Jesse Jackson admitted he recently fathered a child out of wedlock.
I don’t know, I’m really not a big fan of Jesse Jackson at all. Mostly because he seems more interested in publicity than in solutions. There was this one time he debated Dinesh D’Souza, who’s this super conservative think-tank type of guy, and Jackson just got worked. Because D’Souza, even if you disagreed with him, had facts and statistics to back up his claims. But Jackson was just interested in the sound bite. The impression one gets is that Jackson just likes to make speeches. He doesn’t think arguments through, nor can he logically back them up. It’s about publicity, not solutions.
And then this hypocrisy. What bothers me most is that his Rainbow Coalition’s web page features a prominent picture of Jackson’s face next to the words, “January 15-20, 2001 — A Week of Moral Outrage,” a protest tied to the inauguration of Bush as president, according to CNN.
I’m all about grace, but I’m all against hypocrisy.
