Actress Makes Homophobic 'Glee' Comments

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Victoria Jackson may have earned her fame as a comedian, but her recent comments on "Glee" are no laughing matter.

The former "Saturday Night Live" star, now an outspoken political conservative, hit out at the high school choir dramedy in a homophobic rant in her new column for the conservative WorldNetDaily.com. Jackson wrote:

Did you see "Glee" this week? Sickening! And, besides shoving the gay thing down our throats, they made a mockery of Christians – again! I wonder what their agenda is? Hey, producers of "Glee" – what's your agenda? One-way tolerance?

In the most recent episode of the show, there was a long awaited kiss between two gay characters, Kurt (played by Golden Globe winner Chris Colfer) and Blaine, and Kathy Griffin played a religious, tea party political candidate, modeled after Sarah Palin.

Jackson's comments came after a string of anti-Muslim and Arab diatribe, and immediately following her saying:

This new al-Qaida magazine for women has beauty tips and suicide-bomber tips! Gimme a break! That is as ridiculous as two men kissing on the mouth! And I don't care what is politically correct. Everyone knows that two men on a wedding cake is a comedy skit, not an "alternate lifestyle"! There I said it! Ridiculous!

Jackson has become known for her outspoken, and often controversial, conservative political statements. In 2009, on a Fox News panel, she said, "My motivation is gone, because [Obama] will punish me if I'm successful. That's how you start communism, is just take -- Cuba. Obama wants to be Castro."

That appearance followed a 2008 onslaught from Jackson, who went after both a campaigning Obama, but former "SNL" cast mate Al Franken. Writing about Obama, Jackson said that Obama, "bears traits that resemble the anti- Christ." She also accused him of close friendships with "Communists, domestic and Muslim terrorists, racists and convicted felons."
