"While they remembered her sincere Christian beliefs, some wondered whether Victoria Jackson, Tea Partier, was some sort of Andy Kaufman-style performance art."

"'A lot of people in show business think I’ll pull off my mask and say, "Ha-ha! I tricked you! Of course I won’t be a stupid conservative Christian,"' says Jackson."
“She seems to take it seriously while not taking it that seriously,” says Sweeney Blum. “She clearly likes the laughs and she likes getting the laughs enough that she doesn’t mind being laughed at, while at the same time, she truly seems to like the things she’s saying. Every time I have an encounter with Victoria, I have so much thinking to do afterwards.”

Fringe. Only word that matters here. She's fringe. Her positions are fringe. Has any liberal performer had their positions labeled fringe?

TML said...

All of her positions are perfectly respectable and debatable by sane people. How are they fringe in any way? Oh, because Salon doesn't approve. OK.

Rocketeer said...

The phrase "and it hurts my head so much" is implied.

One sentence from the article:

"Victoria came out as a Jesus lover."

The love that dare not speak its name?

Is this a theme post with Rand Paul is a kook?

Victoria Jackson makes me cringe, and then feel guilty for cringing.

stewati said...

If you take a look at the comments to that story, you'll notice the extremely mean spirited tone. I thought liberals were nice? I detect much more hatefulness and intolerance from the left than I do from the right. Maybe I need to get out more.

In the article her views are called "outrageous" and "extreme."

“It’s not popular to tell the truth anymore. Truth is hate speech. If you tell people what the Koran actually says, you’re called a hate monger.”

Whatever you think is right or true, do and believe the opposite. You will either live at home with your parents or you will be the assistant to the traveling secretary for the New York Yankees.

Amartel said...

'Gorillas in the Mist' journalism from Clueless Lefty Salon. OMG, there's a division between her onstage persona and her off-stage beliefs! OMG, she talks about the Bible, how weird! OMG, there's Republicans in showbiz other than Clint Eastwood and that other guy whatsisname, you know, the old guy they always wheel out. OMG, I actually liked her.
It's all just so puzzling.

Pettifogger said...

"Every time I have an encounter with Victoria, I have so much thinking to do afterwards."

How do lefties reconcile that statement with the assertion that she is fringe?

Amartel said...

"Victoria Jackson makes me cringe, and then feel guilty for cringing."

Same. Fringe cringe guilt. She's not really fringe but she doesn't articulate well. Her persona is a ditzy one in real life too.

Amartel said...

If she was a lefty she'd be celebrated for being ironically ditzy. Her intellect would not be called into question. It wouldn't matter if she was saying the right things.

Amartel said...

"I detect much more hatefulness and intolerance from the left than I do from the right."

Lefties are "good" so they can only say good things about protected grievance groups. Unless a member of the grievance group breaks out of their box and says something conservative. Then, it's on, bitch. All that pent up rage comes vomitting forth. Bill Maher has built an entire career around it.

Liberals like conservatives that laugh at their jokes, but wouldn't dare laugh at conservative's jokes. A conservative making a joke triggers the modern liberal into fits of anger and violence.

SJ said...

Well, I did notice that she's quoted as saying that earlier death means an earlier ticket to Heaven.

Despite all the Biblical stuff about praying for healing. (Was that better than medicine at the time? Ask that guy Luke, he was a physician and a Gospel-writer.)

However, I notice that no one asks the question of whether the proposed Liberal/Progressive solution to health care problems will actually increase the availability of health care service.

Insurance is not service.

And government functionaries making sure that hospital clerks fill out the forms properly doesn't always change the quality or availability of medical services from the doctors employed by those hospitals.

But both people on that conversation were members of the entertainment industry. People not usually thought of as deep thinkers.

Which makes me wonder: why does anyone pay attention to their opinions?

traditionalguy said...

Victoria is not ashamed of the Gospel. It is natural and true, so why should others feel shame for her?

No reason at all.

bpm4532 said...

For liberals, tolerance is a one-way street.

I kind of relate to Victoria's ditziness.:)

Nonapod said...

I too find her somewhat cringeworthy even though I probably agree with her far more than I disagree. She's the type of right winger that's used for confirmation bias by the left; as in "See, they're all a bunch of loons like her".

Hear about the poll workers indicted in OH?

One voted 6 times.

Then there was the scheme to illegally register 11,000 people in NC, along with the 30,000 dead guys they already registered.

Funny how the Romster was expecting to win and Zero had a concession speech all ready.

But then the man made of dumbshit's boy is having such a swell second term, so far.

Why can't she be within the respectable limits of her profession?

Like raping a 13 year old.

Or, being a coke-head.

Or supporting a left-wing tyrant.

Or believing that our own government planned & executed 9-11.

Can't she just fit within the large pool of nutjobbery available to her? Sheesh!

Jake Diamond said...

"One voted 6 times."

Hey, that's nearly the same size as Obama's margin of victory! We need a recount!

It's good to see that edumbshit is still the number 1 Althouse right wing conspiracy freak. He seems to have a tight grip on that title.

dbp said...

Ms. Jackson, in the parts she plays and apparently in real life, is sweet, full of life and love. So she can't really believe all those "hateful" things she says. That is the liberal line of reason and it makes a lot of sense. Except for one problem: Victoria does does believe what she says.

I would like to invite those who are stuck on this conundrum to imagine something--just try, it won't kill you.

There are lots of people who find what she says perfectly reasonable. And no. They don't care what "their betters" think of them, just as you do not care what they think of you.

dreams said...

“They’re sitting there steaming a little bit, and all of the sudden Al leans forward and says, ‘Victoria, surely as a Christian you care about people’s health care, surely you would believe in that.’ And Victoria says, ‘Well, if people died sooner, people will go to Heaven sooner.’

Yeah, we conservatives say that all the time, I don't know why we conservatives can't be good liberals.

And it's nice to see the man made of dumbshit subscribes joyously to the dictum that his people can't win without vote fraud.

Admitting the problem is always the first step.

Say, how 'bout that sequester? Barry's handling it just great, isn't he?

Marines told to count every bullet while the Empress invites Bouncy and Adele to her $1.4B birthday orgy.

And thinking Obama is a communist is just so mean and hateful, saying it, is hate speech.

It seemed to me that the whole article was kind of like a satire.

Synova said...

Someone pulling the "and you, a christian!" card to push their secular agenda deserves that response.

Still, I find it a rather shocking statement until I think about it a bit and realize that I long ago decided that God probably doesn't get all worried about the lengths of our lives the way that we do. Why would He?

Synova said...

"Marines told to count every bullet while the Empress invites Bouncy and Adele to her $1.4B birthday orgy."

Empress, indeed.

Just to put that into perspective.

It might be a smallish lander but still.

Denying this poses a knot for liberals. Communism is a greater threat? They didn't even believe that when the Soviet Union existed.

It's not mean or hateful or hate speech. What it is is delusional.

"That supposes that either is a threat, and neither is."

The non-existance of the World Trade Center says that the threat is non-zero.

The article was clearly a liberal hit job, you would have to be a flaming liberal to think otherwise, the over the top characterization of conservatives.

Why are you posting crap from Salon? What's next, something from dailykos?

Believing that Jesus walked the Earth and is the son of God, makes you a stoopid, mock-worthy, dummy.

But believing an Assault Weapons Ban will reduce crime, unemployment benefits create jobs, the globe is warming due to mankind, ObamaCare bends the cost curve down (and you get to keep your doctor!) and all US education needs is more funding, makes you smart, informed, and totally logical.

Not on the fringe of anything dammit!

Robert Cook said...

"The non-existance of the World Trade Center says that the threat is non-zero."

The non-existence of the World Trade Center is the result of criminal terrorists. It does not indicate a danger to us from Islam.

@Robert Cook,

What you have done here, Robert, is essentially to pull the lefty trick of false consciousness on a mass scale here.

North Korea, China, & Cuba call themselves communist regimes. All are in one way or another, threats to the US.

The Salafist movements are all Islamic. They call themselves Islamic. Their fellow Muslims who are not Salafist do not say they are heretics, but that they are too extreme.

But you, you decide, based on criteria you have pulled out of your ass, to redefine language and claim that whatever these folks may call themselves, well, you know better.

You know what? Conservatives really are better at listening., because, by golly, when their opponents call themselves Muslims or Commies, they actually believe them.

Jay said...

Robert Cook said...

Yes!
Especially if you go about believing the "criminal terrorists" didn't do it in the name of Islam, and a bunch of Muslims around the world weren't celebrating when those towers fell down.

Goof.

Jake Diamond said...

"Nothing to good for the Empress"

Yes, edumbshit, you're a very sad man. Did you experience pleasure or pain when you pulled from your ass the figure of $1.4 billion for a birthday party?

And of course, in your fantasy world, Mittens won the election, so at least everyone can see that your delusions continue unabated.

Synova said...

The other number I've found is $3M.

Still outrageous.

Jay said...

Jake Diamond probably reinforces his silly, ignorant beliefs by tittering at christian conservatives who don't accept that the Earth isn't 5 billion years old. While simultaneously pretending a 20 year warming trend (if you accept the bullshit temperature data fed to the computers) of a 5 billion + year old planet, and one that has completely stopped, indicates an environmental catastrophe in the making.

Of course Jakie don't do logic.

Logic requires thinking.

Thinking too hard for Jakie.

But as to the science, yes, the greenhouse effect is a well understood scientific process. Even the relatively few scientists who doubt global warming accept the science underpinning the greenhouse effect. Only batshit crazy nutjobs deny the greenhouse effect.

Wouldn't it be fun to offer Jakie a grand prize - say $10,000,000 - to explain the scientific method, then factually articulate which parts of the "greenhouse effect" were tested using the scientific method and when and where this happened, for the grand prize?

If stupid were sold like hamburgers Jakie would have golden arches over his head....

AGAIN, you can't make this level of stupid up, folks.

Jay said...

Um, no, no it isn't.

The greenhouse effect is actually phenomenon whereby the earth's atmosphere traps solar radiation, caused by the presence in the atmosphere of gases such as carbon dioxide, water vapor, and methane that allow incoming sunlight to pass through but absorb heat radiated back from the earth's surface.

A "scientific process" is not a term you understand.

Idiot.

YoungHegelian said...

@Jay/Ed

It really is amazing how stupid JD is for someone who thinks he's otherwise.

When challenged with documentary evidence from reputable sources that things aren't quite what he thinks, he doubles & triples down with a bare repetition of his assertion.

Most folks who are that stupid have some sense of their limitations. Not our JD. He just runs out into the public square & makes sure the world knows.

Jake Diamond said...

It's truly amusing to watch the science deniers wet themselves as they race to post links. Hey, don't forget the links to the opinions of high school graduate Anthony Watts, fraudster and politician Christopher Monckton, english literature graduate James Delingpole, feminist Donna Laframboise, lawyer James Taylor, and all those other great self-appointed climate science "experts." After all, who understands science better than some libertarian goofs who have designated themselves scientific experts?

Jake Diamond said...

Bwahahahahahahaha! A minority report by Inhofe is a reputable scientific source? Hilarious!

Nice disguise, Jake Diamond, though utterly transparent to me.

Jake Diamond said...

In case any of the Althouse boneheads want to understand the greenhouse effect, here's a link to Roy Spencer's blog and an article in which he explains the physical process.

Note: Roy Spencer is a so-called skeptic.

Enjoy! (And don't forget to come back and tell me why Roy Spencer doesn't understand physics!)

chickelit said...

How many other Althouse lefties besides Jake comment exclusively on AGW, gay marriage, GWB, and race issues--and consistently do so in a rude, over-the-top fashion?

Why even bother to change disguises, Jake?

It is also comical (and instructive) Jakie has proudly revealed he can't distinguish between what liberals assert is man made global warming and the phenomena of a greenhouse heating up.

Jakie is like the neighborhood slow, drooling imbecile

Jake Diamond said...

P.S. Currently you are the most sane right winger in this thread. Congratulations.

YoungHegelian said...

@JD,

Did you read what's at your link?

No one hear denies that the Earth's atmosphere has C02, methane, water vapor, etc that cause a greenhouse effect on the climate. It's hard to believe that there would be life on Earth is this were not the case.

What we are denying is that

1) The scientific case for AGW is airtight.

2) That there is no meaningful dissent on the topic of AGW within the scientific community.

Can you even see basic logical distinctions?

I'm done with this & you. You're a waste of time for this forum.

Jay said...

And of course Jakie goes all garage mahal and links to something that doesn't say what he claims it does.

I'm shocked by this.
Really, I am

Jake Diamond said...

In Jay's bubble, scientists are called liberals? That's an interesting development.

Jay said...

So to recap I sarcastically said if you believe the earth is warming you are all smart and informed and Jakie replied I don't believe in the greenhouse effect. As if the greenhouse effect = global warming.

To top it off, Jakie then linked to a blog post where the author asserted that "the greenhouse effect" as liberals like Jakie use the term is a misnomer because the earth isn't a greenhouse.

You can't make this up people....

In other words, your claim that these folks hold reasonable, sound, scientific objections to AGW is garbage. They're simply science deniers.

Apparently Batshit Crazy Jay doesn't understand what the word "misnomer" means. Moreover he must have incredibly poor reading comprehension if he doesn't understand that Spencer was defending the existence of the earth's greenhouse effect. Of course the title of the article "In Defense of the Greenhouse Effect" might have served as a hint to Batshit Crazy Jay, but I guess he's slower than even I thought.

I suppose this may depend on your definition of the scientific community.

In meteorology, any meaningful dissent is limited to very specific individuals nibbling away at the edges of some of the reports and scientific writings. I agree that this small subset of people does not invalidate your statement that there is no meaningful dissent. It seems like a thin gruel to me though.

Always loved Victoria, thought she was very funny Comedic actress. Problem is she needs someone to write her jokes.

Stop arguing with Mr Diamond. He has a right to his religion and we shouldn't be making fun of him for relying on appeals to authority for his beliefs. After all, some people believe the Bible is literally true.

Had Victoria Jackson has been treated shows the difference between the Right and the Left. The Left will pay to see some unfunny asshole and laugh at his jokes even when they're unfunny. Cf: Bill 'the dog-faced boy' Maher and Roseanne.

Victoria says, ‘Well, if people died sooner, people will go to Heaven sooner.’

Well, regardless of the merits and demerits of the above point of view, it's not my sense that Christians in general wish, or think they should wish, that people would just die sooner — but beyond that, it's abiblical. The New Testament clearly states that Christian dead will sleep until the sounding of the horn of judgment (e.g., 1 Thessalonians 5:14-17).
