Enraged Jesse Jackson slams Phil Robertson: ‘More offensive’ than Rosa Parks’s bus driver

Pimp with a hair lip.

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without hearing from the Reverend Jesse Jackson, especially in the wake of the uproar from political liberals since reality TV star Phil Robertson’s voiced his opinion of active homosexuality, as reported by ABC News via Yahoo.com on Dec. 25, 2013.

Activists from GLAAD and Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH organization have expressed outrage over the A+E network’s star of “Duck Dynasty” stating in a recent interview with GQ magazine that his interpretation of Sacred Writ is that active homosexuals would not attain heavenly salvation.

Robertson has since been been placed on indefinite “hiatus” by A+E.

Enter Rosa…

Managing to bring civil rights icon Rosa Parks into the mix, Jackson was quoted by ABC News as stating:

These statements uttered by Robertson are more offensive than the bus driver in Montgomery, Alabama, more than 59 years ago.

At least the bus driver, who ordered Rosa Parks to surrender her seat to a white person, was following state law. 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.’

The much demonized patriarch of the Robertson clan also alluded that while growing up in the Deep South during the ’50s and ’60s, he was just as poor and on the receiving end of bigotry and prejudice as the blacks he personally knew:

I never, with my eyes, saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. Where we lived was all farmers. The blacks worked for the farmers. I hoed cotton with them. I’m with the blacks, because we’re white trash.

Jackson nor ABC News have mentioned that Robertson grew up in a wooden shack with no electricity or indoor plumbing.

Neither have ever mentioned that Robertson’s adopted grandson, Willie Jr, is half black.

  1. I lost my Job from a Black Doctor who believed that when the black patient attacked me I cause it because I was white. That Doctor was a Racist who believe that all whites were racists. Blacks are human and also can be Racists.

    1. Jessie Jackson will play whatever side of the fence that has money and can pay him. Jackson and Sharpton are Reverends only in name, they go where the money is! Just like the Zimmerman trial, you pay him enough money and he will scream racism for how ever long you want it.

  2. JJ is pathetic. He didn’t criticize his son when he stole money from Cook County.
    He didn’t criticize his daughter in law when she stole money from Chicago taxpayers.

    If he is truly a reverend then he knows that “people without sin cast the first stone”.

  3. What happened to someone being able to have an opinion? Phil Robertson has the constitutional right to have and express an opinion. If anyone disagrees with it, they have the right to ignore it.

    It is as if some people have nothing better to do with their life that stand around and wait for something to be offended about. That is sad and pathetic! I pity those.

    Personally, I have a great deal of respect for those who have the courage to state their opinion regardless of who it “offends”. If do not like their opinion, I simply ignore it…it works wonders!!!
