Victoria Jackson, Former 'SNL' Comedian, Calls For 'White History Month'

Victoria Jackson, former "Saturday Night Live" comedian turned ultra-conservative gadfly, delivered a rant on Thursday in which she targeted "Black History Month" and suggested that whites ought to create their own annual celebration.

"Now, that the white race is becoming a minority in America, perhaps we need to make ... say, January, White History month," she wrote on her website, according to the political blog Wonkette.

Jackson later took down her screed, but Wonkette and the Hollywood Reporter reported most of it.

Jackson wrote that America's decline parallels the end of white men's dominance, then offered this:

'Find a white, middle-aged Christian man today and hug him. And then, encourage him and your white Christian sons to stand up, be leaders again, and save our country from the God-hating communists like Alec Baldwin and Obama."

None of the above should come as a surprise; Jackson, 53, is decades removed from her show business glory at "SNL" but has found a new public platform in venting controversial beliefs.

Among other recent declarations, Jackson agreed with a friend's statement equating the Sandy Hook killer with doctors who do abortions, defended Rep. Todd Akin's views on rape by saying she would be "blessed" to have a child whose father raped her, and blasted the gay characters on "Glee."

She wasn't a big fan of Occupy Wall Street, either.
