Jackson Doesn’t Think the Internet Exists

E.W. Jackson has tried nearly every excuse and distraction he can think of to handle his long track record of saying idiotic and bigoted things, especially about gay people. But in a new interview with a local TV station, he just flat out lies and says he never said things he is on record saying.

Anchor Derek McGinty then asked: “Did you say that gay people live a sick lifestyle, they’re sick people?”

“Never said that,” Jackson responded. “What I’ve said is I think that the movement, the effort to change the culture is an effort to pervert things. But look, here’s the thing. I said that in the context of ministry. And as a minister, I teach what? The Bible. I’m not running to be minister of Virginia or bishop of Virginia.”

Of course, we’ve got him in an audio recording saying exactly that:

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.

And another lie:

Later in the interview, McGinty asked: “Let me put this to you Reverend. You said that the U.S. Armed Forces are going to be punished by God because of the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell …”

Jackson cut him off: “Never said that. That’s absolutely, categorically not true. See that’s what I mean. I’ve never said anything like that because I don’t believe it. And there are other things that have been said that I said and I simply didn’t say them.”

We have him on video saying that:

The hilarious thing is that he calls the military “a repository of traditional values — truth, honor, integrity” — values that Jackson clearly does not have.

    The internet is easy to find: it’s on top of Big Ben.

    Well how is he supposed to find the internet???

    More importantly, the people who are willing to vote for him can’t find the power switch on a computer.

    Perhaps we could put Ewww in touch with Al Gore.

    People of faith have got to the point where having a faith leader lie is so common as to be unremarkable. Rather than shunning, ostracism, or jail, lies are no longer even likely to disqualify them from elected office.

    The interviewer had to know what the man said else how could he ask such specific questions? If he didn’t reply with “Well sir, here and here is you saying those exact things.” Or was this just an orchestrated event to get denial out there?

    One distraction he’s missing is what Rand Paul’s decided to do. That’s to threaten to challenge people to do a duel if they have the audacity to expose his dishonesty.

    When they talk about love they’re not talking about love, they’re talking about homosexual sex.

    Project much? I’d say it is Eeew himself who hears of same sex couples being in love and starts thinking about bum sex.

    I hesitate to point this out but Jackson has a law degree from (trumpets blaring) Harvard, just like Ted Cruz. There really must be something in the water up there in Cambridge.

    Fortunately, as Dean Chambers informs us, there are contingency plans in place to keep him from becoming lieutenant governor. [/ sarcasm]

    Cf (doi:10.1111/j.1475-682X.2009.00280.x) — the primary focus of the technical article is inferred justification, but there’s also some nice empirical documentation of retroactive denial “I never said that” reactions.

    Michael Heath “One distraction he’s missing is what Rand Paul’s decided to do. That’s to threaten to challenge people to do a duel if they have the audacity to expose his dishonesty.”
    To be fair, Rand Paul got that from Wikipedia.

    There’s really no excuse these days for an interviewer to conduct such an interview without first pulling up the youtubes and quote links to all the planned topics on a laptop and replying to these ridiculous denials with “well then who is this right here talking?”…

    Has anyone sat this guy down and played these tapes for him and THEN asked what the heck is up? Asking ‘did you say this?’ is one thing, but this would all have more clout if watchers could see how he responds when directly confronted with audiovisual evidence.

    Rand Paul’s decided to do. That’s to threaten to challenge people to do a duel if they have the audacity to expose his dishonesty.

    ???? LOL!!!

    1. If that were true, there would be the longest line in the USA to duel with Rand Paul. He’s scary but not because he can pick up a gun. Anyone can do that. You could raffle off tickets to duel with Rand Paul and raise hundreds of millions of dollars.

    2. The last time that happened didn’t work so well for the survivor. Alexander Hamilton ended up dead but Aaron Burr ended up on the run.

    Don’t forget killing people.
    Sometimes the military does that.

    Now, I’m not saying that’s what it’s FOR, mind you…
