Comcast / MSNBC Should Cancel Sharpton TODAY

Yes­ter­day after­noon while peo­ple were busy protest­ing against police at the Mall of Amer­ica two police offi­cers in Brook­lyn were mur­dered exe­cu­tion style.

They were not in the process of vio­lat­ing tax laws passed by lib­er­als in the state of New York like Eric Gar­ner, they had not just robbed or mus­cled a store owner like Michael Brown, they were sim­ply in their car doing the job they were hired to do. Pro­tect­ing the pub­lic and were killed for it.

There are many who have for rat­ings & or finan­cial and polit­i­cal gain lion­ized those who have vio­lated the law and demo­nized those who enforce it over the last sev­eral week and months. They have done so pub­licly and proudly.

So when I see self-​serving tweets like this:

and this

and this

and this

and state­ments like this from the AG’s office:

“This was an unspeak­able act of bar­barism, and I was deeply sad­dened to hear of the loss of these two brave offi­cers in the line of duty,” Holder said in a state­ment. “On behalf of all those who serve in the United States Depart­ment of Jus­tice, I want to express my heart­felt con­do­lences to the offi­cers’ loved ones and colleagues.”

You will for­give me if I tend to doubt their sincerity

I don’t hold the igno­rant & naïve col­lege stu­dents who appar­ently were not taught by their par­ents the real­i­ties of life nor do I blame the igno­rant on twit­ter who are cheer­ing this, for I expect no bet­ter from them.

The peo­ple I have quoted above, how­ever, are pub­lic fig­ures and those fig­ures, elected and appointed, should know bet­ter. (I sub­mit DID know bet­ter yet charted their course anyway).

Mayor DiBla­sio & Barack Obama were law­fully elected and Eric Holder law­fully appointed to their pub­lic posi­tions. The peo­ple of the United States and New York City choose them there­fore they must live with the con­se­quences, how­ever out­ra­geous, of these choices, unless they choose to remove them­selves from office (Mr. Holder resigned months ago but still holds his office pend­ing the con­fir­ma­tion of his replace­ment) we are pretty much stuck with them.

How­ever Al Sharp­ton hasn’t been elected to any­thing, he is a TV host on the MSNBC net­work (Cur­rently owned by cable giant Com­cast) and MSNBC has cho­sen to give him a daily show on their network.

I sub­mit and sug­gest that by giv­ing his a pub­lic plat­form on their net­work MSNBC has endorsed his state­ments and actions of the last sev­eral months, and if they con­tinue to do so they implic­itly endorse the events of Sat­ur­day in NYC.

You might say, “But DaT­e­chGuy Mr. Sharp­ton has 1st Amend­ment rights” indeed he does, but said right does not extend to pro­gram­ing on MSNBC, if that was the case then I would demand one myself.

I call upon the net­work to imme­di­ately “sus­pend” Mr. Sharp­ton and remove his show from their lineup.

It is their net­work and they of course have the per­fect right to ignore my call for this action, con­versely I have the per­fect right to express my opin­ion that a fail­ure to do so is a direct endorse­ment of the events of Sat­ur­day after­noon by MSNBC and by their par­ent com­pany Com­cast and con­sumers should act accordingly.

The Com­cast con­tact page is here.

You can con­tact MSNBC here.

Or per­haps you might choose to con­tact their adver­tis­ers, I’m sure they must be delighted to have their brands asso­ci­ated with the face of the anti-​police move­ment at this time.

Clos­ing thought, If Com­cast decides the Rev Al is a lia­bil­ity & removes him from MSNBC & said reverend’s fol­low­ers quit the net­work in protest, would any­one be left watching?

Update 2nd poten­tial mur­der thwarted when gun jams:

A sec­ond slay attempt on NYPD offi­cers was nar­rowly avoided early Sun­day when a gunman’s weapon jammed as he took aim at two cops out­side a Bronx hous­ing project, sources said.

Inves­ti­ga­tors grabbed the wannabe cop killer after he dropped his gun and ran into the Mill­brook Houses on Saint Anns Ave. in Port Mor­ris, sources said.

Yup no pat­tern here.

Update: Ed Driscoll links and notes an advan­tage of Sharp­ton stay­ing where he is:

How­ever, rea­son­able peo­ple can dis­agree with Ingemi as to whether or not Sharp­ton should be dumped in the rapidly esca­lat­ing wake of the vio­lent protests Sharp­ton helped gin up. As with past anchors Keith Olber­man at his must lunatic, Alec Bald­win at his most vio­lent, and Mar­tin Bashir at his most scat­o­log­i­cal, Al Sharp­ton is the spokesman for MSNBC — and Com­cast — right now. After all, Sharp­ton is “all the things” its net­work pres­i­dent thinks “that MSNBC is.” as the network’s pres­i­dent says. And he’s a pow­er­ful daily reminder of just much hatred lurks in the hearts of the left:

A fair point, but I think pros­per­ity trumps it, addi­tion­ally the more we make the unac­cept­able accept­able the more we enable the next Sharp­ton, much bet­ter to make vice unac­cept­able and the fall of Sharp­ton might gen­er­ate courage in those who appease him.

We need to defeat him and make him feel defeated.

If course if you can do both, I’m fine with that too.

Con­sider Sub­scrib­ing to sup­port our lineup of John Ruberry (Marathon Pun­dit) on Sun­day Pat Austin (And so it goes in Shreve­port) on Mon­day Tim Imholt on Tues­day, AP Dil­lon (Lady Liberty1885) Thurs­days, Pas­tor George Kelly Fri­days, Steve Eggle­ston on Sat­ur­days with Baldilocks (Tue & Sat) and Fausta (Wed & Fri) of (Fausta Blog) twice a week.

Yesterday afternoon while people were busy protesting against police at the Mall of America two police officers in Brooklyn were murdered execution style.

They were not in the process of violating tax laws passed by liberals in the state of New York like Eric Garner, they had not just robbed or muscled a store owner like Michael Brown, they were simply in their car doing the job they were hired to do.  Protecting the public and were killed for it.

There are many who have for ratings & or  financial and political gain lionized those who have violated the law and demonized those who enforce it over the last several week and months.  They have done so publicly and proudly.

So when I see self-serving tweets like this:

and this

and this

and this

and statements like this from the AG’s office:

“This was an unspeakable act of barbarism, and I was deeply saddened to hear of the loss of these two brave officers in the line of duty,” Holder said in a statement. “On behalf of all those who serve in the United States Department of Justice, I want to express my heartfelt condolences to the officers’ loved ones and colleagues.”

You will forgive me if I tend to doubt their sincerity

I don’t hold the ignorant & naive  college students who apparently were not taught by their parents the realities of life nor do I blame the ignorant on twitter who are cheering this, for I expect no better from them.

The people I have quoted above, however,  are public figures and those figures,  elected and appointed,  should know better.  (I submit DID know better yet charted their course anyway).

Mayor DiBlasio & Barack Obama were lawfully elected and Eric Holder lawfully appointed to their public positions.  The people of the United States and New York City choose them therefore they must live with the consequences, however outrageous,  of these choices, unless they choose to remove themselves from office (Mr. Holder resigned months ago but still holds his office pending the confirmation of his replacement)  we are pretty much stuck with them.

However Al Sharpton hasn’t been elected to anything, he is a TV host on the MSNBC network (Currently owned by cable giant Comcast) and MSNBC has chosen to give him a daily show on their network.

I submit and suggest that by giving his a public platform on their network MSNBC has endorsed his statements and actions of the last several months, and if they continue to do so they implicitly endorse the events of Saturday in NYC.

You might say, “But DaTechGuy Mr. Sharpton has 1st Amendment rights” indeed he does, but said right does not extend to programing on MSNBC, if that was the case then I would demand one myself.

I call upon the network to immediately “suspend” Mr. Sharpton and remove his show from their lineup.

It is their network and they of course have the perfect right to ignore my call for this action, conversely I have the perfect right to express my opinion that a failure to do so is a direct endorsement of the events of Saturday afternoon by MSNBC and by their parent company Comcast and consumers should act accordingly.

The Comcast contact page is here.

You can contact MSNBC here.

Or perhaps you might choose to contact their advertisers, I’m sure they must be delighted to have their brands associated with the face of the anti-police movement at this time.

Closing thought, If Comcast decides the Rev Al is a liability & removes him from MSNBC & said reverend’s followers quit the network in protest, would anyone be left watching?

Update 2nd potential murder thwarted when gun jams:

A second slay attempt on NYPD officers was narrowly avoided early Sunday when a gunman’s weapon jammed as he took aim at two cops outside a Bronx housing project, sources said.

Investigators grabbed the wannabe cop killer after he dropped his gun and ran into the Millbrook Houses on Saint Anns Ave. in Port Morris, sources said.

Yup no pattern here.

Update: Ed Driscoll links and notes an advantage of Sharpton staying where he is:

However, reasonable people can disagree with Ingemi as to whether or not Sharpton should be dumped in the rapidly escalating wake of the violent protests Sharpton helped gin up. As with past anchors Keith Olberman at his must lunatic, Alec Baldwin at his most violent, and Martin Bashir at his most scatological, Al Sharpton is the spokesman for MSNBC — and Comcast — right now. After all, Sharpton is “all the things” its network president thinks “that MSNBC is.” as the network’s president says. And he’s a powerful daily reminder of just much hatred lurks in the hearts of the left:

A fair point, but I think prosperity trumps it, additionally the more we make the unacceptable acceptable the more we enable the next Sharpton, much better to make vice unacceptable and the fall of Sharpton might generate courage in those who appease him.

We need to defeat him and make him feel defeated.
