What Racist Bigot Donald Sterling Needs To Be Saying: I’m Clearly Not A Racist Because I’m A LIBERAL DEMOCRAT

April 28, 2014

The moment you’ve got an ugly scandal like this one and the word “conservative” or “Republican” isn’t blasted all over the story, you pretty much know the cockroach is a liberal:

Liberal #Democrat Donald Sterling Caught on Tape Screaming Ugly Racist Epithets

Amazing.It’s been almost like clockwork this last couple of weeks. Leftists got a squirrelly reprieve with the fake Cliven Bundy sideshow, but then the left gets back on track with their racist repertoire of hate. Seriously. It’s too good. You just can’t make up these far-left Democrat Party supporting leftists spewing vile racial epithets, all caught on tape. Clockwork baby.I say it all the time: the Democrat Party is the country’s natural home to racists and ethnic eliminationists. And now we have über liberal real estate mogul and sports owner, Democrat Party contributor and philanthropist, Donald T. Sterling in the news with yet another case of vile leftist racial hatred.Here’s the headline story at Memeorandum, “Clippers Owner Donald Sterling to GF – Don’t Bring Black People to My Games, Including Magic Johnson” and on Twitter:And there’s a YouTube clip at the Independent Journal Review, “Explosive Audio: L.A. Clippers Owner Donald Sterling Shows Us All What Truly Ugly Racism Sounds Like.” As it notes there:

Just for the record, Sterling’s record of political support is for two Democratic politicians: former California Governor Gray Davis and three-term Senator Bill Bradley.

Of course! Sterling’s a liberal leftist Democrat of the first order! Also here, “Follow the Money: Political Contributions of NBA Owners.”

What’s hilarious is none of this is new. Sterling’s far-left racist bigotry has been on the public record for a long time. See this Los Angeles Times report from black liberal Los Angeles Times columnist Sandy Banks in 2010, “Donald Sterling is generous, impolitic and eager to be liked“:

You can’t flip through our newspaper these days without spotting the giant ads Sterling buys promoting his awards and donations, his smiling face plastered among a jumble of names and cut-and-paste photos.

I wangled an invitation because I wanted to meet him. I was curious about the man — and the motives — behind the generosity. Sterling has been dogged for years by claims that he’s a bigot. Was this simple image repair or true redemption, I wondered.

Two months ago, Sterling settled a housing discrimination lawsuit by the U.S. Justice Department for $2.7 million. Four years ago, he spent millions to settle a similar lawsuit brought by a fair housing group.

Both accused him of trying to exclude blacks, Latinos and families with children from renting apartments in buildings he owns.

Yet there he was last week playing Santa, handing out $1 million from his private charitable foundation to 10 high schools in South and East Los Angeles and 20 charities across Los Angeles County.

Like Skid Row’s Para Los Niños, “another fabulous Hispanic charity in Boyle Heights, where I grew up,” Sterling said.

And Roosevelt High, “with all the Hispanic kids,” he said, “where nobody thought they could study and learn calculus until that teacher” — Jaime Escalante — came along.

Oops — Escalante taught at Garfield High, which also received a Sterling grant.

And left-wing author and activist Earl Ofari Hutchinson, back in 2009, hammered Sterling’s racism — and took the NAACP to task for giving the Clippers owner a pass on his disgusting racist bigotry. See, “Put Donald T. Sterling’s NAACP Award on Hold“:

A Google search with the name Donald Sterling and racial discrimination found nearly 12,000 results. Not one of them even remotely had Sterling doing anything to further racial goodwill. The checklist of reported Sterling racial escapades include a Justice Department housing discrimination lawsuit and forced settlement, slurs and gaffes against Hispanics and African-Americans, and that includes two high profile Clipper players, the shooing of minorities away from his pricey Beverly Hills condos and rentals, and an overblown and failed promise to build a Homeless shelter on L.A.s skid row. Then there’s the allegations and lawsuit by former Clipper General Manager Elgin Baylor that Sterling runs his operations like a Southern plantation.

The NAACP airbrushed this away and simply said that Sterling has been a gem in giving oodles of tickets away to needy inner city kids and ladling out some cash to charities and sports camps for them. How any of this ranks as a take the lead, storm the barriers battle against racial injustice is a mystery….

The issue is not what, whether or even if Sterling did anything to further the cause of racial justice and civil rights. He hasn’t. The issue is what the NAACP is doing to further it.

While perhaps Ofari Hutchison’s not persuaded that Sterling’s done much in fact to help the black community, as LAT’s Banks points out, the Clippers owner indeed has a long history of philanthropy for a litany of left-wing causes. Sports Illustrated, back in 2000, ran a major feature story on Sterling, critical of his success as an NBA owner but highlighting his liberal philanthropy, “Up And Down In Beverly Hills“:

Many people believe that Sterling is playing a different game from the rest of the NBA owners. “I don’t know how important winning is to Donald,” says [Carl] Scheer, the team’s general manager Scheer. “He seems more concerned mat his books are balanced, that he runs one of the few NBA franchises with no debt, that he can bring his friends to games.” Those friends—a mix of Friars Clubbers and Merv Era celebs—show up en masse at Sterling’s Malibu White Party, the extravagant tented barbecue-and-bubbly beach bash he often throws at his second home, a neo-Tudor oceanfront bungalow. The party is so named because guests are encouraged to dress all in white, as in The Great Gatsby. “Sterling’s agenda is as much social as professional,” says Los Angeles Times sportswriter Mark Heisler. “He loves the status that owning even a bad team confers.”

He also enjoys the publicity he’s received as a philanthropist. Southern California charities routinely fete Sterling as their Humanitarian of the Year. Since 1997, the title has been accorded him by the Vista Del Mar Orphanage, the Special Olympics, the Los Angeles Yeshiva, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation and the L.A. Police Historical Society. Not that every charity has found it easy to separate Sterling from his swag. Linda McCoy-Murray recognized that last summer when she phoned him to help sponsor a golf tournament in honor of her late husband, venerated L.A. Times sports columnist Jim Murray. Every pro franchise in California, according to McCoy-Murray had forked over at least $5,000 to her foundation, which provides journalism scholarships. Every pro franchise, that is, except the Clippers, which had memorialized Murray on the final page of last season’s media guide. Sterling offered McCoy-Murray two season passes. “You know, that’s wonderful,” she remembers telling him. “but we’re trying to endow a college scholarship fund. We could really use cash.”

Sterling’s a classic Beverly Hills-Hollywood schmoozer and left-wing philanthropist big shot, and the occasional leftist tight wad, heh.

Again, this is just one more case of leftist racism and bigotry, unfortunately too splashy of a celebrity story for the hopelessly biased leftist press to tamp down.

Hillary Clinton has said on multiple occasions that her political heroine is Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood.  On receiving an award from Margaret Sanger’s organization Planned Parenthood, Clinton said:

Now, I have to tell you that it was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision … And when I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I am really in awe of her.

Here are some of Margaret’s best lines:

    • …human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”  Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to blacks, immigrants and poor people
    • “More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12
    • The purpose in promoting birth control was “to create a race of thoroughbreds,” she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)
    • “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” she said, “if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon
    • In her “Plan for Peace,” Sanger outlined her strategy for eradication of those she deemed “feebleminded.” Among the steps included in her evil scheme were immigration restrictions; compulsory sterilization; segregation to a lifetime of farm work; etc. Birth Control Review, April 1932, p. 107
    • “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Margaret Sanger, Women and the New Race (Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923)
    • “Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need … We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock.” (Margaret Sanger, April 1933 Birth Control Review)
    • “Eugenics is … the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial, political and social problems (“The Eugenic Value of Birth Control Propaganda.” Birth Control Review, October 1921, page 5).

The heroine of Hillary Clinton was a freaking Nazi.  And I mean that literally.  Margaret Sanger was an ardent supporter of Hitler’s eugenics program and had a similar “master race” concept (with Aryans clearly being aforementioned “master race” in her warped and depraved mind.

We just saw a giant blowup over Cliven Bundy and his remarks about “the Negro.”  And I want to point out that Bundy is no hero of mine.  But as to the militia who flocked to protect him when the Government began to first confiscate and then to execute his cattle and bury them in mass graves, allow me to respond to liberals’ charges that these conservatives are criminals and “domestic terrorists” by pointing at their own Occupy Movement – which had 7,765 documented arrests including for rape and murder AND terrorism.  And of course we can likewise point out that racism is intrinsic to the left.

Harry Reid basically thought Obama was a “good” negro and that was basically fine with the left.

I mean, yes, liberals like Donald Sterling want to give “other people’s money” to blacks.  But that is because according to liberalism, black people aren’t actually “people” but inferior animals who as “the white man’s burden” need to be cared for on the Democrat Party’s plantation.  All they have to do is keep voting for their masters to get the care which as racial inferiors they clearly cannot provide for themselves.

Donald Sterling doesn’t have a problem with “black people.”  I mean, he hired a black guy as his head coach, right?  He’s only got a problem with black people believing they’re his equals is all.

The Los Angeles Clippers are – as of the moment I write this – getting blown out by the Golden State Warriors.  You have to sympathize with the team: do they play their guts out to the ultimate reward of a racist turd?  Or do they deliberately tank the series after working so hard all year to get to the playoffs?  What the hell are they supposed to do?

Apparently, the black population as a whole doesn’t have much of a problem with Donald Sterling: because they’re going to keep helping the racist turd’s political party – and the plantation system that Sterling endorses – with their votes.

I think of Bill Clinton and what he said to Ted Kennedy when he was trying to persuade him to support Hillary’s nomination over Barack Obama’s:

“A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee,”

And:

 “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”

I mean, white liberals are perfectly happy working with the black people that they own lock, stock and barrel via the welfare system.

I think of Hillary’s attitude toward blacks – via her own sense of entitlement to power as a white liberal – as expressed by liberal Father Pfleger:

“We must be honest enough to expose white entitlement and supremacy wherever it raises its head…. [W]hen Hillary was crying, and people said that was put on, I really don’t believe it was put on. I really believe that she just always thought, ‘This is mine. I’m Bill’s [Bill Clinton‘s]wife. I’m white. And this is mine. I just got to get up and step into the plate.’ And then out of nowhere came, ‘hey, I’m Barack Obama.’ And she said, ‘Oh damn, where did you come from? I’m white. I’m entitled. There’s a black man stealing my show.‘” Pfleger then mimicked Mrs. Clinton crying as the audience gave him a standing ovation. Added Pfleger: “She wasn’t the only one crying. There was a whole lot of white people cryin’.”

It sounds to me like that is what “almost” NAACP-award-winning Donald Sterling was doing: he was perfectly fine with a black man bringing him his coffee.  Just don’t let them stand too close to the woman he bought himself to keep along with his wife.

Did you get that?  Donald Sterling was just about to get an AWARD from the NAACP for his wonderfulness.  They were JUST about to give this racist pile of filth a lifetime achievement award.  Because he’s a liberal and thus his rather lengthy history of previous race issues was irrelevant.  And the only reason they cancelled it was because it would have made them even bigger laughing stocks than they already ARE.

Tell me how close the damn Koch brothers have ever been to being on the receiving end of an award from the NAACP.  Pluto is closer to the sun is than any conservative has ever been to receiving such an award from this leftist hate group masquerading as an equal rights organization.

“Racism” is just a game to these lying liberals.  It’s no different from the National Organization of Women: they don’t represent women in any way, shape or form.  They represent a leftist ideology and if you are a successful, fulfilled, accomplished conservative woman such as Sarah Palin, well, you’re clearly “anti-woman” the same way a Clarence Thomas or a Ben Carson becomes an “Uncle Tom” if they don’t tow the plantation line and pick the cotton the way they’re supposed to as far as doctrinaire liberalism is concerned.

You better stay on your damn plantation, negro.  Especially if you’re not “light-skinned” and “clean” and “articulate” with “no negro dialect” like Obama or Eric Holder.  Otherwise you can count on the left coming after you with all the viciousness and race-hate it can muster – and they can muster a LOT of race-hate as virtually all black conservatives have learned.

Had Donald Sterling not been literally caught on tape by his mistress explaining in detail what a racist he is, this racist scumbag would have been just one more among many other white liberals who got an award from the black establishment that serves as the foremen on the elitist white liberal plantation.

Obama Regime Has Done Everything Possible To Halt Gulf Oil Spill Cleanup

June 25, 2010

Stop and think about it for a second.  We could have burned the oil – as per the original contingency plan that had been on the books since 1994.  But the Obama regime wouldn’t allow it.  We could have used dispersants to break down the oil and make it easier to deal with.  But the Obama regime wouldn’t allow it.  We could have borrowed skimmers – and all kinds of other critical equipment and clean-up know-how – from all over the world to collect the oil.  But the Obama regime wouldn’t allow it.  We could have used hundreds of miles of boom that were literally sitting unused in warehouses.  But the Obama regime didn’t bother to obtain it.  We could have built sand berms that would have blocked the oil from reaching the most critical coastal areas.  But the Obama regime has done everything possible to stop it.

Feds halt work on LA sand berms
Jeannie DeAngelis

Sand berms are an insurance policy meant to protect the Louisiana coastline from oil spill damage.  The Louisiana sand berm venture involves moving “sand from a mile out in the Gulf of Mexico and pumping it closer in to shore to build manmade barrier islands.”

Nevertheless, lacking a more formidable idea and one week into the project the federal government decided to shut “down the dredging that was being done to create protective sand berms in the Gulf of Mexico.”

Louisiana’s Republican Governor Bobby Jindal staunchly supports protecting the coastline with a sandy barricade, which may explain why the “berm issue has created its own toxic friction between Louisiana and the Obama Administration.”

It seems that ever since Obama took over the reins of reason the government’s first-and-foremost effort is directed at implementing the illogical, obstructing progress and public wellbeing and placing the vulnerable at risk.

Thus, while the duffer- president concentrates on sand bunkers on the golf course, the environmentally alert, “Obama Administration has asked for a halt on dredging sand berms off the Chandeleur Islands … until the project can be relocated farther into the gulf.

Federal costs, environmental concerns and efficiency are likely at the center of the controversy.  As a result, the coast of Louisiana is officially the first victim whose future is at the mercy of an Obama-style “death panel.” Bureaucratic technicalities will determine the extent of damage that will ensue before federal approbation either, administers critical care, or just allows the patient to die, one or the other.

If Obama refuses to lift the ban on the dredging plan Plaquemines Parish President, Billy Nungesser might be the next one called in for a presidential reprimand for public insubordination.

Nungesser, “one of the most vocal advocates of the dredging plan, sent a letter to President Barack Obama, pleading for the work to continue.”  The outspoken sand-berm proponent claims, “Once again, our government resource agencies, which are intended to protect us, are now leaving us vulnerable to the destruction of our coastline and marshes by the impending oil.”

Billy Nungesser targeted Obama as the only “hope for continuing the work.” In an unforgiving dispatch Billy outlined viable options for the President to consider.  Nungesser begged, “Don’t shut us down, let us lay the pipe three miles out and then … move the dredge so we will be down less than a day and we’ll refill the hole.”

Nungesser reminded Obama of the “threat of hurricanes or tropical storms,” which would put the Gulf coast “at an increased risk for devastation … from the intrusion of oil.”

What Nungesser fails to grasp is how a hurricane or tropical storm, coupled with tornadoes of spinning oil would be tailor made for an administration that cultivates and exploits any crisis that fortuitously comes along.

You’re not supposed to notice that Obama’s death panel machine is alive and well, and just waiting to get its chance to decide who lives and who dies in your home.

This disaster of failed leadership comes right after the Obama regime stopped boats involved in vital clean-up efforts for more than a day at a time to ensure that they had fire extinguishers, life jackets, and every single other inane bureaucratic regulation they could think of.

Day 66.  And counting.  Sixty-six days of abject failure.  And even the left recognizes that Obama has been an abject failure.

Instead, we’ve had a bunch of Obama photo ops.  Instead, we’ve had Obama walking on the beach in slacks stopping and stooping to pick up a few tar balls.  Instead, we’ve had a collection of demagogic “here’s someone else you can blame instead of me” speeches.

Obama was previously calling meetings on the subject of whose ass he should kick (needing the bureaucracy of a staff meeting to figure it out).  But he never considered that his own scrawny ass needed a good hard kicking.

As we consider Obama’s failure in the Gulf, let’s not forget that:

Barack Obama took more money from BP than any politician over a twenty year period.  In spite of the fact that he had only been in national politics for less than three years.  Barack Obama’s administration approved the project and granted the permit for the doomed BP drilling site.  Barack Obama’s administration helped quash environmental problems and issued an environmental waiver to BP at said doomed site only days before the disaster.  Barack Obama failed to take the disaster seriously and delayed serious action for weeks, fiddling with fundraisers, golf outings, and vacations while the Gulf went to hell.  The Obama administration has continued to delay and waste time pursuing the dotting of the i’s and the crossing of the t’s regarding mindless bureaucratic inanities.

And what has Obama proposed as his solution?  Nothing that could cap the damn hole, but his socialist cap-and-trade which he himself said would cause energy prices to “necessarily skyrocket.”  In the spirit of never letting a good crisis go to waste, Obama has stoked the boilers for more Marxism.  And the more oil that pours across our coasts, the better.

What has Obama proposed?  He has proposed a ban, or moratorium, on offshore drilling.  Would this cost a permanent loss of tens of thousands of jobs (in fact, well over 100,000 jobs) as drilling platform operators relocate long-term to other countries?  Of course it would.  Would it in fact actually result in more danger to the environment, as it would entail capping and then eventually uncapping wells – the most dangerous part of the entire drilling procedure, as we should frankly all realize by now?  Of course it would.  Would it effectively amount to a ban on ALL American drilling, such that we were at the complete mercy of foreign oil who presumably have the basic intelligence to not undermine their own economies and their own security?  Of course it would.

Fortunately, a judge struck down Obama’s newest naked power grab as “overbearing,” “rash,” and “heavy handed.”  In other words, Obama acted in an incredibly Stalinist manner, didn’t he?

You’d almost think Obama was the Manchurian President, destroying America on purpose in his pursuit of the Cloward and Piven strategy for a Marxist America.  It has got to be either that, or he is so shockingly incompetent that it is utterly unreal.  Which scenario is more the frightening, I frankly don’t know.
