Sharpton The Only Winner In Imus Affair


When the history of the whole Don Imus affair is written, we’ll see that the biggest mistake the radio talk-show host made, other than uttering his ridiculous comment about the Rutgers women’s basketball team in the first place, was to add to Al Sharpton’s aura of legitimacy by groveling before him on his radio show.

Sharpton is a race hustler. That’s it. One issue – race, and exploiting the sense of black victimization for his personal aggrandizement. I absolutely believe that Al Sharpton is a man with blood on his hands. His role in instigating racial violence in the Freddie’s Fashion Mart incident and the Crown Heights riots has been largely ignored by the media. So here we have the spectacle of the management of CBS falling to their knees to lick the boots of a man whose words very well may have helped to send innocent men to their graves.

You’re really looking good, CBS. This is only the beginning.

Some of my listeners have asked how in the world I can say that this incident is the beginning of an all-out push to damage or destroy conservative talk radio when it was Imus, a political liberal, who bit the dust. Simple: Imus was sacrificed. A “proof of concept” exercise, if you will.

Now that the Left knows Sharpton can move large corporate mountains with his racially charged dialogue, it’s time to use him to go after the real nemesis – talk radio. Sharpton is feeling very impressed with himself, I’m sure. Last week he told an anxiously awaiting media, “It is our feeling that this is only the beginning. We must have a broad discussion on what is permitted and not permitted in terms of the airwaves.”

Yup, you heard him – “what is permitted in terms of the airwaves.” Big Al is just the man to decide. Somewhere soon Sharpton will sit down with some cronies to review the talk radio landscape to figure out who needs to be the next to go. In the meantime, he’ll give some lip service to the cause of cleaning up rap lyrics, but know this: talk radio is the target. Conservative talk radio. Liberals can’t succeed at the medium, so it must be destroyed.

Silver lining? I think there well might be. Perhaps hundreds of thousands of people – maybe much more – are going to be tuning in to their local talk stations to see if the situation is really as hideous as Sharpton and his sycophants allege. Leftist websites are going to drive even more people our way.

What will these people hear? They’ll hear logical and fact-based arguments against the anti-individual, anti-liberty cult of liberalism. They’ll hear ideas and concepts presented that they haven’t previously been exposed. They’ll hear information about Democrat schemes and dreams in Washington that will make their blood curdle.

Here’s just one example: Read the mainstream newspapers and listen to liberal talking heads on television and you’ll soon generate a burning hatred of those evil people who constitute the mysterious “richest Americans.” Listen to talk radio and you’ll soon learn that a huge percentage of these people vilified for their income levels are actually the small businessmen and women of America – and that they are considered to be rich because all their business as well as personal income is reported on their personal income tax returns.

You’ll learn that these people – the people targeted for huge tax increases by the Left – actually provide between 70% and 80% of all jobs in America (perhaps your job). And then you’re going to start wondering what a tax increase might do to them – and to the people who work for them.

This, of course, is not healthy for liberals. Their recourse is to shut down these channels of dangerous information. Sharpton is showing them the way.

Just a few more thoughts. I want to make sure to give Sharpton and his goons as much to go over as possible.

You might have thought that Sharpton and Imus would have gotten along famously – after all, they seem to have the same hairdresser. (That’s not a racist statement, is it? I mean, after all, one of them is black and the other one is white.)
