Lack of respect, part God only knows.

Somehow I didn’t find this the least bit surprising. Liberals like Al Sharpton and Jay Rockefeller don’t have any respect for the Second Amendment; what makes anyone think they’d have any respect for the First? And Rush should be taken off the air for “perceived” offenses? Somehow I think Sharpton thinks the mere existence of Rush Limbaugh is an offense to minorities. Say what you will about Rush, but at least he never falsely accused anyone of rape. From Nordlinger’s column:

“One of those whom Sharpton and his partners accused (of Tawana Brawley’s rape — ed.) was an assistant district attorney, Steven Pagones, who was, needless to say, innocent (the crime never took place). After he was cleared, he held a press conference, which Sharpton, in his theatrical fashion, attempted to crash. ‘Your accuser has arrived!’ he bellowed. Sharpton had said before, ‘We stated openly that Steven Pagones did it. If we’re lying, sue us, so we can go into court with you and prove you did it. Sue us — sue us right now.’ Oddly enough, Pagones did. He spent a decade of his life pursuing a defamation case against Sharpton and his accomplices, finally winning that case one glorious, cleansing day in July of 1998.”

That was a hell of a lot more than a “perceived offense,” yet Sharpton retained his freedom of speech. Yet he goes off saying that certain people need to be muzzled because of “perceived offenses.” What a thoroughgoing asshole.
