This is what we have to look forward to during the coming weeks. The AP is reporting that Ashley Todd, the 20 year old McCain campaign worker, “made up” the attack story that even included her “attacker” carving the letter “B” into her face.
On the other side, we have the Rev. Jesse Jackson pressing the issue that if Barack Obama does not win the Presidency on November 4th, pledges of civil disobedience and uprising WILL occur:
Jessie Jackson has reportedly signed an online petition pledging “civil disobedience” while other civil rights activists are calling for a government shutdown if John McCain wins the US Presidential elections on November 4th.
Calling a McCain victory “theft”, writer David Swanson tells Obama supporters, “You should immediately pick up your pre-packed bags and head straight to the White House in Washington, D.C., which we will surround and shut down until this attempt at a third illegitimate presidency is reversed.”
Jesse Jackson marched with Dr. Martin Luther King. This would not be his message! Have we learned nothing from our history, or are we destined to repeat it?
