MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The Rev. Jesse Jackson has urged thousands of protesters in the Wisconsin Capitol to continue their stand against a sweeping anti-union bill that state Republicans are pushing.

Jackson made an unannounced appearance at the protests Friday afternoon. Protesters rushed to shake his hand or high-five him, and many shouted, "Thank you, Jesse."

Jackson told the protesters they were fighting for a just cause.....

Is Sharpton there too? Seems those two always have to get their noses into thing that don’t concern them — I guess it’s the only way to keep their names in the news. Otherwise, they would have nothing else to do.

If Jesse Jackson showed up to support me in my cause, I’d begin to wonder if I was on the right side of the issue.

These delusional protesters ACTUALLY believe that Jackson’s support will somehow help them in the eyes of the public....

Hey, maybe Al can get a mob of teachers to attack an innocent Jew. He hasn’t done that in awhile...

America’s former #1 Race Pimp is concerned that Al Sharpton has taken away his money gig. Sorry Jesse. You’re too late. Fat Al has won the title of America’s #1 Race Pimp. You’re just #2.

Is there any doubt that Saint Martin Marxist Luther King would be marching with these unions goons were he alive today?

Even here, there's a small but vocal segment of FReepers who embrace MLK just because he had an 'R' next to his name. Well, when he was shot in Memphis, just what was MLK doing?

Why marching with a union, of course!

And Marty Junior took a firm stand against against personal liberty and freedom with his opposition to RIGHT TO WORK (which should be the law everywhere):

"In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as 'right to work.' It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights. It is supported by Southern segregationists who are trying to keep us from achieving our civil rights and our right of equal job opportunity. Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone.Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped. Our weapon is our vote."

Marty Junior, Jesse, and Fat Al -- they're all the same, supporting the thugocracy of unionism.

You know that Jesse was looking for something that might make him relevant again. Make sure he “stays out da Bushes”.

“If Jesse Jackson showed up to support me in my cause, I’d begin to wonder if I was on the right side of the issue”.

...this is the exact argument I have with lib relatives. I point out the dirtballs, wild eyed, gray haired hippies, and the nut job Hollywood types that are liberals and ask “do you really associate your beliefs with people like this”? “Have you taken a good look around at who your like minded associates are”?

Oh goodie. I was hoping Jessie would show up. There must be a need to stir up the racial hatred. Look for Reverend Al next.

I was wondering how long it would take this truly POS race pimp to show up. Sharpton will no doubt be along soon also. Al can’t let Je$$ie upstage him.

Jackson and Sharpton give “ambulance chasing lawyers” a good name. Two of the biggest con artists in American religious and political history, and the media still kisses their crooked asses.

Have they no shame?

If there is a protest of some kind, Jackson has to be there. As I said, it gives him relevance because he is so irrelevant. I find it sad that he passes himself off as the reincarnation of Martin Luther King, Jr. Meanwhile, Jackson couldn’t carry Dr. King’s jockstrap.

I read a post the other day from a teacher saying she didn’t get paid as highly as other Wisconsin Districts do. She said she’d loose $30,000 on her pension, if the Wisconsin Bill passed. But, she didn’t seem to understand that the State was broke? She seemed to think that her pension would be paid for by money that grows on trees? All she was concerned about was herself?
