Democrats Tortured by Reading of the US Constitution on House Floor
We’ve got the Democrats and the Republicans reading the Constitution on the floor of the House. Grab audio sound bite number three. This is the son of the Reverend Jackson, Jesse Jackson Jr. regarding the fetishists reading the Constitution.
JACKSON JR.: This is very emotional for I know a number members given the struggle, given the struggle of African-Americans, given the struggle of women, given the struggle of others to create a more perfect document, while not perfect a more perfect document to hear that those elements of the Constitution that have been dedacted (sic) by amendment are no less serious to improve the country and to make the country better and our sense in our struggle in whom we are at the Congress of the United States at this point in American history and our desire to continue to improve the Constitution, many of us don’t want that to be lost upon the reading of our sacred document.
RUSH: Right. So he wants the unamended version to highlight the original sin of slavery, which it did not, by the way. He does not want the amended version which got rid of it read. Reverend Jackson’s son down for the struggle, making it sound as though it might be too emotionally difficult for members of the Congressional Black Caucus to actually sit there and listen to the Constitution because of how emotional the struggle for African-Americans and women and so forth has been.
