Cuba protesters warn Americans: Che Guevara was a terrorist who openly admitted to loving to kill people

Share:

WASHINGTON, D.C.- On Thursday, July 15th, protesters gathered outside of the White House urging President Joe Biden to act in support of the protests going on in Cuba.

Protesters reportedly told Breitbart News that the mainstreaming of Castro regime mass murderer Ernesto “Che” Guevara in America undermines the suffering of those killed. 

Guevara, a wealthy Irish-Argentine communist who participated in Fidel Castro’s seizure of the island nation in 1959, presided over the organization of firing squads to eliminate people who disagreed with Castro. He also pioneered the use of concentration camps in Cuba.

He wrote openly that he “really loved to kill” and particularly enjoyed killing religious people and suspected LBGTQ Cubans. Yet, his legacy in the United States has somehow morphed into that of a “revolutionary” representing the downtrodden. 

A famous portrait of the killer has become a popular t-shirt in America and the West. During the protests outside of the White House, a man identifying himself as Gianni, waved a Cuban flag emblazoned with an image rejecting Guevara.

He reportedly stated that those who admire Guevara have “the wrong information” and is urging those to become better acquainted with his true legacy. Gianni explained:

“People think he was great and a revolutionary. What no one tells you is that he used to kill gays in Cuba. His great idea was concentration camps for gays. He used to kill Christians. He used to kill people that didn’t agree with him just because they wanted freedom and they didn’t want to be communist.”

Guevara was allegedly responsible for helping Castro implement what were known as “Military Units to Aid Production” (UMAP), which were concentration camps nominally used for agricultural labor to enrich the country.

In reality, the concentration camps were used to kill and repress “undesirable” Cubans. Anyone suspected of homosexuality, known to belong to Christian groups like the Seventh-Day Adventists or Jehovah’s Witnesses, dissident writers, journalist, and others seen as a threat to communism found themselves in the UMAP.

Another man attending the protests in front of the White House said:

“(Expletive) Che Guevara, he was a (expletive) terrorist. That man killed a lot of people, you know what I’m saying? He killed a lot of mother (expletive) people. People in the world have a wrong impression of Che Guevara…He was in charge of killing people in Cuba.”

A third protester who identified himself as Amikal, said:

“He said, ‘we are going to kill people and we will continue to kill people if we need it. People against the revolution, we’re going to kill them.'”

Amikal was referencing a famous speech Guevara delivered before the United Nations General Assembly in 1964. Guevara told the world on that occasion:

“We have to say here what is a well-known truth, that we have always expressed before the world: firing squad executions, yes, we have executed. We execute and we will keep executing so long as it is necessary. Our struggle is a struggle to the death.”

Guevara added:

“We know what the result of a lost battle would be and the maggots [anti-communists] must also know what the result of their lost battle is today in Cuba.”

On Thursday, July 15th, protesters organized outside the White House in solidarity with Cubans on the island who took to the streets in dozens of cities across the county to continue to openly protest for freedom. 

The protests followed months of growing unrest against communism, largely fueled by the discontent of young Cubans who have never known any other political system.

Reportedly, the Castro regime responded to the protests by issuing an “order of combat” demanding that civilians take the streets and violently attack the protesters, despite the overwhelmingly peaceful nature of the protests. 

The regime shut down the internet, making it more difficult for protesters to share videos of either protests or of the subsequent repression.

The White House protesters stated repeatedly that the Biden administration should prioritize helping restore internet access for the average Cuban person and allowing Cubans in America to return to the island to help and fight the regime. One protestor stated:

“We’re going to do it. If you don’t want to do it, no military intervention, we’re going to do it.”

The protesters also expressed panic regarding reports of police engaging in door-to-door raids, shooting and possibly killing unarmed protesters in their homes, in front of their families. One video smuggled recently out of the country showed police opening fire on a protester in his living room, in front of his toddler children and wife. The men’s heath condition remains unknown.

Any more questions? BLM releases statement blaming protests against Cuban regime on U.S.

July 16th, 2021

While thousands of Cubans have been protesting against the totalitarian regime in the country headed by Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel, Black Lives Matter recently released a statement that was completely dismissive of what the protests have been about in Cuba and is instead blaming the United States for the current unrest in the country.

In the statement released by Black Lives Matter in the midst of protests where Cubans are demanding more freedoms, resources and access to vaccines in their country, the organization claims that the U.S. embargo against Cuba as being the main problem in Cuba:

“Black Lives Matter condemns the U.S. federal government’s inhumane treatment of Cubans, and urges it to immediately lift the economic embargo. This cruel and inhumane policy, instituted with the explicit intention of destabilizing the country and undermining Cuban’s right to choose their own government, is at the heart of Cuba’s current crisis.”

“Since 1962, the United States has forced pain and suffering on the people of Cuba by cutting off food, medicine and supplies, costing the tiny island nation an estimated $130 billion.”

The notion that the United States embargo against Cuba is “cutting off food, medicine and supplies” is an outright lie. While the embargo against Cuba used to halt trade of the aforementioned to Cuba, it hasn’t been in effect in roughly 20 years.

Through the agriculture appropriations act of fiscal year 2001, Congress arranged the removal of unilateral sanctions on commercial sales of things like food, agricultural products, medicine, and medical products/supplies to Cuba.

The statement from BLM continued, claiming that the alleged negative monetary impact from the United States embargo against Cuba has prevented the country from obtaining medical equipment to develop their own COVID-19 vaccines:

“Without that money, it is harder for Cuba to acquire medical equipment needed to develop its own COVID-19 vaccines and equipment for food production.”

Once again, this statement from Black Lives Matter is highly misleading, considering that Cuba has already developed their own COVID-19 vaccine that has an efficacy rate of 92.28%, which stacks up fairly well alongside Pfizer’s and Moderna’s at 95% and far outshines AstraZeneca’s at 76%.

BLM’s statement completely ignored what Cubans have been protesting against – their own government – and instead is somehow alleging that the United States is why the country is in the midst of unrest.

This sentiment shared by BLM also happens to be the same position that Cuban President Díaz-Canel has claimed, where the Cuban president urged his supporters to physically attack Cubans protesting the government earlier in July.

The Cuban government was also barring people entering the country from bringing in the likes of “food, medicines and hygiene products”, according to CNN. However, the Cuban government announced on July 14th that said restrictions would be lifted temporarily.

While the BLM statement blames the U.S. embargo for all the peril ongoing in Cuba, and called for President Joe Biden to “end the embargo”, even President Biden is siding with the protesters and is blaming the Cuban government:

“We stand with the Cuban people and their clarion call for freedom and relief from the tragic grip of the pandemic and from the decades of repression and economic suffering to which they have been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime.”

Danielle Clealand, associate professor of Mexican American and Latina/o studies at the University of Texas, was among those highly critical of BLM’s hot take on the Cuban protests:

“It was surprising to me that Black Lives Matter came out with a statement focusing solely on the U.S. and not talking about why all of those folks are protesting, not coming out in solidarity of Black folks on the ground who are protesting.”

“It’s just disappointing that the statement took this kind of stance that ‘This is all the U.S.’ when we know there is a lack of civil liberties in Cuba.”

Clealand says the situation in Cuba bears a lot of “nuance”, and while she is aware that many Cubans would like to see the embargo lifted, the people on the streets are not protesting because of the embargo:

“Folks on the ground are fighting for freedom, and they’re not talking about the U.S. embargo. The embargo is widely hated in Cuba, but it’s really not the center.”

The BLM organization has quite the track record of siding with violent regimes. 

Back in May, we at Law Enforcement Today shared a reported noting how BLM came out in solidarity with Palestine and Hamas during the conflict between the territory and Israel. 

Here’s that previous report from May. 

_

GAZA CITY, GAZA STRIP – Black Lives Matter has announced its full support of the Palestinians in the ongoing violence between Hamas supporters and Israel, a week after terrorists in Gaza began firing rockets onto Israel’s civilian population.

Black Lives Matter posted its solidarity with the Palestinians on its Twitter page on Monday:

“Black Lives Matter stands in solidarity with Palestinians. We are a movement committed to ending settler colonialism in all forms and will continue to advocate for Palestinian liberation. ( always have. And always will be ).”

The post featured the hashtag #freepalestine.

The tweet caught the attention of the BDS Movement, an anti-Israeli organization calling for a boycott of any Israeli companies and any foreign companies that “are complicit in the violations of Palestinian rights.”

The BDS Movement responded to the BLM tweet saying:

“Thank you for your solidarity. From Ferguson to Palestine, our struggles against racism, white supremacy and for a just world are united!”

The tweet compared the conflict in Gaza with the anti-police movement in the United States championed by Black Lives Matter. Ferguson, Missouri, was the city where Michael Brown was killed in a fatal police shooting.

The shooting of Michael Brown led to a false narrative that he had his hands up when he was shot on August 9, 2014. The incident resulted in a rise in calls for police reforms, despite the shooting being ruled justified when it was proven that Brown attacked the officer and tried to take the officer’s gun.

The incident is often considered the birthplace of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Violence between Israel and Hamas militants heated up on May 10 when Hamas terrorists began firing rockets into civilian populations in Jerusalem following a violent clash between Israeli police and Palestinian protesters at the al-Aqsa mosque.

Israel launched airborne counterattacks and activated its Iron Dome defense system.

Gaza’s death toll on Wednesday crossed 227, including 64 children and 38 women. Over 12 people have died in Israel.

A delegation of BLM leaders traveled to GAZA in 2015, the first of several trips to the region, according to BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors. In an interview with Ebony Magazine in 2015, Cullors said:

“This is an apartheid state. We can’t deny that and if we do deny it, we are a part of the Zionist violence.”

Cullors has said in an interview on the Laura Flanders Show that black people in America feel a “kindred-ness” with the Palestinians because of their “eerily similar” experiences:

“We are in deep solidarity with them, and frankly believe that Palestine is the new South Africa.”

Some local BLM chapters joined the national foundation in their support of the Palestinians in the conflict. BLM Paterson in New Jersey said in a press release:

“Our deep roots of solidarity are part of a rich tradition of mutual support and exchange between Palestine and US-based liberation movements, from the Black Panthers to the most recent communication between activists in Gaza and Ferguson, MO.

“Our struggles are connected in many ways, not least because the same Israeli forces forcibly expelling the original inhabitants of Sheikh Jarrah train repressive police forces around the world, including the US.”

The group made a demand that the United States government turn its support from Israel, long an ally of the United States, and re-direct $3.9 billion in US aid from Israel to the Palestinians:

“We stand together with our Muslim brothers and sisters during the holy month of Ramadan and demand that Senator Cory Booker, Senator Robert Menendez, our 12 U.S. Representatives from New Jersey, and the Biden Administration join us in condemning these senseless acts of violence and work to end the state of Israel’s campaign of terror against the Palestinian people.

“We demand that the 3.9 billion dollars in U.S. aid earmarked for Israel be diverted to help the victims of violence being perpetrated against the Palestinian people. The People United will never be defeated!”

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) have announced airstrikes ahead of time to allow civilians in Gaza to flee, but many civilians have been killed despite the effort. Palestinian rockets fly indiscriminately and without warning.

IDF posted a reaction to the violence on its Twitter account. The post includes a video purportedly showing Palestinians being used as shields for Hamas equipment and facilities, and rockets being fired into Israel.

The IDF said:

“Israel fights to protect its civilians. Hamas uses civilians to protect itself.”

Hamas is a U.S.-designated terrorist organization that has killed hundreds of Israeli citizens, as well as Americans, in suicide bombings and other terrorist attacks.
