Sharpton: My Listeners Overwhelmingly Support Court's Gun Rights Decision
Thomas, Sharpton Listeners On Same Side Of Gun Debate
For all the flak Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has taken from so-called civil rights leaders (in addition to obnoxious white liberals), it's interesting to see his stance on Second Amendment gun rights resonating through the African-American community this week.
Don't take our word for this, as it's none other than Al Sharpton who today made the stunning on-air admission that the overwhelming majority of his listeners are pleased with the US Supreme Court's decision.
From the program:
SHARPTON (4:52): I would say 90% of the calls I received yesterday were in support of the Supreme Court and people say they want to bear guns. They’re tired of the violence and it’s very very interesting. I have had a few on both sides today, but yesterday was overwhelming, it was stunning to me.
I just told Attorney Lou Meyers, lady stopped me last night; I did the commencement address at Boys and Girls High. She said I listen to your show Reverend and I want you to know I’m saved sanctified by feel of the Holy Ghost, but if they come in my house I’m going to drop them right where they stand. So, and she looked like she was in her eighties.
What could possibly be more threatening to the white liberal establishment than common ground discovered between Al Sharpton and Clarence Thomas? Just the idea is enough to give our "progressive" friends chest pains.
