Cuban Revolutionary Che Guevara imprisoned and murdered many homosexuals in his days fighting the “good fight” that so many progressives seem to admire. This fact of his history seems to have been wiped from the general progressive consciousness. Today, the University of California in San Diego even has a “Che Cafe” that is supposed to be a safe space in honor of the socialist icon.
Members of the LGBTQ endorsing violently homophobic Che Guevara is like African-Americans endorsing Planned Parenthood’s racist founder, Margaret Sanger. And the left wonders why conservatives often label them ignorant hypocrites.
PragerU’s Will Witt went on campus to get some perspectives from students. Surprisingly, very few actually knew much about their Marxist icon. They recognized his face from T-shirts and even professed to “love him,” but seemed oblivious to his actual history.
If it’s on a T-shirt worn by progressives, it must be safe-space-approved, right?
