Looks like Virginia’s Republican Party got the statewide ticket it deserves this weekend by nominating the incredibly outrageous minister E.W. Jackson as the candidate for Lt. Governor.
All one has to do is watch and read the quotes of Jackson to see where the party of the elephant is headed in the Old Dominion.
Here’s a sample from Jackson, a black minister from Chesapeake:
The Democrat party has created an unholy alliance between certain so-called civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood, which has killed unborn black babies by the tens of millions. Planned Parenthood has been far more lethal to black lives than the KKK ever was. And the Democrat party and their black civil rights allies are partners in this genocide.
Say what? Jackson doesn’t stop there. He is a stunningly public hater of gays and a rabid right-winger who claims the Democratic party has “an agenda worthy of the Antichrist.”
GOP insiders tell us the current attorney general Ken Cuccinelli, the GOP nominee for governor, is already looking for ways to distance himself from Jackson.
Maybe Virginians should look for ways to distance itself from a party that continues to give us candidates like E.W. Jackson and Ken Cuccinelli or past embarrassments like George Allen and Virgil Goode.
