Former Saturday Night Live star and conservative activist Victoria Jackson has made a series of controversial comments in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School murders.
She harshly criticized President Barack Obama, which is hardly surprising, but her comments on killer Adam Lanza raised eyebrows – even by Jackson standards.
Of the Newtown, Conn., shooting, Jackson posted on Facebook, quoting a friend:
“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. When you forget the TEN COMMANDMENTS, THIS is what you get’.”
While one outraged person said that Jackson should have to “go before all of the families that lost loved ones” with her views, that didn’t stop her for a second.
The Tea Party supporter went on to criticize President Barack Obama, claiming his pro-choice views are tantamount to mass murder along Lanza’s lines.
Jackson wrote: “Obama dramatically wiped a tear as he said, ‘The majority of those who died today were children – beautiful little kids … They had their entire lives ahead of them.”
“YEAH OBAMA. SAME AS THE MILLION BABIES YOU HAD ABORTED THIS YEAR IN AMERICA. ARE YOU CRYING FOR THEM?!”
Jackson, who describes herself as being “an outspoken activist for the conservative movement,” on Facebook, may be understating the outspoken part.
In President Obama’s Newtown speech last night, he called for America to ask “hard questions” about itself and whether we are doing all we can to care for our children.
No response yet from Victoria, but you can bet it won’t be a measured one.
