Right-wing pundit and professional anti-Semite Rick Wiles has a bizarre prediction about the 2020 presidential election, based on a fictional movie. If Donald Trump wins again, then Democrats will begin shooting at conservatives.
He’s basing that on the film The Hunt, which was scheduled for release last September, but was delayed after multiple mass shootings. Conservatives falsely claimed the film represented liberal elites shooting down Trump supporters, even though the producers insisted that was not the case at all, and the movie was actually a satire about our nation’s political divide.
Enter Wiles, who saw an ad for the film during a recent Democratic debate and still thinks it’s about Democrats trying to “shoot conservative American citizens.”
Edward Szall, co-host of the nightly “TruNews” broadcast, said it was no coincidence that an ad for a film that “depicts politically motivated violence” aired following the end of the Democratic debate last week, and Wiles readily agreed.
“Was this a not-so-subliminal message to the American people?” Wiles asked. “This is what’s coming at the end of the presidential election year: If it doesn’t go our way, we’re going to hunt down and shoot conservative American citizens.”
It must be hard to separate fact from fiction when your career depends on treating them the same.
Wiles always twists and bends logic to stay relevant, though, and he’s been repeatedly rewarded for it. The whole conspiracy feeds into his narrative that Hollywood is owned by the Jews, who are mostly Democrats, therefore the plot must be realistic as he describes it.
It’s ironic, though, that Wiles thinks Democrats are going shoot conservatives with the same guns they want to eliminate.
