NBA Bans Sterling, And Some Conservatives Need A Lesson In Free Speech, Again

Conservatives love free enterprise and loathe (what they call) big government. But every once in a while (okay, quite often actually) an issue arises where it’s unclear if conservatives hold a consistent viewpoint when it comes to what is or isn’t acceptable or legal in the private sector vs. the public sector. And quite often this creates confusion as to what is or isn’t protected free speech. Take for instance today’s announcement from the NBA that Clippers owner Donald Sterling is banned for life for racist comments that were recorded in private.
