This is the latest from the Rev. Al Sharpton who is one of America’s most well known and respected “civil rights leaders” in the black community:
“As I watched neo-Nazis march in Charlottesville, VA a few weeks ago with torches in hand yelling “Jews will not replace us” while celebrating a general of the Confederate Army who had fought to overthrow the U.S. government in order to preserve the institution of slavery, I reflected on the fact that those who have raised the banner of anti-Semitism and racism are usually one in the same, or at least bedfellows. We are currently witnessing a rise in both forms of hate in the U.S.and in many other places around the world, and just like the past, it is going to take a unified coalition to defeat it all.
On Monday, Rabbi Jonah Dov Pesner, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, and Rabbi Steven Fox, joined Martin Luther King III and I as we led a massive demonstration in Washington, D.C. The “One Thousand Ministers March for Justice” brought together religious leaders from multiple faiths and people from all backgrounds to collectively fight for the soul of our nation. On the 54th anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic “March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom,” we gathered for four main principles: voting rights, health care, criminal justice reform and economic justice. All are currently under renewed threat in the United States. …”
White Americans who take their own side and organize to advance their own interests in the identity politics game are “hate groups.” Presumably, the blacks and Jews who have done the same thing for decades now are something else. They have “moral authority” because of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Dream of a colorblind society which they had discarded by the 1970s.
Al Sharpton recently proposed defunding the Jefferson Memorial and going after the Founding Fathers after finishing off Confederate monuments. Perhaps the anti-White Jewish-African-American alliance will succeed in renaming Washington, DC at some point?
Note: I don’t believe I have ever seen Rev. Al in a church. Does he have a congregation?
