World's smallest violin playing for Jesse Jackson Jr.
American Thinker ^ | July 14, 2012 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 07/14/2012 10:41:15 AM PDT by jazusamo

If you thought that Jesse Jackson Jr. had an easy life, growing up the son of a multimillionaire racism entrepreneur, with a seat in Congress virtually handed to him on a platter because of his father's position in Chicago black politics, think again. It turns out, according to his mommy, that he has had a life of "enormous disappointment." Poor Jesse! Poor mommy, too, for now it turns out, according the Jacqueline Jackson, that she was "tricked" into speaking out publicly about her son's years of disappointment.

The bizarre saga of the political Jackson family just gets more and more outlandish. The Congressman took off work for two weeks with no explanation, later informing his constituents that he was in treatment for " exhaustion," later upgraded to treatment for "mood disorder" at a rehab facility in Arizona.

Yesterday, in Chicago, mama Jackson addressed a Rainbow/Push gathering of women of her son's disappointments. Abdon M. Pallasch of the Chicago Sun-Times writes:


Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr.'s mother, Jacqueline Jackson, told a Rainbow/PUSH conference Friday that her son has suffered years of "enormous disappointment."

I feel sorry for every child raised by liberals and socialists. Everything Jesse Jackson, Jr. learned was a terrible lie.

Kids have a terrible time learning about lies and injustice. Imagine if your father was leader of that pack.

I just found out today that JJJr’s wife is on the Chicago city council. (more inbred political mobsters)

So when JJJr is in DC, he’s got this hot little Peruvian restaurant hostess on the side.

No wonder the boy had to go to Arizona for a rest.

You make a good point plus the celebrity type atmosphere they're raised in and the fact they can do no wrong in their circles.

Even the white liberals who run the media in Chicago seem to be tiring of the Jackson charade and being tied to basically unsympathetic appearing race mongers. If they could wave their magic wands and turn every black politician into the “post” racial type they would, and JJjr aint it.

And Jesse, if you listen very carefully, in the background of this next tribute you will be able to hear America crying in this touching ballad:

Just know in your heart, Jesse, I care about you and your family exactly as much as you think I do.

but now... >>Tribune columnist John Kass likes to call the Rev. Jesse Jackson the "King of Beers" because of the way he helped two of his sons get lucrative Budweiser distributorship on the North SIde a few years ago, and likes to tag U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. as (D-Budweiser) or (D-Bud Light). But it's really Yusef Jackson who is the family's Bud Man - and a Crain's article out this week says he may not be doing all that great a job. "Ten years after Anheuser-Busch Cos. conferred the franchise on the Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr.'s youngest son, Chicago remains the largest market where Budweiser is not the best-selling beer," Crain's reports. "[H]is primary business as Budweiser's exclusive distributor in a rich downtown Chicago beer territory gained little ground on market leader." Now, there could be all sorts of reasons for that aside from Yusef Jackson's performance. Who knows why Chicagoans prefer the High Life. Maybe North Side Cubs fans just can't stand the thought of drinking beer brewed in St. Louis by the longtime owner of the Cardinals.

>> Crain's, though, says that if Jackson "doesn't pick up the pace, he could face pressure to sell" his line. Anheuser Busch is "studying the idea of consolidating its network of independent U.S. beer distributors, perhaps by owning many more distributors itself," the Wall Street Journal reported last month. The beer distribution business is something of a no-brainer. "Distributing beer - particularly Anheuser-Busch beer - is known in the industry as a license to print money," the St. Louis Post-Dispatch notes. "That’s because of the stability of beer sales and the protective cover of state franchise laws. Source: http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/Bud-Man-Jackson-Slipping.html#ixzz20dAdmPmc July 2009

For postmodern libtards, the libtard narrative is their reality and ignorance is bliss. When they go through life clueless and stuck on stupid,and when life forces them to have to confront the truth, they can’t handle it and they have a crisis of the soul.

Zero sympathy for anyone related to that Black Racist Jesse Jackson

He was part of the early lynch mob against George Zimmerman and family...and that is not the first. He still gets a pass for slurring Jews with his comment about NYC some years ago

Its time for Jesse Jr to come out truthfully about his problem.

The direct outcome of Affirmative Action and the sense of Black "entitlement" it engenders. Combine that with the abnormally prejudiced crap Big Daddy Jackson has been force-feeding this little puke since he was old enough to scream "Racist!", and you've got the rancid, festering mess this country finds itself in now.

What a pathetic bunch of snivelling "Gimme some!" defectives. These sad sacks have been ruined by Liberal pandering, and are now just a permanent drain on society, and a festering sore in our gut, just waiting to explode and poison the whole body.

Extreme Liberalism is a severe mental disorder, and li'l Junior Jackson is the inarguable proof in the putrefacted pudding.
