Gay Rights Activist Destroys Wingnut Victoria Jackson and Random Bigot in Sidewalk Debate: VIDEO

Victoria_jackson

SNL-alum-turned-conservative-crackpot Victoria Jackson posted this video she shot of a 'debate' she had with a gay rights activist wearing an HRC t-shirt on the sidewalk outside the DNC last month.

I guess she's proud of it?

She writes:

A Gay Rights Activist in a yellow Tshirt, (his gay activist group all wore matching yellow Tshirts), approached me on the street at the DNC and said "in 29 states, you can still be fired if you're gay or lesbian," I replied that one can also be fired for being a Christian.

A stranger approached and joined the conversation saying that 13 year olds are being confused and taught to embrace homosexuality, and then he added that his mother had become a lesbian and that it had hurt his family... "My Mom's gay...it hurt my family...you're smiling...it's not even funny...."

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. She probably put it on her page because he's hot and his destroying of her arguments probably arouses her sexually.

  2. Good grief. I hope that Victoria and "dumb dude with the cap" have not had any children in their respective relationships. This people are truly frightening.

    The gay rights guy is very sexy. Yum.

  3. Being gay isn't about having sex. Straight people have gay sex, it's about love. but she wouldn't understand that. I feel like this woman would go away if she was ignored. the more attention she gets, the more she is likely to continue. I'd be happy not to see anymore of her name or posts.

  4. I don't think you can be fired for being Christian because under Federal law religious views are protected. However, there are exceptions for hiring if the hiring entity is itself religious (obviously). I'm not sure that can be twisted into her statement in any reasonable way though.

  5. She's Crazy. The other man on the street is crazy.

    PS. She is wearing way too many Leviticus abominations.

  6. Jesus H. Christ.

  7. I agree. Ignore it and it'll go away. No more Victoria posts.

  8. She was mentally ill during the SNL period also, but everyone thought it was just a performance. It wasn't.

  9. Is she serious? Can't believe she really is.
    "I don't believe in homosexuality." So illogical. Not matter of believe.
    The gay guy wont the debate easily. Logic wins.

  11. Nobody has ever been able to explain to me what "choice" has to do with whether or not gay people deserve civil rights. So what if being gay *were* a choice? Converting to Christianity is a choice, and as the man correctly points out in the video, Christians and adherents to other religions are protected from discrimination in the US. So why does the conversation about rights seem to hinge so often on first figuring out whether or not being gay is a choice? Can someone give me a serious answer to this?
    Also, something doesn't necessarily have to be genetically determined for it to not be a choice. Maybe this lady thinks that anything that isn't a choice must be genetic because she doesn't know anything about science, but a characteristic or trait can be congenital (that is, developing or existing in utero or as a result of birth) without being genetic.

  12. I don't believe in Victoria Jackson.

  13. y'know, i've had these "talks" with "concerned parents" at meetings about introducing LGBT-diversity dialogues and education in schools. These people don't seem to realize that no matter how anti-gay they are, or how much they dont' want their kids to "learn about" homosexuality it does not mean that they're children are straight.

    their kids are hearing their words. it won't make them straight. it will only cause incredible damage to their sense of self-worth and their entire concepts of Love.

    the children of parents who "don't want their kids to learn about homosexuality" are the ones who most need early education and who and what LGBT people are. it's their friends. it's their friend's parents. it's their friend's siblings. it's them.

    that guy is smart and on the point. which makes him even more scruff-tastic. woof, baby.

  14. Oh and that guy who joins is an idiot. At no point in history has a family ever been broken up or destroyed because a family member Came Out. They only get destroyed and broken up because of the anti-gay prejudice those other family members refuse to work on and get over. it's literally that simple. easy? no. but simple.

  15. I can't understand how anyone can believe that homosexuality is a choice. Victoria Jackson is an IDIOT!

  16. She's for real. I read an interesting article by a guy called Dan Steadman in which he talked about being friends with both Jackson and Kirk Cameron. He said in the article: "Early on, I came out about my sexuality, and she was quite loving and accepting about the issue. She had questions for me, but she didn't seem to judge. She'd spent decades in show business, so I certainly wasn't the first gay friend of Victoria Jackson." Cameron too knew Steadman was gay and didn't have a problem with it. He'd been over to his house many times, played with his kids and drank wine with them and chatted about anything and everything. Never once did Kirk tell him that he was "unnatural." In both cases he found out about his friends' "opinions" about homosexuality in the media. Somewhere along the line...things changed. Cameron's not at batshit as Jackson but they're both possessed by Jeebus.

  17. People like her help us in this culture war. She's so blatantly insane that only REAL trash like that white hat dude who probably was a plant to put the gay activist on the defensive, could possibly agree with her.

  18. You cannot be (legally) fired anywhere in the US for your CHOICE to be a christer, but you can be fired in most of the country for being born gay.

  19. In the kingdom of the blind, Victoria Jackson is still f*cking idiot.

  20. @Steve: You're right. If she's so serious about Leviticus, she should not have a tattoo. Unfortunately, some Christians still believe that tattoos are forbidden, and will not accept someone who has one. WWJD?

    @Knucklehead: The Religious Right takes as an article of faith that homosexuality is a choice and they have "evidence" that backs up their view. (If you want to ruin your day, view "homosexuality" on conservapedia.com. It's the conservative answer to wikipedia.)

  21. folks who are Christian enough to want their chosen religious views to affect how LGBT people live their lives, but not Christian enough to want their chosen religious views to mean that the poor, the sick, the dying, the elderly, the homeless, the destitute are provided with shelter, medical aid or money to get by.

    how odd yet typical.

    but this video is a terrific testament to why LGBT Education is necessary, at a young age - these bigots learned to hate before they learned to love. kids aren't confused. kids are highly adaptable.

    Posted by: LittleKiwi | Sep 28, 2012 3:44:50 PM


  22. Wow. Scruffy guy is rational and won this pretty handily. The other two are, I'm pretty sure, mentally imbalanced (to say it nicely). I'm pretty sure Victoria would fail several basic cognitive tests, but would pass the "flaming bigot" test with flying colors.

    Also, this study is pretty on point: http://my.auburnjournal.com/detail/198971.html

  23. @Thomasina: Excellent point.

    Posted by: Stefan | Sep 28, 2012 3:47:12 PM


  24. ow,so much stupidity in so few people. Jackson is clueless. You cannot be fired for being a Christian.

    Posted by: MikeMick | Sep 28, 2012 3:49:13 PM


  25. This is sad to watch - like gawking at a crazy street person - because that's what it is. She has no logical coherent point of view, all she does is repeat and claim that things happen to Christains too. While I'm sure she is a willing particpant in this; there's just that creepy sense she is being exploited for that little glimmer of former fame.

    Please no more of her.
