So, About Those Companies Funding Al Sharpton’s National Action Network…
Written by Mockarena
A few days ago, Daisy wrote about a bunch of companies who give money to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN), so that our readers could make informed choices about where they spend their hard-earned money. She used less-than-flattering terms to describe how she felt about those companies for supporting a cretin like Al Sharpton in any way.
Some folks wrote to us complaining that we were being too hard on those companies, because they’d been bullied into donating to Sharpton’s organization – threatened of being labeled racist if they didn’t.
I’m not sure why that’s supposed to make us feel better about those companies. You’re telling me freaking Wal-Mart, Fed-Ex, Pepsi, Pfizer, and the others are afraid of AL SHARPTON? Seriously?
Anyway, according to this, Sharpton accepts “hush money” from these companies to “silence the ongoing cries of racism.” And according to the same link, these companies contact Sharpton to help them “polish their image” so that they don’t appear racist. Once he’s got his claws in them, he asks for more and more money to keep his whole scam going. And even though he apparently is ROLLING in cash as a result, he still can’t manage to pay his own taxes.
According to the National Legal and Policy Center’s chairman, “Sharpton specializes in shakedowns.”
So yeah, if you’re one of those people who were upset that we called out those companies, because they’re being extorted by Al Sharpton – WHY are you ok with companies like these allowing themselves to be extorted by Al Sharpton? If I were the CEO of Wal-mart or Fed-Ex or any of these corporations, I’d be taking out full-page ads in the New York Times to explain exactly what’s happening. It’s time that Sharpton stopped being allowed to have so much unwarranted power. And multi billion dollar companies who are afraid he’s going to call them raaaaaacist are freaking cowardly. Unless Sharpton has video of all of these CEOs attending Ku Klux Klan meetings, these CEOs need to man up and call this tax-evading, race-baiting jerk out once and for all.
