Miami is home to the largest group of Cuban exiles in the country. Over the past five decades, millions of Cubans have fled the barbarous Castro dictatorship and its brutally repressive and murderous “revolution” with the majority of them settling in Miami as their new home. Therefore, it is quite understandable that for many of these Cuban exiles — along with their children and grandchildren (myself included) — anything that attempts to glorify or make light of the pure evil that is the Cuban dictatorship or its poster boy Che Guevara is unacceptable. For the same reason no one would glorify Stalin in a Russian-American community of families that fled the USSR or pay tribute to Hitler in a Jewish-American community, no one should find it acceptable to glorify in Miami the Castro regime’s psychopathic mass murderer and “Butcher of La Cabaña,” Che Guevara.
Nevertheless, it came to our attention yesterday that the taxpayer funded Perez Art Museum Miami is selling a Che Guevara “art project” where for your enjoyment, you can assemble a paper bust of the mass murderer to show all your friends.
At the store at the Perez Art Museum in Miami today, the mass murderer of Cubans, Che Guevara. Art project or insult?
Che Guevara as art project, for sale at the store of the Perez Art Museum in Miami –an insult to his victims, many families of those he had executed live in Miami.
It would be insulting enough for a private museum in Miami to think it was a good idea to glorify a murderous tyrant who ruthlessly executed hundreds of Cubans and played an intrinsic role in destroying the lives of millions of innocent people. However, for a Miami taxpayer-funded organization to do so is not only insulting, but completely unacceptable.
