E.W. Jackson: Obamas are Communist Sympathizers Who Promote the 'Liberal Plantation of Psychological Bondage'

Back in 2010, Virginia Republican Lt. Gov. nominee E. W. Jackson appeared on The Janet Mefferd Show to discuss First Lady Michelle Obama’s speech at the NAACP National Convention. Jackson and Mefferd were peeved by Obama’s remark that “when stubborn inequalities still persist -- in education and health, in income and wealth -- I think [NAACP’s] founders would urge us to increase our intensity, and to increase our discipline and our focus and keep fighting for a better future for our children and our grandchildren,” which Jackson said he found “disturbing” and that “whenever I hear this there is an ugly word that always comes to mind and that ugly word is Communism.”

Jackson claimed that President Obama and the First Lady “don’t understand our country, I don’t think they even like it,” warning that the Obamas are “the intellectual cousins and heirs of a Communist, collectivist way of thinking which is anathema to what this country is all about.”

He said he intends to ask black voters why they are “allowing the Tea Party to be made into your enemy and the radical homosexual rights people to be made into your friends and allies when they reject everything you believe and most of the Tea Party activists embrace everything you believe.” Jackson urged African Americans to “come out of that indoctrination, what I call a liberal plantation of psychological bondage.”

Jackson also lashed out at the NAACP, which he said has “completely lost its credibility,” and other civil rights groups as “race baiters.” He said that if NAACP activists were truly worshiping “the God of the Bible then they ought to be in agreement with the Tea Party.”
