Sharpton Crony Unleashes Tirade Against General Stanley McChrystal


Sharpton Show Tirade: General McChrystal Must Be Stopped

What's it like to be part of the Reverend Al Sharpton's entourage? Apparently, it's one sheltered environment: while Obama takes heat from all sides for his mishandling of virtually every major pressing issue, Al's cronies seen flabbergasted that anyone would choose to oppose their Dear Leader.

That's despite a well-documented history of Al Sharpton Show callers using the program to express their displeasure. Within the reverend's inner circle, however, overt dissent seems not to exist.

Regular Sharpton fill-in / crony Andre Eggleston used Tuesday's show to lament General Stanley McChrystal's strong criticism of the embattled president, blasting him as "a cancer" during an angry tirade.

In Eggleston's strange world, Obama is little more than a victim of mean people who want to make his life difficult:

ANDRE EGGLESTON (1:40): It’s sad, it really is. Sad to see with all of the problems President Obama has had to contend with, now he has got to deal with rank insubordination, borderline sedition, violations of the military code of justice. From his number one man in probably the most tenuous war America has ever been involved in. We’re talking about Afghanistan. In all due credit to General McChrystal, he did an excellent job commanding Delta force when they killed Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in Iraq. But then you come right back and you keep messing up man.

You know we’ve just had enough of this man and but you haven’t heard the worst of it. If you haven’t read the article in Rolling Stone, one of the worst things that he said to the Rolling Stone. One of the worst gobs of bovine excrement he spewed to that newspaper and magazine, whatever you want to call it, is the fact that he doesn’t know who the enemy really is.

You know McChrystal says he ceased control of the war by quote never taking his eye off of the real enemy, the wimps in the White House. That alone, that alone President Obama and I do hope you’re listening, that alone this guy deserves some very harsh chastisement for that. We cannot have this cancer in our military if this is the way this guy really feels that you’re the enemy. Where’s all this come from?

On Planet Sharpton, Obama is a hard-working leader who eschews golf and crafts carefully-considered plans to deal with major issues, including wartime strategy. Must be quite a place.

McChrystal's words have resonated because Americans have yet to see even a trace of the leadership Obama was supposedly to provide in abundance. Until he learns to fill the shoes, it's unrealistic to expect the public to respect him as Commander-in-Chief.


  • clearly your are anti obama. lighten up and turn republican is something the president cannot do. you are afraid that history is going to remember the president as one of the greatest ever. and he will be. and color will not have mattered.
