Skip to comments.Sharpton Attacks Maxine Waters For Criticizing Obama: 'Hypocrite!'
Posted on 09/27/2011 4:26:36 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Are we witnessing a crack-up within the key demographic President Obama must count on to have any hope of re-election? Al Sharpton has come out firing at Maxine Waters and other black Dems for their criticism of President Obama's perceived indifference to black unemployment. Last month, long-time congresswoman Waters told the audience at a Congressional Black Caucus event that she and other black leaders were ready to attack President Obama as soon as African-Americans "tell us it's all right and you unleash us."
On his MSNBC show last night, Sharpton accused those who spoke of "unleash us" of being "hypocrites." According to Sharpton, such people didn't make a peep when Bill Clinton presided over the reinstitution of the federal death penalty and welfare reform. Sharpton issued a blunt warning: "I'm not telling you to shut up. I'm telling you don't make some of us have to speak up."

Black Democrat crack-up? Sharpton swipes at Maxine Waters for criticizing Obama! Ping to Today show list.
Pass the popcorn, please.
Holder must be deeply saddened to hear his people criticize each other.
“Resist we much!” You go, Al...
Babelfish translation from ebonics..."resist we much and be you sorry!
Oh, I get it! Since they sat on their hands and turned their backs on their “constituents” when Bill Clinton did have their best interests in mind, then they must do the same thing for Obama. Sharpton makes plenty of sense. The Democrat party is more important than black Americans out of work.
These black democrats are losing it and I think it has to do with Herman Cain.

Tell it like it is brotha Sharpton, don’t ya know wez brothas gotsta stick together even though yo Obama’s policies are hurting tha brotha.
My bad! prior post should read: When Bill Clinton did NOT have their best interests in mind, . . .
why is he standing up for that half white guy against a full slave blooded sista?
It is patriotic to criticize Obama. You don’t reward a burglar breaking into your house.
Is she saying they are some kinda animals in lockstep?
Zero creates division and strife everywhere.
Years ago I ran a little business that served other small businesses. One of my customers was a black man who told me that the biggest problem he had was black people who refused to deal with black owned businesses!
Those jokers are “fighting” because they can see the writing on the wall: fiscal reality is in the process of bringing down the Big Daddy Government giveaway system and people like Fat Albert and Maxine will take the biggest hit once the plantation is shut down.
Maxine you go right ahead and criticize Obama. Don’t let Sharpton shut you up on this.
Rev Al to Maxine: Don’t you go gettin’ all uppity!
The only business in my little village is the corner store run by our only black resident. He’s not getting rich but neither is anyone else here.
Flip side of this...
Black resturant business owner friend of mine often spoke disparagingly of black customers cause they never tipped and were always the ones that caused a ruckus after “finding” hair in their food etc.
Obama is the worst thing to happen to the race pimps, but maybe the best thing to happen to the race (in the long run).
Looks like to dogs are fighting over the scraps left over from Obamas table.
Have to say I agree with Sharpton—Maxine is indeed a hypcrite, and a particularly stupid one.
Now, there’s a first! Me agreeing with Al Charlatan. What is this world coming to?
“Black Democrat crack-up?”
LOL I think maxie could take al in a cage match. Or at least that’s the funny visual I’m getting.
Two nuts in the sam sack.
It’s hilarious! Rev Al gets himself a gig on MSNBC with its VAST audience and suddenly he don’t care ‘bout unemployment in da ‘hood. But he’s free to call Marxine a hypocrite. What a hoot.
