"MSNBC HAS REACHED A new low hiring murderous Al Sharpton, confidant and friend of President Barack Hussein Obama.
Twice he used lies to stir up Anti-Semitic pogroms which resulted in deaths of innocents, one was in Crown Heights and the other in Harlem.
The Crown Heights pogrom occurred after a car accident involving the motorcade for the Lubavitcher Rebbe killed a young boy Gavin Cato. A riot was sparked after a private Hasidic ambulance came to the scene and, on the orders of a police officer, removed the Hasidic driver from the scene. Gavin Cato and his cousin Angela were picked up soon after by a city ambulance.
Caribbean-American and African-American residents of the neighborhood then rioted for four consecutive days fueled by rumors driven by Sharpton that the private ambulance had refused to treat Cato, which was a lie. Sharpton was fully aware that the ambulance was directed by the police to get the driver and scram.
Al Sharpton became the de-facto representative for the Cato family. During Gavin Cato's funeral he referred to "diamond merchants" considered a code word for Hasidic Jews. He charged them with shedding "the blood of innocent babies" told the Jews to "pin their yarmulkes back and come over to my house" then he continued to agitate the crowd by leading marchers through Crown Heights shouting "No Justice No Peace". Sharpton did not start the riots; he poured gas on the fire and made it explode. Stirred in part by such rhetoric, hundreds of Crown Heights blacks took violently to the streets for three days and nights of rioting and violence against the local Jews. Sharpton reacted to chaos by stating, "We must not reprimand our children for outrage, when it is the outrage that was put in them by an oppressive system."
A few years later, Sharpton decided that Harlem should be segregated and that a Jewish-owned store named Freddy's Fashion Mart should close even though it had been there for decades. At one of the many rallies meant to scare the Jewish owner away, Sharpton charged that “there is a systemic and methodical strategy to eliminate our people from doing business off 125th Street. I want to make it clear . . . that we will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.”
