Va. GOP Lt. Gov. nominee says recorded anti-gay remarks taken out of context

Virginia Republican lieutenant governor nominee E.W. Jackson told Newsmax TV on Tuesday that the media has taken all of his anti-gay comments out of context and that his derogatory remarks were only directed at the “rabid radical homosexual activist movement.”

Jackson claimed he has only condemned the “gay rights movement, so-called, the homosexual activists,” which he said has an “absolutely horrendous” record of “desecrating the sacraments” and “engaging in all kinds of demonstrative behavior to try to call attention to what they view as their plight.”

“The rabid radical homosexual activist movement is really trying to fundamentally change our culture and redefine marriage and do a number of things that I just think are not good at all,” Jackson said.

Watch:

Jackson can scream persecution all he wants, but his past words stand on their own.

Jackson has alleged that homosexuality “poisons culture,” “poisons our children,” “destroys societies” and will bring divine punishment:

He even suggested that gays and lesbians abuse children in order to make them gay and that an increasing number of black men are “recruited” into homosexuality:

He does realize that these anti-gay remarks are all on tape, right?

  19. I’ve seen your video clips on the news and youtube. I’ve read your comments word for word. They both match up. You Jackson are a miserable old man. I can’t wait till your generation of simple minded, bible thumbing old fools are in the ground because of a bitter old heart. Yeah, I sound hateful right now but I’m not a leader of any organization full of sheeple that would hurt anyone because of my bigotry.

  24. Personal responsibility, learn some… along with some facts about the LGBT community. Someone send this guy a few pamphlets! Just flood him with them! I’m sure he’d change his mind if he really knew how much LGBT people are abused, mistreated, oppressed, targeted and tormented in the country. He should know personally, he’s part of that. That we were the children being abused… by the hetero-normative culture that tried so desperately to change us and blame us for their problems. The very same problems they wrought upon themselves and others. If I remember correctly a majority of the LGBT community is not opting for restricting voting rights, oppressing women and minorities, wasting countless dollars to keep senseless slaughters ongoing, that blame women for being raped, that scream, bitch and moan that we’re destroying America. No, that’s the hetero-normative majority of this nation. GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS! Sorry if that is taken out of context.
