    Che Guevara's quotes on your IPhone?

    The following article states that Apple is among "More than 200 companies have joined a boycott of (Glenn) Beck’s program,” reports the Washington Post." I would love to know the names of the other 199, wouldn't you?

    Apple Boycotts Glenn Beck—Promotes Che Guevara!
    Che Guevara's quotes on your IPhone
    By Humberto Fontova Saturday, April 3, 2010
    “More than 200 companies have joined a boycott of (Glenn) Beck’s program,” reports the Washington Post. “A handful of advertisers, such as (IPhone owner) Apple, have abandoned Fox altogether,” continues the WaPo article.



    We can only assume this Apple “boycott” was prompted by what CBS’s Katie Couric (quoting the Fox commentator’s critics) describes as Beck’s “inflammatory, unfair, despicable, hateful rhetoric.”

    This same hyper-sensitive-to-hate-speech Apple, by the way, has just launched an IPhone application featuring Che Guevara’s quotes. Yes! “Now you can carry around Che Guevara’s quotes on your IPhone!”

    Alas, many of us, though not customer of this unquestionably hip product, suspect that most of Che Guevara’s hippest quotes are missing from this hippest of IPhone apps. Among those we fear were overlooked by the hyper-sensitive-to-hate-speech, Apple are:

    “The Negro is indolent and spends his money on frivolities and booze, whereas the European is forward-looking, organized and intelligent.”

    “The negro has maintained his racial purity by his well known habit of avoiding baths” (as if Che had room to talk)

    “My nostrils dilate while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood…Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any surrendered enemy that falls in my hands! With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!” (From Che’s own diaries, later immortalized as The Motorcycles Diaries, though we note that executive producer Robert Redford “overlooked” this unquestionably dramatic citation for his movie.)

    “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 victory of Socialism is well worth millions of atomic victims!” (thus spaketh the icon of flower-children)

    “The U.S. is the great enemy of mankind! Against those hyenas there is no option but extermination! If the nuclear missiles had remained (in Cuba) we would have fired them against the heart of the U.S. including New York City!”

    “Don’t Shoot! I’m Che! I’m worth to you more alive than dead!” The plea was whimpered with a Eddie Haskell-in-front-of June Cleaver-esque smile on Oct. 8th 1967 in Quebrada de Yuro, Bolivia, as Che dropped his fully-loaded weapons. At the time, Che, dragging along his guerrilla charge Willi, was trying to slink away from a firefight when confronted by two Bolivian soldiers.

    That’s exactly two flunky Communist guerrillas facing two Bolivian soldiers, by the way. But then, Che’s bloodthirsty bluster (see above) always had a habit of evaporating when facing men (or boys) capable of defending themselves. His stock-in-trade was blasting their skulls apart from five feet while they were bound and gagged. (Amazingly, Steven Soderbergh and Benicio del Toro overlooked any depictions of such guaranteed drama in their recent movie.)

    “Mexicans are a rabble of illiterate Indians.”
    “Mexicans are a rabble of illiterate Indians.” (note the Che Guevara banners and T-shirts at Nation of Aztlan gatherings.)

    “Bolivian campesinos are simply Animalitos” (Note Bolivian President Evo Morales’ frequent genuflections to the ghost of Che Guevara and to his puppeteer, Fidel Castro.)

    “Youth must refrain from ungrateful questioning of governmental mandates. Insteadthey must dedicate themselves to study, work and military service. The very spirit of rebellion is reprehensible. (“Che is our fifth band member!” Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello)

    Che the Lionhearted’s image indeed belongs on college campuses. But it’s usually in the wrong places. He belongs in the marketing, PR, advertising—and especially—psychology departments. His lessons and history are fascinating and valuable, but only in light of Sigmund Freud or P.T. Barnum. “One born every minute,” Mr. Barnum? If only you’d lived to see the Che phenomenon. Actually, 10 are born every second.

    Here’s a “guerrilla hero” who in real life never fought in a guerrilla war. When he finally brushed up against one, he was routed and surrendered while a sniveling, whimpering wreck.

    Here’s a cold-blooded murderer who executed thousands without trial, who claimed that judicial evidence was an “unnecessary bourgeois detail,” who stressed that “revolutionaries must become cold-killing machines motivated by pure hate,” who stayed up till dawn for months at a time signing death warrants for innocent and honorable men, whose office in La Cabana had a window where he could watch the executions—and today his T-shirts adorn people who oppose capital punishment!

    Here’s a humorless teetotaler, a plodding paper-pusher, a notorious killjoy and all-around fuddy-duddy—and you see his T-shirt on MTV’s Spring Break revelers! Perhaps competent psychologists (if any exist) will explain this some day.

    Che excelled in one thing: mass murder of defenseless men. He was a Stalinist to the core, a plodding bureaucrat and a calm, cold-blooded—but again, never in actual battle—killer. Che’s true legacy is simply one of terror, murder and sniveling cowardice.

    Apple, we trust, will soon become as sensitive to torture and mass-murder by the Stalinist who craved to incinerate the nation that headquarters their office and facilitates their profits, as they claim to be over a few wisecracks by Fox commentators

    Thanks for posting that.... So I got to wondering, who is on this list of 200 advertisers who are boycotting. So i did a little poking around via Google and found this article....

    Advertisers deserting Fox News' Glenn Beck - MarketWatch

    But wait, there's more!

    So. it listed some of their advertisers and their statements, but they kept mentioning this ColorOfChange thing. So I looked them up.... and on the about screen is where it gets really good!

    ColorOfChange.org

    So, one of the former founders is Van Jones. You know, the guy that Glenn Beck is always railing on. Ok, so this is a former founder. But this Rucker guy who is the current head of the group, "...served as Director of Grassroots Mobilization for MoveOn.org Political Action and Moveon.org Civic Action..." You know, MoveOn.org the Progressive organization that helped get the President in the White House, the same organization that is backed and funded by George Soros (sp?). Thus, the entire group of people that Glenn Beck is always warning about.

    Wonder if those companies know they are being duped....

    Interesting no?

    Glen beck is an entertainer

    Glen Beck is the guy that liberals love to hate. He believes global warming is a hoax, he spends most of his energy railing against the Obama administration, constitutional violations can bring him to tears and he's become a conservative hero, of sorts, to a particular segment of the country.


    "You're not alone," Beck will tell viewers a line that has become a rallying cry for angry right wingers who feel as though their voices aren't being heard by the current administration.
    Glenn Beck is a champion of the little guy who fights the good fight against the uber-rich liberals who are ruining this country.

    Well now you can thank Glenn by buying his modest 6 bedroom 8 bath house. It has eight fireplaces that will come in handy when Obama turns us into the Soviet Union Via the 1950's.

    Glen Beck is not hurting.Fox News' "The Glenn Beck Show" is among the network's most popular and the New York Times reported this morning that Fox News is the number one news network on television. Posted Dec 17th 2009 1:00PM


    Beck, who purchased the Colonial style home in December of 2005 for $4,250,000, has it on the market with an asking price of $3,999,000. Built in 2004 and set on 2.8 acres, the home includes six bedrooms, five full bathrooms and three half, swimming pool, hot tub, deck, four-car garage, and has 8,720 square feet.
    Glenn Beck's Connecticut mansion is on the market for almost $4 million.

    The conservative commentator's New Caanan home has been listed at $3,999,000 over $250,000 less than he and wife Tanya paid for the home in 2005.

    Beck made an estimated $23 million in 2008.

    The 8,720 square foot colonial sits on 2.8 acres in the upscale Fairfield County town that CNN Money declared the top-earning town in America in 2008. It boasts 6 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms and 3 half-baths, a pool and a spa/hot tub, and a water view.

    VERY interesting, brickler. If one digs deep enough, we discover where the roots lie!
