RUSH: Speaking of black Americans, the Reverend Jackson — have you heard about this, Mr. Snerdley? ‘The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Wednesday night criticized Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.) for voting against the Democrats’ signature healthcare bill. ‘We even have blacks voting against the healthcare bill,’ Jackson said at a reception Wednesday night. ‘You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.” Jesse Jackson, there he is, the arbiter of race in this country. One of the two experts on race that the State-Controlled Media constantly turns to, to find out where we are in this country in the matter of race relations. ‘The remark stirred a murmur at the reception, held by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Foundation as part of a series of events revolving around the 25th anniversary of Jackson’s run for president.’ Do you believe this? Life is just one big party to this guy! They had a party to celebrate the anniversary of Million Man March and now they have a party to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Reverend Jackson’s presidential campaign.
Are we going to get a ten-year anniversary for Al Sharpton’s? (laughing) Everything is black-and-white in the Reverend Jackson’s constricted world. (interruption) Now, Pete Rozelle… You mean Roger Goodell? Pete Rozelle, you know, is up at the great gridiron in the sky. Has Roger Goodell weighed in on this? I don’t know. I don’t know that he knows about it yet. But Jesse Jackson says, ‘You can’t vote against health care and call yourself a black man.’ You can be a black man but you can’t ‘call yourself’ one. The reception celebrating the 25th anniversary of Jackson’s run for president, though, is not to be confused with Mr. Jackson’s birthday celebration which was Friday, November 13th, 2009, which was held in Beverly Hills at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. So less than a week ago, there was a birthday party for the Reverend Jackson; and then there was a reception six days later, five days later for the 25th anniversary of his run for president. For some people, life, I guess, is just one big party. But I wonder: Can you throw so many parties for yourself as this guy does and still call yourself a black man?
RUSH: I have a question. I have a question, and I must ask this question of the Official Obama Criticizer. So could you suspend the call screening for a second? I don’t expect an immediate answer; I know you’re going to have to ponder this one, because the Official Obama Criticizer is certified black enough to criticize. What percentage of slave blood do you say you have? There’s ‘100% pure organic slave blood’ flowing through the magnificence of Bo Snerdley. All right, so here’s the question: ‘Can you knock up a woman who works for you while you’re married — and then pay her out of your nonprofits funds to keep quiet — and call yourself a black man?’
You can do that? It’s been done? Jesse Jackson? That’s right! Jesse Jackson did it! Oh! See, this is why we have the Official Obama Criticizer on our staff. I knew it. I thought it might take some research on your part. The Official Obama Criticizer reminds us that: yes, Jesse Jackson has done this. But he can call himself a black trailblazer, that’s right. He can call himself a black man because he’s for health care reform, right? And he knocked up a woman while he was married, that was working for him, and paid her to keep quiet from the funds out of his nonprofit, the Monochrome Coalition. Okay. Folks, when we have questions, this program gets answers. By the way, AOL plans to cut one-third of employees, about 2,300 employees. More saving and creating jobs going on out there in this country, thanks to the policies of the Reverend Jackson.
