Al Sharpton: Black Voters Should Punish GOP ~ HUH????

Al Sharpton: Black Voters Should Punish GOP NM

Civil rights leader Al Sharpton said Thursday black voters should punish Republicans who fail to show for presidential candidates' forums hosted by the National Urban League and the NAACP.

"We can only assume you weren't courting us," Sharpton said. "Republicans have to lay out their policies and court the African-American vote. We need to have our interests debated in the market place."

Sharpton noted there won't be another NAACP or Urban League conference before the presidential primaries.

"When I was in high school, I may not have gone to the prom with the girl I wanted, but with the girl I could get," he said, suggesting Republicans leave black voters little choice but to vote for a Democrat.

Sharpton was among a panel of black leaders, political strategists from both major parties and journalists who discussed the black vote in the 2008 presidential election at the Urban League's national conference here.

Five presidential candidates - four Democrats and one Republican - are scheduled to address the conference Friday. Among them are top-tier Democrats Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, and John Edwards. The lone Republican is Rep. Duncan Hunter of California.

Earlier this month, all eight Democratic candidates participated in a forum at the NAACP meeting in Detroit. The only Republican was Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado, a long-shot candidate.

Shannon Reeves, director of state and local development for the Republican National Committee, said his role in the RNC was to get them to understand the black community.

"There are some in our party who don't want to associate with our community," he said to groans from the crowd. He added that "black folks had to kick the door open. The Democratic Party didn't open it wide and say come on in."

Urban League president Marc Morial said black voters deserve more than "drive-by politics and last-minute appeals to churches." But, he admitted, "sometimes we aren't good about getting out to vote." He said no candidate has talked about black economic development, which is the civil rights organization's major thrust.

Wild Thing's comment...........

So when are the Democrats going to apologize and offer reparations for basically opposing every attempt to free the slaves, for implementing Jim Crow laws, and opposing civil rights, hmmm?

Sharpton is so stupid, not ALL black voters support the likes of Al. I listen to a lot of talk shows and there are a lot of blacks that call in and are embarrased by the likes of Sharpton. Yes most vote Demorat but Sharpton wants to keep race baiting them and for many it works. Only liberals would use the fact of sex and race to make an issue.

Al Sharpton is a big bag of wind.
He talks a big talk, but he can't pass the mustard.
They want equality and this man and others like him, continue to try and keep them "separate" from the big bad whities.
I hate to tell them this, but we aren't big and we aren't bad.
We want a peaceful coexistence with them. We don't want fights.
But they continually put themselves in another world, another part of the city and refuse to assimilate because of people like this.
They don't need protection from us.
They fought so hard for desegregation, but they continue to live as sepratists.
Al Sharpton can kiss my butt.

... wanna know a secret? The GOP only receives 3% of the black votes come Election Day, so what do we have to lose Sharp Tongue? You also refer to Condi Rice, Clarence Thomas, JC Watts and Lynn Swann as sell outs! - It takes a ghetto 2007

The Blacks are just one of many "voting blocs" that march in step to the Democrap voting machine. They are promised something for nothing, given a few tidbits, then ignored until the next election cycle. They are basically stupid and no matter what the Repubs try to do, they will make little or no difference to Blacks. All the Blacks I know vote straight Democrap. They really think the Repubs want to roll back the Civil Rights Act. That is what Black leaders like Sharpton tells them. So like a good tribe of non-thinkers they march off to the polls and vote Democrap.

How did all of this get so convoluted. It was the Republicans that fought a war to free the slaves in the first place. In the 1864 election, the democrats were running on, a stop the war campaign, and sue for peace with the South., Had the democrats won there would still be slavery in this country, that really would have pleased Reverand Al.

The 64 voting rights act was passed because of Republicans, again the democrats were the true racists and wanted to keep segregation. Algores' daddy was a big proponent of segregation as was the Clinton mentor Senator Fullbright ... who were democrats.

It was a Republican President who sent in the 101 Airborne to Little Rock Arkansas, and deactivated the Arkansas National Guard to ensure Civil Rights of an individual, who was Black, against the advice of Democrats.

How did history get so twisted that the demos can lie with impunity and worse, it is believed.

The Black leaders talk about MLK and his peaceful demostrations, I don't ever remember a peaceful demonstration. It always turned into a riot. They keep reminding us of Bull Connor, well he has been replaced by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and things haven't changed.

The democrats have been buying the Black vote for the last 40 + years and that is the only reason the democrats have gotten the Black vote. They promise them whatever it takes to get their vote, and like sheep they believe it.

The democrats started the war on poverty, some 40+ years ago and they still haven't won it yet, and nobody is suggesting a pull out either. After 40+ years the democrats have managed to decimate the Black family to the point that only families in their community are almost all Single parent homes, but if you stick with the democrats we will make sure you 'get yours'. i.e., your payment for keeping the democrats in power.

But the sorriest thing of all is that the Republicans do not refute it, they do not challange these false charges of racism and biggotry. These charges and accusations are made all the time, year in and year out and the republicans say nothing, the left teaches the lie to the new students who don't know any better, and don't bother to find out. It is a lie that has been perpetuated for 40 years and has been repeated so long it is now being accepted as truth.

Al Sharpton is a schil and a liar.

I've always thought of Ramsey Clark as being the true shill. Sharpton is only one of three Race Warlord Poverty Pimps who are mere puppets of the Communist or Islamist communities in our nation. Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakahn are the other two shills. Thankfully not all are taken in by "their leaders", some even reject them, but not nearly enough. Once again the liberals in congress perpetuate the separation by creating class warfare and devisive programs that promote segregation rather than integration, to the point of making it a crime to speak out aginst such practices. Mark sees this just like I do, call me a bigot if you like, but we as a nation can't survive with the 'nation within a nation' mentality of the Democrats that fosters no integration from the black community just to curry their votes. They are owned by the Democrats just as surely as they were owned by some plantation owners 200 years ago.

Tom, yep and one of the questions the night of the stupid dem debate was about reparations. Good grief enough already.

Posted by: Wild Thing at July 28, 2007 12:33 AM

Mark, applause!!! I would pay to see a Republican go one on one with Sharpton or Jesse Jackson or any of these POS that lie day in day out.

Posted by: Wild Thing at July 28, 2007 12:35 AM

Jack, AMEN I agree with what you said.

They ARE owned by the left today just as they were owned back then.
