Shameless Al Sharpton Shakedown #34588: Wants Olympics to Boycott Chicago

By Debbie Schlussel
Why does Al Sharpton keep getting away with this stuff? Well, not just because the liberal mainstream media legitimizes him, but egomaniac so-called conservatives like Sean Vanity Hannity and Bill O’Reilly keep pandering to him and giving him airtime. I blame them as much as I blame the liberal media. He plays them even more like violins than he does the Matt Lauers and Diane Sawyers of the world.
The latest Shameless Sharpton Shakedown: Former coke dealer Sharpton is mad about alleged Chicago “police brutality,” so he’s threatening to ask the International Olympic Comittee to exclude Chicago from contention as a host city for the 2016 Summer Games. . . . unless, of course, the City of Chicago gives in to Weird Al’s shakedown.


Weird Al Sharpton: Race Merchant, Coke Dealer & “Police Brutality” Expert

Yup, deny Chicago’s inner city the economic effects of millions in Olympic spending in exchange for headline-grabbing media attention with your threats. That’s the ticket. Way to fight for Black America, Sharpie.
No biggie that, this summer, the Olympics are being held in Beijing, where they don’t have any police brutality. As we all know, Tiananmen Square is located just west of Lake Michigan, right next to the Mao Zedung Museum. No longer the Windy City, Chicago is the real home of police brutality in this world. Al Sharpton says so.
And you know the spineless city will probably give in. This is, after all, the city where they made it illegal to serve fois gras. Chicago cops will have to go through sensitivity-training contracted to one of Sharp’s friends, I’m sure. And maybe Sharpton will even get the key to the city.
Anything is possible, so long as Sharpton continues to be glorified by not just ABCNBCCBSCNNMSNBC, but HANNITYVANITYO’REILLYFALAFEL.
Whatever happened to the good ‘ole days when Sharpton was a medallions-and-track-suit adorned joke.
Flashback – from David Letterman’s, “Roman Numeral Two: An Altogether New Book of Top Ten Lists From ‘Late Night With David Letterman'” (Most are dated b/c Sharp no longer wears medallions, track suits, and a blow-dried coke dealer haircut–and he’s not as fat; I’ve bolded/underlined the best two.):

10. To avoid overweight charges for your luggage, wear as many of your medallions as possible
9. Don’t forget the electrical adapter for your blow dryer.
8. All foreign food is good if you bring your own gravy.
7. Before making reservations, make sure hotel has fat-guy suite.
6. If hair pomade is not available in Far East, duck sauce will work.
5. March in Buckingham Palace to protest the fact that there hasn’t been a Black King in years.
4. When in Venice, have them load up front end of gondola with sacks of peat moss to balance you out in the back.
3. If the Pope tries wearing some big medallion, go ahead and wear two.
2. Be careful: In some countries, being loud and obnoxious is considered rude.
1. Trust me: One jogging suit is all you’ll need.

This guy is nothing more than a glorified blackmail artist. Anyone who takes him seriously or believes a word that comes out of his mouth is a bigger fool than Fat Albert is himself. Every time he or his running buddy the poet comes on tv, I roll my eyes and turn the channel. Someone should refer them to the classic the Boy who Cried Wolf. The moral of that story is there is no believing a liar, even when he speaks the truth.

Many years ago, I sent a detailed package to Al Sharpton and his National Action Network. I asked him to help me honor the African American stablehand who called New York City the Big Apple.
I received no reply, and the African American has never been honored.
Thanks a bunch, Al.

Unfortenly only to the mainstream and shakedown artists, a black person has to have all the quailties of a ghetto-fied hip hop ignorant pimp-like psychonut in order to be a legitimate black.
Since I’m not one of them, nor is that stagehand, we are ether ignored or considered “white”.
This piece of s— repersents only himself and uses race as a shield. ANYONE WHO TAKES HIM SERIOUSLY SHOULD BE SLAPPED HARD.

I’m certainly not an admirer of Al Sharpton, but I hope he can help keep the Olympics out of Chicago. I live in the Chicago area, and county taxes are likely to skyrocket next year, and real estate taxes are skyrocketing for many people, even with assessment “caps” in place, which are only guaranteed for three years. I think that if we have the Olympics here, the taxpapers will bear much of the brunt for them — we don’t need that.

Well, of COURSE he’s doing this. Chicago is traditionally Jesse Jackson’s stronghold. It’s more about Al vs. Jesse than the Man vs. the Black man. He just opened up an office here. This is just an early round in the turf was between the two “Civil Rights Leaders” for ranking title of Head of the Victimization posse.

Report: Feds Raid Al Sharpton Offices, Subpoena Financial Records, Employees
Thursday, December 13, 2007

NEW YORK รณ Federal authorities have subpoenaed financial records and employees in an apparent probe of the Rev. Al Sharpton’s 2004 presidential bid, nonprofit civil rights group, and for-profit businesses, a newspaper reported Thursday.
As many as 10 Sharpton associates were subpoenaed Wednesday to testify before a federal grand jury in Brooklyn Dec. 26, his lawyer told the Daily News.
They were told to provide investigators with financial records from the campaign and roughly six Sharpton-related businesses, as well as personal financial documents of Sharpton and his wife, the newspaper said.
The FBI and Internal Revenue Service are seeking the records, which go back to 2001, according to the Daily News.
A Sharpton spokeswoman did not immediately return phone calls or e-mail messages early Thursday.
An FBI agent who answered the phone at the agency’s New York headquarters declined to comment, and an agency spokesman did not immediately return a telephone message. An IRS spokesman did not immediately return phone calls.
“It was like a sting or a raid,” said Carl Redding, Sharpton’s chief of staff for eight years during the 1990s. “They converged on everybody.”
Redding said FBI agents awoke him at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday with a subpoena to testify and to bring records to the grand jury, but would not tell him the reason for the investigation.
Several staffers from the National Action Network, a Sharpton-led civil rights organization, also got subpoenas to testify, said Sharpton lawyer Michael Hardy. Sharpton himself did not receive a subpoena, the Daily News said.
Sharpton spokesman Charlie King said the minister and the National Action Network were cooperating with the probe. Hardy was sanguine about the developments.
“I can’t think of a time when the Rev. Sharpton wasn’t under investigation,” he said.
Sharpton agreed in 2005 to repay the government $100,000, plus interest, for taxpayer money he received during his failed effort to win the Democratic presidential nomination the year before, though he denied wrongdoing.
The Federal Election Commission had determined that he spent more of his own money on the campaign than the qualifications for federal matching funds allow.
In 1993, Sharpton pleaded guilty to not filing a state income tax return in 1986.

Come on, the idiot associates himself with a 33rd degree freeemason…the Rev Jesse Jackson. Here’s a breaking news, Albert Pike, now dead, was also a freemason and guess who? The head honcho of the KKK. Oooo, so black brothers and sisters, Jesse is a racist and supports the Klan

KOAJaps on December 14, 2007 at 9:35 pm

KOAJaps: I’ve read that both Sharpton and Jackson are 33rd degree masons, although I’m not sure how to verify that for sure. However, Albert Pike, once Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite’s Southern Jurisdiction, author of Morals and Dogma, and one of the most revered and respected Freemasons of all time, is the only member of the Confederacy to have a statue in Washington D.C.

If Jackson and Sharpton are indeed Masons, I find it extremely hard to believe that they don’t know who Albert Pike is. And even if they’re NOT Masons, in more than four decades of being the spokespersons on behalf of all black people regarding what is racist and what is not, I find it hard to believe that they’ve never once taken notice of the fact that there’s a statue in D.C. of a Confederate general! Isn’t that normally the type of thing Jackson and Sharpton would raise hell about? And yet they’ve never uttered a peep about it.
