The following article, WATCH: 2020 Dem Looks Sharpton In the Eye, Says He’ll Pass Slavery Reparations Bill If Elected, was first published on Flag And Cross.
If anybody not named Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden walks away with the Democrat nomination for president, it will be a major surprise.
Cory Booker, Jay Inslee, Liz Warren, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Tulsi Gabbard, Tim Ryan, Joaquin Castro, and many others are merely wasting their time.
Former Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper is also running in 2020.
At Al Sharpton National Action Network convention, Hickenlooper made it clear that he’ll sign a bill that gives reparations to descendants of slaves.
Where will the money come from? Who cares?
More from the NAN conference, per CBS News:
A number of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates are set to speak at Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network convention as they compete to reach black voters, a critical demographic in the upcoming primary elections. Sharpton’s convention has garnered prominent guests in the past, such as President Barack Obama, Sen. Bernie Sanders and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Presidential candidates speaking at the National Action Network convention on Wednesday include former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, businessman Andrew Yang and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro.
Stacey Abrams, who narrowly lost the gubernatorial race in Georgia last year and is currently mulling a presidential bid, is also speaking Wednesday afternoon. On Thursday, Rep. John Delaney and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg are speaking at the convention.
Race-baiting Reverend Al Sharpton has made a lot of money over the decades.
He decided to pocket another $531,000 by selling the rights to his life story.
Nothing wrong with that, right?
Here’s the thing.
He sold the rights to his own charity.
From Fox News:
The Rev. Al Sharpton has found an eager buyer for the rights to his life story — his own charity.
The National Action Network agreed to pay the activist preacher $531,000 for his “life story rights for a 10-year period,” according to the non-profit’s latest tax filing, which was obtained by The Post.
NAN can sell the rights to Hollywood.
Sharpton, president of NAN, made over $240,000 in compensation from the group in 2017 alone.
Linda Sugin, a Fordham University Law School professor and associate dean, warns of “funny business” afoot.
Sugin: “When I see this kind of thing, it just makes me roll my eyes because there’s so much potential for funny business.”
Al, Al, Al.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) must’ve misspoken.
How else does someone explain why she thanked Al Sharpton for “saving America?”
“Thank you, thank you for helping take back America.”
“Uh, people are call— all over the place are calling me, writing, airports here and there— thank you for saving America.”
“I give those thanks to you.”
“Thank you for saving America. Reverend Sharpton, thank you for saving America!”
This is like saying Hillary Clinton made America great again.
