The Inevitable: Jesse Jackson Makes Ebola Scare About Jesse Jackson

The Inevitable: Jesse Jackson Makes Ebola Scare About Jesse Jackson

The Reverend bringeth the good news of…discrimination, and stuff.

As if Dallas weren’t enough of a circus already, Reverend Jesse Jackson has announced that he will be working with community leaders in Dallas to make sure that Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan receives “the best humanitarian relief” available.

(Because round the clock care and rare experimental drug therapy isn’t enough, I guess.)

Just when the people of Dallas thought it was safe to leave the house, right?

At any rate, Jackson landed in Dallas this morning and immediately began blaming a lack of health insurance for the terrible consequences of the reckless choices of Thomas Eric Duncan.

“He must be treated as a patient — with all the human rights preserved — not as a criminal,” Jackson stated. Duncan’s family believes that he may have been medically mishandled by the hospital after he was originally sent home by staffers.

Days later, paramedics transported the visitor from Liberia back to the hospital, where doctors eventually confirmed that Duncan is seriously sick with the Ebola virus. “Without insurance, he was only offered a cursory examination,” Jackson said. “Thomas needs the same treatment as others. They sent Ebola back into the community.”

“This is a good time for churches — black and white — to rally, and find common ground and healing,” Jackson said Tuesday morning. He plans to hold a prayer vigil outside of the hospital at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday. “This is the essence of the message of Jesus.”

Clearly, Mr. Jackson forgot that here in Texas, we have more beer, brisket, and Jesus Christ than we know what to do with. The backlash on Twitter has ranged from comical to brutal:

Zing. It would be funny if it weren’t true.

The point of this isn’t to mock the situation of those who came into contact with Duncan; Ebola is a wretched plague, and Duncan will be held accountable for bringing it to that small apartment in northeast Dallas. The point is that so. many. terrible. things. have happened in conjunction with the spread of Ebola. The Dallas hospital currently responsible for Duncan’s care made mistakes. The Obama Administration refuses to lead, and Democratic operatives are busy weighing the political capital associated with the disease.

People are dying, and Democrats are busy capitalizing on the fear and doubt of the American people.

Sounds like business as usual in Obama’s America.

Ah, Captain Irrelevant finds a mission.

I still remember him saying this: ” there is nothing more painful to me than to hear footsteps & start thinking about trobbery, then look & and see somebody white, & feel relieved.

The Obama Administration refuses to lead

Correction, it refuses to do its job – as a matter of policy.

A country monitors and controls its borders to (among other things) prevent exactly what’s happening now – the uncontrolled spread of infectious disease. That job was well understood centuries ago, so it should be easy, right? All the required mechanisms and bloated bureaucracies are already in place. No leadership or even original thought is required.

But as usual, Obama and his minions have exceeded my expectations. I supposed that he’d let in swarms of carriers of more prosaic contagions; tuberculosis, perhaps, or pneumonic plague. But he’s excelled himself this time.

nobody can stretch their 15-minutes of fame longer than Jesse.

JJ is a hustler who does not deserve the honorific “The Reverend” or its equivalents preceding his given name and surname. Please make it a policy of LI and CI to use not that honorific in connection with that hustler JJ. Given and surname are sufficient identifiers.

    Reasonable point, since he never even attended a seminary or theology school or had a church.

    There is a tradition in black churches in the South that the preacher is called “Reverend” but that is for those actually preach in churches.

St. Jerome said truly in one of his letters: “A vestment [i.e., an investiture] does not make a bishop.” Discriminate between genuine and demonic clergy and please do not dignify the latter with the honorific deserved by the former: By their fruits ….. not by their titles. Please. Title follows fruits which merit it. No exceptions.

What a guy!! Providing work for fumigators from coast to coast.

I think Mr. Jackson should personally visit the patient.

You might think the Revrunt Jesse “Baby Daddy” Jackson would have retired on his extortion proceeds by now.

But there is no rest for the weary when there is still damage to be done to the Republic – and a buck to made somehow.

    Nah, he’s got to extort a beer distributorship or something for his ex-Congresscritter son to live off of after he gets out of the slam. Texas is as good a place as any for grifters like him.

      Better than most, as we have a functioning economy.

      Plus, Dallas is prime hunting grounds for the Mau-mau King, what with idiot liberals running the city and all.

“They sent Ebola back into the community.” Seems to me, and I am neither a doctor or a lawyer, that Mr. Duncan’s own two feet had something to do with this.

One of Jesse’s messages was that the news had to be translated so that the “black community” could understand it.

Talk about infantilizing people.

But that IS one of the ways Jesse keeps himself in pa-wha.

Thomas Eric Duncan died this morning (Oct. 8th).

Jesse will have to find a new situation to exploit.

    Let Duncan endure the devil’s breath upon his brow for all eternity.

    He was a soulless man infested with a great magnitude of evil.

Using the word ‘Reverend’ in the same sentence as ‘Jesse Jackson’ is about as big a joke as using the work ‘law professor’ in the same sentence as ‘Barack Obama.’

Both complete frauds.
