Is “Useful Idiot” too lame a term for Mexican-born Carlos Santana?

L.A : The 77th Oscars Academy Awardscarlos2

"Mexicans are nothing but a rabble of illiterate Indians." (Che Guevara)

Tomorrow is Carlos Santana's birthday. So some of his sagacities hit the news-cycle. To wit:

"The 60s were a leap in human consciousness. Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Che Guevara, Mother Theresa - they led a revolution of conscience."

A Message from Carlos Santana in Architects of a New Dawn

The universal tone
Travels at the speed of language
It communicates clearly and without fear
It comes from deep and goes far
Healing wounds restoring faith and trust
It means to elevate transform and illumine
Thoughts feelings emotions
Into a place of JOY PEACE, LOVE and LIGHT
Singing the song of freedom liberation and emancipation
Yes from mental slavery and habits that bring hurt and pain
Where can we find this tone?
The tone unites alpha and omega
Creates a place for the lover and the beloved
The creator and creation dance together in unity and harmony
No beginning no end only everlasting holy moment / instant
Negative and positive become obedient only to divinity
Destination is here. Now!! Enjoy awakening
Never again will sacrifice be required

"Oye Che, ese tipo Santana sera come-mierda--o se hace?"

    Well, I know I'm uplifted and stuff. As if. The sad thing is this jackass may really see this recycled pablum as some sort of earthshaking revelation, like he just discovered fire. Maybe it's drug-induced brain damage, but I expect there was never much there to start, and there surely isn't much there now. But hey, the Estefans are fine with his shit, so it must be OK--at least as OK as the Estefans. And by the way, Gandhi was long dead by the 60s; he died in 1948. Sheesh.
