Boom: Charleston Just Shut Down Racial Hatemongers With This Message To Obama And Sharpton

A common fixture at the race riots of the last several months, Deray McKesson has chronicled his participation to the celebration of many of his 164,000 Twitter followers. Western Journalism shared some of his front-line activism in covering protests in McKinney, Texas, earlier this month.

As civil rights leaders converge on Charleston, S.C., in the wake of a mass shooting last week, however, many Twitter users are making it clear McKesson and his ilk are not welcome in the state. His antagonism continues to be criticized, often in posts accompanied by the hashtag #GoHomeDeRay. A man whose prominence can be traced to an earlier Twitter hashtag, #BlackLivesMatter, McKesson was quick to respond to the social media backlash.

He appeared on CNN Sunday to tell his detractors that he “wouldn’t be here if those nine people had not been killed.”

Despite the tragedy on which he pins the impetus for his latest trip, many South Carolinians believe his presence – and that of others seen as racial agitators – will only exacerbate an already tense situation.

A number of prominent black commentators were among those slamming the intervention of such a divisive figure.

Several Twitter users took the initiative further with calls to ban others – including Al Sharpton and Barack Obama – from demonstrating in and politicizing the Charleston tragedy.

WATCH: The Bold Black Pastor Who Called Out ‘Pimp’ Al Sharpton Just Doubled Down

Though he has reportedly gotten all sorts of grief from others in the black community of Hartford, Conn., for his outburst and accusation against Al Sharpton, Pastor Marcus Mosiah Jarvis is refusing to back away from his fiery “in your face” comments.

As Western Journalism reported yesterday, Jarvis jumped to his feet and shouted at Sharpton during a speech at a Hartford church by the race activist and MSNBC host. Sharpton had just finished leading a march against violence in the city that’s recently seen the homicides of five young people, when he took to the pulpit of a local church and asked the crowd to donate $100 apiece to his National Action Network.

That’s when the black pastor shouted something for which most others in the church denounced him and escorted him out of the sanctuary: “How dare you ask the people of Hartford to give you their money? You’re nothing but a pimp!”

Those words from Jarvis prompted Sharpton to do something that proved he was far different from most of those gathered in Shiloh Baptist Church — he reached into his pocket and pulled out $1,000 in cash, pledging it to a community memorial supposedly aimed at discouraging youngsters from getting involved in a life of crime and violence.

On her Fox News show On the Record, Greta Van Susteren asked Pastor Jarvis about his public denunciation of Al Sharpton’s motives and tactics. When given the chance to walk back his accusatory comments, the black pastor chose instead to double down, saying Sharpton’s actions were “pimpism at its best.”

“We don’t necessarily need outside intervention or marches that really are not going to produce any type of solid results as to fighting crime and creating employment and jobs in a neighborhood that’s rife with poverty,” Jarvis said.

Black Pastor At Al Sharpton Rally Doesn’t Like What He Hears — Does This Right To Sharpton’s Face (Video)

In his latest racially motivated march, Al Sharpton took to the streets of Hartford, Conn., after that city saw a recent uptick in violent crime. Flanked by local church leaders, Sharpton concluded his appearance with a speech at Shiloh Baptist Church.

It soon became clear, however, that the divisive figure did not have unanimous support among Hartford’s black pastors. One critic, Pastor Marcus Mosiah Jarvis, interrupted Sharpton’s address with a fiery tirade.

Jarvis accused Sharpton of being interested solely in money, calling him “nothing but a pimp.”

He wondered how a fundraiser for Sharpton’s organization, National Action Network, would actually help those living in Hartford.

“Don’t you come up in here asking us for money,” he said.

Sharpton responded by pledging $1,000 of his own money to a community project planned as a tribute to those killed in the streets of Hartford.

“Let’s bring kids and say, ‘Look at that. This kid died this way. This kid died that way,’” Sharpton said of the proposed memorial. “And if we tell that story, maybe you can get to some kid. If it saves two lives, it’s worth it.”

Some of the city’s faith leaders were obviously glad Sharpton brought the media spotlight to their community.

“He’s a national figure and we’re glad he came,” said Rev. Henry Brown.

Brown did have some concern that Sharpton’s visit will have a lasting impact, though.

“The question remains,” he concluded, “when he leaves, where do we go then?”

Sharia-Loving Politician Just Blamed Women For Causing Earthquakes (Here’s How They Do It)

Late last week, Western Journalism told you about the shocking question Al Sharpton posed to his Twitter followers concerning the deadly and destructive Texas floods. Sharpton was looking for provocative material for his daily radio show when he suggested that one reason for the torrential rains wreaking havoc and taking some two dozen lives across the Lone Star State might be “God’s rebuke.”

Screen shot 2015-06-02 at 2.28.04 PM

The Reverend Al didn’t say why he thought God could be rebuking Texas. But in a bizarre rant that could easily remind one of Sharpton’s presumptuous reference to the Lord and the disaster that befell Texas, a Muslim cleric and influential political leader in Pakistan — a man who believes in Sharia law as inspired by Allah and handed down from Muhammad — has blamed another kind of natural disaster on a very specific cause.

Earthquakes, claims Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the chief of Pakistan’s Jamiat Ulema-e-Islami Fazl political party, are caused by women wearing jeans. Fox News reports that the outspoken member of Pakistan’s parliament is calling on the country’s military to do something about the women who supposedly bring death and destruction to the nation because of their blasphemous wardrobe.

Rehman, says the Fox News report, wants the Pakistani armed forces to crack down on the jeans-clad “missiles,” as he called them.

“Rehman reportedly said women who are not covered like a ‘sack of flour’ are weapons of mass destruction to Pakistan, and that the country has an abundance of such ‘missiles’ in all its major cities. He blamed their appearance for Pakistan’s troubles.”

A strong supporter of Islam and its extremely strict rules for women’s behavior and appearance, this Muslim leader went beyond blaming immodest females for earthquakes, as The New Indian Express pointed out in its coverage of the cleric’s Islamabad news conference:

“Rehman then blamed ‘immodest women’ for the Balochistan crisis [a long-running and bloody regional conflict], lack of energy supply and the deteriorating security situation in Pakistan.” He also argued that Allah has been delivering his clothing-provoked wrath against Pakistan in the form of the murderous Taliban.

And just what kind of popularity do women’s jeans enjoy in Pakistan? According to a UPI report in July 2013, Western fashion was gaining traction among Pakistani women and drawing sharp disapproval from Islamic fundamentalists. “Pakistani extremists are increasingly protesting Western influences and have attacked targets seen as un-Islamic or immodest although, so far, threats against women because of fashionable clothing have been only verbal.”

And as of this writing, the Muslim politician’s call for the military to honor Allah’s will and act as “fashion police” hasn’t resulted in any reports that arms will be taken up to make sure women’s legs are properly covered.

What Al Sharpton Just Wrote About Horrific Texas Flooding Causes Tsunami Of Outrage

The wrath of God? That explains why Texas has been so hard hit by deadly, devastating floods and tornadoes?

As Western Journalism reported on Wednesday, some Muslims took to Twitter to blame the horrific weather in Texas on the recent contest to draw Muhammad — an event that, as these finger-wagging Islamic critics claim, brought the vengeance of Allah raining down upon the Lone Star State…literally. At least fifteen people in Texas have died as storm waters ravage a number of communities where hundreds of homes and businesses have been washed away.

Now, hot on the heels of the tweets suggesting that a vengeful Allah is angry with Texans, Al Sharpton has weighed in with his own tweet about God and the terrible weather that continues to wreak havoc and take lives. The Rev. Sharpton, in preparation for his Wednesday radio show, asked his close to half-a-million Twitter followers to respond to his question of the day (QOTD).

Without suggesting that the controversial draw Muhammad contest was responsible for “God’s rebuke,” Sharpton nonetheless implied that the horrors being visited upon the citizens of Texas were either the result of the Almighty’s admonition over some unidentified behavior or “climate control” — whatever that means (possibly some conspiracy theory about weather manipulation or an incorrect reference to “climate change”).

Twitter users were quick to react, providing their own “rebuke” to the Baptist minister who so often preaches a racially charged sermon of divisiveness.
