Greeting to all and welcome new friends to the EastWing.
It’s interesting to note that Al Capone owed $150,000.00 in back taxes to the IRS and he was sent to prison. Al Sharpton owes $4,500,000.00 in back taxes to the IRS and he gets invited to the White House. Now I don’t know about you, but to me that just don’t seem right.
Best I can surmise, Rev. Al has become the official Court Jester for the Obama White House. Of course having a court jester is most appropriate when you consider the fact the Secretary of State of the United States took an acoustic guitarist to Paris to perform “You got a friend” as a explanation for the President of the United States not going to Paris with the rest of the world leaders to show support for the French in their fight with Islamic terrorist. Oh, I forgot our president does not say “Islamic Terrorist” ‘cause that might offend an Islamic Terrorist somewhere to be called an Islamic Terrorist by the President of the United States.
The latest con game to come from the White House official Court Jeter, Al Sharpton, is the funny story reported by the Washington Times. They report that Reverend Al announced he was holding an “emergency meeting” to discuss Hollywood’s all-white list of Oscar nominees and talk about possible action against the Academy Awards’ powers-who-be.”
“The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains,” he said in a statement reported by Business Insider. “The higher you get, the whiter it gets. … I have called an emergency meeting early next week in Hollywood with the task force to discuss possible action around the Academy Awards.”
Now bear in mind this is only the second time in the last 20 years that only white folks were nominated for best actor, actress or director Oscars, so it’s not like there’s a continuing pattern of racism here.
But I’ll tell you where there IS a clear pattern of racism. It’s in the NFL, the National Football League!
I did a quick review of the starting line-ups for the four playoff teams (Seahawks, Packers, Colts and Patriots) and 65 percent of those players are black. I’d say that’s a little lop-sided. Considering blacks make up only around 14 percent of the U.S. population, I wonder why Rev. Al has not resolved this racism issue in the NFL.
And don’t get me started about the racism in the NBA! If you want to talk about no diversity in honoring excellence, look at the recipients of the Most Valuable Player awards over the last 58 years.
It’s shocking! Seventy-eight percent of all MVPs in history have been black! Boy, I’d say the NBA is way too black. We ought to hold an emergency meeting to discuss possible action against the NBA, right Al? Lets march on this one. I mean it’s simply not FAIR. In the NBA, it’s like outer space Al — the higher you get, the darker it gets.
I’m sure after the White House Court Jester fixes the movie industry he’ll turn his attention fixing tools to the NFL and the NBA once I’ve pointed these problems out. It’s a good thing Tiger Woods already fixed the Professional Golfing Association, else the jester’s work would be piling up.
Getting serious here for a moment, of all the blunders this current administration has created in the past six years, ignoring the world wide show of solidarity by many leaders of the free world has to rank right up there with some of the antics of former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlin. And we all know of his miscalculations of world events.
Then when you think you’ve seen it all, Our Secretary of State takes a guitar player to Paris to sing You’ve got a friend….. WOW ! What in the world are these people thinking about. Although I do recall that in the past when asked about the National Anthem, the President did say he would prefer “I’d like to teach the world to sing”. I guess they’ve started.
Guess now all I gotta do is set back and wait for the email to bring all the fire calling me a racist for calling Rev. Al a Court Jester. Well all I can say to that is in the medieval courts there was always one fool, seems that today we have at least a pair probably three of a kind, or maybe even a full house. All bets are down.
Stay safe in Iraq and Afghanistan.
