Victoria Jackson Defends Glee Rant, Explains Homophobia's Just A "Liberal Buzzword"

Last week Victoria Jackson, who you probably haven't thought of since watching SNL reruns during your last sick day, wrote in a column on

Did you see "Glee" this week? Sickening! And, besides shoving the gay thing down our throats, they made a mockery of Christians – again! I wonder what their agenda is? Hey, producers of "Glee" – what's your agenda? One-way tolerance?


This is actually just a sidenote in a column bashing Muslims, but the media picked up on her attack on Blaine and Kurt's kiss rather than hateful comments like:

Frankly, I'm afraid to say anything about Muslims. Why? Because they kill people ... Why do liberals embrace Shariah law even though "beheading your wife" seems to go against the feminist movement's mantra? Why do liberals embrace Islam knowing it frowns on homosexuality?

Because they have the same goals. Progressives, communists, liberals, globalists and Muslims want to destroy America. When that goal is reached, they will fight for top billing. It will be bloody.

Last night, Jackson appeared on HLN's Showbiz Tonight to elaborate on why she's "sickened" by the sight of two men kissing, and she didn't forget to bring the crazy!

After pretending to cover her eyes when HLN replayed the clip, Jackson said she really isn't homophobic, because homophobia doesn't exist. "You see, that's a cute little buzzword of the liberal agenda."

But, she adds that is doesn't matter what she thinks, "what matters is what the Bible says." And what is that? She explains:

Basically, the Bible says homosexuality is a sin. But it has also gossip is listed in the same paragraph as an equal sin. And the reason the Bible tells us what is a sin is to point us to the Savior and show us we need one. Jesus Christ.


So the Bible says being gay is as minor an offense as gossiping? Then why aren't conservatives pushing laws to limit the rights of TMZ readers? And shouldn't Jackson be more upset about four seasons of Gossip Girl than one little boy/boy kiss on Glee?

Jackson doesn't elaborate on that point, but she does have some ideas for what she'd rather see on the show:

"They should have a celibacy campaign and tell kids that 50% of teenagers now have this new STD from oral sex, that's what they should be doing instead of trying to make kids gay. I just want to know why the liberals are pro-Muslim and pro-gay. Muslims kill gays. That's what's confusing to me. And the only thing I can come up with is that the Mulims hate God and the gays hate his word."


It sounds like Jackson's confused about a lot of things. But that's okay, we're a little confused too! For instance, why do people with an encyclopedic knowledge of the Bible, like Jackson, keep forgetting all that stuff about "love thy neighbor" and "judge not lest ye be judged"?

A Small Turnip

I've posted this before, but it's such a wonderful, gentle rebuttal to all of Jackson's bitter malevolence that I hope you'll forgive me for quoting it again. It's from an interview with the incomparably dreamy Darren Criss on filming those lovely kisses with Chris Colfer, and made me glow with warmth and affection. It might not get the likes of Victoria Jackson to cease spewing their bile, but it might help someone reading it to feel an infinitesimal bit better:

"A scene like that is something we've all been waiting for. And not even fans—the people who work on the show! I play the damn role and I was excited about it. It's easy when the groundwork is laid out so nicely and so well. The relationship is just plotted out perfectly to the point where you get to a scene like that and it's not this harrowing thing you've got to do, it's 'yep, now is the time'. And it was so special and so right and I just... I loved that whole day. It was very special for me."

Victoria Jackson doesn't get to hijack any conversation about homophobia for her own malicious ends. I won't let her.
