The Lost Shark Tank Episode*
Did you hear about the lost Shark Tank episode featuring Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton?
Well, it was a great episode, and it began with Jackson and Sharpton talking about their race hustling scheme of the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s. This business plan (scheme) was to accuse a particular business, government, organization, entity, or person of specific or systematic racism; next, have your organization protest or threaten protest if the entity does not pay financially (and) or through policy changes. A Shark jumped in with questions about their backgrounds, including a troubling history replete with examples of false accusations, character assassination, and even antisemitism.
Jackson and Sharpton responded by pointing out that their credibility has never been the issue, only the publicizing of the accusation. With confident smiles as if giving a hopeful Sunday sermon stating: The charge does not have to be true.
One Shark interjected that the media could uncover their shakedown and expose their scheme. They highlighted how the new or conservative media, including books, articles, interviews, and even newscasts, have questioned both their backgrounds, false accusations, and personal wealth gained through these practices have all been documented.
However, the legacy news media (mainstream media), which dwarfs the conservative press in their reach and power, has and continues to embrace their racket, even making them show hosts and featured guests on news networks.
Some of the Sharks pressed, unconvinced, stating that Jackson’s and Sharpton’s suspect credibility would hamper their ability to scale this (extortive) enterprise. One Shark said: “You would need a national mass hysteria, something similar to a national Salem Witch Hunt, to successfully build a business based on lies.”
Another Shark exclaimed:
“A movement whose ideological founders have a history of making false accusations for personal financial gain. Not to mention that you’re going after the bedrock of civil society, i.e., law enforcement/police.”
Another Shark was exasperated, yelling: “You would need America to go crazy and deny facts, history, and statistics readily available.”
The rest of the Sharks expressed interest but just could not see how it could be scaled, concluding the Reverend's pitch: "You may be able to do this on a case-by-case basis, but it could never be widespread because it is an assault on common sense, available data, and history."
Jackson and Sharpton left Shark Tank without a bid but were not defeated. In 2014, they made their dream come true through BLM, which was based on a lie and became a nightmare for America; race relations worsened, and crime rates continued to rise.
People have been scouring the Internet to see this episode, yet no one has found the video. However, a growing number of Americans believe that something like this did take place because Sharpton and Jackson’s presentation was so spot on as well the most recent implosion of BLM.
As for me, I doubt if this episode will ever surface, but it is good to examine the substance of this show. Perhaps, it will serve as a warning of how fear, lies, and acts of violence can be used to destroy America and individual Americans.
