Jesse Jackson: Big Government is how we know we are godly

Jesse Jackson says that Medicare, Medicaid, and other big government programs is he we should measure how godly we are:

    Government is your god.

    • destroyer_of_moonbats

      Goebbles believed this in his memoirs.

    • NoToTyrants


      It is a perfect summary of Jackson’s Marxist ranting, camouflaged in Christian rhetoric.

  • 911Infidel

    I guess Jessie “Hymie Town” Jackson is just a rodeo clown. They are employed to divert the attention of a bull so that the bullrider (in this case the bullshiter) can get out of the ring.

    Let me remind the faux reverend of the words of Christ: “You are my friends if you hear my words and do what they say”. He didn’t say anything about government being a part of that “Godly” ethos.

    What a pathetic shyster Jackson is.

  • keninil

    Hope he tells this to his congregation “it’s not how much you put in when the plate is passed on Sunday, but how many government programs you take part in. “

    • Landscaper

      Is he the pastor of an actual church in which he is charge of on a daily basis? I didn’t think he was or has been in a very long time…..

      • keninil

        I really don’t think so. Just saying. He is still running Operation PUSH.

      • MLCBLOG

        He glommed onto that title early on, shortly after he used to “work with the” youth out here in San Francisco. Who knows where he got it?!

      • TinyKAHUNA

        Oh yes..he is a pastor alright…fathered an illegitimate child with one of his flocks too. How they can still call him a pastor is beyond me.

    • No kidding! Why take collections when he’s deferred “godliness” to government?

    • meyou

      Does he actually have a church?? Silly me, I thought he was “reverend” in name only (which gives us another definition of RINO)

  • Landscaper

    As they say in the movies “the jig is up.”

  • This pseudo reverend who suppose to be a messenger of God and his laws. Has sold his soul and his person to a Godless Democratic party, and has now become irrelevant. And anything he has to say on any topic is tripe and full of lies.

    • This man infuriates me. The “good” and “moral” Rev J has ensured that many of his fellow Americans who happen to be black live in poverty and have no viable family structure. How about all of the aborted black babies? ( ) Where is the outrage coming form the “good” and “moral” Rev J about that? How about all of the children without fathers? Is the “good” and “moral” Rev J going to address that? Isn’t that supposed to be his responsibility as a so-called “leader”? All the while Americans who happen to be black are suffering and wallowing in destitution, he makes stacks of greenbacks by ensuring that a great deal of Americans who happen to be black are treated like mushrooms (if you catch my drift). That’s where the “good” and “moral” Rev J’s “godly” Big Government comes into play. The people he keeps as mushrooms are virtually wards of the State (see federal government), almost guaranteeing that Democrats have a perpetual constituency of voters every election cycle. The only way Americans who happen to be black break the real “chains” (sorry Bobo Biden) that bind them is to render Rev J, Sharpie, and the many useless idiots who go along with them…IRRELEVANT and by so doing, toss them on the ash heap of history.

  • A spicy moment? I’m starting to get sick of the Democrats brushing off what happened yesterday. First of all, SOMEBODY took God and Jerusalem out of the platform, yet we still don’t know who did it and, worse, who approved it. It didn’t just happen by magic. And the more the Democrats try to belittle it, the more the Republicans will be playing that video over and over again, with a vote being taken THREE TIMES, in swing states, espcially in Florida with a large Jewish population. Let them keep minimizing it, while the Repbulicans capitalize on this major error.

    • Landscaper

      Obama did, plain and simple. They are covering his ass LS46.

  • Government “works” does NOT make one Godly “rev” Jackson. I pray you people will someday have your ears and eyes open and stop stumbling in the darkness- because Christ does not walk in darkness.

    • The problem is that he knows (presumably), but still leads his sheep to slaughter— all for money/power. His eyes are open, but he’s picked a side that does not follow the right path.

      • I agree…. but I still gotta pray for the guy. He’s leading too many blind.

  • white531

    You know, there was a time when the name Jesse Jackson actually meant something. Even if his message was not clear, America gave him a podium to express his views. Over time, he used up all the credits that the average American gave him. He became an empty suit.

    When your only claim to fame, is racism, your moment in the spotlight is brief. I don’t think there will be any footnotes in History, honoring the Reverend Jesse Jackson. On the timeline of History, I don’t think he reached the level required to be mentioned as a worthy participant.

    • toongoon

      Don’t give up on him yet, he’s still leading his flock astray.

  • NYGino

    Yes “Reverend”, I went to the U.S. Post Office today. Does that mean my sins are forgiven?

    • detectivedick

      Only if you buy those flat rate boxes.

  • bjohnson55

    The more this society leans on big government the less it leans on God. As usual Jesse Jackson has it Bass ackwards.

  • Yeah…hey Cheater…tell us how godly you were with that $500,000 house you purchased for your MISTRESS in Los Angeles??? This Preacher with no God has done nothing in his life except SHAKEDOWN COMPANIES for a Comfortable Living!! He is a BIGOT, RACIST and A FRAUD….go use your own money REVERENDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD and save your flock!!!

    • WordsFailMe

      I heard that Jezzbo was doing the little narrow-eyed, lib-bitty on FOX while his daughter was working at FOX with the employment help from Soros.

      I’d love to see the Jezzy doer and the Jezzy spawn on the same panel with Hannity. These foul miscreant Democrats, , ditch-laid by drabes, should be extermaneutered.

  • Sober_Thinking

    This man is one of the biggest losers in America. What a hypocrite. God will deal with him.

    This man is no “reverand”.

  • toongoon

    I don tink da revrent never reded da bibble.

    • You found the Cool Runnings in you, eh?!? LOL!

  • “And then will I profess to them, I never knew you, depart from me ye that work iniquity.” -Jesus Christ, circa Matthew 7:23, Geneva Bible

  • MS

    How can someone known as a reverend not understand his bible?

    Jesus, Mr. Jackson, was about free will and not group salvation by the forced “prayer” of some to save all.

    • He doesn’t understand the Bible because he doesn’t have the Holy Spirit. Liberal “pastors” who preach government programs and collective salvation don’t believe the Words of Christ when He says, Ye must be born again. They don’t have the Holy Spirit.

      • donalddt

        Amen to that, neither he nor Sharpton I believe know the Gospel of Christ, I have never heard them preach it and they acts the world is their heaven.

      • It’s been said that the devil can quote scripture. I believe that is what we are seeing in the likes of Sharpton and Jack(ass)son! They’ve learned the word, but not the meaning and now use the words, not to advance knowledge and love of God, but to advance their paychecks and a libtard anti-Christian agenda.

  • Jackass is parsing. The leftists he’s trying to cover for are, increasingly, secularized and, quite frankly, anti-Christian, for a variety of reasons. They were protesting, because just when they’d thought their political party had ‘broken free of the chains of religiousity’, this freedom and enlightenment was suddenly taken away, and the Christians’ imaginary friend was brought to prominence, again. They were booing the fact that the DNC caved to whatever pressure was applied to them to give “God” clearly insincere lip service, once more, and that a supernatural being (for those that believe) that they had no respect for was once again invading their lives.

    He’s absolutely right, though, in some things. Just not the way he’s thinking he’s right. Medicaid and Medicare are government programs, designed to insure that people in need medical help, who have less access to it, for whatever reason, are able to access it. However, his mistake, like the common uneducated leftist, is that these programs have to be provided at the federal level, when, in fact, that is the exact opposite of what is supposed to be happening. These are programs that should be no higher than State level, managed by the People, by whatever means they decide upon, be it (State) government administration, private sector, or a combination of both. This gives the People of the States more freedom, right there, to tailor those programs to their own wants and needs, as conveyed to their individual State legislatures and Executives.

    Unjust wars? Again, he’s right. The US has no business in places like Libya & Syria, for anything other than gathering intel of various types, or, at most, Special Operations. Keeping the US out of places like that is not only a good idea, but following the desires of the Founding Fathers and the Constitution.

  • NYGino

    Jesse, no kidding aside, don’t you think it’s time you stopped making a fool out of yourself?

    • I would refer you to the video posted here that shows that Democrats will support anything so long as it is perceived to be Democratic. I think it’s the video with the guy asking about “pro-choice” and interchanging different issues which involve choice.

    • The man has no concept of time as it relates to his narrow-minded world; therefore, the answer is a resounding “no”.

  • white531

    Regarding this race issue that seems to permeate almost every conversation in America these days, let me be perfectly clear, if that is even possible on such a topic. It was wrong to bring slaves to this country to pick cotton. We had a Civil War to correct that. It was one of the bloodiest wars ever fought on this planet. People died on both sides of the argument. In the end, the slaves were given freedom. I ask you this question. What did they do with that freedom? My answer is, they squandered it.

    I am not a mean person on this subject, please believe me. I was born and raised in Tennessee on a cotton farm. I have worked along side plenty of black Americans while picking our cotton. They understood hard work, at least the ones who worked on our farm. I had no lack of respect for them in the way they performed the work that had to be done. We may have been a different color, but each of us knew the job had to be done.

    I sincerely believe, that if Black Americans had been able to enter into our society, free of the intervention of the Democratic Party, more of them would be successful, beyond anything the Democratic Party could produce.

    Freedom means the same to every human being on this planet. Even the dumbest and most uneducated person on this planet desires Freedom. As human beings, we are born with this most primal urge to be free. To control our own destiny.

    It is one of the reasons that it took us so long to defeat the Indians. Because, before we came here, they were a free people and they controlled their own destiny. To them, we represented a threat to that Freedom that they had enjoyed, long before we came here.

    They fought to retain their way of life. I would have done the same thing, in their situation.
    I am part Cherokee, much the same as a lot of other people who were born in the south.

    We ran over these people, in our quest to build a new nation. What we did not realize is, there was already a nation here. There is no way to go back and correct all the wrongs. We have absorbed all the Indian nations into our culture and the ones who remain, all speak our language.

    Point of all this, is that we are not blameless. In the evolution of History, no one escapes criticism.

    When one culture wins, another loses. Just ask the Greeks. Actually, you can’t ask the Greeks, because they don’t exist anymore. You have to ask the Turks, who are the current Greeks. Greeks are a part of History

    We could suffer the same fate. Two hundred years of Freedom does not guarantee two hundred more. Obama wants to guarantee it.

    There has never been anyone on this planet who hates this country and what it stands for, more than Obama. That he is currently our President, is simply off the chart of believability. We are so close to losing this country to Communism, that I am no longer surprised of anything I read on the internet.

    I do know this. I still have my guns.

    • “I sincerely believe, that if Black Americans had been able to enter into our society, free of the intervention of the Democratic Party, more of them would be successful, beyond anything the Democratic Party could produce.”

      Excellent White531.

    • They gave themselves to government, which, in turn, squandered it for them. I am not sure when this cultural change took place, but race was not always a ubiquitous hurdle.

  • KenInMontana

    I get the impression Jackson sees himself as a modern day Pharisee, I do as well, as long as we are going with the second definition.
    This one;

    2. self-righteous or hypocritical person: a self-righteous, hypocritical, or sanctimonious person

    I’d say it fits.

  • It’s a wierd liberal version of the Hokey Pokey.



    • LOL!

  • donalddt

    This so called reverend doesn’t even know the Gospel of Christ,,, I have never never heard him or Sharpten preach the Gospel of repentance….. What does this guy know what it takes to be Godly?

  • detectivedick

    Obama saw that “In God We Trust” was on the penny’s he was pitching in the back room of the Convention. You see Obama thought that GOD was a dog whistle for the Great Obama Disaster

    • Political Armageddon awaits El Presidente. After his unsubstantial acceptance speech, his doomsday clock has been pushed to one minute before midnight.


    This is man playing God and not trusting the one true God who can save.

    These men take our wealth and say they are going to help us but they are scrawny in His sight. Leave our resources alone!! the private sector has a record of doing way better with them….and taking care of the widows and orphans and helping each other and those less fortunate.

    We really were doing better (solvent) before these guys started to “help” us and began to take our money.

  • What’s stylish yesterday can be not-so-stylish tomorrow. That’s the way the fickle leftards roll.

  • Isn’t this Rev. Jesse Jackson? I’m not a “reverend” but I’d be more inclined to take the nominee by the scruff of the neck and escort him off the stage the same way Jesus took the whip in hand and put the moneychangers out of His Father’s house. Farewell to Obama. In 2008 he deceived the greatest nation on earth (including me) and in 2012 we’re reaping the consequences of his inability to fulfill the promises of his campaign. Even that doesn’t make him “bad”. What makes him bad is the rejection of God and his failure to recognize Israel as His chosen Nation (God, not Obama to you blinded imbicile dems). And not just Obama, the “democratic” party he leads. People like him have no business at the helm of a God-fearing Christian Nation. I’m sorry for him and his family and hope he changes his course and gets them off the highway to hell he’s leading them down.

  • Rocco11

    Martin Luther King had a dream, Jesse Jackson has a scheme…

  • BikerHoop

    Rev. Jesse “Irrelevant” Jackson wouldn’t know ‘godly’ if it slapped him upside the head. This so-called “reverend ” doesn’t lead sheep, he leads jackasses.

  • Joseph ewing

    Later from Jackson…

    “Killing unborn babies – or even those who emerge alive – is how we know we are Godly.”

  • NCHokie02

    So I would just ask JJ this question. When did Jesus require or do anything by the tip of the Roman spear? Did He ever come around to the Roman leadership in the area and say “You should require that all people give to pay for the sick.” No He didn’t. He could have but He didn’t. Just because the gov’t forces us to do something doesn’t mean we are “Godly”. I don’t say where my tax dollars go. Those tax dollars that go for abortion, does that make us “Godly” Mr Jackson? If it’s not in my heart then what difference is it to me where the gov’t spends my tax dollars? Are tax-paying aethists “Godly” people Mr Jackson?

    Man this guy is a moron.

  • Rshill7

    If Martin L. King could come back and listen to Jackson, he might have to rethink his nonviolent message of grievance redress, punch this toadstool right in the lie-hole, and preach him a Holy message of truth, individual freedom, and individual responsibility.

    I don’t judge the color of Jesse’s skin. I judge the “content of his character”. What is that content? Well, if there’s anything at all there, it would have to be that of a slave ship captain with a few thousand ships under his command, all docked in major cities across this country, offering free chains to all comers, and servitude for the “small price” of their once sacred, vote.

    Black people. They’ve “come a long way baby”…from the crib to the teet. That’s just servitude of another stripe, to another set of masters. MLK had a dream. What Jesse perpetuates is morning, noon, and nightmare.

  • stage9

    liberalism is how we know a person is mentally insane.

  • If you read these comments, things are civil

    Not like liberal blogs where every other word is a FU

    So, to be fair-

    FU Jackson

  • How “godly”? More like UNgodly! What a disgrace the DNC is!

  • Funny how “one nation under gov’t” doesn’t have the same ring. OMG2012

  • It’s been said that the devil can quote scripture. I believe that is what we are seeing in the likes of Sharpton and Jack(ass)son!

  • las1

    I refuse to watch this. Scoop’ precis suffices for me. All I’ll just add is that ol’ Jesse was a bit tongue tied. He meant to say that “Medicare, Medicaid, and other big government programs is he we should measure how UNgodly we are

  • Godly? I am sick to death of this small s satan lying to Americans.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Who is Jesse Jackson and what is his job?

    • kong1967

      Lol, he’s like Obama as a community organizer. He extorts businesses and politiicians.

      I’m sure you were being facetious.

      • Army_Pilot1967

        Oh, THAT Jesse Jackson!!! And you were correct about my facetiousness…I couldn’t resist.

        • kong1967

          Lol, I thought so.

  • No wonder his son is depressed.

  • physicsnut

    Why is he so hung up on “PROGRAMS” ???? – instead of having a reasonably functioning economy. Evidently he does not mind all the Strings that go along with the Programs.

    • kong1967

      Your addition of the word “strings” was perfect. Dems want those strings. You scratch my back I’ll scratch yours. Vote for me in November. Obama is doing it with the women and college students. He wants to pay for womens’ birth control and abortions, and he wants to pay off students’ loans. Then it will be “vote for me or the Republicans will force you to pay back that loan.”

  • kong1967

    Ah, I see what he’s saying. He’s just saying that we show how much G-d is in our lives by how much government helps people. On the surface it doesn’t sound that bad because we all would like to help people. But….not through big government!!!

  • What a full blown nutcase race baiter this moron is!

  • giomerica

    Earth to liberals, progressives, communists, socialists or whatever you call yourselves. “Charity” is when, of your own free will, you give your time, money, resources, etc. to a cause that YOU see as worthy (**HINT… THIS is God’s way). Government taking your time, property, money, etc. and “redistributing” it as THEY see fit (usually to political cronies, bundlers and donors) has very little to do with God’s law.

  • Haywoodjbl

    How does this guy earn a living? Every black I know (including me) thinks he is a radical mad man and a true “pimp”. Tired old rhetoric from a man who is still living in the early 60s. PLEASE go away and let the new positive forces who happen to have a dark skin color speak for Americans regardless of color.

    • Wonderfully written and to the point. An honest and objective view on a false prophet, and a racial and divisive pimp-pseudo reverend Jesse Jackson. Jesus of Nazareth reminded the faithful on personal responsibility and the way forward when he said and I quote: ” God helps those that help themselves.”

  • James1754

    “We measure how godly we are by Medicare and Medicaid.”

    So the Reverend Jackson is now from the church of the “Holy Anointed Legislature” or perhaps the “First Church of the Self-righteous Entitlement Program”

  • Here’s to pseudo reverend Jesse Jackson and the big government Democrats…a quote from the past from one of our Founding Fathers who foresaw the problems of big government and their over reach of executive powers.
    ” If people let government decide which foods they eat and medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.”
    Thomas Jefferson

  • Susitna

    I hope he also knows how “idiotly” he is.

  • How Godly we are? Another Freudian slip. I’m thinking I would have used the expression how FAITHFUL we are.
