As reported by BizPac Review:
Well, they’ve sent in the clowns. Radical black activist Jesse Jackson has hustled down to Florida, toting his fundraising arm, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition. “The Rev” came all the way down to tell us that “Florida is an apartheid state” and “the Selma of our time” — and to help his accomplice in blackmail, Al Sharpton, with Big Al’s campaign to boycott the state.
Jackson’s comments might be a new low even for someone who has made a career of low points (remember his arrest for criminal trespass, and referring to New York City as “Hymietown”?) and who has made a living as a professional race profiteer. The “Selma calls” are part of Jackson’s recipe to put money into his own pocket and to fund his divisive agenda. A fun exercise is to go back and count the number of places in the United States that Jackson over the years has compared to Selma, the Alabama city where voting rights marchers were attacked. There are at least eight places, including Yale University, that have prompted Jackson’s predictable knee-jerk moments of lucrative outrage.
… Even the mainstream media are finally letting people know that Jackson gets enormous paychecks by inciting racial strife. One can only wonder how Jackson amassed a net worth of $10 million (according to Celebrity NetWorth) from being a civil rights activist. The likely conclusion, since Jackson detests capitalism except for the money he can wring out of businesses, is that he made millions from his destructive race-baiting and running his own people into the ground.
Sharpton, of course, has parlayed his career as a world class fraud and agitator into a recurring gig as a
blithering idiot political commentator for the pink peacock network. Not bad for someone as eloquent and astute as your average boiled owl. Meanwhile, the four medicated liberals who still watch MSNBC continue to refer to the ol’ race baiter as a “civil rights” leader. Times sure have changed. That brand of “leadership” used to be called “inciting to riot.”
