The big conservative media lie of the day is, "The Obama justice department helped Al Sharpton protest in Sanford, Florida."
A division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was deployed to Sanford, Florida in 2012 to provide assistance for anti-George Zimmerman protests, including a rally headlined by activist Al Sharpton, according to newly released documents.
The Community Relations Service (CRS), a unit of DOJ, reported expenses related to its deployment in Sanford to help manage protests between March and April 2012.
The problem with what is being "reported" and spread around by the conserva-kooks, is this. The CRS went down there to help DEFUSE tensions, not "support" the protestors.
The Community Relations Service is the Department's "peacemaker" for community conflicts and tensions arising from differences of race, color, and national origin. Created by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, CRS is the only Federal agency dedicated to assist State and local units of government, private and public organizations, and community groups with preventing and resolving racial and ethnic tensions, incidents, and civil disorders, and in restoring racial stability and harmony.
They went down there to support the state and local government, NOT the protestors. So, WHO is being the racial arsonists?
