Heh heh. Conservatives should always remember to give Dr. West and Tavis Smiley the credit they deserve for standing up to the bullies on the professional Left and daring to publicly criticize Barack Obama's Godless, pro-gay agenda:
Public intellectual Cornel West tore into this week’s speeches surrounding the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.‘s “I Have a Dream” speech as lacking in “truth,” blasting speakers like President Obama and Rev. Al Sharpton as having given a “sanitized” verison of Dr. King’s vision.RELATED: Rush Limbaugh: Liberals Turning Dr. King Into ‘Billboard,’ ‘Advertisement’ for Their Agenda
“Brother Martin himself, I think, would’ve been turning over in his grave,” West said of the event. “[King would have wanted] people to talk about Wall Street criminality, he wants people to talk about war crimes, or drones dropping bombs on innocent people,” he asserted.
“Instead,” he lamented, “we saw the coronation of the bonafide house negro of the Barack Obama plantation, our dear brother Al Sharpton.” West then declared that Sharpton’s decline was “supported by [MSNBC analyst] Michael Dyson and others who’ve prostituted themselves in a very ugly and vicious way.”
West and his co-host Tavis Smiley both lamented that black leadership has become “so sold-out” so as not to have the courage to be a “bull in the china shop,” break rank, and talk about “racism, poverty, and militarism” at an otherwise “bought-out” event.
This is not the first time West has referred to Sharpton as being “on the Obama plantation.” The radio host made the same claim in July when he felt Sharpton did not advocate hard enough for a Department of Justice “civil rights” prosecution against the recently-acquitted George Zimmerman.
