Freepers, I am one of a small number of conservatives on this campus. I do not approve of Jackson's racist pilth being spewed here. I would like some opinions about what to do about this?

It'll obviously be a Bush-bash. You might wanna get a group of your fellow conservatives together and hand out some flyers containing actual truthful information -- namely, the incompetant and continuous failures of both Mayor Nagin and Gov. Blanco.

Good luck.

By address, you mean he will point the finger of blame, make excuses, shirk all responsibility for personal behavior and choices, disparage the President and Senate, and then move on to his next shakedown.

And his supporters deserve the leadership they choose to follow, and the benefits they have received to date.

The only people that listen to this race-baiting, lying, adulterous, HYPOCRITE are the ignorant, the wanna-be race victims, and the dysfunctional libs who need their daily dose of Bush bashing to justify the corruption, deceit and thuggery that supports their fine political party...

It's definitely not free. College tuition is paying this man's fees and...uh...expenses. If I were student paying my own way, or a parent paying tuition for a student, I would definitely flood the school with phone calls protesting this waste.

If there is any racial strife in this country it is caused by Jackson and his ilk.

LOL....my husband received his degree (Reverend) from Universal Church in California. Jessee holds no degree, other than an honorary bestowed upon him by his own son.

This Jesse got his comeuppance in Northfield in 1876 ... but I suppose thieves aren't dealt with as efficiently these days.

Who the heck is St. Olaf?

King and patron saint of Norway, from the 11th century. Helped establish Christianity as the religion of Norway.

Good catch. By coincidence I was just talking yesterday with someone who mentioned about Jesse James going to Northfield MN.

Well, this Jesse is a shakedown artist in his own right.

Jesse James was absolutely faithful to his wife, so I think he gets some points over Jackson.

Oh, Im sure the place will be packed, these loony college liberals would go applaud Satan himself if he was bashing conservatives. What really ticks me off is that they use the church as a pulpit for this kind of pilth. Its no wonder that lightning struck down the cross at the beginning of the year.

Unless he goes out there and starts saying "I am the cause for a good portion of the racial divide in the last 20 years" I don't really care what he preaches about.

"If there is any racial strife in this country it is caused by Jackson and his ilk." And all the bleeding heart, guilt ridden "liberals" who need to believe that they are "good" people and not "racists".

Bingo! Exactly right. Who cares anymore? Who's got the time or the inclination and energy to go out to oppress "the brothers". People have jobs (sometimes 2 jobs), bills and families to deal with.

Not to down St. Olaf (I live in Mpls.), but look at it this way, Jackson has lost alot of his 'audience'. He now has to make appearances at small town colleges.

Remind Jesse' that POOR PEOPLE (who were on display in NO) have POOR HABITS.....and those POOR HABITS are what he and the Democratic Party want them to KEEP practicing....so they can keep them on their "Plantation."

I know exactly what's going here. St. Olaf has been recruiting football players from Florida. St. John's pasted them 63-9 on Saturday. Jesse is up there to cry foul since the brothers got clubbed.

You have my sympathies. As for what to do about it, I don't have an answer. I doubt you could get away with picketing his appearance. You could always contact the alumnis and let them know where their money is being spent...or are they a bunch of jackass worshippers too?

Good luck!

Use the Ann Coulter solution, hit jesse with a pie, but spit on the pie first. Jesse admitted that when he was a worker??? at a resturant, he would spit in the food that was going out to the "white folks". He has always been a class act. LOW CLASS.

If I have the details right, some years ago, JJ was in California for a shakedown. The CEO of some company put JJ on the defensive, by asking him where he got his money. It was great to see JJ back down.

I laud any company that can put a stop to JJ's extortion racket. Unfortunately, it seems that a lot of businesses have been raped and pillaged by this guy without any resistance. Too bad all the energy and expense being put out to fry Lewis Libby couldn't be used to throw this fraud's sorry butt in the slammer.

Jesse was down here in New Orleans and said he would bring 200 people back to New Orleans for the clean-up jobs. There is NO housing to be had in New Orleans but that didn't matter to "Hey, look at me" Jackson. Anyway, when they finally arrived, 20 people on the bus were from here and 180 were from other parts of the country. Mayor Nagin wouldn't let them stay because they weren't from here. Even the 20 from here realized that this was a bad situation and returned to the busses Others got right back on the bus to return home. O.K. Nagin=black + Jackson=black? Was there racism involved here? I think not - Common sense tells you to stay out of places that have no good drinking water, no electricity, no telephones, no housing and no jobs! On free republic as wekk as some websites there was a moment by moment account that occurred right after the hurricane. I do have the account but may have to mail it from another location.
