For most of his life Sharpton has been promoting violence
Like the funeral of Gavin Cato in 1991 where Al Sharpton gave a powerful eulogy inspiring hatred and Antisemitism:
“The world will tell us he was killed by accident. Yes, it was a social accident. ... It's an accident to allow an apartheid ambulance service in the middle of Crown Heights. ... Talk about how Oppenheimer in South Africa sends diamonds straight to Tel Aviv and deals with the diamond merchants right here in Crown Heights. The issue is not anti-Semitism; the issue is apartheid. ... All we want to say is what Jesus said: If you offend one of these little ones, you got to pay for it. No compromise, no meetings, no kaffe klatsch, no skinnin' and grinnin'. Pay for your deeds."Those people in Crown Heights especially those who were hurt in the violence never had justice from Sharpton's incitement. According to the sworn testimony of Efraim Lipkind, a former Hasidic resident of Crown Heights:
“Then we had a famous man, Al Sharpton, who came down, and he said Tuesday night, kill the Jews, two times. I heard him, and he started to lead a charge across the street to Utica. ---“The MSM which "adores" Sharpton, never asks him about when NYC Jews complained about the Antisemitism of Black College professor Leonard Jeffries in 1991, Sharpton called them race baiters adding “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house"--
Sharpton was promoting hatred when he libeled former NY State AG Robert Abrams, who he refused to meet with during the Tawana Brawley hoax because meeting Abrams would be “like asking someone who watched someone killed in the gas chamber to sit down with Mr. Hitler.” Is this the voice of a preacher? Is it the voice of someone trying to unite the races? Or is the voice of a man inciting hatred?
In 1987 Steven Pagones former Assistant District Attorney in Duchess County was accused by Sharpton of raping Tawana Brawley. Not only was Pagones nowhere near Brawley that night, but also the entire rape story was a fraud.
Yosef Lifsh, the driver of the car that tragically struck Gavin Cato in August 1991 was falsely accused by Al Sharpton falsely of driving drunk that night despite that police tested him and he was clean. Al Sharpton incited so much hate against Lifsh that he fled to Israel.
Note: While much of the Crown Heights riot can be blamed on the incitement of Al Sharpton, Yankel Rosenbaum's murder cannot. He was killed before Sharpton got involved.
Angelina Marrero, Cynthia Martinez, Luz Ramos, Mayra Rentas , Olga Garcia, Garnette Ramautar, Kareem Brunner, the seven victims of the massacre at Freddy's Fashion Mart never had justice. They are dead because a four-month-long campaign of hate by Al Sharpton led to a man firebombing the clothing store killing the seven innocents.
Sharpton should be called out about the "Central Park Jogger" who was raped and beaten to within an inch of her life and her former boyfriend. Sharpton led rallies where he claimed the "jogger" was raped by her boyfriend and the woman who was raped and beaten to within a hair of death was called a whore. Whether the men on trial were innocent or guilty didn't matter to Sharpton, he promoted hatred via falsehood.
Sharpton helped to destroy the political career of David Dinkins, the hapless first black mayor of NYC. He was angrily denounced by Sharpton using these words, “David Dinkins, you wanna be the only ni**er on television, only ni**er in the newspaper, only ni**er that can talk. Don’t cover them, don’t talk to them, ’cause you got the only ni**er problem. ‘Cause you know if a black man stood up next to you, they would see you for the whore that you really are“ Perhaps the MSNBC star could be asked about HIS Black hatred.
Remember the controversy surrounding the Duke lacrosse team? They were falsely accused of rape and without any facts Al Sharpton declared that these ”rich white boys” had attacked a ”black girl,” and he warned that if arrests were not made immediately, there would be no peace. He further claimed, "this case parallels Abner Louima, who was raped and sodomized in a bathroom [by a New York City police officer] like this girl has alleged she was.... and just like in the Louima case, you have people here saying she fabricated it.” It was later proven that indeed she had totally invented the story and all charges against the defendants were dropped." Should this man that some call Reverend be called out for violating the 9th Commandment, "Thou shalt not bear false witness...?"
What about political slanders, the those at the press conference should ask about that hatred. . For example he once told his radio audience that Republicans view black people as subhumans, much as Adolf Hitler saw Jews. "It seems like they [some of the right wing] act as though some wiping out of people ... is alright. It's not alright to do to any innocent people.... [T]o wipe out innocent people just 'cause of who they are, like was done in Hitler's Germany, or was done to Native Americans, is not justified." As a Republican who lost family member in the holocaust I don't understand why Sharpton wasn't criticized by the MSM for this comment which was hateful on so many levels.
Most of Sharpton’s acts of hate were not criminal they were immoral. But the press never confronts him about it, even worse the President and Attorney General of the United States makes this hater an adviser.
Now just like Freddy's Fashion Mart this pseudo preacher has had a role, inciting the deaths of innocents. This time it was the deaths of two people charged with protecting all New Yorkers, black and white, or like the two murdered cops Asian and Latino.
At Michael Brown's funeral Al Sharpton said "God judges you for what you did on Earth” He’s correct, because in the end it is all up to God to dispose final justice. However just once I would like to see the mainstream media pursue justice by asking Sharpton how does he think God will judge him for filling the world with chamas, a biblical Hebrew word meaning violence and cruelty?
The mainstream media should be perusing truth and justice about Al Sharpton, indeed we all should. They should be asking the Sharpton to justify his hatred of others. And the rest of us should be pressing the media to ask those tough questions. We must begin to demand that our leaders not give this man the time of day. It’s time for Al Sharpton to be labeled for what he is-- a hater not a healer.
