Skip to comments.I don't give a RAT'S ASS what Donald Sterling said! (Vanity, damn right!)

Sewage eaters and garbage pickers like TMZ are the ones who need to be punished.--Leave the dude alone. Why do Blacks and other minorities have this special right not to ever be offended?
The dude was in his private home, presumably, or some private place. its no one else's business.
The Liberals and race hustlers in this country are like the Nazis trying to hunt down every last Jew, test everyone's blood trying to find one drop of Jewish blood or anyone who sides with the Jews.
Remember: “The politics of personal destruction”
It’s OK — Sterling is a Democrat.
Remember this important fact..if the girlfriend had posted a picture of her with let’s say, Ted Cruz and Sterling had gone on a GOP laced rant, the media would have applauded him..or if he had gone on a Jew spewing hate rant, same reaction, actually there would have been NO reaction..not defending Sterling, but he said this on a recording to a woman he is in litigation with, people say stupid things when they are angry, Sterling is a douche bag, but the overreaction to this is somewhat comical
I’ve never heard of this guy but what I see is old, rich guy - has young, hot, likely money-grubbing girlfriend, who ironically also happens to be part black and hispanic.
He doesn’t like her hanging out with the brothers in public.
In my view, he knows her nature, and is afraid of being cuckholded.
That is the source of his fears - and his comments.
Eh. The guy said he didn’t like black people. It’s not the end of the world but I can understand why black people would be a angry at him. If I heard someone didn’t like white folks (like a certain president) that wouldn’t make me happy.
The dude is a huge Democrat that’s been awarded by the NAACP so maybe it’ll raise a few eyebrows with blacks that the Dems don’t all like them even though they use them.
If a tree....
I’m not certain anyone gives a rat’s a$$.
She’s in litigation with him huh? What’s that about?
He’s suing her, for allegedly swindling 1.8 million dollars from him..she supposedly told him she would “Get even” with him
They should know that by the fact no one will live near them, shop in their hoods, send their kids to school in the central cities.
The rejection should be obvious
This what I hearing from people that in the know
She being sue by Donnie for embezeelment over real estate deals or something
Ahhh, now that I did not know. Interesting. What I did know is that Donald Tokowitz Sterling is a major sleazeball and has been so for a long time. He’s had a string of much younger compensated girlfriends who have figured in several previous episodes of bad press.(For the poster who compared criticism of Sterling to Nazi attacks on Jews, Sterling is himself Jewish. He was born Donald Tokowitz and added the surname Sterling as an adult.)
Why should the black players care? He’s paying them millions. He should threaten to shut down the team. He’s got enough money and he’s so old he could go out in a blaze of glory!
I wonder how many others in the NBA can have their private telephone calls recorded and pass this new litmus test? If expressing you personal views in private can be used to destroy you, then we are well on our way to a police state.
I am though giving a damn what anyone says that offends any of the protected classes.
I'm not sure terms like "left" or "right" are very useful here: Communism is assumed to be "left-wing" and Nazism "right-wing", and my former colleague Jonah Goldberg has written an entire book on that, named for a coinage of H G Wells': "liberal fascism". But on the matter of "tolerant" "centrist" fascism: In the Twentieth Century, a nation of great beauty and culture embraced Fascism, and a backward peasant society embraced Communism, and the most evolved civilization in Europe embraced Nazism. And observers still wonder why the great anglophone democracies were almost alone in not going down this path. I think the reason's simpler than it seems: No one - Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Mao, Franco - had devised a form of totalitarianism appealing enough to seduce them. Now they have. As the Bundy example illustrates, a free people will cheerfully abandon bedrock principles like equality before the law if state power is being used to torment a racist or a homophobe or someone whose very presence offends against the citizenry's sense of its own virtue. Whether or not this is a middle-of-the-road fascism, it's certainly a very flattering strain: what, after all, is wrong with benign despotism in the cause of preventing "climate change" or transphobia - or ensuring that Nevada's desert tortoise has an area the size of the United Kingdom to gambol and frolic in?
I did not know that Sterling was Jewish so I guess that takes him going on a Jewish rant..but since he is a lifelong liberal(Who has contributed to Democrats 100 percent of the time) if he had gone on an Anti GOP rant nothing would have been said about it, there would have been no outrage..and yes, this girlfriend of his, this gold digger(Yeah I really doubt she was with him for his body LOL) was being sued by the Sterling family for embezzling 1.8 million dollars from the family and had told Sterling that she would “Get even” with him..Sterling has been a businessman for the longest time, why he allowed himself to be tape recorded is just so idiotic, its something an amateur would have allowed to have happen
Sterling regularly takes out full page ads in the L.A. Times promoting his acts of philanthropy and real estate projects.
I’m not offended either. Most jews in the L.A. have the same feeling, believe me. Most of my friends in the fabric district have the very same attitude towards blacks. Heck, it’s because they’re right close to Skid Row and see how blacks act vs illegals who just come to work.
So, she’s half black aka Obama & according to my husband, it’s not a shocker to hear this from Sterling..but he’s a democrat so im sure most of the crap he’s said has been swept under the rug or not recorded!
Why all the sudden outrage? Sounds like a setup by the girlfriend? Especially with the pending lawsuit...& Magic should keep his trap shut, he’s no saint.
Are you really sitting here defending his train of thought? His opinions here are deplorable...there isn’t any wiggle room for misinterpretation to have happened his intentions were clear.
I guess what pissed off Magic is when he said he doesn’t want Magic to come to any Clipper games..first of all, Magic was a Laker I have no idea why he would even go to Clipper games..us Laker fans hate the Clippers..and your right, Magic is NO saint, since he is constantly raising money for Obama and promoting Commiecare I really don’t care for him much anymore. I appreciate what he did for the Laker organization, making it Showtime but him getting political, rubbed me the wrong way
The “Girlfriend” is a gold digger, and she obviously taped it on purpose to set him up, she already told him she would “Get even” with him so he’s an idiot for even flapping his gums like that, he should have known better. No one becomes a successful businessman in life without knowing how to handle situations like this
Read at the daily caller how Sterling has contributed to Dems 100 percent of the time, but it doesn’t say if he donated to Obama’s campaign, usually when something like this happens the left goes nuts calling people like Sterling “Right wing” we haven’t heard that have we? Because they know he is one of their own
You sanctimonious SOB. Don’t you dare lecture me boy. You make me sick.
Have you ever had an unacceptable thought? An impure thought? Have you ever said anything at anytime in your adult life that is socially unacceptable or suspect? How about we have that on tape and parade it and play it in front of your family, friends and co-workers?
This guy, be he good, bad or in-between, is being railroaded. You defend that? To my face you lecture me you coward, see what happens.
The game tomorrow should be interesting! They’ve already announced that Sterling won’t be attending..smart move & not unexpected. This whole thing just smells of a setup.
I’m not defending, even Baron Davis tweet hinted that this shouldn’t be a big shocker in regards to what Sterling said. It’s obvious that’s he’s always been a racist dbag. But Sterling also a democrat so, have they always just brushed aside because he batted for the right team?
I was born/bred a Laker fan & still am..80’s showtime, Kobe/Shaq years etc..but I’ve always loved the Clippers, even during their crappy years & there have been many. Again, not defending but Griffin, Paul, Jordan, Crawford etc..such a great team this year & would hate for this to throw a wrench into their playoff season.
You sound like you’re 100 years old.
Deplorable as they may be, the point is, the Left says things about Conservatives, and some cases about Whites, that are just as offensive and outrageous, yet they never seem to be the target of outrage as Sterling is.
Of course one could attribute that to the fact that Conservatives tend to have much thicker skin.
Lay off the roid’s rager you must be a cop. I do not have thought of ill content towards a general group of people, that is just ignorant. Have I made stereotypical jokes towards friends of different backgrounds of course, but Sterling clearly conveyed the feeling that he feels black people are inferior human beings who people shouldn’t be in contact with and I don’t harbor feelings like that towards anyone.
There is a difference when Rush Limbaugh gets misinterpreted and labeled a racist...that angers me when the pc liberal media does that but like I said Sterling’s comment left no room for misinterpretation they were absolutely clear in his content
Are we really going to rally around a racist? He has his right to his opinion but don’t be surprised when most other people make it clear they want him far away from the NBA. The league is 85% black. What moron says these things while owning a NBA team???
Finally someone else here who won’t rally around this old racist turd
I’m ashamed that people here would rally around the guy. This isn’t a case of the media targeting a conservative for a misinterpreted joke or opinion where they twist true meaning...the guy is a life long democrat who clearly stated he doesn’t think black people or good enough people to be around and unless you feel the same way why would you defend his line of thinking? Freerepublic is better than that we don’t rally bigots, we are moral principled people
“Im ashamed that people here would rally around the guy.”
Blacks have plenty to say about white people; let them play victim with each other while the world moves on. I have no horse in this race, but I have no sympathy for anyone who is allowed to have a “national association” represent them while I can’t.
Let the left have their circular firing squad; there is no downside to this story.
Game is on right now Clippers getting their asses handed to them
Everyone has known that Sterling was a racist for like 20 years I dont know why people are shocked, I think its more like fake shocked.
Ive always been a Laker fan, my Dad got me hooked and it started from there..the Shaq/Kobe era was GREAT..that Horry shot, unbelievable, wouldn’t have won a title without him..Showtime Era was great too, even though Magic is a huge Obama zombie and supporter of Commiecare, I will always be grateful for what he did for this city bringing us so many titles
Yes, exactly. IMO Sterling won't get lasting media heat precisely because he is a longtime major Democrat donor. It's something of a get out of jail free card.
Cliven Bundy, on the other hand, will get bad press to the grave and beyond.
When can we start recording what Obama, Holder, Sharpton and Jesse say in private?
I agree with your right to privacy thoughts. If TMZ broke the law airing secretly recorded conversation, they should be punished.
However, I vehemently disagree with your comparison of racists to Jews.
It is wrong to hate groups of people because of their skin color or culture or religion. In any decent civilization. Judge by behavior or choice. We can hate proven racists because their behavior hurts everyone. You shouldn’t hate all Jews. It’s not the same thing.
If you illegally spied on your daughter’s new fiancé and found out he is Hispanic, is it equivalent to finding out through the same illegal spying that the fiancé is a member of the Klan?
.or if he had gone on a Jew spewing hate rant, same reaction, actually there would have been NO reaction..
I hope there would have been. I think so.

I would NEVER rally around the guy. I am pissed when the left calls us racist because we wish everyone, color blindly, could have a fair beginning to get out there and create their own life. We don’t wish to calculate grievances and dole out prizes for the worst.
But this guy is a clear, through and through racist. Separate the issue of how he was caught on tape (for that is of course an issue): I would hate to be involved with this creep in any way. I’d hate to be sitting and reading this in my Sterling apartment right now, or be a player on his team. Sick.
If he had gone on a GOP laced rant he would have been applauded, sad but true
Well, yeah, and tmz wouldn’t have bought it, either. Alec Baldwin has how many 100 million $ jobs and how many big awards since saying we should kill Henry Hyde and his family and children??
And I dont remember the media making a fuss when Harry Reid said that Obama speaks with a “Negro dialect” also, yesterday was watching an interview with Charles Barkley, he said he wonders how Sterling feels about “Normal” blacks since he obviously hates Magic Johnson..and I was thinking, what kind of statement is that, normal blacks in comparison to what, abnormal ones..Sir Charles isn’t the most educated person in the world but you can bet the media would have gone nuts had a white person said that
Somebody should record those racist anti-white remarks and jokes which black rap artists, comedians, and commentators have to say in private to each other.
Oh, wait. It’s right there in public on TV and You Tube every day and nobody cares.
I didn’t compare racists to Jews. You are an idiot or cant read.
What is being done to the man is wrong! Wrong is wrong. It doesn’t matter who it is being done to.
I don’t know what exactly was done to him but it does appear private conversations were taped without permission and disseminated. Whatever the laws are around that, everyone deserves the right to privacy. However, there are limits.
What if the man was on his balcony and his neighbor heard it all and taped it? I honestly don’t know the details of how this tape was made.
But yeah, if he were tricked, that is illegal.
Excellent points, my neighbor Sarah! Yeah, them people (democrats) can get away with a lot more. Wonder what Charles meant, normal meaning guys who can’t get thousands of sex partners and AIDS?
I think what Charles was trying to say is that if Sterling feels that way about a rich black celebrity what must he feel about “Regular” black folks who attend his games. That is what I think he was trying to say but since Charles is an uneducated schmuck it came out wrong..oh and I am gonna give out another theory about this “Girlfriend” of Sterlings, what set him off is that pic of her and Magic, maybe Magic and this chick were having an affair..this woman is known to have multiple aliases, her supposed name isnt even her name, and she does do this, swindle rich men for their money, who knows, maybe Sterling found out that she and Magic were doing the nasty and he was afraid of getting AIDS from him
