Ebay vendors are selling el che dolls and finger puppets.
According to the dictionary a doll is:
1. child´s toy in the shape of a person or baby
2. a woman or girl who is pleasant to look at and described in that sense
3. a nice or helpful person
Based on the above definition, I have to say that there are some very questionable dolls out there. Elvis comes to mind…. but che? Intolerable.
A mass murderer’s image has no place in a children’s toy box, and I cannot imagine that anyone would consider an individual who enjoyed the summery execution of hundreds of innocent men, women, and children, as “nice”. As Cubawatch points out, there are no Pinochet, Hitler, Charles Manson, or Stalin dolls for sale.
Ebay’s policy states:
“Sellers may not list items that promote or glorify hatred, violence, racial or religious intolerance, or items that promote organizations with such views.”
Cubanazos and Cubawatch have contacted the people at Ebay requesting that they remove the offensive items.
