Are you saying a political candidate should not go speak to voters at a religious college?
Umm. Wrong. In fact when Trump went to Liberty U. it was by Jerry Falwell Jr. invitation. There was a big student body protest against his visit as they found Trump quite unchristian.

By big, it was probably like 5 people.

Again, I dn't think Jerry Falwell Jr has advocated violence like Al Sharpton did.

You are obviously an intellectually dishonest person trying to spin for your sleazy party that supports a hatemonger who advocated violence against cops.

I normally avoid the Al threads. It gives his name free publicity. I detest race baiters like Sharpton and Jackson, because they feed the hate. My son has to face the music when ever Sharpton and company gets caught fanning the flames.

That said..... The right goes crazy when ever they can find a black person willing to trash inner city blacks. They love when minorities spew right wing rhetoric. It's their, see we gotcha moment.

The Right loved Bill Cosby....Well Uncle Bill isn't such a role model after all. I don't like anyone who trashes their own collectively. They have a problem if they do.

I love the Hodge Twin's humor. I don't care about their politics, I love their humor. I like that they bash liberals only because they are funny and they bash the liberals with their own rhetoric. I don't like Rush or Hannity or any number of ultra right mouth pieces. Same reason I don't like ultra left mouth pieces. They are all frauds and phonies.

I don't recall Bill Cosby ever 'loved' by the right, other than some of us like the Cosby Show, which was a decent sitcom at least for the early years.

I think you are a liberal who tries to pretend he's in the middle. It is called triangulation.

I don't think the right goes 'crazy' if a black person is a conservative. I think the left goes crazy if a black person is a conservative and attacks them.

People on the left seem to think having dark skin color should dictate what you think about political issues and how you vote.

I admit I can't stand the guy, but that comes from living in NYC area my whole life and hearing his BS constantly.
You know what most African Americans feel about Sharpton, huh?

Strange. Iím black as they come, and even I donít know.

Sharpton Unsavory? The Republicans just elected Trump. Like, are you just INTENTIONALLY missing the irony of your comments here?

This is the guy that busted out an Atlantic City casino, fleeced the state of New Jersey and his creditors, and left small contractors out in the cold with a $63 million dollar unpaid tab. Many went under.

So I mean...letís cool out on the ďunsavoryĒ nonsense.

Look it up pal. It was covered in the news. The mere fact that you don't even know the significance of GOP candidates getting LU support shows your ignorance in the matter.

The second Bill Cosby attacked his fellow blacks, he became a right wing hero. And he didnít even become a Republican.

Oh please. The right used to quote Cosby's family values rhetoric. It was a favorite talking point.

Maybe you simply have selective memory?
