In Defense of Donald Sterling

Posted by Troy on 28th April 2014 in Current Events

In the proud tradition of defending the unpopular for ratings, I shall defend him.  How could I?  How dare I?  Oh, do read on!

I awoke this morning with all kinds of yelling and snapping on my radio alarm clock talking about this guy and his racist comments and that the President himself commented on it and all kinds of stuff, and I was like… “Dude, what this guy say that the President had to step away from the Ukraine situation and the Palestine situation and the taking away all our rights situation to comment about this?!”  So I went and found out!

Having listened to the whole exchange with his “girlfriend,” here is my take on it:

The chick took a picture of herself with Magic Johnson.  She posted this on the internet.  This guy’s friend started calling him up and razzing him about it.  Cool or not, that’s probably what started this argument.  Apparently, they were talking about going to Europe, and he cancels the trip because of the fighting with the girlfriend.  Now, bear in mind, he didn’t forbid her from hanging with MJ or anything else…just don’t post it on-line so he doesn’t get razzed by his friends.  She refuses to let matters drop and keeps needling him and needling him because she WANTS him to say this.  Things are falling apart with this rich guy, so this is the next thing for her to do.  Get a little fame, do some interviews, make some money, etc…  The whole time, she is calling him “Honey” like she reeeeeeeally cares for him, all the while setting him up.

So, why am I defending the guy?  Because I’m sick of it.  People are talking about taking away his team (which he paid for) for what?  Because he holds views you don’t agree with?  Fascist!  What gives you the right?  If it offends you, don’t go to the games.  The team will go broke, and he will sell the team.  That’s it.  You are upset because an EIGHTY year old white guy has some racist beliefs?  Well, hell, lets just execute everyone with views not congruent with the mainstream.  Fascists!  Is this it?  Shall the ownership of property be based on how people think of you?  Hell, that does sound like what Democrats want.  I do like all the athletes saying they wouldn’t have played in the playoff game.  Easy to say when you didn’t get there.  Of course, it is important to note that the Clippers players didn’t care enough to forego their wages for the game and quit.  That would have earned them a lot of respect in my eyes, but they declined, so their protests fall on deaf ears for me.

Between Donald or his girlfriend, I have more dislike of her.  She is a whore.  No more, no less.  Oh, she’s under a long term contract and very well paid, but she is a whore none the less.  She is only dating this guy because of his money, and she only had a problem with him when it looked like the gravy train was coming to a close.  I am sure that some people can fall in love with someone 50 years older than them.  However, if you really loved someone, you would never set them up and purposefully betray their trust the way she did.

The biggest reason I’m against all of this talk is simple: it is de facto thought crime.  He is going to be punished for the way he thinks.  To hell with that.  And for the record, I’m a white guy married to a filipina.  Doesn’t matter.  I don’t demand everyone think the way I do.  Also, this was a lovers’ spat.  Query: has anyone said something offensive or unfortunate when in a fight with a loved one?

Long Live the Constitution!
