On his “Pray In Jesus Name” program this week, Religious Right activist Gordon Klingenschmitt said that the image created by artist Shepard Fairey of a Muslim woman wearing an American flag hijab is a “demonic image.”
Klingenschmitt was reacting to a recent protest against President Trump’s attempt to ban immigrants and refugees from several predominantly Muslim nations, which he claimed shows that liberals are willing to partner with “the devil” to oppose Trump.
“This image of this American woman wearing an American flag as a hijab is actually the opposite of what they’re trying to make you see,” Klingenschmitt said. “They’re showing this as if it’s the spirit of God, as if it’s the spirit of liberty because the American flag is a symbol of liberty and yet, I’m telling you, they’re showing a demonic image because the hijab is a symbol of slavery, not liberty.”
“You see the demonic alliance between the anti-Trump left and the anti-woman Islamists and they’re joining hands together,” he continued. “When they say, ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend,’ what they’re saying is, ‘The devil is my friend.'”
