RUSH: The Reverend Jackson was in South Carolina yesterday. ‘Jackson called Tuesday on Democrats seeking the 2008 nomination for president to give S.C. voters “something to vote for” when they go to the polls in January. On a statewide tour to register new voters, Jackson said South Carolina will determine ‘who has momentum’ in the primary when it votes Jan. 29.’ But the big news coming out of the Reverend Jackson’s appearance was that he said, in being critical of Senator Ubama, that he’s ‘acting like he’s white.’ Jackson said Ubama has had a tepid response to six black juveniles’ arrests on attempted murder charges in Jena, Louisiana.
The Reverend Jackson said that, ‘If I were a candidate, I’d be all over Jena. Jena is a defining moment, just like Selma was a defining moment.’ He said he did not recall making the ‘acting like he’s white’ comment about Ubama, stressing he only wanted to point out the candidates had not seized an opportunity to highlight the latest racial incident, ladies and gentlemen. Well, another liberal questioning the authenticity, ladies and gentlemen, of Barack Obama, the ‘Magic Negro’.
(Playing of ‘Barack, the ‘Magic Negro” song.)
Ah, yes, that’s well-known white comedian Paul Shanklin as the Reverend Sharpton there. ‘Barack the ‘Magic Negro” on the heels of the Reverend Jackson saying that Barack Ubama is acting like he’s white in not dealing with civil rights cases and events that are happening all over the country. I love that because Reverend Al goes off the lyric line there, just can’t stay on the lyric line and starts protesting the recording session, and then, of course, you had the chorus trying to drown him out as they keep singing.
