That “Wild and Crazy Guy!” Che Guevara! (according to CNN’s Piers Morgan)

Wildcia-de-bolso-che-guevara

This week on his show Piers Morgan Tonight, the smitten host gushed that his impromptu guest Charlie Sheen is "the Che Guevara of television" and "one of life's great characters."

What a wacky party-animal, that Che Guevara! CNN was the first U.S. network Fidel Castro bestowed with a Havana Bureau. So maybe Morgan's epic stupidity is not the only factor at work here. But let's get started.

Che's first decree when his rebels captured the town of Sancti Spiritus in central Cuba during the last days of the skirmishing against Batista's army, outlawed alcohol, gambling and regulated relations between the sexes. Popular outcry and Fidel's sharp political sense made him rescind the order.

"I have no home, no woman, no parents, no brothers and no friends," wrote the party-animal in his diaries. "My friends are friends only so long as they think as I do politically."

In 1960 at a town named Guanahacabibes in extreme Western Cuba, Che initiated Cuba's forced-labor camp system. "We send to Guanahacabibes people who have committed crimes against revolutionary morals," warned the party-animal, whose definition of such "offenses" proved pretty sweeping. In fact they read like Charlie's Sheen's daily planner.

Entire intransigence here from our friends at American Thinker

Unreal.
