Posted on 05/24/2014 7:39:45 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Al Sharptons history of hate is so voluminous and well documented, where does one even begin?
The time he disparaged Jews as diamond merchants during the unrest of the infamous Crown Heights riots?
Or when Sharpton tried goading NYCs Jewish community into an all-out fistfight, saying If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house?
How about referring to the Jewish owner of Freddys Fashion Mart, Fred Harari, as a white interloper for seeking to expand his business in Harlem? (You may have heard of Freddys. It was also known as the Harlem Massacre. One of Sharptons followers also disapproved of the white interloper and burned the store to the ground, murdering eight people including himself.)
But those tirades were just Sharptons anti-semitic ones. Hes also sermonized on Greek homos and crackas as well as bombarded former NYC Mayor David Dinkins with a barrage of N-bombs.
So if youre Sharpton and youre confronted about some of your greatest hits, what do you do?
Scoff at the questioning and argue that one of your notorious racial slurs wasnt, in fact, a slur because it was meant for just one Jewish individual.
No, seriously, that was Sharptons defense.
On the night of the glitzy Washington Correspondents Dinner, Daily Surge Publisher Jason Mattera asked the faux Civil Rights leader if he should be banned from television, in the spirit of Donald Sterling, for all the racist stuff hes said over the years. Sharpton, recall, threatened boycotts and protests if the National Basketball Association failed to ban Sterling from the league.
If you can believe it, Sharpton challenged Mattera to produce evidence of racism.
And when that evidence was produced, easily (see above) in this case, him calling Fred Harari a white interloper and David Dinkins a n***** Sharpton ignored the shot at Dinkins, but ridiculously claimed that whiter interloper didnt rise to the level of racism because it was directed at only one Jew, not a neighborhood of them.
When did I call Jews white interlopers? Sharpton demanded.
Mattera reminded Sharpton of Freddys Fashion Mart and followed-up with, Doesnt it take some serious balls on your end to accuse somebody of racism?
Sharpton blustered back, You went from one guy who paid people off the books and was wrong, before the Reverend rambled on about lies and distortions as though hes been misinterpreted all these years.
Of course, splitting hairs over anti-semitic comments is probably not the best position to find oneself in.
In any event, who knows how many Jews Al Sharpton had in mind. When an audiotape surfaced of him disparaging Mr. Harari, his initial reaction was, Whats wrong with denouncing white interlopers? Sharpton eventually gave one of those half-hearted apologies (a bloodbath ensued at Freddys, after all) and then carried on with his profession of stoking racial strife.
As idiotic as Donald Sterlings comments were, they were still said in private. Sharptons tirades, on the other hand, were delivered for public consumption. And not only has Sharpton been rewarded with his own primetime television show on MSNBC, hes a frequent guest at the White House and Obama officials headline his National Action Network conference.
Recently, the Los Angeles chapter of the NAACP honored Sharpton with their Person of the Year award, an accolade that was originally slated to be given to wait for it Donald Sterling.
“You’re a punk faggot” Rev. Big Al Sharpton.
Why did this piece of Jew-hating $h!t get invited to the democrat convention and get his TV show and get called “civil rights leader”?
Wow, the check from the dumb-o-crat party must have deposited into his account.
Yes AL does have a very VERY “colorful” past .....
