Al Sharpton exposed his true colors this week when asked about his feelings toward Police Unions, and the NY Mayor’s request to halt protests out of respect for the fallen police officers. His response was infuriating.
According to the New York Post, Sharpton was asked at a Harlem charity event how he felt about Mayor De Blasio asking protesters to put their anti-cop rhetoric aside for a day. He responded saying, â€œWeâ€™ve said at the National Action Network that [what] weâ€™ve scheduled, weâ€™re going to continue to do,â€
One would expect nothing less from the reverend. He’s the typical hypocritical liberal, demanding respect for himself and his causes, without giving a shred of respect to anyone else. I was wasn’t shocked by this. It was his response to the next question that made me want to tear my hair out. When asked what he thought about Police UnionsÂ criticizing his rhetoric, he said that they were,â€œCheap demagoguesâ€¦ who are trying to score cheap points off the bodies of these police.â€
Now in case you are not sure of what a “demagogue” is, I’ll define it for you:
demÂ·aÂ·gogue- a political leader who seeks support by appealing to popular desires and prejudices rather than by using rational argument.
Or in other words, the perfect description of AL FRICKIN SHARPTON! There should be a picture of him next to the word in the Dictionary! This guy actually has the nerve to accuse others of scoring points off of dead bodies? REALLY? A man who career surfed over a wave of dead black men is complaining about OTHER people trying to score point off dead bodies? Give me a break! Look in the mirror Reverend. If you could just manage to get passed the color of your skin, you might see how wrong you are.
