Che lovers, and would-be lovers

How many liberals - especially women liberals - have you seen pictures of wearing a Che Guevera t-shirt or sweatshirt? I can't recall off-hand if I have spoken about my hatred for Jane Fonda on this blog before, especially her treatment and betrayal of our servicemen in Vietnam, but I just now finished reading an essay by Humberto Fontova where he quotes Fonda as saying one of her greatest regrets was not having had intercourse with Che.

Fontova goes on to talk about all the feminists and pretend-supporters of women, their rights, and of the need to protect them from abuse. As we have seen with the incredible and total silence on the subject of the abuse of women and female children by those followers of the religion of pedophilia, islam, these women were - and continue to be - silent on the subject of the horrible abuses of women in Cuba, by Che as well as by Castro and his regime. Here is the complete article:

Jane Fonda's Crush on Che Guevara

By Humberto Fontova


A new biography of Jane Fonda by Patricia Bosworth reveals a lifelong lament by the famous actress: “My biggest regret” Fonda is quoted during a “feminist consciousness-raising session,” according to the book’s account, “is I never got to f*** Che Guevara.”

In case you read Townhall, Ms Fonda, here’s some consolation, honey: “I used to call him El Gallo (the rooster)” recalled Carlos Figueroa who was Ernesto Guevara’s adolescent friend in Alta Gracia, Argentina. “I’d be visiting him and eating in his family’s dining room and whenever the poor servant girls would enter Ernesto would promptly grab her and force her to lay on the dining room table where he’d have rapid intercourse with her. Immediately afterwards he’d throw her out and continue eating as if nothing had happened.”

“Es un gallo—un gallo! (He’s a rooster!—rooster”) complained a scowling Berta Gonzalez a few years later upon emerging from her Mexico City bedroom summer of 1955. This was shortly after his Motorcycle Diary trip, when the hobo Ernesto Guevara was scribbling unreadable poetry and mooching off women in Mexico City, where he met Fidel and Raul Castro. Berta Gonzalez was a Cuban exile in Mexico at the time.

Gallo, as you might have guessed, is a common pejorative by Spanish-speaking women against men who terminate carnal encounters prematurely.

Alas, how the feminist sessionists reacted to Ms Fonda’s above-mentioned confession, and thus, the “raising of their consciousness,” is not mentioned in the book. But we can guess. After all, feminist swooning over Cuban Stalinism started early, and by the feminist movement’s very founders.

“Not only is (the Cuban Revolution) a great success but an example for the rest of the world!” gushed Simon De Beauvoir in March 1960. Her bellhop, Jean Paul Sartre, was not to be outdone. He crowned Che Guevara “the era’s most perfect man.” These “intellectual” hyperventilations 1960 set the tone for future ones of everyone from Maxine Waters’ to Jimmy Carter and from Ted Turner’s to George Mc Govern’s, and from Barbara Walters’ to Andrea Mitchell’s.

“Fidel Castro is old-fashioned, courtly–even paternal, a thoroughly fascinating figure!” (NBC’s Andrea Mitchell)

Alas, Cuban feminists view the Cuban Revolution somewhat differently from Hollywood, Georgetown and Manhattan feminists. When feminist icon Barbara Walters sat quivering alongside Fidel Castro in 1977 cooing: “Fidel Castro has brought very high literacy and great health-care to his country. His personal magnetism is powerful!” dozens of Cuban feminists suffered in torture chambers within walking distance of the hyperventilating Ms Barbara Walters.

“They started by beating us with twisted coils of wire recalls former political prisoner Ezperanza Pena from exile today. “I remember Teresita on the ground with all her lower ribs broken. Gladys had both her arms broken. Doris had her face cut up so badly from the beatings that when she tried to drink, water would pour out of her lacerated cheeks.”

“On Mother’s Day they allowed family visits,” recalls, Manuela Calvo from exile today.” But as our mothers and sons and daughters were watching, we were beaten with rubber hoses and high-pressure hoses were turned on us, knocking all of us the ground floor and rolling us around as the guards laughed and our loved-ones screamed helplessly.”

“When female guards couldn’t handle us male guards were called in for more brutal beatings. I saw teen-aged girls beaten savagely their bones broken their mouths bleeding,” recalls prisoner Polita Grau.

The gallant regime co-founded by Che Guevara jailed 35,150 Cuban women for political crimes, a totalitarian horror utterly unknown—not only in Cuba—but in the Western Hemisphere until the regime so “magnetic” to Barbara Walters, Andrea Mitchell, Diane Sawyer, Jane Fonda, etc. Some of these Cuban ladies suffered twice as long in Castro’s Gulag as Alexander Solzhenitsyn suffered in Stalin’s.

Their prison conditions were described by former political prisoner Maritza Lugo. “The punishment cells measure 3 feet wide by 6 feet long. The toilet consists of an 8 inch hole in the ground through which cockroaches and rats enter, especially in cool temperatures the rat come inside to seek the warmth of our bodies and we were often bitten. The suicide rate among women prisoners was very high.”

Upon the death of Raul Castro’s wife Vilma Espin in 2006 the Washington Post gushed that: “she was a champion of women’s rights and greatly improved the status of women in Cuba, a society known for its history of machismo.” Actually, in 1958 Cuba had more female college graduates as a percentage of population than the U.S.

This Castroite “improvement of status” and “good life “for Cuban women also somehow tripled Cuban women’s pre-revolution suicide rate, making Cuban women the most suicidal on earth. This according to a 1998 study by scholar Maida Donate-Armada that uses some of the Cuban regime’s own figures.

On Christmas Eve of 1961 a Cuban woman named Juana Diaz spat in the face of the executioners who were binding and gagging her. Castro and Che’s Russian-trained secret police had found her guilty of feeding and hiding “bandits” (Cuban rednecks who took up arms to fight the Stalinist theft of their land to build Soviet –style Kolkhozes.) When the blast from Castroite firing squad demolished her face and torso Juana was six months pregnant.

Thousands upon thousands of Cuban women have drowned, died of thirst or have been eaten alive by sharks attempting to flee the Washington Post’s dutifully transcribed “improvement of status.” This from a nation formerly richer than half the nations of Europe and deluged by immigrants from same.

In 1962, a Cuban Catholic nun named Aida Rosa Perez was overheard in a private conversation saying things about Fidel Castro and Che Guevara similar (but milder) than those Jane Fonda and Joy Behar trumpet about Republicans. Sister Rosa Perez was sentenced to 12 years at hard labor. Two years into her, while toiling in the sun inside Castro's Gulag and surrounded by leering guards, Sister Rosa collapsed from a heart attack.

The Cuban Archive project headed Mrs Maria Werlau has fully documented the firing squad executions of 11 Cuban women in the early days of the regime. Another 219 women died from various brutalities and tortures while in prison. The Taliban has nothing on the regime co-founded by Che Guevara. So I trust you’ll excuse these Cuban ladies if they regard the “struggles” of Betty Freidan, Gloria Steinem and Jane Fonda as a trifle overblown. And for many of them, though it’s utterly ignored by the MSM, the feminist struggle continues.

  1. Glad you picked up on this one. Did you see Humberto's column in today's Town Hall? It's here. The other night on Fox's trainwreck "The Five", Bob Beckel, a 99% fact-free commentator, praised Che as a "Freedom Fighter". Humberto schools him.

    In my "Mysteries of Life" file, I don't really understand why we take out Daffy Qadaffi in Libya - whose people had one of the highest standards of living in the region while not truly free people - and we let genuinely brutally repressive dictators like Castro, Chavez and Kim Yung Ill go about life. You almost have to go along with those who say some other sort of agenda is driving things; it least that's logical.

  2. Thanks, SG. I'll post that article next. Of course there is another agenda - it is the only logical assumption you can make given the facts. I'm not bright enough to say what it is, but perhaps it was as simple as Obama's need to kiss some UN backside (on our part), to show how willing he is to make America dance to the UNs tune, be a part of global governance.

    Libya has no real friends (except perhaps for Scotland, who released the TWA bomber in exchange for some oil), so it is a safe place to unleash NATO. North Korea is protected by China and is tied tightly to Iran, so it remains inviolate. Cuba is every socialist's wet dream of flipping off America just 70 miles from her shore. Chavez is a net oil exporter who also enjoys flipping off America, so he fits in with the whole anti-American meme at the UN. They are perfectly happy to have us fund and house most of the UN, but they still hate us (with the exception of Israel, Britain, Australia, the Czech Republic, and a few other friends who Obama has been screwing over every chance he gets.

    My real fear on Libya is that there is a concerted effort on the part of the nations in the UN to unleash the muslim Brotherhood upon as many countries as is possible in the Middle East and Africa, and Libya was seen as a good place to trow into turmoil so that they can get a foothold, as they seem to be doing in Egypt. It has always been the collectivist's strategy to upset a country's economy and/or government so that the Marxists could move into positions of power more easily and more quickly than by simple infiltration. Can you imagine the absolute _glee_ felt by Marxists around the world when Obama was elected and started appointing Marxists like Dunn and Jarrett and the rest into his cabinet and the White House?

    The muslim/Arab Brotherhood may not be pure Marxists, but the Marxists probably believe they will be able to control and/or direct them once they have taken over their various countries via the institution of Sharia or simply through demographic jihad, as they are doing in Europe. Either way, I'm guessing 75-80% of the countries in the UN will be satisfied by a new Caliphate.

    Peasants still living in the seventeenth century would be so much easier to control than an America that still believed in and operated by the Constitution. Although that America may no longer exist. It certainly won't if Obama gets re-elected through voter fraud or a totally insane entitlement population (including Undocumented Democrats).


Sorry, folks. I was completely ignorant about comment rules. Anyone can post, but I'd prefer a name, even if it is made up. Anonymous posts just seem cheap, if you know what I mean. Also, if you want to argue a point, that's fine. Cheap shots and name calling towards me or another person commenting (ad hominem) is rude and will get you banned. Other than that, I'd love to get some comments.
