What did Bernie Sanders and Al Sharpton discuss today at the Harlem meeting? Though neither one of these men has stated anything about it yet, we can say just based upon Sharpton’s and Sanders’s ideologies from before they met, that they are bad for a free United States.
Al Sharpton was first “ordained by F.D. Washington when he was a ripe 10 years old. That seems to be too young to understand what religion is about, much less to be ordained, but for the sake of an argument, we will say he was ordained at 10 years old as a Pentecostal minister.
Alfred Charles Sharpton was born in Brooklyn, New York in October 1954, to comparatively prosperous parents. He demonstrated considerable verbal dexterity at an early age and is reputed to have begun preaching when he was four years old. He was touted as “the wonder-boy preacher” by age 7, when he toured with gospel singer Mahalia Jackson and Pentecostal minister F.D. Washington. Washington personally ordained Sharpton, who idolized Adam Clayton Powell, as a Pentecostal minister when the boy was 10.
Sharpton would begin his radical training after his parents got divorced and his family became reliant on welfare.
That same year, Sharpton’s parents divorced, leaving the youngster and his mother impoverished and reliant on welfare. In the late 1960s, Sharpton joined the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). In 1969 he was appointed as youth director of SCLC’s “Operation Breadbasket,” an initiative headed by Jesse Jackson which boycotted businesses accused of failing to hire enough black employees. Jackson, moreover, became a mentor to Sharpton.
Clearly, Sharpton got his extreme left ideology from being a student of Jesse Jackson, a man who had links to and worked with Communists.
In the January 1984 edition of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA) publication Political Affairs, Kevin Mercadel—a Harlem-based organizer for the New York Communist Party—said: “Our ’84 electoral activity began with the formation of the Rainbow Coalition in Harlem in support of Jesse Jackson’s campaign for the presidency.” Such support, added Mercadel, “was expected of us.”
A noteworthy individual who worked for Jackson’s presidential campaign was Communist Workers Party member Bill Chong, who would later go on to serve as board president of Asian Americans for Equality, deputy commissioner of New York City’s Department for the Aging, and commissioner of New York’s Youth and Community Development under
Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Jackson brought Sharpton up to speed with his ties to all that is Anti-United States. A Communist paper even praised Sharpton for his work.
In the February 9, 1971 edition of the Communist Party USA newspaper Daily World, CPUSA member Stephanie Allan wrote about a pair of recent rallies (in Chicago and in White Plains, New York) which had been held to support a CPUSA front called The Committee to Free Angela Davis. At the time, Davis was in prison for her role in abetting the murder of a California judge. Eliseo Medina was one of the speakers at the Chicago event, while Sharpton addressed the New York rally. According to Stephanie Allan, Sharpton and fellow speaker J.L. Scott “exposed the connection between [the] A&P [Corporation], U.S. monopoly capitalism, racism and imperialism, and related these to the Angela Davis case and the threat to the vital rights of the Black people.”
How does this give rise to even making an assumption that these two are together in their ideas? We just have to go back to 1979 and look at what Bernie Sanders has done with his “Socialist” ideology, including placing a Soviet flag in his office.
He was subsequently re-elected three times and served as mayor until 1989. Sanders created some controversy when he hung a Soviet flag in his mayoral office, in honor of Burlington’s Soviet sister city, Yaroslavl, located some 160 miles northeast of Moscow.
But the two men have a lot more in common with this specific aspect of their ideas and lives: could this be why they met? Sharpton did say he wished to meet with Hillary Clinton before he made up his mind, and the way the Socialist/Communist/Democratic Party now stands is closely aligned with the ideologies that wish to destroy the United States from within. Sanders does not wish to help people but to make them his voting slaves by keeping them fed off the federal government while lying to them that he wishes to help them get good jobs. To see where Bernie Sanders gets some of his deep support, go back to 1988 to find his association with a Communist Party member and an individual stating his support for Sanders due to his rich Socialism.
In October 1988, journalist I. F. Stone, a former Soviet agent and secret member of the Communist Party USA, wrote a letter endorsing Sanders’s congressional campaign. Said Stone: “He has proved that a socialist, running as an Independent … can be successful by speaking out for working people, the elderly and the poor,” and by advancing “a pragmatic socialism to deal with the grave problems of our economic system.”
Can you see why these 2 men may have met? Maybe they are working out their plans to destroy the hated United States? Maybe they are working to make Socialism/Communism the parties to replace the Democrats?
Sharpton first entered America’s national consciousness on a large scale in November 1987, when he injected himself into the case of a 15-year-old black girl named Tawana Brawley, who claimed that she had been abducted and raped by a gang of six whites in Dutchess County, New York. Despite a complete absence of any credible evidence to support Miss Brawley’s story, Sharpton assumed the role of special adviser to the girl and thereafter worked closely with her attorneys, C. Vernon Mason (who, later in his career, would be convicted of 66 counts of professional misconduct and disbarred from the legal profession) and Alton Maddox (who has publicly expressed his profound hatred for white people).
In June 1988, a Sharpton aide named Perry McKinnon stepped forward to make a remarkable series of disclosures. A former police officer, private investigator, and director of security at a Brooklyn Hospital, McKinnon revealed that: “Sharpton acknowledged to me early on that ‘The [Brawley] story do sound like bull—t, but it don’t matter. We’re building a movement. This is the perfect issue. Because you’ve got whites on blacks. That’s an easy way to stir up all the deprived people, who would want to believe and who would believe—and all [you’ve] got to do is convince them—that all white people are bad. Then you’ve got a movement.” Explaining that Sharpton was methodically “building an atmosphere” for a race war, McKinnon continued: “Sharpton told me it don’t matter whether any whites did it or not. Something happened to her…even if Tawana done it to herself.” To prove his truthfulness, McKinnon submitted to a lie-detector test administered on camera and passed all questions.
In the autumn of 1988, after conducting an exhaustive review of the facts, a grand jury released its report showing beyond any doubt that the entire Tawana Brawley story had been fabricated, and that at least $1 million of New York taxpayers’ money had been spent to investigate a colossal hoax.
Sharpton abused his authority to go forward with a hoax that would later cost him $87,000, paid not by Sharpton, but by an unknown group of Sharpton supporters. Can this be part of Sharpton’s plan: to get with Sanders and do the same thing with the entire United States? Bernie Sanders’s background seems to align with Sharpton’s ideas like cogs in a wheel.
Sanders was a guest speaker at a January 9, 1997 event titled “The Progressive Challenge: Capitol Hill Forum,” sponsored by the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the Democratic Socialists of America, and numerous other left-wing organizations. The primary objective of this event was to “identify the unifying values shared by progressives at this point in U.S. history, to help define core elements of a forward-looking progressive agenda, and to pinpoint ways to connect that agenda with the concerns of millions of disillusioned people who lack voices in present politics and policy-making.” Other speakers included Noam Chomsky, Barbara Ehrenreich, Patricia Ireland, Jesse Jackson, and Richard Trumka.
Neither the Congressional Progressive Caucus nor the Democratic Socialists of America (which, by the way, has some 70 members in the House of Representatives and Bernie Sanders as their President) are friendly to the way the Constitution works, and both work to tear the basic Constitution apart little by little.
* Among the notables who have contributed money to Sanders’s political campaigns over the years are Aris Anagnos, Ed Asner‘s wife Cindy, Brent Blackwelder, Ossie Davis, Rob Reiner, Susan Sarandon, Jan Schakowsky, Pete Seeger, Barbra Streisand, and Margery Tabankin.
Although this list looks harmless, it is like the reading of who’s who in the Communist/Socialist ideologies of the United States. As a small example, we show Richard Trumka as happily sitting with Communists and giving a speech at the Communist Party meeting. That does not sound like an individual that honors the working man or the United States.
In August 2014, Politico.com published a feature story titled, “How Al Sharpton Became Obama’s Go-To Man on Race.” The piece stated that “Sharpton not only visits the White House frequently, he often texts or emails with senior Obama officials such as [Valerie] Jarrett and Attorney General Eric Holder.” It quoted Jesse Jackson saying, “I’ve known Al since he was 12 years old, and he’s arrived at the level he always wanted to arrive at, which is gratifying. He’s the man who’s the liaison to the White House, he’s the one who’s talking to the Justice Department.” Sharpton himself, meanwhile, offered his own assessment of how he had bonded with Obama: “The relationship evolved over time…. The key for him was seeing that I wasn’t insincere, that I actually believed in the stuff I was talking about.”
We have shown but a small part of what these two men are and neither of them is for the United States. Sharpton is a man obsessed with destroying anyone who is not black, so it is interesting to see him meet with Bernie Sanders, Maybe they met to discuss what they could do together to take what they can from those who work and give it to those who refuse to work and think they are owed that because of their color or long past problems.
In either case, it is just supposition. What have the man who race baits nearly everything and a man deeply set in Socialism met to discuss? Is it their plan to destroy the United States? Once you read this article, pass it on to people you know who may be in love with Bernie Sanders and his Socialist ideas.
The United States was born for freedom, not the restrictive Socialism or Communism that is lurking now openly in the once Democratic Party. It is time to stand with the United States or fall with the ideas of Socialism/Communism. May God help the United States to regain the former ideas that made us great.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
