In Congress: "Morning"Joe Scarborough Introduced Bill To Condem Al Sharpton--On TV: Joe Is Very Quiet

Here's an interesting back story to MSNBC and racial arsonist Al Sharpton.Back in March of 2000, MSNBC morning host Joe Scarborough was Congressman Joe Scarborough  and he introduced House Resolution 270  condemning Al Sharpton as a racist and a bigot:

106th CONGRESS
2d Session
H. CON. RES. 270
Condemning the racist and anti-Semitic views of the Reverend Al Sharpton
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

March 8, 2000

Mr. SCARBOROUGH submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
Condemning the racist and anti-Semitic views of the Reverend Al Sharpton

Whereas the Congress strongly rejects the racist and incendiary actions of the Reverend Al Sharpton;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton has referred to members of the Jewish faith as `bloodsucking [J]ews', and `Jew bastards';

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton has referred to members of the Jewish faith as `white interlopers' and `diamond merchants';

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton was found guilty of defamation by a jury in a New York court arising from the false accusation that former Assistant District Attorney Steven Pagones, who is white, raped and assaulted a fifteen year-old black girl;

Whereas, to this day, the Reverend Al Sharpton has refused to accept responsibility and expresses no regret for defaming Mr. Pagones;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton's vicious verbal anti-Semitic attacks directed at members of the Jewish faith, and in particular, a Jewish landlord, arising from a simple landlord-tenant dispute with a black tenant, incited widespread violence, riots, and the murder of five innocent people;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton's fierce demagoguery incited violence, riots, and murder in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, New York, following the accidental death of a black pedestrian child hit by the motorcade of Orthodox Rabbi Menachem Schneerson;

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton led a protest in the Crown Heights neighborhood and marched next to a protester with a sign that read, `The White Man is the Devil';

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton has insulted members of the Jewish faith by challenging Jews to violence and stating to Jews to `pin down' their yarmulkes; and

Whereas the Reverend Al Sharpton has practiced the politics of racial division and made inflammatory remarks against whites by characterizing the death of Amadou Diallo as a `racially motivated police `assassination': Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That the Congress--
      (1) condemns the practices of the Reverend Al Sharpton, which seek to divide Americans on the basis of race, ethnicity, and religion;
      (2) expresses its outrage over the violence that has resulted due to the Reverend Al Sharpton's incendiary words and actions; and
      (3) fervently urges elected officials and public servants, who have condoned and legitimized the Reverend Al Sharpton's incendiary words and actions, to publicly denounce and condemn such racist and anti-Semitic views.
The bill was sent to committee where it died.

I wonder if Morning Joe still feels the same way about "Rev" Al? Sharpton hasn't changed. Bu then again Joe has---he no longer is a congressman from Florida, he is the morning host of the same network that hired Sharpton.

The "Reverend" Al is a regular guest on Joe's show. Why doesn't he (as the bill he introduced says):
expresses [his] outrage over the violence that has resulted due to the Reverend Al Sharpton's incendiary words and actions; and fervently urge elected officials and public servants, who have condoned and legitimized the Reverend Al Sharpton's incendiary words and actions, to publicly denounce and condemn such racist and anti-Semitic views.
Why doesn't he ask the "Preacher" who ignores the commandment against "bearing false witness" if his outrage against George Zimmerman is over the top hypocritical considering Al's racist track record? What the matter Joe....cat's got your tongue? What's wrong Joe--you are never too shy to blast the conservative position (even though you claim to be one).
