United Nations Celebrates Birthday of Mass Murderer Che Guevara

The official Spanish-language Twitter account of UNESCO, the United Nations’ cultural agency, celebrated the birthday of Irish-Argentine mass murderer Ernesto “Che” Guevara on Monday with a selected excerpt of his “historic” speech to the U.N. in 1964.

Guevara, born to an economically comfortable family in Argentina, became a central figure in the 1959 Cuban Revolution alongside Fidel Castro. Guevara routinely discussed in his writings the need to kill opponents, how he personally enjoyed killing others, and was responsible for many of the thousands of firing squad executions in the aftermath of Castro’s hijacking of the country. Guevara also wrote extensively about his distaste for black people and lead an initiative to use slave labor to turn gay people into “men.”

Despite this, Guevara has become a fashion icon and popular figure on the left. President Barack Obama posed before a monument to Guevara during his visit to Havana in 2016.

The official UNESCO English-language Twitter account did not appear to celebrate Guevara’s birthday on Monday, posting instead praise for European climate celebrity Greta Thunberg.
