Al Sharpton: Rush Limbaugh May Be Forced To Testify Before FCC About His 'Racist' Comments (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Dec 17th 2010 7:00PM
Recently, Al Shapton meet with the FCC in hopes he could convince them to take action against Rush Limbaugh, who Shaprton believes has made racist statements about Barack Obama and other black political figures.

The civil rights activist appeared on the 'Ed Show' (weekdays, 6 PM ET on MSNBC) to discuss this meeting. While Sharpton conceded he wasn't able to get the FCC to take an "affirmative" stand against Limbaugh, he believes Limbaugh may be forced to testify in a hearing about radio standards.

"(The FCC) can not infringe upon free speech, but they can talk about standards, and can have open public hearings where radio owners and personalities (appear) and certainly we would want Mr. Limbaugh to be one of them," Sharpton said.

Then Sharpton added he would "love to see" Limbaugh explain in public why some of the statements he's made "are not racist."

We agree. Limbaugh vs. a FCC panel on what constitutes racism would probably be some highly entertaining television.

Al's one of the biggest RACISTS on the airwaves! Al's representing himself as a "Reverend" just cheapens the meaning of the word "Reverend". Yo "Rev Al"- the Bible states, "Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone"(John 8:7) ... So then, Al,what book do you use??? hmmmmmm? Oh, I know, maybe MSNBC will give you your own "Reality" show? ... I think MSNBC still has about 4 viewers total left...?

Rush Limbaugh is the clinical example of deep seeded asinine ignorance, if you were to look up word moron in any dictionary Rush Limbaugh's picture would be right next to it,with a Klansman hood on. Europeans liken him to Satan and even Satan would take a seat to this guy, why don't you send him to Gitmo and be done with it.

Sharpton is complaining about a statement Limbaugh made about Obama in which he referred to him as a "Negro" and it wasn't a positive comment. Interestingly, Limbaugh was borrowing a quote from the L.A. Times - why doesn't Sharpton go after the Times?

Al is a poverty pimp. He wants to be allowed to call everyone a racist when he is the racist. Everytime there is an event involving blacks and whites he shows up and calls all whites racist and starts leading marches/demonstrations whether race was involved or not. He thinks everyone is wrong if they are not black. He has been proven wrong time and time again. TB, West Memphis, Duke. He is an idiot.
