Rev. Jesse Jackson Compares ‘Duck Dynasty’s’ Phil Robertson to Rosa Parks’ Bus Driver … Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged

 

Some will do anything to keep races at each others throats and make a buck in the process …

Late to the game but never wanting to miss a chance to miss the media attention, Rev. Jesse Jackson of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition condemned Phil Robertson’s, the ‘Duck Dynasty’ patriarch, comment African Americans and gays and compared them to the comments made by Rosa Parks’ bus driver. HUH? So let’s understand this, Jackson thinks that Robertson’s comments are more offensive than telling Rosa Parks to get to the back of the bus? Good grief, could Jackson possibly marginalize Rosa Parks anymore? Jackson stated that the Rainbow PUSH Coalition  is demanding to meet with network execs, along with Cracker Barrel’s CEO, to discuss the future of all “Duck Dynasty” memorabilia or content. Yea, no shakedown here.

If Jackson was intellectually honest here, he would see who’s civil rights were actually violated. I guess the Reverend Jackson does not care about Freedom of Speak and Freedom of Religion when it does not go along with his liberal agenda.

Duck Dynasty makes how much in merchandise, I need me some of that …

Jesse Jackson Sr. has jumped into the controversy surrounding comments by Phil Robertson, star of A&E’s backwoods reality TV show, “Duck Dynasty.”

In an announcement sent out Tuesday, Jackson Sr. compared Robertson’s recent comments about African-Americans, gay people and women to comments made by the driver of Rosa Parks’ bus.

“At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat to a white person, was following state law,” he said in the release. “Robertson’s statements were uttered freely and openly without cover of the law, within a context of what he seemed to believe was ‘white privilege.’”

Jackson’s human rights group, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, has demanded meetings with A&E and with Cracker Barrel regarding the two companies’ treatment of Robertson, who stars in the show as the head of a Louisiana family that makes duck calls.

The Gateway Pundit reminds us that he who cast stones, best check out if the house they live in is made of glass as the it was the Reverend  Jackson “who once said he wanted to cut Barack Obama’s penis off and who fathered a love child out of wedlock.” Oh yea, and lest we forget that the Rev. Jesse Jackson was accused of harassment by a gay male  staffer two years ago. But all this does not matter for when one brings  this up, we are accused of judging Mr. Jackson.

UPDATE I: This is classic as reported at The Raw Story … Because it is perfectly acceptable for Jessee Jackson and hid personality and large platform to benefit from race baiting. Judge not lest ye be judged.

Jackson’s statement also called for executives at A&E Network, which airs Robertson’s show, and Cracker Barrel, which sells Duck Dynasty-related merchandise, to meet with himself and representatives from not only his organization, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, but the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the National Organization for Women.

“It is unacceptable that a personality who has been given such a large platform would benefit from racist and anti-gay comments,” the statement read.

      Is he not the ‘Rev’ Jackson? Everything Phil said about homosexuality is straight out of the Bible.

      How did A& E violate Phil R’s first amendments rights to free speech?

      Who is foolish enough to even listen to what this jerk has to say? He is just another con man.

      Jackson is all about himself and how to make money off the backs of others. Jumping into the fray is getting his name out there to hopefully produce good feelings amongst his supporters so he can keep the money flowing.
