The Rest of What Jesse Jackson Said on the Fox News Tape … Yes, He Used the “N” Word
Just when we thought the “cut his nuts out” comments were the worst thing to come out of Jesse Jackson’s mouth regarding Barack Obama, along comes this.
Remember the Jesse Jackson tape where he was caught making comments about Barack Obama prior to a Fox News taping? It turns out there was more that was said. TVNewser has obtained a transcript of what Jackson said on Sunday July 6, 2008 … Jesse Jackson appears to have used the “N” word.
Barack…he’s talking down to black people…telling n—s how to behave.
This coming from a supposed civil rights leader who for years has been condemning others for this same type of language. As the Gateway Pundit states, imagine what would happen if a white conservative ever made such comments. Some how this double standard is ok, if you mumble it under your breath and do not make such hateful comments openly public.
Read the following as well as there are some interesting takes on not only Jesse Jackson and the hipocisy of his use of the “N” word, but also of Fox News and Bill O’Reilly blaming internet weasels for leaking the tape.

Bill O’Reilly Blames “Some Weasel” For Leaking to TVNewser
So it’s the internets fault because Fox News did not want to report the news and the full story of what transpired on a tape? Funny, your viewers are wondering why the full tape was never originally released.
Today, on Shepard Smith’s program, O’Reilly confirmed, “It’s one word, a disparaging word.”
“N-word?” asked Smith. “Yeah, and it’s trash-talking,” said O’Reilly.
O’Reilly went on to explain why his show didn’t originally play the full tape: “I’m not in the business of hurting Jesse Jackson, because it does hurt Jesse Jackson. And I’m not in the business of creating some kind of controversy that is not relevant to the general subject: one civil rights leader disparaging another, over policy. So we held it back.”
Then he turned his attention to the person who tipped off TVNewser. “Some weasel leaked it to the internet,” he said. “That person wants to hurt Jesse Jackson.”
Sorry Bill, but are not you the same person who states that the liberal MSM treats Fox News badly and does name calling as you are now condemning the internet? Bill O’Reilly does not think that it is news that a “civil rights” leader who has extorted and condemned so many for racial hate makes the very comments himself? Why is it news when a white person used the “N” word and the media comes down on them, rightfully so, like a ton of bricks. The end result is usually someone losing their job. However, when Jesse Jackson uses the same words, its covered up. Fox News and Bill O’Reilly, you do not get to decide what is and what is not news. You only get to report … we decide!

In SOME cases, O’Reilly’s criticism might have a point to it. But in this case, absolutely none.
What’s your agenda, O’Reilly? Trying to “weasel” up to Jesse Jackson? Isn’t that what matters in your profession, finding out whose butt you can kiss? Who you can cultivate for some kind of mutually beneficial relationship?
So you can shoot your mouth off and be paid sky-high amounts for, basically, doing nothing but shooting your mouth off?
Go ahead, blame the media for Jackson’s comment … and by the way, I suppose you support Aruba for blaming Beth Twitty for causing trouble?
See all the media “pundits” go into a flap over this. I wish that Americans would come to their senses … and just turn the TV off. Period.
Meanwhile, I await the reaction of the “black community,” as the cliche goes. No doubt they will be as irate at one of their own using such language as they would be at, say, President Bush.
Yeah, no doubt. Still waiting ….
Double standards? No, that’s beyond belief.
O’Reily: “I’m not in the business of hurting Jesse Jackson, because it does hurt Jesse Jackson.”
Funny … I thought (used to think, anyway; I don’t even harbor the idea anymore) that TV news programs were supposed to report news.
Those are the old days, though.
Reporting correctly what Jesse Jackson said is not “hurting” Jesse Jackson. If FoxNews reports the “balls” comment, what’s so horrible about providing the whole comment? Ah yes, we’ve already heard – it’s okay for blacks to call their own race by names that we all find offensive. But let a white guy refer to “nappy headed hoes” in jest and we all should call for his head!
Jesse Jackson hurts Jesse Jackson – not FoxNews or sanctimonious Bill O’Reilly.
BILL O is a loser
ratings whore like greta
PUKE ICON please
Jesse Jackson called OSAMA Barack HUSSEIN Obama the “N” word?!?!? OMG…say it isn’t so
What dopey dips…
Yo, Jesse should lose his job for using the “N” word all right….wait a minute, what is his job anyway?
Jesse Jackson has been playing the race card for so long now, he’s even got a great number of black people not paying attention to him anymore. They are SO over him—so are we !
Talk about a double standard though….even Whoopie Goldberg and Elizabeth Hasslebeck had it out over the use of the term on “The View” today.
Hmnnnnnn…so this is news?? It is getting so old, but glad the media picked up on it anyway just to point out what a hypocrite he is. Big surprise there. NOT!
No surprise to me…they call each other that all the time…Obama said he accepted his apology…but being a civil rights attorney if a white person said that about him it would of been h~~l on wheels…so then let’s talk about just where does it apply….
O’Rielly did not report the most important part of racist Jacksons remarks. He was a coward and should apologize to all viewers. That Jackson used a word wrongully removed from vocabulary, was the lead subject. False Reverands have brought the use of a word to expected violence, and insult that a person is not expected to get over without having their justified revenge. Burning a word is burning a book.
This whole who can use what word thing reminds me of 5th grade girl’s groups all over again..”We have a secret word and you can’t use it, ha, ha, ha!!!” Grow up or shut up.
Riddle me this Batman: If we are one nation, one people, not interested in distinguishing between separate races, why on earth then can one race use a word that other races can’t?
Screw O’really, he is not a news source. Jesse Jackson used the word to make a strong point on how Obama looks down on black people. So on that point I agree with JJ, not using the word but what he meant. Be at peace black brothers, Obama looks down on us honkeys too! I guess because he is both black and white he is a better breed than all of us.
Seems to me that the bulk of Jesse’s job description IS distinguishing between separate races, no?
of course he can use the N-word.
anyone can if he/she chooses too.
but for a black person it is not neccesary offensive to use it.
same as a fat person can easier make fun of another fat person for example.
not to difficult to understand.
Why is Jackson and that other black guy Sharpton so damn important in our world. They’re everywhere to get publicity like Gloria Alred, the lawyer who I understand has never tried a case by herself. Some of the polsters are useless like Pat Cadell. Look back….nearly every prediction they made turned out false. Why do we listen to these damn insignificant people. Do they know more than we do?
I say listed to your heart.
Caesu…I have to say I feel you are wrong. Fat people will not try to kill you if you use the “Fat” word. It is not nice to use but not considered “fighting word”…
i am sorry for anyone that listens to Jackson and sharpton. They have made a big living and lining their pockets on the back of the black community. Please people wake up and do not give them the time of day. They lough behind your back when they count the dough!!
