Cashing In On Che.

What I think about Che.

In a timely bit of convergence (I have no idea what that means either, but it sounds good), the boyz at Hillbuzz discussed young people who are all about Che without knowing anything about him.

It's tiresome, and offensive that ignorant people think something looks good, so therefore they have to have it on a tshirt and advertise their coolness.


As my friend the Colonel likes to ask those he sees sporting tshirts with Che's "iconic" picture on it, "So, you support killing children and firing squads, do you?"

It's entertaining, yet squirm-inducing, when he starts this line of interrogation.

Especially because so many do not understand what it is they're wearing.

Kind of like the young teen skater a decade ago who was wearing a tshirt with Jim Jones on it. When I asked him what it was about, he replied that Jones was some guy who killed a lot of people and was cool.


At least that youngster had a vague idea of what Jones was, but so many have no clue about Che.

He took one nice photo in his life, murdered many others, and cried like a little girl when he was captured by the Bolivian Army.

He's a money-spinner. He's a hero of the revolution, whatever that means. Heck, I'm still trying to figure out the Great Reformation, when the Catholic Church is still standing and we've got Pope Benedict up there. Remind me again what was actually reformed?

Same here with the idea of "revolution."

So often, it's an excuse for someone to get up and take command, to unleash their basest impulses and murder and extort.

Hello, Stalin, Lenin, Mao, Pol Pot, and how's our mate Rob in Zimbabwe going with his little bit of revolutionary heaven?

I really do wish people would do a bit of study. In the meantime, though, we have unions who are supposed to be supporting our workers supporting dictators installed by revolutionaries instead.

Hey hey, great stuff, kid. A day not spent taking down the child killing totalitarian monsters, like Che the child killer that leftards just lurv to somebody else's death, is a day wasted. Thank's a load.

Now where did I put that nightscope for creaming visiting Fidel and MUA pal's of the Cuban mass murderering ilk..in the dark? Oh, there it is. Now if I can just find the nest...

See, we can all do high concept comedy. No, really. Colonel Neville.

oh, please!

You are such a joke. So now you're an expert on Cuba, too? LOL!

I think earlier posts clearly establish that you don't have the intelligence to understand communism, nor islam, nor feminism, nor Zionism, nor the broader issues facing those in the Middle East. (what a waste of all that money spent on Amazon!!)

You are not some learned, serious commentator, rather a joke. You dont have the underlying intelligence to be able to analyse what you read, and without that, you take everything in uncritically. Your writing demonstrates that you've not the education to discern good writing from bad (published or online).

that you actually seem to believe yourself to be so clever, is supremely delusional, in fact, as delusional as many of history's most revolting dictators. "a deplorable lack of humility" - please, girl, you've nothing, no talent, nor anything so special, to be humble about.

start from a place of compassion, and show that you can understand both or all sides of very complicated political issues. Heck, recognise how very complicated those issues are, then write, and maybe your readers will stop being so amused and start listening.

How can you not recognise why most educated people would find your "elisabeth" not just offensive but capable of causing others harm? As are your views capable of such, if everyone was so ignorant... let's pray the social revolution you hope for, which is fuelled by hate and ignorance, instead of anger at injustice, never eventuates.

Anon, what we have here, to quote the late, great George Kennedy, "is a failure to communicate."

You've already got me pegged, so nothing I say will ever be worth your consideration.

I'm surprised you've not called me a bigot or a nazi yet, just some stupid female who obviously doesn't know her place (how would you like your sandwiches, sir?).

I'm no expert on Cuba, but I am sick and tired of the adulation showered upon people who saw nothing wrong with murdering those who disagreed with them.

As for Elisabeth, and Geert Wilders, and Mark Steyn, and Theo van Gogh and many others who speak out about and against sharia law and the islamisation of our Western world, you don't seem to have a problem with them being shut down.

I guess it doesn't affect you, so you don't care.

That's your choice.

I am curious, though, why you consider her speaking freely is capable of causing others harm.

Ah, radicals, leftists and their Islamofascist bedpals ad nauseum, are virtually "Anonymouse" by default. And what a surprise! Endless logical fallacy ad hom inem, false argument, strawmen by the legion and so on as per usual. Bravo! Five stars. You are an excellent by the numbers comrade.

Thus you and your mass ilk are laughably on display and dismantled at zombietime com, thepeoplescube com, iowahawk typepap com, lookingaththeleft com etc, and dare I say, at my little blog.

No, really. Toodle ooh, you ineffective unread twerp. Colonel Neville.

You right-wingers are so predictable and literal-minded. You keep repeating these supposed "facts" about how Che Guevara was like the opposite of what he's supposed to have been.

But really, the "facts" don't matter in this case. (They don't matter in all the other cases, too. But that's another issue.)

The thing is, Che has transcended reality. He is now an idea. And there's nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come.

Che lives!

Dear Derk Sapforhire:

Er, riiight. Let’s dismantle your ironically “predictable” logical fallacy parade of ad hominem, your squad of straw men and feeble ineffective false argument sans a shred of the empirical etc, PLUS your again ironically “literal minded” yet laughably glib, tired, unread yet wonderfully clichéd view of conservatives.

Yes, let’s shall we?

You driveled that: “…but really, the "facts" don't matter in this case.”

Yep, they certainly don’t for YOU and thus you have not provided and cannot furnish a single one, nor a single source to back up a single leftist talking point you blathered. Bravo. Five stars for Marxist critical theory. You learnt your indoctrination well, Comrade Pavlov’s Dog.


At 7:24 PM, Blogger Colonel Robert Neville said...

Part two:

You spouted that: “...you keep repeating these supposed "facts" about how Che Guevara was like the opposite of what he's supposed to have been.”

Er, so which argument are you presenting then? Seeing how Che the child killer was a med school drop out and parasite, a Marxist Communist Stalinist thug and mass murderer, a super narcissist, an uber-coward, sadist and clod, ignorant of economics and virtually everything, and hated long-haired rock musicians and artists and loved shooting boys in the head etc, I guess the “opposite” would be the following then:

A child psychologist noted for his work with children; a highly qualified and respected medical man; an elected democrat and advocate of civil accountable government and the rule of law, a productive champion of the capitalist free market and the free flow of idea’s, a tireless and selfless promoter of individual freedom both economic and creative and a firm believer in freedom of speech etc. He would also have a great sense of humour too, like P.J O’Rourke say. Such a man would have left a great legacy of achievement.

So where is it? Any evidence to support that Che the commie shit was any of those laudable and decent things and not a Marxist firing squad lover and eager organizer?


At 7:25 PM, Blogger Colonel Robert Neville said...

Part three:

You gurgled that: “...the thing is, Che has transcended reality. He is now an idea. And there's nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come.

Che lives!”

Er, no. Che is dead. Remember? Dead Che, best Che!

Che only transcended reality per se because Che never had the slightest interest in reality and certainly no human reality. Nope, Che was a “big picture” man. Thus he had the wall of his office taken down so he could see the bigger picture of his 24 hour firing squads and the revolutionary justice of El Paradon: The Wall.

What er, “idea” are you parroting about? Oh, you mean Che’s relentlessly stated wish for every democratic free market government to be replaced with a Marxist Communist Stalinist totalitarian prison state, and with him as the gleeful head executioner and economics dunce. Got it.

Yes, the Gulag’s and concentration camps are full of people who refused to see the beauty of the Utopian left dream. Perhaps YOU have transcended not just reality but common decency and the possession of any balls what so ever. Thus you try to get them from Che the utterly pointless while aiming to salve your fraudulent moral vanity.

Is it ok if Che had confiscated YOUR parent’s home and then shot them dead then? I mean after all, it would have been all for the revolution an’ all. So that would be cool and like totally rad!

You squawk that: “…he is now an idea.“

Er, Che never had an original, positive or productive idea in his life, He hated them. That’s why he like Marxism: it’s devoid of any “ideas” but one: nihilism.

Er, to most of his clueless brat fans Che the child killer is merely a fashionable photograph on a dumb t-shirt that gives their affluent weak and unread incurious lives instant “rebel cred”. His other fans are merely authentic murderous parasites and frauds just like Che was.

You geeked that: “…and there's nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come.”

Er, Communism dates from about gee, the 1880’s, pal. So it’s alleged “time” was 1917 and the 1930’s, 50’s ad nauseum but only in selected purpose shitholes, and ALWAYS via violent overthrow and mass murder. Marxism is NOTHING without its BASIS of murder, lies, envy, conformity, spite and madness. Why do leftards dissonantly self-name themselves “progressive’s” when they so clearly and relentlessly live in a ridiculously agitprop Commie past spouting the same unproven in the positive and utterly discredited trope’s over and over again? Hmmmm?

Clearly you have passively imbibed from that fascist control freak Utopian collective cup. Thus you are a bore and a laughable phony. No, really. Toodle ooh. Colonel Neville.

Well, well well. I do seem to have touched a nerve, haven't I? (Or rather, Che did.)

And that's exactly why he's still such a powerful figure. His great gift is that even now, in death, he can still rile conservatives so much that they will launch into deranged rants extolling their appallingly exploitative, elitist and morally absolutists worldview - such as the one you've written above.

Che provokes a reaction, so that we can spot the reactionary.

Che lives!

(Oh, and BTW, PJ O'Rourke isn't remotely funny. WE all know that conservative humor is a contradiction in terms.)

Dear Drek Sumpoil:

Er, riiight. Yes, we’re all so in awe and frightened of dead Che, the best Che. Nope. We’re sickened and amused by the millions of affluent Western leftard phony brats and witless unread evidence free twerps like YOU, and their cognitive dissonant Che love, and their by the numbers logical fallacy that they use to express their suburban revolutionary wank as they go and buy in the millions, yet another sad, dated and utterly pointless totalitarian joke from the worlds greatest t-shirt salesman.

And my my. I note that you still forgot to post a single shred of evidence for your repellent Che love and a single empirical source. Yeah, whenever anyone presents monstrous facts on say Hitler, Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot etc, I always say “hey, I’ve touched a nerve!” Er, no. The facts of mass murdering Communist thugs speak for themselves.

Ah, and yet more of your bog-standard laughable leftard views of the conservatives they and you don’t know and usually have never known. Seeing how conservatism is a set of four basic proven principles your ad hominem drivel is just that. The FOUR principles of conservatism are respect for the Constitution, respect for life, limited government and low tax, and personal responsibility. Which one are you against? Che the child killer was against ALL OF THEM.


At 9:14 AM, Blogger Colonel Robert Neville said...

Dear Drek Sumpoil:

Er, the ugly dumbassed love of the uber-statism of Marxist Stalinist Communism’s totalitarian 19th century junk IS “reactionary” squared and defined. But hey, that’s the left today. All of your allegedly “new” er, “ideas” are 1880’s, 1917, 1930’s and 1960’s/70’s et al fascist Utopian “for the good of the collective” firing squad based dreams.

Hardly contemporary, bub, nor can such moral vanity fascist posturing relate to modern people in the slightest. What is it with control freak leftists and their denial of their own monstrous political history? Gee, I bet the world would be just swell if you were in charge eh? Er, no.

Tell me a single ORIGINAL and positive idea of YOUR OWN that DOESN’T involve ever more government coercion and control? Any based on individual choice and freedom? Ya got nothing. You don’t really READ do you?


At 9:14 AM, Blogger Colonel Robert Neville said...

Dear Drek Sumpoil:

And now you’re better and funnier than P.J O’Rourke?! Is there nothing a left moonbat cannot do? And the titles of your books and many columns and witty interviews on YouTube etc are? Gosh, your scrawling here doesn’t seem that funny, witty or insightful in the slightest. You may have trouble getting published, pal. Ya got a blog where we can see your brilliant work? ANYTHING? Online? Nada. Zilch. The big leftist zero.

You’re all phony agitprop bluster, but like a true leftard fraud it’s nothing you ever practice or intend to live out yourself and never will. No, that’s for the inferior to you masses that only you can save and that Che the child killer, your dead Marxist blow job, should completely control. For their own good of course and for the revolution.

Nope, ya fulla crap ain’t cha. Good grief. There’s never a fact with leftard Che love. Not when you have gee, a photograph! Bwahahha! No, really. Colonel Neville.

At 3:05 PM, Blogger Colonel Robert Neville said...

Dear Dork Spumante:

Great men by definition achieve great things. Pray tell, what exactly are Che the child killer’s actual positive achievements? I await your empirical sources. And please, no liberating Cuba shit. Marxist Communism NEVER liberated anyone aprt from the thugs in charge to do as they please. Nope, Communism always enslaves and mass murders. Surely you’ve read the books and seen the films and heard the stars of collectivism and understood? Guess not.

Now you drooled that conservatives and comedy do not go together. Balls. How does that work for you exactly? So unless you’re a left liberal Marxist product sodden semi to total socialist enjoying rather ironically the benefits of the free market, one can’t be a wit? Quite. Clearly you and the laughable do go together and rather nicely.

So to you Tim Blair, Mark Steyn, Peter Cook, P.J O’Rourke, Leslie Nielsen, Bob Hope, Groucho Marx, Iowahawk typepad com, thepeoplescube com, colonelrobertneville blogspot com and a large piece of Jewish comedy history and more etc ain’t funny, but you are and according to you, you have an eerie ability to judge true comedic brilliance. Got it.

NOW make us laugh and show us how it’s done.

Oh, you what? You think Che the child killing Marxist Stalinist dead man is “great?!” Now that’s funny. Sad, creepy, unread, lazy and indoctrinated but still funny. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Five stars.

No, really. Colonel Neville.

Dear Drink Somekoolaid:

It’s interesting how many hilarious left comedians spout so many identical tropes and glib PC bigotries and present this as courage, while relentlessly ignoring the same elephant’s in the comedy room such as Islamofascism and gee, the left itself. Are you telling me that there is nothing phony, contradictory, monstrous and thus enormously funny about the left and other radical bores and their absurd always unproven beliefs?

Ted Kennedy, Janine Garofolo, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden Obama and Hollywood liberal hypocrites and so on are not disgusting left figures of fun and not ripe for comedy? Ditto for left comedians ever really attacking Islamic theocracy’s, psychopathic Imam’s, jihadist freaks, Commie dictators or Communist shitholes, a Democrat, any ecofascist Green fraud or the enormous failures of multicultism, the awful stupidity of enforced mass political correctness or gee, their own left history and failed discredited Utopias.

Now that's funny. No, really. Colonel Neville.

At 3:34 PM, Blogger Colonel Robert Neville said...

Dear Dicky Spouter:

There’s a lot of cowardice and fake rebellion around and maybe that’s why you like Che the fake rebel and super coward.

There are clearly great left comedians and perhaps most are, due to the oddly political conformist nature of the comedy circuit and thus they’re largely like pop musicians too: fake rebels bravely attacking easy obvious harmless PC non-left targets and spouting truly hideous bigotry, largely glaringly unread and prone to simple emotions over nuance and fact and well, they’re sometimes amusing cowards for the most part.

The majority go for the easy and unthreatening most every time, while utterly ignoring anything that may just kill them like say Islam. But then they do know that the average audience reacts to simple and shallow word connections, coercion, the threat of unpopularity and death threats.

Thus “BushHitler is so dumb that…!” Ooh, such bravery. George Bush may just…totally ignore you.

Yep, the Bush is dumb joke is the joke that all stupid people can laugh at and did for over a decade. Whole careers built on a lazy dissonance. Bush is a fully qualified FA4 jet pilot and mildly dyslexic. Oh the irony of the left and disability. It’s his policy’s you disagree with but perhaps that would be too complex and not so easy for the limited paradigms of stand-up. As it would that his ranch is an advanced green recycling and self-sustainable marvel while Al Gore lives in a power sucking mansion.

So Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Helen Thomas and Press Secretary Gibbs are not dumb, venal fakes unfit for ridicule?

Now THEY'RE funny. No, really. Colonel Neville.

Dear Desi Spazness:

Why do the left so often live in a fantasy life completely supported by the system they despise? The sometimes harsh adult facts of real life are relentlessly conservative and yet the left liberal of mind insist on hypocritical faux rebel posturing much like their repulsive criminal totalitarian heroes. Why oh why, my furry little Che loving moonbat?

No, really. Colonel Neville.
