Skip to comments.(Jesse) Jackson: Late treatment causes man to die from Ebola
Posted on 10/09/2014 4:28:04 AM PDT by Zakeet
The Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. marked his 73rd birthday Wednesday by criticizing the medical care of the first person to die of the Ebola virus in the U.S., contending he initially got substandard care due to his lack of health insurance.
Thomas Eric Duncan, 42, died in Dallas Wednesday, a day after Jackson had been there to meet with Duncans family and offer assistance, Jackson told students during an assembly at Farragut Career Academy in Chicago.
Because he got late treatment, this morning he died, Jackson said.
He pointed out that whites, who have been treated for the virus in the U.S., were saved from death.
People who are poor and dont have heath insurance must have the same rights as everybody else.
He told the students he planned to travel back to Dallas to assist the Duncan family.

Jackson loves playing with fire. Sooner or later he’s going to get burned.
"He told us he was from Liberia, not Africa.."
Jesse Jackson should be in prison. He HAS to go to prison.
Its disputable but you know you gotta shakedown Da Man.
After all, if he got Ebola, it was racism and its time to pay up.
Jackson is a medical expert now. I had no idea.
His death was caused by his lies.
Posted Duncan should have been tried and executed or just allowed to die for what he did. I still maintain that. No treatment should have been given to that man at all. Got flamed by exDemMom. She shouldn't have done that either. Race has nothing to do with any of this. It has become a battle between good and raw evil.
Jesse Jackson must go to prison before he can die of natural causes.
I wasn't aware that even people in Africa had to enroll in obamacare.
I'm not sure if jackson is aware of this, but, duncan DID receive treatment IN a hospital. If duncan had not lied initially, he would have received better treatment.
Do we know duncan's income? Apparently he worked for Fedex. I don't think that puts him in the "poor" category.
..’assist’ the Duncan family
Probably to ‘assist’ them in filling out forms granting him half of the cash they receive after suing.
Oh really? No one in this country is allowed to die for lack of ability to pay.
My entire hospital bill was waived to charity care since I had a heart attack and needed a stent to save my life.
Jesse Jackson thinks being poor in America is a death sentence. The truth is in other less civilized parts of the world, high quality sanitary medical care often isn’t available at all.
Like in Africa.
I've also read that the US is one of a very few countries that receives a significant number of travelers from west Africa that hasn't shut down flights. Obama's fault, again.
The question is not just why was an Ebola infected African allowed into our country (posing massive costs and risk); the real question is why was his Liberian family here in the first place. What possible benefit to the indigenous White Americans came from allowing these Africans to settle here?
Clearly, you weren't paying attention in your white-guilt indoctrination sessions. Africa is poor and backward because Whitey has been oppressing them and keeping them down, pretty much forever (just ask Louis Farrakhan). You see, Europe and America aren't successful because of anything like laws, property rights, morality, etc. No, it is only because we've taken everything from Africa, leaving them with nothing.
We did the same thing in the American southwest. Look at all that we took from the Mexicans. All the roads, the power grid, arable land, sanitation... Wait, what? The southwest was an empty desert before Europeans got there?! Now I'm confused.
Was he even a US citizen?
He still got treated for free.
This is the most generous and humane country on earth. Jackson is a scab on it.
You meannnn....Whitey, erh, Crackuh made regular and equal laws of personal and property rights as well enabling commerce to exist and thrive as a matter personal choice and no restraint?
That, that’s disgusting. ..
How many of us can afford that bill?
I'm sure jackasson can but not us.
You have to hand it to him, he sure knows how to exploit his mentally challenged believers.
How ugly does this have to get to cause some blow back? Are we there yet?
He’s a murderer.
Burn in hell...
(Can’t wish him dead...)
