Former ‘Saturday Night Live’ star Victoria Jackson blasts ‘Glee’

Comedian Victoria Jackson, who attended this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, made headlines over the weekend for her Friday column, “The Muslims Next Door,” in which she criticized the television program “Glee” for continuously promoting a socially liberal lifestyle.

The latest episode of “Glee” included comedian Kathy Griffin playing a Tea Party-inspired character and two gay male students sharing a much-anticipated kiss.

“Did you see ‘Glee’ this week? Sickening!” Jackson, a former “Saturday Night Live” star, wrote. “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?”

“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy has previously admitted that the show often casts conservatism in a negative light.

“We’ve taken a couple jabs at the right wing this year,” Murphy told TV Guide back in June. “So what I want to do with this character is have someone who Christian kids and parents can recognize and say, ‘Oh, look — I’m represented there, too!’ If we’re trying to form a world of inclusiveness, we’ve got to include that point of view as well.”

In the most recent episode of “Glee”, Griffin wore glasses and a red outfit, apparently parodying former Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin and former Republican Delaware Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell.

“Well, boys shouldn’t do a duet,” Griffin’s character said. “The last thing we need to do is send a message to children that gay is okay. I am a politician and when I lost my last election — and there will be a recount — I didn’t go around singing about being a loser, I Twittered that Obama is a terrorist.”

    Well isn’t this nice? A religious fanatic talks about her disgust in a gay kiss on tv and now all her equally crazed fanatics are commenting as fast as there jesus-loving fingers can go to defend her. I’m not going to sugarcoat my beleifs on the fairy tale that is religion, nor am I going to try and quote verses from the great big book of lies to justify that “god loves everyone” or “it doesnt say anything about homosexuals in the bible”. Heres the truth: God DOESNT EXIST. Anybody hear me? Religion is just a tribal fetish that should have died centuries ago. Unfortunately people today still believe it, as if it can actually be considered FACTS. Jackson should pose no threat to the gay community being she’s just a drone sent to do the will of the religiously impared. Some of these comments are, no surprise, contradictory to there writers so called beliefs. ” How about shoing people going to the bathroom? Don’t think it’s appropriate? Well stop hating – its natural.” This is the argument of the lunatics. Comparing homosexuality to using the bathroom. Clearly this is from the minds of the mentally unstable. First off if your going to moan about a kiss between men on tv being to innpropriate or disgusting for tv then really go out there and complain about all the REAL INNAPROPRIATE things on tv these days. Now why won’t you do that? Well clearly two guys kissing is the worst … morons. And apparently some of you commenters have discovered the secret to Hollywood’s gay agenda. To add gay characters to a “widly” successful series to bring it “down the toilet”. Clearly when the writers of these series wrote the shows they were unaware of the secret plot to exploit gays on tv! Good job Batman!… bigger morons. I don’t understand the disgust part that so many crazed lunatics seem to have towards gay kissing or the fear of having their kids “exposed” to such things. As if you breeders aren’t known for some crazy and disgusting things aswell. Oh wait I forgot being gay is a disease thats passed on visually and if viewed by a child, then he or she will become one of them. Ok I get it now …. fucking morons. It appears that, when really analyzed, any arguement made against gay people is either a contradictive statement or wildly idiotic with no actual reason, whatsoever. I guess as long as tribal fetishes exist, so will idiots. That actually sparked an idea. A world without religion. Thats a world without war, discrimination, hatred. A world of peace and reality. Now that sounds like paradise. Unfortunately you lunatics are hard to kill off so I guess I’ll just sit at home and continue to watch Blaine and Kurt finally kiss. Did you see it yet? Very passionate I might add.

    God bless Victoria Jackson. Two guys kissing is utterly grotesque. How low will the classless producers of this show stoop to attract attention to their odious ode to girly men? How about showing people going to the bathroom? Don’t think it’s appropriate? Well, stop hating – it’s natural.

    • R.W. Mendez

      Oh how original. You think all gay guys are girly (that would be the only thing I’ll blame Hollywoof for, is the annoyance that is the stereotypical gay guy). Oh and your a believer in the nonexistent. And your comparing the kissing scene to showing people using the bathroom…. Wait I forgot, whose the classless person? You want to know whats “utterly grotesque”? The amount of parasites, like youself, there really are out there. It makesme sick to my stomache. You really think your better then gay people? You think gay people are weak? No surprise that you sound like just another mindless drone dong the will of the nonexistent being…. Your an idiot. Stop hating – it’s natural.

    okay, well I COMPLETELY disagree with everything Victoria Jackson has said about the show “Glee”. I realize that people are entitled to their own opinions, but the way she states her opinions sound more like she believes they’re facts. They’re not. If you don’t like the show “Glee” because of the content, then my advice is to not watch it. DUH!!! Victoria Jackson, you are not perfect! Deal with it, and stop acting like you know everything! I am 14 years old, and I am proud to say that I am a liberal. I personaly love the show, and yes, I do have a lot of gay friends. I love them, and I see how hard theyre lives are everyday. No one chooses to go through something like that. “Glee” shows the real struggles of teenagers. The show covers being an outcast, being gay, feeling awkward, not fitting in, being over-weight, and just feeling out of place. The show is fun, and its not harming anyone. There is nothing at all wrog with liberals, we make our own opinions. Now do you see what it’s like to have your opinions disrespected? Think about it.

    Why do some “liberals” feel the need to pass judgment on the lifestyles of others merely because they don’t agree with their personal decisions? Shut up and mind your own business, if some people find happiness out of protesting out-of-control government spending, just leave them alone. Imposing socialism on the general public is preventing the MSDNC from gaining the wide coalition they need to achieve legitimate reforms in government entitlement. Bitching and moaning about a lifestyle you don’t like just makes you seem like an insecure advocate of the government nanny-state.

    Forget their insipid moralizing (what do you expect from Hollywood?), the biggest reason to stop watching “Glee” is because that show SUCKS! Aside from the presence of Jane Lynch, who is always very funny, that is one of the worst productions on television. “Hey, everybody! I know! We can put on a show!” It’s as if they wanted to resurrect all those Rooney-Garland musicals, but their writing staff isn’t quite as good as that. Truly dreadful. Even worse than “Two and a Half Men.”

      How about they stop imposing immorality ? Of course they won’t, that’s all they know.

      Do you think maybe just maybe it is Glee doing the moralizing?

    So they cast Kathy Griffin as the right-wing Christian? Riiiiiiight. What a crock, the show obviously has no intent of presenting a right-wing viewpoint. The characters are all caricatures. The music is good, but that makes for good radio, not good television.
