by Mark S. Mann,
Many years ago, I heard the saying “no one can make you look like a bigger idiot than you make yourself.” When you think of how easily it is to put a foot in one’s own mouth, it makes sense. Several years ago, I became acquainted with Jesse Jackson. To say we are “friends” is a bit of a stretch, but acquainted we were. I also got to be pretty familiar with Jesse’s organization Rainbow Coalition, and his band of cronies I affectionately refer to as “Jesse’s Rent-A- Mob”. Rarely have I seen a bigger sham.
Since drugs, gangs, crime, and gun violence have taken their toll on America’s Black Communities, it is a shame that Jesse Jackson has used these issues to both enrich and aggrandize himself and his organization. An even bigger shame is the fact that Jackson could probably make some positive impact on these issues if he focused on the real problems which lead to gun violence, instead of placing blame on the guns themselves. Whether people like Jackson or not, he does have a voice, and a following, although it seems to get smaller all the time.
I hear people say “Why even listen to this guy?” Why? Because, I think it’s important to see how out of touch with reality anti-gun pundits are. Not only is Jackson grossly out of touch with reality, but he is also guilty of the same ultimate hypocrisy as many other anti-gun advocates, including those in the Democratic Party and the Chicago political machine. Jesse is notorious for having several armed body guards in his entourage at all times. So, once gain the message from people like Jesse and his political cronies is: “Guns are bad, no one should have them, unless you are politically connected.” This is the same double standard the politically privileged use against “We the People” on a daily basis. Do you see the disconnect here? I don’t know about you, but it makes me angry.
