On this edition of The TGB Report I discuss the role of race in this country and how the words racists, bigot and similar phrases are used by the media and enemies of freedom to silence folks they disagree with. Case in point, Cliven Bundy.
When he started his stance with supporters two weeks ago against the Federal Government, taking over ranching land from his family and other ranchers, the argument was that he was a tax dodger and would not pay his grazing fees. Well that proved false so the NY Times interviewed him and then cherry picked his comments on Blacks and Hispanics in this country and labeled him a racist.
In another twist of racism, L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, was recorded by his girlfriend/escort making some truly reprehensible remarks on his thoughts on blacks.
But as bad as his remarks are they where made in a private setting and were just words. There has not been any type of findings where he actually took actions within the Clippers organization that would be considered abuse in the workplace.Â Even still, he is being punished with a lifetime ban from anything related to the NBA including visiting any Clippers facility as well as a $2.5 million fine by the NBA Commissioner. The NBA is also pushing owners to force him to sell his team. This is a very dangerous precedent as you are going to make it more common place to be fired for your thoughts and words if they do not line up with the majority of the public. Can you say thought crimes?
The TGB Report is a show about freedom and liberty. Focusing on the truth in political and economic news. Tom will not pull punches or compromise his core believes of classical liberalism in the model of Thomas Jefferson in his fight against government and corporate oppression of the American People.
