You've heard him rant against Jews. You've heard him rant against gays. You've heard him struggle to finish a sentence after his teleprompter breaks down. Well now, the Reverend Al Sharpton is back with another great hit! For those who don't know, King Obama recently signed 19 executive orders enhancing gun control. According to the law, executive orders are only available to the President to enforce an already existing law: one that's been passed by the legislative branch. Well, these 19 royal decrees will never see the halls of Congress. Obama simply decided that he didn't want to deal with those pesky elected legislators. In response to these new mandates, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said states and local governments should nullify the new "laws," and neglect to enforce them. This idea of states rights and only enforcing "actual laws" has enraged the left, and according one-time Democratic Presidential candidate and current MSNBC TV host, Al Sharpton, Paul is basically just promoting slavery and Jim Crow laws.
During his daily broadcast of "Politics Nation," Sharpton made the following assertion:
"Nullification? States' rights? State sovereignty? For many decades these ideas was used to defend slavery and later Jim Crow."
I don't know what's funnier: Sharpton drawing the most random parallel I've ever seen or him saying "these ideas was used." Looks like Rand Paul is trying to bring back slavery! Sharpton brought in even more evidence. He showed the governor of Alabama in 1963, George Wallace, attack the federal government's attempts to force integration in schools as a violation of state's rights, and then he showed the current governor of Mississippi attacking Obama's 19 executive orders to end the 2nd Amendment as we know it. Pretty much the same thing, right? He then had the courage to invite on two guests who both agreed with him to "debate" over the issue… and of course by debate I mean nod their heads and agree with whatever Sharpton said.
If I may quote Sharpton when speaking of a topic irrelevant to this: "… to build a movement of resistance, and resist, we much. We must, and we will much. About. That. Be committed." Watch out guys, we're dealing with a f-ing genius!
