Posted on 04/30/2014 9:03:35 AM PDT by Moseley
On April 29, the Nazi Basketball Association (NBA) managed to become even more offensive than Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers. This is quite an achievement. The fascist outlawing of private thought crimes by the NBA is the only thing that could be more offensive than the racist comments made by Sterling. Sterling is so racist that he is a Jewish man very conspicuously shacking up with a half-Black, half-Mexican girlfriend. (Huh?)
At this very moment, Vladimir Putins Russia is silencing dissent. The Russian Duma has just passed Putins law regulating bloggers on the internet. Journalists, activists, and critics in Russia have been jailed, ostracized, persecuted, and pushed into bankruptcy. Social media is now illegal in Russia unless the servers are physically operated inside Russia under Putins control.
On April 29, a consensus of self-righteous, chest-thumping censorship was widely heard, including even from Ann Coulter and Bill OReilly. We are now living in George Orwells book 1984 in place of the late, great U.S.A.
The NBAs actions were condemned by Larry Elder, African-American radio talk show host: The worst thing [Sterling] said was Dont bring your black friends to the games. The black friends can go, just dont have em sit next to you. If Magic wants to go, just dont have him sit next to you for that, he loses his team?
The NBA did not merely distance itself from controversial comments, such as by demanding a very public apology, but banned Sterling for life, fined him $2.5 million, and began steps to force Sterling to sell his ownership of the basketball team. One should remember that the offensive comments were made in private and released only for the purpose of engineering the controversy at hand.

Most U.S. college students and schoolchildren were required to read 1984 in their academic studies. George Orwells book was meant as a warning. But the modern New Left and Obamas team seem to take 1984 as a how to manual. Recently, 1984 has become the detailed blueprint for taking over control of traditional America and redesigning our society.
America was built on the idea of tolerance for divergent views and opinions. That means that if you dont like what someone has to say, dont listen to it. Ignore them. Living on a planet of 6 billion people requires being an adult and mature enough to accept that other people dont think the same way you do. It is childish to feel that everyone has to agree with you. It is childish to feel upset that someones opinion is different from yours.
Fascism begins by riding popular sentiments. Then, once the precedent of thought control is well-established and accepted, the government can start silencing its critics using the same techniques and arguments. Obviously, if unpopular people can be silenced, then you too can be silenced the moment you express non-standard thoughts.
Yes, the NBA is a private institution, not government. But conditioning society to accept the repression of different opinions and ideas is preparing the ground for government-imposed fascism soon to follow.
Thought control is one of the greatest dangers to humanity. It is un-American. If American citizens are no longer free to hold opinions that are not officially approved, then freedom, liberty, and America have all died. Decades ago, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) used to understand that if the most unpopular people are not free to express opinions that most people reject, then no one is truly free. If you can only express opinions that the authorities agree with, then we are all mind slaves. The ACLUs lawyers defended the right of Nazis to march and express their opinion, realizing that freedom of speech affects everyone.
National Blacks-Only Basketball Association?
Meanwhile Jay-Z can be an agent and hang out at games with his racist medallion.
From Daily Mail or search on Jay-Z racist medallion:
Jay-Z causes outrage by wearing gaudy medallion of ‘Five Percent Nation’ group who believe whites are ‘wicked and weak’
I haven’t watched pro basketball in over 30 years because it is a racist institution. It is racist because they won’t facilitate the encouragement, support and enthusiasm for white players in their ranks. Further, their advertisers actively support this racism.
In 2006, the Bush Justice Department are the ones that started investigating Sterling over Housing Discrimination.
If Sterling is to be banned from the NBA, then that was the event that should have triggered it, not this incident.
Look. There is a constitutional right to free speech. There is not a constitutional right to own a professional basketball team. It’s a sign of the culture and frankly I don’t care.
Do you mean that if I'm walking down the street talking with a friend....and someone catches my "black" conversation on their recorder and give it to TMZ, these ------- blacks can railroad me?
It will all backfire, mark my words.
Can you say, “see you in court” as in a COURT of LAW soon?
We are already there and have been for years. The Court system is corrupted and all it had to do is wait for insane Americans to put the nail in the coffin. Next step is to put a bowl object on your head, extract thoughts, and if they don't like what you think they will execute you. Is this sarcasm?
Stuff like this is what will keep the lawyers happy.
That is why I see a bigtime revolt down the road. It is coming.
You got it.
No, don’t know how you get that out of what I said.
Uh no. They outlawed getting bad PR. Thanks to Sterling nobody has noticed that the NBA actually has a pretty good playoffs happening all week. Get bad press, get the ax, that’s how things work in the spotlight. People can think whatever they want, so long as it doesn’t land them in the press.
anti-white racism is apparently fine and dandy
That’s what I think, Sterling should be able to sue the NBA for millions in damages over this. The NBA from what I see are doing this from an illegally taped conversation, Sterling was tried in the court of public opinion. Every citizen has a right to privacy and the right to free speech. That’s why I said if the NBA got rid of Sterling, they should have gone with the Investigation started by the Bush Administration over Housing Discrimination.
Is this progress?..is this progressivism in action?
That incident didn’t generate a storm of bad press. It’s not about what you do, it’s about what page of the newspaper it lands on.
Those were civil actions, not criminal. Nobody should be condemned for settling those.
Is this progress?..is this progressivism in action?
