What A Shame

A monument to Che Guevara, put up by the Chavez government, has been destroyed in Venezuela:

"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, according to El Universal newspaper.

Can't say that I blame them. I wonder if the people who did this were emboldened by Hugo's poll defeat? And if and how the government will punish them?

Given Che's methods, taking it down with six gunshots seems appropriate.

I doubt that this was motivated by Chavez's recent setback, since the story is dated October 20. Still pleasant to read, of course.

Too bad they didn't shoot Chavez and leave the statue as a reminder to other Marxists.

The statue should have surrendered in a cowardly fashion like the real che.
