Sharpton breaks promise to Trayvon supporters, fails to show up in Sanford for Easter Occupation
By Matthew Boyle - The Daily Caller 4 hrs ago
MSNBC host and the Rev. Al Sharpton has broken a major promise he made to those supporting him and Trayvon Martins family: he didnt show up in Sanford, Fla., to occupy the town over Easter weekend.
On March 26, Sharpton had vowed to occupy Sanford over Easter weekend to show support for Trayvon, the 17-year-old black teen who was shot by Hispanic man George Zimmerman on Feb. 26.
Were going to have a full blown occupation of Sanford with tents and everything over Easter weekend until [authorities] either arrest George Zimmerman, or arrest us for praying for his arrest, Sharpton told ABC News about two weeks before Easter.
Now though, on Easter weekend, Sharpton is nowhere to be found in the central Florida town. Instead, according to his Twitter feed, hes in Harlem.

Tawana recalled him.
Sharpton is smart enough to know the 15 min of fame he is getting out of this case has just about run out. Sharpton and Jackson only care about ONE thing, and that is the bling bling..no money, no showing up, that simple
LOL, oh, come now, it’s Easter Sunday....I’m sure the Reverend was holding services at his church! /s
Planning a trip to Tulsa?
“Im sure the Reverend was holding services at his church! /s”
The reason might have something to do with how the facts of this case havent exactly been the way Sharpton and his allies originally presented them.
Since Sharpton first promised hed occupy Sanford over Easter weekend, several pieces of his storyline have fallen apart.
Even my liberal relatives are laughing at the Just Us Brothers when I spoke up about the absence of black jelly beans today.
He’s moonwalking. Has heard that a list is being named for upcoming lawsuits and knows his name is at the top.
no cameras, no al.
Comcast is telling Sharpton to pipe down.
They misunderstood him, that’s all. There’s a lot of that going around. What he really said:
Yo we’sre going ta gots uh full blown occupation o’ Sanford wif tents an’ everything ova Easter weekend until [authorities] either arrest George Zimmerman,
or arrest us fo’ praying fo’ his arrest, Don’ make me come ova there bitch...
Sharpton told ABC News ‘bout two weeks b’foe Easter
(coward racist maggot) .. didnt show up in Sanford, Fla., to occupy the town over Easter weekend.
maybe, just maybe, our emails and tweets to MSNBC to fire their violence-promoting ‘correspondent’ made some difference ?
Treyvon is “dead”
Nothing stopping Jesse Jackson from showing up again. Maybe Rev Al got a call from Obama that the polling was beginning to stink on this whole Treyvon thing and the ginned up racial outrage
Why in God’s name would ANYONE follow Sharpton. But then, we can say the same for Reverend Wright. It’s all about “hating whitey”....
He probably couldn’t get a fill in pastor for the Easter services at his church on such short notice.
Maybe he’s trying to sell some Skillets!
Maybe his hoodie didn’t get back from the cleaners in time.
And the tragic shootings in Tulsa, while it is still early, may end up quieting things down. It is all fun and games to push people and blame them for everything and call for riots when the public is basically a decent group that actually mostly wants to get along, but it is a different thing to start seeing that there really are crazy agitated people out there, who may be willing to actually start something.
Most people of all races can look at their own lives, and their parents and grandparents, and conclude today is a much better time for themselves. We all really do have something to lose if things deteriorate, and Rev Jackson and Rev. Sharpton are old enough to fully understand that, because they have seen it with their own eyes.
I have a feeling that brother Al is very advisedly *not* going to be anywhere near Florida in the near future.
The New Black Panther Party has called for a “day of action” in Sanford, tomorrow (Monday). There are allegedly armed neo-Nazis down there as well. And Florida law enforcement is “on edge”, at best.
In other words, there is too much possibility for entertainment, and Al knows that there are a lot of people out there waiting for the chance to dress him up in county pajamas, or worse. And Al’s highest priority is to keep Al out of harm’s way.
That idiotic hypocrite knows his little scheme is falling apart. I bet he went runnin’ to Jesse’s house to plan their next move.......like both of them moving outta the country I hope. This ain’t the Twawna Brawley and Hymietown atmosphere anymore where more than enough lamestreams and useful idiots of the black community made it something it wasn’t and they thought with this Martin thing they could get away with it again. More and more people are catching on to these two dispicable race whores!
Even though I despise both the New Black Panther Party and the Neo-Nazi’s as much as I do the KKK I’ll be rootin’ for the Nazi’s if there’s a fight. :(
Or, he knows they have done the maximum amount of damage with this one and it’s time to move on to the next.
Hey, give him a break. This race hustling is really hard work.
The race baiters are worried about getting charged or sued by anyone harmed by his thuggish band of followers.
Yeah, the gig didn’t pay enough to be worth his time & effort.
When the prosecutor announces tomorrow that no charges will be filed against Zimmerman, the story will die with a whimper.
With CNN and MSNBC backtracking and talk of lawsuits big enough to bankrupt them, “Reverend” Al ain’t getting in any deeper on this turd pile
NBC cracking down on their klan with the tan and their cracker wannabes in da network?
They don’t want any more evidence in court that their employees incited racial violence via slandering Mr. Zimmerman even after they were nailed altering a police recording to make Zimmerman appear to be a “white” racist.
Shakedown Al is paid enough at NBC to forego the small fish in the communist movement at OWS.
Bwa ha ha ha!! Dem fools trusted Al!
Guessing you are correct. The facts look more promising for his brand of race-baiting, now in Tulsa.
I think the Obama crowd has probably told him to chill before there is an uncontrollable voting backlash leading up to the election.
Sharpton be there Monday afternoon at the earliest. I think he was too tired today from all the talkin he's been doin for the past coupla weeks.
I think the program directors at msnbc had a chat with him.
I think the program directors at msnbc had a chat with him.
Since that guy who “needs his nuts cut off”, according to Jackson, has been in the white house Jesse and Al haven’t had many racial issues to complain about. They saw this as a chance to get back to being “civil rights leaders”.
I think they outta Occupy Sharpton now. No. Really.
And the tragic shootings in Tulsa, while it is still early
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Same type topic - There was shooting in DC the other day, a group of yutes was shot in broad daylight while engaged in a crap game.
The witlesses claim 4 or 5 walked through the park behind an apartment complex and shot the crappers.
The witlesses basically agreed it was probably a robbery since the TEENS played CRAPS in the courtyard EVERY DAY and the ‘others’ knew there was a lot of MONEY involved.
When further questioned etc, the witlesses told the camera that they were appalled at the lack of police patrol that allow the crap game every day.
NOW, being a ‘thinking’ person I ask/opine:
Where are all these yutes getting money to enjoy blowing in a high stakes crap game?
Was there really enough money involved to warrant a group of gunmen?
All the eyewitlesses were talking to the local news reporters, one can only imagine what they (didn’t) told Police.
ALSO, can you imagine the S-Storm if the police came to this ‘peaceful’ apartment complex to break up a crap game.
They hardly are effective in breaking up drug sales and get about as much cooperation from the tenants/hangers on.
Nobody came through with his first class plane fare and limo in Sanford.
“Has heard that a list is being named for upcoming lawsuits and knows his name is at the top.”
Man, I hope that’s true!
A pox on the Daily Caller and/or Yahoo for publishing the full blown ‘eff’ word twice. And the final paragraph is very poorly written, IMO.
That said, I hadn’t heard what the last paragraph reports about Zimmerman. Interesting if true.
Maybe the money dried up from sales.
