Obama and Che

Remember Maria Isabel, the Obama volunteer who flew a Cuban flag with the face of the butcher of la cabaña in Obama’s Houston campaign office?

Remember the 15 user generated web pages on Obama’s web site with quotes from or favorable allusions to the Argentine murderer?

At the time I pointed out that wacko leftists that worship at the altar of Guevara were supporting Obama in droves.

Well Gusano delves into another Chebama connection courtesy of the L.A. Times:

So it shouldn’t be a surprise that L.A. artist Shepard Fairey, in his design for a Sen. Barack Obama poster, looked to Korda’s Che.

Although Fairey doesn’t himself say that Che was the inspiration for the poster, in this article he’s accused of plagiarizing a famous poster of Che and Camilo Cienfuegos and turning it into a t-shirt design.

In this Mother Jones Interview Fairey boasts:

I give money to the Zapatistas for all the prints of Subcomandante Marcos that I made.

Do a Google image search for Shepard Fairey and see other examples of the artist’s imagery. I don’t see how any Cuban-American could in good conscience vote for Obama with the legions of commie supporters he has.

  1. That is the point. A lot of his supporters whould vote for Che or any Utopian socialist if they could, but since they realize that nobody is going to go for that, they are willing to settle for a diluted message, delivered by a less radical messenger with a wink and a nod that the candidate’s election is just another incremental step towards socialism. It’s Che-Essence- Eau de change. But you know, you’re free to abstain and not vote for McCain in November 🙂
