Jessee Jackson accuses Phil Robertson of white privilege-2


Jesse Jackson never misses a chance top get his big mug on TV or in the media somehow whenever he can take advantage of a situation. Now the Reverend Jackson has inserted his racist and hateful opinions in on the Phil Robertson Duck Dynasty controversy and Phil's comments about homosexuality. Phil's comments have absolutely nothing to do with race, but it seems as if Jackson has taken up the mantle of gay rights just to have more opportunity to spread his hate and rhetoric.

The Rev Jackson never seems to want to smooth over a situation and calm tension, but he instead seeks to inflame it as he has with Phil Robertson's comments. And of course he has to somehow weave race into everything. Jackson said that Phil's comments about homosexuality are, "within a context of what he seemed to believe was ‘white privilege.’”

White privilege? What the hell does stating your opinion of what the Bible says about homosexuality have to do with "white privilege?"

Apparently Rev Jackson thinks he is allowed to be as utterly absurd as he pleases just to get more air time in the media.

Political activist and former presidential candidate Rev. Jesse Jackson ripped suspended Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson in a statement on Wednesday, saying his actions were worse than that of the bus driver who denied service to Rosa Parks, the Chicago Tribune reported.

“At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat to a white person, was following state law,” Jackson said in his statement. “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.’”

Jackson’s remarks effectively serve as a rebuke to Illinois Republican congressional candidate Ian Bayne’s Dec. 20 email to supporters calling Robertson “the Rosa Parks of our generation” for what Bayne portrayed as an attempt to withstand persecution of Christians.
