What is he? He is a god. He cannot be touched. Every faux pas he makes goes un-checked. No matter how racist or wildly inaccurate. I believe that Al Sharpton and MSNBC need to be held accountable for the recent influx of black on white crime do to the hype over the Trayvon Martin case. Whites are being killed by blacks at alarming rates in this country (for every 1 black person killed by a white, 7 whites are killed by blacks) and yet he puts garbage out there expecting us to believe that whites (code word: conservatives) are the ones doing the exterminating. These ridiculous groups that get people like Don Imus and Pat buchanan fired are the same types of groups rational people need to start emulating if we are to get wackos like this off the air.
I discussed this problem on another article posted concerning this double standard. A prime example was what MSNBC did to Don Imus who made a slight regarding the make-up of a college sports team in NJ. He didn't call them sluts, no nothing like that.
Once the Dems added many of their supporters to the Hate crimes list, Holder has enthusiastically sought out slights nationwide including oone Proffessor Mike Adams cites regarding a transvestite who managed to get the DOJ to submit a letter demanding a small college provide him/her with a separate restroom.
This sort of activity is expanding at such a rapid pace, we may soon have to have groceries delivered to our door if we vote Conservative.
Maybe it's just me, but it seems Rev. Sharpton, Rev.Jackson, and Rev.Wright, and some others, attended same seminary, these three gentlemen have that christian brotherly love thing down pat.
I have never heard brotherly love preached their way by anyone who serves the master, maybe it's just me.
I can't help but ask myself, what would Jesus say?
Maybe, you have these among you for you to know the difference between love and hate.
thanks Mr Levin.
TEA PARTY PATRIOT
I am so happy someone has the courage to tell the truth about Sharpton and ask for his dismissal from mslsd. I agree he can barely speak in complete sentences so, maybe it is best for mslsd to trot him out and be their poster-boy. They expose their ignorance and his in doing so.
I am tired of listening to conservatives whine about this. Shut up or do something.
"Community organize." Put some money up. Get groups to go after sponsors and threaten them with boycotts. Or buy MS-LSD and fill up with conservative programming.
Da... bunch of crybabies and Hannity the lead whiner.
Sharpton, is nothing more than a "huckster"...Man...what a way to make a living...exploiting race division...
...oh GREAT ONE , let us leave AL NOT SO SHARPTON (kudos to you SIR)alone he is a perfect reflection of the IDIOTS on the LEFT and a great source for idiotic and down right stupidity that will help our side WIN in historic landslide VICTORY on November 6th 2012 !"
Sharpton will NOT be fired - He provides amusement !
That being said and talking about RACISTS
has anyone seen JEHMU GREENE a/k/a/ SHAMU
from this incident ??>>>
I haven't seen SHAMU since - not that I look very hard
Freedom of speech whether you like it or not. This man has been exposed for the racist he is. He will sink in his own ship!
I hear about "freedom of speech" a lot, but I want to remind everyone that freedom of speech does NOT mean you can say any fool thing you want.
From my college years' recollection, it does not cover things like fighting words, slander, endangerment, etc. The classic example is that you can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater. You also couldn't incite a riot and claim it's free speech.
My point is that guys like Sharpton are walking a fine line where their words are so hateful and inciting of violence at times that freedom of speech is no longer a shield for them...or _should_ not be, that is.
And I say Amen to that. However, I do like to watch Uncle Al mispronounce every other word. Pretty much Par for the course at that channel.
Did you guys catch the "Randi Rhode-kill/sidewalk/hiccup" comment???....HAHAHAHA. It took a little while, but I figured Mark would get a nice shot in. Again, Mark finds a way to get you fired up and laughing in the same sentence. It's a gift you can't teach. As for Sharpton, not a chance he gets fired, but I applaud Mark for exposing his hate speech, which for Sharpton, is far too often par for the course.
Spot on Mark... you nailed the issue and clearly pointed out what a fraud Sharpton is.
Good job! And I echo your comment with a twist: "Throw that bum out in the streets and keep him away from a microphone. He's a punk and a disgrace."
Wow. I don't think I've ever heard a conservative call for the firing of an on-air individual.
Granted Sharpton brings absolutely nothing to the table, he is a major race-baiter, and certainly a total idiot, but we usually put them down for what they are and demand they get the Jethro Gibbs 'head slap'.
Al Not-so-Sharpton has really gotten Levin ticked off for him to say this.
I personally like him still at MSNBC. Can you imagine how much money he is losing for them? Keep up the good work.
Since they hired Sharpton knowing how stupid he really is they aren't going to fire him for his current stupidity.
Sharpton has it backward. There are much more black people killing others, whites and blacks than white people are. So if anyone is trying to wipe anyone out, you only need look in the mirror Al. Your race baiting and victimology that you preach to blacks is what keeps them oppressed and angry.
Yeah, as much as I agree with Mark, I can't see MSBFD really taking any steps to rectify Al's rhetoric.
