NAZI Basketball Association Outlaws Thought Crimes
American Uncensored News Network ^ | April 30, 2014 | Jonathon Moseley

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 Putin’s Russia is silencing dissent. The Russian Duma has just passed Putin’s 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 Putin’s control.

On April 29, a consensus of self-righteous, chest-thumping censorship was widely heard, including even from Ann Coulter and Bill O’Reilly. We are now living in George Orwell’s book 1984 in place of the late, great U.S.A.

The NBA’s actions were condemned by Larry Elder, African-American radio talk show host: The worst thing [Sterling] said was ‘Don’t bring your black friends to the games.’ “The black friends can go, just don’t have em sit next to you. If Magic wants to go, just don’t 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.

1984 portrays the mind control techniques of group hate sessions. Every day the people were called into assemblies to shout their hatred for the officially-designated enemies, chosen by manipulative officials. Group hatred protected Oceania’s leaders from the people stopping to think about their corrupt leaders. In modern America, we are instructed to all hate the scapegoats chosen for us. I would say “bread and circuses,” but how many people even know what that technique of diversion and crowd control means any more?

Most U.S. college students and schoolchildren were required to read 1984 in their academic studies. George Orwell’s book was meant as a warning. But the modern New Left and Obama’s 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 don’t like what someone has to say, don’t 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 don’t 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 someone’s 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 ACLU’s lawyers defended the right of Nazi’s to march and express their opinion, realizing that freedom of speech affects everyone.

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.

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?

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.

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.

If words can be so bad..then words can be a capital offense fit for execution. ...really when does it stop..at a capital crime word?..just say it and you will be put to death..in fact just be accused of saying the capital crime work and no trial. .just taken to a tree and strung up.

Is this progress?..is this progressivism in action?

Those were civil actions, not criminal. Nobody should be condemned for settling those.

I bet the ratings for the playoffs are better this year. People are talking about basketball who normally wouldn’t and it’s happening during the playoffs and like you say the playoffs are good so far.

Coming to a basketball franchise near you. The NBA wants to own all of the franchises, and become more than just an organization, diverging froms sports into just fully scripted entertainment.

The recordings of telephone and private conversations are illegal, a crime punishable by prison or fine AND are inadmissible in court. The NBA will be unable to use the recordings it based its decision on. I think that might make defending its actions difficult.

Cal. Penal Code 630-638.

Section 631 makes recording telephone conversations illegal without consent. Section 632 makes recording private conversations illegal without consent. Both go on to state: "Except as proof in an action or prosecution for violation of this section, no evidence obtained as a result of eavesdropping upon or recording a confidential communication in violation of this section shall be admissible in any judicial, administrative, legislative, or other proceeding." Whether these sections apply to recorded private conversations that are not communicated by telephone or cell phones is not clear.

I'm just saying, if they booted Sterling, they should have done it years ago about that housing discrimination case. I not only say this but I'd say that is what Kareem Jabbar and some pundits on TV have said. As someone said, this is only happening because the taped phone conversation landed on the front page.

As Kareem Abdul Jabbar wrote:

What bothers me about this whole Donald Sterling affair isn’t just his racism. I’m bothered that everyone acts as if it’s a huge surprise. Now there’s all this dramatic and very public rending of clothing about whether they should keep their expensive Clippers season tickets. Really? All this other stuff I listed above has been going on for years and this ridiculous conversation with his girlfriend is what puts you over the edge? That’s the smoking gun?

He was discriminating against black and Hispanic families for years, preventing them from getting housing. It was public record. - Kareem Abdul Jabbar

I don't think so....From the other cases....he just pays cuz it's cheaper.

Please read the old articles...he may not be a nice man.....but those players take home ridiculous paychecks. Johnson must have promised them bonuses....and the NBA is 2.5 mil richer.

Tell me no one is getting paid on the side.....and I'll tell you about his bridge for sale....

I was on a business trip to Turkey in November 1992. When I arrived on Saturday, the press was buzzing about 5 members of parliament that said something offensive. By Monday, the parliament passed an ex post facto law making the utterances of those 5 a capital offense. They were executed on Wednesday. I flew out to Italy on Friday. It can happen. Especially with a government tilted in favor of Islamic values.

I can't help but think Holder and his DOJ were involved in the leaking of Sterling's comments.. I'd like to know what media outlets were involved and how this was orchestrated so nice and with a big bow on top.. This all plays a bit too well into the thought police's hands, and timed to overshadow incriminating Benghazi info.. Hmmmm...

This leak was not just the act of a scorned black female.. No how, NO WAY. Something much bigger behind all of this. This stinks of a DOJ/Holder/Sharpton shakedown. ANOTHER shakedown in a series of many in the works.

NBA isn’t like the NFL, they get good money from TV, but not nearly as high a percentage, they could never function on just TV like the NFL could. And the TV networks get the money to pay the NBA by selling ads, without sponsors ratings mean nothing. One way or the other it’s bad press and nobody want the lead off story for every sports talk show being about how bad a person one of your owners is.

Thanks. I guess all I meant was that they had two or three days of bad press before they handled it, but after that I bet the NBA makes more off of these playoffs than if the story never broke at all.

It’s certainly the way I see it - as I posted on another thread this morning about the same subject. Why on earth aren’t people able to see that this will set a precedent and we’ll next see legislation for the death penalty for such an offense???

Larry Elder has it right!!! I only caught him at the end of yesterday’s show and he was really nailing this - true Larry with guts and to heck with PC.

I listen to him on the computer here in GA...

Probably, but a lot of that has to do with handling it. Now that the punishment has been announced the story will wind it’s way to the back pages and gone completely (at least until the next owner’s meeting or lawsuits get filed). With players threatening strikes if nothing was done this story could have kept at a high profile for a long time, not to mention costing them games. In the end the commissioner’s job is to protect the shield, he needs to short circuit bad press, not worry about whether the bad press is legitimate.

I agree with that. To me, if a fast food franchise owner was secretly recorded as telling his mistress that he didn’t want her to eat 80% of the product they sell in public, what the heck is that company supposed to do? It’s not even a good analogy because the actual food they sell can’t threaten to boycott and ruin your most important time of the year.

Well, anyone can accuse you or me or anyone about anything. If Sterling was investigated -- and nothing happened -- maybe the allegations were FALSE.

Anyone who gets angry can drop a dime on you. And you should hope that when it gets investigated, you will be cleared at the end of the investigation.
