That same year, Sharpton again demonstrated that the reins of the civil rights movement were in the firm grasp of the most expert hands when he eloquently informed an audience at New Jersey’s Kean College: “White folks was in the caves while we [blacks] was building empires … We built pyramids before Donald Trump ever knew what architecture was … we taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.” One can only speculate as to how many of those in attendance may have wondered whether Sharpton had excerpted those electrifying passages from Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” speech. In response to a few squeamish critics who later suggested that Sharpton’s reference to homosexuals may have bordered on the insensitive, the good Reverend condescended to inform the nervous ninnies that, lo and behold, the word “homos” was “not a homophobic term.”

Sharpton’s Kean College speech also featured his uplifting assertion that America’s founders consisted of “the worst criminals, the rejects they sent from Europe … to the colonies.” “So [if] some cracker,” Sharpton continued with his characteristic elocution, “come and tell you, ‘Well my mother and father blood go back to the Mayflower,’ you better hold you pocket. That ain’t nothing to be proud of, that means their forefathers was crooks.” As for those few jittery souls who recoiled at Sharpton’s use of the term “cracker,” the good Reverend was more than prepared to educate them: “Cracker,” Sharpton said instructively, was merely a “colloquial term used to describe a certain kind of bigot, who hates both blacks and Jews. It’s certainly not a racist term and certainly not an anti-Semitic term, because a cracker hates Jews and blacks.” Because such etymological subtleties generally escape the understanding of the average American imbecile, we evidently ought to be grateful that the civil rights movement is currently guided by an intellectual and moral giant like the Reverend Sharpton. How tragic it would be if a Johnny-come-lately like Glenn Beck – or any other “white interloper,” to borrow a term from the holy man’s lexicon – should be so brazen as to try to steer the movement off its current path of interminable racial grievance.

Beck devoted his DC gathering Saturday to the themes of Honor, Character, Faith, Hope, and Charity. How utterly presumptuous of him, or anyone else, to think that they could teach anything about those lofty traits to a civil rights leader as great as Al Sharpton. Lead on, gracious Reverend. Lead on.
