EW Jackson Claims He’s Been Taken “Out of Context.” Oh No He Hasn’t Been.

At the Virginia Lt. Gov. debate in Arlington last night, EW Jackson claimed a lot of things that were simply not true. For instance, he attempted to argue that after decades of extremist rantings, speeches, statements, writings, etc., that somehow all that either never happened, or has been “taken out of context.” That's utter nonsense – a Big Lie – of course, but don't take my word for it, judge for yourself. Check out the following statements, quotes, etc. and try to figure out in what conceivable way this stuff has been “taken out of context.” Hint: it hasn't been.

E.W. Jackson: Non-Christians are all “engaged in some sort of false religion” 

At a morning sermon Sunday in Northern Virginia, Republican lieutenant governor candidate E.W. Jackson, a Chesapeake pastor, said people who don't follow Jesus Christ “are engaged in some sort of false religion.”

Jackson offered that view while describing a list of the “controversial” things he believes, and that must be said, as a Christian.

“Any time you say, 'There is no other means of salvation but through Jesus Christ, andif you don't know him and you don't follow him and you don't go through him, you are engaged in some sort of false religion,' that's controversial. But it's the truth,” Jackson said, according to a recording of the sermon by a Democratic tracker. “Jesus said, 'I am the way the truth and the light. No man comes unto the Father but by me.'” 

 

E.W. Jackson vs. Pope Francis 

Jackson said he disagreed with Pope Francis, who sent shockwaves through the Roman Catholic Church last week when he said that the church had grown “obsessed” with gay marriage, abortion and contraception, and that he had chosen not to talk about those issues.

[…]

Jackson said Sunday: “I know even the pope has said when we talk about these things, we imply a kind of intolerance. That is not the point at all. The point is to be true to the word of God. The point is to stand up and tell the truth. There is no better way found, ever, to raise children than with a mother and a father in the home. Even sociologically, you can make the argument.”

But Jackson said that “this is not about hating people based on their sexual orientation or based on same-sex relationships or having bigotry against them,” but about whether “this culture is going to remain a culture based on Judeo-Christian values and principles, or whether we're going to become something else.”

 

Audio: EW Jackson Rants About “Rabid Radical Homosexual Activist Movement”

 

Courtesy of Right Wing Watch, which points out that despite Jackson's attempt to claim he only detests the “rabid radical homosexual activist movement,” and not all LGBT people, his past homophobic hate speech includes comments like:

*”Homosexuality 'poisons culture,' 'poisons our children,' 'destroys societies' and will bring divine punishment.” 
*”The 'homosexual community' is composed of 'perverse,' 'degenerate' and 'very sick people.'” 
*”Gays and lesbians abuse children in order to make them gay and that an increasing number of black men are 'recruited' into homosexuality.”

By the way, last I checked, the LGBT rights movement in this country was simply about achieving EQUALITY before the law for LGBT people with all other Americans. If that's not a fundamental American value, I have no idea what is. And if EW Jackson can't understand that, he should run for office in Russia or somewhere like that, not in the United States of America.

 

 Virginia GOP Nominee: We Must ‘Stand For An End To The Hyphenated American’

STAND FOR AN END TO THE HYPHENATED AMERICAN

It is time to bring an end to the hyphenated American. We have balkanized ourselves into islands of ethnocentrism: Italian-Americans, Irish-Americans, Jewish-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and African-Americans. We understand the desire of people to maintain a connection to their history and ancestry. That desire is legitimate, but not at the expense of our national unity. We are Americans with different ethnic backgrounds, but we are first and foremost Americans. Some of our forefathers came from Europe, some from Asia, India, the African continent and a host of nations around the world. If we restrict ourselves to our ethnic enclaves and ethnic identities, we deprive ourselves of the great benefits of the American experiment. It is about uniting a diverse group of people with a common love for freedom, democracy and the ideals of our nation. We are a family. We unite under one Constitution, one flag, and one common destiny. Without a single language, that ideal will become farther and farther from reality. 

 

Democrats’ racial strategy

 nearly 40 percent of abortions are performed on black women. With the release of MAAFA 21—the documentary film on the history of abortion—black Americans are becoming aware of its racist history. They are beginning to ask why Democrats are so religiously committed to a practice, which they believe is evil, and has a disproportionate impact on the black community.”

 That is the fear mongering perpetrated against the black community. This diabolical strategy has worked because it has the full cooperation of self-appointed, media anointed black civil rights leaders and most members of the Congressional Black Caucus. They dance to the tune of their white liberal puppet masters, and label as “sell-outs” those of us who hold to the historic values of the black community. How ironic. In fact, these so called leaders have sold out the black community in return for their own political and financial benefit. Vote against your values, and we will protect you from the racists. In some circles this would be called a protection racket.”

” The Democrat Party has become a coalition of virulent anti-Church forces such as the ACLU, abortionists, radical homosexual activists, pornographers, atheists and others. The only traditionally conservative group in that coalition is black Christians. They really don’t belong, but there they remain, captive to people who attack their faith and blaspheme their God. Democrat leaders must finesse this contradiction because they cannot afford to lose black support. Racial demagoguery and patronizing liberal black leaders are a small price to keep black voters in the “D” column.” 

 

 

TOP 7 ISSUES

STAND FOR AMERICAN HISTORY MONTH

We propose that a month be set aside for the celebration of American history, the Founding Fathers, our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. This should ultimately be sanctioned by the Federal and State governments of the country, but it begins with the people. We have lost our sense of identity and history as Americans. We have been made to feel ashamed and to deny the nobility of our Republic. It is time to reclaim and restore that nobility. It is time to end the historical revisionism that academe and other extremist and anti-American political forces have pressed upon the American people and our institutions. We have Black History Month and Gay Pride Month, but these only serve to further balkanize us. It is a sad commentary on our culture that many find it appropriate to celebrate sexual orientation, but not our common heritage and culture.

American History Month should be celebrated in January. January because it is the first month of the year, and because students are in schools and colleges around the country. STAND declares January 2010 as the first American History Month.

 

STAND FOR AN END TO THE HYPHENATED AMERICAN

It is time to bring an end to the hyphenated American. We have balkanized ourselves into islands of ethnocentrism: Italian-Americans, Irish-Americans, Jewish-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and African-Americans. We understand the desire of people to maintain a connection to their history and ancestry. That desire is legitimate, but not at the expense of our national unity.

We unite under one Constitution, one flag, and one common destiny. Without a single language, that ideal will become farther and farther from reality.

STAND FOR PRE-BORN CHILDREN

Pre-born children have a right to live. STAND will work by every legal, peaceful and persuasive means available to fight for an end to all abortions in keeping with our nation’s promise of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to all Americans, especially the innocents who cannot fight for themselves. We cannot turn a blind eye to the mass slaughter of unborn children and allow de facto infanticide to be the accepted norm in our culture.

To kill babies for our convenience is the equivalent of an idolatrous offering to the god of “sexual license”. It is no different than in times past when pagans offered their babies on an altar of fire to assure their own good fortune. Our fortunes as a nation lie in accepting responsibility for our actions, not running from them or destroying unborn children to avoid them. We do not hate or judge women who have had abortions or men who have encouraged them to do so, but we are calling the American people to higher standard of personal conscience. Nor are we calling for the criminalization of abortion or the punishment of women who succumb to the temptation. These women are often confused, misinformed and uninformed about the implications and consequences of their actions.

A different and harsher legal response may be appropriate for the medical professionals who knowingly perform horrendous procedures to bring about the death of children in the uterus. This monstrous activity has become socially acceptable in some circles, but it must be stopped. It is evil and we must help people see it for what it is, the taking of innocent human life.

STAND FOR A MARRIAGE AMENDMENT – UNION OF 1 MAN AND 1 WOMAN

The family is the moist fundamental institution of society. It has existed for all of recorded human history. While there have been aberrations in some cultures and at certain times in history, the most recognized form has been one man married to one woman. It is the height of arrogance and folly to tinker with an institution which has served mankind so well. The full weight of the unintended consequences may not be felt for generations, but in Europe where such experiments have been tried, it has led to a marked diminution in marriage formation, an increase in infidelity and divorce. If we are to cast aside the historic definition of marriage, why stop at one modification to accommodate homosexuality? We have no way of knowing what challenges will come next to test the constitutionality of the new definition. We must stop this once and for all. A Constitutional Amendment will end this debate and allow us to settle this important cultural issue. We must cease the endless debate which courses like a cancer through our public schools, colleges, businesses and other institutions.

STAND FOR LOW TAXES AND SMALLER GOVERNMENT

We believe the Jeffersonian principle, “That government is best which governs least.” Low taxes, minimal regulations and smaller government are not merely a matter of being left alone. It is a necessary protection against creeping socialism and totalitarianism in which government seeks by increment to gain complete control over the lives of the people. We must limit the scope of government in order to maximize our freedom. It is up to each able bodied American to take personal responsibility for our own lives and the well being of our families. The support of family, church, friends and faith in God are the answers to the trials we all face in life. We must cease to cultivate dependence on government, for such dependence only serves to rob us of our autonomy and freedom.

STAND FOR DRILLING FOR OIL AND GAS

We must drill for oil and natural gas now. Our very survival depends upon. We are a fossil fuel based economy and all the wishful thinking by environmental extremists will not change that for the foreseeable future. Fifty percent of our electricity comes from coal, but some are trying to strangle the coal industry. At the time of this writing, our economy is in a deep recession, but gas prices continue to rise because speculators can see that the future is declining supply. That does not have to be the case. There is oil off American shores, in the American national Wildlife Reserve (“ANWAR”) and in shale in the mountains of the West. There is natural gas waiting to be tapped in various parts of the country. We must go after these valuable resources instead of increasing dependency on foreign oil based on the fantasy that solar and wind will replace oil any time soon. We are not opposed to renewable energy sources, but our priority should be the immediate availability of fossil fuels. Failure to acknowledge this is economic suicide. Cap and Trade, onerous CAFÉ standards, gas taxes and a host of other regulations are crippling an already sick economy, and this economic insanity must stop.

STAND FOR ISRAEL

We must support Israel, ever mindful that she is still our sole democratic ally in the Middle East. We hope that Iraq will prove to be an ally for democratic freedoms for the long term, which is why it is critically important that we defeat the insurgents and terrorists in Iraq. This will make for a safer Israel and a more stable Middle East. Defending Israel is not only in our national interest; it is right. We must never hesitate to use our power in defense of our allies, and Israel is our most important ally in the Middle East and a top ally in the world. Acting in defense of Israel does not require permission from the United Nations or anyone else. Unlike any other ally, Israel is under direct threat of a nuclear attack. It is irresponsible of any administration to ignore this fact or treat it lightly. Israel’s enemies must know that America’s commitment to her is non-negotiable. An nuclear attack on Israel is a nuclear attack on the United States, and we must respond with our full military might. However, a firm STAND now is necessary to avoid the unthinkable – a second holocaust. 

 

 

GOP Nominee In Virginia Called Three-Fifths Clause An ‘Anti-Slavery Amendment’

Rev. [Charles Wallace] Smith must not have understood the 3/5ths clause was an anti-slavery amendment. Its purpose was to limit the voting power of slave holding states,” Jackson, an African-American, said in his statement.

“This is 2011. The issue of slavery was settled 146 years ago,” Jackson said in the same statement. “For the President of the United States to sit in yet another church where the Pastor dredges up the past as if nothing has changed demonstrates either tremendously poor judgment or that Mr. Obama shares this sentiment. Either way, it is divisive and destructive, and the President should be above such associations.”

E.W. Jackson: Nothing 'to rephrase or apologize for'

“I say the things that I say because I'm a Christian, not because I hate anybody, but because I have religious values that matter to me,” Jackson told reporters Tuesday at a Fredericksburg campaign stop, according to the Washington Post.

“Attacking me because I hold to those principles is attacking every church-going person, every family that's living a traditional family life, everybody who believes that we all deserve the right to live,” hecontinued. “So I don't have anything to rephrase or apologize for. I would just say people should not paint me as one-dimensional.” 

 

The YouTube Preacher

“Massachusetts Democrat Barney Frank was pushing the homosexual agenda. How could I, as a Christian, be committed to a party led by Mr. Frank? In the end, I could not. My desire to be in a right relationship with God and my faith was greater than my desire to be approved by my father, my family, or the black community.”

 “This administration,” he said, “has called the people of Arizona racists. Since they are willing to throw that accusation around, they ought to also answer for their own apparent anti-white racial bias.”

E.W. Jackson: Democrats Have an 'Agenda Worthy of the Antichrist'

Bishop E.W. Jackson has embarked on a campaign following his failed Senate bid to convince black voters to reject the Democrats’ “anti-God” views and partake in a “mass exodus of Christians from the Democrat party.” Today in an opinion piece in theWashington Times, “Blacks are abandoning the Democratic Party,” Jackson asserted that African Americans will abandon the Democratic party over the issues of abortion rights and gay equality, incredulously asking how Democrats have “managed to hold on to black Christians in spite of an agenda worthy of the Antichrist?” “Mr. Obama’s commitment to the radical left’s anti-Christian, anti-God politics may cost him the election,” Jackson writes, “because a constituency he has taken for granted has awakened to the truth that being the first black president is not enough.” Of course, recent polling shows that Obama has a commanding 94-0 lead among black voters. 

 

Republican Virginia Lt. Governor Nominee: Obama Sees World “From A Muslim Perspective”

Obama clearly has Muslim sensibilities. He sees the world and Israel from a Muslim perspective. His construct of “The Muslim World” is unique in modern diplomacy. It is said that only The Muslim Brotherhood and other radical elements of the religion use that concept. It is a call to unify Muslims around the world. It is rather odd to hear an American President use it. In doing so he reveals more about his thinking than he intends. The dramatic policy reversal of joining the unrelentingly ant-Semitic, anti-Israel and pro-Islamic UN Human Rights Council is in keeping with the President’s truest – albeit undeclared – sensibilities

 

Those who are paying attention and thinking about these issues do not find it unreasonable to consider that President Obama is influenced by a strain of anti-Semitism picked up from the black community, his leftist friends and colleagues, his Muslim associations and his long period of mentorship under Jeremiah Wright. If this conclusion is accurate, Israel has some dark days ahead. For the first time in her history, she may find the President of the United States siding with her enemies. Those who believe as I do that Israel must be protected had better be ready for the fight. We are. NEVER AGAIN!

 

E.W. Jackson: Obama Condones Anti-Semitism and Terrorist Attacks Against Israel

Virginia Republican Lt. Governor nominee E.W. Jackson has consistently implied that President Obama is a secret Muslim, and in a 2010 American Thinker column went even further by arguing that President Obama condones anti-Semitism and terrorist attacks against Israel by Hamas.

After accusing Obama of remaining “silent” over Hamas rocket attacks against Israel in addition to Helen Thomas’ statement that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine,” Jackson writes that “given his close association with Islam and with one of Louis Farrakhan's best friends, his silence must be interpreted as consent.”

E.W. Jackson: Liberals Treated Juan Williams Like a 'Slave' Because They Blamed America for 9/11

When escaped slaves were caught, they were lashed into submission. This was intended not only as a warning to that particular slave, but to the entire plantation of black servants to stay in their place.  Liberals do the psychological equivalent of this to any black person who dares to leave the plantation of liberal orthodoxy. After working over a decade for liberal National Public Radio, Juan Williams was summarily fired, publically ridiculed and told to see a psychiatrist. Liberals have a proprietary attitude toward blacks and other minorities. When anyone one of us dares contradict leftist thought, they try to punish us severely.…

One of my daughters saw a group of Muslims board a plane and sit in different sections. Their behavior caused her such anxiety that she got off the plane and took another flight. My daughter is not a racist or a bigot. We are black and have Muslims in our family. Are we to believe that it is bigotry to admit that the terrorist acts of 911 actually terrorized us? Signals which remind us of that horrific day evoke anxiety, a normal human response to terrible trauma. An entire flight was traumatized when a group of Muslims decided to have open prayers in an airport just before boarding a plane. The passengers became frightened by what seemed a bizarre display calculated to disturb those who witnessed it. Were they also bigots?

Two things are at play here. First, the far left — which NPR represents — does not have the same visceral reaction to the suffering inflicted on Americans on 911 because they believe we brought it on ourselves. America, in their view, is imperialist, greedy and militaristic. Therefore, we do not dare ascribe fault to any group but ourselves. It is alright to say “extremists” attacked us on 911 because America has its own extremists. It is not acceptable to identify those extremists as Muslims. Liberals do not view Juan Williams' expressed “feelings” as intellectual honesty, but as proof of his own and America's bigotry. That is the warped thinking of the left.…

The way he was fired demonstrates that it had nothing to do with any objective assessment of his professional conduct. A man who worked for them for ten years had become a political enemy and they meant to harm him financially, emotionally and professionally.When a slave escaped from the plantation, it wasn't merely a case of one slave being a problem. That slave became a threat to the institution of slavery and to the master's way of life. The response was brutal or the slave was sold off, i.e., fired. The attempt to break free was a personal affront to the slave master. “After all,” he thought, “I've been good to my slaves. Why would they want to be free?”

 

Virginia Lt. Gov. Candidate E.W. Jackson: Gays Are “Ikky”

“The President has proclaimed June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Pride Month. Well that just makes me feel ikky all over. Yuk!”

 

“The 'homosexual religion' is the most virulent anti-Christian bigotry & hatred I've ever seen,” he tweeted in October of 2009. “They have threatened me, but not vice versa.”

 

That was around the same time he concluded that “[t]he homosexual movement is a cancer attacking vital organs of faith, family & military – repositories of traditional values.”

After President Obama addressed the Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT rights group, Jackson groveled that the organization wanted to “homosexualize the country.”

After Family Research Council president Tony Perkins was disinvited from an event at Andrews Air Force Base, Jackson called the Obama administration “the Gestapo.” When Rush Limbaugh invited Elton John to perform at his wedding, Jackson called it “utterly disappointing.” He referred to Democrats as “Demoncrats.”

Elsewhere, Jackson describes President Obama as the “first homosexual President,” and endorses an argument by Frank Gaffney that Obama is also the “First Muslim President.”

“It will be interesting to see how Obama reconciles Islamicizing America with homosexualizing America,” he tweeted. “Babylon v Sodom & Gomorrah.” (The Baylonians weren't Muslim, but that's hardly the point.) Jackson considered it “tragic” that American foreign policy was, in his view, now “pro-Islam.”

He was also bothered by the presence of practicing Muslims in the administration

Jackson's fear of Muslims was such that after an Air France flight crashed into the Atlantic Ocean and a gunman opened fire at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC, in 2009, he immediately alleged—citing absolutely nothing—that both events had been acts of Islamic terrorism. (The Holocaust Museum gunman was a white supremacist, and the Air France crash was ruled an accident). Responding to a report that Obama was hoping to use his space agency as a way of reaching out to to the Muslim world, he was indignant: “Obama's new mission for Nasa, not to explore space, but expand Islam! Huh?”

“On Christine O'Donnell, just 4 words: Let the people decide! Well, 4 more words: GET OFF HER BACK!”

The 10 Most Anti-Gay Statements From The Republican Nominee For Lt. Governor Of Virginia

“These people are out to transform the culture. And they believe that sexuality is how everybody ought to be defined. And that means sexual freedom, sexual license to do whatever you want to do. And I know their people say, well, ‘It’s unfair to associate homosexuality with pedophilia or some of these other previsions.’ But I believe that there is a direct connection, because what they really want is absolute sexual freedom.”

“Lead the fight to end the open practice of homosexuality, bisexuality and, transgender behavior in the armed forces, and stop our government from using the law to promote the normalization of homosexuality in society and persecute Christians for holding to the biblical view that it is sin.”

“I could not agree with you more. Look, it also attempts to poison our children, divide them from their parents and the teaching of the church and basically turn them into pawns for that movement so that they can sexualize them at the earliest possible age. It really is insidious and I agree with you, it is a super sin.”

“Their minds are perverted, they’re frankly very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally and they see everything through the lens of homosexuality. When they talk about love they’re not talking about love, they’re talking about homosexual sex. So they can’t see clearly.”

 

“The Democrat Party has created an unholy alliance between certain so-called civil rights readers and Planned Parenthood, which has killed unborn black babies by the tens of millions! The Democrat Party has equated homosexuality with being black, which is another outrageous lie. We as Christians ought to know better. Shame on us for allowing ourselves to be sold to the highest bidder. Our ancestors were sold against their will centuries ago, but we’re going to the slave market voluntarily today! The time has come to take a stand. Come out from among them. Exodus now!”

“This is further proof of the insidious and dangerous hatred by homosexual activists of any Christian who dares try to live out their biblical values. The problem in society today is not hatred of homosexuals, but hatred by homosexuals of anyone who refuses to say ‘amen’ to their sexual behavior.”

 

“They want to destroy the very faith which established this nation, its very foundation, because it is an affront to them and they want a sexually amoral society remade in their image.”

 

“When we do programs to support the family, we are not thinking about homosexuality, but for homosexuals, any endorsement of the family as God ordained it is an attack on them. It demonstrates their paranoid obsession with getting the society to endorse their lifestyle and silencing those who won’t.”

 

“The bigotry is so virulent that it may be time to make Christians a protected class. Right now ‘Christo-phobia’ and ‘Biblo-phobia’ are at such a fever pitch among leftists and homosexual activists, and they need to be stopped before they get carried away in their zeal and do bodily harm to someone. Once again we must remind them our Constitution says, ‘freedom of religion’ and not ‘freedom from religion.’”

 

“The study justifying the policy change was an exercise in deception. The policy question was never put to the troops. The administration started with a bias in favor of repealing the law and then designed a study to justify their preconceptions. The idea that 70% of the military favored the policy is a lie. The unintended consequences on the military are staggering. Does this include transgender and transvestite individuals? What happens if homosexuals are married in one of the states which allow same sex marriage? Will the military recognize those marriages? There are too many unanswered questions. What of Christians who believe that homosexuality is sin? Are they to be silenced? Subjected to discipline or discharge? Will they live in close quarters with men or women attracted to the same sex? When homosexuality is given protected status, Christians are muzzled or persecuted for their beliefs, and their First Amendment Rights are trampled. This has happened in corporations all over America. The message is ‘be silent or lose your job.’ In the military, you cannot merely find another job. If keeping qualified people is the priority, what about the Christians who may be forced to leave the military because the environment is hostile to their faith? The message from Gates and Mullen is, ‘Get out.’ The repeal of the ‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ law is a disaster of historic proportions and it must be reinstated. My organization and others will to fight to make sure that happens.”

 

According to Bishop Jackson, CBC members insult the black community by “conflating the black struggle for civil rights with the demands of radical homosexuals for marriage and other special rights.” He calls it “one of the most preposterous frauds ever perpetrated on a people.” In a recent speech before a black Christian men’s group in Williamsburg, Virginia, Bishop Jackson said, “Homosexuals have no history of slavery, Jim Crow, lynching or being legally defined as 2/3 of a person. I have known people who have been delivered from homosexuality. I have never known anyone to be delivered from being black. The Democrat Party’s commitment to abortion, homosexuality and moral relativism is an affront to the values of the black Christian community. It is a ‘Coalition of the godless.’ Black Christians do not belong in a ‘coalition of the godless,’ and should not vote for those who are.”

 

New York’s decision to allow same-sex people to marry is another government sledgehammer used to shatter our Judeo-Christian culture. As a black American, proud of our civil rights progress, I speak for most black citizens when I say it is offensive that sexual preference has been elevated to the equivalent of a racial characteristic such as skin color. The two could not be more dissimilar. One is an outward characteristic. The other is sexual behavior. It denigrates the illustrious struggle for equality for Americans of African descent to associate us with the homosexual demand that society accept and approve their behavior.

 

E.W. Jackson: It just incenses me when they say “you’re haters.” We don’t hate anybody, we don’t hate anybody, we disagree with them, we don’t hate them, we love them, we pray for them, but truth is truth, right is right. We’ve got to stand up because what they’re doing, what they’re promoting is killing people, and you’re right, it is killing black men by the thousands.

 

Interviewer: If the media cared more, if people actually cared more about these people, they would actually associate the behavior with the problem, but it is like the elephant in the room, it is the one thing you can’t talk about, we see young African-American men contracting HIV at astonishing rates and yet it’s not talked about at all as a problem of homosexual behavior, that’s the astonishing thing.

 

E.W. Jackson: If you talk about it, you’ll be accused of being a racist just for bringing it up, which is so stupid. Liberalism and their ideas have done more to kill black folks whom they claim so much to love than the Ku Klux Klan, lynching and slavery and Jim Crow ever did, now that’s a fact.

Bishop Jackson: “Black Parishioners Choosing Jesus Over DemocraticParty”

“I am now sensing, hearing, talking to people — for the first time in 40 years, the black community is having a discussion about whether they ought to be Democrats, whether they ought to vote Democrat,” the Virginia minister said. “That's never happened.”

In May, Obama announced his support for same-sex marriage after years of straddling the fence politically.

“Ministers are being questioned by their members: How can we vote for President Obama?” Jackson said. “I've even had some ministers who are on the left frankly, politically saying, We gotta figure out how we quiet everybody. We gotta figure out how we get everybody back in the camp, because they sense that people are awakening and saying, now wait a minute: If I have to choose between Jesus and the Democrat Party, Jesus and Barack Obama, then Jesus is going to be my choice.”

“Our children are suffering educationally in our country because government schools have failed them miserably…teacher's unions are more committed to serving their interests than that of children…elites hate allowing parents to make choices about their children's education…our children are not political pawns in the liberal power game…parental choice in education is a fundamental civil right…”

Black Conservative Bishop Refuses To Condemn Mark Williams’ Bigotry, Says The NAACP ‘Should Be Ashamed’

JANSING: Well, according to ThinkProgress, a former Tea Party Express chairman, Mark Williams called President Obama, quote, “an Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug and a racist in chief.” He also called the Muslim god Allah, quote, “a terrorists’ monkey god.” Are you comfortable with that?

 

JACKSON: Well, first of all, nobody speaks for me. And if you ask me, am I comfortable with everything that Al Sharpton said, or Jesse Jackson said, or any black conservative said, you’d probably find things I’d say, nah, that doesn’t represent me. I’m a Republican. I don’t agree with everything Michael Steele says. So, look, we understand that the tea party is a broad movement and people will sometimes say things that some of us won’t disagree with — will disagree with. But the idea that the tea party movement is racist or that it has racist elements that need to be denounced is a nonsensical statement.

DEFY NOT COMPLY: E.W. Jackson’s Statement on the General Assembly Vote on HB1769

“Last week the Virginia General Assembly passed HB1769 titled ‘Health insurance: Plan Management and Rate Review.’ It should be titled ‘Facilitating the Implementation of Obamacare.’ This bill instructs the State Department of Health to assist in the plan management functions of a federal health benefit exchange in the Commonwealth. These health exchanges are an essential tool for the implementation of Obamacare.

“Virginia is duty bound to DEFY NOT COMPLY with any federal encroachment on the rights and freedom of our people. Working families across the Commonwealth are disappointed that a Republican led General Assembly decided to COMPLY and NOT DEFY a law that will greatly hurt the economy and health care options affecting all Virginians.

“The only hope to break the tyrannical abuse of federal power is in state governors and legislatures upholding the Ninth and Tenth amendments of the Constitution. Congress and the Supreme Court may have failed us, but there is still recourse. James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, wrote in the Virginia Resolution of 1798 that the states have the right, and are duty bound to interpose. The first responsibility of Government is to protect the rights of citizens. The first responsibility of the Virginia legislature is to protect the rights of Virginians. The General Assembly must never cooperate with the federal government’s usurpation of our rights.” 

E.W. Jackson, Virginia Lieutenant Governor Candidate, Compared Planned Parenthood To KKK

“It is time to end the slavish devotion to the Democrat Party,” Jackson says in the clip. “They have insulted us, used us and manipulated us. They have saturated the black community with ridiculous lies… They think we are stupid and that these lies will hold us captive while they violate everything we believe as Christians.

He continues, “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 the black civil rights allies are partners in this genocide.”

E.W. Jackson Warns Same-Sex Marriage Leads to Bestiality: 'Adam and Steve' Becomes 'Adam and a Bull'

During a sermon last October, Virginia GOP Lt. Governor nominee E.W. Jackson added to his long list of virulently anti-gay remarks by warning that marriage equality for gays and lesbians will result in the legalization of man-animal unions. Jackson warned the crowd that if they don’t stop “Adam and Steve” it is going to “soon be Adam and a bull,” arguing that their family, school and community may be “overwhelmed by the torrent of wickedness” if they don’t stop same-sex marriage. 

 

E. W. Jackson: No Federal Role In Disaster Relief Because That Turns Government Into God

E. W. Jackson, the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor of Virginia, said he opposes emergency federal aid in the case of natural disasters during his unsuccessful bid for U.S. Senate last year.

In response to a question regarding the role of government “in helping folks following predictable natural disasters,” Jackson replied: “I don’t think that the federal government has much of a role at all constitutionally, at all.”

“I think as a constitutional matter the federal government doesn’t have a whole lot to do with that,” he continued, lamenting that “we’ve turned the federal government into a kind of God and you turn to the federal government for everything.”

“We don’t need the heavy hand of federal government stepping in every time something goes wrong,” Jackson said. “I don’t think there is any constitutional authority to do it.”

Cuccinelli Running Mate’s Epic Watermelon-Smashing Campaign Ad

E.W. Jackson, the Virginia GOP’s newly minted nominee for Lt. Governor, is not a subtle guy. His extreme rhetoric and views, which we’ve been covering for years, will come as a shock to most Virginians. So will his Tea Party antics. In that sense, Ken Cuccinelli couldn’t have found a better running mate.

In this campaign ad from last year — when Jackson lost badly to George Allen in the GOP Senate primary – Jackson is seen wielding an axe to chop melons representing the federal budget, unemployment and Obamacare. Jackson says that Obama wants to use “a scalpel to cut the federal budget” while he believes “we need to use an axe.”

E.W. Jackson: A Vote for Me is a Vote for 'Glory of God'

Virginia’s new Republican Lt. Gov nominee E.W. Jackson made an unsuccessful run last year for the GOP nomination to the U.S. Senate. In this “message to the church” from that campaign, Jackson said there was a “calling on his life” to run for the Senate seat. He warned that “our culture is becoming increasingly hostile to Christianity” and he criticized Rep. Bobby Scott, a strong advocate of church-state separation. Jackson urged Christians to “rise up,” go to the polls, and “cast a vote for the glory of God,” i.e., for his Senate candidacy. The section quoted below begins at 2:35.

“This is an emergency, a critical point in American history. Continuing down the path we are on will result in escalating persecution of Christianity, but even worse, risk losing the favor of God on our country, which would be an unimaginable horror. I am asking Christians to unite on the biblical principles which founded our country and help me take those principles to the United States Senate. Those who understand the history of our country know the vital role the church played not only in the establishment of hospitals, colleges, and a host of other charitable organizations, but in the revolution which established this great nation. If Christians do not rise up, the future of our country is bleak. I ask you to go to the polls on June 12 and cast a vote for the glory of God. I’m not a perfect man, but I love the Lord, and I love this country, and I will always be grateful that He has saved me and gave me citizenship to the most free and prosperous nation in history. I will fight to see to it that it stays that way. As a brother in Christ, I ask for your prayers, your support, and for your vote on June 12 in the Republican primary.…”

  

“Cuccinelli-Jackson: Extreme Attacks on President Obama”

“We have on our hands the most lawless administration that this nation has ever seen.”

“Send Barack Obama back to the country of his choice.”

“We've got a very confused person in the White House who is promoting this viewpoint…same sex marriage, unfettered abortion.
“…who hires people and gives out goodies and demands loyalty and basically has bought the presidency another four years.”

“But we have never had a president who systematically disregards our constitution, ignores our laws,  and sets himself up as some sort of king or dictator.”

“Mr. President, sic semper tyrannis means this, you're fired!”

“Barack Obama is at best a confused man, is at worst has the sensibilities – and I don't know how this combination works – of an atheist and a Muslim.”

“He certainly does have a lot of affection and favor for Islam.”

“The idea that Barack Obama is a Christian is laughable.”

Video: Cuccinelli-Jackson: Too Extreme for Virginia 

“The Ku Klux Klan did not do nearly as much to destroy black life as Planned Parenthood has done.”
“The Democrat Party and their black civil rights allies are partners in this genocide.”

“Liberalism and their ideas have done more to kill black folks who they claim so much to love than the Ku Klux Klan and lynchings and slavery and Jim Crow ever did, now that's a fact.”

“The hate crimes bill, now think about that, that we would actually punish people for what they think.”

“Homosexuality is a horrible sin, it poisons culture, it destroys families, it destroys societies, their minds are perverted, they are frankly very sick people psychologically and mentally and emotionally”

“It's clearly wrong that a male and a female were meant both biologically and physiologically and by god in my humble opinion  to be together No two males or two females were ever meant to be together.”

“What we're facing right now is a situation where slowly but surely Sharia law is creeping and it's crazy. And that's where I think this president, given his druthers, would like to see us go.”

“Now I know there's a lot of argument is [President Obama] a Muslim. I can tell you this, he certainly does have a lot of affection and favor for Islam. That seems to be his priority. I've heard him talk about Islam in ways I've never heard him talk about America. Well, Christianity, I don't even think about that with him; I'm an adult, cmon, that's a joke.”

“This is a man who has deceived the country, lied about who he really is, we're really dealing with an evil presence, I really believe that.”

 

Obama favors Islam over Christianity – E. W. Jackson

“We can send him back to Chicago or Hawaii or Indonesia or wherever he’s comfortable,” said Jackson at a February 2012 GOP dinner, “but he’s leaving the White House!”

 

 

E.W. Jackson and Jerry Boykin Call for a 'Mass Exodus' of Christians from the Democratic Party

On Monday, fringe Religious Right activist and failed Senate candidate E.W. Jacksonhosted a press conference to “call for a mass Exodus of Christians from the Democrat party.”

And Jackson kicked things off by doing just that, declaring that all Christians and Jews must leave the Democratic Party because “it has turned its back on us; it is time that we turn our back on it.”  As proof, Jackson cited the plank supporting marriage equality in the party platform, saying that by including this, the Democratic Party has declared that the Bible is a lie and the God is a liar: 

 

E.W. Jackson: Obama 'Sets Himself Up as Some Sort of King or Dictator'

E.W. Jackson argued at a Tea Party rally last year that President Obama is trying to become a “dictator” and intent on leading “the most lawless administration that this nation has ever seen.” The Republican nominee for Lt. Governor of Virginia, who has suggested that Obama is an atheist Muslim Communist, told the Tea Party audience that unlike the founding fathers Obama “doesn’t believe” in the Constitution, freedom or America, maintaining that “for the first time” in US history a president “sets himself up as some sort of king or dictator.”

 

E.W. Jackson Says Democrats are like 'Slave Masters' who have Black Conservatives 'Punished'

After badly losing his race for U.S. Senate in Virginia with just 5 percent of the vote in the Republican primary, Bishop E.W. Jackson is once again railing against the Democratic Party and told conservative radio host Steve Deace on Friday that Democrats are like slave masters. “I liken them to slave masters who brag about how good their slaves are and how well-behaved they are but let them try to be free,” Jackson maintained, “let them try to escape and then you find out that they don’t really think very much of them.” Jackson said if African Americans don’t “kowtow” to the Democrats and their supposed “hatred of Christians” then, just like slaves, they “will be punished.”

 

E.W. Jackson: Obamas are Communist Sympathizers Who Promote the 'Liberal Plantation of Psychological Bondage'

SUBMITTED BY Brian Tashman on Monday, 5/20/2013 3:00 pm

Back in 2010, Virginia Republican Lt. Gov. nominee E. W. Jackson appeared on The Janet Mefferd Show to discuss First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech at the NAACP National Convention. Jackson and Mefferd were peeved by Obama’s remark that “when stubborn inequalities still persist — in education and health, in income and wealth — I think [NAACP’s] founders would urge us to increase our intensity, and to increase our discipline and our focus and keep fighting for a better future for our children and our grandchildren,” which Jackson said he found “disturbing” and that “whenever I hear this there is an ugly word that always comes to mind and that ugly word is Communism.”

Jackson claimed that President Obama and the First Lady “don’t understand our country, I don’t think they even like it,” warning that the Obamas are “the intellectual cousins and heirs of a Communist, collectivist way of thinking which is anathema to what this country is all about.”

He said he intends to ask black voters why they are “allowing the Tea Party to be made into your enemy and the radical homosexual rights people to be made into your friends and allies when they reject everything you believe and most of the Tea Party activists embrace everything you believe.” Jackson urged African Americans to “come out of that indoctrination, what I call a liberal plantation of psychological bondage.”

Jackson also lashed out at the NAACP, which he said has “completely lost its credibility,” and other civil rights groups as “race baiters.” He said that if NAACP activists were truly worshiping “the God of the Bible then they ought to be in agreement with the Tea Party.” 

 

E.W. Jackson: God will turn Black Voters 'Overwhelmingly' against Obama and Democrats in November

Bishop E.W. Jackson of Staying True to America’s National Destiny (STAND) continues to tell (largely white) Religious Right leaders that black voters are about to move against President Obama in huge numbers to punish him for supporting marriage equality for gays and lesbians. While Jackson came in fourth place in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Virginia with less than 5 percent of the vote, he won accolades in the conservative movement for his new video comparing Democrats to salve masters.

While speaking to talk show host Janet Mefferd, Jackson claimed that his video is part of a larger move of God to move African American voters against Obama and other Democrats. He told Mefferd that black Christians are “overwhelmingly” supporting his mission to punish the Democrats for backing gay equality, saying that the party is “in rebellion against God” and lost the confidence of Black America.

Unfortunately for Jackson, polls show Obama receiving over 90 percent of the black vote, in line with past elections showing tremendous support for Democratic presidential candidates among African Americans. 

 

Virginia GOP Nominee Thinks Harry Reid Is Just Pretending To Be A Mormon

BECK: How do you get people who are religious, who are decent people, just completely to divorce themselves of those principles in the voting booth? It’s like Harry Reid. I’m a Mormon, he’s a Mormon. I don’t understand, I’m sure he doesn’t understand me. I don’t understand how he can be for the things he is and do some of the things that he does and still say that he’s in good standing with the scripture, because it doesn’t work. 

JACKSON: There’s a saying I’ve heard among ministers: “some are called and some were sent and some just got up and went.” I think some of the people who claim to be Mormon or claim to be this or claim to be that, that’s all they’re doing. They’re just claiming. It’s a head thing. It’s something they inherited. But they don’t believe it or feel it in their hearts.
