"Executive director of the National Action Network, a civil rights group that focuses in part on anti gun violence. She later co founded the Women's March on Washington and now has her own firm, Mallory Consulting. She explores her family's long history of pushing for change in her own visions of justice in a new book, State of emergency How we Win in the country we built Welcome to our body Politics. Jamaica Thank you so much for having me. Let's just dive right into your book, State of emergency How we win in the country we built. You dedicate the book to your son and talk about how your work as an organizer has put a toll on him. So tell me about Tariq and how you see yourself as a mother and as a social justice leader, my son and I actually are best friends 22 years old now. And at this point in his life Understands much better. Why I was gone a lot when he was growing up, and that's not unusual for busy parents and of course for our leaders. Dr King Malcolm X and a number of other people who are far greater leaders denied. They were away from home a lot as well and their wives. They really did focus much of their attention on raising their kids and taking care of the family and the household in my situation. My son's father was deceased, so I did. I never had that. On the personal level. You talk about your parents being activists and organizers. But also there's someone named Shepherd. Mallory, who you write about in the book, tell us about him and why he is an inspiration to you. One day I was in the Museum of African American history in Washington, D. C. The Smithsonian and I happened to be in one of those rooms where they show a film and I saw that they were talking about Three men who helped to free enslaved people in Virginia, North Carolina in that area, and so they said, Shepherd, Mallory and I found myself standing in this dark room looking at the screen. Like what? I had Never heard that before, so I Googled him. And the first thing that came up for me is that the plantation he was on and the man that he ran from lived in a place in Virginia that a river ran behind it called Run at River. Well, my grandmother's house where she currently you know where the house is. Currently, my grandmother has gone on. But the place that we go to still right now that we still own Is in running rapids, North Carolina. And so the river running river which is only about 45 minutes away from where my grandmother lives. It was clear to me that this must have some connection. So I traveled to Virginia to go find this place. And when I went there, I found out that Colonel Mallory Was the one who had slaves. Body last name Mallory on his plantation. I learned this story about Shepherd Mallory Being one of three who fled along, um with you know some other folks and made it to the Union side. And as I was learning that I became fascinated by the idea that whoa, I thought all of this time that I was doing this work just because and now I'm finding out that it's actually in my blood. And I'm fascinated by the idea that someone who is potentially a great great grandfather or something like that, to me is responsible for how so many people got free in that part of our country. You're talking about the Civil War era. The Civil War. That's right today. You right? It's no secret that America is at war with itself. In some ways, this era is is a bit of a proxy civil war. And you you talk about the vigilantes storming the capital building January 6th, etcetera. What's your perspective on January six, and what that says about how different people are privileged to show up? You know, you point out that if it had been an and these are your words, If it had been a nonviolent protest for black freedom and justice, it would have ended tragically. I think we're in the midst of a revolution and some people don't agree with me about this, But I think January six is a part of that revolution. And let me tell you why I say that. I think it is an example of the backlash. The pushback that happens whenever white supremacy recognizes that it's losing its grip on society. And I think that what we saw on January six is a sign that there is a true revolution War. Whatever you want to call it in progress. You have to choose which side you're on. How courageous you're going to be or whether you're going to dig your head in the sand and try to act like what's happening around you is not real. And so I think we're in that kind of moment. And I don't know any other way that this country has ever right cited itself except to go through the moments that we see. Are you hopeful? And I know that can be a simplistic question. But I think that different people throughout history have interpreted the same moments of passion pain with Moment of progress or a moment of destruction. So how do you see this moment? Maybe it's both I think that's the unfortunate reality of black people in America and probably around the world that we always take steps forward and backwards at the same time. And I think that's what we're fighting for right that we make so many steps forward that going back becomes less and less significant, but we're not there right now. We're in a moment where you know you can have George Floyd's trial going on and don say, right be killed right at the end of it. We're at the moment where you can have Dante right kills and people be so upset, hitting the streets protesting And then you can turn around and see. 16 year old McKay Bryant be killed and people say, Well, she had a knife. You know, that doesn't help our movement. You can be outrage when you see that it is a perfect victim. But be okay with the fact that a 16 year old baby was shot down after it's clear that every system Failed her right? And so I think that even that mindset, even that sort of ideology. If you will, that you have to be a victim that had your hands a certain way did the thing a certain way For me..

"Former new york city mayor. David dinkins passed away last night at the age of ninety three. Join now but the reverend al sharpton president the next action network and host of politics nation. Right here on. Msnbc and rev. i've met david dinkins in person because you. I met him through you. I think he was here to do at thirty rock to do an interview for your show. And i'm so excited to meet him. He was such a great man. What are you remember. most about David dinkins well. I knew david dinkins. Since i was a teenager when i was sixteen and started my national youth movement group. He was the lawyer that incorporated us and down through the years. We maintain the relationship. And sometimes i would argue would on call them names and one hundred be more strident and it took time to understand that. He had such grace even under the most tumultuous circumstances and i felt he should be more strident. He said al. You have to learn how to get the job done. Keep your eye on the prize. But i most remember. Is that when we were facing a police. Killing of a young man named ahmadou diablo. Who in the hell of forty one bullets was killed. Nine thousand nine hundred bullets for only gone in his debut. Stick in a key in the door and the police thought. They said they thought he had a weapon. He was just going home. They were looking for someone else and david dinkins. When we started protests every day we would go down to the police headquarters. The main one in new york and sit in and hundreds would be arrested. He called me one. One is at what time y'all have. The demonstrations was a former. I said ten in the morning. he's coming down. I said but we're getting arrested. He's out seeing the morning and he came down and went to one police plaza where he had been mayor and got on a knee way before colin cabinet. He took a knee and was arrested and had them cuffed him with congressman. Charlie rangel and himself and me and we went to jail fighting police reform that he started with that civilian complaint review board. He never left the struggle. He was not wanting to be loud and boisterous but he was firm and made real change happen. Yeah absolutely you know. We started off and we could see charlie rangel and james brown. Lots of people in the photos that are that. I don't know if you can see them. That are coming up as as you're talking and you know we started off by talking about the way that dinkins was taken out of office by rudy. Giuliani this rage. That giuliani stoked already. There in the police against what mayor dinkins wanted to do which was changed policing. I feel like we're kind of having a rerun of that conversation about black lives matter about whether or not police should be free to kill it will in black communities. He tried to do something about it. Wouldn't you take from that fight. Is it dispiriting to think that after great men like this have tried after. You've tried after we've had all of these movements. We're still fighting about this were you. Were you fight you win. You don't fight to say the fight is over in a certain amount of rows. This is not pro boxing wrestling. You fight to you win and every struggle has had long struggles. I remember when nelson mandela gain which you mentioned then david dinkins had me as potted group. That went to the un with him. And just jackson. All of us. And when i thought about it took nelson mandela being jailed. Twenty seven years after fighting many decades around the pon-tae. How can we complain about fighting.

Now keep fighting. He come down national action network rallies. In fact he was there just a few months ago. We had his ninetieth birthday there and we never forgot this. Gentle giant had a had a spine of steel. And he didn't need to be boisterous he just needed to be effective and he was the one that broke that ceiling and made people know you could be the ceo of the biggest city in the world and perform. He revitalized times square. He started this whole community policing and in many ways you are more than correct. Joy is almost like to study donald trump. You have to study rudy giuliani. They took credit for things then get predecessor did and they used race to try and rev up a political career that ended up embarrassing them at the end. Indeed amen. thank you reverend now.

Nothing wrong been working. No, there's not not at all. But here's the irony. She her party her policies do nothing but hurt the working person. And at this national action network event. What nobody's telling you except Fox News to their credit. Is there were some people speaking while she was there a little earlier in the day who said, quote, the people campaigning against the Amazon campus are financially alliterate talking, of course, about now we know northern Virginia benefited from in her tantrum throwing attacking Amazon, they packed up and they tucked Halen rented, New York and they're headed for northern Virginia. So I know Virginia and say, hey, thanks. But in New York, there are some ticked off people.

He told the post he blames AO see for spreading misinformation and helping kill the agreement with Amazon that would have benefited people in her home state. It was a disgrace I partially blame AO see for the loss of Amazon. She doesn't know what she doesn't know. And that's scary. We have to make sure she's better educated or voter out of office.

No, no talk about these thugs. These so-called black Hebrew Israelites and the other thugs who came in there. And then the lied about these kids. No, no, no, no. Go ahead. So you take that as a comes. It wasn't a pretty situation to begin with. But the president just let how he speed talks through that. Because CNN. Has anti semitism and bigotry all over itself. All over at south. It's dripping with it. Race baiting dripping with it. Go ahead. Poached this position and he ignored. So the president poached this position. He poached this position that is the position of a white supremacist of a racist. This guy is a nobody had a nobody show in the morning, but they think he's so good. They give him his own primetime show. So the president of the United States, ladies and gentlemen, poached this position. That's why the hats are problem. This is their narrative. That the president's are racist that his supporters are racist. This narrative over at CNN. There's no diversity of thought in this newsroom. There's no thought whatsoever. They sit there on their fat asses every day and every night trying to figure out how to trash the president and trashes supporters. It must make them feel great when Chris Cuomo's in the Hamptons when they're roaming around Manhattan. When they're getting a lot at some restaurant. Hey, that's our guy recognized this is their world. That's their bubble. Go ahead king. You have to see that for what it is. It doesn't make any sense, except the most obvious sense. He plays favorites when it comes to bigotry, political expediency and to bigotry, what are you a a talking clown. He plays favorites when it comes to bigotry. Really quick coma. You're pointing at yourself. You're looking at yourself in the mirror. I'm sure you do. So endlessly, I can tell the way you look into the camera. You're in love with yourself. You've had anti-semitism and race baiting by race baiters on your own network. You haven't call that a single one. The guy who you talk to. Don lemon. He's a race baiter something even worse. And there you are talking Tom. You've got Democrats going to that national action network. Which is sharpens organization. Do they call them out? Now, you know who works with sharpen his brother. Andrew cuomo. Has Andrew Cuomo called out Farrakhan? Maybe he did. I haven't heard it. How about the democrat party? Tummy. Did they call out Keith Ellison his association with Joe leaders and Farrakhan, no he was deputy, chairman of the of the DNC. Steve king is who continue to tell you about. The democrat party is loaded with these people loaded with leftists haters race, baiters, racists anti-semites, and it's getting worse. Tough guy. Chris Cuomo doesn't call them out his brother, his brother cavorts with many of them. Then Don lemon last night on CNN. This guy's a real reprobate. He really is in my humble opinion. And I say it would all due respect cut ten go. The maga- had carries a certain connotation that provokes a conditioned reaction from many people. There you go. A condition reaction for many people. Because you see, ladies and gentlemen, the make America. Great again hat is racist. It evokes concerns about racism. Go ahead for marginalized people, for example, Pocahontas, right? This was a native American tell me tell me something sour lemon. How about Hitler and Stalin? Those names does that mean anything to you on the president the United States called Hitler and Stalin? Does that bother you when he's mocked that way on your own network? When you and others imply if not flat out state that he's a racist. Pretty outrageous. Go ahead. They're chaperones should be keenly aware of that those kids should know that. And let's say that the kids didn't kids shouldn't wear those hats, then none of this would have happened. The black Hebrew Israelites wouldn't have attacked them. The Indian Americans wouldn't have confronted them. If they just would distance themselves from Trump, or at least, not vocalise it or not portray their support for him. None of this would have happened. The kids were looking for it. They were bathing everybody. Go ahead. They're chaperones should be shut up you idiot. I can't believe you have a of any kind urine idiot night after night after night. You're a race baiter night after night after night you gave up past antiques. I remember you gave a pastor antiga set. They're wearing black mask and black outfits and running around with socks Philip golf balls and Nichols and marbles beating the crap out of people. And I'm not just talking about beating the crap out of clansman beating the crap out of other people with whom they disagree, a militia. How about that? Don. Fraud. Angela rye on CNN last night. They just lineup these left-wing hard-core radicals pretend their journalists. They invite guests on because they know what these guests are going to say. And here she is cut eleven go. Like, forget Donald Trump for a moment. And just think about this symbol of that red red hat. That's like a white hood that red hat. You know, Trump's the grand wizard of the sixteen hundred Pennsylvania clan over there. On pennsylvania. We know that 'cause Hakim Jeffries told us. Go ahead when I see the make-america-great-again hat now. Chris I am triggered she's trigger. She's triggered. While if she's triggered then I guess, we should all burn our hatch. We should start burning books. Oh, yes. We need to make the nation safe for who is it for Angela rye. I feel that way whenever I see that CNN logo. I'm triggered like hell. I'm like the horse trigger. I'm triggering all over the place. Go ahead. Oh, trigger Andre. I think in a lot of ways our friendship has been compromised by the fact that you continue to support this, man. The one thing I will say to you to be absolutely fair is more than anybody else that I know on this network. You will regularly take Donald Trump to task. I don't agree with you on this last point. Okay. Well, then you see there's a little bit of hope for Andrei whoever that is little bit of hope for Andrei because now and then he trashed Trump. Go ahead. A great again hat is just as maddening and frustrating and triggering for me to look at as a KKK hood KKK hood. So he's a clansman. He's a Nazi he Stalin. And.

Trump only other option is a coup, of course from them. We'll get into all of that house short. It's the funniest story of ever. See it pays himself a million and a half dollars from his own national action network what for for the rights to his life story. This is his charity he paid himself from his own charity. Five hundred thirty one grand according to his latest tax filing five hundred. But the only get it for a ten year period of time. I guess he'll sell it again for a million dollars next time to the same people to go sell his life story. I I don't know. Why that struck me as funny today? It did. I'm glad you're with us. Oh, we have a lot of caravan news massive success by the President, China tariffs. I've told every conservative friend of mine that was most worried legitimately. So because about some type of trade war that the president was going to engage in or tariffs that he was gonna place on on different countries. I said, no, it's not him. It's a negotiating tactic. If you don't make them believe that you're gonna. Do it. They're never gonna move and they're never going to offer. We we have had horrible one-sided deals with everybody that includes NATO seventy-two cents of every dollar. That includes our even our European allies and friends, supposedly, they have one sided trade deals Mexico. Nafta Canada now China, so we're making huge progress which will get to also today we have a lot of deep state news. We're going to get into in. The course of the program will make it all happen. What do you say about a guy like President George Herbert Walker Bush except just embodies it's it's all part of. I mean, this is my dad's generation my father would bought for years in the Pacific in World War Two. And he did I didn't know is the longest lived longer than any president in American history. Only two families have had a father and son become president. He obviously being one of them and. Do you think of his years has ambassador to China director of the CIA eight years, the Reagan Reagan got me in love with politics. Reagan convinced me, that's why I became a conservative. And here we are thirty years later in radio am I twenty third year of FOX. It's amazing. How many people don't get how consistent I have been in terms of my conservative ideas and philosophy. Of course, you can't be intellectually honest and not at times change opinions on certain issues, which I have involved in overtime. I consider myself a little more civil libertarian certainly than I ever was before. I think the main things government ought to do ought to be limited in nature. I've always believed that Reagan always said, you know, government is the problem. I've always believed in lower taxes, free markets, liberty and freedom. I've always believed that every individual is brought on this earth is a child of God. Every single person has natural talent and ability and swear word education comes from. Then that is you know to bring forth from within. That's because God put it there. That's side. Boys believed in that we're endowed by our creator of our founding document. I believe that our great constitution. But government becomes more intrusive, more intrusive in and Reagan taught me something. I watched studied the eight years he was president is on radio just as he was, you know, I guess I started in nineteen eighty seven. And I I remember I was like, you know, here's a guy that gave us tax cuts and created the single longest period of peacetime economic growth in American history. He left the presidency have been created over twenty million new jobs. He literally in this happened actually in the Bush years. But as Reagan has said tear down this wall, and George Herbert Walker Bush presided over that, and you know, I look at the the wife of military service. I look at the life. Of as a businessman. I was watching forty-three George W Bush talking about his dad, and you know, he could have joined a hedge fund after college. You went to Yale. He was a great athlete. And no he wanted to be an Edessa, Texas and living conditions were particularly great. He said says mom would describe their living next to prostitutes. Apparently. I'd never knew that story before anyway on a personal level. I've just gotten to know him, and I know the family, and I've known them for many years and just they represent everything that is good and decent. And this man spent a life serving his country. He just every in every capacity his entire adult. Life was about service for others. And he did it with a passion. There's only a couple of years ago, and you know, he's still jumping out of airplanes. And you know, at the end of the day for any of us when that moment comes and we've got to meet our creator and crossover to that other side, I think all of us want to have lived life and the world is a better stronger place. The United States was was is better and stronger because of George Herbert Walker Bush, especially in his years as vice president and president. It wasn't without controversy wasn't without his own tough moments in life. I mean, that's really what creates character and people isn't it when we get tested, and then those routes inside us, we need to go deeper and deeper don't we otherwise we're just going to get blown away in the in the wind when the rains come. And it's it's not good. I did an interview with both forty-one forty-three I'm gonna airport so this tonight on Hannity, and there was a love between forty three and forty one. It was unbelievable. I went down when the President Bush, George W Bush, you know, invited me to was museum down there in went down on SMU campus. I forgot was father's presidential forget where I don't remember. But anyway, his dad and his mom with their mom had recently passed away as you all know Barbara Bush, and so I'm doing an interview just with forty three and forty one was in a wheelchair. And so anyway, we're about to do the interview. And he says don't no I wanna watch any case literally sat and watched the interview with his son couldn't be more proud, and I won't give it away. But what when I interviewed them together. You know, and George Bush said this in an interview that I saw last night over the weekend. When I was watching maybe a sixty minutes last night. And he said, you know, told the story when he first went into the Oval Office and his dad called him, Mr President, and how his father really let him be his own, man. And he said just love him and be a dad. It's just very touching. And it just it just embodies greatness goodness. You know, so many Americans never become famous. And by the way, you if you want it, you can it may not be all it's cut out to be let me just say that. But at the end of the day, whatever you do for a living. Whatever talent you have. We all have to serve other people in some capacity. I can't imagine anything worse. I said this many many times then what it must be like if you don't have a purpose and a job. In life. And you're not give him back. And I don't care what it is eight. Listen. I know we've always scorned almost some people have scorn on the left. Stay at home. Mom..

I think the audience deserves for to see do the math. So I'm only explaining the math formula that I'm working out in my own conscience right now. And what I? See right now in the final straw for me was the cavenaugh charade and character assassination in lynching. What I see right now is we are. We are now coming or at the turning of the tide people like me warn, folks, like you Larry about for many, many years is now here, let me offer another example. This is from yesterday speaking at the this is from axios speaking at the national action network legislative congress or conference Senator Bernie Sanders blasted President Trump calling him a racist, a homophobe, a xenophobe and a religious bigot quote. We have a president who is a racist. A president who is a sexist a president who is a homophobic and a president who has NFO and a president who is a religious bigot. It gives me no joy to tell you that. But it is the truth, and we need to confront that unquote. How did Donald Trump come to the presidency? Hostile takeover that he buy it out added the come to the presidency. How how do you get power? It's called elected office. Which means Donald Trump. How did he get power? He was. Elected who elected him? People people. What are the odds? I don't know. Maybe they're high. What are the odds? Bernie Sanders believes that Donald Trump is this person. But the sixty five million people who voted for him in two thousand sixteen are fairly well adjusted stable, and he's empathetic to what caused them to be so desperate, but to vote for such a broken, man. Like this any no way, shape or form would overly generalize. Calling his in believing that everyone or even a a large chunk of those who voted for Donald Trump would also meet this criteria. What are the odds of that? Do you think I would say with Bernie Sanders? I think he's at this point at this particular point, he's such a political animal he's ambivalent towards that. But I'd say his followers. That's a different story. This is not a minor figure. This guy got twenty million votes in the last democratic primerica is. This is a Nash one of the biggest national names in American politics. Today is Bernie Sanders. Let's say Aaron you're right. This reminds me of a conversation..

"Thank you so much Reverend. Thank you for your leadership at thank you to all of you. I want to start by some really good news. I noticed that you're wearing your purple tie. Right. And I'm wearing purple which is a color Minnesota because it's the color of the Vikings and prints. It is also the color of purple state and this year, Minnesota we won big in a purple state, and we. Not only elected our first African American statewide Keith Ellison, the attorney general's office. We also elected our first Muslim American woman to congress and Ilan, Omar. We elected our first indigenous women in the country to executive office in Peggy Flanagan that'll happened in our election in Minnesota. So I wanna thank Allah for his leadership. I've got to see him firsthand work on maybe not these issues that just get every headline. Maybe he does some of that too. But I got to see Reverend Sharpton work on some antitrust issues to make sure the antitrust laws and the way we handle these mergers allow African American voices and content on TV I've got to see him work when we had real problems during the downturn and stand up for this community. So I want to thank him for that. That's okay. And I wanna mostly thank your national action network for everything you've done to make sure that every vote is counted what happens when every vote is counted or we just found out what happened last night. Kirstin cinema was declared the winner in Arizona. Back. What happens when every vote is counted? And when you look at what we are dealing with right now in Florida. Where literally they are attacking the integrity of poll workers people who are just they're doing their jobs. And we once again say every vote should be counted. When every vote is counted, then it's right? You look at Georgia where the weight at one polling location was over four hours long in America today when elected officials opened the pulse, you look at the candidate on the Republican side there the secretary of state while running for governor held up the voter registration of fifty three thousand people including over in one case, a hyphen in the name will you know, what in Georgia every vote should be counted. And that is how our candidate can have a fair shot Senator Amy klobuchar. It's gotta happen. So I spent a lot of time on voting issues. I'm the ranking on the rules committee, and that's our job, and I also am on the judiciary committee. And so that is going to be a major focus when Reverend Sharpton asked about the agenda. I think number one on the agenda. Has got to be our economy. And then you can't have a fair economy for everyone. If you don't have fair writing X voting, and that means reauthorizing reauthorizing the Voting Rights Act, and it means passing my Bill to allow every single person when they turn eighteen to automatically registered.
