Al Sharpton; just how low can he go? Folks, he’s still sinking, and the bottom is nowhere in sight. For those of you who may have doubted that for Rev. Al, it’s all race, all the time, here’s his latest talking point: Republicans aren’t just mean, they’re genocidal, and would like nothing better than to do to blacks what Hitler did to the Jews. Yes, you read that right.
Now, Obama can’t be blamed for Al Sharpton’s paranoia-inducing rants, or even for Eric Holder’s speech to black pastors, in which he compared states’ requiring legal identification from would-be voters to effectively re-instating pre-Civil Rights Jim Crow laws. Obama’s in the catbird seat. He’s got people; people to do things or say things that he can’t risk. But he won’t distance himself from them, either. The press won’t call him on any of it, which makes that much easier for him to have it both ways.
