Not-the-Onion: Ireland commemorates Che Guevara’s death with postage stamp

[Ed. – And that’s why Irish jokes always depict Paddy as a moron.  (If you’re Irish, you can say that.)]

The Irish government has a bizarre history of honoring marxist murderer Ernesto “Che” Guevara as a son of Ireland. Most recently, the Irish mail service An Post plastered his face on a stamp in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution totalitarian’s death this coming Monday October, 9th, 2017.
