Congressman Matt Gaetz exposes reverend Al Sharpton during house judiciary hearing on policing practices.
“What I was saying was clearly that I have disagreed with blacks and whites. I have used language graphically sometimes to do so, some of which I have grown beyond. But none of which shows anything other than I am an equal-opportunity attacker.”
Guessing ole Al wasn’t expecting

A House Judiciary Committee hearing on policing erupted Thursday after GOP Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz confronted Al Sharpton over anti-Semitic and anti-white remarks he has allegedly made throughout his career.
During the hearing, Gaetz used his allotted time to read quotes attributed to Sharpton about Jewish people, whites and some blacks.
“Have you ever referred to members of the Jewish faith as ‘white interlopers’ or ‘diamond merchants?’” Gaetz asked at one point during a tense back-and-forth.
“No sir, I referred to one in Harlem, an individual,” Sharpton acknowledged.
Sharpton also said he did not recall quotes attributed to him regarding “crackers” and “homos.” More
The disgusting part are the Democrats, they went on and on about how Al was being attacked. However, they have no issues at all with attacking witnesses. It is always a different set of rules for Democrats.

Democrats can badger Republicans and it is fine but if a Republican asks a question it’s considered an attack. So the take away from this is simple. If you’re black you can say whatever you want and then claim that you don’t recollect what you said. So sick of the bias and double standards. How about you?

So typical Weasel Nadler, fails to follow rules again. That little man with his gavel is as corrupt and unethical as they come. As for Sharpton, anyone who has been alive since the 70’s know that he is a racist and a bigot!
