In the wake of the news, Retired NYPD detective Harry Houck appeared on CNN, and echoed the views of many Americans in blasting the man who, more than anyone else, is seen as fomenting race-hatred of police nationwide after the non-racial deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner:
Houck said the demonstrations have “all be predicated on lies,” and even went so far as to declare, “We have two dead police officers, and I guess Al Sharpton got what he wanted.”
Remember that, just one week ago, goons marching in Al Sharpton’s “Million Marchers” protest against police violence ichanted “What do we want?… Dead cops!” as they marched in New York City:
In the hours and days thereafter several police were assaulted with hammers, as the rhetoric against police was ratcheted up by Sharpton and his followers.
Then the unimaginable actually happened: two cops sitting idly in their squad car were ruthlessly executed by a man who declared in advance that he was doing this in retaliation for Brown and Garner:
It’s not the first time that Sharpton has been blamed for inciting people to murder.
Sharpton was a key player inflaming the 1991 Crown Heights riots following the death of a young African-American who was hit by an ambulance driven by a Hasidic driver. Sharpton called Jews “diamond merchants” with “the blood of innocent babies” on their hands. A mob subsequently attacked and murdered an innocent Hasidic Jewish student visiting from Australia.
In 1995, an African-American Pentecostal church asked a Jewish tenant of a church-owned property, Freddie Fashion’s Mart, to evict one of his subtenants, an African-American-run record store. Sharpton led protests crying, “We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business.” One of the protesters attacked Freddie Fashion Mart, shot several customers, and started a fire that killed seven employees.
It is simply beyond belief that the so-called “Reverend” Sharpton never did jail time for his part in those deaths. Certainly many people have gone to prison for far less.
But when Sharpton issued a Twitter response to the NYPD executions, it was not received well, to say the least:
I am outraged at the killing of 2 police officers in Brooklyn. That is why we stress non violence as the only way to fight for justice.

Given how so many people believe that Sharpton’s ‘anti-cop’ rhetoric had a hand in the vicious police murders yesterday, it is unbelievable that a national news network, MSNBC, continues to give such a vile hate-monger a prime time show on its airways.
