It’s today’s must read – the brilliant political writer Alvaro Vargas Llosa has taken on che guevara in a long and awesome article in The New Republic.
Who is Alvaro Vargas Llosa? He is the Peruvian co-author, along with the great Cuban-Spanish Carlos Alberto Montaner, of The Guide to the Perfect Latin American Idiot – which has a whole chapter on castro-worship. You can just imagine what they think.
Today, Alvaro writes the truth about che ‘the killing machine’ and examines all the creepy sandalista idolizing of fidel’s toad that we see in Hollywood and elsewhere these days. He describes che’s love of Stalin and his murders of children. He sticks it to Carlos Santana – who does indeed know better and gratifyingly, we learn, was smacked down by great Cuban jazz musicians who told him that che tee shirt he wore at the Oscars was realllly uncool. Alvaro gets everything right and doesn’t miss a thing. It’s absolutely fantastic reading, and well worth the registration.
It’s exquisite – Read it here.
