Love for Fidel cost Miami Marlins manager

Miami Marlins manager, Ozzie Guillen, got a five-game ban for his club after expressing sympathy for Fidel Castro.

“I love Fidel Castro,” said Guelllin in an interview with Time magazine and added the he admires the work the former Cuban leader did during his nearly 50 years in power.

The Miami Marlins reaction to those words was immediate as the club disqualified the manager and organized a news conference so the 48-year-old could apologize.

“I hurt a lot of people’s feelings, a lot of victims,”
 Guillen is cited by MLB.com as saying. “I’ve apologized twice and I meant it. I say a lot of things and I never apologize but now I have to because I did the wrong thing. I’m behind the Cuban community. How am I going to make it better? I’m going to show the community that I support them 100 percent.”

There’s a large Cuban community in Miami, with the majority of its members being refugees from Cuba, who fled in search of better life in the US.

“The Marlins acknowledge the seriousness of the comments attributed to Guillen,”
 the team said in a statement. “The pain and suffering caused by Fidel Castro cannot be minimized, especially, in a community filled with victims of the dictatorship.”

The Major League Baseball fully supported the ban on Guillen, with Commissioner Bud Selig, stressing “baseball is a social institution with important social responsibilities”.

Venezuelan American, Ozzie Guillen, became the Marlins’ manager in September last year and is now at risk of losing his job after only six months in charge.

  1. May Day is a National Communist Holiday and millions showed up in Havana to listen to Fidel Castro mirroring the illegal alien protest marchers in the United States of America, as Castro condemned the American Government. While the United States Congress and the United States Senate cave into the demands of the protesters and boycott participants. Fidel Castro the Communist Dictator of Cuba who promised government reform for the peasants, instead took over the country for himself after over throwing the government. He says he sees the start of the same movement in the United States and is so very proud of all the protestors in the United States of America on this historic May Day Communist Holiday.;

  2. It is frightening how those in power in the United States will force a person to believe what they want them to believe, and say what they want them to say. Instead of letting Guillen critically think for himself and speak his own thoughts on the matter they are demanding that he mindlessly bow to the demands of the Catholic Cubans and say “Castro is a bad guy.” His refusal to do so means he will not have a job. It is just another form of the Inquisition…..first stages of the American Inquisition are clearly showing themselves. It is just a matter of time before blood will be running in the streets. It has happened to every single country that has been overtaken by treasonous Catholic puppets that answer only to the Vatican.
