Jesse Overshadowed

  • And even earlier Friday, not long after the start of the protests, the Rev. Jesse Jackson had been cut off as he spoke about the McDonald shooting.

    Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition had organized the march, which brought together a variety of groups and community leaders. They had started at Michigan and Wacker. From there, Rev. Jackson had led several hundred people north on Michigan to the Water Tower, where several people were to speak.

    Jackson, U.S. Rep. Danny Davis and more than a dozen other ministers and leaders crowded onto the steps of the historic tower. Crowds counted each bullet that struck McDonald. But as they began to pray and speak, several young men with bullhorns approached from all sides, overpowering their sound with chants of “Indict Rahm.”

    “This is about indicting Mayor Rahm Emanuel,” one called. The ministers countered, “Let us pray, let us pray.”

    “We’re not here to pray,” a voice repeated over a megaphone.

    They pulled Jackson’s microphone and stormed the stairs. Someone yanked the cord to the speakers, knocking out Jackson’s audio.

    “Indict Rahm!” the protesters shouted as a brief shoving match ensued.

    Those who interrupted Jackson, included a group shouting “black power!” and carrying red, green and black flags.
    Amid cries of “Send Rahm to jail,” Jackson and the other officials quickly dispersed as the masses hijacked Jackson’s presentation, and competed with the shoppers who flocked downtown to advantage of Black Friday sales.
Must have been a crowd of legal scholars or something. Jesse ran like the irrelevant has-been of recent years.

My comment is not about Jesse, the fool. My comment is about the revolting idiot, Pfleger. I just sent an e-mail to the Archdiocese. Will you? Perhaps when they hear from enough people (and I have no idea what that magic number is) maybe they will finally do something about that fool. www.archdioceseofchicago.org

WHOOO!
Sweet Jeebus this shit is FUNNY!

It's a thing of terrible beauty when
two (or more) clown-cars of Chicago Fuckery
somehow managed to crash into each other.

Jesse Jackson surely filled the seat of his pants upon realizing
the ugly babies (and movement) he helped hand raise have turned
on him.

And he ran...
Is it too late for a collective final
"Fuck You and Yours" to the king
of poverty & tragedy pimping?

Hey Sparkle-Farts...
The man who said:
"Cut his nuts off" in
reference to you is
now vulnerable and
sliding down the splintery
spiral bannister of irrelevancy.

>Hint! Hint!<

Oh well.
Trotsky ran too only to have Stalin's NKVD
finally catch up with him in Mexico.

Thus be it ever.
It's amusing when they gnaw the bones of their own.

I listened to some of the protesters and their reasons for why they showed up.

They want McCarthy out. Rahm out, and even Anita out. When you start listening to their reasoning - they aren't totally wrong. In fact, they smelled out "incompetence" and they want these people removed.

There might be more hope for Chicago than what you think.

They may not have their whole argument right - but they DO KNOW who messed all this up.

It's not a Black/White thing - it's an incompetence thing and Chicago has had too much incompetence in key positions (as well as the major staff positions underneath those top positions) and it has now come to a head.

This is what happens when you put the wrong people in office - and their incompetence leads to major problems.

Maybe people will vote differently next time.

Jesse is an irrelevant joke and a man proven not worthy to lead anyone. Unfortunately Jesse's status is also,irrelevant. One of our own took a young man's life with no legal justification. End of story. The cover-up of the shooting video was hideous and as a city we all have to emerge from this mess. I refuse to believe that BLM narrative. I have been in law enforcement since Monday June 16, 1986 when I classed up with 86-3A. We are the city of big shoulders and the city will survive, and emerge a better place. This comes from an M1 Beat guy who is still locking folks up and being the real police!

I had no idea there was a protest going on. We thought it was some sort of Thanksgiving parade. The streets were wide open and the shopping was great. They should limit Michigan avenue during big gift holidays (e.g. Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve). Our families were in town and they spent more $ than they have in years.

By the way, the biggest losers in all of this are the protesters and the media.

The cops have done a great job keeping things under control. Thanks.

Ah welcome to the diversity of the chaos you and your ilk have espoused, Jackson.

Love it Jacksons rights get trampled upon by an unruly mob.

I live in Chicago. EVERY weekend there are blacks killing blacks and the sippy-cup media, Jesse Jackson & Al Sharpton are nowhere to be found. And, it's been going on for decades.

Then a statistically infinitesimal occurrence of police shooting a black acting the fool takes place and they're all demonstrating.

If the black community is not outraged at their own killing each other on any given day, one of them shot by the police don't mean a thing to them either. G-d forbid they actually take responsibility as a community for the inordinate about if black on black killing.

Their demonstration, it's a hustle.

There are some 20 million police contacts/arrests in a year and maybe 5 incidents of really questionable shootings. What's the goal? No police? Chaos?

Walking down Michigan avenue yesterday, the media reported 3,000 protesters. What I saw was maybe 800-1,000. Many were aggressively blocking people from entering stores.

They have a right to demonstrate, but they don't have a right to block someone from entering a building.

It was apalling the police let that go on. But, Emanuel's spiking of the arrest of the officer for his own political benefit laid the ground work for giving the disrupters a pass on that.

It's unfortunate, Mr. McDonald was shot and killed. And, 16 shots to the man is very, very disconcerting, but I wasn't there. Second guessing is easy.

Viewing the short tape, it does appear McDonald was acting the fool walking around with a knife and most importantly NOT following the instructions of the police officers.

That is why HE is the person ultimately responsible for his own demise, even though it does appear the officer lost it and shot him when the officer should have kept his distance and taken other steps to keep McDonald from being a threat to others.

The situation gets worse by the hour, and as an amateur historian I could not help but recall the similarity of what I saw in the video from Michigan Avenue, with old films. The films I specifically refer to were the newsreels of Kristallnact, November, 1938. At that time, young Nazi Storm Troopers, blocked the entrances to Jewish owned businesses, chanting anti-Jewish slogans. Fascism never sat really well with Capitalism, because Fascism demands total loyalty. Sort of like the Democrat Party does today, especially since it has gone so far to the left that they run candidates who tout Socialism. Remember, Hitler was a Socialist, but also a Totalitarian Dictator. In case we have forgotten the formal name for the Nazi Party was: National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP). And let's not forget, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, another Totalitarian form of "Socialist" Government. Chicago has been a dictatorship for decades, but this leaning towards Socialism is a very dangerous direction, especially when you add a Racial component. History has a ve habit of showing both the past, and sometimes the future. Sgt.Baby "G"

Anyone remembers Wicker Park area in the 80's? Gangs, drugs, burned out buildings and cars. I hate to point the obvious, the place changed once white people started to move in. Gentrification is a term used to describe a process of cleaning up a neighborhood and getting slapped with high property taxes for the effort. It didn't happen by itself, CPD greatly contributed to cleaning up the crime in the area...it was such a success that old 13th district police station closed :)

"Time for an FBI Investigation of:"

Um, the FBI and US Attorneys office have been investigating this case since at least the beginning of this year. So if you are claiming some sort of cover up then the Feds are in on in to, along with the state. And the parents. And the attorneys. That's quite a conspiracy. You are going to need more tin foil.

An explanation was given on the video and potential tainting of the jury pool. If you don't think that is reasonable then you are basically saying the video is no big deal. And if that is the case why are some people upset by it? Or is just another reason to protest and demand more free stuff? And the media is using it to just push ratings since most of them are on the verge of bankruptcy (thanks to their decades of pushing false stories on the public).
