White media mogul Steven Clifford: Straight white males should be banned from voting

Steven Clifford, 75, is a former president and CEO (1987-1992) of the Seattle-based radio-TV media conglomerate King Broadcasting Company; a former chairman (1992-2000) of Los Angeles-based National Mobile Television; and  author of the book CEO Pay Machine: How it Trashes America and How to Stop it.

He is currently secretary and trustee of Seattle Biomedical Research Institute, and writes trite little columns that he thinks to be amusing for Huffington Post.

On October 30, 2018, after speaking at a forum on destroying market fundamenalism organized by the Center for Study of Responsive Law founded by Ralph Nader in 1968, Clifford told PJ Media that the right to vote should be taken away from heterosexual white males as a way to “save” democracy because a majority of them had voted for Donald Trump in 2016.

About the upcoming midterm elections, Clifford was asked what message or advice he would give the Demonrat Party. Clifford said:

“I’m not a campaign consultant and I think they [Democrats] have to get off the fact that Donald Trump is Donald Trump. Every voter knows that Donald Trump is Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton spent $450 million every day saying that Donald Trump is Donald Trump. I think they’ve got to tell the voters why they’re going to be better off with a Democratic House or a Democratic Senate rather than just say Donald Trump, Donald Trump, Donald Trump every day… ‘Anti’ doesn’t get people out to vote enough. It’s got to help me….

I think it’s the only hope for democracy in America and I will be leading a great movement to prohibit straight white males, who I believe supported Donald Trump by about 85 percent, from exercising the franchise and I think that will save our democracy.”

In a Sept. 23, 2016 essay for the Huffington Post, Clifford took issue with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign slogan of “One America, One God, One Flag”. Clifford archly and with malice associated the slogan with Nazism. He wrote:

I think this is a loose translation of “Ein Volk, Ein Reich, Ein Fuehrer” but my German is not very good.

So Clifford advocates banning straight white males from voting, which is racist, sexist and heterophobic, but he calls Trump a Nazi. Oh, the irony.

Then Clifford wrote:

But this One God thing has me worried. How do I know that Trump has chosen the right God for us to worship? I fear he could select the God of my Catholic childhood, a cantankerous old white man who, according to the local clergy, was obsessed with 13 year-olds masturbating. “There goes Clifford again. Hey Mary give him another two centuries in purgatory. Maybe I should grow some hair on his hands.”

We know what Trump thinks of Mexicans. What if the pearly gates are not guarded not St. Peter but by Quetzalcoatl, and Huitzilopochtli is the big Kahuna. We could be in big trouble….

Even with demanding human sacrifice, Huitzilopochtli doesn’t look so bad. Baal, Marduk or Thor would be a big improvement.

Since Steven Clifford, by his own description is an “old white man,” and since I very much doubt he is advocating banning himself from voting, I can only conclude that Steven Clifford is a homosexual.

There is no Wikipedia entry on Steven Clifford, but here are  his Facebook and Twitter. Bloomberg lists his business address, phone and fax as:

307 Westlake Avenue North
Seattle, Washington 98109
Phone: 206-256-7200
Fax: 206-256-7229

So if you are a heterosexual white male and you are thinking of not voting next Tuesday, you may lose your right to vote in the future.
