Skip to comments.Jesse Jackson Lambastes Republican Class Warfare
Posted on 08/25/2012 10:53:43 AM PDT by John Semmens
The Reverend Jesse Jackson laid into the GOP for fomenting class warfare, insisting that the Romney/Ryan idea that people should be allowed to keep what they earn is divisive.
The way to unite all classes is to put everything into a common pot and dole out shares based on need, Jackson maintained. This is the basic Democratic plan. This election, voters are facing the biggest choice of their lifetimes. Do we go backward toward a selfish, every man for himself system as the Republicans want? Or do we move forward toward a new tomorrow of equality and sharing as President Obama wants?
Jackson argued that Romney wants to run this country like a business. Feasibility, affordability, and return on investment are his litmus tests. Obama wants to run this country like a family. Love is his litmus test.
The question voters should be asking themselves is do they want a boss who demands that they go to work, evaluates their performance, and only gives rewards to those who do their jobs? Jackson asked. Or do they want a dad who lets them have another piece of pie and stay up late to watch their favorite TV show because he loves them? Well know in November.

Though I know this is satire (and good satire at that), this should be put on billboards around the country!;-)
It captures the essence of the differences between the two choices in November!
Obama wants to run this country like a family. Love is his litmus test.
Yeah Rev........so did Jim Jones, how did that work out?
the best satire is always full of how they really feel vs what they would say....LOL
Jesse is NOT a Reverend. He did not finish divinity school. He has never had a church. He has never had a congregation. And if he really wants to talk about class warfare, he's looking at the wrong presidential candidate. Finally, Al Sharpton is not a Reverend, either, for the same reasons. In fact, Sharpton was "ordained" by a DC preacher at age 10, yet both of these idiots continue to persist the charade. They should both be ashamed...they are an affront to those who have worked to earn the title of Reverend.
It may be satire, but we all know its how liberals think.
all this from the pro rapist
I listen to Tim Conway’s show so I do understand Jacksonese. Your quotes have to be satire because he does not speak that clearly.
“dawaya inyitah classuhs Isa pudallinabibowl ado out akoding tons need.”
Of course, it is those who would appropriate the fruits of other people's labor, who engage in class warfare. Anyone who respects the rights of people to decide how they should employ the resources that they earn is hardly waring on anyone.
Neither Pravda in the days of Stalin, nor Herr Goebbels in Socialist Germany, ever employed the Big Lie more obviously than this sham Minister.
I am finding it increasingly hard to get the finger lately. I have a number of very offensive, not fit for prime time, bumper stickers on my truck disparaging the Master of the Universe. It is unnerving.
I even have Massholes giving the thumbs up, what am I doing wrong.
Once a useful idiot, always a useful idiot I suppose....
In Obama's case he's on record as saying in 1998 during a National Public Radio interview that he believes it's ok to tax at 100%, "as long as the Government provides the services required by those paying the taxes."
Look for Obama NPR Interview on YouTube. The Obama Campaign keeps getting it pulled down, but there's a ton of folks who keep putting it back up (I'm one of them...)
In other words. Do we want AMERICA or CUBA. Jackass, I mean Jackson, You have just defined the FOREIGNER’S POLITICAL IDEOLOGY better than anyone I have heard from the democrats so far. You will have your answer in November.
Oh yeah, that sounds a lot like something Jesse WOULD say!
Romney wants to run this country like a business’ CAPITOLISM something commie jesse jerkson does not understand for his people but certanly his pocket does let alone be able to promounce it. Just ask the other racist rabblerouser Al Sharpton you know the tawana brawley Al Sharpton.
These despicable racists use thier own to enjoy the fruits of capitolism and keep the divide going
