Sharpton & Friends Struggle To Support Flaky Occupy Movement


Umm, What To Say About Those Rich White Kids?

Lest they be seen as unsupportive toward a key "progressive" cause, nothing's more amusing than observing Al Sharpton & Friends make obligatory excuses for the Occupy Wall Street movement.

The Reverend and his pals aren't the best actors, however, so their natural hesitation at embracing what is, after all, mostly a bunch of rich suburban white kids is difficult to hide.

With new revelations that some are staying in $700-a-night Manhattan hotels, these concerns have only been reinforced.

In two examples from the past week, listen as Keeping It Real With Al Sharpton guests and hosts do their ideological best to cover for Occupy's aimless flakiness even when their hearts just aren't in it.

The first clip is from Friday's syndicated radio program:

AL SHARPTON (18 November 2011) (19:03): Occupy Wall Street, the day of action yesterday. How do you view it?

GEORGE CURRY (SHARPTON GUEST / ACTIVIST): Well, I went to the one here in DC and I think I see some of the questions of the leaders there saying what do you want? Are you going to run for office?

They want this whole agenda there when really people are really expressing their disgust and disappointment with where we are as a society. The divide between the haves and the have-nots. And I think it’s a bit unfair to expect them to have a very planned agenda knowing exactly where they want to go.

Next, has Al Sharpton EVER sounded less enthusiastic about anything? From earlier in the the week, note Exhibit B below. Team Obama must now see Occupy as a liability, so watch here as Al pays obligatory lip service to the movement and little more:

Between this aimless movement and Team Sharpton's shameless support for a dubious cause, it's a wonder the left has a shred of remaining credibility.
