Jesse Jackson: Un-American

Yep, that's right. Isn't it "un-American" to say that someone is not "really (insert race/ethnicity)" merely because they disagree with you? Isn't that like saying that someone is "un-American" because they disagree with the Iraq War? Or someone is "un-American" because they don't agree with Barack Obama's [economy-killing] agenda?

Sure is. Yet here is race-hustler extraordinaire Jackson doing just that:

The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Wednesday night criticized Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.) for voting against the Democrats’ signature healthcare bill. “We even have blacks voting against the healthcare bill,” Jackson said at a reception Wednesday night. “You can’t vote against healthcare and call yourself a black man.”

What if a white guy had said "You can't vote for Barack Obama and call yourself a white man"? Or, what if a Latino had said "You can't be against giving amnesty to illegal aliens and call yourself Hispanic"? What if an Asian said "You can't be against Red China and call yourself Oriental"?

Jackson has zero credibility anymore. He should be tossed into the dust-bin of history along with many other race-based entities.
