Al Sharpton spoke at George Floyd’s funeral today and put on another shameless display of self-promotion.
If everyone is not careful, Al may just sneak in and try to claim the whole movement, that has without a doubt changed the world, for himself.
That is the way of the hustler in Al, but truth be told even conservatives, after seeing law enforcement abuse their power on Trump believe we need to make some changes and all the way up to Chris Wray too, not just at the local level.
So the time is right but Al wants the credit or at least a spot in the history books and in his desperation, he decided to trash Trump to try to get it.
“God took an ordinary brother from the third ward… who’d been rejected and made him the cornerstone of a movement…”
“All over the world I’ve seen grandchildren of slave masters tearing down slave master statues.”
“You’re trying to figure out how to stop the protests instead of figuring out how to stop the brutality.”
“When there’s no way, the lord will make a way!”
“How are you going to scare a bad cop if bad cops don’t go to jail? Who taught these cops that they can do this to George?
“When they have the highest level of government that excuses it. When some kids wrongly start violence that this family don’t condone and none of us do, the president talks about bringing in the military. But he has not said one word of 8 minutes and 46 seconds of police murder against George Floyd.”
He went on to trash President Trump saying Trump used St. John’s Church as a “prop” for his photo-op.
“You take rubber bullets and tear gas to clear out peaceful protesters and then take a Bible and walk in front of a church and use a church as a prop. Wickedness in high places.”
