Donald Sterling Breaks Silence: ‘I Wish I’d Just Paid Her Off’

avatar

Donald Sterling, the Los Angeles Clippers owner banned from professional basketball games after being caught in a private racist rant, broke his silence after a weeklong media feeding frenzy, referencing girlfriend V. Stiviano when he told DuJour magazine “I wish I’d just paid her off.”

That was all DuJour was apparently able to glean from Sterling, who — perhaps facetiously — told the magazine he was limiting interviews to Barbara Walters and the NBA.

V. Stiviano, whose voice can also be heard on the tape, is widely believed to have set Sterling up. The Clippers owner’s new comment suggests he feels that theory holds a lot of weight.

A video report aired on CNN added context to Sterling’s defiant comment, noting that he is often contentious when challenged over other offensive or illegal actions.

“I’d be very surprised if he doesn’t make a big battle out of this,” said Douglas Bagby, a lawyer who once opposed Sterling in court.

V. Stiviano’s lawyer also denied that she was Sterling’s girlfriend — hardly a surprise at this point — and that she did not leak the recording.

Muslim Invasion: The Fuse Is Burning

Dr. Don Boys

Muslin Invasion: The Fuse is Burning! is an interesting, informative, and for the politically correct and infuriating read. Islam, Muslims, immigration, Jihad, Sharia, and the war against our civilization, culture, and creed is a present reality. Gutless public officials are selling us short either by complicity with the enemy or due to a doctrinaire commitment to idiotic tolerance ideology. Whatever the case, citizens must stand up against the invasion now before it is to late. The author suggests that the fuse is burning and the results will end in a complete upheaval of America and every free nation, unless we act now. Forget the lame stream media. Forget Obama. Common sense mandates, our very survival demands that we act NOW to keep America from going off the cliff; This book promises to be a life changing read.
