Target department stores sold Che merchandise

But fortunately, they're taking it off the shelves now (Hat tip: Michelle Malkin):
Target Corp said on Friday it had pulled a CD carrying case bearing Ernesto "Che" Guevara's image after an outcry by critics who label the Marxist revolutionary a murderer and totalitarian symbol.

Target had touted a music disc carrying case for Che admirers emblazoned with the Argentine-born guerrilla's iconic 1960 portrait by Alberto Diaz, or "Korda." A set of small earphones was superimposed on the image, suggesting he was tuned in to an iPod or other music player.

"It is never our intent to offend any of our guests through the merchandise we carry," Target said in a statement. "We have made the decision to remove this item from our shelves and we sincerely apologize for any discomfort this situation may have caused our guests."
What I don't understand is how they couldn't have avoided this whole debacle in the first place. Is it not obvious, if anything, that Che was a Communist cretin? Isn't that enough to tell that selling merchandise with his image is in bad form?

Investor's Business Daily broke the news recently in one of their editorials. They should also focus on Wal-Mart, which has been selling neo-nazi t-shirts in some of their stores, and these are much more offensive.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
