“UNESCO continued its longstanding tradition of making a mockery of its own institution when it opted to venerate and memorialize the life of a blood thirsty, murderous sadist, Che Guevara, by including his works as an entry in its ‘Memory of the World Register.’ This decision is more than an insult to the families of those Cubans who were lined up and summarily executed by Che and his merciless cronies but it also serves as a direct contradiction to the UNESCO ideals of encouraging peace and universal respect for human rights," Ros-Lehtinen said in a statement in response to the move. “This latest reprehensible action is a microcosm of the existing problems within UNESCO today. There isn’t any semblance of common sense left in that body. From its decision to accept a non-existent state of Palestine into its membership, to glorifying Che’s ruthless crimes against humanity, UNESCO deserves no funding from US taxpayers. The Obama Administration is wrong to continue to seek to restore funding to UNESCO. The Administration must immediately end its push to send $225 million in American taxpayer money to UNESCO that would enable that organization to keep undermining our friend and ally, the democratic Jewish State of Israel, and would insult the memories of those who suffered under Che and continue to suffer under the Castro brothers.”
As a reminder, Guevara is responsible for mass poverty, death and labor camps in Cuba. He regularly assassinated political opponents and gays. Guevara executed more people in his first three years in power than Hitler did in six years.
Humberto Fontova wrote an entire book exposing the real Che Guevara and his cult of followers. Fontova discussed his atrocities a few years ago with Glenn Beck.
The United Nations is at it again doing what the body of corruption does best: honoring communist mass murderers. According to Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the United Nations is planning to honor Che Guevara by adding “The Life and Works of Ernesto Che Guevara” to the Memory of the World Register.
