Capitol Report: De Blasio draws flak from Democrats and Republicans alike for quoting Che Guevara in Miami

Long-shot presidential candidate Bill de Blasio attracted criticism Thursday from fellow Democrats as well as Republicans after quoting Che Guevara at a rally in Miami.

While Guevara has become a pop culture icon and has been treated as a martyr by some on the left, Miami’s Cuban exile community views the former lieutenant to Fidel Castro as a murderous sociopath, said a Miami Herald report.

Some Florida Democrats who spoke before de Blasio at the rally at the city’s airport were horrified that the New York City mayor quoted a Guevara mantra during his speech, the report added. “Please apologize,” tweeted Democratic State Sen.
