Jesse Jackson: 'It's an Honor to Be a Food Stamp President'

Jesse Jackson: 'It's an Honor to Be a Food Stamp President' By Mike Bates Created 02/26/2012 - 6:36pm

Weeks ago, Jesse Jackson accused GOP presidential candidate of "name calling" for referring to President Barack Obama as the "best food-stamp president in American history." But Saturday morning at his Rainbow PUSH forum, broadcast nationally on the Word Network, Jackson appears to have decided that being characterized that way isn't so bad after all.

As he often does, Jackson directed (video here) the audience to repeat his words of wisdom on the subject:

Say, it's an honor to be a food stamp president. Food stamps feed the hungry. Food stamps save the children. Food stamps help the farmer. Food stamps help the truck driver. Food stamps help the warehouse. Food stamps help the store. Food stamps hire people and feed people. Food stamps save people from starvation and malnutrition. Whenever you attack feeding the hungry, you undermine the moral authority of our faith. Give President Barack Obama a big hand. Show your love. Show your appreciation.

So is what Gingrich called Obama an insult or a plaudit? It's unlikely the mainstream media will ask Jackson the question or if he truly believes it's an honor for a president to oversee the addition of more than 10 million people to the food stamp rolls. The sensitive souls who report our news loathe ever putting the Most Reverend Jackson on the spot.

Cooperating "Hood" grocers and convienience store owners gladly exchange ANY Government voucher, EBT-scans, Food Stamps, etc. for cash, at a discounted rate, and make money on the transactions that way.

Happens all the time.

Jesse Jackson: Misery Pimp Extraordinaire. Living larger off racism than any Southern black or white plantation slave owner.

Wow, just wow. The denial of the shakedown artist wishing bread lines to the government on the people.

There's a reason we here who are stuck in The People's Socialist RepubliK of Illinois call him Jesse Jackass.

I remember on Dobie Gillis show, they were going to have the girl get pregnant but decided not to because that would indicate she would have had sex.

Now they can't make shows without as much raunchiness as they can get away with.

In fact I believe all the pretense is gone. We now have 24/7 porn no matter how disguised it is.

Of course he thinks it’s an “honor”, I’m sure a good many of those receiving them have no shame about it, that being the case, he would be “honored” to redistribute the wealth through this avenue all he can.

Two phrases come to mind:

“Defining Deviancy Down” which I think is a Bill Bennett term, and this other one:

“The purpose of the modern Democrat party is to shield people from the consequences of their own bad behavior.”

Food stamps feed the hungry. Food stamps save the children. Food stamps help the farmer. Food stamps help the truck driver. Food stamps help the warehouse. Food stamps help the store. Food stamps hire people and feed people. Food stamps save people from starvation and malnutrition.

Food stamps steal from actual working people. Food stamps punish the productive and reward the indolent. Food stamps are ultimately destructive to society.

Wouldn’t he rather his peeps have the jobs rather than needing the stamps?

Didn't Pelosi also trot out this moronic idea, that government redistribution of resources somehow actually helps the economy? I think she said it referring to tax refund checks or something. These folk really need to take an Econ 101 course from a professor with a mathematics background (and not a political science background).
