In addition to voicing his opposition to urban farming in Detroit ("cute but foolish"), civil rights leader Jesse Jackson's remarks to the Detroit City Council on Tuesday featured some provocative comments about the new battery plant in Holland.
Specifically: It should be in Detroit.
The Detroit News quoted him as telling the Council: "The governor, a Democrat, brags about Michigan getting a battery plant, built north of Grand Rapids, as opposed to Detroit, the engine that drives the state. We need industrialization, not farming. Detroit needs the battery plant. Let farmers farm ... We are not offering a farming plan for Baghdad."
Detroit drives Michigan like an anchor drives a ship.
Jesse should get a job and keep his mouth shut..
I believe Holland, MI is mostly white and has a lot of Dutch Reformed churches. Nothing there for jesse jackass.
Jackson is an idjit. Holland is full of greedy whiteys apparently.
..just Jesse being Jesse and trying to scam money from someone....still hunting nuts Jesse?
Used to be that way.
Holland is becoming more brown. English is hardly the first language anymore.
I’ve got no problem with putting the battery plant in Detroit. In fact, it would be an improvement. Along with a lead smelter, a mercury vapor plant, some oil refineries and a toxic waste recycler. We need all these things, and places like Detroit, Camden, East St. Louis and Gary are perfect locations.
Oh, and Jesse Jackson is a race-baiting poverty pimp.
A quantum leap from redistribution of wealth to redistribution of factories.
Does the Factory Allocation Czar know about this?
If it moves to Detroit, it will have assault and batteries.
Jesse Jackson says Deetroit is the economic engine that drives Michigan. LOL
Apparently he hasn’t figured out a hustle related to “urban farming” yet. Didn’t Jesse’s car get stolen in Detroit last week?
Where’s your car, Jesse?
Jesse Jackson who has never run anything...
never had a job,
that Jesse Jackson? /s
With the socialist libs /Dems running the place for 40 years...
Oh yeah!.... The "engine" drove a large portion of the state off a steep cliff...
(Now stalled... unlikely to "re-start")
Achmed & Co... Now hard at work buying all the cheap infidel real estate...
The esteemed Justice Bros. rep (midwest division office)...
NEEDS TO SHUT HIS PIE HOLE!!!!
Where’s your car, Jesse? Maybe down on the Detroit farm?
It was an Escalade SUV... driven to a “green” speech.
probably an insurance scam.......
