A post from 2007: Che is dead, specially among young Cubans





Eloy Gutierrez Menoyo died in 2012.   He fought with Castro and then turned against him.   Gutierrez-Menoyo remembered Che this way:
"If the new man that Che wanted is what we have today, it has been a total failure," said Eloy Gutierrez Menoyo, a leader of the Escambray front until Guevara showed up.
Menoyo said he admired Guevara the guerrilla fighter but not the communist, a view that led him to break with Castro and earned him 22 years in Cuban prisons." 
Based on his comments, as well as my own assessment, Che is more appealing to spoiled Western kids who have never faced repression than to young Cubans who deal with repression daily.


Che is a myth, a face on a T-shirt, a legend unless you live in the Cuba that Che and Fidel created.


Thank God that someone took out Che many years ago!     Che is dead and that's the good news of the day!

P.S. Let me recommend Humberto's book about Che:
