Rev. Al readies “candelight vigil” for May 5 in AZ – “FREEDOM WALKERS” wanted!!

LOL. A true race-baiter never misses out on an opportunity to, well, race-bait:




Reverend Al Sharpton, President of National Action Network, Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox, and other leaders, activists, clergy and representatives from over 30 community groups


Church Rally, Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church, 1401 E. Jefferson

Please note: After the rally at the church, Rev. Sharpton will lead a delegation of officials, clergy, activists and community members from Pilgrims Rest on Jefferson one block North to Washington, West on Washington to 17th Avenue. The State Capitol is 1700 West Washington


Wednesday, May 5, 2010 – 6:00 p.m. rally starts. The march will commence afterwards around 8:00 p.m.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is on a roll at Twitter on Al’s upcoming visit and wonders:

I see that @TheRevAl is returning to Phx on May 5th to protest AZ immigration law. I wonder who is paying for the trip this time?

Take a wild guess …

  1. Eddie M. says:

    The Rev infront of his name stands for revolting, his only god is money.

    He is a leader in search of a following, his motto is “anything for a buck”.

  2. Whatever happened to the separation of church and state? Actions like this should cancel their exempt tax status.

    What do these Reverends do not understand about “illegal?” Even bartenders can demand to see ID and proof before serving them. Perhaps it is beer and alcohol buying profiling .Buying a beer doesn’t compare to entering our country illegally, demanding hospital treatment, births and putting a strain on our schools.

    My father came to this country and it took him over a year to obtain citizenship. He did it legally. Why should, and pardon me, a majority of Mexicans and Latinos totally ignore our immigration policies? Either enter and join our country legally or go home.

  3. Rick says:

    Bought my Arizona state flag tie today, wonder how it will go over in my liberal work environment?

  4. Carlos says:

    But taking money for such things is evil only if it’s for conservative causes, a la Sarah.

    And ya know that floater Sharpton won’t EVER reveal how much he’s getting to make that “death-defying” march.

    Heck, he’s got more muscle protecting him than Duh-1 does, and they look meaner, too.

  5. Kate says:

    Let me understand this…Al thinks he’s gonna get arrested? Does that mean he’s an illegal alien, too? And Nan, too?

    Or are they spoiling for a fight? Looking for trouble Rev? I will leave it to the LORD that you apparently don’t know.

  6. nina says:

    Al Sharpton wants to wear the pink panties at Arpaios ‘s jail.:d

  7. Tex says:

    This wouldn’t be the same Al Sharpton who tried and sentenced the three white Duke University men’s lacrosse athletes for raping a black girl, who turns out wasn’t raped after all because she made up the story after being arrested and placed in a mental-health and substance-abuse facility for being intoxicated and under the influence of drugs, before they ever had a chance at a trial … would it? That famous champion of justice Al Sharpton?

  8. Sefton says:

    Hmmm, I wonder if the adoring liberal media is going to cover this from every corner and angle, with overblown slobbering bias?

    (just thought I’d ask the dumbest question of the day)

  9. NC Cop says:

    AHHHHHH!!!!! Thanks for that visual!!:-&

  10. Somebody explain to me how the “Rev” Sharpton comes up with the concept of civil rights for illegal immigrants. Must add this from MSNBC report;Arizona law makes illegal immigration a crime- Duh!

  11. Jo says:

    Hey, wherever there are cameras and a ‘ci-vil rights cause’ there will be that ridiculous, odious buffoon jumping out in front to grab attention.

  12. Kate says:

    What he expects is that a bunch of racist, homophobic tea party people will show up and spit on them….yell the N word…ooops…I forgot they already made up that scenario and it didn’t get much traction. Andy Breitbart still has his money out there for any takers with actual proof.

    My advice to anyone who thinks of protesting to just turn your back on them as they parade by….don’t say a word. Give them complete and utter silence. Don’t carry a sign.
    They would not know how to react to that. They are looking for some fool to react in an outrageous way. They want angry counter protests so they can engage and get arrested. Don’t give them that option. Silent prayer would be a good idea, too. Let’s all bow our heads in silence and pray for wisdom for these fools…might be a good way to lead into it.
