Va. Lt. Gov Candidate's Questionable Views

E.W. Jackson thinks the president has "Muslim sensibilities," and he's not afraid to throw around a KKK reference.

Minister and lawyer E.W. Jackson won the GOP nomination for Virginia lieutenant governor on Saturday. The development has inspired some to take a new look at his strong -- and, some would say, outrageous -- views on everything from President Obama's "Muslim sensibilities" to a KKK-and-Planned Parenthood comparison.

New York Magazine's Adam Martin rounded up a few of them this weekend:

On Planned Parenthood and the Klu Klux Klan: "The Democrat Party has created an unholy alliance between certain so-called civil rights leaders and Planned Parenthood, which has killed unborn black babies by the tens of millions. Planned Parenthood has been far more lethal to black lives than the KKK ever was." [Politico] ...

On President Barack Obama's view of Israel:"Obama clearly has Muslim sensibilities. He sees the world and Israel from a Muslim perspective." [Jackson's S.T.A.N.D. blog via The Hill]

On gay and lesbian people: "Their minds are perverted, they're frankly very sick people psychologically, mentally and emotionally and they see everything through the lens of homosexuality. When they talk about love they're not talking about love, they're talking about homosexual sex. So they can't see clearly." [Right Wing Watch via Buzzfeed]
