The Left and Gorki




So now that Mr. Moore has decided to immerse himself into Cuban politics debate, when will he and the rest of the activist American left begin calling for the release of Gorki Aguila? The short answer is "never." Our elitist protesters are nothing more than self-serving narcissists who can only dream of having the courage of a Gorki Aguila.

Speaking out against America is cheap and easy but is far from courageous. America doesn’t have a secret police or nasty little military to anchor a leader’s repression regardless of the disturbed claims from an unhinged left to the contrary. Courage means facing consequences; real consequences not simply a dip in the popularity scale.

I am glad that Gorki's courage is getting more and more attention everyday. We cannot afford to forget the rest of the band, because they are in the same boat with him, facing the same consecuences for they valiant opposition to the regime.
We need to get him on the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and other outlets of the American mainstream media industry. At least we have broken the ice. Now let's put the water to boil!

Gorki for President!

CB: You've got point on this and have done a great job.

I couldn't agree more. Gorki will be one of my focuses.

We are on this together with them Gusano....
And as you said, he's one of the focuses, he represent the rebellious Cuban youth that's gonna change that country!

I've never met Gorki but already he feels like an old friend of mine. I hate when anyone bothers my friends...
