African-American Bigots

Commentary by Dr. Gerhard Falk





   The so-called Rev. Al Sharpton is the Democrats' David Duke. Like ex-Louisiana state representative Duke, he denies the Holocaust and insults Jews at every occasion. Sharpton organized a pogrom against the orthodox Jews of Crown Heights in Brooklyn which lasted for three days and was evidently approved by the then mayor of  New York, David Dinkins. In the course of that riot, organized by Sharpton, 180,000 blacks stoned and otherwise attacked the 20,000 Hasidic Jews in the area. The culmination of that riot was the murder of Yankel Rosenbaum, a yeshivah student, by Lemrick Nelson. Nelson confessed to detectives that he had murdered Rosenbaum. Nevertheless, he was acquitted by a jury which called the murder “a revolutionary act”. During and subsequent to these riots Sharpton’s followers shouted in the streets, “Hitler didn’t do his job”.

   Sharpton has repeatedly held speeches in which he refers to Jews as “diamond merchants” and claims that Jews are responsible for slavery.

    Sharpton also stood in front of a Jewish owned clothing store, “Freddy’s Fashion Mart”, and screamed anti-Jewish epithets at customers entering the store. Like his Nazi predecessors, he set up picket lines in front of the store. The picketers shouted at customers, “traitors” and “burn down the Jew store.” This was done. One of Sharpton’s followers entered the store, shot four employees and set  the store on fire. Seven employees died.

    On other occasions Sharpton has called Jews “bloodsuckers” and “Jew bastards” This conduct is replicated by the black radio station WLIB, which broadcasts incessant anti-Jewish hate in New York City, and the Amsterdam News, a black owned newspaper which does the same. This man is financially supported by many Jews.

     Another “civil rights” leader is Jesse Jackson. He calls New York City “Hymietown” , claimed that Richard Nixon had the advice of two German Jews, Haldeman and Ehrlichman, although neither is Jewish. He told MacNeil-Lehrer on TV that “Jews conspire to keep the black man down”, repeatedly shouted that “I am sick and tired of hearing about the Holocaust”, and rightly claimed that Jewish reporters are not objective about the Arabs. That is true. Jewish reporters always side with the Arabs against Israel (See the New York Times). He raises a lot of money from Jews.

     The Anti-Defamation League has repeatedly found that the black community is largely anti-Jewish and would, if they could, incite another Holocaust in this country.

     Of course, they are not the only hate mongers in America. Not too long ago, the comedian Michael Richards ranted anti-black epithets in a night club in which he was heckled by a customer. Richards had made numerous anti-Jewish remarks, including “Christ killers”.  No one called for ending the broadcast of “Seinfeld” reruns, which give him a huge audience and a lot of money. It was only after he insulted a black man that the Jews of America and all the media called for “an end of his career.” It was even claimed that he is Jewish. The truth is he is a “fallen away” Catholic and in no sense Jewish.

     More recently, the TV and radio broadcaster Don Imus referred to some Afro-American basketball players as “nappy headed hos.” This led Sharpton, the most vicious racist in America, to demand the end of the Imus show, the end of his career and the boycott of the station which broadcast his remark. The New York Daily News agreed with this, as did all the “civil rights” organizations in America, who of course ignore the hate spewed by Jackson and Sharpton day by day.

     Last week, Sharpton visited Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to discuss their views on his version of “civil rights”. It goes without saying that Jewish civil rights were not discussed. The Democrats don’t know anything about Jewish rights. Hatred of Jews is not on the agenda of the Democratic party. Their leader just visited the terrorist dictator of Syria, who screams for the destruction of Israel even as the majority of American Jews support the party that holds high the Rev. Al Sharpton, the Rev. Jessie Jackson and every hate monger in the U.S.A., so long as they are “liberals”.

Shalom u’vracha.
