Comedian-turned-unfortunate-loudmouth Victoria Jackson made some extremely controversial comments following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT last week, though they’re not surprising to anyone familiar with her politics. (She said she was disgusted with Christians after Barack Obama won the election, and that America died. She’s also said that rape pregnancies are a blessing.)
On her Facebook, the Tea Party member wrote: “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.'”
Commenters quickly took her to task, outraged at her suggestion that the suffering families in Newtown somehow deserved their pain. Jackson, however, remains unapologetic.
“I don’t regret anything I have said,” she tells Huffington Post. “I meant that the grieving I feel for the Newtown children and parents is the same grieving I feel for aborted fetuses. Obama is milking this for political reasons. We need no more gun laws but should rather enforce the ones we have.”
She adds, “It is the saddest day. They’ll miss birthdays, wedding, having their own children. I pray supernatural comfort for each grieving mother, father, sister, brother and grandparent and friends in Newtown,” says Victoria.
