Stokes goes full Stokes

Jackson Ward 3 City Councilman Kenneth Stokes wants the Justice Department to investigate a local gun dealer who posted a derogatory poster about Mr. Stokes and President Obama in his store.  He said the government should determine if he violated any regulations with his posters and revoke his federal firearms license if a violation occurred. He also referred to both the gun dealer and Rankin County Sheriff Bryan Bailey as a "dumb bastard".




 Gun dealer Tim Wolverton displayed the posters at a gun show held at the Mississippi Trademart last weekend.  Mr. Wolverton owns Downrange Sporting Goods on Pearl Street.

Alice Tisdale of the Jackson Advocate strongly criticized Mr. Wolverton for comparing Democrats to terrorists in a question posed to Mr. Stokes.  She chastised the media for not focusing on that language in his signs. 

Watch the complete video of Mr. Stokes here.

and now almost everyone in central Mississippi knows there's a sporting goods store in downtown Jackson on Pearl St. Stokes is only helping this guy in my opinion.

"It's too hard to tell the difference [between terrorists and democrats]."

Wow. Stay classy gun-nuts.

Never go full Stokes. Unless, of course, you're automatically set to full Stokes.

I need both of those posters. Man knows what he is talking about.

I'm sure his business is booming now. I know I'm willing to pay more for a gun from there, tried to today, but unfortunately he was sold out.

Thanks to Adams and Jefferson for the right to free speech. Even if it does protect stupid speech.

I suppose it's OK (according to Stokes) to throe ROCKS BRICKS & BOTTLES @ Police?

That darned Constitution thingy keeps the DOJ from locking up people who speak out against elected officials. Can't we be more like the old Soviet Union or Nazi Germany? where is Stalin or Hitler when you need them? Down with free speech.

Stokes used to be entertaining in an embarrassing blubbery sort of way. Now it's just flatulation.

Stokes is a bad cartoon.

Maybe he keeps getting re-elected based on the size of his head. With a melon like that you would naturally(and incorrectly) assume that there was a brain inside...

No, the melon head is empty but the stomach has never been.

Be careful what you say JJ. Kenneth Stokes will write a letter to the principle oh,I mean Justice Department.

I like the store, nice mom & pop business, knowledgeable, decent selection and prices. Guess on top of everything else the Dems have no sense of humor..

If a jackass brays in the woods and the local news is not there to record it, it's a better world we live in.....

One more term of Ds and the DOJ will be locking people up for what they think. Stokes says do it now.

"Mister" Stokes DOES realize that the 1st Amendment applies to people of ALL skin colors, right?

Right?

Scott Womack said...

The blinding intensity of Stokes' double standard is so obvious, it proves how stupid he really is. It just proves democrats don't need to be smart, just promise to give out free stuff. FSA marches on!

Anonymous said...

Remember Kenny Stokes calling for the investigation on the death of the Mayor. Who kilt da mayor?

You are assuming that Stokes knows the meaning of "double standard." The only standard he knows is "If Kennuf says it then it is the truff" and don't you forget it! By the way Kennuf, I have a pretty good supply of worn out undershirts if you need a few for wiping cloths.

I'll donate my old unwashed underwear for the cause. I actually bought my wife a pistol this morning from Tim just to stoke his business.

I hear they are soon to produce a remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, with the Jackson City Council as the little men. Guess who Dopey will be played by?

Anonymous said...

Why does the media give him any credit???? And, why do they keep putting video of him on the air????? That just inflates his ego!!! He's not smart enough to realize that everyone is laughing at him; he believes it makes him look important.

However, I am glad to see that his "stupid spouting" has increased the gun owner's business!!!!

There is a new firearm on the market. It's called "Da Stokes".
it doesn't work and you can't fire it.

Interesting...y'all recognize Stokes' idiocy but support Wolverton's idiocy as "free speech".

Wolverton is worse as he isn't just attacking those officially a part of government but any citizen who is identifies themselves as a Democrat.

Substitute photos of Bruning and Von Hindenburg for Obama and Stokes and then substitute the word Jews for Democrats and see if you get it!

And, do try to figure out if there's a difference between propaganda and free speech! While you're at , try to figure out if the difference between being a troublemaking asshole and being politically incorrect!

Unless I'm mistaken, it was Mabus and Dems who passed and signed into law the first edition of our CCW law and allowed us to keep gun in car without permits.

You're missing a few things. Democrats are not a protected class..And this is a humorous poster, not propaganda ... don't forget Stokes is inherently funny.

Tell me you've never told a joke or made a harsh criticism about Republicans-- I see much much more extreme posters on Facebook every day, liberal and conservative! Untuck your delicate panties.

What a leap to try to compare this to some nazi actions, shame on you. Guess you think it's ok to throw bricks at police cars too. Or tell your (black) constituents to do so.

It is possible to practice First and Second Amendment rights at the same time. Stokes has done more for this guy's shop than years of advertising.

"Why does the media give him any credit???? And, why do they keep putting video of him on the air?????"

Because the bulk of the media are liberal democrats, uneducated in nearly every topic they report on.

Anonymous said...

Wolverton is attempting to deny others their Second Amendment rights. THE Second Amendment says nothing about party affiliation or stupidity.

^v^ said...

Wolverton is a private citizen. Stokes is an elected official. One has taken an oath and is charged with upholding the public trust, by choice mind you, and that puts him in a different category. You have to be able to make that distinction to speak intelligently.

When Stokes tells people to throw rocks and bottles at the cops, his words carry the weight of his position as a public official, especially when he is speaking in that capacity, as he was when he made those comments.

And do not even try this 1930s Germany equivalence BS unless you are willing to hold every child of privilege who walked the streets of NY and LA last decade with "BUSH = HITLER" signs, for there are hundreds more of those than of this one guy.

I'll keep buying my guns at Van's and Academy, thank you very much...

After looking at all the ways Stokes has made a fool of himself just to get on tv it is nice to see someone tell the truth.
People should not blame Stokes for his sweating like a leaky bucket. There is an old saying that sort of fits him.

Anonymous said...

I think that most of JJ's readers understand that as unintelligent as K. Stokes is, he knows what his constituents from Ward 3 want to hear (i.e., what it takes to garner their votes), and that everything that comes out of his mouth is exactly that. So, I suppose the question that should be asked (that no one is asking) is whether there is something fundamentally wrong with the mindset of voters in Ward 3?

Anonymous said...

My dear Mr Stokes. Not long ago , you did not want gun shows selling guns that would get into ward 3. Now you are upset because a dealer at the gun show said he would not sell you one. Did you try to go and buy one from him? Which way do you want it, for them to sell guns for ward 3 or not!

Just like every democrat, he wants his cake and eats it too except he obviously gets an extra dose.

Kenny is keeping the Justice Department busy these days. #boycottjackson. ( except the gun dealer ) I am going there tomorrow to purchase my next weapon.

Anonymous said...

2:23, yes there is something fundamentally wrong with the mindset of the voters in ward 3. They are living in ward 3. That should tell you something about them.

actually it's eat his cake and have it too

Looks like he has cake eating down pretty good.

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. 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.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
