Capital New York has a juicy story out on how the Rev. Al Sharpton blew his stack on Sunday during an address at his Harlem office to members of the National Action Network where he compared the young Ferguson and police brutality protesters to “pimps,” “hos” and to “Willie Lynch,” a reference to an alleged speech given by a slave-master in Virginia that says the “secret” to controlling black slaves was to get them to fight with one another.

Sharpton’s main beef is that this younger generation of protesters doesn’t seem to want him around. Can you blame them?

Here’s an excerpt from the Capital New York piece:

He told the audience about the police brutality march he led in Missouri last year, where younger activists demanded a speaking role.

Sharpton said he acquiesced, and told the crowd in Harlem today, “I’ve been meeting with them and talking with them since. And they were told, ‘Your problem is Al Sharpton and the other guys.’ Anytime you have movements, whether it’s in Ferguson, whether it’s in New York, whether it’s in Denver, wherever it is, when they got you more angry at your parents then they got you at the vote you’re supposed to be out there for, you’re being tricked and you’re trying to turn the community into tricks. And they are pimping you, to do the Willie Lynch in our community.”


Needless to say, the young Ferguson and police brutality protesters are none to pleased with the reverend:

LOL. It’s Fox News’ fault that the MSNBC host and frequent White House guest is the anointed protest leader of the protests?



Hypocrisy ‘gold’: Al Sharpton defends Obama’s ‘raise taxes on the rich’ plan 

Unreal: HHS secretary’s summary of Al Sharpton’s life is facepalm-inducing

Q-pac poll shows New Yorkers don’t like Al Sharpton, but you won’t read that in Vox, NYT, Mother Jones or the WaPost
