Al Sharpton showed up on Keith Olbermann's "Countdown" on MSNBC last night, and the pair sounded a theme that's becoming depressingly familiar in the effort to demagogue hurricane Katrina:
Olbermann: I actually heard a commentator this afternoon--it was that Limbaugh--suggest that the issue of class and race in those who were left behind in New Orleans was irrelevant, because, as he put it, those people were not forced to live there and they weren't bused into New Orleans.
And I was thinking, A, this guy is even more clueless than I thought he was, which is saying something. But, B, there are people who actually believe that. How do you respond to them? How do you explain to them what the truth is? . . .

No, Katrina was act of nature.
My understanding is that Katrina sounds like an African-American woman's name.
Every Katrina I have ever met has had a stuck-up attitude and wouldn't hesitate to run you over if you were between her and something she wanted.
Well, as usual, women and minorities are hardest hit.
Yep, the hurricane only picked on one race.
Al Sharpton= race bater
The entire city of N.O. is run by blacks. The citizens didn't listen to their own black leaders when they were told to get the f out.
Anyone who would have Al Sharpton on their show, should be fired. That professional RACE-BAITER is totally disgusting and I am sure that he in no way represents the American black community.
What a slug and a loser. Besides, that he is stupid!
My understanding is it's a German name.
At this stage I think saying no to liberalism is just as important as saying no to King George.
We are witnessing the enemy, the MSM, with free reign. Constant drum beat of self-servicism. If we don't stop it, no one will.
But upon the content of their character...
Character is formed in the home..in intact families...and in schools who are allowed to teach such things....
Catch a clue you poverty pimp sob...you are the greatest evil enabler of your people..keeping them down so they kowtow to you and the communists who run you and your evil culture of learned helplessness
Listen to a real Reverend Jesse....Jesse Lee Peterson of BOND
Take the Army for example. There are 1,012,000 soldiers on active duty, in the Reserves, or in the National Guard. Of them, 261,000 are deployed overseas in 120 countries. Iraq accounts for 103,000 soldiers, or 10.2 percent of the Army.
That's all? Yes, 10.2 percent. That datum is significant in itself, a good one to keep handy the next time someone talks about how our forces are stretched too thin, our troops are at the breaking point, and so forth. If you add in Afghanistan (15,000) and the support troops in Kuwait (10,000) you still only have 12.6 percent.
About as much as NYC was on 9/11.
They will never blame their black leaders though. Pres. Bush is now to blame and totally responsible for every negative situation that happens in the entire world.
Everybody, paste this quote into your perma-keep box and use it the next time a RAT attempts that lame argument again.
"Is Katrina Racist?"
If Jesse Jackson and/or Al Sharpton say so, then it must be true, right?
Democrats and some in the media even said that serving in the National Guard was just as bad as dodgeing the draft.
You're thinking of "Kaqueesha"
