I think they are plenty entitled to feel really, really angry about Castro. But let's be clear, for many--though far from all-- of the Miami Cubans ( at least of the older generation) the issue is that the horrible dictator they supported who did bad things to other people got outsted by a horrible dictator they oppossed who did bad things to them.
The issue for many wasn't dictatorship or human rights abuses in Cuba-- it was abuses that were perpetrated against them rather than for them.
That said, I'm kind of running my mouth. How do Miami Cubans feel about Batista now? Anyone?
Edit: I should be clear: I know that the Cubans emigration to Miami started with Batista supporters and then grew to include many, many others. So its wrong for me to pretend its a homogenous group.
I hope that if Ozzie had talked about how much he admired Batista, there would be comperable hue and cry.
