The Communists Look For Soul Mates In Academia

The FBI says so:
Cuba’s communist-led intelligence services are aggressively recruiting leftist American academics and university professors as spies and influence agents, according to an internal FBI report published this week.
And . . . 
One recruitment method used by the Cubans is to appeal to American leftists’ ideology. “For instance, someone who is allied with communist or leftist ideology may assist the [Cuban intelligence service] because of his/her personal beliefs,” the FBI report, dated Sept. 2, said.
And . . .
Cuban intelligence seeks to plant disinformation or propaganda through its influence agents, and can task recruits to actively disseminate the data. 
 That part should be easy. I think much of academia already has the propaganda angle covered. 

And . . .
"College campuses are seen as fertile ground . . ."
Gee, I wonder why. Must be all that there anecdotal evidence floating around.  Not to worry, the flat-earthers will not deviate from denial. It's easy to deny when you live in a bubble. More here.

I'm surprised foreign intelligence services are putting so much time and effort into cultivating potential turncoats on our nation's college campuses.

Given the pervasive presence of Marxist claptrap dominating the academy, all recruiters would have to do is put a Help Wanted ad in the campus newspaper.

RL - agreed.

"Cuban intelligence seeks to plant disinformation or propaganda through its influence agents,"

Seems to me that's already been done for them. Why bother?
