Al Sharpton has made his career on being a race bating loud mouth.
He started out in life with the Tawana Brawley rape hoax that turned him in to a hero among progressives who don’t care about the truth. With that lie as a foundation Sharpton built his reputation as someone who was always available to start a riot. Al will show up – with his hand out – at any opportunity to push his race hustle.
These days the Rev. Al has problems. Nobody’s paying any attention to him anymore. He’s been upstaged by #BlackLivesMatter and a whole new generation of race baiters and rioters. That’s a real problem for him because Sharpton owes the IRS and New York State something on the order of $4 million in back taxes. If he can’t draw a crowd, the cash flow stops. And if the cash flow stops he’s going to be dependent on getting a presidential pardon from his buddy Barack Obama on his tax bill.
But you gotta give them credit, he’s like the Energizer Bunny, he keeps on trying. The Rev. Al’s latest race also is focused on the Democrats biggest demon – the National Rifle Association. The NRA is the organization that Progressives love to demonize, and Rev. Al is making the most of it.
His new talking point is that the NRA is an “whites only” organization and they don’t care about the right to bear arms for black people.
He got all wound up on the subject last Saturday at a rally in Harlem where he called out the NRA and Wayne LaPierre for their reaction to the police shooting deaths of two black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.
“Both of them were killed by police based on Asterix they had a gun.*Now I missed the NRA coming out and defending the gun rights that they legally had. Where is the NRA? Where is [NRA president] Wayne LaPierre now? Do you have a second amendment right or did you not get down, Esther Pierre, to the 14th, 15th and 16th amendments? Maybe you mean the Second Amendment is for whites only.”
Really Al? Whites only?
Here’s David Webb, who you’ll note happens to be black, on “Fox and Friends” talking about the NRA and Al Sharpton.
Webb really smacked the nail on the head about Sharpton. The Rev. Al has become irrelevant and is desperate.
Webb also pointed out that with respect to Alton Sterling, Sharpton is – as usual – dead wrong. Sterling was a convicted felon – a pedophile – and as a convicted felon he had no right to be carrying a gun.
The one thing all race baiters have in common is that they jump to their preferred conclusions before all the facts are in. Once the facts are in and they are shown to be lying they just keep up the lie – Treyvon Martin and Michael Brown were just good boys murdered by vicious white guys. Of course, the national media won’t call them on it because the national media is nothing more than Democratic operatives with bylines.
I liked it when David Webb showed off his NRA membership card and noted that there was no check box on the membership application for race.
I’m sure Sharpton will be at the Democratic national convention in Philadelphia, assuming he can find someone to pay his expenses, and I’m sure he’ll bring along several dead horses to beat.
It’s going to be a long hot summer, especially for those poor dead horses.
