Brain ... Damaged


Oh, it hurts.  It really hurts bad.  I think my brain may finally be dying.  There's only so much strength left to fight the tide of morons beating against my sanity's shoreline.  Let me explain, and through this catharsis, relieve some of my pain...

I was reading a little article on Glenn Beck's 8/28 rally in DC, and when I got to the end, I ran into this paragraph brimming with Al Sharpton's patently mendacious stupidity:

Sharpton argues that Beck's message is counter to King's. "Glenn Beck and others are expected to push for the expansion of states' rights - the exact antithesis of the civil rights movement and Dr. King's legacy," Sharpton said in a news release promoting his march. "The Tea Party and allied conservatives are trying to break that national stance on justice and, in turn, break the crux of what the civil rights movement symbolized and what Dr. King fought and literally died for."
 For the love of Pete, why, why, why?!?   Why do citizens of this country ever act this way?  Well as I sit here, I can think of only these possibilities:

  • Sharpton is truly a pathological dunderhead, and cannot understand the simple notion that freedom is good, oppression is bad.  The Tea Party Movement is, fundamentally, at odds with the overreaching control exerted by our federal government (contradicted by the tenth amendment).
  • Sharpton does understand this, and wants to prevent others from understanding the truth.  He is therefore evil and deceptive, and when his time comes (eventually) he will go to hell and spend all eternity playing tiddly-winks with Adolf Hitler.
 In case Al Sharpton is reading this blog, I will provide for your educational enlightenment our constitution's tenth amendment:
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
Since this has nothing to do with civil rights at all, Sharpton's remarks (quoted in the article) are left intolerably detached from reality.  This is either completely lost on him, or he's working to milk the civil rights issue to perpetuate his own livelihood.

In fact, were he alive today, King would probably be attending the Tea Party Movement rallies himself.

Al Sharpton is unfortunately finding any way he can to say racism. This man has not yet let the past go and moved forward. This is why in some cases race relations is bad due to people who push this type of behavior BOTH WHITE AND BLACK. Unfortunately when someone does say racism automatically white comes to mind. A prime example of racism the Black panthers and Al Sharpton and I'm sure many more . So it goes to show that it may never be over until such old outdated feelings die and we can move on. Maybe there are things that one side or the other dislikes and that's ok, but let's not make it a public issue (keep it to yourself) unless both parties want to discuss it in privet amongst themselves.
