Al Sharpton now a power player

Anyone who lived in the NY area during the late 80′s and 90′s knows the truth about Al Sharpton. He’s a race hustler always looking to instigate racial tensions where there are none. Now he is treated as a kingmaker in politics. The Pharaoh’s regime treats him as a big player. Newscorp which is the parent company of Fox News, sponsored his National Action Network’s convention. He has gone from race hustler to a legitimate player.

The Rev. Al Sharpton is lord of all he surveys.

“Check out this,” the flamboyant civil rights leader told me during breakfast at his organization’s annual meeting this week. He flipped through the program until he found a full-page ad with the logos of Fox News, the New York Post and the Wall Street Journal. “News Corporation Proudly Supports National Action Network’s 2012 Convention,” it said.

Sharpton grinned. “They bash me on Fox News,” he said. “But they sponsor my conference.”

Everybody wants to be on Sharpton’s good side these days. No fewer than five Cabinet officers and a senior White House official went to this year’s convention to kiss his ring. President Obama spoke at last year’s conference and has sought Sharpton’s advice on policy. Sharpton has a show on MSNBC five nights a week, and he doles out airtime to a procession of politicians and journalists (including me).


It was confirmation that Sharpton has pulled off one of the rarest second acts in American public life: from pariah to power player.

This is another sign of the degradation of our politics. A race baiting trouble maker is now a legitimate political . Al Sharpton should be shunned, not treated like legitimate political player. I find this revolting and disgusting.

    Well, just look at Bill Clinton. He was on trial for rape when he lied about “just sex” with an intern. People forget where he was testifying when he lied “just about sex”. And he is as revered as ever. Blame Fox, Rush, Savage, Hannity, Levin, and any other non-liberal talker for not reminding the American public about his stain on the Presidency. Letting him off the hook for dragging America thru an impeachment is disgusting.

    Al Sharpton should also be exposed every day by those same people so he stops gaining legitimacy. Look what happened when the heat was turned up on Van Jones. Now HE TOO is trying for a “comeback” (pun intended/Lewinski reference).

    They need to be exposed to the light of day, every day.
    ….and you can quote me on that….

    He may be a “legitmate player” but he’s still a race hustler.

    @ Carolina Girl:
    Sharpton is an insipid cretin, but after all this
    time could he at least speak English?
    Every time that I hear the guy it is like Ebonics
