The End Of The Line On The Highway To Hell

14 May 2014 @ 20:28

Over at Protein Wisdom, Jeff Goldstein puts the whole Sterling situation in it’s proper perspective.

I strongly urge you to read the whole of his analysis and commentary because it is dead solid perfect — one of his best.

A few highlights:

…this entire sanctimonious wilding by the braying racialist mob pretending to be so terribly upset by a racist owner whose checks they’ve cashed and whose team they’ve continued to follow and support, despite earlier instances suggestive of Sterling’s racialist proclivities, is not only hypocritical, but from a constitutional standpoint is quite dangerous.

If political correctness — and one’s failure to follow it while engaging in what he believed to be private conversation — can lead to what is essentially the theft of property disguised as moral outrage, then it won’t be long before we’re determining legitimacy of ownership by way of second hand testimony, and then thought crimes extrapolated by religious or policy positions, be it on same-sex marriage or some other issue championed by some vocal grievance group looking to be appeased by a risk-averse industry.

And…

The idea of free speech and “tolerance” embraced at our founding was to protect unpopular speech, not to institutionalize government or temporary-societally approved speech.  This, however, goes even further, and ties such a complete inversion of the idea of tolerance to a measure of inequality before the law:  the NBA is attempting to deprive Sterling of his private property for speech that he made in private, in essence, claiming the moral authority to steal from him because they had (at least initially) public opinion on their side, and were fearful of blowback from the race-hustlers who are every bit as racialist and even racists in their speech, much of public, as was Sterling.

This is not a case about race.  It’s a case about private property rights and this dangerous move to assert that property can be taken simply because you happen to be unpopular for holding a specific belief.  With Sterling, it’s easy to demonize him.  It proved much harder to do so with Chic-fil-A and Hobby Lobby, but the attempt was certainly there.

The comments of this fool, Sterling, are not the issue, nor are they important.

What we are seeing here is Democracy in action and — as many of us knew it would be — it’s damn ugly, with not a single redeeming quality.  It is putrid, vile, filthy, repulsive, noxious, nauseating, repugnant, loathsome, nefarious, wretched, and depraved.

The Left, believing this is their moment, is pulling out all the stops.

Having been going down the road for a long time, we have finally arrived at our destination: Perdition.

How does it feel?

    Piss Christ, Elephant Dung Madonna, the photographic “art” of Robert Mapplethorpe, The Last Temptation of Christ, the collected works of Larry Flint…all things many people found very offensive and wanted to ban, yet the Left lectured us about the importance of our First Amendment right to free expression and how it was most critical to fight the hardest to protect the most unpopular speech. Well, what the Hell happened to that whole deal? It’s almost as though they were full of shit from the very beginning.

    The fools at ESPN are the reason to cancel my satellite subscription when the contract expires in 3 months. I have my fill of AE, ESPN, HGTV, and the alphabet stations….Fox business channel will be the only channel I miss.
