Anyone else find this disgraceful and immoral?
Al Sharpton has a sordid history. First of all, though he uses the rubric “Reverend” to give him some degree of respectability, he never attended a seminary. He just made up the title and bestowed it upon himself.
His fraud does not end there.
There was the Tawana Brawley rape hoax that he orchestrated that led to race riots and severe personal damage to a policeman Sharpton tried to frame for the fraudulent rape (see Al Sharpton’s Long Bill of Goods From Tawana Brawley to Primetime). There was the anti-Semitic and anti-white massacre he led against Freddie’s Fashion Mart when a landlord tried to evict a black-owned record store. One of his followers entered the store, pulled out a gun, ordered all black customers to leave and then set the store on fire, killing seven people plus himself. The racist tirades against whites (and gays, for that matter) were legion. See this You Tube compilation by Brietbart

He has a long and disgraceful history of stoking racism against whites.
But wait-there is more.
When a Jewish driver accidentally stuck a black pedestrian in the Crown Heights neighborhood of New York City, Sharpton again inserted himself in the situation and fanned the flames of hatred. He was the ring-leader, railing against Jews who he called “diamond merchants” with “the blood of innocent babies on their hands” and declaring “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.”
An Australian Jewish man was murdered, as was an Italian man, mistaken for being Jewish.
As the New York Post reminded readers a few days ago, Sharpton has been trying to rewrite his history of hatred and Democratic political leaders are going along with the charade. The whitewashing has been going on for years, leading to criticism from some — and has led to his being given his own show on MSNBC
Now President Obama, who invites Sharpton to official White House state dinners (wonder what foreign leaders make of Sharpton) has made him the go-to-guy to deal with the riots going on in Ferguson (cooled down-for now).
Politico’s Glenn Thrush reports in “Revved up: How Al Sharpton became Obama’s go-to man on race”:
“[T]the White House, as the crisis following Brown’s death seemed to flare out of control, worked extensively behind the scenes to maximize The Rev’s doing what he does, using him as both a source of information and a go-between. After huddling with Brown’s family and local community leaders, Sharpton connected directly with White House adviser and First Friend Valerie Jarrett, vacationing in her condo in the exclusive Oak Bluffs section of Martha’s Vineyard, not far from where President Obama and his family were staying. Obama was ‘horrified’ by the images he was seeing on TV, Jarrett told Sharpton, and proceeded to pepper him with questions as she collected information for the president: How bad was the violence? Was it being fueled by outside groups-and could Sharpton do anything to talk them down? What did the Brown family want the White House to do?
“It was a heady consultation for Sharpton, who spent years on the outside dreaming of a place in the pantheon of the civil rights leaders he revered as a teenage street preacher in Brooklyn, and it’s an irony lost on no one that his rise to White House adviser has come thanks to Barack Obama, whose restrained personal style couldn’t be any more different from Sharpton’s. If anything, the Ferguson crisis has underscored Sharpton’s role as the national black leader Obama leans on most, a remarkable personal and political transformation for a man once regarded with suspicion and disdain by many in his own party. It’s a status made all the more surprising given that Obama … ran on a platform of moving beyond the country’s painful racial divisions while Sharpton is the man who once defined those divisions for many Americans.
“What brought them together, according to numerous sources I’ve spoken with about this over the years, is a shared commitment to racial justice, and a hardheaded pragmatism that has fueled their success. ‘He realized I wasn’t as irrational or as crazy as people thought,’ Sharpton told me in an interview this week, and indeed Sharpton not only visits the White House frequently, he often texts or emails with senior Obama officials such as Jarrett and Attorney General Eric Holder, the first African American to hold that job and who, like Sharpton, views the Ferguson crisis as a pivotal one in Obama’s presidency.”
President Obama has completed the political rehabilitation of an anti-white, anti-Semitic race hustler whose incendiary rhetoric led to actual arson and murders.
Another disgraceful — there have been so many — action by Barack Obama.
Reverend Al Sharpton, host of PoliticsNation on MSNBC and former presidential candidate, will be the keynote speaker at the annual fundraiser for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S.Muslim Brotherhood entity with an extremist history.
CAIR’s 20th Annual Banquet will be held on September 27 in Arlington, Virginia and also features Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN).
According to the U.S. Justice Department, CAIR is an entity of the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood. More specifically, CAIR is part of the Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, a secret body that was established to push the agenda of Hamas and the overall Islamist cause.
