Pope's visit to Cuba for Dummies
Below you will find the schedule for the Pope's visit to Cuba. Interesting to see that the mass on September 19th at 9:00 AM will be held at revolution square with the image of che beaming in the background. No OUTCRY from ANY Catholic groups about this? No DEMANDS to remove or cover the IMAGE of che? The same che who EXECUTED Cubans! The same che who had these hateful and racist quotes below:
"The blacks, those magnificent examples of the African race who have maintained their racial purity thanks to their lack of an affinity with bathing, have seen their territory invaded by a new kind of slave: the Portuguese. And the two ancient races have now begun a hard life together, fraught with bickering and squabbles. Discrimination and poverty unite them in the daily fight for survival but their different ways of approaching life separate them completely: The black is indolent and a dreamer; spending his meager wage on frivolity or drink; the European has a tradition of work and saving, which has pursued him as far as this corner of America and drives him to advance himself, even independently of his own individual aspirations."
“Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!”
"Blind hate against the enemy creates a forceful impulse that cracks the boundaries of natural human limitations, transforming the soldier in an effective, selective and cold killing machine. A people without hate cannot triumph against the adversary.”
“To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary … These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution!”
“A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate. We must create the pedagogy of the The Wall!” The Wall is a reference to the wall where Che’s enemies stood before his firing squads.
“I am not Christ or a philanthropist, old lady, I am all the contrary of a Christ … I fight for the things I believe in, with all the weapons at my disposal and try to leave the other man dead so that I don’t get nailed to a cross or any other place.”
. “If any person has a good word for the previous government that is good enough for me to have him shot.”
“What we affirm is that we must proceed along the path of liberation even if this costs millions of atomic victims.”
“In fact, if Christ himself stood in my way, I, like Nietzsche, would not hesitate to squish him like a worm.”
“Let me say, at the risk of seeming ridiculous, that the true revolutionary is guided by great feelings of love.”
“It’s a sad thing not to have friends, but it is even sadder not to have enemies.”
