Al Sharpton Quotes

Well, what they, uh, first of all, part of the bill is that you can opt out. And, uh, I think that some of them opt out because they have other kinds of insurance and other security. Others opt in because they have no way of being insured. So part of the bill is to give you options. Part of those that are uninsured is that they don’t have any options. – Oct, 2013 on Obamacare

Sharpton says Republicans sees blacks like Hitler saw the Jews: AL SHARPTON It seems like they [Republicans] act as though, some wiping out of people, some of the right-wing, is all right, it’s not all right to do to any innocent people. If you had war and people that’s one thing, but to wipe out innocent people just because of who they are like what was done in Hitler’s Germany or what was done to Native Americans is not justifiable.
ELINOR TATUM (PUBLISHER, NEW YORK AMSTERDAM NEWS): You know but Rev, I think and what is similar to Hitler’s Germany is that Hitler did not believe those people to be human.
SHARPTON: Right. (full story)

The Republican party has been in a mad rush to its extreme white wing, – January 5, 2012 discussing Rick Santorum and his conservative beliefs

January 31, 2011 broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Ed Show”

We’re not telling Rush don’t say what he wants to say. Say it at home. Don’t get on publicly regulated radio and television that are selectively given licenses and do that to offend someone because of their race or their gender. – December 2010

You’ve got to remember that those stations that Rush Limbaugh is on and others are regulated by FCC, granted by FCC; they go back to them to get waivers. They go back to them to get consolidation. They have the right to set standards. That does not impair your right to speak what you believe, but it does say that you are not going to do that to offend groups of Americans based on their race, their gender, their sexual status – none of that. – on Sharpton’s own radio show, November 19th, 2010, discussing the FCC regulating (banning?) certain shows (e.g. Rush Limbaugh)

It is clear a lot of the country has been seduced to some type of hysteria against the President. – November 3, 2010

Yeah and, and you wonder whether that was designed that way because, just remember now it was Mr. Beck himself that was saying this is gonna be to “reclaim civil rights. I’m gonna do this and that,” attacking the President. And then he comes and does none of that. So I don’t know if it was his promotion or whether we’re seeing the true political strategy. – discussing Glenn Beck Washington DC speech on NBC’s Today Show, August 28, 2010

No, what the offense is to try and cast that as civil rights. Blacks, whites, we had many speakers of all races that are legitimately in civil rights, union leaders, the Secretary of Education, people that are trying to deal with the inequality in this country. We’re not talking about the day didn’t belong to blacks or whites. The day does belong to those that believe in what Dr. King’s dream was about. – discussing Glenn Beck Washington DC speech on NBC’s Today Show, August 28, 2010

They want to disgrace this day! And we’re not giving them this day! This is our day, and we ain’t giving it away! – August 28 Washington DC rally, speaking against the Glenn Beck rally

Why don’t you, you’re here on Fox, invite Mr. Beck on the show to finish the speech? He said we should all come together equal…how do we do that? – “Geraldo At Large” August 28, 2010 following DC rallies

He made a great statement – he said after 9/11 we all came together. All Americans, all races, all religions – therefore Mr. Beck, will you say we should stop fighting the mosque? That’s where the rhetoric will hit the road. – “Geraldo At Large” August 28, 2010 following DC rallies

Well, I think that we’ve got to really look at what is going on here, and as people have said to the African-American community, we shouldn’t rush to judgment that it’s racial, and we shouldn’t. They shouldn’t rush to judgment that they’re guilty, because there’s been allegations. You must remember, Don, we heard a lot of allegations around the Illinois governor, Blagojevich, as it related to the only black in the U.S. Senate, Roland Burris. We’re at the end of Blagojevich’s trial- it’s going to the jury- and have heard little of even Burris’s name and he said he won’t run again. Same with New York Governor David Paterson, one of two black governors- a lot of allegations- he says he’s not running again- all of sudden, we find at least one of the major investigations- they find nothing wrong.

So, if you begin to see a pattern of people being called on, being investigated- allegations- they end up [finding] nothing, one would be very naive not to say- well, wait a minute, why should we rush to judgment, particularly when you have Charlie Rangel…who has done so much for his district and the country- and Maxine Waters- and we’ve already seen two high-profile black leaders hit heavy by the media, and then nothing is there. – responding to CNN’s Don Lemon’s question “Do you think that black members are being targeted unfairly by the Ethics Committee?”  August 2, 2010

Sharpton: I think that this is — began to transform the country the way the president had promised. This is what he ran on.

Geraldo Rivera on FOX: Some argue to socialism.

SHARPTON: Well, first of all, then we’d have to say that the American public overwhelmingly voted for socialism when they elected President Obama. – Sharpton on Geraldo Rivera’s show on FOX March 21, 2010
