Rand Paul Meets with Al Sharpton on Crime Issues

Kendall Breitman, Politico, November 20, 2014

Sen. Rand Paul and the Rev. Al Sharpton met for a “candid” breakfast date on Thursday.

“We talked about his position on dealing with some criminal justice issues that I am concerned about,” Sharpton said in a statement from the National Action Network, where he serves as president.

“We also discussed mandatory sentencing that he and Senator Cory Booker are proposing,” the statement continued. “It was a very candid and courteous conversation.”

Sharpton and Paul tweeted that they “don’t agree on much,” but both were in the Senate Dining Room to discuss working toward reforms that would benefit the African-American community.

“Sen. Paul and Rev. Sharpton discussed criminal justice reform, demilitarization of police, and the senator’s recent trip to Ferguson,” Paul’s spokesperson Eleanor May said in an email.


Paul, who has talked about broadening the GOP’s outreach, has also set a goal to boost the African-American vote for Republicans from 6 percent in 2012 to 33 percent in 2016. {snip}

    Jesus H. Kryst! Do I have to add another fool to these two? Rand Paul is definitely NOT the answer! Even if he’s just paying lip service, this stunt isn’t going to win me over at all.

    • Sick of it

      Rand Paul actually seems to be gearing up to become WORSE than the McCains, Boehners, and Grahams in D.C.

      • Bryce Armstrong

        I think he’s aiming for the Clinton’s actually.

        • Sick of it

          He hasn’t been involved in a real estate scandal or murdered anyone yet.

          • me

            True, but he is a big whore….

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      Rand is truly a useless to white people.


  • It’s not enough that Al Sharpton is already the de facto mayor of New York City, Attorney General of New York State, Governor of New York State, Attorney General of the United States, and President of the United States.

    Does he also have to be the de facto junior U.S. Senator from Kentucky?

    • Tarczan


  • BernieGoetzFan

    Rand Paul = Jack Kemp with a perm.

  • Easyrhino

    I guarantee that if anyone in a leadership position for an organization that asserts the rights of Caucasians owed the IRS $4,500,000 in back taxes, as Al Sharpton does, that White person would be behind bars and not meeting with elected officials.

    • me

      It’s that darned ‘Black Privilege’, again!

  • superlloyd

    Rand Paul is the biggest, careerist political whore out there. I hope he doesn’t get nominated and if he does that he’s soundly trounced.

    • IstvanIN

      Not the biggest, but pretty bad.

    • BernieGoetzFan

      I hope the oaf gets a primary challenge in Kentucky.

      • He wants to run in 2016 for President and he’s up for Senate reelection in 2016. At this moment, per Kentucky law, he can’t do both. His people are putting pressure on the state legislature to let him, but it hasn’t happened yet. We should hope for the legislature not doing anything, forcing him to pick either President or Senate. Then he runs for President, gets single digits in every primary, drops out in March, and his political career is over. Then he’ll become quickly forgotten and a non-entity in very short order.

        • Pathfinder75

          How can we get in contact with the Kentucky Legislature to encourage them to stand their ground AGAINST the machinations of Sen.Paul’s shock troops who are pressuring them to change the law? And what strategy would you consider most effective in convincing them to reject such an odious idea?

          • jayvbellis

            These are excellent suggestions. We have to bring the fights down to the state and local levels where we do have good representation.

          • I wish I had enough contacts to be of help in this regard. The only thing I can say is that Kentucky’s current Governor is a Democrat, so he would probably veto a bill like this if it got to his desk.

        • He won’t be a non-entity forever. These weirdos always eventually resurface. Some possibilities:

          (1) Rand will “come out of the closet”, in drag, with his black “partner”.

          (2) He will be found dead of autoerotic asphyxiation in drag, in a motel closet in Tijuana.

          (3) He will acquire a felony methamphetamines conviction and be in and out of drug rehab for the decade following his release.

          (4) He will join Falun Gong, travel to China in order to make a nuisance of himself there – instead of here – and “disappear” while in Chinese police custody.

          Rand “Moonbat” Paul clearly has a fulfilling life ahead of him after politics.

          • me

            HA! I thought he’d die in a freak accident involving a home perm kit, a Mexican Chihuahua, and a misplaced bag of campaign funds.

          • Usually Much Calmer

            This bag of campaign funds. . . was it in powdered form?

        • jayvbellis

          But the reality is this Ron and Rand Paul presidential losing cult never ends. It just goes on and on forever.

          Ron and Rand Paul have been running for President every year since 1988. None have ever won a single state primary.

          Their cult supporters (all White) don’t care that they always lose, or like Chicago Cub fans, they embrace losing, makes them feel they are not compromising with… The system.

          • Pathfinder75

            You hit on a very important point.

            For two people who claim to stand in opposition to our overbearing and all-powerful federal government,they sure have demonstrated an inordinate obsession with seeking the office of the presidency and claiming those very same powers for themselves.


          • UncleSham

            Ron Paul never thought he would win a single election. He just used it as a platform to spread his message. Rand Paul, on the other hand, is a serious and ambitious politician. I think the father was actually pro-White, but was willing to keep quiet about that in order to give his ideas on freedom a chance to be heard. The son is just another run of the mill anti-White Republican.

          • me

            Maybe they’re on the Democrat payroll to siphon off votes…..

          • The Worlds Scapegoat

            Ralph Nader never won either. I voted for him in one of the elections. I think it was the last time he ran for office.


          • If my dream scenario happens, then what will probably happen next is that the aforementioned cult will get a new leader, just one that does not happen to be in the Paul family tree.

        • maxsnafu

          Bad ideas rarely go away. Neither do the people who espouse them.

  • IstvanIN

    Rand Paul proves himself to be a bigger fool and traitor each and every day.

    • phillyguy

      prior to the election 3 weeks ago, Rand Paul was on national television trying to explain himself on how the Republicans can help and recruit more blacks and Mexicans to their ranks.

    • evilsandmich

      I think it’s worse than that; I think his personal libertarian beliefs are closing in on cult-thought, a white Obama of sorts.

  • In related news, Rand Paul also thinks Santa Claus will bring him a pony for Christmas.

    • MekongDelta69

      Don’t worry. I just got off the phone with Santa. I told him that Rand Paul was a naughty boy.

      No pony for him…

      • Sick of it

        Something tells me that Rand would actually prefer the coal…

        • Garrett Brown

          Maybe he burns a third of that?

          • Sick of it

            Shades of Paul Ryan.

          • Nicholas I

            Slave Paul does what his K masters tell him to do.

    • A Freespeechzone

      Hell, Sharpton met with Paul to see if he would ‘bend over’ and ‘pony up’ to the negro community.

      Even if Paul bent over No way would Sharpton could deliver 33% of negro voters to the GOP; what is Paul thinking?

      Not bright.

  • MekongDelta69

    Rand Paul is as loopy as Fat Al is.

  • Rand Paul is proof that sometimes the apple does fall far from the tree. Ron Paul never pandered to fools like Sharpton. Rand shouldn’t either.

    If Ron was a libertarian purist, Rand is an opportunist, knocking on the wrong doors. Maybe all of Ron’s failures have sent Rand running away from his Dad. If so, he’s doing it the wrong way.

    And he’s either a fool or insane to believe that a third of blacks will leave the Democrat plantation. Whites, however, will desert the Republican party and a nut job like Rand if the Republicans don’t rein him in. He’s the type of idiot who if nominated would pick a black woman as his running mate. Mia Love, anyone?

    Rand’s policy proposals will kill a lot of whites as the police and criminal justice system turn loose black thugs to prey on us. Republicans need to shut him up or otherwise marginalize him.

    • Pathfinder75

      “He’s the type of idiot who if nominated would pick a black woman as his running mate.Mia Love,anyone?”

      I’m convinced that you’re 100% correct.If he tragically wins the GOP nomination,and if he thinks he can get away with it,there is no doubt that he would even go so far as to select Sharpton as his running mate.

      That’s how bad (and delusional) his pandering has become.

    • jayvbellis

      Nah. You are wrong.

      We’ve documented the insane, race denying pandering treason of Ron Paul for many years.

      It is pretty much the same with all libertarian cult members now, their treason gets them access to the cursed MSM lib media.

      • Ron Paul believes in the right of free association, which would negate the civil rights laws imposing forced integration on us. To me, that’s not pandering to blacks. I agree that Ron Paul is NOT a race realist or White Nationalist.

        • evilsandmich

          Libertarianism doesn’t work in a multi-ethnic society, especially one with genetic differences between the groups, therefore such differences must not exist lest their religo-political beliefs be invalidated.

      • UncleSham

        You’re probably right about the libertarians in most states, but not in Ohio. Our Libertarian candidate for Congress, David Macko, is more pro-White than any Republican in the country that I have heard. His stance on immigration is, “I don’t want to give them a path to citizenship, I want to give them a path to Mexico.”

    • The Worlds Scapegoat

      I consider Ron Paul to be a wet noddle. He is a political sloth: Moves to slow for any of the political predator to notice. That is why he is still around. He is neither aggressive nor a blithering idiot: He is mediocre. His son is an idiot, who does what his masters tell him.


  • LHathaway

    I said that 30 years ago. The GOP could get 30% of the black vote. It hasn’t happened yet. When they do, that’s how we’ll all know the GOP has a legitimate leader. . .

    • “The GOP could get 30% of the black vote”


      The black vote in national elections is such that it’s going to vote almost monolithically one way or the other. If the Stupid Party goes from almost nothing to 30%, then it means it’s going to get almost 100% of it. And the only way it can do that is to promise more welfare and goodies than the Democrats, and that will never happen for the same reason why I can never win a p—–g match with a drunk.

      I wouldn’t want to be part of a party that gets anything more than a fringe percentage of the black vote. Because I know what it takes to get black people to vote for you, and those are things which I know is bad for me.

      • LHathaway

        I was wrong. They certainly didn’t get 30% of the black vote.

      • Rhialto

        If the Repubs do enough Black pandering to gain 1/3 of the Black vote, they will also get 1/5 of the White vote. Combining this with 1/4 of the other Minority votage, the Repubs will become extinct.

    • Frank_DeScushin

      Wait, you think the GOP getting 30% of the black vote will be a sign that the GOP has a true leader? The GOP getting 30% of the black vote (which will never happen contrary to your former beliefs or Rand Paul’s current wishes) would be a sign that the GOP doesn’t have a true leader. Instead, they have the quintessential career politician who will say or do anything to get votes. In this instance to get 30% of the black vote the GOP “leader” would have to promise blacks more freebies and more unfair advantages than even the Democrats are willing to offer (hard to beat the Democrats at their own game). It’s those freebies and advantages that motivate black voters. Meanwhile, this supposed leader would likely also have to sell out white interests. Some leader.

      • LHathaway

        my comment at the end was meant to be a bit sarcastic, bitter perhaps, at a realization we may truly live in black run america (BRA).

    • evilsandmich

      Blacks (on paper at least) hate homosexuality, anti-marajuana laws, illegal immigrants and being hassled by ‘the man’. It would seem that there should be a political basis to cherry pick some black votes, but the less delusional realize that blacks would sell all there ‘ideals’ for an EBT card that they can hawk at the liquor store.

    I take some small personal pleasure in suggesting Amren restart Instauration Magazine ‘s White renegade traitor of the year award and making Rand Paul the first winner/loser for 2013.


    What will he do next?

  • Xerxes22

    The interesting tidbit here is that Senator Cory Booker is hanging with Al Sharpton. Booker is backed by the same people who own Obama. They are putting up Black politicians to serve as front men while their handlers, the real power holders, remain in the background and give the orders. That way, if Whites ever do rise up, they will turn their wrath on these Black puppets and not their handlers. Thus history will not repeat itself.

    • evilsandmich

      It would be intriguing beyond belief if the Dems would be delusional enough to nominate another ‘magic negro’; I hope Booker calls them out on that, I’ll break out the popcorn for sure!

  • MissaJim

    The only way to get the black vote is to give them free sh*t. Period.

  • De Doc

    Dream on Rand!

  • WR_the_realist

    Rand Paul, now that you’ve had breakfast with white hating Al Sharpton, are you going to balance that by having a breakfast with the Grand WIzard of the KKK?

    I wonder who paid?

  • MannyR

    I will get a date with Eva Green before theGOP gets 15 % of the black vote, 30%, ha!

    Jared Taylor is too cultured and decent a man to be counted as a counterbalance to Al Sharpton.

  • jayvbellis

    Please spread the terrible news of Rand Paul’s boot licking treason through your social media.

    If anyone was waiting for an example of a lack of judgement that makes RP unfit for higher office this was it. I can understand wanting to meet with lefty blacks if you’re a politician to try and find some common ground (you won’t), but picking Bullhorn Al as that person is a clear display of RP’s inability to tell the difference between what may be worthwhile and simply pissing in the wind.

    • Pathfinder75

      Yes! He obviously lacks the discernment that is vital for anyone seeking to become POTUS.

  • Realist

    “Paul, who has talked about broadening the GOP’s outreach, has also set a goal to boost the African-American vote for Republicans from 6 percent in 2012 to 33 percent in 2016.”
    That should work out well….then the Republicans will get 5% of the white vote. The Republican party is truly the stupid party and they can’t stop proving it.

  • meanqueen

    Ugh. Paging Trey Gowdy, stat!

  • IstvanIN

    When was Sharpy Sharp crowned? Does he get a box of government papers wrapped in red ribbon everyday? Does he have a weekly briefing from all the major government leaders? Does he have a Sharpton Imperial Household Agency to coordinate his life? Who the heck put this illiterate thug on a pedestal?

    • me

      The powers behind the puppets in Congress….them that pays the fiddler is them that calls the tunes.

  • DaveMed

    … And Blacks fall to the ground, rolling with laughter at what suckers Whites are.

    • WR_the_realist

      Yeah, I’m scratching my head over this one. Does Rand Paul really have the fantasy that Republicans will get one third of the black vote? Or is he just trying to get some cover for his mild objections to the way the Civil Rights Act took away the rights of business owners to run their business as they saw fit?

    • Melvin Bonzarelli

      Actually, from the blacks whom I know and work with, they all are well aware that Sharpton is a scam artist. What they love about him is how the whites, even the ones in power, fall all over him and jus’ be lovin’ him to death. Blacks think its hilarious. Which, for them, is about the extent of their capacity to think.

  • JR Kipling

    You cant spell LIBERTARIAL .without LIBERA-L.

  • Melvin Bonzarelli

    Whatever can Rand Paul promise the Africans that the Democrat Party hasn’t already? Food stamps, welfare checks, failing schools, violent neighborhoods, Great Depression level unemployment, 70% illegitimacy rate, murder by fellow blacks the biggest cause of death of black males – the list of achievements that the liberals and the Democrats have bestowed upon our grateful African population grows every day. What is Rand going to promise to top these – one thousand extra free minutes on their free cell phones? Food stamp EBT cards with a photo of Beyoncé’s naked backside printed on it? Maybe a short video posted on YouTube, and sponsored by the Republican Party, of Bill Cosby smearing butterscotch Jello-O pudding all over Lisa Bonet’s naked body and licking it off? Hey, that might work, come to think of it. Go Rand Paul!

  • jayvbellis

    Time flies when you get past 35. Seems like it was just yesterday that I was living in the racial, crime hell that was New York City late 1980s when Sharpton burst on the scene as the worst race hustler, demagogue , inciting criminal mobs of Blacks to do murder and mayhem and yes, I do include “murder”:

    For some of our younger Amren readers who weren’t around, particular our younger Jewish readers – Al Sharpton actually incited a Black mob to “kill the Jews” in Crown Heights Brooklyn, many Jewish people were seriously hurt and at least one Jewish person was killed/murdered.

    There are so many people in the USA who will never, publicly take the side of White interests, but who will at least oppose the worst anti Semite Jew haters, including Islamic extremists and criminal Blacks, Leftist Blacks, race hustlers like Al Sharpton.

    Here’s a link to the sad story When race hustler Al Sharpton incited Black mobs to “kill the Jews” in Crown Heights Brooklyn.


  • Lee_CPA

    By meeting with Sharpton, Rand Paul only serves to legitimize Sharpton.

  • Tully

    Rand is a idiot, he’s already sold out the whites on immigration, now he wants to kow tow Sharpton.

    He’s nothing but a political opportunist and sell-out who stands for nothing and fights for nothing except his ambitions.

    As far as getting the black vote. The blacks know they got burned with Obama and they will not GOTV for a phony white politician.

    And thanks to Obama, whites are in no mood for supporting a open borders advocate like Paul.

    He’s DOA politically.
