Over the years I have heard Imus say some racist and some downright raunchy material on his show, and then he does good things for people with his foundation and ranch to help children.
He shouldn't have said what he did. And, I might add, black entertainers and others in the black community shouldn't use that language, but they do and Sharpton and his ilk aren't attempting to ruin their lives. It's hypocrisy on his part to go after one, but not the other, and he won't let racial wounds heal. Why doesn't he go after them, to clean up the pottie-mouths in the black community?
Sharpton has chosen a prominent white figure because he's an easier target who is not likely to turn on him and cause bodily harm to him or his family. Thus, we could say that his attack against Imus and his failure to go against the homeboys that throw around the same language, in the streets,...and on the airwaves, to be cowardly as well as hypocritical.
And I have heard the Reverend Al Sharpton say some racist and low down material about whites and others, and he even was involved in the Tawana Brawley case in which a black teen claimed to be raped by six white men, some police officers. There were no idictments and the grand jury investigation concluded that the charges should be dropped as there was no evidence.
A cruel and mendacious racist with skeletons's in his closetwho calls himself a man of God? How can that be? How could one use Sharpton and religious in the same sentence in any serious manner: he is demagogue who uses religion as a tool to spread a political agenda.
Many people make mistakes, apologize, change their ways and move on. I might listen Imus one day, if he's not driver off the air. But I will never listen to Al Sharpton. He continues to trip over the rock of his own pride, to believe that he is right in all things, and fling his hypocrisy out there in the same way as did the race mongers of old. He's nothing more than a black KKK-style grand wizard, a hypocrite.
Michelle Malkin weighs in with Imas or Rap? The Culture of "Bitches, Hos, and Niggas":
"Let's stipulate: I have no love for Don Imus, Al Sharpton, or Jesse Jackson. A pox on all their race-baiting houses."
I agree 100%!
I say irony AND hypocrisy!
