I don’t usually agree with Whoopi Goldberg because her views run counter to mine. She usually takes the wrong position on issues (she would think the same of me) and I find it difficult to listen to her most times. I think she is a talented actress and has done some good work but her antics with regard to our elected leaders has overshadowed her talent.
Having said that, I agree with what she said on the daily gab fest known as The View. She was discussing Al Sharpton and his demand that Isiah Thomas apologize to the woman that Thomas was recently found guilty of sexually harassing. Sharpton gave Thomas until Friday to apologize of the master race baiter will be out with his minions protesting. I find it interesting that Sharpton is taking a black man to task but that is beside the point here. It is none of Sharpton’s business. This was a matter between Thomas and the woman and the court that decided the issue. Sharpton has no say in the matter and should keep his mouth shut.
Goldberg, to her credit, discussed this and then said that Sharpton needed to apologize to the Duke lacrosse players. Goldberg indicated that she would take up the sign of protest once Sharpton made things right with the Duke players. She should not hold her breath because Sharpton has a history of running his mouth, accusing people, and inciting riots and then walking away as if he did something good. Sharpton is responsible for the deaths of people (coincidentally, all eight were Jewish) and he has never apologized. He refused to apologize to the guy who caught up in his support of Tawana Brawley and her admitted lies about being raped. The court ruled against him in the lawsuit and he paid the man a settlement decided by the court but he refused to apologize.
Sharpton never went to Duke but he was interviewed about the case and he made it clear that the woman deserved justice. He made it clear that the prosecutor must have a good case or he would not prosecute it. Sharpton did not presume innocence, he took the side of the woman even though there were gaping holes in her story. This transcript of his conversation with Bill O’Reilly makes it clear.
Al Sharpton sent Whoopi a letter stating that he owed no apology because he did not go to Duke and he took no position in the case. This is refuted by his interview with O’Reilly where Sharpton says he is on touch with the local NAACP and that they are advising people what happened. Sharpton says that we do not know what other evidence there is so we should wait before we try to discredit her. He dismissed the evidence that showed the boys could not have done it (DNA) and said we should proceed and let the court do its thing. We are supposed to discredit witnesses if they are lying so that cases get dropped quickly and lives do not get ruined.
Sharpton also indicated that he had apologized already. He told Whoopi he did not take a position and that there was no need to apologize and yet, he got all over Chris Wallace for asking if he would apologize and he told Wallace that he already had on his radio show. He either lied or wanted to make people think he apologized but his admission that he did leads me to believe he thought it necessary at the time.
Now it is not? Why did he not say that he had already apologized like he did to Wallace?
Once again, this guy is a waste of flesh and oxygen and he needs to keep his nose out of other people’s business. It is amazing to me that someone has not popped him by now. God knows if he can incite people to kill for him he can anger some to go against him.
UPDATE: I read this in the comments at Breitbart (linked above):
Duke Case (black victim, white defendants):
â€œWe have to assume the DA knows what heâ€™s doing.â€
Jena 6 Case (white victim, black defendants):
The DA is a racist.
That is all we need to read…
