Skip to comments.Rev. Jesse Jackson calls for a ‘major strike’ after Michigan right-to-work laws pass
Posted on 12/11/2012 6:45:10 PM PST by Justaham
On MSNBC this afternoon, Rev. Jesse Jackson called for workers across the nation to hold a major one day strike in protest of the new right-to-work laws that passed in Michigan today.
I never thought it would go this far north, a disappointed Jackson said about the right-to-work movement. And, yet, these workers in this state must fight back and draw a line in the sand.
Jackson called for a major strike, and a major march on Washington.
Its time for a massive, dissident, direct action to bring about the ship in the flow of the wind, he added.

Why is Jesse so upset? He never worked a day in his life.
Right to work is going to interfere with Jackson’s ability to pay out mistresses.
Oh, how he wants to be relevant. Someone please tell him that he’s yesterday’s news.
“Its time for a massive, dissident, direct action to bring about the ship in the flow of the wind, he added.”
Sounds like ole Jesse got a hold of a bad bean burrito!
“Major march on Washington” so they can all shake hands with their boss in the White House?
Perhaps Mr. Jackson’s time would be better spent assisting his son.
An enterprising person with organizational skills should organize the unemployed.
Then offer the services of the ‘non-union’ to employers. Terms are simple. Give us the jobs at the rate without all the union costs attached.
Then when unions strike, replace the entire workforce wholesale.
I had the same thought. What a deadbeat father.
“What do we want?”
“When do want it?”
60% said NOW... 40% said NEVER
Yes! A “national strike”! Why stop there, Je$$e?
Workers of the world, UNITE! It worked ^so well^ in the 1920s.
FR seems to be the only site working for me right now
What's next? An American Spring?
Here come Jesse getting another 15 vminutes after his son had to quit the Congress in disgrace.
Here we have this race baiting POS who never worked a day in his life telling workers to strike.
This guy is a joke, a blight on the human race,mush mouthed POS needs to pay his child support for his illegitimate Child and get lost somewhere.
A preacher with no Church.A man who has spent his life leeching on the poor stupid blacks he pretends to protect.
Lil' Jesse is just parroting the lines of his mentor, the "Reverend Doctor" Martin Luther (womanizer/plagiarist) King who uttered these words, most of which are outright lies:
In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as right to work. It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights. Its purpose is to destroy labor unions and the freedom of collective bargaining by which unions have improved wages and working conditions of everyone. Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer and there are no civil rights. We do not intend to let them do this to us. We demand this fraud be stopped. Our weapon is our vote.
So much for a freedom fighter. As was the case with MLK, "Reverend" Jackson seeks the comfort of a slavemaster in the form of a Big Labor boss.
And, Harry Belafonte (lifetime commie) has advocated on national TV (yeah MSNBC) for obama to imprison tea party people (”really what more do they want... obama has a mandate, and they do not— “all that is neede is for obama to act as a 3rd world dictator and put these people in prison”)
DAY—O, daylight come and me wan’ go home. Wonder if both of them, Jesse and Harry B. have schizophrenia or bipolar (like Jackson, Jr.)
Another self-absorbed, extortionist racketeer, delusional marxist, adulterer, and totally useless race-baiting Chicago turd.
Did I miss anything?
Oh Jesse? Did you really cradle Dr. King’s head while he was dying? Your first major lie and you haven’t stopped since.
Oh, about your resident Foreign Affairs advisor and KGB agent of influence Jack O’Dell , aka John Vesey, aka Hunter Pitts O’Dell. The FBI told Dr. King about O’Dell and another KGB agent and King advisor Stanley Levison. Guess you weren’t at the meeting or you didn’t want to listen.
About that trip to Syria in 1983. Who arranged it? Lot’s of communist sympathizers on your trip list. How do you explain that?
You’ve got a lot of explaining to do to the American people.
“Perhaps Mr. Jacksons time would be better spent assisting his son.”
Junior is a chip off the old block. I’d say the old man “assisted” him too much already, and that might be why Junior is in the mess he’s in.
Yep. Nothing in this law, that I have read, stops people fro unionizing or joining a union voluntarily, it does not stop collective bargaining, it does not do anything the left claims
It simply makes joining a union voluntarily instead of forced.
This indeed will get the economy rolling, the very people he should be helping he is cutting them short. Myoptic leadership.
go ahead. There are plenty of unemployed who would take your worthless places.
Says the windbag.
Good call Rev. In the meantime, what are you going to do about the right to work laws?
’Its time for a massive, dissident, direct action to bring about the ship in the flow of the wind,’ he added.”
As ye sow, so shall ye reap. It’s a whirlwind, jess. Reap that.
He’s upset because others have a right to work now. He needs to go home and take care of his bipolar son and stay out of the affairs of others. Going mental his son still has a wayward father. Nothing will lasso him in.
He must be finished destroying someone else’s son in Florida. At 71, he’s still hell bent on being an instigator.
JJ. Is anti-choice
FR is a right to work site. ;)
Id say the old man assisted him too much already, and that might be why Junior is in the mess hes in.
Go ahead and strike in right to work states. The employers will just hire replacement workers lol
“Why is Jesse so upset? He never worked a day in his life.”
A reverend with no church, a politician who never held office and the SOB is a multi millionaire. Go figure. Pimping pays I guess
When those who have been living large at the expense of others find out that Taxpayers are saying "no more free rides", we can expect all Hell to break loose. Unions, subsidized by Taxpayers, and money-laundering Dues to the DNC has grown to where they are over-paid/under-producing parasites, and now they are realizing that people are tired of their extortion and lack of responsible performance.
“Here come Jesse getting another 15 vminutes after his son had to quit the Congress in disgrace.”
How do you figure that? He won re-election without campaigning, while in detox, and even if he goes to jail will be set for life afterwards. What a great country, what a great family!!!
Yep. We have to stop the enslavement of people to unions and governments
In our glorious fight for civil rights, we must guard against being fooled by false slogans, such as right to work. It is a law to rob us of our civil rights and job rights.... Wherever these laws have been passed, wages are lower, job opportunities are fewer....
And the students will have to pay attention in economics class ;)
Yeah, Jesse, I’m sure a whole slew of illegal strikes across the nation will engender a whole passel of sympathy for unions.
Exactly...He may be able to help his son but these union thugs are beyond help.
Jesse, you have family members and Mistresses that need you. Go home!
The cameras, where are the cameras he shouted. What a phony pos.
Jesse Jackson’s constituents who voted for him would vote for a portable toilet, if it were painted black and had a D on the door.
Michigan voters elected all three branches of government to be Republican. Therefore, they must have a larger mandate to implement Republican policy in Michigan than even the Democrats claim to have in implementing Democrat/Marxist policy in Washington.
Jesse is the biggest union boss who exists. Just as with the union business managers, executive boards, and local officers, Jesse's income is dependent on the masses below him. Less peons, less income.......
The Democrat Godfather, either your brains or your signature will be on that Union Contract.
Doesn’t Jesse have his own state or Chicago to pick on? Go away, JJ, Michigan is none of your business.
Bring it on, bitch.
