E.W. Jackson, the ignorant buffoon who unsuccessfully ran for lt. governor of Virginia last year, joined the chorus of utterly clueless right wingers claiming that Dylann Roof murdered nine people in Charleston not because he was a racist but because he was targeting Christians.
Anti-gay pastor and Fox News contributor E.W. Jackson said yesterday that people shouldn’t “jump to conclusions” that the Charleston shooting was “some sort of racial hate crime.”
Instead, Jackson told radio host John Fredericks that the shooting may have been a result of the “growing hostility and antipathy to Christianity and what this stands for, the biblical worldview about sexual morality and other things.”
As Steve Silberman said on Twitter:
Claiming the #CharlestonShooting was an "attack on faith" is like claiming the Boston bombing was an attack on jogging.
