While much of the political world is focusing on the battle between pro-life gubernatorial candidates Ken Cuccinelli and Terry McAuliffe in Virginia, pro-life Lt. Gov. candidate, Bishop E.W. Jackson, is seeking to become the state’s next Lt. Governor.
As a pro-life, conservative African-American, Jackson has been pegged with the typical “Uncle Tom” attacks throughout the campaign from liberals who claim he is selling out his ethnicity by taking principled conservative stances and opposing abortion. That criticism went a step further over the weekend.
This weekend, Jackson found that one of his campaign signs in Virginia’s Loudoun County had vandals smear the sign with white paint.
From Jackson’s Facebook Page about the vandalism:
“Activists in Loudoun County pooled their resources and spent thousands on 4x8s for our campaign only to find them vandalized. This isn’t free speech, this is intimidation – and the Democratic Party of Virginia needs to put stop to it today!
We need to be able to work together if we’re going to continue to make Virginia a place where people want to live and work. That starts by stopping these antics and respecting the views of our neighbors.”

Earleir this year, Democratic went nuts over statements by Jackson. The quote all the news pieces were highlighting: “Planned Parenthood has been far more lethal to black lives than the KKK ever was.”
“The main similarity, which I will continue to propound is that the moral dilemma that both pose is very similar,” Jackson told conservative talk radio host Bryan Fischer, according to Buzzfeed. “The justification for slavery is in a sense the same as the justification for unfettered abortion, which is, the victim is not a real person, he’s not a human being and therefore has no rights that we are bound to respect.”
