“Kill the Jew”: Sharpton’s Zimmerman Verdict Hypocrisy

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.

    Sharpton has always been a race whore…..

  • garymrosen

    What an absolutely shameful disgrace that anyone considers Sharpton to be any kind of legitimate political or media spokesman. He should have been consigned to pariah status at least as long ago as the Tawana Brawley case.

    This is why Sharpie’s invocation of Antisemitism on behalf of Bloomberg was such hypocrisy…

    I noticed way up here in Vancouver, Canada, a long time ago, the utter depravity, Idiocy and blatant Evil saturating the “left”. Don’t go telling this old logger/tugboater that putting homosexuality INTO our schools and treating the subject as though there was something wrong with US, indoctrinating students into the IDIOCY of evolutionary dogma, while instructors guffaw at students godly belief, don’t tell me the Law of Unintended Consequences isn’t operating. Kids KNOW that if there is no GOD, no Ultimate right or wrong, then nothing REALLY matters. Killing, raping,stealing, worshiping the earth, none of it matters at all. And they would be correct, except there is obviously a God, who also loves us and knows each one of us, and cares very much for each one of us. We are not alone.

    Sharpie is an aging marxist, a very bitter black man, that just can’t wrap his mind around the fact that whites are not racist. Oh, there is no doubt a few creeps that hate blacks, however, they are few and marginalized, they are no where near the levers of power. There ARE blacks who are also extremely racist,(Panthers).that murder innocent whites almost every day,(where are you Sharpie), sometimes just because the cracker was walking by( sound familiar ). Is the old sin of slavery the thing that consumes you old man, or are you just a natural partner of Islam? You both seem to think killing white people is a God-given right. Satan is god to both of you easy-to manipulate twits.

    Justice is not revenge.

    The loathsome populist anti-Semitism mouthed by Sharpton is hardly unique to American blacks. Many persons have no idea how much latent anti-Semitism is larded into populism as such. See the zillion blogs I have written on this subject: http://clarespark.com/2012/09/29/index-to-blogs-on-antisemitism/. “Index to blogs on Antisemitism.” I particularly like ABC’s of Antisemitism here: http://clarespark.com/2010/11/14/the-abcs-of-antisemitism/.

    I might be wrong, but it was O’Reilly few years back at Fox News who gave Sharpton one of the first soap boxes to stand on and began a ‘mainstreaming’ process.

    • autdrew

      You are correct. I personally think it was OReillys penance for supposedly saying something “racially insensitive” & the “Reverend” went after him

  • Melinda Craig

    Unfortunately he is correct you kid might be shot in the face by a thug that just walk up to you one the street and shoot s babies how sad is that and he is also right about it because your kid could be beat up and rapped or killed in school for no reason or people in Jacksonville really have it bad. you could be sitting in you car minding your own business (Asian mother shot while sitting in traffic) yes al your kid could have a decent job in a convenience store or other place to earn a living and get shot by thugs looking for drug money and some crackers to kill.

  • Marsha Moore

    Sharpton made his name by trying to destroy four Police officers falsely claiming they rubbed chit on Tawana Brawley. BTW he NEVER apologized to the officers he tried to destroy.

  • enoughtisenough

    Sharpton and Jackson did not carry on Martin Luther King’s dream. They instead they profited from his death. Who really murdered MLK?

    Sharpton: The ultimate Hypocritical Bigot!

  • demellos

    I am convinced that this whole thing was originally blown up because his name was Zimmerman, and they assumed he was a Jew. Once blown up, they had to stay with it despite it being shown he was Hispanic. They had to turn him into a Whitey, a cracka.

  • erick vallely

    jews playing the victim again. by the way, zimmerman is half jewish

    Nelson served ten years in prison. It’s not enough, but it’s not quite “getting away with it.”
