Jesse Jackson Praises Dennis Rodman For Diplomacy Efforts in North Korea

rodmankimsmileTwo-time presidential candidate Rev. Jesse Jackson turned to Twitter on Monday to offer words of encouragement to former NBA player Dennis Rodman’s “diplomatic” trips to North Korea.

Jackson tweeted: “Congrads @dennisrodman on your diplomacy efforts in North Korea. It might be dark but you are a light!”

The reverend added shortly after: “@dennisrodman ping pong diplomacy worked in China, and Basketball seems to work in North Korea. #KeepHopeAlive”

According to townhall.com: “Rodman had previously stated that he loved Kim Jong Un, the North Korean dictator, calling him a ‘good guy’ and a ‘friend.’ Kim Jong Un made headlines recently for executing his uncle. Earlier this year, Kim Jong Un said that Switzerland was committing a human rights abuse for refusing to sell North Korea ski lifts.”

Rodman has made four trips to North Korea.

    Dennis should have let Charles speak. Dennis is a very emotional person. He opened the door for the media to flip the script.

    The media has a way of feeding the American public government propaganda. Our government is controlled by multi-national corporations, as well as the media. They brainwash the public with whose good or bad. Who the "Axis of Evil" are in the world.

    I'm not saying there is no truth to what the government and media says about Kim Jong Un. But, there is something that I do know. Nelson Mandela and the ANC were considered a terrorist organization. Chavez of Venezuela was said to be a dictator, so was Col. Qadahfi. MLK was called a communist, so was Ralph Bunche,Paul Roberson, James Baldwin. The Communist Party was made out to be a threat to national security. But, check the history of the Communist Party. They helped fight racism against black people in this country as well as abroad.

    Your enemy ain't my enemy!
