The New Thought Police
Posted by madjillmom on April 29, 2014
A 80 year-old NBA franchise owner, Donald Sterling, tells his young mistress (with 3 different aliases) some awful racist things during a phone conversation that was probably illegally taped. The man has a history of racism that evidently has been well known. This same man was to receive a NAACP Lifetime Achievement Award even with this known history. Evidently, you can buy an NAACP award. What this man told his “sweet young thing” was reprehensible. So now the NBA is suspending him for life, fining him $2.5 million, and is trying to force him to sell his franchise. The man is most certainly a racist. But he hasn’t broken the law in regard to his NBA franchise. Is Charles Barkley now calling for an all-black NBA?
About a month ago, gay rights groups ran the CEO of Mozilla out of town and out of his job for giving a contribution to a group supporting traditional marriage. This man did nothing illegal, but evidently he couldn’t be left alone to run a company.
College campuses all over the nation scheme to make it hard for those with conservative thoughts to participate in the debate. College fees won’t fund conservative speakers, conservative newspapers are stolen and confiscated, conservative speakers are sent away or heckled. Rutgers is trying to push Condoleeza Rice out. Brandeis un-invited Hirsi Ali because of complaints about her stand on Islam.
The IRS decides after signals from Obama about the Citizens United Supreme Court decision that conservative tea-party groups are to suffer at the hands of a politicized behemoth government agency.
The thought police are here.
