Jesse Jackson says GOP Gov. Walker is segregating Wisconsin

MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Speaking at two rallies Sunday and Monday, Rev. Jesse Jackson compared Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker to segregationist Alabama governor George Wallace and said Walker is perpetuating segregation in Milwaukee.
.
.
“Why is Milwaukee so segregated and so-locked out? Because of a lack of access to transportation,” Jackson told the press alongside a group of local church leaders. “If you are in fact on welfare, you can’t own a car.Without public transportation, you can’t get to the job, and the job can’t get to you.”

That is why, Jackson said, Milwaukee has become the “poorest and most segregated city in the state.”

“The governor of this state refused to accept $800 million from President Obama,” Jackson said, drawing boos from the small audience outside a downtown municipal building. “He turned down the jobs creator. That was money for Americans who can make the steel, lay the rails, build the trains, unite Milwaukee and Madison and Chicago, and put Wisconsin and Illinois and America back to work.
.
.
Under Barrett’s leadership, African American joblessness rose by 150 percent in Milwaukee.

Jackson appeared at both events in a Mercedes Benz S550 and was escorted by a Cadillac Escalade ESV. The starting price of the S550 is about $100,000; the Escalade retails for almost $70,000.

If it means keeping people like Jesse the race baiting bastard away from people like me, then I’m all in.

Solution: eliminate welfare and then people can go buy a car and then travel to their jobs using private transport.

So easy even a caveman can...

Look at that face; he looks like *death warmed-over*. Must be in bad health or something.

When the only tool you have is a race-hammer, all problems look like race-nails.

The history books will eventually record that this man has done more to keep racism alive than anyone of any color. His legacy will be one of shame and disgust.

I am certain of few things in life, but that’s one thing I’d bet the farm on. That and the fact that the urine will flow freely on his grave.

When the time comes for Jesse America will be a better place.

There's not too many people one could say that about.

“He turned down the jobs creator.”


Walker has a better track record at creating jobs than Obama. So Walker turned down himself?

Jackson is so confusing.

I thought their cheif mode of transportation was "borrowing" their cousin's car.

Assumes facts not in evidence.

What percentage of long-term welfare recipients actually want to get a job?

Every one knows Jessie Jackson is a lying socialist piece of it any way, the only question is, just what is he going to lie about next.

Over the years, I’ve wondered why Jesse hasn’t attempted to extort the US Olympic Committee (Winter Olympics) for it’s blatantly racist under-representation by blacks.

The day is coming when Jesse and Al will meet their Maker. I don’t think it’s going to be pretty.

Seriously.

Look what happens to any suburban mall once the light rail stop is added from the nearby inner city.

Ah, yes, Recall Day in Wisconsin would not be complete without Reverend Jesse “Jagmo” Jackson weighing in with his racist-segregationist dog and pony show. This dork is so tiresome; stick a fork in him because he's done.

And Tom Barrett wants to open that availability to transportation by building a $100 million 2 mile trolly that goes in a circle to serve his lilly-white supporters on the East Side.

Screw you Jesse...your time is up.
