Virginia GOP nominee compared Planned Parenthood to KKK
CNN political ticker ^ | May 19, 2013 | Peter Hamby and Ashley Killough

Posted on 05/21/2013 5:44:34 PM PDT by yongin

An outspoken and provocative conservative who emerged from Saturday's Republican Party of Virginia Convention as the party's nominee for lieutenant governor once compared Planned Parenthood to the Ku Klux Klan and blasted African-Americans for their "slavish devotion" to the Democratic Party.

E.W. Jackson, an African-American pastor and attorney from Chesapeake, made the comments in a self-produced "message to black Christians" posted on YouTube last year.

"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," he said in the video. "And the Democrat Party and the black civil rights allies are partners in this genocide."

Sensing an opportunity to tie Jackson to the rest of the Republican ticket in Virginia, especially conservative gubernatorial nominee Ken Cuccinelli, Democrats have already started highlighting those remarks and others in emails to reporters.

That is totally unfair. The Klan was evil, but they only killed a total of about 2,000 people.For Planned Parenthood, that century-long total would be a slow day.

The move to Todd Akinized Rev. EW Jackson is on. MSNBC mocked Jackson for standing up for God’s view on gays and abortion. Even Va Lt Gov. Bill Bolling is critical of Jackson.

That’s not fair to the KKK. They never murdered as many Americans as Planned Parenthood does each year. Not even close.

It’s no contest, the KKK only killed a few black children (most Klansmen wouldn’t kill a child) while Planned Parenthood has killed millions.

RINO Bolling’s credibility at this point is zero. He’s pissed he blew his chances on running for Governor as a Republican (and threatened to run Indy for the purposes of handing the office to McAuliffe). Bishop Jackson was a superstar at the convention and never trailed for the nomination. The Democrats/media/political establishment are terrified at the thought of an unbossed and unbought Black Conservative man of faith in a position of power. They are today’s KKK, too.

The Dems better WATCH IT. Herman Cain was just starting to point out the same thing when the bimbos popped up (that Planned Parenthood was, essentially, committing genocide on American blacks). For the Dems, it would be best for them to stay clear of this - it could EASILY split off their black base.

Bolling does represent a lot of GOP consultants in NoVa. Think Tom Davis. According to these experts, Allen and Romney lost Va due to the fight over Ultra sound screenings over abortions in early 2012.

Of course, Bob McDonnell did a horrible defense of reasonable abortion restrictions which got out of control. McDonnell was upset that Romney didn’t pick him as Veep. For the few years, McDonnell will be begging to be picked as Veep to either Jeb or Rubio or Christie.

Bill Bolling is not a conservative in my opinion, remember he meant with Terry McAuliffe and then all of a sudden was thinking about running as independant which would only hurt Ken Cuccinell’s chances as Bolling would take votes away from Cuccinelli .....thankfully Bolling stepped out.

I also might add that we need a candidate to damage Mark Warner in 2014. Warner must be given a free pass. Over else, he’ll be on the short list for veep to Hillary, Biden, or O’Malley.

The establishment wing is worthless. Essentially Democrats who love massive government and its expansion, but don’t have the common courtesy to switch parties. Bolling & Davis exemplify that rotting, dying wing (which is rich only in money and not voters). The repudiation of Davis’s wife in the first round in the nomination for Lt Governor shows how viscerally unpopular they are.

McDonnell has been a disappointment, but frankly, if he wants to run for Senator in order to soften up Horseface Warner, let him. Cuccinelli can take out “The Eyebrow” in ‘18.

This guy Jackson is a bit of a lose canon. An eccentric who will turn off the soft republicans and independents. Not helpful to Cucinelli’s campaign (in very purple VA), that’s for sure.

Bishop Jackson has the overwhelming support of the grassroots. The fact that anyone who would consider a man of God who speaks the truth to be a “loose cannon” speaks more to them than it does to him. He is a revolutionary in a time of universal deceit.

Sorry, the political reality is Bishop Jackson is likely to be crushed by the Dem Lt. Gov candidate, Aneesh Chopra. The grass roots may love Jackson, but he is not likely to be terribly popular statewide (in a general election) in what is increasingly a purplish-blue state. Nominating Jackson made electing Ken Cuccinelli a much more difficult task. With this turn of events, Terry "Bag Man" McAuliffe may now have the advantage.

Jackson is more likely to have a career on talk radio than public office. I know people don't want to hear it, but we need to be nominating the most conservative candidate that CAN win. We'd have been much better off with someone like Corey Stewart in my view.

I don't disagree, but political realities are what they are. There is very little chance Bishop Jackson will win in Virginia unless the political environment changes dramatically between now and November. VA is a purple, but increasingly leaning blue, state and a favorite of the grass roots often doesn't make for a good statewide nominee. We've unfortunately got 2 Democrat Senators and this state voted for Obama in 08' and 12'. Jackson reminds me of an Alan Keyes type candidate. Very popular with the base, terribly unpopular with general election voters.

Remember that Virginia has voted against the party in the White House in its statewide elections every 4 years since 1977. The folks that vote in the statewide (off-year) elections tend to differ from those that have voted in the regular generals, and lean more Republican.

As for the Senators, half the reason those 2 were elected was because both faced ultimately subpar GOP opponents. It was shocking how bad Gilmore performed (about as bad as the hapless minister the GOP ran against Chuck Robb in 1988) and clearly George Allen never recovered from his shocking upset in 2006 and in hindsight should never have run again.

Clearly running milquetoasts and establishment types get us nowhere but loss after loss. I think it’s time to run an honest and motivating candidate like Bishop Jackson for a change. The difference between him and Ambassador Keyes was that when Keyes ran against Zero as the substitute nominee for the Senate, he wasn’t really an IL resident and didn’t realize that he was being used by the state political Combine (the GOP side of which had no intention of helping him at all).

Jackson will come in with the support of his running mates, Cuccinelli and Obenshain. This time it’s Chopra that is the out of touch leftist carpetbagger from New Jersey who is running as the unapologetic gay lobby candidate.

Yes, but the state has changed quite a lot since them - particularly Northern Virginia. NoVa is much more liberal, much more populated and demographics are working against the GOP here.

I think it’s time to run an honest and motivating candidate like Bishop Jackson for a change

Well, you got your man. He's a strong conservative, I like him personally and will be happy to vote for him - but political realities are what they are. He probably doesn't have much of a chance. He will become known for being primarily a social conservative candidate and most likely lose badly. Worse, it is going to make it much harder for Cuccinelli who was already being tagged as too much of a social conservative. This state isn't what it once was, McDonnell (who is a social conservative) knew that and ran almost exclusively on fiscal matters and studiously avoided talking about socon issues.

The difference between him and Ambassador Keyes was that when Keyes ran against Zero as the substitute nominee for the Senate

I'm not even talking about Keyes blowout loss in Illinois. The man was a grass roots favorite in Maryland before that, and he got slaughtered in every general election. I mean like losing by 30-40 points. The man couldn't even keep elections close. So much for the theory that just running a real conservative is enough. It isn't. You need skilled politicians who don't say things the general public recoils from (even if they are true). Bishop Jackson won't lose by 30-40 points, but the odds are he will lose.

Jackson will come in with the support of his running mates, Cuccinelli and Obenshain. This time it’s Chopra that is the out of touch leftist carpetbagger from New Jersey who is running as the unapologetic gay lobby candidate

I sure hope you're right. I gotta tell you, I think it was going to be hard enough for Cuccinelli. Having nominated Jackson, I think we are in real trouble here. Let's hope I am completely wrong and the Virginia public sees the light and rejects McAuliffe and Chopra.

The Virginia GOP-e is apoplectic about this. The real conservatives have taken control of the party. They were afraid this would happen if the nominees were chosen through a convention rather than a primary, which is why they fought the convention tooth and nail.

"Yes, but the state has changed quite a lot since them - particularly Northern Virginia. NoVa is much more liberal, much more populated and demographics are working against the GOP here."

Oh, I know. I have relatives there. The husband is part of the wealthy big gubmint worker class. They're doing their part to turn the commonwealth into a cesspool like Maryland.

"Well, you got your man. He's a strong conservative, I like him personally and will be happy to vote for him - but political realities are what they are. He probably doesn't have much of a chance.

This state isn't what it once was, McDonnell (who is a social conservative) knew that and ran almost exclusively on fiscal matters and studiously avoided talking about socon issues."

By all accounts, McDonnell shouldn't have won by such a wide margin coming after the disastrous 2008 elections, yet he did. Dems are going to be on the defensive this year with the epic-level corruption. EVERY Dem candidate running should be tied to these scandals, especially the IRS one. Bishop Jackson should focus like a laser on that as another aspect of big government Democrat immorality.

"I'm not even talking about Keyes blowout loss in Illinois. The man was a grass roots favorite in Maryland before that, and he got slaughtered in every general election. I mean like losing by 30-40 points. The man couldn't even keep elections close. So much for the theory that just running a real conservative is enough. It isn't. You need skilled politicians who don't say things the general public recoils from (even if they are true). Bishop Jackson won't lose by 30-40 points, but the odds are he will lose."

I'm aware of his Senate runs in Maryland, but he was never a serious candidate. He was also running against (inexplicably) popular Democrat incumbents and was poorly funded in a state that has been largely Democrat since the 19th century with a rare interruption. The last time an unapologetic Conservative Republican won a Senate race in MD was in the 1950s. The last Republican Senator was the VERY far-left Chuck Mathias who retired in 1987 (and he would've preferred to switch parties had he continued to serve).

"I sure hope you're right. I gotta tell you, I think it was going to be hard enough for Cuccinelli. Having nominated Jackson, I think we are in real trouble here. Let's hope I am completely wrong and the Virginia public sees the light and rejects McAuliffe and Chopra."

That VA Dems would even entertain the notion of running a disastrous retread ultraleftist like McAuliffe gives the appearance that they weren't serious with trying to defeat Cuccinelli. Not to say we should take these races for granted, it's always best to run like you're a few points behind. I certainly have a lot more faith in running Cuccinelli than a Willardbot like Bolling. After all, if running a liberal like Willard was the better way to go to attract more votes, he should've easily carried VA last year... and we know how that went. RINO candidates gain us nothing.

That retread is tied or leading already. McAuliffe is one of the best fundraisers in the world, and he's attached to the hip to the Clinton's who are very popular in NoVa. Despite the fact that TerryMac comes off as a used car salesman, he will not be easy to beat. I really do hope you are right, but as a long time VA resident I suspect Jackson was not a good choice, will lose badly, and will end up hurting us up and down the ticket. He's a good man, but he strikes me as more the radio personality type and less an electable politician. I'd have much rather seen someone like Corey Stewart get the nod - someone who has proven they can win general elections in NoVa (Prince William County).

Anyway, here's to hoping I am wrong.

Turning off soft republicans is no big thing. Getting out real republicans and Conservatives is the way you win elections. One way you encourage Republican voters is you trash the Democrats for being the scum rats and baby killers they really are.

Make the Democrats defend chopping up babies like so many pieces of meat.

That’s even assuming he gets the nomination. State Sen. Ralph Northam, who is White, is running, and he is touting his Washington Compost endorsement. It’ll be funny if the “party of diversity” runs an “All White” ticket in VA in ‘13. The Dems might claim they elected the first Black Governor, but that was a quarter-century ago. What have they done lately ? Bishop Jackson is front and center for the GOP.

I think McDonnell’s popularity has declined. 4 years ago, I think he could’ve put the execrable Warner away... now, it might end up similar to Allen vs. Kaine. Depends what the climate is like next year, but there doesn’t seem to be a big effort on the part of the VA GOP to target Warner and drive up his negs in the same way the Dems went after Allen.
