Outrageous!… Sharpton Says Republicans Are to Blame For Black & Latino Unemployment (Video)

This is so outrageous!
Race-hustler Al Sharpton blamed REPUBLICANS for high black and Latino unemployment on his show yesterday… Because blacks predominantly work in government jobs.
What a clown.
Via Radio Equalizer:

AL SHARPTON (15:34):

One of the reason that I think people do not understand why unemployment has gone down and in some cases black unemployment and Latino’s has remained stagnant is over the last thirty two months Dr. Hutchinson, they’ve increased jobs and found jobs unemployment has gone down in the private sector. What has not gone down is in the public sector and blacks in particular are disproportionately in the public sector. One of the reasons those jobs have gone down, or have remained down is one the Republicans are cutting a lot of the agencies, where we are the employees are government jobs, government employed and a lot of those jobs go through governors and mayors who are also have had cutbacks. So what we’ve got to do and we addressed that to the President is take on these governors and mayors as well as the private sector on why the private sector is getting all these contract and bailouts and not hiring and correcting the disproportionate amount of their employment does not touch our community and have the President and them support us in that.

Of course, Al has nothing to back up his claims. He just makes up his race-hustling has he goes along.

    Sharpton is a racist imbecile. A massive lie made him famous (Tawana Brawey). I can still see him with his “do”, a grey tracksuit with about 60 more pound of fat on him, and a gold medallion around his neck. And where was he ordained, pray tell? Reverend? Uh-huh.

  • nocoen

    What the heck!?!!!!??? As usual, this drivel from Rev. Al makes no sense. He needs an education in both finance and economy to understand the relationship between assumption of risk and flow of free formed capital as these concepts relate to engagement of labor in the production of goods and services…oh hell that is way beyond his pay grade.

  • The Power of Stupid is strong in this one. Without the help of the Liberal media (I mean media) he would be recognized for the race-baiting parasite he is. He has absolutely no redeeming value at all. Maybe in a dead heat with Bawney Fwank in that regard.

  • attagirl

    I listened to his comments. I read his comments. After listening and reading it more than three times, I can honestly say, I could not make any sense of it. The man is incoherent. He is unable to speak in complete sentences. All he does is put words together without any semblance of rational thought. This is a member of the MSNBC news/opinion team. They should be ashamed to call themselves a reputable T.V. outlet of information. I wonder who he is ‘blackmailing?’

  • You know, I’m beginning to think all that cheap labor wasn’t such a bargain after all.

  • Navy seal

    I see why employers don’t hire blacks now, their to afraid they’ll talk & act like the Rev Al…what a idiot!!!!

    His comments are a direct reflection of why his show is on little-watched MSNBC.

    Blacks are unemployed because they are 1. lazy and lean toward basketball, hip-hop, crack, and hangin’ with hos. Also, they are poorly educated and unmotivated as shown in Florida’s lowering of school standards for blacks – they just can’t cut it.
    I think Mexicans, and others from Latin America are more ambitious and hard working, but they lack the education to qualify for a decent job.

    What a sad example of a person who is supposedly trying to resemble a journalist or pundit. This guy is the problem for race relations and will never be the solution.

    @ #10 Ark.. No need. His face already does the same job quite nicely . What a pig.

  • jony101

    maybe they need to at least graduate from high school so they can pass some sort of test for the job they want. No one wants to hire a dummy except maybe the government.

  • Vicky Hernandez

    One would think that with the millions this guy makes he would invest in a little self-refinement.

    He might also take in a little Econ 101 while he’s at it. He just might find that the poor don’t employ anyone [even if they want to], and that “government jobs” exist because of We The People’s taxes.

    Oh, wait. What am I saying? He’s a “man of G-d.” Of course, he already knows that.

    If people are stupid enough to believe what Sharpton has to say, just like with what Obama has had to say, and they vote along those lines, they deserve what they get. The Democratic party, which spawned Ku Klux Klan has accomplished their goals of keeping minorities from realizing the promise that is America. They found a few sellouts like Sharpton and Jackson who will lead their fellows down the path of financial enslavement. Kind of makes you wonder if the CIA didn’t invent Crack.

    When are you folks going to come to realize that the way to make these leftist clowns (like Sharpton and Clyborne) and media asshats like everybody else at MSNBC, NBC, CBS, CNN, and ABC, stop the demonization and lies, is to make them pay for their attacks in a personal way.

    Go back and read Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” for the overall strategy.

    Do oppo research on these leftists. How many media blow-dried talking heads have marital or drug addictions or criminal records from when they were younger? For example, when one of ours goes on CNN or MSNBC, instead of playing nice, at the first instance of a “hostile” or demonization question or comment, our spokesperson responds with a tidbit out the past of the of the media hack.

    For example, Sharpton has Tawana Brawley, and back unpaid taxes, the fatal riots in NYC.

    So, if Sharpton makes one of his attacks, the response should be “Hey Al, how’s Tawana doing these days? Are you finally current on your income taxes? Do you regret causing the murder those innocent Jews in NYC during the riots you started?”

    Many, if not all, of the leftist talking heads, poverty-pimp politicians, have dirt in their past. Find out what it is. We can silence them by exposing and throwing their dirt in their faces directly. On national TV. Remember Alinsky’s rule 5 and rule 13 work BOTH ways!

    What you cannot use on TV, route to the National Enquirer. Put it on as many blogs as possible.

    Rule 5 is always devastating when utilized properly! Watch how masters like Greg Gutfield use it. Read his book “The Joy of Hate”to see how the left uses “faux outrage” and how to counter it.

    So, the next time these leftist throw out lies as insults, the next Republican/conservative that goes on their crappy shows, right out of the box asks the leftist host: “Have you conquered your addition to meth yet??” or “So sorry about your recent divorce. Was it you who cheated or your spouse?” Whatever is appropriate and accurate. (oppo research!!)

    The people who espouse our point of view need to be prepared to “clinch and gut punch” the leftists. Do it often enough and the leftists and the media will stol using our spokespersons as punching bags.

  • Buffalobob

    The most disturbing aspect surrounding Sharpton is that he is accepted on all of the networks. He is the epitome of what a racist is, and yet people treat him with respect rather than disdain.

    I was thinking the same thing when I read his comments(I can’t listen to him). We’ll be called racists, but I couldn’t care less at this point. Rather than write what I really think, I’ll just agree with your remarks. My comments wouldn’t be civil.

    Al Sharpton is a racist and a Jew basher

    [Equally inexplicable is how someone with Sharpton’s professed
    abhorrence for racial insensitivity could have spent so many years
    as a strong supporter of the late Khalid Abdul Muhammad, whose

    Illegal aliens are the primary reason for unemployment.

    Ironic that the party that openly supports illegal aliens is the same party that garners the most support of the unemployed.

    This irony is an opportunity.

    What would be easier for the party of small government, improving performance among big government traditon Hispanics by 25%, or among limited government tradition whites by 2%? Assuming a static level of support form other demographics, either way gets you to victory.

    Trying to get signifcantly more Hispanic votes by jettisoning core principles is going to cost the Republicans more votes among people who share those principles than it is likely to get among people who have been conditioned to view the Republican Party as racist and who don’t share those core principles. Is this concept really so difficult to grasp?

    The great majority of Hispanics (~71%) don’t want limited government; they come from cultures where a dominant central government run by socialist parties is a way of life. Many of them like living in the US precisely because of the entitlements Republicans want to limit. Granting amnesty to 20 million new voters in this demographic would be electoral suicide for Republicans.

    Obviously, attracting white working class voters whose interests no one is defending would be immensely easier than trying to out pander Democrats with immigrants.

    Here is the winning strategy:

    Propose a freeze on immigration (with the exceptions for O-1s and E-B5s) until the unemployment rate drops below 4%.

    This would be a brilliant way to attract working class voters while at the same time legitimizing immigration restrictions as something other than racist. The Democrats would be stuck having to choose support for immigration over the interests of American workers, thus delivering Ohio, Pennsylvania and possibly Michigan to the Republicans.

    Mark Levin blasts James Clyburn and Marcia Fudge for race baiting over Susan Rice opposition

    Mark Levin spent almost the entire first hour blasting race-baiting demagogues James Clyburn and Marcia Fudge for their stupidity and hypocrisy over the opposition to Susan Rice for Secretary of State. The clip below is his first segment in hour one and my favorite, but if you want more be sure and download his podcast later tonight. It won’t disappoint.


    (he needs to add Sharpton, Waters and others) Levin has backbone. HE COULD RUN. HE’D GET MY VOTE.

  • Patty

    If the GOP wants to win more black votes, it will need to get a lot more “racist.”

    The scare quotes are necessary because I don’t think the Republican Party is racist now (and, historically, the GOP has a lot less to answer for than the Democratic Party does).

    But that hasn’t stopped a lot of people from slandering Republicans as racist for one reason or another.

    Right now, many in Washington — particularly the leadership of the Congressional Black Caucus — insist that Republican attacks on U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice are racist and, yawn, sexist. The basis for this claim is that some Republicans are calling Rice unfit for the soon-to-be-vacated job of secretary of state. More specifically, they’re cross with Rice for what they contend to be her dishonest and incompetent handling of the Benghazi scandal.

    And, because Rice is a black woman, well, blah, blah, blah Racism! Sexism!

    Never mind that Republicans haven’t had a white secretary of state since Lawrence Eagleburger concluded his term two decades ago. Never mind that Republicans appointed the first black secretary of state ever (Colin Powell) and the first black female secretary of state ever (Condoleezza Rice, arguably the star of the GOP convention in August).

    Also, never mind that Rice’s handling of Benghazi — and several other matters — can quite defensibly be dubbed incompetent.

    But that doesn’t stop Democrats or liberal pundits from crying racism.

    Just consider some recent examples from over the summer. When Mitt Romney visited Michigan, he joked about not needing a birth certificate to prove he was from there. Not very funny? OK, sure. Poor taste? Eh, maybe, I guess. “The basest and the most despicable bigotry we might be able to imagine”? Errr, no. And yet that’s what one respected “expert” on race, Michael Eric Dyson, called it on MSNBC. Rather than show some skepticism at the claim, MSNBC host Alex Wagner agreed that Romney was “scraping the very bottom of this sort of racist other-ist narrative.”

    At the GOP convention, MSNBC host Chris Matthews explained that “Chicago” was a racially loaded code word. Fellow host Lawrence O’Donnell said Republican convention speakers were reaching “for every single possible racial double entendre they can find.” His sole proof? Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell made a joke about Obama playing a lot of golf.


  • Patty

    I say Throw up on Sharpton, throw it right back at him and do it now. Because it is time FOR SOME BACKBONE.

    Shove it in the face, now, I am not talking nasty I am saying give it to them and shut them up.

    Sharpton should be in prison! The cause of the black, white, yellow, and red unemployment sits smirking in the white house, living like a king off the sweat on our backs.

    Oh, yes. He has big plans, and you ain’t going to like them.

    I blame all of you people that voted for him, just so you could collect your gov’t check. Who the hel do you think is going to pay for you after we’re all unemployed and our nation is left bankrupt and in ruins????? M+o+r+o+n+s!

    There has always been a higher percentage of blacks and Hispanics unemployed when compared to whites (and Asians), and it becomes more pronounced as unemployment wears on or grows. That’s because it’s an employer’s market. They really get to pick and choose, much like a home buyer in this real estate market. And they pick and choose the people with a work ethic, a skill set, the ability to read and write, are more intelligent, more honest and who lack the propensity to sue at the drop of a feather.

  • Follow his rant to a logical conclusion – get coloreds out of gov’ment jobs. Get them into the competitive private sector and then see how well they fare LOL. And if we can get them out of gov’ment jobs then public services will improve.

    Sharpton is a fool. His followers deserve him. He also appears to have AIDS.
