Posted on 12/12/2010 7:30:39 PM PST by John Semmens
One-time Democratic presidential candidate Al Sharpton demanded that the federal government pull illegitimate commentators off the air. The Reverend was especially incensed by radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh.
The air waves belong to the government, Sharpton maintained. The government has the right to decide who may use them. Those who misuse them like Rush Limbaugh does ought to be shut down.
Free speech is not the issue, Sharpton argued. Just because we say theres free speech doesnt mean you can say whatever you want. Theres got to be limits. When a person like Limbaugh persistently criticizes the President without just cause, thats racism, and the FCC has the authority to take him off the air.
To help facilitate the FCCs regulatory process Sharpton offered to vet all talk show hosts in order to prevent racism and ensure that those biased against the President arent permitted to abuse the public airways with their message of hate and intolerance.

Too bad, though, it’s a semi-satire, because it’s just too real, considering what Al is like.
Spot on Aruanan!
He's a delusional nut-job and a racist of color.
This is all anyone needs to know about the good Reverend.
We don't owe America anything - America owes us.

Not unusual for sharpton. He feels the need for some attention and says something stupid to stir up controversy. It’s best to ignore him.
Limbaugh is bad for Sharpton’s sleezebag race-peddling business.
There is no right NOT to be offended, squeaky Al... and drop the Rev. crap... you’er about as reverend as a spit-wad made of dingle-berries, naval-lent and toe-jam together...
Got me AGAIN.
Another head shakin’ chuckle John.
Probably upset that only 2 people listen to his radio show...lol Easy way to get rid of the competition. Or should I say sleazy way to get rid of the competition.
An illegitimate commentator” is one that doesn’t agree with Sharpton. He’s a freaky little totalitarian...
He is a butt mouth racist instigator who doesn’t recognize the need for truth and fact.
We all need to just simply tell hem that it is he that needs to STFU!!!!!!!!!
well there goes 99.8% of rap "music"
btw, Sharpton, the air and the waves in it belong to the people, not the government.
Ah yes ... “racism.”
The magic word the Left incants like a magic spell to shutdown all criticism and to persuade gullible conservatives to surrender without a fight.
Race card salesman gets cranky when sales are down.
