Some mass-murderers are OK?

We read:

"A prosecutor in Bolzano, northern Italy has seized wine bottle labels bearing a portrait of Hitler and other Nazis from a winery near the Austrian border.

The 20 labels from the "Der Fuehrer" line show Hitler raising the Nazi salute and his generals, including Hermann Goering, the Reich's economic minister, Heinrich Himmler, the head of the Gestapo, and Rudolf Hess, Hitler's deputy. The black and white labels are imprinted with the mottoes "Ein volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer'' (one people, one empire, one Fuehrer) and "Sieg heil", a slogan proclaimed by Hitler as a greeting or in front of the masses.

The incriminating labels constitute a glorification of the perpetrators of crimes against humanity, according to state prosecutor Cuno Tarfusser.

The Lunardelli company said it had sold around 20,000 bottles featuring the Hitler labels per year. It also sold wine with images of Mussolini on the label, which were not seized by police. The bottles make up part of a product line started in 1995 called the "historic collection", selling wine with labels with the faces of Winston Churchill, Antonio Gramsci, an Italian Marxist philosopher, Adolph Hitler, Karl Marx, Napoleon Bonaparte, Benito Mussolini, and Che Guevara."


Che Guevara was a psychopathic killer and the hate-filled Karl Marx has probably been responsible for more killings than anyone else in history. So if Hitler cannot be featured, why are Guevara and Marx OK?
