Scroll down for updates…Guess who else schmoozed with Sharpton?
I’m sure you will be happy to know that your taxpayers supported Bozo the VP’s trip today to honor race demagogue Al Sharpton’s annual National Action Network conference with his presence.
Biden supporters defended the visit by arguing that it’s important to reach out to everyone. Including riot-inciting, police-bashing, lying frauds like Al Sharpton:
Vice President Joe Biden is traveling to New York Friday to address members of a national civil rights organization founded by the Rev. Al Sharpton.
Biden, who will speak at the National Action Network’s 11th annual conference in Manhattan, is the first sitting vice president to attend the Harlem-based group’s yearly meeting. Former President Bill Clinton gave a speech to the conference in 2007.
President Barack Obama has chosen Biden to oversee the enactment of the $787-billion federal stimulus package Obama signed earlier this year.
Some political experts acknowledged the Obama administration doesn’t share the same politics on race as Sharpton, but said Obama realizes Sharpton appeals to some. It’s why Biden agreed to speak at the event, they said.
“It makes sense to reach out to whoever you can,” said Charlton McIlwain, a New York University professor of media culture and communication.
