Sharpton: GOP In Mad Rush To Its Extreme “White” Wing



Al Sharpton tore into GOP candidate Rick Santorum on his MSNBC show Wednesday night, who he described as “one of the most right-wing candidates” in the Republican primary race.

Sharpton was discussing what he called the Republican party’s desire to find a “non-Mitt Romney” candidate, which has resulted in the emergence of many “flavors of the month.” Sharpton added, “Each one has really been the extremist of the month, and Rick Santorum may just have been the most bitter taste of all.”

Sharpton played clips of Santorum articulating his positions opposing abortions and same-sex marriage. He also played a clip of Santorum discussing the “dangers of contraception.”

Sharpton summed up his thoughts and said, “Folks, the Republican Party has been in a mad rush to its extreme white wing, and Rick Santorum has been there waiting the whole time.” (Of course, Sharpton probably intended to say “extreme right wing.”)

  1. It is important that we vote these Democrats out of office and start with a fresh new Republican Administration that does not pass immoral laws and trash the constitution the way this administration does.

  2. I’m not concerned with white or black, as much as I am with honest and mentally stable. The world does not seem to be aware of what mentally stable is, because Sharpton is not at all.

  3. What happened to the moderate Republicans of the Eisenhower years? Remember when we had two rational political parties and the country actually worked? In order for us to climb out of the hole we’re in we need the Right and the Left to meet in the Center, and work together for the good of the country.
