Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

Why Might Jesse
Identify With Tookie?

It comes as no surprise that the

Media outnumber protesters in hours before execution

Neither came it as a surprise that

Among the anti-death penalty protesters were the Rev. Jesse Jackson,

Why Might Jesse Identify With Tookie?

As it turns out there may be other areas in which Jesse Jackson can identify with Stanley "Tookie" Williams besides the obvious.

I received the following tip from one of my readers a while back, but I have been saving it for a special occasion. ;-)

Court Rules Jesse Jackson Must Face Civil Trial for Assault and Civil Rights Violations

Judicial Watch represents Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson in claims against Jackson

(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes corruption, today announced that on January 17, 2006, Jesse Lee Peterson, et al., v. Jesse Jackson, et al. (BC 266505) will go to trial in Los Angeles County Superior Court after a ruling last week by Judge George H. Wu. Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit against Jackson, his son Jonathan, and others on behalf of Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, who was the victim of a physical and verbal assault at an event hosted by Jackson?s Rainbow/PUSH Coalition and Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. in December 2001. Rev. Peterson is an ordained minister, who has dedicated his life to working with underprivileged black youth and men in our society.

The Jacksons and the Rainbow/PUSH coalition, who had sought to have the case dismissed, will now face multiple civil charges, including: Assault, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress and a California Civil Rights Claim. Jonathan Jackson also will face the additional charges of Battery and False Imprisonment.

Judicial Watch?s lawsuit stems from a public meeting held in Los Angeles, California on December 10, 2001 to discuss participation in Toyota?s ?21st Century Diversity Strategy,? which had been announced after Jackson and Rainbow/PUSH threatened to boycott Toyota. After remarks from Jackson and Toyota representative Irving Miller, the meeting was opened up to questions from the audience. Rev. Peterson asked Miller if black Republicans and conservative groups like his organization, Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND), would have to go through Rev. Jackson?s Rainbow/PUSH in order to participate in the Toyota program.

Jackson told the crowd, ?And the issue, for the record?is not conservative or liberal. The issue is certain parasites trying to pick up fruit from trees they didn?t shake.? Rev. Peterson testified that after the ?parasite? comment, the crowd became ?more hostile?.Some of the words I can?t even mention here.?

Within minutes following adjournment of the meeting, Jonathan Jackson struck Rev. Peterson and Rev. Peterson was physically threatened and verbally assaulted by both Jesse Jackson and Jonathan Jackson. Incited by Jackson?s earlier remarks, an angry crowd gathered, cursing, shoving and encircling Rev. Peterson and one of his associates. ?I feared for my life,? said Peterson.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, ?Jesse Jackson attempted to use every legal trick at his disposal to have this case dismissed, and he failed. This trial is a major step in holding Jackson accountable for his actions.?

?I?m pleased the court ruled in our favor,? said Reverend Peterson. ?I am looking forward to taking my case to court and to forcing Jesse Jackson to answer for his actions.?

Here is one of the parts that jumped out at me.

The issue is certain parasites trying to pick up fruit from trees they didn?t shake.?

It is public record that the Good Reverend moved to Chicago some 40 years ago and to my knowledge in Chicago the "Shake Down" has been for decades honed to a fine degree as has strong arm tactics to enforce it.

Sounds like Gang Style Tactics to me.
