In fact 4 years ago this Cuban dissident was greeted personally and honored by the U.S. President in a meeting that included 6 ambassadors from former Soviet Bloc nations.
In fact this Cuban dissident was rounded up during the internationally-infamous Black Spring wave of Castroite terror and suffered two years in Castro’s torture chambers.
On this side of Alice’s Looking Glass the stop by this Cuban dissident in the White House would seem to have merited much more media fanfare than currently……
But whoops! Turns out this Cuban dissident–though he calls for help in getting more modern communications equipment in the hands of Cubans–doesn’t call for a “dialogue” with Cuba’s Stalinist regime.
And whoops!…he doesn’t call for the U.S. to lift the Cuba “embargo.”
In fact: this Cuban dissident specifically cautions AGAINST such measures, calling them “counterproductive.” This former political prisoner also calls for Cubans–rather than to keep mum in the face of obvious errors by compatriot spokespersons–to point them out, Reminding us that it’s not so much our infamous factionalism that leads to our problems but rather a herd instinct in refusing to call out errors and ignorance–all for fear of being branded unfashionable or “politically-incorrect.”
Any more questions why you didn’t hear about this White House visit or probably ever heard of this Cuban dissident in the MSM?….
