WATCH: Professional Race-Hustler Al Sharpton Compares People Who Get News From 'Wrong Source' to Slaves

So we had an outstanding twofer treat on Wednesday morning when MSNBC's "Morning Joe" trotted out race-hustler extraordinaire Al Sharpton to perform his usual racist dog and pony show.

And of course, Trump-loathing co-host Joe Scarborough made the treat even more delicious. 

While discussing Juneteenth, which commemorates the freeing of Texas slaves who didn't learn of the Emancipation Proclamation until two-and-a-half years after Lincoln issued it, Sharpton ignorantly proclaimed that people who get their news from "the wrong source" (Fox News) are tantamount to those slaves.

Scarborough kicked off the festivities.

Good morning, and welcome to Morning Joe. It's a very — it's going to be very hot. Wednesday, June 19th, Juneteenth!

With us, let's bring in the host of Way Too Early, White House bureau chief for Politico, Jonathan Lemire, former director of communications for President Obama, Jen Palmieri, president of the National Action Network and host of MSNBC's Politics Nation, Reverend Al Sharpton, and professor at Princeton University, Eddie Glaude Jr.

Quite the "fair and balanced" panel, huh?

Fired-up Scarborough, loving every minute, first went to "Rev" for his thoughts. 

But Rev, let's talk about today and Juneteenth, and why it's so important.

Sharpton, of course, was all over it like a chicken on a June bug. 

It's very important. Juneteenth is really a celebration, but also a reminder that after Abraham Lincoln had signed the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, those in Texas were not even aware they had been freed until June 19, 1865. For two-and-a-half years, slaves continued to work as slaves in Texas until the Union army came in and made it clear they were free, and enforced it.

Scarborough was probably thinking at the time: "Yeah, Al, we know about the history — just get to the 'making outrageous comparisons with conservatives' part!"

Sharpton didn't disappoint (emphasis, mine). 

The reason I think [Juneteenth] is so important today is that the issues in this election for people like me is around states' rights, where you have states, I was in Florida last night, trying to ban books, trying to stop women's right to choose. 

It's an issue that's still alive, states' rights against the Union, the federal government protecting women, protecting blacks, and protecting history studies and other things ... the ability to communicate. When you get your news from the wrong source, you can be freed and don't even know it.

Translation: "People who don't mindlessly watch CNN, MSNBC, and the lunatic ladies on 'The View,' and intentionally subject themselves to left-wing indoctrination, can never be free, and they don't even know it!"

Clown world, personified.

OK So It's 'Usual Disclaimer' Time

Invariably, when I write about hustlers like Al Sharpton, "The View," MSNBC's Joy Reid, and others, one or more comments in the comment section ask: "Who cares what such-and-such thinks"? Or, "Why are you giving such-and-such an audience?"

The reason is simple, which I learned from Rush Limbaugh.

Rush believed that the more we talk or write about frauds like Sharpton, Reid, Hostin, and others, and the more we let them talk, the more they tell us exactly who they are and what they want. Our purpose, Rush believed, is to expose their poisonous views to as many rational people as we can. Rush was right. 

Al Sharpton, Joy Reid, Sunny Hostin, and the rest of the lot are terribly wrong.
