Land Of The Free

The so-called Cuban exile community, or the Miami Mafia as they are called by people who know who they are, who are trying to get Ozzie Guillen fired as manager of a baseball team because he told a reporter he admires Fidel Castro, are the remnants and descendants of the sugar plantation owners, whoremongers and casino owners who, before Fidel threw them out of Cuba following the Revolution of 1953-59, had turned it into a little cesspool of vice and corruption where, under protection of a military dictatorship, they brutally exploited their fellow Cubans so that Cuba could be an offshore playground for rich Americans. These disgusting criminals, who have spent the intervening years obsessed with their lost illicit enterprises and plotting against the Revolution, fled to Miami like drowning rats, and were later joined by a few boatloads of more common criminals who Castro let out of prison over the years and allowed to cruise over to Florida. Recall the so called Mariel boat lift, etc.
But that's your Cuban exile community, who exert so much control over Florida politics and US policy when it comes to Cuba. These criminals, who are conservative Republicans, like that whole rat bag of conservatism, think about the constitution only when they can use it to prevent others from doing things they don't like. It's just like Republican Christians and the Bible. It's for you to follow, not me.
Thanks to their leaving Cuba, Cubans enjoy things like excellent, free universal health care and free college, things Americans can only dream about. Like conservatives in general, they want those things for themselves, and to hell with everyone else. They want to be able to say what they think about Fidel Castro, and to hell with everyone else.
Forget about the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, which they rise and sing before baseball games. Forget about freedom of speech, forget about the Constitution, forget about the Bill of Rights, the 1st Amendment. Where they are concerned, forget about the rule of law. Why should they bother with adherence to the law? They never did while they were in Cuba.
