Jesse Jackson: Redskins Scalped Indians, Reagan Wanted to Ban Black NFL Players


Every time Jesse Jackson opens his mouth, you can hear the earth over Martin Luther King’s grave moving as he turns over and over again.

Jesse Jackson is clearly jealous of Al Sharpton’s MSNBC career and is trying to out-stupid and out-racebait him. It’s a race to the bottom with a race card in one hand and a sheaf of racial conspiracy theories so stupid that Alex Jones would turn up his nose at them in the other.

Deceased Republican President Ronald Reagan sought to to permanently ban African Americans from playing college and professional football in the South with white people, civil rights icon Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. alleged in a speech at Furman University on Wednesday evening.

I’m surprised Jesse Jackson didn’t claim that Furman University was named after Mark Fuhrman.

In the same speech he also alleged that the modern Tea Party was born from efforts to sustain segregation.

Must have been some of that segregation that was going around in 2008. But if Sheila Lee Jackson can claim that her parents were slaves, why not?

“Goldwater and Reagan – had they been successful, it would have been illegal for blacks and whites to play together on a Saturday afternoon,” he said.

Reagan did become president. Oddly he did not seem to get around to banning black football players. Also he didn’t blot out the sun or take his oath on a Mein Kampf.

In the hour long speech, which focused on race but meandered through a number of subjects, Jackson made other incendiary comments, for example suggesting that the Washington Redskins name is a reference to the scalping of American Indians.

“How about pictures we see of Indians stabbing the cowboys,” he asked. “In reality what happened was if If you killed an Indian… [inaudible]…finally you got paid for the scalps of the red skins of the Indians…and that’s how we got the Washington Redskins football league.”

And Reagan was actually doing the scalping along with the Tea Party. But in the real world… no.

Here is what the Boston Globe published on July 6th, 1933: FOOTBALL BRAVES BECOME REDSKINS

It will be the Boston Redskins, and not the Boston Braves when the National Football League season gets under way next Fall. When Pres George Marshall entered an eleven from Boston in the professional football league last year the team was naturally christened the Boston Braves, but yesterday, just before starting for Chicago to attend the League’s annual meeting, he announced the change in name.

This new name is rather appropriate in more than one sense. The head and since the close of the 1932 season Pres Marshall and Coach Dietz have signed up a number of Indian players.1 Not only that, but the Boston National League ball park has long been called the Wigwam.

The team’s owner was a Tammany Hall member. Tammany was a Democratic Party urban political machine named after St. Tammany, a semi-fictional Indian chief who embodied the virtues that they were supposed to aspire to.

He repeatedly called the United States south “the land of the free, the home of genocide,” and suggested that the modern day Tea Party was born from efforts to maintain “the walls” of slavery and segregation.

Then he called New York City, Hymietown and vowed to cut Obama’s nuts off. For tolerance.

    Should not the Jackson noble house be done already?

    Jesse Jackson Sr, a minister (?), had a kid out of wedlock and committed adultery. Further his is a defendant in a sexual harassment lawsuit brought by a man.

    Jesse Jackson Jr is going to jail.


    I checked on the Reverend thing. You could not do what he did and get way with it.

    “He graduated with a B.S. in sociology in 1964, then attended the Chicago Theological Seminary on a scholarship. He dropped out in 1966, three classes short of earning his master’s degree, to focus full-time on the civil rights movement. He was ordained a minister in 1968, and in 2000, was awarded his Master of Divinity Degree based on his previous credits earned, plus his life experience and subsequent work”

    Democrats will say “Our Jim Crow, KKK, Opposing Civil Rights, Opposing Women’s Voting days are over”. Today we are no longer racist. . .

    He repeatedly called the United States south “the land of the free, the home of genocide,”

    in the case of JJ – this is wishful thinking. genocide of whites, that is.

    or is he referring to the black on black daily murder rates in gun free urban centers run by D’s ?

    If this nutjob and Jimmy Carter were successful, almost the whole world, including the United States, would have become Communist totalitarian country. There is no evidence that suggests that Reagan (nor Goldwater) was allegedly a “racist” nor a “bigot. On the contrary, Reagan was the exact opposite. Check this link out for more on the truth that Jackson is apparently allergic to: . If the “civil rights” icon wants to see real racism and bigotry, he should see two of his so-called “role models” (three if you count them all as individual people): Jimmy Carter and the Castro Brothers (Fidel and Raul), who are good friends with one another. Carter, while he was Governor of Georgia had praised his Lt. Governor as the “essence of the Democratic Party” and had an amicable relationship with this vile person. And who was this vile person? It was racial segregationist Lester Maddox. You see, throughout Carter’s life, he has had amicable friendships with racists, bigots, Communist totalitarians and Islamists. Meanwhile, the Castro brothers continue to run a corrupt family dictatorship in Castrogonia (Cuban American blogger Carlos Eire’s term for Communist Cuba), where people are fed smaller portions of food daily than the daily diet that Cuban slaves had in colonial Cuba (when it was a colony of monarchic Spain) in 1842. It might interest readers to know that the Castro brothers had incarcerated the longest served black political prisoner in modern history. Eusebio Penalver served 28 years-from 1960 to 1988-in Castrogonia’s dungeons. And yet, there is no outcry from Jackson on these facts. Instead, along with role model Carter, Jackson has called for the federal government to lift the non-existent “embargo” on Castrogonia (there are only limited sanction on Castrogonia and limited amounts of imports from that regime). There is more evidence that pigs fly than Reagan having any animosity towards any racial or ethnic group. There is, however, ample evidence that suggests that Carter combines the ideologies of racism, bigotry, “social justice”, “democratic socialism”, Communism, Islamism, anti-Americanism, anti-Westernism and of course anti-Semitism. That is undeniable.

    Jesse’s simply expressing what most Black’s think: It’s Whitey’s fault that we’re screwed up! Obama merely intensified that near universal sentiment among Blacks:

    -10/2011 Gallup poll: racial optimism declines; 35 percent said race relations had improved due to Obama’s election, 41 percent said no change, and 23 percent said things were worse.

    -7/30/12 Detroit News: Shortly before the 2008 election, 56 percent of Americans surveyed by the Gallup organization said that race relations would improve if Obama were elected. One day after his victory, 70 percent said race relations would improve and only 10 percent predicted they would get worse.
    Double, double toil and trouble;
    Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
