    I really have mixed emotions on this issue...What Sterling said was horrible and a truly racist statement but on the other hand what happened to the first amendment and freedom of speech especially in the privacy of his home that you on the left are always citing?

    The PC crowd doesnt believe in free speech.

    They believe in the same free speech the so-called "non-PC" crowd believes in: free to speak it, but not without serious repercussions. The only thing separating most people is what speech they think needs to be pressured out, boycotted, and railed against in the media.

    Trust me, all of you do it. You just think you're above it, when you're not.

    No, they can't

    They have to show cause in order to ban someone.

    They only believe in the freedom of speech that suits their agenda. They try to snuff out the free speech of those who disagree with them.

    I agree with you, it is a horrible and racist statement. But the first only applies to the government not restricting speech, not everyone else.

    They can ban a person. You said they could not. You have just admitted that they can... "they have to show cause". I win. You lose. Bye.
