Al Sharpton: “By Courting Black Vote, Newt Gingrich Assumes That We’re Stupid (Video)

Uh-Oh. The libs sure don’t like it when you point out that blacks have been hit the hardest by Barack Obama’s failed policies or that Barack Obama is the food stamp president. Thank goodness they have Al Sharpton to corral the blacks back to the democrat plantation.

Sharpton blasted Newt Gingrich for having the gall to reach out to black voters.
Mediaite reported, via FOX Nation:

On MSNBC yesterday, Rev. Al Sharpton argued that for Gingrich to even attempt to court the black vote as a Republican candidate was “an insult” intended to “cover up the fact that his campaign is falling apart,” and an actually an underhanded attempt to suppress the black vote.

  • Assumes? Nah..I’d bet he just knows it.

  • Gman

    The real insult is that 90% of blacks belong to the party of the KKK

  • Ladue Pundit

    Yes, Rev., over 95% of your folks voted for Obama, so Gingrich was on the right track. Stupid is as stupid does.

  • Ugh…blindly following off the cliff.

  • mercador

    I never understood the lemmings either.

  • Chisum

    Rev. Al knows that BO will NOT have the same voter turnout in 2012 that he had in 2008. He’s paving the way for SOMEBODY to blame for that.

    It couldn’t be BO’s fault.

  • a former dem

    oh that’s right, Sharpton would rather have blacks not thinking for themselves, not wanting to better themselves, not wanting to make sure their kids succeed more than them. Sharpton just wants a bunch of lemmings to do his binding and listen to his chit.

    Oh yes, damn that Gingrich for treating blacks in this country as regular american citizens and help them reach for the american dream.

  • jim m

    Guaranteed that Al will be leading the race riots when Barry loses the election next year.

  • arnonerik

    Sharpton is nothing but a race hustler who doesn’t want anyone to get away from the Democrat plantation. If he cared about anyone other than himself he would be pushing the Democrat leadership, the Liberal leadership, for school choice that so many Black parents want. Also, he would even join Gingrich in condemning our food stamp President whose policies are destroying the middle class and decimating the poor. Sharpton is a predatory wolf who tries to look like he cares about the welfare of the sheep.

    OFF SUBJECT but important!!
    I just received an email from the Patriot Action Network.
    Chris Christie has appointed a Sohail Mohammed to the Superior Court of New Jersey!! This Mohammed has defended the 9/11 detainees and an Imam with terrorist ties.
    The Patriot Action Network is asking for help stopping this. It will come before the Judiciary committee VERY soon.C
    Chris Christie…609 292 6000
    Nicholas Scutiri. Judiciary Chair…908 587 0404

    Please pass this along!!

  • RS

    I can see why he might be upset, Sharpton and the race hustlers assume THEY have the exclusive franchise for stupid.

  • NeoKong

    Uh hoh geez….
    Cenk and Sharpton openly laugh at the idea of a candidate going into the black community and not offering more welfare and food stamps. They find it funny that someone would instead try to offer them a way off the public dime.

    #10 – Christie is a muslim appeaser and can’t be trusted.

    Sharpton is a racist, and believes all blacks should vote for the democrats, because he said so.

  • Smokey

    Alvin your counter to being stupid would be………

    Fool, ain’t no negro gonna vote for a white man.

    I’m glad that we think along the same lines. If Capt. Dumbo loses in 2012, he will unleash his “Scorched Earth” policy- If he can’t have it, no one will. And I think the chances of that happening are pretty damn good.

  • I_B_Prophen

    If Sharpton is right, then it’s the only thing Gingrich and I agree on.

  • E pearse

    Certainly, not all blacks are stupid, only those that elected Al Sharpton are. That goes for whites that elected Al Sharpton also, if any did.

  • Rob Crawford

    So asking people to vote for you is voter suppression?

    Then let’s convict Obama. He’s been involved in vote suppression for months!

  • Carbon Pootprint

    Sharpton hasn’t been elected to anything. He was installed by the rich white progressives of the eugenics/crony capitalist/sheetless KKK party

  • befuddled

    driving around, i see a lot of obama stickers and all the drivers are old and white. economic hardships make us all conservative in the end.

    if blacks don’t begin to move to the conservative aisle for their own spiritual and economic survival, they are going to be abandoned for hispanic voters.

  • Rachelle

    Al Sharpton gets it. They are stupid.

  • J

    I really do not want to think that. But if they keep telling me that obama is a really, really smart black guy…..what other conclusion can I draw but they are really, really stupid.
    And if what we have now is what a dem calls recovery or highly successful……all I can say is if this is what the left considers a big success, I don’t want to see failure.

  • Joe College

    Al Sharpton has done more than any other human being to murder white guilt. He ought to get a medal.

  • sclemens

    By their fruits ye shall know them.

  • Sharpton might be amazed by the fact that more black Americans are living on food stamps than were held as slaves in the US prior to the Civil War.

    By Courting Black Vote, Newt Gingrich Assumes That We’re Stupid

    Since 90% of blacks vote Democrat, that’s a fair assumption. Democrat policies have undermined the role of the black male to the point he is not necessary in the black family. Before the Democrat Great Society, illigitimacy in black familes was 23%. Now it is 72%.

    Why is it important to have the husband-wife family unit?

    If we are honest with ourselves, we’ll admit that . . . too many fathers . . . are . . . missing from too many lives and too many homes. They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men. . . . We know that more than half of all black children live in single-parent households, a number that has doubled—doubled—since we were children. We know the statistics—that children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime; nine times more likely to drop out of schools and 20 times more likely to end up in prison. They are more likely to have behavioral problems, or run away from home or become teenage parents themselves. And the foundations of our community are weaker because of it.
    Barack Obama, Father’s Day 2008

    Yet in 2012 they will vote, 90% for Democrats. They vote for for more of the crack that is turning them into illiterate, violent savages. Al Sharpton is a chief pusher, so he know’s they’re stupid.

    (He just hates that Newt is trying to horn-in on his racket…)

    ” They find it funny that someone would instead try to offer them a way off the public dime.”

    Best way off the public dime is to END the public dime. Hunger is a POWERFUL motivator, and hard work required for survival is an antidote to criminal behavior. Thugs sleeping all day have plenty of energy for rape and murder after dark. Men who come home exhausted from scrubbing floors or mounting tires all day rarely have the energy.

    Lord, when will we find a candidate or a party that espouses the age old wisdom of “no work, no food”. The updated version would be phrased, “no work, no check” and it might save our society. No more able bodied folk able to sleep in 7 days a week and still have plenty of groceries in the house. I see the Lone Star card recipients and their carts don’t look bare at all. Why would anyone work if they can have whatever they want at the store for free?

  • toongoon

    Somebody has has to explain what is in their best interest, might as well be Newt. Sharpton just wants to keep them ignorant so he has access to obamas stash.

  • Gravelyvoice Jim

    Figures. This is what happens when RINOs cozy up to the left. We should all blame Gingrich more than Sharpton. After all, weren’t Al and Newt once touring partners?

  • JPeden

    “By Courting Black Vote, Newt Gingrich Assumes That We’re Stupid”

    Proving your own stupidity is not a very good comeback to your own dum bass diss of Gingrich, Al. What, are you going to vote for him then?

  • valerie

    I suppose he is picking on Newt Gingrich because he doesn’t have the nerve to take on Pastor C. L. Brant.

    Or AlfonZo Rachel

    FOX could sell tickets to a discussion among those three,

  • lynched1

    I don’t think Al Sharpton should be considered the barameter in which to judge anyones intelligence.

  • Rock

    Well at least Al was kind enough to opened his mouth and removed all doubt.

  • workingclass artist

    Ehemmm…Rev. Al currently in America it is part of the electoral process for any candidate to reach out to any voter….We aren’t a Fascist state yet and when Obama & Democrats lose in 2012 we might avert that fate…Let Americans hear & decide for themselves!

  • big L

    If the GOP rolls on the debt limit and that allows obama to spend billions more, this where it goes,Sharptonland. Also to the stock market somehow to prop it up and the real estate mkt. There the money will go to buy the REOs and as an owner the banks perhaps can do a sale on them to sub primos (again!).

    I am over my head here but there is a scam going on and it has to do with the debt ceiling. The donks are desparate to get it raised so the “walking around money” can be spread from ‘ghettos to geckos’ , but it wil get BHO re-elected for another 4+ yrs…

    The key is the debt ceiling.Gop rolls and cowers no matter what the deal,weare toast. GOPs hold firm we might have a country left.. I am not confident…

  • kato

    The black Section VIII parasites in my neighborhood seem to be doing very well.

    Although they could be doing better if the long-legged mack-daddy would give them all electric cars.

  • CommieJuice

    Power is dry

  • big L

    Why 117 % of the blacks will voter for Obama-wha a matter wit’ you whitys?

    Drive by a house or bldg going up? ever see any black workers? IT used to be the
    drywall and plaster guys were blacks and they were experts and had a good income.
    Usurped by the Mexicans.
    The blacks should furious at their ‘leaders” for selling them out!
    Throw off the shackles of these jokers. Think for yourself! Listen to the conservative message.
    A lot of it is what you may believe-family, work, kids.
    Don’t let the donks checkmate blacks with Illegal alien Mexicans.

  • BaconBits

    Rev. Al, you’re certainly losing weight.

    What’s the problem, the Big C? Yeah, you’re of an age where the old prostate starts rotting. Have a nice trip scumbag.

  • Andreas K.

    No Al, we KNOW you’re stupid.


    I was wondering where the race pimp had been hiding lately…slow day for you pimp boy?…yes the “food stamp” mooslum has made your “people” worse off because they were stupid enough to think that odumbass would just had them everything on a silver platter rather than them actually having to get a job and work for it…here’s a thought…maybe you should be telling your “people” to STOP BREEDING

  • chuck in st paul

    We don’t have to assume anything Al.

  • Major Kong

    Have to be awfully stoooopid to keep voting for a party that denies you education vouchers and enslaved to so-called entitlement programs. STUPID!!!!!!!!!

  • Mark

  • havok

    When a Slave ran away from the plantation.. it wasn’t just dogs and Horseback riding Plantation owners chasing them down… often the Loyal House slave was right up front chase down, to bring the Democrats..err I mean slave owners property back and put them back in line.

    Sharpton is a an A democrat house slave.. doing what his masters expect him to do..
