Skip to comments.Jesse Jackson Claims the Tea Party Is the ‘Resurrection of the Confederacy’ (Umm, umm)
Posted on 08/27/2013 3:08:26 PM PDT by yoe
As Americans prepare to mark the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.s I have a dream speech during the March on Washington, Rev. Jesse Jackson has decided now would be a good time to accuse the Tea Party of being just like the Confederacy.
The Tea Party is the resurrection of the Confederacy, its the Fort Sumter Tea Party, Jackson told (Politico), referring to conservative opposition to President Barack Obama.
Jackson said he is absolutely convinced that Republican opposition to Obama has more to do with race than it does with actually opposing White House policy.

BTW, has anybody photoshopped a grenande into Bambi’s hand yet?
No Mr. Jackson. The Tea Party is not associated with Democrat slave owners and the KKK.
Jesse is an even bigger MORON than I thought he was.
As Gutfeld just pointed out on The Five, almost ALL those CONFEDERATES were DEMOCRATS!!!
Yeah, it’s Tea party policies that are keeping blacks down, not Democratic party policies. It’s decades of our education policies, our welfare policies, our family/social policies, our moral policies, and our economic policies that are causing black people all their problems. Sure.
Jesse jacka$$ should know slavery was a 100% cloning tax on blacks. What a moron.
Jackson is busy overtaking a number of other suspects as No. 1 American scoundrel.
Jesse Jackson, Perpetual Victim
That’s the singular point that should be hammered relentlessly by every Tea Party voice 24/7/365.
Fight back without remorse, fear or shame.
Jackson isn’t any smarter then he was 20 years ago.
Hey UNCLE Jesse, just remember: ain’t no black man ever lynched by a REPUBLICAN!
That’s great musicman... “Americans who love their country and respect it’s laws and Constitution...” Jesse Jackson’s answer: who are white racists... Peckerwood for a thousand Alex...
if we are the resurrection of the confederacy..
THEY are the resurrection of the third reich..
or of stalin, lenin, mao, or any other dictator with a large number of murders on their hands..
The Reverends Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, while visiting a primary school class, found themselves im the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings. The teacher asked both men if they would like to lead the discussion of the word tragedy.
So the illustrious Rev Jackson asks the class for an example of a tragedy.
One little boy stood up and offered: If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a runaway tractor comes along and knocks him dead, that would be a tragedy.
No, says the Great Jesse Jackson, that would be an accident.
A little girl raised her hand: If a school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy.
Im afraid not, explains the exalted Reverend Al. Thats what we would call a great loss.
The room goes silent. No other children volunteered.
Reverend Al searches the room. Isnt there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?
Finally at the back of the room little Johnny raises his hand. In a stern voice he says: If a plane carrying the Reverends Jackson and Sharpton were struck by a missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy.
Fantastic! exclaims Jackson and Sharpton, Thats right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?
Well, says little Johnny, because it sure as hell wouldnt be a great loss, and it probably wouldnt be an accident either.
At one time, I thought blacks/whites could live in harmony but after five years of “cops acting stupidly” , “ Americans are coward when it comes to race discussions”, the canonization of Trayvon Martin , and the severely under-reported, skyrocketing black on white crime rate, I hope Jackson is right.
With sincere apologies to Walter Williams , the great Thomas Sowell and the other 10% of conservative blacks, I no longer give a f—k about blacks.
Bring on a new Confederacy....
I’m waiting for the Je$$ie Jacka$$ “I Have a Scheme” speech.
I say Jackson's speech sounds like an attempt to incite a riot, from either side!
Must be the eve of Hate Whitey day.
Pray for America to Wake Up
If the Confederacy is rising, then the Union is in decline. How’d that happen, Jesse?
You stole my Muttley.
As if waving King’s bloody shirt is going to scare me.
Go pay child support you stupid jackass.
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory! Hallelujah!
Glory! Glory, Hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.
DERN right wing tea party plum taking over out here in JERSEY.
Something's got to change.
Imagine the media's reaction to a conservative standing up and claiming that the Obama regime is the resurrection of King George's rule over us as colonies to be exploited for personal gain (which is closer to the truth than ol' Action Jackson's claim!).
The Confederacy was run by southern Democrats. Jackson is just reinforcing the Democrats’ big lie - that the Tea Party is racist. Jackson needs his devils to scare his black constituency. If he had no racist enemies, he’d have nothing to talk about and no reason for being.
If blacks want to seek reparations, they should go first to the Democrats, who kept them down for 130 years.
While he’s making illogical analogies to the Civil War, our historic, Nobel Peace Prize winning Pres_ent is fixing to touch of World War III in the Middle East. Something is VERY wrong here, on many levels....
Why do they still call him”Reverend” and what did DemRATs offer that he couldn’t get from God?
