AL SHARPTON'S CHICAGO TOWN HALL ERUPTS INTO REVOLT AGAINST MACHINE POLITICS
Breitbart ^ | 21 Dec 2013 | by REBEL PUNDIT

Posted on 12/22/2013 8:11:39 AM PST by US Navy Vet

On Thursday, a town hall meeting hosted by Al Sharpton and the National Action Network to address gun violence exploded into a revolt against “Chicago Machine” politics, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and the aldermen in City Hall, with panel and audience members calling to vote out their elected officials. One 82-year-old preacher even called for “Tea Party” style meetings in some of Chicago’s south side communities such as Altgeld Gardens and Trumbull Park.

“McKinley told the room, “Stop blaming just anybody for the violence in the city of Chicago. Blame the right people, not just white people, but the right people. Because it’s not just white folks a part of this,...”

Sounds like the black folks are waking up.

There are going to be a LOT of scared DEM RATS if this is true and not a isolated incident.

There are two ballot initiatives getting traction in Chicago. I know I work with one. One us a term limit and the other is anti-gerrymandering. Put those into law....

I watched the video. I am withholding judgement for now. Frankly, until I hear something more concrete, I’m not sure they’re not just pizzed that The Won didn’t pay their rents and put gas in the car for “free”, because that’s been the line for decades, “free stuff for votes”. I’d be pleased to be wrong.

Also, I’d like to hear how violence in the hood isn’t “just” white folks’ fault. Those guns aren’t mind-control devices, how do whites figure into black gangs shooting up the hood? Economics? Then why aren’t trailer parks in Appalachia war zones like that?

Sounds like an outreach program, we go in mass, bring copies of Hayek, Goldberg's Liberal Fascism, the Constitution, show them our local tea party structure(s), it isn't that hard...

The question begs, when does Sharpton and Jackson buy a place in the Dominican Republic next to Rangel's and retire, they may need to vamanos soon, me thinks the Fat Lady is about to sing....

I agree. I think they searched out a Tea Party Rep and found out for themselves that we make sense.

I’d be pleased to be wrong.

I think they are tired of being sick and tired, and Da Whon has taken the mask off of the scam of redistribution and programs that get nothing to them and people running them are skimming all the cream off the top. The mask is off because deep down they know the economy didn't get massively better. I talked to an HR - head hunter type last night, I-his-HO it is a regional recovery and the fracking area's are booming and carrying the economy....

This is very dangerous

They would fall for Communist structure at this point thinking “something was getting done”

Good for them. It’s a start, and obviously, they are finally getting frustrated with how and who they vote.

That is encouraging.

Do you think they are awakening to the fact that the Rats are not really there to help them?

After they lost their respective wars the Nazis and the Confederates were banned from politics and their members were prohibited from serving in office. Considering how much damage they've done to this country, damage far more deep and long lasting than we've ever sustained in any war, we should ban the Republican and Democrat parties and forbid their elected member from participating in politics again.

Yeah... I guess I'm real glad that charlatans like Sharpton don't want to just blame white people for their inherent violence among one another...LOL

Of course, we all know that white-on-black violence occurs mostly in the minds of these "black leaders" who make their living milking racial division.

Tell ya what, Rev'rund Al, I'll promise to stop going down into the ghetto and attacking innocent black people if you'll agree to keep your Mau Maus out of my neighborhood.

A crack in the ice. Especially with the young. They know 30 million Mexicans will kill employment. They also know they’re getting cut out of the system. Concessions at O’Hare or a coffee shop on Navy Pier is an insider game. With the right messages the Republican party can pick up some if the young black vote.

I know a young black man, who lives in Chicago (David Williams, a congressional candidate in the 9th District), and he supports immigration reform. He says that Congress should try to discourage illegal aliens and deport a lot more illegal aliens. Too many people think that “immigration reform” means “reform that helps the law-breakers.”

Not to worry as soon as the plantation owners offer up something to the extortionist it will go away and they will be friends again
