How bad does New York City crime have to get before the guy who personally instigated a lethal race riot is saying things have gotten out of hand? That’s right, Al Sharpton is saying we need to pump the brakes.

Al Sharpton, as our friend over at The Lid has explained, was right in the middle of the events leading up to the Crown Heights Riot.

He didn’t speak a whisper of complaint when whole neighborhoods were put to the torch in the summer of 2020. And why would he object? A racial grievance grifter like him had every opportunity to profit from such unrest. It’s part of his brand.

But could those riots have been TOO successful for Sharpton’s liking? Now that he’s personally feeling the pinch of BLM having their demands about policing being heard, he doesn’t like the consequences.

He went on Morning Joe and the story of a guy who casually walked out of Trader Joe’s with $150 worth of steaks came up, and Sharpton was calling on Mayor Eric Adams to do something about it.

“You go into a local pharmacy, a Duane Reade or Rite Aid, you got to get some help to assist you,” Sharpton said. “They have the little button, they get the buzzer and the guy comes over and unlocks your toothpaste. I mean we are talking about basic stuff here.”

Host Joe Scarborough pressed Sharpton on Adams, asking “just curious, is Eric Adams going to be able to do anything while he’s obviously surrounded by elected officials who want New York to remain chaotic?”

…“There are those that are concerned, including me, about overloading the system in the jails with petty crime, but at the same time, you cannot have a culture where people are just at random, just robbing and stealing and is out of control, and is put on the front page of newspapers, which only encourages others to do it.”

“In fairness to Eric, he’s only been there five weeks, but even as I’m fair to him, Eric, they are locking up my toothpaste,” the reverend quipped. — NYPost

Al Sharpton shared the clip on social media.

This post was not well received by another racial grievance grifter, the woman responsible for the ahistorical and discredited-by-historians 1619 Project.

She took to Twitter to blast him for it.

The creator of the controversial 1619 Project took to Twitter to criticize MSNBC spending air time discussing the shoplifter who was captured on video stealing steaks from a New York City Trader Joe’s.

“This drumbeat for continued mass incarceration is really horrific to watch. A person stealing steak is not national news, and there have always been thefts from stores. This is how you legitimize the carceral state,” Hannah-Jones wrote in response to a tweet from Sharpton, which included a video clip of the Wednesday “Morning Joe” segment. — FoxNews

Squabbles like this one only bring further attention to the left’s reckless disdain for the ultimate consequences of their policies.

And in an election year? The more time Coastal Cities give to thinking about the crime waves they see when they walk out their doors, the more likely voters there are to start asking exactly the kind of questions Democrats do NOT want to spend time answering.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
