President Trump responded to Al Sharpton this morning, and quite frankly he was too kind. He said Sharpton hates whites and cops, but the Rev Al’s hatred is much broader than that. During his lifetime of spewing hatred, Al Sharpton has been spewing hatred his entire life, and anyone defending him is defending racism, homophobia, misogyny, and Antisemitism
I have known Al for 25 years. Went to fights with him & Don King, always got along well. He “loved Trump!” He would ask me for favors often. Al is a con man, a troublemaker, always looking for a score. Just doing his thing. Must have intimidated Comcast/NBC. Hates Whites & Cops! https://t.co/ZwPZa0FWfN

Sharpton’s record of hate didn’t start with making the Eric Garner killing a black/white issue despite the fact the senior cop on the scene was both black and female. Nor did it start when Sharpton took the killing of a kid who tried to grab a policeman’s gun and then menacingly charged the cop in Ferguson Missouri a white/black issue. It didn’t even start with Sharpton promoting the “hands up don’t shoot” fraud even after it was proven to be a myth. He built his career on promoting that kind of hatred and divisiveness.
.@TheRevAl has spent his life fighting for what's right and working to improve our nation, even in the face of hate. It's shameful, yet unsurprising that Trump would continue to attack those who have done so much for our country.

People like Sen. Kamala Harris who are defending Sharpton do not know what they are talking about. Firstly I am reluctant to call him a Reverend. He is the only with that title that I know of who doesn’t believe in all ten of the Ten Commandments. Specifically, he continually breaks, “Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor,” and he breaks it publicly.
Al Sharpton endorsed his slander of former NY State AG Robert Abrams. He refused to meet Abrams during the Tawana Brawley hoax because meeting AG, who was Jewish, would be “like asking someone who watched someone killed in the gas chamber to sit down with Mr. Hitler.” Is this the voice of a preacher? Is it the voice of someone trying to unite the races? Well, Kamala Harris seems to believe so.
In 1987 Steven Pagones former Assistant District Attorney in Dutchess County was accused by Sharpton of raping Tawana Brawley. Not only was Pagones nowhere near Brawley that night, but also the entire rape story was a fraud.
But none of that matters to the people supporting Sharpton today. But it does matter to Todd Starnes.
Al Sharpton is no reverend. #ToddStarnesShow

After days of anti-Jewish rioting in Crown Heights, at the funeral of Gavin Cato in 1991, Al Sharpton gave a powerful eulogy inspiring hatred and Antisemitism:
“The world will tell us he was killed by accident. Yes, it was a social accident. … It’s an accident to allow an apartheid ambulance service in the middle of Crown Heights. … Talk about how Oppenheimer in South Africa sends diamonds straight to Tel Aviv and deals with the diamond merchants right here in Crown Heights. The issue is not anti-Semitism; the issue is apartheid. … All we want to say is what Jesus said: If you offend one of these little ones, you got to pay for it. No compromise, no meetings, no kaffe klatsch, no skinnin’ and grinnin’. Pay for your deeds.”
Al Sharpton never apologized or paid for his deeds.
The people in Crown heights, especially those injured in the violence, never had justice from Sharpton’s incitement. He didn’t start the pogrom, he only worked to make it worse. According to the sworn testimony of Efraim Lipkind, a former Hasidic resident of Crown Heights:
“Then we had a famous man, Al Sharpton, who came down, and he said Tuesday night, kill the Jews, two times. I heard him, and he started to lead a charge across the street to Utica. —“
Rep. Ted Lieu protected Sharpton:
Today is Monday. That means @realDonaldTrump is bullying another minority. Now he's attacking Al Sharpton.

Lieu must support what happened in the summer of 1991 when NYC Jews complained about the Antisemitism of Black College professor Leonard Jeffries. Sharpton called them race-baiters, adding, “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.”
Kristen Clarke, the Pres & Exec Dir., national Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, sent out a tweet supporting Sharpton.
Trump woke up this morning bent on attacking Black people.. new attacks levied on Rev. Al Sharpton and piling on to Elijah Cummings.

Does Ms. Clarke also endorse the murder of Angelina Marrero, Cynthia Martinez, Luz Ramos, Mayra Rentas, Olga Garcia, Garnette Ramautar, Kareem Brunner, the seven victims of the massacre at Freddy’s Fashion Mart? They are dead because a four-month-long campaign of hate by Al Sharpton that incited a man to firebomb the clothing store killing the seven innocents. What’s that? They didn’t endorse the murders? If she doesn’t support the killings why is she supporting Sharpton>
During the Kavanaugh hearings, the Democrats insisted that all women who claim to be victims are to be believed. But many of them are supporting Sharpton despite what he did during “Central Park Jogger” trial. The jogger was raped and beaten to within an inch of her life. Sharpton led rallies where he claimed her boyfriend raped the “jogger” and called the woman who was raped and beaten to within a hair of death a whore. Whether the men on trial were innocent or guilty didn’t matter to Sharpton, he promoted hatred via falsehood.
Sharpton’s supporters also endorse the racially charged words and lies he used to destroy the political career of David Dinkins, the first black mayor of NYC. Dinkins was angrily denounced by Sharpton using these words:
“David Dinkins, you wanna be the only ni**er on television, only ni**er in the newspaper, only ni**er that can talk. Don’t cover them, don’t talk to them, ’cause you got the only ni**er problem. ‘Cause you know if a black man stood up next to you, they would see you for the whore that you really are”
By the way, the asterisks were put in by me, Sharpton used the “n” word. Do those the people who are supporting Al Sharpton today use the “n” word.
Remember the controversy surrounding the Duke lacrosse team? They were falsely accused of rape. Al Sharpton declared that these ”rich white boys” had attacked a ”black girl,” and he warned that if arrests were not made immediately, there would be no peace. Eventually, the evidence proved she invented the story, and all charges against the defendants were dropped. The people who are supporting Sharpton must have endorsed his bogus charges against the Duke Lacross team.
The people who are supporting Al Sharpton can’t believe in everyone’s right to their own religion. They must endorse what the professional bigot said when Mitt Romney was running for President
“As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyways, so don’t worry about that; that’s a temporary situation.”
Does Kamala Harris believe General Colin Powell is George Bush’s house, Negro? That’s what Al Sharpton believes, he said.
Is Al Sharpton a racist? I supposed it depends on whether or not one is a cracker.
In 1994, Sharpton stood before a crowd at Kean College in New Jersey. “White folks was in the caves while we was building empires,” he said. “We built pyramids before Donald Trump even knew what architecture was…We taught philosophy and astrology [sic] and mathematics before Socrates and them Greek homos ever got around to it…Do some cracker come and tell you, ‘Well my mother and father blood go back to the Mayflower,’ you better hold your pocket. That ain’t nothing to be proud of, that means their forefathers was crooks.”
I wonder if Sharpton’s other supporters use the term punk faggot as Sharpton did?
Al Sharpton is a low-life bigoted, anti-white, anti-Semitic, misogynistic, racist homophobe. Anyone who condemns what Donald Trump said about Sharpton today must endorse Al Sharpton’s hatred of just about everyone.
Oh and about cops. President Trump was right about that, although he doesn’t call them cops, he calls them pigs
The Far left is mad because Trump said Al Sharpton hates whites & Cops.
Well here he is telling people to go OFF ( kill) Crackers and Pigs.
