Che Guevara in Chicago

chechi

You just KNEW Che Guevara would show up as an icon of the union demonstrators in Chicago.

Why?

Well, let’s consider the factors in this demonstration by union-educators who were mostly educated by other union-educators.

*Che Guevara outlawed trade unions. Then-- at Soviet gun-point-- he herded all recalcitrant Cuban union-members into forced-labor camps and sent their rebellious union-leaders to the firing squad.

* The union members clamoring for more union privileges in Chicago while wearing t-shirts hailing this murderous Stalinist union-buster and hailing him as a “role model” are mostly products of America’s public schools-- and keen to continue the glowing tradition abundantly evident in their own education.

    Well, he is especially popular in many medical circles. About 1/4 of the medical students I knew had his ugly poster in their apartments; which accounts for the very leftists doctors. I don't fully understand how he has become so popular, nor how he is so mistaken-becaues he died fairly young?
