Snitchgate — Sharpton Is Still Lying

Posted By Larry Elder On April 18, 2014 @ 12:05 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | No Comments


If the Rev. Al Sharpton, the bigoted, anti-Semitic, non-tax paying race-hustling poverty pimp, had any credibility left, it just vanished.

The beneficiary of a lifetime of passes from our race-conscious mainscream media, Sharpton ran into an outlet not afraid of him — The Smoking Gun. They obtained material that exposed Sharpton as an FBI “informant.” Sharpton, of course, denies that this constitutes “snitching.” No, he says he “volunteered” to “cooperate” with the FBI — and for the most honorable of motives.

Why would the government-hating “civil rights” leader cooperate with the feds? Sharpton told Joe Scarborough, co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” that he did so to root out “mob influence” in the record business. To this, the suppliant Joe Scarborough actually praised Sharpton, calling him “a great example.”

Here’s the problem. The “great example” apparently cooperated to avoid going to prison for dealing drugs.

A “60 Minutes” outtake from CBS’ 2011 Sharpton profile shows correspondent Leslie Stahl aggressively questioning him about being an FBI “informant.” Sharpton admits “cooperating,” but says he did so to expose “crack houses” and corruption in boxing. They show the lying, shifty, obviously uncomfortable Sharpton dodging and deflecting — clearly unhappy with the line of questioning. He told Stahl that the FBI asked him “what I know about (boxing promoter) Don King, but said nothing about the mob in the record business, the reason he gave to Scarborough.

In 2002, HBO aired 19-year-old FBI hidden camera video of Sharpton with a self-described mobster and an undercover FBI agent posing as a Latin-American “businessman.” The three discussed promoting boxing matches and musical events. It also shows the undercover agent trying to convince Sharpton to play a middleman in a big cocaine buy. They discuss “4 million” in “coke,” a “six week” time frame, a price tag of “$35,000 a kilo” with “$3,500″ to Sharpton for “every kilogram” brought in.

Sharpton, on tape, was agreeable to all terms.

Sharpton later said he agreed because he was scared. But, according to the New York Post, a former Sharpton aide said: “It was greed. (Sharpton) just wanted money.” Sharpton cut a deal. The ex-aide said: “Sharpton moved on it, and they sprung the trap on him right away. They got him. Al told me himself. He bit and took the bait. … Sharpton said they could do whatever they wanted with him after that.

 … Either he worked for them or they put that news out there that he was into coke.” The “civil rights” leader who condemned drugs while attempting to deal them snitched to save his hide — nothing more, nothing less, nothing noble.

Days after CBS released its 2011 outtakes, late-night host Arsenio Hall welcomed Sharpton with a flattering introduction. Only days earlier, Hall admitted to another guest that Sharpton suckered him with the fraudulent Tawana Brawley affair. Yet, in talking to Sharpton, Hall never mentioned the drug tape, never asked about the shifting reasons for “informing.” This, of course, is precisely why Sharpton chooses venues like that where he’ll be licked to death.

The “civil rights” leader became famous by falsely accusing a man of raping Tawana Brawley, only to be held liable for defamation. Since then, Sharpton has compiled an impressive and lengthy rap sheet of race-card hustles. This includes Crown Heights, to take just one.

Sharpton turned a tragic auto accident into a racial incident after a 7-year-old black child was killed in Crown Heights (in Brooklyn) when a car driven by a Hasidic Jew went out of control. Sharpton derided Jews as “diamond merchants” and led 400 protesters through the Jewish section of Crown Heights, with one protester holding a sign that read, “The White Man Is the Devil.” There were four nights of rock- and bottle-throwing. A young Talmudic scholar was surrounded by a mob shouting, “Kill the Jew,” and was stabbed to death. A hundred others were injured. Sharpton bellowed, “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house.”

The “civil rights leader” has also managed to avoid jail despite being millions of dollars light in federal and state income taxes. The New York Post reported in 2011 that Sharpton “owe(d) the IRS $2.6 million in income tax and nearly $900,000 in state tax.” Sharpton’s money-losing non-profit “civil rights organization,” called the National Action Network, has failed to pay payroll taxes. Last year’s state and federal filings showed NAN had more than $1 million in deficits and owed $871,688 in unpaid payroll taxes, including penalties and interest.

Sharpton’s busy life includes a daily hour-long show on MSNBC and a three-hour daily radio show. Plus, he claims to put in a 40-hour workweek at NAN, still manages multiple TV, radio and live guest appearances around the country.

The IRS, should it turn its attention away from tea party applications, might be curious. How does Sharpton manage to do all this andstill put in 40 hours per week to justify his $250K CEO salary? Celebritynetworth.com clocks him in at $5 million, plus.

Not bad for “no justice, no peace.”

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these

Doesn't this also prove why the feds never went after Sharpton or investigated him, because he was an informant?

Was it that or the fact he was a democrat and America hater?

Yeah, but why is Sharpton so powerful that Hannity, O'Reilly, and Glenn Beck as a CNN Headline News host kissed his ass?

Buried bodies.

Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.
