(National Sentinel) Troublemaker: The “Rev.” Al Sharpton, like all of his race-baiting colleagues, long ago ceased to be a useful force for change in America. That’s because long ago — in the 1960s — our country adopted a series of civil rights laws and regulations cementing the Constitution’s promise of equal treatment and justice for all.
But in 2018 Sharpton continues to pretend like our country has made no progress at all when it comes to civil rights, so every time there is an incident involving a black man killed by a white person, he has to show up and needlessly stir up trouble.
One Florida sheriff, however, has had enough of “the reverend” and his race-baiting ways.
As The Western Journal reported:
A Florida sheriff on Monday suggested Rev. Al Sharpton either keep quiet, go away or do both.
On Sunday, Sharpton criticized Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri during a rally for a man killed on July 19 in a case that has riveted attention on Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law.
On that day, Markeis McGlockton, who is black, was shot by Michael Drejka, who is white, in Clearwater. Drejka told police he feared for his life, and police did not arrest him.
“The law in the state of Florida today is that people have the right to stand their ground, and have a right to defend themselves when they believe they are in harm,” Gualtieri said, WTSP reported.
But on Sunday, the New York City-based Sharpton appeared in Clearwater to attack Gualtieri’s actions.
“This case should not be tried in a parking lot of a convenience store,” Sharpton said, as reported by WTVT. “It should be tried in a courtroom.”
“Lock him (Drejka) up or turn in your badge,” Sharpton said, directly challenging Gualtieri.
Gualtieri responded on Monday in no uncertain terms to Sharpton’s comments.
“It’s a bunch of rhetoric. I don’t pay much attention to it, to tell you the truth. I wasn’t there, and I don’t really care what Al Sharpton has to say,” Gualtieri said.
He then shared this message for Sharpton: “Go back to New York. Mind your own business.”
A Sharpton spokesman compared Gualtieri’s comments to “those of sheriffs out of the 1960s that used to call civil rights leaders invited in by victims, ‘outside agitators,’” according to the Tampa Bay Times.
See? For Sharpton every day is the 1960s. But what do you expect from a former FBI informant who’s only real job has been as a professional race-baiter?
