Che! The West's Fatal Embrace of Communism

by Henry Makow, Ph.D.

Americans can't expect to avoid destruction as long as they continue to embrace Communism in all its myriad disguises.

Symptomatic of the problem is a new four hr. 17 min biopic of Soviet Comintern agent and terrorist Che Guevara. Rather than make movies about genuine American heroes, Hollywood is celebrating people dedicated to the destruction of Western Civilization.

Movie critic Mick LaSalle of the San Francisco Chronicle cannot understand why Director Steven Soderbergh made the movie:

"If Soderbergh made as idol-worshiping an epic about George Washington or Abraham Lincoln - actual heroes with tangible, positive legacies - people would gag at the naive treatment.. Instead of making the case for Guevara as a hero, Soderbergh just assumes we all agree.
