Jackson, Jr. Calls on Rick Perry to Condemn ‘N*****head’
ABC News ^ | Oct 6, 2011 | John Parkinson

Posted on 10/06/2011 11:04:13 AM PDT by Baladas

Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. submitted a resolution today in the House of Representatives to “call on Rick Perry to apologize for not immediately doing away with the rock that contained the word ‘N*****head’ at the entrance of a ranch he was leasing on and which he was taking friends, colleagues and supporters to hunt.”

The Illinois Democrat took to the House floor today to read the resolution, and recapped the details of a Washington Post article titled, “Rick Perry and a Word Set on Stone,” which revealed details of the Texas governor’s association with a piece of hunting property in Texas, where a slab-like rock read “N*****head” for many years.

“It calls on Governor Rick Perry to condemn the use of this word as being totally offensive and inappropriate at any time and at any place in United States history,” Jackson said of the resolution. “Lastly, it calls upon Governor Rick Perry to list the names of all lawmakers, friends and financial supporters he took with him on his hunting trips to N*****head.”

Still trying that old trick they had so much success with with George Allen in that Senate seat a few years back. A resolution over a rock in a remote Texas ranch?

Yep it sure seems like they are following the Macaca playbook.

I was frustrated about the Macaca thing because the Washington Post ran a series of articles telling us that Macaca was a terrible slur and insult. They had to “educate” us that George Allen was such a terrible bigot.

And it was like nothing else mattered in the campaign except that George Allen said Macaca. It didn’t matter that he apologized for giving offense, or that no offense was intended. All that mattered was that the Wash. Post decided that Macaca was an ethnic slur, and that this was the only issue in the campaign that mattered.

Will the same happen with Perry and Negro Head rocks???? We’ll see.

I remember JJJ’s behavior all too well during Obamacare when he conducted the vote. That smug, arrogant look. I’ll NEVER forget it.

A Racist hustler calling a non-racist a racist. It got him into office and his father into a mansion.

What Mr. Jess I. Jackoff Junior wants is to keep the ‘story’ alive.

I wonder how big that rock is? Does he suggest getting rid of the coral reefs and everything else that has been called the same thing? Does the EPA need to be informed of this?

If Perry wipped it out and pissed on the rock that would not make Jackson happy. He'd say that Perry was either trying to pee the paint off or wanted to piss on a "nigg....".

Race.. Shmace..! Who cares what color someone is? I don't. But I have to hear about this skin color garbage constantly being spewed by people that are racists. All while I see a man like Herman Cain being promoted by so many people that happen to be white.

It is amazing how mainstream stupidity is.....

Is it possible to pass a law that all elected members of Congress have to pass a minimal I.Q. test? That would eliminate Jackson Jr. and most of the other members of the Black National Racial Grievance Caucus or whatever it’s called. Eliminate most white Dems congresscritters as well.

To my recollection ,Perry was a Democrat in the “80’s and 90’s”so go ahead and give him all the names of those Democrats he took to the ranch.

If Perry wants to score points with the voters, he will simply say: “I have addressed it and I’m moving on. Further, I will engage in no games where the likes of Jessie Jackson are allowed to make the rules”.

If that were to occur, you can bet the farm that the passing standard would be lowered for (((some))) of them.

Why would I let others set my agenda?

Reporter:
“Guv, What do you have to say about....”

Perry:
“Nothing!” “This nation has real problems requiring my attention, and that’s not one of them.”

Actually, I think it would be funny if Perry obliged junior by saying “In deference to Jesse Jackson, Junior’s speech on the floor of the house, I hereby condemn the man.”

For the life of me I can’t understand the idea that it is ok for rappers to use that word continously. Even Whoopi uses it all the time, yet they go after Perry even though he did nothing wrong.

I think Rick Perry should go on national TV and apologize with something like:

"Yes, I am sorry for that rock being there, But, I didn't know any better since I was a democrat back then."

Just thought of this also; JJJ needs to condemn JJ for wanting to cut the n*ts off Barack Obama. That would have been microsurgery at best.
