E.W. Jackson: Another stunning embarrassment for Virginia Republicans

E.W. Jackson: Another stunning example of GOP extremism

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.

  1. Participated in a Planned Parenthood rally outside the GOP Convention on Saturday. A protest-veteran, I have never been the recipient of so much verbal and near physical abuse. 97% of it was from men – old to young, but that three percent made it an equal opportunity to express hatred on the part of I’d say nearly a hundred convention goers. They were vile, nasty and, had someone not stopped in front of one of the crazies to prevent his decking a couple of us, violent. We had a right to be there (with a permit)to express a point of view. All convention goers had the same right to personal points of view. Three people came up to say as much. Three – of the 8000+. If this is the best VA has to offer we’re in bigger trouble than anyone knows. Of course, it’s still better than the Republican US Senators from Oklahoma who oppose federal assistance for their own constituents. Just keep waiting for a good dose of karma to come around.

    Two funny incidents on Sat. — a woman who had been wandering around muttering came up to me and said with great disdain — “You’re just a lesbian.” I said, “No, mam – I’m not, but the couple next me are — and I’m sure they’d be delighted to talk with you about it.” She just glared at them and left. The other funny was an 75+ year old women who came up and said she hoped I respected her right to oppose all Planned Parenthood stands for. I assured her that her beliefs are her’s and noted that it was good to see her participating in the political process since so few people do so — and that I loved the homemade sign whe wore. It said, “No, I’m not running for Lieutenant Governor.” We chatted and wished each other well and she went off for her day at the Convention. Too bad more people aren’t like her.

  2. Looks like Virginia Republicans are doubling down on the most outrageous right wing extremists! Virginia is currently in the top three most corrupt states in the nation so it looks like they want to add us to the top of the craziest lists too.
