I would like to point ot that this Leftist was allowed to say whatever he liked. The governemt did not silence him or attempt to stifle his idiodic message. The Cuban's living in Florida also had the right to voice their opposition to this Communist sympathizer and the Marlins were also free to to side with those who strongly disagree his sentiments. Personally I don't think that he should be fired for his statements but that is just me. Freedom of speech does not mean that you can say any rediculous thing you want with no repercusions. It simply means the governmet cannot censour it... unless someone is calling for insurection... or threatening bodily harm to someone... or revealing state secrets...or....

He said that he repected Fidel Castro. A Communist who overthrew the government through violent means; who brutally repressed anyone who might appose or threaten his power; who brought his country to ruin; who has been the enemy of this country since he seized power; who brefreinded our archenemy the Soviet Union and became a satellite for them; who agreed to threaten th US with nukes (60 mile from Florida); who has sought to destroy us in any way possible and repress his own people... other than that he is a great guy and should be admired! If you wonder why the exiled Cuban community in the US appose him so vehementaly, look at those who risked their lives by braving the open ocean on little vessels that were not sea worthy to get away from this Communist dictator.

No one has said that this Manager committed a crime and authorities have not been involved. What they have sad is that he said something which showed not only a lack of understanding of who Fidel is and has been, but aso a deep disrespect for those Cubans living in his community.

It would be similar to someone going to Israel and saying that they repected Hitler... or perhaps you don't understand what could be wrong with that either!

No this is nothing compared to hitler....

this is a man who is raising awareness that the american govt has threatened and attempted to assassinate a foreign leader.......for political gain.........right around the time that the American Govt has released a series of laws that now allow them to detain and even assassinate american citizens, with no public recognition of the domestic "threats". He is obviously subtly hinting at this same reality going on today here in the US, saying that he is now more aware of these kinds of policies......see the american threat squad out to take him from his seat, and put a "Good Ol' American" in his place....they want that beisbol bad don't they....!!!!

there is no claim of support of any of Castro's policies.....he was merely commenting on the fact that he can respect his Anti-American Political Beliefs, because of the years of threats being made, and the attempts on his life...........further destroying any peaceful relations.

Wow...I didn't know we had so many retarded users of this website, they keep coming out of the cracks they've been hiding in.......they want the insider information taht shows their govt has lied to them for years....then they turn their backs on the forum and the crew that runs it like a boss!!!

Keep on beating the truth into us and see what happens.

Most of you are a bunch of uninformed dumb asses. Florida is a right to work state. Meaning an employer can fire anyone they want with no cause, if they so choose.

If you work in South Florida for their baseball team and praise Castro, knowing that South Florida is the Cuban capitol of the US. Then it shouldn't be a shock if you got canned. He's lucky he only got suspended. I'm sure the team is waiting to see what the backlash is like before they make their decision.

@ rydher

if floridas a right to work state thats well and good man but hes being punished for expressing a thought , are we not all the same under god? do we have the right as intelligent beings to have the freedom to think for ourselves , to express our views ? pateriot talks of communism yet would suppress this mans views ? what he said might have been misguided but hes entitled to speak his mind .

It's already been explained to you that he didn't break any law and he isn't being punished by the government. He works for a private enterprise and you need to take who you work for into consideration before you speak.
