Jesse Jackson is a Tired Old Man

In comments caught on a hot microphone by Jesse Jackson he didn't go for the throat but the crotch of Barack Obama and thus this little article was born.

When it comes right down to it I respect Jesse Jackson but I tend to hate the hate he sells. That’s his bread and butter and his table is set right along with Al Sharpton of telling people that African Americans are forever in slavery. Bull! The only people buying Jesse and Al’s speeches are people thinking that life is or should be a free ride. That isn’t the case in America. Living the American experience is all about opportunity and it is all around you 24/7. All you have to do is pick your ass up and move your ass towards it.

Jesse Jackson is a man that accomplished much in his life when it comes to race relations but he has also contributed much more to the separation of races and suppressed African Americans that can be much more. Jesse is an angry black man and I understand that but I can not understand his anger directed at Barack Obama who is a clear example of what any African American child could be. President of the United States of America. In that thought, I think of the Kennedy family and JFK in his speech to America. He wasn’t speaking to just white people, he was speaking to all Americans when he said “Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country.” In that thought, Barack Obama has stepped up to the plate to do for his country. This is not a black and white issue, this is an American issue. Jesse Jackson is just pissed off that he can not sell what he is selling because nobody wants to buy it.

Over at the New York Post, extremely right wing, is selling this kind of news….

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 Jackson's shocking quotes were picked up by a hot mic before an interview on health care in Fox's Chicago studio last Sunday

Fox planned to air the recording on Bill O'Reilly's "The Factor" show.
In an effort to blunt the controversy, Jackson issued an apology.

"For any harm or hurt that this hot mic conversation may have caused, I apologize," Jackson said in a statement.

Jackson said he couldn't recall everything he'd said in the studio but couched the remarks as part of a discussion about Obama speaking to black churchgoers.

In such settings, Obama has urged greater emphasis on fatherhood, advised parents to choose reading books over playing video games and most recently told young students to stick with school and forget about a career as a rap star or professional basketball player.
- New York Post

I’m thinking the Reverend Jackson missed a couple of Sunday School classes and sneaked into the more about me classes. Fox News will run with this story and run it into the ground. Bill O’Reilly will have a field day with it bashing Obama as divided amongst the black community and the run with it will not stop.

Would I be politically incorrect in saying that Jesse Jackson is a tired old man that is pissed off that he is not Barack Obama? Would I be wrong for calling Jesse Jackson an idiot out to derail another African American in politics? I don’t think so.

Where Obama is offering hope, and there is hope in this nation, Jesse Jackson is selling division and despair. There is nothing wrong with telling all of our children to reach high and grasp what is and can be yours. Obama is running for a new America that is not and should not be the trials that Reverend Jackson went through and for that we all have the many civil rights leaders to thank. We have all come so far as a nation, we need not look back to what once was.

Look at the big picture Reverend Jackson, look at the damn big picture.

Jackson is a jealous old famewhore, he can't see the big picture, he only cares about himself, as always.
