Al Sharpton Threatens Moderate Dem Senators With ‘Racism’ if They Don’t End Filibuster

Al Sharpton who hosts an MSNBC show and profits from ‘”racism,” is now threatening to label Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin as “racists” if they do not vote to end the fillibuster.

According to Fox News:

Civil rights leader and MSNBC host Al Sharpton threatened to accuse Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona of “supporting racism” over their approval of the Senate filibuster.

“The pressure that we are going to put on Sinema and Manchin is calling [the filibuster] racist and saying that they are, in effect, supporting racism,” Sharpton told Politico. “Why would they be wedded to something that has those results? Their voters need to know that.”

Manchin said earlier in March that he would “never” stop supporting the filibuster. Sinema has said that she is not open to “changing her mind.”

Their views on the filibuster are important because the Senate is evenly split 50-50, with the deciding vote going to Vice President Harris. In most legislation, there is a 60-vote threshold to advance to President Biden’s desk.

Many progressive Democrats see the filibuster as an outdated Senate law that will be wielded by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to derail Biden’s agenda to save the world.

As far as I’m concerned, Van, anyone who sees color and race first are the true racists. And that includes Sharpton!! That’s a very superficial way to judge people — by appearance alone.

Unfortunately, and perhaps even by design, we have an enemy from within – We have sunken into a society of Envy, Hate, and constant Resistance at any cost – even the deliberate destruction of the economy fueled by the Mainstream Media.

Social Media Mob is the new tool of Extortion by the Cancel Culture
·      Companies are afraid for their reputation, so they give hundreds of millions of dollars to the Marxist BLM cause without knowing where the money goes – ‘peaceful’ demonstrations, riots and lootings are well organized and funded operations
·      No major law firm can no longer represent any individual or corporation the Cancel Culture does not agree with, because they and their clients will be targeted in the Social Medial – major intimidation (extortion)
·      Individuals are afraid for their safety and jobs
·      Feel-Good Limousine Liberals (Hollywood and Media) want to demonstrate that they ‘understand’ and ‘care’, until the Mob shows up in their neighborhood

If it is not too late – It is a high time for adult and fact-based news reporting, as well as civil conversation on Social Medial, if we want to preserve the foundation of this country (USA – the best in the world) was built on.

Let’s remember that any time we judge the past based on today’s (real or manufactured) standards, all of us will fail every time.

People should wake up to the fact that the left is using guilt and shame, racism, white privilege and racism to divide the country and destroy what progress had been made.

They will use anything, whether factual or not, to achieve supremacy sand votes.

All needs to go back to school to figure out what impact that racism charge is going to have in West Virginia (the home state of Robert Byrd) and Arizona. Their respective black populations are 3 & 4%. I never understood how BLM is protesting in places like Washington State and Oregon, both of which have tiny black populations as a percentage. Even CA only has a 7% black population. The states in the south have the highest black populations, it would appear that blacks and whites have learned to live together quite well in the south yet somehow white supremacy is claimed a huge problem now, then why are people fleeing the states like CA and NY and coming to the south if that were the case? Large black populations, 5-10X the percentage of black populations in these west coast states and WV and AZ. There appears to be no logic employed when making these arguments but that is not surprising today.

I believe blacks are 14% of the population. 330 million people live in America(?) That is 46 million persons. According to a Yale/MIT report there were 22 – 35 million illegals residing in America before Biden ordered “open borders”. Next year we will have an illegal majority at the rate things are going now. By the way in 2017(?) American taxpayers paid $134.9 BILLION for illegal welfare. LA county in California alone paid $1.3 billion while 50,000 Americans lived in tents. Another slap to Americans. In 2020 green card Mexicans sent $40 BILLION “home” to Mexico “doing jobs Americans won’t do”. Strange but a year or so ago ICE raided a “chicken” factory in Tennessee. 600 illegals working there. 300 illegals had children and were released the other 300? Later the company had a job fair. All those jobs were filled by AMERICANS who wouldn’t do those jobs.

Sharpton is the problem not the solution. The reason most of us think that racism is over played is because if people like him. The fact that anything that doesn’t get them exactly what they want is called racism only serves to kill the cases of true racism. I hate and will fight to my last breath true racism, however Sharpton is a boil on the butt of humanity. He should talk only after he pays his taxes, because I have no doubt that he isn’t in a federal pen because he is black.

Al Sharpton has fed on the racism card his whole adult life, He makes a living by dividing black people against white people. He is a racist by trade, and peddles hate.
He is not a man of god, he is a separatist who preaches hate, and divides gods people , making no attempt to erase the differences and create a congruent society between all people. Instead he feeds off their differences, and encourages racism for his own profit.
