What if Jackson had said Lynch Obama?

Last week Jesse Jackson was caught on a hot microphone expressing his displeasure with Barack Obama and he stated that he would like to “cut his nuts off” while making a cutting motion. The sound bite was discovered later by a person who was transcribing the day’s tapes. It was disclosed by Fox (who caught it) but before they did they contacted Jackson about it. He declined to discuss it but made a preemptive apology which was dutifully accepted by Obama.

There are many reasons that Jackson is upset with Obama and the main one, in my opinion, is that an Obama presidency will make him the default leader of the black community and it will put to rest the idea of inequality in America. If a black man can be president then blacks can achieve anything. If Obama gets elected it will make Jackson irrelevant. That is a matter for discussion at another time.

What I want to know is why Jackson was let off so easily. Castration was often used against black men in addition to or instead of lynching them. If a golf commentator can be suspended for saying the other golfers should to take tiger Woods out back and lynch him in order to beat him (a statement Tiger was OK with but Al Sharpton was not) then Jackson certainly deserves greater punishment than his personal embarrassment. Don Imus lost his job over a statement that depicted young black women in an unfavorable light and stories of nooses being hung lead to investigations of a hate crime. Since castration is a symbol of what was done to blacks that “got out of line” why is Jackson let off so easily?

I am not suggesting that Jackson lose his job because to be honest, the man has never worked a day in his life. He extorts money from corporations by threatening boycotts and he uses the tax laws to shelter money from government scrutiny. He has no job to lose so firing him is out of the question.

Why though, has he not been taken to task for his obviously racist remark? Why is he allowed to apologize and all is forgiven when an Imus apology did not stop him from receiving the scorn of the black community and eventually losing his job?

Jackson thrives on face time. That needs to be denied to him and the MSM needs to point out his racist remarks for what they are and not let him off with a weak apology. People like Al Sharpton need to have as much enthusiasm in pursuing this racism as they do when Duke lacrosse players are falsely accused of raping a black woman, when the criminal acts of teens in Jena Louisiana are defended based on their skin color, when a cab driver in New York accidentally hits and kills a black kid, when landlords raise rent on black tenants, when golf announcers mention lynching, and when Don Imus makes a boneheaded statement.

All Al Sharpton and the rest of the race baiters need to do is pursue Jackson just as they would if a white guy had made the statement. In reality, Jackson’s statement was no different than if he had said “I just want to lynch him.”

If you want racial equality, stop having two sets of standards and actually treat everyone equally.

To do anything else castrates your cause…

    That is something that I had thought about also. The idea crossed my mind about what would have happened had he said lynched. We saw what happened to the golf commentator and she didn’t mean it in the manner it was taken.
    I also think that Jackson is resentful of Obama because if Obama wins the presidency it throws Jesse’s whole “America isn’t fair” argument out the window.

  2. Schatzee says:

    That’s a good point. Of course, I am amazed that an (insincere) apology was all it took to appease Obamanation. If this had been a white guy, even a full pound of their flesh would not have sufficed. Imus lost his job for his “Nappy…” comment and has never been allowed to live it down. Yet we had to sweep both of those racial pastors under the rug and now Jackson gets off with a “my bad.” Wrong, wrong, wrong –

    Is this perhaps a sign of what is to come if Obama
    becomes president? Letting the black racist off with less then a “my bad” and hanging whitey out to dry.

    They might start lynching and castrating whitey – you know, make up for all the oppression they imagine they suffer? New affirmative action – greaatttt.

    Big Dog,

    I wrote last week on my site that Jesse is like a woman scorned. Jesse sees Barack doing to him what Bill did to Hill with Monica. He is like any woman who feels betrayed. The irony is that it is Bubba and Jesse that need to be neutered. They just can’t help themselves.
