  • Sharpton Guest: Men Wear This PC T-Shirt For Ulterior Romantic Reasons

    "It's Friday night." That was Al Sharpton's sheepish way of excusing the not-suitable-for-network-TV line that a guest had just uttered on this evening's Politics Nation. Australian satiricist Josh Zepps' zinger came during a discussion of a video ad in which young girls drop repeated f-bombs, supposedly in defense of feminism. The ad was produced by a clothing company trying to cash in with t-shirts bearing PC messages against sexism and racism. Zinged Zepps: "I'm offended by the shamelessness of the cheap ploy of the people that got them to do it . . . There's something about this company that...

    Controversial voter identification laws are not the primary reason minority voters are failing to cast their ballots, President Obama said in a radio interview airing Tuesday. "Most of these laws are not preventing the overwhelming majority of folks who don't vote from voting," Obama said during an interview with Rev. Al Sharpton. "Most people do have an ID. Most people do have a driver's license. Most people can get to the polls. It may not be as convenient, it may be a little more difficult." The Justice Department has challenged new voter identification laws in Texas and North Carolina. Those...

A lot of the states that are contested this time are states that I didn't win. And so some of the candidates there, you know, it is difficult for them to have me in the state because the Republicans will use that to try to fan Republican turn-out.

    Racism is caused when the liberal mostly white establishment anoints left-wing radicals as black leaders. The truth is that most blacks in America are conservative patriotic religious people. Black radicals such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and historic figures such as Malcolm X and the Black Panthers are turned into cultural icons by left-wingers with ulterior motives. No wonder there is racism in America. The establishment left plucks radicals out of obscurity, grooms them, lavishes them with money and fame and holds them up as representing all black people.

Al Sharpton, a fiery activist who became a household name by provoking rather than pacifying. Sharpton—once such a pariah that Clinton administration officials rushed through their ribbon-cuttings in Harlem for fear he’d show up and force them to, gasp, shake his hand—arrived on the scene 72 hours after the shooting at the request of Brown’s grandfather, who had admired his advocacy on behalf of the family of slain Florida...

    There is a lot of anger in Ferguson, Missouri, and much of it understandable. But there is also a lot of spectacle and drama. "Ferguson" has become a rallying cry for hucksters, a ratings point for the media, and a point of argument for friends on social media. What Ferguson really is, is a deeply wounded city in Missouri. Its citizens are divided; its trust in authority is collapsed; it has one less 18-year-old and an injured policeman. There are no winners in Ferguson, just a lot of tears and heartache. Most Americans tend to trust and support their police....

    Perhaps it’s time to finally concede that Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and their fellow civil-rights crusaders have apparently been correct all along: There is indeed a whole lot of racism in America that just won’t go away. It may be time to admit that Sharpton is justified in so passionately condemning the recent police “execution” of Michael Brown in Missouri—calling it a “defining moment” for our country, a moment where the nation itself, with all its weighty, racist baggage, “is on trial.” The numbers, after all, don’t lie.

    To cleanse the palate, via the Corner, a debate between a conservative who’s a world-renowned neurosurgeon and a liberal who often appears to speak English as a second language is a debate conservatives should welcome. Plus, the moment seems propitious. As usual, Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have followed the media to the scene of a new racial flashpoint, but this time it hasn’t turned out for them as they’d like. Jackson allegedly got booed when he asked a crowd in Ferguson for donations while Sharpton’s taken criticism in highly visible outlets — some of it polite, some less so...

Small cities stretch their budgets in a bad economy to put as many cops as they can on the street. And then somewhere between the open fire hydrants, the stores that do most of their business in EBT cards and lottery tickets, the check cashing places and furniture rental outlets, something happens.

    Every big-city mayor and police chief in America — including the guys from Chicago — are watching what is happening outside of St. Louis, in the town of Ferguson. Ferguson was once a white suburb. Now it is predominantly black. And it's hurting. A young African-American man, Michael Brown, is dead, shot by police. In the days since there have been anger, rioting, looting and, of course, the politics of race. And the thug behavior of the looters accomplishes something else: It helps lock Americans into various camps from which we're comfortable listing grievances and condemning the behavior of others.

    The old poverty pimps and entities with vested interest in stirring the pot and limiting hope are pushing in overdrive these days. In today’s USA Today, Jesse Jackson is claiming that the lack of diversity in Silicon Valley is a sign of racism and sexism. He is calling on President Obama to do something about it. “There is no talent shortage. There’s an opportunity shortage.” Jesse Jackson What he has done is actually cite the fact that Silicon Valley is hip and put out neat gadgets as the reason it gets a free pass for being one of the most...

    According to the Beyond Diversity Resource Center (BDRC) the problem with working with Whites to end racism, something Gallup’s new poll tells us is statistically non-existent, as a concern of just 1% of Americans, is working with Whites. The BDRC is a bunch of phony race hustlers, comprised of cunning young Blacks (who want to be ready to work the race baiting game when Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are gone) and White-hating Whites looking for a way to be relative. These are their rules for HAVING to deal with Whites. Notice there is nothing about being angry enough to...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Al Sharpton’s history of hate is so voluminous and well documented, where does one even begin? The time he disparaged Jews as “diamond merchants” during the unrest of the infamous Crown Heights riots? Or when Sharpton tried goading NYC’s Jewish community into an all-out fistfight, saying “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house”? How about referring to the Jewish owner of Freddy’s Fashion Mart, Fred Harari, as a “white interloper” for seeking to expand his business in Harlem? (You may have heard of Freddy’s. It was...

    One of many myths surging through American culture today is that whites are rampaging racists, but minorities are simply peace-loving folks who never engage in violence. This canard is the kind Al Sharpton might teach in a civics class. And we all know that the mainstream media is Al’s civics class. That’s what makes an investigative journalist like Colin Flaherty all the more important. His new book, “White Girl Bleed A Lot,” exposes the brutal violence minorities inflict on those for whom they have contempt – a worldview fostered by the type of incitement Hillary Clinton is supposed to have...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)WEST PALM BEACH -- If you support Florida's Stand Your Ground law as a politician, a controversial political activist is coming after you. Reverend Al Sharpton has fought the law since the death of Trayvon Martin. Sunday, he announced a new action against state lawmakers who support it. At a benefit for the Grace Baptist Church of St. Lucie at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, Rev. Sharpton says his National Action Network group is shifting its focus onto the Sunshine State with the hopes of repealing the law by changing the makeup of the state legislature and affecting...

    Here's an outstanding, detailed history of the man Obama keeps at his side as he tries to drum up black turnout for the midterms. It's time to, in Saul Alinsky's words, "isolate and target" him, and here's the ammunition to do so. A sample from Wayne Barrett’s article in Salon:

    “Post-racial” was the media buzzword from the moment Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election until well into his first term. We were told we were ringing in a new day in America, one where we finally started moving past the racism that stained our nation’s history. But we haven’t. In fact, we’ve regressed. A nation that is nowhere near what it was in the Democrat-created Jim Crow days is being portrayed as just as bad as it ever was for two simple reasons that are as old as time itself: money and power. After twice electing a black president,...
