Lamumba compares Whitwell to Bilbo (video)

You read that right. Jackson City Councilman Chokwe Lamumba compared fellow Councilman Quentin Whitwell to racist former Mississippi Governor Theodore Bilbo at a meeting today.

The Jackson City Council met this morning to discuss a permit application Occupy Jackson. Occupy Jackson wants to stay in Smith Park until December 26, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The permit division rejected the application. The group appealed to the council. The council ignored the recommendation and referred the appeal to the planning committee. The committee meets at 1:00 PM tomorrow and will work on a possible compromise.

The exchange between the two councilman is in the video posted below. Councilman Tony Yarber presided over the meeting and talked over Mr. Whitwell's objections, ordering him to be quiet. Just watch. The Bilbo reference is at 4:48.

By the way, I just checked the websites of the local tv stations and newspapers. Not one single mention of the Bilbo comments. Not one.

So now we know that Lumumba is as warped in his thinking as those who those with whom they disagree pedophiles.

Was there a soap shortage in MS that I missed? There must have been as clearly too many mothers didn't want to waste soap washing out their children's mouths. So now those children are just foul mouthed adults.

Ok... Posted my comment before even reading 6:51 comment. Funny we chose some of the same verbage.

Lamumba does not make the issue of race relations any better. He is as hateful and disgusting as a member of the KKK. Where he really messes up, he accuses EVERY white person of racism without anything to back it up. He is not interested in making thinks better.

If I looked like a lightly tanned Jed Clampett,
I would probably be bitter at all White people as well .
... Hispanics and Asianss too.

look up and educate yourselves on "the peoples assembly of ward 2" and "the malcolm x grassroots movement"... I think chockwe started both local chapters or he could just be a member.. look up those and tell me if Chockwe wants to make race relations better

Oops, I misspelled Asians.

Anyway, the citizens voted for this guy
and they are getting their monies worth out
of ignorance. I wonder what the stats reflect about the number of business that leave Jackson each week.

How much has the rent dropped at the King Edward and Standard Life apartments ?

Up-Chuck Lumumbooty can go rotten in hell. Thats all I have to say.

Kudos to Whitwell for putting the rocks in his pants today. If only we could get him as strident about the reckless enslavement of Jackson's dwindling roster of taxpayers by the debt fueled spending binge downtown.

KF why was Yarber officiating today?

Lumumba really is a bigot. He really is. I think many black people are angry about racism and the general state of affairs for black people in this country. They are angry and frustrated- but they are not hateful. They see their people struggling and feel the weight of our history on their shoulders, and they want something to change for the better for their children.

Chokwe Lumumba is as hateful and racist as David Duke ever thought about being. I refuse to think that most black folks think the way he does.

If I am wrong then there is not a future for Hinds County. People with sense (white or black) will leave, and this city will make Detroit look like a boom town.

You're right 8:20

Many were impressed with the unexpected display of testosterone from Whitwell today.

Let's hope that such opposition to goofy ass Choke-way "Blank Panther" ignorance will continue from the good Councilman during the remainder of his political career.

Chris said...

Maybe KF or Crowley could do an expose' on Republic of New Afrika movement and Chocolate Lamumbler's, Bennie Thompson's involvement

Anonymous said...

What 8:55 said. Choke-um-whitey Lambada and his ilk are making sure that I think three times before spending money in Jackson. I deplore racism on either side and get tired of being labeled a hateful racist because I am white. Chokeum needs to look in the mirror if he wants to see racism at it's KKK level finest.

Intentionally mis-spelling the man's name is childish and immature. Just because you disagree with him is no reason to make fun of his name. So please, refer to the councilman by his proper name: Edwin Taliaferro.

8:55 if blacks really cared about their kids they would speak up with stokes renames a street with money that could have been used to keep another brother out of Parchman but they sit silent... most reasonable black folk sit silent on most legit issues facing their community.. but we will march the capitol if a white person looks at us the wrong way

Does he not realize that he has white folk in his wood pile?

Anonymous said...

Where and who are these White people in his wood pile?

Anonymous said...

Why is Whitwell posturing so? Who cares if the brats occupy Jackson? The ONLY thing they accomplish is when Whitwell and people like him give them publicity. Just let it go for crying out loud.

It weren't Chokewe's woodpile. It were his momma's.

The fact is he appears to be of mixed race just as there are more than a few white racists that also appear to be of mixed race. That's one of the reasons racism is so ridiculous.
Many of the racists around here would likely find relatives of the other race in their family tree if not in their genetic makeup.
It causes one to suspect the fear factor in their racism.

It's like Barrett-Simon said. If the Council sets a new precedent by allowing the Occupy Jackson children to occupy Smith Park 24/7, they cannot deny other groups. Who wants to see a KKK encampment downtown? How about a Black Panther one? Maybe Lumumba has one planned and is using the useful idiots of the Occupy Jackson group to make that possible. Who knows? Either way, it would be setting a new precedent.

Anderson said...

the few reasonable blacks

As opposed to, say, the reasonable whites running for the GOP nomination?

Reasonable people of *any* color are in short supply.

Moreover, reasonable people are usually too reasonable to want to splash in the mud of politics.

Anderson said...

Who wants to see a KKK encampment downtown?

Chokwe Lumumba, for one.

Anonymous said...

Gee, Anderson, how positively insightful of you to help make my point. Got any more obvious things to point out?

Anderson said...

10:02, I'm sorry you think I can distinguish which "Anonymous" you are, but your handle is not quite so original as you suppose.

From 10.000 ft said...

In the end I see the state revoking the cities charter and running the center inclusive of belhaven heights as a state controlled district. Belhaven would become it's own city and possible include Fondren and the UMC. Northeast jackson becomes a city as well with it's municiple center at the new District, which means it might actually get built.

West Jackson becomes West Jackson like it almost did before the civel war, it's own city. It could take in South "J" but it too could become it's own.

Anonymous said...

8:43 and 10:02 here. Assuming that you really are "Anderson" and not flying under false colors, I'm sorry that I thought, momentarily, that you were smart enough to distinguish which anonymous I was as well. Unfortunately for us both, you're not nearly as clever as you suppose.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
