Jesse Jackson Says Brewer Confrontation with Obama Was Racist (Video)

On Wednesday Barack Obama ambushed Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ) at the Phoenix airport. But, to Obama’s surprise, the governor did not cower and lashed back at the thin-skinned president.

This weekend Jesse Jackson told supporters that Governor Jan Brewer’s behavior was racist.
Of course it was, Jesse.

Jesse Jackson was not alone
The Politico has more on the incident:

Reaction to the Jan Brewer encounter is still bubbling, with some black commentators now suggesting the image of the Arizona governor wagging her finger at the President of the United States has touched a nerve in the African American community.

On MSNBC Thursday, Al Sharpton posited that Brewer’s treatment of President Obama was another example of disrespect in a list of many for the nation’s first black president. His guest, Sirius XM host Joe Madison, said such incidents show that there are people “who cannot stand the fact that this is an African-American who is now one of the most powerful individuals on the planet,” Mediaite reported.

An NAACP official went a few steps further in an interview with POLITICO Friday, saying the tiff played on age-old and discriminatory stereotypes of whites being superior to blacks. Hilary O. Shelton, senior vice president for advocacy and policy at the NAACP, said he was particularly disturbed by Brewer telling reporters afterward that she “felt a bit threatened if you will, in the attitude that he had.”

“What were you afraid he would do, steal your purse?” Shelton said.

Brewer has said she was taken aback when the president brought up the way she wrote about him in a recent book. She said when she met Obama on the tarmac, she asked for a meeting and he responded that she hadn’t treated him very cordially in the book, in which she wrote that the president was “patronizing” during a White House meeting.

Gee, who would have seen this coming?

  • ar05075

    Doesn’t this mumbling moron ever get tired of making a fool of himself???

  • Tom63010

    Let’s see Brewer’s account was that Obama started the confrontation, so…….doesn’t that mean since Brewer is a woman that Obama is a sexist and because she is white and he is black that is racist? So isn’t Obama a sexist racist? Oh by the way he is a Marxist also.

  • Sara B

    Just who is disrespecting whom? Obama is suing Gov. Brewer’s state over immigration enforcement, allowing his AG to weaponize the deadly Mexican drug cartels and working to oust Sheriff Joe Arpaio by undermining anything he does to keep Maricopa County safe. Yet he dares to get off Air Force One and tear into Brewer about a book published a year earlier. This president is a disgrace! It has nothing to do with race.

    Judas Goat Jackson does it again. Sure wouldn’t want to be in his shoes when he has to answer for what he’s done in this life.

  • SeniorD

    Must be the “Rev” isn’t happy with the lack of national face time during this campaign.

  • No Man

    Remember in November.

    All the pharaoh’s (Obama) horses’ asses and racial racketeers:

    It ain’t racist when it’s true.

    I’m sick of being taxed and punished for 400 years of genocide and racism.

    What I don’t understand is why Chinese and Arab kids, who don’t get into UC/Berkeley or Harvard because they need to meet their blacks quotas, also have get $crewed for 400 years of racism.

    PS: I am not 400 years old.

    Jesse Jackson said something? Yawn.

    Ho-hum … projection once again from the NAACP and Jackson.

  • Blackbird

    When you are as dull as a bag of hammers everything looks like a nail. If you gave liberals the option of entering paradise with pure true equality and no bias or racism they would shed blood to prevent people from crossing over that river, because without a victim they have nothing.

  • Charlie

    Is that all you got Jesse?

  • jim bob

    How do you know when the Rev is calling somebody a racist? His lips are moving.

  • Big Al

    yup. right on time one of the justice brothers arrives on the scene – can the other be far behind?

  • jorgen

    “What were you afraid he would do, steal your purse?” Shelton said.

    Now she mentions it: that is what all Democrats do.

  • RedBeard

    If Jesse “Never Had a Job” Jackson says it’s racism, we can be guaranteed that it isn’t. His stopped clock isn’t even right twice a day, since he tore the hands off long ago.

    Sad that the phony racism canard is all the leftie cretins have left to use in their defense of The One.

  • apodoca

    The irony of this all is that Obama was raised by his white relatives who must ave told him no at some point in time. I guess the spoke to his white half. If I were Brewer, I’d tell ’em I wasn’t talking to Barack the Magic Negro. I was talking to Barack the Thin-Skinned White Boy.

  • Rock

    Hey Jesse
    “there are people “who cannot stand the fact that this is an African-American who is now one of the most powerful individuals on the planet,”

    Not really, but,
    “there are people “who cannot stand the fact that this African-American President is a GD Socialist,”

    Get over yourself you raciest fool.

  • Clever Moniker

    What else is he going to say? He owes his entire career to racial disharmony, and has a vested interest in perpetuating it.

  • Joe College

    It’s not just racist. It’s sexist, too. Not only is Obama weird around white people, but he thinks he absolutely owns white women.
