  • Al Sharpton blasts Travis Scott over alleged Super Bowl halftime show hypocrisy

    12/23/2018 2:09:19 PM PST · by ColdOne · 20 replies ^ | 12/23/18 | Jessica Sager
    Jay-Z isn't the only person upset with Travis Scott for agreeing to perform with Maroon 5 at the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show. Rev. Al Sharpton slammed Scott, claiming that Scott essentially turned his back on the Black Lives Matter movement and police brutality against people of color by agreeing to perform at the NFL's biggest night. "I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the NFL should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that...

  • Al Sharpton Messes Up Spelling of Legendary Aretha Franklin Song: 'R-E-S-P-I-C-T'

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | August 19, 2018 | Paul Crookston
    MSNBCs "PoliticsNation" host Rev. Al Sharpton called on President Donald Trump to be respectful in his rhetoric toward women but inadvertently misquoted legendary singer Aretha Franklin's most famous lyric. Sharpton was addressing Trumps insults toward Omarosa Manigault Newman, the former White House aide and "Apprentice" contestant who wrote a new tell-all book criticizing him. Trump called Newman a "dog," a favorite insult of his that Sharpton called an "animalistic slur." "I think you mightve learned the lesson this week, sometimes the dog bites back with a book deal," Sharpton said. Sharpton concluded his comments with a reference to Franklin's 1967...
  • Resist We Much: Al Sharpton Misspells Aretha Franklin's Classic 'R-E-S-P-E-C-T' Lyric

    Today, The Washington Free Beacon picked up an incredible soundbite of MSNBCs Rev. Al Sharpton misspelling the late great Aretha Franklin's classic lyric, R-E-S-P-E-C-T," as he attempted to lambaste President Donald J. Trump for saying that former White House staffer Omarosa Maginault Newman was "fired like a dog."Rev. Sharpton began by noting how often President Donald J. Trump loves to use the term fired like a dog or some variation of it, such as saying Sally Yates choked like a dog during her Senate confirmation hearing. He even highlighted how the President referred to Steve Bannon, who is often vilified...

    Journalist and former MSNBC host Tour confronted Virginia GOP Senate candidate Corey Stewart for saying people are sick and tired of talking about race all the time. Tour, joining Stewart and guest host Rev. Al Sharpton during Saturdays edition of AM Joy, challenged Stewart on his comments, saying that race was part of "everything" in the U.S. This is a white supremacist country and we have to deal with that in every way in how we relate to the police, in how we relate to jobs, how we relate to the criminal justice everything everything, Tour said.

    The Philadelphia Tribune ^ | August 17, 2018 | Raynard Jackson
    With the mainstream media focusing on the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville riots of last year, many news organizations are basically blaming President Trump for stoking the hatred and racial tension that led to the violence in that small college town, because of his coarse rhetoric on immigration and the NFL player protests. I will concede that Trump is not without blame in contributing to some of the coarseness of our society, but its hard to deny the fact that Trump has been consistent his whole, adult life. Trump has always been brash, arrogant, self-centered, abrasive in his language, and...

    Troublemaker: The Rev. Al Sharpton, like all of his race-baiting colleagues, long ago ceased to be a useful force for change in America. Thats because long ago in the 1960s our country adopted a series of civil rights laws and regulations cementing the Constitutions promise of equal treatment and justice for all. But in 2018 Sharpton continues to pretend like our country has made no progress at all when it comes to civil rights, so every time there is an incident involving a black man killed by a white person, he has to show up and needlessly stir...

    In America today there is nothing worse than being called a racist. You cant easily defend yourself against the life-changing, sometimes career-ending smear which evildoers can wield with impunity. There is nothing worse for your career, New York State Assemblyman Kieran Lalor (R), said on Fox and Friends, theres nothing worse for you as a person. A lot ofpeople dont want to speak up because theyre going to be accused of being a racist. Yet outrageous, even genocidal, statements are issued every day now by hate-filled black supremacists and their radical allies. In a case of deviancy having been...

    Blue wave? What blue wave? Even Al Sharptons not seeing it. On Sharpton's MSNBC show this morning, Hugh Hewitt, seeing no blue wave, predicted that Republicans would pick up four to five Senate seats and hold the House. You might have expected Sharpton to sharply disagree. But to the contrary, he said: We are hearing in the media blue wave. But we really dont know. I travel a lot; Im on the ground a lot. I dont feel a lot of energy; [though] more than Hugh gave us. I dont think were at the cemetery, but I do think were...

    NEW YORK (AP) President Donald Trumps former personal lawyer Michael Cohen and the Rev. Al Sharpton have met to renew a long acquaintance and theyve made a point of letting the public know. Both tweeted about their Friday get-together but left the subject of it a cliffhanger: I bet youre wondering what we could be talking about! Stay tuned, Sharpton wrote. The meeting came with Cohen in the spotlight after federal agents raided his home, office and hotel room in April as part of an investigation into his business dealings, including a $130,000 payment he handled as part...

But we have to go much further. Journalists were killed with a shotgun. Get the rest of...

    Rev. Al Sharpton reportedly said Wednesday that President Trump is set to win reelection in 2020 because Democrats are too tame to deal with an untamed opponent." The reverend told The Guardian during a visit to the U.K. that Democrats likely to face off against Trump in 2020 are failing to excite opposition to the president. He said a lack of leadership would lead to a bad result for Democrats in the midterm elections and noted that mobilization is needed for a landslide win. Theyve lost the ability to dramatize, Sharpton said. He understands spectacle and drama and they dont....

    Roseanne Barr lost her new television show. Barr, in a tweet about Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, said of Jarrett: "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." The comedian deleted the offensive tweet, but the damage was irreversible. The reaction was swift. The Rev. Al Sharpton tweeted: "The comparison ... of ... Valerie Jarrett to an APE is racist and inexcusable. ABC must take action NOW!" The Disney-owned ABC issued the following statement: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show." Barr left Disney little choice....

Bernie Sanders (I-VT), which was problematic, he charged, because the network was in the tank for Hillary Clinton.He described how MSNBC chief Phil Griffin was a "watchdog" who closely managed which stories were covered, and relayed one incident where his story about Sanderss launch of his campaign was bumped in favor of other news.

    Whos at the top of the list of people relitigating 2016? Hillary Clinton, of course, who has blamed her loss on everything from James Comey to the Curse of the Bambino. So on Al Sharptons MSNBC show this morning, when Howard Dean emphatically instructed people relitigating 2016 to leave us alone, who do you think he had most in mind? Right. Sharpton apparently didnt want his show to become a platform for criticizing Clinton: Uh, uh, uh: watch it, Howard. Youre getting a little snippy. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
