E.W. Jackson continues to struggle with the fact that it isn't a violation of the 1st Amendment to have an opinion different from his own.
After the Virginia GOP nominee for lt. governor renewed his stance that the Democrat Party were the "anti-god" party (a statement which had even members of his own party trying to distance themselves from him), Jackson is once again whining that he is being persecuted.
"This is something that they do incessantly, unfortunately, because they have an agenda and that agenda means that spokespersons like me have to be destroyed, marginalized, basically gotten rid of in order for them to further that agenda," said Jackson. "So when you say something that's truthful, they twist that and turn that into something mean or nasty or like it's an attack. I never attacked Democrats and said if you're a Democrat you're not a Christian."
After being asked for clarification, Jackson responded: "What I’ve actually said is, and look I'm hoping this will lead to reform in the Democratic Party, what I've said is that the Democratic Party based on their behavior at the convention, based upon their platform, supporting same-sex marriage, based on their radically, avidly pro-abortion platform, has become a party that is really antithetical to things that Bible-believing Christians hold dear."
Back in reality, Jackon's exact words about the Democratic Party were as follows:
What people do is up to them but we can't associate ourselves with something that seems to have clearly committed itself to evil and to that which is against the word of God.
Like it or not, the same 1st Amendment Jackson hides behind when levying his vitriol also protects his ideological opponents when they tell him what they think of it.
And if E.W. Jackson is going to throw a temper tantrum every time someone disagrees with him, he should probably consider changing his profession, if not his nationality.
