Jesse Jackson to Visit Hospice and Meet with Schindlers

On Tuesday morning, March 29, The Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr., founder and president of the RainbowPUSH Coalition, plans to visit the Woodside Hospice, where Terri lives, located at 6774 102nd Avenue N. (near 66th Street N and 102nd Avenue N) in Pinellas Park, Florida.

Rev. Jackson is responding to an invitation from the Schindler family to come and pray with the family, and if possible visit Terri Schiavo in the hospice.

After meeting and praying with the Schindler family, Rev. Jackson will make a statement to the press.

Whatever one may think of Mr. Jackson, he does seem to be trying to help, at least to pray and bring some comfort. Perhaps he will see her responsiveness and add his voice to the many that have spoken out in her behalf.

No way, If Jesse was interested in helping, he would have been there two weeks ago when the real forces for good were assembling. All he is doing now is jumping on the band wagon and get in front of the cameras.

Jesse Jackson is an opportunistic race baiter that has made a fortune off of those he was supposedly defending. Jesse has cashed in on every tragedy imaginable, and now we are supposed to believe he is acting on principle???? LOL... Give me a break

The chicken shows up after he knows it is too late to do any good. Sorry, guess that sounds like I don't think anyone will be able to - or is willing to - save Terri.

I totally agree

But I have to admit that I am a little surprised to see him on the side of pro-life

So am I. He has been known to get things done when our government doesn't or won't.. Still praying. I can't stand Jesse, but I will give him credit where credit is due. I will be willing to take what I can get. My president and his brother have certainly failed. Terri is alive for a reason. Go, Jesse.

Has Jesse Jackson said that he believes Terri Schiavo's feeding tube should be reinserted?

If he has it's a good thing but it's too late to matter. I also don't believe for a second that he really cares. He's more interested in feeding his on ego than he is in feeding Terri Schiavo . Nothing can happen without this guy getting his nose in it. He may be on the right side of this issue but it's about the only issue he's ever been right on. I'm sure it's no coincidence he waited until there was almost no chance to save Terri before getting involved either. Jackson is just a selfish race baiting scumbag when it comes down to it. The "reverend" also needs to pray for himself and stop having illegitimate kids.

Umm. Yeah. sometimes he does things that our Presidents won't, can't, whatever. Sometimes it works. Do I like him? NO! In fact, I do think he is aracist. But if he can help Terri, I will accept it. Thats all I want.

WHATEVER WORKS IS FINE BY ME. I DO NOT LIKE HIM BUT IF HE CAN SAVE TERRI I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH HIM. OKAY? This is so horrific and JJ thinks so too, that maybe, just maybe, he can get her help. Yes, it may be too late, but we will see.

Lovergirl .. I don't mean to attack you .. I am a supporter of Terri's right to live

But the reality is .. she is dying, her kidneys are failing

and the ONLY reason Jesse Jackson is going down there at this LATE date is for the cameras

I do not have much faith in the prayers of Jesse Jackson, and I doubt that they can hit the ceiling, but if he wants to pray, let him pray, and let us all hope that I am wrong.

JJ visiting will help Terri realize there ARE worse things than death.

What does this useless SOB want for nothing? For decades, he's been fighting for the sort of society that has condemned Terri to death.

JESSE is going down for CAMERA time hoping for good PR on himself and himself only.

I do not blame the Schlinder family for this lapse in judgement as they are in a very sad state of mind and reaching out for any hope even if its from one who intends not to help but get on the news tonight in a positive light.

From my site this morning:
Never get between Jesse Jackson and a camera

Never one to let a photo op go untapped, Jesse Jackson is set to meet with Terri Schiavo's parents at the protest outside her hospice this morning. Of course, the unwitting accomplices in the Schiavo protest are oblivious to Jackson's true motive.

Rev. Jackson is responding to an invitation from the Schindler family to come and pray with the family, and if possible visit Terri Schiavo in the hospice.

After meeting and praying with the Schindler family, Rev. Jackson will make a statement to the press.

See what I mean?

Oh please. Jesse is all about 'seeming' to be concerned, when he is all about media attention and scheming how he can profit from something.

JJ better step on it then whatever his agenda is. In any event:

PRESS RELEASE by Conservative Spirit: Monday, March 28, 2005 12:00 noon est

On Monday, March 28, 2005 at approximately 11:00 am est, seven American citizens met with Representative David Simmons, Chairman of the Florida House Judiciary Committee to A. urge that our leaders save Terri's life and to declare to Representative Simmons that we didn't believe all possible had been done to save an innocent, woman from a painful, gruesome death by dehydration and starvation as ordered per a guardianship judge who lacks compassion. A guardianship judge should be compassionate whether the ward is Terri Schiavo or Jane Doe. B. demand that an exploratory committee be created regarding the impeachment of George W. Greer, Sixth Circuit Court, Pinellas County, Florida. (details being withheld at this time to protect the integrity of the process.) C. demand that Guardianship Laws in Florida are revisited In total to protect all Floridians and their families from bad law.

End of Press Release.

Jessie Jackson's appearance in this is making a taudry affair out of what should be a very private matter. I'm wondering how much dramatic fuel the MSM is adding to this situation. i also wonder if the Schindlers really extended to Mr. Jackson the "invitation" to visit Terri Schiavo, or if this was some MSM idea for a more sensational effect.

My thoughts exactly. F the MSM. Someone played Don Hensley's "Dirty Laundry" last night on the jukebox at the place where I go for Monday night Poker...to echo the song, I think "the boys in the newsroom have a running bet...."

I keep singing "It's a Family Affair" in my head. What is going on here sorted, tawdry, tacky, vulgar, indecent, and we should be ashamed. There's almost the most primitive of animal instincts driving a 21st-century, evolved human society to feast on this frenzy.

They broke away from JJ to President BUSH in teh Rose Garden...

Tue Mar 29 10:23:19 2005 the left of the reverend jesse jackson. As we've been telling you through the day he was expected to speak to the media after he had a visit with terri schiavo. As you know she is now in day 12 without food or water inside that hospice there in pinellas park.

>> We've been in touch with the family lawyer for about the last week. Yesterday mrs. Schindler and bobby called me and asked would I come and pray with them and be with them and i was anxious to do so. Because this is one of the profound moral, ethical issues of our time, the saving of terri's life, the day we pray for a miracle.

We ask God's intervention and god has done it before. Reach out to people across lines that divide across these biblical and ideological lines that divide and you look at in a singular way but also for what this crisis represents to america and to americans and to world health, as a matter of fact.

I've been in situations as a minister with people in advanced stages of cancer, who needed drugs to help them fight the pain and then they slip into a coma and maybe even if they struggle with pain another shoT. And you can see on the monitor their pulse falling. It's time to pull the plug and within minutes always died. This is a different situation.

Without food or water for 12 days there are vital signs. She is being starved to deatH. She has been dehydrated to death. And that's inhumane. It's immoral and unnecessary. There is no rational reason for this to happen.

I've been on the phone today talking with the senate asking them to be creative enough to try to fashion some emergency legislation to stop the starving , to stop the dehydration. We called the governor's office. He's to get back to uS. We did call michael schiavo and asked if we could go in and have prayer with terri. He finally got back and said he thought not.

My interest has not been the politics of and the finger pointing that's gone oN. We really do need family unity in ways that terri would never perhaps have had before.

You trust Jesse Jackson over the President????

For the one of the first times in over four years the President did something halfway conservative in my mind. Granted he nor Congress should have gotten involved in the first place but once the Republican grandstanding failed, he just stepped back and let the state handle it, as it should have been in the first place. I have to applaud him for that. I wouldn't trust Jesse Jackson to take out my trash.

But as he is appealing to the emotional outburst from many so called conservatives (read: Republicans), he's going to get the benefit of the doubt. Jackson is just grandstanding again and apparently it's worked out quite well for him. Rainbow Push may have to give him a bonus at year end for getting himself tied up into this one....
