This is a colorful blog template designed for the Textpattern Template Competition currently featuring the cuban politician, Ernesto Guevara but it seems very easily customizable.

Is there going to be an entire series of templates featuring repressive totalitarian thugs?
Alex:
Or possibly a mass-murderer series featuring whimiscal pictures of family executions and mass graves?
I’m really looking forward to a hitler theme. Woohoo!
Ben:
Are you stupid? Che Guevara isn’nt like the fu**** A Hitler … Sorry for my hard vocabulary but your answers aren’t very research … It’s a good template, you had made a good job
I did some research.

Cuba was a nation of 6.5 million in 1959. Within three months in power, Castro and Che had shamed the Nazi prewar incarceration and murder rate. One defector claims that Che signed 500 death warrants, another says over 600. Cuban journalist Luis Ortega, who knew Che as early as 1954, writes in his book “Yo Soy El Che!” that Guevara sent 1,897 men to the firing squad. In his book “Che Guevara: A Biography,” Daniel James writes that Che himself admitted to ordering “several thousand” executions during the first few years of the Castro regime. – Humberto Fontova

Apparently, it would be more accurate to state that Hilter was no Guevara.
Right. He was a jerk of the highest caliber.

As Paul Berman wrote in his essay, The Cult of Che, “The cult of Ernesto Che Guevara is an episode in the moral callousness of our time. Che was a totalitarian. He achieved nothing but disaster. Many of the early leaders of the Cuban Revolution favored a democratic or democratic-socialist direction for the new Cuba. But Che was a mainstay of the hardline pro-Soviet faction, and his faction won. Che presided over the Cuban Revolution’s first firing squads. He founded Cuba’s “labor camp” system—the system that was eventually employed to incarcerate gays, dissidents, and AIDS victims. To get himself killed, and to get a lot of other people killed, was central to Che’s imagination.”
