Cuban Americans in Miami not the only ones upset with Guillen
By Alberto de la Cruz, on April 16, 2012, at 3:09 pm
If you think that only the Cuban Americans in Miami are upset with Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen's asinine statements, think again. The Cuban Americans in New Jersey are none too happy about it either.

Via NorthJersey.com :

N.J. Cubans debate Marlins baseball manager Guillen's remarks
They live more than 1,000 miles from South Florida, but North Jersey Cubans have formed strong opinions over Miami Marlins baseball manager Ozzie Guillen and his published statements expressing admiration for Fidel Castro.

The topic has been part of conversations on social networking sites, on the street and in Cuban restaurants, where some have called Guillen "insensitive" and "ignorant," while others have said that the Venezuelan native has a right to express his opinion.

Most agree, though, that the statements were upsetting to the Cuban people on the island and in America still affected by Castro and his communist regime. Some also noted that the controversy comes as the community will mark the 51st anniversary of the failed Bay of Pigs invasion this week.

"He has hurt a community which has been in pain for 50 years," said Cesar Rodriguez of North Bergen as he sat at the township library Friday afternoon. "He should have just kept quiet."

The backlash centers on statements Guillen made during an interview for a Time magazine article, in which he said he loves Castro and respects him for staying in power for so long. The article led to an outcry in Miami by Cuban-Americans, many of whom live in Little Havana, where the Marlins' new stadium was built. They rallied against him and have demanded that Guillen resign or be fired. He's been suspended for five games, which ends after today's game.

Guillen, who was named manager of the Marlins in September, has apologized to Miami and its large Cuban population. He said repeatedly that he does not admire Castro.

"There are so many Cubans in Miami, how could he say that in that environment, something that would hurt us so much?" said Julio Rodriguez, as he was leaving Mundo Latino Restaurant in North Bergen on Friday. "We probably wouldn't have given it any importance if it was somewhere else."

Some Cubans who live in Bergen and Hudson counties said they felt Guillen was not sincere when he apologized; they say they support a boycott by Cuban-Americans of Marlin baseball games as long as he is manager.

"I feel very offended and if he feels that way he should go play ball in Cuba," said Emilio Del Valle, founder and CEO of the Cuban Parade of New Jersey. "I want him to be boycotted and be reminded constantly that we don't agree with what he said and what his feelings toward a dictator are."

An account has been openend to send WJDC back to Cuba so he can fight like the man he says he is. If many of us do this we can send millions of Cubans back there to fight for their country. Go to Nations Bank and ask for the Patria o muerte account and you can donate there. It is 400 per person for a one way ticket. Let's give a hand to our Cuban brothers to help them liberate their country.

“Envy is the religion of the mediocre. It comforts them, it soothes their worries, and finally it rots their souls, allowing them to justify their meanness and their greed until they believe these to be virtues. Such people are convinced that the doors of heaven will be opened only to poor wretches like themselves who go through life without leaving any trace but their threadbare attempts to belittle others and to exclude - and destroy if possible - those who, by the simple fact of their existence, show up their own poorness of spirit, mind, and guts. Blessed be the one at whom the fools bark, because his soul will never belong to them.”
