Che's Memory Keeps Bringing Out the Moonbats

Almost a year ago, one of my co-bloggers at Chicago Boyz posted a debunking of the myth of Che Guevara, based on an article by Alvaro Vargos Llosa. There's nothing new in Vargos Llosa's article for anybody who has even the slightest historical knowledge about Guevara and the communist takeover of Cuba. What's interesting is that even a year later my friend's post continues to receive comments from people who take strong offense at any criticism of the legendary Che. It's also interesting how poorly written and reasoned almost every one of these pro-Guevara comments is. I don't know what to make of it other than that Google works in mysterious ways, and that there are many people whose critical faculties are so poorly developed that they believe life in Cuba has improved since the revolution. How does one even attempt to persuade such people that their cherished beliefs are all lies?

You don't. You can only hope to teach the uninformed but otherwise intelligent people that are curious about who that guy with the beret is. I get hate mail from these quacks all the time because of my web site trenblindado.com
