During a House Judiciary hearing, last September, Al Sharpton denied making racist and bigoted statements, but recordings and articles directly contradict him.
It was a heated confrontation between Rep. Matt Gaetz and MSNBC’s Al Sharpton when Gaetz challenged Sharpton to acknowledge his past inflammatory racist, homophobic and antisemitic comments.
Gaetz brought up a resolution introduced in 2000 by former Florida Rep. Joe Scarborough—now the host of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC—that condemned Sharpton for “racist and anti-Semitic views.”
Gaetz laid into Sharpton with a barrage of questions on whether the quotes from the resolution are true.
Sharpton replied to many of the questions with no recollection of ever saying what he was accused of, while other accusations he attempted to minimize the damage from, by clarifying his intent.
According to the New York Post:
Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) pounded the gavel at many points to restore order but said he can’t object to the “obnoxious” questioning because members of Congress are afforded “wide latitude” on how they use their allotted time.
Gaetz said the comments are “highly relevant.”
“Rev. Sharpton has come before the House Judiciary Committee as a purported expert on policing,” Gaetz said, “and yet his bigoted statements undermine the bipartisan work we should be doing to ensure that all citizens are able to come together and have safe communities.”
Gaetz put together a video showing the evidence of Sharpton making his racist and bigoted comments.
