Question for Al Sharpton: If Donald Sterling is banned from the NBA for racism, shouldn’t you be banned from TV?

Via the Daily Surge, which has a longer list of racially charged Sharpton bon mots from over the years than Jason Mattera is able to get to in the clip. Love him or hate him, you should respect the reverend for his achievement: It’s a rare man who begins his “career” pushing phony racial scandals and inciting violence against Jews and ends up hosting the president of the United States at rallies. How many among us have the political savvy to rebound from saying things like “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house” to participating semi-seriously in Democratic presidential debates? The guy’s been sufficiently rehabilitated that he now has his very own show every night at 6 p.m. on America’s “progressive” cable news network despite the fact that he palpably doesn’t prepare beforehand at all. And by “rehabilitated,” I mean that his many sins are politely tolerated by liberal power-brokers in the name of keeping him inside the tent pissing out instead of outside the tent pissing in.
People keep telling me the race card is maxed out. He’s managed his line of credit pretty well, though, no?
