Al Sharpton, MSNBC’s in-house bigot and hate-crime king, had his usual words of wisdom to offer after the Zimmerman verdict.
“I think that this is an atrocity. I think that it is probably one of the worst situations that I have seen.
What this jury has done is establish a precedent that when you are young and fit a certain profile, you can be committing no crime, just bringing some Skittles and ice tea home to your brother and be killed and someone can claim self-defense, having been exposed with all kinds of lies, uh, all kinds of inconsistencies.
We had to march to even get a trial and even at trial, when he’s exposed over and over again as a liar, he is acquitted.”
Sharpton should be quite familiar with this state of affairs from the Crown Heights Pogrom, which he led, back in 1991. Mobs incited by Al Sharpton attacked anyone who looked like an Orthodox Jew.
Anthony Graziosi, a 67-year-old Italian man with a white beard, whose only crime was looking like an Orthodox Jew was murdered. So was Yankel Rosenbaum, who actually was an Orthodox Jew.
While liberal White Privilege shouters insist that only black people get killed for how they look, these two men were killed by black people for looking like Jews.
Lemrick Nelson, Rosenbaum’s killer got away with it, despite stabbing Rosenbaum after shouting “Kill the Jew”. He was acquitted by a majority black jury, some of whose members then went out to party with the killer’s lawyer.
MSNBC has not only given a job to the man responsible but it has given him a forum to hypocritically pretend to care about justice.
