To think people believed Jesse Jackson Jr. when he said Hillary didn’t cry over Katrina! Here is that exalted public servant’s reaction to Obama’s erroneous claim that he had won the nomination in June:
Jesse Jackson Jr. (D-Ill.), son of the one-time presidential contender, said Obama’s victory overwhelmed him.
“I cried all night. I’m going to be crying for the next four years,” he said. “What Barack Obama has accomplished is the single most extraordinary event that has occurred in the 232 years of the nation’s political history. … The event itself is so extraordinary that another chapter could be added to the Bible to chronicle its significance.” (emphasis added)
Yes, this mendacious schmuck thinks that Obama’s NOT WINNING THE NOMINATION:
- makes him a religious figure to be added to the Bible, and
- overshadows every other event in the nation’s political history.
Freeing the slaves? Not as important. Getting suffrage for AA’s? Not as important. The Civil Rights Act? Not as important. And heaven forfend that we mention anything whatsoever to do with womens’ rights in that list! No, the Messiah’s non-accomplishment trumps all. How rational and utterly non-racist!
Here’s some more for you: Obama’s enablers have been attempting to intimidate and shame Hillary’s black delegates into voting for Obama for months, despite their commitments to vote otherwise. Lest you say this is old news, just today, the news broke that Emil Jones, Obama’s Illinois State Senate mentor, told Clinton delegate Delmarie Cobb: Vote Obama or You’re an Uncle Tom.
Is it any wonder that Democrats are leaving the Obama for America Party in droves? This is the kind of racial politics that is absolutely repugnant to any person of any character, principle or decency. And from a campaign that bills itself as post-racial, it’s even more deplorable.
Once again, Barack Obama is not nearly good enough to take up the historical mantle of the African- American community, so he is trying to force people to vote for him with these cheap and despicable tactics. And it makes me very, very sad and angry that we could have done so much better this year, but our Party, so far, has refused to let it happen.
If “Clobama” doesn’t happen (Clinton/Obama), it looks like Cynthia McKinney is getting my vote this year. She’s too far left for me (and just a wee bit nuts), but at least I’m going to err on the correct side of the spectrum. And yes, she’s black and female.
Up yours, ObamaNation. And I mean that in the most “read aloud” sense.
