Joe Madison Joined Al Sharpton To Slam Sarah Palin For Debt And Slavery Comparison
Sarah Palin compared America’s debt to slavery during a fundraiser event held by the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition. Palin said in a speech, “Our free stuff today has been paid for by taking money from our children and borrowing from China. When that note comes due, and this isn’t racist, but it is going to be like slavery when that note is due. We’re going to be beholden to a foreign master because there is no plan coming out of Washington D.C. to stop the incurrence of debt.”
Joining Al Sharpton, radio host Joe Madison weighs in on the comparison that Sarah Palin made on America’s debt to slavery. Madison said it was a stupid thing to do. He suggested that Palin go back to school, watch the movie 12 Years a Slave, and recognized that slavery is not just about debt.
Madison pointed out the hypocrisy, recalling that the right-wing used to complain when slavery is brought up but now it has become their rhetoric. He said the only reason why the right-wing is doing this now is to associate Obama as an African-American and slavery.
“I would tell Sarah Palin shut up, go to the movie, see 12 Years a Slave, and read a couple of books,” said Madison.
