Posted on 02/12/2012 2:51:08 PM PST by Paladins Prayer
Hey, Jackson, is it Samuel L. or Jesse? Actually, it's more likely that the actor was channeling Jeremiah Wright.
In a racial-epithet-laced interview with Ebony magazine, the Pulp Fiction star proved that his politics is a fiction and his head is filled with, well, you fill in the blank. Jackson admitted that he only voted for Barack Obama because of the president's skin color. Said the actor, "I voted for Barack because he was black. 'Cuz that's why other folks vote for other people - because they look like them. That's American politics, pure and simple. [Obama's] message didn't mean **** to me."

I voted AGAINST Obama because of his politics. I wonder which one of us is the American.
The more interesting part is where he basically echoes Chris Rock and says he wants Obama to get “scary” in his second term. They’re openly hoping for a totalitarian police state, essentially. They want blood.
Oh, btw, all these blogs are sucking up FR bandwidth as you can see today. Has the americanthinkerblog donated to FR today? Hmmmm?
*This* "black man" I told myself, out of the 50 million plus black people in this country, is the *best* candidate they could come up with? A faux black foreigner whose only experience it seems was making phone calls for money like a telemarketer? Hmmm....Guess they never heard of Allen West.
No no no, there was another agenda here that had NOTHING to do with race, and evrything with destroying the USA and Capitalism.
I sort of suspected that when I noticed the resemblance to the name Osama Bin-Laden and Obama-Biden.
Like my brother says: "When it comes to terrorists, Conservatives want to fight them. RINOs and liberals onthe other hand want to make them President" and that is exactly what happened here.
Recently he said that "we" should come together because this election year is going to be "turbulent" -- adj 1. Violently agitated or disturbed; tumultuous: turbulent rapids. 2. Having a chaotic or restless character or tendency: a turbulent period in history. 3. Causing unrest or disturbance; unruly: turbulent, revolutionary undercurrents.
Sounds like his people are answering the call. What's next? Shouts of "Take ten!"
Liberals despise the Constitution.
Fudgepacker Sam is a proud racist and doesn’t care who knows it.
I doubt if most of them ever read the US Constitution. They may have read the USSR’s Constitution though. You know like Supreme Court Injustice Ginsberg who prefers the South African Constitution to that of the US.
Samuel, you dumb bass, didn't you notice that most of the people who voted for obama DIDN'T look like him. So, reversing your ignorant logic, you should have voted for that grinning white guy who ran against obama. I forget his name.
-—folks vote for other people - because they look like them.-—
And all the non-black Democrats who voted for Obama did it because he looked like a commie.
I first realized what a vile racist jackson was years ago when he was interviewed at a championship boxing match and unburdened himself of the sick sentiment that he “always roots for the brothers.”
Unfortunately, in this respect, jackson represents his race well. Virulent, vile black racism is the sin that can loudly shout its name — because it is widely practiced in the black community and accepted without objection in the white community
Jackson’s generalizations are stupid and alarming.
When Steele ran against Cardin, he didn't receive 95% of the black vote. It has more to do with party than race.
I despise Obama because of his Marxist politics. I love Herman Cain because of his conservative leanings.
SLJ is diseased rhinoceros pizzle!
I'm hoping and praying that those extra folks are less enamored of him this time around, and won't bother to get to the polls.
Jackson is an idiot.
i guess that makes him half a racist
~ Larry Elder, "The Ten Things You Can't Say In America"
I went to a Catholic school in the late sixties. The school featured a prominent picture of John Kennedy five years after his death. I never saw a picture of LBJ. Greeks like Dukakis because he was one of their own. Mormons will probably have a soft spot for Romney. A hispanic will no don’t capture the lion’s share of the latino vote. I think that this is natural. Just don’t ever say that you were voting for someone because they are white (lol). After forty-four white guys, wouldn’t you expect that the African Americans would have a sense of pride for a black president? I just wish it was Thomas Sowell.
“Check out the lack of brains on Samuel.”
I guess Jackson proves that some actors are really as dumb as the characters they play on the screen.
When Obama ran against Hillary Clinton in the North or South Carolin primary, he received 95% of the Black vote. Even though Clinton’s and Obama’s policies were almost exactly the same.
Colon Powell did the same thing and he is supposd to be smart.
They don’t know what they want. They are too stupid.
The reasons people vote for candidates is as subjective as anything else. I am certainly not surprised why should anyone be.
You finally had a “Black” candidate and people are surprised that blacks voted for him?
The scary thing out there in America is how little people actually pay attention to the issues and also how limited in Intelligence so many are that do vote.
At least he is honest about it. I’d say he’s a 1 percenter in that respect.
“’Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people - because they look like them.”
Hm...Allen West vs John McCain...ALLEN!
Hm...J.C. Watts vs George W. Bush...J.C.!
Sammy - your head must be full of air.
It is scary, and what did he expect Obama to do when the great Joe Wilson called him a liar from the floor of congress? Did he want obama to go ____ on him go down and try to kick his butt or pull a gun out and unload while holding it sideways?
Jackson is a nitwit. If the skinny, sickly obama (AIDS?) ever got in a closed off room with Mr. Wilson, obama would likely have his butt kicked.
Many actors are ignorant, robot, tape recorders. They spew back what others program them with. Unfortunately, they get paid really well.
I agree on the first part. It is our so called media that thinks this racists words, (and that is what he has admitted to} are the real morons thinking we give a crap what an actor thinks.
He does have an action figure though.
BTW, I does this clown have a role in the upcoming Marvel super hero movie where they all combine together? arrrghhh, so sad. I, and my family, will skip out on it.
Negros can’t be racist! They be oppressed! Samuel Jackson makes millions of dollars but he still be oppressed by the Man! Only Whitey can be racist, and its racist to criticize the Messiah, Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama!
I did not vote for Obama because he is an empty suit with no managerial experience that cannot survive without his teleprompter. Now who is the racist.
Does that mean his brain would explode if Colin Powell ran against Barack Obama?
Ain't no fat, bearded hunkies in the race this year, so I guess I'll have to sit this one out.........what a stupid way to choose who to put into the most powerful office in the world.
I was going to say at least he admitted it and see if he saw the light- but he doubles down on it
He will vote for him again he hopes it get violent
no mention of policies, he just wants that black man to win.
They want blood...
Be glad to oblige..
Hence my tag line which is also my bumper sticker.
Avengers? I'm afraid so...
