The Virginia Republican Party this weekend nominated for lieutenant governor a minister who has a history of virulent anti-gay statements, accuses the Democratic Party of enslaving African Americans, and criticized President Obama for having “Muslim sensibilities.”
The former Senate candidate ,who in 2012 garnered less than 5 percent of the vote in the Republican primary, bested six other candidates during the Virginia GOP convention, and will join conservative Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli on the Republican ticket.
He is the first black candidate the state party has endorsed since 1988.
Here are some of the most alarming facts you need to know about E.W. Jackson:
-He has said gays and lesbians are “very sick people, psychologically and emotionally” whose minds are perverted.
-He has also said homosexuality “poisons culture, it destroys families, it destroys societies.”
-He called alleged Democratic Party ties to Planned Parenthood “more lethal to black lives than [white hate groups] ever was” and thinks blacks who join the Democratic Party are voluntarily selling themselves into slavery.
-He has equated Islam with anti-semitism, and criticized President Obama for having “Muslim sensibilities.”
So, is this what it takes for black people the be down with the GOP goons? We’ll pass.
