Call Al Sharpton a radical. Call him a hero. Call him divisive. Or call him an activist. Regardless of your opinion of Al Sharpton, the recent cartoon in Investors’ Business Daily's editorial section is appalling.

Anyone who is disturbed by this cartoon is disturbed to begin with.

I will call him a race bating liar. Cartoon is spot on, and gets my vote for the year for telling it exactly like it is.

Look at the contemporary newspaper cartoons made during the US Civil War, this is nothing.

Call Al Sharpton a radical. Call him a hero. Call him divisive. Or call him an acitivist (sic).

I have other things that I'd call $harpton (and it isn't the "n-word" or anything like it), but my post would be pulled.

They’re “appalled” because they’ve been programmed to associate lynching with slavery and racism. Lynching was simply the preferred method of summary execution adopted by vigilantes early in our history, and was doled out to whites and blacks alike.

I assume this is by Michael Ramirez.
He was a personal friend/acquaintance when he was the editorial cartoonist for the Memphis Commercial Appeal. He was also a great conservative, as well as a Pulitzer Prize wining editorial cartoonist.

Sharpton’s behavior is appalling when seen simply in black and white. Don’t shoot the messenger. That’s what reporters do.

We could also add the recent “truth lynchings” that Sharpton wasn’t directly behind, such as the Duke Lacrosse Team fiasco, but I don’t think there’s a tree branch long enough to portray it accurately...

Sharpton was on the wrong side of the Duke lacrosse fiasco as well, although he wasn't as prominent.

It is Sharpton who is appalling. He is a serial lynch-mob leader. The problem with the cartoon is that is speaks truth far too loudly for some sensibilities.

There is a special Hell waiting for “Reverends” like Sharpton and Jackson.

I feel really sorry for them. They’ve wasted so much.

What's “most disturbing” about the cartoon is the lynchings Sharpton lead or joined that it left out.

Most prominent nationally were “Duke Lacrosse” (mentioned by prior posters) and the “Jena Six.” But I'm sure given enough time a book could be written with much more of the same from then life of Sharpton.

The only disturbing thing about that cartoon is that Sharpton has been allowed to get way with the lynching of the truth for so many years.

I’d say that about nails it. Sharpton and the truth are like oil and water. Of course many people are like that when it comes to race.

Truth hurts? I don't find it appalling, at all. I find it waaaaaay past due. If Sharpton’s antics would have been met with a proper response decades ago, a lot of misery could have been avoided.

What the left finds appalling is that THEIR imagery, that THEY use to cow their political opponents into silence,

is being used, EFFECTIVELY, against their agenda.

That is an excellent cartoon ... some folks apparently can’t handle the truth. Sharpton and his cronies actively try to destroy the truth, as depicted in the cartoon.

That's nothing. The political cartoon from the St. Louis Compost was an elephant with a thought balloon with a voting booth that had a sign "whites only" on it. The caption was "I have a dream". I'd paste a link to the pic but couldn't find it on the stltoday.com website, so any assistance would be appreciated. I shot off a short letter to the editor that it was in bad taste and nothing but race baiting. Reminded them of which party was founded as the anti-slavery party as well as which party was in favor of civil right legislation.
