Why The Left Embraces Hate

. . . because they admire brutal tyrants who think hate is a good thing:

"Hatred as a factor of the struggle, an intransigent hatred for the enemy, pushes man beyond his natural limitations and turns him into an effective, violent, selective and cold killing machine. Our soldiers must be like that; people without hatred cannot triumph over a brutal enemy.'' - Che Guevara

Only an ignorant, mush headed college student or a genuine Stalinist would wear a shirt with Guevara's image on it.

This quote comes from this article by Carlos Alberto Montaner, who also describes the life of Luis Posada, another piece of leftist filth once allied with Guevara, who at least redeemed himself a tiny bit by fighting against the Sandinistas with CIA support.

Castro and his flunkies now maintain that Posada is a terrorist, and that may well be. The CIA has a history of employing such people, and there has often been blowback from such arrangements. But considering the source of the accusations against Posada, I would more readily believe Posada when he says he was not involved in skyjackings than I would believe his leftist detractors either here or in Cuba.

If Posada is a murderer and a terrorist, just remember: he learned at the feet of the masters.

Boy, do you have that right. I wrote a post on that subject a year ago, asking why nobody wears George Washington tee shirts.

Also, last week, I bought myself one of these, which I regard as an exception to the rule you stated above.

Posted by: TigerHawk at June 1, 2007 06:53 AM

In reality, there's much more to the story than Montaner writes.

There is no doubt that Posada and his fellow terrorist, Orlando Bosch placed a bomb on a civilian aircraft and killed all 73 passengers aboard. Bosch would later be arrested in the US for firing at a Polish freighter.

Bosch would later be pardoned by Bush the Smarter in order to help son Jeb's campaign in FL--despite the objections of the DoD, DoJ, and intelligence aagencies.

Posada has also been indicted with a host of bombings in Cuba, killing scores of civilians and tourists.

Really, Ken and the even dimmer Tigerhawk, which is more offensive: wearing a t-shirt of Che Guevara or pardoning and coddling terrorists?

Posted by: Jadegold at June 1, 2007 08:49 AM

Bosch actually did spend time in prison for his crimes. Not enough time in my opinion, but it is not the case that he committed terrorist acts and simply got pardoned as you are trying to portray it.

I suppose that yes, that is more offensive than wearing a Che t-shirt.

But so what - does that excuse wearing Stalinist propaganda as some kind of sick fashion statement?

Does that make Che's violently psychotic philosophy okay?

Posted by: Ken McCracken at June 1, 2007 11:39 AM

Ken, the facts are what they are.

Bosch served time in Venezuela. Our GOP friends had him released to the US and he was pardoned.

BTW, Posada and Bosch had been implicated in dozens of crimes including bombings and assassinations.

Again, which is sicker: some kid wearing a tee shirt with Che on it or the President of the US bailing a couple of murderous traitors out of jail and pardoning them so his kid could curry political favor in FL?

Only an ignorant, mush headed college student or a genuine Stalinist would wear a shirt with Guevara's image on it.

Wearing a Che T-shirt isn't as bad as pardoning a terrorist, but it's no better than wearing one that depicts Martin Bormann, Heinrich Himmler, Josef Goebbles, etc.

Posted by: Bigfoot at June 1, 2007 12:35 PM

Yep, exactly right.

The leftists might as well run around wearing Adolph Hitler tee-shirts. The hardcore left supports a philosophy even more deadly than the Third Reich's.

And if pardoning a terrorist makes someone a sicko . . . well I guess that makes Bill Clinton a sicko also. After all, he pardoned FALN terrorists on his way out of office.

Posted by: Ken McCracken at June 1, 2007 01:02 PM

A lefty thinks that honoring Che is the moral equivalent of honoring, say, Patrick Henry. A, er, non-lefty thinks it is the equivalent of honoring Goebbels or maybe, at the least, Franco.

Welcome to Planet Moonbat, Tigerhawk: where Lenin and Stalin are heroes, and George Washington is a white male oppressor.

Don't feel bad if you are too 'dim' to understand it, because it really doesn't make any sense.

Posted by: Ken McCracken at June 1, 2007 08:42 PM

It's almost as if Ken is in a competition with TigerHawk for the dimmest:

And if pardoning a terrorist makes someone a sicko . . . well I guess that makes Bill Clinton a sicko also. After all, he pardoned FALN terrorists on his way out of office.

None of the FALN members pardoned by our last democratically-elected President had been convicted of an crime involving violence. They had all served about 20 years which is far more than the crimes they were charged with.

Posted by: Jadegold at June 2, 2007 11:53 AM

I neglected to add none of the FALN were pardoned; their sentences were commuted via clemency.

I understand Ken--not knowing the difference between a pardon and clemency--will be confused and try to claim there's no difference.

But there is.

Posted by: Jadegold at June 2, 2007 11:57 AM

Oh I understand the difference between a pardon and a clemency, and I thank you Jadegold for clearing that all up for us.

We respect and admire your awesome Googling skills and the hours of time you put in here at WILLisms.com trying to 'correct the record.'

Geez, its almost like you have nothing else to live for.

Shorter Jadegold: Stalinist murderers are my heroes and must be defended at all costs! And WILLisms.com is the critical battleground on which this war must be fought!

Get over yourself.

Posted by: Ken McCracken at June 2, 2007 03:27 PM

Jadegold, where do you get that anyone was extolling Posada's virtues here? As to the pardoning, please stop mind reading why. It's just silly.

You've got that "I'm going to unload what I've got on tape" thing going again, rather than participating in the discussion.
