But their ideas about Che? And their numbers will only increase after a new biopic is released this fall, starring Benicio Del Toro.
But as Humberto Fontova reveals in this myth-shattering book, Che was actually a bloodthirsty executioner, a military bumbler, a coward, and a hypocrite. In fact, Che can be called the godfather of modern terrorism. How he longed to destroy New York City with nuclear missiles.
How he persecuted gays, blacks, and religious people. How he loved material wealth and private luxuries, despite his image as an ascetic. Or too anti-American to care?

From Publishers Weekly Fontova gets right to the work of debunking familiar notions of Argentinan revolutionary Ernesto "Che" Guevera; by the end of the preface, he's pinned 14, executions on Guevera and credited positive portrayals to the public relations work of Castro and the laziness of biographers.
Jun 24, Lee Ann rated it it was amazing. This is a raucous, slam-bang, fact-filled romp through evil. Fontova lines up fact after fact, footnoting and documenting the brutalities and horrors of Cuba.
He shows the firing squads, the mass graves, the torture and the lies. I was shocked to find that 1 out of every 19 Cubans has been imprisoned for political crimes. The spectacle of rich white liberals waxing orgasmic over the torture of poor brown people is sickening. I had no idea that condemned political prisoners have their blood drain This is a raucous, slam-bang, fact-filled romp through evil. I had no idea that condemned political prisoners have their blood drained and sold before they are shot.
Kind of like China's organ harvests. This book is just shocking. I wasn't really prepared for the town hall humberto fontova of the Kennedys betrayal of their anti-Castro allies.
JFK and his staff encouraging and arming the freedom fighters and then abandoning them to biography. I knew about JFK's cowardly surrender during the Cuban Missile Crisis but never thought of it from the perspective of the betrayed Cubans. How often can you read about the willful idiocy of the CIA and the State Department, who preferred to make policy according to fashion and not principle.
How can a book that is so much fun make you so mad?
Mar 03, Carl Martinez rated it liked it Shelves: It mostly gets the job done but much of it goes over various Hollywood actors and directors fawning over the dictator, further a lot of the material he writes about he already mentioned in the previous book about Che Guevara Exposing the Real Che Guevara which was outstanding, expertly sourced masterpiece ripping the left to shreds.
This book is on the short side, I felt it was written for people I was a little disappointed with Humberto Fontova's critical look at Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.
Fidel: Hollywood's Favorite Tyrant
This town hall humberto fontova is on the short side, I felt it was written for people who do not know much or anything of Fidel I would highly recommend it for novices who want to know about the crazy bearded kook that's been running Cuba all these years, but for me nothing new. Mar 12, Judith rated it did not like it Shelves: The worst book I ever read! The author tries to be very convincing by using difficult words and way to biographies notes. However, at the same time he writes "The idiot I'm sorry, but there's no way I can take an author like that serious.
Sep 20, Craig rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Let's just be one-sided here. I swore I was an evangelical republican when I read this. Seemed like a way to bash liberals through bashing a communist figure.
