If you condemn Trump’s pick of Steve Bannon, condemn Al Sharpton’s protest on Trump’s inauguration

If you condemn Trump’s pick of Bannon, condemn Sharpton’s protest on Trump’s inauguration.  Here is why.  The unending rants from the progressive liberal left never ceases to amaze me. Ranting continues over the cabinet that President-Elect Donald Trump is forming. Recently the left took on Steve Bannon, the second member picked by Trump for a cabinet post.

Liberals, and especially liberal Jews, cried false claims of antisemitism against Bannon. Obviously there was no substantial evidence proving these claims. Mort Klein, president of the Zionist Organization of America, who lost several family members in the holocaust, says he has known Bannon for several years and he has always employed many Jews. If he were anti-Semitic, he would not do that.

However the same people that cried wolf with Bannon are the same people who support a well-known racist by the name of “Rev” Al Sharpton. In Sharpton’s early years he was a civil rights activist turned into FBI informant. He continued with his civil rights agendas that many times weren’t so civil. He is well known for his anti-Semitic comments. His continued rhetoric caused incitement between two store owners, one black store owner and one Jewish. His rants continued, even motivating one of his protesters to start a fire that killed several store employees.

Now we are in the year 2016 with a new United States president. And old Al is at it again with his inflammatory speech. Anti-Trump protesters turned into angry rioters causing violence and mayhem and even death. Now Al Sharpton is encouraging these “protesters” to join him in a march to protest the January inauguration. Why do I believe this is dangerous? For one thing, they don’t realize that there is a constitutional reason why America’s Founding Fathers set up the Electoral College to determine who becomes President?  This protest won’t mean a thing but could lead to national unrest and anarchy. More violence, looting, maybe even murder, and it should be stopped.  We need to learn from history that Al Sharpton’s protests are not peaceful.

As an Israeli citizen I as well as many others can tell you how dangerous incitement and anarchy can be. I hope this article opens people’s eyes to the dangers of the inaugural protest. People with their own personal agendas should stop thinking about themselves and start thinking about what is good for the country–a transition into a new President and administration that runs smoothly.

So with all of that being said, enough of the condemnation of what Donald Trump is doing, especially when you fail to look at the thorn in your own eyes. Instead, give him time and hope he succeeds in making America great again.
