Jesse Jackson Says Gov. Brewer ‘Gave President Obama the Finger’

Jesse Jackson Says Gov. Brewer ‘Gave President Obama the Finger’ By Mike Bates Created 01/28/2012 - 9:37pm

It was a routine Saturday morning at Rev. Jesse Jackson's Rainbow PUSH forum, broadcast nationally on the Word Network. He was all over the map. Jackson trashed Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater, Newt Gingrich, and Mitt Romney. He warned that enterprises such as black funeral homes and black insurance companies are “under attack.” He condemned a proposed change in Grammy Award classifications. Jackson also spoke out against Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who, he said, “did the ultimate insult. She put her finger in his (President Barack Obama) face.” Jackson wants people to call and complain (video here):

Also, while it’s on my mind, Gov. Janice K. Brewer, the finger person. Gov. Janice K. Brewer, who gave President Obama the finger, governor of Arizona, call 1 800 253 0883. Keep that line real busy. 1 800 253 0883. We’ll give you the number later a little later today and this week on the email number of her press secretary. We want to keep Arizona. . . until she can put her hands in her pocket and have some good. . . do you know how insulting it is to put your finger in somebody’s face? Try it with the cameras rolling, she knew the cameras.

She knew what she was doing. She was telling him off. She was cutting him down to his size. She must never get away with that. Even George Wallace did not put his finger in Dr. King’s face. Say, enough is enough.

Being the pious, innocent, saintly man he is, perhaps the Most Rev. Jackson deserves a pass. Maybe he doesn’t actually know the difference between giving someone the finger and waving one’s finger in another person’s face. But does he really consider the latter to be “the ultimate insult”? For a man who’s referred to Jews as “Hymies,” said in the last campaign that “Barack’s been talking down to black people” and that he would like to cut Obama's testicles out, and admitted to, as a young waiter, having spit into the food of white customers he didn’t like, Jackson has a remarkable notion of what comprises the ultimate insult.

Naturally, Jackson’s blunder will be ignored by the mainstream media. He’s always given a pass. But the very next time “the black view” is needed on a story, he’ll be front and center and ready for his close-up.

If Jesse Jackson says it, it must be true!

If the governor did as Jesse said she did, she’s my hero for life!

Yeah, and if he’d had lunch with her, she was gonna spit in it before it was served. Just like Jesse when he was a waiter back in the day.

Hmmm, I wonder if he’d have referred to himself as a “server” to be politically correct if he was waiting tables/spitting on food today?

Does anybody have an update on the (male) assistant suing Jesse Jackson for sexual harassment?

I wonder if it’s another Obama + Larry Sinclair sort of situation.

Dear Jesse,

Guess what? The majority of American citizens, if given the chance, woould give Obama the finger. Let’s hope that that finger is also used come November to get the creep out of office and out of our lives forever.

As we have long predicted, the race hustlers will foment racial strife in order to try and gin up the black vote. Right now the blacks are really not motivated to go out and vote for Obama so they need to create a James Byrd (hate whitey) moment. It’s all they’ve got. What is the unemployment rate among blacks under Obama? Yeah.

American Blacks will rue the day they backed and supported Barack Hussein Obama!!! He has done more damage to setting American Blacks back onto the Slave Plantation of economic slavery!!! Sad, that Blacks keep refusing to take advantage of the American dream of freedom, liberty, equality & oppotunity, and....settle for for the destructive hand of socialism and economic slavery!!! Obama is not one of them, nor is he one of all Americans. As for Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton just consider the source, hatemongers, from head to toe!!!

As an avid student of history, particularly of our Revolution , Civil War, WWII, etc., I have in my home office a good sized custom model of a “Red Tail” Mustang P51 fighter, the famed aircraft of the “Tuskegee” airmen of WWII fame. America, from the Revolution, to the Civil War, to WWII, and......all American wars owes much debt to Black Americans!!! And......remember, although these magnificent Black aviators changed history, so did thousands upon thousands of “ordinary” Black men serve these United States of America patriotically & faithfully in WWII, and yet, they came home to mass prejudice and mjch racial hate after the war!!!

Yet, even with opportunity place at their door by MLK & millions of goodwill folks, they remain aloof & apart from the America of dreams and follow those of their kind that use race as ahate tool, and seek only political power while holding millions of them in economic dependence and slavery, instead of letting they become all they can be as free men and women. This “Racism” must go, and IMHO so should the likes of Barack Hussein Obama, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharton also!!! Freedom is knocking on your door, Black America. Wake up, get with the program, or be left at the train station with the despots and racists that now control you!!!

It's time for elderly racists like Jesse to stop spewing hate and retire.

Wait, that's ageist talk!

“I want to cut his nuts out,” Jackson said to his fellow guest during a broadcasting break. “Barack, he is talking down to black people.”

This was quickly swept under the rug by complicit media, an incident long forgotten, never mentioned or recalled.

They lie, YOU buy.

Brewer, who, he said, “did the ultimate insult...

Wasn't it Jesse who said on an open TV mic that he would cut Obama's nuts off? As insults go, I would prefer a finger wave over castration.

Like most liberals, Jesse "Snowfoot, The Race Baiter" Jackson wouldn't recognize the truth if it bit him on the ass. I would love to just slap the stupid offen that brother's all-bent-up face. Just backhand some sense into that lyin, cheatin, stealin, lazy, good for nothin, phony-assed charlatan.

Jesse Jackson is a Race Pimp, pure and simple. He is a zit on the ass of the American Political System, and he need a good poppin... right in the snout. Dat fo sho!

Barack Obama is not even “black”. He does not have one trace of slave blood. His mother’s ancestors owned slaves and his father’s sold Africans into slavery. He is totally disconnected from the American black experience. He knew his “father” (the man who knocked his mother and many other women up) for all of ONE MONTH. The rest of his youth he was raised by a white mother and two white grandparents. He is WHITE. Unlike Clarence Thomas, unlike Herman Cain, unlike Allen West. Yet THEIR “blackness” is always questioned. Pathetic that we accept this and no conservative politicos will simply state what I wrote above as fact and get it out there.

Jesse "the saint" jackson, put more than his finger in an assistant's face and other places.

The righteous rev, knocks'em up but now is refusing to pay "his fair share", as his ex-lover is suing him for child support.

Such a miserable piece of crap.
