Skip to comments.In Need Of A Bailout: The ‘Che Cafe,’ A Co-Op Run By Commie-Loving Students
Posted on 05/22/2014 7:54:38 AM PDT by rktman
Proving that communism has worked no better for students at a University of California-San Diego cooperative living space than it did for the billions of citizens of the Soviet Union and the Peoples Republic of China, the aptly-named Che Cafe is quickly running out of cash.
In the cleverly titled article, In the Red, The UCSD Guardian noted that the Che Cafea student-run co-op named after mass-murdering dictator Che Guevara and governed by the communist philosophyhas become a money pit consistently plagued with safety issues.
Give these students a hand... Che can’t.
Damn commies... redundant I know
Does the “Che Gormet” make their food, maybe he needed a pay raise as minimum raise wasn’t good enough for him..
Che was a dictator?
Glad to see he was right about capitalism not working for coffee shops.
Sadly, the little socialists are most likely incapable of learning anything from their experience. As has been said so often, liberalism (and socialism/Marxism/communism) is a mental disease.
Maybe they should open a “Heinrich Himmler Deli” right next to it.
Pretty well describes our federal government.
this is probably a construct of radical professors; most students probably don’t even know where it is.
If Che was alive today can you imagine what he would be doing right now? - Scratching on the inside of the lid of his coffin!

You know........... for nothing..
Like they do with the ones better than equal.. under the law.. the elite.. the Commissars..
Like all communist givernments do...
I never understood how Che became some cultish figure among liberals and liberal students. Obviously they don’t know their history, and/or, choose to ignore that history, and/or, sympathize with communism and totalitarian systems.
Yes I know, but he was never a dictator. A thug, a scumbag, a hero to the left. My friends parents had to flee Cuba because of him. Great book called Hollywood’s favorite dictator.All about the wonderful castro and the way they treat blacks in Cuba and how they cured AIDS too.
A lot of this Che worship with thr shirts is passive-agressive behavior.They aren’t tough enough to confront decent people directly,so they try to annoy us while having deniability if confronted.Bunch of pussies really.
Judging by the students I run into at school, they don’t even know of an alternative. Capitalism is only presented as the system of evil Christian, Homophobes, climate change deniers, Koch Brothers. They’ve been denied a framework of reason that could help them critique what’s they’ve been spoon fed. Their parents abdicated their authority to the public school, so now have no credibility to sway them.
So, no, they won’t learn from this experience because you need reason to learn.
This is how they are unable to acknowledge what is right in front of their own eyes.
I know, we’re slipping.
He’d be in court today suing for his share of the lucrative t-shirt market...
You beat me to it, I’m glad I looked. Belongs on every Che thread.
Boosting their resume’s for an Obama administration job!
money pit consistently plagued with safety issues.
Sounnds like the leftard Seattle tunnel project.
“Give these students a hand... Che cant.”
Che gave up his hands ...
“..governed by the communist philosophyhas become a money pit consistently plagued with safety issues.”
Yep, just like all countries that embrace this crap!
Google Images has a whole bunch of pics of the Che Cafe. It’s an old barn immersed in graffiti, a hangout for young people immersed in nihilism.
Funny how we have elevated the value of meaninglessness.
There were filthy hippies that tried that here when hope and change was in the air. They got a restaurant space in the most expensive part of town and opened the doors. The gimmik was that ypu can get what you want and pay what you think is fair or could volunteer to work there for the food. No set prices. The guilt ridden wealthy gave huge amounts to show how much better this system is but the place soon became over run by che tshirt wearing trash who paid nothing. It didn’t last long and quietly vanished one night a bankrupt failure.
Well not willingly...
“Robert Irvine, please pick up the white courtesy phone, paging Mr. Robert Irvine...”
That episode would be pure television GOLD!
Co-Ops never work as their mission is against human nature and opposes Capitalism.
exactly, they were never given the tools and knowledge and ability to learn by the government schools.
