Sharpton was ‘eager to sell coke’ in the ’80s: pal [yet more skeletons in Al's closet]
New York Post ^ | Saturday, April 12, 2014 | Frank Rosario

Posted on 04/12/2014 2:54:31 AM PDT by canuck_conservative

....At the third meeting with Quintana, Sharpton made sure to go alone — wearing a cowboy hat and chomping on an unlit cigar, which was made famous in footage from the FBI surveillance leaked in 2002....

And once he was caught, he had no choice but to wear a wire to save his ample hide from prison.

“Sharpton said they could do whatever they wanted with him after that,” Curington said. “Because they had him. Either he worked for them or they put that news out there that he was into coke.”....

Curington said the activist put on a good show with his bluster and conviction — but inside, Sharpton was terrified of his FBI role, recording murderous mobsters like Joseph “Joe Bana” Buonanno.

“He was absolutely frightened about the job he had to do for the FBI,” Curington said. The feds trained Sharpton immediately, and “he didn’t know how to handle it.”

“He was really tormented. I told him, ‘You should have just listened to your advisers. Because you’re in deep.’ I said, ‘Why are you talking to these types of people?’ He was just greedy. It was all for money.”

Even as he preached against the ravages of crack cocaine on the inner city, Sharpton loved the white powder, Curington said.....

Tried to excerpt some of the juicier parts, but read the whole article.

Just curious - why is all of these stories suddenly coming out now? Is someone trying to take Rev'rund Al out?

There’s some kinda payback going on. Sharpton needs this MSNBC job desperately to pay off debts. It’s the first real paycheck situation he’s ever had, and he’s paying debts left and right.

Who knew this whole angle? That’s the direction to seek the guy on the payback deal.

Kind of suggests what is going on in this picture, where Sharpton is slipping something into Holder’s pocket:

Sharpton was taught by the government to be a crook and now he has used that against Everyone else. He is nothing more than a race baiting slime ball that would sell his own mother to make a buck. He should have been in jail eons ago.

Al, like many in the black community feed off his own people. He's the candy man for them. Loud boisterous, arrogant obnoxious, he controls the media which in turn spotlights the event and the people places and companies involved until an “agreement’ can be reached which is a payout “extorting money” for all involved. Just ask the circus colwn Tawana Brawley how her life is today and where big Al is on this scale. Who made out like a fat rat

These stories are coming mostly through the NY Post, one of the few good papers left in the US. It’s also the oldest, btw.

I think some of the Al Sharpton stuff is aimed at further discrediting the wildly unpopular, dictatorial leftist NYC mayor De Blasio and his entire corrupt circle before they destroy NYC even further.

The only group among which De Blasio enjoys any support at all is blacks, and he relied on the black racial pressure groups very heavily in his campaign. Obviously, Obama, by showing up for a speech at Sharpton’s racist pressure group convention, is publicly throwing in his lot with this faction. He clearly thinks that’s where the power is, and he may be right, because racial intimidation certainly has been effective for radical leftist Democrats.

Don’t forget that Al spends huge amounts of time at the WH and is referred to as one of Obama’s advisors.

Many people in NYC hate Sharpton for all his crimes over the years, which range from whipping up the Tawana Brawley hoax to causing the deaths of several people in the Brooklyn riots and the Freddie’s fire in Harlem, to plain old corruption: yet even though he has even been found guilty of various charges in connection with these things, he has never been punished. He’s so useful to the Dems that he is surrounded by a circle of impunity.

This might break it.

Black America, when your “leaders” are “the hollow men” (Jesse Jackson), the “stuffed men” (Al Sharpton), or those who “wear such deliberate disguises” (Obama, Holder), please do not wonder why you do not garner the full measure of respect you might otherwise have from your fellow citizens. That this sham of a man, indeed, all these men mentioned here, are anything other than in prison or, at the least assigned a place of shame in some corner of America, speaks to the power of the delusion that many blacks have been [once again] enslaved by.

And, of course, their response to the above comment is to be indignant that whites would try to dictate who their leaders should be. (While many here at FR would simply smile and put forth an Allen West, a Ben Carson...)

Content of one’s character folks, content of one’s character...

I am just devistated. I always thought Sharpton recorded the mobsters because he wanted to stop the devestation cocaine did to his people....

I might feel he is now the victim of someone’s outing him; but if I am tempted to feel sympathy, I only have to remember what Sharpton (via Tawana Brawley) did to Pagonis (the accused in that case).

I am trying to conjure up some images of Ted Knight, er BOR, paling around with this scum bag and giving him access to his widely popular Factor show thereby placing a crown of integrity on this POS. I seem to recall a falling out between them. Then again, BOR is infavor of amnesty so what should surprise me about his intelligence.

My first thoughts too. Taking a guess or two, Big Al has not been greasing the right hands or he is threatening to turn evidence over to the Feds.

“I was never told I was an informant with a number,” Sharpton said Tuesday.

“In my own mind, I was not an informant. I was cooperating with an investigation.”

Sharpton has been a “sharpie” and “con artist” since he was a teenager. He was supposedly “ordained” a church minister as a child preacher (which really doesn’t bother me except that he never studied as a recognized seminary (which was also an old Communist Party tactic to have their members pose as clergymen to infiltrate the religious world - Fletcher, Morford, Melish, the recruiter of Angela Davis into the Party orbit, possible KGB asset Rabbi Feinberg of Canada, etc).

One of his first newspaper printed stories concerned his speaker at a CPUSA front rally to raise money for Angela Davis’ “bail fund” (a lot went to the Party which controlled the various “Committees to Defend Angela Davis and other Political Prisoners”. He was 16 at the time and his appearance was written up in the CP’s newspaper of that time, the “Daily World”. Believe he spoke in White Plains, NY.

You can find this information on a political database site www.keywiki.org. “Search by his name or go to the section roughly entitled “Angela Davis Defense Committees” He’s in there under the New York segment.

Sharpton has also been a sponsor of not only CPUSA fronts, but also of the Trotskyite Socialist Workers Party (SWP) and the Stalinist “Workers World Party” (from at least the 1980’s).

He was also tied up with a fruitcake organization of black extremists and white marxists known as the New York Alliance.

Then he founded his own version of it.

Meanwhile he has been using crowd violence and threats of violence to shake-down large and small businesses, as well as to drive out or kill Jews and Korean businessmen in New York City.

And let’s know forget that he gained his most significant news media publicly by him becoming the unappointed mouthpiece for the Tawana Brawley rape hoax, for which he never apologized or gave both a political and financial accounting.

Now you know how he could afford shark-skin coats and very expensive shoes while his followers ate crappy govt surplus cheese.

The media made Sharpton into a national figure, all based on lies, just as they did Ralph Nader (his book “Unsafe at Any Speed”) was debunked by a major auto magazine which tested the Corvair under very strenuous road conditions (”Track and Auto Magazine”?); Mark Lane, the communist nutcase who wrote “Rush to Judgment” about the Kennedy Assassination (which was full of lies and distortions) and his exposed fake Vietnam veterans atrocities stories (”Conversations with Americans” - which was exposed as crap by leftist Vietnam journalist Neil Sheehan); and Rev. Jesse Jackson Jr, who claimed he held the head of a dying Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. the night he was shot to death, though Jackson wasn’t even near him when it happened.

The media created all of these liberal/leftist “frankensteins” because they were too lazy or corrupted to search out the truth.

Al Sharpton, the Charlatan, was just the latest of their creations from piles of lies and propaganda.

Hope the remnants of the Genevesee family or the Gigantes take Al for a “vacation to Jersey” (actually said by John Gotti about a problem person he had in the Gambino/Gotti mob).

Big Al, small enough to stuff into a barrel of cement. The only problem is, even in a cement coffin, shit floats.

Good post. I would go a bit further - the MSM is completely invested in the progressive movement. The left gained power through improbable alliances and racial division is one of it’s main tactics. Sharpton and Jackson are useful power-brokers to shift public opinion. It’s not the followers that give them power - the bombs they throw dominate the public debate via the media and put the other side on the defensive. The left feeds off our programmed cultural guilt and they created it. They promote division even as they “celebrate diversity.”
