Money for nothing

30 04 2014

While my brain continues to disintegrate, I’ma just stealin’ other people’s stuff to post.

Thus, Roy Edroso at alicublog, on Donald Sterling, Brendan Eich, and free speech for rich folk:

All of the principals in these dramas, protagonists and antagonists, are rich fucks, and their decisions have much more to do with perceived shareholder value than with the U.S. Constitution. The rich fucks fucked the rich fucks, and then ran to hang The Left.

I see some of you rightwing guys are sore about it. Well, go ahead, be sore, life’s tough all over. But don’t insult my intelligence by saying it’s because you care deeply about civil rights, or you’d have been weeping over the scoutmaster whose troop got dumped because he’s gay, too, and I sure didn’t see that happening.  You’re just sore about these guys because the charge on their warrants was bigotry, and instead of the rich fucks laughing and saying, oh come on, how could anyone take such a thing seriously, can’t you charge ’em with moral turpitude or something — instead the rich fucks in charge said yes indeed, it was indeed serious, and pitched them out.

I don’t care about the alleged victims one way or the other. They’re rich and can afford to buy their own sympathy, or contempt if that’s what they go for. Their speech will always be free, indeed worth more than mine because they can put a million bucks behind every word.

Indeed.
