Al Sharpton

Marquette, MiDecember 22, 2014 – Protesters ARE responsible for Deaths in New York

Although the Al Sharptons & Barak Obamas of the world will publicy denounce the assassination of two police officers in New York… there is no doubt their words and actions led to this tragedy.

By siding with criminals over police at every turn, they helped foster a distrust of police, which has led to a hatred of police by those who blindly follow where they are led.  If you know ANYONE who was used the phrase “hands up don’t shoot”… remind them that they share responsibility for the officers’ murders, because they perpetuated a lie.

The fact that many of these people are to dim-witted to realize the consequences of their actions does not absolve them of the responsibility.  The crime was committed by one man… but he was moved to action (at least in part) by those who fanned the flames of hatred spawned by ignorance.

This parody song -Al Sharpton-   sums up Al’s Activity in a nutshell.

Dan Adamini – IN THE RIGHT MIND
