The war of words between Palm Beach radio star Rush Limbaugh and New York activist Al Sharpton escalated Saturday, with the Rev saying he’s going to sue Limbaugh for defamation. Rush said on jis show: “He (Sharpton),” Limbaugh wrote, “also played a leading role in the 1991 Crown Heights riot (he called neighborhood Jews “diamond merchants”) and the 1995 Freddie’s Fashion Mart riots.”
Today Sharpton replied: “Not only did Rush Limbaugh try to criminalize the NFL,” Sharpton told Page2Live, “but now he is saying I’m a criminal. He can call me a race-baiter and all that stuff like he does. But don’t call me a criminal.”
“I’ve sued the GOP before and Rush knows that,” Sharpton said. “This is going to cost Rush. He’s making himself look worse.”
Limbaugh didn’t comment yet.......but he will.
Hey Sharpton, regardless of what Rush said, you're still an ordained minister of the Gospel aren't you? Didn't Jesus (your Master) say the following: "Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." Matthew 7:5 And doesn't He also say in Matthew 5:39: "If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also."
For let's review a bit of Shaprton's history:
The "co-Popes of black folks" are particularly disdainful of Jews. Both Sharpton and Jackson, along with NAACP President Kweisi Mfume, have embraced notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan (see LINK below). Jesse Jackson has repeatedly referred to New York City as "Hymietown" because of the large numbers of Jews who live there. During the 1991 Crown Heights riots, Al Sharpton referred to Jews as "diamond merchants."
Worse, during Sharpton's 1995 boycott of Jewish merchants, Morris Powell, Sharpton's spokesman, shouted to blacks passing by Freddy's clothing store in Harlem, "Keep [going] right on by Freddy's. He's one of the greedy Jew bas**rds killing our people. Don't give the Jew a dime."
In 1987, Sharpton and two lawyers involved themselves in what became known as the Tawana Brawley Hoax. Without checking facts, they incited riots and accused two innocent white men of raping a fifteen year old black girl. After hearing hundreds of witnesses, the Grand Jury determined that Brawley had manufactured the whole hoax to cover up the fact that she had sneaked off to visit her boyfriend in jail. In a civil suit, Sharpton (who spent $2,000 a year on hair care at the Prima Donna Beauty Salon in Brooklyn) and the two lawyers were ordered to pay $345,000 for their part in the hoax; Brawley was ordered to pay $185,000. (See the LINK below for details on how Sharpton kept the hoax alive long after he knew that Brawley was lying.)
Jesse Jackson's lie that blacks are "hunted for sport"; Al Sharpton's lie that white-on-black violence is "a national epidemic."http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/ReadArticle.asp?ID=1388
Louis Farrakhan - Jew Hater, Friend of Jackson and Sharpton
"You [Jews] are wicked deceivers of the American people. You have sucked their blood. You are not real Jews (who everyone knows were black) You are the synagogue of Satan, and you have wrapped your tentacles around the US government, and you are deceiving and sending this nation to hell… . But if you choose to crucify me (subtle reference to the Deicide charge), know that Allah will crucify you."

Sharpton, by his own actions, shows that he's full of it! I think Rush's own Bo Snerdley ought to have a talking to him!
