    Jesse Jackson says Trump helped ‘seed’ the clouds of recent violence

    Jesse Jackson says Trump helped ‘seed’ the clouds of recent violence, notes change in rhetoric


    Rev. Jesse Jackson speaks at the PUSHTech2020 Summit Wednesday, May 6, 2015, in San Francisco. Jackson and his Rainbow Push organization are holding the summit as part of a year-old campaign to pressure tech companies into hiring and promoting more ... more >

    By Ben Wolfgang - The Washington Times - Sunday, July 10, 2016

    Civil rights activist Jesse Jackson on Sunday said Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump helped “seed these clouds” that led to the violence seen across the country last week.


    Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” Mr. Jackson said the “deep divide” between whites and blacks in America is only getting worse because of Mr. Trump’s rhetoric, though he applauded the subdued tone the billionaire real estate mogul took in the aftermath of last week’s shootings.


    “When you do the birther movement with the president, which is a dog whistle for a kind of anti-black [attack], the anti-Mexican, the deportation of 15 million people, of families, disruption, anti-Muslim, that kind of rhetoric has helped to seed these clouds,” Mr. Jackson said. “I hope Mr. Trump will maintain the level of rhetoric” he used in his statement last Friday.


    In that statement, Mr. Trump both condemned the massacre of Dallas police officers Thursday night and the deaths of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota at the hands of law enforcement, urging the country to come together and heal.


    Moments later, Sen. Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican and a top Trump surrogate, said that Mr. Trump is the candidate to address employment in the African-American community and bring about economic growth.


    “Does it help poor African-Americans to bring in more labor than we have, and bring down wages as we’ve been seeing in this country? Does it help them to have bad trade deals so manufacturing plants are closed and wages aren’t there?” Mr. Sessions told Fox News.

    What a moron. Does it help poor minorities to spread "their seed" and breed and stay in poverty with multiple baby daddies? Living off the dole for 10 generations? Join gangs, drugs, crime? The SEED of hate and the SEED of the chip on your shoulder for 150 years? The SEED of anger, no respect for yourself or authority? The SEED of "you owe me"? The SEED of you killing each other off? How's that working out for you...not so much. Don't get me started on "SEED".

    How about PLANT the SEED that white people fought and lost their lives, their homes, their families for YOUR freedom...and YOU stomped on it and THREW it away. Do we ASK for thanks? Do we ASK for recognition? NO, we have asked for nothing...just that you stand proud, use the opportunity that we ALL have, and stop this poor me bullshit! Work hard, contribute to society, and act like a respectable human being.

    Nothing could be further from the truth - O caused this division, holder caused this division. They do not know how to act professionally. They coddle criminals like that is proper behaviour, the norm, illegal ones too.

    O has done nothing for our youth of any color - he gave their jobs to illegals and "refugees"

    Birther should have had his birth certificate, a real one, up front before running for potus. Who the hell is he to be beyond question? Question his muslim garb, his association with muslim brotherhood - why not? Question why he is involved with spreading islam to USA - why not?
    According to jesse, you ain't allowed to do that - BALONEY!

    Maybe Giuliani would be the best VP candidate. He always seems to be right on. Has he removed himself from consideration. I'd love to see it----two Big Apple boys lead the world.

    People like Jesse Jackson are so totally worthless. Jesse Jackson hasn't created one job for a Black American, Jesse Jackson hasn't saved one Black American from incarceration or injustice, Jesse Jackson hasn't helped one Black American do or achieve anything. What he has done is line his pockets his entire life on racist rhetoric.

    Race baiters like Jackson and Sharpton "seed" the problems while getting rich off it. I wonder if he visits his son and daughter-in-law in jail. JMO

    Sharpton’s Million Dollar Shakedown Racket


    From the inimitable New York Post:


    REV. AL SOAKS UP BOYCOTT BUCKS

    BIZ GIANTS PAY OR FACE RACE RALLIES
    By ISABEL VINCENT and SUSAN EDELMAN

    June 15, 2008 — Anheuser-Busch gave him six figures, Colgate-Palmolive shelled out $50,000 and Macy’s and Pfizer have contributed thousands to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s charity.

    Almost 50 companies – including PepsiCo, General Motors, Wal-Mart, FedEx, Continental Airlines, Johnson & Johnson and Chase – and some labor unions sponsored Sharpton’s National Action Network annual conference in April.

    Terrified of negative publicity, fearful of a consumer boycott or eager to make nice with the civil-rights activist, CEOs write checks, critics say, to NAN and Sharpton – who brandishes the buying power of African-American consumers. In some cases, they hire him as a consultant.

    The cash flows even as the US Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn has been conducting a grand-jury investigation of NAN’s finances.

    A General Motors spokesman told The Post that NAN had repeatedly – and unsuccessfully – asked for contributions for six years, beginning in August 2000.

    Then, in December 2006, Sharpton threatened to call a boycott of the carmaker over the closing of an African-American-owned GM dealership in The Bronx, and he picketed outside GM headquarters on Fifth Avenue.

    Last year, General Motors gave NAN a $5,000 donation. It gave $5,000 more this year, a spokesman said, calling NAN a "worthy" organization.

    In November 2003, Sharpton picketed DaimlerChrysler’s Chicago car show and threatened a boycott over alleged racial bias in car loans.

    "This is institutional racism," he bellowed.

    In May 2004, Chrysler began supporting NAN’s conferences, which include panels on corporate responsibility and civil rights and a black-tie awards dinner to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Last year, Sharpton gave Chrysler an award for corporate excellence.

    In 2003, Sharpton targeted American Honda for not hiring enough African-Americans in management.
    "We support those that support us," wrote Sharpton and the Rev. Horace Sheffield III, president of NAN’s Michigan chapter, in a letter to American Honda. "We cannot be silent while African-Americans spend hard-earned dollars with a company that does not hire, promote or do business with us in a statistically significant manner."

    Two months after American Honda execs met with Sharpton, the carmaker began to sponsor NAN’s events – and continues to pay "a modest amount" each year, a spokesman said.

    "I think this is quite clearly a shakedown operation," said Peter Flaherty, president of the National Legal and Policy Center in Virginia, a conservative corporate watchdog. "He’s good at harassing people and making noise. CEOs give him his way because it is a lot easier than confronting him."
    Sharpton denies his organization pressures corporations for cash.

    "That’s the old shakedown theory that the anti-civil-rights forces have used against us forever," he told The Post yesterday. "Why can’t they come up with one company that says that? No one has criticized me." …

    NAN, a tax-exempt nonprofit, closely guards its corporate largesse. Most companies also keep the sums secret, and some would not divulge them. The corporations interviewed by The Post viewed their relationships with NAN as friendly and beneficial.

    Anheuser-Busch states on its Web site that it gave the group "between $100,000 and $499,000" last year.

    Last year, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo found NAN had failed to file years’ worth of financial reports. The group has filed more records, but the AG’s office said it won’t release them pending the US attorney’s probe.

    In its 2006 IRS filing, the latest available, NAN reported about $1 million in contributions and $1.1 million in expenses and programs. It owes the IRS $1.9 million in payroll taxes, The Post has learned.

    A NAN spokesman said the group is cooperating with authorities "to pay whatever obligations it owes and continues to do so."
    What a shock. Apparently the laws against extortion have been repealed for high profile race hustlers like Messrs. Sharpton and Jackson.

    And not only that, it is tax exempt!

    We were inspired by the New York Post article to take a look at Mr. Sharpton’s organization.

    Here is how Mr. Sharpton describes his National Action Network to the IRS, via Guidestar:
    MISSION AND PROGRAMS

    THE NATIONAL ACTION NETWORK IS A (CHRISTIAN) ACTIVIST ORGANIZATION WEDDED TO THE PRINCIPLES OF THE NONVIOLENT PHILOSOPHY AND METHODOLOGY OF MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. AND ARE COMMITTED TO THE TASK OF THE LIBERATION FOR ALL OPPRESSED PEOPLES.
    1. NATIONAL ACTION NETWORK – CRISIS OUTREACH AND COMMUNITY PROGRAMS DESIGNED TO CHAMPION THE CAUSE OF PEOPLE OF COLOR ON REGIONAL POLITICAL AND SOCIAL ISSUES.
    2. THE MADISON AVENUE INITIATIVE – CONDUCTED MEETINGS WITH THE CEO’S AND TOP DECISION MAKERS OF SEVERAL OF THE NATION’S LEADING CONSUMER PRODUCT COMPANIES WHO, BASED ON MINORITY CONSUMPTION FIGURES, DO NOT SPEND ADEQUATE DOLLARS ON MINORITY MEDIA. BASED ON THE MEETINGS AND A REVIEW PROCESS, PUBLISHED A RATING OF COMPANIES IN MAI NEWSLETTER & WEB SITE.
    And here is the modest sum NAN collected in just the 2006, according to its form 990 (a pdf file):


    (Click to enlarge.)
    That’s right. Mr. Sharpton made $1,050.740.00 in 2006 alone from just this one organization.
    And if we are reading the form 990 right, NAN managed to spend more than that on salaries ($527,633) and consulting fees ($530,574):

    (Click to enlarge.)
    Mr. Sharpton is the only employee listed on the form.

    The National Action Network lists itself as a 501c4, which according to the US Code and Wikipedia is not supposed to be for the benefit of any private individual:
    501(c)(4)

    501(c)(4) exemptions are given to civic leagues or organizations not organized for profit and operated exclusively for the promotion of social welfare, or local associations of employees. Net earnings are devoted exclusively to charitable, educational, or recreational purposes.
    The exemption applies so long as "…no part of the net earnings of such entity inures to the benefit of any private shareholder or individual."
    And yet almost all of the money NAN collects goes to "salaries" and "consulting fees."

    Which sounds like a lot of inuring to the benefit of someone — most likely Mr. Sharpton.

    Also please note that out of the $1,050.740.00 taken in 2006, the National Action Network gave only $1,000 to charity.
