Victoria Jackson: Former SNL Star Compares Connecticut School Shooting To Abortion, Blames Obama

Victoria Jackson: Former SNL Star Compares Connecticut School Shooting To Abortion

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.

She wrote:

“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…’



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.

    Victoria Jackson is as dumb as dirt. A prime example of why the Republican party is disliked and lost in this presidential election and will continue to lose in future elections.

    Did someone add the definition "completely insane" to the word "right" while I was asleep last night?

    Human beings are scientifically animals. I'm not really understanding her point. I guess the GOP prefers to be fungi or bacteria.

    It is "hypocritical" for liberals on one hand to mourn the deaths of these children but then as social policy support the killing of babies in the womb of women for "any" reason at all.

    It is 'idiotic' to compare a fertilized egg to a fully developed, thinking, breathing, child.

    I hope you understand that all life develops in stages. Everyone starts life that way as a fertilized egg. Therefore that fetilized egg is just a different state of human development. Let alone, it be becomes a fully developed human. So, if you destroy it, you have destroyed a human being. So what's your point? It's morally acceptable to suck a human out of womb before it is born but unacceptable to kill it after it is born?
    By the way, thanks to people that think like you, there are "people" out there now advocating for post abortion rights for any reason also…Thanks for taking the society into a hell hole..

    I hope you understand a fertilized egg has known nothing else but darkness. But a born child has dreams and ambitions. You are comparing "would have, could have" to "is".

  8. Cody Lusk

    I hope you die a slow death after all the pain and vomiting the cancer has caused that god will 'gifted' you with.

    The fetilized egg is a human being in the early stages of development, otherwise what is it? How do you know when conscienceness is formed? How do you know when in the development cycle dreams start to occur? What is conscienceness?

    and every time a christian conceives a baby, they kill millions and millions of babies in the process. Think about it.
