Ok, this news is just a little late, but you guys should know that I can never pass up a story about Victoria Jackson. That lady is just too crazy, and I eat up every bit of it, I really do. Everything that comes out of her mouth is just really fascinating garbage. Victoria Jackson is enchanting. There, I said it.
Anyway, earlier this month, Victoria spoke at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, in D.C. Not surprisingly, she was a bright little ray of sunshine shining down in Washington, and, as always, she had some real gems to contribute to the conversation:
On her mission: “I’m here to save America from communism.”
On … um … gay marriage? “The people of California voted that they did not believe that gay marriage — no gay marriage,” she explained to HuffPost Gay Voices. “They voted that. A judge, probably gay, activist judge, overturned that. That’s what I’m talking about — communism.”
On pods: “Do you know what the housing is going to be like when we all live in a pod?” she asked. “And we all take public transit? It’s going to be Russia. It’s going to be Cuba.”
On Obama: “This president was raised marxist. His parents, his grandparents, his college professors, his whole life, he’s been immersed in marxism, even his church. Jeremiah Wright did not preach Christianity. He preached black liberation theology, which is marxism disguised as religion.”
On the Republican candidates: “Republicans and the Democrats are looking the same these days. Newt Gingrich and Mitt are socialists. I think Santorum is the only conservative.”
On government: “Most of our government is run by socialists right now,” Jackson explained. “And Obama is a communist. He just passed a law that the Catholics can’t do what they want in their own hospitals. We have forced slavery of the black community. Listen to the black conservatives who have escaped the slavery the Democrats put them under.”
Confusion: “We should vote on everything — of course we should vote on everything,” she said. But then she changed her mind: “Oh no, I believe in a republic where we should have elected officials. Democracy turns into mob-ocracy.”
But in California the people voted on civil marriage, she is told, so what happened in California was mob rule, right?
“No, um, it was a judge. It was judge,” she answers, hesitating. “I don’t know. You’re confusing me. I’m a beginner political activist.”
On gay marriage: “That’s not marriage,” Jackson explains. “It’s in the Bible. God created it. He did not create gay marriage. He created man and woman marriage — duh!”
Yeah, you guys, duh! Gosh! You just don’t get it.
