Skip to comments.Al Sharpton: David Brat 'More Than A Brat -- He's A Threat' to Civil Rights
Posted on 06/11/2014 11:59:01 PM PDT by lilyramone
Wednesday on "The Tom Joyner Morning Show," MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton took an alarmist tone while discussing the Republican primary loss for House Majority leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) to Tea Party upstart economics professor David Brat.
"He, as now a hero of the Tea Party, will embolden them to really come with more far right-wing politics which threatens voting rights, civil rights, immigration rights all over this country" he said. "Hes more than a brat, hes a threat."

Oh, no! The Republicans want to bring back slavery!
Who translated it into English?
So Rev. Al actually was complimenting Cantor ? Must be the only Jew Sharpton ever liked.
well, he’s not retarded like you A-hole.
Shouldn’t you be on of your lynching walks and getting Jews killed?
Beat me to it...
Al Sharpton wants La Raza to oust Charlie Rangel.
Only legal immigrants have immigrant rights.
Illegal immigrants have no rights because they broke the law.
I think the short-lived (but awesome) animated show The Critic summed Sharpton up best:
(0:12 mark, for the impatient).
with more far right-wing politics which threatens voting rights, civil rights, immigration rights all over this country”
What planet are these people living on?! When I was young the grown-ups seemed to have knowledge and common sense. Now that I’m an adult I see so many of them carrying on like hysterical ignorant kids. So...because the Tea Party stands against over-reaching government and over-taxation the loony Dems equate that somehow with being a threat to voting, civil, and “immigration” rights? How?! First of all there is no such thing as “immigration rights” second of all nobody in the Tea Party wants to take people’s voting rights away and 3rd what kind of civil rights are we talking about here sir? The Lord said a strong delusion would be sent upon the human race and the only thing that makes what’s going on make sense is that it’s happened.
I would think that “reverend” $$harpton would be happy that Cantor was deposed. After all, Cantor is one of those Jewish “interlopers” that “reverend” $$harpton blames for black folks’ troubles.
Last time I listened to five minutes of Sharpton, I had to conclude that his IQ might be 90, max.
I have known many people with similar intellectual abilities. They can be good people, productive members of society. They work within the limits of their ability.
Sharpton does not.
If there had been no right wing, there would be NO civil rights. Sharpton is too black to understand simple history.
You have to understand, “Brat” is a small word Al can pronounce, so he went with it.
Well that didn’t take long.
Al Sharpton hates Brat? Well, thats good enough for me to like him.
Keep talking Racepimp. The more you talk about a person, the more normal people start to like that person.
Someone said it best about the reason cantor loss>>>>:
“Cantor spend his tenure campaigning to be Speaker of the House, instead of campaigning to be a Virginia Congressman.”
meaning... he no longer viewed his constituents as the people of Virginia; rather he viewed his constituents as Washington lobbyists. Problem with that is... Washington lobbyists are not the ones that vote.
The Obama-mediots never try to pin Sharpie down on exactly what “civil right” will be threatened. I wonder, could he even come up with an answer?
“””Who translated it into English?”””
I was witness to a minor fender-bender involving a middle aged white woman and a 29,30-ish yearold black woman.
Good Lord! The ‘words’ coming out of the black woman’s mouth didn’t even resemble anything in the English language.
Our friends sometimes have fun talking jive and ebonics but we could not even come close to some of the rambling coming out of this woman’s mouth. “I be you be she be you at.” I can’t even type it.
"There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public.
Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances because they do not want to lose their jobs.
There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well. "- Booker t. Washington
Booker T. Washington was a national treasure. More of his quotes follow.

“I shall never permit myself to stoop so low as to hate any man.”
“You can’t hold a man down without staying down with him.”

“A whining crying race may be pitied but seldom respected”
“The Negro has the right to study law, but success will come to the race sooner if it produces intelligent, thrifty farmers, mechanics, to support the lawyers.”
Of course, Sharpie would call him an OREO.
I view race pimps like Sharpton the same as I view Global Warming alarmists... say, a person who gets funding ‘studying’ global warming or a person who owns a company that makes ‘green’ products.
Each have a ‘cause’. Each claims they want to stamp out whatever their cause is. But, each’s own livelihood depends on that cause to remain. If their cause goes away, they have to find another job or.. GASP!... a real job!
And if they cannot find any proof of their cause, well they just pull it out of thin air. But the alarm must remain!
