Which, I have to say, doesn’t quite break my heart entirely into pieces.
But it turns out that while Sharpton was perfecting his race-hustling street thug bombast, he was also in bed with some pretty shady customers — the New York Mafia crime families, to be more exact — and that, caught up in a drug sting [h/t JTT], he naturally did what people like him do: he turned state’s evidence and became an FBI snitch (a position for which, now that it has come glaringly to light, Sharpton believes he should be praised for, claiming that as a budding, race-hustling street thug, he actually went to the FBI on his own and volunteered his services to help take down a Mafia crime boss. Which, given Sharpton’s history of embracing law enforcement and acting in the interest of the Greater Good rather than on his own behalf, is entirely plausible. If you happen to be of the type who would follow or embrace a race-hustling street thug-turned-race-hustling street thug with political influence, a record of tax evasion, a history of White House visits, and his own show on MSNBC.
Now, what I’m hearing is this dual and incoherent spin: Sharpton acted for the public good. Plus, it’s outrageous to tar the President and Attorney General with guilt by association. Which is odd, because to believe the first argument, the second argument would actually mean that the President and Attorney General are being tied not to associated guilt, but associated public goodness.
That aside though, here’s the thing: Sharpton is a tax cheat and a race hustling street thug who has a history of inciting violence, and a history of not terribly well-hidden anti-white, anti-Jew bigotry. And now, he has a history of getting caught dealing with the mob, then being turned as an FBI informant rather than wreck a lucrative career as a race hustlings street thug with a history of inciting violence, evading taxes, creating permanent welfare clients, and hating on Whitey and the Jews. Which should be enough to keep political figures with any integrity from dealing with him.
Well, it is. It’s just that none of them have even a shred of integrity, that’s all. They’d suck the barbed cock of Satan if it would get them a vote, or a dollar, or access to the kind of influence even a third-rate con artist like Sharpton can command when we have a government as bloated with raw power and corruption as this one is.
I’d bet there’s a good bit more to this story–and especially regarding its having come out from under its greasy, grubby rock–than we will ever be allowed to know.
