To The Daily Sun,
"Viva la revolucion" is the war cry of progressive Marxists around the world. "Che" remains such a famous and heralded freedom fighter that his last name need not be mentioned. His infamy as a mass murderer exists only for those who haven't been deluded by the cultural left and the academic elitists. Albert Korda's iconic photograph entitled Guerrillero Herico is still found on t-shirts from impressionable college students to Carlos Santana. Charles Jacobs and Ilya Feoktistov from Americans for Peace and Tolerance claim this fantasy belief is one way for students to deal with their "white skin privilege" guilt. David Brooks' book, "Bobos in Paradise" notes that it is a therapeutic way for middle class youth, living off the wealth of their parents and western capitalism in general, to deal with feeling trapped in what they believe to be an immorally privileged corner. Knowing the truth about this "Evil Ways" killer would not fit the narrative of the cultural left and would likely send those clueless youth in search of a "Black Magic Woman" to cure them of their romancing of the Marxist stone.
If our youth are looking for some truthfulness and clarity regarding history, the current leader of the free world, President Obama, is not the one to lead them to that hope and promise land. We all know he spent his formative years being adored by Marxist types from Frank Marshall Davis to his college professors. So we should not be surprised that our dear leader might wax nostalgic by wistfully asserting that "Ho" had been "inspired by the words of Thomas Jefferson." Yes, he said this to the press after meeting with Vietnamese President Truong Tan Sang while noting that after 67 years, the United States and Vietnam were finally enjoying the relationship that Ho once wrote of. Rick Moran's article about this tone deafness of Barack Obama is stunning when it is estimated that Ho Chi Minh, dictator of North Vietnam (1951-1969), used V.I. Lenin's tactics of terror, torture and re-education while killing about half a million people in order to maintain and then increase his brutal, dictatorial power.
How many have forgotten or are not even aware of "Hanoi" Jane Fonda's notorious trip to North Vietnam in July, 1972? Most notably were her radio broadcasts where she called American military leaders "war criminals". And later maintained that our POW's were hypocrites and liars. Who has already forgotten our president's former communications director, Anita Dunn? She of course was a flack for the crooked Tom Daschle and beloved wife of Obama's thug lawyer Robert Bauer, according to Michelle Malkin. However, she is included in this letter for her enthusiasm of Mao Tse Tung, who she deemed to be one of her two favorite spiritual advisers. No matter that his dictatorship resulted in the death of some 40 to 70 million people through starvation, forced labor and executions. This likely puts him ahead of "Ho" and "Stalin" as the historical leader of democide. To Anita and thousands of other Lenin/Marxists, he was a visionary who inspired revolutions around the globe.
Since our progressive educators continue to proffer "Marxist/America is evil" lies to our impressionable youth, it makes perfect sense that they would take up the cause of Dzojar Tsnarayev. And this clueless movement began even before Rolling Stone magazine decided to put a romanticized picture of the Boston marathon bomber on their cover, making him look like a cross between Bob Dylan and Jim Morrison. "Light My Fire" he has to many young woman who have found themselves yet one more "bad boy" to idolize and swoon over like moonbat, "Riders on the Storm". The fact that he is a radicalized Muslim from a region in Russia known for Islamic terrorists, well all the better. Tsnarayev decries, "No, No, No, It Ain't Me Babe" and the youth shed a tear and take to the streets with their "free Dzojar" signs like hypnotized "Rainy Day Women" . Yes indeed, our "social justice", re-educated youth have found another cause celeb to help wash away their ubiquitous white guilt so they may continue to indulge in their capitalist excesses with a clear conscience.
One can hardly blame them with so many mature role models guiding them. Yes, even the esteemed, ahem, United Nations are influencing their impressionable minds with the heartfelt message, "violence for social revolution is so very cool". Why just last month, UNESCO, the so-called intellectual agency of the United Nations, authored a ceremony in Havana honoring Che Guevara by enshrining his writings in the "Memory of the World Register". As reported by Humberto Fontova, not far from the ceremony, Cubans were being starved and beaten in torture chambers for quoting the UN Declaration of Human Rights in public. The regime being honored by UNESCO was also nearby burning hundreds of books and documents in a manner that would make Joseph Goebbels swell with pride. On December 9, 1964, Che proudly exclaimed "certainly we execute". Executions had already reached 16,000 at that point. His speech was rather fittingly made while standing in the halls of the United Nations almost 50 years ago.
With prolific movie makers like Michael Moore and Oliver Stone praising the accomplishments of the now deceased Hugo Chavez, socialism remains the gold standard for Democrats/mainstream media, academia and the Hollywood elite. Meanwhile, capitalism remains all that is evil in the world. So goes the twisted, bizarro mind of modern day liberals who continue to somehow look reality in the face and ignore it. Who also look real evil in the eye and somehow find a way to glorify it.
