Norman Rosenbaum Joins Rush in Battling Al Sharpton


norman-rosenbaumThe feud between Rush Limbaugh and the Rev. Al Sharpton has drawn in the brother of Crown Heights riot victim Yankel Rosenbaum, who called Sharpton a “racist bigot” yesterday. Norman Rosenbaum, whose 29-year-old brother was killed during the riot, pledged to do “whatever I can” to help Limbaugh if Sharpton goes through with his threat to sue.Sharpton has taken umbrage with Limbaugh’s Op-Ed in The Wall Street Journal, which accused him of playing a “leading role” in the 1991 riots, and is threatening a lawsuit.

“He was a divisive, old-fashioned, racist bigot,” Rosenbaum said from his home in Australia, while at the same time admitting that he didn’t “spark the riots.”

The feud with Limbaugh began when Sharpton criticized his involvement with an investment group trying to buy the St. Louis Rams. Limbaugh was booted by the other investors last week.

Sharpton said Rosenbaum had “every right to insult me,” but added that no one “has a right to accuse me of inciting a riot.”

  1. While he may have caught Rush on a technicality. ain’t nobody in his right mind going to say that Sharpton hasn’t incited riots. That’s his thing! Yousef Hawkins, Tawana Brawley, 125th street! Taht’s all he does! Oh, besides for being a tax cheat and a charity abuser! He does that too! He certainly fanned the riots in Crown Heights! And don’t think that that had nothing to do with Ari Halberstam’s p’tira!
    Rush, go for his head! Boar’s Head Brand will sell it thereafter!
