In Santa Clara, Cuba there sits a museum honoring the Communist mass murder, Che Guevara (pictured above). Guides at this museum are known to to point out that one of the ways Cubans pay homage to Che, is to do extra work every week for no pay.
To what would be his father’s extreme disappointment, it would seem Che Guevara’s son has found a different, and rather capitalistic way to pay homage to his father. Charge people thousands of dollars for a service.
The Daily Star reports that Che’s youngest son is selling expensive motorcycle tours in Cuba to honor of his Communist father:
“The youngest son of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara has opened an agency offering two-wheel tours of the Caribbean island nation on Harley-Davidsons, in a nod to his father’s passion for motorcycles.
“The Marxist guerrilla’s storied motorbike journey through South America was immortalized in the 2004 film “Motorcycle Diaries,” directed by Brazil’s Walter Salles and starring Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal.
“The trip, spanning from December 1951 to July 1952, took the 23-year-old revolutionary to Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela.
“Now, Che’s son Ernesto Guevara wants to honor his father’s famous ride by giving visitors to Cuba a “unique” trip through the country on Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
“Prices start at $3,000 per person and go up to $5,800 for six or nine day trips. Airline costs are not included.”
The irony that a murdering Communist, who died trying to violently spread Marxism, had a son who is now relying on capitalism to earn a buck in the very Communist country he helped establish, is only overshadowed by the fact that his son is also using Harley Davidson motorcycles made in the very country Che Guevara said was his worst enemy…the United States of America.
If that isn’t enough to make an old Marxist roll over in his grave, nothing will.
