Jesse Jackson: The right demonizing Obama could lead to his assassination
The Right Scoop
February 2, 2012
Here we go again with the Left trying to say rhetoric from the Right can cause tragic violence on the Left, specifically to Obama. Built on the foundation of examples laid by Bashir of Gov. Brewer pointing her finger at Obama, Newt referring to Obama as the “food stamp president”, and Allen West saying Obama, Reid, and Pelosi should get their leftism out of America (even though he mischaracterizes it), Jackson says that angry rhetoric from the right could lead to Obama’s assassination.
And he even uses as one of his examples Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez who shot an AK-47 at the White House. According to the Washington Post, the man hated, Washington, the President, and society. But Jackson must believe he was instigated by rhetoric from the Right or something even though he was found among the Occupy movement in DC. Jackson then used the examples of President Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. both being assassinated to back up his argument. And don’t miss how he mixes the component of race in his examples.
