Rush Limbaugh trips over his own dead weight defending Sterling

Posted: April 29, 2014 by mitchethekid in Conservative Hypocrisy, Conservative Shenanigans, Current Events, Free Speech, Politics

This is really to much to fathom. Exactly who comprises his audience?  Rush today, as indignant as ever said that Strerling was being rail-roaded by the “media” (as if he isn’t part of it) one the basis of one tape recording.!!!!

Talk about timing the interjection of skepticism. Implying that this poor guy is being destroyed. I mean, how to we really know it’s his voice? Hmmm?? Other than Sterling himself coping to it.  What Limbaugh was saying was that even though a murderer confesses, that confession shouldn’t be relied upon as being factual. What a dick he is.

  1. I’m going ahead and reposting this here so it’s on topic:

    I realize I’m of a teensy weensy minority opinion on this, but am I the only one who is a bit concerned that Donald Sterling is being crucified (even if it is only free market crucification) over PRIVATE feelings expressed PRIVATELY to a vindictive, gold-bricking Jezabel? Yes, Sterling’s a racist creep and yes, free market, blah, blah, blah–if it’s bad for the NBA’s bottom line, Sterling will go, I can’t argue with the cold logic of that, it’s the way it should be. But I think the outrage machine is failing to consider some larger issues. Unlike the Eich situation, the vilification of Sterling is over personal opinions that he never intended to see the light of day. Isn’t that a distinction worth considering? In one of the freest nations on earth we are still allowed to THINK whatever we want to, right?

    I appreciate your point of view. There’s a great argument to be made. But that isn’t the essence of what Limbaugh said. He implied that he wasn’t a racist! HA! Whose going to believe one little tape.

  3. No doubt, Limbaugh is a rabble rousin’ ass playing to the rubes. I wrote that before your comments about Limbaugh.

  4. mitchethekid says:

    How about this. El Rushbo says that Sterling was “set up”. Lets assume he was. Explain how he was “set up” to make those racist comments?

    • Well that’s ridiculous. I think it’s clear that Sterling is a racist, especially given his history of being a racist. Whether he was “set up” or not to blab his idiotic, racist comments on this particular tape is almost academic at this point. Although I believe it’s illegal to record someone without their knowledge in California and nobody is raising a stink over that. It would appear the only person who’s been legally violated here has been Sterling.

  5. How do people feel about the prospect of Sterling’s team being confiscated? My guess is it’s probably gonna happen, one way or another. All because of stupid opinions expressed privately. Funny, I’m a huge free speech advocate and old enough to remember and still believe in the quaint liberal bromide: “I disagree with what you say but will defend to the death your right to say it”. Wise words. Sadly, these days (and it’s not only liberals who are to blame) the professionally offended would have “I disagree with what you say and will vilify you, deprive you of your property rights and life’s work and see that you walk as a pariah among men for the rest of your days”.

  6. mitchethekid says:

    Why? What’s going on?

    • Well, along with the lifetime ban to the NBA and millions in fines they’re trying to force him to sell his team. OK, it’s not confiscation but certainly is stripping him of ownership.

      • Marner says:

        I may be in the minority, but I think its fine. When someone wants to buy a sports franchise, they must get permission from the other owners and agree to be bound by league rules.Sterling knew this and I’m sure he himself has voted a number of times to impose penalties on other teams. He signed the contract so he has to live by its terms.

  7. You most certainly are not in the minority as everybody seems to be calling for more pounds of flesh from Sterling, but the rules for forcing him to sell are far from definitive. The league will have to go through some fancy legal contortions to force him out. As strange as it may seem the NBA does not have clear cut rules regarding stripping someone of ownership for expressing their personal opinions in the privacy of their own living room. Weird.

    • Marner says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if they have some sort of moral turpitude clause in their contract. They certainly do for players.

    • Marner says:

      Anyway, I haven’t paid a whole lot of attention to the story. It doesn’t seem like there any good people on any side of it.

      Besides, the NFL draft starts next week, so we can get back to a real sport. 🙂

  8. Let’s say a person is alone in their home and perhaps after a few drinks starts ruminating, talking to himself and says what Sterling said. A busybody neighbor seruptitiosly sticks a microphone in the window, records him and posts it on the internet. Would the ramifications that Sterling faces still be fair?

    Basically, I think people should relax the fuck out and mind their own business. A person’s private opinions, however onerous, expressed privately in their own home should be the very least of our concerns.

    And good Christ, believe me when I say I hate to be with Neo on this one, but I suppose it’s in bad taste to notice that black personalities get to say much more inflammatory things about honkies publicly with nary a peep from the culture police?

    • Marner says:

      The latest I read was that Sterling was recorded with his full knowledge and consent.

      • Even if that’s true it was released without his consent. He did not put this out for consideration in the marketplace of ideas and opinions. If he had, I wouldn’t have nearly as much of a problem with the whole situation, although there would still be the issue of societies glaring double standard. Doesn’t that bother you at all?

      • And what about the hypothetical I laid out in a previous post?

      • Marner says:

        I don’t know. Like I said, I haven’t given it much thought.

  9. surreptitiously, damn scotch!
