Only in New York: Communist executioner Che Guevara, a man who killed many who dared to stand up against him, now has a statue in New York City. This is not a joke, folks.
According to the blog, Right Wing News,
"Appropriately, the statue was financed with funds expropriated by force from taxpayers, courtesy of the Public Art Fund, the City of New York, the NEA, and the New York Council for the Arts."
The sad part about all this is that teens and twenty-somethings don't know what Che actually did. They just know he was a "revolutionary" and they think that's cool, so they wear his photo on their T-Shirts.
Your blogger partly blames the public school system and their socialist teaching for failing to get the message across that this was a horrible man, in the same vein as Stalin, and Hitler. Also, people want to forget that Communism is still a threat, with Putin making moves in Russia, and with the numerous governments behind the "bamboo curtain" in Asia. Also, Communism is once again on our back door in South America.
Even a 50-something U. S. Marine didn't remember who he was. We cannot forget the lessons of the past.
