Cult 'hero' cold-blooded executioner
By PAUL JACKSON
I walk into a store on Stephen Avenue Mall and start browsing through the various knickknacks on display.
Then I stalked -- not walked -- out.
Prominently on display were Che Guevara sweatshirts and caps. Seething, I head to the nearest bar. And just as quickly, head out again.
The fellow be-hind the bar was wearing a Mao Zedong sweatshirt.
Why my disgust?
Well, to the uninitiated -- to the uneducated -- Che Guevara and Mao were two of the most evil mass murderers of the 20th century.
Guevara was named as "Fidel Castro's executioner" by Cuban writer Humberto Fontova, and it is estimated Mao slaughtered as many as 80 million of his own people.
