Well, I am tempted to just say that if Jesse Jackson says Hillary Clinton should be pardoned...that in itself is probably a good reason to keep
digging...but let's have a look at the exact reasons he says she should be given a free pass.
Stopping short of saying Clinton did anything wrong, Jackson told a large crowd of University of Michigan students, faculty and administrators
gathered at daylong celebration of his career that Obama should short-circuit President-elect Donald Trump's promised attempt to prosecute Hillary
Clinton for use of a private e-mail server.
"It would be a monumental moral mistake to pursue the indictment of Hillary Clinton," Jackson said. He said issuing the pardon could help
heal the nation, like Ford's pardon of Nixon did.
What set of moral standards or moral code, dear Reverend, would investigating alleged criminal behaviour (let's not forget the ongoing Clinton
Foundation corruption probe) by one of the nation's highest ranking "public servants", and then indicting if it is deemed that criminal charges are
waranted...would this violate?
Under what system of morality is it preferable to turn a blind eye to "alleged" rampant criminal betrayal of the public trust, and putting the
nation's security at risk for personal convenience and gain? Please do tell...
"Hillary Clinton has not been tried, but there are those who want to drag her for the next three years. It will not stop until they find a
reason to put her in jail. That would be a travesty."
Let me get this straight. As so many of her followers have crowed for so long...she is innocent of any wrongdoing, because she has not been charged
or convicted of any of the crimes she is suspected of having committed (fair enough in one sense...innocent until proven guilty). And/but, according
to Jackson, if eventually she is tried and found to be guilty of criminal offences it would be a "travesty" for her to have to actually suffer a
consequence for her misdeeds.
So, she is innocent under the law now, but if she were to be found guilty, she should not be punished. Why?
Because she came within a hair of being able to pardon herself?
Because she is a Democrat, and she will no longer be shielded from prosecution by a Democratic Administration?
Because if they continue to pick at this scab...sooner or later the full extent, height, width and breadth of the corruption will become public
knowledge - and will likely reach all the way to the White House and beyond?
Under what system of justice, is it a "travesty" to punish high Government officials who use their public offices for personal profit, and/or lie to
Congress and the American people, and/or destroy files and documents that are under a Congressional Subpoena - to send a message to all politicians to
follow, that this behaviour will not be tolerated, and will be punished?
Students "are growing up in an America that is in an identity crisis," Jackson said. "These demonstrations are born out of fear. Fear that
the Klan will ride again. Fear that violence (against minorities) is coming back.
Seriously Jessie, people are protesting the election of a Republican President because they fear that the KKK (an organization created by the
Democratic Party) will ride again?
I realize that he makes his living playing the race card, and pitting African Americans against non-African Americans. But, this KKK stuff is really
very weak...and if he truly wants to make students feel safe and secure, he ought to knock off telling scary stories.
Jeese Jackson...Pardons for Criminals is
the Moral Way...and Run, Here Comes the KKK!
