Here’s one for the irony files.
On the June 04 edition of Hannity, the host attacked Al Sharpton for his criticism of president Trump.
Without naming the president, Sharpton said:
“For those who have agendas that are not about justice, this family will not let you use George as a prop. They talk about making America great. Great for who and when? We are going to make America great for everybody for the first time!”
It was clear that Sharpton was referencing Trump’s photo op in front of Ashburton House, St. John’s Episcopal church, in which National Guard and police used tear gas to disperse peaceful protesters from Lafayette Square.
Hannity was triggered by the criticism. In Trump Town where Donald Trump is considered a God among men – just ask Ben Harrison – no one is ever allowed to criticize him. He’s Abraham Lincoln, Ronald Reagan, and George Washington all wrapped tightly in one neat package creating a type of hibrid superman. To criticize a man of his great stature is sacrilege.
Immediately he set Sharpton straight on the fact that it was Donald Abraham Washington that called for an immediate investigation into the death of George Floyd, reminding us all that the four officers involved were all fired without hesitation, and that justice would be served because the police are always held accountable by the justice system when they do wrong.
“With Sharpton you’ve got fear, division, hatred, blame Trump – everything is in Trump’s name,” Hannity said.
Previously, on The Five, Pavlich also attacked Sharpton with no sense of self awareness of her own long career of sowing racial division.
“If we’re going to talk about unity and trying to build bridges I’m not sure that Al Sharpton was the best choice considering his long career of sowing division in this country and burning bridges down rather than building them up. And so he’s the one who made it political, unfortunately, he attacked the president even though the president is the one who called for the FBI and the DOJ to look into this, he’s from the beginning said we don’t want these cities to be burned down by rioters, we want people to protest and we want the families to have justice. So it was great to listen to the family members to talk about who George Floyd was but if we’re going to talk about unity and moving forward and how to heal from this situation I’m not sure that Al Sharpton is the one to lead the way.”
Michael Brown was killed by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer who obviously lied about Brown attempting to punch him and take his gun. George Floyd was killed by a white police officer with a questionable record of misconduct. When Obama called for an investigation into Brown’s death, Pavlich and company attacked Obama, and Holder for allegedly “making things worse,” accusing them of stirring racial tension, never mind the fact that racial tension had already been stirred up with Brown’s death. They attacked Sharpton, for daring to “insert himself into the situation,” blaming him for the riots.
Conservatives have hated Sharpton since the Tawana Braceley case. It has stuck in their collective craw ever since. Therefore, because he was proven wrong for supporting a woman who lied about being raped, he has no credibility, because he’s proven himself to be the real racist, a despicable racial instigator whose only interest is fanning the flames of hatred for white people and police. He’s no longer entitled to his opinions – unless it confirms a racial view about black people, like how they’re inherently more prone to violence ( conservatives in general would be singing his praises if he said this ) – and has no right to involve himself in politics, especially if it has to do with racial justice – if he does, he’s just inserting his big nose where it doesn’t belong, because according to conservative wisdom, there is no more racism in America, and there hasn’t been since Barack Obama was elected president, and he and Sharpton just made everything worse by falsely claimng that there is racial bias in policing. According to conventional conservative wisdom Barack Obama set back race relations fifty or more years, just by being the first black president, thereby making conservatives be racist, and Sharpton no doubt had a hand in convincing Obama that conservatives hated him because he’s black. That Sharpton sure is a smooth operator, always managing to see race where it couldn’t possibly exist.
It sure as hell doesn’t exist in right wing media.
It sure as hell can’t be found at Blaze TV. Only hard hitting truth can be found there.
It sure as hell can’t be found at Right-wing News. Soy boy John Hawkins never once wrote an article entitled, Barack Obama Is An Anti-white Racist, or tweeted that a black person voting for Obama was like voting for the KKK.
It sure as hell can’t be found at World Net Daily. They never once questioned Barack Obama’s birth certificate, or compared him to Hitler over Obamacare, or anything else for that matter.
It sure as hell can’t be found at Rush Limbaugh’s radio show. He never once said anything racial about America’s first black president, like calling him Barack The Magic Negro.
It sure as hell can’t be found at Townhall. Katie Pavlich and other honest and serious journalists there never published dishonest and misinformative articles about Black Lives Matter or the former president.
And it sure as hell couldn’t possibly exist at Fox News. I never once heard any fear, division, hatred, or blame for Obama. And I certainly never heard anyone there refer to the former president as America’s Chief Racial Arsonist. It’s just a liberal left wing myth.
