Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson returned to Fox News for an African American edition of “exploit the Ferguson police officer shootings to smear President Obama, Eric Holder and the #BlackLivesMatter protesters.” Host Neil Cavuto loved it.
As I’ve previously noted, Fox wasted no time using the shootings of two Ferguson police officers as fodder for its racial attacks on Obama and Holder. So it was not a huge surprise they should call on Peterson. He’s Sean Hannity’s slavery-apologist, African-American hating, misogynist buddy. You know, the one who said most blacks in Tennessee are racist, who thanks God for slavery and who thinks most women are “little whores.”
Peterson got right to racially attacking Obama. Truth was optional.
PETERSON: America has done more for this country to make amends for slavery and discrimination against blacks than any other country in the world. And we should be grateful for that. I was disappointed when Barack Obama spoke in Selma …Instead of thanking America for what they have done - 50 years later we have a black president, black Americans can move about, live anywhere they want, get any type of education that they want but yet they made it sound as though it was still 1965.
But in his Selma speech, Obama repeatedly emphasized the racial progress our country has made.
OBAMA: Because of campaigns like this, a Voting Rights Act was passed. Political and economic and social barriers came down. And the change these men and women wrought is visible here today in the presence of African Americans who run boardrooms, who sit on the bench, who serve in elected office from small towns to big cities; from the Congressional Black Caucus all the way to the Oval Office.
…Just this week, I was asked whether I thought the Department of Justice’s Ferguson report shows that, with respect to race, little has changed in this country. …But I rejected the notion that nothing’s changed. What happened in Ferguson may not be unique, but it’s no longer endemic. It’s no longer sanctioned by law or by custom. And before the Civil Rights Movement, it most surely was.
…If you think nothing’s changed in the past 50 years, ask somebody who lived through the Selma or Chicago or Los Angeles of the 1950s. …To deny this progress, this hard-won progress—our progress—would be to rob us of our own agency, our own capacity, our responsibility to do what we can to make America better.
Rather than correct Peterson, Cavuto egged him on for more. “Your message, powerful as it is, doesn’t get out to the mainstream media and to kids,” Cavuto said admiringly. “Young African Americans, for example, might hear what the president says or hear what the attorney general says and say, ‘Well, yeah, it is racism and I am a target now.' Now that’s not what they’re saying but they are saying there’s built-in bias, racial animosity in Ferguson, that it was a boiling pot for that and I don’t doubt that there were examples of that but that they take that to the next level to say this is an ongoing national, near epidemic. How do you respond to that?"
Peterson replied that the “battle” is between good and evil. You can probably guess on which side Peterson pegged Obama, Holder and the protesters.
PETERSON: So-called black leadership, the race hustlers like Obama, Eric Holder, Sharpton and others represent evil. And they can do it because most black Americans – not all, not all, not all – but most are angry and Neil, when you’re angry, it is impossible to believe the truth. Whomever causes you to become angry also controls you. And black Americans have been caused to be angry by the so-called civil rights leaders, some 50 years ago, to be honest, and they have been controlling black Americans since that time.
And the way they do it, they just look for white-on-black situations and they cry “racism” and black Americans go into a hypnotic trance and whatever these folks want them to believe, and whatever they want them to do, they get them to do it.
…Black Americans for the last 50 years have been hating their enemies and now they have become like the people that they hate. For an example, the KKK: you always hear black folks complaining about how the KKK were hanging blacks from trees and that they were burning and killing black people. Now, they are doing the same thing. We saw it in the knockout games when black folks were going around the country and killing white Americans. I’ve heard of several cases, one in Tennessee where black people killed a couple of white folks, set them on fire, so they have become just like the KKK…
That was too much even for Cavuto. He interrupted to say, “Hopefully those are isolated, small incidents.”
But that didn’t stop Cavuto from lovin’ Peterson anyway. As the discussion closed, Cavuto said, “All I say, Reverend, is why don’t we hear your point of view? I mean, with the other point of view… Fair and balanced in the media says, hear guys like you. There is another point of view. Reverend, it’s always good having you. Thank you.”
Watch it below, from the March 13 Your World.
World watches instantly on internet what goes on in Ferguson and elsewhere in the world. The news and comments posted are probably being read by nations across the world. Hence please don’t be frustrated. Imagine you were at a party and a fight broke out between family members….everyone at the party are watching and doesn’t it generate awkward feelings? As a match-stick can set forest trees on fire and char them and those amongst them, tongue has the power to set minds on fire. Hence please be wise, humble, compassionate and impartial in your judgements.
I never lived in Ferguson or other communities and my time is limited. Hence please do your research on Wikipedia and internet and use your words wisely when speaking to the authorities and reporters and commenting on internet.
Wikipedia is a good resource to educate oneself. One doesn’t need pay high tuition fees if one has no money to study law, politics, sociology etc. Just a computer and internet connection will do. (Coursera is also an excellent site for online studies)
Here are few key words to search on Wikipedia to help gain different perspectives:
It’s not possible to understand even our parents or closest kin all the time… But what keeps the bond is love. In love, there is understanding, forgiveness and mutual respect. Also, Love’s got no hate in it. It brings peace and positive ideas. It completely cleans out hatred and only love remains in one’s heart. It’s like the sugar-studded doughnut that makes a bitter coffee sweet. I do not wish nobody hates nobody for the problems though we were at the same level as them when we came out of our mother’s wombs (without malice and deceit)….I wish you understand my message of peace, love and hope. I am not affiliated with any religion; however I would say everyone who loves is born of God to make known the father’s presence amongst us. Everyone who loves cherishes life. Everyone who comes to know the value of life is for peace. And where there is peace, there is hope for the living. When there is hope every member of community strives for its prosperity.
They profit from racism in exchange for high ratings and advertising. It’s always about advertising revenue with these suits.
