    Kobie, Sharpton is so lucky to have you around defending his actions. Way to go.

    Well I agree with you that they are leftists. A rose and a red star says it all. Remember the professor that was arrested during the march in NYC that day for assaulting officers on the Brooklyn Bridge? He is a member of this group.

    Did Sharpton's "rhetoric" contribute to the heated atmosphere? Yes. So has the "rhetoric" of the President, of various police officers, of various TV personalities, of Fox News, of CNN, of the New York Times or the New York Post, and everyone else commenting heavily about this issue, because it's helped to cause to grow to ridiculous proportions.

    But did it contribute to the murder of two police officers? No. It's ridiculous to claim that an individuals speech that in no way directly incites, calls for, or directs people to commit a crime, "contributed" to murder.

    Just as I said it was ridiculous to suggest that Tea Partiers or Sarah Palin "contributed" to the the murder of the little girl and the shooting of Gabby Giffords when people erroneously threw out such accusations (doubly stupidly, since it finally came out he wasn't a tea partier). And just as it would be ridiculous to accuse those people who created the "Zeitgiest" movie for the shooting. And just like it's ridiculous to suggest the Tea Party or Bundy Supporters "Contributed" to the death of Las Vegas Police Officers wrapped in "Don't tread on me" flags. It's ridiculous to blame Sharpton for the murder in this case. IF you want to cast blame at him in part for the over all enflamed atmosphere surrounding these cases, that's reasonable. That's entirely different than suggesting he actively contributed to the MURDER.
    However it's not unreasonable to claim that Al Sharpton has blood on his hands for fomenting the radical race baiting atmosphere of these protests. Without Sharpton rushing to the airport and heading to every locale where an African American is killed by a cop and fomenting unrest, I don't think the rally where they were chanting "What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!" or the murder of the two cops would have occurred.

    If you want to talk about whether or not those individuals in that particular crowd "contributed" to those deaths, that's at least a more reasonable argument, as you have a legitimate argument in terms of "inciting" the murder when you're talking about people actually directly advocating for the illegal activity in question.

    But that has nothing to do with Sharpton.
    Without Sharpton's stirring the pot, most of those protesters would not be there.

    Al Sharpton is a race baiting thug who should be in prison for tax evasion.

    Pointing out your blatant lies =/= "defending his actions."

    Nobody ever protested anything before Al Sharpton came on the scene.
