Something Redeeming About Al Sharpton? Yes …

|| By FITSNEWS ||  This website has little use for professional poverty pimps/ race agitators like Al Sharpton.  Especially when they foment in the name of expanding government (while failing to pay taxes toward the government we already have).

Anyway, Sharpton’s eldest daughter Dominique Sharpton is suing New York City for $5 million after she tripped and fell last October – spraining her ankle.

Her suit alleges “internal and external injuries to the whole body, lower and upper limbs, the full extent of which are unknown, permanent pain and mental anguish.”  It seeks damages for “loss of quality of life, future pain and suffering, future medical bills, (and) future diminution of income.”

Bullsh*t suit?  Absolutely.

In fact Sharpton is making the case against her own complaint by posting social media pictures of herself after scaling mountains in Bali.

“We hiked UP the mountain, over the clouds… into the SUNRISE,” Sharpton wrote.

Yeah … sounds like “permanent pain” to us.

So … how on earth is any of this even remotely redeeming for Al Sharpton (as suggested by our headline)?

Easy: His pitch perfect response to his daughter’s lawsuit.

“She’s 29 years old. Why would she have to talk to me about that?” Sharpton told The New York Post. “I just know that she was hurt and that she got a lawyer and she’s a grown woman. [Where] she goes from there, I have no idea.”

Wow …

How about that for a compelling statement on personal responsibility?

Again … in case you missed that … he said …

“She’s a grown woman.” 

If Sharpton responded to everything like that … we wouldn’t be able to call him a poverty pimp any longer.

Earlier this week our founding editor wrote another lengthy screed about how America has lost its way yadda yadda yadda … and while we’re not sure of the precise point of his column (neither is he, we’re guessing), we’re pretty sure it had something to do with the notion of personal responsibility.

Sharpton’s daughter may not understand that concept, but in this one rare instance her dad seems to “get it” –  a welcome departure from the blame-shifting and scapegoating that has defined his career up to this point.

Assuming Sharpton thinks his daughters lawsuit is bogus(he might, he might not), one would wonder if he connects the dots between his daughters behavior and his own and considers whether he’s been a good role model for her.

Actually, the night before, while Al was sleeping, GOD whispered in his ear: Tawana Brawley – Tawana Brawley – Tawana Brawley..

Al and his daughter give Popeye’s a lot of business. That’s sort of redeeming

euwe max May 20, 2015 at 11:37 am

Al is a godsend! With all the Republican and tea party clowns putting sharp sticks in our eyes for the foreseeable future, it’s nice to know the Democrats have at least one irritant that keeps their colon knotted.

idcydm May 20, 2015 at 12:38 pm

If anything ever happens to Al you’re the logical irritant replacement :)

Sharpton is a self-serving, race-baiting, lying, tax-evading dipshit.

HiLIARy Clinton May 20, 2015 at 12:04 pm

The “Reverend” Al Sharpton perfectly exemplifies and is the poster child of the modern, unhinged, debased, dishonest, delusional, duplicitous, hypocritical, minority-enslaving, handout-giving, race-baiting, morally bankrupt Democrat Party. Way to go Al!

Diogenes May 20, 2015 at 4:57 pm

“unhinged, debased, blah-blah-blah, … morally bankrupt Democrat Party.” Isn’t it wonderful to live in South Carolina where elected Republican officials like Mark Sanford, Thomas Ravenel, Charles Sharpe, Ken Ard, and Bobby Harrell would never have exhibited any of those characteristics?

erneba May 20, 2015 at 6:42 pm

Yeah, you nailed it.
I heard all the leading Republicans in SC are getting together next weekend for an ankle spraining party on the front steps of the state capitol building.
You may think all these SC Republicans are bumbling idiots, but they don’t hold a candle to likes of of the criminally insane Sharpton family.

As the saying goes, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” This bobble-headed, race-baiting agitator has made millions, himself, defrauding–shaking down, actually–corporations, etc. (I’ll include MSNBC in that category of being shook down. How else can you explain this ignoramus, an incompetent individual in all respects as it pertains to being qualified to be given a full our on national television every weekday to do nothing much but race-agitate and otherwise demonstrate a level of stupidity seen no where else on TV. I wonder often what he has on them to force them to have hired him in the first place, and keep him on for so long even after he has proven to be a disaster to their ratings.) Not surprising that his daughter has picked up some of his traits.

shifty henry May 20, 2015 at 6:07 pm

Was he pimping his daughter?

Some how this is connected to the story about the Boy Scouts ban on water pistols.

Wet T-Shirt Contest May 20, 2015 at 3:20 pm

That depends on how hot the daughter is.

Zed May 21, 2015 at 7:20 am

She’s not hot at all. Even though she was “mentored” by Bill Cosby. (I think that’s the daughter in question.)

That one daughter has been quoted as supportive of Cosby, saying that he never violated her in any way. Possibly that was strategic, due to the fact of who her father is. Wanted to make sure “the Reverend” stayed on his side. Her being homely probably made it reak easy not to drug and rape her, of course.

Sharpton has neither publicly supported or denounced Cosby. Says he’s not going to rush to judgement.

As in meaningless snooze?

Great people speak of ideas, mediocre people speak of events, small people speak of other people.

Bible Thumper May 20, 2015 at 10:17 pm

The brain is very active during sleep. MRIs have shown that the brain I just as active, burning as many calories, as when awake. There is no such thing as a meaningless snooze.
There is a great idea that connects these to stories. These two stories are symptoms of the same disease, but I can’t make the diagnosis.

Mike at the Beach May 20, 2015 at 4:14 pm

Come on, man…this is lame. There’s not much “redeeming” about this clown distancing himself from an obviously frivolous lawsuit that looks like it’s getting ready to blow up in their faces.

Limbaughsaphatkhunt May 20, 2015 at 9:05 pm

Although, if the city decides to go to court and call her bluff…there will be a jury. If the jury finds for the plaintiff and awards 20 million instead of five, will you be satisfied?

The point I am making is that frivolous or not, many eyebrow raising dollar amounts are awarded to litigants by juries through the normal legal channels.

Mike at the Beach May 20, 2015 at 11:56 pm

Mmmmmmkay. Totally not what we’re talking about, but I hear you. My comment was that Fat Al deserves no credit for distancing himself from this BS suit- he’s only doing so out of political expediency. There are, as you say, ridiculous jury verdicts and settlements from time to time, but most are internet mythology. The vast majority of suits are losers (esp. since the last round of tort reform), and even some of the crazy front-page jury verdicts get overturned later (and reported on p. 16 thereafter).

Rapid Text May 20, 2015 at 5:09 pm

Millions want to rip Sharpton’s head off and shit down his neck. His daughter is a lying skank just like her father. Both are dirty trashy sacks of stinky poopoo.

shifty henry May 20, 2015 at 6:06 pm

From the article title I was thinking that GOD had demanded Al repent all of his sins and then die…..

shifty henry May 20, 2015 at 6:12 pm

Maybe by tomorrow there will be 2 new articles so that I don’t have to see this turd’s face each time I open Fitsnews …..

If Sharpton draws this much fire from Southern white folks…he must be doing something right!
