Jesse Jackson Wants to Cut Obama's Nuts Off

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't see how any honest person could continue to respect or follow that man after seeing that clip. I'm always suspicious of people who seem to enjoy wielding political power, but it's rare that you get to see them as they truly are.

And the lord sayeth unto me, "Thou shalt cut off the nuts of thine enemies." (I don't remember that bible verse.)

Jesse Jackson hates to see that black racism is dying. His place in the world is becoming smaller.

Racism is dying?? Obama (and his wife) are just as guilty of racism as Jackson and all his cronies. That's what makes all of this so darn funny. When racists clash...it's a soap opera. :D

Obama has nuts? :D Jesse's just afraid Obama's stealing his game, and is jealous--it's a natural trait of people who only aspire to power over others. Maybe he's starting to realize that his leash on black opinion is really just a rope with a noose on both ends. Was that politically incorrect to say. Damn.

Does anyone see something funny (not ha-ha) about this video?

Like how clearly and slowly he's speaking?

Like how he doesn't lean in to whisper this in the other fellow's ear?

Like how Jackson, who's no stranger to microphones, acts as if he doesn't realize the mic can capture his loudly, clearly whispered words?

Like how it happened on Fox News, the only major news channel that wouldn't reflexively expunge any potentially damaging comments by a Liberal icon?

Does anyone notice what the comment seems to say about Obama? That he opposes Jackson's agenda, that he's a threat to traditional black leadership, that he holds blacks accountable (by "talking down" to them)?

Obama has tapped into white racism by calling black men "boys." He's tapped in to conservative principles by telling them they need to act like "men."

He has ensnared the left with his unimpeachable socialist credentials, and now moves freely into enemy fields, poaching swaths of voters from the center and right, with "adjustments" to his policies, and with no fear of losing his base. Say what you want about his ideology, the guy's a real smooth operator, and a political savant (even Rove says as much in this morning's WSJ). He is slowly revealing his pure, ruthless ambition.

I believe this was a set up, and if I'm right, Jesse will be well rewarded for his self-inflicted wound.

It's more a manifestation of people not being governed by logic and the main stream media sycophantically messaging everything he says to make it come out right. This is what leftist politicians get from the MSM. It's a huge advantage.

There are so many contradictions and bad ideas that come out of his mouth that you can't be on the level of ideas and support him.

No I'm not fucking kidding you...

Do you think Jackson is some sort of amateur when it comes to manipulating the media? You think, yowza, he done plum forget what a microphone do? You think he can't hatch a simple ruse to put Obama in a better light with the anti-Jesse crowd (i.e., most of white America).

Think about the nuance in the message:

"Barack's been talking down to black people and I wanna cut his nuts off."

Shows that Jackson cares about black people's dignity.

Portrays Obama as a legitimate black man using the starkest racial terms.

Tells whites that Obama is not a typical black leader.

Most importantly, draws attention to what Obama said that drew Jackson's ire: That black men are acting like boys. Great for Obama's standing with conservatives.

The writing on the wall is pretty big, and Jesse stands to get a juicy role in an Obama White House.

Everything that happens in this election should be viewed with a jaundiced eye.

(on edit: removed a vicious rumor about Jackson and chicken blood. No reliable source.)

Obama's wife, his "bitter half," is a pure horror. Her racism and anti-Americanism are legendary. But Obama himself, all things considered, is a courtly gentleman and basically a good guy.

As for the alleged humor you cite, I don't see it. Everywhere I look, I observe white people being just about as appeasing, cowardly, dishonest, and slimy as humanly possible. Whites virtually never criticize black racism. Any above-it-all "laughter" here is very disingenuous.

You have a very distorted view of Obama. He was a member of a racist, anti-American church for some 20 years. His best friends are big time America haters. I mean, Bill Ayres is as big an America hater as you'll find, and he should probably still be in prison for what he has done. Father Flueger (sp?) is an America hater and thuggish. We know the Rev Wright, who was his spiritual mentor. So, he lies through his teeth, befriends evil people, invokes racism, promotes socialism and throws others on to the scrap heap when it is politically convenient, which appears to be quite a bit of the time. That doesn't look like what I'd call a "good guy". I'd not want to be anywhere near someone like that.

I'm not going to let anyone get away with waxing poetic about this guy. He's too dangerous and too backward.

On the surface on any given meeting he often comes across as nice, but that is a very superficial way to judge someone. Bill Clinton is the same way.

One correction to my post above:

The boldened word above should be "massaging".

Obama describes himself thusly:

“I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.”

Try to imagine the psyche, the philosophy, the morality required to write something like that about yourself.

A blank screen we can project on. Change we can believe in.

Chains we can live in.

And he doesn't even mean he's actually blank. He'd happily keep Objectivists off his screen. Reason and morality stand no chance of being incorporated into his programming. He just says stuff like this so that he sounds "inclusive" and like someone with whom people can "find common ground", because after all, that's what America today is all about. And he wants to feel this way about himself. So he will dance for the Left and dance for the Right, and measure and calculate the passions of the electorate, and sweep contradictions and scandals under the rug with a shrug and a grin and an empty slogan and a rationalization packaged in modern skepticism, pragmatism, and emotionalism. And he'll get away with it, too, because Americans don't care to think.

It's interesting the way this is getting played in the media. If Jackson had been a white man, this would have been portrayed as the most crude kind of racist comment. Remember when a white female Golf Channel reporter made a tongue in cheek comment about other players wanting to "lynch" Tiger Woods? http://www.transworldnews.com/NewsStory.as...32832&cat=6

The talking heads came out in droves on the cable chanels, hoping to see her career ruined. They don't seem to have the same reaction to Jackson's comment.

Well, I admit he charms the hell out of me! I say him on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, and his seeming high character and winsomeness never once flagged.

Although Obama is positively surrounded by dirtbags, as you mentioned Thales, he still seems to have a kind of amazing nobility and charming appeal -- especially for a politician.

Obama may be a dreadful socialist, but far better to look at his face for four years than "Wicked Witch" Hillary or "Grampa" McCain! B) I also think he works harder, and has more intelligence and rationality to work with, than his Republican rival.

I am not certain that intelligence in support of evil policy is something to be valued.

I agree he is an excellent speaker, but so was Hitler. I'll be very disappointed if he is elected, not because I view Mccain as appreciably better, but because I would see it as an indication that American culture is so bankrupt that a pure demagogue with horrible ideology, can get us walking, willingly, to our own slaughter.

I dunno. Maybe I just love chaos. But I am kinda of hoping Obama will get elected just so I can watch everything go to hell. Maybe then a change in thinking will actually start. Sure there will be tremendous damage wrought, but so was there when Galt started the strike. I can identify with Galt in that mentality of - here's what you said you wanted, now live with it.

I don't know what white people you know or have been talking to, but I would say the vast majority of whites I know recognize the racism that many blacks in this country practice. Why do you think this video is so sensational? You certainly won't see it out in the open or around the water cooler, unless it's by Rush Limbaugh or someone to that effect, because whites are so paranoid about being labeled a racist.

Whether the scene was staged or not (and it wouldn't surprise me if it was), I still find it humorous. If it was staged, it's funny because it's so pitiful and if it wasn't, it's funny because it's so stupid. (And I'm being genuine about that.)

Would you be more specific as to the nature of the racism against blacks which you refer to?

I ask because the only institutionalized racism that I am aware of in this country, currently, is directed against white males in particular. Affirmative action, quotas, college and grad school admissions, scholarships(Know of any for "Caucasian males?"), preferential treatment for government jobs, etc.

Also, the fact that Barak Obama is a serious contender for the throne would indicate that a significant number of Americans are not Judging him based on his race, if you were thinking more along the lines of some nebulous, societal oppression.

I don't watch a lot of news though I have been checking foxnews.com and newsmax.com regularly, and I have to wonder why no one is calling Jesse Jackson out on making a physical, violent threat to a presidential candidate. If someone else had said that, do you think they'd get off scott free with only an apology, or would the Secret Service be doing an anal scan on their entire history? Seems it is OK for a black man to threaten another black man, but if a white man had said that, especially if he wasn't well-known, there would be a lot of talk of him being a racist and wanting to castrate a black man's progeny, and would probably be locked away fora very long time. And then Jesse Jackson and his ilk wonder why there is so much black on black violence, when Jesse Jackson himself threatened to do physical harm to a man merely for disagreeing with him about the role of black churches. Of course, black churches are Jesse Jackson's power base, and if a well-know and popular black man disses them as Obama has, why the whole thing might come tumbling down; so he needs to be told that his nuts will be cut off if he continues, just to keep him in his place.

The whole thing is disgusting and immoral, and, like I said, I bet it would be considered illegal for almost anyone else to say something like that.

KMac was just responding to someone else’s assertion regarding what whites know about racism coming from blacks. I think we're all aware racism cuts both ways, and really, it's not even proper to say "cuts both ways", because we are all of the human race. Racism is simply stupid. I'm sick of the subject, but it seems to be an ever present topic of discussion. Almost everywhere I look and everything I read is suddenly about race. They call Muslims a race, when it's a religion. They even have some thing in England where they claim babies are showing racist tendencies if they say "yuk" to foreign foods. I think it's the postmodernist agenda at work. Everything is about environmentalism and racism.

Universities have been working for decades to foist this stuff on society. They have worked extremely hard and with all of the brain power they could muster to spread their goofy ideas and continue to do so to this day at all levels of education. So, we're seeing the fruits of their labors.

The good news is that Objectivism is impervious to it all.

I'm way ahead of you on that one. Hope it hasn't been copy righted.

Clever. :lol:
