I have received the below announcement to “community leaders” from Al Sharpton. In it, Sharpton announces that his race-baiting tour is coming to the Commonwealth of Virginia. He plans on teaching people how to “combat” new “restrictive” voting requirements such as Virginia voter ID, which was approved by his allies in Eric Holder’s Justice Department. One wonders how he plans to “combat” the law.
Sharpton probably won’t mention his role in the deaths of Angelina Marrero, Cynthia Martinez, Luz Ramos, Mayra Rentas, Olga Garcia, Garnette Ramautar and Kareem Brunner. His allies and friends (like Eric Holder) don’t like to think about the time Sharpton’s race-baiting preceded the fiery murder of these people at Freddie’s Fashion Mart. Fashion Mart?
Yes, for those of you who don’t know and don’t click the link, this says it all:
The Sharpton-led protests began in August and came to a head on the morning of Friday, December 8th when Roland James Smith, Jr., who had been part of the Sharpton’s protests, walked into Freddy’s Fashion Mart, pulled out a gun, ordered all the black customers to leave, spilled paint thinner on several bins of clothing and set them on fire.
Sharpton is a reprehensible race baiter who should never escape his past unless he publicly atones. That Eric Holder associates with Sharpton’s sort tells us even more than that racialist quote Holder carries around in his wallet.
So Sharpton will arrive in Richmond on October 9. Danny Finnegan at the Richmond Times will dispatch a reporter to cover Sharpton’s appearance and not a whiff of his crazy race inciting past will appear on the pages of the paper on October 10. The local media won’t make mention of Sharpton’s long history of racial demagoguery and will treat him like a respected figure instead of how they would rightfully treat the public appearance of a Kleagle.
