Jesse Jackson says GOP Gov. Walker is segregating Wisconsin
The Washington Free Beacon ^ | June 4, 2012 | CJ Ciaramella

Posted on 06/05/2012 6:41:42 AM PDT by kevcol



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...

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.

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.

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.

They’re pulling out all the stops on this one: racism, child neglect, segregation, war on women, homophobia, McCarthyism, the Black Death ...

This will be a referendum on the effectiveness of those tired old cliches as much as Scott Walker.

So the solution is to take the mayor of the city with these problems and make him governor of the whole state?

Jesse probably has the parable of the talents mixed up in his mind. As he remembers it, the man who was given one talent went and lost it all at the race track, but then was praised and given the talents which had earlier been given to the other two men.

“Because of a lack of access to transportation”

When I lived in Milwaukee, in the 70’s and 80’s, there was a great bus system. I went years without even owning a car! Are there no buses now?

Jeffrey Dahmer rode a bus to work there; he didn’t like being so close to black people (unless he was killing them, apparently).

“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.”

I don't think that is true. Cars are expensive, yes, but I don't think there is any prohibition against owning one. And there is all kinds of public transport. I live in Ozaukee County, and we have special buses that pick up in Milwaukee and bring the workers out to the factories and take them home again. Of course it is not convenient, but neither is owning and caring for a car.

We've employed workers from the inner city and their biggest problem is getting tickets for not having a license plate. Other people in the inner city steal their license plates, if the tags are up to date. Savvy people display their license plate in the back window of their cars, instead of their bumpers, so that they are not so easy to steal. Or, they take them inside at night.

I was talking to a Hmong man one day at a car dealership. (We were both waiting for a salesman.) He was looking for a car for his wife, and he told me that where he lives, he takes the battery in at night, or it gets stolen.

So, I challenge gas-bag Jesse. Is any of that Scott Walker's fault?

Yes, those Americans who aren’t you, stuck here on the urban plantation. The Union workers who live comfortably in the suburbs will have sustained employment so that you can have public transportation and still be stuck here in the projects counting on the Welfare Masters to provide for your sustenance.

Face it homie, you ain’t getting none of that $800MM and surely ain’t gettin out of the PJs.3

Oh, and, don’t forget to vote D on Tuesday.

There are plenty of buses, driving around empty. And thre are plenty of bus shelters — mostly empty. As I said above, Jesse is a gas-bag.
