Miami Marlins president David Samson listens as manager Ozzie Guillen speaks at a news conference at Marlins Park in Miami Tuesday.
So Ozzie says a few things in a stream of consciousnesses interview with Time which include:
“I love Fidel Castro.” "I respect Fidel Castro." "You know why? A lot of people have wanted to kill Fidel Castro for the last 60 years, but that mother—— is still here.”The Cuban-American population in South Florida didn't like that kind of talk and called for Ozzie's head on platter.
Marlins jewish 'art dealer' owner Jeffrey Loria and his sidekick Sampson took mercy on 'lost in translation' Ozzie and only gave him a 5 day without pay suspension.
It appears that Loria is not the most transparent businessman, some even call him names like 'treacherous, no good, low down, lying dog' who loves to take taxpayer subsidies to fatten his profits through the usual tribal techniques of deception and bribery. But he did let his goy employee keep his job, probably after a lot of consternation about what was best for his bottom line and the overall public perception of his decision.
Ozzie learned his lesson. Free speech is not free in certain circumstances.
It's also a reinforcing lesson to all, especially to the kids who look up to these 'celebrities,' to watch what you say. Can't have loose lips in the public arena. As Barney Fife always says "Nip It In The Bud." Free speech just ain't what it used to be and that's part of the big plan. These kind of 'Ozzie' incidents fit in with the plan very well and the media is more than glad to make it an 'issue.'
Oh well, freedom of speech was a wonderous story while it lasted .....
