NYC Mayor De Blasio ‘Pissed’ At Al Sharpton For Publicly Shaming Him

Posted By Brendan Bordelon On 4:10 PM 08/08/2014 In | No Comments




Left-wing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is reportedly “pissed” at MSNBC host Al Sharpton for showing him up at a city hall conference on police brutality and racism last week.

The New York Post reported on Friday that the mayor is regretting his decision to allow the longtime civil rights leader to sit at his side during a government conference to address the death of Eric Garner, an unarmed African-American man killed by a NYPD officer’s illegal chokehold.

Sharpton used his “seat of honor” at de Blasio’s left to lambaste the mayor, hinting that he has ignored his responsibility to African-Americans and threatening his future political prospects.

“If [de Blasio's son] Dante wasn’t your son, he’d be a candidate for a chokehold,” he lectured the mayor. De Blasio is married to an African-American woman. “And we’ve got to deal with that reality.”

“If we’re gonna just play spin games, I’ll be your worst enemy,” Sharpton later warned. “Because I am tired of seeing people bury their kin.”

A source told The Post that de Blasio “was really pissed at what Sharpton did.”

“He felt [Sharpton] embarrassed him,” the source continued, “and he regrets now that he let the press in and that he moved Sharpton up [to the dais].”

“It’s obvious it was a mistake,” another source said. “It makes him look weak.”

De Blasio has faced a minor revolt over the death of Garner — particularly within the city’s African-American community — and has taken criticism over a perceived failure to hold the officer’s responsible to account.

Sharpton told The Post that he’d spoken with the mayor’s office since then and didn’t feel there was any bad blood between them.

 
And a de Blasio spokesman claimed that “while [the mayor] doesn’t always agree with Reverend Sharpton, he certainly respects him” and that he was “pleased Reverend Sharpton came to City Hall to participate in this important roundtable on police-community relations.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

A person who is shamed by Al Sharpton must be pretty damn stupid.

Pretty much so. But sometimes I think the mayor New York City deserves is Al Sharpton.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

The mayor of Chicago has beaten him to it.
