Hateful Rhetoric

CJ Ciaramella, The Washington Free Beacon, June 4, 2012

Speaking at two rallies Sunday and Monday, Rev. Jesse Jackson compared Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker to segregationist Alabama governor George Wallace and said Walker is perpetuating segregation in Milwaukee.

Jackson is a supporter of Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett, who is challenging Walker in Tuesday’s special recall election. {snip}

“Why is Milwaukee so segregated and so-locked out? Because of a lack of access to transportation,” Jackson told the press alongside a group of local church leaders. “If you are in fact on welfare, you can’t own a car. Without public transportation, you can’t get to the job, and the job can’t get to you.”

That is why, Jackson said, Milwaukee has become the “poorest and most segregated city in the state.”

“The governor of this state refused to accept $800 million from President Obama,” Jackson said, drawing boos from the small audience outside a downtown municipal building. “He turned down the jobs creator. That was money for Americans who can make the steel, lay the rails, build the trains, unite Milwaukee and Madison and Chicago, and put Wisconsin and Illinois and America back to work.”

Speaking Sunday night at another rally, Jackson compared Walker to segregationist Alabama governor George Wallace for his support of voter ID laws.

“So now you have a governor—Wallace did it in Alabama and now Walker in Wisconsin—trying to take back access to vote,” Jackson said.

    That was money for Americans who can make the steel, lay the rails, build the trains, unite Milwaukee and Madison and Chicago, and put Wisconsin and Illinois and America back to work.

    So what he is saying is “give the money to whites”, because blacks can not do any of those things.

    • If black people could do those things white charities wouldnt have to fly people to africa to did wells, they could just send a book and a shovel

      • “They could just send a book and a shovel”. That was the funniest thing I have read all day. I am still chuckling as I hit post.

    • vladdy1

      “That was money TAKEN FROM Americans who can make the steel”…etc. D’Won thinks he can just toss our money around, playing the gracious giver. Give your own damn money, BO.

  • US blacks on welfare live better than the top 1% of natives of black nations. Voter ID is a problem for them as felons and those with warrants for their arrest dont carry ID.

  • “Why is Milwaukee so segregated and so-locked out? Because of a lack of
    access to transportation,” Jackson told the press alongside a group of
    local church leaders. “If you are in fact on welfare, you can’t own a
    car. Without public transportation, you can’t get to the job, and the
    job can’t get to you.”

    Because Milwaukee is full of shiftless unemployable bigoted blacks.

    The “railway” between Milwaukee and Madison was one of these high speed boondoggles that even Californians are starting to doubt.  Accepting Federal money would have put the state on the hook.  The public employee reform that was supposed to be so terrible (even though it resulted in public employees with salaries and benefits packages significantly better than a comparable private sector employee, and the requisite unions in tact), would have been more “drastic,” including actual layoffs.

    • Easyrhino1

      Question:  how does “Accepting Federal money would have put the state on the hook”?

      Thank you.

      ER

      •  Because the Federal money required state matching funds.  I don’t think it was an even dollar-for-dollar requirement.  But still, it was an expensive boondoggle, when a lot of roads and bridges need repairing.  Of course, the libs love trains because they go where they go, meanwhile, in your car, you can go pretty much where you want to go.

        • The__Bobster

          Matching funds, and then the state has to fund the operating expenses in perpetuity. Not a good deal.

          • Strider73

            Correct. That’s why Gov. Scott nixed BHO’s proposed high-speed rail line between Orlando and Tampa. Had the $1.2 billion in federal loot run out before completion (guaranteed, with all the union featherbedding, minority set-asides, etc.), state taxpayers would have had to pay for the rest. Then the state would have had to pay for all of the operation & maintenance. Finally, after the whole thing had been shut down due to lack of ridership, the state would have had to repay the original $1.2 billion.

            These “stimulus” projects were nothing more than dressed-up versions of Kananga’s “free heroin” ploy. Fortunately Scott, Walker and some other governors saw through it.

    He’s like Wallace?  Reallty?   You mean the Wallace who said:   “In the name of the greatest people that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny, and I say segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.”

    There isn’t a politican living today who could hold a candle to Wallace . . . and Wallace wasn’t really a racialist.  He just became one because the people of Alabama wanted a leader to take a strong stand FOR segregation and AGAINST the feds in Washington, DC.   Wallace was actually fairly liberal most of his early political career.

    If we whites had just ONE politician like George Wallace, I’d go to work for him tomorrow.

    • I’d vote for him for President…

      Or, at least the president of a secessionist country… which is where we’re heading anyways..

      • The__Bobster

        You would vote for the old Wallace, not the new one.

  • So “Voter ID” laws are akin to Jim Crow era segregation?  How do these people drive cars, purchase cold medicine, buy alcohol, purchase items on credit cards (haha just kidding), cash a check, GAMBLE AT A CASINO!, RECEIVE WELFARE, apply for jobs (haha just kidding again), apply for Section 8, buy cigarettes and pick up medication at the pharmacy WITHOUT A RACIST ID CARD??  

    Also No One tell Jesse that Voter ID laws actually lead to increased minority turnout in 2008 and 2010!

      Places in the city RARELY I.D people. I was 14 when I bought my first pack of cigarettes in Philly. I bought a pack from a Chinese store near my house too. They used to deliver cigarettes . Yes, it’s very illegal haha. They didn’t care. I was 15 so they charged me 7 dollars a pack. You don’t usually need I.D for prescriptions. 

      •  I guess I’m just used to living in a civilized world that follows the rule of law here in my So CAL Whitopia.

    Hateful Rhetoric: Undoing Whiteness by Destroying all Advantages of White Civilization for those Who Built It

    Hey, Whitey, your White privilege is something that we must “fight” against. What do you think your furture will look like now that you are in a rapid state of decline and minoritization?  Do you think we will ever stop “fighting” against your Whiteness?

    Instructors Teach about Undoing ‘White Privilege’ System

    The term ‘white privilege’ is a controversial one, but two teachers taught the community about what it is, and how to fight it, during a discussion at Lake Superior College Monday evening.

    The meeting was held as part of the Un-Fair Campaign, and several dozen people attended.

    Kevin Skwira-Brown, an adjunct instructor at the College of St. Scholastica, said white privilege is a system in which people with white skin have advantages, like in education, banking and employment.

    “It continues today, in Duluth and everywhere else,” Skwira-Brown told Eyewitness News. “It doesn’t make us a bad community. It makes us a typical United States community. It doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do something about it.”

    Skwira-Brown said once the community knows what white privilege is, they can begin the work to undo it.

    The Governor should refuse matching TANF funds as well.  Dump welfare for the able-bodied.  Dump welfare through the Refugee Resettlement Program.  That will get some of the diversity to move out.

  • sophiepeaches

    George Wallace was right.

  • Well, “George Wallace” won tonight.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Wow. He’s dumber than I thought!! — trashing a fellow democrat like Wallace??

    Jackson is a supporter of Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett 

    Under Barrett’s leadership, African American joblessness rose by 150 percent in Milwaukee. 

    Speaking at two rallies Sunday and Monday, Rev. Jesse Jackson

    Jackson appeared at both events in a Mercedes Benz S550 and was escorted by a Cadillac Escalade ESV. The starting price of the S550 is about $100,000; the Escalade retails for almost $70,000.

    Jackson danced in MLK’s blood after he was shot, saw potential dollar signs and hasn’t looked back.

  • ageofknowledge

    Lol… delusional. Scott has flaws sure but people are sick of rising taxes in a down economy and public unions are the primary reason for it. Scott is showing he has the cure and the public unions don’t like it. Apparently, neither does Jessie Jackson.

    •  One political master stroke he did was to exempt police and fire unions from the reforms.  This divided the largely white first responders from the largely non-white paper pusher social workers.

  • JackKrak

    Dear Mr. Jackson,

    Sorry – REVEREND Jackson,

    The reason Milwaukee has become the “poorest and most segregated city in the state” is because it’s full of black people.

    Hope that clears it up for you.

    Thanks.

  • Sheila Dinehart

    people are segregated because they want to be

  • Whenever Jackson or Sharpton pull crap like this
    compare THEM to Huey Newton.

    Get up off your asses.

  • megabob

    Jackson, Sharpton, Holder and Obama are obvious racists.

  • My theory is the US economy collapses. Blacks and to a lesser extent Hispanics riot like crazy because they will no longer be getting their welfare checks. So you’ll have LA 1992 style riots in every American city. The military will forcefully put down the riots, but some cities with a very high black population will most likely be abandoned. All whites will finally understand the true nature of the minorities and demand segregation.

    That’s how I see it going down

    at the *risk* of exposing your age?

  • Way over your head.

    I guess I shouldn’t complain.  Sarcasm is an artform which few grasp.

    Stripes919:

    We’re talking about Wisconsin and George Wallace.  The (real) George Wallace did very well in the white parts of Milwaukee during his political  heyday.  I heard that a bunch of his Milwaukee supporters translated “Dixie” into the Polish language and assembled a choir of themselves to sing it for him.

    Unfortunately, Milwaukee also bred Arthur Bremer.

  • Church_of_Jed

    We don’t look out for our own here. Most of our Whites are liberal, so if we saw a black on White gang attack, chances are that the Whitey deserved it for voting for Obama. We wouldn’t interfere and would just let voodoo and Darwin work their magic…

  • radical7

    George  Wallace was about to be kicked out of the University of Michigan law school when he was a student because of his liberal views. When he first arrived in Alabama he was a very liberal in his viewpoints up until 1958. This was whne he came to the realization that in order to advance in the south that he had to adopt a segregationist mesage in an effort to appeal to racist.
    It obviously worked. In fact, behind the scenses he was doing alot of things for the Black citizens of Alabama. In fact, when he ran for governor in as late as 1983, the majority of Blacks supported him.

    His “transformation” after the assasination on his life in 1972 was merely nothing more than Mr. Wallace being more transparent about his real liberal views.  

    •  You’re making a fool out of yourself, so it’s best for me to get out of the way.

      Hint:  George Wallace was an Alabama native, and went to law school at the University of Alabama.

      What you are slightly right about, blind squirrel stumbling upon an acorn, that Wallace was “liberal” (by post-WWII Alabama standards) until 1958.  But transvert that same George Wallace with his pre-’58 “liberalism” to today’s America, and he would still be a “right wing extremist,” and you would be calling him that.

  • bluffcreek1967

    Notice once again the incredibly foolish issues and controversial matters that Whites must address in dealing with Blacks. Only a Black man would dare to think he was being ‘disenfranchised’ because he’s required to present his picture identification before he votes!? 

  • ageofknowledge

    Funny. You must be joking. The political whores on Capital Hill would sell their own mother for another Superpac contribution.
