Accuracy in Media

The PC police are out in force again, but this time it has Florida Democrats in a knot. The problem is the Leon County Democratic Party fund-raising dinner. The official name of the event is the Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner, but it looks like Jackson, Andrew that is will be bounced for offending blacks. Their answer is to rename the dinner, though no final decision has been reached on the new name. Monica O’Neal the acting chair of the county party was quoted in the Tallahassee Democrat as saying that “some blacks won’t attend a dinner named for Jackson” because of his involvement in removing native people from the region. If they are talking about the Seminole Indians, Jackson actions resulted in Florida being ceded to the U.S. Would it have been better to keep it as Spanish Florida?

This isn’t the first time Jackson has come under attack, as Springtime Tallahassee has pushed Jackson from the front of its parade to the middle to reduce his prominence.

The media hasn’t talked much about this story because it’s a Democratic Party problem. Heaven forbid should they embarrass the liberals and expose the ridiculous extremes of political correctness.
