What a Disgrace … Jesse Jackson Compares Occupy Atlanta Protest With Civil Rights Struggle



Could Jesse Jackson possible trivialize the Civil Rights movement any more than by comparing it to the Occupy “name your city” protests? How on Earth does some one like Jackson compare something as important in American history like the Civil Rights movement to bottom feeders like those of the Occupy protesters? Jackson should be ashamed of himself and apologize to the black community.

If Jesse Jackson understands the Occupy message, maybe he can translate what the woman said below?


The Rev. Jesse Jackson is lending his support to the Occupy Atlanta movement and says that their efforts are an extension of the struggle for civil rights fought by Jackson, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and others.

Jackson visited the Occupy protesters at a homeless shelter that has become their base of operations since Atlanta police forcibly removed them from a downtown park last week. Jackson urged those gathered to keep up the fight and to focus their anger on the economic and social disparities, rather than City Hall.

The Occupy protests are an extension of Martin Luther King’s work, REALLY? The Reverend Jackson said that the protests remind him of the Civil Rights movement. Hmm, did the Civil Rights protests race and sexually assault women? Did they run to the health clinics to treat STD’s and and get HIV tests?  I guess Jackson remembers the public masturbation that took place during the Civil Rights protests. Sadly, Jackson’s comments are a disgrace and a slap in the face of those who fought for and marched for Civil Rights in America.  Jackson said that he understands the Occupy protesters objective. If he really does, he is the only one who does, as the individuals at the protests do not even know what their objective is.

“It’s a definition is a quest for an even playing field,” said Jackson. “It’s a quest for economic justice. It’s a quest for shared economic security.”

Jackson called the Occupy movement an extension of the civil rights movement he helped lead with Dr. King.

“It reminds me so much of Dr. King’s last effort on Earth,” said Jackson. “His last effort was a poor peoples’ campaign.”

      too bad that these supposedly “poor” protesters treat the real poor. (the homeless) as unequal and undeserving of their help, food and shelter.
      this movement is fake and mismanaged. they have rapist, murderers, thieves, and petty criminals as their support and since their criminals are present, the democrats will support any movement that mirrors their own crime wave.

      these non taxpayers are wearing the vendatta masks and aligning themselves with the English guy that tried to bomb the parliment ? and Elizabeth Warren created this mess so she says.
      Now we find out that obama and acorn are behind this Un American push. will their bombing attempts be next ?
      if Obama was any kid of man and had any guts, he would put an end to this today.

      Our most famous “welfare pimp” is looking for a new group to get some much needed publicity and some more money.

      Could it be that there are those within Barack Obama’s inner circle who are behind the widespread anarchy.

      A National Crisis would afford the President the opportunity to justify using his Executive Power to suspend the next election under the guise of bringing the chaos under control … the chaos that he was instrumental in creating?

      I’m sorry, but since when did you become an advocate for the homeless? Not that I disagree, but you’ve sure changed your tune!

      I watched the video, don’t you know, and am disgusted that it would be used to undermine a movement that most thinking Americans believe in. The civil rights movement benefitted everyone, the rich and poor; but was directed, specifically, for the uneducated.


      I’m sorry that you could sink so low as to feed your minions such trash. I’m not surprised that your “friends” lap it up with vigor; but, you know better… or do you?
      SM: I would watch your tone. You know nothing about me or what I do or do not support. I must have missed it where toy had any clue that I donate to food kitchens for the homeless or just recently took part in a food drive where 3 tons of food were gathered for the homeless. I also never saw you at the events that I took place in where myself and friends took party at food kitchens.

      The Occupy Wall Street crowd and their ilk are for the most part trouble makers, anarchists and the scum of the Earth. This movement has no direction or cause … they are the takers and freeloaders of society. I have more respect for the homeless, not a bunch of trouble makers that would rape, assault, vandalize and cause chaos.

      The Civil Rights movement was just … the OWS is nothing but BS and no, Americans do not support them.

      Do not ever pretend to know what I do … you know nothing of or about me.

      As bad as things seem to you, you are not one of us. Its easy for you to tear us down, making mountains out of mole hills; but WE’RE the ones who are going to have to assess the damage and rebuild this nation.

      You need to wake up! These people represent an idea that socialism is the right way to run a country.

      Having lived on this planet twice or maybe three times as long as you, IMO they don’t represent anything worth keeping. If you listen to them talk, most cannot complete a real sentence even though some have attended college.

      The main part of the movement is not homeless people. It is being sponsored by a group that belongs to the old ACORN organization. They have a $500,000 fund to support this activity. It is bought and paid for by some union money as well.
