Jesse Jackson calls Florida an ‘apartheid state’; Bonus points: On Nelson Mandela’s birthday

A two-fer Thursday from the Reverend Jesse Jackson!

Jackson’s statement on CNN today of “the inclination to boycott Florida, stop conventions, to isolate Florida as a kind of apartheid state” if the DOJ doesn’t act against George Zimmerman wouldn’t be less ridiculous on any other day. However, given the fact that this is Nelson Mandela’s birthday, many tweeters thought Jackson’s accusation was, well, extra stupid and over the top:

Jackson better be careful not to peak too soon. If he’s already labelled Florida as an “apartheid state,” what will tomorrow bring?

Brace for a possible orange juice boycott:

    What a clown. Apparently being a victim of your own warped mentality is equivalent to a state’s implementation of apartheid. The idiocy displayed here is so frustrating.

      There’s no question, the veracity of his mendacity is
      trying the capacity, of my tenacity.
      Peace out, my Brothers and Sisters.

        This ^100 times.

  • Jack Deth

    Says the life long race baiting and pimping media whore who doesn’t understand big words.

    So very, very sad. He deserves every bit of blow back over this chronic stupidity!

      It’s Jesse desperately trying to remain relevant.

    He needs subtitles whenever he speaks… so does “Precious” Rachel Jeantel.

    On the right: The man that taught him everything he knew.
    On the left: The man that forgot everything he was taught.

      I think Jackson was in it for the money and attention from the start.
      I wouldn’t be surprised if he made sure he was on that balcony so that…well, you know.

  • Chip

    If libs keep boycotting FL, I’m moving there….

  • grais

    That’s retarded, sir.
    You cheapen and diminish the horrors of REAL apartheid.

  • Maxx

    The poverty pimp sure has an interesting take on apartheid.

    “There is nothing more painful to me … than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery, then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved.” – Jesse Jackson March 1996.

    • grais

      He’s an enormous part of the reason that he has that pain.
      It’s been his life’s goal.

  • midwestconservative

    At least Florida is a State. Suck it D.C.!!

  • agroulx

    I would love for Jethee Jackthnn to stay the hell out of Florida. And if his ignorant statement causes some of his followers to move or stay out as well, thats a double win.

    Shorter Jesse Jackson:Open mouth, insert foot, repeat…. Remember his “Hymietown” comment about New York City? ‘Nuff said. Jawamax 8<{D}

    Pre-verdict Jesse, race profiteer (07/12/2013)

    “I have no idea what the verdict will be but I do hope that the American people will embrace it and not stir up trouble.”

    “And I hope that whatever the verdict is that leaders lead….lead us in a direction of healing.”

    Rather short expiration date on that BS as it turned out.

    Would somebody please give him a beer distributorship so he’ll go away.

    If Mandela lived under Obamacare he would have been dead a long time ago.

    What happened to Martin was the best thing that happened to Sharpton and Jackson since Obama got elected.
