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?”
