Bigot Al Sharpton strikes again

Race pimp, anti-Semite, slanderer and bigot Al Sharpton ( you won't ever see me refer to him `reverend' on this site) is at it again, and this time his target is Mitt Romney and the Church of the Latter Day Saints.

Christopher Hitchens has a book out that essentially plumps for atheism and he and Sharpton we're discussing it, and a few other topics at the New York Public Library's Beaux-Arts headquarters.

When GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney came in to the conversation, Al Sharpton let fly with this gem:

"As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways, so don't worry about that; that's a temporary situation," Sharpton said.

The Romney campaign appropriately accused Sharpton of bigotry, which is rather like saying that Picasso painted pictures.

"It is terribly disheartening and disappointing to hear Reverend Sharpton offer such appalling comments about a fellow American's faith," said Romney spokesman Kevin Madden. "America is a nation of many faiths and common values, and bigotry toward anyone because of their beliefs is unacceptable."

Romney himself weighed in during an appearance on the Fox News program "Hannity and Colmes."

"I think there are differences between different faiths in this country. And there will be battles between different religions," Romney said. "That's a great thing about this country. We don't decide who's going to be in office based on what church they go to."

Sharpton, of course is trying to spin this by saying he was referring to Hitchens rather than Romney.

Am I to understand from this that Christopher Hitchens is running for president? And is someone of the ilk of Al Sharpton implying that Republicans don't believe in G-d?

Needless to say, Sharpton did not deign to actually apologize to Romney. That isn't Sharpton's style.

I have yet to hear any of the Democratic presidential candidates, the same people who were kissing Sharpton's ring a couple of weeks ago in New York comment on this outrageous slander or distance themselves from Sharpton in the least.

Considering the frenzy over Don Imus' remarks, for which Al Sharpton was anointed judge, jury and executioner, the dinosaur media has been curiously silent on this. Were Romney to say that Sharpton has no belief in G-d, it would be screaming headlines.

I'm curious as to what someone like Sharpton would have to say or do to have the dino media label him as the racist, bigoted creep he is.

We absolutely have to let this guy keep talking. I don't know which straw is going to break the camel's back, but it's coming.

Let's not forgot Sharpton's anti-Semitic remarks during the 1990's both in Harlem and in Crown Heights. When is the media going to stop calling him a civil rights leader and start asking him some tough questions about his own bigotry?
