Deranged fantasist Rick Wiles is still peddling the utterly bizarre claim that Christians are oppressed in America and are on the verge of being rounded up and murdered by….well, someone. Them. The ubiquitous Them. They’re going to kill Christians just like Hitler killed Jews.
“There is a hatred of Christianity,” Wiles warned. “The homosexuals, the leftists, the socialists, the communists, the deep state in Washington, they hate [the Bible], they’re going to team up with the Muslims, you’re going to have an alliance of God-haters that are coming together to form a new Nazism in America.”
“Right now, what we are experiencing is what the Jews experienced in the ’30s and early ’40s in Nazi Germany,” he continued. “That spirit of Nazism slaughtered millions of Jews, that spirit in here in America. Let me tell you something, it’s going to be different this time. The Christians are going to be rounded up.”Warning that Christians are going to be ostracized and pushed into a “digital ghetto” as their rights are methodically stripped away, Wiles declared that “the ultimate desire of these people in America right now that are in high places of power in this country, the ultimate desire is to kill you. Listen to what I am saying. They are coming for you, they plan to destroy you, they plan to destroy the church, they hate Jesus Christ, they hate you, they hate your children and they are coming for you.”
*yawn* Still? Again? How many times do you get to predict this until you’re no longer taken seriously by anyone? Well, among rational people, he lost all credibility the first time. But among the Christian right, his target audience? There is no limit. He can continue to make the same false prediction again and again and he won’t lose a single follower because the truth does not matter to such people. They are utterly immune to reality, allergic to evidence and logic.
