Really Bad Revisionist History in Pictures

john che

History in Pictures @ History In Pix on Twitter posts "historic" photos daily on their account. The problem is, they either got caught in a photoshop scam, or crafted one themselves as they offered the above photo yesterday. (The tweet looks to have since been removed from their account.)

It was a photoshop, as Nickarama @ Weasel Zippers uncovered through a Beatles expert.

It's John Lennon and friend Wayne Gabriel.

A huge hat-tip to Nickarama @ WZ.

By the way, this selfie by Abe Lincoln is for real. He took it before leaving for the theater...

    This is SO lame it may have been done purely to get attention, however transient, knowing full well the fraud would be exposed sooner rather than later. As far as I know, Che wasn't into music, let alone the Beatles, whom he would have condemned as both bourgeois and decadent. At one point, simply being a young male with long hair could get you in serious trouble in Castro's Cuba for being an "undesirable social element," and Che definitely approved that kind of policy.

    Che's music was the rhythm of the firing squads which accompanied the melody of his gassing off about his affinity for murdering innocents.

    The Left is hate. Violence is the language of the Left. Genocide is its sole accomplishment.
