Companies Shaken Down by Al Sharpton and His National Action Network

alsharptonThis list is directly from The Electric Stove from Allman in the Morning on 97.1 FM Talk:

Al Sharpton’s platform for his assault on Rush Limbaugh’s NFL ownership bid was the National Action Network (NAN), which is bankrolled by corporate America.

The following companies were identified this year by NAN as sponsors:

American Honda, Anheuser Busch, Colgate-Palmolive, Comcast, Entergy, Ford Motor Company, Home Depot, Johnson & Johnson, Macy’s, PepsiCo, Pfizer and Wal-Mart. Sponsorship reportedly cost $50,000.

 I doubt all of the companies support the actions of Al Sharpton, but they might want to know if their customers object to this support.  I’m sure they throw him some money just to get him to go away – kind of like what parents do with their kids from time to time, “fine, have a piece of candy and go away for five minutes.”

Of course, this is just my opinion.

  1. Here is a script for those who want to call. They may want to use this when they call WalMart Customer Service,

    caller: I am calling on behalf of “White guys complaining that other white guys with money.” I want to register my extreme displeasure that white guys with money can’t be grossly offensive to other races and get any respect in St Louis.

    walmart: Hi, this is WalMart Customer Service. Was this at a WalMart store Sir?

    caller: No, it was at a Football Stadium.

    walmart: I see. Did you witness this in person?

    caller: No, I heard it on the radio.

    walmart: I see. Did you buy the radio at a WalMart?

    caller: no, it’s my car radio.

    caller: hello?

    caller: hello?

    caller: hello?

    caller: hello?

    caller: hello?

  2. Straight out of Rush Limbaugh’s WSJ article, fresh racism:

    “When Mr. Goodell was asked about me, he suggested that my 2003 comment criticizing the media’s coverage of Donovan McNabb—in which I said the media was cheerleading Mr. McNabb because they wanted a successful black quarterback—fell short of the NFL’s “high standard.” High standard? Half a decade later, the media would behave the same way about the presidential candidacy of Mr. Obama.

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704322004574477021697942920.html?mod=WSJ_hpp_RIGHTTopCarousel

    Racism can be many things, including suggestion that people wan Mr Obama not for the quality of his ideas but because of race alone.

    Rush would never say this about a white candidate. He would address their ideas, where their ideas are going to take the country. But not Obama. For Rush, the media loves Obama for race alone.

    I know that conservatives in St Louis (those who listen to 97.1 at least) are all wound up over Rush, and Sharpton, and Jackson. Rush provided the answer. It is about race and it is racism.

  3. Yup Mike. You’re probably right. Racism is rampant everything in everything all the time. We might as well all don white hoods or black panther garb and just get it over with.

    Race is a huge reason the media likes Obama. There really is little dispute there. Not the only reason, but a reason. Helping to elect the first black president was a major goal for NBC and their affiliate networks – can’t speak for sure on the others.

    The NFL did want a sucessful black quarterback. What’s the big deal about that. He said what others were thinking. Not racism – opinion. I never understood the big deal.

  4. Rush and you are both saying skin color, not ability – then complain when people call you for making comments based on race.

    Why not just speak of Obama in terms of ability (whether he has, or hasn’t)? Instead, you and Rush are pointing to race as the reason.

    Those comments suggest that Obama would not have become president were it not for skin color. In essence that he has no ability, just skin color – and you wonder why people are offended and call that racist?

    I never said “Racism is rampant everything in everything all the time.” You are making up false statements – and then complain that behavior is bad and awful.

    I would say that the only reason you can make false statements is cause you are white, not because of ability, not because of any lack of reasoning, just because you are white.

    And I’ll go further. You want a rich obnoxious white guy to buy the football team because he is white, not because of ability.

    Offended. You should be. It was an example of how blacks feel when you say the same about Obama.

    Let’s get back to real: Rush is obnoxious and has made many derogatory comments about blacks. It is because of his ability to do so. Any surprises everyone else doesn’t like it?

  5. Rush and you are both saying skin color, not ability – then complain when people call you for making comments based on race.

    Just responding to the story. The story had nothing to do with ability and everything to do with people crying racism.

    Why not just speak of Obama in terms of ability (whether he has, or hasn’t)? Instead, you and Rush are pointing to race as the reason.

    Are you serious? That’s a ridiculous statement.

    Those comments suggest that Obama would not have become president were it not for skin color. In essence that he has no ability, just skin color – and you wonder why people are offended and call that racist?

    Actually, I said that was part of it. He has plenty of ability but I don’t share his outlook for America. Who is offended?

    I never said “Racism is rampant everything in everything all the time.” You are making up false statements – and then complain that behavior is bad and awful.

    Did I say you said that? No. You just assumed that I was talking about you. If you would lighten up a little you might have recognized that as sarcasm to make a point. If I would have attached your name to it, that would have been, how did you say it, “making false statements.”

    I would say that the only reason you can make false statements is cause you are white, not because of ability, not because of any lack of reasoning, just because you are white.

    Yup, that must be it.

    And I’ll go further. You want a rich obnoxious white guy to buy the football team because he is white, not because of ability. Offended. You should be. It was an example of how blacks feel when you say the same about Obama.

    Rush is white? Oh my gosh. Call the presses!
    Why would I be offended? The whole thrust of the original post was that a few black players and the typical race merchants were parading around using fake quotes and haughty idealism.

    Let’s get back to real: Rush is obnoxious and has made many derogatory comments about blacks. It is because of his ability to do so. Any surprises everyone else doesn’t like it?

    Yes, I know, all those listeners each week and no one likes him. Must be tough for Rush.
    If Rush were really making true derogatory comments about blacks then he wouldn’t have ANY support from ANY black individuals. As it is, he does. Point for Rush.
    Bottom line to this whole affair is I am tired of the “racist” or “racism” term being thrown around so casually. I knew I could count on you to continue the tradition.

  6. Your response to “Rush is obnoxious and has made many derogatory comments about blacks. It is because of his ability to do so. Any surprises everyone else doesn’t like it?”

    Your response: Yes, I know, all those listeners each week and no one likes him.

    Rush has listeners whose audience size is slightly smaller then National Public Radio’s listening audience. Notice that NPR’s listening audience doesn’t have listen to tirades and racially prejudicial material. No one would deny an NPR host ownership in an NFL team.

    The fact that Rush has alienated so many is the reason why he can’t be part owner in an NFL team – not Sharpton.

    Rush brought all of this on himself by continuously claiming that Obama won because of race and his very strong derogatory language about blacks and their role.

    Typical of Rush (and 97.1, and you) is to blame everyone but the conservative loudmouth. I like it. The more Rush is in the news over why he was denied permission by the NFL the more he reminds people he is an obnoxious loudmouth with serious issues over race.
