Skip to comments.Rosenbaum Rep: 'Why Does MSNBC Compensate a Racist Like Sharpton?'
Posted on 04/28/2012 10:13:48 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Isaac Abraham, spokesperson for the family of Yankel Rosenbaum--the Jewish student murdered by a mob during the Crown Heights riot in 1991--contacted Breitbart News today to express his outrage that Al Sharpton would claim not to have incited the violence.
"That's Al Sharpton, distorting the facts. He was there inciting the riots," Abraham says.
Earlier today, Breitbart News posted an exclusive interview with Sharpton after he left a rally for Trayvon Martin in Los Angeles last night. Christian Hartsock asked Sharpton about the riots, and he denied his role:
HARTSOCK: Excuse me, Reverend...Given your role in inciting the Crown Heights riots--
SHARPTON: I wasnt in the Crown Heights riots.
HARTSOCK: You werent involved in the Crown Heights riots?
SHARPTON: No, I came after the Crown Heights riots. Read the state report. We got there three days later and brought the peace. So get your facts right.
Abraham responded: "Al is lying. He was there, he called Jews 'diamond dealers.'....Maybe he doesn't think it was incitement, but he was so close to being charged by District Attorney Charles Hynes with incitement. He wasn't charged--but then he continued his venom and hatred in Israel. He basically keeps distorting the facts."

Getting Sharpton booted off MSNBC would be a nice tribute to Andrew.
They are what they deny being, racist pigs.
That can only happen if we are:
Serious about boycotting any advertiser of Sharpton's show.
Publicize the boycott and publicize any success we have
Reward anybody who pulls their advertisements from Sharpton's show as a result of our pressure.
Most importantly, be brave enough to publicly support such a boycott.
It's time to fight back and this just one of the tactics we need to use.
I am afraid Revrin Al is now entrenched with MSNBC like a tick on a bloodhound. There is no amount of boycott, no amount of complaining, no threats, no nothing will get rid of him. He is like the worst case of crabs on your wedding day.
The only way to get rid of Sharpton is for Sharpton to either do something so horrendous that even the left gets it or if the money dries up.
The only thing we can influence is the money. Sharpton can stay as long as he wants IF the advertisers are still with him. The target of the boycott has to be MSNBC.
Black racists endanger the lives of young blacks. Black racists encourage young blacks to be outlaws. What are civilized blacks doing to stop Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson from leading our black youth to death and imprisonment?
Sharpton lies....he got there the evening of the 21st kid dies @ about 8;30 on the 19th.
