If you have been following the Ground Zero mosque abomination, Al Sharpton has been front and center supporting the mega mosque, squealing about "religious liberty" when everyone knows the victory mosque has nothing to do with that.
Al Sharpton is a bigot, a real one. And the media treats him like an elder statesman. Sick.
two anti-Semitic pogroms, one in Crown Heights the other in Harlem. Each of the Sharpton-incited riots, the Crown Heights pogrom and the one at Freddie's Fashion Mart in Harlem resulted in deaths, making Sharpton an accessory to mass murder.
Sharpton's bigotry and hypocrisy has been front and center this week as on one hand he campaigned for what he saw was the first Amendment rights of Muslims to build a Mosque 500 feet from ground zero, but on the other hand bashed Glenn Beck for organizing a religion-themed rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
Sharpton was on a local news program earlier this week and said developers of the mosque need to be treated the same as any other religious group.Sharpton said he was concerned about recent criticisms and that misinformation was confusing the debate. He said preventing an Islamic group from building near the World Trade Center site ignores the fact that the September 11th attackers targeted people of all faiths. Sharpton said at its core, the controversy is about protecting religious freedom in our country.
"If we begin to appear that we are going to tell people that the right to religious beliefs and practices stops at certain places, stops two blocks within an area that we had one of the most despicable acts in human history, but you don't have religious freedom here, then I think the terrorists won that day and I think that we need to be careful of what we're projecting," said Sharpton.
Glenn Beck is planning a rally to be held in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. 47 years to the day after Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.
The rally is not political. Called "Restoring Honor," the rally is all about restoring religion as a key part of the lives of Americans. To make sure it doesn't become political, Beck has asked attendees to leave their signs at home, because the rally's purpose was to "honor the troops, unite the American people under the principles of integrity and truth, and make a pledge to restore honor within ourselves and our country."
