Sharpton breaks promise to Trayvon supporters, fails to show up in Sanford for Easter Occupation
By Matthew Boyle - The Daily Caller 4 hrs ago
MSNBC host and the Rev. Al Sharpton has broken a major promise he made to those supporting him and Trayvon Martins family: he didnt show up in Sanford, Fla., to occupy the town over Easter weekend.
On March 26, Sharpton had vowed to occupy Sanford over Easter weekend to show support for Trayvon, the 17-year-old black teen who was shot by Hispanic man George Zimmerman on Feb. 26.
Were going to have a full blown occupation of Sanford with tents and everything over Easter weekend until [authorities] either arrest George Zimmerman, or arrest us for praying for his arrest, Sharpton told ABC News about two weeks before Easter.
Now though, on Easter weekend, Sharpton is nowhere to be found in the central Florida town. Instead, according to his Twitter feed, hes in Harlem.

Tawana recalled him.
Sharpton is smart enough to know the 15 min of fame he is getting out of this case has just about run out. Sharpton and Jackson only care about ONE thing, and that is the bling bling..no money, no showing up, that simple
LOL, oh, come now, it’s Easter Sunday....I’m sure the Reverend was holding services at his church! /s
Planning a trip to Tulsa?
“Im sure the Reverend was holding services at his church! /s”
The reason might have something to do with how the facts of this case havent exactly been the way Sharpton and his allies originally presented them.
Since Sharpton first promised hed occupy Sanford over Easter weekend, several pieces of his storyline have fallen apart.
Even my liberal relatives are laughing at the Just Us Brothers when I spoke up about the absence of black jelly beans today.
He’s moonwalking. Has heard that a list is being named for upcoming lawsuits and knows his name is at the top.
no cameras, no al.
Comcast is telling Sharpton to pipe down.
They misunderstood him, that’s all. There’s a lot of that going around. What he really said:
Yo we’sre going ta gots uh full blown occupation o’ Sanford wif tents an’ everything ova Easter weekend until [authorities] either arrest George Zimmerman,
or arrest us fo’ praying fo’ his arrest, Don’ make me come ova there bitch...
Sharpton told ABC News ‘bout two weeks b’foe Easter
(coward racist maggot) .. didnt show up in Sanford, Fla., to occupy the town over Easter weekend.
maybe, just maybe, our emails and tweets to MSNBC to fire their violence-promoting ‘correspondent’ made some difference ?
Treyvon is “dead”
Nothing stopping Jesse Jackson from showing up again. Maybe Rev Al got a call from Obama that the polling was beginning to stink on this whole Treyvon thing and the ginned up racial outrage
Why in God’s name would ANYONE follow Sharpton. But then, we can say the same for Reverend Wright. It’s all about “hating whitey”....
He probably couldn’t get a fill in pastor for the Easter services at his church on such short notice.
Maybe he’s trying to sell some Skillets!
