Sharpton unveils race-baiting scheme for increasing 2014 midterm turnout
Written by Allen West on March 22, 2014 Sharpton unveils race-baiting scheme for increasing 2014 midterm turnout | Allen B. West - AllenBWest.com
You want to know how Democrats plan to boost voter turnout for the 2014 midterm elections? Just follow the charlatan Al Sharpton. |
According to Cincinnati.com, The Rev. Al Sharpton was busy revving up the crowd Thursday night in Ohio to support an Ohio Voters Bill of rights. In typical fashion, Sharpton told the crowd at World Deliverance Church, Republicans’ efforts to try and suppress the vote “is all a scheme to disempower and disenfranchise the vote in Ohio.” And silly me, I thought liberal progressives wanted a separation between church and state, i.e. politics. Oops, there I go again, expecting hypocrisy won’t be a part of the liberal socialist playbook.
Sharpton went on to state (stupidly), “Nobody gave us the right to vote and nobody is going to give it to us now. We fought for it and we’re going to fight for our right to keep it.”
Sharpton is under the misconception that possessing an ID to vote is disenfranchisement. If that be the case, then the entire airline industry is based on disenfranchisement as well.
Instead of promoting the integrity of our electoral system — something I’ve experienced – he’s received his Obama administration marching orders to stir up angst. What is amazing to me is that the same liar who gave us the Tawana Brawley hoax is passing himself off as a credible individual. Are his followers in the black community just that delusional?
The amendment would allow online registration; maintain current identification options and expand them to include student identification; maintain the 35-day early voting period and forbid a ballot from being rejected due to poll worker error. The goal: End partisan input into voting laws. Riiight.
However, if the goal was to end partisan input into voting laws and to guarantee integrity, then why did the Rev. Bobby Hilton, president of the Cincinnati chapter of the National Action Network call Melowese Richardson to the stage to welcome her home. You all remember Ms. Richardson, right? Ms. Richardson was the Hamilton County (Cincinnati, Ohio) poll worker convicted of voter fraud for voting on behalf of friends and family –seven times actually, but who’s counting — and was recently released early from a five-year prison sentence.
Hilton and the National Action Network worked to free Richardson, saying the sentence was racially motivated. Also, Rev Hilton referred in his rhetoric to one Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter as an example of why the Voters Bill of Rights is needed. Hunter, who is facing eight criminal charges and is suspended from her job, recently faced a long-contested election over provisional ballots before she was finally declared the election’s winner.
I just wonder if the black community will ever realize no one is taking them seriously when they support petty usurpers and law-breakers. They do more harm to their cause than good — actually, they don’t really have a cause, but they certainly have an effect.
Why doesn’t the right Rev. Sharpton take on Mayor de Blasio who’s closing down charter schools in Harlem? Why not address the issue of school choice in the black community? Perhaps join forces with Senator Rand Paul and assess means by which capital investment could be unleashed in the inner city in order to spur on small business development and economic growth? Nah, it is better to play simpleton political games at the bidding of his massa’ the Democrat party and President Obama.
And I’m the sellout? Get real.

The Reverend Sharpton gave Melowese Richardson a hug.
Way to go, Al. This even annoyed some Democrats! From Both parties jeer embrace of fraudulent voter
: Even Democrat leaders questioned the idea of applauding Richardson.
"I am very glad the county prosecutor and judge reconsidered and got her out of jail, but she is not a hero," Hamilton County Democratic Party Chairman Tim Burke, who was at the rally, told the Enquirer. "What she did was criminal conduct and was particularly problematic because of her role as a poll worker."
Hamilton County Democratic Party Executive Director Caleb Faux, who was also at the rally, saw it as an attempt to portray Richardson as a martyr because of the lengthy sentence.
"There is some validity that the sentence was too harsh," Faux told the Enquirer. "But I don't see how you can hold her up as an example of somebody to be proud of. What she did was reprehensible."
Hamilton County Republican Party Chairman Alex Triantafilou asked: "How can you conduct a voting rights rally when you celebrate a person convicted of a voting felony?"
"Do local Democrats applaud a convicted felon for committing voter fraud, because they did at this rally," he added.
But Hilton said the applause had nothing to do with the voter fraud.
"We did not celebrate or applaud a convicted felon," Hitlon said. "We congratulated a lady with a health issues coming home to take care of her sick sister."
Both parties recognized that Richardson's sentence was excessive, Hilton said.
Richardson, 58, was convicted last spring of four counts of illegal voting. The charges say she twice voted in the 2012 election and voted three times in past elections on behalf of her sister, Montez Richardson, who has been in a coma since 2003.
Richardson was previously convicted of threatening to kill a witness in a criminal case against her brother; of stealing; of drunken driving; and of beating someone in a bar fight, according to past Enquirer stories.
