Donald Sterling: Set Up on Shakedown Street
A growing trend in our society is adventuresses setting up rich men for public shamings over political correctness as part of their career advancement strategies. It`s become regular thing in Silicon Valley. Similarly, here`s some of the transcript of the (presumably illegally recorded) phone call between billionaire Donald Sterling and his very expensive mistress V Stiviano (who, judging from her looks, might be the same person as that 13-year-old in Subic Bay whom Tim Pawlenty rescued from her pimp). The gold-diggeress plays the perfect interviewer luring her sugar-daddy on to his destruction.
DS: It`s the world! You go to Israel, the blacks are just treated like dogs.
V: So do you have to treat them like that too?
DS: The white Jews, there`s white Jews and black Jews, do you understand?
V: And are the black Jews less than the white Jews?
DS: A hundred percent, fifty, a hundred percent.
V: And is that right?
DS: It isn`t a question—we don`t evaluate what`s right and wrong, we live in a society. We live in a culture. We have to live within that culture.
V: But shouldn`t we take a stand for what`s wrong? And be the change and the difference?
DS: I don`t want to change the culture, because I can`t. It`s too big and too [unknown].
V: But you can change yourself.
DS: I don`t want to change. If my girl can`t do what I want, I don`t want the girl. I`ll find a girl that will do what I want! Believe me. I thought you were that girl—because I tried to do what you want. But you`re not that girl. …
V: It`s like saying, “Let`s just persecute and kill all of the Jews.”
DS: Oh, it`s the same thing, right?
V: Isn`t it wrong? Wasn`t it wrong then? With the Holocaust? And you`re Jewish, you understand discrimination.
DS: You`re a mental case, you`re really a mental case. The Holocaust, we`re comparing with—
V: Racism! Discrimination.
DS: There`s no racism here. If you don`t want to be… walking… into a basketball game with a certain… person, is that racism?
Well played, V. Katie Couric couldn`t have done it better. You`ve studied well.
