Barack Obama had to chime in to re-emphasize for the umpteenth time that racism exists in America. Thanks for taking time away from addressing America’s out of control debt, a deficit that would choke an elephant, lack of jobs, and potential World War III to remind us that America has a worthless president…but at least he’s BLACK!
Because an NBA owner’s racist comments are so important, Obama made sure that National Basketball Association Commissioner Adam Silver “will address this” on behalf of the league’s many fans.
Racism is an important topic; in America…the most racist country on the planet, right?
With 37.5 million immigrants currently living in the United States, it remains the top migrant destination in the world. – International Organization for Migration.
We are so racist in America, we are formed from the mosaic of every nationality and culture in the world, and are the most heterogeneous society in the world.
Nevertheless, the Left loves it when they get to wield their tool of racism so publicly. Racism promotes the Leftist ideology that government needs to eradicate the racism that the Left continually creates.
Donald Sterling is a very typical rich Leftist.
Rich Leftists are capitalist, but they don’t want people to think of them that way. Like all Leftist, Sterling sees himself as a philanthropist, helping poor black men, as he describes in an excerpt from his conversation with Vanessa Stiviano:
[Girlfriend]: Do you know that you have a whole team that’s black, that plays for you?
[Sterling]: You just, do I know? I support them and give them food, and clothes, and cars, and houses. Who gives it to them? Does someone else give it to them? Do I know that I have-Who makes the game? Do I make the game, or do they make the game? Is there 30 owners, that created the league?
The opportunity Sterling has created for these young black men is charity. What would these black men be doing without him?
But the bigger issue is not that Sterling is a known racist, but what the label of racist now allows the “powers that be” to do to him.
While the Fed (and other Leftists) free robbers, murderers, and rapists and pedophiles from prisons, the Fed condemns racists. There is talk of removing Sterling’s franchise, the equivalent of capitalism jail.
Sure racism is vile, but last time I checked thieves, murderers, rapists, pedophiles all rank far below racists. We have a Congress full of thieves, philanderers, larcenists, extortionists, murderers, rapists and pedophiles. And to top it off, most of Congress are racists.
Leftist politicians are in the very splendid position of making an example of one of their own. They have an elitist capitalist to throw to the wolves, a little red meat for the base. By sacrificing Sterling, these men appear to be none of what he is, when in fact many are far worse.
But the bigger benefit of this story for Leftist politicians is to teach the lesson that the moniker of “racist” is powerful. Once a person is officially labeled a racist, the power of the government can be exercised to TAKE THEIR STUFF, even if their stuff is an NBA franchise.
Donald Sterling is the Leona Helmsley of racism. – K. Jackson
Everybody knew Sterling’s views on race issues. He was sued in 2006 and 2009 for race related issues. Yet, Doc Rivers and a host of black people gladly accept that racist’s paycheck.
How many American really know the views of the people for whom they work?
Black Liberals hate white people, and those who have jobs gladly accept their racists’ paychecks. Sellouts. These black nationalist, ethno-centric sellouts wouldn’t dare leave the safety and security of their plantation jobs, working for these so-called racists.
The Clipper players are no different. They staged a “silent protest,” when if they were true to their convictions, they would have walked off the job. There are other teams who can pick them up. However, like most Leftist blacks, the Clippers black players accepted their owner’s attitude AND his paycheck.
I want to repeat what this is really all about: if the government or popular opinion can dictate what Sterling can or cannot own, that’s a slippery slope.
