The often times controversial Al Sharpton, who spews bigotry and leftist Anti-White and Anti-Trump rhetoric in order to line his own pockets while claiming to be a pacifist, has proven that those claims are untrue when it comes to his own family.
Apparently Al Sharpton's 30 year old daughter Ashely didn't get the memo about peaceful activism, after police say that Miss Sharpton violently assaulted a New York taxi driver.
The incident occurred while Ashely Sharpton was celebrating her birthday, in midtown Manhattan.

Witnesses say that Miss Sharpton and two if her friends hailed a cab driver, while believed to have possibly been intoxicated, it at bare minimum simply erratic.
Once the trio hopped inside the back of the taxi, the driver claims all three gave him different destinations which kept changing, at which point he became frustrated and stopped the cab.
Authorities say that's when the taxi driver said he wasn't leaving until the group decided where they were going.
At that time, Miss Sharpton who was sitting beside the cab driver, grabbed the man's keys out of the ignition and hopped out of the taxi.
Clearly erratic, if not intoxicated, she had just committed assault and had endangered the life of the cab driver who had no idea what she may try and do next.
Law enforcement says the driver of the taxi got out and told Miss Sharpton, “Give me my keys back.”
Ashely Sharpton however allegedly became violent at that point, spitting on him and saying “I don't have your damn keys” before tossing them off into the distance.
The incident became even more serious at that point, on the intersection of West 4th Street and Ninth Avenue, as some media outlets are reporting that one of her friends inside the cab filmed the entire incident.
The video clearly shows that Miss Sharpton then began swinging her arms at the driver and shoving him and one point even smacking him. Civil disobedience without violence is clearly not her prerogative.
While we cannot confirm that the Miss Sharpton was indeed intoxicated as per reports she was definitely erratic and the incident was captured on film, it is said that Miss Sharpton then fled the scene.
Two hours later police caught up to her, and took her under arrest in handcuffs on her birthday.
It's believed Miss Sharpton was released with a court date, but it's costing her father and herself another blow to their hypocrisy filled reputations.

“Happy Birthday to my youngest, Ashley,” Reverend Al Sharpton wrote on Twitter. “A strong black woman and committed activist. So proud to be your Dad.”
Happy Birthday indeed, and maybe someone should remind them that cab lives matter.
