Mary O’Grady writes about Hamell Santiago Más Hernández, the Communists’ latest casualty:
Cuba Kills Another Dissident. After Obama’s detente: More tourists on the island and more repression
Forty-five-year-old Más Hernández was a member of the Patriotic Union of Cuba, a group working for a peaceful transition to democracy. He was healthy when he was arrested in June and sentenced to four years in prison for “disrespect for authority”—a k a failure to bow to the masters of the slave plantation. His real crime was advocating for a free Cuba while black. There are few more lethal combinations.
The black Cuban is supposed to show gratitude to the revolution to sustain the myth that he has been elevated by communism. The grim reality is the opposite, but heaven help those who dare to say so.
Más Hernández developed a fatal kidney infection while confined to a dungeon, dying of a “heart attack.”
Laura Pollán died of a “heart attack” too, as you may recall.
