Jesse Jackson Thinks Tea Partiers & Gun Owners Want to ‘Resurrect the Confederacy’

-By Warner Todd Huston

If you favor the Tea Party way or you are a gun owner, Jesse Jackson wants you to know you are a racist, terrorist just like members of the old Confederacy.

That’s right, Jackson thinks if you believe in the U.S. Constitution, you are a terrorist looking to over throw the government and kill black people and you want to bring back slavery and the old Confederacy.

He’s made these idiotic, hyperbolic statements many times, of course–like in the video above from Feb. of this year–But his latest statement was made in remarks to Politico on the eve of the anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

“The Tea Party is the resurrection of the Confederacy, it’s the Fort Sumter Tea Party,” the race-baiting “reverend” said on Tuesday.

Jackson went on to insist that the only reason any one would oppose President Obama is because they hate black people.

I guess it couldn’t be because Obama is trying to destroy the United States and make it a weaker, lesser version of France, eh?

It couldn’t be because Obama has shown that he hates the U.S. Constitution and has done all he could to undermine it by working via fiat regulatory rules without even consulting or working with Congress on most of them, could it?

Nah. Gotta be raaaaaacism.

Sadly, with the willing assistance of a lapdog media and full control of our schools Obama is succeeding beyond his wildest, America-hating dreams… from his father.
