Meet Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba

Chowke Antar Lumumba became Mayor of Jackson yesterday.  Here is his inaugural speech.  Enjoy.




Kingfish note (7/6/2017 @ 8:20 AM): I put up this comment yesterday at 1:55 PM but a few of you won't read all of the comments so here it is:

Ok, time to put some of you out of your misery. Read the top of this website? What does it say? Underneath "Jackson Jambalaya". Kingfish had a little bit of fun in adding the Soviet National Anthem and the Workers Internationale song to the speech. What the Kingfish didn't count on was some of you being so damn gullible. Did you chowderheads really think that Mayor Lumumba would add that stuff to what was a serious speech? Yeesh. I had some fun with him as he started spouting that Free the Land by any means necessary mantra at the end of the speech and he has quoted Marxists before. Of course, some of you think he is some bomb-throwing Muslim terrorist just because he has an African name. Newsflash: He is a Christian. There are Christians in Africa. Do some research. You might be shocked at how many Christians are in Africa who are actually -dare I say it- black. Hope I didn't scare you. Of course, this is Mississippi where traveling abroad means crossing Lake Pontchartrain.

However, it is a new day and new term. He is now The Man, The Boss, Imperious Rex. So far he has been nothing but professional. He will immediately start with the budget. That tends to sober things up pretty quickly although it had no effect on Frank Melton -as if anything did. I don't care who he is quoting as long as he fixes the roads, does something about the water system, and keeps up the fight against crime while running his government in an ethical manner. He is enjoying a great deal of good will right now and we can all hope that he makes the best use of it.

I believe that was the Soviet national anthem playing in the background

Hopefully things will improve with the new mayoer, but I have my doubts. I've been waiting 2 months for the city public works dept to fix the water leak in my neighbor's yard that is draining into mine, meanwhile my yard is a swamp and bullfrogs have moved in because of the leak. If I have to wait any longer the Corps of Engineers will probably declare my yard a wetland/protected habitat.

10:50, It wasn't Trump's inauguration, so I don't think that was the Russian anthem you heard.

Anonymous said...

11:00. Is that your neighbor's water line or the city's? If it is on the house side of the meter, it belongs to the neighbor and is his responsibility to fix it.

Excellent point 12:02! However I'm pretty sure that it's the old Soviet anthem. I'm going to assume he didn't know that or that he's a Marxist!

Give it up 12:02, that tune is worn out. The only one cutting deals with the Russians was Obama.

That was, indeed, the Soviet national anthem playing in the background. Unf***ing believable. Except, it is if anyone listened to him.

Hahahahaha. Amateur Hour continues at Jackson City Hall.

Between the rousing music and the "amens" all that was said was a bunch of NOTHING. We can look back four years from now and Jackson will actually be WORSE off. Guaranteed.

Higher crime, worse infrastructure, and a smaller tax base.

Why?

Simply because this man has no ideas or even a clue of how to bring people together. Instead, he will divide, just like his father did. The "us" vs "them" dialogue will continue.

What a shame.

It is the old Soviet anthem.

Jackson just hired their own Obama and the results will be just as abysmal.

You don't need a city clean up day BabyChok, you need your citizens to clean up after themselves every damn day. Good luck with that.

If they actually did play the old soviet anthem, then than solidifies the fact that "they" would like the Marxist way of government where yours is theirs and share equally no matter how hard or how little you worked...but wait, that's happening now.

Fretting about Jackson city government from people who voted to entrust Donald Trump with nuclear weapons? It will never cease to entertain.

Charlie Daniels, Visionary said...

I was takin' a trip out to LA
Toolin' along in my Chevrolet
Tokin' on a number and diggin' on the radio

Jes' as I cross the Mississippi line
I heard that highway start to whine
And I knew that left rear tire was about to go

Well the spare was flat and I got uptight
'Cause there wasn't a fillin' station in sight
So I jes' limped down the shoulder on the rim

I went as far as I could and when I stopped the car
It was right in front of this little bar
A kind of a redneck lookin' joint called the Dew Drop Inn

Now the last thing I wanted was to get into a fight
In Jackson Mississippi on a Saturday night
'Specially when there was three of them and only one of me

Well they all started laughin' and I felt kinda sick
And I knew I'd better think of somethin' pretty quick
So I jes' reached out an' kicked ol' green-teeth right in the knee

He let out a yell that'd curl your hair
But before he could move I grabbed me a chair
And said watch him folks 'cause he's a thouroughly dangerous man

Well you may not know it but this man's a spy
He's an undercover agent for the FBI
And he's been sent down here to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan

He was still bent over holdin' on to his knee
But everyone else was lookin' and listenin' to me
And I layed it on thicker and heavier as I went

I said would you beleive this man has gone as far
As tearin' Wallace stickers off the bumpers of cars
And he voted for George McGoveren for president

Well he's a friend of them long-haired hippie type pinko fags
I betcha he's even got a Commie flag
Tacked up on the wall inside of his garage

He's a snake in the grass I tell ya guys
He may look dumb but that's jus a disguise
He's a mastermind in the ways of espionage

I think I'm gonna re-route my trip
I wonder if anybody'd think I'd flipped
If I went to LA via Omaha!

I thought the commentators on here were crazy, but that is the old Soviet anthem playing in the video at the 8:30 mark...

You sure? I think it's "The Internationale" The international anthem of socialism.

The song is called the Hymn of the Soviet Union. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x72w_69yS1A

The funny (and tragic) thing is, most of the dipshits that voted for BabyChok don't have any idea what the Soviet Union was (or may become again).

And I suppose the commentors at 12:51 and 3:21 forgot how Bill and Hillary personally benefited from selling out the United States to the Russians. I also like how BabyChok said that Jackson Mississippi has been where some of the most horrible suffering in the world has happened...this guy is going to be trouble for all of "us".

Before the young mayor turns this place into "the progressive new San Francisco East" he might want to ride through west Jackson TONITE. It sounds like Baghdad
during shock and awe. The wonderful people of this hellhole have decided to put on a display of automatic and semi-automatic weaponry to celebrate either national independence or Antar's new regime. It doesn't matter. The older citizens with a little money to spend are getting the hell out or dying out, and the younger professionals are avoiding this hellhole like the plague. If he can't bring some sense of law and order to thousands of people who simply don't get the concept of self-control, Jackson will continue it's spiral into oblivion, and his plans for "co-operative" economics will be just so much academic chatter.

Anonymous said...

You haven't seen anything yet. Google "People's Summit" that was held in Chicago. It's underwritten by MoveOn and the new mayor is a shining and upcoming star with that group.

Also, at his swearing in he had attendees take the "People's Oath", which reminds me of a cult.

Man, Jackson in doomed. It is officially Third World.

Wow. Chokwe wasn't lying when he said there wouldn't be any learning curve going in. They were ready to hit the ground running. It's not even the end of Day 2 and the sumbitch has already got every feral cat in the city of Jackson saying "Mao"!

Where did this video originate? The quality is poor and I suspect the music was added as no one plays music while someone is speaking.
I'm not sure how thanking your family and those who worked to get you elected, a bit of humor, and saying you want the city to do well should be alarming, but clearly it's triggered paranoia in most of those commenting.

Anonymous said...

I noticed that the truck in which the new mayor is riding in the back (illegally by the way according to new state law) does not have a tag. Not only is that illegal but it means the owner is not paying any taxes toward city improvements and schools. I wonder if it belongs to the new mayor or some other Jackson citizen.

Anonymous said...

@7:12 Exactly. These folks are so anxious and ready to name call and mud sling instead of being supportive of this new administration they can't even be bothered to realize that this music has clearly been added to the video. Always screaming "fake news" but not recognizing it when it's right there in their faces.
Shame on you Kingfish for perpetuating the foolishness.
I wish the city of Jackson - and her detractors - the best.

If you have ever watched John Milius's 1984 version of Red Dawn, that is the same tune the Soviets played as they lined up the American civilians and executed them, when the Americans began singing "America the Beautiful" way off key, right before they were gunned down.

Wow. I had no idea what a sick person you were kingphish! Go to https://m.facebook.com/ElectChokweLumumbaMayorOfJacksonMs/ for the live stream. Speech starts at 1:05:45.

9:53, he has refuted it. Said Akuno is no advisor to him at all. In fact, he will tell anybody who asks him that (other journalists), but they have to ask him first.

I don't know if Kingfish ever did actually reach out to him on that (or other) stories. You know, both sides and all.

Anonymous said...

I'll be pleasantly surprised if he does nothing the next 4 years.

His preachy style and repeating his lines 2-3 times is already grating on my nerves. I don't need a preacher, I need someone to fix the massive pothole on my street that I have to dodge every morning when I back out of my driveway and I need someone to investigate my $4,000 water bill and tell me that it is something besides a leak.

Now that the Holy Days are over, can we combine all the Lumumba threads, push them to the bottom and get on with some news of general interest? The bonfire that is Jackson is getting boring.

Complete BS. Lumumba has NEVER publicly repudiated Akuno and his racist divisiveness. Hell, they traveled to co-op nirvana Spain together earlier this year. Take your spin elsewhere.

What will he do for South Jackson? That's all I want to know. Is he going to repair and improve the streets and the water lines or is he going to do the same nothing that his predecessors have?
I'm betting the latter.
20 years of black leadership has done absolutely NOTHING for South Jackson.

When you get off I 55 heading east on Atkins, you will run through the road where 6 or 8 weeks ago, they stripped the asphalt obviously to repave. Then we had an election. Apparently the city road dept. decided they don't need to work until told to by the next administration. What is going on??? If someone knows, please post an answer (excuse).

Antar Lumumba is going to install solar

12:47PM BabyChok and Kali Akuno went there last December.

But close enough.

Brother Kali IS the puppet master no matter how strenuously BabyChok's minions try to say otherwise.

As for reaching out to him, well, let's just say I am probably on their blacklist. I asked them to include me for their press releases and emails about the inauguration. No dice. His father's administration would not return my phone calls or emails. They refused to send me press releases. They ignored my public records requests for police reports until my attorney contacted the City Attorney and informed her she was about to get sued and would be paying his fees. Only other person who has treated this website in that manner is the current Sheriff of Hinds County.

Sadly, the truth is Kingphish got his ass caught and had no intention of owning up until he was outed. If nobody had suspected something was afoot and questioned music during a speech, do you think the King would have admitted his tom-foolery? Nope.

Several decades business owner in Jackson.. If I could leave I would... but can't afford to get out of town... rent's too cheap. Relative I know. And it's not just Lumumba, although he's the final cap. Would've done it long before now if I could. The city AND the county (such as appraisers) have it in for you - and yes, I take it personal. Their attitude when they're looking over your stuff is "tough.. payback"..

Screw em, I'll move or shudder in the near future.

"Got his ass caught? By whom? Doing what?"

By whom: By those several people who questioned whether there was actually music being played during the solemn ceremony. For quite some time people were debating the name of the musical selection and whether or not it was an official Russian anthem. You were all lost in the high weeds on that one. Then, out of the blue, he was spotlighted, caught....adding music where none was present before. Bam! Caught!

Doing What: Editing the tape of the solemn proceedings by adding music later determined to be similar to a Russian dance jig from a century or more ago.

Do try to keep up 8:37.

That post at 1:55 is what is sorely lacking from major new outlets today.

Kudos to you for doing the right thing.

KF, you made your point. The gullible did fall for it.
But, I fear you missed the cost.
Do you see the comments after you explained?
Few commenters actually read your explanation.
Worse, quite a few will only have watched the altered video and that is now their reality.
Citizens are unable to differentiate between " fake news" and actual news because they do not check facts or question anything that reinforces what they want to believe.
And, I don't know about you, but I have some well educated, otherwise smart and kind friends who are believing absolutely outrageous things that ought to be obviously questionable, just as this piece was.
That bodes ill for this Nation.

Kingfish said...

Our long-time reader is back, showing his usual comprehension problems and tantrums as well. Looks like I'll have to add a Kingfish note that explains this to the gullible .

I remember after 9/11 getting into a huge argument with a friend. It seems a claim that Oliver North warned Congress about Osama Bin Laden was making the internet rounds. Just one problem. It wasn't true. It was Abu Nidal. I had the videotape as I watched the hearings back then but taped them because they took place while I was at school and we didn't have Youtube back then. Didn't matter what I said, I was wrong. It had to be true because it was so fantastic. Friend got really upset over this. I have run into this same thing over and over since then and its gotten worse over the last few years thanks to social media.

During the recent Presidential election, all the candidates seemed to have "their songs" (sleazy, radio-friendly Pop garbage from decades past) playing at all their rallies.

So truly - hearing music which was actually appropriate for an inauguration (aside from its history - a history perfectly compatible with the Jackson-Kush Plan, I might add), did not seem at all odd, to me.

Yes, it would have been stupid to deliver a speech with music playing. But then, we're talking about Jackson, Mississippi, where LOUDNESS & STUPIDITY are the norm. The only thing that struck me as odd, was the choice of that particular song. I just assumed that the person in charge of the Inauguration, picked the prettiest song off a CD called something like "TIME LIFE Presents the World's Most Inspiring Anthems", without thinking about little details like the title. Or maybe they thought "nobody will know the what it is, but us insiders."

Frankly, nobody familiar with Jackson, would be truly surprised by ANYTHING that happens there (unless it's something 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.

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.
