Consequently, many states have followed the example of the federal government by legislating laws against hate-motived crimes. Interestingly, hate speech does not automatically qualify as “hate crime” unless there are other mitigating circumstances.
Still, in the wake of the Zimmerman trial, the paragon of racial justice, Al Sharpton, said that he intended to use his National Action Network in organizing protests as a means of bringing a civil rights case against George Zimmerman. “It’s not over,” said Sharpton, “And we are going to make sure it’s not over; that’s why we’re calling people to … organize in your city. I don’t care if its 20 people, we want to show the nation that over 100 cities a week later is still demanding justice. We’re not having a fit, we having a movement.”
And, of course, following this statement, masked vandals went on a rampage in Oakland, California breaking out storefront windows and terrorizing residents at a Wal-Mart store. Blacks attacked an Oakland waiter with a hammer. Several blacks attacked a white man in Milwaukee, shouting, “This is for Trayvon Martin.” A journalist and a photographer working for KCAL-9 were the target of racial assaults in Los Angles while covering a protest in the Crenshaw District.
And this should take us back to hate crime and Al Sharpton. He has incited violence in several US cities, and I am stating, right here and now, that Al Sharpton is guilty of perpetuating hate crimes against innocent persons by inciting others to riot and do harm. Remember what he said: “It’s not over and we are going to make sure it’s not over…”
Now of course, we all know that Al Sharpton is a fraud. He is no more a Baptist minister than I am. He was “licensed and ordained” as a Pentecostal minister at the age of nine-years by another fraud, the so-called Bishop Frederick Douglas Washington. Who in the hell “ordains” a nine-year old kid? And people want to know why people no longer attend church services. Let us also not ignore the fact that Albert Charles Sharpton is as corrupt as his father, the senior version, who had an illegal sexual relationship with his own daughter … the only point being that filth begets filth.
Make no mistake about it: Al Sharpton is filth. Whether we are looking at the fabrications involving Tawana Brawley in 1987, or the fact that he has referred to white people as “homos,” inciting violence against New York Jews, and bigotry directed against Mitt Romney in 2007, he is filth. If we follow the advice of Martin Luther King, Jr., and judge Al Sharpton by the content of his character, then Al Sharpton is a cretin who should be locked up in a federal penitentiary for the criminally insane.
No one man has done more to destroy race relations in America than Al Sharpton. But destroying race relations is not a crime. If it were a crime, then we could arrest Barack Obama and Eric Holder, too. What is a crime is inciting people to riot, assault others, and destroy their property. What I want to know is why hasn’t Sharpton been arrested and charged with hate crime?
