Charge Sharpton with a Hate Crime or at least Bullying!

When does a righteous Civil Rights issue cross the line and become a hate crime, or at the very least bullying?

Well, when the “Reverend” Al Sharpton is involved, as soon as he opens his mouth.

For those who don’t remember how Sharpton became a Civil Rights “Leader”, let’s review his history.

In 1987, a 15 year old black girl names Tawana Brawley was seen by a neighbor climbing into a large green plastic trash bag. The neighbor called the police.

The girl, Tawana Brawley,l was discovered in the bag, clothes torn and partly burned, covered with feces, alive and pretty much unharmed.

The girl claimed a group of white men raped her repeatedly and did vile things to her like defecate on her. The words “KKK”, “NIGGER” and “BITCH” were written on her body in what appeared to be charcoal.

She said at least one of the men had a badge.

The FBI was called in because of the horrible nature of the “crime”.

But things just didn’t add up. The rape kit was negative. There was no evidence of sexual assault. Her claim of a several day abduction and being outside, exposed to the elements was not backed up by physical evidence. And although the girl had been missing for several days, her mother did not report it until the day she was found.

Brawley was seen after the supposed abduction at her apartment and at several parties. All of the items used to write on her body and burn and tear her clothing were found in her apartment. The feces was determined to have been from her neighbor’s dog – not humans. It was also determined that 15 year old Tawana had actually taken a bus trip to visit her former boyfriend in jail.

This was an obvious hoax, but Al Sharpton managed to stir up racial anger by adamantly claiming the girls’ story was true and the media was only too happy to keep the trouble going. He accused law enforcement of a cover-up. And even the governor – Mario Cuomo.

A Grand Jury determined that Brawley had inflicted the “damage” to herself and everyone Sharpton accused was exonerated. During the Sharpton led publicity stunt, two of his associates quit, claiming Sharpton knew the girl was lying. Other blacks called for Sharpton to shut up. America saw through this race-baiter.

Sharpton was sued and he lost. Brawley was sued and she lost.

Now let’s fast forward to the present Florida case involving George Zimmerman and Travon Martin.

Again, the facts are beginning to show a totally different story than Sharpton would have us believe. Just like the Tawana Brawley hoax.

First, NBC began fanning the racial flames by editing the 911 call to make it sound like Zimmerman was a racist. The NBC edit appeared to make it look like Zimmerman said:

This guy looks like he’s up to no good … he looks black

But what was really said was:

ZIMMERMAN:  This guy looks like he’s up to no good. Or he’s on drugs or something. It’s raining and he’s just walking around, looking about

911 OPERATOR: OK, and this guy — is he black, white or Hispanic?

ZIMMERMAN:  He looks black.

Quite a difference. NBC has apologized for the “mistake”.

Just like the Brawley hoax, Sharpton keeps going. Keeps fanning the racial flames.

Zimmerman said the man “looked” black. He didn’t really sound sure.

The media used an inflammatory “mug” shot of Zimmerman in an orange jail jumpsuit from an arrest 7 years ago. The charges in that case were dropped. And for Martin they decided to use a several year old photo of Trayvon as a child.

Martin was no little kid. He was around 6’3″ tall and Zimmerman is reportedly around 5’8″ or 5-9″.

Then the tape of Zimmerman was released and the media and Sharpton claimed the absence of injuries was the “smoking gun” and proved that Zimmerman was a racist killer. A murdered.

And then The Daily Caller enhanced the video and you can see damage to Zimmerman’s head consistent with his story.

And there is the fact that while trying to paint Zimmerman as a racist, we must overlook the fact that Zimmerman has blacks in his family, tutors black kids and a couple of years ago he demanded justice for a black man that was beaten by a white police officer’s son in his Florida community. And these are the same officers who are investigating this case. Hardly a condition that one would suspect would garner much sympathy – let alone the benefit of the doubt – from the Police.

And while Sharpton tries to make you think that the gated community in which Zimmerman lives is some upper middle class white fortress, you should know that less than 50% of the residents are white.

How odd that the thousands of black kids killed each year by other blacks somehow does not deserve Sharpton’s attention, yet a non-black killing a black is suddenly top drawer news for him.

That makes this a case of prejudice. And the damage to Zimmerman from Sharpton and his fellow race-baiters a hate crime and the worst form of bullying.

What happened is horrible. A young man died.

But if Brawley and Martin represent all that is left of racism in America, then it seems that the biggest problems we have with racists now are from people like Sharpton and others who are trying to benefit personally from this tragedy.

Any time Sharpton can get some face time leading a hate march, the facts are irrelevant to him. It is not about Trayvon Martin. It is all about Al Sharpton.

This is bullying at it’s worst and Sharpton should be charged with a Hate Crime for inciting violence and racial hatred out of ignorance.

    This does not give it a reason to harbor off of this situation, what you need to be looking at is all the audio if you're going to go that deep into it, what if you where travon martin screaming for help and no one would come out because they were frightened about getting hurt themselves, though al sharpton should have not continued with the racial part of this, he should have focused more on what happened to the 17 year old boy which is definitely unjustifiable.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
