    EDIT: What you seem to support is that only "politically correct" speech is protected.
    *sigh*
    People are welcome to say virtually anything they want, IF they are willing to accept the consequences.

    Your EDIT: Where did I say that?
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    The statement is nuts, and you showed a level of intellectual dishonesty or pure ignorance by jumping in in its defense and adding to the idiocy of the original statement with your bit about free association.
    It's all over the forum here. The whole legal defense of the Boy Scouts in banning gay scoutmasters was based on that concept.

    If a businessman is deprived of the right to discriminate against others for some choices or actions they take, can he long expect that he will be allowed to fire an employee who does not perform his job well.

    So it's OK to make blanket statements about "the left" but not about "the right." And I'm the hypocrite....OK. Maybe in your twisted imagination.

    You were saying it had no effect on the value of a franchise. Inasmuch as it affects their ability to compete in their market, it does.

    And I will bet money on the fact that if there are any fans in the town, they will go to a game, in spite of their feelings for Sterling.

    Just like when the media tried to turn people against Ed Snider, the owner of the Flyers, a few years back when his conservative politics were on parade. It ended up not working. Six years later, his franchise is worth more than ever, and you can go to a Flyers game and see a parking lot filled with Obama stickers. Sports fans, real ones anyway, don't give a **** in the end about politics.

    Verbalizing it is never to the detriment of others. Acting might be.

    You have the right and should have the right to express or verbalize any opinion even if offensive.

    Of course others have the right to stop listening to you associating with you or whatever.
