The Ignorance of Jesse Jackson

...or it could just as well be intentional prevarication in reliance of his audience's ignorance and being too lazy to check what he's saying...
Via the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler comes this absolute howler from uber race-pimp Jesse Jackson:

...instead of metropolitan areas banning guns and rural areas keeping them, the gun advocates use rural-dominated state legislatures to pre-empt any municipal laws. Chicago gets governed by Springfield; New York City constrained by Albany.

Chicago gets governed by Springfield? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over? Anyone who knows anything about the fascist state of Illinois knows that it's more or less the exact opposite, to the point that metro Chicago's statehouse delegation is in the process of trying to either run three major Illinois gun manufacturers out of business or out of Illinois with their so-called "assault weapons" ban, to the point that the state senator for the particular district in which the gunmakers are located said the State of Illinois has almost become an enemy of his district! I know that Jesse Jackson and his sordid ilk have some serious problems with the truth sometimes, to put it mildly, but I am still rather surprised at this blatant out-and-out lie! Just more proof, I guess, that their position is intellectually and morally bankrupt, but I never fail to be at least a little surprised that "gun control" is STILL ever discussed as a positive thing in what passes for polite company...or that Jesse Jackson still has any air of respectability anywhere.
