Sharpton Panel on MSNBC Frets Over Trump 'Killing the Dream' of Martin Luther King

Written by  Brad Wilmouth

On Sunday's PoliticsNation on MSNBC, as Al Sharpton presided over a discussion of an upcoming march to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr.'s role in the Civil Rights Movement, the MSNBC host fretted that President Donald Trump is "killing the dream" after one of the guests claimed that MLK Jr.

's "dream" had become a "nightmare" for many.

Rabbi Jonah Pesner of the leftist Religious Action Center for Reform Judaism complained about "mass incarceration" and "voter suppression" as he commented:

We will be marching and praying with our legs because this is not a nostalgia march, right, we are marching to protect and defend the dream, which for too many people has become a nightmare with mass incarceration, with voter suppression, with people afraid of losing their health care benefits. So it's important that we march -- but that we march for the dream getting protected for the future, not just nostalgia for the past.

Host Sharpton then dismissed President Trump's decision to keep a bust of Martin Luther King in the Oval Office as he responded:

Sharpton and those like him, Jackson and Obozo and their ilk are the real NIGHTMARE for King and all who believe as he did. Sharpton and his WORTHLESS ILK are RACIST and BIGOTS that King warned about and was fighting in the 60's. In FACT the Democrats are the very people who King was fighting and would be still fighting had they not gotten King Murdered. SocSharpton has nothing in common with King nor anyone else who wants equality and fairness for all peoples.

This crack head Sharpton destroyed the dream a long time ago. I don't understand why they give him any news time at all.

Nice SG.

Al Sharpton relates the "I have a Dream" MLK history as threatened by Trump? The guy who created the Twana Brawley hoax and incited the murders in Crown Heights and at 'Freddie's" is willing to set his "content/character" against anybody not in prison? Sharpton is a disgraceful phony who would be doig time if not his capacity to exploit his race.

Sharpton is nothing more than a race-baiting, Socialist, hate-monger. If he were to pay his taxes and go back to his "church in the 'hood" he'd have his ready-made rabble-rousing minions howling in reply on cue.

All together now, "Whitey, baaaaad; Black Lives Matter, gooooood."
