Jesse Jackson: "Occupy Atlanta" reminds him of the Civil Rights Movement

Sometimes, I see a headline that causes me to utter an audible Scooby Doo-esque "Huhhhh?" A headline on Drudge that said Jesse Jackson compared the "Occupy Atlanta" movement to the Civil Rights Movement elicited that reaction from me.

The reason is that the only other thing I have seen of the "Occupy Atlanta" movement is when a bunch of cultish, statist, twinkle-fingered protesters (most of them white, by the way) rejected civil rights icon, Representative John Lewis, and kept him from speaking at their rally.

How cultish were they? Watch them repeat everything the moderator says as they eventually tell Lewis to take a hike. The video is 10 minutes long, but just watching the first minute or two will give you the gist:


"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free... it expects what never was, and never will be." -Thomas Jefferson
