Several black activist groups conducted a lobbying effort Monday against a GOP House resolution condemning Louis Farrakhan, a person even the usually conservative-bashing Southern Poverty Law Center has condemned for his anti-Semitic, anti-white, and other racially hateful remarks. This is not news in the establishment press, and probably never will be. That's because Monday's effort exposes the groups involved — The New Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter, and Al Sharpton's National Action Network — as unrepentant defenders of hate, and would, if widely known, discredit their claims to speak for the broader black community.
On Sunday morning's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, during the "Gotcha" segment, host Al Sharpton lamely compared himself to James Bond as he likened conservative donors Charles and David Koch to Bond-type "villains" because of their support for conservative causes.
New York Times metro reporter Greg Howard's profile of Al Sharpton, the racially inflammatory activist and MSNBC host, will run in Sunday’s edition. As is Times’ custom, Howard skipped over several racially and deadly incidents connected to Sharpton. The headline and subhead betrayed the paper’s pathetic attempt at positioning Sharpton for posterity: “Al Sharpton, Reconsidered -- Mr. Sharpton has been called a race hustler, a hero, a buffoon, a freedom fighter. He would prefer to be remembered as the Martin Luther King of the North.” Ironically, the article contains no reconsideration of Sharpton – Howard fawned over Sharpton just as much as all the other Times’ reporters who have written about him.
On Monday’s Morning Joe, as part of their nearly three-hour long marathon of anti-Trump hate in reaction to the President’s alleged comments describing Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as “shithole countries,” co-host Joe Scarborough brought on just the right person to attack Trump as a race-baiter–the Reverend Al Sharpton himself. Apparently unaware of the intense irony, Scarborough presented Sharpton as a legitimate voice of moral authority on questions of racism and both MSNBC pundits went on at length about how Trump’s true political “agenda is to race-bait and bring [America] backwards” “100 years.”
The left’s favorite race-baiter, the Rev. Al Sharpton, made a cameo appearance on Fox’s Star in the episode titled “Ghetto Symphony” that aired November 29. Naturally, the current hero of the Black Lives Matter social justice warrior movement, Colin Kaepernick, is name-dropped, too.
On Sunday's AM Joy, one left-wing MSNBC guest portrayed Republicans as a "RepubliKlan party" promoting "white supremacy," and another guest tried to paint one of President Donald Trump's judicial nominees as a "segregationist" as he also smeared former Senator Jesse Helms as "one of the most notorious racists in American politics."
What a shock it truly wasn't that one of the most warped recent examples of Trump Derangement Syndrome would be heard on a cable show hosted by Al Sharpton. Former Chicago Bulls player Craig Hodges, author of "Long Shot: The Struggles and Triumphs of an NBA Freedom Fighter," appeared on Sharpton's PoliticsNation yesterday to talk about President Trump's criticism of NFL athletes for kneeling during the national anthem to protest perceived racial injustices.
On Tuesday, Morning Joe did a special 10th Anniversary show with a live studio audience that spent a significant amount of time recounting the show’s more memorable, historic, or simply entertaining moments (at least in the eyes of its hosts and guests). However, in their romp through history, Joe Scarborough and guests like former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg could not help but to completely annihilate any coherent or reasonable understanding of Al Sharpton’s long history of racial incitement and promoting insanely hateful, paranoid conspiracy theories about Jews, whites, and cops for the past four decades.
Since Donald Trump began his run for President in June 2015, parts of the dominant liberal media have repeatedly parroted the incorrect claim that, in 1989, Trump ran a newspaper ad in which he urged the execution of a group of young black and Hispanic teens who ended up eventually being proven "innocent" in spite of confessing to the infamous rape and beating of a Central Park jogger that year.
On Sunday's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, as Al Sharpton presided over a discussion of an upcoming march to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr.'s role in the Civil Rights Movement, the MSNBC host fretted that President Donald Trump is "killing the dream" after one of the guests claimed that MLK Jr.'s "dream" had become a "nightmare" for many.
On Sunday's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, host Al Sharpton slammed President Donald Trump for recently using the term "paddy wagon," calling it an "anti-Irish ethnic slur." He then went on to absolve himself of his own long history of using ethnic slurs by vaguely admitting to doing so in the past, but by lumping himself in with everyone else as "we," as he claimed he already "corrected" his offensive comments.
On Sunday's PoliticsNation, after MSNBC legal analyst Paul Butler incorrectly claimed that a "majority" of those killed by police officers are "people of color," host Al Sharpton later reiterated that it "usually" happens to "people of color." In fact, according to statistics compiled on police killings for 2015 and 2016, for those cases in which the victim's race has been identified, more than half those killed were white.
