E.W. Jackson, the radio host and failed politician last seen saying Pete Buttigieg wants to turn the nation into a “homocracy,” now insists that liberal activists would murder Christians if we had the opportunity.
He made the remarks on his radio show “The Awakening” on Friday.
Right… the same people who call for gun safety, religious equality, and abolishing the death penalty — when we’re not arguing between vegetarianism and veganism — somehow harbor a secret desire to murder people who believe in Jesus.
“I really believe this with all my heart,” Jackson said. “I’m serious. I believe that if the right circumstances presented itself, people on the left would kill us. I’m not saying all of them, but many of them would kill us because their hatred is so deep, it is so profound, it is so toxic that I think they would rationalize it to themselves that the world would be a better place [without Christians] … and so, in killing them, we do the world a favor.”
This is a right-wing fever dream. They’re so desperate to play the victim so they insist their opponents are out to execute them.
For what it’s worth, left-wing activists are currently working on voting rights and progressive legislation. We’re not stockpiling weapons while awaiting orders from eventual President Ocasio-Cortez.
It’s ironic that Jackson, of all people, fears violence from the other side given that he’s advocated for it himself. Right Wing Watch’s Kyle Mantyla points out that Jackson said in 2017 that he “would really need the grace of God not to jump on that person and try to beat them into the ground” if he ever saw someone handing his son a piece of literature “encouraging my child to be gay.” (Because that’s how it works, don’t you know.)
