Mercedes channels Che Guevara
This image has been used sell everything from watches to baby clothes, and considering the number of t-shirts, and other items we see emblazoned with the murderous mug, you might wonder, why bother getting upset?
I'll tell you why. Because this isn't just any old unpopular image, this is the offensive image of a mass-murdering, cold-blooded killer responsible for the deaths of thousands of Cubans. This is the image of a abusive psychopath who enjoyed unspeakable cruelty against his innocent victims, a killer who enjoyed the added cruelty of executing the condemned in front of their family members. I've seen elderly women almost faint when unexpectedly presented with his image, so great was the trauma inflicted upon them by his brutality, that the fear is still there, decades after the deed.
It is the responsibility of good people to speak out and denounce inhumanity. That a German corporation would use the image of a mass-murderer to market autos is particularly contemptible.
