Nominee for lieutenant governor sends 'message to black Christians'

"Planned Parenthood has been far more lethal to black lives than the KKK ever was!" Those are the words from the outspoken and charismatic E.W. Jackson, an African-American pastor and attorney from Chesapeake, Virginia. Jackson, the Virginia GOP nominee for lieutenant governor, made these comments at the Republican Party of Virginia Convention this past weekend. Jackson is taking some within the black community to task for its slavish devotion to the Democratic Party, saying it does them few favors.

'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,' E. W. Jackson says.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In a self-produced "message to black Christians" posted on YouTube last year, Jackson calls into question the black community's unswerving allegiance to the Democratic Party.

"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," he said in the video. "And the Democrat Party and the black civil rights allies are partners in this genocide."

Democrats have already started highlighting those remarks and others in emails to reporters. There is an attempt to undermine Jackson and the rest of the Republican ticket in Virginia, especially conservative gubernatorial nominee Ken Cuccinelli, the state Attorney General. Cuccinelli will face Democrat Terry McAuliffe, the former Democratic National Committee chairman, in the November election.

"Extremely divisive rhetoric from Jackson and Cuccinelli reflects the social agenda they would impose on Virginia. At a time when Virginians are looking for leaders who focus on jobs, the Tea Party has nominated a ticket whose careers have been defined by a radical social agenda," McAuliffe campaign spokesman Brennan Bilberry said in a statement.

Nominated at Saturday's GOP convention in Richmond, where Jackson beat out six other candidates for the number two spot on the ticket. Party activists also tapped Mark Obenshain to be their nominee for attorney general.

A former Marine and graduate of Harvard Law School, Jackson is also the founder of a nondenominational church. Jackson has publicly questioned President Barack Obama's positions and whether they were consistent with his professed faith. He has been spearheading efforts to recruit black Democrats to the GOP since last year, when he unsuccessfully ran for Senate in Virginia.

"Shame on us for allowing ourselves to be sold to the highest bidder. We belong to God," he said in the video. "Our ancestors were sold against their will centuries ago, but we're going through the slave market voluntarily today."

Jackson would hold the tie-breaking vote as lieutenant governor in what is currently an evenly divided state Senate. Republicans currently hold the lieutenant governorship and control of the 40-seat body.

With Jackson as the GOP nominee, Democratic Party analysts say that the Democrats are now a safe bet to pick up the lieutenant governor's office and control of the senate.

Of course, Jackson's supporters see things very differently.

Democrats will decide their nominee in a June 11 primary.
