Civil rights leader and MSNBC host Al Sharpton threatened to accuse Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona of "supporting racism" over their approval of the Senate filibuster. "The pressure that we are going to put on Sinema and Manchin is calling [the filibuster] racist and saying that they are, in effect, supporting racism," Sharpton told Politico. "Why would they be wedded to something that has those results? Their voters need to know that." Sharpton is part of a larger push from the left to eliminate the filibuster in order to pass Democrats' election and voting

While good men die young all the time, lying, crooked, filthy, racist human trash like Sharpton manage to live on, causing their harm every day of their evil lives. Proof that Satan supports his own.

That calling a person a racist is getting old. Sharpton saying this just shows there is no reason for anyone to support the filibuster if the threat has to be being called a racist. All political.

I cannot think of anything that would make me less concerned than to be called racist by the premier race baiter of this country. To Al if you are white you are racist. Why should any white man worry about such an accusation coming from this phony preacher.

The Roman republic government was based on having each elected official that could propose laws to the legislature be paired with a co-counsel. This way they would have to agree on the law before it could be brought forward and no one (except a special "dictator") could impose their own will. This worked for about 300 years. It was eventually abandoned when one counsel, Lucius Cornelius Sulla, who wanted a land reform law passed simply had his loyal followers beat the co-counsel to death. This violent solution soon became commonplace and was a key reason for the fall of the Roman Republic.

Does this racist idiot know what state Manchin represents?!?!?!? He fooled the WV voters into thinking he was a conservative Demon-Rat, but he is quickly proving to them that he is not. If he votes for this insanity, well I would say he is done, but I think he is already done after voting to impeach President Trump. But, then again, with their mastery of election theft, the Demon-Rats can pretty much assure any Demon-Rat with a victory if they so desire. So I guess how the people back home perceive his votes means nothing if the Demon-Rat power players decide to go full vote cheating for him!!!

Just because Sharpton has telegraphed his threat of a bogus charge of racism, you can't look at this threat through the lens of a Normal American because Manchin and Sinema are democrat politicians, which makes them abnormal Americans. We may not care about being called racists by Sharpton but I bet those two dems care.
