So, Jesse Jackson wants to cut Barack Obama's nuts off. While that idea has crossed my mind, too--just kidding!--I'm shocked at the crime that the dear Reverend feels warrants such drastic punishment. It seems that Obama, from Jackson's point of view, talked down to Blacks. How? By supporting Bush's faith-based social initiatives. The fiend! Well, if you ask me it's Jesse Jackson who needs HIS nuts cut off. He should've had them knifed before he fathered that illegitimate child with his young-enough-to-be-his-daughter mistress. The nerve of this guy!
And what's this idea that endorsing faith-based social programs is "talking down" to Blacks? Aren't Blacks supposed to be some of the most religious people in America? Why, then, would they have a kneejerk objection to church-based charities receiving some government funding? I mean, I can understand how some people might think that government money might have too many strings attached and could, consequently, hinder the Church's job of promoting the Gospel. That's a legitimate concern. But to say that Obama is talking down to Blacks by praising Bush's faith-based initiatives is downright delusional.
Jackson, the illegitimate daddy, was also upset with Obama "lecturing" Blacks on morality. Blacks faced more serious problems, Jackson opined, than paternal irresponsibility. Black men who father children and then walk away are just a symptom of the real problems facing Blacks, Jackson believes. This is a classic liberal view. Minorities behaving badly are not responsible for their actions but, rather, are victims of unjust "structures" forced on them by our racist, capitalist society. This view doesn't just provide an easy out for Jackson personally; it is the guiding principle of the entire leftist, civil rights establishment. And Jackson's attack on Obama shows just how intolerant of dissent that establishment is.
I am no Obama supporter. I'm a conservative who believes that Obama is a strident liberal now trying to pass himself off as a moderate. I believe his Father's Day speech on the need for paternal responsibility was part of that strategy. Still, Jackson's attack on Obama was terribly unfair. There IS an urgent need for more paternal responsibility in the Black community, which has an appalling illegitimacy rate. And liberal orthodoxy has no solution for that. Jackson and others like him should abandon their liberalism and return to preaching Biblical morality and values. Then a moral renewal could engulf the Black community and solve its most intractable problems. But then Jesse Jackson and gang would be out of a job, so we know that won't happen. Oh well, it was nice to dream about, if only for a second. And the abandon Black babies continue to cry.
