If you reside in Detroit, as I do, your radio and TV broadcast airwaves are dominated by live coverage of Rosa Parks' funeral. All other programming is pre-empted--SO WE CAN BE LECTURED BY RACISTS AND RACE MERCHANTS.
Right now, I'm listening to Louis Walcott a/k/a Louis X a/k/a Louis Farrakhan. Why is this racist loon a prominent speaker at this woman's funeral? If he had it his way, Catholics and other Christians, Jews, Whites, Asians, Gays, Arabs, and anyone not Black Muslim would not be riding in the back of the bus. They'd be DEAD.
Is Rosa Parks' funeral the place for Racist-in-Chief Louis X to spout off against "The Military-Industrial Complex," to tell Christians that their "Church must not dirty the garment"? Huh? The dirtiest thing in that room is the Black Muslim "leader" speaking those words--followed by the gushing applause and cheers of all the mindless boobs filling the audience. Christians don't need to be lectured by Louis X about dirtying anything.
Sickening. Today, all of us who don't fit Farrakhan's sick, narrow mold are sitting in the back of the bus.
Then there's Jesse "Hymietown" Jackson and Weird Al "Mass Murder at Freddie's Fashion Mart" Sharpton. Thankfully, I missed their speeches. I'm sure they were par for the course.
But I just loved the scene toward the opening of the funeral ceremony--during which Jesse Jackson had a Bill-Clinton-at-Ron-Brown's-funeral moment (speaking of Slick Willie, he was there, too). The cameras focused on Jesse Jackson and the man next to him was either asleep or reading something. Jesse Jackson appeared on the screen nudging the guy awake, elbowing him several times. Because that's what this is all about. It's not a funeral. It's a propaganda fest and media event combo meal.
Speaking of meals, some guy in a collar is now talking about cheese, tomato, mayonnaise, and mustard sandwiches in his Parks "eulogy." Gee, and I thought it was a funeral. Instead, it's the Rosa Parks Culinary Institute.
Or, counting Farrakhan, Sharpton, and Jackson--and the rest of the audience cheering them--its the Museum of Racists & Fools.
Shame on Rosa Parks' relatives for inviting these sickos and giving them this forum.
**UPDATE: 5:33pm--Well, I was wrong. I didn't miss Jesse the Blowhard's speech, after all. Damn. He's still spouting off at this time (the funeral started at 12am ET or earlier). He just said: "Thomas Jefferson democracy has no export value on the international market." Really? I suppose Jesse Jackson/Louis Farrakhan/Al Sharpton kleptocracy does have export value. Unfortunately.
