    If he's responsible for this, then Palin is responsible for Gabby Giffords. I don't believe that's true in either case, but at least I'm consistent and not just flailing around for a way to blame somebody because I don't like their politics.

    Would the left be up in arms? Of course they would but here its crickets.
    Why would a civil rights leader say something about killing black people? I would say that person isn't a civil rights leader, unless you think whites have different civil rights.

    You mean like that liberal hero Paul Krugman did:

    http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/201...-arizona/?_r=0

    The link between Palin and the shooting of Giffords existed only in the twisted minds of liberals. Actual linkage between liberal hate speech and the murder of the two police officers is clear as day.

    You really do not get it, do you? Sharpton is baiting inner city African Americans and inciting them to protest and riot. Why are you attempting to inject right wingers?

    If he's responsible for this, then Palin is responsible for Gabby Giffords. I don't believe that's true in either case, but at least I'm consistent and not just flailing around for a way to blame somebody because I don't like their politics.
    That is a very goofy strawman argument. How can you compare Palin making a few pro-2nd amendment speeches with Sharpton rushing to the airport to inject himself into every "cop kills black man" incident that hits the news?

    You have precisely missed the point (if you even saw one). If this was reversed you'd be all over it, and my example was a hypothetical-because there aren't civil rights leaders or protesters calling for blacks to be killed.

    Prove that they're the same people. Or do they all look alike to you?

    Please link to where Sharpton has called for violence.

    But, ya no, what are minor details like that to the mass media?
    Actually the activist groups once all assembled for the march later broke away from the crowd given different directions where they could cause the most havoc. Some groups were directed toward the Brooklyn Bridge. Others were sent to main arteries of the city to cause congestion and mayhem, etc. This can be verified by following the hash tags of the protest groups on Twitter and other social media.

    Kind of like those 'nawthin' agitatas' that got the 'coloreds' all stirred up during the Civil Rights era, right? I'll say one thing for you guys on the Far Right. You are consistent.
