“I was not and am not a rat,” says rat Al Sharpton

Font Size:

The sun sets. The sun rises. The Rev. Al Sharpton says things that aren’t true. On this we can rely.

Jill Colvin, NY Observer:

A defiant Rev. Al Sharpton today responded to media reports that he served as an FBI informant against mob bosses in the 1980s, confirming that he recorded conversations, but insisting the reports missed the mark…

“Rats are usually people that were with other rats. I was not and am not a rat, because I wasn’t with the rats. I’m a cat,” said Mr. Sharpton. “I chase rats…”

“I think it was very interesting that many of us are condemned for not fighting crime and now we’re condemned for fighting crime,” he said.

Yep. If you’ll allow me to quote myself, which you will because this is my blog, I called this one yesterday:

So basically, Al Sharpton was practically an undercover cop, right? He was one of the good guys and he was just trying to do the right thing for his community. I’m guessing that’s the story I’m supposed to believe, so why not.

He was just doing it out of the goodness of his heart. He didn’t get caught selling drugs, and then avoided prosecution by becoming a rat. He was a damn supercop. He should get a medal! Etc.

It makes me wonder what sort of dirt he has on Obama. You’d better stay in line, Barry, if you don’t want Al to flip on you like he flipped on his other criminal buddies. You just do as you’re told. That’s a good president.
