Media reports indicate that Donald Stirling has sold the LA Clippers for $2 billion – way above the $700 million bandied about when the NBA launched the crusade against him.
Now it appears that he is suing the organisation for $2 billion.
It might be unlikely that he will get anything like that amount, it doesn’t matter. Winning the case will be a huge blow for common sense and a clear victory over political correctness and the tyranny of the intolerant left.
It will also be a sharp reminder to pompous sports administrators that they do not get to play God and that private conversations are just that – private.
It is a sad day when we have to fear expressing our own opinions in our own homes.
Donald Stirling might still have the last laugh in this ridiculous saga.
Is this a sign that the pendulum is reaching the end of its swing towards intolerance of mainstream values, away from common sense and respect for individual rights?
For the future of Western society, let’s hope so.
