Sharpton's 'Politic Nation' Already Angering Conservatives
The hosts use of 'segeration' to illustrate state's rights deemed racist
He's seat hasn't even gotten warm yet and Al Sharpton is already the target of conservative watchdogs, who are claiming racism over a recent show monologue. While addressing the batch of GOP presidential candidates and their undying love for the 10th Amendment, Sharpton points out that states rights, in the past, have allowed such uncivilized acts like segregation to exist. Conservative websites are now ramping up their campaign targeting Sharpton, including BreitbartTV, who writes:
Using his now familiar bumbling, bewildering and bombastic delivery, Al Sharpton premiered his brand new show on MSNBC, “Politics Nation” with an attack on the GOP presidential candidates saying they want to bring the country back to pre-1960’s segregationist times. He also promised that this was what his show was going to be about.
Considering Mr. Sharpton’s entire career up to this point has been defined by making loud accusations of racism through a bullhorn, we should not be surprised that this will be the content of his NBC News program. Lean Forward, indeed.
Have a look at the clip yourself and see if BreitbartTV's claims are justified.
