Al Sharpton Appointed To Keep Black Voters Angry And Ill-informed – OpEd


You can imagine the justifiable extreme anger and outrage of black America in1987. Six white men including police officers and a New York prosecutor kidnapped, raped and smeared feces over the body of a fifteen year old black girl. Tawana Brawley was found unconscious and unresponsive lying in a garbage bag, her clothes torn and burned. In the emergency room, racial slurs and epithets were discovered written on Brawley’s torso with charcoal.

Al Sharpton, eager to launch his national career, ran to the microphones and cameras as Tawana Brawley’s adviser. The problem was, it was all a hoax.

Fearful of getting into trouble for staying away from home for four days, Brawley made up the whole horrific racial-hate-inspiring story. After hearing the evidence, or lack of, a grand jury concluded Brawley was lying.

The New York prosecutor whom Brawley accused of being one of her rapists sued Brawley and Sharpton for defamation and won. And yet, Sharpton still says the Brawley incident happened.

The Tawana Brawley Hoax confirms that truth and fair play are irrelevant in Sharpton’s continuing quest to stir the pot-of-racial-hate to bludgeon white America and instill anger in black America for political gain. Sickeningly evil.

I remember Anthony Quinn as Barabbas in the biblical movie, “Barabbas”. Barabbas was a criminal sentenced to death. For Passover, the governor could commute the death sentence of a prisoner selected by popular demand. The multitude could save the life of Jesus or Barabbas. They yelled, “Give us Barabbas”. Barabbas was freed. Jesus was crucified.

Arrogantly usurping authority to speak on behalf of black America, the left has yelled, Give us Al Sharpton! Why has MSNBC, the mainstream media and president Obama appointed this despicable man spokesperson for black America? There are numerous honorable blacks in the national arena.

Sharpton was selected by the left as black America’s mouthpiece because his political agenda is in solidarity with their hate America Progressive movement. They are committed to government controlling our behavior and every aspect of life in America. Loyalty to their cause trumps race and even the faith of those who claim to be Christians. How else can you explain Sharpton demanding the removal of a billboard in the black community which exposed the genocide of blacks via abortion?

Rev. Al Sharpton has turned his back on the Bible’s anti-abortion teachings while supporting Planned Parenthood founder’s vow to exterminate blacks; in loyalty to the left’s progressive agenda.!

The left appointing Sharpton a spokesperson for black America is a perfect example of their moral bankruptcy and willingness to employ the devil to further their agenda. Sharpton still stands behind Tawana Brawley’s absurd over-the-top evil lie that six white men including police and a New York prosecutor raped her. In a decent world, Sharpton would be disqualified for the role of national spokesperson of anything. And yet, the left has crowned Sharpton chief of black America.

As an American who happens to be black, I am outraged. The left’s selection of Sharpton as our spokesperson confirms their low opinion of black America; our sense of morality, honor and decency. The left, (democrats, mainstream media and Obama) continue to tell black America, by their actions, how little they think of us. They ignore or demonize highly successful, articulate America loving black conservatives, while elevating lying America hating race-baiters.

In 2010, President Obama asked Sharpton to be his ambassador to the black community. Obama instructed Sharpton to tell black leaders to chill-out and stop saying his economic policy failed to help black communities hit hard by the downturn.

The foundation of democrat politics is dealing with Americans as monolithic voting blocs. I take offense with Obama acting as if black America were a huge tribe, taking marching orders from Chief Sharpton. I am an American who happens to be black. I think for myself.

Obama and his buddies on the left promote “group think”. Their tactic for winning elections is to divide Americans into groups or voting blocs. Then they convince each group; women, minorities, gays, the poor, and etc that they are being victimized by evil republicans. Vote for us and we’ll keep the evil republicans at bay!

Case in point: The democrat’s latest lie claims republicans have launched a “War on Women”. The truth is Obama, against the Constitution, is trying to force churches and taxpayers to fund abortion against their religious faith. America said, H– no! Democrats are trying to spin America’s rebuke of Obama’s overreach of authority by saying republicans wish to ban contraception. This is a lie. Republicans do not wish to ban birth control in any way.

Note the tried and true democrat trick. They lie to rally women by claiming republicans hate them. Then democrats say vote for us to protect you.

Sharpton was appointed to lie to blacks, keep them fired up hating republicans, the rich, conservatives and the tea party. The left says “conservative” is code for racist whites. Such rhetoric promotes racial hatred.

A prolific liar, Sharpton attempts to rally black America – republicans are hogging it all and dissing the first black president. Keep in mind, Sharpton still claims six white men including police officers and a New York prosecutor kidnapped, raped and smeared feces over the body of a fifteen year old black girl.

Good Lord, Black America, is this the man you want representing you? Al Sharpton does not speak for me!

    You do realize you will be labeled racist for writing this and probably accused of not being black. Remember the left preaches that no black can be a republican when the Democrats have done nothing but keep the poor and colored poor with their dependent programs of welfare and the such. But the media is no longer the media its a non reality show unfortunately filled with lies and innuendos- thanks for the article enjoyed it.

    Although your article may be accurate with regards to Mr. Sharpton and I totally agree with you regarding the ideological left; group think is of a particular problem in the majority (not all) of black communities. However, your article isn’t completely balanced. We can all agree that certain programs, particularly advocated by progressives (democrats, liberal, left, etc., whatever), are indeed harmful and oppressive. Conversely, conservatives (republicans, right-wing, tea party, orginalists, etc., whatever) have not exactly embraced either fairness or unity in their opinions too. Both extremes are flawed.

    Unfortunately, it appears from the tone of your article you are angry with President Obama and Sharpton, but your argument that should be valid in certain respects gets hidden behind rhetoric. You cannot seriously hold yourself out to be an authority (I’m assuming this because you wrote this article) if you cannot not recognize the institionalized racism that still exists in our politics from BOTH sides of the aisle.

    So, please explain to me, how does a Republican party – controlled now by Dixicrats (former bigoted Democrats or better said cultural conservatives) – get someone like myself (a black American, social & financial conservative, moderate thinker) to see the virtues of the party without totally abdicating my civic responsibility because of the nonsense coming from both sides?

    I live for a day when politics can return to people serving the country (not trying to control it, but never forgetting how we far we’ve come, and oh how so much farther we have to go) instead of treating service to this Nation as an opportunity to earn as much money as possible while telling everyone anything they want to hear.

    Where are the people like candidate California State Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher running for mayor of San Diego? I may not agree with everything he may have to say, but he sounds like someone who can work together to get things accomplished.
