Before MSNBC host Joe Scarborough turned into a far-leftist who now willingly hobnobs with notorious race hustler Al Sharpton and repeats Democrat Party talking points verbatim, he used to be a Republican congressman.
But not just any Republican congressman. Scarborough was the type who detested men like Sharpton. In fact, on March 8th, 2000, he sponsored a resolution “condemning the racist and anti-Semitic views of the Reverend Al Sharpton.”
The resolution correctly noted that Sharpton had:
♦ “referred to members of the Jewish faith as ‘bloodsucking [J]ews’, and ‘Jew bastards’”;
♦ “referred to members of the Jewish faith as ‘white interlopers’ and ‘diamond merchants’”;
♦ been “found guilty of defamation by a jury in a New York court arising from the false accusation that former Assistant District Attorney Steven Pagones, who is white, raped and assaulted a fifteen year-old black girl”;
♦ “refused to accept responsibility and expresse[d] no regret for defaming Mr. Pagones”;
♦ “incited widespread violence, riots, and the murder of five innocent people” during the Freddy’s Fashion Mart debacle in Harlem;
♦ “incited violence, riots, and murder” during the Crown Heights debacle in Brooklyn;
♦ once led a protest in which he’d marched “next to a protester with a sign that read, ‘The White Man is the Devil'”;
♦ “insulted members of the Jewish faith by challenging Jews to violence and stating to Jews to ‘pin down’ their yarmulkes”;
♦ and “made inflammatory remarks against whites by characterizing the death of Amadou Diallo as a ‘racially motivated police ‘assassination.'”
The accusations against Sharpton are readily accepted as the gospel in the real world.
One of my staffers was a child when his father and brother were nearly murdered by an angry mob egged on by “Reverend Al” during the Crown Heights Riots of 1991, and remembers him leading the chant of “No Justice, No Peace”!

While @KamalaHarris praises Al Sharpton, she should remember the time he caused riots in Harlem and encouraged the arson of a Jewish owned business killing seven innocents and Sharpton’s thug.
As one of the cops who worked those riots, I remember.https://t.co/VpCxie8M7c

Sharpton instigated the Crown Heights riot and Freddy’s Fashion Mart attack. Some of us won’t ever forget that https://t.co/sCMeU9luFS

Yet years later, Scarborough can now be found on MSNBC sitting alongside Sharpton as they both trash-talk the right and accuse it of being the one that traffics in racism and division. During a “Morning Joe” segment last Tuesday, for instance, he and Sharpton both eagerly blamed the white supremacist mass shooting in Buffalo, New York on the entire right, including the Republican Party and Fox News.
As previously reported, the suspected shooter, Payton Gendron, was obsessed with the white supremacist and anti-Semitic great replacement theory. But leftists like Scarborough have purposefully conflated the great replacement theory with legitimate discussions about the effects of illegal migration on demographics and voting patterns so that they can attack the right.
“Reverend, of course, it’s hard to always monitor every dark corner of the internet, of social media. But we do know that there are Republican leaders in the House, the United States Congress. We do know there’s a powerful news network. We do know that there are powerful voices on the Trump right that are pushing the great replacement theory,” Scarborough said on Tuesday.
“There have been studies, there have been articles, it’s not hard to see if we open our eyes that you actually have people that are doing everything they can to get more viewers, to make more money, to get more people listening to their podcasts, to get more followers online by pushing white grievance against brown and black people. Turning whites against blacks, whites against Hispanics, whites against Muslims, whites against Jews.”
Scarborough in particular has also conflated Sharpton, a lifelong race hustler and antagonizer, with a thoughtful pundit who deserves to sit by his side. Critics say it’s because in his heart, the MSNBC host has become no different than Sharpton.
As one critic wrote on Twitter, “[I]t’s nice to know you’ve turned into the very race hustler you accused Al Sharpton of being. You’re disgusting dude.”
Add to this the fact that Scarborough works on a network that regularly pushes blatantly racist, hate-filled content out to the public:

Yet again, despite being surrounded by hate and division, Scarborough frequently feels compelled to deliver holier-than-thou rants about how everybody else — Republicans, Fox News, Trump voters, really anyone with a dissenting voice — is this, that, and the other.
Critics say that what he needs most in life, besides anger management therapy, is a mirror …
Look in the mirror Joey with all the rascist ignorant talking heads of MSDNC
