”Executions?” Che Guevara exclaimed while addressing the hallowed halls of the U.N. General Assembly on December 9, 1964. ”Certainly we execute!” he declared, to the claps and cheers of that august body. ”And we will continue executing (emphasis THIS) as long as it is necessary! This is a war to the DEATH against the revolution’s enemies!”
”..If any person has a good word for the previous government that is good enough for me to have him shot”.
(As quoted in Cuba and the Rule of Law (1962), compiled by the International Commission of Jurists, Geneva, p. 185)
“Hatred as the central element of our struggle! Hatred that is intransigent…hatred so violent that it propels a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him violent and cold- blooded killing machine…We reject any peaceful approach. Violence is inevitable. To establish Socialism rivers of blood must flow! The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we’ll destroy him! These hyenas are fit only for extermination. We must keep our hatred alive and fan it to paroxysm! The victory of Socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!”
— Ernesto ”Che” Guevara speaking about Americans, April 1966 Message to the Tricontinental Conference in Havana, Cuba
”Sometimes democracy must be bathed in blood”.
”Not a single leaf moves in this country if I’m not the one moving it. I want that to be clear! ”
