Victoria Jackson proves yet again that she’s a piece of human garbage

Former SNL comedienne Victoria Jackson (to think that an institution as brilliant as SNL, which produced great artists like Gilda Radner or Jim Belushi also produced comedic dreck like Jackson) has yet again shown what an awful person she is as well as showing how judgmental fundie Christians can be.

Using this tragedy as an opportunity to showcase her stupidity, in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, Jackson tweeted:

“My friend Jim Riley posted: “Wasn’t the Connecticut killer just doing what abortionists do every day? It’s a wonder we don’t have more 20 year old “dads” doing what women and doctors have been an accomplice to for years in America. When you forget the TEN COMMANDMENTS, people, THIS is what you get.”

So, according to Jackson, her “god” is so vengeful that he takes out his frustration on little kids and their teachers.

Obviously, Jackson is entitled to tweet anything she’d like – it’s her right to be as idiotic as she’d like to be (though she’s abusing that right).

But what the religious community – as well as the politically conservative community, as well – needs to do is condemn her stupid remarks, and shun her.

Actually I think everyone should shun Jackson.

It’s sad because Jackson’s a mother herself – and in this moment of great tragedy when parents look at their kids in that kind of “parents’ worst nightmare scenario” way, Jackson instead looks at her kid, but then quickly thinks, “Now, how can I be the most asshat-like jerk possible?”

  1. There are NO words for people like Victoria Jackson or the “nice” folks at Westboro Baptist Church who say they’re headed to Newtown to protest at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It’s sad to me that it’s the absolute worst of so-called Christians (who don’t in anyway represent my Christian faith) who speak out the most and say they’re doing “God’s will” … Well, all I can say is their road to hell is paved with all of the so-called “God said to do this” beliefs.

  2. Jackson was part of the one of the greatest casts in SNL history so when I read/hear about the completely indefensibly stupid things she says, it’s somehow doubly sad. I wish I could find a coherent defense for her position. I’d really like to have someone explain what I find to be reprehensible ideas in a way that I can understand, at least theoretically.

    One of the downsides of democracy is that to give everyone the right to free speech, you have to put up with all the crazies too. And they usually yell the loudest. Sigh.

    • I wrote about this in an earlier piece – I think part of it MAY be (just may be) a performance art piece, and she’s really aping some kind of conservative monster – sort of like what Stephen Colbert does with his alter-ego.
      I don’t think there is a defense for Jackson’s words – she’s nuts – and stupid – a really f’d up cocktail of inanity and evil…
      I just feel really bad for her kid, though – right now, everyone is paying attention to Twitter and Facebook, and examining what kinds of things are being said, and if her kid has to go to school with such a nightmare for a mother, I can imagine all the crap she has to take.
