Jesse Jackson Says Tea Party Wants To Sink Ship To ‘Destroy Captain’
CBS Detroit ^ | March 29, 2012 | Carol Cain

Posted on 03/29/2012 2:02:22 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

DETROIT (CBS 62) Rev. Jesse Jackson stopped by the Michigan Matters set to talk with host Carol Cain about developments in the Trayvon Martin murder case and the emergency manager saga playing out in Detroit.

Jackson also offered a frank assessment of Gov. Rick Snyder’s dealings with the Motor City financial crisis. “You can’t separate the largest organ in your body from who you are,” he said about the state’s relationship with the city. “Detroit doesn’t have a problem, Michigan has a problem. Why is Detroit in crisis? We bailed out the automotive industry but the city has not been able to be part of that.”

Jackson fought against the proposed consent agreement between the state and Detroit, saying “I cannot fathom suspending our democracy in the name of emergency…There should be a bigger table for an emergency summit meeting.”

And he took on the issue of the Detroit minister Malik Shabazz who told everyone at the recent emergency manager meeting residents would “burn the city down” before giving it over to an outside group for financial oversight.

“If the man said that on the council … I would take it more seriously… I can understand expressing pain. That should not characterize the mood of Detroit… They want Detroit to come alive and I think we should focus on that.”

We want to save the ship. If we have to toss the Captain overboard to do that, so be it.

Oh, I thought “words matter”. They certainly do when the left parses every word from the right for “dog whistles”.

“Detroit doesn’t have a problem”

No, not at all. That is not why I saw the writing on the wall and got the heck out of there almost 40 years ago.

Jesse Jackson needs to stop stereotyping. Each of us in the Tea Party MUST be dealt with individually... anything else is a form of racism.

Jesse Jackson needs the TEA Party so he has an audience, the fornicating POS. A friend of mine works in a black school district here in NJ, and she said the outrage felt by the black teachers was palpable when his “baby-daddy” story broke. Here he was lecturing black youth about children out of wedlock, and Oops!

That was when he lost his throne to Al Sharpton, who has retained the title of “King Of All Blacks” ever since. Remember the bitter power struggle, with Al pointing out that he didn’t have to wipe MLK’s blood on his shirt?

Good times, and great payback for the GWB DWI story...

Lookout: Captain! There's a Greek ship foundering on the reef ahead.

Helmsman: What should we do?

Captain: Increase speed!

The People are the Captain of the Ship. The TOTUS is just the pilot and can be tossed overboard at will.

If people in Detroit want their city to ‘come alive’ they need make it happen. That DOES NOT include shaking down people in other cities - cities that made better decisions.

Here’s a hint - every industry that became heavily unionized, left. Went overseas.. Unions kill jobs in the long run.

Detroit’s a Democrat city - let them come up with a democrat solution. They can tax EACH OTHER - and share that wealth. Or they can raise city pensions to a million each - and share THAT wealth. Or give everyone in the city unlimited FREE health care - by TAXING THEIR OWN RESIDENTS... Let’s see liberalism in action - when the folks there gotta pay for it.

No, Jessie. The ship’s already run aground. We just want to replace the interloping captain so we can move on when the next tide comes in.

I’m hoping you’ll hang on to the sinking ship and go down with him Jesse? And by the way, Jesse, where is your ordination certificate? Should Sheriff Joe go looking for it?

Thanks Free ThinkerNY.
And he took on the issue of the Detroit minister Malik Shabazz who told everyone at the recent emergency manager meeting residents would "burn the city down" before giving it over to an outside group for financial oversight.
And by "took on" the partisan media shill pushing this swill means, sidestepped it by saying it wasn't important.

I saw him on the local news tonight and he was sitting at the table with the Detroit City Council. My first thought what is race-pimp#1 doing in Detroit. What the hell business is it of his? More face time on TV?

" We bailed out the automotive industry but the city has not been able to be part of that.”

It sure as heck wasn't the Tea Party that ever suggested that bailing out GM and Chrysler would do any good

Jesse and his community organizing pals did for Detroit what they want to do for America. I hope fail.

Detroit’s in crisis because Detroit put themselves there by elected bad people.
