Agreeing with Reverend Jesse Jackson and other Oddities

Satire by John W. Lillpop

Rarely does one blessed with the even the slightest hint of discernment agree with anything that Reverend Jesse Jackson says.

Most of the reverend's diatribes are race based extortion attempts, and obviously so at that. Only the Reverend Al Sharpton is as skilled at turning discrimination against poor blacks into personal fame and fortune.

Still, once in a great while, Reverend Jackson stumbles onto a priceless profundity, although quite by accident. The fact that Jesse's pearls of wisdom are accidental finds makes them no less valuable.

For example, in a classic "Reverend Jesse Jackson Moment" from July 2008, FOX network aired a video in which Jackson leans over and whispers, "See, Barack been, um, talking down to black people on this faith based ... I want cut his n**s off ... Barack ... he's talking down to black people."

For emphasis, Jackson appeared to make a stabbing or cutting motion with his hand.


At the time, Reverend Jackson's comments were widely denounced as vulgar and uncivil. Jackson eventually apologized and "made nice" with Obama by crying tears of joy when, on the night of November 4, America committed national suicide by electing Obama as president.

Alas, nearly one year later, the Reverend Jesse Jackson's words have been confirmed time and time again.

However, rather than limiting his "talking down" to black people, Barack Obama has expanded his condescending arrogance to include all Americans, regardless of race, ethnicity, or nationality, and has even included US allies such as France and Great Britain in his dismissive ways.

Who would have thunk that Jesse Jackson could have been so "right on" about anything?
