I love the phony "Reverends" we hear about every day in the news, the ones who get all the publicity in our leftist news media. The ones who consistently display such good Christian principles. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Jeremiah Wright are the first to come to my mind. Barack Hussein Obama's 20-year long association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright came to an abrupt end when video surfaced of Wright's infamous "God-damn America" sermon hit the Internet. Some people have asked where is Rev. Jesse Jackson's church and question the source of income for his Rainbow Coalition. Rev. Jackson raises money to support his organization by extorting businesses. He threatens to bring hundreds of protesters to picket a business and shut it down until they pay him to stay home.
One of the most outspoken racist ministers on the airwaves today is the Rev. Al Sharpton. Wikipedia has a wealth of information on this phony Baptist preacher who, because of his raucous manner of speaking, has been a favorite counterpoint on television interview panels. Al Sharpton recently gave a speech at one of the organizations he founded called the National Action Network and finally revealed the true nature of his racist, anti-white attitude. Here is the video of the speech as posted on the web site The Blaze where they reported:

Here is a small part of Baptist Minister Al Sharpton's biography as it appears on Wikipedia.
Alfred Charles "Al" Sharpton, Jr. (born October 3, 1954) is an American Baptist minister, civil rights activist, and radio talk show host. In 2004, he was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. presidential election. He hosts his own radio talk show, Keepin’ It Real, and he makes regular guest appearances on Fox News (such as The O'Reilly Factor) CNN, and MSNBC.
Sharpton was licensed and ordained a Pentecostal minister by Bishop F.D. Washington at the age of nine or ten. After Bishop Washington's death in the late 1980s, Sharpton became a Baptist. He was re-baptized as a member of the Bethany Baptist Church in 1994 by the Reverend William Jones and became a Baptist minister.
His critics describe him as "a political radical who is to blame, in part, for the deterioration of race relations". Sociologist Orlando Patterson has referred to him as a racial arsonist.
National Action Network
In 1991, Sharpton founded the National Action Network, an organization designed to increase voter education, to provide services to those in poverty, and to support small community businesses.
Sharpton’s Tax Problems
On May 9, 2008, the Associated Press reported that Sharpton and his businesses owed almost $1.5 million in unpaid taxes and penalties. Sharpton owed $931,000 in federal income tax and $366,000 to New York, and his for-profit company, Rev. Al Communications, owed another $176,000 to the state.
On June 19, 2008, the New York Post reported that the Internal Revenue Service had sent subpoenas to several corporations that had donated to Sharpton's National Action Network. In 2007 New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo began investigating the National Action Network, because it failed to make proper financial reports, as required for non-profits. According to the Post, several major corporations, including Anheuser-Busch and Colgate-Palmolive, have donated thousands of dollars to the National Action Network. The Post asserted that the donations were made to prevent boycotts or rallies by the National Action Network.
Sharpton countered the investigative actions with a charge that they reflected a political agenda by United States agencies.
On September 29, 2010, Robert Snell of the Detroit News reported that the Internal Revenue Service had filed a notice of federal tax lien against Sharpton in New York City in the amount of over $538,000. Sharpton's lawyer asserts that the notice of federal tax lien relates to Sharpton's year 2009 federal income tax return, the due date of which has been extended to October 15, 2010, according to the lawyer. However, the Snell report states that the lien relates to taxes assessed during 2009.
With all those tax problems Al Sharpton should have gotten a job in Washington, D.C. along with the other crooks Obama has appointed.
