Jesse Jackson: Founders “maybe shouldn’t have said ‘endowed by our creator'”

In the wake of the “God” debacle at the DNC on Wednesday, September 5, Sean Hannity interviewed Reverend Jesse Jackson from the convention.

The DNC intially removed reference to God and Jerusalem as the capital of Israel from its platform. Then, on Wednesday, they tried to add it back in on a voice vote from the floor. The voice vote, which requires a 2/3 vote became a debacle, when three times the DNC chair Antonio Villaraigosa called the vote and three times it failed to pass, amidst boos on it being added back. On the third try, Villaraigosa just declared it affirmed, although it was clear it had not achieved the required vote total.

Hannity then interviewed Jackson asking what he thought of what had occurred.  At ~3:30:

HANNITY: We are endowed by our creator, our founding document. We are endowed by our creator. It was in the 2008 platform, it was seven times in the 2004 platform. They purposely took it out. The delegates wanted to keep it out you. How should America interpret that?

JACKSON: Maybe it shouldn’t have been the word “creator” in the first place. I’ve gone to schools where you have 50 different languages and several different religions, and so the issue of a religion and a name can be quite divisive a multi-cultural society.

Note: the transcript on Fox of this exchange is inaccurate, the video clearly shows what Jackson said.

  1. I wonder if racial extortionists like Jackson will get around to claiming all words are ‘divisive’.

    “…When stripped of its many pretenses, the political left’s objective is control. It goes about trying to gain that control using a very simple formula: creating an enemy, and creating resentment in as many people as possible against that created enemy. It seeks to exploit envy to satiate its greed for power and never lets a crisis (real or imagined) go to waste…”

    Why do idiots insist on giving traitors like this airtime??

  6. Reblogged this on PUMABydesign001's Blog and commented:
    Jesse Jackson credibility went out the window that day he lied about being on the balcony with Martin Luther King, Jr. at the time of his assassination.

    Jackson like Progressives believes in taking advantage of a good crisis but as far as being a man of God, Jackson sold his soul decades ago. He is a deceiver, overseer and puppet of the Progressive plantation whose allegiance is to Obama and himself ONLY.

  7. In furtherance, Jackson is an opportunist. Remember his open mic moment back in 2008?

    Your statement about the transcript not being accurate is misstated. It is exactly what he said. I suppose you are relying on most people being too lazy to check.

  9. Apparently you didn’t listen to the video. Fox states clearly that the transcript is a “rush transcript”, no doubt not checked. The sentence in the transcript makes no sense. The video is absolutely clear.

    Nice try.

    First; The title “Reverend” is used by someone who has been CALLED by God. Will Jackson stop using it then? Second; Jesse Jackson has NEVER been ordained by ANY church. It is a title that he simply started using! Do you think he will stop? I doubt it.

    If our rights come from God then government can’t take them away. They can only abuse them. If our so called rights came from government then they are not really rights but merely priviliges which can be changed at the whim of those in control of the government.
    I have rights and will have untill I die.
