  • MSNBC’s Al Sharpton: Can You Imagine If Thomas Jefferson Tried To Overthrow The Government?

    MSNBC host and race-baiter Rev. Al Sharpton is a little confused about why the Founding Fathers are famous and what Americans celebrate every year on July 4. “One day, our children’s children will read American history, and can you imagine our reading that James Madison or Thomas Jefferson tried to overthrow the government so they could stay in power? That’s what we’re looking at,” Sharpton said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “We’re looking at American history, and how it will play out is going to be very important.” His comments are in reaction to former President Donald Trump’s third and latest...
  • Scarborough Disses Nicolle Wallace: Biden Ditched Her To Interview 'Important' Al Sharpton!

    Before Nicolle Wallace was able to toss to the commercial break at the end of her interview, Biden stood up and awkwardly walked off the set. Things got really interesting when Al Sharpton bragged that after the Wallace interview, Biden spent 10-15 minutes speaking with him. That led Scarborough to say: "You can see [Biden] in a hurry to get out of the chair and meet somebody really important. And we all know that person, Rev, was you."Wow! So, in Scarborough's book, Sharpton is really important, but Wallace—whom he didn't even deign to mention by name—ain't. Got it, Joe! Enjoy...
  • Al Sharpton’s racial incitement back on full display in subway case

    It was just like the old days: As New York wrestles with a race-tinged tragedy, Al Sharpton sends a nastygram. SNIP Yet Friday’s race-baiting, however deplorable, is also ironic. It may have benefited Sharpton’s interests — and certainly his ego — but it also undercut a black mayor struggling to govern an increasingly unstable city. Indeed, government in New York — even in Albany — is now overwhelmingly run by black, brown or otherwise minority incumbents. How does racializing a crisis help them?

    Left-wing activist and President of the National Action Network, Al Sharpton, has accused McDonald’s of failing to properly address accusations of racial discrimination by the company. In a Thursday letter sent to McDonald’s Corporation, Sharpton demanded that the company rectify “longstanding” issues regarding their allegedly discriminatory practices. Otherwise, Sharpton warned that he and his group would “mobilize to demand action against the fast-food giant.” “We find it appalling and inexcusable that McDonald’s Corporation has not satisfied its differences with the Black community,” Sharpton said in the letter, before noting the number of legal woes already facing the fast food titan....

    Kenneth Glasgow, an Alabama pastor, voting rights activist and half-brother to the famous Black pastor and MSNBC host, entered a guilty plea in Montgomery, Alabama federal court Friday, the Associated Press recently reported. Glasgow’s plea deal allowed the pastor to avoid a trial for his charges that would've been held in March. The pastor will be sentenced at a later date.

  • Twenty-Five Years Later, Tawana Brawley Tracked Down In Virginia And Hit With Roughly $500,000 Bill

    01/23/2023 7:37:02 AM PST · by billorites · 19 replies ^ | February 1, 2013 | Jonathan Turley
    We have periodically discussed the infamous case of Tawana Brawley and Al Sharpton, now a MSNBC host. In 1987, Brawley, a black teenager, falsely accused a prosecutor, a New York police officer and a state trooper of a racist attack and rape. The racial animus was fueled actively by Al Sharpton who sued the case to propelled himself into national fame or infamy. She later recanted and a court ordered damages to be paid by both Brawley and Sharpton — neither of whom paid. Now the falsely accused former Dutchess County prosecutor Steven Pagones has tracked down Brawley living in...

    It probably would be possible to make a good documentary about Al Sharpton, one that offered some nuanced insight into the life of a genuinely bizarre man, the former child preacher from the streets of Brooklyn, mentored by the likes of Jesse Jackson and James Brown, who would go on to become one of the most recognizable and expensively dressed demagogues of his generation. That film would be nothing like Loudmouth, the John Legend-produced Sharpton documentary available now (for purchase, obviously) on iTunes and Amazon Video after a limited run in theaters and a star-studded world premiere at last year's...

    The events of January 6, Donald Trump meeting with Kanye West and Nick Fuentes, and Trump writing about terminating parts of the Constitution are arguably a gift trifecta greater than anything Joe Scarborough ever got on Christmas. Because Scarborough sees them as giving him an all-purpose cudgel with which to bash conservatives and defend Joe Biden, no matter the issue. Take Friday's Morning Joe for example. The issue was Biden's decision to trade the Merchant of Death for a basketball player—Brittney Griner. Instead of making any serious effort to defend Biden's deal on the merits, Scarborough went on the attack...
  • Anti-Semitic hate crimes in NYC soared 125 percent in November: NYPD

    NY Post ^ | 12/06/2022 | Snejana Farberov
    Anti-Semitic hate crimes in New York City more than doubled in November compared to the same month last year, according to the latest numbers released by the NYPD. There were 45 hate crimes inspired by anti-Semitism across the five boroughs last month, compared to 20 in November 2021 — representing a 125% spike. The dramatic increase coincided with scandals involving Kanye West, now known as Ye, and Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving spewing anti-Semitic rhetoric on Twitter and in interviews. “We have normalized hate and I continue to say the biggest spreader of this hate is social media,” Mayor Eric...

    CNN Host Don Lemon, fresh off his demotion from primetime, pressed a Jewish former State Department official for ten minutes to condemn Donald Trump over his meeting with Kanye West and renowned anti-Semite Nick Fuentes in Mar-a-Lago.Lemon’s exchange got increasingly desperate and painful to watch.“As a grandchild of Holocaust survivors. I’m concerned with the mainstreaming of antisemitism wherever it comes from,” Len Khodorkovsky said. “And I condemn Kanye’s antisemitism and I condemn…”“Do you condemn the former president for meeting with anti-Semites?” Lemon asked.“Sir, sir, alright, you know…”“You said you condemn anti-Semitism and the mainstreaming of anti-Semitism. Do you condemn the...

    Rev. Al Sharpton’s charity nearly doubled his compensation and also shelled out close to $300,000 for private jets so that he and other bigwigs could attend “important gatherings.” The National Action Network paid Sharpton $348,174 in 2021 as its president and CEO and gave him a hefty bonus of $278,503 — plus $22,117 worth of benefits for total compensation of $648,794, its latest tax filing shows. The preacher’s 2020 compensation came to $347,183, which did not include a bonus. NAN also forked over nearly $1 million on private jets and limos.

  • Black Voters Say They’re Concerned About Violent Crime. White Liberals Think It’s a GOP ‘Conspiracy’ Fueled by ‘Data Deniers.’

    Democrats aren't just out of touch with America, they're out of touch with their own voters Black voters are concerned about violent crime. Most Americans agree, with one notable exception: White liberals. According to a recent Pew survey of registered voters, 82 percent of black Democrats said violent crime was a "very important" issue in the 2022 election, compared with just 33 percent of white Democrats. Overall, 61 percent of registered voters described violent crime as a very important factor when deciding who to vote for in the upcoming midterm election. The groups least likely to agree with that assessment...

    WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden told the Rev. Al Sharpton that he will seek a second term in a private conversation at the White House last month, Sharpton informed his National Action Network staff in Washington later that day. “I’m going to do it again,” Biden said as he posed for a photograph in the Roosevelt Room with Sharpton, who is also an MSNBC host, according to an official of Sharpton’s National Action Network who recounted Sharpton’s description. “I’m going.”

    Red State ^ | 10/03/2022 | Mike Miller
    Lemme repeat my headline: When even race-baiter extraordinaire Al Sharpton — grand high potentate of the race-hustling industry — warns Democrats they aren’t connecting with black and Latino voters, Democrats definitely aren’t connecting with black and Latino voters. While the reasons cited by Sharpton as proof of the Democrat Party’s failure to connect with voters of color are incorrect, they serve as further evidence that Democrat politicians aren’t connecting with voters across the political and demographic spectrums. This creates a silver-platter opportunity for Republicans in the November midterms and the 2024 presidential election; if the GOP doesn’t screw up the...

    Since 2018, hate crimes against Jews in New York City have resulted in only one perpetrator spending just a single day in jail, according to a report. An in-depth Sunday piece in the Jewish-centric online magazine Tablet mentioned a report by the group Americans Against Antisemitism that, as the publication put it, “found that of the 118 adults arrested for anti-Jewish hate crimes in New York City since 2018, only one has been convicted and sent to prison.” Year after year, among religious groups, Jews are the leading target of hate crimes annually in the United States, according to the...

    The public outcry around the plight of Brittney Griner is growing louder — and that spells trouble for President Biden, who has been unable to free the basketball star from detention in Russia. Griner wrote to Biden in recent days saying she was “terrified I might be here forever”. Her wife, Cherelle, appears to have lost patience with the administration to take a low-profile approach to Brittney’s jailing. On Tuesday, Cherelle Griner told “CBS Mornings” that it was “very disheartening” not to have heard from Biden directly. Cherelle Griner added: “It kills me every time that, you know, when I...
