Skip to comments.Victoria Jackson's journey from SNL to conservative balladeer
Posted on 04/21/2012 10:27:30 AM PDT by DBeers
A quarter-century after her debut as a regular on TV's "Saturday Night Live," Victoria Jackson is back entertaining audiences in South Florida. The crowds are minuscule compared with the millions who saw her, often portraying a ditsy blonde, during six seasons on SNL.
But this is entertainment with a purpose.
With a small American flag stuck in her pulled-back hair at one event, playing a ukulele and singing at the next, Jackson is out to spread her conservative worldview and alert the uninformed to the threats she sees facing America.
"There's an urgency in the air," she said during a recent talk/monologue/concert/Q&A session at the Davie/Cooper City Republican Club. "Urgency is the right word because this election coming up will decide whether we're going to be capitalist or communist, tyranny or liberty."
Jackson's biggest concern is communism. She says President Barack Obama is a communist, a conviction that she's immortalized in a song, "There's a Communist Living in the White House," which has received more than 500,000 views on YouTube. Her evidence includes an assertion without offering proof that Obama's parents were communists and his grandparents were "communists or socialists."

Without proof? I guess the lsm is ignoring everything his parents and grandparents said and did.
Her song is required to contain evidence?
When Pete Seeger sang that we were "waist deep in the Big Muddy", did he have evidence that we were in fact, waist deep in the Big Muddy?

No bias in that article, no sir.
You do bring up a very good point I was pondering recently while reading good conservative opinion pieces that are not published by the MSM and do not pretend they are unbiased 'news' stories.
We all know that the MSM for the most part is highly slanted left to the point of lying, omitting facts, and at times not even carrying stories -the MSM is carrying water for the left. YET, the way FR posting protocol is structured it is exactly this MSM that gets priority e.g. news and front page status. WHY? What about the conservative voices that post on alternate venues such as blogs?
I wonder if she’s still riding around with Toonces.^..^
Regarding FR posting protocol, you got me. Ask JimRob about it and see what he says.
In any event, all I could gather from that “article” was that it was a highly patronizing and insulting piece of garbage that makes Miss Jackson out to be a loon/a fool/a liar, et al (one who once commanded the attention of millions now “reduced” to miniscule venues populated by the most “extreme” of the “ultra-right fringe”).
It would require too much effort on the part of the “journalist” (sic) to actually VERIFY whether or not Miss Jackson’s assertions are correct. It doesn’t fit the media narrative to tell the REAL truth about Zero (but dumpster-diving to find out about the private parts of Palin’s kids is A-OK).
When Victoria Jackson started off with her far-right commentary, I thought it was all going to be a gigantic hoax that would make conservatives “look bad”. But she’s the real deal. Another surprise celeb that I figured was a put-on is Alice Cooper. Both of these stars take their Christian faith VERY seriously.
