Ireland “honours” Che Guevara with postage stamp

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

2017 was a great year for terrorists hitting the jackpot. In July, Canada’s homegrown jihadi Omar Khadr received a $10.5M pay cheque and public apology and now, Ireland has released a postage stamp honouring Che Guevara.

So what’s the deal with honouring an Argentinean-born Marxist-guerilla who terrorized Cuba?

The ostensible policy reason is that Che’s father was a civil engineer of Irish descent. In 1969, Papa Guevara told an interviewer, “The first thing to note is that in my son’s veins flowed the blood of Irish rebels.”

The other Irish connection is the iconic image of Che seen on campuses around the planet was created by Dublin artist Jim Fitzpatrick.

Most kids who wear those Che shirts have no idea who he was or what he stood for. Anyone who has studied history knows Che was actually a cowardly murderer.

Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Havana-born Cuban who represents the Miami area, slammed the Irish stamp as being “a grotesque insult to the many lives he slaughtered.”

Whatever happened to the days of putting heroes on postage stamps as opposed to thugs?

Good point Muta Ween… If the Irish Post Office really had their entrepreneurial juices going they would have issued a whole block of stamps also featuring Uncles Mao and Stalin.. Rotund little Pol Pot; cigar chomping Fidel Castro; “bodies in the fridge” Idi Amin, and – hey! – today’s very own Rocket Man!…

Karan Singh – sadly, I have to agree with you.

How come ‘kaneda’ is lagging behind in honouring terrorists??
My take on this is it’s only a matter of time before libtard ‘kaneda’ issues a postage stamp commemorating the contributions of mohammedan terrorist like omar khadar or his father.

DIRK KANIS commented 4 hours ago;

Dirk, you forgot the Stalin Y Fronts!

And they never considered a stamp for Stalin or Maa ? An unspeakable oversight on the part of the Irish

Stupid… Stupid… Stupid… The Irish idiots who promoted this obviously never read Humberto Fontova’s 2007 detailed expose entitled “Exposing The Real Che Guevara”… Thirteen chapters of detailed facts and fourteen pages of footnotes… As the intro flyleaf notes:- MYTH – International man of the people. Humanitarian. Brave freedom fighter, Lover of literature and life. Advocate of the poor and oppressed…. REALITY – Cold-blooded murderer. Sadistic torturer. Power hungry materialist. Terrorists who inspired destruction and bloodshed through Latin America… Amongst other facts:- Che longed to destroy New York with nuclear missiles… Che promoted book burning and signed death warrants for authors who disagreed with him… Che made amazingly racist comments about blacks… Che persecuted gays; long-haired rock and roll fans, and religious people… But Che, the devoted communist, loved material wealth and private luxuries… The latter point sound familiar???..

I wouldn’t call “Che” a thug, so much as a terrorist.

Why not put a Nazi supporter on an Irish postage stamp? After all, they were neutral during the war… what’s the difference?

This really says a lot about Ireland. They deserve to reap what they sow.

Bet Rachel and Jhadi Justin have Che T shirts.

Commemorating a murderous terrorist is obscene, and, I would suggest for those living in Ireland who agree with me, protest loudly until the stamp is pulled. IF this doesn’t get you anywhere, buy them up, cut them up and mail them to the Prime Minister -Leo Varadkar!

So what’s new? They loved the desert rat Arafat too.

Canada’s Lieberals are obsessed with Irish Rock Bands. What’s next, Omar on a Postage Stamp?
