"Look people, Jesse Jackson was not making a public speech or statement"
This is breaking and happening very fast. I don't have time for for the usual introduction, I want to capture the DUmmies before the DU mods have much chance to do damage control. Comments from the DUmmies are in Bolshevick red while the comments of your humble guest narrator, Paul Heinzman, are in the [brackets].
Here's an excerpt of the New York Post STORY regarding Jesse Jackson's remarks:
"WASHINGTON - In a vulgar tirade caught on tape by Fox News, the Rev. Jesse Jackson said he wanted to "cut his [Barack Obama's] nuts out" and he accused the fellow Chicagoan of "talking down to black folks" by giving moral lectures to African-Americans, source said."
[Ouch. Jesse, you can spit in my salad if you promise not to cut the Obama's nuts off.]
[OK, I'm in a hurry to get this out; PJ's busy, so let's go immediately to this DUmmie THREAD entitled "Look people, Jesse Jackson was not making a public speech or statement"]
Look people, Jesse Jackson was not making a public speech or statement
[What happens in the newsroom, stays in the newsroom.]
This was supposed to be a private conversation with the AA reporter.
[If this really were an AA meeting, they shouldn't have reported it. It wasn't.]
Lot's of blacks feel that Obama is talking down to them and are disappointed with some of his changes in position since winning the nomination.
[A lot of liberals are disappointed with his position changes with regard to FISA since winning the nomination. Aside from that, he's been talking down to all of us.]
Just like lots of white folks on the left are disappointed for the same reason. It's like Obama USED the black voters to get the nomination and now he is dissing them to appeal to more whites.
[I grew up in southeastern Ohio, and I heard a lot of racism there. But I honestly cannot think of two more racist sentences I ever heard, side by side, than those.]
It does not matter what the reality is...that is the perception.
[As a motto, "It does not matter what the reality is...
Jesse Jackson sees this as a problem and fears that Obama may be turning off some of the black vote that he will need in November to win. More than anything, Jesse wants Obama to win. So stop trying to make this an ego trip by Jesse. Jesse has paid his dues more than most blacks, including Obama.
[No, he doesn't. Jesse Jackson makes his living, a very good living, off of the idea that America is still a racist country, that an African-American cannot achieve the Dr. King's dream. The reality of a President Obama would destroy the Reverend Jackson's and the Reverend Sharpton's and the Reverend Wright's respective cash cows.]
Now on to the DUmmie comments. As the Sham-WOW guy sez, we're going to do this in real time. I'm not thinking about it much, I'm just going knee jerk.
"Jesse has paid his dues more than most blacks"
[I don't know where that quote came from, but it's pretty sickening. I think the Rev. Jackson would agree with me on that.]
Obama needs Jackson and jObama best not piss Jackson off too much.
[Jackson just talked about cutting Obama's nut's off. I guess you're right.]
He was set up. This was Faux News. They will revel in it for days. Weeks.
[It was the Rove Mind Control Machine.]
And they will play the racial card to the hilt.
[They will play tape that they record to the hilt. It's kinda in their job description.]
That's right. The Evil Fox put the words in his mouth
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!]
I actually think its good this happened
Reinforces he is a candidate who is black not a black candidate.
[I think it's good that you commented. It reinforces that you have big floppy ears and a stack of pancakes on your head.]
You've always disliked Obama so I'm sure it didn't bother you.
[A DUmmie throws Obama under the bus. It's a switcher-OOO.
Where is the proof that "lots of blacks"are unhappy with Obama?
[There isn't any. Lots of DUmmies are unhappy with Obama; that's well documented.]
She's trying to create some reality. Pretty sad attempt at it, too.
[Most human attempts to create or alter reality suck. Central air conditioning stands out. The rest is pretty lame.]
As much as I disagree with the OPs statement about Obama, I also disagree that Hillary is in any serious danger of losing her seat.
[It would take more that Pilates.]
Barack may not be the black man JJ envisioned attaining the presidency...
[Jesse Jackson was the black man that JJ envisioned attaining the presidency.]
What in the world are you talking about?! Oh heck... never mind.
[I'm just going to go ahead and give you a Kewpie doll; sometimes clueless is the best place you can be in DU.]
Jesse Jackson doesn't speak for all Black People.
[Or even a fraction of them.]
Well, this black person isn't disappointed with Obama nor is any other black person I know. I agree 100% with everything he's said about personal responsibility and how more black men should step up. It's not difference from anything that I have said, and I don't feel like he's sold me or anyone else out to pander to white voters..
[As one reasonable person to another, you will be disappointed with him. That personal responsibility crap will go right out the window once he's elected. Democrats never wanted empowerment for women, for blacks, for hard working people. They gave you easy answers, simple solutions, and you never had pay any mind to that man behind the curtain.]
Stop this f---ing shit, you f---ing troll.
[Hey, he didn't start it--Jesse started it.]
