Is Al Sharpton a terrorist?

  1. I think he promotes hate and racism.

    I don't know if I would call him a terrorist, but he's a liberal activist almost solely focused on racial issues. What bothers me is his aggressive approach and tendency to shoot from the hip, judge situations quickly and act to bring down his opponents. That, coupled with his ability to energize a significant number of similar minded other activists, is a recipe for disaster in a racially divided context. He often acts with little regard for fairness across racial lines and ends up hurting the cause of justice for all. His relatively recent journalistic activities, loaded with all sorts of biased opinions, make him almost a menace to any of us who try to be fair, and we tend to turn him off, discount everything he says.

    Al Sharpton is a race hustler, but not a terrorist.

    I wish he was a suicide bomber. Not to kill anyone else - just himself. :D

    Well, I guess he could go visit Jessie Jackass or Eric Holder.

    The stuff he says is so profoundly ignorant that I can't listen for more than a few seconds. The man can barely express himself and his appearance is offputting as well. Kind of a trashy dude imo.
