More Race-Bait Hatred from Jesse Jackson … President Reagan was a Racist … Tea Party Seeks To “Maintain Walls” of Slavery And Segregation, America “The Land of The Free, Home of The Genocide”
Talk about irony, Jesse Jackson was introduced at McAlister Auditorium on Furman’s Greenville, SC as an “international peacemaker …
Jesse Jackson so Furman students … “The U.S. south is “the land of the free, the home of genocide.”
The Reverend Jesse Jackson spoke at Furman University and decided to further his race-baiting, divisive agenda by making insane comments regarding former President Ronald Reagan and the Tea Party. But that is all this one time Civil Rights leader has become, creating controversy and making outlandish comments in order to keep people divided, maintain animosity and further his cash-cow divisive agenda. Jackson has no answers to anything, but instead just wants to fan the flames. Jackson was invited to speak at “Keeping Hope Alive: Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement. Lauren Cooley, a Furman student who organized that protest and was disappointed that Furman would bring such a divisive individual to speak said, “He’s been stirring up division for years through outlandish anti-Semitic, anti-white, and anti-conservative statements.” Yup, that pretty much sums Jackson up in a nutshell. We are obviously allowed our Fist Amendment rights of free speech, but why does anyone listen to this guy anymore?
Keep Hate Alive …
Deceased Republican President Ronald Reagan sought to to permanently ban African Americans from playing college and professional football in the South with white people, civil rights icon Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. alleged in a speech at Furman University on Wednesday evening.
In the same speech he also alleged that the modern Tea Party was born from efforts to sustain segregation.
“Goldwater and Reagan – had they been successful, it would have been illegal for blacks and whites to play together on a Saturday afternoon,” he said.
“You couldn’t have had the Carolina Panthers behind the cotton curtain playing the Atlanta Falcons…[inaudible] it would have been illegal.”
In the tirade, recorded by a Furman University student, Jackson went on to claim that if Reagan and former GOP presidential candidate Barry Goldwater had their way, there would have been no Olympics in Atlanta, and basketball legend Michael Jordan would have been ineligible to play basketball at the University of North Carolina (UNC).
“Michael Jordan couldn’t have gone to UNC… [inaudible] it would have been ineligible for him to play at UNC,” he continued. “You couldn’t have had the Olympics in Atlanta Georgia. You couldn’t have had the Dallas Cowboys in Houston, Texas, you couldn’t have had the Super Bowl in New Orleans or in Atlanta or in Jacksonville or Miami.”
Jackson may have been referencing Reagan and Goldwater’s vocal support for state and individual rights, which a small number of far left critics interpreted as thinly veiled appeals for segregation.
He repeatedly calling the United States south “the land of the free, the home of genocide,” and suggested that the modern day Tea Party was born from efforts to maintain “the walls” of slavery and segregation.
“The Union, those in the Confederacy sought to maintain the walls [of slavery and segregation of races] and secede from the country, the shots fired at Fort Sumter, the beginning of the Tea Party, the ‘Fort Sumter’ Tea Party, who sought to secede from the union, set their own government, their own currency, sought to ally with France and Britain, to form their own country,” he said.
