A Climate of Love

Driving to work the other day, I saw a bumper sticker on the back of a old red Taurus station wagon that said:
The True Revolutionary is Guided By Feelings of Love.
The quote is attributed to Che Guevara and the bumper sticker contained his iconic image. So loving was Che that personally executed 180 people while attempting to spread the "love" that was the ideology of communism.

Che was an international terrorist and a mass murderer but that hasn't prevented him from being lionized by the left as a romantic and misunderstood hero to the cause of social justice.

Of course, I can't possibly know the exact message of what the owner of the red Taurus was trying to convey to his fellow motorists. Was he or she being ironic? Or does the car's owner actually believe it was "feelings of love" that drove Che, Castro, Lenin, and Mohammed Atta to act as they did.

I don't know. For all I know the sticker was put on there by a vandal and the owner of the car just hasn't scraped it off yet.

What I would not assume or suggest is that the owner of the car was guilty of contributing to the "climate of hate" that caused the shooting spree in Arizona.

As for the "climate of love" created in Cuba and other lands by the revolutionary spirit of Che, Castro and others, I'll take those who hate it over those who defend it, every time.
