As the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson hails the success of his fifth and final “National Day of Repudiation of Jesse Jackson” event in Los Angeles, he is looking forward to the beginning of oral arguments in his assault case against the self-described civil-rights leader.
Peterson’s rally, held outside Jackson’s Rainbow/ PUSH office, occurred Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, to “show the contrast between Dr. King’s dream and Jesse Jackson’s nightmare,” said a statement from the minister’s organization, the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny, or BOND.
The event both highlighted BOND’s accomplishments and stressed the theme “capturing the dream.” Speakers at the event blasted Jackson for his legacy of immorality and for corrupting King’s dream, BOND said. WND columnists Jane Chastain and Mychal Massie were two of the featured speakers.
Rally participants also heard from Candice Jackson of Judicial Watch, who announced information about Peterson’s lawsuit filed against Jackson.
“Oral arguments in Jesse Lee Peterson’s assault case against Jesse Jackson, et al, are set to begin on Feb. 26 at 9 a.m.,” Candice Jackson said.
Responded Peterson, “I promise you, I’m not going to cut any back room deals in my case against Jesse Jackson.”
Peterson’s lawsuit alleges the defendants, during a Dec. 10, 2001, public meeting to discuss the awarding of minority-oriented contracts by Toyota, surrounded and assaulted him, calling him a “nigger.”
“National Day of Repudiation of Jesse Jackson” rally
Speaking of this week’s rally, Peterson said, “This will be our last repudiation event. I believe it’s time for others to carry the banner on this. We’ve set our sights on others who are more relevant and doing serious damage to black families: the NAACP and the Congressional Black Caucus.”
In Peterson’s recent book, “Scam: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America,” he shows how the civil-rights establishment, led by Jackson, has made a lucrative career out of keeping racial strife alive in America.
He reveals how establishment black leaders endlessly promise solutions to the problems of America’s inner cities, but deliver only ineffective Band-Aids. From the dismal failure of the welfare system, to the farce of the slavery-reparations movement, to the problems within black churches and the hypocrisy and corruption of current black “leaders,” Peterson argues compellingly that the real crisis we face is spiritual, and that no economic solution will suffice.
