Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart: Shameful memorial to a ruthless mass murderer

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Shameful memorial to a ruthless mass murderer

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement in response to the plans by Galway’s City Council to erect a memorial to mass murderer Ernesto “Che” Guevara in Galway, Ireland.

“Galway is a city where people have the right to vote, the right to worship freely, the right to speak freely, and access a free press– all of which “Che” Guevara and his murderous associate, dictator Fidel Castro, ruthlessly suppressed. Having a memorial to this cruel assassin is a shameful affront to the thousands of Cubans he murdered and utterly ignores the truth of who “Che” Guevara actually was,” said Diaz-Balart.

“Che” Guevara was a merciless executioner who reveled in the murder of men, women and children in cold blood. His own words betray his appalling sadism:

“We reject any peaceful approach. Violence is inevitable. To establish Socialism rivers of blood must flow. The victory of Socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!”

“In fact, if Christ himself stood in my way, I, like Nietzsche, would not hesitate to squish him like a worm.”

“My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood... Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any surrendered enemy that falls in my hands!”

“A memorial to this despicable individual is a shameful slap in the face to the victims, whose lives he so ruthlessly extinguished, their families, and the millions of Cubans who still suffer under the effects of his deplorable acts. I am confident that if the people of Galway know the well-documented horrors inflicted by “Che” Guevara, they will be disgusted by the prospect of erecting a monument to that monster.”
