Queer Talk: Anti-Gay Words of Lt. Gov. Nominee E.W. Jackson (R-VA)

E.W.JacksonCapture

Buzzfeed has the collection of the “10 most” anti-gay words from Republican nominee for Lt. Governor of Virginia, E.W. Jackson. Jackson will “run alongside Ken Cuccinelli.” Check at the link for more details provided in Andrew Kaczynski’s article. Below are the basics.

1. ‘I believe there is a direct connection’ [between being gay and being a pedophile]. …

2. In his Senate run on the issue page, he said he would lead the fight to ‘stop our government from using the law to promote the normalization of homosexuality in society.’ …

3. Gays attempt to ‘sexualize people’ at ‘the earliest possible age.’ …

4. Gays are ‘frankly very sick people…’ …

5. ‘The Democrat Party has equated homosexuality with being black…’ …

6. On last year’s boycott of Chick-fil-A, he said gays ‘want to destroy the very faith which established this nation…’ …

7. The repeal of DADT was ‘a disaster of historic proportions and it must be reinstated.’ …

8. ‘I know people who have been delivered from homosexuality…’ …

9. Gay marriage is a ‘sledgehammer used to shatter our Judeo-Christian culture.’ …

10. Homosexuality is ‘killing black men by the thousands’ because of HIV. Pro-gay rights liberals have ‘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…’

I checked out Jackson’s campaign site, and noticed that among other issues he specifically identifies, under his “Agenda to Inspire and Unite Virginia,” are: “Protect our 2nd Amendment Rights,” “Defend Religious Liberty,” and “Permanently Defund Planned Parenthood.” His anti-LGBT comments, and a number of things on his “agenda,” probably “inspires” some of his supporters, but I’ll bet it also inspires his opposition.
