Mark Taylor, the so-called “firefighter prophet” and the subject of the Liberty University-connected film The Trump Prophecy, said a few months ago that Barack Obama needed to be executed for treason.
He’s still on that same kick of violent-minded actions, saying on his radio program recently that Donald Trump could avoid a “citizen’s arrest” by members of his own party by making a “high-profile arrest” of a prominent Democrat.
No reason. It just needs to be done.
“If they wait too long, this is what is going to end up happening if we’re not careful is that you will see some civil unrest,” Taylor said, “because patriots are tired of it. They’re not going to put up with it any more.”
“I’m around the gun community,” he added. “I hear the talk. This talk is beginning to escalate, like the militia-type stuff. They’re getting ready to take up arms and to take things into their own hands if they don’t see something happen. So this is why I’ve been saying they have got to make at least one high-profile arrest. Perp walk the son of a gun, whoever it is. I don’t care who it is, perp walk ’em in handcuffs on national television to set the stage and to let people know, ‘Yes, we are very serious about justice.‘”
Nothing says “we are very serious about justice” more than arresting someone who did nothing wrong just to placate the gullible masses that make up your base.
He’s right about one thing, though: The patriots really are tired. We’re tired of seeing the Constitution trampled on for the sake of creating the fever dream of right-wing Christians. We’re tired of seeing our so-called leader acting like a child on the world stage. And we, too, want to see repercussions for those who jeopardize our democracy through their own crimes.
There is restlessness. But it’s from people who want a country where leaders play by the rules instead of imitating authoritarians because there are no checks and balances anymore.
