Skip to comments.Jason Whitlock on Imus: "Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are Terrorists" ['MUST SEE' TUCKER INTERVIEW]
Posted on 04/12/2007 10:04:05 PM PDT by jdm
Okay, I'm not Peach ( :O) ), but I tried to transcribe this Tucker Carlson/Jason Whitlock interview as fully as possible.
Here's a [partial] transcript from Jason's interview with Tucker [on MSNBC] earlier today:
In the course of expressing his contrition on The Today Show, Don Imus asserted his offensive language was the product of African-American culture -- not the creation of White America.
Few were impressed by that claim, but our next guest believes Imus was making an important point.
People that don't want to see black people advance have won.
Don Imus is irrelevant to what's going on with black people.
Don Imus is no threat to us.
Don Imus will not shoot one of us in the street.
He will not impregnate our daughter or sister and abandon that kid and that woman.
I'm not a Don Imus fan.
I don't have any love for Don Imus.
But this is wrong.
This whole thing has been handled horribly for black people and for all of America.
That's a very brave point of you to make, particularly right now, when almost nobody is saying that out loud. Back to something you said a while ago, the two ministers... you desperately referred to... who need forgiveness... I assume you're talking about the Reverends, Sharpton and Jackson... What is their role exactly?
Don Imus tried to apologize. He went on Sharpton's show. Terrible mistake. He played right into Sharpton. But these guys have driven this issue and I would say to CBS, "Don't negotiate with terrorists."
They [Sharpton, Jackson] go around the country lighting fires and dividing people and then start picking everyone's pocket. You never see them go back and apologize for the messes they make.
Jesse Jackson today, right now, should be down at Duke apologizing to those players rather than trying to turn these basketball players into the ultimate victims.
He owes the people down at Duke an apology for going and stirring in that mess and dividing people and dividing the nation.
They [Sharpton, Jackson] are terrorists; they go around this country starting fires.
If Jackson's so bad, then why does he have so much power and why do people listen to him and do his bidding?
I believe that most of America is tired of Jesse Jackson. We look at his track record of his accomplishments and there's nothing there ... other than Jesse and Al lining their pockets.
I don't understand how our black leaders get these life-time appointments, like they're Supreme Court justices.
We need to vote them out and bring in new leadership. It's not 1965. The problems aren't the same as they were in 1965. It's 2007 -- black people have a new set of problems and we need some new leadership and people with new solutions. These guys are trying to drag us back into the 1940s and 50s.
TUCKER: I nominate you Jason -- I appreciate you coming on. Thank you very much.
JASON: Thank you.
Please ‘ping’ your lists on this, if you feel necessary. Important interview, IMO.
Truthful & insightful breath of fresh air. Thanks
Jason Whitlock is a brave and intelligent man who deserves to be listened to by the black community. Unfortunately, he will be ignored by the people who could use his wisdom the most.
I never thought I’d say this, but that was impressive. Very nicely done, Mr. Whitlock.
Imus should have called Sharpton out on his stand and influence in the Duke nappy-headed ho case at the beginning. And where does Sharpton stand now, I wonder?
I thought so too. When I found that video on YouTube, it had NO VIEWS yet either! Too bad not more people have seen this!
Great article by Jason from the KC Star, Imus isnt the real bad guy:
Excellent! I read his article the other day. Reminds me of something the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson might say. Very forceful and unabashed. I’m glad he’s speaking out.
Maybe not .. at first the black establishment didn’t appreciate Bill Cosby’s frank statements about what was really going on in the black community.
However, a lot of blacks have now realized that Bill may be saying some truthful things that need their attention.
Jason might do better than most people think!
I was refering more to the kind of people who follow Sharpton and listen to self-denigrating gangsta rap. Whitlock’s wisdom will be lost on them.
What we need are some enterprising commmunity oriented citizens to dig up youTube stuff and quotes of Jackson and Sharpton relating to the Duke Lacrosse Case injustice. I think they did some incitin' there, too.
That was GOOD!
Jason Whitlock bookmark
This interview nailed the race pimps for what they are. A lot of people think they’ve set race relations back 40 years.
He’s on CNN right now.
I saw Jason last night and he was FABULOUS!!!!!! Where has he been??? What a solid guy!! MORE!!! MORE!!
Thanks for posting this. I saw it last evening. Tucker was rocked by the guy. Jason needs to get out more.
Whitlock was just on CNN with Al; after Whitlock pummeled and trashed Al to his face, Al stammered something about “people who aren’t in the ring always think they have better answers.”
It was pathetic.
Recommended quick read; Diane Sawyer thinks Larry Elder attacked her because he gently corrected her about what free speech means.
The victimhood claimed in this country has gone so far over the top, Im not sure we can ever recover. Weve become a country of weenies.
My son just walked in and saw the thread title over my shoulder. He said, “Jason Whitlock! He’s a sports writer.”
I guess I need to start watching more of the ESPN talk shows.
He is? Well, I have seen him twice and he’s very articulate!
If the news keeps going the way it’s going, I’ll be hanging around ESPN message boards.......LOL.
Jason Whitlock substitutes for Mike Wilbon or Tony Kornheiser on PTI on ESPN. He also is on shows like the Sportswriters and Jim Rome. He usually is very good.
Whitlock is an ex-ESPN contributor, I believe he had an ugly fallout with some of the wussy liberals like Mike Lupica on the “Sports Reporters”. He wrote a great article on the thug culture at the NBA All-Star game in Vegas.
Well, I need to venture OFF the talking heads channels and listen to more people like him; if I do that, perhaps you all won’t hear about me in breaking news sometiem in the near future when I hurt somebody from having to listen to the drivel they all are spouting now.
What is his story? Did he go to college somewhere and then get into sports writing?
Let’s bump this! Look’s like Jason is going to be voted off of the “Reverend” Sharpton’s and “Reverend” Jackson’s little island of raceland. Speaking of “Reverend” when does a title of Reverend have to be surrendered? Somehow the title doesn’t fit for someone that goes out and impregnates women out of wedlock...
I’m not really sure. I vaguely remember him in the past, then I heard him on Steve Czaban’s morning show on Fox Sports Radio talking about the NBA All-Star Game. He’s no right-winger, but certainly not your boilerplate media angry black man.
The Rush affair was the final indicator for me as far as ESPN being a liberal cesspool, as bad as the news channels.
Psst, don’t tell them, Jackie Robinson was a Republican and a strong anti-communist.
Well .. you may have a great point there.
It’s the same with the people over at DU .. none of them would ever listen to any GOP person’s statements. Looks like the libs have done a good job brainwashing people.
The Left has done a great job brainwashing people. It seems to get worse all the time. More and more people are being seduced by the “dark side of the force.”
I saw him on with Anderson Cooper last night (or now I’m wondering if it was AJ Hammer) last night.. excellent points he is making.. much better than watching that jerk Black Panther jerk denigrate Michelle Malkin as a Prostitute for Bill O’reilly last night and the one on H&C tonight that said he hates White people..... oh, yes, they give us so much to respect. /s
A lot depends on the parents. My son and his wife are raising 3 girls, and they’re very, very particular about what their girls see on TV, hear on the radio, and who they talk to on the internet - and their time on the internet is very limited, etc.
When they’re at my house, they will readily tell me, “we’re not allowed to watch that”. There’s no doubt in their mind what’s acceptable.
They’re also fiercely PRO-American. The oldest of the girls (almost 16) was thrilled to receive Newt’s new book, “Discovering God in America”.
Laura Ingraham was interviewing a lady the other morning (I forgot her name), but she has written a book called, “How to Raise an American”. It sounds a lot like what my son and his wife have done with their girls.
I see more and more parents today allowing the school to rule .. and the school is one of the most screwed up places and the very last place where I would look for structure for my children.
