A former "Saturday Night Live" star has sparked outrage over an an essay she posted online calling for a "White History Month" and labelling U.S. president Barack Obama and actor Alec Baldwin “communists."
In a column posted to her personal website, Victoria Jackson, who spent the late ‘80s and early ‘90s on “Saturday Night Live” complained about Black History Month and suggested having a month set aside for Caucasians.
“Why is there a Black History Month but not a White History Month? Now, that the white race is becoming a minority in America, perhaps we need to make...say, January, White History Month,” she wrote.
She also lamented over the direction she felt the United States was heading, blaming the media for portraying white people in a negative light.
"I’m just really tired of the white male, and especially the white conservative, Christian male being attacked in cartoons, movies, TV shows, politics, Affirmative Action, etc." she wrote.
Jackson then went on to list all the inventions by white men who she claims are the "the backbone and originators of the greatest nation on earth."
"Just for the record, white men invented rockets, space travel, airplanes, the automobile, the English language, the U.S.A., most medical advances, electricity, television, telescope, microscope, Ivy League Universities, the computer, the Internet, and on and on. I think white men should be praised and respected. White Christian Conservative Men especially, should be loved and adored."
Before signing off, Jackson also took some time to name-call the president and a “30 Rock” actor.
“Save our country from the God-hating communists like Alec Baldwin and Obama."
The actress has since taken down the post.
This isn’t the first time Jackson has angered people with her radical views. She has also come out against homosexuality, immigration, and yes, even the TV show “Glee”.
