The man from Rosario was assassinated in Bolivia on October 9, 1967.
Ernesto “Che” Guevara was assassinated in Bolivia on October 9, 1967. A new anniversary of his death made him trend in social networks, where thousands of people remembered him with praise and many others questioned him, among them the president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro.
It is not the first time that the Brazilian president has questioned one of the leaders of the Cuban revolution, but this time he redoubled the bet and announced that his legacy only inspires “Marginals, junkies and left-wing scum“.
“October 9. The communist Che Guevara died in Bolivia, whose legacy only inspires criminals, drug addicts and the scum of the left. With its end, communism was losing strength in Latin America, but would return through the Forum of San Pablo, that we continue to fight, “Bolsonaro wrote.
The always controversial Brazilian president thus pointed to the group of left-wing political parties in which Argentina participated during the governments of Nestor and Cristina Kirchner.
The other side of Bolsonaro’s insults were the memories of former Bolivian president Evo Morales and Venezuelan Nicolás Maduro. Morales stressed, also on Twitter, that Che’s “dreams” live in all who fight with passion and courage, without losing tenderness, for greater social justice in the world. “
For his part, Maduro said that Guevara is still alongside those who, according to him, firmly resist “the arrogance of those who seek to silence our truth.” Maduro and his Government questioned in the last hours the decision of Alberto Fernández and the Argentine Executive to support Michelle Bachelet’s report for the UN and condemn the human rights violations in that country.
In the last hours, Bolsonaro also criticized the Argentine president, whom he questioned for publicly supporting the voluntary interruption of pregnancy.
The Brazilian head of state said that “leftism” returned to Argentina and that after reading in the press that Fernández plans to legalize abortion, that is “what you deserve” the country.
“Cristina Kirchner’s ‘leftist’ returned. Look what is happening in Argentina. I saw in the press that the president is going to legalize abortion in Argentina. Well, Argentines, I’m sorry, but that’s what you deserve,” he said. Bolsonaro during his usual appearance on Thursdays through his social networks.
