Re: Mercedes uses mass murderer in ad! WTF?
Mercedes knows their up-and-coming market. My parents drive a Mercedes, so every time I see one coming up the street, I look to see who's driving. Most of the time, it's a young Asian or sometimes a black. It's also occasionally a teen-ager (driving daddy's car, I assume). There are far more young non-white people driving that brand now than older white people, like my parents.

Just my two cents.

Hitler loved Mercedes. He gave Mercedes a lot of slack to make the cars he wanted. Hitler thought everyone else should drive a VW, but he was a Benz man. As far as the jewish skin thing, I doubt that. Not that he wouldn't, but it just wouldn't be a good material for cat interior.
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

The freedom fighter that I know is quite well off. He flies out to Nebraska from southern Florida every year to hunt geese. He brings traditional Cuban food for everyone he sees while he is there. For a man that has to be well into his seventies, he gets around great. He rents a car and drives around Nebraska and Wyoming. Everybody gets to try his Cuban cooking. He tells everyone about his experience in the revolution. It makes for a great evening of eating, drinking and talking about the history he lived through. He is certainly not a pig, or stupid, and he has a collection of classic cars in a warehouse in Florida. I don't know if his collection includes any Mercedes, but he sure as hell knew what my wife's 450SL was, and what it was worth.

Re: Mercedes uses mass murderer in ad! WTF?
I sent this article to my friend in Florida, and he just wrote me back about it. Here is a short snip from the message he sent me.
Thank you very much for sending this message. It is all over the Cuban-American community in Miami; and whats more, Felix Rodriguez, who captured Che in Bolivia, who also fought with me in the Bay of Pigs invasion against Castro, and is the current President of the Brigade 2506 association ( all members, including me, are Cuban-American veterans of the Bay of Pigs Invasion against Fidel Castro in April 17, 1961) wrote back to Daimler, Mercedes-Benz raising hell.
The rest is personal, but it sounds like the Cuban-American community is really pissed off. As they should be.
Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

Re: Mercedes uses mass murderer in ad! WTF?
wow
EL CHE for you, was above all a DOCTOR, so show some respect for a man that was not only loved in his continent but also in others
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8777555


He was a butcher that shot people in the head because he liked it! And when he was caught, he begged like a little girl and offered all his money if they would release him. He may have had a better chance at a deal if he had not murdered the friends and family of the soldiers that captured him. A real doctor would not torture and kill for fun. Che is one of the worst mass murderers that ever lived. And now he rots in hell.
 Quoting: Epic Beard Guy


Didn't they say the same thing about Saddam, Bin Hiden, Gadaffi? I get tired of reading revisionist BS from the Puppet Masters. He was a threat to them so they got rid of him and created a BS propaganda story to keep him a hero to some while a murderer to others. Classic Divide and Conquer. Everything in our history has been rewritten. Do you think Che or whatever puppet they used has real power? If the name or person does have power, then people have been brainwashed by BS.

Some wear Hitler attire as well. It keeps people divided and it was all invented by the Puppet Masters. They change countries by illusions and propaganda. They created the society of hate instead of the society of Love. Once you see the game it is easy to free the mind.

Peace to you friend
 Quoting: Amy_A


I know a man that was there. His best friend was one of the soldiers that captured Che. These are people that knew Che, and Fidel. The man I know was one of the lucky ones that escaped Cuba in '59. He is still one of the most wanted men in Cuba. Castro will never forget, and never forgive. These guys lost a lot of friends and family. This is not propaganda, it is true history. There are a lot of books available on the subject, some of them are true, but some are written with an agenda. After all that America did to these people, they still love us and are glad to call America home. They are more patriotic Americans than most of the people born here.

It's not a problem for him. He came to America, became an Attorney, and has been the lead attorney representing Cubans in exile for many years. Obviously he would like to go home, but he has adjusted to America very well. He travels around telling people about Cuba and Castro. That makes him happy.

I agree, way to tarnish the image of a good revolutionary by associating him with some scummy car company.

You could not be more wrong. I am a very happy person, but I will not forget history. If you don't learn from history you are doomed to repeat it. That fact is going be proven true in America in the very near future.

During their short conversation, Guevara pointed out to Cortez the poor condition of the schoolhouse, stating that it was "anti-pedagogical" to expect campesino students to be educated there, while "government officials drive Mercedes cars", and declaring "that's what we are fighting against."
