Believe me when I tell you that I wish I didn’t have to keep covering this story but it is a story which has unfolded in the South (Sanford , Fla) and could have very big implications in the lives of Southerners.
It could have very big implications because of what Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder addressed the National Action Network yesterday in Washington, D.C. and praised, yes you heard right, praised “Reverend” Al Sharpton stating:
“Thank you very much, Reverend Al. I appreciate your kind words, and I’m especially grateful for your prayers and for your partnership, your friendship, and also for your tireless efforts to speak out for the voiceless, to stand up for the powerless, and to shine a light on the problems we must solve and the promises, the promises that we must fill.”
Wow. So Al Sharpton is a problem solver and a shiner of light now?
Let’s look at Mr. Sharptons past “problem solving” skills. From Wikipedia:
“The Crown Heights riot began on August 19, 1991, after a car driven by a Jewish man, and part of a procession led by an unmarked police car, went through an intersection and was struck by another vehicle causing it to veer onto the sidewalk where it accidentally struck and killed a seven-year-old Guyanese boy named Gavin Cato and severely injured his cousin Angela. Witnesses could not agree upon the speed and could not agree whether the light was yellow or red. One of the factors that sparked the riot was the arrival of a private ambulance which, on the orders of a police officer worried for the Jewish driver’s safety, removed the uninjured driver from the scene while Cato lay pinned under his car. Cato and his cousin were treated soon after by a city ambulance. Caribbean-American and African-American residents of the neighborhood rioted for four consecutive days fueled by rumors that the private ambulance had refused to treat Cato. During the riot blacks looted stores, beat Jews in the street, and clashed with groups of Jews, hurling rocks and bottles at one another after Yankel Rosenbaum, a visiting student from Australia, was stabbed and killed by a member of a mob shouting “Kill the Jew.” Sharpton marched through Crown Heights and in front of “770”, shortly after the riot, with about 400 protesters (who chanted “Whose streets? Our streets!” and “No justice, no peace!”), in spite of Mayor David Dinkins‘s attempts to keep the from happening.
In 1995, a black Pentecostal Church, the United House of Prayer, which owned a retail property on 125th Street, asked Fred Harari, a Jewish tenant who operated Freddie’s Fashion Mart, to evict his longtime subtenant, a black-owned record store called The Record Shack. Sharpton led a protest in Harlem against the planned eviction of The Record Shack. Sharpton told the protesters, “We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.”
On December 8, 1995, Roland J. Smith Jr., one of the protesters, entered Harari’s store with a gun and flammable liquid, shot several customers and set the store on fire. The gunman fatally shot himself, and seven store employees died of smoke inhalation. Fire Department officials discovered that the store’s sprinkler had been shut down, in violation of the local fire code. Sharpton claimed that the perpetrator was an open critic of himself and his nonviolent tactics. Sharpton later expressed regret for making the racial remark, “white interloper,” and denied responsibility for inflaming or provoking the violence.
On March 11, 2007, Sharpton held a press conference to highlight what he said was unequal treatment of four suspected rapists in a high-profile crime in the Dunbar Village Housing Projects in West Palm Beach, Florida. The suspects, who were young black men, were arrested for allegedly raping and beating a black Haitian woman at gunpoint. The crime also involved forcing the woman to perform oral sex on her 12-year-old son.
At his press conference Sharpton said that any violent act toward a woman is inexcusable but he felt that the accused youths were being treated unfairly because they were black. Sharpton contrasted the treatment of the suspects, who remain in jail, with white suspects involComments on Jews
During the Crown Heights Riot, Sharpton (who arranged a rally in Crown Heights after Cato’s death) has been seen by some commentators as inflaming tensions by making remarks that included “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house”.
Comments on gays
Sharpton was quoted as saying to an audience at Kean College in 1994 that, “White folks was [sic] in caves while we was building empires…. We taught philosophy and astrology and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it.” Sharpton defended his comments by noting that the term “homo” was not homophobic but added that he no longer uses the term. Sharpton has since called for an end to homophobia in the African-American community.
Comments on Mormons
- “As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways, so don’t worry about that; that’s a temporary situation.”
In response, a representative for Romney told reporters that “bigotry toward anyone because of their beliefs is unacceptable.” The Catholic League compared Sharpton to Don Imus, and said that his remarks “should finish his career”.
On May 9, during an interview on Paula Zahn NOW, Sharpton said that his views on Mormonism were based on the “Mormon Church’s traditionally racist views regarding blacks” and its interpretation of the so-called “Curse of Ham“. On May 10, Sharpton called two apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and apologized to them for his remarks and asked to meet with them. A spokesman for the Church confirmed that Sharpton had called and said that “we appreciate it very much, Rev. Sharpton’s call, and we consider the matter closed.” He also apologized to “any member of the Mormon church” who was offended by his comments. Later that month, Sharpton went to Salt Lake City, Utah, where he met with Elder M. Russell Ballard, a leader of the Church, and Elder Robert C. Oaks of the Church’s Presidency of the Seventy.
Tawana Brawley controversy
Al Sharpton interviewed in 2007 on whether he is tired of hearing about Tawana Brawley twenty years later.
On November 28, 1987, Tawana Brawley, a 15-year-old African-American girl, was found smeared with feces, lying in a garbage bag, her clothing torn and burned and with various slurs and epithets written on her body in charcoal. Brawley claimed she had been assaulted and raped by six white men, some of them police officers, in the town of Wappinger, New York.
Attorneys Alton H. Maddox and C. Vernon Mason joined Sharpton in support of Brawley. A grand jury was convened; after seven months of examining police and medical records, the jury determined that Brawley had fabricated her story. Sharpton, Maddox, and Mason accused the Dutchess County prosecutor, Steven Pagones, of racism and of being one of the perpetrators of the alleged abduction and rape. The three were successfully sued for slander and ordered to pay $345,000 in damages, the jury finding Sharpton liable for making seven defamatory statements about Pagones, Maddox for two, and Mason for one. Sharpton refused to pay his share of the damages; it was later paid by a number of black business leaders.
In 2007, Sharpton said he would have accepted the case the same as he does today. The only difference would be he would not have made it so personal with Pagones, but he still felt Brawley had a good case to go to trial. “I disagreed with the grand jury on Brawley,” said Sharpton in an interview. “I believed there was enough evidence to go to trial. Grand jury said there wasn’t. Okay, fine. Do I have a right to disagree with the grand jury? Many Americans believe O.J. Simpson was guilty. A jury said he wasn’t. So I have as much right to question a jury as they do. Does it make somebody a racist? No! They just disagreed with the jury. So did I.” 
ved in a gang rape—which he claimed was equivalent to the Dunbar Village attack—who were released after posting bond”
Wow that is quite an impressive list of “problem solving” skills is it not? Eric Holder the U.S. Attorney General, who refused to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation in 2008 and who refuses to investigate the New Black Panther Party’s $10,000 bounty for George Zimmerman’s head, is praising Al Sharpton , a reverend in name only, who has a history of inciting violence and racial tensions.
Combine that with the fact that the Southern Poverty Law Center , a “poverty pimp” organization has stated that there is no such thing as hate speech in regard to threats being made by the New Black Panther Party in Florida. From Infowars.com:
“In the wake of the Trayvon Martin tragedy, the media and left-leaning politcians, along with extremist groups like the Neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement (NSM) and the New Black Panther Party (NBP) have all combined to create a perfect storm which appears to be nudging America in the direction of an all-out race war.
In addition, fake news reports of NSM’s armed Neo-Nazis patrolling the streets of Sanford, Florida were spreading through the media over this past weekend. Infowars went on to expose these as false claims on Tuesday.
When we spoke to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and its Director Mark Potok on Monday, the SPLC rightly confirmed that they had no knowledge of armed Neo-Nazi patrols in Sanford.
But when asked about the seriousness of the New Black Panther Party’s very public, on-radio demand for a ‘blood on the streets’ race war and their ‘Dead or Alive’ $10,000 bounty on the head of Trayvon Martin’s shooter George Zimmerman, and whether authorities should arrest their leader Malik Zulu Shabazz, as well as Michelle Williams and Chawn Kweli, the New Black Panther’s chief of staff in Tampa and a national spokesman, respectively – because their public declarations constituted hate speech… Potok told this writer:
“There’s no such thing as hate speech…”
“… there must be incitement, or an element of immediacy for authorities to intervene.”
Potok went on to add that for hate speech to be actionable, there must be what is termed as a “true threat” in legal language.
Certainly the New Black Panther Party should be categorized as a “hate group”, according to the SPLC’s previous categorization used to demonize numerous domestic patriot and sovereign citizen groups. In fact the SPLC has compiled a list of hundreds of “Natiivist” US hate groups . Surprisingly, the New Black Panther Party does not exist on their extensive list which comprises mostly of “Minutemen” citizen militia organizations situated along America’s borders”
It would certainly seem that left – wing organizations, liberal media and the Department of Justice are working together to create the perfect storm and it is my opinion that they want riots, they want civil unrest , they want anarchy because it would benefit THEM.
At a time when Southern culture, heritage and history are being sytematically erased it goes without saying that ONE of the benefits for the “White House Alliance’s” plan for civil unrest would be to wipe this culture out permenantly. President Obama wants to be a dictator, he has even publically said so on July 25, 2011 stating that: “The idea of doing things on my own is very tempting”
Look for my racial “crises” coming out of the South as election time nears. Lincoln needed a bad guy in 1861, there is no reason to doubt that Obama is blowing the dust off his plan for his own benefit.- webmaster
