The families and supporters Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin rip the shroud of “justice” from the “Rev.” Al Sharpton in James O’Keefe’s latest undercover project released Tuesday, confirming for the whole world what conservatives have known all along.
With Sharpton: It’s all about the money. “When you have a fuse that’s already lit, you don’t need to add no more fire to it,” Bishop Calvin Scott of Ferguson, Mo., said about Sharpton. “Knowing their history, it’s about money.”
With these words, O’Keefe begins his latest video. His reporters interview friends, associates and family members of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner to learn what they can about Sharpton.
Despite the “reverend” title, O’Keefe concludes, Sharpton is “more sinner than saint.” O’Keefe has been doing this for a long time — ever since he took down ACORN with his 2009 video.
We have a story we’re going to release this coming week and I’ve never thought about this before but I am afraid for my life on this one. — James O’Keefe (@JamesOKeefeIII) February 21, 2015
He reveals that Sharpton’s organization, National Action Network, often pays for victims’ funerals in order to give Sharpton center stage. After getting their loved ones’ funerals and other costs paid for, the victims’ families are told to toe the line.
Scott, who opened the video, went on to say that after Sharpton takes charge, he “incites people for the wrong reason.”
Troy Wright, the president of the Trayvon Martin Foundation agrees. He told Project Veritas that Sharpton wasn’t welcome at any of its events, according to the New York Post.
“That’s a sore subject with us right now,” he said.
Erica Snipes, daughter of Eric Gardner, told Project Veritas that Sharpton and NAN have tried to control her actions and profit from her father’s death.
Snipes said that Cynthia Davis, project director for NAN, “started attacking” her because Gardner distributed flyers about her father that didn’t have NAN’s logo on it.
“You think Al Sharpton is kind of like a crook in a sense?” the reporter asked Snipes.
“He’s about this,” she replied, rubbing her fingers together.
“He’s about money with you?”
“Yeah,” Snipes confirmed.
Project Veritas has now confirmed what everyone has long suspected — with Sharpton, the first rule is, “Show me the money.”
