Sharpton and Jackson Attack on Rush Limbaugh a “Racist Act,” Says Black Conservative

Washington, DC – This statement was issued today by Deneen Borelli of the national black leadership network Project 21:

The left-wing jihad against Rush Limbaugh is un-fair and un-American. Rush is being targeted simply because he is a conservative and a leading critic of President Obama’s wealth redistribution policies.

With conservative blood in the water, it’s predictable to see the “race card duo” – Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton – circling the victim. Since the election of the first black president, they have been searching for some white meat to feed on and Rush just happens to be a juicy target. Whipping up unjustified black anger is their specialty.

Frankly, I see their effort as “get whitie” – an inherent racist act.

It’s outrageous that the “race card duo” are worried about Rush buying a football team following a graphic example of black on black gang violence in Chicago – Jackson’s home town. As so-called black leaders they should be putting their time and effort in dealing with the human tragedies in the urban community: crime and failing schools and not a conservative exercising his right to play in the free market.
