RFK widow Ethel Kennedy ‘loves’ Che Guevara, ‘has a subversive streak
NY Post ^ | 4/15/2020 | Carl Campanile and Bernadette Hogan

Ethel Kennedy has learned to stop worrying and love Che Guevara.

The 92-year-old Kennedy clan matriarch’s late husband Robert and brother-in-law, President John F. Kennedy, may have faced off against a Russia-aligned Cuba in the infamous 1962 Missile Crisis — but that didn’t stop her from putting the face of the communist nation’s revolutionary hero on a mantle at her Palm Beach home, The Post has learned.

In fact, her family says she’s been a fan of Guevara for years — and makes no apology about it.

“My mom loves Che Guevara. Her dog is named Che,” her son, Robert Kennedy Jr., told The Post. “My mom has a subversive streak.”

So it wasn't Andrew Cuomo's daughter who was the Che lover. It was Grandma.

Subversive??? Torturing and killing those who don’t share your political philosophy isn’t subversive. It’s psychopathic.

I think JFK and RFK faked their opposition to Castro.

Explain what JFK did at The Bay of Pigs.

Che Hated Homosexuals

7 – Che Hated Homosexuals

Guevara was a notorious homophobe. He campaigned to have gay people placed in prison, and when they were interned, they were treated worse than the rest of the prisoners. According to one inmate, gays were treated like beasts, and they were the last to come out for meals.

If a gay prisoner committed even the slightly infraction, he was beaten mercilessly. Admittedly, Cuba’s LGBT rights record was bad before the revolution, but under Castro and Guevara, concentration camps were created and filled with homosexuals, dissidents, Afro-Cuban priests and anyone else accused of crimes against the revolution. He helped set up the infamous camp Guanahacabibes camp in 1960. One of the reasons why gay men were placed in camps is because they were deemed ‘unfit to serve’ their mandatory time in the Cuban military.

Che referred to these groups of people as ‘scum.’ He herded homosexuals, priests, dissidents and other ‘undesirables’ into buses and trucks where they were taken to the camps. A significant number of prisoners never returned as they were beaten, tortured, raped and murdered. In the camp where homosexuals were sent, there was a sign which said ‘Work Will Make You Men.’ It is obviously influenced by the infamous ‘work will set you free’ slogan on Nazi Concentration Camps.
