Rep. Cummings then requested time to ask a question, but he
then developed into a series of talking points. Issa cut the mike, but Cummings
refused to be quiet, shouting “I am tired of this”, then launched into a
tirade, with camera shutters a fluttering to capture Cummings’s media come-on.
"Reverend" Jesse Jackson Called Darrell Issa's Conduct "Racist"
Yet Jackson compared to the Tea Party
to the slave-holding Confederacy
The Congressional Black Caucus then issued a letter to Speaker John Boehner, calling Chairman Issa “a disgrace” and demanded that the California Congressman lose his chairmanship. Even after Issa apologized, “Reverend” Al Sharpton continued to condemn Issa, saying that his apology was not enough, and Florida Democrat Debbie Wasserman-Shultz sensationalized Issa’s cutting off the mike, comparing it to the tyranny on display in Venezuela and the Ukraine.
Then the “Reverend” Jesse Jackson commented on the little committee tiff with a tweet:
Rev. Jackson wants to indict Issa for invidious discrimination. But what about Jackson? He has a history of uttering crude, wrong, and racist remarks. Following the Trayvon Martin murder case, in which the jury granted George Zimmerman a “Not Guilty” verdict, Jackson commented about the demonstrations and skirmishes of violence which followed:
Yet barely four years ago, Jackson had to apologize after a hot mike caught him saying that he would like to "cut off his [Obama] nuts" . . . then: "Barack...he's talking down to black people...telling niggers how to behave."
Wow! Jackson also neglected to mention that the white vote propelled the junior senator from Illinois into victory.
These statements uttered by Robertson are more offensive than the bus driver in Montgomery, Alabama, more than 59 years ago. At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat to a white person, was following state law. 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.’
When Robertson returned to the program, Jackson muttered, “I do not feel good about it.”
But the comment which followed was particularly invidious:
Goldwater and Reagan – had they been successful,” Jackson said, “it would have been illegal for blacks and whites to play together on a Saturday afternoon. You couldn’t have had the Carolina Panthers behind the cotton curtain playing the Atlanta Falcons . . . it would have been illegal for them to even sit together.
|And the Reverend is calling Issa and Phil Roberston racist?|
(Hymie is an anti-Semitic slur)
