Posted on 04/27/2014 2:06:59 AM PDT by lbryce
The racism controversy embroiling Don Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, has reached half way around the world to Malaysia, where President Obama is on a diplomatic mission to Asia Pacific nations. At a press conference with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak Sunday, Obama was asked about racist comments Sterling allegedly made about African Americans. "When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don't really have to do anything, you just let them talk. That's what happened here," the President said.

The only real thing that bothers me is that it allows that cheap, racist bastard, who occupies the highest office in the land having facilitated such an act of amorality in the most fraudulent, felonious manner imaginable and he's going to preach to us about America, its racial sins, talking from up on high on what is moral and right.
Hey, Obama, why don't you GTF out of our Country. NOW!
well, I assume Obama is now going to have a beer with sterling and Donald stern.
Corpse-man . . . 57 states . . . wait for my teleprompter to catch up . . .
Further proof that in today’s America, being a racist is the worst possible crime one can commit.
Don Sterling’s a democart, he will now get an award from Reverends: Al Sharption, Jermiah Wright and Jessie Jackson.
Because was having a private conversation in the privacy of hi sown home, or something very close to his own home.
You don’t get it. HE is the victim here, not any minorities or basketball players or “society”. It is outrageous that this issue is being missed.
I thought Obama’s quote was about himself.
He’s the victim, all right, the victim of his own stupidity.
Hussein, where was your indignation when Alvin Holmes, Black democrat legislator from Alabama, made statements on the floor of the Alabama statehouse opposing black/white marriage, and white adoption of black children? That’s right, he’s black, he gets to look out for his own race.
Yet 0bama is the worst racist of all! Look at who his actions target!
me too, hahahahaha, the most ignorant of them all!!
MomJeans and Holder are the two biggest racists in the US.
This from the guy who sat in Reverend Wright’s church for decades, and who invites noted anti-Semite Al Sharpton to the White House, among other things?
Big Brother monitors all private conversations. Remember that time driving by yourself when that selfish ____ in front of you decided to park blocking the road? The NSA recorded your reaction to that through your turned off cell phone.
“I was wowed by Barack Obama’s oratorical gifts and believe that the country is ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama — a ‘light-skinned’ African American ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” ~Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV)
Another stupid “acted stupidly” comment by pResident Buhwheat.
It’s pretty obvious that he did not in fact know his conversation was being recorded. His privacy was and is being violated. The GF should be charged with violating the law.
Detroit Journalist Charlie LeDuff has noticed the president’s selective silence.
The guy is having a private argument with his girlfriend.
The recording may be illegal.
Clearly, he thinks she is having sex with some of the Black guys he mentions.
The girlfriend makes no attempt to dispute that.
TMZ got the recording from a woman who is being sued by Sterling for embezzlement, and who vowed to get to even with Sterling.
Should all his critics be held to the same standard?
It's now OK to tape and publicly release private conversations that Shaq and Jesse and Snoop and Sharpton have with their intimate partners?
Just a couple weeks ago, half the country was outraged because the NSA cross matched the phone numbers of American citizens with suspected terrorists.
But what has happened to Sterling is OK because he made comments that might be racist?
That's completely sick.
This he can open his trap about, bengahzi no
~~~”When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t really have to do anything, you just let them talk. That’s what happened here,” the President said.~~~
After 6 painful years of hearing him speak, I can confirm he is an expert on the subject.
Pot, meet kettle.
Wow. This just shows how desperate they are. Normally, if it's a Democrat they just look the other way. Really surprised they did this when they could just juice the Nevada rancher for a few more weeks.
“This from the guy who sat in Reverend Wrights church for decades, and who invites noted anti-Semite Al Sharpton to the White House, among other things?”
Not to mention his grandmother who was a “typical white person”.
“Clearly, he thinks she is having sex with some of the Black guys he mentions.”
And the clip I heard on the radio indicates that he is totally “all right” with that but doesn’t want her being seen in public.
Weird! The way he wears his hair is also weird and the babe is obviously nothing more than a paid companion.
Andre Kirslis Will 14 minutes ago Love the 'smile in your face' part of your comment, funny society puts so much respect into being two-faced and has such tolerance for what is simply inexcusable behavior. I wonder if Racists are as incurable as pedophiles? We should have a "skin color offender database" require ankle bracelets, prison sentences, fines consistent with their income, community service such as 1000 hours helping with labor tasks in communities to Teach such individuals appropriate behavior. The more I think about this the more I like it. We Need to rehabilitate, help him. 250 million dollar fine, one year in prison (might as well be a felony), 1000 hours community service.
One racist talks about another racist.
By the way, did you hear about the Democrat fundraisers who are close to Obama, Reid, and Hillary are guilty of breaking the law?
Did you hear gasoline prices are soaring, putting a giant roadblock to prosperity... and Obama is blocking a KEY work that could provide relief?
Anyone know about the veterans at Obama’s VA HOSPITAL in Arizona that were sentenced to death by a panel?
How about America’s deteriorating relationship with nearly every ally across the globe?
No, the FAKE JOURNALISM IN AMERICA is focused upon a millionaire moron’s stupidity and the pathetic Oval Office occupant’s response. Not a coincidence. They are doing their master’s bidding.
Who among us could survive having their private conversation and comments made in the heat of an argument made public.
The girlfriend should be arrested.
So sick of medias fixation on racism. How about reporting new such as VA letting people die in the hospitals, and then covering it up. My country is gone.
Sounds like he's talking about Eric Holder.
Obviously the left hasn’t discovered yet that he is a big donor democrat. This will quickly go away once they do. Dummies like LeBron and magic won’t get it though. This may become embarrassing for 0bumer’s regime.
I completely agree, and you don’t know the half of it. As a person who works in media, I dare not expound further, except to correct you on one key point: It’s not necessarily the media doing the master’s bidding. Allow me to explain...
Today’s ‘major’ media is a culture of it’s own, with a few exceptions. For the most part, they really don’t take orders from the White House. It’s pretty much report by committee, taking their lead from the New York Times and in fact, whatever is trending on social media. Media hacks, government associates all in bed together. You see, without this media, the current White House occupant would have never seem the inside of the Oval Office, let alone last 6 months there.
They made him. They ARE him. He is the standard-bearer of their own myopic ideals. With that said, allow me to throw a few more untold stories in America these days...
* foreclosures still going gangbusters.
* increasing number of un-armed Americans being executed by police.
* In New York State, raids being conducted false pretenses
* In Nevada, secret court hearings.
* In Massachusetts, children being kidnapped, tortured and killed while supposedly under the care of a state agency
* Full-scale civil war percolating just south of the border.
* Ongoing plans to build an internet - insulated and isolated from the U.S (with some of our so-called ‘allies’ on board with the project)
* Both Russia and China flexing their muscles in a fashion not seen since the Cold War.
But yeah, let’s talk about some racists comments during an illegally taped private phone call. Better for ratings.
Sort of strange that he reportedly doesnt mind his black girlfriend hanging out with or screwing black guys, but is upset that she instagrams pics of herself with black guys. There has to be more to this.
"To end racism old white people just have to die."
Yeah Oprah makes sense. She's right. "We're trying, we trying," Knockout Game teams.
Probably why he was scheduled to get the NCAAP AWARD, he acted like the ideal White Male as far as the NCAAP was concerned: old, decrepit, impotent, guilt ridden (at least provides reparations).
I was listening to sport talk shows last night FOX, NBC, ESPN: listening to the Talk Hosts you would have thought it was the Rev Wright talking about Sterling having abducted Obama’s daughters and had his way with them.
Sports Radio talk show have become less about SPORTS and more about promoting the quotas, e.g., not enough black coaches, quarterbacks, Why are there more blacks in baseball? etc,etc.
Never listen to him. Anything he says will needlessly raise your blood pressure.
Pot, meet Kettle...
Don’t you be insulting Buckwheat!
Yeah, he's a typical WHITE democRATic.
The private conversation of this owner is no one’s business but him and his mistress.
Every single person has said things in private, in heated moments, which would not stand up to public scrutiny.
There is something seriously wrong with this country.
If you want to keep your doctor...............
Sterling’s a liberal elite who gives big bucks to Democrats... You know that, right?
So this is the new politically correct speech code for 80 year old men in private conversation?
The news agencies are also relentlessly pounding on the two “racial discrimination” lawsuits he settled with the Feds.
In the first one, he was sued because he “discriminated” against “non-Korean” applicants for low income apartments in the “Korea Town” area of LA.
In the second one, he was sued because he showed preference for white and Asian applicants for a Beverly Hills apartment (not sure if it was low income).
He also owned low income apartments in LA Black neighborhoods, where the apartment residents were 95%-100% Black, but he was NOT sued for that.
