NEWSFLASH: Jesse Jackson is a Hypocrite
In an amazingly unbelievable revelation to us all, we have been presented today with evidence that Jesse Jackson may, indeed, be a hypocrite. As hard as that may be to believe, once the shock wears off, read more at FoxNews.com.
Last week, as Bill O'Reilly was about to broadcast Jesse Jackson's 'hot mic' incident for the first time on 'The O'Reilly Factor', the program's highly rated host stated that there was actually some additional captured audio that, while damaging to Jackson, would not be aired due to it not adding anything to the present story. I personally witnessed some snickering and doubtful comments about that on some of the more liberally-biased programs and networks in the days following O'Reilly's statement.
Well, it appears that O'Reilly was being truthful all along.
"I'm not in the business of hurting Jesse Jackson - because it does hurt Jesse Jackson - and I'm not in the business of creating some kind of controversy that's not relevant to the general subject: one civil rights leader disparaging another over policy. So we held it back. Some weasel leaked it to the Internet," O'Reilly said.
Once a few internet blogs got hold of the full transcript of Jackson's off-air comments and published them, O'Reilly decided to go ahead and make comment on the additional content of Jackson's rant.
Anyway... Jackson referring to black people as the 'N-Word' in the process of denigrating Barack Obama seems just so rich, does it not?
Jackson has been vocally critical of others' use of the N-word, saying it is hurtful to the black community, whether it is used by blacks or whites.
For instance, after a November 2006 rant by "Seinfeld" star Michael Richards during a stand-up routine laden with the N-word, Jackson joined other black leaders to challenge the entertainment industry to stop using the slur. He also called for a boycott of the "Seinfeld" DVD series that was coming out because of Richards' use of the slur.
"We want to give our ancestors a present," Jackson said at a news conference at the time. "Dignity over degradation."
Jackson's comment came when he was discussing Barack Obama, saying the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee is "talking down to black people," and "telling niggers how to behave."
FOX News aired a portion of the tape last week where Jackson was criticizing Obama because they were deemed newsworthy. O'Reilly said the N-word was not deemed so, because it "did not advance the story in one way, shape or form."
So, let this be a lesson to all. Nothing is impossible in this world. If Jesse Jackson can be a hypocrite, anything can and will happen!
