Al-Sharpton Sounds Like Al-Qaeda


"As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways, so don't worry about that; that's a temporary situation,"

File that one under "Douchebag things religious fanatics (of any creed) say."
Have you seen "Jesus Camp?"
Talk about sounding like Al-Quaida...

Well, bb stole my 'douchebag' name, so I guess I'll just add that Sharpton, as well as Jesse Jackson and all the other asshats who make race the first and only issue, marginalize themselves when they say unscripted ridiculous thing like this.

I can't understand why this assclown goes unchecked.

Seems like a lotta folks in the white communityare either so screwed up due to "Political Correctness", or they are just plain scared S&%tless of people like Sharpton and Jackson to tell them to "sit down and shut up!"

Might I suggest reading the whole statement that was made by Sharpton, and also be mindful of the fact that the person posing the question was also a part of the reason the answer was made in the fashion it was.

Also I suspect that this blogger, and those who have commented thus far on this post, are not aware of the policy change in 1964 by the Mormom Church that removed the "sons of Ham" rubbish. Might I add that many Catholics, and religious groups, have also said the very same thing that Sharpton did.

Should I be waiting for the blasting of those religions and their statements about the Mormoms? It is best to do you homework before blogging.

Of course. When Sharpton gets in trouble he plays the race card. Big surprise there.

I agree with Dan, when Sharpton or Jackson get into trouble they sure know how to use the race card. Sharpton is just a bigot.

This from todays (5/11/07)issue of THE HILL by Ron Christie

Hypocrisy, Sharpton Style

These days, anytime an alleged transgression or racial wrongdoing has taken place towards a person of color, the Rev. Jesse Jackson or the Rev. Al Sharpton elbow their way to the microphones to speak on behalf of Black America. That the media accepts them as legitimate surrogates on behalf of an entire race of people is a subject we’ll save for another day.

Yes, don’t get in the way of Sharpton if he can profit from media exposure or some other form of financial benefit by standing in front of the cameras and professing his outrage. Duke lacrosse players? Right out in front. Don Imus case? Leading the charge and meeting with senior executives at television networks demanding justice and equality.

I’m curious, though unsurprised, about the lack of wall-to-wall coverage generated by Rev. Sharpton’s comments the other day regarding former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R). Lest anyone accuse me of taking this out of context, here’s what Rev. Sharpton said verbatim:

“As for the one Mormon running for office,” Mr. Sharpton said, “those that really believe in God will defeat him anyway, so don’t worry about that. That’s a temporary situation.”

Reading Sharpton’s comments I can only conclude that (1) the Reverend, ostensibly one who speaks the words of God to others, doesn’t believe Mormons really believe in God and (2) Americans who believe in a real religion will defeat Romney’s bid for high elective office.

Are you kidding me? If a Republican had said the same thing, we’d be treated to more of the television and media coverage we saw with Imus. In fact, the likes of Sharpton and his ilk would be calling for the resignation of anyone (anyone not a liberal Democrat, that is) who had uttered such hateful and bigoted language. But put a black, liberal Democrat who is articulate and camera-savvy under the microscope for uttering bigoted words? No way — apparently that’s not something the media’s interested in covering. Nor are they holding Sharpton to the same standard to which he demands they hold others.

This and other episodes of a media double standard and the coddling of race-baiters like the Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Sharpton make me sick.
