RUSH: The Reverend Jackson has weighed in on the shooting in Duncan, Oklahoma. This would be the Reverend Jackson, Sr. I don't think the Jr. is a reverend anyway, right? Jesse Jr. So here we have the statement on the shooting of Chris Lane in Oklahoma by a couple of black teenagers. Here it is from Twitter. The Reverend Jackson has tweeted the following: "Praying for the family of Chris Lane. This senseless violence is frowned upon and the justice system must prevail." And that it's.
"This senseless violence is frowned upon."
I mean, frowned upon? That's kind of like mildly objecting to something, isn't it? It's less than a slap on the wrist. I mean, you frown at somebody, there's no physical contact there. "This senseless violence is frowned upon." Very moving and heartfelt, isn't it? No, we don't know if it was a Jesse tweet or his staff. Whoever tweeted it, I'm not feeling a whole lot of moral outrage there. "Frowned upon" is not strident. It's not really powerful morally. (interruption) "At least it's not a smiley face." Is that how we're supposed to judge it? Okay. So it's not a smiley face, it's frowned upon. All right. You mean that's sufficient?
So the Reverend Jackson has officially "frowned upon" the violence in Duncan, Oklahoma.
