Why Sharpton is Actually Delighted
by Zimmerman’s Acquittal

American Spectator, by Aaron Goldstein

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 7/14/2013 5:18:15 AM

Upon learning that a jury in Florida had acquitted George Zimmerman of all charges in the murder of Trayvon Martin, Al Sharpton called the verdict “an atrocity” and “a sad day in this country.” But from where I sit, I think Sharpton couldn’t be more delighted with the verdict. The reason I believe this to be so is because an acquittal puts Sharpton in his element. An acquittal gives Sharpton an opportunity to be the center of the media spotlight to tell the world that America is still a racist country. A demagogue must have someone or something against which

Sharpton is a disgusting little man. He puts so much effort stirring up hatred between the races and does nothing to try and stop the murders in the black community. He does nothing to try and bring his people out of the hellhole that is their lives, just stirs up hatred. He is a worthless little man.

Yes, this is exactly what I was thinking. A race-hustler needs something to hustle in order to sell his snake-oil. Now, this pompous ass can climb back onto his racist soapbox and demand everyone listen to him as he makes the determination, of who is racist and who is not. Who died and made Sharpton the know-all be-all of race?

Personally, I´ll never forget the arrogant and disdainful look on Sharpton´s face when he was interrogating...er..interviewing Don Imus after his little racist incident. Anyone seen the ´Rev´ Jesse Jackson recently?

Zim = democrat, Zims lawyers = democrats, Prosecutors = democrats, Al Sharpton = college dropout democrat. The judge = democrat, The Department of Justice that funded the race based protests in Zims town with your tax money... You guessed it DEMOCRATS who worker under President Obama the democrat. A typical hate fest by democrats for democrats on a democrat they didn´t know was a democrat.

Why should the American Spectator care what Al Sharpton thinks? Why should the Spectator think that its readers care what Al Sharpton thinks? I don´t care what he thinks; I wouldn´t even read the article. AS should stop promoting someone who wants race riots to happen.

About 150 years ago we fought a war to free the blacks from slavery. However all we really did was free them physically. They´re still slaves to the democrat party and race pimps like Jackson & Sharpton.

I wish they could read Starr Parker´s book.

Every large American city has street preachers and winos - occasionally one person fills both roles.

There is absolutely no reason we should be hearing from Al Sharpton in 2013. Every time the media put him on the air he gains a little credibility and the media lose a ton. Apparently they consider this a fair exchange.

Sorry, #6, that yOu missed a great article decrying what Sharp Ton is and does. Why should we care? Know The Enemey is the first rule of protection.

Besides, it will be a little harder for Sharp-Ton to make a martyr of St. Trayvon, but he´ll keep trying.

General advice: don´t have a nose so high in the air then miss something awful and step right in it.

One could not ask for a better person to represent the democrats, the Department of Injustice and Obama than Sharpton. A known liar and race hustler. If the Republicans don´t tie Obama and Holder with Sharpton they are missing the chance to define who and what these people are politically.

The other party that´s equally delighted, the mainstream media. Their continued fomenting of discord, and distribution of (at best) half-truths benefits them greatly. #5 & #6 demonstrate that. Al Sharpton delivers eyballs to NBC, and I´m sure they pay him a lot of money because we tune in. It´s time to break that "vicious circle".

More "face time" on camera with his willing "race-baiting" media friends/

This stuff has made him a rich man. If he was truly a minister of the Gospel, he would be preaching about Christ and live by the example He set.

I´m sure he will get a lot of press now as we seek to deify Trayvon in martyrdom like we did JFK. Or maybe, as the "messiah" BO said of his "son".

The race hustling industry is huge in this country, it has burrowed into every agency of government and most large corporations. The liberal Democrats who are completely politically allied to the race hustling industry is now doing everything they can to expand it into the growing Hispanic population groups throughout the USA. The race hustling industry will not go away quietly or anytime soon.

Al, Jesse, and others live off of racism. If they allow racism to disappear, they would have to work for a living and not be a spokesperson for racism. It appears to me that racism is also kept alive by the black community so that they can live off of the government dole. And, just to let you know, I have worked for, with, and had black working for me. And, doing the job was always the most important thing, not the color of their skin or mine.

Logic,itself, has been demonized as a trick developed by old white men to subjugate their poor servile brethren.

So.....why do we bother to waste the time and effort casting these pearls of higher brain function before these "swine" ???

Because it is all that separates us from the jungle and the cave.

Big shout out to Marx and Lenin and Mao.......Alinsky and Sharptounge and Jackson.

Have the radicals succeeded for Obama and the socialist purpose? Will the anger and hatred built by media and long time enemies of America´s success create the opportunity for Obama to declare his desired martial law? If Holder is correct when he says Americans are cowards, then it leads to restoring feudalism and limited individual opportunities. For centuries Muslim leaders have used the angry blood of ignorance to win personal power; now it may be seen witnessed live in America.

Yes #7, we did free slaves from their masters. But how many of today´s blacks know that the KKK was formed by southern DEMOCRATS for purely political reasons? And that for quite a while following all of that that most blacks were REPUBLICAN voters? Then somehow, during the Great Depression and all of the magnificent programs of FDR, they slowly became Dims. All the freebies. And now, they seem to believe it´s their birthright. And Sharpton is one of the worst. I don´t believe that he has ever held a real job that required hard work. He just runs his mouth 24/7.

Racism DOES exist, but it is only a continuing pervasive problem because of leftsts, race-hustlers/baiters and others who gain or profit from its continuence. If people didn´t gain something from it, racism would become nearly negligible and irrelevant. This just proves that people are generally corrupt nowadays.

I think that we should all take a deep breath and calm down. Personally, I´m hoping Presdent Obama holds another one of his popular "beer conferences" on the White House lawn.

Only this time, instead of inviting Sgt. Crowley of the Cambridge, Mass. Police Department and Prof. Henry Lewis of Harvard University, the president invites George Zimmerman and the Rev. Al Sharpton, racial arsonist extraodinaire, to sit down, have a beer or two, and calmly and cordially discuss ways to improve racial relations in this great nation of ours.

Maybe First Lady Michelle Obama will stop by and offer the three gentlemen some of her nutritious and healthy treats from her own personal White House garden? Umm, yummy!

Sharpton looks more like a corpse than ever but, like Ted Kennedy, he probably expects to live forever with his ill-gotten money and media-bestowed power. Actually, I believe putting this liar in the limelight protesting a fair and just verdict may wake up a lot of white people who may be unaware of whats really going on everyday in America.

Of course he thrilled. He´s a liberal Democrat. The typical Dem voter is all about emotions (vengeful over O.J. and outraged over Travon), and the typical Dem leader is all about exploiting emotions. Keeps them from using their brains, you see.

The only way Liberals and Conservatives can EVER agree is if a event is both emotional, and involves wisdom and truth. The last time I can think of such an event was 9/11, when we all agreed we were devastated and had to do something about it. That lasted about five minute until the "truther" loons took over.

Off topic: I noticed that a lot of the media is back to the pic of 12-year-old Trayvon. I suppose they would have used a toddler picture of him, but figured even the low-fos wouldn´t have fallen for it.

VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis said Friday he took personal responsibility for the "evil" of priests who raped and molested children, asking forgiveness from victims and saying the church must be even bolder in its efforts to protect the young. It was the first time a pope has taken personal responsibility for the sex crimes of his priests and begged forgiveness. Francis made the off-the-cuff remarks after coming under criticism from victims´ advocacy groups for a perceived lack of attention to the sexual abuse scandal and ongoing demands that he sanction bishops who covered up for pedophiles.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

The Senate made a historic change to its rules to limit the power of the minority five months ago. But to some senators, it might as well have happened yesterday. The raw feelings still lingering over Democrats’ unilateral change to the Senate’s filibuster rules were on public display on Thursday, when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) bitterly feuded over each others’ leadership.

UPS To Rehire 250 Union Employees

WASHINGTON — After heightened public pressure, UPS has agreed to rehire the 250 workers it fired for staging a brief strike in late February. Workers at a Queens, N.Y, shipping facility walked off the job for 90 minutes in February to protest what they thought was the unjust firing of a co-worker. But UPS said that strike was “illegal,” a term the union disputes, due to the no-strike clause in their contract, and ultimately decided to terminate the workers who participated. The agreement between UPS and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters includes the union compensating UPS for damages over loss

The New York Times reported this week that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell called gender pay equity a “bizarre obsession” of the left. The quote was picked up by a number of sites, including the Daily Kos, Talking Points Memo, The Huffington Post, and ThinkProgress. But as it turns out, that was not what McConnell made the comment about a “bizarre obsession” in reference to. McConnell’s comments on the Senate floor were meant to attack Democrats and President Obama for not being serious about jobs and the economy, referring to the liberal attacks on the Koch brothers. The Times ended up

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report. The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
