"Obama HQ has Che Guevara and Cuban flag on the wall"

Imagine if it were discovered that the campaign office of a Republican candidate for president had a small picture of Augusto Pinochet in it? The firestorm of outrage from the Left and their MSM allies would be immediate. Reporters would be hounding the candidate asking him why one of his campaign offices has a picture of the Chilean strongman. This would also be a big topic for the talking heads on the tube. However, when it turns out that a big picture of Che Guevara on a Cuban flag appears prominently in a Houston area campaign office of Barack Obama as you can see in this VIDEO, there is no reaction from the MSM. The amazing thing here is that the Obama campaign workers didn't even think it was unusual to have such an image on their wall otherwise they would have sanitized it before letting the Fox News crew film their office. So was this just some sort of strange fluke? Apparently not. Here is another VIDEO of an Obama volunteer with her own Che Guevara flag on the wall. Remember, these are two different Obama campaign offices in JUST the Houston area. How many other Obama offices around the country also have/had images of thug communist Che Guevara? I said "had" because the word might have already gotten out to the Obama people to sanitize their offices due to "rightwing paranoia" and the possible "swiftboating" of dear Obama. Meanwhile the DUmmies are alternately defensive and worried about the Che Guevara flag showing up in a Houston campaign office(s) as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Obama HQ has Che Guevara and Cuban flag on the wall." So let us now watch the DUmmies both defend and agonize over the Che Guevara image at Obama HQ in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering if Drudge or Rush will be featuring this story later today, is in the [brackets]:


Obama HQ has Che Guevara and Cuban flag on the wall


[Which the DUmmies heartily approve except for the fact that it might cause poor widdle Obama to be "swiftboated" by EVIL rightwingers.]


Bayou City has a new Obama campaign office, and the Houston branch of FOX has a video report here. Not big news. But if you watch the video, you might notice something a bit... uh... weird:


[You mean like a communist thug being presented heroically on a foreign flag on the wall?]


Yes, it seems that they have a Cuban flag - with a superimposed portrait of Che Guevara - on the wall. Now, I appreciate that some progressives admire Che. But when you've got TV cameras rolling, is it really the best idea to be identifying yourself with a man who most of the country (including a lot of Dems) consider to have been a bloody murderer?


[Psst! We really love Che Guevara but we must keep it a secret from outsiders. It is the love that dare not speak its name.]


It suggests to me that some of these people are far from ready for the primetime. McCain will eat amateurs like these for breakfast. It also kinda makes me wonder what sort of "new support" is being brought into the party. I think Dems can live quite happily without the Viva Fidel contingent.


[You mean live without DUmmies since they are mostly of the Viva Fidel contingent as were the Obama folks shown in these videos.]


This is a blunder for sure


[Yes. It is an error to let outsiders find out how we commie-libs REALLY feel.]


I noticed DU has a Che avatar too. Big deal

[Correct. Che Guevara avatars abound in DUmmieland.]


So does almost every college dorm in America...and who is volunteering there. Still probably not a brilliant idea to have that right there for the cameras when trying to win in Texas.


[Psst! Don't let outsiders know how much we love that commie thug!]


Bad move, people. That will probably be a sound byte by tomorrow.


[Good news! The MSM is still ignoring this.]


Hasta la Victoria Siempre! Viva la Revolucion!


[Socialismo o Muerte!]


I noticed that there are no Obama signs there or any other indications either.



[Better make an appointment with your optomotrist. There is an Obama poster clearly visible in the video next to the Che Guevara flag.]


Apparently, you didn't watch the video. There's a close-up of the Obama poster in it.


[Thank you for pointing out the obvious.]


That has to be fake


[Sure, sure. Those Che Guevara flags were photoshopped in by the EVIL Fox News.]


Is Che Guevara the boogie man? Please let me know. My understanding is that he is a great Latin American Hero, and yes, he was a revolutionary. Sounds like that's what George Washington was as well. I have seen many here at DU with that avatar. Are we really that concerned about the f*cked up GOP assholes to this extent?


[In DUmmieland that commie is a great hero.]


"To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary...These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate. We must create the pedagogy of the The Wall! (El Paredón)" --Ernesto 'Che' Guevara


[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]


Actually, SMART people watched the video link and saw THESE ARE HIS PEOPLE, with HIS POSTER on the wall, it is HIS BUTTON on HER COAT, and they are IN HIS/THEIR CAMPAIGN OFFICE. Maybe my remarks were stupid. MAYBE, just maybe, it is really NOT their flag - but good luck with that since it IS next to OBAMA'S poster, it IS behind OBAMA's supporters, and it IS in OBAMA's campaign office.

[Not much room for deniability there. Hee! Hee!]


A blind dog can open an "office" It is in no way official or sanctioned.


[Did that same blind dog also eat your homework?]


go che. Power to the People.


[Which Obama office do you work at?]


Surely you realize that this can be used against him?


[And you DUmmies will call it "swiftboating."]


The Republicans are going to tell everyone who Che Guevara is!!!


[Damn them for that history lesson!]


These people need to think and be more careful. I guarantee you that there are Repubs collecting any kind of material like this to use against him if he is the nominee.


[Li'l Beaver is also collecting this material. Hee! Hee!]


I won't say it's not an office or that it's not paid staff, but what with it being Fox News and all could they have invented this? Could we put it past them?


[Toss out that "fake video" lifeline.]


I'll be going down there for the volunteer meeting at seven Tuesday. I'll letcha know if it's still up. I expect that it won't be.

[Yes. Let us know if that Obama office has been sanitized.]


I find it very difficult to believe anyone interested enough in politics to join a campaign would be naive enough to not understand what effect that flag would have. I just don't believe someone in that position could be that ignorant.


[I don't have any trouble believing this. With the plethora of Che Guevara T-shirts and posters out there, leftists would think that a Che flag on a campaign office wall is quite normal. It happened not just once but TWICE in the Houston area.]


Unbelievable. I can see the fall commercial now. I we need is Barack riding around in a tank with a helmet like Dukakis


[While wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt.]


Oh no Freerepublic already has this as one of their top stories


[Also the DUmmie FUnnies. Hee! Hee!]


The art of Swiftboating consists in smearing the opponent, repeating a lie a million times, until it's too late for all the damage to be undone.


[So what part of the Che Guevara flag on the Obama campaign office wall is a smear?]

I wonder how the DUmmies would react if someone had a Confederate flag with a image of Robert E. Lee superimposed on it hanging next to a portrait of Obama and that was shown on CNN? Would they still say things like "A blind dog can open an "office" It is in no way official or sanctioned" or "Hasta la Victoria Siempre! Viva la Revolucion!" and then ignore it? Somehow, I doubt it.

But, but... With John Kerry, it was eyewitnesses who corrected an egregious batch of lies and fabrications to set the record straight!

I though THAT was 'SwiftBoating'!

In any case, what 'lie' are they referring to? That the Cuban/Che flag is in an Obama office?

Why stop there? Che only slaughtered 500 or so peasants. Why not put up an Islamic flag with a picture of bin Laden? He's killed much more than that.

They're probably referring to the general belief that he was a revolutionary "leader." After all, he didn't do very well in Congo-Kinshasa and Bolivia. As a matter of fact, his skills as a revolutionary leader proved to be, well, lacking since he failed at leading, fighting, and winning a revolution in both countries.

I don't know which is worse. The fact that there is this flag/pic in an Obama office, which I'm SURE his national campaign office will totally disavow or the fact that Che is STILL to this day, revered by so many on the left OR the fact that the news outlet didn't even bother to mention it OR the fact that this story will NEVER make it to the MSM.. Ever...

Ignorant, deluded, leftists. THE #1product of our wonderful educational system whose MAIN goal is to indocrinate. Looks like they continue to succeed eh?

From volokh.com:

Recent books by Humberto Fontova and Alvaro Vargas Llosa describe the real Che, and will hopefully cut down the number of his admirers. Among the lowlights, partly summarized by Fontova in this two part interview with CNS News (here and here), and by Vargas here:

1. Che was responsible for the execution of thousands of political prisoners in Cuba (most of them purely for their opposition to Castro's communist policies or for no reason at all).

2. Che enjoyed torturing and abusing the prisoners, including children.

3. Che was instrumental in setting up the Castro regime's massive forced labor camps and secret police apparatus.

4. Che tried to organize campaigns of terrorism against civilians in the US and elsewhere (though he largely failed in these efforts).

5. Far from being merely a Third World nationalist or pragmatic leftist, he was a committed, hard-line Stalinist, even going so far as to call himself "Stalin II" early in his career.


He also died screaming and crying like a little bitch, begging for his life. Tough revolutionary, indeed.

Viva La Obama!

So the fuck what? Does this sort of thing terrify you on a regular basis? Two pictures of Che Guevara? The same tired old picture that achieved icon status in the 60's and 70's? So so scary. What the hell is wrong with you people? Thank God no one had a picture of Godzilla, Rodan, or Satan pinned up somewhere. All your heads would be exploding......hmmmm.

I hope so too, John. Know why? Because that's when we'll realize how serious a problem this really is. It seems to me, this deadly predisposition to romanticize revolutionaries has raised its ugly, cancerous head before. Robin Hood, for example - a tumor on the spine of humanity. Lawrence of Arabia - probably gay. Jesus? Naw. But no one's going to tell me Jessie James wasn't a lovable rogue. And a shout out to Bonnie and Clyde.

Godzilla and Rodan are fictional. Satan is an imaginary being. Che on the other hand, personally ordered and supervised the killing of thousands. An eight year old boy went running to his father during the firing squad. His dad was tied to a post, awaiting the bullet he deserved as an enemy of the people. The kid refused to leave his father's side. So brave revolutionary Che drew his sidearm and shot the kid. My nanny when I was young was Cuban, and she got out of the hellhole her country became. She saw the whole thing. You ever notice how free Cubans hate communism like few others can? Because they know the evil that men do.

Leftist symbolism, such as that evident in the display of Che Guevara propaganda, seems to be important to the Barack Obama campaign. Four months ago, I pointed out another example of it in a post, Photo on Obama Web Site Raises Questions. In that post, I questioned the subliminal message the liberal Democrat hoped to convey by posting on his campaign website a photo of Obama sitting in front of a framed photo of Muhammad Ali standing over a knocked-down opponent in a boxing ring. Oh, the symbolism!

Bob, I think most here know who Che is. You should tell the nutjobs who ignorantly display the portrait of a murder who Che was as they don't seem to know.

BTW, would you still say "Y'all got to be kidding me" if it was a Republican campaign headquarters displaying a Nazi flag with the picture of Hitler superimposed upon it? Somehow, I don't think you'd be so dismissive.

Who knows, PJ? How many people would know what Pinochet looks like? It's interesting you bring him into the discussion. Why would the right hang a picture of Pinochet on a wall somewhere? Are you secretly telling us they do? Or might this be a what's called a straw-man?

We'll keep our eye open Pinochet pictures.

Keep in mind that we wouldn't be scared of them.

Anonymous 2:42AM - Are you mildly retarded? Yes, Islamofascism is a threat. To ignore it is suicide (educate yourself on the goals of such an ideology). "Pictures of Che Guevera" don't put us over any edge (most of us laugh at the ignorance of those displaying the iconized image)... It is pertinent, however, in a campaign season that a frontrunner has such moonbattery on display at one of his offices.

Let me ask you something, and please read VERY slowly, so you can attempt to grasp it: You leftards are always associating Republicans with Hitler... What if a whackjob for McCain's campaign superimposed Hitler over a flag at a McCain campaign headquarters? Not only would the left side of the blogosphere light up with feigned disgust, the MSM would be all over it.
If you think an Obama supporer who idolizes a mass murderer (who, again, died like a little bitch) is not newsworthy, you really need to lower your doseages.

There hasn't been another attack in America since 9/11.. That's no accident. That's the result of taking the fight to the enemy instead of letting the terrorists bringing the fight to us. We're safe BECAUSE of President Bush and his policies and there's no denying that. Too bad that's something your "side" will never admit.
