E.W. Jackson Claims His Anti-gay Comments Have Been Taken 'Completely Out of Context' - VIDEO

Virginia Republican Lieutenant Governor nominee E.W. Jackson, who claims to know better than the Pope on gays, has also made the outlandish claim that his past homophobic comments have been taken 'completely out of context' and defended his remarks in a debate on Tuesday, explaining that he only uses that rhetoric in sermons. Fortunately, the folks over at American Bridge have put together a super-cut of some of Jackson's comments so you can make your own judgement.


You may also recall Jackson's other 'out of context' claims, including his comments linking homosexuality and pedophilia and his assertion that pro-gay rights liberals '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.'

  1. That's some amazing context.

  2. He's got constipation of the brain and diarrhea of the mouth.

  3. Gotta love these losers. I posted on his official website yesterday, just listing his homophobic comments. It took all of 4 minutes for my post to be removed. If you are ashamed of your own comments, why do you make them in the first place?

  4. Really EWJ? The interweb is forever, you idiot. You really should STFU, now...before someone amasses all the evidence against you. It will be awfully ugly and embarrassing.

  5. All this...and he only trails the Democratic candidate by 3 points. God, my home state is a horror show.

  6. EW Jackson is only following standard Rethuglican speaking points . . . . when caught in your own lies, you just lie some more.

  7. Jackson is a certifiable Teabagistani hack. Virginians will elect him at their own peril.

  9. I invite Mr. Jackson to provide the context in which his comments would be considered appropriate.

  10. The problem is that the Democrats are running the hack Terry McAuliffe. Pay attention people, because the Democrats are going to lose the Senate and the White House by running people who are out of touch with the issues.

  11. I don't think he knows the word 'context' or what the phrase 'taken out of context' means. To him it's just some catch-phrase he's heard others use to wiggle-out of the stupid things they have said. He's appears to be not particularly bright.

  12. Cuccinelli will win, not because he is good but because Mcauliffe is anti-second amendment. Isn't it time someone demanded better of the DNC?

  13. @ "Pay attention people, because the Democrats are going to lose the Senate and the White House by running people who are out of touch with the issues."

    Didn't you say that in October 2011? Or did you not exist then? Maybe it was said by Rick before he invented you.

  14. He should spend less time going after gays and more time focusing on marriage in the black community, where 72% of children are born to unwed mothers. Why doesn't anyone talk about that, which is a real problem? Oh, because it's not politically correct.
