Guerrilla leader and Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara was killed on Oct. 9, 1967 after being captured the day before by Bolivian forces. He was 39 years old when he was executed.
Guevara was influential in orchestrating the revolution that put dictator Fidel Castro in power over Cuba, and allowed the communist despot to inflict poverty and misery upon his people for generations. After he was no longer useful, Castro dismissed Guevara from his government in 1965, and Guevara would go on to foment bloody revolution throughout South America from there.
While leftists still idolize Guevara to this very day as a symbol of righteous rebellion, his record as a terrorist and a mass murderer is his lasting legacy.
“To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary… These are the procedures of the bourgeois detail. This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate,” Guevara wrote in an essay after obtaining power in the Cuban government.
In his diaries, Guevara proved to be a clinical psychopath.
“I see it printed in the night sky that I … howling like one possessed, will assault the barricades or the trenches, will take my bloodstained weapon and, consumed with fury, slaughter any enemy who falls into my hands,” Guevara wrote.
“He gasped for a little while and was dead,” Guevara wrote about a peasant he brutally murdered. “To execute a human being is something ugly, but [also] exemplary.”
Guevara was also remarkably anti-progressive, harboring a brutal hatred toward homosexuals and racial minorities.
“The regime that Che Guevara co-founded is the only one in modern history in the Western Hemisphere to have herded gays into forced labor camps,” Humberto Fontova, author of “Exposing the Real Che Guevara,” said to Fox News.
Guevara wrote of black people he encountered while traveling to Venezuela: “Those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing.”
“The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving,” Guevara wrote.
After the Bolivian forces executed Guevara, they cut his hands off as proof of his death and tossed his corpse in an unmarked grave. This was a fitting end for a megalomaniacal communist tyrant who inflicted untold misery on the people of Cuba and South America while he was alive.
