Al Sharpton Claims Black 9-11 Victims Have Been Treated Poorly


Were 'Bankers' Treated Better Than African-Americans?

Just when you thought every possible 9-11 conspiracy theory had been concocted, disseminated and happily adopted by its natural constituency, along comes Al Sharpton to make the average kook look like an amateur.

Yes, seven years after that horrible day, Sharpton & Co still see the terrorist attacks as a vehicle for their divisive message of hate. Claiming African-American victims have been mistreated in favor of white "investment bankers" and others, Al found someone willing to back up his nonsense: Amsterdam News editor Eleanor Tatum.

Here's a partial transcript of yesterday's show (which he billed as "seven years later- now you can hear the truth of what really happened") along with a video clip immediately thereafter:

SHARPTON: I think a lot of people would be surprised as we see all of this sanctimonious behavior that none of these people have been aided in any way. And wasn’t even invited to the ceremonies this morning. I mean people that survived and ran for their lives are not part of what you are watching on television.

I think people need to know that. And over half of the people that were killed were people of color. You would not know that. Not that I condone anybody being killed. I certainly feel for the white families as well, but they’ve put a white face on this and you have to ask yourself why.


SHARPTON (44:40): That’s one of the reasons Ellie I wanted to do this show. This happened to us (blacks) too. Whoever did it, whether you believe the conspiracies or not, let’s not act like this happened to us too. And I think that is the point I am trying to make today.

ELEANOR TATUM: Yeah, that’s why the black press is so important because because we’re really the only ones that told the story of our communities as to what happened all across this country.

SHARPTON: Exactly, exactly right.

[Next hour]

TATUM (21:04): Even if we look at the rescuers, the rescuers you saw on television were white, for the most part. And in the days afterward you saw mostly white rescuers being interviewed and then the dogs.

Other than to incite hatred along ethnic lines, what in the world is the point of this kind of rhetoric? And when they are unable to provide any evidence to back up these outrageous claims, shouldn't Sharpton & Friends be held accountable?

  • Obama's campaign - The Gift That Keeps On Giving:
    Al Sharpton, Pastor Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Wiliam Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Michelle Obama, Reverend Michael Pfleger, Ahmed Yousef, Ludacris, Antoin “Tony” Rezko

    I hope the Democrats keep this ongoing campaign of shooting themselves in the foot.

    For example: Barry's latest ad that McCain can't do emails.

    It was dumb because it would alienate older voters. But it turns out it's a lot dumber than that:

    The reason he doesn't send email is that he can't use a keyboard because of the relentless beatings he received from the Viet Cong in service to our country. . . . McCain's severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes.

    It's extraordinary that Obama who wants to be our president and our commander in chief knows how to send an e-mail ... but not how to do a five-minute Google search.

  • You couldn't get a job at McDonalds and become district manager after 143 days of experience.

    You couldn't become chief of surgery after 143 days of experience of being a surgeon.

    You couldn't get a job as a teacher and be the superintendent after 143 days of experience.

    You couldn't join the military and become a colonel after a 143 days of experience.

    You couldn't get a job as a reporter and become the nightly news anchor after 143 days of experience.


    'From the time Barack Obama was sworn in as a United State Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a Presidential exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of experience in the Senate.

    That's how many days the Senate was actually in session and working.

    After 143 days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to be Commander In Chief, Leader of the Free World, and fill the shoes of Abraham Lincoln, FDR, JFK and Ronald Reagan. 143 days?

    We all have to start somewhere. The senate is a good start, but after 143 days, that's all it is - a start.

  • Sharpton's now nothing but a stormtrooper in Obama's international Hate Machine.
    He's feeling a little ignored, people.
    Everyone pay attention to Al for a minute.
    There you go.
    Feel better, Al?
    Here's some more of that crud you put in your wig.
    Now run along.

  • Sharpton's a community organizer.

    Hey, you know who else was a community organizer?
