Skip to comments.Jesse Jackson: Bush Would Have Left Jesus Homeless

President Bush has implemented economic policies that resemble those of the Roman Empire, which forced the baby Jesus into homelessness on the night of his birth, former civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson said in a pre-Christmas rant late Thursday.
"In the last [Bush] budget, we cut housing again, and that was Jesus' dilemma. In Bethlehem, his family ended up homeless," Jackson told MSNBC's Campbell Brown.
"Rome was a wealthy country that left Jesus and Mary and Joseph, in a sense, homeless," he complained. "He was born an at-risk baby."
The GOP bashing Democrat said that while Bush's reelection campaign had been successful in "marketing the language of religious values," the Bush White House isn't practicing what it preaches.
Jackson charged that under Bush's policies, the U.S. "appears to be indifferent toward the poor as we seek tax cuts and no-bid contracts for the wealthy; as we engage in wars of choice - driving our nation into isolation."
"Today we are celebrating the wealthy and war, not the poor and peace," he contended, while urging the Bush administration to "restore the Lyndon Baines Johnson vision where we wipe out poverty - not wipe out the poor."
Jesse Jackson would have tried to extort $$ from Jesus. I'm not so sure he's not trying that now on some level.
What a dumbass. Jesus's home was/is Heaven. He left it voluntarily to cleanse even idiots like Jesse Jackson of his sins.
Can't we somehow get rid of this guy? He's a waste of good skin.
Jesse would have had Jesus aborted with tax-payer funding.
If you're not a good liberal, you're heartless and cruel. Like I want to see the poor suffer and children starve. Hey Jesse, its a view that's sadly out of date.
Bump that! Right in the ten-ring.
what can ya say about someone who has made his contribution to society by birthing babies out of wedlock and lived off the generosity of others thru extortion and lies?
now he 'almost' has to beg for media coverage.
Oh how the mighty in their own minds have fallen.
Je$$e,, yur mealticket sailed long ago and left you and the rest of the rats back at the wharf.. get used to it.
More likely he'd have offered to provide Mary with a state funded abortion.
"In the last [Bush] budget, we cut housing again, and that was Jesus' dilemma. In Bethlehem, his family ended up homeless,"
It was meant to show Christ's humility. It was planned to occur that way by our Sovereign Lord...it had nothing to do with housing.
What a cheap, pathetic shill to use such a blatantly inaccurate tactic.
What supreme and utter nonsense. Jesus wasn't "homeless." And the government was more like the Democrats, imposing a burdensome requirement that everyone go to their city of origin to be taxed. But for the taxation, Jesus would have been born in his parents' home. Joseph and Mary wouldn't have been forced onto the road, looking for space at an inn.
Jackson is a moron. He's always using big words that he obviously doesn't understand. He apparently doesn't know much about the Bible, either. If he were white, he would have been laughed off the national stage a long time ago.
Would the Three Wise Dogs had the bling?
Liberals like Jesse would have had him aborted for the sake of the mother.
Right, wasn't Joseph on his way to pay his taxes? Wasn't Joseph's family sort of well-to-do?
Despite the lofty gaols and the transfer of trillions of dollars, the poverty rate remains about the same. Time to try a different track Jesse?
Jesse Jackson is the biggest joke around. If there were anyone who cared about him [family-wise], they would shut him up. He's just a clown, and he's the only one who doesn't know it.
Then let's put Mary on WIC and problem solved.
Je$$e Jack$son would have crucified Jesus for being moral and Jewish and poor.
