Compare and Contrast: Dissident vs. “dissident”


“Both denounced their country. Guess which one can go home?

“Edward Snowden: Forced to seek exile in various countries for denouncing crimes of espionage committed by the US (his country).

“Yoani Sánchez: Travels all over the world ‘denouncing’ Cuba. Comes and goes as she pleases.

” ‘When we have eliminated the Communist threat, the normal order of things will return.’ — Adolf Hitler”

I should also add that this picture is spy vs. spy…or rather, former spy vs. current one. Yoani Sánchez works for the CIA.
