On his radio program today, Religious Right activist E.W. Jackson said that if he lived in Alabama, he would vote for Roy Moore despite the fact that he has some concerns about the multiple allegations that Moore pursued sexual relationships with teenage girls when he was in his 30s. Among the reasons Jackson gave for continuing to support Moore is that “you don’t ever want to give these leftists another head to mount on their mantel.”
Jackson, who announced today that he will be ending his daily radio program next week, presumably in preparation to make his own run for the U.S. Senate from Virginia, said that liberals would literally murder conservatives if they could get away with it.
“There is no need in pretending that part of the issue is you don’t ever want to give these leftists another head to mount on their mantel,” he said. “They’re head-hunters, they like to destroy people, they like to destroy Christian conservatives, particularly. They’re filled with hatred and animosity and they love killing folks. I’m serious, folks. I think a lot of ’em would kill people physically if they thought they could get away with it, but they can’t, for the most part; they don’t want to go to jail so what they do is they try to kill people metaphorically, destroy them, destroy their reputation, destroy their career, destroy their livelihood, just make them suffer.”
“That’s the kind of hatred they have for people of my ilk,” Jackson continued. “That’s the kind of hatred they have for people who are conservatives, people who are Christians, people who are identified with the right side of the political spectrum—and I mean ‘right’ as in ‘correct.’ So you don’t ever want to give them any kind of concession and that is part of the equation here, it just is, because you know they lie and you know they make stuff up and you know they will destroy people if they can and it doesn’t matter to them.”
