What ever else you want to say about Al Sharpton, he is no fool. He has taken his racial huckstering to a major league art form. You would think after the Tawana Brawley fiasco in the 80’s, Al would have been quietly retired.
Instead he came back from that career ender and remains on the far left national stage.
He was one of the first and most vocal of the activists to jump on the Trayvon Martin bandwagon.
Suddenly, like the deck chairs of the Titanic, he has disappeared.
From the Daily Caller:
On Easter Sunday the Rev. Al Sharpton, an MSNBC host, broke a major promise he made to those supporting him and the family of slain teenager Trayvon Martin: He didn’t show up in Sanford, Fla., to “occupy” the town.
On March 26 Sharpton vowed to “occupy” Sanford over Easter weekend to show support for Trayvon, the 17-year-old black teen who was shot by Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman on Feb. 26.
“We’re going to have a full blown occupation of Sanford with tents and everything over Easter weekend until [authorities] either arrest George Zimmerman, or arrest us for praying for his arrest,” Sharpton told ABC News about two weeks before Easter.
On Easter weekend, however, Sharpton is nowhere to be found in the central Florida town. Instead, according to his Twitter feed, he’s in Harlem.
“On my way to MSNBC to do the Melissa Harris Perry Show live at 11 15 AM EST,” Sharpton said in a tweet on Easter morning around 10:30 a.m. “Then I preach the Easter services at St. Lukes Baptist in Harlem.”
Sharpton also spent Saturday in Harlem, according to his Twitter feed. “I speak at the Saturday Action Rally at the House of Justice,” Sharpton tweeted around 7 a.m. on Saturday. “Tune in live from 9-11 AM EST at http://www.nationalactionnetwork.net.”
The “House of Justice” is located in Harlem.
Anyone wonder why Al is not in Florida? If I had the choice between New York or Florida, well that is the mother of all no brainers.
So why isn’t Al in Florida?
As I said, he is no fool. He sees where this is going. He is jumping ship now before he has another Tawana Brawley mess on his hands.
Anyone with half a brain sees how fast the Trayvon Martin mess is going south. The evidence is slowly coming out and it is looking pretty convincing that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense.
While the racists like the New Black Panther Party continue to circle this mess, some of the people with brains are realizing this story does not fit the narrative they want to push and realize this is going to back fire on them.
While George Zimmerman has other things to worry about right now, including the grand jury presentation which should come back as self defense and worrying about whether one of those racist nut jobs associated with the New Black Panther Party is going to come and try to administer street justice, he probably has a lawyer with a tally board already looking at who is going to be named in the lawsuits. NBC, CNN and ABC should already be lawyering up. For Al’s employer, NBC, the only question is going to be how big the check they will be writing George Zimmerman is going to be.
Al Sharpton maybe a huckster but he is no fool. He has been down this road before.
Soon both Al and Trayvon Martin will be swept down the memory hole.
ALL THAT BUNCH OF "BLACK PANTHERS" NEED TO VISIT ANY PRISON IN FLORIDA TO SEE WHO ARE THE MOST "VICIOUS AMONG WHITE, BLACK AND MEXICAN FELONS"...."THE ARYAN BROTHERHOOD" WILL KILL YOU, WIFE, KIDS, DOGS, CATSX, CHICKENS, HOGS, COWS AND BURN YOUR HOUSE.
They do not stay in prison but get out and work around small communities like Sanford....Duh.
We're waitin with bated breath. Bring it on deadbeats.
Must not be enough money in it or inciting a riot is more than he wants.
He'll be back--you can count on that!
Where is Barack Obama on this. He could stop it if he wanted to, but maybe this will be the riot he needs to declare martial law. OWS failed so now it's up to the black panthers.
Ah yes but let us not forget that obama had choice words for this matter. If I had a son! Well if he had a son it would look like him and not trayvon. Winged ears and lanky limbs and all back of the bus and stuff. Shore nuff and God forbid he meets a zimmerman in the dark and attempts to beat the snot out of him. One can only imagine what would become of mr.zimmerman had this been the case. Another unidentified body found somewhere in the back streets of chicago.
Another unsolved murder so reminiscent of days past when not one but two of these bodies were found but there was no outrage. No publicity and certainly there was no presidential comment. No agency sent to discover the killers and just like the gang related killings in chicago again no outrage!
I surely hope so, but I don't want Zimmerman hurt, unless a court proves him wrong, and then it would be in the hands of the court, not the New Black Panthers, to serve him justice.
Judson, did you delete a comment of mine on What will Obama due for Israel? Was it too strong?
No, I did not delete any comments recently.
"Much a do about nothing".................................................
For his own safety, Zimmerman should be in the "Witness Protection" Plan.
EVEN THOUGH G. ZIMMERMAN WILL HAVE TO HIDE HIS IDENTITY THE REST OF HIS LIFE, AT LEAST HE HAS A CASE AGAINST THESE YELLOW JOURNALISTS!
"Soon both Al and Trayvon Martin will be swept down the memory hole."
>>> Like the Duke Lacrosse team travesty.
