Caller Confronts Sharpton Show Over Palin Smear Campaign


Oops: Sharpton Confronted On Sarah-Bashing

We thought Al Sharpton had learned his lesson about taking calls on political topics, but apparently not. During today's syndicated / satellite-based radio show, one particularly determined listener called out the Reverend on the anti-Sarah Palin smear effort underway.

Listen as Sharpton's guest jumps in to preserve the storyline with a twisted rewrite of recent history. Whether directly or indirectly, Palin's still been faulted by Sharpton's allies, there's simply no disputing that. In fact, during Monday's program, visiting Reverend Jesse Jackson used the airwaves to blast her "role" in last weekend's Arizona shooting spree.

From today's program:

AL SHARPTON (43:13): Let’s go to the phones Jeff, let’s go to December in Cincinnati, December.

DECEMBER IN CINCINNATI: How are you doing? All right. Man this is the craziest thing I ever heard of in my life. We blaming Sarah Palin for this lunatic that went out here and shot up the town, but we going to blame Sarah Palin. This is my two cents man, I’ve been hearing your show and listening to people call in, it’s that same old stuff to me. We got to find someone to blame. But this is the left playing games and I think it’s going to backfire on them man. I seriously do. Sarah Palin shouldn’t, your guest Jeff, whatever his name was, he was way off man. Sarah Palin ain’t got to apologize and take no responsibility for none of this craziness. This dude (Loughner) was going to do something sooner or later and it had nothing to do with Sarah Palin.

JEFF JOHNSON (Sharpton Guest): Brother brother let me ask you this let me ask you this, I don’t think either of us blamed her for the shooting. Here’s the issue, whether it’s Sarah Palin on the right or whether its other folks on the left and I don’t think the left is off the hook on this either, but we were talking about her comment in particular. You don’t believe that both she and people on the left and the media for that matter are responsible for promoting the kind of environment that encourages this kind of stuff to happen. Not that they were responsible for one crazy person in Arizona taking a gun and shooting a Congresswoman, but for creating an environment that increases hostility instead of reduces it.

DECEMBER IN CINCINNATI: No, and I’ll tell you why, cause this environment is way before Sarah Palin. You know people buy into this Republican and Democrat thing too much now and it’s the radio talk show hosts and media stream that’s bringing this out. It ain’t Sarah Palin. It’s the people that host these shows and all this stuff that throw this out here. More people are into politics now than ever. You’ve got people families breaking up fighting each other over Republican and Democrat. You know you was right about one thing. Everybody do have to take some blame if somebody is going to take some blame, but Sarah Palin, no way! I think the reason why Sarah Palin taking all the blame is because they scared of her. There’s a possibility she could be president. Why, she’s public enemy number one to the left. Now for her to get all this attention, she must be top dog. That’s my two cents.

Sharpton followed up by referring to Palin's "crosshairs" political ad from last year, but hasn't that already been greatly overused as "evidence"?

And why aren't Sharpton & Pals concerned about the already-brewing backlash against the Hate Sarah Brigade? Don't they realize they're fueling it?


  • Lets blame everyone EXCEPT THE SHOOTER. Yeah, that makes sense. The only other person/group that might shoulder the most of the actual blame is Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik. The more we learn about Jared Loughner's past, we know that he was very familiar with law enforcement in AZ, including the Pima County Sheriff's office & Sheriff Dupnik. If they knew that he was a nut case, & they did nothing about it because there were people pressuring them to sweep it under the rug, Dupnik should be in real trouble. There really needs to be a serious investigation into what happened leading up to the shooting. My guess is that AG Holder won't do crap though, & it may require a GOP led Congressional investigation to start looking into this disaster.

  • You do not use target symbols on political opponents in America, that is, if you hope to be an American leader.

  • All one needs to know about Al Sharpton's qualifications to speak on extreme rhetoric and murder is summed up in the name "Freddie's Fahion Mart"

  • "You do not use target symbols on political opponents in America, that is, if you hope to be an American leader."

    Except the DLC did the same thing. Obama talked about bringing a gun to a knife fight and punching back twice as hard.

    Why are you only saying that now that Palin is caught doing it?

    Is it because you don't really care about target metaphors?

    And why is the left still showing the target map? They say it's leading people to murder, and there are many other districts marked on it. Aren't these people admitting they aren't really worried it's going to harm the other district office holders?

    This is a fraud.

  • Sharpton has become irrelevant, and now is walking around with "hammer looking for a nail". Only the far left loons, and the easily offended listen to him. Is anyone really surprised?
