Jesse Jackson Sr. responds to 'Duck Dynasty' star's comments
Chicago Tribune ^ | December 25, 2013 | Wes Venteicher

Posted on 12/29/2013 11:27:47 AM PST by Hacksaw

Jesse Jackson Sr. has jumped into the controversy surrounding comments by Phil Robertson, star of A&E’s backwoods reality TV show, “Duck Dynasty.”

In an announcement sent out Tuesday, Jackson Sr. compared Robertson’s recent comments about African-Americans, gay people and women to comments made by the driver of Rosa Parks’ bus.

"At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat to a white person, was following state law,” he said in the release. “Robertson's statements were uttered freely and openly without cover of the law, within a context of what he seemed to believe was ‘white privilege.’”

Jackson’s human rights group, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, has demanded meetings with A&E and with Cracker Barrel regarding the two companies’ treatment of Robertson, who stars in the show as the head of a Louisiana family that makes duck calls.

Jackson’s group, along with LGBT group GLAAD and the National Organization for Women, urged A&E to keep Robertson on an indefinite hiatus from the show, which the network started following Robertson’s comments criticizing homosexuality in an interview with GQ magazine.

Cracker Barrel removed Duck Dynasty items from its shelves and then put them back Sunday after customers protested, according to a Cracker Barrel news release.

Looks like Jesse sees an opportunity to fleece someone. Not sure why he is involved with the NOW Cows.

and it must've been black race hustling when Jesse Jackson referred to New York City as hymietown....

Apparently, A&E isn’t bothering to return Jesse’s phone calls.

If his phone don’t ring, he’ll know it’s A&E.

Well, I’ve read that Messy Jesse Jackson issued his broadside, giving A&E 72 hours to respond to him. Nobody seems to have noticed his statement. And I’m sure that he understands that numbers of African American ministers oppose his principles on homosexuality. This man is such a horrible beast.

Is anyone else getting tired of hearing this White Privilege garbage?

Is part of white privilege working hard to support blacks on welfare and food stamps and getting denied promotions and jobs because those jobs and promotions are set asides to match the black quotas for affirmative action?

Is White Privilege having fear to walk the streets where blacks are present?

Is part of white privilege having to listen to CS’er like Jackson and Sharpton as they race bait their way to fame and fortune?

musta been 7c business hours, and due to the Holidays should put it about 10 days behind Robertsons return to A&E.

Not much leverage left.

I would however, love to see Rev. JJ be forced to sit down in a room with the Robertson family and learn a bit about the Bible and Tolerance.

The whole concept of "white privilege" is just an attempt to rationalize minority dysfunction

J J and his brother Al are people for whom the use of the “N” word is appropriate. Yes I know that is "racist" and no I don't care. Just my opinion of course.

Jesse SHUT UP and GO VISIT YOUR SON IN FEDERAL PRISON!

HIS SIN WAS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF BLACK PRIVILEDGE!!

Jackson, 48, a South Side Democrat, served in Congress nearly 17 years before he quit last November amid a federal corruption probe. In August he was sentenced to 30 months in prison for looting his campaign fund of $750,000.

Jackson Jr. assigned to minimum security section of prison

There are people, Jessee Jackson being one and Bill Maher being another, that reduce the IQ to any who listen to them, and are only taken seriously by those whose IQs have been fully reduced.

Too late, Jesse.

That train done left the station and de-railed three miles out.

Better luck next time.

Without the cover of law, eh? I guess Jesse never bother to read the Constitution. No surprise there.

This from a guy who cheated on his wife (fathering an illegitimate daughter) and whose son is in Federal prison. He should clean house first before admonishing others on their morals.

No matter how the conversation starts or what the subject is that brought Jesse Jackass running it always ends the same way. Give me money and I'll go away and not make trouble for you.

Jesse Jackass is a racist con man. I hope A and E gave him exactly what he deserves. I hope they just flatly ignored him and give him no publicity, no face time on TV, and no recognition that in any way indicates that he is a legitimate player in this situation. He is a fake christian racist con man.

Let me remind everyone he cheated on his wife clearly showing he has no honesty or honor. No one should believe one word he says of give their trust.

This is from Christmas day, however, there aren't any comments at the Trib site.

Is it policy not to have comments on stories, or just on the opinion page?

Or is it just "Shakedown" privilege to be protected by limousine liberals when it comes to such obvious corrupt practices?

Phil needs to respond tho these comments:

“There is nothing more painful for me at this stage in my life,’’ Jesse Jackson said several years ago, ‘’than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery — and then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”
