PHOENIX, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- The lamestream media told you:
These are direct quotes from The NY Post — which I was fortunate to see on a recent visit, but which journalists elsewhere lacked the guts to emulate.
Journalists everywhere else continue to give Al Sharpton, a hateful racist bigot, front-page coverage; it’s the equivalent of treating the KKK like a national treasure (shortened here for clarity and space):
“Sharpton is a public nuisance. He remains a cop hater to the core, a race man who cannot see past skin color and whose business model is based on using a charge of racism as a negotiating tactic. The corporations buying his silence with their “contributions” ought to be boycotted.
“He’s a tax scofflaw who refuses to pay his fair share, thus ripping off his fellow citizens, black and white.
“As The New York Times reported Tuesday, he faces $4.5 million in state and federal tax liens, both personally and through companies he controls. The amounts owed are growing and his shady use of non-profits to enrich himself would make him politically toxic if he were anyone else.
“That brings us to the heart of the problem. Despite Sharpton’s shameful conduct, he is a close confidant to the president and the mayor of New York.
“Imagine that — he stiffs the IRS and stirs the racial pot to boiling but still regularly gets invited to the White House to advise the president who promised to usher in a post-racial society.
“Sharpton was there for the announcement of Obama’s nominee to be the new attorney general, Loretta Lynch [The irony of her name is unavoidable -Alan]. That has to flash a chilling message to any honest prosecutor — Sharpton is above the law.
“And Sharpton brought protesters from Ferguson, Mo., to meet secretly with Obama this month, where the president urged them to stay the course, whatever that means.
“What’s repulsive is that Obama and de Blasio use a double standard to elevate Sharpton to a dangerous level. By conferring their personal approval of him, they magnify his power and turn a nuisance into a public menace. They and Sharpton are partially responsible for the violence that has already happened.
“There you have it. Agitators are using threats of violence to intimidate the courts. It’s low and dirty, but you expect that from Al Sharpton. The tragedy of our times is that the president of the United States is no better.”
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
For once, I cannot add to this report. Couldn’t have said it better myself. Michael Goodwin, author of The NY Post piece, deserves your thanks. [email protected]
