Jesse Jackson Keeps Racism Alive
Oh yeah, if you listened to the Insane Liberal Clown Posse, you would hear a message from them that it is everyone else but them who use racist language and harbor varying degrees of racist behavior.
So it sure is (pick one or more choices) - humorous, hypocritical, disgusting, abhorrent, typical - that one of America's most preeminent black political figures referred to his own brothers and sisters as "niggers." (Don't bum on me for reproducing that word. When that word has been verifiably spoken by someone and it is reproduced as an accurate quote, it should go without saying that I am quoting the person). Media Bistro:
TVNewser has been sent the transcript of what Jesse Jackson said Sunday morning July 6, as he prepared for an interview on Fox & Friends Weekend. Below is the partial transcript we received in our tips box, and confirmed to be authentic by Fox News Channel representatives.
"Barack...he's talking down to black people...telling n—s how to behave."
So, yes. Jesse Jackson did use the "N" word. But it was not directed at Barack Obama. Fox News and Bill O'Reilly have maintained there was more on the tape, but that the un-aired portion was not relevant to the issue at hand: about whether Obama was "talking down" to the black community.
In an interview with CBS News' Harry Smith on The Early Show, Sharpton said he was "very disappointed" about Jackson's reported use of the n-word during a conversation picked up by a hot microphone in a Fox studio.
"I think that this certainly does not reflect the Reverend Jackson that we all know and love," Sharpton said. [Sharpton's sentence straight from ObamaLand with respect to the "that's not the [insert name of person here] that I knew," type of response/defense. - Drake]
Sharpton called attention to the hypocrisy of Jackson's use of the word, following Jackson's own call for the word to be expunged from the language.
"Those of us--and many of us have used it privately, said we must refrain from it if we're going to challenge people using it publicly," Sharpton said. "You must be consistent."
We'll find out just how serious an offense using the "N-word" really is now, if we see Jackson making the same type of Mea Culpas that was required of Don Imus. If Jackson doesn't embark on his "Great Apology Tour", then we will know what we've always known about the Democrats, that they are hypocrites and racists of the worst kind.
That's what Jesse Jackson is doing. He can't stand the fact that most Americans are NOT prejudice and he can't AFFORD for it to be true. What on earth will he do if he lets it be known that most people GET ALONG without a hitch? Oh... we know for a fact there are assholes out there that are beyond bigots... but they are not the majority by any means.
Jesse is just trying to keep his "SWEET ASS, HIGH PAYING (for nothing) JOB" so he can go off some sweet jumps. Oh wait... wrong reference.
Eventually any fire will cool and burn out... but not when you keep pouring gas on it... especially at $4.20 a gallon.
