Rev. Jackson Gets in on the Action: Obama sailed the ship of state into an iceberg
The Reverend Jackson, ladies and gentlemen, not happy as well. He’s in the same camp as Maxine Waters. He was also on MSNBC today on Jansing and Company. The hostette infobabe anchorette Chris Jansing interviewing the Monochrome Coalition’s Reverend Jackson, and during a discussion about Obama and the 2012 presidential race, Jansing said to Jackson, “90% plus of African-Americans have supported the president. Do you feel he can do more and needs to do more?”
JACKSON: Black voters gave the first votes and the most votes and now have the most pain. The highest infant mortality rate, the shortest life expectancy, least access to jobs and capital, so obviously it must be targeted for more than just for votes. If I can use the analogy of the great Titanic. There are those in the Tea Party that want to destroy the captain and preserve those on the deck and preserve those in the cabins but the water is gushing up the bottom and more and more people are falling in the sink.
RUSH: What in the world is he talking about? When that bite first started, I was saying, “Whoa, I’ve never heard this before. We’ve got Jesse Jackson ripping into a black president, a Democrat president for the following circumstances: highest mortality rate, shortest life expectancy, least access to jobs and capital, obviously they must be targeted for more than votes. If I could use analysis of the great Titanic, those in the Tea Party want to destroy the captian.” So somehow it’s now the Tea Party’s fault that the highest mortality rate and the shortest life expectancy is in the black community, and least access to jobs and capital in the black community is the Tea Party’s fault. And then want to destroy the captain and preserve those on the deck and those in the cabins but the waters are gushing in from the bottom and more and more people are falling into the sink. Now, you know, I don’t want to nitpick here, but the Titanic was never in a sink. But it is what it is.
