In his article, THE O JESSE KNOWS
JACKSON ON OBAMA'S AMERICA Amir Taheri fills us in on what our favorite Reverend has been up to. Of course Jesse didn't want to have the American press around when he said what he did, so, he went where all good socialist go when they want to bash the U.S., France! Here are just a few choice words from Mr. Jackson:
"The most important change would occur in the Middle East, where "decades of putting Israel's interests first" would end."
"Jackson warns that he isn't an Obama confidant or adviser, "just a supporter." But he adds that Obama has been "a neighbor or, better still, a member of the family." Jackson's son has been a close friend of Obama for years, and Jackson's daughter went to school with Obama's wife Michelle. "
Humm, that's comforting!
"We helped him start his career," says Jackson. "And then we were always there to help him move ahead. He is the continuation of our struggle for justice not only for the black people but also for all those who have been wronged."
This does explain a lot.
"Jackson rejects any suggestion that Obama was influenced by Marxist ideas in his youth. "I see no evidence of that," he says. "Obama's thirst for justice and equality is rooted in his black culture."
Black Liberation Theology = Marxist Theology
"Is Jackson worried about the "Bradley effect" - that people may be telling pollsters they favor the black candidate, but won't end up voting for him?
"I don't think this is how things will turn out," he says. "We have a collapsing economy and a war that we have lost in Iraq. In Afghanistan, we face a resurgent Taliban. New threats are looming in Pakistan. Our liberties have been trampled under feet . . . Today, most Americans want change, and know that only Barack can deliver what they want. Young Americans are especially determined to make sure that Obama wins."
"...and a war that we have lost in Iraq." I guess Jesse's been in France a little too long, he must have missed the last 12 months news on Iraq about the surge, Oh wait, that's right, there was no news, according to our "Johnny on the spot" news reporters here in the states everything still sucks!
"Barack is determined to repair our relations with the world of Islam and Muslims," Jackson says. "Thanks to his background and ecumenical approach, he knows how Muslims feel while remaining committed to his own faith."
And talking with them is going to do that you say, err....How do you reason with someone that wants to kill you, and doesn't care if they die in the process?
For someone that wishes he had Obama's err...Acorns...in a specimen jar, he sure seems to like the man. Funny how he has to go to France to proclaim his friendship.
