Zone of Reality: Castro Notes

By Rich Kozlovich

Why isn't this all part of the historical record? Why didn't we see this on the news? Let's start with the answers to those questions first. We can graduate to bigger questions later. Someone needs to be made accountable!


Che and the Workers
By Humberto Fontova

The hero of so many leftists was not really what they think him to be. A May Day march without Che posters and Mexican flags is like a fish with a bicycle. …..It seemed that few groups of Mexican demonstrators forget to glorify the man on record as dismissing Mexicans en masse as "a rabble of illiterate Indians."…while residing in Mexico.

How many "Chicano activists" know this?......

Labor groups were also prominent on May Day with their Che regalia... [However] in a TV speech on June 26, 1961, when Che Guevara was Cuba's "Minister of Industries," he proclaimed: "The Cuban workers have to start being used to live in a collectivist regimen, and by no means can they go on strike." ……..

[As for those who resisted] The 20-year-old freedom-fighter's voice boomed out. "Shoot me right here!"….. His voice thundered and his head bobbed with the effort. "Right in the chest!"…."Like a man!" Tony stopped and ripped open his shirt, pounding his chest and grimacing as his gallant executioners gaped and shuffled. "Right here!"…..

Another enemy dispatched -- bound and gagged as usual….Castro and Che's firing squads riddled another 14,000 bound and gagged freedom-fighters. Many of their murder victims were boys in their late teens and early 20s. Some were even younger.

Compare Tony's death to Guevara's capture: "Don't shoot!" whimpered the arch-assassin to his captors. "I'm Che! I'm worth more to you alive than dead!"
