Al Sharpton and Megyn Kelly Get Into Heated Exchange Over Ferguson

Fox News host Megyn Kelly and activist and MSNBC personality Al Sharpton had a heated exchange Wednesday about the Department of Justice’s findings in the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson.

Kelly interviewed Sharpton at his National Action Network event in New York City, and she repeatedly challenged him about his rhetoric about the racially charged case.

Police officer Darren Wilson fatally shot Brown, a black teenager, in 2014 and claimed self-defense. Witnesses claimed that Brown had his hands up and was not a threat to Wilson, but a grand jury did not indict Wilson for any crime, leading to riots and a renewed debate about police conduct toward African Americans.

The Department of Justice investigation ultimately found Wilson did not violate Brown’s civil rights, and it also found no evidence to disprove Wilson’s belief that his life was in danger that evening.

Sharpton, however, maintained that witnesses told him they saw different, and he had no reason to apologize for his charged language about Wilson’s guilt.

“I stated what I believe,” Sharpton said. “I’m an opinion guy.”

But, Kelly said, that opinion had proven to be wrong, and she asked if he bore responsibility for Wilson’s current low circumstances, given the notoriety he’s faced since the shooting.

“You don’t talk to all the witnesses,” Kelly said. “The DOJ does. They get people in there, and it can be a crime to lie to an FBI agent. It’s not a crime to lie to Reverend Al.”

Sharpton told Kelly to “calm down.” Kelly bristled.

“Watch it with ‘calm down,’” Kelly said. “Ask Bill O’Reilly about that. I had to lecture him on that one himself.”

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.
