Boo Hoo: MSNBC Hosts Are “Sad” Jesse Jackson Jr. Got Caught
Townhall.com ^ | 2/22/2013 | Daniel Doherty

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, it’s 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):

It is a sad story. Doesn’t mean that I'm not glad that the Jackson's got caught.

No, no fecking way this is sad. If anything it was predictable as snow in winter.
He deserves everything he's brought upon himself - including our condemnation.

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.

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.

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.

Supposedly.

Both parties are actually sides of the same coin, just R’s pretend to be conservative.

It'’s true that the Jackson's deserve anything that they get. It is just sad that they are thieves.

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'm sad when a rabbit gets hit by a car. I'm sad when a Government agency picks the wrong house and kills a person or a dog. When someone steals and goes to prison I am not sad. When someone steals and does not go to prison I am sad.

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 couldn't agree more.

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?

That site exudes an evil odor, similar to what wafted over parts of Central Europe in the early to mid forties.

That's the guy. Democrats fought tooth and nail to protect him from impeachment, and then re-elected him for the next 20 years or so.

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.

The Mark Foley "scandal" revolved around him allegedly sending sexually explicit instant messages to an underage page. I think it was wring, but that's just me. The left, however, defended Studds' perverted tryst with an underage page wherein he actually had gay sex with the boy and you're right, the even reelected him. This was after he turned his back to members of congress while they read the censure.

liberals are nothing if not hypocrites.
