Former SNL Star, Victoria Jackson, Questions Murfreesboro Mosque

Victoria Jackson

I hope she’s trying to outdo Andy Kaufmann. This is not the first time Jackson spewed her anti-Muslim views.

Former SNL Star Questions Murfreesboro Mosque

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - She’s best known for her satirical comedy on Saturday Night Live. Twenty years after leaving the hit show, Victoria Jackson is back in the spotlight, but this time it’s for her political views.

She’s now a controversial conservative commentator and she’s in Middle Tennessee taking a critical look at the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.

Victoria Jackson is best known for her dim-witted characters on Saturday Night live which brought her a lot of laughs, and fame. She now works as a citizen journalist.

“I’m trying to use my fading SNL fame to shine a light on the topic that nobody in the media will talk about,” said Jackson.

That topic is Islam. Jackson came to Middle Tennessee to produce a story on the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro and its new mosque now under construction. The comic-turned- conservative political activist doesn’t mince words about why she thinks this building is rising in the middle of rural Tennessee.

“This is the Bible Belt, and Murfreesboro is the buckle on the bible belt. And it’s a college town. So my feeling is they came here to convert people to Islam,” said Jackson.

Jackson brought her camera to the current Islamic Center offices in Murfreesboro — but no one was available for an interview. No luck either at the construction site just outside town.

Jackson did recently interview Congressional candidate Lou Ann Zelenik for her story. Zelenik has been an outspoken opponent of the mosque. Jackson claims there’s a fatwa , or Islamic decree ,calling for her death because of her criticisms.

“I tolerate all religions. Except the ones that want to kill me,” said Jackson

Jackson plans to post her story on the conservative web site Patriot Update.

    Yes it is different. There are many kinds of socialism, Marxism is just one type. Socialism can be left-wing or right-wing. Marxism is left-wing. National Socialism is right-wing, much like our buddy Victoria Jackson up there. Wonder if she ever considered joining up.

    “I dont think everyone is bashing the left . Only the rich :)
    Nô where in the world is the power of the money to control the média more obvious than the USA
    Poor people convinced to vote against their own good by blatent lies , fear mongering And hysteria.”

    Sadly, I have to agree. It’s pitiful to watch people practically pick their executioners. It’s like watching them plan for their own funerals. What makes me angry is that they’re also planning ours too. I don’t want to die.

    And nothing makes the rich wet their pants like putting the power in the hands of the people.

    @ marco well spoken

    A fatwa is a religious ruling regarding a specific issue that has been raised.

    I doubt even Robert Spencer has a ‘Fatwa’ on him, so she must be kidding herself if she thinks she is important enuff to get one on her.

    Palestinian Says:

    Why is everyone bashing Communsts, Marxists, and those on the ultra-left?

    I don’t have a problem with them at all. I would most likely fall into one of those. I have no problem with Socialism at all as well.

    Marxism similar or different from Socialism?

  • Palestinian

    Marxism is similar, but there’s some differences.

    Why is everyone bashing Communsts, Marxists, and those on the ultra-left?

    Oh well…I’ve always had a saying….if you’re not catching flak, you’re not over the target.

    Guess we Marxists are DEFINITELY over the target!

    On an unrelated note, I don’t take any former actor seriously, especially if they’ve adopted right-wing positions. This woman has seriously over-extended her shelf-life as a celebrity. It crossed the threshhold of unfunny a long damn time ago.

  • Black Infidel

    Victoria Jackson is retarded.

    Since someone mention Communism, Is Marxism similar to it?

    Victoria Jackson of SNL joins the anti-Muslim crusade

    Victoria Jackson is cute. I like her dim-witted, squeaky-voice, dizzy-blonde persona. Last summer I saw her perform at one of the Tea Party events which took place out in the Opryland area in the parking lot of a sports bar. She sang a song that had a refrain in the chorus where she whispered the words, “there is a Communist in the White House.”

    I think calling President Obama a Communist is over the top. I never do it. “Communist” has a definite meaning. I know President Obama appointed self identified Communist Van Jones to a czarship and I know that President Obama has close ties to extreme leftist terrorist Dohrn and Ayers. Nevertheless, I would not myself call President Obama a Communist. Since he does have these close Communist ties however, and since the song was humorous, I did not feel offended by the song and I enjoyed Victoria Jackson’s performance.

    Now, Victoria Jackson has jumped on the anti-First Amendment bandwagon which wishes to deny Freedom of Religion to followers of the Islamic faith. I am not naive and I think radical Islam is a threat. However, the response to this threat of people who cherish American values should not be to take the position that American’s who follow the Islamic faith should be denied their rights as Americans. If Mosques are in-fact breading grounds for terrorist then that is a law enforcement problem.

    There are some dark blemishes on America’s historic treatment of minorities: the trail of tears removed culturally assimilated peaceful Indians to the west because white settlers wanted their land; in the Jim Crow south, all-white juries acquitted guilty Klansman for lynchings of Black Americans; and in World War II, we imprisoned 120,000 Japanese without trial because we suspected their loyalty.

    In all of these events many good people stood by and said nothing. I fear that some of the more rabid anti-Muslim activist, if they had their way would destroy all Mosque, force Muslims to convert to Christianity and imprison those who did not. Good people should not stand by and let bigotry grow to a dangerous levels. I am very disappointed when I see people who I otherwise think of as good people advocate denying Muslims their Constitutional rights. I am disappointing when I see people who I otherwise think of as intelligent take the view that all Muslims are Islamic radicals.

    This anti-Muslim campaign has unfortunately gained a foothold in the conservative movement. Many self-proclaimed Islamic experts are on the speaking circuit spreading fear and ignorance and on the internet preaching hate and there are no shortage of politicians who are willing to pander to the worst in people. This should not grow unchecked.

    In reading the comments that accompanied this story, I think Mark Rogers made a couple good observation:
    Victoria Jackson as a spokesman for anything is a better joke than any from her years on SNL
    Mrs. Zelnick as an expert on Islam? Does she read or speak Arabic? Has she read the Koran or any learned commentaries on it? Is she familiar with any histories of Islam not written by people who want to abolish the religion?
    Well said Mark.

    Has the look of ex lush ie alcoholic who got over it by going evangelical now she’s spouting what they brainwashed her
    Btw does she think building churches in Muslim countries is wrong? I doubt it

  • Reynardine

    When she portrayed dimwits, she wasn’t acting.

    @Amago

    By the way, I just sent a message to Coughlan616 suggesting that he PWN Victoria Jackson for her comments here. I think that will be hilarious if decides to do it.

    ““I’m trying to use my fading SNL fame to shine a light on the topic that nobody in the media will talk about,” said Jackson.”

    Translation (Bullshite [Media] to English [Standard]):

    ‘My show ran its course 20 years ago and I got my five minutes of fame, now I want more but I don’t want to put effort into it by doing something worthwhile. Instead I’m going to set myself up on Blogger as a ‘Journalist’ and jump on whatever bandwagon rolls past fastest and will get me back on TV.’

    This drives me so crazy, both as a Muslim, and as an American.

    I’ve read multiple times now, as it is expressed in this time article, that “Murfreesboro is a scant 30 miles south of Nashville which at the end of the first war in Iraq was designated a gateway city for refugees”

    So, Victoria, they aren’t there to “convert” or “train terrorists” but they are there because we invited them, pretty plain and simple.

  • Averroe’s Ghost

    I wantr to believe Victoria Jackson is just fronting a character and doesn’t believe this zany bull but everythin poingts to this actually being her opinion!
