You don't see me beating people wearing a shirt with a British flag on it or cursing at someone wearing a t-shirt that says "Praise Allah!" on it yet those could also invoke 'painful memories' of past events. Water off a duck's back, water under the bridge, water <adjective> <noun>. Get over it and ***** about something that is truly wrong.
I have to agree with Damien here. It was a bad point in history. Get over it. If I asked or expected someone to apologize for doing, saying or wearing/using something that gave me bad memories I would have at least one apology per day.

This is like me saying that Pearl Harbor/Vietnam/Somalia gives me bad memories. Heck I wasn't even alive for one and for the others I was too young or wasn't involved personally.

Her apologizing for having an item that she bought with her own money for her own purposes that does nothing but perhaps offend some people's sensibilities is outrageous.

My questions is this: Did it really offend the persons in question or is it just another way to point fingers at Americans?

I see things that offend me all the time or think are inappropriate in a public venue. I do not question that person or ask them to apologize.

*Whines* But they are sooo cute.



How great is that, one woman was able to offend an entire nation without even opening her mouth.

Quote:
THE REAL CHE GUEVARA
"Crazy with fury I will stain my rifle red while slaughtering any enemy that falls in my hands! My nostrils dilate
while savoring the acrid odor of gunpowder and blood. With the deaths of my enemies I prepare my being for
the sacred fight and join the triumphant proletariat with a bestial howl!"
"Hatred as an element of struggle; unbending hatred for the enemy, which pushes a human being beyond his
natural limitations, making him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold-blooded killing machine. This is
what our soldiers must become … " Che Guevara

Quote:
Few fashion accessories are as ubiquitous on liberal American university campuses as clothing depicting the visage of Ernesto "Che" Guevara, the Argentine-born compa�ero of Cuban despot Fidel Castro. An amusing game would involve counting which items are more commonplace in Harvard Yard-Che t-shirts or iPods.

While Che's chief attraction-his handsomeness-makes for clever merchandizing, the legions who bear his image are often ignorant of a somewhat more salient feature of his persona: Guevara's participation in mass murder and his role as architect of the well-oiled apparatus of state repression that is modern-day Cuba.

Following the collapse of the Batista regime, Guevara served as commander of the La Caba�a prison, where he personally presided over the extrajudicial executions of hundreds-perhaps thousands-of former regime officials and opponents of Castro's dictatorship.

Former dissident Armando Valladares has documented Che's personal involvement in the torture and execution of political prisoners. Lest one dismiss these atrocities as relics of a bygone era, a recent Amnesty International report reminds us that, "Cuban authorities continue to suppress any form of dissent by methods such as harassment, threats, intimidation, detention and long-term imprisonment." In short, the very methods Guevara helped pioneer.

In a July 2005 New Republic essay entitled "The Killing Machine," Alvaro Vargas Llosa offers a chilling description of Guevara's serial bloodletting in the name of communist revolution. Llosa's title is an allusion to Che's famous "Message to the Tricontinental," which contained this charming passage: "Hatred as an element of struggle; unbending hatred for the enemy, which pushes a human being beyond his natural limitations, making him into an effective, violent, selective, and cold-blooded killing machine."

Llosa writes, "Che ordered the execution of a couple dozen people in Santa Clara, in central Cuba, where his column had gone as part of a final assault on the island. Some of them were shot in a hotel...among those executed, known as casquitos, were peasants who had joined the army simply to escape unemployment." Guevara later supervised the construction of a constellation of hellish "labor" camps across Cuba, which were used to imprison dissidents and, not long after his death, homosexuals and AIDS patients.
