Update: After several days of much publicized criticism, Kari Lake has reportedly not clarified whether or not she still endorses Jackson or has clearly rescinded her support of the labeled antisemite

People are reportedly still waiting for Kari Lake to publicly rescind her endorsement of Jarrin Jackson, a labeled antisemite and anti-LGBTQ Oklahoma state senate candidate.

Lake reportedly said on Saturday that, “If his reported comments are true,” to an Axios reporter,  “I obviously rescind my endorsement.”

But it has not been reported that Ms. Lake has said anything further about whether or not the Lake campaign found the reported Jarrin Jackson comments to be true—and therefore rescind her endorsement—or if Lake would clarify whether or not she has denounced the  endorsement of Jackson.

Northeast Valley News has not been contacted by the Lake campaign for a requested response.

Jackson’s rants online and at his rallies have included rhetoric that is “graphically” offensive to members of the communities he targets—and the language is often described as “hateful.”

Reports of his antisemitism remarks and depictions of other targeted communities of people have been on the record in various publications and for many months or longer.

After numerous reports of  individuals who have made antisemite remarks reportedly endorsing Kari Lake— or as recent as last week, Lake’s own reported endorsement of Jarrin Jackson—one might wonder about where Lake stands.

The GOP gubernatorial candidate has taken harsh criticism over the weekend for her endorsement that was posted on Wednesday, of the Oklahoma Republican proudly proclaiming his endorsement by Kari Lake.

Jackson is far from unapologetic in his views toward Jews.

An organization StopAnitsemitism on Twitter has listed Jarrin Jackson, among others as antisemite.

In a Telegram post that referenced another Telegram user, Jackson reportedly said, “all Jews will go to hell if they don’t believe the gospel of Jesus Christ…just like everybody else.”

The watchdog media group Media Matters for America, reported that Jackson appears to list Jews as an example that “evil exists”

Last November, CNN reported that Lake posed at a campaign event with Nazi sympathizer, Greyson Arnold who “has a history of making White nationalist, racist, antisemitic pro-Nazi statements,” including once calling Adolf Hitler “a complicated historical figure which many people misunderstood.”

Jackson’s Twitter profile reads, “Christian, family man, Army vet, Biz owner” but Jackson has made repeated bigoted comments about Jews and LGBTQ Americans according to reports from his own state’s largest newspaper.
