    What Nixon revealed was illegal. Being a racist is sad but as of yet not illegal. see the difference?

    I think you are entirely missing the whole point here that what we do in private, so long as we are not violating the rights of anybody else, is our own business and should be nobody else's business. If you disagree with that, make your best case for how I am wrong about that. But don't be a jerk and mischaracterize what I have said or accuse me of saying what I did not say.
    Good luck, that is exactly what you can count on with libs in here.

    With some of them for sure. And we should call them on it every single time they do it and make them prove their statements. They should not be allowed to dishonestly twist the discussion into something they can attack. But in some cases, we are dealing with the immature, the chronically stupid and/or hateful, and people that just aren't too bright. They honestly can't or won't distinguish between illegal acts or compromising the rights of others and somebody just expressing an unpopular opinion that violates nobody's rights.

    Both examples speak to what were expected to be private conversations that brought down men who thought their power was unimpeachable.
    The similarities out weigh the differences.

    She was absolutely the victim of a a man in power who felt he had the right to tell her not to associate with black men in public because she was on his payroll. You called the victim of racism a racist. Nothing new . I have seen republicons do this exact same thing dozens of times, calling anyone who reports racism , a racist, in an attempt to defuse the gravity of the charge.
    It doesn't work and I will not let you get away with it.
    Not this time ...not ever.

    You clearly do not comprehend the meaning of the word.

    World English Dictionary
    fascism (ˈfæʃɪzəm)

    — n
    1. any ideology or movement inspired by Italian Fascism, such as German National Socialism; any right-wing nationalist ideology or movement with an authoritarian and hierarchical structure that is fundamentally opposed to democracy and liberalism
    2. any ideology, movement, programme, tendency, etc, that may be characterized as right-wing, chauvinist, authoritarian, etc
    3. prejudice in relation to the subject specified: body fascism
    You are in the wrong political wing to be throwing around the word fascist.

    "Social fascism was a theory supported by the Communist International (Comintern) during the early 1930s,
    which held that social democracy was a variant of fascism because, in addition to a shared corporatist economic model, it stood in the way of a complete and final transition to communism. At the time, the leaders of the Comintern, such as Joseph Stalin and Rajani Palme Dutt, argued that capitalist society had entered the "Third Period" in which a working class revolution was imminent, but could be prevented by social democrats and other "fascist" forces. The term "social fascist" was used pejoratively to describe social democratic parties, anti-Comintern and progressive socialist parties, and dissenters within Comintern affiliates throughout the interwar period."

    Exactly as you have used the term pejoratively and erroneously to attack anyone who disagrees with your racism biased view.
    You have merely demonstrated a history of the erroneous misuse of the word.

    She wasn't on his payroll. She was reported to be his mistress lavished with hugely expensive gifts which is why Sterling's wife is suing her. She has denied a bf/gf relationship and claims she had a professional relationship as his archivist--as a contractor, not an employee--which came as a huge surprise to all of Sterling's friends, all of her friends, and Sterling's wife who had a very different perception about that.

    For Sterling to be subject to and suffering consequences for breaking NBA rules is one thing. That is between him and the NBA. But we all should be leery of this new thing of destroying people by intercepting and recording private conversations that are intended to be private and do not involve violation of anybody's rights or illegal activities. Next time it could be you. And that angry outburst intended for the ears of a trusted friend only and that might or might not have been the whole story could be used to ruin you, get you fired, destroy a relationship, etc.
