Che Guevara in Swanky South Beach Nightclub? (update: Not any more!)
Pictures in South Beach's W Hotel of English artist Gavin Turk superimposing himself over Che Guevara
(Below:) Some other whacky Limeys (Prince Harry & the late Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones) cutting-up!
...needless to add: after the DEAFENING (!!!) outcry against them, both Englishmen (Rolling Stone Brian Jones and Prince Harry) profusely apologized...in fact (as usual in these things) they groveled, they begged forgiveness they damn near wept...and the gaffe still dogs them in "enlightened" circles.
Needless to add: Englishman Gavin Turk GLOATS as a Stalinist --and not a voice is raised against him (except a very, very few in Miami).....needless to add these Miami voices are already getting bashed for fuddy-duddyism on top of being enemies of "artistic freedom"."
Never mind that the Stalinism Che Guevara embraced, practiced and represents (and Gavin Turks has soberly iconographed for years) murdered and tortured MULTIPLE times the number of innocents as did the National-Socialism a drunk Prince Harry and a stoned Brian Jones momentarily clowned with.....
BUT WAIT! Update!............
Update: The intransigent cabal/network GOT TO WORK! And CRACKED the whip!---and the Che likeness was shortly taken down from the W Hotel! From their management on Facebook:
W South Beach respects the concerns of our community, which has been so supportive of us, and we have removed British artist Gavin Turk’s self-portrait as Che Guevara from the property.
OK, fine for now--but just watch your step, Hotel W!...we'll be WATCHING!
"And the dog stays, right Hotel W?".....that's better.
