Skip to comments.Victoria Jackson unapologetic for her comments about Newtown tragedy: 'This is what you get'
Posted on 01/09/2013 2:08:38 AM PST by SoFloFreeper
Comedian-turned-unfortunate-loudmouth Victoria Jackson made some extremely controversial comments following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT last week, though they're not surprising to anyone familiar with her politics. (She said she was disgusted with Christians after Barack Obama won the election, and that America died. She's also said that rape pregnancies are a blessing.)
On her Facebook, the Tea Party member 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.'"
Commenters quickly took her to task, outraged at her suggestion that the suffering families in Newtown somehow deserved their pain. Jackson, however, remains unapologetic.
"I don't regret anything I have said," she tells Huffington Post. "I meant that the grieving I feel for the Newtown children and parents is the same grieving I feel for aborted fetuses. Obama is milking this for political reasons. We need no more gun laws but should rather enforce the ones we have."
She adds, "It is the saddest day. They'll miss birthdays, wedding, having their own children. I pray supernatural comfort for each grieving mother, father, sister, brother and grandparent and friends in Newtown," says Victoria.

I think she’s right on and saying things that need to be said, and for whatever reason .. talked about.
Not kewel to conflate the two but, point taken.
She is right. However, I would rather a current actress say it than some has been that nobody takes seriously. It would have been awesome to hear Tina Fey say such a thing....lol. I know dreaming. But somebody that has been in a movie the last 20 years would have been helpful....lol.
Whatever restrictions the liberals place on guns should also be applied to instruments and solutions for abortions.
And sites/ media like PuffHo are going after every deflection they can to put conservatives on the defensive to disarm them (pun unintended, sorry) re their gun grab.
It may have been a case of foot & mouth to some extent, but she’s right to point out the hypocrisy/ exploitation.
they have nothing to say about the lack of reverence for life in Chicago 504 murdered, thousands injured by violent criminals.
Now we have Gabby Giffords and Husband out there telling us the more children are murdered by guns here in the US than anywhere in the world.
Sobering statistic to be sure but, more children are killed around the world than here in the US.
Look at Rwanda. Hundreds of thousands children killed....by machete...
It’s the psychosis behind the killing not the weapon.
To be sure, we could cite statistics that prove more children are killed in the US each by other means than by guns and violently so.
Strongly suspect this is a not entirely accurate paraphrase of whatever she may have said.
Suspect she may have said something along the lines that even a child conceived in rape is a blessing. Which I agree with.
But it's the child that is a good thing, not the rape.
Carina, you irrelevant tool...go occupy a kitchen...if you can handle that responsibility.
Planned Parenthood just put out their report on Monday,They have Performed just under 1 Million abortions the past 3 Years,with Government Money,Thats right with our tax dollars.
The Crickets are Chirping,No Outrage,How many were Female,Or Black,isnt anyone Curious?
What a Bunch Of Phonies
55 MILLIUON children have been killed by their MOTHERS!!! And they are APPLAUDED for it and people VOTE TO KILL MORE BABIES....it’s SICK and EVIL!!
My 'internet' pastor said the same thing...the people of Connecticut murder far more children on a daily basis than the number killed at that school. Victoria is spot on, and the squealing commies can't handle it.
Victoria? 'Well done, good and faithful servant'.
G-d takes her seriously. If people choose to ignore her words based on her current status in the entertainment field; that is their problem. Hope they like it hot.
The people of Red Hampshire just ‘doubled down’ on abortion this past Election Day. The fact that this state is still here when I wake up every morning is a testament to G-d’s mercy.
She’s wrong. We need to repeal the gun laws we have not enforce them.
I guess “LIVE Free or DIE” is not the motto anymore!!
Are Janeane Garaflo, Sandra Fluke, Lena Dunham, Whoopi Goldberg, et al ever described as ‘unfortunate loudmouths’ when they fit the description perfectly?
Good for her, Get used to the backlash.
