While I hope the +Golden State Warriors do well in the playoffs and make it to the finals, I also feel for the +Los Angeles Clippers, as well. Like just about every other team in the +National Basketball Association, the heaviest proportion of the Clippers’ players are African American, and so the comments by Sterling make their play-off time that much more difficult as it provides them with an unneeded distraction.Besides being a distraction, it’s really goes beyond offensive. They’re insensitive and this is the worst representation of the NBA. I hope the NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and the commission board of the NBA will get to the bottom of what happened as soon as possible. There needs to be a message sent throughout the league that this type of language is not permissible.
However, what has me concerned is that there’s been some figures who’ve backed Bundy, have also declared their intention to bring women and children as human shields. This reminds me exactly of the type of extremism that we purportedly tried to fight off in the Middle East, with only some temporary success. Still, it makes me sick to hear of Americans, specifically those from the right-wing, championing this. This is not principled conservatism, this is just outright insanity. To think that this is mainstream is even more sickening to me.
It should be time for the American public to rise up and call out the right for continually calling for violence. It’s not the American way, and to say that Democracy is Socialism, and that “Americanism” is dictatorship, bullshit! This is way we need to shut down the funding to +The Tea Party, and end their reign of violent “credibility”.

Anyhow this is my newest gig thus far.
It’s as +Barack Obama‘s said, we’re going forward and we’re not going back to anything that was remotely disfunctional. It’s time to head this off, and make it clear as a nation that going backward is not an option!
