• This Charles Barkley Rant On Ferguson Will Probably Piss Off Your Liberal Friends

    NBA Hall of Famer and sports analyst Charles Barkley blasted the looters who’ve wreaked havoc on Ferguson, Missouri following a grand jury decision not to charge Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting Michael Brown.

    Barkley told Philadelphia radio 97.5’s The Fanatic host Mike Missanelli that the Ferguson rioters are “scumbags.”

    “There is no excuse for people to be out there burning down people’s businesses, burning down police cars.”

    Barkley also blamed the media for stirring up racial unrest in the wake of the August 9th shooting.

    “I can’t believe anything I hear on television anymore, and that’s why I don’t like talking about race issues with the media anymore because they love this stuff and lead people to jump to conclusions,” Barkley said. “The media shouldn’t do that. They never do that when black people kill each other.”

    “We have to be really careful with the cops because if it wasn’t for the cops we would be living in the wild, wild west in our neighborhoods,” Barkley continued. “We can’t pick out certain incidentals that don’t go our way and act like the cops are all bad. Do you know how bad some of these neighborhoods would be if it wasn’t for the cops?”

    Barkley confessed to not reading the grand jury verdict, and said that he was upset that it took so long to hear the media report that “3 or 4 black eyewitnesses corroborated Darren Wilson’s story.”

    Today, liberal hack Bob Beckel said on Fox that Barkley “has not seen a poor neighborhood in 20 years, number one. He’s running as a Republican for the Senate. He’s putting his nose in this and he doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

    And it’s absolutely believable that Bob Beckel takes his daily 5-mile run in black neighborhoods in the den of night?

    I don’t think so.

    The entire interview above is well worth a listen.
