Martin Luther King’s family must be absolutely ashamed of his niece, Alveda King, who is a hardcore religious righter and far-right conservative. She also peddles in ridiculous conspiracy theories, the latest of which is that the coronavirus is really a North Korean biological weapon. And of course, she quotes the Bible, which says nothing about the U.S., North Korea or biological weapons.
PETE HEGSETH (CO-HOST): Alveda, you know, we live in a complicated, fallen world. A lot of people wonder, ask things like why. What’s your answer to people as far as the power of prayer in moments like this?
ALVEDA KING (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Well, I really — in my prayer, I say, “God is this you doing this for judgment?” And then I went to Psalms 2, and it says, “The rulers and the kings of the Earth get together and plot and do certain kinds of things.” So, evil people, it seems as though biological warfare was involved in this to some degree. I’m not a conspiracy theorist, and I don’t want to make up anything.
HEGSETH: Yeah, we don’t know that, I get that.
KING: We don’t. But, I said, you know, people, this seems to be human error in handling it. But they say on the back of Lysol can — and that’s not a commercial, you probably can’t find it on the shelves anyway — but coronavirus is listed as something that some of these chemical things like bleach and things like that can handle it. So it seems as though, people, I think this is human error, not God trying to make America in the worst sin.
Well I’m so glad to find out that God isn’t judging us, it’s just a biological weapon. That’s so much better.
