Shocker: E.W. Jackson Wins GOP Lt. Governor Nod in VA

EW

For anyone who thought that Ken Cuccinelli would be the attention getting Tea Party firebrand on VA’s ticket for the statehouse this year, get ready. Bishop E.W. Jackson won the nomination late Saturday night for Lieutenant Governor at the Republican Party’s convention in Richmond. To say that Jackson has extreme views would be an understatement.

Through his group STAND, Jackson has called for an “exodus” of Christians. There’s a lot to cover on Jackson. A lot. You can bet that Democratic operatives will have no problem making some of the many “interesting” things Jackson has said an issue.

“Across the country, as black Christians debate the call to EXODUS NOW, Democrats are shaken. They desperately need the votes of black church goers. Democrats are responding by attacking Jackson personally on left wing blogs…” it says on the blog of Jackson’s STAND organization.  A few videos:

    This guy has values that resonate with conservative Virginians. I am not surprised that the Democrat Political Machine will try to attack and tear this good man down, for he is the worst nightmare for them. He is an outspoken, unapologetic conservative that believes that the Democrat party has used African American voters while at the same time ensuring that they will never be on equal footing with the rest of the country. Maybe the time has come to shatter that image of Blacks being irrevocably tethered and dependent on the Democrat Party and government for their identity and well-being. We certainly hope so.

    Bishop Jackson represents more than simply a breath of fresh air. He has unequivocally stated his goals and his stance in accomplishing those goals. As a man of Christ he is taking his committment directly to the people. It is truly refreshing that he has dismissed any notions of political correctness and states his views and purpose with dedication and zeal while clearly taking exception with those who give lip service to the new age concepts that have so altered our nation, its government and culture. I count myself firmly wiyhin the camp of this courageous man. I note that Bishop Jackson, among other things, is a student of history. His references to Jefferson and Franklin were pointed and historically correct. Those who might dismiss this man as just another flash in the political pan do both themselves and Bishop Jackson a severe disservice. Bishop Jackson and his message is beginning to resonate with the people of Virginia, it is only a matter of time before that message begins to resonate with Ameerica

    Bishop Jackson speaks from his deep, conservative Virginian roots. He acknowledges the value living by the ‘book’ has had in his life. He believes that the choices people make affect their destiny. He believes in this country’s Foundations that confirm ‘All men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.’ How radical is that? Just right as far as I am concerned!


  4. Let’s hope Virginia Democrats nominate neurological pediatrician and current State Senator Dr. Ralph Northam of Norfolk as Lt. Governor. He would balance the ticket coming from the populous southern part of Virginia with McAuliffe from the northern suburbs. He recently bested a well-financed Tea Party candidate in 2011 with 60% of the vote in a previously held GOP seat.

    I think voters would rather have the deciding vote in the evenly split State Senate to be a good doctor saving children’s lives and a defender of women’s rights, than a holy roller who wants to condemn all our perceived sins. God help the Commonwealth.

    Let the attacks from white liberals come. It will expose their real agenda. They are the racists who divide Americans over skin color. Black Americans have been enslaved by the lies of the Left for long enough. Break out! Think for yourselves! Don’t just accept what Liberals in the media say about Jackson. LISTEN to him and draw your own opinion. You might be surprised.
