Jesse Jackson: 'Plantation' comments insult black voters
By: Juana Summers September 30, 2011 04:20 PM EDT
Black voters have not been brainwashed, and suggesting as much as Herman Cain and Pat Buchanan have recently is demeaning and derogatory, Jesse Jackson said Friday.
Those are very strong words, the veteran civil rights activist told POLITICO. Its both demeaning and insulting.
Cain, the former CEO of Godfathers Pizza and a Republican presidential candidate, on Wednesday told CNN that black voters have been brainwashed into not being open-minded, not even considering a conservative point of view.
I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative, Cain told CNNs Wolf Blitzer. So its just brainwashing and people not being open-minded, pure and simple.
On Thursday, Buchanan, an MSNBC contributor, endorsed that view.
I admire Herman Cain for standing up and going against, if you will, the conventional wisdom, and being a tough African-American businessman who succeeded in a tough world, Buchanan said.
He said blacks had been hurt by programs championed by Democratic presidents like Lyndon B. Johnson.
Great Society liberalism has been devastating for the African-American family. I think what hes saying that they bought an awful lot of liberal propaganda on the liberal plantation, and I think hes right, Buchanan said.
Jackson criticized Buchanan for openly misconstruing Johnsons record, whom he called one of the most transformative presidents of the last century.

And Jesse Jackass insults my intelligence.
Lighten up Jesse. Don’t you have a sexual harassment lawsuit or something you need to be taking care of?
Only Obama gives this fool any credibility and that is now zero.
You and yours have been on the plantation for a long time, Jesse, you’re too dumb to see it, and your massas are gong to make sure you stay that way.
IIRC, Hillary said “Plantation” at a black caucus.
An Overseer of the Democrat Plantation has spoken....
In the same sense that Scipio Africanus was "transformative" of Carthage in the Punic Wars, and the sense that Sherman was "transformative" of Georgia in 1864.
But ‘take off your bedroom slippers’ isn’t racial, eh Jesse?
The welfare rolls, housing projects and inner-city schools are the plantation, and the Democrats are the slave-holders.
Herman Cain just wants to set his people free.
The fact of the matter is that poverty was declining until LBJ's War on Poverty began. After that, poverty stopped declining. Despite ten trillions of dollars, poverty is winning that war, as "fought by the federales and the poverty industry.
It's meant to be, boss.
Not so much brain washed as bribed into staying on the plantation where anything and everything they need are ladled out in does just big enough to keep them down.Same thing is done with poor whites.
What would we expect from the employee of the master of the demon plantation. Jesse is just doing whatever his masters tell him to do and when he isn’t doing that...then he is doing a shake down of some corporation.
Not so much brain washed as bribed into staying on the plantation where anything and everything they need are ladled out in doses just big enough to keep them down.Same thing is done with poor whites.
did he say this in Hymie Town?
Everything upsets black DEMOCRAT voters.
Jessie be all riled up ‘cause he be think’n he’s going to loose his plantation workers. Jessie, meet a real and proud man, Herman Cain. By the way, I would like to see Jessie’s income tax returns - I bet he is one of those rich folk - the ones who takes from the po.
At first I thought it was a rash statement for Cain to make, but now I’m starting to think he may have laid a trap. His actual statement was:
So its just brainwashing and people not being open-minded, pure and simple.
Not being open-minded. That’s the key phrase here. If they are going to protest Cain’s statement, then they will need to (1) declare they are open to conservative ideas, and (2) give some tangible example of being open-minded to conservative ideas.
Which of course, opens the crack into the monolithic black vote Cain can then exploit.
This from one of the Plantation owners.
hey Jesse, do any nut hunting lately?
Jesse Jackson is the Slave Manager on the democrat party plantation.
As long as blacks listen to Jackson, they will remain hopeless and enslaved.
waay down upon the Saawaneee River...
These remarks from Jesse Jackson, “The Hymie Hater”!!! You got to be kidding me!!! Folks, kindly disregard whatever comes from Jesse’s Black racist mouth. Why? Black Americans are slowly, but surely getting it!!! They know they’ve been had by Obama, the CBC and the NAACP!!! Would love to see Cain for POTUS & Rubio for VP. That ticket would destroy the Democrat Party overnight!!! Black folk wake up & get with the program that works for your best interests. And.....it ain’t with following Jesse Jackson and Barack Hussein Obama!!! America is getting ready to rise once again, and this time Black folk if they are smart and have common sense will rise along with America!!! Broom Obama, broom Jackson, broom the CBC, broom the NAACP and finally, really be free and equal!!!
Isn’t Jesse Jackson more of a real cracker than any white guy?
Isn’t his job to keep everyone else in line?
Jesse, the majority of your devotees live on the Federal Plantation.
FU, Jesse Jackoff.
Jesse is scared of the truth.
this justus brother is still ticked he wasn’t the first aa to receive the nomination for prez.
it’s time to CAIN obama in 2012!
Jesse pulled his pants up long enough to comment on this issue?
Je$$ie Jack$on: The man who paid off MLK’s assassin, so that he could take over.
President Lyndon Johnson
Hey Jesse, Here is a “Stong” acronym..
GFY, you snake oil salesman.
Jesse, YOU insult ME every time you open your cotton pickin’ mouf. SIT DOWN AND STFU.
Jesse Jackson is the 1850’s house negro designated by the racist democrat party to keep the slaves in line.
The democrat’s entire racist empire is crumbling all around them. It’s our duty to clean up the few outposts of democrat negro slavery that Sherman missed, even though it’s 150 years late.
It will be interesting to see if the racist, money-grubbing thug Jackson will go down with the slavery ship, clutching hundred dollar bills in his traitorous hands.
When Jesse Jackass speaks, he is barely intelligible.
“Herman Cain just wants to set his people free.”
But... but... but... what about “Holder’s people”?
“I’ll have them ni**ers voting Democratic for two hundred years.”
President Lyndon Johnson - DEMOCRAT
Jesse Jackson, the Shakedown Artist who Just Won’t Go Away.
He should NEVER have been encouraged back in the 60s, but the MSM obviously found him irresistible, with his cutting edge Early Afro, and his marble-mouthed “it’s “rhyme-time” delivery which has gotten MUCH worse as time goes by.
It occurs to me that he may still be tolerated because no one has any idea of what he’s saying.
Jesse is angry because Obama took his place as the HNIC...
Truth hurts. The genie is out of the bottle.
There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.... After all we have been through. Just to think we can't walk down our own streets, how humiliating.
Hey, Jesse Jackson! Yeah, you! “ If the glove fits, we can acquit.” Deal with it.
