Saturday Sellout- E.W. Jackson

Bishopewjacksonsr takenatrally.JPGOne of the features I don't do as often (and need to) is expose you TransGriot readers to all the cookie-chomping sellouts worthy of the Negro Iz U Sirius?!!!! badge that was created by Denny Upkins for this blog.

Have to dustt it off and give it to our latest cookie-chomping knee-grow searching for his 15 minutes of conservafame in Rev. E.W Jackson

He was born in Chester, PA. in 1951 as the great grandson of slaves from Orange County, VA.  After spending three years in the US Marine Corps he earned a degree from University of Massachusetts Boston in three years and a law degree from Harvard in 1978.  Jackson practiced law for 15 years in the Boston area, studied at Harvard Divinity School and became the pastor of Ebenezer baptist Church in Boston.

He also taught administrative law at Northeastern University in addition to hosting a national talk radio show called 'Earl Jackson Across America' and appearing on several talk shows on WHDH-AM.

His turn to conservatism started in 1996 when he joined with the Christian Coalition to head 'The Samaritan Project' which on the surface was their effort to reach out to blacks, Hispanics and even Democrats to combat poverty through "faith-based" efforts but was nothing more than a front to attempt to convert African-Americans and Latinos to join the Republican Party..

After serving as the chaplain with the Boston Fire Department and as the minister with the chapel of the Boston Red Sox, he was consecrated a s bishop in 1998 and moved with his family to Chesapeake, VA to start Exodus Faith Ministries  

He formed a conservative leaning organization in 2010 called STAND (Staying True to America's National Destiny) was a good little conservakneegro and condemned the New Black Panther Party.  In 2012 he recorded a video urging African-Americans to leave the Democratic Party because in his words it has abandoned the values of the black community and that blacks had developed a "slavish devotion" to the party.

Yeah, right.  (Moni rolls eyes)  Back to the post about the guy that makes Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr. look like a flaming moderate.    .

In a stunning political upset Jackson beat out six other better funded candidates om May 18 to become the GOP Lt Governor nominee in the upcoming Virginia gubernatorial race.

And right on cue, he opened muoth and inserted far right wing foot in it.  Jackson has said gays have “perverted” minds and are “very sick people psychologically and mentally and emotionally.” He has described President Obama as “an evil presence” and liberal abortion policy as “infanticide.”

In an op-ed column in the Washington Times in October, he wrote that Democrats back “an agenda worthy of the Antichrist.”   He claimed Planned Parenthood has been more lethal to blacks than the Ku Klux Klan

And he claimed the odious 3/5 compromise was an anti-slavery amendment.

Kneegrow are you serious?    And oh, pick up your phone, it's Harvard Law calling.   They want their degree back.
