Che Guevara Is Peta’s Dumb Animal Of The Month

che-guevara-carrotsTHAT’S Lydia Guevara, granddaughter of Ernesto “Che” Guevara working the carrot ammo belt for PETA in Argentina, home of the gaucho grill.

The campaign’s tag line: “Join the vegetarian revolution.”

Like Che:

Alvaro Vargas Llosa, author of ‘The Che Guevara Myth,’ says that Che was in reality the architect of Cuba’s infamous labor camps, which housed dissidents, gays, and devout Catholics. He was also a sadist who loved to simulate executions as a form of torture.

Batter farmed or free (shooting) range?

DEATH OF CHE GUEVARA works up great historical realism, including hair-raising battle scenes with the Cuban guerillas of 1956 and ’57, packed with startling details like the taste of monkey meat during Che’s ’67 sojourn in the Bolivian jungle.

Murder without meat:

In January 1957, as his diary from the Sierra Maestra indicates, Guevara shot Eutimio Guerra because he suspected him of passing on information: “I ended the problem with a .32 caliber pistol, in the right side of his brain…. His belongings were now mine.”

Viva la carne roja

Bahía Blanca, 16 January 1952

We arrived in Bahía Blanca, at the home of some friends of Ernesto’s – the Saravias, who treated us lavishly. We then went all the way to Necochea in one go, stopping in the shade of two weeping willows in Río Quequén Salado to barbecue a strip of ribs, which did us for both breakfast and lunch.

From Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolution, By Che Guevara

…we were eating our meager rations – half a sausage and two crackers – when we heard a shot. In a matter of seconds a hurricane of bullets – or at least this is what it seemed to my anxious mind during that trial by fire – rained on the troop of eighty-two men.

Granted, Lydia Guevara is not her grandfather but she is trading on his name..
