Admirers of cult heroes seldom know the real life story of their hero, and the real life story of the communist revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara is not well known by his admirers.

What Communism Really Looks Like

Che has become a symbol for anti-establishment rebellion against the abuse of power. The truth is the real Guevara was a mass-murderer with little to no regard for human life. He was personally responsible for taking countless lives often without sufficient or just reason.

To Guevara death was a necessity for revolution. His orders consisted of five words: “If in doubt, kill him.” Suspicion was all that was needed to end a human life.

In a speech at the Sierra Maestra, Guevara admitted, “We executed many people by firing squad without knowing if they were guilty. At times, the Revolution cannot stop to conduct much investigation; it has the obligation to triumph.”

Guevara interrogated a 17-year-old boy who was a soldier in Batista’s army. The boy begged Guevara not to kill him.

“I haven’t killed anyone. I just arrived here. My mother is a widow, and I am an only child. I joined the Army for the salary, to send it to her monthly. Don’t kill me, don’t kill me,” the boy pleaded.

Guevara responded with, “Why not?” then tied him down next a newly dug grave and shot him in the head.

Those T-shirts bearing Guevara’s likeness should have inscribed above Che’s image: “I wear a Che T-shirt, and I don’t know why.”

The founder of liberation theology, the Rev. Gustavo Gutierrez of Peru, received a hero’s welcome at the Vatican as Pope Francis continues his rehabilitation campaign to restore the once-criticized movement to prominence.

Liberation Theology is based on Marxist doctrine that interprets Scripture through the plight of the poor. In the 1950s when Marxism was making strides among the poor in South America, Gutierrez taught the gospel of wealth redistribution and social justice in Catholic communities.

In the 1980s Pope John Paul II and the Catholic hierarchy criticized Liberation Theology as a false, humanist doctrine dressed up in theological terms, and they chided the bishops and priests who proselytized it for misinterpreting Jesus’ preference for the poor as a Marxist call for armed rebellion.

Unlike Pope Benedict XVI, the former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger who spent much of his tenure at Mueller’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith battling liberation theology and disciplining some of its most famous defenders, the view toward Liberation Theology has changed now with the election of a Jesuit pope.

Pope Francis embraces the theology of Gutierrez and his backers as being perfectly in line with the church’s social teaching about the poor. And for 20 years, Barack Obama was a member of a church headed by his mentor the Reverend Jeremiah Wright who preached and taught Black Liberation Theology, which is the same Marxist, revolutionary, humanistic philosophy found in Gutierrez’s Liberation Theology.

Obama and Francis are scheduled to meet next month. Knowing that both share a Liberation Theology background, it’s a safe bet that social justice and global wealth redistribution will be a focal point of the discussion.
