Sharpton Show: 'There Is Not A Black Man On The Supreme Court'
Sharpton & Pals Help Dems Smear Court's Conservatives
With a potentially-bruising battle over a vacant US Supreme Court seat ahead, Democrats have decided to play offense, attacking conservative members in order to shift attention away from their own far-left agenda.
Whether this will actually succeed is difficult to determine at this early stage of the game, but some of party's fellow-travellers have eagerly signed-on to participate.
Here, listen as Obama confidant and infamous huckster Al Sharpton's radio show turns into a Clarence Thomas bash-fest, featuring regular guest Dr Boyce Watkins kicking off the festivities.
Who would they rather see on the court, Tawana Brawley?
DR BOYCE WATKINS (GUEST, AL SHARPTON SHOW) (12 April 2010 - 4:56): Another thought, going even deeper I think in terms of race in my opinion there is not a black man on the Supreme Court. You know hey I am going to get a lot of flak for saying that. Ha ha ha ha. We need a black person on the Supreme Court, why not a black woman?
SHARPTON (13:17): A lot of us would like to see blacks [nominated for the US Supreme Court opening], but a lot of us also are reminded that we got a black from George Bush Sr named Clarence Thomas and a lot of us would rather not, I’d rather have someone else who would vote, in my opinion who would vote in line with upholding human rights and civil rights and woman’s rights and prisoner rights then to have someone like Mr Thomas, Justice Thomas, who I think has consistently voted against all of that and has been one of the most inflexible members of the white right voting black in terms of not only the court, but in terms of his own public expressions.
WATKINS: But it is absolutely true. I mean when you talk about Clarence Thomas, you know he’s such an atrocious appointment for the black community that even his wife is a very vocal Tea Party member you know which is to some extent it undermines his integrity as a judge to have a spouse who is so politically active.
Consider this just a taste of the smear campaign to come.
