Is that a threat, Al Sharpton?

Race-baiter extraordinaire Al Sharpton is at it again.  This time he chose a church in which to threaten America and the Republican convention.

Sharpton was speaking at the Olivet Institutions Church in Cleveland, the city which will hold the 2016 Republican Presidential Convention.  Their pastor, reverend Jawanza Colvin, introduced the civil rights campaigner as “one of God’s trombones”.  Sharpton called for unity because of the blood of that child, and others, shed there during police altercations.

He said he had not come to Cleveland for a “black on black fight” but instead had those “bigger fish to fry”.  I would say that those living in Cleveland should prepare for the worst and hope for the best after this direct threat to the white people living in Cleveland.  Is that a threat, Al Sharpton?

He vowed to have a “summer” offensive in Cleveland, culminating at the convention”.  He said the national problems would crystallize there.  Cleveland would be part of the Presidential debates, said he.  He also promised to hold a competing event outside the convention, said, to “help put the spotlight nationally on Ohio”.   Is that a threat, Al Sharpton?

He encouraged Cleveland blacks to speak up, to show up, and to stand up, saying that the church has always been the impetus for national rules.  One assumes that he is speaking here of the Federal government taking over America’s police forces.

Sharpton declared:  “You will not have an election without Republicans addressing policing,” he told the packed crowd.  Or what, Al?  What are you going to do about it?  Will the peace you have called for be cancelled?  Will Republican candidates accept a National Police Force in the face of your threats?  It was this President who said during the 2008 campaign, “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”   Is that a threat, Al Sharpton?

Is this the crisis which will not be wasted?  As Rahm Emanuel, a close Obama friend once said, “you never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before”.

Although Al is well known for dividing Americans into groups, just as President Barack Obama does, this time he may have gone to far.  He spoke in a church, which has a tax-exempt status. He named the names of several Republican candidates, in order to condemn them.  He said he was not so concerned with the mayor of Cleveland, Frank Jackson – a Democrat – as he was with presumed GOP presidential candidates Jeb Bush and Scott Walker.

From we learn the following: it was Senator Lyndon B. Johnson who purposely silenced the church by adding limitations and eliminating the significant influence the church had always had on shaping “public policy.” 501c3 churches are prohibited from addressing, in any tangible way, the vital issues of the day.

Churches cannot endorse candidates, make donations to campaign, engage in fund raising for candidates, distribute statements, or become involved in other activities which benefit or harm any candidate.   Statements issued from the pulpit would violate these prohibitions, though the law may not differentiate between speech from the pulpit by the minister or a guest speaker.

Now Al is well known for dividing Americans into groups – blacks and whites.  This speech, goes further, by threatening America and an American election – from the pulpit of a church.

Just where is our IRS and Department of Justice in the face of speech which seems to demand that this church no longer be tax-exempt?  Oh, that’s right – they are pursuing the Tea Party Terrorists, FIFA and Denny Hastert.
