Ozzie Guillen, manager of the Florida Marlin's and from Venezuela, who calls it like he thinks it is, was suspended for 5-days by the idiots that own the team. How do I know they are idiots? Because the last time I looked, this was still America, not fucking Cuba and we can say anything we please, within bounds of physically harming others. I can yell out "I Love Trump" (I never would, believe me) and not get slugged if I want to. What in the hell happened to Free Speech? I Like Obama. You like Mitt. He Likes Castro, big fuckin' deal. This is wrong in so many ways!
Don't get me wrong. I have no love lost for Castro, but really, the man has one foot in the grave and the other foot on a banana peel. The powers that be, who have all the fucking money can't wait for him to die and watch the people over-throw Raoul so they can buy the beach-front land and build monstrous gambling casino's and hotel's and make billions off of it. Saying you like Castro is like yelling "I hate Ben Franklin" in a bank. This is from the owners of the Marlins.
“There is nothing to respect about Fidel Castro. He is a brutal dictator who has caused unthinkable pain for more than 50 years. We live in a community [Miami, FL] filled with victims of this dictatorship, and the people in Cuba continue to suffer today.
This is from Ozzie:
“I will apologize if I hurt somebody’s feelings, or I hurt somebody’s thought. I want them to know I’m against everything 100%. I repeat it again, the way this man [has been] treating people for the past 60 years.”
But, they can't let it go at that. The money-men have been waiting for years for Castro to die and I would bet money they have plans already drawn of who gets what and who bribes who. These pricks really kill me, they aren't rich enough ripping off the Indians by turning their reservation into gambling Mecca's and allowing a small part of the Indians that were left after we committed genocide against them, to live high on the hog. But there are many reservations who can't even get the money the government owes them and have an alcoholic problem that is epidemic. Where are their mansions?
So, Ozzie Guillen says, drunk in a bar mind you, "I love Castro" and some asshole takes offense and the owners fine him and suspend him for five days. Florida is a mecca for Cubans who came here and got rich and the politicians love to pander to them. Yeah, give them what they want, if they can pull in the votes. No matter that many people love Castro in Miami. Many don't. But you don't go fining people for their fucking beliefs. Who knows his back-story, plus he apolozied. I say Fuck-em' and boycott the games and then see how they like freedom of expression. Assholes~
