Bill de Blasio Praises MSNBC Radical Behind Anti-Semitic Race Riot

It’s Al Sharpton. Of course.

In one of his first speeches as mayor-elect, Bill de Blasio on Saturday did what any liberal politician in the city would do before taking office — he trucked up to Harlem to kiss Al Sharpton’s ring.

“Every year Reverend Sharpton is becoming stronger as a leader, is reaching farther as a leader,” de Blasio fawned at Sharpton’s National Action Network meeting. “You never have to wonder if he will remember where he came from, and he’ll be the first one up to stand up for justice. I gotta tell you guys, he’s a blessing for all of us. Let’s thank Reverend Sharpton.”

The event at times seemed like a leftist lovefest with de Blasio, Councilwoman Letitia James and incoming Brooklyn DA Ken Thompson all heaping praise on Sharpton. James, who’ll replace de Blasio as the city’s public advocate next year — chanted “No justice, no peace” at one point.

Sharpton — who was expected to back Bill Thompson, the only African-American candidate in the Democratic field for mayor — eventually threw his considerable weight behind de Blasio, helping him secure 42 percent of the city’s black vote in the primary.

“It’s one thing to win an election, it’s another thing to achieve an agenda,” de Blasio said Saturday. “We are going to get on with a very — not only progressive — but aggressive agenda. And it will work if you help us achieve it.”

The Jews of Crown Heights, who were targeted by Sharpton in the Crown Heights Pogrom appeared to have learned their lesson after voting for Dinkins and as you can see in this map, their part of Crown Heights is a small island of Lhota red in a sea of De Blasio blue.

To see just how isolated the Chassidic neighborhood is, let’s pull back a little

And a little more…

That’s life in Crown Heights, surrounded by some of the worst neighborhoods in Brooklyn, with little access to anything resembling safe spaces except down the Eastern Parkway corridor (once one of the poshest areas in Brooklyn that was a counterpart to Manhattan’s Central Park) over to Prospect Park and then down off to Park Slope, home of Bill de Blasio.

Unlike Williamsburg, Crown Heights did the right thing. If anything happens to them, they’re victims. The same can’t be said of any De Blasio voters who chose their fate at the hands of Al Sharpton’s murderous thugs.

    sounds like de Blasio was kissing more than just Al Sharptons’s ring.

      He’s probably lucky Sharpton didn’t take a sharp turn.

    This is really horrible. Warren Wilhelm, Jr. is really the worst of all worlds. Not only is he an unrepentant Communist, but his friends and allies are all radical leftists who are racists and anti-Semites. It is particularly sad how Sharpton successfully convinced the black community to overwhelmingly vote for the radical Wilhelm over the more moderate Bill Thompson in the primary election. Wilhelm’s landslide electoral victory two weeks ago shows that the Freedom Center (and other conservative organizations) have a lot of work to do regarding improving lives of poor and minority communities. We have to interact with poor and minority communities a lot more in order to improve their quality of life and to defeat the radical left and its monopolistic agenda, not only in New York City, but in many other large American cities. We need to remind people, particularly the poor and minorities that the left has not improved their lives (and doesn’t intend to) and only uses them in order to exploit them and to get their votes. Besides interacting with the poor and minority communities, we should also convince New Yorkers, regardless of characteristics, to engage in non-cooperation with the incoming Wilhelm administration in City Hall until it is time to vote him out of office. It will be no easy task, but we can succeed in saving New York City from Wilhelm next mayoral election. We can and must be victorious in the world.

      i dont think Al Sharpton has huge weight in the black community.

        He’s a half Sharpton of his former self.

    The Jewish People are at risk living in that area, they better move to a safer place before Sharpton arranges for another revenge riot to invade their neighborhoods.

    When this country was founded, it wasn’t a democracy, it was a republic, and the vote was restricted to property owners—in other words, those who paid taxes and had a real stake in the society. Now we take for
    granted that every two-footed mammalian should have the right to vote,
    and yet that’s at the root of all of America’s problems. The reason is
    simple: too many people, in one way or another, want money from the public treasury and that’s how we end up with Warren Wilhelm and Barry Hussein in charge. For the sake of survival, let’s quit being a dumb-ocracy and go back to
    being a republic.
