WATCH: Rev. Al Sharpton’s futile attempt to smear Glenn

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Over the last couple of weeks, Glenn has called for a new civil rights movement, citing the IRS targeting of conservatives and attacks on people of faith as just a few examples of civil rights violations. And now it seems at least one person is not happy with Glenn’s analysis. MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton attempted to smear Glenn on his show last week for daring to compare today’s injustice to the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s.

Touting his civil rights background, Rev. Sharpton said he was the youth director for the organization founded by Martin Luther King Jr., adding that he is still involved with the group.

SHARPTON: I personally get offended by this. I’ve been in civil rights all my life.  I was made youth director of the organization Dr. King founded when I was 12 years old.  I’ve been in it ever since and to equate civil rights to fighting on these issues that have nothing to do with any rights that are denied and it’s all about their polarization is really offensive. I mean, we can disagree but you don’t miscast things as something that it’s not.

Rev. Sharpton is specifically referring to a segment from the Glenn Beck Program last week. After appearing at the press conference in Washington D.C., Glenn told Stu:

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

GLENN: This is a civil rights movement and it’s time for us to start moving as a civil rights movement. We have to be willing to have the dogs be unleashed on us because, believe me, after what I saw today on the way they’re handling things at the capital, oh, you’re not very far from having the same kind of oppression coming our way.

After playing that clip of Glenn on his MSNBC show, Politics Nation, Rev. Sharpton had this to say:

SHARPTON: It’s unbelievable. He’s talking about imaginary unleashed dogs, when real heroes of the civil rights movement actually had to confront those dangers.  Yesterday Beck made his case at a rally in Washington, but even as he talked about civil rights, the slogans on the signs told the story of fear and paranoia.  It was similar to what we saw at previous Tea Party rallies.

“Oh, man,” Pat said. “Fear and paranoia. There’s nothing really going on. The IRS isn’t really targeting them.”

“The IRS isn’t targeting. The administration hasn’t done everything in its power to harm those. He has labeled people enemies,” Glenn said. “That’s not an open dialog, an open society by any stretch of the imagination.”

Aside from the IRS, we now also know that the NSA surveillance is beyond our wildest imagination – but, like the Reverend said, there is nothing to see here.

“It is truly amazing where we’re going,” Glenn said. “Tell me about starting a business. Tell me about it. How many people down right now are stopping their jokes about, I don’t want to talk to you on the phone, I don’t want to have this conversation on e‑mail, and it’s nothing – you’re not a terrorist, but you are being made to feel like a terrorist.”

“You are being made to feel like a second‑class citizen,” he concluded. “It is the civil rights movement. It is. We’re just early. As I said, we are just early.”

    We are seeing the division of the nation, or I should say, the last stages of it in which one or more classes or groups of people are made ‘more equal’ than others. 

    It has become a sad day in the Republic when equality now means ‘second-class’ citizens instead of ‘all being equal.’

    • americanathlete

       Sharpton and the liberals think they are above all conservatives

      • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

        Crazy as this may sound, I have come to the conclusion they have convinced themselves that extreme leftist ideology is ‘normal, conservative America.’

        They honestly act that way, as if it is their normal, when the rest of America calls it for the hypocrisy it is.

        Here is an interesting bit of history for the term ‘Cracker’ when used in a derogatory manner: it did not originate here in the states, Shakespearean plays in 1595 contained the word in reference to people befouling the air of others due to their foul vocabulary.

      you are right. our country is going to hell. we need people to take a stand and throw out or impeach theres fools in washingtn. throw the commies out of this country. our grandfathers are doing back flips in there graves., on what is happing in this country. and the people setting on there ass and doing nothing.

  • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Al Sharpton is madder than anything for one basic reason: the entire ideological lie on which his message and ethos is founded upon has been shattered by hard reality. 

    He continues to play up the ‘hate, bigotry, race, class, social, economic’ warfare cards to continue to demand that certain groups are empowered over others in the name of ‘equality.’ What he fails to tell people about is that when one groups is deemed by a government to be more equal than others, they have created a new system of oppression against a new generation of people.

    Al can be annoying but goddammit hes right here, its really offensive to compare your fake (I dont like the party in the WH so I will claim persecution) persecution with the his (klan lynching, jim crow) persecution

    • Sam Fisher

      Because using the IRS as a political weapon is not persecution.
      There is more to it than not liking Obama’s party you boob but I guess you
      hateful liberals can care less that the government is going after conservative groups.
      So take your holier than you crap and shove it. 

      • Kyle Ely

        Spare me the “political weapon” bs when you apply for a 501(c) (4) your suppose to be scrutinized by the IRS cause your claiming that in exchange for tax exemption status and not disclosing donors you won’t be political so political names like “tea party” need to be highlighted and as a member of the bubble you probably didn’t hear this but liberal groups got targeted too

        • Sam Fisher

          One group that’s it out of how many Conservative groups so please spare me your stupidity.

        • greywolfrs

          B S, liberal groups were targeted FAR less and no where near as often, don’t let that fact get in your way. Moron.

    There goes Sharpton doctoring the tape of Glenn on his show again.  Did anyone else catch the full clip of Sharpton’s show?  He edited out all of the black men on stage by narrowing the video image to focus only on the white men in the clip.  That’s not surprising considering if you enter the words “doctoring the tape” into any search engine the first 90 out of 100 results are all related to NBC and MSNBC lying. 

    On a lighter note, I have captured another Blaze troll for everyone.  That makes eight now.  These guttersnipes have no idea how easy it is to have them walk into the trap.  Below is the mug shot of the latest one captured.  He goes by “B.D” (you can only imagine what that stands for).  This one goes by “Jadedfate”on The Blaze. 

  • landofaahs

    Sharpton is a race hustling loud mouth.  Tawana Brawley.  I can think of no more a slimey ghetto trash than that scum.  O.K. Now that I have pointed out his good points, let’s point out his deficiencies…….

  • landofaahs

    The liberals bought off Sharpton with the plumb job on NBC so he could pay his back unpaid taxes.  Remember when Hillary was running against Obama and Sharpton said that Obama “wasn’t down for da struggle”.  He made them pay him for his support.  Al is a greasy parasite.

  • Sam Fisher

    Well we all know at MSNBC they just love to take things out of context and try to make their enemies look racist after all they are Obama’s propaganda wing.

  • Guest

    Glenn Beck often makes no sense whatsoever.

    Remember a couple of weeks ago he was going to release a bombshell that would take down the Republicans and the Dems?  He must have forgotten it.

    Calling centrist Obama a “Marxist?” THAT is the smear of the decade, but here’s Glenn Beck whining about being “smeared.”

    This is what hypocrisy looks like: The master of smear, Glenn Beck, pointing his deceitful finger at anyone pointing out the FACT that Beck usually does not make sense.

    • greywolfrs

      Hey, it’s vicki tiffany the coward.

      Remember a couple of weeks ago when Glenn and the Blaze reported on a journalist from the Canadian Free Press, Hagmann, who said he had something that would blow the lid off the scandals? Dunce.

      Obamao is NOT anywhere close to the center and the word Marxist came out of his own mouth. You know, when he said he would seek out the most Marxist profs. and groups in college. Nevermind that though, you morons just can not come to terms with that fact.

      Hypocrisy, you know a lot about that. You have a webpage and fagbook page dedicated to bashing Glenn Beck, talk about smearing someone. You make the least sense of anyone, punk bitch.

    AL Sharpton is nuts and everybody that has any sense knows that. He is nothing but a mentally-disturbed and ignorant race-baiter 
    The following has nothing to do with Al Sharpton, but about your terrible usage of the English Language, Glenn.
    I used to like to hear what you said Glenn. Now I realize you’ve fallen into using the word “like” incorrectly, similar to many people, trying to be cool,
    I heard a recent segment of your show and you said something similar to “I was like, Oh my gosh.” Then you followed it up with several similar phrases, using the word “like” incorrectly.
    When I hear our language being butchered, it makes me think my head is going to explode. I was trained in Journalism in college and worked for a newspaper for many years and this type of  poor English shows me a lack of  primary education.                                                         Most well-educated people speak in complete sentences. That is why the primary school I attended, taught me and my classmates to diagram sentences.
    I’d love for someone try and diagram one of these phrases, with the incorrect use of the word, “like” that people are trying to pass off as sentences.
    When I find someone using  the word “like” incorrectly, I usually don’t listen to anything else they have to say.
    I learned, at an early age to speak and write clearly. I guess a lot of people, these days, either don’t know or don’t care about such things. Words do have meanings and when they’re used incorrectly, it diminishes the meaning of what was attempted to be said.

    In my previous post below, The sentence that began with, “I’d love for someone try to diagram      .”
    The sentence should have began with, “I’d love for someone to try and diagram     ”
    I apologize for this mistake.

    Very well, boys and girls,…if we are going to talk about racism let’s take the topic form top, ready everyone?

    And because it is somewhat complicated form certain angle, le’s go directly to the roots, shall we?

    Walk with me and take a look ;

    And who….WHO IS TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE ABOUT THIS? ( the re-energized racism?)…ideas anyone?

    And now the entire blasted country is in flames as result;___
    Ever since Obama was tagged as ‘president’, the shroud of RACISM raised – and continues – at dangerous levels.Obama himsefl was the first one to address / or call upon the RACE CARD …everyone remebers whe he said; – “….I am the skinny guy ….with the funy name….that does not looks ar the other presidents printed in the paper money….”etc, etc, etc___Is that forgoten already ?…..well,…I did not forget ….
    …and he emphasized that in a number of times.I think that if (whoever has it) has all this moments of our contemporary history on video-tape ar video-disc , should go back to it and examine the events.
    Input anyone? Opinions welcome.

    Now, here is the thing;…. this character Al Sharpton is going into the arts and the sciences of psychology and even perhaps psychiatry …or so it sounds….which brings into effect an attempt to explain his obvious frustration and hate for / and against white people.

    Putting all the factors so far into play;… on his comments,… animosity state, level of voice (which denote massive anxiety),… and specific remarks,…. it would be half way correct to understand that Mr Sharpton does not -perhaps – hate whites because they are there – just been whites…

    In others words the hate he has is a self-hate / self-inflicted animosity,…a kind of ….’inward hate’,….. hate toward himself just because he did not born white,….and so he seems to transfers all that frustration,…. to the ones that are,..and  look,…the way – and image – he really want to be…..been white.

    If by any chance, this would be his mental paradigm,…..this is definitely a formidable case for deep observation and study for years to come …for like him?…. there is a lot of them out there.

    Input anyone? Opinions welcome.

    well, this is absolutely about civil rights and anyone mounting opposition to it is obviously not in possession of either the facts or sound mind, or both.  sharpton will always frame the argument (beginning, middle and end) w/a bogus premise.  time and time again he’s chosen to be the pitbull for his/their version of civil rights and it’s no surprise that he was brought forth at a certain time in bho’s administration when initially he was set aside.  

    these guys are not nice people.  they have no center of gravity.  they don’t care about real truth.  truth bores them.  they want to take over and they have achieved it and they’re not going to let up just because we make a plausible case and/or we have the truth on our side.

    their electorate is not intelligent so there’s no risk of losing their base.

    if we dont stared standing up for our rights, we will shorly fall. people asked your self do, i wont to live like china, do you!  set there and you will. this president, is sending us to hell. we have lost a lot, thinks to liberts up there, reid, polose,and dam a$$ like them.

    Let’s be clear folks, the IRS thing is NOT a civil rights issue, it is NOT . . . c’mon folks STOP the madness. When finally we can see our “white brothers and sisters” getting beat on the streets by Police, signs in stores and restaurants telling “whites are not welcome”, or minorities shooting whites just because they are white . . . . or whites being send to different schools because of their skin color, THEN and ONLY then we can call it a Civil Rights Movement . . .

    He thinks the only civil rights issues are where blacks are involved.  Sorry, Al, there can be civil rights violations of anyone.  The whole point of the Civil Rights struggle in the 50s and 60s was for everyone to have equal rights under the law.
