Sharpton Fires Back At O’Reilly: Since When Are You The ‘Expert On What African-Americans Want?’
Mediaite ^ | July 26, 2013 | Matt Wilstein

Posted on 07/27/2013 7:52:38 PM PDT by NotYourAverageDhimmi

MSNBC’s Al Sharpton took Bill O’Reilly’s recent comments about race head-on Friday evening, after the Fox anchor singled him out last night for being “in business with people who put out entertainment harmful to children.” Sharpton called it “ridiculous” that O’Reilly is somehow the “expert on what the vast majority of African-Americans want.”

“In the time since George Zimmerman’s acquittal,” Sharpton declared, “some right-wingers have gone into overdrive to push the most negative stereotypes of the African-American community for their own gain.” He lumped O’Reilly in with Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity as the “unholy triumvirate of right-wing reaction” that has “been desperate not to have a real conversation about the injustices of the justice system.”

Sharpton mocked O’Reilly and others for their sudden concern about gang violence in Chicago, something he said “many of us in African-American community” have been talking about for months. “Better late than never, I guess.” On O’Reilly’s focus on the breakdown of the African-American family, Sharpton asked, “Is Bill O’Reilly saying George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin because Trayvon was born out of wedlock, even though he wasn’t? That’s ridiculous, right?”

“All of this is an effort to avoid addressing the urgent topic that something is fundamentally flawed with our justice system if laws like Stand Your Ground allow a kid to be gunned down,” Sharpton continued. “But Rush, Hannity, O’Reilly don’t want to talk about that.”

Sarcastically calling O’Reilly the “expert on the vast majority of what African-Americans want,” Sharpton said, “we need a real conversation about justice in this country, not the same old right-wing divide and conquer garbage. Bill O’Reilly, the Willie Horton stuff has got to go.”

There is no way Al "resist we much" Sharpton came up with triumvirate by himself.

That's funny. One of the most negative stereo types of African Americans is Al Sharpton himself.

Maybe they don't want to talk about it because SYG had nothing whatsoever to do with the Zimmerman case. If we tried to make it any more clear to you, Sharpton, we'd have to use crayons and drawing. But you probably would call that racist too.

We're getting increasingly tired about 'conversations about race' where only your side gets to talk.

Here we go again. Only blacks can speak for blacks and Al can speak for everyone.
Everybody else, just shut up and acquiesce. You don't know what you're talking about because you're not black.

Sadly in “Rev.” Al’s mind, he firmly believes GZ jumped out of his car, ran up to St. Skittles and shot him. The evidence showing that TM was beating GZ head into the walk have never entered his pea sized mind.

LOL! So Blacks have been killing themselves by the hundreds for years but, according to Sharpton, they're on top of things because they've been talking about Black-on-Black violence "for months".

Very few in the media actually are versed in the art of debate. BOR should have shut this clown down in a microsecond by pointing out Sharpton’s lies, weasel rhetoric, personal attacks, and logical falsehoods. How Sharpton remains outside of prison is a mystery. No one will call him the reprehensible lying little toadstool and career shit-stirrer he really is.

Thanks for this thread.

________

” - - - what African-Americans want - - - - “

Thanks, Rev. Al. This confirms that your politics are still stuck back in the disastrous Plantation System: “What is THE MAN going to give ME?”

Rev. Al:

* Why not look at the facts of Black on Black murder (93%)?
* Why not use YOUR Leadership to discover the major common denominators for this violence?
* Why not work to reduce the problem without ANY help from THE MAN at BIIG HOUSE at 1600 Plantation Avenue, District of Corruption?

BTW, Rev. Al, what would Jesus do?

I wish Al would spend some time preaching about his mentoring of Tawana Brawley and, later, the Korean Dry Cleaner who he managed to get killed by a gang he ginned up.

He’s not a leader, he’s a homicidal, ego-driven (_o_)

Typical. Accuse whites of not wanting to discuss the “issue”, while simultaneously accusing them of not being capable of discussing the “issue” because they’re not black and can’t possibly understand anything having to do with the “issue”.

Racist Al failed miserably at causing race riots and his days are numbered on the MSDNC Affirmative Action trough, so he tries to start a distraction.

Whitey is not supposed to have a voice in the Black commie discussion and the racist charge is not working.

Sharpton and Jackson are sad examples of the morally bankrupt charlatans that have been bought off to “lead” the black community. These two “reverends” are well paid by the left wing to sell out their own communities and keep uneducated minorities on the Democratic line. They were once “pro life” Now they never mention that the liberals situate most of their abortion clinics in minority neighborhoods. Three generations of urban blacks have been herded into failing union controlled public schools. Meanwhile hypocritical urban liberals (Obama, Rahm Emmanuel, the Kennedy family, Pelosi etc) “choose” good private schools. Not a word from Sharpton or Jackson. These two paid phonies make sure the fiasco continues. Don’t always agree with O’Reilly but its good he has drawn this clown out of his comfort zone. If only fifteen or twenty per cent of blacks began to understand how they are being herded by these corrupt reverends (and there are many more who don’t get the same attention in the MSM as Sharpton and Jackson), there may be some real change. The last thing these phonies want is a real conversation.

“All of this is an effort to avoid addressing the urgent topic that something is fundamentally flawed with our justice system if laws like Stand Your Ground allow a kid to be gunned down,” Sharpton continued.

Less ridiculous than blaming the Stand Your Ground law, which wasn't invoked.
