Right-wing pundit and professional anti-Semite Rick Wiles, who recently said COVID-19 was homophobic, isn’t even in his studio right now but that hasn’t stopped him from blaming Jews for anything he can.
On last night’s ”TruNews” episode, he sent a message to Israel that COVID-19 was infecting synagogues — they’re closed in Israel due to the virus — because Jews oppose Jesus Christ.
“Stay out of those things,” Wiles said of the synagogues. “There’s a plague in them. God’s dealing with false religions. God’s dealing with those who oppose his son, Jesus Christ. He’s dealing with the forces of Antichrist. There is a plague moving upon the Earth right now, and the people that are going into the synagogues are coming out with the virus.”“It’s spreading in Israel through the synagogues,” Wiles continued. “God is spreading it in your synagogues! You are under judgment because you oppose his son, Jesus Christ. That is why you have a plague in your synagogues. Repent and believe on the name of Jesus Christ, and the plague will stop.”
Keep in mind most churches have closed, too. But Wiles seems to think the virus hates Jews as much as he does, and that converting to Christianity will somehow end the pandemic.
It’s bad enough Wiles doesn’t understand science. He’s using that ignorance to be a bigot in other ways.
Remember: Rick Wiles still gets press credentials for White House briefings.
