Should Shaq be fined 2.5 million dollars and banned from attending NBA games?
Slippery slope: Sure Sterling’s remarks are offensive as are many of our own when we gossip about people. We would never say publicly what we say in private, sad but true.
But there does seem to be degrees based upon the object of the offense. Today it’s a death sentence if you offend blacks and Muslims. It’s a felony if a republican offends democrats and a misdemeanor if a democrat offends republicans. By the way, it’s open season on Christians. It offensive if you don’t offend Christians!
What did Sterling’s ‘mistress’ (if I had said ‘ho’ that would be offensive but I didn’t) hope to gain from recording and releasing the private conversation. He was her ‘sugar daddy’? I’m not condoning what he said, just like I’m not condoning him having a mistress, just like I’m not condoning her selling her body or shamelessly sleeping with a married man for ‘mammon’.
Talk about biting the hand that feeds you, TMZ showed her being driven off in a Bentley he’d given her after the conversation was made public. Aren’t her actions just as repulsive as his?
Now take a look at that second headline. Doesn’t that give you a warm and fuzzy? The Feds wanting to scour Net, media for 'hate speech'. Can't you just see Eric Holder and Van Jones thumbing through pages of scoured messages, posts, and comments from the internet?
We’ve already given away our freedom of speech to a degree. What is freedom of speech if not the freedom to say offensive things? There’s no need to protect non-offensive speech.
