Reknowned Racist Donald Sterling is Actually a Republican

Over the past week, I have received several messages taunting me over Donald Sterling, the well-known racist and owner of the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers.  Readers want to know why I don’t point out this racist “Democrat.”  There is no quetion that Sterling’s comments were racist so let’s start with the recording that started it all:

I did not post this video on this website before because I don’t consider Donald Sterling to be a political figure and that is the primary focus of this blog.  However, in response to the Cliven Bundy facepalm, the Conservative Media put Sterling on my radar.

The headlines started coming out on some major right wing political websites and blogs:

“LA Clippers Owner Donald Sterling is a Racist Democrat”– The Tea Party News Network

“Report: Clippers Owner Caught In Racist Rant Is A Democratic Donor” – Fox Nation

“Donald Sterling made donations to Dems” – Politico

“Media Ignoring Dem Donations of LA Clippers’ Owner, Allegedly Caught on Tape in Race-Based Rant” – NewsBusters

“NBA Sterling is a Democrat…” – The Drudge Report

“Race Hate Spewing Clippers Owner Is Democratic Donor” – The Daily Caller

Rush Limbaugh went off on a tirade about it on Monday saying, “This guy is a big Democrat…  The only reason he is in trouble right now is that he did not give enough money to Obama.”  He then went on to rant about Sterling being “a typical Hollywood Democrat” and a litany of other textbook Limbaugh hyperbole.

So NOW they have my attention.  Apparently it’s very important that these websites point out a Democratic racist to help soothe the burning of the wound caused by their frantic embrace of Cliven Bundy.  The world must know that this Democrat is a racist too!

Except they got one thing wrong…  Donald Sterling is a registered Republican in Los Angeles County and has been for over 18 years.

On Sunday, Michael Hiltzik, columnist for the Los Angeles Times, tweeted that local voter records show Sterling to be a registered Republican since 1998. Mother Jones followed up and did a search of the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder’s website for Sterling’s name, date of birth, and address confirmed that he’s registered as a Republican.

Again, the Conservative Media got it wrong.  They jumped at a chance to paint a “Democrat” as a racist just because Sterling made a small contribution to Grey Davis and one to Bill Bradley over 15 years ago.  They thought that they could just shout out “Democrat!” and no one would check them on that.  The rest of the media was prepared to not even bother with checking his political party affiliation but, because of the noise they made, the facts came out.  Well known racist Donald Sterling is indeed a Republican.

Keep your mouth shut, Matt Drudge and Rush Limbaugh, and you’ll stop helping me point out that Republicans are Racists.

Conservative Hero and Welfare Queen Cliven Bundy Speaks Out on Race

ImageOver the past few weeks, Fox News and it’s Conservative Media clones have been madly pushing their anti-government agenda by using Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy as their new hero.  Conservative Media heroes like Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity have spearheaded their attacks of “Big Government” by trying to fan the flames of this stand-off between the rancher and the Federal Government…  And many Republican elected officials have rushed to show support of Bundy.

Registered Republican Cliven Bundy has been in a long fight with the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over grazing rights.  Many, many ranchers graze their herds on Federal lands and, in exchange, pay grazing fees to the United States Government.  Bundy, however, has refused to pay these fees and has continued to graze his herds on Federal land and has amassed over $1,000,000 in fees and fines.  He refuses to pay and continues to use taxpayer land to expand his own personal wealth.

Two weeks ago, this situation came to a head as Federal BLM agents moved in to seize Bundy’s cows as they were eating taxpayer grasses.  The conservative media rushed in and before you know it, hundreds of armed militia and private citizens hurried to the scene with assault weapons in hand.  These so-called Patriots then pointed their weapons at Federal Agents and began threatening open rebellion on television.  We all watched in disbelief as the BLM backed down due to concerns that agents and citizens would certainly be hurt or killed if they did not.

The Conservative Media exploded with this victory.  Cliven Bundy soon appeared on every major news program on Fox News, every major Republican radio show including the fringe show of ultra-right wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.  all of them hailed Bundy as the new hero of the American Right.  Bundy began holding regular news conferences and the one he held this week finally exposed him.

Here are his statements as reported by the New York Times:

“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids—and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch—they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.

“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”

Here are his statements on video:

Time and time again, these “heroes” get exposed for who they really are.  Bundy is trying to complain about African-Americans sucking from the public teet while he uses public land for his own profit.  He doesn’t even see the irony…  Nor does he see the blatant racism.

Congratulations, Conservative Media.  You gave this guy a nationwide microphone and now he has used it to show once again that Republicans are Racists.

Fox’s Greg Gutfeld: “Catholics Write Letters And Muslims Stab You With Letter Openers”

From the February 27 edition of Fox News’ The Five

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Usually, watching Fox News’ The Five gives me a headache but when the brunette with the giant fish mouth shows up, I’m all in! This time, after fish-face finishes her anti-muslim rant, it is Greg Gutfeld that steps up to really cap off what is already a fairly offensive rant. Gutfield makes his bad joke and then follows up by encouraging genocide. All in all, this is a classy piece that highlights all the fun that can be had by radical fundamentalist Christians with a TV network.

Even though no one uses letter openers anymore, thanks to the invention of e-mail, this clip shows two things; Fox hosts are religious zealots and Republicans are racists.

Bolling to Waters: “Congresswoman, You Saw What Happened To Whitney Houston. Step Away From The Crack Pipe”

[“From the February 16 edition of Fox News’ Fox & Friends“]

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Eric Bolling is making his case for being the biggest jackass on Fox News. Here he goes again. After a discussion about Congresswoman Maxine Waters’ words yesterday, Bolling snaps off, “Congresswoman, You Saw What Happened To Whitney Houston. Step Away From The Crack Pipe.” Even his co-hosts knew he had just gone to far as is judged by their nervous laughter… But they still laughed.

Maxine Waters did make a partisan and energetic speech in front of supporters that said some antagonistic things about Speaker Boehner and his GOP playmates. This is very common. Just look at the Republican primary that has been boiling over the last few months. People say rhetorically charged things sometimes… But to react with this kind of statement goes beyond the pale and right into my wheelhouse… Good ol’ GOP racism.

Did Bolling use a white person that has died of an alleged drug overdose for his comparison? Nope. He used a black woman and he used crack. Both are racially charged dog whistles and Bolling knows it. Keep reminding everyone that black people are poor, socialist crackheads and that our President (and Maxine Waters) is… ahem … one of them.

At the end of this clip, thanks to the editors at Media Matters, Bolling does use the “I was kidding” defense after the show comes back from commercial. This is always step one in any Republican racist’s defense of a stupid comment and it is an empty and meaningless gesture. You cannot put this genie back in it’s bottle.

Once again, Eric Bolling and his giggling cronies at Fox & Friends are showing that Republicans are racists.

Eric Bolling on Fox News thinks Conservative Women are Hotter than Liberals

From the January 30 edition of Fox News’ The Five…

Vodpod videos no longer available.
So Eric Bolling is TV Trolling this conversation about a recent study that shows that less educated people tend to be conservatives and manages to derail the conversation by making one very important point: Conservative chicks are hotter than liberals.

First, any sane person knows that this is basically subjective but it’s Bolling’s examples that are sweet. He points out some of what he thinks are unattractive women like Oprah Winfrey, Joy Behar, Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg. Notice the two minority women he tosses in with the two overweight white ladies. He then points out his smokin’ hot conservatives… All are skinny, blonde bimbos who just happen to work at Fox News.

I usually stick to the blatant racism in these clips when I post and this one is subtle in that aspect. It does, however, show a trait that tends to go hand-in-hand with racism and helps expose that Republicans are Chauvinists too.

David Webb thinks the President should Call ME Out!

From the January 30 edition of Fox News’ America Live…

Vodpod videos no longer available.

That’s right.  That finger that Jan Brewer threw in the President’s face wasn’t racist (although I did point out that it was rude) and President Obama should call out the “Black Mafia” in the media that said it was!  Sweet!  As a white dude with a blog (media!) being called a part of the “Black Mafia” by an african-american is about the sweetest street cred that I can garner.

Governor Brewer’s finger may not have been involved in a hate crime but this doesn’t change the opinion that I share with my brothers in the “Black Mafia”…  We still believe that Republicans are racists.
