Succinctly stated, the word boorish means vulgar and uncouth, thus the warm attraction those people fiercely loyal to the Democratic Party find so inviting. However, the word boorish also means: churlish, loutish and clownish, which epitomizes Al Sharpton.
Sharpton has emerged from his nest in the sewers of New York to threaten to label Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin, W.Va., and Krysten Sinema, Ariz., racists over their support for keeping the Senate filibuster.
This is beyond vulgar and a disgraceful act of diminution to men and women of the past who stood for true equality and who embraced modernity, but such uncouth clownishness is certainly consistent with the character of Sharpton.
If I were forced to wager on how this pathetic threat from a true child of darkness factors into the ultimate decision making of Sinema and Manchin, I’d say their polling data will make the determination for them. You can be sure they’re gathering polling data seeing to what extent if any they can afford to ignore the threat made by Sharpton, the former cocaine-dealer the FBI flipped and turned in a paid snitch, despite the fact so-called fact-checkers claim said is not true. It’s hard to deny that the video of Sharpton doesn’t prove it’s true.
I demand to know at what point Sharpton will be held accountable for illegally influencing the political process through the use of extortion. In the mind of any reasonable person, that’s exactly what Sharpton is doing. He’s using blackmail and extortion to undermine the political process.
It’s a grotesque mischaracterization of a battle to uphold the provisions of the Constitution and Bill of Rights enjoyed by one group of the populace but denied another group of the American populace because Democrats had not yet configured a way to have their racism cake and eat it too. But that changed when the Democratic President Lyndon Johnson enlisted Republican Everett Dirksen, R-Ill., to undertake getting the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Civil Rights Act of 1968 passed.
Sharpton is disgustingly called a civil rights leader by foolish whites and even more foolish agenda-driven purveyors of agitprop in the media. I submit that those people who find being a crayon color elevates their sense of self reference him as such because they like the sensual way the words sound rolling off their forked tongues.
Sharpton is no more a civil rights leader than he is tall and handsome. He is even less of a minister. He is, however, a born liar and coward. His accusing Gelenn Beck’s 2010 “Restoring Honor” rrally and the Tea Party movement of being racist was the last straw for me.
I publicly challenged Sharpton, National Urban League Chairman Marc Morial and former D.C. congressional delegate and co-founder of the Congressional Black Caucus Walter Fauntroy to a televised debate at my expense to be held at the National Press Club, Washington, D. C. It was to be the three of them against me. I faxed, emailed, sent certified letters, and not one of them had the guts to accept my challenge.
Sharpton is great at bullying white people, women and spineless politicians. But his guts ran down his pant leg in liquid form when it came to accepting my challenge. So I held the debate with three empty chairs at the guest’s panel table with their names placed in front of what would have been their seating assignments.
This brings us to a point that I have made before: It is long past time to redefine the civil-rights battle. The battle for civil rights as presently understood has been won. The oppression of 1960 no longer exists today. We cannot move forward umbilically tied to that past. The civil-rights battle of the 21st century is for America. To continue today as in times past is attempting to advance mired neck deep in quicksand.
Blacks can immiserate and whites can wallow in guilt, but the fact remains – there is nothing in our country today preventing anyone from doing, being or attempting anything they choose, save the lack of preparedness, lack of education and lack of vision. Working hard at sports and rap music is not commensurate with working hard at science, math and geography.
The guarantee of opportunity must be understood in context. It is not the guarantee of success, but rather the guarantee of opportunity to succeed as defined by the skills, preparedness and determination of the individual so inclined. The battle for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as accorded by the Constitution has been won.
The battle to defend one’s natural and God-given rights and the free exercise thereof shall not be abridged nor rendered sterile by pernicious marplots who hide behind vestiges of gutter religion and name-calling.
But therein lies the plasticity of cowards and spineless politicians who care more about staying in office than they care about the welfare of the country.
