Threats of violence: Christian TV Host Rick Wiles warns that “there is going to be violence in America” if Trump is impeached and removed from office.
Appearing on his TruNews program earlier this week Wiles declared that if President Donald Trump is removed from office his supporters who “know how to fight” will target Democratic lawmakers responsible for removing Trump and “hunt them down.”
If they take him out, there is going to be violence in America. There are people in this country—veterans, cowboys, mountain men, guys that know how to fight—and they’re going to make a decision that the people that did this to Donald Trump are not going to get away with it and they’re going to hunt them down.
I’m serious. If these people in Washington think that they are going to get away with it, it’s not going to happen.
The Trump supporters are going to hunt them down. It’s going to happen and this country is going to be plunged into darkness and they brought it upon themselves because they won’t back off.
They are going to go on a rampage and you’re not going to be able to put it back in the bottle.
At that point co-host Edward Szall opined:
Once the blood starts flowing, it’s nearly impossible to stop.
Wiles is a popular but controversial conservative Christian leader prone to making outrageous and idiotic claims.
And last October, right before the 2018 midterm elections, Wiles warned his viewers that if Democrats won the election they would slaughter “tens of thousands of Christians.” Yet even though the Democrats won the House in the midterm election, as of today, there have been no reports of Christians being slaughtered.
Another example of Wiles being a conservative Christian idiot: Last summer the Christian TV host warned his followers that MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was preparing to lead a bloody coup to overthrow the Trump administration.
Needless to say, Maddow did not lead a bloody coup, to the great disappointment of many.
Bottom line: Christian TV Host Rick Wiles warns that “there is going to be violence in America” if Trump is impeached and removed from office.
