A day the world became a better place

Powerline notes that it's the anniversary of a glorious event:

Today is the 40th anniversary of an excellent day in the history of freedom -- the day the bloodthirsty Communist thug Che Guevara was killed in Bolivia.

I've always been at the same time intrigued and repulsed by the fascination a segment of the left has with this brutal mass murderer. Does it really just come down to the fact that he was a photogenic guy? After all, I've never seen anybody wearing a t-shirt with Adolf Eichmann's mug.

But there's really little more to it, right? There are still holdouts who, despite mountains of undeniable evidence to the contrary, still believe that Communism was and is something other than a death cult like Nazism. Or that socialism was and is something other than a discredited Utopian fantasy.

Thus we continue to see the blend of ignorance and cognitive dissonance that views the pure evil of thugs like Fidel and Che as somehow noble, even "cool" instead of acknowledging that they were just Hitler and Eichmann clones in another place and time.
