Antar throws his hat into the ring.

Antar Lumumba announced his candidacy for Mayor of Jackson yesterday at City Hall.  Here is the video of his announcement. 

If someone has a better quality video, please feel free to send it and it will be posted.

Does he want to establish the Republic of New Africa and secede from the Union like his Dad did?

This could be good. Jackson has to be driven completely into the ground before anyone can come in and rebuild it. If Jackson voters are smart, they'll pick Lumumba or someone like him and get it over with. The current "death by a thousand cuts" strategy will never result in the turnaround that Jackson needs. Better to get it over with quickly, bankruptcy, state conservatorship, and all.

A lot is said in a name - Juniors father was born and raised in Detroit and his birth name was Edwin Finley Taliaferro. He became heavily involved in hard leftist black politics (communism) in the 60's. He changed his name to Chokwe (after a tribe in the Congo) and Lumumba (after Patrice Lumumba a Soviet aligned communist leader in the Congo (DRC)). His politics mirrored that of his new namesake. So does his son's.

Anybody have a positive id on the white devils in attendance?

Sadly, his dad was the best mayor we have had since the turn of the century. That should tell you a lot about how we got to where we are.

1:55 - best Mayor we have had? He is the one who raised the current budget by 40% without the tax revenue to support it. Now Yarber and company are screwed. Not sure he would have done much better without inheriting the Lumumba legacy, but it sure didn't help him. Talk about out of touch with reality!

One thing electing Junior will do...guarantee the city will go into a legislated receivership.

1231 is right. Mumble will finish the job of destroying Jackson.

@12:31, I like it. Let's just rip the bandaid off. Get this over with.

Hopefully the airport bill was just a warmup for the main event.

By what measures?

Anonymous said...

1:55....have to agree. the bar for that comparison is very low. Johnson, Melton, Yarber and Lumumba. Its too late at this point to reverse that damage those 4 have done.

Looking at the film this morning, I saw that one of the persons at the event was former State Rep. John Reeves, who was in full double-breasted glory standing to the left of the candidate. Why is he on this team?

Antar faces the same dismal prospect that probably killed his father-a critically shrinking tax base and a constant demand for city services and maintenance. The kind of quasi-socialist politics that his father wanted to install is not unworkable, perhaps in a more affluent and educated community, not in Jackson. Jackson needs bootstrap help for a largely beaten down (economically) poorly educated, and politically unsophisticated community, not just socialist political theory from radical college professors who would love to find a city for their utopian experiments.

1:55 - Best Mayor we have had? Based on his half year in office? Other than increasing the budget, leading to where we are now, what else did he do? Granted, was not nearly as bad as expected, but didn't see anything particularly to brag about either.

The time is right for Mr. Stokes to run. He might not resonate with the silver spoon crowd, but he understands the challenges that face the majority of Jackson's citizens. You may not like the messenger, but he's been right on just about everything he's said lately - especially the police chases.

Anonymous said...

Stokes was right on about that Whataburger billboard. The city should let them spruce it up. I don't often agree with Stokes, but on matters of fast food I will defer to his expertise 99% of the time.

Enoch for Mayor. Jackson deserves him.

Priester is the only chance this town has....because he sees the writing on the wall, knows his limitations, and doesn't seem too proud to ask for help. Unfortunately, Priester is a little too articulate for the commoner to back. We'll likely end up with someone named Tyrone or Demetrius who has zero business acumen, but who looks good in a bow tie. Jesus!! Lord, help us!!

None of it matters. All they do is take turns running an employment office.

By the time this election take place, my family and I will live at least 500 mile from all this mess and never look back for we may turn to salt.

As I see the Lumumba legacy, knowing he had a limited time left due to ailing health and boosted by his tremendous support from the entitlement class, the elder Lumumba spent most of his initial time in office engaged in a charm offensive to convince his sworn enemies (aka “whitey”) and his skeptics that he was more pragmatic and diplomatic a leader than his reputation suggested. This was critical in getting the 1% initiative and the hike in water sewer fees passed by Jackson voters. But at his heart he was a typical tax-and-spend liberal with a separatist agenda and socialist bent that comrade Bernie Sanders would love. With the tax and fee hikes out of the way, signs were pointing to him revealing and implementing more of his true radical agenda. Alas, he got called away before he could implement his plans. Yarber may have inherited his budget but he had time to make corrections in the following fiscal year, which by his own admission now is where we really went off the cliff.

As far as who should be Jackson's next mayor, I think Priester is the best of the current pack but as 4:30 suggests he's probably too highbrow to appeal to the average Jackson voter.

Anonymous said...

Yarber is in over his head. Nice man- seems to care-has no clue how to be mayor. This Lumumba will ensure a state of MS takeover of Jackson. We can call in someone from Michigan-Detroit is doing better under an appointed overlord. Jackson will need that type of control.

Priester seems like he could do the job well- but should he wait until the state has to take control?

Anonymous said...

"This could be good" ???? Well maybe if you are looking for total and final destruction of the city. He is as racist as they come. Jackson voters get what they deserve. Sad that the rest of us have to call Jackson our capital.

Musical Executive Chairs said...

Some social experiments are 12-step programs. Will the next mayor be number 10 or number 11 in that continuum?

Anonymous said...

So many questions about this video.
Did he repeat himself?
What is up with the white dude in the white shirt behind Antar toe?
Where is John Reeves? I don't see him there.

Just seeing who his supporters are standing behind him says all you need to know about this numnut. Jackson is doomed.

Yes, INDEED! My Dream-team MayorITORIAL Candidate Lineup would be: Enoch Sanders, Kenneth Stokes, and Hemp Lady.

Somebody wake up Hemp Lady. It's time for her to run again.

Anonymous said...

I think the people of Jackson would elect Stokes. He is the poster boy for the State Democratic Party. I also notice that no other Democrats in Jackson will call him out. STOKES FOR MAYOR!!!!!

Jackson has done about everything else possible to kill the capital city. Stokes would be right in line with the thinking of the citizens of Jackson.

TO: May 20th @ 5:17---I bet I beat you out of Jackson and Mississippi !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From his signs, see that he still needs to run on his daddy's name; evidently realizes that he hasn't done anything on his own, so he still needs to run on his daddy's name.

Ooops. Repeated myself. Guess his video crew's technicque got to me.

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.

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.
