Comment of the day

A comment left by Frederick Stebbins on the Miami Herald's Naked Politics blog story about Ché Guevara glorifying portrait hanging at the W Hotel on South Beach:

Why aren't other members of the gay community as offended as I am about this disgusting tribute to one of the most infamous homophobes (and murderers of homosexual men) of the 20th century?

Che Guevara explicitly wrote volumes of vitriolic hatred towards gay men, and considered them deviant/threats to his society.

I repeat, these were Castro-friendly gays, not Reinaldo Arenas types. You do the math.
