To be honest if Ronald Reagan were alive today he would smile and turn toward Jesse Jackson and say."There he goes again." That is about the level of seriousness that the nation should consider in taking any utterance that comes out of the civil rights leader who is on the backend of his race-baiting crusading career. This time Jackson has directed his aim at Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson, in order to regain another 15 minutes of national shamelessness.

Rev. Jackson is demanding that A&E network executives meet with him because he and his less than significant Rainbow PUSH Coalition organization as well as the LGBT organization GLAAD still want to get 40 more pounds of flesh out of the Duck Commander, according to Fox News.

It seems that the fact that Phil Robertson has been suspended for the time being by A&E is not enough for the perturbed Jackson. So in order to find a way to pound in another liberal mainstream nail into Duck Dynasty's leader he has resurrected the name and imagery of legitimate Civil Right Icon Rosa Parks.

Jackson who has mastered the art of stage subterfuge claimed that what Phil Robertson said in his GQ interview amounted to being "more offensive than the bus driver in Montgomery, Alabama, more than 59 years ago," according to the Daily Mail

Never for a loss for drama and turn of phrases Jackson went on to claim further in his statement, that the 67-year-old Duck Dynasty star's state Robertson's statements were uttered, "freely and openly and without cover of the law, within a context of what he seemed to believe was "white privilege," claimed Jackson according to the Daily Mail. So in effect, Jesse Jackson has the same ominous powers of being able to read minds just like Oprah Winfrey who claimed several months ago to be able to detect racist thoughts of white people, because of many White Americans who disagreed with Obama and his unsuccessful policies.

Oprah like Jesse Jackson has never been unwilling to use the "race card" when the situation presents itself. She claimed a few months back in a BBC interview that racism is the problem that prevents Obama from achieving his potential, and not his incompetence. Therefore her vast mental powers detected that this alleged racism will end, when "older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die" she stated according to News Busters.

So there you have it one rich as in, billionaire rich race baiter who wants old white people to die in order to give the Incompetent-in-Chief a break and the other a race hustler who wants to take down a man who speaks his biblical faith. The two deserve the 2013 Race Baiter of the year Award, with Al Sharpton bringing up the rear a close second.

Maybe, just maybe Jesse Jackson and Oprah might do all of America a favor and retire to their imaginary world where they can drink mint juleps and pretend that it is 1963 all over again. Hopefully that new world of theirs has nice white walls too and a little padding to make it nice and comfy.
