    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Friday on “Deadline” that he believed a “lack” of gun legislation in the United States was a civil rights issue because society was “arming bigots.” Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “Kamala Harris will lead this effort. She spoke today about witnessing firsthand the impacts of gun violence during her time as a prosecutor and attorney general.”

During his weekly broadcast from his National Action Network headquarters in Harlem, Sharpton said he’s concerned that the influential 1199 Service Employees International Union Local is not investing in a way that reflects the diversity of its members, following an exclusive report by The Post about the union’s hypocritical investment strategy.
  • 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...

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Tuesday on “Deadline” that Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) had said “we should erase” black and LGBTQ people. Sharpton said, “When we look at the president and vice president, they stood there today with the survivor of the Till family, talking at that very moment in Florida, you have a state Board of Education that is saying that we are going to change how black history is taught. You have a governor who has said that we don’t need to say anything that makes others uncomfortable when it comes to blacks or, for that matter, LGBTQ...

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Thursday on “José Díaz-Balart Reports” that the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on affirmative action programs for college admissions was a “dagger in our backs.” Sharpton said, “Well, I think that this is tantamount to sticking a dagger in our back because what they have said now is that it is unconstitutional to even consider race. And given the racial history of the country, let’s not act like blacks are behind because there’s something in our genes that made us behind. It was against the law for us to even read and write until 160 years...

    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....

    Al Sharpton took a shot at progressives at a conference hosted by his National Action Network on Thursday, saying he’s now in lockstep with Mayor Eric Adams on fighting big city crime. “Anybody that tells you they’re progressive but don’t care about dealing with violent crimes are not,” Sharpton said at the Sheraton New York hotel in Times Square. “Progressive for who? “We gotta stop using progressive as a noun and use it as an adjective,” he said. “You’re labeled progressive but your action is regressive. I’m woke? You must think I’m asleep.” He said he’s on board with Adams...

    Al Sharpton, the civil rights activist and reverend, said he thinks the indictment of former President Trump was “spiritual,” saying Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg will “deliver us justice.” “I’m always looking for the spiritual interpretation of something. And I think it’s very ironic that on … the 55th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination, that the president that tried to turn back a lot of what King did is going to be arraigned in Manhattan Supreme Court by a Black DA,” Sharpton said at an event at New York University on Monday before Trump’s arraignment, according to the Washington Times....

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.

A federal judge refused to issue a retiree restraining order to block people from guarding drop boxes in the state. Are you concerned that this will inspire voter intimidation further?”

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Monday on “Morning Joe” that he believed it was an “insult” the Republican Party chose Herschel Walker as their nominee in Georgia’s U.S. Senate race because he is black. Co-host Jonathan Lemire said, “You believe that Walker’s in this position as the Republican nominee for the Senate in Georgia because he is a football star, sure, buts also because he is a black man.

    MSNBC host Al Sharpton said Friday on “Deadline” that Govs. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Gregg Abbott (R-TX) sending migrants to several cities, including Chicago, Washington D.C., New York City, and Martha’s Vineyard is using the tactics of segregationists in the early 1960s. Sharpton said, “This is as morally despicable as you can get. And I think that is an element of this that is racially tinged. It is not lost on a lot of us that they send them to Washington, D.C., to Mayor Bowser, to Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Eric Adams in New York City, all black mayors, and...

    Twenty-eight civil rights and health care groups announced Tuesday they have requested that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) address “dietary racism” in national school lunch programs, raising concerns to the federal agency about forcing millions of minority children to drink cow’s milk without allowing them a healthier alternative. In a letter to the USDA’s Equity Commission, the groups said the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) only incentivizes dairy milk, a policy they called “inherently inequitable and socially unjust” because children of color are more likely to be lactose intolerant — meaning they cannot fully digest sugars in dairy and...

    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...

Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “Do you still have hope that the questions that people are asking in November can be questioned where it is obvious that the Democratic Party is the only one for saving our democracy, for protecting the rights? Do you still think the questions can be reframed ahead of the midterms?”

They didn’t even have enough humanity to say this is historic. I think that that is very telling. and she comes on the bench in a divided time, giving hope to people that’s going to have to fight those divisions.”
