"White folks was [sic] in caves while we was building empires.... We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it."

Bozell has been accused of making racially insensitive statements: on December 22, 2011, he appeared on Fox News and stated U.S. President Barack Obama looks like a "skinny ghetto crackhead".

Sharpton's a moron, but he's entertaining and says things that make some folks foam at the mouth in rage.

That's all the matters in cable news punditry, these days. They're all following the profitable template set up by FOX News.

It's also rather amusing that some partisan clown writing for Town Hall is trying to set up camp on the high ground on this issue.
 
2012-03-21 10:25:08 AM  
Bozell is a passive-aggressive whiny little puke, so I'm not sure who to root for in this.

Because Republicans have demanded that Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, everyone on Fox and Friends plus innumerable others that aren't as famous be fired for racially insensitive statements.

There's no single demographic that is more put upon in the US than white, conservative males. Yup yup.

These are the same assholes who complain about political correctness constantly, right/ Because... fark, they're complaining a LOT about stuff that doesn't actually happen. Every day is a variation of "Why can't we say the n-word? Chris Rock says the n-word all the time!"

Poor poor teabaggers. Nothing ever goes their way.
 
2012-03-21 11:36:36 AM  
First of all, fark Al Sharpton. He's always been a douchebag. Go ahead and boycott his advertisers and get him off of the air. I doubt anyone will care.

Second, who keeps greening the idiotic Townhall links?

Good grief.

He isn't stupid. He can't read off a teleprompter to save his life, but that's not stupidity.

If you watch the guy in a roundtable or a one on one debate he can generally hold his own.
 
2012-03-21 12:12:40 PM  
Wait, so having a former civil rights leader give opinion on racial prejudice is the same as a having the opinion that white culture is under threat from black and brown people?

Really townhall.com?

Sad.

Fair enough... "Moron" might not have been the term I was looking for.

I dislike how the arrogant sonofabiatch never expresses remorse for the Tawana Brawley thing and instigating the Crown Heights riot.

Fark Sharpton. Jesse Jackson might be a shakedown artist but he's a helluva hostage negotiator. Sharpton is just a farking fat jerk.

Brent Bozell is the whiniest POS on the 'net
 
2012-03-21 01:22:29 PM  
Go f*cking cry about it you worthless entitled piece of sh*t. When conservative, Republican Caucasian people face one-tenth the kind of discrimination that blacks and other racial minorities have and still do, maybe then you get to complain about white folk not being allowed to be racially provocative. But not before. You don't get to complain about it while white people still get an amazing allotment of privileges just for being white.

In fact, I think I'll hold my breath in anticipation!

Nowhere in that ridiculous article does it accuse Sharpton of actually saying anything offensive during his TV show.

By all means, threaten a boycott and pressure his advertisers. Be my guest.
 
2012-03-21 01:39:11 PM  
From my perspective having grown up in up-state NY, Al Sharpton has always seemed to be a self-aggrandizing schmuck, riding this cause and that because he thinks it's going somewhere. The name he's built helps focus attention to the cause, the cause helps further build his name. And my (admittedly white, and thus perhaps biased) impression is that the black community defends him against criticism over his various past mistakes in the same tribal reflex as Republicans defend Gingrich, Limbaugh, and so on. It seems all but inevitable Al Sharpton's departure from MSNBC will when he gets fired for saying something stupid, again.

However... he's not said anything of that caliber stupid lately. His legitimacy as a political commentator seems on par with Elliot Spitzer's. So, Town Hall can go find a fencepost to sit and spin on.
 
2012-03-21 01:42:16 PM  
America has something called "Freedom of Speech." It lets people you dislike say stuff. It also means you can insult them.

But it also means you are a jackass when you claim the government or their boss should fire them.

And a stupid jack ass when you think the other side gets special treatment when it is quite clear they don't.

Im sure you have a link to all those? Do they even add up to al sharptons list?

Msnbc, where calling someone an entertainer is racist, but al sharpton is not.

Before I read TFA I simply assumed it had to do with how really, really, REALLY bad he is at the job. If any random two minutes of his show were a demo tape he would never get a call for an audition.

My funny Al Sharpton Story:

My brother and now-sister-in-law were getting married in Poughkeepsie, NY. At the time, Rev. Sharpton was on trial for his actions in the Tawana Brawley case. He was staying at the same hotel. After the reception at the Grand Hotel in Poughkeepsie, the happy couple were going upstairs to their wedding night. Shaprton and his group followed them - a newly married couple - into the elevator. And then he proceeded to act like it was a nice gesture to greet them, take pictures and shake his hand.

Now, as I understand it, a newly minted Husband and Wife might, MIIIIIGHT just want a bit of privacy.

And remember: all during a trial where he was found guilty of lying.

It was a funny weird end twist to a happy day.

I think I heard this story before . . . He asked them what floor they were going to, and they thought he meant "Hit the floor!" right?

While I consider everything from TownHall crap, I do think think Al Sharpton needs to shut up and go away. Everything he gets involved in, he turns into a circus.

Is there a term analogous to "godwin" when someone invokes the KKK to win their argument? There should be:

FTA: "David Duke underwent a face-lift, but he still had to answer for David Duke."
