What GOP Senate Candidate Said to Al Sharpton is What Conservatives Have Wanted to Say For a Long Time

Published

on

On MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” program, a GOP senate candidate from Virginia finally told Al Sharpton, to his face, what many a conservative has longed to say for a very long time.

This man, Corey Stewart, called Sharpton, on air and to his face, a race hustler. The satisfaction that comes from this is truly cathartic.

For those who don’t know, Sharpton — who hasn’t paid his taxes in who knows how long — has a well earned reputation for stirring up racial strife and division as a means of making money from the protests to follow.

Sharpton asked, “Do you consider yourself a candidate — the candidate for white nationalists in the state of Virginia?”

Stewart replied, “No, of course not, Reverend, and here’s the thing. I know you brought me on your show because you want to talk about the one-year anniversary of the horrible events in Charlottesville last year. But, you know, I meet with voters every single day, the residents of Virginia, and there’s one thing that is very, very clear and that is people are sick and tired of talking about race all the time, they’re tired of it, they want to move on, the people of Charlottesville want to move on, the people of Virginia want to move on, they have a lot more important issues to talk about than race on a constant basis, which is what we get out of you and the rest of the media on a daily basis.”

After playing a video of Stewart giving a speech about the Confederacy, the exchange got heated when Stewart said, “You know, why is it that you on the left are so obsessed with what happened 150 years ago, you know my, I’m running for United States–”

Sharpton interjected, “No, no, I’m talking about you last year, I’m not talking about—”

Stewart said, “You have me on your show so I can I speak I presume, right?”

Sharpton said, “Explain to me your statement in light of what you’re saying now.”

Stewart said, “Reverend, let me just explain this. People don’t care what happened 150 years ago. Historians love this stuff, and I love history, but the end of the day, we need to look at what the problems are today. You mentioned that it was only people of a certain race who were facing these challenges, with their education, their health care, their jobs, everything else. That’s just simply not true. There are Americans of every single race, of every single religion of every single ethnicity that are struggling with the same things. As long as we continue to divide Americans by race– and you’ve made a career out of dividing people by race, you’ve been a race hustler your entire career. You’ve made a lot of money at it, you haven’t even bothered to pay your taxes, and all you do is divide Americans by race.”

Sharpton said, “I’m not going for the bait.”

Explosive, right?

It’s really about time someone put this guy in his place. After all, he’s the one who has spent his entire career acting as a wrecking ball to destroy the progress made by actual Civil Rights leaders through out the last several decades, once again erecting a wall between whites and blacks and other minorities that shouldn’t exist.

Everything is a race issue with opportunists like Sharpton, as that’s the hot button issue of the day that everyone is sensitive about. He’s an exploitative man who doesn’t let a good opportunity go to waste.

It’s time we start hitting back at these folks and holding them accountable for their actions.

Putin Puffs Out His Chest: Crossing ‘Red Lines’ Will Prompt ‘Asymmetrical’ Response

Putin has been extremely antsy as of late.

Russia

It appears that US President Joe Biden is really getting under the skin of Russian President Dictator Vladimir Putin. These leaders of the world two preeminent superpowers have been trading barbs for weeks now, and on a range of subjects.  The latest focus of their fury has to do with the Kremlin’s continued aggression against Ukraine, where Russian military forces are lining just over the border, with “invasion stripes” painted on their vehicles to prevent friendly fire. This is a tacit admission that there will be fire, and Biden isn’t going to stand for it. The US first sent warships in the direction of the Black Sea in an attempt to deter Putin from poking the bear.  The Russian government responded by blocking the entrance to the area and warning that America’s maneuvers were “adversarial”. Biden responded by sanctioning Russia over a major hacking attack that took place months ago. Now, just ahead of what is believed to be an inevitable Russian invasion of Ukraine, Putin is once again puffing out his chest. Russian President Vladimir Putin, in his annual State of the Nation speech, warned on Wednesday against provoking his country, promising a swift retaliation against anyone who crossed “red lines.“ Moscow will respond “harshly,” “quickly” and “asymmetrically” to foreign provocations, Putin told an audience of Russia’s top officials and lawmakers, adding that he “hoped” no foreign actor would cross Russia’s “red lines,” according to a Reuters translation. Russia is also facing international condemnation for their treatment of journalist Alexei Navalny, who is believed to be at death’s door at a Russian prison hospital.  Joe Biden has said that Russia would “pay a price” if Navalny were to perish in custody of the government.

DOJ Opens Investigation into Minneapolis Police Department

The investigation will feature the department’s civil rights division.

On Tuesday, Derek Chauvin was found guilty on all charges in the death of George Floyd. Chauvin was seen on video kneeling on the neck of Floyd for nearly 9 minutes as the restrained man slowly suffocated, in a moment that has haunted our nation for a year. Now that Chauvin is off to prison, and a likely, lengthy appeals process, the Department of Justice is now hoping to find out exactly what went wrong in Minneapolis, and whether or not there is some systemic issue with the police department itself. Attorney General Merrick Garland announced Wednesday that the Justice Department will be conducting an investigation of law enforcement in Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd. The announcement comes one day after a Hennepin County jury found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second degree murder for killing Floyd. “Yesterday’s verdict in the state criminal trial does not address potentially systemic policing issues in Minneapolis,” Garland said during a press conference. Garland said the probe will be a “fully comprehensive review” that will look into whether the Minneapolis Police Department has a “pattern or practice of unconstitutional or unlawful policing.” He specificed that this includes “using excessive force, including during protests,” as well as “discriminatory conduct and whether its treatment of those with behavioral health disabilities is unlawful.” The DOJ will utilize their civil rights division in the investigation, and the Attorney General said that the move could protect “good cops” from their not-so-pristine peers in the precinct. “I strongly believe that good officers do not want to work in systems that allow bad practices,” Garland said. “Good officers welcome accountability because accountability is an essential part of building trust with the community and public safety requires public trust.” Chauvin was moved to prison on Wednesday, and promptly…
