Ernesto "Che Guevara" was an upper class Argentine doctor turned Cuban revolutionary who took aim against imperialism in all of its forms during the middle of the 20th century.

He is highly honored due to his stand against imperialism and his constant struggle for liberation, and greatly hated due to his militant ways and his anti-capitalistic ways. His ideas and praise of Guerrilla warfare and adventurism also gain him praise.

The man was captured and executed in Bolivia by CIA trained Bolivian Green Berets in the late 60's, after a failed revolution attempt (Due to Bolivia's Pro-Soviet leader). Though the execution was kept quiet to keep the people from looking at the revolutionary as a martyr, they did anyway. His face and influence is now greater than ever; covering land had helped to free including the Congo, Cuba, and South America and even in the land of his enemies (USA).

Due to propaganda and false accusations, some believe Che was a Hitler-esque belligerent terrorist, however the man known for his caring ways towards the captured enemy and his hate for terrorism could not have been more different.

Like all, Ernesto Guevara had his faults, but is in no way similar to the way many make him out to be; for he was no Christ, nor the opposite, just a man who stood for something.
That boy is a radical Che Guevara adventurist-leftist

Ernesto "Che" Guevara commonly known as Che Guevara, El Che, or simply Che, was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, physician, politician, author, intellectual, guerrilla leader, military theorist, and a major figure of the Cuban Revolution. Since his death, his stylized visage has become a ubiquitous countercultural symbol and global insignia within popular culture. As a young medical student, Guevara traveled throughout Latin America and was transformed by the poverty he witnessed. His experiences and observations during these trips led him to conclude that the region's ingrained economic inequalities were an intrinsic result of monopoly capitalism, neocolonialism, and imperialism, with the only remedy being world revolution. After fighting alongside Fidel Castro in the Cuban Revolution, Che fought in the Congo Crisis of 1965 and in Bolivia. Some of the books written by Che include Guerrilla Warfare, The Motorcycle Diaries, and Episodes of the Cuban Revolutionary War.
Che Guevara was one of the most influential people of the 20th century.

Most of the definitions focus on the saint he was definitely not. We owe a fuller picture of Che's personality and life to the readers of Urban Dictionary.

One genuine accomplishment in Che Guevara's life: the mass-murder of defenseless men and boys. At everything else Che Guevara failed abysmally, even comically.

Upon arriving in Havana on January of 1959 after an utterly bogus guerrilla war, Che Guevara immediately recognized the moat around Havana's La Cabana fortress as a handy-dandy execution pit. Hitler's SS had to dig them. Here Che Guevara had one ready made.

His favorite tool in the struggle for free education and health care was a shot to the back of the victim’s head. According to the authoritative "Black Book of Communism," Castro and Che’s firing squads riddled 14,000 bound and gagged freedom-fighters. Many (perhaps most) of their murder victims were boys in their late-teens and early 20s. Some were even younger.

Carlos Machado and his twin brother Ramon were 15 when they spat in the face of their communist executioners and died singing their national anthem as lustily as they cursed Che Guevara's Internationale.

A bona fide coward, Guevara died whipering "Don't Shoot! I'm Che! I'm worth to you more alive than dead!" This sniveling shout was heard by the two Bolivian soldiers when they confronted Che and his guerrilla charge Willi. Che immediately dropped his fully loaded weapons and started his whimpering. (That's two Bolivian soldiers against two armed guerrillas, by the way.)

Che Guevara was a sick murderer whose criminal acts, having been commited in the name of the "revolution," have been whitewashed by the radical Left.

Che Guevara was a communist revolutionary who helped castro enslave cuba. he is hailed as a genius of guerilla warfare even though most of his campaigns were failures. he killed many innocent people for refusing to be slaves of communism, but many rich, white, starbucks sipping, psuedo-intellectual college kids who've never left the states, much less seen the third world think still think he was a hero.
He got waxed by bolivian soldiers trained by American SF. even if he started with good intent, he was misguided and thought he could force people to live in harmony, which is one of the many follies of communism.
guilt ridden rich white kid- Che Guevara was a hero who turned cuba into a socialist utopia and cubans love him more than Jesus

regular guy- yeah, they love it so much they risk life on the high seas in banana boats to get the hell away from it. go to miami and tell a cuban who is old enought to remamber him that he was a hero and watch him eat your face

The biggest hero of assholes. Loved by many. None were loved by him. A coward whose last sentence was "Don't shoot, I'm worth more to you alive than dead." Led to hundreds of thousands of innocent Cuban deaths, and 74,000 deaths at sea by those trying to escape to freedom. However he is the reason I am in this wonderful country today instead of in Cuba. Atleast in this country the people who love him so much can bad talk our government, while if they had lived in Cuba they would not have survived that. Also a raging psychopath.

I wonder why rockers love Che Guevara so much if they had lived in his Cuba, they would have been thrown into prison camps and tortured.

The real Che Guevara: Terrorist, murderer, Stalinist. This is not the romanticized Hollywood version. Buy a fucking Che'
t-shirt for capitalism!
Che' is soooooooooo cool, look at Steve's awesome Che Guevara shirt.

This cat fought for the "liberation" of Cuba from tyrants while in fact he helped put in place an even bigger tyrant by the name of Fidel "no more toilet paper for our shitty island" Castro. This "freedom fighter" is 40 percent to blame for the slaughter of innoncent industrialists who sought to make the best of the island's natural resources and keep the savages at bay.

I bet his beard is a hit in Hell where he is burning for eternity with all Amway salespeople and Johnny Carson.
If Charlton Heston had sex with one of the monkeys on "Planet of the Apes" his offspring would have looked like Che Guevara.
