Jesse Ventura tears up over (the selfless) Fidel’s feelings for his friend Che Guevara


“And I’ll tell you another thing that shows me a little bit more about Fidel Castro,” sniffled Jesse Ventura in an interview. “The main downtown building in Havana has this huge flat wall and it has got a huge portrait on it. It’s not Castro. It’s Che Guevara. The biggest photograph in downtown Havana was a mural on a wall of Che. Now if Castro was such an egomaniac and all this, wouldn’t he put himself up there instead of Che?”

For a man with Ventura’s (mostly self-) vaunted “street smarts,” Fidel Castro’s blandishments of (the conveniently dead) Che Guevara should be a cinch to plumb. Didn’t Don Barzini send the biggest and fanciest flowers to Don Corleone’s funeral?

  1. The photo is a classic image of the alpha male and the beta male. Che was always Fidel’s bitch. And yes, that prominent frontal bossing over his eyebrows is abnormal, in keeping with what was behind it.

  2. It’s been noted that Fidel’s greatest talent was an instinctual capacity for picking out people who could be useful to him, and then exploiting them to the max, even if that meant literally using them unto death. Che is a prime example of that. Fidel saw at once that he’d found a “live one,” as full of it as himself but with the fatal flaw of believing the stuff. Fidel never believed in anything except his own greatness–the purpose of everyone and everything else was to serve his purposes one way or another, and Che proved exceedingly obliging, all the more so once he was safely dead.
