Dick Cheny goes hunting,,,Al Sharpton uses Race Baiting
Yes it's that time of year again when Dick Cheney goes hunting and the left goes crazy...... well the left side of the web that is.
Seems Vice President Cheney went hunting in a small community 65 north of New York City at a hunting club that had a Confederate Flag being used as a window shade on a door in a garage.
Here is what "ThinkProgress" had to say about this "controversy";
The Daily News reports that officials with the Clove Valley Rod & Gun Club
belligerently refused to respond to the controversy:
Club officials threatened a reporter with arrest when he sought comment.
The Confederate flag has historically been used by Republican operatives to galvanize conservative activists. While Cheney’s office says it did not see the flag, it has yet to condemn the club for hanging the divisive symbol of hate.
Oh yes "thinkprogress"... every "Republican Operative" gets one confederate flag in their Necon propaganda package. Morons!
Of course it's Reverend Al Sharpton who is "outraged" by this. The good "Reverend" said he may even head up to the Sportsman Club to hold a "prayer vigil".
Sharpton demanded Cheney distance himself from the exclusive club where the Stars and Bars was flown, and said he might hold a prayer vigil there.
"This is an outrage - he ought to leave immediately," Sharpton told The News. "He ought to apologize to the American people for being there in the first place."
The flag fiasco is especially upsetting because blacks have recently been subjected to an upsurge of racial threats, including nooses left in Jena, La., and Columbia University, he said.
Last time Sharpton lied and invented a race baiting controversy an innocent community was torn apart a man named Steven Pagones had his life ruined, a good cop killed himself and Al Sharpton has still not paid for the damages he caused Steven Pagones with his race baiting lies in Dutchess County regarding the Tawana Brawley HOAX
I wonder if Al Sharpton will put as much of his phony raice baiting efforts towards these uses of the Confederate Flag?
