Outspoken Virginia GOP Lt. Governor Nominee and Minister Unfazed by Liberal Barbs
- No Fear - Why can't all Conservatives present their views with this degree of confidence?
- Democrats are frightened to death that a forceful Black Conservative could bump up the GOP African American vote to 25 or 30% costing them the election.
An African-American and a Republican, E.W. Jackson hasn’t made many friends among the left.
The New York Times characterized Virginia’s GOP lieutenant governor candidate as “beguiling extremist.”
The Huffington Post, in its front page teaser headline and photo, called Jackson a “VA bigot.”
Jackson has came under fire for once comparing Planned Parenthood with the Ku Klux Klan, the Huffington Post noted. He also wrote in 2010 that President Barack Obama “clearly has Muslim sensibilities” and warned for the future of Israel, BuzzFeed reported.
Jackson has refused to apologize for his statements.
“I don’t have anything to rephrase or to apologize for,” he said shortly after he was nominated, noted the Huffington Post. “I would just say, people should not paint me as one-dimensional. I have a whole lot of concerns.”

A must see video. If Romney had spoken like this he would have swept the election.
E.W. Jackson served three years and was honorably discharged from the United States Marine Corps. He then graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree(BA), Summa Cum Laude with a Phi Beta Kappa Key from the University of Massachusetts at Boston. Three years later he graduated from Harvard Law School with a Juris Doctor (JD). While in law school, he was accepted into the Baptist ministry and studied theology at Harvard Divinity School.
Jackson practiced small business law for 15 years in Boston, and taught Regulatory Law as an Adjunct Professor at the Graduate level at Northeastern University in Boston. Since returning to his ancestral home of Virginia, he has also taught graduate courses in Business and Commercial Law at Strayer University in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake.
In 1997, he retired from his private law practice in order to devote full time to ministry. However, he still taught law and maintained both his avid interest in – and commitment to – civic and political responsibility. His first book, “Ten Commandments to an Extraordinary Life” was published in 2008.
His second book is “America the Beautiful – Reflections of a Patriot Descended from Slaves”.
