Che Guevara Idolator (in word and deed) Gael Garcia Bernal “feels pain” of Pinochet’s victims.


Gael Garcia Bernal, best known for his role as a young Ernesto “Che” Guevara in “The Motorcycle Diaries,” says his latest film has taught him a great deal about the pain that Chileans suffered during a long dictatorship.

The Mexican actor stars in “No,” which revisits a publicity campaign that helped oust Gen. Augusto Pinochet from power. “This made me realize the profound pain caused by the dictatorship and it hit me hard,” he told The Associated Press. after 16 years of his brutal regime.

Needless to add, (in Bernal’s view) no pain (profound or otherwise) resulted from the Stalinist dictatorship Che Guevara and Fidel Castro established. No victims in Cuba from the cowards, frauds and murderers Bernal glorified. As we all WELL know, any mention of “feeling the pain” of Cuban families, just ain’t gonna cut in in Bernal’s circles.

And, I know, I know..I know..I know..I know..I know..I know..I know..I know..I know..I know…(Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone, Bill Withers, anyone?).. .whatever–I know that if you denounce Castro it’s considered eminently respectable (indeed, almost mandatory) –for politically-correct considerations–to also denounce Pinochet. “All dictators are bad..blah…blah..blah.” It makes your denunciations of Castroism so much more “respectable” and acceptable in polite society.

But I’m not a politician or scholar, or even “respectable”…so here it is.

Great song, btw.

  1. Milan Kundera wrote The Book of Laughter and Forgetting and the title alone tells it all, doesn’t it? I am now reading Breitbart’s book as he recounts his journey from his leftist background to his curmudgeon against the left self.
    So much of what you recount here, Humberto, is recapitulated in his book. The story of the left’s deliberate lies and distortions of history does not get out enough. It is a miracle that we survive in the face of their determination.

  2. “It hit me hard.” Alas, not hard enough. But he recites the approved script commendably. At least he doesn’t look quite as intellectually challenged as Be-necio. Oh, and good luck with the “No” thing; sounds like a winner.
