Alice Walker, who won the Pulitzer prize for her novel The Color Purple, is a useful idiot:
The Cuban government distributed a letter on Wednesday in which American author Alice Walker expressed her support to the children of five Cuban intelligence agents imprisoned in the United States.
Walker, who won the Pulitzer Prize for her novel The Color Purple, has in the past joined American writers, artists and intellectuals in demanding the release of the so-called Cuban 5, who were convicted in 2001 of being unregistered foreign agents operating in the United States.
She goes on…
“In my own experience, everything to do with attaining justice has been very hard, very difficult, a very long struggle. Apparently endless, in fact,” the letter said. “That is unfortunately the experience of much of the world. Still, we persist in our hope of justice.”
Indeed, Alice. We who hope for freedom in Cuba and justice for the Castro cabal have experienced a ” very hard, very difficult, a very long struggle.” And “Still, we persist in our hope of justice.”
I wonder if you’re as concerned about justice for the family of Greg Fronius, a Green Beret who was killed as the result of the actions of a spy for Cuba, as detailed in the book True Believer, by Scott Carmichael of the Defense Intelligence Agency.
Visit Fry the Five, the only website (as far as I know, and yes–disclaimer, disclaimer–it belongs to me) dedicated to making sure Castro’s five spies stay in prison.
