Photo of a tea party and not one confederate flag in the crowd
Jesse Jackson told Politico Tuesday that he “absolutely” thinks congressional Republicans are motivated by race when they oppose the president’s policies.
“The tea party is the resurrection of the Confederacy, it’s the Fort Sumter tea party,” Jackson said.
Grumpy Elder found their traitorous version of a US flag being waved by an NEA (National Education Association) member. I wonder if this desecrated flag with Obama replacing the stars would be more acceptable to Jesse than the confederate flag? It certainly says a lot about what is important to them and it’s not the states and our individual liberty. Does that make me a racist for saying that or is he the racist and a traitorous statist?
It’s not the first time he has accused the opposition of being the pre-Civil War confederacy. He thinks gun owners are confederates too! He sees the confederacy where no one else does.
