Civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson praised deceased anti-American Venezuela President Hugo Chavez during the delivery of his eulogy Friday in Venezuela.
“Hugo fed the hungry,” said Jackson, who ran for president twice in the 1980s. “He lifted the poor. He raised their hopes. He helped them realize their dreams. And, so, today we do mourn, because we’ve lost a lot. But we have a lot left – a stable government, an orderly transition.”
Jackson prayed that Chavez’s successor, Nicolás Maduro, would keep Venezuela’s “hopes and dreams alive, as he picks up the baton and makes a great nation greater.”
Chavez, presented Jackson with the Liberator's Award in 2005.
Jesse Jackson Praises Legacy of Chavez - Alicia Powe
Can you believe this? Now why would they even give Jesse Jackson a microphone to speak. Here he is giving a Tribute to Chavez. This is just as bad as Rodman going to NKorea. Except at least Rodman doesn't think he speaks for others. Jackson does. Plus Jackson is so desperate to get into the News it's pathetic. Wonder if Jesse paid for the trip there or was that on the House too? What a Putz.....don't ya likes how Jesse just luvs it when no one can point out the real truth to his ass. Can say whatever he wants outta his mouth, and the MSmedia will lap it up without hesitation. A Tribute.....who's next, Louis Farrakan?
