Sharpton Targets the Jefferson Memorial

(Matthew Vadum, Bombthrowers.com) Racial arsonist Al Sharpton is demanding the federal government shut down the historic Jefferson Memorial in the nation’s capital because the long-dead president honored by the monument owned slaves.

Thomas Jefferson, America’s third president, the man who wrote the justly revered Declaration of Independence, is also the man who penned this noble sentence: “I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” Perhaps he was thinking of future Al Sharptons when he wrote it.

Boiled down, this is a case where one of the most important, heroic, inspirational, intellectually robust, accomplished, and beloved figures in American history is under assault by one of the most repulsive, cowardly, sociopathic, intellectually deficient, unaccomplished, and despised figures in American history.

It was President John F. Kennedy who said at a White House dinner honoring a cohort of Nobel Prize winners from across the Western hemisphere:

I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.

“Someone once said that Thomas Jefferson was a gentleman of 32 who could calculate an eclipse, survey an estate, tie an artery, plan an edifice, try a cause, break a horse, and dance the minuet,” Kennedy said April 29, 1962.

No one has ever said anything similar about the dullard Sharpton, a vicious left-wing community organizer who, through his hate-filled racist and anti-Semitic rants, has gotten people killed.

That anyone would care what a racial-hoax-generating charlatan thinks of Jefferson’s legacy is a revealing and sad commentary on the profound damage that eight long years of Barack Obama’s racial agitations inflicted on America. Sharpton himself is a living example of this ugliness and depravity; recall that President Obama made the vile so-called community leader a trusted confidant and brought his friends, the pro-cop-killer leaders of Black Lives Matter, to the White House as honored guests.

Black Lives Matter is cheerleading the destruction of the republic. In light of recent events, Black Lives Matter Chicago is effectively demanding the repeal of the First Amendment. “After WWII, Germany outlawed the Nazis, their symbols, salutes & their flags. All confederate flags & statue, & groups should be illegal,” the group tweeted.

Minutes later it added, “The fact that the Confederate flag & statues permeate the south is evidence that white supremacy was never overthrown in the United States.”

Except maybe for the abolition of slavery, Jim Crow, and the advent of civil rights laws. Oops.

But this desire to settle scores by shutting down the Jefferson Memorial is part of the Maoist-style cultural revolution unleashed by the Left in the Obama era and amplified exponentially in the Trump era. Every day or so there is a new fake, race-related outrage amplified by the dishonest mainstream media and cheered on by the resurgent left-wing fascist movement known as antifa, which has been embraced in recent days by the so-called conservatives at National Review and Weekly Standard, as well as by Mitt Romney, John McCain, and Marco Rubio. Tearing down statues has suddenly become fashionable and plenty of establishment Republicans and conservatives are apparently fine with the mayhem.

They are aligning themselves with people like Al Sharpton who told CBS host Charlie Rose: “When you look at the fact that public monuments are supported by public funds you’re asking me to subsidize the insult of my family.”

“I would repeat that the public should not be paying to uphold somebody who has had that kind of background,” Sharpton said. “You have private museums, you have other things that you may want to do there.”

Jefferson “had slaves and children with his slaves,” he continued. “And it does matter.”

Well, it doesn’t matter as much as Sharpton suggests and the claim Jefferson fathered children by a female slave or slaves may not even be true. The story started circulating in the form of a political attack on Jefferson. DNA testing in recent years has revealed that Jefferson, or any of two dozen of his male relatives, may have fathered the children of Sally Hemings, a slave he owned.

Nor should the fact that someone in the past owned slaves when it was lawful and socially acceptable necessarily invalidate all of the person’s accomplishments. Slavery, which everyone today – except for parts of the Muslim world and perhaps a handful of spots elsewhere – acknowledges is a horrible, inhumane institution, used to be a well-accepted fact of life essentially everywhere in the world. At the time, slaves were property, after all; owners could more or less do what they wanted with them, no matter what we think of the institution today.

This does not excuse what we now consider to be bad behavior from the past but it does place it in its proper context. Jefferson, whether he turned a single slave he owned into a concubine, helped to lay the foundation for its eventual abolition in the United States. Lamenting the scourge of slavery, Jefferson famously wrote, “I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just[.]”

When the Thirteen Colonies decided to break away from the British Empire, their leaders believed the new nation had to be as large and powerful as possible to survive, even if that meant allowing slavery in some of the new states. The Framers of the Constitution were largely opposed, and even embarrassed by slavery, which helps to explain why the Constitution forbade the importation of slaves after 1808 and did not even mention slaves or slavery. The compromise that allowed slaves to count as three-fifths of a person for the purpose of congressional apportionment wasn’t intended as an insult to the enslaved blacks, as Sharpton and other leftist demagogues routinely assert. It was inserted in the document to limit the voting power of the slave states in the hope that slavery could one day be abolished, or at least limited.

“One cannot question the genuineness of Jefferson’s liberal dreams,” historian David Brion Davis has written. “He was one of the first statesmen in any part of the world to advocate concrete measures for restricting and eradicating Negro slavery.”

So Jefferson embodies the contradictions of the American founding itself. When we condemn him, we condemn this great experiment in self-government we call the United States of America.

We can still respect and admire Jefferson even if he slept with a slave in his household, an allegation that has not been proven.

Something that Sharpton fails to grasp, or may be choosing to ignore, is that applying the ideas or moral standards of today to a bygone age is a very dangerous game that some call presentism. It is a recipe for disaster and it reflects the Whig view of history, a laughable school of thought that holds that progress toward enlightenment and other good things is constant and inevitable. Another way of putting is, things have never been better than they are today and each day things get better. It is not easily reconciled with the onset of the Dark Ages that followed the collapse of the violent but civilizing Roman Empire.

(One of the best explications of the icon-smashing, anti-Jefferson position is a piece, “Thomas Jefferson: Radical and Racist,” penned by Irish writer Conor Cruise O’Brien in 1996. Whether Sharpton has, or even could, read it, is unclear.)

And if the statue of Jefferson in his memorial is toppled as Sharpton demands, what happens next?

The U.S. Capitol and the White House were built with slave labor. By Sharpton’s logic, they too must be torn down.

If the same principle is applied consistently, everything associated with slave-owning presidents will have to come down.

A lot of pages will have to be ripped out of American history textbooks, faces painted out of historic works of art, and statues melted down or pulverized. The creators of PhotoShop will make a mint.

A quarter of the nation’s presidents will suddenly become unpersons.

Twelve (or 13 if you count James Buchanan – see below) of the nation’s 45 presidents owned slaves, and eight of them owned slaves while president. (Actually, there have only been 44 individuals who served as president – Grover Cleveland, a Democrat, served two nonconsecutive terms.)

Those who owned slaves while president were George Washington, Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, John Tyler, James K. Polk, and Zachary Taylor. Those who owned slaves but not while serving as president are Martin Van Buren, William Henry Harrison, Andrew Johnson, and Ulysses S. Grant.

James Buchanan is a special case. In his home state of Pennsylvania, slavery was illegal. It could be said that he was not a slave owner de jure but was one de facto. While thinking about running for higher office, it donned on him that his sister’s ownership of two slaves in the then-slave state of Virginia could hurt him politically so he purchased them and made them indentured servants, bound to him for a fixed period of time. Historians Gary B. Nash and Jean R. Soderlund say many free blacks of the era lived in a sort of “twilight zone between slavery and freedom” in the Keystone State.

Tearing down statues of presidents that modern-day Americans may not even have heard of – thanks to the union-dominated public education system – benefits no one except maybe for demolition companies, the occasional real estate developer, and direct-mail firms servicing Democrats.

No good can come of it.

    Talk about a racist, hate filled loud mouth, this man has made a living out of it. He has made millions spewing his racist rhetoric for well over 30 years. He has owed the government millions in taxes that his racist buddy osluma pardoned. This miscarriage of justice should be reversed and he should be sitting in a cell like any other citizen would be. And yet we have to listen to his diversive hate filled mouth. He made his millions on the backs of black people and yet has done nothing for them. He has the nerve to call himself a Reverend, most men of the cloth I know help the people that they are in contact with. He helps himself and goes along with the Democrats agenda to keep the black people oppressed.

          • Frank Budz

            I fully understand, I feel the same way when I turn on the Lame Stream Media and their lying stories. But I also know that they are not fooling anyone but themselves. They actually think that they are swaying the people to their side, how deluded is that.

          • Jesusprotectus

            Did you read the article I posted? I was floored at the arrogant stupidity, and then I read this one. I get very upset, because I have never been racist, in fact, I always felt slavery has been a scourge in this country. I always thought had I been alive at that time, I would have been an abolitionist. With the black reparation committee demanding whites hand over the fruits of their labor, makes me sick. They weren’t slaves, we weren’t owners. They have had reparation of sorts…affirmative action…and this policy was discriminatory to poor whites. As a result of AA,many blacks became successful. The founders were not perfect, POTUS Trump is not perfect….but America and her constitutional republic was and is worth protecting, the good, the bad, the ugly…from her infancy to our present strifes.

          • Frank Budz

            Slavery was a the way the world operated before this great nation was founded. It should come as no surprise. The British, Native Indians, African tribes used them as currency and sold slaves to any and all. This brewhaha is getting blown out of proportion by the liars in the Media that want nothing more than to destroy this country. We should never let so few dictate to so many. It’s time to take back our country.

          • Jerry Kimbro

            The slaves were sold to slave owners by BLACK Africans.

          • Frank Budz

            So in other words, nothings changed. Mr. Sharpton is the newer version of the black slave owner. Outwardly not selling them but still controlling them with his vile rhetoric and hate preaching.

          • Dan Crowell

            What you people don’t realize is how many Black Slave holders there were…..learn your history. Blacks owned Blacks.

          • reborn

            If you research you will find that 28% of free blacks owned slaves in America. Some of them owning as many as 150 slaves or more.

          • Bandit

            One of the first slave owners in this country was Anthony Johnson (a black man) he not only had black slaves but he also had white slaves as well, while doing my family history I found that one of my ancestors was a slave to Anthony Johnson, my ancestor was a white man from Germany. These people that keep screaming slave this and slave that know ABSOLUTELY nothing about those times. There is NOT one person today that is a slave and still no one today that ever owns a slave.

          • Jerry Kimbro

            Thanks for the information.

          • Bandit

            No problem, I found out while doing my family history, it is incumbent on ALL of us to learn about our history and our family history as well.

          • Jesusprotectus

            I want law and order back. I want anyone and everyone to freely express themselves in a legal fashion. You are correct….a few UNELECTED people should not and cannot decide how our society functions….that’s why we vote. We need strong leadership to denounce this bullying, and preserve our Constitution and Bill of Rights. No to anarchy.

          • satcatchet

            But we have a relentless suppy of propaganda amed at us, the descent side of society, that we must refute wisely. Hillary R. Clinton just released her propaganda rhetoric on a cd book that she herself narrates. How arrogant. Where is Roger Stone?

            Lol I heard her excerpts. She walked over in front of POTUS Trump, but yet says he was stalking her, lol. What is she smoking?

          • Rick Anderson

            Frank while your talking about slaves lets not forget the buying and selling of white indentured servants and laborers revolutionary war. Yes they were white slaves.

          • Jaymes Carson

            Spot on Frank, and trying to remover statues/the past, doesn’t remind anyone of what we should have left behind and remember not to go there again right….but the Corrupt People always have an agenda don’t they…..

          • satcatchet

            I’m a Native American of the Choctaw Tribe and partly feel your sorrow. We have been treated as scum but do we tare down the oppressors statues, (Andrew Jackson) no. We are above that and we pulled ourselves up and we are a strong Nation. We provide for our needy, help the elderly, assist the agriculture in the Choctaw Nation, we have Federal government contracts, and recreational facilities for everyone, everyone. These people wanting to cause harm & distruction don’t want peace. They are dead beat criminals looking for attention and the media is slanted towards them and fan the flames of hate. We love all people that do us no harm. We have an unstung bow.

          • carrie

            I am so happy to see someone from the Native Americans comment lord knows if anyone should have anger it should be the American Indians but like your ancestors before you peace was tryed first then you protected your people you live with dignity to this day and never complain after your ancestors were stripped of thier land and thier homes. I have a box of Rose Rocks that a friend sent me from Oklahoma and when ever i look at them the first thing that comes to my mind is the heart ache and indignitys suffered by the Native Americans Bless you for your comment i wish we would hear from more of your people it would be refreshing to see how things are viewed by a nuetral source

          • satcatchet

            Thank you Carrie. We are called The Five Civilized Tribes because we would wish the same peace we show to other people unlike other groups in this country. We believe in the Ten Commandments because they are from God. God is good.

            Excellent comment, satcatchet, and a fine icon. I am not familiar with the Choctaw tribe, but I have seen ceremonies of various pueblos in New Mexico and the incredible Katsina ceremonies of the Hopi. They are astonishing, gripping. They make one “choke up.” God Bless.

          • satcatchet

            New Mexico is a wonderfull state and full of American Native history. Taos is in the Enchanted Circle for a good reason along with other cities. It is a great place to meditate the indigenous people’s history. If you make it to North Carolina be sure to visit Cherokee, North Carolina in the Great Smokey Mountains, it too is fascinating.

          • Jesusprotectus

            The US Government was awful toward your culture and your people. I am sorry for the abuse and sacrifices your people were forced to endure. I always respected native Americans,…you are a strong and proud people. God bless and protect you and yours.

          • satcatchet

            Thank you sir. Although on a grander scale we all are now experiencing the same frame of mind from the NWO. Get you house in order because God won’t wait for ya when He calls us, it will be too late.

          • Jesusprotectus

            You are welcome. I am ready when Jesus returns. And I believe we won’t be waiting for too long. Too much evil, all around us, and yes, the NWO is front and center on the stage. Now that evil is indoctrinating children in their sick agenda, it won’t be long. God does not like evil corrupting innocent children.

        • Roadrunner 46

          Maybe not, but it sure makes most of us feel better. Why should these thugs be allowed to defame everyone and not face retaliation. Even God blew up Sodom and Gomorrah.

          • Frank Budz

            Yes, but that was the old way, Jesus changed all that, at least that was what I was taught.

          • satcatchet

            Jesus is the bridge to salvation. We do not do animal sacrifices in order to have God forgive us of our sins, Christ is our sacrificial lamb. He died on the cross for our sins. Now it is up to us to make a decision who we want to follow, Good or Evil, your choice. Satan is showing us all his hand now through these people that want to kill, steal, and destroy. That is Satan’ plan for the lost.

          • Forrest K. Wright

          • satcatchet

            Well yes God destroyed the cities because they were an abomination of His Creation. Al Sharpton has not crossed that threashold yet but he will have to explane to God how he helped all mankind to better themselves.

          • Bruce Jenkins

            He needs to explain how he incited the murders of innocent police officers, probably to get out of paying taxes and get more bling.

        • DeadToad

          Remember our Lord Jesus Christ was crucified on a cross. This is an outcome I’d like to avoid for myself and family. Name calling Maybe wrong but to do nothing is far worse. We must defend ourselves and our Lord Christ teachings or everything will be lost.

        • Lonestarbybirth

          Yeah , and turning the other cheek to these pathetic bunch of losers just gets the piss slapped out of you again , if they try to remove the Jefferson memorial it’s time for ” we the people ” to show them the err of their ways !!!

          • satcatchet

            Not really. You go into this fight so be prepaird to defend yourself. You turn that cheek as you clear the swing and deck him in thr nuts. They don’t play fare and neither should we.

        • Jimbo

          Two wrongs don’t make a right, but sometimes “three do.” I believe the latter would apply to Sharpton.

      • Mad Scientist

        Kindly refrain from this kind of racist rhetoric. All you are doing is handing ammunition to our opponents on the left.

        • Jesusprotectus

          It was name calling, not racism. Blm act like animals…..the kkk are animals, too.

            if they knew where they were going to end-up at I think some of them would seek the truth which is in JESUS CHRIST only , no one else can save us . besides we don’t have any sure thing that we will be here to marrow .

          • Sylvia Avila

            Right, but I really believe they do not care! these people I believe are really possessed by Evil! Little hope for them, they seem not to care for anything but Hate, Evil and violence! God Help us all! God bless!

      He is an ignorant and uninformed racist blowhard. He looks for any opportunity that will potentially posture himself to the highest bidding panderer. A classic race baiter that has the minimal IQ to goebalong with it. Remember Tawana Brawley Al?

      • Frank Budz

        I would like to know exactly where his money comes from. Obviously it’s not the people living in the ghettos, so who would pay this loudmouth. The Democrats are the only race baiting, hate spewing party I know of. It’s amazing how long they have been perfecting their craft. Sharpton surely knows the history of his party and has become a slave to their rhetoric, all for the almighty dollar.

        • richjack4

          welfare, numbers, who knows! He has always been a pain to people live in within the tri-state area. It is funny though, with all the dysfunction within the black culture you only see his appearance as with the NAACP for a ridiculous issues such as this or Collin Kopernik. Never do they deal with issues of substance, just high visibility and a forum to preach how bad whites are!

    • bluewarrior13

      I find Sharpton offensive and I want him put in jail.

  • Eileen Schenck

    If we could truly reconstruct the mind set of Jefferson – particularly at the time he wrote the Declaration of Independence, and if the musical 1776 reflects that mind-set…Jefferson wanted
    Freedom for all, not just whites. All men are created equal. But the argument went on, the Southern sites would not sign the Declaration if not altered to permit them to continue slave-holding. As to Sally Hemings, that is guess-work, yet I believe they may have been in love…trapped by the mores of the day. She was half sister to his wife….Sally probably was quadroon, born of a mulatto mother and her resemblance to her half sister, Jefferson’s wife may have attracted him to her. Heard of one claim, don’t know that it is true, that she…every day, walked to his grave site. If not a romantic tale
    then it would seem she truly loved him. Trapped in their time frame.

    • Bill kennedy

      Eileen, its a little more complicated than that. When the Declaration of Independence was signed slavery was still legal in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Pa. didn’t officially end slavery until, I believe, 1780 and then it was gradual emancipation with freedom for the children of slaves when they reached their late twenties. If you were a slave in Pa. in 1780 you remained a slave and there were several hundred legal slaves in Pa. 50 years after the signing of the DOI. The same was true for the other two states.

      Four slave states remained in the Union. Slavery was legal in Washington DC in 1861. West Virginia joined the Union in 1863 under conditions that can’t be considered anything other than a slave state.

      Read “disowning Slavery” by Joanne Pope Melish. There’s a reason more than one-half of all free blacks lived in the South when the war began.

      Respectfully, we cannot prevail in this debate by simply claiming it was all the fault of the South as many like Mark Levin do.There is just too much information available as a rebuttal for that. If we can’t force the debate into the context and time frame in which slavery was occurring in the US we will lose. You can bet the other side understands this very well. Sharpton isn’t the only one now calling for tributes to men that died long before the Civil War be destroyed, displaced and denounced. The next step will be the Constitution itself because we have already allowed the men who created the document to be discredited.

      Its almost impossible to find a country with a genesis prior to 1800 that wasn’t deeply invested in slavery. The slave capital of the hemisphere was Brazil. Nobody was even close. Thousands of Yaqui were worked to death on Mexican plantations between 1900 and 1915. There’s a great deal more and the the boiler plate “moral relevance” argument is goofy. Its what was happening.

      Evaluating men and events by two different standards 150 years apart is ahistorical and willfully dishonest but that is what is happening.

      Cordially

  • Sharpton can leave the country. His claim is totally false. It was Jefferson that got the Bill of Rights written and passed. Where would he be without it?

    • Jesusprotectus

      Who cares if all of the founders had slaves? They founded this country…and if the black tribes in Africa hadn’t sold their enemy tribes into slavery, they might not be here. I agree with every black….I am very sorry they were enslaved and brought to this great country…..now they are better off for it, and we are having to deal with their tribal animalistic tendencies! Thanks to the African tribes….look how they are suffering in Africa now. Even when 1st generation slaves were offered to be taken back to the homeland Africa…they didn’t want to go. Ever since obama, the tribalism has taken off and been coddled by the left. For 8 years whites, and conservatives in particular, have been attacked and villified, and condoned by obama. Now we have President Trump……and whites no longer have to worry about our free speech….now we can finally say….ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Pres. Trump needs to get these blacks (with too much time on their hands) a job…off welfare! And end their obamaphones……I don’t want to pay for their ‘phones’ .

      • Roadrunner 46

        No one has mentioned yet that although slave owners, both Washington and Jefferson freed their slaves and made them freemen

        • Jesusprotectus

          This is not about slavery…it’s about creating civil unrest amd anarchy by the globalists.
          They know what buttons to push.

      • Jesusprotectus,

        That’s why we have God on our side in all this. Virginia had very strict laws on slavery. People like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson inherited slaves add had to abide by the colonial laws. When Jefferson was in Europe he paid his “slaves” a salary. He could not do that in Virginia. I am not making excuses for them as the laws were what they were. And certainly, not all slaves were treated equally. I make no excuse for what was done.

        However, that is not the whole story.

        1. Slavery did exist in northern colonies but was crushed before the Civil War. 2. Slaves arrived in northern cites such as New York and Boston because that is where the slaves we sold off to bidders. 3. Slaves were initially used for tobacco farming, not cotton farming. 4. New inventions such as the cotton gins and railroad lines were reducing some need for slaves. The whole slave business was on the way to extinction. 5. the northern states were worried about expansion of southern states into the southwest. 6. You can always count on business and commerce to advance, soon to make slavery outdated.
        I have to agree that the black race is more prone to violence based on what I see in Africa and in the far east. But I think that can be overcome. The bottom line is that we cannot just sell them a false bunch of promises and not deliver on them. They are rebelling against that and they should. We have to take steps to improve their job opportunities especially and treat them a normal humans. I have zero tolerance for treating anyone any different than people of any race or color. I have had and still have, a good relationship with all races. I do not care about color at all. In fact, I Iive in a high rise where African refugees have been moved into. There are three apartments of them on my floor. I get along fine with them. They speak little English yet but I do connect with them as a friend. All goes well.

    FORGIVE AL (THE DOO) SHARPTON!
    All those chemicals he puts on his head to relax the KINK on his head
    and give him White Boy Looking Hair is sipping into his little brain and further deteriorating it!

    He forgets that Thomas Jefferson treated his slave, lover better than his wife!
    They had a gang of children!
    He took her to Europe and she could have walked away from him because slavery was outlawed there!
    She left with her love, Thomas Jefferson, and had more children!

    DOO! Stop your rambling and let your FRO come out!
    WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOUR FRO?

  • Louie Rey

    One of the great mysteries in life is how is it that Sharpton’s still alive? You’d think that the epitome of racism and a racial arsonist would have met an untimely (well, for some it would be untimely) death by now. He’s manipulated the powers that be into making HIM a kingmaker. How insane is that? As soon as the Tawana Brawley incident was proven to be a hoax he should have been co9mpletely shunned by the media. Instead, these lamebrains hang on his every word and are scared to death of him if they were to go against him. Hey, you reap what you sow.

    • SNUFFER

      I WONDER WHAT A STATUE OF JAMES EARL RAY WOULD DO ERECTED IN MISS. THE SOUTH WOULD BURN TO THE GROUND. THEY HAVE NEVER BEEN NOTED FOR BEING BRAIN SURGEONS EXCEPT ONE AND THAT’S BEN CARSON- WHICH I DO ADMIRE FOR HIS INTELLIGENCE AND FIGHTING FOR TRUMP. AND FOR A LOT OF SOUTHERNERS HE WAS A HERO IN THEIR EYES. THE SOUTH IS A HARD PLACE TO CHANGE. MAYBE THE NORTH SHOULD TAKE LESSONS FORM THE SOUTH. OOPS, IT ALMOST LIGHT GOTA GOTA GO PRODUCE SOME “RED MIST” IN THE MORNING. I ALWAYS WAIT UNTIL I GET 50 BEFORE I SCORE THEM ON MY LITTLE “RED MIST” BOOK. GOT TO LOAD THE HV.

    Informant: Obama’s Connection to Radical Revolution
    August 22, 2017 (TRUNEWS.com)

    Do the current Marxist attacks on statues and historical sites have their roots in the radical revolutionaries from the 60s? Today on Trunews, Rick Wiles addresses the current situation of rising escalation with North Korea, before introducing Larry Grathwohl. This FBI informant infiltrated the notorious Weather Underground, and exposed the principal troublemakers Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohn. Both were close friends and confidants of Barack Hussein Obama, who is running the playbook for a Communist revolt in America

  • Lizard

    Die you old bastarrrd Not so sharp

  • Carl F. Hall

    Al Sharpton talking about supporting the Jefferson Memorial. He hasn’t paid taxes in years. It’s been reported that he owes 11 Million dollars in back taxes. If he were going to be forced to pay his taxes he would quickly shut up about the Memorials.

    • Roadrunner 46

      How about having him move in with pelosi and waters–see if they change their minds about blacks

  • Alan404

    How about removing Sharpton. Do not patronize his sponsors and so notify them

  • Lizard

    Time take down MLK ave in seattle ..and do not put up Racist Obama statue

    • Fred_K

      Remove all MLK statues, and return the all of the streets, in all of the cities, that have his name to their original name, or number.
      Even better, make it illegal to name any street, building after anyone living or dead, and make all statues illegal. That would eliminate the amount of money required to maintain them, and make being a politician less desirable, because they would not have the incentive to be remembered as important in the future.

  • Fred_K

    I target Al Sharptongue for removal. He is one of the absolute worst racists on the planet. He needs to be banned from public view. He should be cast in concrete, and the casting should be put on the bottom of a non-descript river.

  • Ardvark

    Why is he not in jail for tax evasion?

    D**m those Southern (Democrat) States that force Slavery on the United States. They took a stand when ratifying the Constitution “No Slavery, No United States”. If I was a Democrat, maybe I would want the Daily Reminder of what they did to the United States removed as well.

    If past presidents are to be wiped from history for misdeeds, obviously William Jefferson Clinton will have to be delegitimized and removed from public recognition for misogyny, sexual harassment of women subordinates and alleged rape; and Barack Obama for driving racial disharmony by his constant attacks on white Americans as alleged beneficiaries of white privilege.

So Al, which one is it or are you high and also a special kind of stupid?

    Didn’t take long for Trumps prediction to come true. Today the left targets historic landmarks and tomorrow its the constitution written by the same people that were honored by the landmarks.

    When do we blow up Mt. Rushmore? Will America be allowed to have a history like Italy has the Roman Empire and Colosseum or England has the Tower of London or Greece has the Temples or Egypt has the Pyramids? OR will the America be ground into the dust like a plundered civilization where no history was allowed to exist. Will we become an extinct society with the only documentation of our history on some hard drive, crushed by a Democratic operative from a foreign country.

    May I suggest an alternative:
    Lets evaluate the political party that these “racist” historical figures belonged to… OMG: They were Democrats.
    Lets evaluate who established the Jim Crow laws that deferred equality for blacks for almost 100 years after the end of the Civil War… OMG: They were Democrats.
    Lets evaluate the policies that have enslaved blacks in our poor urban areas with substandard education and opportunity forcing them into generations of welfare mom’s, crack babies and gang members selling drug and killing each other… OMG: They were Democrats.

    Can we all agree that we must tear down the Democratic Party?

    There seems to be a lot of emphasis on how Obama destroyed the country. I contend that O was a SYMPTOM and RESULT of the destruction that’s been going on, not a primary cause. The American people, in the foreknowledge and wisdom of the Almighty, visited this destruction upon themselves. And they ratified their decision by electing him twice. So don’t pretend that the American people are innocent victims of TPTB. We get exactly the government we deserve.

    Hmmm! I wonder IF they’re going to destroy their “names” as well? There are so many Black people with names like Jefferson, Washington, etc!

  • JS

    This Al Sharpton thinks he is a Reverend and a Slave! Well Al, you are not either! You are a troublemaker, BLM disciple, racist of the worst kind and by the way AL, you owe back taxes in the millions! You do not like or respect the Constitution, but you hide behind it! Any of us who do pay Taxes
    Regularly would be in prison if we followed your path! You are part of the Swamp and need to be held accountable!

  • rick meek

    Man – this guy has been ranting – raving and taken a racist lunatic stance for decades….I’m tired of this A-hole…….He always has to get back in the spotlight and camera time just like the hollywooders…..FREE PUBLICITY….

  • Bob W

    We call for the removal of Al Sharpton!

    • Yarbles

      Balls first.

      What? No balls?

      • Bob W

        Whatever works, just so long as he’s gone.

  • Randy Baker

    Why is Sharpton still around. He should have been put down OOPS away long ago.

  • JHW

    This POS should worry about paying his taxes.

  • midogman

    i could just as easily say that black people are offensive to sight because they are a living reminder of the history of this country. which includes slavery. so get rid of them all.

  • whoisshe?

    What makes a slave !
    Why did Mandela trade slaves for guns isn’t that what he went to prison for !
    In the confederate days Thomas Jefferson named Virginia a Stature State!
    When Colonial Virginia was a Colony what were the borders at that time period !
    Who owned Colonial Virginia ! circa early 1800’s
    Just asking ? What happened to the Goins Collins Smith Jones and the Hensley’s !
    Does this mean Al Sharpton no more Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix that is delicious!
    No more Log Cabin Syrup delicious Monticello was well taking care of by Thomas Jefferson!

  • just care

    When All Sharpton was asked why he hated Mr. Jefferson so much, he said ” Because George was a greedy capitalist who treated his maid Florence so badly, and should have given some of his dry cleaning money to black lives matter.”
    It’s nice to see that the libs only associate with best minds .
    Sharpton also chimed in ” I’m glad we are removing the Robert E. Lee statues, but doesn’t think they look at all like the car from Dukes of Hazard that they were named after: Give em H€ll All !

  • carrie

    Well i spoke my piece i didnt insult anyone but i must have hit close to home they refused to print it not only are my civil rights being violated my right to freedom of speech have been to they wouldnt post my comment but farther down i read some pretty insulting stuff all i said was i read another story where a statue was going to be removed and replaced with a statue are you ready of Missy Elliot no offense to her but what role did she play in American history this site only post what riles people up then when you respond they banned your comment talk about fake news and news stations only wanting to print what they want well here you can add this one to the list as well

  • midogman

    on the bright side he is getting up there in years so maybe we won’t have to listen to his crap for much longer.

  • Raymond Miller

    Sharpton’s the one we need to target for removal. Why isn’t that N—-r in jail ?

    • Islandream

      He didn’t have time for jail, what with dozens of visits with the OTHER divisive, race baiting traitor in the WH…and he made certain that old SharKton couldn’t be brought down, even by the same thing that finally did in the OTHER Al….Capone !

  • Timothy Toroian

    Al the Shrimp should do something useful like demand the removal of Fat Kim. Maybe we should teach him a lesson, put up a large plaque describing who Jefferson was, his contributions and that it was destroyed at the insistence of Al Sharpton, in letters the same height as Al, describing him as a little man. Put him down in history. 20 year prison sentence for defacing the sign.

  • Terry

    This is a racist bigot that preys on his own race for money and really doesn’t give a **it about none of them, they are an expendable tool to keep his bank account overflowing. He is a disgusting so called human being, ahole delux!

  • katjan68

    Why not go after their chieftains who sold them into slavery??? Oops, they are long dead and this generation has never been enslaved. Go home and get a job like the rest of us.

  • iprazhm

    This is part of Obama’s ‘Hope and Change’ for America, coming to fruition. Some of the other cockroaches making sure it continues are skittering to the surface. Sharpton is one of the devils behind the removal of civil war historic monuments, and even the very names of war participants from public sight and mind. This is premeditated treachery from leftist elites. It wont stop with names of schools and confederate monuments. This is a war on our republic to weaken our resolve and replace our identity as a nation. In preparation of the coming diabolical one world government and it’s pagan religion.

  • Roy Veteto

    one way to solve this problem – put a sign that says IRS OFFICE on the jefferson memorial and that will do it

  • Mike Castrova

    Al Sharpton is a money-grubbing idiot in the mold of Jesse Jackson and Maxine Waters. Just about anyone in the USA would dismiss anything he has to say out-of-hand.

    • Bert

      Al Sharpton has realized that making stupid, provocative statements generates money. AND, he is more interested in making money than representing the people who need representation.

      • Mike Castrova

        You’re right on the money.

  • desiminator

    Seems to me Civil war only way end this crap

  • Tiger Wild

    Its time to stop removing history because black people are claiming they owned slaves, every race was enslaved, and until somebody can come forward with enough signatures that it takes before its even considered proving they themselves were slaves. Not likely somebody’s over 149 years old that can prove they were a slave. You got to know by now it’s not about slavery, it’s about taking out our Constitution and implementing Sharia law. There’s Muslims in every one of those liberal groups!

  • Robert D Green

    It’s time for the irreverent Sharptongue to get on his horse and ride into the sunset along with his poison tongue!

  • Henry Gregg Nash

    Al Sharpton is the biggest and well known racist, not to mention a BIGOT! He and his cohorts better leave the Jefferson Memorial alone!

  • Ronald Hagler

    Here is a man who owes the IRS more in “Back Taxes” than most Americans ever owe. Here is a man who, were he white and poor, would have had his assets frozen and, possibly, be in jail by now. How he thinks he has the right to judge some politician who lived more than 150 years ago, is only surpassed in arrogant stupidity by those who follow his rants. There was no hate by these declarers of freedom, just a strong desire for freedom from the British. The same is true about Confederate soldiers: they had no hate for slaves but did harbor an intense hatred for the heavy tariffs (taxes) levied against them by a Northern dominated Congress in the 1900s.

    Newsflash Al! The “Civil War” was neither civil nor fought over slavery. It wasn’t until 1865, after the surrender of Lee, that Congress passed the anti-slavery law. In his “Emancipation Proclamation” , Lincoln did not mention freeing all slaves; just those belonging to Southern plantation owners who supported those states still fighting the Union. It was never about Human Rights, but, rather power and control. Had Lincoln truly wanted to stop slavery, he would have freed all slaves in the North and within the Southern states now under Union army control, before making his speech in 1863. Slavery was not just a “Southern” thing, as it was present over the entire country, yet Lincoln chose to use the slaves in states still fighting the war as “bargaining” chips to persuade those states back into the Union. What would Lincoln have done had those states accepted his offer and rejoined the Union?

    Tearing down statues is nothing more than a hate filled effort to destroy history and rewrite it in a manner that suits certain beliefs and ambitions.

  • Bill Moniz

    sharpton needs to be tried for instigating riots.

  • Roger K

    Sharp ton is begging racist idiot liar.

  • kassa1

    Trump needs to get the IRS to target this race baiter and bust him, for all the money he owes the IRS. The IRS really belongs to we the people,and this piece of crap need to be Busted!

  • zookeeper216

    Nope, that’s not going to work out for him.

  • Elijah Washington

    Someone send his black butt to N Korea. Sure Kim would like some dark meat. He is the Racist King. Pay your back taxes fat boy!!!! He must miss all his closed door meetings with Barry Baby. Always the Black and White with him. Guess he agrees with BLM that all whites should turn our homes over to them. Dream on. Let them get Barry’s mansions. Haven’t noticed him giving up his home. After all Barry is black and white.

  • Glenn Hendriksn

    … sharpton – you OBESE negro ‘militant’ YOU go back to Winchell’s and order ANOTHER dozen glazed maple/chocolate bars for which you are known for LOL ! (it is this sugar RUSH this negro runs on)

  • JWH (NRA LIFE)

    The statements by these fools is very tiresome and a worthless waste of time!! Why don’t these individuals try to do something worthwhile with their time on this Earth, instead of this senseless BS? Tell AL SHARPTON about the fact that OBAMA’s “Tribe in AFRICA” were major Slavers in Africa during the “Slave Trading Period”!!! How would that “STACK UP” with his present Views about SLAVES? As usual he is full of CRAP and IGNORANT of Historical Facts that aren’t convenient to his agenda!!

  • Bo Burress

    What has this scumbag done for the black community besides taking their money?? Not a damn thing. This loud mouth’s great great grandfather was one of those black slave owners. What a “RACIST PIECE OF CRAP” !!!!

  • ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial

    Not-So-Sharpton is about as bright as a 1mw bulb, with a dead battery.

  • M.A.Rue

    Why isn’t this asshat in jail instead of on the news? He says he’s helping pay for the upkeep of monuments???? Too funny coming from someone who owes over $4 MILLION in back taxes.

  • Rolpho Signetti

    Good job Sharpie ol’ boy! You got it right! What is the best way for you to get in good with all your Negro brothers? Make some blind leap, knowing that there is no way in Hades that anybody gonna touch the J Memorial! You look good in the Black community for standing your ground. And, the libs love you for putting whitey in his place(even tho the majority is white). So it is a win-win for the Sharp! Still, you are nothing but a black stain in the road. But really… I thought you died like 6 months ago! Oh well… just more democratic/progressive psycho-babble! Who pays attention to it anyway! Just one lil side note: I like it when Hillary says in her new book… that was she going to bite her tongue, or confront Trump stalking her during the 2nd debate! But her training told her to be civilize(?)(Hillary?), and do not be intimidated by him! Well, she did not say anything until now… so I guess she was intimidated! YES! Another win for the Trumpster!

  • dragonflyhi

    Sharpton is an idiot…..definitely his black life doesn’t matter to me at all, as well of millions of other Americans! Just an ignorant blow hard…time to retire into obscurity Al Dullton, not Sharp.

  • jjmcl431

    Sharpton is the perfect example of why Lincoln screwed up when he freed the mud people.

  • DeadToad

    I think we should focus on the removal of Sharpton from our society. It sounds like he would be much happier living somewhere else.

  • nicki-baby

    Who really cares what that good-for-nothing, Al Sharpton thinks, he’s a ZERO as far as the conservatives think. Uneducated, liar, evil, stupid, foolish, big/mouth, black,says anyway,not I……

  • Charles Barton

    Sharpton pay his 5 million in taxes yet…..?

    He should be sent to Africa where he belongs.

    They can destroy all the statues they want, it will not change the fact that they are race hating bigots
    What a shame ,all those boys who died either for or against something they really did not understand. The civil war was about money and trade,. Lives mattered not , white or black. Its always about the dollar.

  • Popetal

    When will Sharpton be indicted for inciting a riot? Every time he opens his mouth it is to incite violent reaction.

  • satcatchet

    No, the sheriff is pardoned because of a crooked judge didn’t do her job. She needs to be disbarred.

  • Daryl Goto

    WONDER WHAT HE WOULD LOOK LIKE DIPPED IN BRONZES AND PUT UP ON A STAND .

  • Donna B

    I really don’t understand why all these people are trying to (doing) changing the way history played out!
    From the battle over:In God We Trust, The Ten Commandments The Confederate Flag, now attacking & removing the Statues of Past Historians, trying to change the names of schools, roads,
    THIS IS CRAZY! THIS IS OUR HISTORY! LEAVE IT ALONE! THIS ALSO BRINGS UP, (THE RAINBOW) ! The RAINBOW IS A PROMISE FROM GOD TO NOT DESTROY THE LAND BY FLOODS AGAIN, But the LGBT Adopted it as their symbol of “Pride”. This is totally crazy,
    Then I read that President Trump is going to start a Civil War, IT IS NOT PRESIDENT TRUMP THAT IS GOING TO DO THAT, it is everyone that is protesting Our President, (then we have Google’search keyboard word assist everything you type in President it pops up Obama. I didn’t vote for him but with that said the people of America didn’t riot or protest like it is now! I used to watch the news everyday but I can’t stand to watch it anymore because they pretty much all bad mouth our President Mr Trump.
    I FOR ONE AM PROUD TO BE A GOD BELIEVING CHRSTIAN, AMERICAN CITIZEN AND I WANT TO FEEL SAFE!
    The people who have all the issues ie: Hollywood who bans Actors & Actresses who show support for Our President & California trying to boycott any workers who build the wall, in my opinion the rest of the people in North America who feel the same & take it to extremes why don’t you pack up & move to California or some other Country, THIS Country was founded on a Solid Rock Foundation by Christians who left the homes they had so they could learn, teach, & Preach the Gospel-
    I for one am a Born Again Christian Saved by Grace though the Blood of Jesus Christ sent by God to suffer & die for the sins of all, the way the World is now, that was a very heavy burden. I thank you Jesus for taking my sins
    I read a comment from JESUSPROTECTUS that says the people who were forced into slavery were people’s family and the others who forced them into it were also someone’s family. But the difference is ; it was a tragic part of History, but the family members now are not slaves and others don’t own slaves anymore, so why are we all still paying for the sins of Past generations. We need to teach our children the past and teach them how to change history and everyone be able to live as God intended! This is my opinion!

  • CJ

    Can Sharpton even walk & chew gum at the same time?

  • Philomena

    RACIST, TAX CHEAT, OBAMA’S FRIEND Al Sharpton must go to Prison

  • Dale Shamp

    Hello out there! The U.S. did not start slavery in the world. Read your history. Portugal and other African countries started the New World slave trade. Sharpton and his cronies should also study history. They are so frigging ignorant.

  • Kathleen Pedersen

    Al Sharpton has been mouthing off for so many years and he’s still pathetic. He preys on poor black people with his lies and on white people to give him money to shut him up. What a piece………..there’s a reall hot spot waiting for him on judgement day.

  • pathf

    With all of these Idiots wanting to get rid of Historic landmarks and sites, I can’t wait to hear what they say when everyone gets fed up and decides to take down ALL of the Martin Luther King road signs.

    WHY isn’t this ugly, stupid looking piece of garbage NOT incarcerated for tax evasion?? One of us “privileged” white people would be convicted and locked up by now if we did that! obama met with this sleezy screwball as an adviser ….??? WHO, in their right mind would seek counsel with this creature. He needs to be flushed and where he best fits mankind…….
