This is the type of thing you would expect to happen in the leftist ignorance bastions of San Francisco or New York, but it actually happened in Miami. Apparently, somebody thought it would be a good idea and perfectly acceptable to hang a poster of mass murderer Che Guevara to greet passengers arriving at Miami International Airport.
The poster was up for only a few hours before complaints began and it was quickly taken down. However, that does not change the fact that someone saw it fit to put up in the first place.
It is bad enough anyone would want to glorify a psychotic killer who murdered hundreds of innocent people with a poster. It is doubly worse that someone would do so in a city where so many family members of Che’s victims live.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Giménez’s family, who had to go into exile after the Cuban revolution in 1959, was inadvertently linked to that of Ernesto “Che” Guevara, one of the bearded guerrillas who helped install communism in his native homeland.
A huge poster of Guevara’s image welcomed passengers at Miami International Airport for several hours between Thursday night and early Friday, just a few feet away from the mayor’s image as part of the exhibition titled “Irish in Latin America,” sponsored by the Irish Embassy in the United States to highlight the contributions of Irish immigrants to Latin American history and culture.
The Che image, displayed at the airport’s E terminal, was created in 1968 by the Irish artist Jim Fitzpatrick and inspired by the photography of Alberto Korda.

“I saw it last night and I did not agree with it being on display. They should have put another photo of celebrities from Cuba, but not Che who was a murderer. That’s good to put it in Cuba or Venezuela, where there are communists, but not here,” added the employee, who is of Cuban origin.
