that Europeans don’t get history months because it would be politically incorrect to have anything good to say about their existence. That’s why Columbus Day — the incredible shrinking holiday — is being transformed into “Indigenous Peoples’ Day.”
