and we care, why?
I just had the unpleasant experience of listening to Sean Hannity display very little outrage over the alleged anti-black comments of the Clippers owner, Donald Sterling. Last week he was turning cartwheels over Cliven Bundy who had the temerity to speak the truth.
Doesn't take long to figure this one out. Hannity was a supporter of Bundy, but claims he didn't even know who Sterling was. Yeppers - no guilt by association on Sterling so we can dial down the rhetoric. He did throw out one "despicable" to solidify his anti-racist stance for the world.
Despicable is a word I would hold in reserve for people who really are despicable. Donald Sterling's "private" comments are a long way from despicable - they're just, in my opinion, stupid.
Most importantly, he has a right to those opinions.
Exactly why I am supposed to care that he told his overly, surgically altered and very weird looking girlfriend to not bring black people around his house or the Clipper games? It seems she taped all those comments and slipped the tape to TMZ.
Oh, and by the way, he's still married to his wife so that makes him an adulterer as well as an old fool. The fact that the family is suing the aforementioned concubine for
embezzling 2 million dollars from them may have something to do with her
allegedly turning over the tape of Sterling's comments to TMZ.
This is supposed to be the United States of America, and he has the right to say what he said and to hold those opinions. You see, no one was harmed in the making of those comments. No one suffered anything more than our new national pastime of "being offended."
I'm a hell of lot more offended and outraged by the things the sock-puppet and his commie cohorts are doing in DC than I am by some silly crap spewing forth from an old man who has to purchase attention from some gold digger.
It seems that people have called for forcing Sterling to sell the Clippers.
People - listen to me.
That should send a chill down your spine.
The fact that there are people in this country who, when "offended" by something someone said, that person is to be destroyed at all costs, is ominous.
Saul Alinsky is, no doubt, gleeful at the uproar over Sterling. It is both a distraction from real issues and further division of the people of this country.
Don't fall for it...
