IN a last-ditch attempt to stop Joe Biden from entering the White House on January 20, a bunch of Trumpistas plan to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election by converging on Washington DC on January 6 to blow horns, fast and pray for a miracle.
According to Religion News Service (RNS), organisers of the Jericho March™ have called on “patriots, people of faith and all those who want to take back America” to participate in their monkeyshines.
Marchers intend circling the Supreme Court building seven times while blowing ritual Jewish horns called shofars, aping the Israelites’ siege of the city of Jericho described in the Bible’s Book of Joshua. That will happen on January 5. A day later they plan on repeating this stupidity at the US Capitol building.
The organisers’ website says:
Jericho March™ is comprised of Judeo-Christians collectively praying to God to intercede, expose a particular darkness, and bring about justice. As a community of believers, we take our petitions to heaven, and we know that our mighty and powerful God answers and can move mountains.
Our first Jericho March™ is for election integrity, transparency, and reform to preserve free and fair elections in America for this generation and generations to come – free from any corruption or interference, both foreign and domestic. America is a city on a hill and light to other nations, and God’s favor is still upon her. We are proud of the American system of governance established by our Founding Fathers and we will not let globalists, socialists, and communists destroy our beautiful nation by sidestepping our laws and suppressing the will of the American people through their fraudulent and illegal activities in this election.
Mainstream Media, Big Tech, and corrupt political machines want the world to believe that the 2020 election is over. We have a clear message to them: You do not call elections and this election is far from over. You try to censor the truth, but we know the truth, and our God will reveal the truth.
In mid-December, a rally in Washington organised by the same group of pro-Trump ganatics featured speakers such as MyPillow founder and notorious huckster Mike Lindell, above, and Eric Metaxas, the evangelical author and radio host turned conspiracy theorist.
The same day, members of the far-right militia the Proud Boys burned Black Lives Matter banners at two DC churches.
Metaxas and other evangelical Trump supporters have held a series of evening prayer calls featuring pro-Trump figures such as Michael Flynn, a former presidential adviser who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and was later pardoned by Trump, along with religious leaders who prophesied that Trump would be re-elected.
Their imaginary god did squat to intervene then, so it’s highly unlikely it will do so at this stage of the game.
Jericho March™ organisers said in a statement that they demand that administration officials, including Pence, intervene in the election.
Vice President Pence has the ability to elect the President himself and Jericho March calls on him to exercise his rightful power in the face of the blatant election fraud and corruption.
Several well-known anti-Trump evangelicals, including Southern Baptist author and Bible teacher Beth Moore, above, and author and First Amendment lawyer David French, have denounced the way that evangelical Trump supporters have embraced conspiracy theories.
Moore tweeted in mid-December:
I have never seen anything in these United States of America I found more astonishingly seductive & dangerous to the saints of God than Trumpism. This Christian nationalism is not of God. Move back from it.
