Monday on Twitter, the official Spanish-language account of UNESCO, the cultural arm of the United Nations (UN), actually celebrated the birthday of Communist mass murderer and fashionable T-shirt icon Ernesto “Che” Guevara with a selected excerpt of his “historic” speech to the U.N. in 1964.
Guevara, alongside Fidel Castro in the 1959 Cuban Revolution, spoke in his writings of how he personally enjoyed killing his opponents, and was personally responsible for many of the thousands of firing squad executions after Castro hijacked the country. Guevara also supported the use of concentration camps to torture and eliminate dissidents, Christians, gays, and other communist “undesirables.” He also wrote extensively about his disgust for blacks and gays.
“[On this day] was born in Rosario, #Argentina Ernesto Guevara de la Serna, known as el Che,” the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) account wrote in Spanish. “We remember his figure watching his historic speech to the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1964.”
The attached video consists of about a minute of his speech in which Guevara says, in part, “We want to build socialism. We have declared that we are supporters of those who strive for peace. We have declared ourselves to be within the group of Nonaligned countries, although we are Marxist-Leninists, because the Nonaligned countries, like ourselves, fight imperialism.”
Omitted from the speech, which lasted nearly an hour, is Guevara’s admission to the UN that the Castro regime was engaging in mass murder: “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,” Guevara told the United Nations. “We execute and we will keep executing so long as it is necessary. Our struggle is a struggle to the death.”
