Here’s
an interesting back story to MSNBC and racial arsonist Al
Sharpton.Back in March of 2000, MSNBC
morning host Joe Scarborough was Congressman Joe Scarborough  and he
introduced House Resolution 270  condemning Al Sharpton as a racist and a bigot:

106th CONGRESS

2d Session

H. CON. RES. 270

Condemning the racist and anti-Semitic views of the Reverend Al Sharpton

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

March 8, 2000

Mr. SCARBOROUGH submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
Condemning the racist and anti-Semitic views of the Reverend Al Sharpton

Whereas the Congress strongly rejects the racist and incendiary actions of the Reverend Al Sharpton;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton has referred to members of the Jewish faith as `bloodsucking [J]ews’, and `Jew bastards’;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton has referred to members of the Jewish faith as `white interlopers’ and `diamond merchants’;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton was found guilty of defamation by a
jury in a New York court arising from the false accusation that former
Assistant District Attorney Steven Pagones, who is white, raped and
assaulted a fifteen year-old black girl;

Whereas, to this day, the Reverend Al Sharpton has refused to accept
responsibility and expresses no regret for defaming Mr. Pagones;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton’s vicious verbal anti-Semitic attacks
directed at members of the Jewish faith, and in particular, a Jewish
landlord, arising from a simple landlord-tenant dispute with a black
tenant, incited widespread violence, riots, and the murder of five
innocent people;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton’s fierce demagoguery incited violence,
riots, and murder in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, New York,
following the accidental death of a black pedestrian child hit by the
motorcade of Orthodox Rabbi Menachem Schneerson;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton led a protest in the Crown Heights
neighborhood and marched next to a protester with a sign that read,
`The White Man is the Devil’;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton has insulted members of the Jewish
faith by challenging Jews to violence and stating to Jews to `pin down’
their yarmulkes; and

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton has practiced the politics of racial
division and made inflammatory remarks against whites by characterizing
the death of Amadou Diallo as a `racially motivated police
`assassination’: Now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That the Congress–
      (1)
      condemns the practices of the Reverend Al Sharpton, which seek to
      divide Americans on the basis of race, ethnicity, and religion;
      (2)
      expresses its outrage over the violence that has resulted due to the
      Reverend Al Sharpton’s incendiary words and actions; and
      (3)
      fervently urges elected officials and public servants, who have
      condoned and legitimized the Reverend Al Sharpton’s incendiary words
      and actions, to publicly denounce and condemn such racist and
      anti-Semitic views.

The bill was sent to committee where it died.

I wonder if Morning Joe still feels the same way about “Rev” Al?
Sharpton hasn’t changed. Bu then again Joe has—he no longer is a
congressman from Florida, he is the morning host of the same network
that hired Sharpton.

The “Reverend” Al is a regular guest on Joe’s show. Why doesn’t he (as the bill he introduced says):

expresses [his] outrage over the violence that has resulted due to the
Reverend Al Sharpton’s incendiary words and actions; and fervently urge elected officials and public servants, who have
condoned and legitimized the Reverend Al Sharpton’s incendiary words
and actions, to publicly denounce and condemn such racist and
anti-Semitic views.

Why doesn’t he ask the “Preacher” who ignores the commandment against “bearing false witness” if his outrage against George Zimmerman is over the top hypocritical considering Al’s racist track record? What the matter Joe….cat’s got your tongue? What’s wrong Joe–you are never too shy to blast the conservative position (even though you claim to be one).
