To the Liberals, Do you support Che Guevara?

I recently went to a teachers union rally and a group of quite a few of the 25-35 year old teachers were wearing Che Guevara  and Obama t shirts. I asked them why Che? They misquoted history and said he rose up against racism. And one of them said "He represents usurping the establishment and revolting against the status quo." I ask the liberals on this site. Do you support Che?

  • I can't support him, he's dead As a person and a revolutionary, like most radicals, he's a mixed bag. There are some things about him I agree with, and some I don't. Poverty and inequity motivated him.

    What a crock. Guevara was a communist murderer of innocents in his climb to greed and power. That teachers unions proclaim him a hero of the poor is ample evidence that unions in the public sector should be abolished and parents should demand to audit the schools that pretend to teach their children. Our children are being systematically indoctrinated by these Marxist socialist teacher unions that influence the curriculum and intimidate teachers that do not believe in socialism and want to instill our capitalist values and history. Disgusting to read about Che Guevara. He was as much of a monster as Bin Laden but not as smart.

  • The fact that the unions admire him so much should speak volumes to their agenda.

  • Only in "Evita." I enjoyed Antonio Banderas in the role. (I also liked him as Zorro.... Banderas, that is.)
