As I listend to Juan WIlliams and Warren Baletine duke it out the other night on Bill O’Reilly, I like many others did not pay much attention to Balentine’s racial remark towards Williams with respect to telling him to go back the the “porch” after Balentine clearly lost the debate over Rush, race baiter Al Sharpton and the NFL. Why did I overlook his comment? i overlooked his racist comment because it is commonly accepted, whether we like it or not to listend to blacks degrade other blacks as some right they have with respect to being allowed to disresepct “their own people.” I find it even more amusing today when I read and listen to the idiocy of Al Sharpton threatening Rush with a law suit if he does not retract his piece in the Wall Street Journal. Now, I would be quick to back up anyone if what is being said about them is blatantly false or done so with malicious intent, but the only person who has said anything of this sort was Sharpton!
What is even more sad is the fact that the media, which already has one leg and the other foot in the grave, aired unresearched and false comments that Rush said. While his McNabb comment was tasteless and racially insensitive, it was NOT racist. The bloods and the crips comments? I mean really? Can you not do the research and go back to the contents of that conversation with a BLACK SPORTS COMMENTATOR AGREEING with Rush. Again, it would BEHOOV people to do some research before they throw out accusations an assumptions that only enhance the true ignorance of a select few in this country!
I found a piece written back in 2007 when Imus was racked over the coal for calling the Rutgers girls basketball team “nappy headed whoe’s”. Now, I call my daugher nappy head in the morning because her hair looks, well nappy. Never in my 35 years on this planet have I hear that term referenced in a racial tone, and I live in Houston, Texas. For those who do not know ro choose to overlook it, this is one of the LARGETS melting pots in the nation with a large black and hispanic population. And, as a former police officer I have heard just about everything use in just about ever manner.
When one considers the multitude of hurtful, malicious, deceitful things Al Sharpton himself has said and done over the years—chiefly for the purpose of justifying his own existence as a proverbial shepherd dutifully shielding black Americans from the white racist wolves that supposedly surround them all times—it is beyond incredible not only that he hosts his own radio program, but that anyone on earth should take seriously anything he has to say.
Sharpton’s career as a public liar and racial arsonist began in earnest two decades ago when he injected himself into the case of 16-year-old Tawana Brawley, who in November 1987 claimed that she had been repeatedly raped and sodomized for four days by six white kidnappers, at least one of whom was wearing a police badge. She further alleged that her assailants had chopped off some of her hair, forced her to perform oral sex on them, urinated into her mouth, smeared her clothing with feces, and covered her chest with racial slurs before finally depositing her in a wooded area of Wappingers Falls, a town in Dutchess County, New York. It was among the most disturbing tales in living memory.
Al Sharpton quickly assumed the role of special adviser to Miss Brawley and thereafter worked closely with the girl’s attorneys, C. Vernon Mason (who, later in his career, would be convicted of 66 counts of professional misconduct and disbarred from the legal profession) and Alton Maddox (who has publicly expressed his profound hatred for white people). Lamenting that their client had fallen prey to “certain elements that have constantly antagonized the black community, including the Ku Klux Klan and law-enforcement personnel,” Sharpton and the Brawley lawyers demanded that New York Governor Mario Cuomo appoint a special prosecutor to the case and publicly charged that “high-level” local law enforcement officials were involved in the crime—an allegation that led to numerous death threats against members of the Dutchess County police department. Sharpton further demanded that New York Attorney General Robert Abrams be removed from the case because of an alleged “relationship” between Abrams and the Dutchess County sheriff who was, according to Sharpton, “a suspect in this case.” Sharpton insisted that there was “absolutely no way” that his client would talk to Abrams. “That’s like asking someone who watched someone killed in the gas chamber to sit down with Mr. Hitler,” he said.
So the case dragged on, week after week, with Brawley refusing to speak to even a single investigator—ostensibly because she feared that as an African American she would be unable to get a fair hearing.
Then at a March 1988 news conference, Sharpton and the attorneys fingered Stephen Pagones, Dutchess County’s assistant district attorney, as one of their client’s attackers. Further accusing district attorney William Grady of trying to cover up Pagones’ involvement in the crime, they demanded that Governor Cuomo immediately arrest the two “suspects.” When asked what evidence they could provide to substantiate their charges, Sharpton and his cohorts were evasive, saying only that they would reveal the facts when the time was right.
Three months later something very important happened: a Sharpton aide named Perry McKinnon stepped forward to make a remarkable series of disclosures. A former police officer, private investigator, and director of security at a Brooklyn Hospital, McKinnon revealed that “Sharpton acknowledged to me early on that ‘The [Brawley] story do sound like bull—t, but it don’t matter. We’re building a movement. This is the perfect issue. Because you’ve got whites on blacks. That’s an easy way to stir up all the deprived people, who would want to believe and who would believe—and all [you’ve] got to do is convince them—that all white people are bad. Then you’ve got a movement.” Explaining that Sharpton was methodically “building an atmosphere” for a race war, McKinnon continued: “Sharpton told me it don’t matter whether any whites did it or not. Something happened to her…even if Tawana done it to herself.” To prove his truthfulness, McKinnon submitted to a lie detector test administered on camera and passed all questions.
