E.W. Jackson said that if Ken Cuccinelli could have more than one term as governor, he’d back ending the tax as well.

Left-wing liberals claim to be very tolerant and inclusive, but they are in fact some of the most intolerant and mean-spirited people around. They continually demonize anyone who dares to disagree with them, and are especially ugly and nasty toward those who have other viewpoints and dare to stick to them.
If there was any lingering doubt about how intolerant and mean-spirited liberals are, it was erased by the latest rant from The Roanoke Times (“Va. Republicans turn far right”, May 21 editorial). The Times is apparently incensed that Virginia Republicans had the temerity to nominate a slate of The Times-hated conservatives at the recent Republican Party of Virginia statewide convention in Richmond.
Listen to the venom spewing forth from The Times against the conservative candidates that emerged from this convention: “nominating a dogmatic ticket,” “full of tea party bombast,” “empty of ideas for responsible leadership,” “His [Ken Cucinelli’s] confrontational style,” “doctrinaire conservatives,” “chaotic convention,” “outrageous rants,” “raise questions about his fitness for office,” “stunning intolerance.”
The most vicious invective is directed toward the Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, E.W. Jackson.
That’s because my friend Jackson is what liberal extremists fear and despise the most: an articulate, accomplished black man who is an unabashed conservative and who makes a point of exposing the failures and false promises of liberalism.
Let’s take a look at the man, E.W. Jackson, that has The Roanoke Times foaming at the mouth: proud veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, graduate of Harvard Law School, practiced small business law for 15 years, founded a nondenominational Christian church in Chesapeake, owned and managed a radio station for 10 years, married 42 years with three children.
His campaign platform includes a taxpayer bill of rights, promoting small businesses, promoting parental choice in education, ending unfunded mandates on local governments and limiting the size of the government.
One would think that liberals who profess incessantly to be on a mission to help black people would rejoice at the nomination of a black man for statewide office. But instead, the liberals attack him. That’s because of liberal duplicity. They don’t want just any black man getting ahead and being in the spotlight, they want only the right kind of black man, a liberal black man who will push liberal causes.
Other blacks need not apply, as far as the liberals are concerned, because they pose a threat to the liberal dogma that people, especially minorities, can’t succeed without massive help from the government. Jackson and others like him blow that notion out of the water, and that’s why liberals can’t tolerate them.
They pose a threat to liberalism, and so they must be taken out.
