Everyone’s favorite cuddly race hustler is finally jumping on the anti-Confederate flag band wagon, hoping beyond hope he can stir up more division and put a few coins in the coffer along the way.
This time he’s targeting the military, demanding they remove “all remnants of the Confederacy” from bases around the country.
Yep, go ahead and give creepy Uncle Al a good old fashioned eye roll. I did.
From Business Insider:
The Rev. Al Sharpton’s civil rights group, the National Action Network, wants the US military to rename all of its facilities that honor Confederate Army figures including a street named for Robert E. Lee on Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn, New York.
Sharpton will be holding a vigil in front of Fort Hamilton on Saturday. Ahead of that event, Minister Kirsten John Foy, the National Action Network’s northeast regional director, held a press conference in front of the base on Thursday.
Foy said it is “unacceptable” that the main street running through the base is named “General Lee Avenue.” He noted Fort Hamilton’s slogan dubs the base the “face of the United States Army in New York.”
“Fort Hamilton is the face of the US Army here in New York and the face of the US Army here in New York is General Robert E. Lee,” said Foy. “That is unacceptable as a New Yorker, as an American, and as a person of good conscience.”
I bet this knucklehead really loves the current racial climate in America — something he helped create — because he’s getting a nice, fat bankroll off of it.
Truly, this man has no shame and no integrity or character.
You may not agree with the Confederate flag, but this is still America, and here we have freedom of speech and expression, so if someone wants to fly a flag, they can.
Including the military.
All of this Confederate flag junk is just a smokescreen.
People like Sharpton don’t want you to see what’s going on in South Carolina because folks down there are coming together in unity, regardless of color, and that destroys their narrative and threatens to undermine Democratic control of minority voters.
Maybe one day this buffoon will realize just how much damage he’s done and have a change of heart. I doubt it, but hey, miracles happen every day.
