WTF?! NBC Enlists Al Sharpton to Instruct Rush Limbaugh on “Civility”

By Debbie Schlussel

Did David Gregory, host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” enlist racist bigot (and former coke dealer) Al Sharpton to instruct Rush Limbaugh on how to engage in “civility” and “civilized speech,” yesterday morning (video, below)?  Really?  What’s next–enlisting Ron Jeremy and Kim Kardashian to lecture us on modesty?

HUH? “Former” Coke Dealer & Eternal Racist Al Sharpton Instructs Rush Limbaugh on “Civilized Speech”

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Yup, the same Al Sharpton whose “civilized” anti-Semitic speech led to the murder of Yankel Rosenbaum of Crown Heights.  The same Al Sharpton whose “civilized speech” against “Zionist interlopers” incited a riot and murder of at least seven Black people at Freddy’s Fashion Mart.  Hmmm . . . how many people has Rush Limbaugh killed by calling a law student (too busy demanding $3,000 birth control to study) a “slut”?  NONE.  How many people has Al Sharpton’s “civilized speech” murdered?  At least eight Jews and Black Hispanics . . . and counting.  This is a guy whose “civilized speech” led to not just one–but TWO!–killing sprees in America.

And that’s not to mention the Tawana Brawley ordeal, in which Sharpton’s “civility” including the propagation of false stories of “racism” against innocent prosecutors and police when Brawley’s entire race-baiting fairy tale (as repeatedly broadcast by Sharpton) was a fraud.  And he knew it.  But he engaged in this “civilized speech” anyway.  How many of Rush Limbaugh’s statements have led to guilty verdicts requiring payments to prosecutors for defamation?  NONE, unlike with Sharpton.

Al Sharpton’s “Civilized Speech” w/ Hate Crime Co-Hoaxer Tawana Brawley

And instead of facing up to these misdeeds in very uncivilized speech–to which Rush Limbaugh’s accurate comments don’t even come close–Sharpton got away with his BS and was able to–with a straight face–talk about how civilized he is because of his friendship and appearances with Newt Gingrich.  Disgusting.

He got away with this absurdity because not one person on this crappy show–“Meet the Press”–sharing the table with Weird Al had the guts to point out even one of these events in the Sharpton repertoire.  Not the Wall Street Journal’s Peggy Noonan, who was too busy attacking Rush for “words [that] don’t belong in any public debate in America.” (Did she ever criticize Obama for hanging out with rappers who declare their hatred for women?)  Not David Gregory (whose own father was a “Zionist Interloper”), who invited this racist bigot onto the show to discuss the “Politics of Civility” topic.  Not Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, who engaged in the sickening display of not only agreeing with Al Sharpton’s phony bluster but praising him.  See, conservative Republicans can be complete morons, too, and this idiotette Blackburn is Exhibit A.  Is she really that stupid?  That ignorant?  Sadly, yes.  She’s a bloviating airhead. E. J. Dionne, another pretentious blowhard, also said nothing to put Sharpton on the spot, but instead used it as an opportunity to attack both Rush and Mitt Romney. Huh?

Here’s a little refresher course on “The Civilized Speech of Al Sharpton,” since revisionist history is the order of the day on “Meet the Press” and since Peggy Noonan and Marsha Blackburn–who pretend to be conservatives–haven’t a clue about anything:

* At a 1991 funeral of a Black child accidentally killed by an out-of-control car driven by a Jew, Sharpton delivered this eulogy:

Talk about how Oppenheimer in South Africa sends diamonds straight to Tel Aviv and deals with the diamond merchants right here in Crown Heights.

Oppenheimer is the Jewish family that is a big player in the diamond industry, and Crown Heights is a Chassidic Jewish community, some of whose residents are in the diamond industry. It was clear he was denouncing the Jews. Sharpton spoke of how these “diamond merchants” had “the blood of innocent babies” on their hands and exhorted the crowd to commit violence in the Crown Heights, Brooklyn Jewish community:

If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.

Shouting, “No Justice, No Peace” with the funeral crowd, he incited riots in Crown Heights where a mob shouting, “Kill the Jews!” surrounded Jewish rabbinical student Yankel Rosenbaum and stabbed him to death.

* In 1995, Sharpton incited the shooting and arson murder of seven employees of Freddy’s Fashion Mart. When the Black landlord raised the rent on Freddy’s White (and Jewish) owner, he was forced to raise the rent on his Black subtenant. Sharpton organized a protest, at which he announced:

We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.

Sharpton stood by and nodded in agreement as speakers and the crowd shouted: “Burn down the Jew store!” “We’re going to see that this cracker suffers.”

A protester shot four employees and set fire to Freddy’s. It burnt to the ground and seven employees–all of them minorities–died.

Al Sharpton is the poster child of uncivilized speech. His speech is vile, laden with racism and bigotry, and incites multiple murders.

Is accurately calling a woman–who openly whines about how she needs $3,000 to have sex while in law school–a “slut” and a “prostitute” the same thing?

Not even close. And anyone who thinks so is just as despicable as Al Sharpton.

We know who needs lessons in civilized speech. And here’s a tip: it ain’t Rush Limbaugh.

Hey Conservatives, if you’re one of those who say that Rush was out of line for saying (rightly) that a single female who needs $3K worth of BC for her three years in Law School is a slut, YOU’RE part of the problem and weak to boot. Pandering and cowering to the disgusting Left AGAIN!! And so many so-called Conservative “warriors” have!

If you’re falling for the fake and canny Democrat/Commie campaign called “The War on Women” and how the GOP hates BC YOU’RE part of the problem and three times as stupid and woefully uninformed.

If you don’t get out of your own way and take on these lying Commie creeps with their own type of disgusting vitriol, YOU’RE part of the problem and why these Commies run away with it and get away with (un)clever lies and obfuscation.

Conservatives WON’T wake up and be bold (like DS) and cram it right back down their throats with their own misdeeds like they should and that is WHY Obama-Putin may get 4+ more years.

This late winter I have been more disgusted with the so-called Conservatives who fall for the Commie “bait-and-switch” than with the Commie lies and smear campaigns to hide the destruction by the Commies! It’s disgusting and shows that Conservatives let the Commies beat ’em and confuse ’em.

I swear if I had not already been tricked by the Left it might have been tempting for me to go back to those lying, mental-cased losers!!! But I don’t like to be used or zoomed because I have a brain of my own and hate hypocrisy just as much as lying fools.

And THAT is why a disgusting race-pimp like Weird Al Sharpton has been given legitimacy.

Noonan has already irretrievably embarrassed herself with her Obama-Putin love and Blackburn is now a disappointment too!

Skunky on March 12, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    Not this kid, Skunky. I’ve already dropped JCP and other stores from my shopping list. If they dropped Rush, then I drop them. I wish there was a list available of all the sponsors who dropped Rush. I would be glad to notify every one of them that they have lost my business.

Right on Debbie!!! This bloviating fool is more racist than anyone I know!!!

    Nice one, MRS.
    What next, Mel Gibson preaching to us about anti-Semitism?
    Or the KKK on bigotry?
    The absurdity in this is so apparent to us, but not to these high priests of media?!

    theShadow on March 13, 2012 at 1:04 am

Great article Debbie, as always.. And Skunky is excellent also… But seriously, has anyone watched “Meet the Press” in the last 30 years???

PDMac60 on March 12, 2012 at 1:12 pm

I am absolutely disappointed in Marsha Blackburn. She takes her marching orders from talk show host Steve Gill far too often.
Blackburn was far better on the State level. Blackburn and Governor Bill Haslam are both tools of the Washington establishment and Mitt Romney.

Confederate South on March 12, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Well written article Debbie, and I pity some of us within the black community who supports this guy Al Sharpton, he certainly does NOT represent or speak for me as a black person. Since I live in the New York, NY area, I remember the Crown Heights incident a little over 20 years ago, you see I only lived a few miles from Crown Heights at that time and some parts of that community was completely polluted and also some vandalizim.

More and more us black people have to distance ourselves from the ilks of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Luis Farrakhan, Jeremiah Wright, etc. just like the muslim community should distance, denounce and QUIT support islamic jihadist groups worldwide.

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on March 12, 2012 at 3:21 pm

I guess if anyone on the show had brought up Tawana Brawley they would have been attacked for ‘disrespecting’ her just like Sandra Flake was ‘disrespected’.

Little Al on March 12, 2012 at 4:44 pm

The Rush Limbaugh episode has been so beaten to death by the left that it should have dropped off the map. Sandra Fluke is a thirty year old woman, and not a teen. She was an activist at a Catholic university for an issue that she knew would be deeply offensive to it. Also, the nearly immediate appearances on various media outlets and a presidential phone call should have tipped any non-partisan observer off that the Sandra Fluke was not acting spontaneously, but according to script. Finally, if the worst thing to happen to a woman in her life is being called a slut or prostitute(remember middle school)they have had a pretty good life. It is amazing how feminists become attracted to Victorian Era rectitude when it is convenient.

Worry01 on March 12, 2012 at 5:16 pm

What should be asked of Democrats is why they are attracted to the likes of Al Sharpton? He has spent his entire life as a professional race baiter. Even so, especially in New York State, Democrats feel it is necessary to kiss this Al Sharpton’s ring and tolerate his absurd statements. With his long history of racial incitement and gross antisemitism, why would any legitimate politician seek his favor? It is reminiscent of old time Southern politicians seeking the favor of the Ku Klux Klan, and just as nauseating.

Worry01 on March 12, 2012 at 5:25 pm

The Daily Rash said it best in it’s hilarious story: “Al Sharpton, America’s First Illiterate News Anchor”

Laura on March 12, 2012 at 5:44 pm

Sharpton is typical of the “left’s” bellicosity and hypocrisy. Can you imagine what would be emanating from those RE-gressives, had this Afghanistan incident occurred under George Bush’s watch? How many days do you think the NY Times would have kept this bit-of-news on its front page like it did Abu Garaib? At least the inmates there weren’t “murdered.”

Then, it was the indictment of an entire “evil” ideology, as opposed to a single action as one rogue soldier- right?

Why don’t we hear “the war is lost,” emitting from that pie-hole known as Harry Reid mouth? The media should be arrested for negligence for not pursuing Obama on this issue!

Marsha Blackburn is my Congressman.
See her “blatantly unconstitutional” votes at :

mickeywhite on March 12, 2012 at 8:06 pm


I voted for Marsha once but I now see her as doing Steve Gill’s bidding. Steve has the early morning show at WLAC. I quit listening to see because I have asked him on several occasions to interview Debbie Schlussel on his show because Debbie is far more knowledgeable than Bridgette Gabrielle, John Guandola, Patrick Poole, Steve Emerson, and a host of other so called experts.
Ann Coulter an expert,give me a break. Ann is too much of a damn Yankee.
Marsha’s best work was when she enlisted attorney Kline Preston to represent her when former governor Don Sundquist tried to bring a state income tax to Tennessee. Sundquist quaked in his boots and gave up when he saw Kline Preston coming.

Rev. Al- the snitchs’ pal, never heard the ghetto chant:”” snitches end up in ditches!?”

Bobby99 on March 12, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Debbie, You outlined the Rev. Al’s lack of credentials for his appearance on both “Meet the Press”, and as a host for MSNBC, very nicely. Unless, of course, Meet the Press and Al’s daily show are deemed to be comedic in nature. (The term comedy is used very loosely these days, i.e. Bill Maher.) Unfortunately, everything that you’ve mentioned about Al is well documented and sad, but, true. And, yet, this once great National Broadcasting Company places this big faker on a pedestal, and everyone is so afraid to say boo about it. Gregory, et al, should be ashamed of what they’ve created. Oh, yes, this is the group that’s so critical of Rush. Such hypocrisy. Shameful, to say the least.

Neils60 on March 12, 2012 at 10:38 pm

Remember the “one” is above this and will set the example.

Gotta love the double standard, it may hust be as big as the race card.

Ender on March 12, 2012 at 10:43 pm

While I was watching the video, I was laughing at “Weird Al” Sharpton. Why? Read this post by Debbie. Excellent take down of Sharpton as well on David Gregory and the two fake conservatives on the panel for their moral cowardice. This post is required reading for the few people that watched yesterday’s edition of “Meet the Press”.

JeffE on March 12, 2012 at 10:53 pm

Make you wonder what Rev Al has on NBC, otherwise this idiot would never have gotten air time anywhere, he is a joke.

Jo on March 12, 2012 at 10:54 pm

Maybe they (Meet the Press) hired him for comedy releif?
…the Jester in the Court?
But than again, that whole ‘court’ is a joke, so nevermind.

theShadow on March 13, 2012 at 12:44 am

Well, look for Rush to turn this around in one of his ‘demonstrating absurdity by being absurd’ routines.

Infidel on March 13, 2012 at 7:08 am

Al Sharp-ton makes Kwame Kill-Patrick seem like a modest person in comparison. I hate ’em both. Bitches

Steve Epps on March 13, 2012 at 12:04 pm

When does telling the truth become uncivil?
In a time of universal deception?

George Orwell was a Watchman on the wall, trying to warn us about the thought police and Big Brother taking total control over the individual with their lies and enablers.

He just was off on the date it would happen,[1984] but it is happening today. Insanity and lunacy appears to be the norm in public society today….

Who cares? on March 13, 2012 at 12:13 pm

Great article Debbie as usual and Skunky great begining post. Al not so Sharpton has been nothing but a racist scum sucking douchebag from the word go. He has made it his theme in life to fan the flames of racial unrest in this country and pawns himself as a spokesman for the black community. Utter rubbish. Weird Al DOES NOT speak for me and other black people like me. He has a long history of misdeads that Debbie has put out for those who don’t know everything about him. It’s not suprising that David(Ceasar)Gregory would put this putz on his show to give him a platform to vomit forth his stupidity. It’s also not suprising when dipshots like Hannity and O’Reilly put this baffoon on. All three of those morons (especially the last two)get on my nerves with their shuckin’ and jivin’ routines. Skunky you are right about Peggy Noonan. She reminds me of an older version of that dope Lizzy Hasslebeck with her lack of courage in the face of liberal drivel. Congresswoman Blackburn is just another weakkneed RINO put on a liberal shows panel. Can’t have strong conservatives on these shows now can we. That’s why I don’t even bother watching.

Ken b on March 13, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Rush was right – Sandra Fluke is a SLUT! A condom costs about $1 if she needs $3000 she has to be spending the better part of her day on her back!

MRobs on March 13, 2012 at 1:23 pm

IMHO Noonan’s IQ must be about one point lower than Sharpton’s. How about the nickname “Noonancompoop”

CornCoLeo on March 13, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Having Al Sharpton lecture us on civility is like putting Micheal Vick in charge of PETA.

smy1965 on March 13, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Calling a woman who sleeps around “a slut” is a statement of fact. Rush Limbaugh apologized – he demonstrated a good deal more class than his critics.

Then again we all know there is a double standard on what conservatives are allowed to say in America – while leftist racist bigots like Al Sharpton can get away it. And somewhere, the truth become a casualty.

NormanF on March 13, 2012 at 2:45 pm

I lost what tiny bit of respect I had for Gregory several months back when he had Boehnor (I think it was) on his show, and the first question he hit him with was whether he was going to work to squelch any mention of obummer’s eligibility issue from the public discourse. Of course Boehner waffled repeatedly. I wish the repubs had the gonads to fire back and quit letting these marxist MSM’s define the entire groundwork for the narrative. A US rep with any backbone and brains would say “Look, I’m an elected member of Congress. The textbook definition of that title tells me I’m elected to represent my constituents in the matters of proposing and voting on legislation. Nowhere in that definition does it say I am expected to fall in line behind, and support a POS, sorry POTUS that I fundamentally disagree with and believe is intentionally destroying the personal freedoms and economic opportunities that our forefathers fought for and enshrined in the constitution. Speaking of the constitution, in the oath of office I solemnly swear to support and defend our constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. No mention is made of allegiance to the person of the POTUS, only to the office and responsibilities of the president, as strictly defined within the constitution. All articles of the constitution are to be interpreted in the manner as best understood to be in the framers’ intent. It is incumbent that not only the legislation passed by the congress meet with the original intent of the constitution, but that all actions of the government, or the public in regards to its electoral authority, be judged as to whether it agrees with the true letter of the constitution and that through malfeasance or ignorance an element of the government does not constitute a domestic enemy to the original intent of the constitution. If any action or circumstance concerning any elected governmental official appears to conflict with the strict interpretation of the constitution, it is incumbent on THAT OFFICIAL to provide such proof, as it may relate to the constitutional requirement, that no offense has occurred. Futhermore, it is unconscienable that any elected colleague of such an official could tend to the expansion of entitlements or other such unintended use of government power while a fundamental question of constitutional malfeasance on the part of that official lies unresolved. To that end, any question of the eligibility for the office of POTUS is not only NOT unseemly and trivial but a matter of constitutional duty when said POTUS has exerted considerable effort to obscure information which would serve to confirm or deny his constitutional eligibility. In short, Mr Gregory, questioning this marxist fraud’s eligibility may make no sense in a world where an incompetent and irresponsible MSM shirks their responsibility to uncover the facts on their favored extremist left-wing elected cabal, and any effort by the intrepid individual to expose the truth will thus surely fail. It is not, however, wrong unless every other requirement and guarantee of the constitution is to be similarly dismissed. Care to make the freedom of the press the next casualty of this onslaught? I’d say it’s not doing the USA a whole lot of benefit the way you in the MSM operate currently.”

Sorry for the rant. I just get bent around the axle when “conservatives” dismiss such fundamental problems, and refuse to admit that it only boils down to the absolute worst kind of realpolitik, and repubs refuse to force these “impartial interviewers” to keep their stupid line of questioning within the realm of reality.
As for Gregory’s show, one glimpse of that race-baiter and I couldn’t take any more of it.

oldblue on March 13, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Al Sharpton is the poster boy to the black “hypocrisy”‘ honest dialogue missing from an overwhelming amount of so-called black leaders, of which the only thing they lead is speaking up whtn a red camera light is on. Sharpton also has lost so much weight, he looks like a used Q-tip pulled out of the wrong body orrifice.

MC Hammer on March 13, 2012 at 3:11 pm

So, is Sharpton serving as the “bad example”?

Paul on March 14, 2012 at 7:59 pm

Well Debs,

A drug dealer is one who has been convicted of dealing drugs, and from what I have researched, Al Sharpton does not qualify. There is a conversation, on camera of Mr. Sharpton HAVING A CONVERSATION with some FBI stooge about buying drugs. In other words, he was caught on camera doing what he is still doing 30 years later…talking.

Of course I would not expect a Natasha, such as yourself, who grew up reading Pravda to understand the American Bill of Rights.
