That’s right — Rev. Rat Fink has been a snitch and a weasel all along, according to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun website, which has also debunked Sharpton’s feeble denials. Nevertheless, who should be the guest of honor at an event attended both by Holder and New York City’s hard-Lefist mayor, Bill de Blasio, aka Warren Wilhelm, Jr., with Barry himself on the way tomorrow. You guessed it:
Two days after stunning new revelations about his role as an FBI informant, the Rev. Al Sharpton proved Wednesday that he can still draw a crowd – and the praise of powerful politicians. Mayor de Blasio hailed the civil rights activist as a “blessing,” and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder spoke as well, as Sharpton opened a three-day convention of his National Action Network at a midtown hotel.
The White House said the new details about Sharpton’s cooperation with the FBI would not change President Obama’s plans to give the keynote speech at the gathering on Friday. “Rev. Sharpton and the National Action Network have made significant contributions to civil rights efforts, and the president looks forward to appearing at the conference,” spokesman Jay Carney said.
In their appearances, Neither de Blasio nor Holder mentioned Monday’s story on The Smoking Gun website which provided stunning new details of how Sharpton helped the feds secretly record mobsters in the 1980s. ”I am proud to stand with Rev Sharpton,” de Blasio said to thunderous applause. “Because to borrow a phrase from our youth: Reverend, you’re the real thing.”
The slogan of the National Action Network is “no justice, no peace.” It might be time for the Left to consider that this particular motto can cut both ways.
As I wrote in this space recently, it’s time to break out the RICO statute and break up the Democrats, for their own good and that of the nation. Our country needs an honest two-party system, not the current cozy racket shared by the donkeys and the establishment elephants. The next attorney general is going to have his hands full, which is why the Tea Party must gain control of the GOP, nominate a real reformer — and not a RINO squish or a family retread –and put an end to this farce. Not for all, perhaps, but at least once, just to show that they can.
Over to you, Andy McCarthy.
