Skip to comments.Racist Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Has only contributed to Democrats
Posted on 04/27/2014 1:39:00 AM PDT by South40
L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, whom commentators have tried to tie to the Republican Party after his alleged racist statements, is in fact a Democrat, according to campaign contribution records.
Sterling is in hot water after TMZ released recordings purporting to be a weird psychosexual rant he directed at girlfriend V. Stiviano, accusing her of publicly associating with black people. The highly offensive comments have drawn condemnation from across the National Basketball Association as well as from many other sources; and inevitably, attempts have been made to link him to the Republican Party. These appear to be based on campaign contribution records for a different Sterling, who lives in the state of Texas. Clippers owner Donald Sterling lives in Beverly Hills, has a long history of bigoted behavior in his Los Angeles business dealings, and according to a 2011 RealGM report, was a very occasional Democratic donor in the 1990s:

The Clippers team said in a statement that the woman on the tape is the defendant in a lawsuit brought by the Sterling family alleging that she embezzled more than $1.8 million, who told Mr. Sterling that she would get even.
Mr. Sterling is emphatic that what is reflected on that recording is not consistent with, nor does it reflect his views, beliefs or feelings, the statement says. It is the antithesis of who he is, what he believes and how he has lived his life. He feels terrible that such sentiments are being attributed to him and apologizes to anyone who might have been hurt by them. He is also upset and apologizes for sentiments attributed to him about Earvin Johnson. He has long considered Magic a friend and has only the utmost respect and admiration for him both in terms of who he is and what he has achieved. We are investigating this matter.
“Sterling was reportedly supposed to receive a lifetime achievement award at the Los Angeles NAACPs 100th anniversary event on May 15.”
WHOOPSEE! I wonder how they’re gonna back-spin on this snafu! ROTFLMAO!!!
He will get an award from The NAACP for being a racist.
Proving their concern is fake.

I’ve told co-workers that make inappropriate comments around others (in jest) that those comments will come back to bite them when those others are in trouble. As soon as one of them is getting fired, or misses out on a promotion, you can bet those “jokes” will come up in a lawsuit...
He’ll payoff some ca$h and nothing will happen.
Maybe some day blacks will figure out what white Dems really think about them.
Almost all racists are Democrats. Most Republicans and all conservatives are indifferent to skin color. Decent people (conservatives) long ago adopted MLK’s policy of judging by the content of a person’s character and not the color of their skin, and only liberals are still obsessed with race.
What we're more concerned about is culture.
But the Left equates criticism of culture with racism.
Democrats have private faces and public faces.
The rest of America has one face, like Bundy.
Liberals love to lambaste others over race, those Americans less sophisticated in hypocrisy.
“Most Republicans and all conservatives are indifferent to skin color.”
Many I know are also indifferent to sexual orientation. That is until they start wearing leather underwear and feather boas and are making out in front of our children.
I’m against the gay political agenda. I’m under the impression that in a free country, however, that it’s not the governments job to chase down sinners who do so in a private place and with consent. But today, that goal is old fashion and it’s more about quotas and gaining gay power.
And with it, destroying all vestiges of Judeo-Christian culture.
If he has given big contributions to the Democrat Party, all will be forgiven and forgotten in 48 hours. Funny how that works ...
Gosh, I wonder how that could have been missed with so many highly intelligent investigative reporters in the MSM.
Below the surface on this one...I don’t like being criticized because my OPINION or view of the world is different than yours. What is wrong, on this basis level, for Sterling to say these things? That’s what he believes. Maybe we agree, maybe we do not...but are we saying he is wrong because “we” are right. This is mind control camouflaged in racism.
Ha....another “Hoist with own petard” event.
He will donate and all is forgotten
Well if he is Lib; then no harm, no foul! Just using their rules against them. Alinsky rule # 4 - Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.
Will he go on the Today show, cry and say, “I is what I is...”?
Then land another big contract deal?
Once you go black...
So Donald Sterling is a democrat, and an idiot. [Sorry for the redundancy]
LOL.............. I love it.
In other words, he said it but he didn’t mean it.
“Many I know are also indifferent to sexual orientation. That is until they start wearing leather underwear and feather boas and are making out in front of our children.”
True dat. I’m not very enthused at ALL about ADULT, HETEROSEXUAL people making out in front of children. I don’t consider this “prudish and unreasonable”.
I love this, when people disavow the very words that were emitted from their own mouths, on record, and available for playback on the Internet, yet.
“Attributed to him”...ROTFLMAO. I’d say “spin-dry” is on at least 11. The nerve of this guy to spit on the people who make money for him.
Toast, with good reason.
Finding out an NBA owner is a D-bag is not news.
According to Forbes he’s worth $1.9 billion.
Welcome to the New America where everything is posted for all to see and judged in a frenzy by social media. Is this the America we want? People spying on one another and judgment by popular opinion? No wonder America is on the decline. Vote now to maintain our Republic and its’ constitution before all trials are by Facebook or other media.
Wonder how much he contributes to planned parenthood each year, to kill about a million black babies in their mothers’s wombs each year?
It’s like the closeted gay Republicans. Every once in while these closet racist Dems show their true colors
I doubt they would have missed it if he had donated to Republicans.
I assume the “new york times’ will also miss the fact that this guy represents how liberal elites feel about ALL the people they think are NOT up to snuff. And that includes conservatives - who they see as ‘hicks’ and every other ethnic group.
Liberal elites are NOT nice people... and they're all covering for this guy's politics ... what a surprise/s
Typical RAT, big donor, NAACP award winner, wife needs to be accompanied by black men for.....@#$%? LOL!
You know that right?
But who knows... what we know is it doesn't matter how lame his lie is because the New York Times and Washington Post will make damn well sure that liberal elites are not looked upon badly.
They cover for their own.
He meant it - but have no fear - liberal elites will circle the wagons... this will blow over...
Liberal elites in the press do NOT want the middle class to see this as 'telling'.
The press knows liberal elite's look down on EVERYONE... including conservatives, gun owners, Christians, Jews, and 'clingers' and every other ethnic group... They will cover for this man...
If he had been a Republican who had donated to Republicans he would be hounded out ... and all Republicans would be painted with the 'racist' brush. He would be tied to Bundy as a blood bother... but - he's a liberal elite and they'll 'chat' about him... then nothing.
That won't happen here...
How many white players on the Clippers roster ?
1/2 of a player ?
I read somewhere the NACCP was scheduled to give him a “Lifetime Achievement Award” on May 15
shows the hypocrisy of everyone involved.
If the media runs with this Texan’s contributions and he gets any kind of retribution he should be able sue the media for their back teeth.
He seemed to be involved in a seedy story 10 years ago.
And is he still married? But he’d be seen at the games with Stiviano (the woman he made the comments to)? Sterling doesn’t seem good for the game.
It does have a very USSR flavor to it.
It's going to be fun watching this play out as the press works to cover uncomfortable facts about liberal elites... and how they look down on everyone. Yeah, blacks, conservatives, Christians, Jews, clingers, NRA members, cattle ranchers, Tea Party members, Hispanics.
Doesn't a part of you enjoy way these hypocrites cover for each other?
Harry "Obama is light skinned" Reid.
Joe "Obama is clean and articulate.!" Biden
Not to mention the millions of Southern dems who fought against civil rights such as George Wallace, Al Gore's father, etc.
Democrat Party hypocrisy bump for later.....
True as true can be.
Once it's learned he is a Democrat just like the big banks in New York who steal 5 billion who then pay a fine of 1.2 billion and are then allowed to sign an agreement of "no wrong doing" and on they go.
I believe you're right. He'll PAY and continue to play.
