Orly Taitz Argues What's Good for the Racist (Donald Sterling) is Good for the Bully (Shaq)

Shaquille O'Neal smiles on the Inside the NBA set after learning which lawyer is challenging him.

Rancho Santa Margarita lawyer/dentist/real estate saleslady/Eastern Blochead Orly Taitz has stuck her legal nose into the Donald Sterling controversy, firing off a "complaint" to the NBA that argues because Shaquille O'Neal "publicly bullied" a man with a disability, Shaq should be slapped with the same lifetime ban and $2.5 million fine as the Clippers owner.

Orly Taitz to Court: Either Allow Ban on Gay Wedding Cakes or Reinstate Duck Dynasty Star

Yes, it does harken back to the convoluted, jurisdiction-hopping, legally dubious courtroom funny papers Taitz filed in December, when she called on Colorado's courts to either overturn a judge's decision forcing a wedding cake baker to serve gay couples or force the A&E cable channel to reinstate a then-suspended Duck Dynasty reality show star.

Um ... yes ... wow indeed.

O'Neal, Utah Jazz rookie sensation Trey Burke and rapper Waka Flocka all used social media to mock Jahmel Binion, a 23-year-old in Warren, Michigan, who suffers from the rare genetic disorder ectodermal dysplasia that has left his face deformed.

Shaq had posted on Instagram (and has since removed) a photo of himself making a weird face next to a mug of Binion, who recently created the anti-bullying campaign Hug Don't Judge. O'Neal, Burke and Waka Flocka all apologized via Twitter, and O'Neal and Burke also phoned Binion directly. Binion says he accepted the apologies, although he also suggested that at least Waka Flocka do something even more publicly, such as contribute to Hug Don't Judge or the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias.

More punishment against O'Neal and Burke is warranted in light of the shitstorm caused by the racist, secretly recorded comments of Sterling, Taitz suggests in her letter of complaint to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and the NBA Board of Governors, which she posted on OrlyTaitzEsq.com. (She, of course, mentions in her complaint that she is seeking the Republican nomination for California attorney general, along with a link to her campaign site.)

"Petitioner provides Commissioner Silver and the Board of Governors with evidence showing minor owner of Sacramento Kings Shaquille O'Neil publicly demeaning, mocking and belittling a disabled African-American person Jahmel Binion. O'Neil was joined by Utah Jazz player Trey Burke, who engaged in similar bullying. Further, petitioner provides evidence of O'Neil engaging in bullying and mocking of an Asian athlete and making intolerant public racist statements about an Asian athlete Yao Ming," Taitz writes.

"Petitioner demands that Commissioner Silver and the Board of Governors engage in impartial, even handed and non discriminatory treatment and impose the same punishment for O'Neil and Burke, specifically ban for life from NBA, $2.5 million for each incident ($5 million from O'Neil for bullying both Binion and Ming) as well as forced sale of O'Neil's ownership rights/ share of Sacramento Kings."

Besides the fines and NBA bans of O'Neil ... I mean ... O'Neal and Burke, Taitz's complaint requests that each owner, coach and player in the league be sent a questionnaire asking "whether they subscribe to the same interpretation of the NBA contract, the same 'Silver' standard in that one can be banned for life, fined millions and forced to sell the team for making an inappropriate statement in a personal conversation."

Recipients are to be further asked if "they consent to be charged and fined under this new 'Silver' standard; or do they disagree with this interpretation and believe that the NBA contract does not allow for such harsh punishment and believe that a verbal reprimand and a demand for an apology represent a proper interpretation of the contract, in which case Sterling punishment should be reversed and reduced to an apology only and the same should be done in O'Neil and Burke cases."

Whew. Silver, Burke and O'Neil ... I mean ... O'Neal must be shaking in their sneaks. At least it's refreshing to see Taitz picking on African-Americans other than Barack Obama for a change.

Wow, what a website! You can all feel sorry for yourselves here! Never mind the law, or that America is still a Country of laws even though we hVe a President who completely ignores the "oath of office" to those laws.

But WTF, it's okay to ignore the laws and be a dictator, because he is a Black man. No matter that he is a. Full-blown Socialist. We only fought two world wars over Socialism, and lost tens of thousands in those two wars.

But WTF, it's all okay because our president is a black guy. Screw the rest of the population.

And #orangecounty CA law enforcement is filled with white male racist trash identical in stupidity to #donaldsterling. By the way, misogynist as well. You can tell - from the almost zero participation by female cops in criminal harassment - that the #donaldsterling male trash don't trust female cops to keep the "secret".

The dirty little secrets from Garden Grove/Anaheim that the whole world is going to find out about by the time I get through with shithole morally bankrupt County.

By the way, this message is for a certain OC city by the beach - instead of your white male trash cops asking me if i was planning to leave the Country the other day, you should look into the accounting practices of your police department. What I heard recently from one of your former auditors was shocking. Hopefully that doesn't ring a bell with other law enforcement agencies in OC lol.

I wonder how DA Tony Rackauckas' tan is coming along.

Orly Taitz IS BAT SHIT CRAZY. Let me count the ways - first off, she hides herself behind a shell corporation that has no directors and no members. Secondly, she has no vested interest in her complaint - other than the fact that she and Sterling have the same religious background. She does not represent the young man, who a DAY BEFORE received full-throated apologies, unlike Sterling who has yet to issue an apology for his words and actions. She calls herself a "civil rights" attorney but she is nothing more than a charlatan in a dress. She reminds me of "Zelig" - Woody Allen's movie. She is a chameleon that changes her story without covering her tracks. If she thinks that black and brown people are going to support her because she "fought for" the young man - BITCH, that ain't going to happen. There are too many things she has said against black people, against President Obama, against his wife and children. Let's see how she is going to handle it when all of the b.s. that she thought was scrubbed from her website comes back to haunt her. She very stupidly and uninformedly is promising to repeal this and prevent that which is not within the prevue of the AG office. Giving her the AG office is like putting Caligula back in power. 


Oh and by the way Orly, since we all know that you read this - Before It's News is not authentic news it's submitted news, as some of those dopey ass "new sources" that you claim has written on your behalf when everyone knows that YOU SUBMITTED THE PIECES. 


This bitch makes me sick.

Taitz, as usual "demands" action. Pretty funny for someone without a horse in this race and no trump card whatsoever.  Of course, relevancy, appropriateness and legal protocol -- or lack thereof -- has never stopped Taitz from filing ridiculous lawsuits without standing, at a huge cost to the Courts.  

She loves doing anything to get attention, and does it so predictably offensively!  In this case, why identify the disabled man by his race, except that racist Taitz thinks that's relevant.  It harkens back to when she suggested that a Black judge might not be able to be fair, in her suits against Pres. Obama. (More than once.)


She's a cancer on society, but that's what democracy is all about.  We get to suffer Madame Spider-Lashes, Platinum-Wigged play-lawyer Taitz.  One day, the CA Bar will grow a spine and nail her for the vexatious Narcissist she is.  (One can dream.)

I love this article,if it's good for the goosed is good for the gander philosophy, if you punish one you must punish all equally,or it is considered favoritism or racismbased upon the ethnicity of the person committing the situation.   Outstanding article. I agree that if one individual is punished for this type of situation all others should be punish equally if they do the same.....Outstanding go for it

Well for goodness sake, let's all jump on the racism" bandwagon. However it's perfectly okay to be a "reverse racist". What the heck, those white people deserve it after all we've suffered. Let's give it to them straight away.

If anyone says anything at all derogatory, about us, we will have "our feelings hurt", and we will take away his business, make him hated and a pariah in public. After all we are all victims here, and we should be able to wallow in that victimization anytime we want to. So there!

When pray tell is it not "BAT SHIT CRAZY" to accuse someone of using forged IDs when they ARE IN FACT FORGED!?! Do you have to accuse someone of using forged IDs that ARE GENUINE, to NOT be "BAT SHIT CRAZY" in your book!?! Please explain exactly when Evil is good and Good is Evil, what race or ethnic group qualifies for this reversal of reality!?!

Whatever happened to "equal" under the law?

And, since when, can a man's business be away from him because of a statement he has made in the privacy of his own home?

It's usually not good form to argue about someone else's sanity using ALL CAPS lettering. Makes you look crazy.
