Jesse Jackson Declares Florida an “Apartheid State”

I wonder if the large Jewish community in Florida had something to do with Jesse Jackson’s decision. In any case Florida is now officially an Apartheid State as defined by Jesse Jackson in his official role as Emperor of Black People.

What makes Florida an Apartheid State considering that the last Democratic candidate for governor was black? And there are three black congressmen from Florida? Take it away Jesse.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson has called to boycott the “apartheid state” of Florida if the Department of Justice does not lodge a civil rights case against George Zimmerman.

“Trayvon is a symbol of a deeper malady,” the reverend said in a CNN interview Thursday.

“No doubt, the inclination is to boycott Florida, stop conventions, to isolate Florida as a kind of apartheid state” if the DOJ does not act, Jackson said.

Florida has no connection to a Federal decision. You would think a man who ran for president would know that. Boycotting Florida because the Justice Department didn’t do something Jackson wanted is like Jesse Jackson’s wife suing Japan because of his infidelity.

It just doesn’t make sense.

Jackson charged that homicides against blacks have tripled since stand your ground laws were put in place in Florida. The Daily Caller reported Tuesday that the law actually benefits blacks in the state disproportionately, saying blacks made about a third of Florida’s total stand your ground claims in homicide cases, a rate nearly double the black percentage of the state’s population.

That just proves it’s an Apartheid State. How? Err… you’re a racist. That’s how.

    Jesse Jackson has never listened to facts or reasons, he prefers to be a loose cannon shooting from the hip…errrr lip….

  • RedStateVet

    Is he even relevant anymore, except to the other racial arsonists?

    • NAHALKIDES

      Only to the extent that spineless corporations and politicians allow themselves to be blackmailed by this race hustler.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    Oh great uniter, our dear leader of hope and change, please guide us to the healing you promised.

    Might as well pray to a golden calf.

    Is the Hispanic community getting a little tired at the way liberal and black America is going after Zim? Or is politics thicker than blood and do establishment leftist Hispanics view Zim as “white” as we’ll?

    • hpe reader

      ServosT,
      That is a good observation. There are a lot of cross currents in this whole mess and the race baiters are going to get caught in one of them, if they continue. If you listen to the Piers Morgan interview with Jeantel, it becomes obvious that Travon punched Zimmerman because he though Zimm was a homosexual trying to “kidnap” him.
      How will that play out? Building a wall against the Hispanic community on the one hand, and insulting gays on the other.
      Let Jackson, Sharpton and company keep on stirring the turd. It will get interesting.

      This is a real critical weakness that needs to be attacked. We need T-shirts with Zimmerman’s picture that say “Democrats Hate Latinos” and hoodies with his picture and the phrase “Obama hates Hispanics.” Where is Dolores Huerta now?

  • Profit

    Yes, more liberals should listen to Jesse Jackson and call FL an apartheid state and MOVE OUT. Clean house and turn the state back to red.

    They’re 12% of the national population,Florida, you’ll never even miss them.

    Just sayin’.

  • Billiamo

    He is wickedly stupid.

    • hpe reader

      Billiamo, you just ‘splained the whole thing.

  • Bob

    Who cares what he says, he is old news.

  • OfficialPro

    This just proves that Jesse Jackson doesn’t actually know what apartheid means.

    • Gee

      Most leftists don’t. That is why they accuse Israel of being an apartheid state when it is the only one in the region that does not nor ever has had a single vestige of an apartheid type law

      • OfficialPro

        not only that, many of the people who use the word “apartheid” gratuitously, are in fact themselves supporters of a form of apartheid, because they think apartheid means “racism” when in fact it means “SEGREGATION”! And many black Separatists are in fact for segregation.

    Jackson’s real first name is Bojangles

    • Edward

      Why don’t you swallow your namesake and take a dirt nap.

  • ElizabethMC

    Jessie is a racist because he believes that blacks are too stupid to know he’s spouting misinformation . Or should I say Disinformation?.

    • Seek

      The problem is that most blacks ARE too stupid to recognize his idiocies for what they are.

      • OfficialPro

        and a lot of whites too, thanks to Communist Union Members ruining the Education system.

  • hpe reader

    Wow, great news that Florida may become a safe haven for against flash mobs. Thank you, Mr. Jackson

    • MostInterestingMan

      It was reported on Fox, that evidence on Trayvon’s phone establishes that he was not just smoking pot, but selling it, he was not just holding a gun, but also selling them, and that he was really into fighting and commenting on his friends’ fights. Can ANYONE out there tell me if this is known to be true and if so where can I read a report about the facts?? Thanks in advance, and stay thirsty my friends ;-)

  • hpe reader

    Isn’t it amazing how Black “leaders” insist on wearing symbols of the failed culture that prevents them from escaping the problems they lament?

  • capt_z1

    This race baiting loudmouth should be sharing a cell with his crooked son.

    • OfficialPro

      the apple dun fall far from da tree in da hood.

  • Philo Vaihinger

    He was always too stupid to be president.

    Jesse Jackson in a doo-rag. The photo is hilarious — far funnier than Michael Dukakis in that Army helmet peering out of a tank. And of course, his opinions, filled as they are with wild hyperbole and generalization, are as absurd as ever. Why do blacks take this clown seriously? Are they that dumb?

  • Gee

    Considering that the murder rate in Florida has gone down since the law was passed – I wonder how Jesse Jackson’s claims have any bearing

  • 90503

    So, what should we call California after they declared OJ Simpson innocent?

  • jazzmad

    Can anyone please tell me what that silly looking thing on his head is? And why does he not know instinctively, how horribly stupid he looks wearing it.
    And he’s a leader?

    And when are Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Obama, Eric Holder, the Black Panthers, and others going to stop this? They are the ones dividing this country. Why don’t they listen to those who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms?

    “What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the
    United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not
    violence and lawlessness, but is love and wisdom, and compassion toward
    one another, feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our
    country, whether they be white or whether they be black.” ~Robert F.
    Kennedy

    They are using the RACE CARD and they don’t understand that it has expired!!

  • FACTS

    Jesse said he won’t apologize for he remarks directed toward Florida or to Governor Rick Scott, according to Fox News. Keep in mind, Jesse
    Jackson referred to Jews as “Hymies” and to New York City as
    “Hymietown.’ What kind of a Reverend says such anti-Semitic remarks? As a
    Jew, that is so offensive! Then he insults our
    state calling Florida an “apartheid state”! I say get him and his Dream
    Defenders out of our state of Florida and send them back to their home
    states! So far it’s cost the taxpayers of Florida over $200,000 for his
    antics with the Dream Defenders. The taxpayers of Florida are paying for
    this. Please, get him out! He’s got some nerve coming to my state
    trying to stir up division. Just think about how he’s
    insulted Floridians, our state and the Jews! I say it’s time for a showdown. How about getting the NRA to sit-in the Capital and protest!
