Diamond and Silk: Al Sharpton Is ‘Trying to Put in Voter Suppression’ Over Facebook Ads

Conservative duo Diamond and Silk (Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson) made the extraordinary claim that veteran civil rights campaigner Reverend Al Sharpton wants to engage in voter suppression because of his upcoming meeting with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

“Where was Al Sharpton and his concerns when things were being pushed about Russia collusion and there was no Russia collusion and no collusion with the Trump campaign,” Hardaway said.

“Where was he at then? When we talk about voter suppression, when we see these advocates and these civil rights leaders trying to silence people or trying to interfere with people’s First Amendment right which is freedom of speech and they are trying to decide who we need to vote for instead of letting the voters decide, that’s voter suppression.”

“That’s right,” Richardson agreed.

“It looks like Al Sharpton and the left is trying to put in voter suppression because they don’t have the advertising dollars to pay for ads,” Hardaway said.

“They’re trying to bully these social media platforms to stop politicians from promoting their ads.”

“What’s really infuriating is the fact that they feel like we’re not intelligent enough to make our own decision,” Richardson said. “Look, just display all of the options that we have and let us decide for ourself. We now have our own minds. We can think for ourselves.”

“We have our own mouth. We can speak for ourself. We don’t need Al Sharpton, these other black leaders, these other groups deciding who we need to vote for.”
