Glenn: We don't need Al Sharpton & the fascist parade to drum people out of business
The overwhelming reaction to the racist audio that allegedly features of Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling is that the man has no business in the NBA.

Al Sharpton has joined the crowd calling for Sterling's head – threatening to organize a boycott.

Another example of a horrible thing government has done for the 'common good' Did the United States government really inject men with Syphilis and leave them to die? Did it do this because it hated black people? The answer to both those questions is: No. But Stu's latest 'Antisocial Monologue' offers a fascinating look into the Tuskegee Experiment, which is just one example of how the government is all too capable of doing horrible things in the name of the 'common good.'
