Al Sharpton: “Latte Liberals” want to defund NYPD, “but people living on the ground need proper policing”
What a world, Al Sharpton is more reasonable than your average liberal.
Rev. Al Sharpton had some harsh words for the elite white liberals who think they know what is best for the black community.
Sharpton admitted that New York City has become more dangerous, but also came out against the idea of defunding the NYPD.
When you’ve lost Sharpton…

The Hill has the transcript:
“We’ve always heard about the tale of two cities. On the side of the city that I come from, which is Blacker and poorer, we’ve seen more in terms of gun usage. I got a lot of attention when I did the eulogy for George Floyd’s funeral, but I also, a month later, preached [at] a 1-year-old kid’s funeral in Brooklyn who was killed by a stray bullet,” Sharpton said.
“Six people were shot over Labor Day weekend at a festival in Brooklyn, so I would say statistically we’re not much higher than where we were, but on the ground it is certainly feeling more violent, feeling more unsafe in unsafe communities,” he continued.
“We need to reimagine how we do policing,” Sharpton later added. “But to take all policing off is something a latte liberal may go for as they sit around the Hamptons discussing this as an academic problem. But people living on the ground need proper policing.”
We have documented the growing violence in NYC since George Floyd’s death in May.
Mayor Bill de Blasio and the City Council passed a budget on July 1 that cut $1 billion from the NYPD.
Shootings reached record numbers last weekend. Even victims questioned if the city should defund the police department.
The politicians blame the uptick in violence on cops not showing up for work.
However, former NYPD Detective Pat Brosnan said that it is the fault of the Democratic politicians. They cut funds from the police, but then disbanded NYC’s “city wide anti-crime” unit. The moves have allowed criminals to become “fully empowered.”
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
The mad dash back to the middle has begun in earnest for the Dims. Gropey Joe says Trump is the one who wants to de-fund the police and now Al “Resist We Much” Sharpton has discovered his love for law and order. After witnessing months of chaos instigated by the Dim leadership, are voters stupid enough to fall for their sudden race back to the middle? Or will their rabid anarcho-commie base feel betrayed and stay home?
Guess Al’s had his money tap cut off…….
Most Policies Joe Biden Suggests Are Already In Place In California And Its A Hellhole…
Yeah, this “pivot” is expected.
Don’t gloss over this quote: “We need to reimagine how we do policing”
Sharpie said one right thing but also threw in this zinger. It’s just as dangerous as “defund the police” because it could just as easily mean taking their guns away, or teaching them zen meditation or anything else.
We need to “re-imagine” how we punish traitors such as all the Democrats…..
When vile, Jew-hating, pogrom-inciting, bloodstained Al Sharpton comes across as the alleged “voice of reason” among Dhimmi-crats, you know that is a political party that has irreparably gone off the deep end.
“vile, Jew-hating, pogrom-inciting, bloodstained Al Sharpton”
Don’t go too easy on him.
Yes, the one omission from the BLM platform is any useful ideas.
I guess it’s too much to ask the Reverend if those Latte Liberals would include BLM demonstrators, whose stated goal is to abolish police. Not defund – abolish.
It’s time to reimagine what the word “reimagine” means.
The execrable al sharpton seems to be sending democrats the message that they are toast in November if they keep this up.
So Sharpton will be cancelled soon?
This is an easy one, entirely strip police protection from the rich areas of town, and announce it. You’ll have your funding restored immediately.
On the side of the city that I come from, which is Blacker and poorer,
Still got that private jet to fly around the world with race baiter al?
The sooner he departs the scene the better.
So I guess the effort to blame the burning, rioting, murdering, raping and looting on right wing white supremacist Christianist Zionist RethugiKKKans has been abandoned.
It will def. be a gun grab next. Stage is already set that cops will treat black lives as valuable if they don’t have to fear guns on the streets.
This has nothing to do with any democrats being reasonable. They’ve seen the real polling regarding these riots and it has them in a panick. Also, real people in these communities like Portia Bennett of Kenosha are finally speaking up, literally going off the democrat script and confronting these demented maniacs. I bet al sharpton has been told off by people in these riot torn communities and now he’s running scared. Portia Bennett video:
There is a deeper underhanded and subversive tactic at play here, Mary. Don’t fall for it.
“Latte liberal” is code to Sharpton’s useful idiots for “white people”. He is now trying to convince black voters once again that white people are the ones that called to defund the police because they don’t care about crime in black neighborhoods. This is just another way to attempt to pin this on anyone but Biden/Harris and their Dem network of governors/mayors/et al.
I can find plenty of pics and video on the web of organized black and antifa “protesters” running intimidation marches through streets and suburbs screaming about defunding or abolishing the police altogether. These are not the “latte liberals” Sharpton is trying to pivot towards.
In short, no he is not being a voice of reason. He is just attempting to carry more water away from the sinking Titanic that got cocky around the icebergs.
I’m sure Al is “reimagining” policing as Crown Heights 1991 with his private army, I mean lynch mob.
Unreal… these times.
So Sharpton now agrees with Malcom X that white liberals are the bane of black people in Americam one of the major arguments Jason Whitlock makes in his essay in this month’s issue of Imprimis.
They will pull his race card over this one.?
You are now on your own Sharktooth. You hid behind the walls of leftist ideology. Now you not only find they were using you, they will have no trouble kicking you out into the cruel world, that doesn’t want you, either. It’s going to get lonely, Al.
Any attack or “peaceful protest” in the Latte liberal community would bring an immediate cessation of funding for such antics. So the “Latte liberals” are safe mo matter what. The Rev. Al is squawking because Black people are victims, also black people are victims, and he must speak up or lose HIS funding.
Wait a minute…….Al’s starting to come to his senses.
Nah, come on man, you don’t need cops. What’s with you al? You sound like some kind of facist. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Some kind of facist. You better watch out al. The boogey man might come and get you. Have you finished that wall around your house?
I don’t think I’ve ever liked Rev. Al before. But, perhaps, he’s finally growing up!
