A debunking of liberal myths about one of the most bloodthirsty icons of the twentieth century.

Hollywood, Madison Avenue, and the mainstream media celebrate Ernesto "Che" Guevara as a saint, a sex symbol, and a selfless martyr. But their ideas about Che—whose face adorns countless T-shirts and posters—are based on the lies of Fidel Castro's murderous dictatorship.

Che's hipster fans are classic "useful idiots," the name Stalin gave to foolish Westerners who parroted his lies about communism. And their numbers only increased after a new biopic was released, starring Benicio Del Toro.

But as Humberto Fontova reveals in this myth-shattering book, Che was actually a bloodthirsty executioner, a military bumbler, a coward, and a hypocrite. In fact, Che can be called the godfather of modern terrorism.

Fontova reveals:

• How he longed to destroy New York City with nuclear missiles.
• How he persecuted gays, blacks, and religious people.
• How he loved material wealth and private luxuries, despite his image as an ascetic.

Are Che fans like Angelina Jolie, Jesse Jackson, Carlos Santana, and Johnny Depp too ignorant to realize they've been duped? Or too anti-American to care?
Humberto Fontova left Cuba in 1961 at the age of seven. He has written for several conservative magazines and has appeared on radio and television. He is the author of Fidel: Hollywood’s Favorite Tyrant and Exposing the Real Che Guevara.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well-written if partial account of a Castro comerade- shows the damages done to Cuba by commnism This book, while biased is still essential reading. The author tells the reason why so many Miami residents and Cuban refugees dislike Cuba. He also brilliantly exposes the chasm between Guevara's image and reality. He was a totalitarian, who suppressed free speech and artists, impoverished Cuba and murdered political dissidents. While I wish there were more footnotes those that are there are important. The interviews with Communist Cuba's victims is also important. Recommended.
