So.

Now that lefty-loving billionaire (but recently registered Republican, so we should ignore that all his contributions went to leftwing politicians) 1%-er and Clipper’s owner Donald Sterling, who evidently has a long-time reputation for making racist comments, has become the latest poster-child for identity politics OUTRAGE!, do you think the NAACP, whose membership asserts itself as keenly aware of any and all potential racialist slights, will vanish any and all evidence of its erstwhile upcoming ceremony, in which it was set to grant Mr Sterling a Life Time achievement award for all his donations to the organization?

And take back the awards it’s given him in the past?

Or do they just rejigger the theme a bit and instead coax him to the stage and let Magic Johnson beat him with a bullwhip, now that the Klan is out of the bag, so to speak?

  1. heh. Human sacrifice to the god has always been a peculiar institution, so peculiar that the act had eventually earned a more or less decent eclipse to obscurity. If it must make a return, as it seems it must, one can only wonder why the Progressives haven’t made a virtue of the thing, deciding to feed the starving polar bears for instance, thus in the old aphorism, efficiently killing two birds with the one stone?

  2. America’s professional sports for example this “National Basketball Association,” they teem with tawdriness and trashiness and thuggery and we only know a very small fraction of it.

  3. BURN HIM!!! BURN THE WITCH!!!

  4. It’s amazing. Black rappers spend their lives cursing whites and those in authority–politicians, cops, business owners–and then get livid when they realize the feeling is mutual.

  5. I like this piece by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar better than the CBS news piece linked. That said this whole thing has both “look squirrel” to take the LIV’s eyes off Obama’s failings and as a piece to keep “white racist” in the news.

  6. Feh. I remember when he was Lew Alcindor, before he became a rug merchant.

  7. And I remember Cassius Clay when he first started boxing.

    I just thought his take was good.

  8. Power lost. ‘Nuff said (from a D.C. local).

  9. Oh it is good, Geoff. I’m just in a foul mood.

    My apologies.

  10. No prob. I’m that way to many days lately.

  11. So, I’ve been wondering since this tale of woe first broke what the economic expectations are when ‘forced sale’ of property are entailed? Does a scramble to obtain a valuable property at a discount when that property is suddenly placed on the market actually result in higher bids from multiple competing interests and as a result a higher price than may have been expected under a voluntary or ordinary sale, or does the contrary take place, such that fewer bids are seen and therefore the promise to the greedy is fulfilled?

  12. Poor old guy, 81 years old and he spoke up rather than be labeled a coward by Eric Holder.

  13. There is speculation in the blogosphere that teh sluttish Ms. V has a covert deal with Magic Johnson to help him force the sale of the Clippers so that he may buy it. I think this is crap and is merely blackmail from the slut for who knows what reason.

    If I were Jerry Sterling I would shutter the team for the rest of the season and eat the losses, let the players sulk around with nothing to do but lose gate money and play-off respect. In short, I’d be a right pain in the ass for the league. “You don’t want me? I don’t need you” says the billionaire octogenarian.

    Plus Mark Cuban!! is weighing in? When was that douchbag’s opinion worthy of respect?

  14. NBA banned Sterling for life.

  15. that is very creepy to get ass-raped by a monopolistic hyper-fascist thug group like the NBA for stuff you said in private

    I seen Basketball Wives once in a hotel

    these people are trash with absolutely no room to judge nobody else

  16. “I just thought his take was good.”

    I hated it.

    Jabbar started by telling us: “Moral outrage is exhausting. And dangerous. The whole country has gotten a severe case of carpal tunnel syndrome from the newest popular sport of Extreme Finger Wagging”

    Which was good. About sums it up.

    Then the dude declares Jihad with: “. In our quest for social justice, we shouldn’t lose sight that racism is the true enemy.”

    Followed by: “if we’re all going to be outraged, let’s be outraged that we weren’t more outraged when his racism was first evident. ”

    And finished off with (bold mine): “Instead of being content to punish Sterling and go back to sleep, we need to be inspired to vigilantly seek out, expose, and eliminate racism at its first signs.

    Guard your thoughts well comrade, lest a reasonable man see micro aggression staining your soul.

  17. NBA banned Sterling for life

    So, what is that like for 6 months? He got off too easy.

  18. That whole “post-racial Presidency” thing isn’t really working out, is it?

  19. Greetings:

    Due to a couple of bits of personal history, my favorite aspect of the current “Two Minutes of Hate” has to be the profundity with which Kareem Adbul Jabbar’s assessment of the situation is being greeted. Now historically, I grew up in the Bronx of the ’50s and ’60s and basketball was the preferred way to misspend my youth. Additionally, my father sent me off to a Jesuit university to see what those folks could add to the development of my intellect and character both of which will be involved in what follows.

    The then Lew Alcindor was a remarkable basketball player but, given his talent and ability, a somewhat beat personality, given to petulance and an assortment of cheap-shots, a stain which his years in the NCAA and the NBA did little to ameliorate. So, when he surfaced, in his still current Islamic incarnation, as the go-to guy for the Sterling situation’s explication, my inner Jesuit awoke and in one of those measured lower-octave tones those folks were so fond of mentioned, “You know, those Muslimaniacs have a bit of a list of types of people that they don’t much care for, to include, kuffars, Jews (like Mr. Sterling ???), Christians, pagans, Buddhists, women, the sexually dysfunctional, and of course, their takfiri brothers in that faith.” So why, given the inherent intelligence of media mavens of all or any genders, all this attention on the Jabbar jabber ???

    I mean really! This is the guy I supposed to see as the voice of reason in this week’s episode of “Get Whitey”.

    free speech not for you "racists"

  21. lay down with fascist NBA trash wake up with fees

  22. Mark Levin Fisked Lew Alcindor Monday evening and did a great job of it.

    While some parts of Alcindor’s remarks may, indeed, be reasonable, the fact that he is a Mohammedin makes every word of anything he writes or speaks suspect [taqiyya anyone?] and, therefore, not worthy of any serious consideration.

  23. Additionally…

    When we provide any Muslim with legitimacy specifically, we are providing Islam with legitimacy.

    That’s a narrative we should not buy into because everything about Islam is Evil. It is ideological cult that is Totalitarian in all aspects of it’s system of ideas. Also, it denies Free Will.

  24. someone should ask lew about iran hanging fags.

  25. jsjbst, 11B40, and Bob Belvedere,

    I do agree with the perfidy of proclaimed Muslims when speaking to infidels. That said, what he stated, being spread far and wide, can and should be held in front of all the race baiting leftists and they be asked if they agree with it or not and why or why not. Also he can now be questioned about what he defines as racism and why.

    I see this as a break, apparent if not actual, with the usual race narrative and one which can be used against it. If he shows himself to be a liar so be it, that being on his head publicly.

    Also, it denies Free Will.

    It denies Free Will to humans. All of creation is nothing but, and exists only as, the moment to moment will of Allah.

  26. >Also he can now be questioned about what he defines as racism and why.<

    theoretically true but ain't going happen. this about a black and his white cronies taking away another person's property. see also gm/chrysler.

  27. Let me take y’all back to 1973 and 1977 and the Hanafi murders and the Hanafi siege. Interesting times, the olden days.

  28. That whole “post-racial Presidency” thing isn’t really working out, is it?

    It isn’t? You sure about that?

    wheels within wheels

  29. the failshit US government losers what couldn’t launch a fucking website in 2014 are probably not to be credited with wheels in wheels type stuff

    they’re just regular old fascists

    you know

    like Hitler

  30. This is political not administrative. The reason the government is failshit is that it’s full of political calculators instead of administrators.

    And Hitler had Europe spinning like a record baby. Right up until the invasion of Poland.

  31. “Open up your lovin’ arms – watch out! Here I come!” said Hitler, much to everyone’s amusement.

  32. Herr Quisling and the Maginot Line in particular.

  33. GeoffB wrote: I see this as a break, apparent if not actual, with the usual race narrative and one which can be used against it. If he shows himself to be a liar so be it, that being on his head publicly.

    Damn good argument for an exception to my rule. Will contemplate.

  34. OT, a BFD.. Homeland Security®™© says “Stop using Internet Explorer!”.

    Seems hackers can take over and control your computer if you visit certain websites.

    No mention of healthcare dot gov, but if you’ve visited that, you’re pretty much enslaved already.

  35. Another OT.

    EPA chief Gina McCarthy intervened to halt to internal inquiry
    [...]
    He said the homeland security office, however, is a “non-statutory creation of EPA” reporting to the administrator that lacks investigative and law enforcement authority.

    Why has the EPA self-created a “Homeland Security Office” that reports directly to the head of the EPA? If it “lacks investigative and law enforcement authority” then what does it do?

  36. I speculate geoffb with the ordinary bureaucratic jargon: the Homeland Security Office of the EPA “liaises” and “coordinates” with the EPA Office of the Homeland Security Dept.

  37. Why — other than and aside from being a simple drooling moron — would IWonPenPhone flirt with Chaos?

    Well, Chaos has an ample breast, offers glimpses of an immaculately shaven nether region, coos soft praises in his ear and otherwise drives his drives to the fierce urgency of the ecstasy of now. Who, being tyrannical by nature, wouldn’t flirt with Chaos under such conditions?

  38. “…the Maginot Line in particular.”

    Okay.

    Hit it, George.

  39. OTOH:

    “When a man is lying in a shell hole, if he just stays there all day, a German will get to him eventually. The hell with that idea. The hell with taking it. My men don’t dig foxholes. I don’t want them to. Foxholes only slow up an offensive. Keep moving. And don’t give the enemy time to dig one either.”

  40. The neo-Puritans want a General with a Long Skirt [for to hide her bulging ankles] and a Short [dossier] Jacket.

  41. Right up until the invasion of Poland.

    And for sometime thereafter. Germans on the Western front were outnumbered about 4 to 1 by the French, who for some reason decided not to attack even though they had in effect declared war on Germany.

  42. I mean, the Saar Offensive was just a token attack, and accomplished approximately zilch.

    Britain and France were trying to un-win the last war.

  43. And it’s deja vu all O! ver again.

  44. O! is working to overturn the results of every war since 1946.

  45. Flirting with KAOS? What, does Siegfried have a smokin’ hot granddaughter?

    TW: Sorryaboutthatchief

  46. heh, the phrase “O! is working” resembles a contradiction in terms when describing a parasite who has never worked a day in his life.

  47. Ya got me sdferr.

  48. “Previously unreleased internal Obama administration emails show that a coordinated effort was made in the days following the Benghazi terror attacks to portray the incident as “rooted in [an] Internet video, and not [in] a broader failure or policy.”

    [...]

    But the lie about Benghazi is actually the good news. The bad news is the ignorance it implies about our understanding of the entire direction of Obama’s foreign policy. There must be a shadow policy from the fact that a cover legend exists.

  49. One has to say, returning to the profoundly timely reemergence of the spectacular human sacrifice Sterling makes, what a godsend to the blessed ClownDisaster’s public relations operation, at the very moment His magnificence’s perfidious treason is exposed for all the world to see, if only the world would look and think, but which it cannot do while so enraptured with a public slaying.

  50. It’s hard for me to avoid the thought that while appearing to quail at the approach of a Gogira Wretchard is actually describing the return of nothing so little known as those oft’ rumored copybook headings.

  51. OTHC:

    Old time hockey, coach!

  52. That was your cue guins.

  53. So we have Kevin Johnson holding forth on human sacrifice Donald Sterling. Makes a kind of sense after that ealier human sacrifice of Gerald Walpin, don’t it?

    Guilty as sin, free as a bird! It’s a coolness rash! Quick! Catch it!
