[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]MSNBC’s Al Sharpton, the renowned racial grievance industry profiteer, took his shakedown tactics for money to an entirely new and low level over the weekend. Al has made a lot of money by inserting himself in volatile issues, always crying racism, ginning up animosity and violence, and making demands, including monetary, as he yells and screams his way to progressive prominence. Most recently, he has latched on to the #BlackLivesMatter movement always siding against police, regarding any and all facts.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Ol’ Al has typically ignored the black on black violence that is destroying communities and snuffing out young black lives. Many innocent black children and teens have been killed with hardly a word uttered by the race baiting likes of Sharpton or Barack Obama. But, this weekend was different. Sharpton traveled to Hartford, Connecticut to participate in a march addressing five homicides that took place in the city in a two week time span.
After the march, Sharpton joined a group at Shiloh Baptist Church in Hartford. While he did reportedly get the crowd riled up, he went to far, in one pastor’s opinion, when he began speaking about the desire for a memorial in the name of those five deceased individuals.
Sounds all nice and altruistic, right? Wrong. Remember, when it comes to Al Sharpton, he is about one thing.
Sharpton said, “I want to be here to see a memorial for the young people that have died. I want the names and their stories up so children can see they don’t want to be on that wall.” That’s when he took the typical Sharpton turn.
He then asked those in attendance to donate $100 each to his tax evading National Action Network group.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]At that point, another pastor in the church, Marcus Mosiah Jarvis who is the pastor at Christ the Cornerstone Praise and Western Tavernacle, said the words that took bold courage to call Sharpton out for what he truly is. As another speaker also urged every pastor and preacher to donate to Sharpton’s group Jarvis yelled, “How dare you ask the people of Hartford to give you their money. You’re nothing but a pimp!”
Of course, saying the hard and ugly truth about Sharpton led to the attempt to escort Jarvis out of the church. But, he retreated to the back instead, stood by his words, and added more. Jarvis criticized Sharpton’s charlatan ways accusing him of using his organization as a front group and “coming into a community where people are struggling for jobs, struggling for money, and demanding money to speak.”
Al Sharpton is reportedly worth $5 million. He owes the state and federal government over $4 million in back taxes. Yet, he asks those who have far less, for many of whom $100 would be beyond a stretch, for money?
But, he didn’t stop there.
Al didn’t skip a beat in his push for money. To show that he, as a multi-millionaire, is down for the struggle and will do what he can to get the memorial built, he pulled $1,000 out of his wallet, a drop in the bucket for a millionaire, and continued to ask the crowd for $100 each saying, “Everything that you all raise will go to a memorial. For the lives that could have gone on to cure cancer. Lives that could have been the next President of the United States.”
What a piece of work.
