Want to know the details of the latest outrageous act in the Normalization Circus?

Today is your lucky day.

Jay Nordlinger at the National Review has interviewed Kimberley Motley, the American attorney who tried to involve herself in El Sexto’s case in Castrogonia.

The details should shock everyone who claims to care about human rights.

As she says, what is going on in Castrogonia, what has happened to El Sexto, and what was done to her is “legally and morally reprehensible.”

But, of course, as we all know, there are many such people who won’t give a damn about this story, simply because it’s about human rights abuses committed by a leftist regime.

Of course, of course, naturellement, self-anointed activists of this sort might be slightly irritated by the fact that an American woman of colour was treated as if she were a Cuban.

Will they be scandalized?  Will they call for sanctions against the Castro regime?  Will they boycott firms that do business with the Castro regime?  Will they ask American and European universities to sell their stock investments in firms that do business with the Castro regime?

Dream on….


From National Review

Kimberley Motley is an American attorney and human-rights activist. I have known her for several years. For some time now, she has lived and worked in Afghanistan. She especially helps girls and women there. She is a multifaceted woman, Kim Motley. Her résumé includes the Mrs. America competition. Readers of NR know who Danilo Maldonado is. We have written about him several times, and I interviewed him earlier this year. For that piece, go here.

Maldonado is the Cuban dissident and street artist nicknamed “El Sexto” (meaning “The Sixth”). He has been in and out of prison. He is in again, this time for not saying and doing the right things after the death of Fidel Castro. Last week, Kim traveled from Afghanistan to Cuba, in hopes of representing Danilo. She herself was detained by the regime, for hours. They came again at midnight. She is now in the United States, and I talked with her yesterday.

  1. She’s practically perfect from a media perspective, except she’s trying to help the “wrong” side. Otherwise, she’d be a very hot item right now, with all the most “progressive” venues beating down her door for an interview. But, as I’ve said before, even a hip and attractive black civil rights advocate, who would normally be extremely marketable, still has to follow the official playbook to get attention. You don’t see Obama or Mrs. O tweeting about her, now do you?
