Bill Kristol on Donald Sterling
It’s often said of pundits that a broken clock is at least correct twice a day, but damn, everything this guy says is just wrong-wrong-wrong.
Bill Kristol defends NBA owner: Don’t ‘go hysterical over two or three’ racist comments
By David Edwards
Conservative pundit Bill Kristol on Sunday urged people to judge NBA team owner Don Sterling by his “deeds,” and not to “go hysterical over two or three sentences” where he tells his girlfriend to stay away from black men.
Kristol admitted that Sterling was “bigoted and foolish,” but accused his detractors going “hysterical” over a few sentences.
“I’m a little hesitant to… everyone goes hysterical over two or three sentences, but lets look at the actual deeds of people,” he said. “If people discriminate, it’s against the law, they should be punished.”
“If they say stupid things, private organizations can deal with it — private businesses can fire, I suppose, if they say those things.”
