Jesse Jackson is so pathetic. I remember back in the early days of the March for Life (1977) cheering for him at the Capitol in Washington, D.C. on a cold and windy winter day when he spoke up for the babies. Yes, Jesse Jackson was once unabashedly and eloquently pro-life.
Not long after that, like other black, liberal sellouts, he chose to be a celebrity on the liberal, white plantation rather than to defend black babies targeted by Planned Parenthood, a eugenics organization whose history is filled with and supported by white elitists: Margaret Sanger, Katharine Hepburn (her dad was a doctor affiliated with PP), Nelson Rockefeller (who supported both PP and the Cold Harbor eugenics project), Sarah Weddington (the lawyer who represented Roe v. Wade before the Supreme Court and once wrote in a letter to president-elect Bill Clinton urging him to rush the abortion pill RU-486 to market, "(Y)ou can start immediately to eliminate the barely educated, unhealthy and poor segment of our country." In other words, poor minorities.), Bill and Hillary Clinton, billionaire Bill Gates and his wife Melinda, and dozens of rich white celebrities. In fact, the list of pro-abortion, white elitists who support aborting the babies of the "poor" goes on and on and on.
Let's face it. Minorities are voter fodder for powerful whites who use them while at the same time working for policies that leave them poor, dependent, trapped in substandard schools, and their unborn babies dead. That Jesse Jackson has become a mouthpiece for this makes him the icon of an Uncle Tom. That he has the gall to compare Scott Walker to racists during the civil rights era is nauseating.
It's time to retire, Jesse. The major civil rights issue today is the murder of unborn babies of color. Until you stand up for those little ones like Scott Walker does, you need to shut your mouth and get out of the way.
