    Default Al Sharpton Arguably Now The Most Powerful Person in America

    Outside of the president, Al Sharpton might possibly be the most powerful man in America right now. And no, that isn’t an overstatement.

    Think about what the 60-year-old activist and MSNBC host has going for him right now:

    Power Indicator #1: Sharpton has been to the White House to advise President Barack Obama, his senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, or both. No big deal, right? Plenty of MSNBC hosts have visited over the past six years.

    Care to guess, according to the White House Visitor Log, just how many times Sharpton has visited since Mr. Obama took office? Five times? Nope. 15 times? Try again. 25 times? Getting warmer. He’s visited at least 35 times. Quite the feat considering Sharpton is an unelected official living about 250 miles away from DC.

    Do you think any other civilians have that kind of frequent access?

    Power Indicator #2: Nobody controls him. Need proof? Just look at all the protests happening Tuesday night around New York after his former BFF, Mayor Bill de Blasio, asked him to cease and desist until after the two slain Brooklyn officers were laid to rest later in the week. This isn’t a compliment, but Sharpton showed once again he doesn’t take orders from anyone.

    His approval rating among blacks stands at 69 percent (yes, Quinnipiac conducts polls on Sharpton despite him not receiving one vote to represent any district or state). And when city residents were asked in the same poll who their most important leader was, Sharpton finished first, beating even President Obama and longtime Rep. Charlie Rangel in the process.

    Talk about polarizing: Almost 80 percent of black people say he’s been a positive force for the city. Almost 60 percent of Democrats feel the same way. But 81 percent of Republicans say he’s been a negative force. How does Sharpton become the epicenter in every story involving race? Simple: He looks at those numbers and knows he can play one side against the other and puts himself in a position of power accordingly. Understand: The only contingent Sharpton cares about is that of the African-American community. Protecting his brand among blacks is the only thing that matters.

    Power Indicator #3: Sharpton has a national television platform for a full hour Monday through Friday on MSNBC. For Sharpton, it’s just a daily trip to the podium. Opposition? Dissent? You’re kidding, right? Sharpton is almost never challenged by his guests because they’re booked based on the premise of agreeing with the host on whatever topic is being discussed. And as stated here on a few occasions, echo chambers never make for compelling television, and the Nielsen numbers for Sharpton’s PoliticsNation especially reflect that sentiment.

    Despite being in the middle of many of the biggest stories of the year, the Rev’s return on investment is equal to whatever the ruble is trading at these days. On Monday, for example, on a day where his name was front and center again following the reaction to the execution of two police officers in Brooklyn, Sharpton’s program couldn’t generate even half the audience in the key demo of Wolf Blitzer on CNN, who finished a distant second to Fox’s Special Report (guest anchored by John Roberts that evening). Overall, Sharpton gets beat anywhere from 2-1 (CNN) to 3-1 and even 4-1 by Fox. So despite the spotlight he seems to generate outside of 30 Rock, he can’t seem bring that interest over to his program. And here’s why…

    From a critical perspective, Sharpton is as awkward to watch as anyone on television. He’s simply terrible in a host role despite more than three years of at-bats to improve. If you can find even one notable critic who believes otherwise, please send along that review.

    So if the ratings are bad and the delivery even worse, why and how does Sharpton still have a program on the air? Answer: Because Comcast and NBC — and this is just an educated guess — must be petrified to fire him (by, yes, the race card being turned against them). Remember, Sharpton gave his crucial blessing to the Comcast/NBC Universal merger a few years back. Not long after, he was magically given his own show at 6:00 p.m. on MSNBC. Reciprocity at its finest.

    Power Indicator #4: Unlike the rest of us, he’s excused from paying taxes. Per a November story in the ultra-right-wing New York Times, he owes $4.5 million (and growing) in current state and federal liens against him and his National Action Network. More on that:

    Mr. Sharpton and the National Action Network have repeatedly failed to pay travel agencies, hotels and landlords. He has leaned on the generosity of friends and sometimes even the organization, intermingling its finances with his own to cover his daughters’ private school tuition.

    Sounds pretty serious. So will he be prosecuted? No. Will he still have the president’s ear? The Rev knows he’s teflon on this given his friends at the top of the food chain in D.C., and willingly flaunts being above the law and even common decency.

    And nobody dares challenge him.

    The president notwithstanding, Sharpton appears to be the most powerful man in America right now. Just ask Amy Pascal at Sony if she agrees. As we see time and again, he can do and say whatever he wants, and even has a national megaphone on one cable network to spread his message. The White House might as well be a second office listed on Sharpton’s business card. Meanwhile, debts of all stripes and sizes simply go unpaid. Bill de Blasio wins with 72 percent of the vote, or 72 percent more than Sharpton received, but guess who really runs the show in the Big Apple?

    Regardless of whether you agree with Sharpton or not, he owns the kind of political power that no other unelected public figure in this country has seen possibly since Capone. And before you say it can’t last forever, keep in mind he is coming up on three controversial decades as a public figure.

    In other words, he ain’t going anywhere.

    Only in America.

    As good as Shapiro lays it out here, it is still just a taste of the trouble Sharpton has caused.

    AL SHARPTON’S HISTORY OF RACIAL EVILS


    by Ben Shapiro 23 Dec 2014


    The new movement to peg Al Sharpton for responsibility in the slaying of two New York Police Department officers on Saturday has roots in reality. The murderer, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, posted on Instagram about the murders in advance: “I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” he wrote. “They Take 1 Of Ours…Let’s Take 2 of Theirs #ShootThePolice #RIPErivGardner #RIPMikeBrown.”

    After years of portraying American police as brutally racist and evil, culminating in Sharpton’s leadership of the falsely-premised “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” and “I Can’t Breathe” movements surrounding the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, Sharpton certainly bears some culpability for the murders of the officers. He bears even more culpability for the reactions of those celebrating the murders in their aftermath; he, more than anyone else, helped forward the perception that officers treat the black community like “Nazis or Hamas” treat Jews, as Van Jones once told me.

    Sharpton has denounced the officers’ murders, of course. “We have stressed at every rally and march that anyone engaged in any violence is an enemy to the pursuit of justice for Eric Garner and Michael Brown,” Sharpton said in a statement released by his National Action Network. He then called a press conference to play audio of threats he received after the killings of the officers. Poor baby.

    Sharpton isn’t merely today’s premiere race-baiter. He has his own show on MSNBC; he’s welcome at the White House; he’s been called in by Sony as racial arbiter after racially-laced emails from Sony executives came to light.

    The murder of these two officers casts Sharpton in a bad light. But Sharpton always should have been perceived in a bad light. At least Sharpton has plausible deniability with regard to these shootings – he’s mouthed slogans about how not all cops are evil lately. In fact, these shootings are the latest entry in the Sharpton hall of shame:

    Tawana Brawley. In 1987, Sharpton, then fat and clad in a track suit, trotted out 15-year-old Tawana Brawley to make false accusations of rape. She claimed she had been kidnapped, raped, and then had racial slurs written on her body in excrement. Sharpton fingered prosecutor Steven Pagones in the crime. The entire rape had been fabricated; Sharpton, it turns out, may have known Brawley was lying all along. Pagones won a slander lawsuit against Sharpton. Sharpton never paid what he owed, instead leaving it to his supporters to do so. Pagones told TruthRevolt last year, “I view Al Sharpton as being nothing more than an opportunist and a race-baiter… what I hope the networks and advertisers would push for — would be for Sharpton to admit that he now knows that Steve Pagones and the other individuals he lied about had nothing to do with whatever happened to Brawley.”

    Crown Heights Riots. In 1991, after a Chasidic Jew accidentally killed a young black child in a car accident, Sharpton went to Crown Heights, where he spoke at the funeral for the child. There, he said that “diamond merchants” had “blood of innocent babies” on their hands. He also said, “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.” The Crown Heights riots led to the death of Yankel Rosenbaum, an Orthodox Jewish student. Rosenbaum’s brother told TruthRevolt, “He has never apologized, he has never offered any sincere remorse for the atrocious things he has done by way of terrible racist behavior and lies, for inciting racial events. Anybody who takes a look at that person and wants to spend advertising dollars on him should take a hard look at their moral stance in terms of their position in business, in commerce, and in the community.”

    Freddy’s Fashion Mart. In 1995, Freddy’s Fashion Mart raised rent on a black-owned music store. That was because Freddy’s Fashion Mart had its own rent raised by a black landlord in Harlem. But that didn’t stop Sharpton from blaming Freddy’s Fashion Mart, accusing them of racism. “We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business,” Sharpton said. Protesters yelled, “Burn down the Jew store.” One of the protesters then shot four employees of Freddy’s and set the store on fire. As Jeff Jacoby wrote in 2003, “If Sharpton were a white skinhead, he would be a political leper, spurned everywhere but the fringe.”

    Maligning White Non-Rapists. After the accusations of one Crystal Gail Mangum, a stripper who accused three Duke lacrosse players of raping her, turned out to be false, Sharpton showed up ready for battle. “I think that when you look at the racial atmosphere, when you look at the fact that there again were the allegations of racial statements, when you look at a lot of people feeling that they have been treated differently, where this girl has basically had a character charged in the media, there is a lot of racism that’s in the air,” he told Bill O’Reilly. Not only was Mangum lying, she was later convicted for murdering her boyfriend.

    Defending Black Rapists. In 2008, after ten men raped and sodomized a woman in front of her 12-year-old son, and forced the son to have sex with his own mother, four of those men were indicted. They were black. So Sharpton decided that racism was at work. “You cannot have one set of rules for acts that are wrong and horrific in Boca and another set in Dunbar Village,” Sharpton said, referring to the supposed discrepancy between justice in black areas and white areas. “You must have equal protection under the law.” All four defendants were found guilty.

    Trayvon Martin. After black teenager Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by Hispanic neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, Sharpton accused Zimmerman of racism – as well as the police force of Sanford, Florida. “We are tired of going to jail for nothing and others going home for something. Zimmerman should have been arrested that night… you cannot defend yourself against a pack of Skittles and iced tea. Don’t talk to us like we’re stupid! Don’t talk to us like we’re ignorant!” Sharpton yelled. He then added, “Trayvon could have been any one of our sons,” a line later infamously parroted by President Obama.

    Sharpton’s resume is long and nasty. The deaths of two police officers are merely the latest update.

    He's a racist pig that should be in prison for tax fraud.

    How he has any voice in our national debate is a disgrace.

    Edit: And shockingly, another noted anti-Semite that Barack Obama has close ties to. But remember, he isn't an anti-Semite.

    That would be akin to me hanging out with David Duke and saying "no way, I'm not a racist. He's a great mentor to me, but I just don't agree with him on that issue."

    Bullshit.

    Him having power is like being rich because you use your credit cards to pay for everything. He has no substance outside outside of the minority.

    Him being on MSNBC is telling.

    Yes he has access to Obama but that is because Obama requires him to placate an ignorant group of people. No different than a Conservative having to give an ear to somebody on the religious right. I imagine when Al leaves the White House, Obama is happy.

    He is like the Erin Andrews of politics.

    The Clinton's were the ones who first elevated Sharpton to his current status. They approached him back when Hillary ran for U.S. Senate. Since she was running in NY, she needed someone in the black community with influence.

    Just to clarify for you - I don't like Al Sharpton or admire him in any way.

    So that means that you're just trolling.
