Rep. Doug Collins schools Al Sharpton

Last night on MSNBC’s Politics Nation, Al Sharpton was schooled by Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) on the Republican-led efforts to defund Obamacare and the difference between a democracy and a Constitutional Republic.

“Last night Al Sharpton on MSNBC had a GOP Rep from Georgia, Doug Collins on his show and Doug Collins is signed onto the bill or the effort to defund Obamacare,” Pat said on radio this morning. “They had a great discussion where Sharpton is yelling and screaming about how this is ridiculous that you’re defunding the government and Doug Collins making a very reasonable, good argument the whole time about defunding.”

The 11-plus minute interview included a lot of shouting on the part of Sharpton and a healthy dose of logic from Rep. Collins, who was able to explain that the Republicans are not looking to shutdown the government but rather to defund Obamacare.

SHARPTON: Now, I don’t – do you think you’re right and these other Republicans are wrong?

COLLINS: Well, I believe at this point in time – I’m new up here, but I ran on a campaign of understanding and listening to the American people over this healthcare issue and one of the things since I’ve gotten up here, Al, I’m just going to be honest with you. I’ve listened to my friends across the aisle who called this a train wreck. They’ve called it a mistake. They’ve called it not ready for primetime. They’ve just went on and on about how this law is not ready to be. Even the President has put it off from the business mandate and putting things together. This is not ready for the American people. So the Republicans are not shutting down the government. In fact, we’re fully funding the government through our CR, except we’re saying we’re not ready to impose this upon the American people. We’re protecting the American people through funding the government, but we’re also protecting them through taking the law in which Democrats will admit is not ready.

SHARPTON: Wait a minute. You said you listened to the American people. The American people voted when this was an election issue last year. Were you listening then? The Congress voted and made it law. Were you listening then? The Supreme Court said that it was Constitutional. Were you listening then? You’re a Congressman. You’re deciding that a law that was passed, that was certified by the Supreme Court, you can decide not to fund?

“Hold on. Stop,” Stu said. “What happened to, let’s say, the Defense of Marriage Act. Or remember when you just decided not to enforce that? It was something that was voted on. By the way, it was more popular than this President’s healthcare plan ever was. It was voted on and passed by the Congress and signed by the President and it was at least, upheld by the Supreme Court. I don’t know, it seems like the exact same situation but [Sharpton] didn’t like that bill.”

COLLINS: Well, I think it’s interesting that you make all those assessments and then you have the President of the United States taking black letter law on a date in which one part of the healthcare law was supposed to takes place and deciding that that’s not really what the law meant. I’m going to delay that for a year because I didn’t like the consequences of it. Al, you can’t have it both ways. You can’t say that Republicans are not listening to the American people when, by the way, if you look at the polls recently, most of them are coming around to the conclusion that this is not a good idea for the American people and you can’t have both sides when you’ve got the administration –

“I don’t know that much about Doug Collins,” Pat said. “He’s doing a great job here.

While much of this conversation can be characterized as typical partisan bickering, one point of contention in the back-and-forth has gotten some attention.

SHARPTON: What people don’t understand, Congressman, is how we pass laws the Supreme Court upholds and you guys come in and say, we’re not going to fund it and even worse, if money goes there, we’ll shut the whole government down. We thought we lived in a democracy with a balance of powers between three branches of government. We didn’t think the Supreme Court, the Congress, and the voters could be told we’re going to tell you all, take a hike, we’ll shut it all down if we don’t have it our way. Come on, Congressman. That’s not what this country is supposed to be about.

COLLINS: Hey, Al, just a reminder. This isn’t a democracy. It’s a republic.

SHARPTON: Oh. It is not a democracy?

“That is news to Sharpton,” Pat interjected. “This is not a democracy. You didn’t learn that in school?”

“It’s a republic,” Stu added. “It’s a Constitutional Republic.”

COLLINS: Look at the Constitution. We’re reflecting the people of the ninth district. And, again, I just want to make one thing very clear — and I enjoy having this conversation with you.

SHARPTON: I enjoying having this, too, because I really hope the people in the 9th district know on the next election that they should not vote thinking this is a democracy. This is not a democracy. I’ll even send you the clip so you can play it in your next campaign.

“Like that’s some sort of threat. I’ll even send you the clip, Congressman, so you can prove to yourself that you were right and it will be embarrassing for you, how right you are. Okay, Al,” Pat said. “I don’t care if they’re in the district of Georgia, anywhere you were in this country. You absolutely should know, and you should know that in first grade, this is not a democracy. It is not a democracy. It is a republic.”

“That’s amazing because, you know. Look, you expect Al Sharpton to lie to win an argument at the time and not care about it, but he really has never heard of that before. He has no idea,” Stu concluded. “Certainly people throw the word democracy around and we think of it typically as a positive determine, but when you’re describing the way our government operates, democracy was not only something [the Founding Fathers] didn’t do, it was something they vilified. They specifically spoke out about how it would crumble, which is why they came up with the Constitutional republic we have, Al.”

  • Scott Arnold

    I listened to this exchange on your radio program today. I would argue that this is a classic case of focusing too much on being right and proving the other guy wrong and missing a huge opportunity as a result. Here’s how it should have gone:

    Sharpton: This is not a democracy?….

    Collins: I’m sorry, Al, you’re absolutely right, thanks for correcting me. We DO live in a democracy, so the majority should rule in this case. Since poll after poll has conclusively shown that the majority of Americans do NOT want Obamacare, I’ve decided to accede to their democratic will and do everything in my power to keep it from taking affect. Can I count on your support, this being a democracy and all?

    Just like a Liberal to twist the truth!  They are professional at how to not accept blame for anything and blame everyone else for all the dumb decisions that are being made!  The Democrats/Liberals never listen, don’t want to listen to the people and never will listen!  They like to spend everyone else’s hard earned money.  They want “only” to even out their hate for Conservatives, Tea Partiers and Republican’s.  It’s time they learn the words “Being Honest.”

    Sounds like Al needs to go back to school and while he is at it he should include the President and Harry Reid. These people are distorting the Constitution. The President took an oath to uphold the laws of the land. One of his first acts was not enforce the DOMA act-a law at that time. And ICE? they have been told not to enforce the immigration laws. Harry Reid hasn’t put a budget into the picture for over five years. And the law says we are supposed to have a budget every year. HMMMMMM! I wonder if the President with his barely 51% of the vote has really looked at how he is doing. Listen to the distortions of what is being said here. Congress voted for the health care bill—–Democrats and how many Republicans. And Al. We have a Democratic Republic. Not a Democracy.

    Exactly.  Those idiots actually will think that Sharpton is right, because they’ve been indoctrinated to believe that we are in a democracy.  I saw it in my own kids social studies assignments last year (he was in 2nd grade).  It stated, “the United States is a representative democracy”.  Real slimy and sneaky, these progressive sob’s.

    Democrats keep screaming that Republicans are “shutting down the government”, when that is a BLATANT LIE.  Republicans are attempting to shut down OBAMACARE.  They have fully funded the REST of the government in their continuing resolution, and if the Senate chooses to kill it, or Obama chooses to veto it, then THEY are rejecting Republicans’ funding of the government, so WHO is really “shutting down the government” here?  Typical LYING Democrat tactic.  LOUDLY accuse your opponents of what you, yourself are ALREADY DOING.

    I cannot imagine the abject stupidity of this mad – he is dumber than a coal bucket.  Sharpton will say/do anything to be ‘right’ and his method is to ‘out shout’ a guest – how rude, crude and socially unattractive (his stock in trade).
    He should realize that any Republican guest will be far more intelligent that he – Sharpton’s IQ cannot be larger than his shoe size.  He’s pathetic…..and to think he’s a minister – his church
    must be in dire straits.
    For decades, he has been on the wrong side of black/white causes and naturally his side lost.
    He doesn’t even learn from experience.  Now that’s really dumb.

    I particularly liked the part where Al referred to the balance of powers, and how congress acting “out of step” with the other branches was wrong — when in fact, it is an EXAMPLE of how the balance of powers works properly to protect the country.  All branches must agree before it can be enacted upon the people.  That is a fundamental protection of checks and balances.  Without congressional funding, the judiciary’s attempt to legislate fails.

    Here the Representative did miss a minor point.  The US Supreme court does not have the right to rewrite any laws to make them Constitutional.  Yet the Chief Justice did rewrite the Health care law by stating that what the law stated was a “penalty” was not a penalty but a “tax” and therefore it was made Constitutional.  He exceeded his authority and the Constitutional power granted the Judiciary branch.  Therefore as far as I’m concerned, I will not be buying any insurance, and the government can take a hike for this law is not Constitutional and was illegally declared such by the US Supreme Court.

    Al Sharpton is perhaps the most willingly stupid people in the media today, but it’s fine for him, because his audience is several stages stupider.  His ignorance in elementary civics is bewildering.  I’ll bet that he didn’t know that the Soviet Union and North Korea are “democracies,” and that there is nothing wrong with people who do not want our government to someday be compared favorably with Stalinist Russia or Kimmy-ruled Korea.

  • Scott Arnold

    That’s precisely my point. I was arguing that it was a mistake to point out that we don’t live in a democracy, but a republic, and instead use Sharpton’s own words against him. Even people watching him would realize that, with the majority of Americans being AGAINST O-care, that the argument about living in a democracy is nonsense. It is clear that people on the left don’t want the majority to rule, except when the majority makes the “correct” choice.

    However, there are basically two points to make here:
    1) Like it or not, the ACA was passed by both houses of Congress, signed into law by the President, then upheld by SCOTUS. This whole political drama of trying to defund it via the CR is only going to play into the hands of the Democrats and make the Republicans look either clueless or heartless.
    2) The better course would be to stay out of it completely. For God’s sake, there have been so many waivers, exemptions, and delays in implementing the ACA that, as time goes on, more and more groups are going to clamor for an exception, rendering the law virtually moot. Is anyone asking the question, if Obamacare is so wonderful, why is the President delaying its implementation at practically every turn, and why is he exempting so many groups from being accountable to it?

    This battle was fought and lost. It’s Quixotic to continue fighting it when the Dems are doing such a good job of NOT implementing it!

    I think that sometimes you need to tell ignorant dupes that they’re “ignorant dupes.”  Listening to Al react condescendingly as though he knows something that Rep. Collins doesn’t is grating on my nerves.  If anything, he should have told him that the word “democracy” does not appear ANYWHERE in our founding documents, or in amendments to the constitution, and that he should take a primary course in American civics, to educate himself in order not to look like an ignorant dupe on national television.  I don’t know how Rep. Collins could be so utterly polite with this man literally screaming his partisan stupidity at him.  I wouldn’t be able to take it without throwing his excrement back at him.

  • Scott Arnold

    Or you could acknowledge that the term “representative democracy” is technically correct. The term “republic” does not adequately describe our form of government, which is more like a “liberal democracy” (liberal here means “emphasizing individual liberty”). A useful link:

    I wouldn’t claim to have not been wrong before, but simply saying, “You’re wrong,” is not much of an argument. I just happen to think the best way to show people that the Democratic Party still hasn’t won the hearts and minds of the American people is to defeat them in elections. I believe passing a continuing resolution that has no hope of gaining passage in the Senate, let alone be signed into law by the President to defund something that was (wrongly) upheld by the Supreme Court is foolhardy and not a formula for winning elections in the future. It’s a waste of taxpayer money to knowingly pass legislation that has zero chance of becoming law. As a conservative and a taxpayer, I vehemently oppose this move.

    Sharpton is a fool who doesn’t understand the basic tenents of our liberty documents or the intent of the Founders. Not surprising in that he, and most Americans today, were educated in our modern-day, government monopolized school system. What with history books being printed depicting whitewashed history, and an adult representtive of the progressive movement at the head of each classroom, is it any wonder that we are slipping into a fascist state … and most Americans are cheering it on?

  • Anonymous

    One must ask himself just how this bill was voted on and passed. If we look at Pelosi’s argument that we have to pass this bill in order to see what’s in it, then the whole process is a joke beyond laughing. When in the history of any government a bill was passed without seeing ALL the details of such a bill? Sharpton is too dumb to even realize what he is arguing about and typically sticks only to his misleading angle. Finally, he just won’t admit who said that the GOP will shut the government down unless this bill is fully funded by the citizens who don’t want it.

The United States Congress is the only place that law is made. not in the courts, so at this point it really does not matter what the court said about it.

    Why don’t Republicans ever express passion about an issue? They always just sort say, well we just don’t agree or some similar lackluster response. Now when they appear on these program they’d just marginalize the socialist host and stare into the camera and address America with an impassioned argument exposing the reality of these laws it would get a lot more traction. How about a reminder that Obamacare is going to bankrupt individuals and the nation. Companies are going to make full time employment a thing of the past cause they can”t afford it either, doctors are going to be directed to pry into the most intimate details of your life and that “healthcare” is going to be used to control every aspect of our lives. When all of the above is done there will be less people with healthcare coverage and it’ll suck for those who do have coverage. If you have missed this, check yourself for a pulse!

    Mr. Sharpton has no clue. He is so fueled by his racial bigotry and blinded by his hatred of freedom, that he will twist everything that he can to get his way. He just needs to read the history without the spin doctoring of his fellow conspirators to find out the truth. When Benjamin Franklin was approached by a woman on the streets of Philadelphia after the conclusion of the Constitutional Convention and asked what form of government they had provided for America, he replied “Madame. we have given you a republic if you can keep it?”

    Mr Sharpton needs to be able to tell the difference between a democracy and a republic but he apparently wasn’t listening when he was in school, or he attended one of those liberal schools that twisted the truth. Mr. Sharpton needs to know that a democracy is a government where the self-serving majority rules and a republic is a government where there is a rule of law for everyone (i.e. The Constitution) that can only be legally altered by the due consideration of the rights and freedoms of all and by a vote of the people. Please Mr. Sharpton, read the preamble to the Declaration of Independence.  Also, check out Thomas Jefferson remark that “Democracy is the single worst form of government.”

    But Mr. Sharpton’s mantra to live by is ” I’ve got my mind made up, don’t confuse me with the facts.” Al,Sharpton’s truth is what Al Sharpton says it is. He is the most bigoted racist on the national scene. besides Oprah Winfrey, and manages to turn every opposition argument into racism or to shout louder that they do. How he still has any credibility among his constituents, or anybody else for that matter, I just don’t understand.

    Also, as far as the Supreme Court saying it was constitutional, they said it was a tax. This should have made it unconstitutional since the bill that became Obamacare originated in the Senate. According to the Constitution, revenue bills can only be proposed and passed by the House of Representative. Besides, this ruling came from an Obama packed  activist court that did not have the courage to preserve the freedoms of the American people as their motivation. Their motivation was the desire to save our President’s posterior.

    Is MSNBC totally insane?? Al Sharpton has a show that is really called ‘Politics Nation!’ It’s a joke surely, come on, tell me it’s a joke. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Al Sharpton is nearly illiterate – he can’t put a sentence together without yelling because that’s all he knows. It’s only a ‘discussion’ if you agree with him. He hears nothing the other person is saying – just keeps repeating himself loudly. The true sign of a Liberal – no logic whatsoever – and suffering from delusions. How has this man managed to crawl up to a show on TV? Just shows how far TV has sunk, doesn’t it? But then again it is MSNBC. Anything that comes out of his lying mouth is ludicrous – he repeats himself but doesn’t have a single intelligent thought to debate. I honestly thought this was a joke.

    Not exactly, B B. If you want to get anywhere with a progressive liberal in public education, you need to be more subtle than approaching them with a confrontational attitude; they’re trained to deal with that type by calling the security guard to remove you for being “violent”. A smarter way to approach them is this… after having done your homework & being sure that you have all facts & information, you ask them if you could be educated on how our government is a democracy. (You see, they then feel important and like they’re doing you a favor at this point.) When they talk about how the people vote on things, you ask them why we elect representatives to vote for us in Congress. Also, ask them to show you specifically where it says that our government is a democracy and that if they can prove it by pointing to it in our Constitution, then why doesn’t Congress just take polling results that show a majority of 51% support a particular issue and just use that information to vote a bill into law? It’s critical that you are conducting yourself in a respectful, appreciative, and gracious manner toward them in order to break down their natural tendency to perceive that you think you’re smarter than them; this they can not handle and you’ll get them to shut down from listening to what you are asking them about. How do I know how liberal progressive teachers in public ed. think… I worked amongst them for 30 years.

    Obama was re-elected because of a program called a “flip flop”, which is in the voting machines designed in 2002 which will flip your vote once casted. Also people voted more than 1x, like in Houston one small 2 bdrm house with 2 people in it voted 44 times alone! The man that developed the flip flop program testified before a special committee in Ohio on Nov 7th last year but nothing was done about the fraud.

    Mr. Sharpton, This is a very important subject and you should know that the Congressman was correct and you and Mr. Simmons are definitely wrong! The United States is not nor has it ever been a democracy! According to the US Constitution, Article 4 Section. 4.The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government,

    Therefore as the Congressman stated We are a Republic! Not a Democracy.

    Beyond that most important note the Congressman was also correct on the fact that the House has Voted to Fund the Government with the exception of the one item of Obamacare. Thus if the Senate wishes to not pass the bill to Fund the Government then it will be the Senate not the House that shuts down the Government and the scare tactics that you and others on the left are spouting is a bunch of falsehoods. Maybe you are just as mistaken about the funding subject as you are the Constitution? Hopefully it is not something more evil.

    Rhetoric is not real, righteous or reliable.  Mr. Sharpton is full of rhetoric not solutions.

    Doug Collins is one of a few leaders who are promoting sustainability in a transparent way.  Mr. Sharpton and many other critics are championing corruption, ignorance, degradation, etc.   

    Yes, we are a republic not a democracy. Low information voters assume we are a democracy.

     Our wise Founders cautioned against a democracy (mob rule/ancient Rome) so you are correct.  As the great Benjamin Franklin said “you have a Republic if you can keep it.”   Hmmmmmm……can we and do we have to will to keep it?

    Not so Sharp one.

    It was sad and painful to watch and listen to Sharp-tongue repeatedly and embarrassingly call a cup, everyone clearly sees on the table, a pencil.

    If we are a Democracy as Sharp-tongue emphatically postulated in the video, then that proves this country has been conquered by Fascist Progressives and a new form of government was installed to replace the Constitutional Republic.

    My real concern and fear is just how incredibly ignorant (stupid) his followers (that vote!) really are to believe a word that comes out of that man’s mouth. It truly is blind, vengeful faith in reparations for Blacks. Their true and real future for a reasonable standard of living is of no concern as long as we [Black People] get our reparations and exact revenge on people that had nothing to do with what’s not being imposed on them.

    Al is such an imbecile.

  • Sean

    Typical Liberal name caller. By the way defender of the poor and the oppressed, calling someone “retarded” is offense to people with disabilities. I guess we can assume that you use all kinds of words that are offensive and disturbing to certain groups of people.

    what Al said in ’08 was , ” his (barry’s) election was a mandate for socialism in this country”. some on the left know what they are doing to my country but disguise it. some support it out of ignorance and others will, pompassly, tell you what they are doing and believe it is desired by the populace. I give you, Al sharpton.

    Just another dummy. Al your really just another dummy.

    Sorry Scott but I for one favor honesty over giving credence to Democrat talking points.  Since before the Roosevelt administration the political left has peddled the erroneous notion that America is a democratic republic.  It is not.  The majority rules in the congress and is supposed to rule at the polls when we elect our representatives.  Even the election of the president is not democratic when one realizes that the parties choose the candidates and how that limits the voters options.  The truth is that the ACA like the income tax and the popular elections of members of the senate was forced upon the nation by the political parties which favor ever larger and more powerful centralized government.  There is not a shred of democracy in the parties actions a danger of which we were warned in the eighteenth century.  The founders of our nation understood far better than the average voter today that democracy is simply another term for mob rule, a condition far more useful to the ruling class than to the common citizen.  Most of us understood that for most of a century until we realized that a.) we could use our votes to loot the treasury and b.) that we had far more important things to think about than what the ruling class was doing to our federal government and indirectly to us.  The result is that what’s best for the nation is no longer so important as the loot from the treasury and which party gets to distribute it.

    The following are quotes I read. Sorry, I can’t recall what it was in but I praise the the way they so simply described it. No “Political Correctness” needed for these statements.

    Just after the completion and signing of the Constitution, in reply to a
    woman’s inquiry as to the type of government the Founders had created,
    Benjamin Franklin said, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

    A Republic is representative government ruled by law (the Constitution). A
    democracy is direct government ruled by the majority (mob rule). A
    Republic recognizes the inalienable rights of individuals while democracies
    are only concerned with group wants or needs (the public good).

    Which would you prefer?

    Farting libtards. LOL

    Unlikely. You’re just a moron.

  • HP McLovincraft

    Shut up retard, and quit playing the victim card. I never claimed to be PC.

    Why is that you bitches always play the victim card?

  • HP McLovincraft

    Totally true, you are just stupid and have very little reading comprehension.

    Also, I don’t Front. Don’t like my language, don’t read it you dumb cunt.

  • HP McLovincraft

    Is this another Average Tattler Joe (or one of his ‘cohorts’) retort or do you bitches all use the same language? That’s what happens when you let a dumbfuck like Glenn Beck spoon feed you.

  • Guest

     Oh, not only likely, but verified by your puerile response which was expected.

  • HP McLovincraft

    Did you learn that word on your word-a-day calendar? Silly Dingleberry.

    And you Mr. @ HP McLovincraft are an idiot if you think the complete opposite of what @Pebbles said (in response to what @TheOleTeaBag said.  IF you agree with Sharpton, then you not only sound like an idiotic moron, you ARE one.  BTW, it’s not cool to disrespect those that are mentally challenged of no fault of their own.  YOU on the other hand, are beyond mentally challenged if you believe anything the race-bater, race-monger says, then you’re more ignorant than I could imagine.  Ignorance is bliss they say.  Those that are, don’t know it.

  • Guest

     LMAO! I bet you had to look it up. I am not surprised you parrot the word dingleberry as you have heard it used as a descriptive for you many times in your life.  Get a life HP Moron. Your efforts at disruption and diversion here are comical at best.
