“I respect the fact that he would die for his convictions. So a mirror of Che Guevara has a profound place in my house. I’m not the least ashamed to say that when I go to wash my hands I look at Che,” gloats Jesse Ventura.
Maybe it’s a coincidence that Jesse Ventura draws daily inspiration from a regime that jailed and tortured the most women political prisoners of any regime in the Americas —indeed, that introduced this Stalinist horror to the Western Hemisphere?
The regime co-founded by Fidel Castro and Che Guevara jailed and tortured 35,150 Cuban women for political crimes. Some of these Cuban ladies suffered twice as long in Castro’s Gulag as Yelena Bonner suffered in the Soviet Gulag. But naturally, given mainstream media “coverage” (dictation from regime apparatchiks) of Castro’s Cuba, they remain utterly unknown to the world, though many live a short cab ride from most major media studios.
But in fact Che Guevara did not “die for his convictions.” In fact he desperately tried to weasel out of this fate. This cowardly weaseling was after ordering his guerrilla charges to die for their convictions.
“No b*stard ever won a war by dying for his country!” George Patton famously quipped. “He won it by making the other poor dumb b*stard die for his country!”
Alas, commander Che Guevara–in grotesque and cowardly contrast to every commanding officer in every elite force of fighting men in modern human history (especially the Navy Seals!)–regarded his own men as “the poor dumb b*stards,” meant for slaughter.
Big, big difference Mr Harvard Visiting Fellow Jesse Ventura!
Famous “contrarian and skeptic” Jesse Ventura is notorious, in fact, for dutifully transcribing and regurgitating everything spoon fed to him by Castro’s KGB-trained intelligence operatives. Much of Ventura’s book on the JFK assassination, for instance, was lifted from a book by Fabian Escalante, a General in Castro’s secret police.
