The newly minted Republican nominee for lieutenant governor of Virginia once compared Planned Parenthood to the Ku Klux Klan and bemoaned black voters’ “slavish devotion” to the Democratic Party — past statements that are likely to inflame the culture-war politics of the state’s 2013 elections.Cuccinelli and Jackson are completely on the same page here. Earlier this year, Cuccinnelli said reproductive freedom was like slavery, and Jackson "wholeheartedly" endorsed Cuccinnelli's position.
And like Cuccinnelli, Jackson is quite the bigot when it comes to sexual orientation, saying things like there's a "direct connection" between gay people and pedophilia, and saying that gays are "frankly very sick people" who try to "sexualize" the young at early age to become "pawns" for their movement.
It's pretty amazing stuff for 2013. But seriously, did you expect anything less from the party that nominated Cuccinelli to be its candidate for governor of Virginia?
