One of the most influentional revolutionaries of the 20th century. Ernesto Guevara was born in Argentina. He had ancestors from Ireland. he suffered from mostly all his life. He loved rugby. The studied to b and doctor and soon got his medical degree. He was especially curious about the people who suffered from leprasy. In his early 20s he took a motorcycle ride throughout most of the countires in south america. He saw many of the textiles and beautiful natural resourse his latino countries had, but wondered how they were being robbed of what they could really produce. He then meet a young peruvian woman who then they studied Marx and lenin and many other socialist reformists. He got married then had 5 kids. He then fled to mexico city where most political exiles fled to during that time. There he meet castro who wanted to over throw the bautista dictatorship in cuba. The regime was secretly benifitin the U.S. government and the cuban hated bautista. Che went with castro to cuba. After fighting for about 5 years and Guevara moving up in rankings the revolution was won in 1959. Che momtivated the people to stop the imperialism in there country and then they started to stop all the bussinesses owned by the U.S. ( gas stations, fast food, clothing stores) They kept it for the people which s what socialism is. The U.S. then got pissed and formed a blockade not sending any imports since then. Geuvara didn't giva a fuck. He didn't want cuba just to produce sugar canes. So he started to agricult many new crops not used before in that land. A few years later he felt like he needed to keep doing his revolutions around the world to stop the yankeee imperialism. In 1965 he left for the zaire or the congo. There he tried to start a revolution againt mostly beglium controlled terrortry. He wasn't succesful. He felt the soliders were badly trained and in need of much discipline. He then left and went back to cuba for awhile. He asked castro for some soliders to fight in south america. He then went to bolivia which is surrounded by 5 other countries and would be good to start a revolution.when he got there to the jungle not much of what Castro had promised to send was there. also some russian help wasn't there. The bolivian cummunist fighters were to fuckin pussy and didn't come to help guevara when they said they would. Always debated Castro some what desserted guevara because he was gettin to popular or because castro only cared about cuba. Later in the fight much undernumbered and many of his soliders to week and distro about his recent mother's death and faliure in the congo Guevara was captured. He was then held hostage in a remote young run down school by a solider. They then gave to the order to shot him because the bolivians which were trained by the fuckin U.S. Green baretts who fought in the korean and vietnam war ( becuse such a revolution wouldn't benifit the U.S. from conrtolling those south american countries) killed him because they didn't want any prisoners. His body was then put on display but his message is lived out through out the world.

You hypocrites say you stand for what this man stood for, with your che shirt on.


You idiots, by buying a che shirt, you are doin exactly what Che would give his life (and other lives) for to stop!

You are supporting fucking capitalism... especially by purchasing a product from a huge clothes corporation, that is exploiting Che's face for profit.


that goes to all you self proclaimed "hardcore punks" that wear ANARCHY shirts!!!! .. every time one of you ignorant "punks" walks buy with a 40 dollar Anarchy shirt on.. i laugh my fuckin ass off, and spit in your face. pffft non conformists and anarchists MY ASS.
I respect Che Guevara's attempt to change a fucked up land, but he was as ignorant as Castro, Hitler AND Bush.

The Osama Bin Laden of the Cold War:

- Born into a rich family in a country economically colonized by the West.
- Disillusioned with the system that made his family - and consequently him, - wealthy; for somewhat legitimate reasons.
- Ostracized by his family for his opposition to this system.
- Turned to a mind-numbing and violent ideology of radical opposition to the system in place, popular with many others at the time due to legitimate flaws and a lack of opportunities for civil opposition, but far more flawed in its own nature.
- Funded by institutionalized proponents of the radical opposition ideology to "spread it," although not always entirely in-line with their specific principles.
- Ran around in the backwoods of desolate countries with poor and uneducated populations, trying to motivate them to join his cause and oppose the system; and mostly succeeding only in de-stabilizing said countries as the people there were wary of both.
- Eventually killed by the military of one such country who were tipped off by the local population that was annoyed with him running around in their backyards. (This has not YET happened to Bin Laden, unfortunately.)
Next time you see someone wearing a "Che Guevara" shirt, imagine how you'd feel in 30 years if someone wore an "Osama Bin Laden" shirt.

A racist mass murderer.
Che Guevara was a racist piece of shit mass murderer like Adolf Hitler except that he was Cuban and didn't kill as many people before he got his brains splattered all over that ground which he deserved because he did the same thing to so many others =)

A revolutionary who had the thoughts of the people on his mind. He did not wish to bring dictatorship to the world, like that shithead Josef Stalin did, but followed the true ideals of Karl Marx every step of the way, believing that all people are equal.

Was killed by the CIA and betrayed by Fidel Castro, who turned Cuba into the festering shithole that it is today.
Che Guevara is an inspiration to true socialists all over the world, who want to see change. It's time to fight back against the imperialistic desires of American Capitalism, and Capitalism worldwide. Against globalization! Against a global institution of dictatorship! Workers of the world, UNTIE!!

Communist Revolutionary that sadly was born on the wrong planet. Communism will never work with Human beings because we are competitive and greedy by nature. We cannot work as ants do in a hive (Even though they have a queen, they are pure communist, just watch a colony one day and you'll see) for the pure benefit of all man, if we don't have some kind of immediate benefit (money, fame, etc) nothing will get done. The only reason most countries have stayed communist is because of their very opressive military prescence on their streets. Capitalism is, unfortunately, the way of Humans and monarchy is also very popular. People WANT to be told what to do by someone smarter than them, they want to buy stuff, they want to worship paper and metal, thats how it is.
Poor Che Guevara, if ony he knew
