A debunking of liberal myths about one of the most bloodthirsty icons of the twentieth century. Hollywood, Madison Avenue, and the mainstream media celebrate Ernesto Che Guevara as a saint, a sex symbol, and a selfless martyr. But their ideas about Che-whose face adorns countless T-shirts and posters-are based on the lies of Fidel Castro's murderous dictatorship. Che's hipster fans are classic useful idiots, the name Stalin gave to foolish Westerners who parroted his lies about communism. And their numbers only increased after a new biopic was released, starring Benicio Del Toro. But as Humberto Fontova reveals in this myth-shattering book, Che was actually a bloodthirsty executioner, a military bumbler, a coward, and a hypocrite. In fact, Che can be called the godfather of modern terrorism. Fontova reveals: Û How he longed to destroy New York City with nuclear missiles. Û How he persecuted gays, blacks, and religious people. Û How he loved material wealth and private luxuries, despit… (mer)

If you want to know what Fidel Castro and his brother Raul along with the Argentinian "doctor" Ernesto "Che" Guevara did to Cuba after Batista, you need to read this book. Having said that, the one major drawback of this book are the personal axes that author Humberto Fontova has to grind. Fontova, along with his siblings and mother were able to escape Cuba in 1961. His father couldn't leave with them at the time as he had been detained for questioning by Che and his henchmen. Usually those detained by Che were never seen by their families again. Luckily Fontova's father was released and able to join the rest of the family in Miami.

Most books about Che idolize him and tell us what a great liberator he was in Cuba, the Congo, and Bolivia. You won't get that in this book. Fontova tells us like it was with well done research and interviews with those who were there when this all happened.

Glad I have it on my shelf. I'll refer to it again and won't read another book that idolizes this brutal executioner by the name of "Che" Guevara ( )

Great book. Well referenced. Includes references from the very obscure Verde Olivo, the Cuban Military's official rag. ( )

This will not shed light on why men like Che, Castro and Mao are lauded by the Left while white guys like Hitler and Stalin are the epitome of Rightwingers. Mr. Fontova's book will highlight the obtusely celebratory idolatry of these tyrants. Mixing critiques of past biographers, recounting reports and interviews of victims and victimizers, and Che's diary itself, Exposing the Real Che Guevara, destroys the happy revolutionary symbolism now all too prevalent in our culture.

Mr. Fontova does a great job of showing how teens, actors and rock stars and left-leaning politicians behold and revere a mass murderer, Imperialist (his forays into Africa and Argentina were attempts at establishing Marxism in those countries), book burning and counterculture hating coward. ( )
