Jesse Jackson Disses Black Lawmakers

That race-baiting poverty pimp, Jesse Jackson, has struck again by leveling a statement directed at members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC).

According to the Hill newspaper, Jackson said that any black lawmaker who doesn't vote for the confiscation of freedom in the form of Obamacare can't call themselves black.

"We even have blacks voting against the health care bill," Jackson reportedly said at a Congressional Black Caucus reception Wednesday night honoring the 25th anniversary of the civil rights leader's run for president.

"You can't vote against health care and call yourself a black man," the Hill reported him saying.

The remark was a clear shot at Rep. Artur Davis, D-Ala., the only member of the CBC to vote against the House version of the health care legislation.

Davis refused to engage the debate. My congratulations go out to Mr. Davis for not stooping to Jackson's level. Davis seems to realize that the issue is this egregious piece of legislation, not race. Jackson will never make the distinction.

Those of us who have followed the seemingly endless parade of liberal ideas written into a piece of legislation knew that it was only a matter of time before Jesse Jackson and his ilk injected race into the debate on health care reform. It's who he is and what he does.

Imagine the howls from the left had someone in the KKK had made this statement: "You can't vote for health care and call yourself a white man." The statement would be the lead story on every single network in the MSM and would be the headline in every single newspaper that clings to liberal ideology. But since Jesse Jackson has made such a racist statement, it's okay in the eyes of the left.

Jesse Jackson has got jumbo-sized coconut ones for even CONSIDERING making such a statement. It is a slap in the face to every single American who is against this on the basis of the fact that another freedom will be forever lost.

A statement from B & G: You cannot vote for health care and call yourself an American who cares about freedom.

"You can't vote against health care and call yourself a black man,"

In a way, the dude has a point. If you vote against Government Care, you must call yourself a free man, or an American, not some member of a group tied slavishly to group-think.

Nothing Jackson says surprises me. If the Black Man were to think for himself, Jackson would be out of a job ... what ever that is.

In other words you can't be black unless you follow the old wrinkly white men and botox bitches of the Democratic party. We always knew this was the case.

IMHO, you can't vote for health care and call yourself an American.

Honest to goodness, I almost used that same phrase, Soloman!
