Kari Lake will disavow gay-bashing antisemite or the election is over

Arizona will seldom have moments of clarity like this, so let’s get to the brutal facts.

Opinion: If Lake doesn’t rescind her endorsement of Jarrin Jackson, she’ll provide proof-positive she is unfit for governor.

By Phil Boas || Arizona Republic

One of our two-major party candidates for governor has just endorsed a man who hates Jewish people, despises gay people and wants no Black or brown immigrants in this country.

Jarrin Jackson is no casual bigot. He has produced such a stream of internet bile he can only be seen as a committed anti-Semite, homophobe and racist – one of the most vile people in political life, unfit for government and unwelcome in polite society.

And yet Jarrin Jackson, Republican candidate for the Oklahoma state Senate, tweeted on Wednesday that he has won the endorsement of Kari Lake, Arizona Republican candidate for governor. There he was photoshopped together with the smiling Lake, two peas in a tweet.

“I am honored to be endorsed by the #AmericaFirst (and Trump-endorsed) warrior who drained the McCain swamp in Arizona and is now the GOP nominee for governor in Arizona – Kari Lake. She is a rising star and her endorsement is a big deal! Thank you, Kari!”

The damning evidence of a fevered mind

Nearly a full month before Jackson announced his Kari Lake endorsement, reporter Carmen Forman of our sister paper The Oklahoman provided an expansive view of Jackson’s fevered mind.

On the social media app Telegram and other forums, Jackson said:

  • * Using the phrase LGBTQ “is using language designed by Satan.”
  • * “LGBTQ is the gateway to pedophilia.”
  • * “Call me old fashioned, but I don’t want a society of homosexuals.”
