In the opening segment of MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation,” host and notorious tax-evader Al Sharpton compared the newly-enacted Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act to Jim Crow and slavery.

“This is a key moment for the country,” he said. “Too often in our history, we’ve seen religion used to justify attacks on other people’s rights, from slavery, to Jim Crow, to women’s right to vote.” (VIDEO: Obama: ‘People Committed Terrible Deeds In The Name of Christ’)

“That same fight is with us today,” Sharpton concluded, “And we can’t let it stand.”
