Jesse Jackson and his Monochrome Push Coalition held an anti-gun rally today in Riverdale in front of Chuck’s Guns.
Talk about a dud.
Those present said there was little energy from Jesse and the locals that he had bused in. One person said he looked “like an old man”, tired and out of energy. Another person who was there opined that it was a lack of cameras that left Jesse looking lethargic. In any event, there was little or none of the tension or aggressiveness from the last event at Chuck’s orchestrated by the Brady Campaign.
Jackson was very approachable, and even posed for pictures with some of the pro-gun folks.
Our side brought out all sorts of folks, including families.
If Jackson was hoping for a headline-grabbing event, he failed big time.
Which is fine with us.
