Skip to comments.Boo Hoo: MSNBC Hosts Are “Sad” Jesse Jackson Jr. Got Caught
Posted on 02/22/2013 11:19:56 AM PST by South40
After reading about the money he stole, the expensive swag he bought with campaign funds, and the constituents he ultimately betrayed, its hard to feel anything but contempt for disgraced celebrity son and former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. But apparently not everyone agrees with me. Indeed, the folks over at Morning Joe are -- wait for it -- saddened by his downfall (via Jazz Shaw):

I’m sad his old man is not going with him.
I am sad he’s alive.
Which means he’s nothing special, I guess..
Just a reminder about how Jesse Jr. became wealthy in the first place. Back in the 80’s when Jesse Sr. was getting his extortion racket going, one of his first corporate victims was Coca Cola. They were accused of not having enough minority distributors, and as part of their shakedown deal they agreed to give distributorships to blacks. The very first of these was to give a big area of Chicago to none other than Jesse Jr.
Getting caught only proves that young Jerkson is more stupid than his idiot father.
What’s the big deal? Its not like he drank from a water bottle or something horrible.
Any time a prominent Republican gets caught doing anything illegal, there's non-stop smirking at MSNBC and to a slightly lesser degree at the other alphabet networks, and the morning shows such as "The View" with Meredith Vieira and Whoopi Goldberg.
Particularly when the Republican is caught texting sexual messages to a young male page, or patronizing a prostitute, or doing anything else that's inconsistent with a family values agenda. The worst offense in the Democratic Party's quasi-religion is Republican hypocrisy. Democratic hypocrisy in such matters is carefully ignored for the most part.
Did Mika offer sad grunts today?
I saw the whole family did not end it all.
The thing is, with no morals (D-rat), whatever they do is ok.
But Republicants are “supposed” to be the responsible party etc. so it’s “b-ad” when a R does something wrong.
Both parties are actually sides of the same coin, just R’s pretend to be conservative.
no worries , JJ jr will be back to his old self when Obama gives him his pardon ,maybe he’ll get a show there
I stand corrected.
So let me see, I assume they are saying they are SAD he got caught.......but NOT SAD he committed a crime!
Our morals are in the tank and the lame stream media is part of the reason why!
I do not care what the political affiliation, the social status of the family, etc. We may have too many laws, but the basic ones should be adhered to. Theft, assault, murder and liberalism should all be punishable.
I was not "sad" when Duke Cunningham (R, Calif.) got caught with his hand in the cookie jar and was sent to prison. He abused his power and accepted his fate. I have to wonder though, did his fall from grace sadden the libs at MSNBC or are they just saddened when the criminal congressman is a dem?
I didn't make it happen but I'm glad it did.
The BULL Squeeze don’t fall too far from the BULL...
The dung beetles then go to work..
Its almost poetic that Dung beetles are BLACK...
Irony can indeed stink...
That site exudes an evil odor, similar to what wafted over parts of Central Europe in the early to mid forties.
The bizarre thing is that whatever Democrats try to do in Congress, they claim "It's for the children."
Gun grabbing? "It's for the children, think of those poor victims at Sandy Hook and Columbine. No, this is not about controlling rural white males, who tend to vote for Republicans."
Education spending? "It's for the children. Think of those underprivileged children. Their only chance is to get a good education so that they can get a good job. No, this is not about giving more money and power to the teachers' unions, who tend to vote for Democrats."
Public housing? Public aid? "It's for the children. Think of those underprivileged children. You want us to throw them out on the street? No, this is not about providing a base of operations for their drug-dealing, gangster fathers and their prostitute mothers, who tend to vote for Democrats."
But when a Democratic Congressman wants to sodomize a young male page, or when a Democratic voter wants to abort her unborn child, or when children are buying drugs from gang members wearing Obama T-shirts, those children don't deserve protection.
liberals are nothing if not hypocrites.
