  • Sharpton Slams Cain For Calling 'Cuban' A Language—Ignores Obama Did Same With 'Austrian'

    Say, Al Sharpton: if Herman Cain lacks "intelligence" for colloquially referring to "Cuban" as a language, how about your guy Barack Obama . . . who did precisely the same thing when it came to "Austrian"? On his MSNBC show tonight, Sharpton mocked Cain, alleging he lacked "intelligence," for asking in an aside while munching on a Cuban delicacy, "how do you say 'delicious' in Cuban?" Does Sharpton not know that Barack Obama, in a much more formal setting, addressing a NATO audience, said something virtually identical, wondering how a certain phrase was said "in Austrian"?

    The Penn State scandal couldn't be more serious. Can't MSNBC find someone more serious than Al Sharpton to comment on it? On his show this evening, Sharpton had another stumble reminiscent of his "resist we much" moment. This time, Sharpton mangled the name of Mike McQueary, the suspended Penn State assistant coach, pronouncing it "Muckary." View the video here.
  • Did Reverend Al Not Realize Bachmann Was Quoting Scripture?

    It's one thing for your average, secular liberal not to know the New Testament. But for the Reverend Al Sharpton not to know better? On his MSNBC show this evening, Sharpton showed Michelle Bachmann, after making the case for self-reliance, saying "if anyone will not work, neither shall they eat." Even this NewsBuster, who is anything but expert in the area, realized that Bachman was quoting Scripture to the effect that people who are unwilling--not unable--to work don't deserve support. But Sharpton incredibly claimed Bachmann meant that "if you don't have work, you should starve." View the video here.
  • Al Sharpton slams Herman Cain for ‘hypocrisy’ for double standard on racism claims

    The Rev. Al Sharpton Tuesday accused presidential hopeful Herman Cain of hypocrisy for downplaying racism in America - while blaming race for his growing sexual harassment scandal. “I think it’s the height of hypocrisy for Herman Cain to say three weeks ago that race was no longer a major factor in this country,” Sharpton told the Daily News. “Now that he's a target, he gets on Fox and says ‘Yes, race has something to do with it.’” Sharpton ripped Cain a day after a fourth woman came forward and said the former pizza CEO had made inappropriate sexual advances.

  • Sharpton: Republicans Can't 'Use Christianity' Then Vote Against Welfare

    Call yourself a Christian? Then you can't oppose whatever welfare programs the Democrats come up with. So in effect argued Al Sharpton on his MSNBC show this evening. In the course of criticizing House Republicans for having passed a bill reaffirming "In God We Trust" as the national motto, Sharpton somehow equated Christianity with support for the liberal agenda. And although I'm the opposite of an expert on Christian theology, he also came up with a formulation on faith and works that might be surprising to some Protestants. View the video here.
  • Shrum's Paula Jones Memory Loss: If Cain Didn't Do Anything, 'Why In The World Did They Pay?'

    Be kind to Bob Shrum. Perhaps the 68-year old is suffering from the not-so-early-onset of some dread memory-loss syndrome. How else to explain his suggestion on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show this evening that the National Restaurant Association's settlement for a relatively modest sum, in today's litigious world, proves that Herman Cain must have done something wrong? Does the failed presidential campaign consultant's support of Bill Clinton, despite his much larger, $850,000 settlement with Paula Jones while "adamantly denying" her claims, fire any synapses in Shrum's cerebrum?

    Sure way to stay schnockered between now and presidential Election Day: sling a shot every time a liberal plays the race card. Latest example: on Al Sharpton's MSNBC show this evening, Bill Press ascribed Republican reluctance to give President Obama credit on Iraq to the fact that "the Republican party is like some of the banks down South. They refuse to give a black man credit." View the video here.

    Sometimes, a show's guest list is enough to illuminate its liberal bias. Take today's Morning Joe. Joe Scarborough has previously spoken of the show's prevailing 10:1 ratio of liberal to conservative guests. But the show took matters that silly millimeter longer today, with a lineup utterly devoid of any Republican or conservative guests, to wit: Katty Kay--BBC John Heilemann--New York magazine Mike Barnicle--former Kennedy-clan aide Carl Bernstein --Vanity Fair, formerly of Washington Post Eugene Robinson--Washington Post David Gregory--NBC host, Meet the Press Al Sharpton--MSNBC host, activist Touré --MSNBC contributor, truther Video and more here.
  • Vote For Obama Because He's Black

    At the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston, Sen. Barack Obama said, "...There is not a black America and a white America and Latino America and Asian America -- there is the United States of America." Those were welcome and commendable words. Unfortunately, they appear to be only words. Since then, Obama has divided us along race and class lines more than any modern president. Some of his strongest, high-profile supporters in the black community are now saying that Obama's race, alone, should be enough for black voters to vote for his re-election. Krissah Thompson of The Washington Post reports...

    Valerie Green-Thomas sees them every day in her classes at the Bronx middle school where she is a special education teacher. Kids hungry, anxious, living in the dark because the electricity in their homes has been turned off. “I really wanted to come to this country, but I am so disappointed,” she said in her Jamaican accent. “To realize that the dream is not the dream.” Green-Thomas was one of several thousand who rallied and marched Saturday as a prelude to Sunday’s belated dedication of the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial. The message of the “Jobs and Justice” event,...

    For most of the Obama administration, we only had to worry about the economic destruction he was fomenting. Now the threats and actions are becoming physically violent. It’s getting scary out there. Forget about running guns to Mexican drug cartels via “Fast and Furious.” Most of the people killed with those guns were Mexican, and they were doing a lot of that even before the Obama administration got into the business of adding to their arsenals. But now we have Democrats, like North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue telling us that maybe we should forgo elections for a few years. Others,...

    I went down to the Washington Monument this morning to check out the big Al Sharpton / big labor unions "Resist We Much" rally, which was essentially a Support Obama's Jobs Tax Increases Bill masquerading as a march and rally in honor of the Martin Luther King Jr. memorial being dedicated on the Washington Mall tomorrow. Seriously, did you think this rally was about jobs? There's nothing like being a labor union employee and being bussed to Washington DC... Getting shepherded off the bus toward the rally....

    Ladies and gentleman, Kanye West is in the building. Or in this case, outside of it. The outspoken rapper paid a visit to the Occupy Wall Street protests Monday afternoon, led by rap mogul Russell Simmons. Simmons was there to appear on Reverend Al Sharpton’s radio show, which the MSNBC primetime host was broadcasting live from the park. The media spotlight on the movement has not faded and celebrity interest hasn't abated. Organization, however, is still lacking and political goals still need unpacking. As the protests enter their fourth week, and copycat demonstrations proliferate as far as Fort Myers, Fla....
  • Sharpton: 'Occupy' Movement Ideally About 'How We Distribute The Wealth In This Country'

    Thanks, Reverend Al. Really. Sure, we know that the left is all about the redistribution of wealth rather than its generation. Still, it's instructive to hear a leading lefty say it in such stark terms. As clear a statement of the manifesto since candidate Obama told Joe The Plumber that "spread the wealth around" is the way to go. On his MSNBC show this evening, Sharpton declared that his view of the Occupy Wall Street movement is that it should be about "really, how we distribute the wealth in this country."

    The Moderate Voice ^ | 10/10/2011 | Janet Shan
    Rev. Al Sharpton and a professor recently debated the “blackness” of GOP presidential hopeful Herman Cainz. Sharpton tore into Cain, saying “how could anyone in their right mind that grew up in the South and saw what they saw, sat up there and act like everybody that is unemployed and not rich did it to themselves.” “Start with your Mama,” Sharpton said. Tough words coming from an ultra-liberal, but he is absolutely right. You see, Herman Cain, grew up in the South at the height of the civil rights movement, so it’s quite obvious he knew exactly how blacks were...

    Six weeks into his new job as an MSNBC host, Al Sharpton has made it crystal clear he despises members of the GOP. So far he has begun one third of his shows hatefully saying, "Hey, Republicans" (video follows with transcript and commentary): October 5: "Hey, Republicans, the people want fairness. Can't you hear them?" October 3: "Hey, Republicans, looks like you've been stood up." September 30: "Hey, Republicans, you sure you want to go after this president's leadership?" September 29: "Hey, Republicans, the people are speaking. Isn't it about time you started

    Trust him--he might be young, but he's a "professional sociologist." So did Harrison Schultz, an organizer of the "Occupy Wall Street" protests, describe himself to Al Sharpton on MSNBC this evening. And he wants Al and us to know that "a lot of the people that are here are in fact anarchists, are in fact revolutionaires. . . . We don't really want to fix [the problems]. It's revolution, not reform." There are also some amusing factoids about Harrison. When he's not out fomenting revolution, Schultz is an . . . analyst for a marketing firm. Oh yeah, and in...

    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."...
