South Florida’s Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen blasted the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization today for its decision to include “The Life and Works of Ernesto Che Guevara” in the organization’s “Memory of the World Register.” Items included in the register are endorsed by UNESCO’s director-general and are selected based on “world significance and outstanding universal value.”

In a statement, Ros-Lehtinen called for the United States to pull its funding of UNESCO.

UNESCO continued its longstanding tradition of making a mockery of its own institution when it opted to venerate and memorialize the life of a blood thirsty, murderous sadist, Che Guevara, by including his works as an entry in its ‘Memory of the World Register.’ This decision is more than an insult to the families of those Cubans who were lined up and summarily executed by Che and his merciless cronies but it also serves as a direct contradiction to the UNESCO ideals of encouraging peace and universal respect for human rights.


Guevara’s widow and children attended a ceremony in Havana on Friday to celebrate his inclusion in UNESCO’s register.
