Here comes race-baiter supreme Al Sharpton right on cue after the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend.
He wasn’t about to let an opportunity like this pass him by. Now he wants the federal government to stop funding the Jefferson Memorial. That won’t happen, but you see where this is going.
Confederate statues were only the beginning. Black activists now want George Washington and Andrew Jackson statues in Chicago removed. So, Sharpton is far from alone in this.
Meanwhile, statues to former clansman Robert Byrd are safe and sound. So is the 16 ft. statue of Lenin in Seattle. This really isn’t about race… it’s about stripping us of our history and dividing us into factions. It makes it much easier for Marxists to control us and change the entire premise of America that way.
Sharpton knows damn well that Jefferson was against slavery. He wanted to free his slaves, but because he had debts, he couldn’t. He also knows the rest of the Founding Fathers felt the same way. But that’s not the point – delegitimizing what our country was founded upon is the goal here.
From Fox News Insider:
New York activist Al Sharpton offered an emotional and personal case calling for the federal government to halt funding to Washington, D.C.’s Jefferson Memorial.
Sharpton said America’s third president and the author of the Declaration of Independence had several slaves.
His iconic round-roofed memorial sits on the edge of Potomac River- the first of several monuments lining Washington’s Ohio Drive.
Sharpton also noted how Jefferson is said to have fathered a child with a slave named Sally Hemings.
“People need to understand that people were enslaved,” Sharpton told PBS‘ Charlie Rose.
He said that his great-grandfather was a slave who was owned by an ancestor of former Sen. J. Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.).
“Our families were victims of this,” he said. “Public monuments [to people like Jefferson]are supported by public funds.”
“You’re asking me to subsidize the insult to my family,” Sharpton said, adding that private museums were preferable to federally-funded monuments to slaveholders.
Sharpton added that President Trump “had laryngitis for two days” on the issue of condemning white supremacist violence in Jefferson’s hometown of Charlottesville.
Al Sharpton just outright lied about President Trump and his response to the violence. And he’s no victim. He didn’t suffer from slavery and Sharpton is not owed a damn thing. He chooses to be personally insulted. Perhaps he doesn’t realize the first slave owner in the US was black, or that many of the slaves were white as well. Whatever. For that matter, maybe Democrats as a whole should be disbanded because they were the ones that founded the KKK.
Sharpton claims to have never been associated with violence. For a guy that is so pure, he sure seems to have been right in the middle of an awful lot of racial unrest and violence. In other words, he’s stone cold liar and an opportunist. I will give him this, because he’s right on this point. Anyone at that rally that saw a KKK or communist flag, should have left immediately if they were a decent person.
Remember, Sharpton played a key role in the 1991 riots in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. You call that non-violent? He claimed he saw “brick-throwing on all sides” during the riots, which he actively helped to instigate. After a black youth was accidentally killed by a car driven by a Jew, Sharpton said these words at a service for the deceased:
“Talk about how Oppenheimer in South Africa sends diamonds straight to Tel Aviv and deals with the diamond merchants right here in Crown Heights. The issue is not anti-Semitism; the issue is apartheid… All we want to say is what Jesus said: If you offend one of these little ones, you got to pay for it. No compromise, no meetings, no coffee klatsch, no skinnin’ and grinnin’.”
A mob responded by murdering a rabbinical student and then rioted for three days.
Then in 1995, Sharpton damned a Jewish owner of a sneaker store in Harlem at a violent rally broadcast on radio. He called the man a “white interloper.” He then railed: “We are asking the ‘buy black’ committee to go down there, and I’m going to go down there and do what is necessary to let them know that we are not turning 125th Street back over to the outsiders that was done in the early part of this century… This is a sin and a shame and a disgrace, and we should not under any circumstances sit by and allow this to happen without a major reaction and major protest from us.” One of those demonstrators started shouting racist and anti-Semitic slurs at the owner. He would later kill seven people and himself in an arson attack on the store.
So, tell me exactly how Al Sharpton has any credibility at all here. He has no standing to demand anything at all, much less defunding the Jefferson Memorial. He can get stuffed. Sharpton can take his racist bigotry and his hatred of America and go and stay gone.
