    @Redteam: That’s cus you’re a knowitall RT. Do you think NBA will strip Sterling of ownership today?
    BTW conserv’s shows possession which they do not have. I don’t visit Lib. sites. Everybody patting each other on the back, like you and 05. BORING
    Can’t stand MSNBC.
    I like the way O’Reilly has called out both racists– Bundy and Sterling.

    The NBA has something similar. The owners have a right to do this—-for the good of the game.

    Do you think Sterling is getting a pass?

    Well it’s pretty hard to give him a pass now. But he has certainly been given a pass previously. The NAACP gave him a lifetime achievement award in 2009, knowing his background. I don’t follow the NBA and this is the first time I’ve heard of Donald Sterling. But from what I’ve read, I think he was basically being honored so he would keep sending money.

    I guess all Sterling has to do now is set the price. Probably around a billion, I’d guess. He bought team in ’81 for 12 million.

    Kinda shoots down freedom of speech, doesn’t it? Wonder if whoever recorded it had his permission to record it? So now every owner and every player has to be sure not to make any homophobic or racial comment even in the privacy of their home. I suspect there will be very selective enforcement of these kind of situations.

    @Redteam: Selective? You mean they’ll only go after racist Dems. like Sterling?
    He’ll get 2 Billion for a team he almost destroyed in the 80’s and 90’s. Like I said, he can thank Griffin and Paul.
    Paid 12 mill.in 81–ain’t capitalism great.
    Aqua This guy and his team were the laughing stock of the NBA until the signings I mentioned–complete turn around in 3 years.Value probably tripled.

    @Rich Wheeler: Rich, you put a quote after my name. That is not a quote from me? Is it something you’ve said in the past? I’ve made no statement of support of this person. My only statement is what is the limits, how slippery does the slope get? Someone needs to address Abdul Jabbar’s comments, they’re going to happen.

    That was a major slip up by the Dims. They thought that since he is registered as a Republican that he was supporting Republicans. Turns out all his political donations are to Dims. I’m quite sure the ‘candidate’ will be more thoroughly vetted prior to attempting to make the Repubs look bad in the future.

    and that he has subsequently built into a 2 billion dollar team. Rich in addition to curtailing his free speech rights, do you also want to do away with his free enterprise rights. Is there any part of this Republic that you still respect or do you just want to blindly follow Obama’s path to socialism?

    That same brain allows one to know he is a major contributor to Democrats. As Kraken points out, how many Repubs. are feted by the NAACP? “Make Repubs look bad”. Did you notice the title of this post. You’re a hoot RT.

    “Don’t bring Black people into our games.” You and Nan wanna give this guy a medal?
    Freedom of speech you say. Throw the bum out.

    Seems you want limits on the First Amendment.

    What Sterling said makes him a slug. Never mind that he got set up by a gold digging chippy over a private conversation he had. But what he said has not caused anyone to lose their career, or be murdered, or cause someone to burn down buildings. Now, thanks to the left, we have abolished the First Amendment so that one can be convicted of hate “speech” and destroyed?

    And never mind all the Democrat blacks that have called Clarence Thomas an “Uncle Tom” or Al Sharpton and Louis Farrakhan’s hateful speech toward white people. Sharpton causes death and destruction and he gets rewarded with his own TV show.

    Here’s the bottom line, RW; you either support the First Amendment, no matter who says what about whom, or you want to live in the USSA.

    Defend this racist all you want RT. I gotta wonder what that says about you?

    I don’t know the man and have no knowledge as to whether he’s a racist or not. I, as you, wore a uniform to give a person the right to say whatever he wants to say in the privacy of his home. I still respect the Constitution and the rights given in it. Just because a person says something in the privacy of his home that you don’t like does not mean that you should be prepared to abandon the Constitution.

    @Ignatz: Very funny. As has been pointed out, here on this blog, Sterling is registered as a Republican but all his political activities are in support of Dimocrats. All his political donations are to Dimocrats. So you can call him whatever you please, his actions are 100% Dimocrat

    The NAACP isn’t a partisan organization. It isn’t affiliated with the GOP or the Democratic Party.

    If you want to assert that a majority of black people voting for democrats means the NAACP must be Democratic, I guess you’ll have to consider the Tea Party to be Republican for the sake of logical consistency.

    Would you put this in the Dimocrat logic category?
    I can see that persons that vote Dimocrat might be considered to be Dimocrats
    But I fail to see where members of the TEA Party are inclined to vote for any particular party and therefore a judgment as to which party they are ‘considered’ to be would have to be withheld.

    In agreement on what? Something swirling around in your head? Exactly what is it I am supposed to be agreeing on?

    I’d love to get the thoughts of others at F.A.

    Why? Do you need the support of others for some reason? Who are you looking for? Someone who will agree that the First Amendment should have different standards for different people; one standard for white people, another standard for blacks? Because that damn sure seems to be your opinion when you yell “get a rope” for Sterling, yet never condemn your own party for calling Clarence Thomas an “Uncle Tom” or causing the harm Al Sharpton has caused only resulting in him getting his own TV show.

    @Greg: Your correct if you say the Tea Party Patriots are mostly Republicans!! That’s exactly why the Republicans with the Tea Party Patriots took back the House in historic numbers in 2010. They ran unified against wasteful spending and 0-blamacare in 2010 and took the House and in 2014 it will happen again but the Senate will then be under Republican control as well as gains in the House!! When your Democrat President runs by telling America Al Qaeda is on their heels and then Benghazi blows up or when he tells America if you like your health insurance and/or doctor you can keep them “period” America will remember!!
