By Kerry Picket|Washington Times
Reverend Al Sharpton appeared on MSNBC on Monday and talked about his upcoming meetings at the FCC that he hopes will result in throwing talk radio host Rush Limbaugh off the airwaves. Transcript via Real Clear Politics (bolding is mine)
“We’re not going to stand by and let publicly regulated radio and television just go for marketing and promoting this kind of racism,” Al Sharpton said about his campaign to take Rush Limbaugh off the airwaves.
“Rush Limbaugh has the right to say whatever he wants to say, he does not have the right, though, to do it on publicly regulated airwaves. The FCC has the responsibility to set standards,” Sharpton added.
“You can’t say — in the name of free speech, you can’t say anything you want,” Al Sharpton said on MSNBC. “We’re not talking about stopping free speech,” he added.
“We’re not telling Rush don’t say what you want to say, say it at home, not on public airwaves,” he concluded.
It is remarkable Reverend Sharpton is touting a phrase (bolded above) so often used by those who seek to censor Judeo-Christian activity or themes from the public square. However, it is hardly shocking he expressed himself this way.
After all, even as someone who calls himself a man of God, Rev. Sharpton, like most liberals, equate political views to religious beliefs. His call for the FCC to dump Mr. Limbaugh is not the first time someone has tried to muzzle the famous talk radio host.
We live in dangerous times folks……..
