Al Sharpton helped incite anti-Jewish riots in Crown Heights, New York in 1991, was convicted of libel for his role in the racially charged Tawana Brawley hoax, incited black anti-Semites against a Jewish business establishment in Harlem in 1995, and stood with the New Black Panthers at a Sanford, Florida “Justice For Trayvon” rally, in March of last year. It’s pathetic that the MSM gives this despicable character a microphone to disseminate his toxic racialist views. It’s scandalous that such a miscreant would be invited to the White House.
The “Reverend Al” revealed the details of his meeting on MSNBC, today with host, Thomas Roberts.
Sharpton revealed that the Department of Justice and the White House intend to vigorously enforce the VRA, particularly against states instituting questionable voter ID laws. He added that Texas and North Carolina were two specific states in the DOJ’s crosshairs.
“It was one meeting – it was unprecedented – the attorney general and the president in the Roosevelt Room of the White House,” Sharpton began. “I talked to the attorney general for an hour and the president for 40 minutes.”
Sharpton said that the DOJ will aggressively combat efforts to disenfranchise voters at the state level and that the Supreme Court decision striking down portions of the VRA as unconstitutional does not prohibit the enforcement of most of the provisions in that law.
For sh*ts and giggles read the comments at Mediaite for some excellent examples of the soft racism of low expectations. It’s rilly rilly hard for blacks to get I.D.’s, you know. That’s why voter ID laws disproportionately effect poor, stupid, helpless black people – who also can’t fly, buy liqueur, check out books from the library, open banking accounts, write checks, go to Obama fund-raising events and any number of other things you need IDs for. But nobody is up in arms about that. They only seem to get exercised about voting. The ability to vote for Obama multiple times is a cherished civil right encoded in the Voter Rights Act, apparently.
Uh-uh! Voter fraud virtually never happens! they whimper.
But, of course, it does.
Last month, the Obama White House hosted a meeting with Sheikh Abdulla bin Bayyah, the Sheikh Who Called for Killing American Troops in Iraq.
The White House has previously invited a member of the Blind Shiekh’s terrorist organization for consultations at the White House.
Hosting race-baiters of Al Sharpton’s ilk is almost as bad. “The People’s House” is turning into the proverbial “wretched hive of villainy and scum.”
Exit Question: Why hasn’t Holder been hounded out of office yet? How many scandals does the man have to be embroiled in and how many times does he need to be caught lying to Congress, before Republicans in the House impeach the corrupt S.O.B.?
