A sympathetic victim of the racial tumult surrounding the police shootings in Ferguson and NYC and the subsequent murderous violence against police officers, emerged Sunday, flanked by the mother and widow of Eric Garner at a press conference in Harlem.
Your hearts will melt when you hear what this lifelong defender of the oppressed and disenfranchised has experienced in the wake of the execution-style murders of two police officers, Saturday.
No, he hasn’t had to bury any family members – nor has he been physically harmed, himself. And yes, the telephone harassment he’s experiencing now comes as a response to his own toxic demagoguery — but no one deserves to be verbally abused and threatened by loud-mouthed bullies.
Via the NY Post:
The Rev. Al Sharpton claimed Sunday that he’s received death threats in the wake of execution-style murders of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn.
Sharpton, appearing alongside the wife and mother of Eric Garner, played a voicemail for reporters purportedly of a racist threat made against him.
“Hey n—-r, stop killing innocent people, I’m going to get you!” according to the barely audible recording.
The voice mail also included three f-bombs that went over live television in New York.
Sharpton also took umbrage with police union leaders who have blamed Mayor de Blasio for allegedly inciting violence against cops.
NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were gunned down in cold blood as they sat in their patrol car on Saturday in Brooklyn.
“To blame the mayor and others is not what we need,” Sharpton said. “The blame game will only lead to further kinds of venom and further division.”
And that’s one thing Al Sharpton would never, ever, ever, EVER do – is play the BLAME GAME.
Poor poor Reverend Al – somebody said bad words to him over the phone, making him feel under “intense threat.”
Have a box of tissues handy, mmmkay?
No one in the public eye has ever had to experience such traumatic verbal abuse. Thank God he’s turning over the evidence to the FBI. Eric Holder surely has his top men on this important case. They’ll have those potty mouthed culprit(s) in jail by Christmas.
