On the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., having nothing better to do, the so-called Rev. Al Sharpton said President Trump is “undoing” the work of the civil rights leader.
In an op-ed published Wednesday by BuzzFeed News, Sharpton warned that King’s legacy was at risk of being dismantled by the Trump administration.
“Today, 50 years after his life was so viciously and violently cut short, we have someone in the White House who is committed to undoing all that Dr. King fought for,” Sharpton wrote.
He said the White House is taking actions to curb the voting rights of minorities and has focused on “creating new ways to suppress the vote rather than protect it.”
Interestingly enough, Trump has sought to protect and enhance voting rights of black Americans by attempting to make it more difficult for illegal aliens to vote, which waters down the voice of citizens in America’s elections.
And he bellowed about Trump’s call last year for law enforcement officers to be “rough” on people being arrested.
Continuing his well-honed race-baiting, Sharpton wrote, “this president regularly uses inflammatory language to sow divisions, and his Justice Department is literally halting progress toward justice.”
“As we mourn Dr. King’s assassination, the greatest challenge we face is to maintain his dream and all that he and others achieved after so much sacrifice — including sacrificing his own life,” Sharpton wrote. “It is not enough to memorialize him; we must continue the work.”
Trump has repeatedly faced baseless accusations of racist behavior by race-obsessed Democrats desperate to paint him in a bad light in whatever way possible.
