Jesse Jackson plans to expand gun shop protests
Maybe he's desperate for cash this month. But it's so undignified, like Al Capone collecting protection money from lemonade stands.
Well, you know there is something going on. Its a given that he isn't taking time off from his shakedown racket because he suddenly feels the urge to do something good. I'll bet there is a connection; it just needs to be found. Speculating here, but how about a politician or two who will give a quid pro quo, maybe even a group of politicians focused on something anti-gun that they need him to whip up support, or maybe he's getting some funding from anti-gunners.

Its laughably simple. Think Ockham's Razor. I will exercist the social ineptness it takes to point this out. Jackson is a hard line racist black supremacist. He thinks this is an excellent way to 'get whitey' by drying up the legal law abiding citizen's sources of firearms. The non reverend is rich enough to have hired armed bodyguards so he thinks he will never need weaponry. You may ban me now, Dave. I have enjoyed reading and commenting here the last couple of years.

It's possible he is doing it for political reasons; either for someone else, or he may have political plans of his own.

It's also possible that he is an attention whore and Al Sharpton has been getting more press than he.

A week so far.

Does Jackson really still hold any real sway with African Americans? If Toyota just told him to get bent, what would it matter?

CCRKBA's Gottlieb is looking to stage a counter protest on that day. Not a bad idea IMHO. Check out his "alert".

Any one read the book "SHAKEDOWN" its about jessy jackson it explains alot.
Morality or Ethics are not keystones of Jessys jacksons life long lessons
however "gettin paid" is a keystone of his.
