Al Sharpton: The Greatest Snitch

Al Sharpton: The Greatest Snitch
C. Stiles

No one should be surprised that Al Sharpton was a snitch for the federal government. Last week, the Smoking Gun unearthed damning evidence of the reverend's role as a mob rat during the '80s. The exposé detailed how Sharpton became the FBI's "CI-7," toting around a special briefcase outfitted with a secret recording device that caught several wiseguys from the Genovese crime family. He flipped when FBI agents showed Sharpton a videotape of him talking about doing a cocaine deal with an undercover agent posing as a South American kingpin.

Initially, Sharpton denied it. Now he's claiming he cooperated with the FBI only because his life had been threatened by gangsters. Yeah, right. Sharpton has been bamboozling African-Americans ever since he joined the civil rights movement. He's always been a government double agent, pretending to help black people when he really does nothing for them. Sharpton is a great showman who can get cameras to follow him around. His job is to fool African-Americans into thinking someone is fighting for them.

When he came to Florida following the murder of Trayvon Martin, Sharpton vowed he would lead the fight to repeal Stand Your Ground. Two years after the boy's death, the law is still on the books. He promised to move to Chicago's worst neighborhoods to fight the gun violence killing so many black people in the Windy City. According to a recent Chicago Tribune article, Sharpton leased an apartment in an affluent part of town and stays there only once a week.

I've been dealing with two-faced activists like Sharpton since I was an underground DJ in the early '80s. When I was throwing a party at a park in Liberty City, a riot broke out after a white police officer yelled "niggers" at us because we were playing music too loudly. A few days later, Rev. Willie Sims came by, acting like he wanted to help us resolve the situation. He was really a flunky, sent by the City of Miami to keep the black people in check.

That's what Sharpton does. He's the "political activist" who goes to whichever city or state is having a "black" disturbance to tell African-Americans what they want to hear. But he never really does anything except talk.

For being a government stool pigeon, Sharpton has gotten two book deals, a host spot on a national news talk show, and fame. He's the greatest snitch ever.

I was very disturbed that The DREAM DEFENDERS were not permitted to speak at the 50th Anniversary of The speech.

I resided in Metro-Dade from 1985-1998 and saw and experienced the bait and switch practices of those I refer to as ALEC KOCH Political Christians. I knew and with regret still know these kinds of people exists as gatekeepers reliant upon some overseer status for their daily bread. AND they are entrenched still in local government and civic organizations across the nation.

It falls then to those like myself, beneficiaries of the dream to stand and count our blessings aloud.

HERE I GO!

My Uncle Luke would bring his deejay set to Aswan Road Projects to entertain Our Families. He would gift school supplies and food to all in need, free jerseys for children excelling in school, gift certificates for parents and guardians to treat themselves. These community socials did wonders for moral and show U.S. the world of possibilities that can be acheived.

My mother, a good christian woman enjoyed listening as I played my Luke Records until Geraldo Riviera in the most destructive ratings grab played ADULT/MATURE CLUB ONLY Parental Advisory stickered versions of Uncle Luke's work in a clear attempt to cash in.

Not only did my mother flip and refuse to hear that the same young man she had seen deejaying in our neighborhood was responsible enough to not play ADULT versions at teen disco gatherings but a period of quashing artistic voices in Metro-Dade ensued.

This period began with ALEC KOCH Political Christians in their capacities in local government revoking the licenses of any small business people selling music. Overnight, our economic base tanked. Ordinary Men and Women no longer able to make a living were then threatened with incarceration if they did not testify that Our Uncle Luke was a scourge vandalizing South Florida society, sense of decency and moral code.

The impact of this period of McCarthy-ism is still being felt across our nation in negative ways.

The Valor of Our Uncle Luke in the midst of that $hit storm is also growing across PLANET ROCK and Amma end with this tiny example.

CAMPBELL v MacCauffie Music had supporting friends of the court briefs from Eagle Forum, Moral Majority and Peter Jennings, may He RIParadise, then of ABC News.

Whenever I watch Friday and Cube says, hoes need theme music, I smile knowing as an Artiste from Miami, prior to Our Uncle Luke none of U.S. had any protection from the United States constitution. (see aclu constitution free zones)

After, Ms. Debbie gave me the fax showing the SCOTUS opinion in favor of ALL BANNED IN THE U.S.A. where I was sitting in Uncle Luke's warehouse records manufacturing yard, I knew that if anyone tried to stop my flow, I was now able to take Our Uncle Luke to court with me and that mine would be A STAND on solid GROUND!

(there's lots a hoes in this house. ain't a case trying to get heard in CA, NY and DC district courts involving civil rights that don't cite LUKE DAH MAN!)

The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close bad cases.

The FBI and DEA where using corrupt police, gang members and mob to commit murders for them.

There was a short time in their respective criminal careers that Kuklinski, Pitera, Eppolito and Caracappa where doing hits for corrupt FBI and DEA.

You annoy the shit out of me most of the time but you are right on point about Sharpton.  Good for you...

Interesting piece! If you like gangster and thriller books, check out my new novel, The Last Gangster: Up Against It, about the last surviving participant in Al Capone’s St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, and two hitmen locked in an epically bloody collision course, available on Amazon for $3. – Nick West
