The Venezuelans are marking the 40th anniversary of Che Guevara’s death in the appropriate spirit:
Jesus Espinoza, a municipal mayor in the mountain state of Merida, said: “A group from outside the municipality inconsiderately destroyed the monument to Che Guevara.”
Local media said a group identifying itself as the Patriotic Command of the Plateau took responsibility for ruining the 8ft glass monument inscribed with a message to honour the icon of Cuba’s 1959 revolution.
“We do not want a monument to Che, he is not an example for our children,” said a note left at the scene of the monument shattered by six gunshots.
The comments below the story are worth reading. I was tickled by this one:
“We do not want a monument to Che, he is not an example for our children,”
but leaving a street full of glass shards is a great example to children, if not a downright hazard.
Remember, children, next time you go out at night to blow up a statue to some leftist icon, be responsible and take a dustpan and broom.
