Al Sharpton, of the Just-us Brothers, rolled into Chicago this past Thursday for a town hall meeting to address gun control issues.
It didn’t go as Al had planned.
The audience was fed up and angry.
They weren’t calling for more gun control laws.
Instead, they were demanding jobs and railing not against guns, but decades of Machine Politics that have crippled that city.
Here’s how Breitbart reported it:
On Thursday, a town hall meeting hosted by Al Sharpton and the National Action Network to address gun violence exploded into a revolt against “Chicago Machine” politics, Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and the aldermen in City Hall, with panel and audience members calling to vote out their elected officials.
One 82-year-old preacher even called for “Tea Party” style meetings in some of Chicago’s south side communities such as Altgeld Gardens and Trumbull Park.
Sharpton may have expected a discussion on more gun control laws, but instead many in the audience of about 300 said they needed jobs and a solution to the foreclosure problem plaguing the city.
