Add one more name to the Hypocrites Hall of Fame. Billionaire Donald Sterling who owns the L.A. Clippers basketball team. Donald Sterling, according to a story in National Review, is a Democrat with a long history of bigoted behavior. Sterling made the news recently when a racist filled rant of his was leaked to the press. That didn't stop the leftist media from trying to pin the label on a Republican from Texas. The liberals attempted to blame the racist remarks to a different person with the same name who was a Republican without bothering to check the facts.
As an interesting side note, the National Review points out that Democrat Donald Sterling was scheduled to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the NAACP, of all people. Just wondering how that will turn out.
Liberals are so used to covering up for Democrats that they will habitually try to blame a Republican or a Tea Party member or an NRA member for some crime before they check the facts and find they're wrong. Then they suddenly get all quiet on it and never admit the mistake. When James Holmes opened fire in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado killing 12 people and wounding 58 more, the news media picked a different person with the same name who happened to be a member of the Tea Party and said he did it. And recently in Nevada, when embattled cattle rancher Cliven Bundy gave a lengthy statement to the New York Times on how he felt about Mexicans and Black people, the NY Times edited his remarks and printed an excerpt that created the impression Bundy was a racist. The full version of the remarks is available on YouTube but Infowars.com made a transcript that clearly shows Cliven Bundy was anything but a racist. Here is the complete transscript.
Bundy’s full comments are reprinted below, with the parts not printed by the New York Times and other media outlets highlighted in bold.…” and so what I’ve testified to ya’, I was in the WATTS riot, I seen the beginning fire and I seen the last fire. What I seen is civil disturbance. People are not happy, people is thinking they did not have their freedom; they didn’t have these things, and they didn’t have them.We’ve progressed quite a bit from that day until now, and sure don’t want to go back; we sure don’t want the colored people to go back to that point; we sure don’t want the Mexican people to go back to that point; and we can make a difference right now by taking care of some of these bureaucracies, and do it in a peaceful way.
Let me tell.. talk to you about the Mexicans, and these are just things I know about the Negroes. I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro.
When I go, went, go to Las Vegas, North Las Vegas; and I would see these little government houses, and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids…. and there was 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 the kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for the young girls to do.
And because they were basically on government subsidy – so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never, they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered are they were better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things? Or are they better off under government subsidy?
You know they didn’t get more freedom, uh they got less freedom – they got less family life, and their happiness -you could see it in their faces- they were not happy sitting on that concrete sidewalk. Down there they was probably growing their turnips – so that’s all government, that’s not freedom.
Now, let me talk about the Spanish people. You know I understand that they come over here against our constitution and cross our borders. But they’re here and they’re people – and I’ve worked side-by-side a lot of them.
Don’t tell me they don’t work, and don’t tell me they don’t pay taxes. And don’t tell me they don’t have better family structure than most of us white people. When you see those Mexican families, they’re together, they picnic together, they’re spending their time together, and I’ll tell you in my way of thinking they’re awful nice people.And we need to have those people join us and be with us…. not, not come to our party.
The parts of Cliven Bundy's remarks that The New York Times left out changes the entire meaning of this man's words. Of course, all the other hypocrite liberal news media copied what the Times said. But some prominent Black people agree that Cliven Bundy is no racist. Blogger and musician Lloyd Marcus from Deltona, Florida who is known for his Pop, Adult Contemporary and Smooth Jazz writes on his web site:

This Black Does Not Think Bundy is Racist
Pick a card, any card. Racist. Sexist. Homophobic. We all knew it was only a matter of time before Democrats/Liberals played one or more of their Big Three Cards to silence, intimidate and crush opposition to their latest power grab/tyrannical attack on our freedom.
With a majority of Americans taking rancher Cliven Bundy's side against Obama's BLM thugs, Democrat Harry Reid concluded that it was time to play their old faithful, tried and true race card. As Gomer Pyle use to say, “Surprise. Surprise.” We knew it was coming.
This is how the Left rolls. When America rallied around Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson after being targeted for destruction by the Left, the Left played a twofer on Robertson; accusing him of being homophobic and a racist.
Thank God it did not work. Coming to Robertson's defense, conservatives played their ultimate trump card which overruled all the Left's lies, distortions and evil intent. Our ultimate weapon is the Truth & Righteousness Card. I believe boldly and confidently standing up for truth and righteousness always defeats evil. And make no mistake about it, the Democrat, liberal, progressive and socialist agenda is evil.
The Left's vision for America is counter to the Will of God and the human spirit. Their anti-God agenda places man on the throne as the ultimate power, able to fix everything – the environment, income inequality, equal outcomes and everything under the sun via legislation. The Bible says, “The fool says in his heart that there is no God.”
Not to wander too far off topic, back to the Left's nonsensical allegation that Bundy is a racist.
Any decent fair-minded human being would understand that Bundy was condemning the slavery of government dependency in his comments regarding Negros. The elderly gentleman is a rancher who is not media savvy, nor is he schooled in the nuances of political correctness. bit.ly/PABbJF
The Left are not decent human beings. Their bully minions went on high alert viciously in pursuit of a “gotcha” comment to squelch Bundy's proven leadership and ability to inspire millions to push back against the Obama regime.
Prominent conservatives running for the tall grass to get away from or running to microphones to denounce Bundy is testimony to their fear of the Left's high tech lynching machine. It truly sickens me.
I hate allowing jive turkey Leftist bullies to push us around. Rather than conservatives fighting back, far too many cower in fear and allow the Left to proclaim what is considered racist. It reminds me of the school yard when I was a kid. The only way to defeat bullies or at least gain their respect was to punch them in the face.
Before a Leftist's hack accuses me of advocating violence, I am talking about “politically” delivering a hard left hook to the Left's jaw by standing up for Bundy.
Mr. Bundy spoke the truth about cradle-to-grave government dependency wrecking havoc in the black community. We all know this. But any white person who dares to acknowledge the huge elephant in the black community's living room is vilified and branded a racist; Bill O'Reilly, Congressman Paul Ryan and now Cliven Bundy. Meanwhile, black families continue to suffer and vote monolithic for Democrats who vow to fix their problems, but never do.
Black relatives of mine (several died young) lived wasted lives because they were addicted to government dependency. They were Democrat party slaves, enslaved with chains far more powerful than steel; mental and emotional slavery. My relatives were robbed of the self-esteem, pride and joy of individual achievement and earning ones way.
Democrats and liberal media I trump your race card against Bundy with my Truth and Righteousness card. You lose! Go peddle your despicable crap elsewhere.
I am a black conservative whose admiration and respect for Cliven Bundy remains unwavering. Mr. Bundy, myself along with millions of good decent Americans have your back. Hang in there my patriot brother. God bless.
