Al Sharpton vs. Sheriff Joe: The Hypocrite vs. The Patriot
American Thinker ^ | April 8, 2009 | Sammy Benoit

Posted on 04/08/2009 12:46:15 PM PDT by jazusamo

The Reverend Al Sharpton must be running out of things to protest.  Yesterday he went after Sheriff Joe Arpaio. According to a report by Reuters, the opportunist Sharpton, called on Sheriff Joe to resign accusing him of racially profiling Hispanics because of his attempts to enforce US immigration laws:

Under a deal allowing them to enforce federal immigration laws, the deputies have arrested more than 1,500 people who they determined were in Arizona illegally, triggering street protests and condemnation from Latino activists who accuse him of racial profiling." I am first calling for the resignation and or removal of Sheriff Arpaio ... harassment based on color is nothing short of racial profiling, which many of us ... helped to fight to make against the law," Sharpton told reporters.

"Arpaio needs to be confronted, he needs to be removed. ... We also need to suspend the law that he is using. We must stand with our brown brothers and sisters," Sharpton said.

It's ironic that Sharpton is fighting Arpaio's efforts to rid his county of people who are there illegally especially when you consider that Sharpton once incited a deadly riot to rid Harlem of a Jewish store owner who had the nerve to operate at the same location for over 40 years."

The store was called Freddie's Fashion Mart. Sharpton decided that Harlem should be segregated and decided that the Jewish owned store should close even though it had been there for decades. Jeff Jacoby
wrote this account:

When the United House of Prayer, a large black landlord in Harlem, raises the rent on Freddy's Fashion Mart, Freddy's white Jewish owner is forced to raise the rent on his subtenant, a black-owned music store. A landlord-tenant dispute ensues; Sharpton uses it to incite racial hatred. "We will not stand by," he warns malignantly, "and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business." Sharpton's National Action Network sets up picket lines; customers going into Freddy's are spat on and cursed as "traitors" and "Uncle Toms." Some protesters shout, "Burn down the Jew store!" and simulate striking a match. "We're going to see that this cracker suffers," says Sharpton's colleague Morris Powell. On Dec. 8, one of the protesters bursts into Freddy's, shoots four employees point-blank, and then sets the store on fire. Seven employees die in the inferno.

Those seven lives are just a few of the deaths caused by the Reverend Al and his hypocrisy; he also helped incite a pogrom in Crown Heights, Brooklyn that resulted in the death of Yankel Rosenbaum. You won't read anything about it in the MSM when they talk about Sharpton's latest hypocrisy; they are too intimidated by this press hungry hypocrite.

Paint Arpaio’s face with circus clown colors, then give him a big Hee Haw saaaaaa-lute.

To his credit he’s one of the very few sheriffs who have taken this illegals invasion thing seriously, enough to buck City Hall.

He’s also cost his city beaucoup in legal settlements for things that were, well, a little bit shady.

He and Sharpton... they almost deserve each other. But I’d keep Arpaio sooner than Sharpton.

Sharpton bit off a lot more than he can chew when he made the mistake of acting out his racist bigot shtick with Sheriff Joe.

“When the United House of Prayer, a large black landlord in Harlem”

The “United House of Prayer” is a so-called church that places honor to its founder “Daddy Grace” above that of Jesus Christ. I’ve seen the sanctuary at the church building in Newport News, VA. Very bizarre and somewhat cult-like.

I believe you’re right, Arpaio will eat Sharpton for lunch and won’t back away.

Not enough radical blacks in Joe’s territory for Sharpton to follow through on his bluff.

Also blacks and hispanics tend to despise each other (as they are fighting for their piece of the affirmative action pie).

That sounds like something Sharpton would do the bidding for.

Yes, I’ve read articles here on both sides of Arpaio. I don’t personally know but the bad guys sure hate him. :)

I believe that you should rent the Dome in Glendale so people can come and see you try to paint Sheriff Joe as a clown!

Remember the first time you tried it? Remember the last time you tried it? No problem, first and last are the same time.

Sheriff Joe is one of the finest! Just as one of his Lt’s and a couple of Deputies told that POS Mayor -—
“SHUT UP!”

We are up to our butts in Ilegals and you want Sheriff Joe as a Clown -—— I bet you voted for President Zero.

Just ran “al sharpton” through the anagram server. Hilarious!
My favorites:
Staph Ran Lo-— his Chinese name
No lap trash-—self explanatory
La harp snot-—you’d have to be a French harmonica player to know!

He already is one, minus the paint.

Very few neutrals are applicable to that character.

But he is a clown with guns and rootin and tootin at those Mejicans who just think they can waltz right over the border, no questions asked.

I must concede... Send in the clowns. We need more clowns.

Most sheriffs are political animals.

Hooray for Sheriff Joe for wanting to get things done rather than listening to his detractors and Al Sharpton.

You should be a might more careful who you're calling a clown.

On one side you have a man, reelected twenty rears on, upholding the laws as they're written while finding innovative ways to keep costs down - without violating human rights. This man went to Washington to defend his policies when the gutless politicians trying to string him up before public opinion lacked the courage to invite him to the proceedings.

The other man, most notable for the "fake rape" Tawanna Brawley non-case, is a known anti-Semitic race-baiter, opportunist and scalawag of the worst sort who pretends to be a man of God trying to take advantage of Americans Who Happen To Be Black like his predecessor and con-man rival, Jesse Jackson.

Now YOU tell me which man deserves respect and which one needs the old fashioned tar and feathering treatment.

Like I said, I freely cede that it’s hard to talk neutrally about the guy.

Suffice it to say there is lively debate about how well he always achieved the “without violating human rights” part. The city settled cases rather than litigate to the bitter end. Most of this was in association with practices in his tent prisons, not in chasing down illegals, and most of these problems are gone now.

Others like you are incensed at the way terriers yapped at his heels for things which truly meant nothing at all and ended up with clear legal wins for the big ego Cl — oops, the Sheriff.

He’s a love or hate kind of guy. I do not have the resources to dig through all the paperwork myself to see what’s what. I wish you well and no ill with the Cl — oops, the Sheriff.
