Enough already with this ignorant fad. Seriously, go up to any of the hipster kids wearing of these shirts and ask them who is was. Some will say he's a pro-skater, some will kind of stare at you blankly, and the ones who do "know" will say something like "he was a revolutionary"

Right, but what was he "revolting" against? They don’t know.

Ernesto Guevara was Marxist revolutionary.

There is a coffee shop in Hood River whose shirts bear his image along with the tagline: "Coffee worth starting a revolution over"

Yes, I'm sure that a man who lived and died fighting for communism, would love that his likeness is being used to hock espresso, a symbol of imperialism and our bourgeois society.

And not to mention that red shirts we see everywhere, COST MONEY. The people making them... MAKE MONEY. It is a capitalistic venture, and therefore is the antithesis of everything your "revolutionary hero" stood for.

Morons.

It's ****ing annoying to all us commmunists. One could say although it's really annoying the capitalists are own-goaling in the long term as some communists learn about him after seeing the shirt. Not very many but enough

It's annoying to everyone. They are a fad and are exploiting a great man. He stood against capitalism and commercialism, and now he is a T-shirt? Disgusting. You may as well put Reagan's face on Welfare checks.

Che, my dear friend.

I'd think that Communists, like yourselves would have more to do then to complain about retards wearing Che shirts. I agree, they might not understand a thing about Che.. but those shirts are pretty cool! I'm not going to buy one, Red isn't my color..

Dude, you tell me that sporting a Che shirt wouldn't make me pimp and I'd call you crazy /end sarcasm.


Yeah that's the beauty of Google Ads.

this is an odd this to admit... but I visit this mental health forum... frequenting the section that talks **** about phsychiatry...

And the google ads that show up in the self esteem section are for hair plugs, anti-cellulite cream and anti-wrinkle cream...

WTF?
