Rev. Jesse to MSNBC: It's Jackson If You're Nasty

10/21/2009 6:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

During an important discussion on income inequality, an anchor for MSNBC got her Reverends mixed up -- introducing Rev. Jesse Jackson as Rev. Al Sharpton.

Contessa Brewer ended up blaming the identity crisis on the teleprompter -- but by the look on Rev. Jackson's face ... the damage was done.

As it is said, they all look alike... however, not in this case.

I guess this is why Fox News is beating MSNBC and CNN in combined views.. heck, even the 3am show beats all of MSNBC...

Big deal! They're both troublemakers anyway. I can see why it would be easy to get them mixed up!

Wow... that was a slap in the face to Rev. Jackson. Guess if the screen told her to jump off a cliff, she'd have done that too. Not much of an apology either.

While I don't agree personally with everything either Rev. Jackson or Sharpton decide to champion, I think the fact they are there to stand up for the underdog or bring an equitable and educated discussion out in a debate-- I think they are most relevant and should be commended for their dedication.

But while we're on the topic-- why did the (Michael) Jackson family step away from Rev. Jackson just before Michael's memorial service in July and stay somewhat with Rev. Sharpton? What happened behind the scenes? Curious minds want to know.

Angry Democrat 'Sky Blu' from LMFAO attack GOP Romney on Purpose .    

CONSPIRACY THEORIES has always been a way to control the masses by the Collective Far Left (Pitt Group Against Group ,via Distract the Masses). According to online & newspaper sources , some people of different races are beginning to doubt one another , because of the Divisive nature of Far Left officials .The Angry Words of Jimmy Carter and others , Empowers the Group Nationalists (like Al Sharpton or even Michael Moore) and OPPRESSES Individual Rights and Entrepreneurs in the Community , at large. Collective Group Think or Collective Entitlement (Socialism) is what comes about through the spread of a 'Big Lie' and other methods. The Race Card Gets Played on ALL races (black,white,brown,etc.) , Suspicion is casted on the other and an 'Party' agenda is achieved. A Simple Example of this could be A Person saying 'Hey Look Over There, He Did It' , while people are looking ' over there' their actions become hidden.
