Well, the formr SNL star has been saying shit for a long time now. But this week at the RNC, she just went even moronic (via The Huffington Post):
Reacting to the controversy surrounding Rep. Todd Akin’s controversial comments regarding rape and abortion, former “Saturday Night Live” star and conservative activist Victoria Jackson said on Wednesday that if she were raped she would have the baby because it “would be a blessing,” noting that the baby “has its own DNA” and is “not the father’s DNA.” And responding to a HuffPost Gay Voices blog post from a former friend who said he ended their friendship because of her views on homosexuality, Jackson said she doesn’t “think people should identify themselves by their sexual life.” “The Todd Akin thing was so blown out of proportion — it’s a joke,” Jackson said at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., when interviewed for mySiriusXM OutQ radio program. “How many times do people get pregnant from rape? It’s point zero zero one percent. It’s a joke. I read lots of articles. I know people, because I’m 53. I’ve know a lot of people, and I’ve actually never known anyone who got pregnant from being raped.” “And guess what?” she continued. “If I got raped, I would have the baby. And if I didn’t want to keep it because I had these [mocking tone] horrible nightmares, I would adopt it out. But I think that God can turn a bad thing into a good thing. And that, if I got raped and a beautiful baby who was innocent was born out of it, that would be a blessing. The DNA of a baby is individual. It’s not the mother’s DNA. It’s not the father’s DNA. And that’s why I believe abortion is murder, because it’s not the woman’s body. It has it’s own DNA. If there’s a boy baby inside of me, he has a penis. That’s not my body.” In response toGay Voices blogger Dan Steadman’s post, in which he wrote about ending his friendships with both Jackson and Kirk Cameron because of their views on homosexuality, Jackson discussed her gay friends. “I didn’t see [the post] but I love my gay friends,” she said. “My best friends who are gay, I’ve actually never seen them with a boyfriend. It’s like — we’ve never talked about sex. I don’t think people should identify themselves by their sexual life. My identity is in Christ. Some people’s identity is in what country they come from. But I don’t think people should make their identity about their sex life. That should be private. Why are they in the middle of the street in a parade? Why don’t they just have sex in their bedroom alone?”
I know it’s only Monday (quite early for this post) but since last week no one was inducted on my list, here she comes to receive such honour and be among those who are not afraid of showing off their bigotry and hateful rhetoric against the LGBT Community.
She’s a conservative CNN contributor, radio host, Breibart editor (of course), among other things, who’s gotten it all wrong about Joe Jervis’ blogging on last week’s tragedy at The Family Research Council’s headquarters in Washington, D. C.:
She, best of all should know that this kind of distortion could lead to even meaner (yes, there are people who can get bitcher than her) stuff from less civilized bigots:
For bringing hate to Jerusalem’s Pride. Here’s some of his kind words about the LGBT Community:
“Homosexuality has long ceased to be a sexual deviation, belonging to individuals and their private lives, which no one wants to interfere with.They came out of the closet a long time ago and are now the spearhead of the ‘post-’ culture. We are dealing with the undermining of the family unit, which is the basic building block of every national society. Throughout history from Rome to Europe in our day, the approval and spread of homosexuality presaged the decline of nations and cultures. If one reads the Torah portion ‘Noah’ – this comes as no surprise. The organizers of a pride parade do not wish to gain rights. They strive to force homosexuality as a culture upon the public sphere.”
Moron Of The Week: Fox News “Reporter” Todd Starnes
Ok. I know I usually post this on every Saturday, but this just make Todd the winner of this week’s induction to this list.
Todd, who’s a Fox News reporter (right there, what else do I need?) made the claim that the crowd at President Obama’s campaign stop in Florida was cheering the Colorado tragedy, when in fact, they were applauding because President Obama decided to cancel his event and instead asked the nation to spend the day in prayer and reflection.
This Obama campaign crowd is cheering, applauding. Umm - it’s a national tragedy, folks.
For keeping on the hating Arizona’s minorities, This time? The Gays, by asking the Supreme Court to hear a discrimination case involving benefits for State employee’s same-sex partners. Of course to strip them from their rights.
Again, I don’t want y’all bitching about how intolerant I am of gay republicans, because I’m not. It’s okay for LGBTs to have different political ideas than those from the left. But what I can’t really put my head around is why would someone endorse somebody who’s clearly against all of his/her interest?!
Jimmy argues that although he and Romney have their differences on LGBT Rights (on basically everything!) he’s more concern about the economic issues, which for him Obama has performed so [not] poorly on, and that Romney would do way better.
Do I need more reasons to induct this guy to this list?
For his quite rude and insensitive participation on The Circle. His non-interest in LGBT Rights and it’s advances at a societal and political level in today’s Australian landscape shows he belongs back in the 50’s. Shame that all his activism for Australian minorities in the last 30 years is being eclipsed by his homophobia.
For ranting against Cher over some tweets from the songstress & gay icon on Mitt Romney: “If ROMNEY gets elected I don’t know if I can breathe same air as Him & his Right Wing Racist Homophobic Women Hating Tea Bagger Masters.” which I find quite accurate. However, Cher almost right away apologised for the way she expressed her feelings, but not about how she really felt. The Donald however, ranted against her, and also igniting again the feud with Rosie O’Donnell, calling them both losers. Cher hasn’t yet responded but Rosie fired back almost immediately:
“He returns - like a raging herpes rash,” … ”He wants me … He needs me - he is obsessed … like a grandpa stalker,
See what I mean? This bully gets only tackier with time.
Meet Frank, who’s responsible of the most successful anti-gay campaigns in the USA history, including Prop 8. He recently left his namesake firm Schubert Flint Public Affairs, now rebranded as FSB Core Strategies, and has launched his new own PR firm called Mission: Public Affairs, which keeps old clients like NOM.
Oh, and by the way, he has an openly lesbian sister. Lovely, isn’t it?
