Longtime black supremacist and hater of white people, Rev. Al Sharpton, has promised a “season of civil disobedience” in reaction to the nomination of Senator Jeff Sessions for attorney general in the Trump administration.
Speaking during a conference call with other nonwhite supremacists Cornell William Brooks, president of the NAACP, and Janet Murguia, president of the National Council of La Raza, Sharpton said that activists have planned a march in Washington on Jan. 14 during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend to protest the Sessions nomination.
According to a report by the Black Christian News publication, Sharpton recalled spending 90 days in jail for protesting on U.S. Navy land against military exercises on the island of Vieques in 2001 when George W. Bush was president, saying that “civil disobedience usually works because it changes policy.”
“We’re not just doing this to be doing it. We do it because it can lead to change and, believe me, there will be a season of civil disobedience particularly around the Sessions nomination,” Sharpton said.
Sharpton said that “activists” plan to “visit senators’ offices” and “make some house calls” on senators to “make them understand they will be held accountable and punishable for voting in favor of Sessions,” whose confirmation hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday.
“Make them understand that if they think they are voting based on some courtesy of a Senate colleague and will not face a real backlash in their own states, then they have another thing coming. This is not going to be some regular ceremonial procedure that they’re going to be able to bluff their way through,” he said.
The NAACP’s Brooks criticized Sessions for daring to support a law in his home state of Alabama which required members of the public to produce identification before voting.
“This is not the kind of person we need to serve as attorney general,” Brooks said.
Murguia, head of La Raza—the major Hispanic supremacist organization, whose name means “the race,”— said her organization disagrees with Sessions’ position on immigration, calling his record “hostile” toward Hispanics.
This is a reference to the fact that Sessions is well-known for his opposition to illegal immigration and his demand that the existing laws be enforced—facts which by themselves are enough to earn him the hostility of extremist groups like La Raza.
Sharpton is organizing a “We shall not be moved” march on Washington D.C. on January 14, 2017, under the guise of his “National Action Network” (NAN).
NAN’s slogan is “no justice, no peace,” and, going by the promotional material being distributed ahead of the January 14 march, it is one of a number of organizations which is actively seeking a confrontation with the incoming Trump administration.
“With the recent election of Donald J. Trump, many Americans are concerned about voting rights, criminal justice (police accountability), health care and equal opportunity under the law,” the NAN march literature says, going on to mention Trump by name no less than 28 times in just 14 pages.
Among other things, the NAN literature says that the “United States will inherit the subversive policies of President-elect Trump, which have been created on an ideology of fear,” and that Trump is going to “destroy our optimism for advancement in democracy and civil rights.”
The fact that Sharpton, Brooks, and Murguia all represent organizations which are specifically racially-based and organized, and set up with the intention of advancing specific racial group interests, is always ignored by the controlled media.
