Rev. Jackson Calls on Obama to Stop Chicago Violence February 04, 2013 Windows Media
RUSH: The Reverend Jackson, in Chicago. The Reverend Jackson and other relatives of victims of fatal shootings, in Chicago. Do you know, the lawlessness in Chicago, the gun violence in Chicago is now greater than when Al Capone's gang ran the town? Did you know that, Rachel? You want to know something else? There was no gun control when Al Capone was running around running things. Back during the glory days of Chicago, no gun control. Now they've got some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, and they got gun violence occurring in record levels. The Reverend Jackson and relatives want federal action. They have called on noted expert Barack Obama to do something. Here is the Reverend Jackson from Saturday in Chicago.
JACKSON: We look at death coming down the street and can't stop it. We need federal intervention. It must be seen as a threat to national security. It's not just local. When the president shows up, it shows ultimate national seriousness.
RUSH: Let me translate in case the quality of our recording equipment was not up to speed there. The Reverend Jackson said, "We look at death coming down the street and we can't stop it. We need federal intervention. It must be seen as a threat to national security. It's not just local. When the president shows up, it shows ultimate national seriousness." So the Reverend Jackson is calling on violence and gun control expert Barack Obama to come back home and fix it.
I don't know. Don't ask me. I'm not the expert in fixing this. Obama is. He's supposed to go there and get people to stop killing each other. It's an issue of national security.
No, no, no, no, no, not black troops. He's supposed to go there, and just him going there and being serious about it is all... if he would show up, it would mean ultimate national seriousness. That alone would convince people to stop killing each other in Chicago. That's what Jesse Jackson said. Obama just needs to show up, just needs to come home. That would do it. That would show national seriousness. Jackson is not talking about the National Guard, Snerdley. Federal intervention is the expert in all this. Obama coming home and fixing it. Maybe he's calling for federal police. If he is, it just means he's calling for Obama.
RUSH: What the Reverend Jackson truly wants is federal police. He wants Department of Homeland Security to help patrol the streets of Chicago. If you read the article, that's what he wants. Now, he does want Obama to show up. Look what Obama's done. He's fixed the deficit. He fixed health care. He went to the Middle East and ignited the Arab Spring with his speech in Cairo. That's safe. He fixed Iraq. He fixed Afghanistan, fixed waterboarding, fixed Club Gitmo, and captured bin Laden.
Jesse Jackson simply said (summarized), "Would you come home? Would you do something for us and come home here and show some national seriousness on this?" He wants the Department of Homeland Security to help patrol the streets of Chicago, and I just want to remind you: Remember how some people on our side were laughed at, mocked, and made fun of as conspiracy kooks for worrying that Homeland Security could end up being our national police?
I think Reverend Jackson wants Obama to come to Chicago and bring his gun. (interruption) What? (interruption) If I call for national police? (interruption) Well, come on! Snerdley is asking what would happen if I called for national police in minority neighborhoods. Come on! Of course nobody's gonna say that about the Reverend Jackson. I just say if Obama shows up, take his gun. You saw the picture of Obama skeet shooting at Camp David.
You know, I haven't wanted to bring that up. The people that are experts in skeet shooting are saying that they're a little dubious of the legitimateness of the picture because, I gotta tell you, the smoke coming out of the barrel doesn't look right. The angle of the shotgun doesn't look like there's any kick-back. (interruption) He's not aiming it high enough, I know. But Obama could be so good that he's waiting for it to hit the ground before he shoots it.
At that very moment before it hits the ground, he fires. He could be that good. Most people, you know, try to shoot the sporting clay or the skeet at its apex, the apogee. But Obama could be so good, he could be waiting at Colin Kaepernick territory down there, like six feet off the ground to blow the thing up. He could be that good. Anyway, that's what the Reverend Jackson wants.
Sorry Jesse, he’s too busy stopping the rise of the oceans
Like he’s gonna help.
I know it doesn’t mean much to a d__ass but
“Hey Jesse: The President has NO authority to do anything of the sort. “
Go to a third world country if you want the monarch to dictate.
What, he didn’t stop it while he was a community organizer and Senator?
Chicago and Detroit ARE third world
Well, they should restrict gun ownership, that should do it!
I give BO about 6 months of bloviating on all this liberal dribble, then he’s off on vacations and golfing and watching sports full time. The only thing he does is fly around on AF1 and give campaign speeches because I think he thinks it’s fun. What does he actually do, other than that. Sure, he sits for softball interviews, but that’s just more pampering and sucking up which he enjoys. He likes being treated like a king, but doesn’t like to actually work.
Not Third World, but Turd World.
Hey, since it’s Obama’s fictitious progeny and no likely many of Jesse Jackson’s actual progeny causing all the trouble, why don’t they both just step up to the plate, be the daddy-rabbit and stop it without involving any level of government?
Maybe a gang summit with Omumba, Biden, Oprah, Jesse and the Crips and the Bloods and the Blackstone Rangers and Rahm? With ABCCBSNBCCNNMTV televising it and maybe some colored plastic bracelets to “raise awareness”?
And this is how Obama will start his federal police movement. The Chicago machine has been tremendously successful in taking over America. I suspect this will play out perfectly for them as well. They don’t seem to ever lose.
It would appear that “national seriousness” is a new term for massive federal subsidy, starting with large payments to Rev. Jesse’s local organization. Which just happens to pay Rev. Jesse a very large salary. See also, “gun control justice”, meaning large federal government payments to minority interest groups in effected areas.
Hey Jesse, you’re good at shaking down corporations. Go in there and shake down these numerous gangs, make them an offer they can’t refuse to stop shooting each other and innocents.
onama will not even mention Chicago. He is so apparently IGNORING Chicago that it is becoming pathetically clear he has no intention whatsoever of acknowledging that Chicago has become a death camp for black people.
Black people? Your ‘brutha’ does not love you...unless you can contribute thousands or even millions to his favorite charity...himself.
He does not care if you live or die as long as you keep it in the family. You are an embarrassment to him and all of his rich friends. When was the last time beyonce or jz was in your neighborhood? You will never be invited to a party at the whitehouse or a barbecue at barry’s house because you don’t fit so why should he feed you or fete you? You are black, poor, and uneducated...just the way he wants you...and the way your ‘leaders’ have kept you. Without you, their moneytap is gone. Without you to exploit, they would be just like you. Think about it if you dare think for yourself.
I call on him to turn back the tides !
