Al Sharpton stops Meet The Press panel from revising the torrid American apartheid stance 1


The Daily Kos has the article Al Sharpton stops Meet The Press panel from revising the torrid American apartheid stance

One of the excerpts that the article highlights is:

“I think it is a betrayal of history to act as though as Nelson Mandela evolved the world embraced it. There was a real battle in this country,” Al Sharpton said. “So when Randall Robinson and Maxine Waters and Reverend Jackson led that fight … there was major contention. They were attacked for supporting communists. Let’s remember the ANC that he refers to, they were pursuing freedom. Many of the communist nations embraced them. This country did not. So it is not like they were born Marxist. They were born people seeking to be free. Some of the Marxist nations, either genuinely or in a self-interest way, tried to embrace that. This country did not, and fought that, and denounced them, and denigrated them. And I think that for us now to sugarcoat that is a betrayal of history. We chose sides. We chose the wrong side


I avoided being told the wrong stuff and then having someone correct it by not watching Meet The Press anymore. Not watching the Sunday morning talk shows is one of the ways I keep my blood pressure under control.

    Hah! I like that, Steve. I can never watch the Sunday morning talk shows either! Not that I’m available to because I’m usually at church singing in choir, etc., Sunday mornings. But I can’t stand them and agree with you about my BP!
