Sharpton: Rachel Dolazel’s Parents Distracted From Civil Rights By Revealing She Was White [Video]

This is vintage Al Sharpton – race hustler extraordinaire… don’t let that bothersome truth get in the way of social justice. Because in the end, it’s really not about race… it’s about a Marxist agenda. Deflect by blaming the parents who told the truth when questioned by the media – accuse them of airing dirty laundry masked as the truth and obfuscate the fact that this woman lied about being black for 20 years and then made up fake hate crimes to paint whites as racists again. In rides Sharpton, ready to spread hate, create chaos and preen for the cameras.

From Weasel Zippers:

Hey Al, the reason the parents finally told was because your hoaxer hero, Rachel Dolezal, was making up false accusations of hate crimes which media began to question, and it was media who went to the parents to ask the question, they didn’t affirmatively come forward.

Al Sharpton has some questions for Lawrence and Ruthanne Dolezal about why they waited until Friday to appear on TV to discuss their controversial daughter, Rachel Dolazel. Dolazel’s parents outed the NAACP local president as a white woman pretending to be black, and Sharpton was approached by TMZ one day later to give his thoughts.

When asked if what the Dolazel parents did was wrong, Sharpton first brought up the NAACP description of the story as a family dispute, but then said that Rachel’s parents were trying to create a distraction from her activism in social justice.

“On one level, you’ve got to say to her, ‘you’re misleading us’, but another level, mom and dad, come on,” Sharpton said. “Are we gonna have this dysfunctional family stuff play out and distract us from key civil rights causes?

Sharpton then brought up the fact that Dolazel’s parents knew about their daughter’s involvement in the NAACP, saying they betrayed their daughter by waiting until she became a center of attention. “You’ve got to ask the question, ‘what are Mom and Dad’s motives here… where’ve you been?”

Sharpton weighed in last night and defended Dolezal while still leaving the question of her “transparency and honesty” to viewers.

Dolezal is absolutely nuts and a hatemonger, but defend her at all costs, right Reverend? Sharpton has a very twisted definition of what civil rights entail. The parents didn’t seek to expose their daughter – I’m sure they are embarrassed by all this. They only said something when they were questioned on it. I’m sure Sharpton would have much preferred they lie, but not everyone is as evil and corrupt as Al is. Their motive was to be honest and transparent, even though it would have been much easier not to. I’m sure that’s something Sharpton finds alien. After all, spray tan lives matter.
