Al Sharpton poked fun at the Glenn Beck rally in Washington, D.C., saying some participants were the same ones who used to call civil rights leaders troublemakers (TNT, 8-29). And this is a comment from a man who revels in traveling around the country causing trouble.
Just how does Sharpton know those attending the Beck rally ever called civil rights leaders troublemakers? Is it likely some of those attending Sharpton’s counter rally are the same ones who stood in the polling places wearing paramilitary garb and displaying clubs to intimidate those they disagreed with?
For Sharpton to call anyone a troublemaker is the height of hypocrisy.
