The Marlins have suspended manager Ozzie Guillen for five days, for  telling  Time Magazine  "I love Fidel Castro."

Cubans in Miami protested and called for a boycott of Marlins games. 

One twitter commenter,   said, " Just to be clear. Amongst his many sins, Castro quashed the free speech movement and now Cubans in Miami are doing the same here?"

And you wonder why athletes are apolitical. Talk about fascism at work. 
Twitter has people suggesting that freedom of speech doesn't mean there are consequences. 
What does a man having a political opinion have to do with the work he does which has nothing to do with that opinion? I hate to say it but this makes arguments for anonymity on the net very viable.

The Marlins management are cowards. They take a man with an opinion and principle and beat him up. 

Of course they have the right to do that.  That doesn't make it right.

Guillen at press conference, post-suspension, says, in Spanish, " Sorry I hurt a city and country. I did so without intent. I feel like I betrayed my Latin community."

 

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
