Jesse Jackson Shows Up in Madison
2/18/01 | Vanity

Posted on 02/18/2011 10:52:53 AM PST by Obadiah

With helicopters hovering overhead and bused in crowds jeering in red, it is clear that media cameras and microphones must be near because the Rev. Jesse Jackson has just shown to the Madison protest.

Jackson was seen glad handing through the crowd with the requisite TV cameras lapping it all up.

KEYWORDS: babydaddy; jagmo; jesse; jessejackson; madistan; wisconsinshowdown
Once again Jackson inserts himself into the limelight. The question is, when will Al Sharpton show up.

Jeopardy Answer:

"How you know when the flea circus is in town?"

Well... from what I’ve read about the protesters statements, the Socialists and Communists are already there. Might as well have the race baiters too.

Every Circus needs a good freakshow!

Haven’t heard from Jesse in a while. Guess obama called and said “I need you to get out da’ bushes and come help me.”

Are TV cameras there? Then so is Jesse.

What I’m curious about is how is he gonna turn this into a black thing? It’s all about racism with him, and since Wisconsin only has 6.2 % blacks (I looked it up) then how can he turn this into another ....

Ahh forget it. He’ll find a way.

Jesse must have been watch Ed Schultz do his show live from Madison last night. Soon the Commie head of the AFL-CIO Richard Trumka will also be at the Capital.

Tea Party rally at the Capital tomorrow so should be interesting.

Ah, the cherry on top of the sundae, but not just yet. Next we need Farikan and Sharpton to provide the nuts. THEN, the cherry on top.

Hold on just a minute......where’s Sheila Jackson Lee??? She too has never seen a camera she didn’t like. It would be a contest as to who’s the most ignorant and grandstanding of the 2.

Hysterical, actually. As led by the Justice Brothers, "Symphony for AFL-CIO in A Sharp(ton) for Bullhorn and Tuba".

Of course he's there, there are cameras, right?

Their ploy isn't working, so they have to try and make it "racial"...trouble is, that card has lost a lot of its uumph, for which they can thank obama.

It's certainly a circus now that Jesse's arrived.

The union thugs wanted JJ there so they could say “At least we work for our pay & benefits; this guy’s thugs get all these things without even getting out of bed”. At that point they hope the Gov. will be reasonable...
