“Firefighter prophet” Mark Taylor, the subject of the Liberty University-connected film The Trump Prophecy, said on a podcast this week that high-profile Democrats will be murdered in the streets if Donald Trump doesn’t carry out mass arrests next year.
And why would a guy who claims that Satan is using chemtrails to block people from experiencing God lie to us?
“What the Lord has shown me is that if they wait too long,” he said, “it could be another Mogadishu or another Benghazi, where the patriots will rise up and say, ‘Enough is enough,’ and they will take matters into their own hands and they will drag their dead bodies through the streets. They will go to these politicians’ houses or offices and drag them out.”
“The people are not asking for justice, they are demanding it, so the government has to act,” Taylor added. “They need to make probably one or two high-level arrests, high-profile arrests, perp walk them on national television so that people will see that justice is going to be done. They have got to make the arrests before January if they are going to make them this year, because if [Trump] arrests anyone after January when campaign season starts, it’s going to make it look like he’s just arresting those that oppose him. So they have a window of time between now and the end of the year to make these arrests. That is what God has shown me as far as this timeline.”
I’m not sure why Taylor thinks Trump arresting his political opponents (over nothing) would be perfectly reasonable… as long as it happens in the next few months. After that, it would just be seen as a political stunt.
It’s ironic that a Trump supporting preacher is so eager to see “justice,” given that those people never seem to use it when describing the refugee kids in cages, wrongfully separated from their asylum-seeking parents, or the families of people slaughtered in gun violence month after month.
This is hardly the first time that Republican conspiracy theorists have made wild predictions, claiming to come from God, that never actually happened.
When this “prophecy” fails to come true, you can bet that Taylor will avoid taking responsibility for unnecessarily stirring the pot — again.
