12. He ran in '84 and '88

'88 was the year he won seven primaries (notably Michigan, where I volunteered). He won a few in '84 as well but was more of a longshot then.

He did not run in '92 and so was not pitted against Clinton.

27. Jesse Jackson was the reason the DNC changed delegate rules.

Jesse Jackson should've been the first black VP and then first black President had he and Gary Hart got a fair share of the delegates at the 1984 convention. He got 21% of the vote but only got 8% of the delegates. It was a disgrace. Between he and Gary Hart they had almost 3 million more votes.

to do their bidding in the Senate.

13. Jesse Jackson among 39 arrested at sit-in at Sinema's office


JONATHAN J. COOPER

PHOENIX (AP) — Civil rights leaders, including the Revs. Jesse Jackson and William Barber, were among 39 people arrested Monday after refusing to leave the Phoenix office of Democratic U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who has faced unrelenting pressure from liberal activists over her opposition to ending the filibuster to pass voting rights legislation.

Jackson, one of the nation's most prominent civil rights leaders, said the U.S. is in a “civilization crisis” with “battle lines drawn," and he urged activists to fight nonviolently for their rights.

“The power’s in you, the people,” Jackson said.

17. I hope others will do the same.

Protest and pressure senators until it hurts.. meaning
hurts them enough that they will finally do the right
thing.

20. If anyone deserves a peace prize, surely Rev Jesse Jackson does. I got to pass the time of ...

... day with him once for about ten minutes, one on one, in the kitchen of the Rainbow Coalition house in Chicago. Definitely felt I was in the presence of someone with good energy.

We were catering an event, and I was packing up in the kitchen. He had arrived late, and I offered to fix a plate for him. Can't remember what we said except it was light, and I couldn't believe it was him.

21. I am so confused.



Here we have a sitting Democratic Senator...key word "Democratic".

And then we have a non-elected "Reverend"...(whatever that is...)

Whom to side with in this situation?

Let's review the last couple days here...

We have a giant thread on how evil Eric Clapton is because of his drunken racist remarks from the 70's...

Do we apply the same standard to Mr. Jackson and the whole "Hymie" and Hymietown" remarks from the '80's.?

Do we now think Mr. Jackson is as evil as Mr. Clapton and should not be forgiven for his remarks?

If not - why not? If so - why so?

It's interesting the dynamics of this place at times.

26. Please don't compare vaxhole Clapton to Rev. Jackson.




There are no changes to the dynamics.

Not for 53 years.

28. Sigh..reading comprehension is important.



I did not compare Mr. Jackson to Mr. Clapton.

I compared the reaction HERE to the 2 stories...

I wish more posters would use their logic and intellect instead of letting their emotions dictate what they post...

We might actually get somewhere...

But then again, logic and truth are not important here... there was a time when it was - I miss those days.

They're just trying to spread around their spammy signature as much as they can to point as many DUers as they can to their shady GoFundMe.
