I think this is sad. Not sure what to say, but Rev. Al Sharpton stood on a stage Saturday and certainly did nothing to improve the political or racial discussion in the United States.
Jeff Dunetz at Big Government put together a comparison of the rallies in Washington, D.C. I did not watch any of the news coverage from Saturday, and I don’t listen or watch Beck anyway … but it certainly seems the good reverend stepped in it by attacking the crowd over at the mall.
Does this quote leave a bad taste in your mouth? My emphasis in bold.
“They may have the mall, but we have the message. They may have the platform, but we have the dream.” Sharpton and other activists gathered to commemorate the 47th anniversary of MLK’s “I Have a Dream” speech, then joined hands and walked 3 miles to the site of King’s future memorial. “This is our day and we ain’t giving it away,” said Sharpton.
Maybe the quote is taken out of context…
