You remember Tawana Brawley: that’s when Al Sharpton burst on the national scene claiming that Brawley, a black teenage girl, was raped and beaten by a group of white men, smeared with feces and then dumped in a garbage bag. It was all so ghastly, so very KKK, that decent people recoiled in horror and got all mea culpa on behalf of America.
Of course, Tawana Brawley was a liar, a disturbed adolescent who invented the entire episode. And Al Sharpton ruined the lives of several innocent white men.
Off course, Sharpton, a liar and a sociopath, went on to lead a pogrom in Crown Heights because as we all know, the Jews are the whitest of whites, and much like the state of Israel, there is no downside to a good old-fashioned blood libel where the mainstream media is concerned.
