While Sharpton has avoided paying millions in personal income taxes both to the feds and the state, NAN, itself, has engaged in tax frauds of it own, with no less than the New York Times reporting,
To stay afloat, the nonprofit became reliant on money that was supposed to go to payroll taxes, according to its financial statements. The amount National Action Network underpaid the federal government in taxes went from about $900,000 in 2003 to almost $1.9 million by 2006, records show.So, of course, Hillary Clinton of Whitewater, Benghazi, and Clinton Foundation scandals fame, went to scandal-ridden NAN to deliver a little address on race relations in the USA. You can read the full text here, and don't need me to guide you through the thick primeval woods of progressive lies and delusions that comprise it.
That said, as I always say before I go on to say that which does not need saying, let me make just a few observations.
Clinton's speech hits a remarkable low in terms of ethics and truth even for this campaign season which has been marked by some significant lows in both. Her speech, in fact, is worse than that; it is actually dangerous hate speech. If I weren't such a first amendment fanatic, I would urge her immediate arrest for spreading hate and for associating with a known racist and hater.
A few things immediately stick out as she relates the usual litany of complaints about race relations in the US. For one, she seems to think that race in the US means black and white. That's old think, Mrs C. Where I spend much of my time in California, the "races"--a stupid word--are Asian and Caucasian, and everybody gets along just fine. Asian Americans, by the way, are the single wealthiest and best educated demographic in the United States--"racism" doesn't seem to have bothered them in the least. For another, black Americans comprise a declining demographic thanks largely to progressive policies on abortion, which slaughter tens-of-thousands of black babies yearly, and to progressive policies on immigration which import hundreds of thousands of poor people from all around the world as part of a deliberate plan to alter the make-up of the nation. Yes, a large segment of black America appears mired in perpetual poverty, but, as you read or listen to Hillary's speech, you might forget who has been in charge in America for the last several years, and that overwhelmingly black Americans live in cities long-controlled by progressive politicians and policies.
In addition, I love how she takes a swipe at Trump for his "birther" campaign against Obama. She, of course, conveniently ignores that it was her own primary campaign back in 2008 which first raised the issue of Obama's birthplace.
Listen to the pandering, to the delusions as the Woman Who Would be Queen speaks,
More than half a century after Rosa Parks sat, and Dr. King marched, and John Lewis bled, race still plays a significant role in determining who gets ahead in America and who gets left behind.
There’s something wrong, my friends, when the median wealth for black families is a tiny fraction of the median wealth for white families, when African Americans are still more likely to be denied a mortgage.
Something’s wrong when black kids get arrested for petty crimes but white kids who do the same things don’t.
Something’s wrong when gun violence is by far the leading cause of death for young black men, outstripping the next nine causes of death combined.
Something’s wrong when so many black parents are burying their children.
Imagine if a white baby in parts of our country was twice as likely to die before her first birthday than a black baby. Imagine the outcry and the resources that would flood in to save those babies.
These are not only problems of economic inequality. They are also problems of racial inequality.
And it is time we face up to the reality of systemic racism in all of its forms.I particularly like her mention of black babies dying before their first birthday. Yes, they do, because progressives abort them. Suddenly she is concerned about saving babies. I want to vomit.
Do black kids get arrested for petty crimes while white ones don't? I don't know, and doubt she does either. Her comments on gun violence are pure madness. Who kills those black men for whom she suddenly has such concern? Since no answer appears in her speech, I provide it: the killers are other black men. By the way, these killings occur overwhelmingly in progressive-run cities with progressive gun control laws. Let's face it, a person, regardless of race, is much, much safer in "gun-infested," conservative Utah, than in "gun-free," progressive Chicago. The progressive speech-writers manage to avoid mentioning the big elephants in the room.
Her whole poverty pandering schtick also stinks of progressive deceptions and delusions. She makes no mention, for example, of the progressive-encouraged destruction of the black family. She ignores that black Americans suffer higher levels of poverty because, unlike Jackie Robinson who features earlier in her speech, many have allowed themselves to become wards of the state, looking to the state to solve the problems created by being wards of the state. As noted above, other "races" which have avoided the loving embrace of government have done well. She, furthermore, seems going back to advocating the lunacy that helped create the financial collapse of 2007-08, forcing banks to make loans to unqualified applicants.
That's enough for me. You can read the horrid thing for yourselves. It is revolting anti-white pandering, and to think that thanks to the way the GOP has been conducting itself, the dangerous, crooked woman who made this speech might very well become the next president . . . it's enough to make one despair.
