Let the Healing Begin: Sharpton Condemns MD Governor for Criticizing Incompetent Baltimore Mayor

Barack Obama, Rev. All Sharpton

We’re sure everyone’s comforted by America’s foremost racial arsonist weighing in on the situation.

The Rev. Al Sharpton condemned the governor for taking “cheap shots” at Rawlings-Blake. He also criticized Hogan, saying he is “a governor who’s never stood up and dealt with police reform.”

Unlike the great racial healer himself.

Sharpton said he met with the mayor Tuesday afternoon before delivering brief remarks to reporters. He said he wanted to come to Baltimore to say, as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once did, “to say the voice of the unheard must be heard.”

He also said he was “calling for nonviolence and calling for an end to recklessness.” He said he does not condone expressing frustration in a “violent way.”

The violence just happens organically wherever Sharpton goes.

“We will work with the mayor and others to make sure the young people understand we are fighting violence, not adding to it,” Sharpton said. Still he said, “Do not condemn people for their anger, do not for condemn their frustration, because you failed to do what is right.”

Who is this “you” he speaks of? The governor who’s been in office for four months or is it the failed Democratic Party rule in a city that’s seen one Republican mayor since World War II?

“I came to say that if you had heard us we would not be in this situation,” Sharpton said. “Now, listen and we collectively can deal with this situation.”

Now it’s “we” who’ll “collectively” deal with the situation. OK. This sure is comforting, no?


Oh, as if that’s not bad enough:

    “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”
