Jesse Jackson Spews Bigotry
Posted by Steve Markowitz on December 6, 2011
Yet another Leftist has come out their bigotry closet. This past weekend Jesse Jackson spoke of Christmas at the Rainbow PUSH Saturday Morning Forum broadcasted on The Word Network. During his speech, Jackson said of “non-Christian” merchants:
“This (Christmas) is a holy day for the poor, not a holiday for the merchants. I once heard some people that I know say that when Christmas Eve is over, they have midnight services in the back of their shops. These were non-Christian people I was, they say we, say every December 24th around midnight we have, we close our shops and we’re not Christian but we start singing ”What a Friend We Have in Jesus.” We use Jesus to lure you into Santa Claus’s birthday party and unless you have the holiday spirit, which is his songs, his wine, and his stuff you’re not welcome at the party of the man whose party it is. This is, Christmas should be a poor people’s holy day.”
Jackson’s rant is eerily reminiscent of that of the Klu Klux Klan who so often used “non-white” and “non-Christian” in their hate-filled speeches. Shame on Jesse Jackson; shame on those that allow him in the tent.
Jesse Jackson is a lifelong a Democratic and was a candidate for president in 1984 in 1988. He was also Bill Clinton’s spiritual advisor. As a Progressive Leftists, Jackson is given a pass on this bigotry. This is the same pass Barack Obama recieved for attending a racist church for 20 years. Bigotry is a growing and dangerous part of the Leftist movement in the United States.
