How Sharpton Gets Paid To Not Cry ‘Racism’ At Corporations

 

 

 

 

 

” Want to influence a casino bid? Polish your corporate image? Not be labeled a racist?

  Then you need to pay Al Sharpton.

  For more than a decade, corporations have shelled out thousands of dollars in donations and consulting fees to Sharpton’s National Action Network. What they get in return is the reverend’s supposed sway in the black community or, more often, his silence.

  Sony Pictures co-chair Amy Pascalmet with the activist preacher after leaked e-mails showed her making racially charged comments about President Obama. Pascal was under siege after a suspected North Korean cyber attack pressured the studio to cancel its release of “The Interview,” which depicts the assassination of dictator Kim Jong-un.

  Pascal and her team were said to be “shaking in their boots” and “afraid of the Rev,” The Post reported.

No payments to NAN have been announced, but Sharpton and Pascal agreed to form a “working group” to focus on racial bias in Hollywood.

“ Al Sharpton has enriched himself and NAN for years by threatening companies with bad publicity if they didn’t come to terms with him. Put simply, Sharpton specializes in shakedowns,” said Ken Boehm, chairman of the National Legal & Policy Center, a Virginia-based watchdog group that has produced a book on Sharpton.

  And Sharpton, who now boasts a close relationship with Obama and Mayor de Blasio, is in a stronger negotiating position than ever.

“ Once Sharpton’s on board, he plays the race card all the way through,” said a source who has worked with the Harlem preacher. “He just keeps asking for more and more money.” “

Politicians Benefit From American Tribal Warfare

 

 

 

 

” Tribalism is the default state of humanity: The tendency to defend our own tribe even when we think it’s wrong, and to attack other tribes even when they’re right, just because they’re other. Societies that give in to the temptations of tribalism — which are always present — wind up spending a lot of their energy on internal strife, and are prone to disintegrate into spectacular factionalism and infighting, often to the point of self-destruction.

  Societies that temper those tribal tendencies, replacing them with the mechanisms of civil society, do much better. But there is much opportunity for political empire-building in tribalism, and if the benefits of stoking tribal fires exceed the costs for political actors, then expect political actors to pour gasoline on even the smallest spark.

  That’s pretty much what’s happened in the last few months, and the results haven’t been good. In America, we have both a police culture that is too quick to escalate force, and an aggressive victim culture, embodied by the loathsome Al Sharpton, that seeks to portray every police use of force, at least against members of the wrong racial and ethnic groups, as excessive.”

Watch Al Sharpton Get Undermined By Eric Garner’s Wife While Sitting Right Next To Her

 

 

 

 

” While many in the streets of Ferguson and across the nation are beating the race-baiting drums after the decisions to not indict the police officers in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner cases, Garner’s wife, Esaw, appeared on Meet the Press with host Chuck Todd and Al Sharpton to speak her mind about her husband’s death.

  After Todd opened by saying that her husband’s death has become “the face of bias” for the police force, Mrs. Garner countered by saying that she doesn’t believe race had anything to do with his death. She, like her daughter, Erica Garner, chose not to buy into the racial fire that some are trying to stoke.”

” Al Sharpton, the race hustler who resembles an ambulance chaser, has been a busy man lately with a number of deaths involving black men in the news, but a Brooklyn family appears to see the man for what he is.

  The family of Akai Gurley, who was fatally shot recently in a housing project stairwell, has made it clear that Sharpton is not welcome at the man’s wake or funeral, according to TMZ. Sharpton has said he will deliver a eulogy at the wake.

“ Al Sharpton came in, put his name on the situation, but has not even made one single call to the parents to Akai,” said Gurley’s aunt, Hertenceia Peterson. “

Sheriff David Clarke Blasts Obama, Holder, And Sharpton Over Handling Of Ferguson Situation And Poverty

 

 

 

 

 

” David Clarke, a sheriff in Milwaukee County, joined Megyn Kelly on The Kelly File to speak about Attorney General Eric Holder, President Obama, and Al Sharpton.

  The sheriff began by unleashing on Holder for his statements when he threw police officers “under the bus,” suggesting they patrol just looking to kill black people. 

“He claims he wants justice for all, but apparently he doesn’t want justice for police officers,” Clarke said.

  Then the sheriff laid into Obama for his most recent White House meeting, which Clarke classified as a “Kabuki theater.” Had he attended the meeting, the sheriff said he would have asked the president why, if he was so concerned about the anger and unrest in the black community, he did not take an action that would actually work? “

SNL Cold Open Ridicules Obama on Ebola – ” Probably One of My Greatest Accomplishments “

 

 

 

Published on Oct 25, 2014

” Saturday Night Live kicked off tonight with an over-the-top mockery of President Obama‘s handling of the Ebola crisis. As the fake president explained, hey, it’t not like they handled it as badly as they did ISIS, Obamacare, or all the rest of it…In fact, as the president explained, “This whole Ebola thing is probably one of my greatest accomplishments.” He then brought on Ebola czar Ron Klain to take questions from the press and advised voters in Southern states like Louisiana and Kentucky to avoid large crowded areas like, say, polling places, for the next week or so. (Latinos in those states, however, may have an immunity.)

  And just when you thought things couldn’t get more ridiculous, Al Sharpton himself took the stage to assure panicked New Yorkers that all is well… in a very Sharpton-ish manner.”

Jim Norton, On HuffPostLive, Attacks Liberal Hypocrisy On Race And Political Correctness

 

 

Jim Norton

 

” Comedians often aim their jokes at conservatives, but not this time. Comedian Jim Norton attacked Al Sharpton, host of MSNBC’s “Politics Nation,” and his network for hypocritically promoting racial and homophobic vitriol.

  Norton criticized Sharpton and MSNBC while on Nov. 19’s HuffPostLive. He claimed that MSNBC exhibits a double standard where they accept certain offensive behavior by individuals such as Sharpton, but censor contributors like Alec Baldwin. He also attributed a similar hypocrisy to Hollywood’s conception of political correctness.

  Norton, known for his popular radio show “Opie & Anthony,” get slamming Sharpton, saying he’s “been an absolute pig for many years, and he gets away with it because everyone’s afraid just to tell him exactly what a complete a**hole he is.”

  When asked about MSNBC host’s Alec Baldwin’s recent homophobic remarks, Norton said that he had “no problem with Alec Baldwin.” Instead, his problem is “with MSNBC and they mete out punishment arbitrarily.” He criticized MSNBC for punishing Baldwin, while ignoring the “jackass” Al Sharpton. MSNBC’s recent blind eye towards Martin Bashir is certainly an example of this double standard.”

” A former high-ranking member of “Gangster Disciples” street gang, “Noonie G,” has called out the Chicago machine for failing to address the root causes of Chicago violence: the illegal drug trade. Speaking to Breitbart’s Rebel Pundit, he referred to people like Jesse Jackson, Jr., and Al Sharpton as “sympathy pimps,” unleashing a scathing attack on the players who enable the violence to continue–and shield the public from a true understanding of what’s going on…”

Elijah Cummings Claims One Republican Mastermind Behind IRS Scandal

 

Elijah_Cummings_Repub_Did_It

 

 

” The Democrat Rep. from Maryland let loose on what was sure to be the final piece of the Orwellian puzzle that made everything ‘suddenly make sense’ at Media Matters. From the Daily Caller:

Rep. Elijah Cummings has yet to reveal the name of the “conservative Republican” IRS agent he claims started the agency’s improper targeting of conservative groups, despite evidence that the targeting was overseen by a registered Democrat working out of Washington, D.C.

Cummings, a Democrat from Maryland and the top Democrat on the House oversight committee, claimed this week that an unnamed Republican manager in the IRS’s Cincinnati office started the agency’s targeting of conservative groups, and that “the case is solved” with no evidence of White House wrongdoing.

Cummings claimed in a letter to Republican Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa, dated June 9, that his staff had interviewed a “conservative Republican” manager from the IRS’ Cincinnati office who took the blame for the improper targeting.

After finishing his letter to Chairman Darrell Issa of the House’s Government Reform and Oversight Committee, Cummings apparently slapped his hands together, rubbed them back and forth a bit, and said to himself, “well, that’s that.” Because on CNN, he effectively told extremely credible guy Al Sharpton that the case is “solved” and there’s no there ‘there’:”

” On the cold open of Saturday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” Kenan Thompson impersonated of MSNBC “Politics Nation” host Al Sharpton, in a clip that also parodied Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank.

Thompson’s Sharpton fumbled his way through the show, proclaiming the tea party to be perturbed by the ‘irs,’ meaning the IRS, and previewed a clip of what was supposed to be Sen. Mitch McConnell, but wound up being Matthew McConaughey on Jimmy Fallon’s late-night show talking about eating sushi.

Also appearing was Jason Sudeikis playing Post scribe Milbank, whose first name Thompson’s Sharpton disapproved of.”

 

 

 

 

Gov. Cuomo’s Gun-Reform Bill To Have New Ammo Behind It, As Activists From Several Groups, Celebs Like Ed Norton, Russell Simmons, Forming Coalition Supporting Law

 

 

 

 

” A new coalition of activists, unions and celebrities has formed to hit back against the vocal opposition to Gov. Cuomo’s recently approved gun-reform law, sources told the Daily News.

The coalition, according to one source, will include activists from the following groups: Brady Campaign To Prevent Gun Violence; Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which Mayor Bloomberg co-founded; New Yorkers Against Gun Violence; Moms Demand Action; and the powerful health care union Local 1199 SEIU.

A series of public events are being planned across the Empire State to tout the advantages of the reform bill, which the Legislature approved last month.

Among the celebrities said to have joined the nascent effort are hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, actor Ed Norton and the Rev. Al Sharpton.

“Despite the protestations of a vocal minority, polls consistently show that New Yorkers are in favor of common-sense gun laws by a wide margin,” one source said.

A pro-gun-control event is expected to be held at the state Capitol within the next few weeks.”

 

Tawana Brawley Found After Decades, Served Court Order For Defamation Case

 

 

 

 

” Racial tensions flared in 1987 when Ms. Brawley, her lawyers and the Rev. Al Sharpton accused a group of white men of covering her in feces and writing epithets on her body. A grand jury found that Ms. Brawley had fabricated the story and in 1998, Pagones was awarded $185,000 in damages — none of which has been paid.

An investigation by the New York Post led the paper to Hopewell, Va., where she was working as a nurse under the name Tawana Vacenia Thompson Gutierrez. Due to the interest that has accumulated over 25 years, Ms. Brawley owes Pagones roughly $430,000.”

 

MSNBC Debates If Obama Should Be on Mount Rushmore

” MSNBC debating whether or not Barack Obama should be on Mount Rushmore is like a bunch of fat kids debating whether or not to eat cake. Just dispense with the formalities and start carving already.

Touré is not willing to put Obama on Mount Rushmore until he is done with his “fundamental transformation” of America, including gun control,  immigration reform and gay rights. Touré is willing to get Clinton into the mix, though, “another great American president.” ”

” Belafonte’s comment reveals the true nature of the “progressive” – it differs little from that of the communist thug who has zero tolerance for any opposition. Belafonte’s mindset ultimately terminates in purges, “cultural revolutions,” and death camps.”

  I’m a little late to this party , thanks to Bob Owens for pointing me to this Examiner article about the wondrous state of racial affairs , courtesy of the great racial “healer”.

” Al Sharpton recently said that Republicans were waging a war on Black people, (and) time to fire
back. I missed the memo; I didn’t realize Republicans had done that, and I’m not sure under whose orders.”

Fan the flames Rev ,

” Sharpton concluded that
Republicans are trying to take back the achievements of Blacks over the last half century because they don’t like the idea of a Black president. He’s simply fueling the flames of violence, hoping Black Americans will fight. “

You know , it seems to me that if all of Barack’s  friendsstaff , advisors and associates paid up their back taxes and penaties it would contribute a whole lot more towards reducing the deficit than a dozen ” Buffett ” tax scams .
