Victoria Jackson has made controversial comments about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, comparing the actions of the shooter to an “abortionist.”
The former Saturday Night Live star is no stranger to controversy, and has made several incendiary comments in the past, airing her right-wing views. In the aftermath of the Newtown, Connecticut, school shooting, Victoria Jackson took to her Facebook page to air her views on the tragedy.
Quoting friend and fellow Tea Partier Jim Riley,Jackson says the actions of suspected shooter Adam Lanza are not unlike those who perform abortions.
“My friend Jim Riley posted: ‘Wasn’t the Connecticut killer just doing what abortionists do every day? It’s a wonder we don’t have more 20 year old “dads” doing what women and doctors have been an accomplice to for years in America. When you forget the TEN COMMANDMENTS, people, THIS is what you get.’ “
The comments drew outrage online, with The Huffington Post calling it “something you’d hear from Fred Phelps.”
But Victoria Jackson wasn’t done, making more comments comparing the Connecticut school shooting to abortion. She later directed her attack to President Obama in another post:
“Obama dramatically wiped a tear as he said, ‘The majority of those who died today were children — beautiful little kids … They had their entire lives ahead of them — birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own…’
“YEAH OBAMA. SAME AS THE MILLION BABIES YOU HAD ABORTED THIS YEAR.
“ARE YOU CRYING FOR THEM?!”
She also blamed the Connecticut school shooting in the fact that schools teach evolution to students.
“TV News can’t figure out why all these 20 year olds are murdering,” Victoria Jackson wrote. “The school system taught them they are animals (evolution) for the last 20 years. Survival of the fittest. They’re just acting like animals.”
The Victoria Jackson comments on the Connecticut school shooting are in line with previous political statement she has made. After President Obama’s re-election in November, she noted that the American people voted God out and evil in to the White House.
