Daily Mail: 'If it's a moment, we go home. If it's a movement, we go to war... there is power in the blood of the innocent.'
The Rev. Jesse Jackson
The Rev Jesse Jackson today called Trayvon a 'martyr' and said 'blacks are under attack'
This is why Jesse Jackson is a vile political opportunist and race baiter. He goes down to Florida and uses rhetoric to stir tensions that can explode into racial violence. It�s the height of irresponsibility and hyponasty given the fact that his own city, Chicago, is a worse shooting gallery than Afghanistan. Just last week on St. Patrick�s Day weekend 49 people were shot, almost half a dozen killed in the Windy City. I didn�t hear Jackson say a word in the national press bemoaning Chicago is the 21st century version of Dodge City. Try googlling �Chicago shooting� and you see what I�m talking about.
The fact there hasn�t been an arrest in the Trayvon Martin killing is enough rhetoric to go on. It appears to be an injustice that many can agree on. But, to stir racial tensions and fire people into frenzy to suit a shallow political agenda is foul and dishonest.
If Blacks are under attack as Jesse Jackson claims, then let�s call a spade a spade and prominently mention who really doing all that is shooting�other Blacks, like in Chicago!
The Last Tradition is fast becoming one of the most noted political blogs on the net. Don�t miss out on the fun and tell a friend.
