  • Race Agitator Al Sharpton To MSNBC: “I suspect” LA cop shooter was “planted” to make BLM look bad [VIDEO]

    “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough began his segment this morning, by asking Al Sharpton what his message to the “25 million peaceful protesters” about the remarks by “those people, who were chanting “they hope that they died?” Al Sharpton, the guy who openly called for killing cops in 1992, told Scarborough that the message of the BLM agitators is, “We are not anti-police, and we are certainly not for killing or shooting police.” He quickly switched gears, making himself and BLM the victims, saying, “We are there saying police should not be wrongfully shooting or killing civilians, particularly in the...

    (CU) - The Reverend Al Sharpton is the man FBI agents referred to as “CI-7”, short for confidential informant #7, in secret court filings. In those documents, investigators confidently vouched for him as being a reliable, productive, and accurate source of private information regarding investigations into illegal activities. Today Sharpton continues to straddle the corporate and street cultures while maintaining the unofficial position of America’s senior spokesman for civil rights issues. Our collective memories don’t appear to be as strong as needed or the left side of the political aisle simply assumes short memories have washed clean Sharpton’s reputation.
  • No Social Distancing Please, We're Rioting: 100,000 Sharpton Rally Planned for D.C.

    There are two Americas and two sets of rules. If you're an American, you have to #CowerSafelyAtHome and #WearaMask. But if you're a leftist going to Black Lives Matter riots, no rules apply. If you're an American and travel to D.C., you must self-quarantine. But if you're attending a Black Lives Matter rally, you're good. Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bower has unveiled a list of 27 states deemed “high-risk areas” -- meaning those traveling from them must self-quarantine for 14 days if arriving in the nation's capital. As part of the District's effort to contain the coronavirus pandemic, the quarantine...

    You want "divisive?" MSNBC is divisive. The vile Al Sharpton described President Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore as a “love letter to white supremacy.” In Saturday night’s PoliticsNation, Sharpton smeared our Founding Fathers, as white supremacists, rather than courageous heroes that founded this great nation. Sharpton even insinuated that Trump wants to take America back to the days of slavery: Yes, you're attempting to take America back indeed, but much further than the 1950s, as has often been assumed. No, after last night's love letter to white supremacy, I'm now convinced that what you're actually reaching for is indeed 1776,...

    President Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden both set eye-popping fundraising records last month – but Biden’s records were larger. The former vice president’s campaign announced on Wednesday night that they, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and their joint fundraising committees hauled in a combined $141 million in June, which was by far the campaign’s best monthly figure to date. Biden’s campaign called it a “jaw-dropping sum of money”

    Jewish News Syindicate ^ | July 2, 2020 | Jackson Richman
    Anti-Defamation League national director and CEO Jonathan Greenblatt has come under fire from Jewish groups for appearing on the MSNBC show “Politics Nation With Al Sharpton” on Sunday to promote the ADL’s call for corporations to boycott Facebook in July over its unwillingness to ban hate speech on the social-media giant’s platform. While the message seems on target with ADL’s work, the idea of partnering with someone like Sharpton, who has a history of anti-Semitism and other bigotry, is hypocritical, if not counterproductive, they say. Rabbi Abraham Cooper, the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s associate dean and director of global social action,...

    You don't want 600 people to come here and destroy your business and burn it down".. The riot in Madison was inspired by the arrest of organizer Devonere Johnson for 'organizing' in a restaurant. The resulting violence saw statues toppled and a Democrat state senator beaten. Now the Feds have busted Johnson for blackmailing businesses. ... U.S. Attorney Scott Blader filed the charges against Devonere Johnson, alleging he threatened to bash windows of downtown businesses unless employees gave him money. Blader also alleges Johnson, 28, threatened to "shut down and destroy" another business unless Johnson and his friends were provided...

    “The FBI identified it as a noose. NASCAR [initially] said it was a noose or went along with the FBI’s characterization. It was a noose. So, the question is, even if they did not know that Bubba Wallace was going to use that stall, why was a noose in the stall?" Sharpton said Wednesday on MSNBC. "So I don’t think this answers a lot of questions. And clearly, from what we just saw of Bubba Wallace, it does not seem he, who is the victim and possible target in this matter, seems to be satisfied with this. So I do...

    Reverend Al Sharpton has delivered a fiery condemnation of Donald Trump in Tulsa on the eve of his rally in the city, telling protesters that they were the ones whose demonstrations would make America great. The 65-year-old civil rights activist said he had received death threats for being in Oklahoma, but told the crowd they were the ones who would change America for the better. Donald Trump will hold his own rally in the city on Saturday - his first campaign gathering since the coronavirus pandemic broke out.

    Discussion on CNN and MSNBC of "Juneteenth," the June 19 commemoration of the effective end of slavery in the United States, has exploded nearly 1,200 percent in 2020 compared with previous years. . . . On June 17, 2018, MSNBC weekend host Alex Witt became the first white cable anchor to mention the holiday during the period examined by the Free Beacon. She admitted to Sharpton, who had discussed Juneteenth during a monologue on PoliticsNation, that she had never heard of it. "I loved learning about the meaning of June, uh, what's it, 19th? Juneteenth! That is extraordinary," she said...

    On April 8, 1865, the 13th Amendment banning slavery passed by U.S. Senate Republican support 100% Democrat support 37% On June 19, 1865, what was later called “Juneteenth,” U.S. troops landed in Galveston, Texas to enforce ban on slavery that had been declared more than two years before by the Emancipation Proclamation. On Friday Al Sharpton will hold a Juneteenth rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma one day before President Trump’s rally in the same city. For some reason the liberal media has not condemned Sharpton’s rally plans. Funny how it works that way.

    Sharpton has a long record of using racist and antisemitic rhetoric. Many Jews blamed him for exacerbating mob violence against the Jewish community in New York in the 1990s. More recently, Sharpton led protests against the 2012 death of black teenager Travyon Martin, which he and fellow activists cast as racially motivated, marking the beginning of a decline in race relations that has lasted several years. Hardly anyone blinks an eye at the Rev. Al Sharpton’s racist statements, such as: “White folks was in the caves while we (blacks) was building empires. … We built pyramids before Donald Trump ever...

    WND ^ | May 10, 2015 | Joseph Farah
    For close to 20 years now, I’ve been observing and reporting on a disturbing trend in law enforcement – the federalization and militarization of local police forces. Until recently, practically no one noticed what was happening. But with the focus on police shootings and the civil disturbances that have followed – sometimes involving tanks, military-style gear and Kevlar – it’s hard not to notice that local cops don’t exactly look like Officer Joe Bolton anymore. It was none other than Al Sharpton (I won’t call him reverend) who suggested recently that the answer to the use of excessive force by...

    Given the current unrest surrounding the death of George Floyd, it’s not surprising to learn that yet another rally is being planned in D.C. But this one is being announced well in advance, scheduled to take place on August 28th, the anniversary of the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech given 57 years ago. Unfortunately for those interested in participating, the host of this rally is perpetual opportunist Al Sharpton. Any time there is any sort of unrest involving issues of race, you can always expect Al Sharpton to show up and find a way...

    Civil rights activist Al Sharpton attacked President Donald Trump and vowed not to let those with agendas use George Floyd as prop during his powerful eulogy for the man who was anonymous in life but sparked global protests for justice in death. Hollywood celebrities, musicians and the politically powerful filed into a sanctuary in front of the golden casket of Floyd for a memorial service on Thursday as mourners began a three-city farewell. The service unfolded at the Lindquist Sanctuary at the North Central University as a judge less than a mile away set bail at $750,000 each for three...

    George Floyd should have been alive today. George Floyd would have been alive today if his humanity was recognized, valued and respected. George Floyd should have been protected by those who swore an oath to uphold the law and help the communities they serve. George Floyd is no longer with us because even in the middle of a global pandemic, police brutality has not ceased. COVID-19 is ravaging us, making it difficult to breathe, and yet systemic racism has been tightening its grip on our throats for years. Racism is trauma, passed from generation to generation. Enough is enough. Just...

    The legitimate grievance against the Minneapolis police who seem to have caused the death of subdued suspect George Floyd was undermined when opportunistic thieves and troublemakers used a protest demonstration as cover for robbery and arson. Businesses near the 3rd Precinct headquarters were vandalized, merchandise stolen, cash registers smashed open with hammers, and buildings set on fire. This display of lawless behavior was met by diverse responses. Mayor Jacob Frey (D) was distressed that "those trying to liberate assets from their capitalist oppressors are not socially distancing as required by the Governors' emergency order. I want everyone to be safe....
